Has been winning doing handstands the last twice and this looks another good opportunity. When you’re in these amateur races you need the best on your side and we have that in Miss S Brotherton. The daughter of Canford Cliffs can enhance her paddock value again by going in here.
Was a 16/1 shot when winning on debut last season and also a double-figure price on his return in a class three handicap at HQ. He gave it away at the start that day and we can put that down to him being a touch rusty as he hadn’t run for 13 months. Obviously saves his best for the track and can win again despite a 2lb hike in the ratings.
One of two Newmarket raiders making the trek north and big Johnny G’s filly put up a fair effort on debut at Doncaster when not knocked about. She’s bred to be much better than a rating of 77 & that is where the bar is set. We often talk about finding a winnable race and this could be one of those.
As the old saying goes, keep yourself in the best of company & your horses in the worst!
Faster ground and the mile trip were perfect last time when he won over course & distance. He was nudged up 4lbs for that success which seems very fair as he was well on top at the business end. He looks to have conditions in his favour again, and he hasn’t won a bad race since been gelded, winning two from four.
Kevin Ryan’s colt acts very well on this sharp, left-handed undulating circuit. Both his tries here are solid with a win and a second and is drawn close to the paint again like his previous win here.
If he can hold a handy pitch early on, this 7f trip looks another good opportunity.
