In a race where those with experience don’t set an exacting standard, it looks worth siding with first-time starter Slipshod. Trainer Norman McKnight has a good record with debutants, so the selection should be fully tuned up for his racecourse unveiling. The exposed Trinity Thundah may be the one to grab second spot.
Rideforthecause looks to have been somewhat underestimated in the betting for this allowance optional claimer. Her figures make her competitive in here, and the fourth-place finish she achieved last time suggests she may just be coming to the boil. Above All Names and Street Zapper head up the shortlist of the remainder.
