LETMESTOPYOUTHERE (stall 5 of 6) takes while to hit top gear and has a poor record when racing around a turn, recording form figures of: 0625488768 (0-10). On straight tracks, or those with a slight dog-leg, his record is far more encouraging: 1275940212 (2-10).
It’s a big advantage to be drawn low in 1m2f handicaps at Pontefract, even in small fields, and KINGTHISTLE (stall 1 of 6) looks the way to go in the Bet totequadpot Handicap on Sunday (3.00).

There’s not a huge amount of early pace on offer in the Wokingham Stakes but Jim Crowley is likely to steer the front-running Muntadab (stall 17 of 29) towards the stands’ rail and he could help set things up for those drawn high. PROJECTION (stall 28 of 29) looks well berthed and can be expected to improve for his comeback run when sixth of 14 at Newmarket last month. This track should suit and the Roger Charlton is flying at present, with six winners from his last 11 runners. 3lb claimer Kieran Shoemark steered the yard’s Atty Persse to victory here on Thursday and the young jockey’s last seven rides for the yard have yielded form figures of: 1111011 (6-7).
The last seven winners of the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes (Royal Ascot 3.40) were four-year-olds who had finished first or second last-time out and the William Haggas-trained DAL HARRAILD (stall 6 of 13), the only one to fit the trends, looks worth chancing at double-figure odds despite the trip looking on the short side.
