(1) (4:30pm Market Rasen) DOYOUKNOWWHATIMEAN was 9/2, now 5/2
Made a promising start, on debut at Worcester 2m, soft) in a bumper back in October, when third of ten and 5 lengths adrift of the winner, despite some greenness in that performance. He struggled in the latest, when last but one in a Listed contest at Ascot and being eased down, when clearly no chances of featuring. Drops right back to Class 5 level here today, which should see him feature this time around. Market backing also encourages more than a glance.
(2) (7:30pm Southwell) PLUPERFECT was 10/3, now 5/2
A four race maiden so far, for team Gosden, with the best performance of the lot, coming in the latest at Wolverhampton (7f, a/w), when third of seven, eight days ago, some 2.5 lengths adrift of the winner, El Bello. Arguably needs to show a little more, but market backing in what looks to be a competitive contest, is telling here.
(3) (8:00pm Southwell) ABOVE IT ALL was 5/1, now 11/4
Ed Walker’s charge has shown improvement in all six runs so far, culminating in a place finish, last time out at Lingfield (7f, a/w), when third and just 1.5 lengths behind winner, Burabeck, back in December. Makes Tapeta debut this evening and has found backing on the boards overnight. Gidwa looks a big threat to any success here, but this 3-yo is expected to go well once again.
(4) (2:20pm Navan) ASHDALE BOB was 7/1, now 4/1
Two time winner at this venue and winner of a Grade 2 hurdle at Fairyhouse (2m 4f, yielding), back in April of last year, when beating Decimation by a neck. Has placed three times in five starts since, including at Gowran Park (3m, soft) in the Grade 2 – Galmoy Hurdle, twenty-six days ago and looks set for another good showing here. Worthy outright selection, but each-way caution may be worth considering in this strong contest.
(5) (3:55pm Navan) DRAGONS PASS was 10/1, now 6/1
A single victory in twenty-one starts so far, with that win, coming back in November 2020. Form had dipped since a fourth here, a year ago (2m 5f, heavy). Finished last but one, back in December here and needs to show a fair amount more this afternoon, albeit in this lesser contest, Tongue strap is fitted for the first time and looks a decent place option at best.
