(1) (4:30pm Dundalk) SISTER BRIDGET was 6/1, now 7/2

Steady improver in three runs for Adrian Murphy, with a second last time out, over C&D last month, when missing out by a nose to Spirit And Glory. That extended mile trip certainly looked the way to go and it would be no surprise to see this filly go close once again. More to come and the market agrees with the interest overnight.

(2) (5:15pm Wolverhampton) GLORIOUS CHARMER was 6/1, now 9/2

Without a win in two and a half years, in some twenty-four runs now, but a recent third of ten did shoe glimpses of a return to better form, when 1.5 lengths adrift of the winner, Western Music at Southwell (6f, a/w), some three weeks ago. He was below that form in his latest, over the same C&D eight days later, whens struggling to find his rhythm and so has a little to prove once again. Each-way potential, but places looks the more likely.

(3) (3:30pm Lingfield) YOU’RE HIRED was 14/1, now 9/1

Showed strong form at the end of last year, with successive wins at Chelmsford, firstly over 1m, in a Class 3 contest and then over 1m 2f in a Class 2 contest, when beating Lucander by a head in November. This looks a tough ask and with the extended trip, needs a strong gallop to at least be on the premises. Place backing looks the obvious choice here.

(4) (4:05pm Lingfield) SUMMEREYES was 20/1, now 10/1

Ed Dunlop’s runner took a while to show some form, before placing third in a nursery at Southwell (1m, a/w), when 2.75 lengths adrift of Cianciana, who has since gone on to place second in two subsequent runs. She struggled with an extended 1m 2f trip last time out, and reverts back to the more familiar mile this afternoon. Hood and cheekpieces are on this afternoon and despite the modest maiden record, she has found favour with punters. Place backing once again, the way forward.

(5) (6:45pm Wolverhampton) BERTOG was 40/1, now 16/1

Only career win came back in the Summer of 2020, but has lost his way since then. A brief period of optimism grew, when placing second here, over C&D a year ago, when 2 lengths adrift of Visibility, but the unreliable nature of John Mackie’s runner was seen last time out, when tenth of twelve at Southwell, a fortnight ago. Expected to struggle, but the market interest does pose a question or two, with a small place bet worth consideration possibly.
