(1) (3:50pm Beverley) WILLIAM ALEXANDER was 5/1, now 2/1
Failed to really show great form in first half dozen career starts, but finally grabbed a maiden victory, when taking the spoils in an apprentice classified stakes over C&D (good) six days ago, beating race today’s rival, Stone Mason, by 2.5 lengths. Gavin Ashton claims 7lbs and thus negates any penalty for this handicap race and looks to have a huge opportunity for two in a row.
(2) (7:10pm Newcastle) ROCKET DANCER was 11/1, now 4/1.
Looked good on stable and season debut at Beverley (7f, good) in June, when fourth, albeit 5.25 lengths adrift of the winner. Has failed to capitalise on that run since, but improvement in latest at Musselburgh (1m, good) when sixth, at leat shows he is going in the right direction. Support in market, although regular rider Cam Hardie has chosen another runner here.
(3) (3:05pm Lingfield) DESERT EMPIRE was 10/1, now 5/1
A Vadamas gelding, out of Got to Dance, with dam a half-sister to Group placed Carry On Deryck and Listed placed runner Tarboosh. Was entered for next year’s Derby, but gelding as negated that opportunity, so definitely one to keep an eye on. Plenty of market interest and with Tom Marquand onboard, has a strong chance.
(4) (5:30pm Listowel) BEST ON STAGE was 16/1, now 6/1
Mostly raced in Germany, including second in a listed fillies race at Hanover (1m, good) last year. Brought over to Ireland under the Paddy Twomey’s yard and as not had the best of runs in his two starts, finishing eight listed company at Killarney (1m, yielding) in July, finishing 4.75 lengths adrift and then eighth again, this time in the Ulster Oaks at Down Royal (1m 2f, yielding), finishing 9 length behind. A better draw and conditions will help, but needs to show more. Backed in well and capable of surprising.
(5) (4:55pm Beverley) FIRST RESPONSE was 14/1, now 8/1
Has won three times on the all-weather, but has a poor record on turf and is now 0-13. Finished eighth (of twenty) at Doncaster (1m, good), but did finish relatively strongly, so today’s 1m 2f trip looks more suitable, as does drop in class. Each-way claims looks the way forward, for this Kevin Stott ride.
