All races are offering three places, except Race 6 (2 places)
Race 1 (12:45pm) SANDHOE
Has improved significantly in three starts so far, culminating in the victory over C&D four weeks ago, when beating Gift List by a head, in a first trip over 6f. Has a 7lbs penalty to defy this afternoon, but should be in the hunt once again, with potentially more to come.
Race 2 (1:15pm) CITRON MAJOR
After an extended break, he returned with a solid fifth at Newmarket back in June, but seemed to go backwards in three subsequent runs. However, that changed last time out, when taking the victory over C&D by a length to Afandem. Faces a tough test, with Gunmetal and Staxton among the main threats but is well treated by a 5lbs rise and has won two of four visits here, so has plenty of respect.
Race 3 (1:45pm) GAMESOME
Four victories from sixty-one isn’t great, but three of those victories have come in the last twelve starts, so a clearly marked improvement has been seen over the last year. Returned with some poor runs in Class 5’s at Thirsk and Musselburgh, before clicking into gear and taking the spoils at Haydock in a Class 4, when winning by a neck. Drops back in class and is only 2lbs heavier, so should feature if replicating that performance.
Race 4 (2:20pm) INFANT HERCULES
Consistent performer in three career starts (all over 7f). Picked up a third at Thirsk, before a second at Musselburgh, when 7 lengths off odds-on favourite Night Moment. He finished fourth at Catterick last time out, but stayed on well fifteen days ago, with the extension to a mile on this nursery debut, likely to bring more out of him. A solid option here.
Race 5 (2:50pm) CLEARANCE
Picked up a hat-trick last Summer, confirming the treble, with a win over C&D and has looked great since returning to action, with a second at Beverley (2m, good), before taking the victory at Musselburgh last month (1m 7f, good), beating Kensington Art by half a length. Rises 8lbs this afternoon, which could counter his strong finishing, but looks the most likely to challenge Repetitio.
Race 6 (3:20pm) FISHABLE
Had a couple of strong performances over 7f and 1m, before extending to 1m 2f on handicap debut here two weeks ago, beating race rival Scottish Summit by 3.25 lengths, despite looking green at times. Faces a penalty for this race, but more expected progression should negate the rise. Should go close.
