image-left-align track-bias-diary-v2KNOW THE TRUTH (stall 4 of 9) caught the eye when fourth at Windsor last time, doing best of those to come from off the pace (first three received the comments ‘with leaders’, ‘pressed leaders’ and ‘fast away, led’). The Andrew Balding-trained three-year-old was ridden by a very inexperienced 7lb claimer that day and might do better now switched to Fibresand for the 7f Compare Horse Racing Odds @ bookies.com Maiden Stakes (2.30).

Scott Dixon has his string in good form, with two winners (12-1 and 8-1) from six runners in the past fortnight (the others all started at 33-1 or bigger), and his COISTE BODHAR (stall 10 of 12) is worth an interest in division one of the 6f bookmakers.co.uk Free Bets Handicap (3.40). The six-year-old is usually ridden prominently but had no chance under a patient ride at Redcar last time. He won at 14-1 when last racing in a Class 6 course and distance handicap and there’s not a huge amount of pace in today’s race.
