Top tipster Andrew Mount was in double winning form on Derby Day and has three selections for Monday’s racing
SHANTOU VILLAGE – 3.00 Uttoxeter
SHANTOU VILLAGE has a poor record in big fields, scoring just once from 14 starts in fields of 12 or more runners and that was when even-money favourite at Wetherby back in March 2015. In fields of 11 or less, his record reads 11211F1141 (7-10) and he has his ideal conditions for the first time since landing a handicap chase at Worcester off a mark of 139 in August 2018. He’s back in Class 3 company for the first time since that win and is 8lb lower today.
GLASSES UP – 3.45 Ayr
Colony Queen has won four of her last five starts but she might have been a shade flattered at Beverley last time, as she challenged on the outside where the ground was fastest. Take her on with course expert GLASSES UP, who clocked a very fast time according to Raceform when successful over one mile here last month, his second run back from a break. His full course record now reads 61411785354421 (4-14) for a profit of £32.25 to a £1 level stake at SP. In June or July only, those figures improve to 6141135441 (4-10). When returned to the track between eight and 21 days since his latest outing, as he is here, his Ayr figures in June/July become 111541 (4-6).
SHE’S A BELTER – 8.00 Thirsk
Stalls 1 and 2 have a terrible record in big-field handicaps over the 7f and 1m trips at Thirsk, with the two lowest-drawn runners providing just two winners from 166 runners in fields of 14+ since 2010. Aiden’s Reward (stall 2 of 14) went close over course and distance from stall 9 of 9 on his latest start but will find life much tougher today in his bid for a first turf win. I’d rather side with SHE’S A BELTER who raced on the inside rail when an 18-1 fourth on her handicap debut in the same race as Aiden’s Reward. She has a better draw in stall 6 today.
