GOLDIE HAWK – (2.15 Yarmouth, 0.5pt each-way, 50/1)
I was procrastinating over whether to tip GOLDIE HAWK here and then I saw she was available at a massive price and simply had to get involved. She’s suited by big fields, recording form figures of 411119 (4-6) in fields of ten or more runners and I’m happy to forgive her last-time out York defeat as she was closer to the front end than ideal and possibly just failed to handle the track.
She has plenty to find on official ratings but we’ve had shock winners with similar profiles in this race previously and three of her last four defeats have been followed by a win. She’s joint second-best on Raceform’s speed figures and a strong pace could see her in contention late.
BULLACE – (3.30 Sandown, 1pt win, 12/1)
Backing three-year-old colts and fillies in this race would have hit the winner eight times from 22 bets and made a profit of £22.74 to a £1 level stake at SP. There are two qualifiers this year and I’m going to side with BULLACE, the biggest price of the pair (the other qualifier is Mostahdaf).
Ralph Beckett’s colt failed to handle Group 1 company at Royal Ascot when 33/1 for the St James’s Palace Stakes and has been freshened up since.
ALETOILE – (3.50 Yarmouth, 1pt each-way, 15/2)
ALETOILE did well to finish second in a 7f handicap here last time, as his forcing style was at a disadvantage. The winner, third and fourth all came from well off the pace and he beat the next prominent racer – the 16/5 favourite Purple Power – by more than three lengths.
He’s now a ten-race maiden but has only had two runs for current trainer Chris Dwyer and will appreciate the return to this longer trip, having placed over much farther when with Mark Johnston. His trainer is enjoying a good spell, the wind is forecast to be behind them today and it looks as though he might be in receipt of an easy lead.
HARSTON – (5.10 Sandown, 2pt win, 3/1)
I put HARSTON up as a 2pt win bet when she made her handicap debut at Lingfield last time where she scored with more in hand than the three-quarters of a length winning margin suggested.
She was a big eyecatcher at Nottingham on her penultimate start, finishing a 40/1 fifth of 12 in a 1m2f novice contest and doing best of those to come from off the pace and clocking a fast time in the process. She’s only gone up by 3lb to a mark of 69 and that seems on the generous side.
