5.20 Pontefract – CORINTHIA KNIGHT (1pt win – 11/1 Paddy Power + Betfair, 8/1 William Hill) + GOLDEN APOLLO (1pt win – 12/1 Bet365, 11/1 generally)

Morning gamble CORINTHIA KNIGHT (stall 1 of 14) had what turned out to be the worst of the draw and never had a prayer after taking the far side route when all the action – and the faster ground – was stands’ side in the course and distance handicap won by Gannon Glory on July 3rd. Archie Watson’s eight-year-old was caught wide when fifth of 13 here next time and stall 3 looks ideal in his bid to win this race for the second successive year.

Tim Easterby’s GOLDEN APOLLO has yet to score this season, but he suggested his turn was near when a close-up fourth from a difficult draw over his optimum 6f trip at Ayr in late June when we were on each-way. He’s run creditably in mid-division over 7f in his two subsequent starts, most recently when a 28-1 ninth of 17 at York, and the return to 6f looks a good idea. The veteran has form figures of 11503336014 (3-11) when cutting back from 7f to 6f (+£22.50 to a £1 level stake at SP) and his trainer has been in great form in the last few days, firing in a double at Haydock on Sunday and again at Ripon on Monday.

7.50 Yarmouth – HARRY WITH STYLE (1pt E/W – 7/1 generally)

The front-runners never came back in the 5f Pertemps Medical Operating Theatres Handicap at Newmarket on July 21st, with Isle Of Lismore (‘made virtually all’) scoring by two lengths from Skallywag Bay (‘pressed winner’). HARRY WITH STYLE (‘midfield, ridden and headway over 1f out, kept on’) fared best of the hold-up horses in a three-length third and built on that when filling the same position over the same course and distance next time. He returns to the scene of his latest success and will be hard to keep out of the first three.
