3.45 Worcester – LALLYGAG (1pt win – 13/2 888Sport, 6/1 William Hill)

LALLYGAG has not lived up to the promise of his close second to the now-157 rated Grey Dawning at Exeter in late 2022, scoring just once from his subsequent 11 starts. However, he failed to take to fences in two of those runs and hated the soft ground in another. His last two defeats can also be forgiven – he ran out when travelling strongly under 7lb conditional Olive Nicholls at Newton Abbot last time who lost her irons when Paul Nicholls’ seven-year-old finished runner-up at Worcester on her penultimate outing. Harry Cobden takes over today and the cheekpieces go on for the first time. His trainer has a good record when using this headgear, especially on runners who finished fourth or worse last time out. Since 2010, 37 of the 152 qualifiers have won (24.3% strike-rate) for a profit of £72.01 to a £1 level stake at SP (expected winners = 23.22, A/E = 1.59).

7.25 Ripon – MAKALU (1.5pt win, 3/1 bet365, 11/4 generally)

This 1m Class 5 handicap is going to be fascinating from a tactical perspective, with front-runners Garden Oasis (stall 1) and Havana Prince (stall 2) likely to take each other on from the outset. This could tee things up nicely for Ruth Carr’s MAKALU, who came late to score at Beverley last time. Having scored just once in his first 18 starts for hic current yard, the penny has really dropped this year and the five-year-old has landed three of his five start in 2024. That might have been four had he not been badly hampered against the inside rail when eighth to Garden Oasis over course and distance on his penultimate start and he can reverse the form.
