3.50 Pontefract – Global Spirit (1pt win – 11/4 bet365 & William Hill, 5/2 generally)

GLOBAL SPIRIT attempted to get the lead at Ripon from his wide draw and suffered being posted wide when unable to get to the head of affairs early on, but he showed a willing attitude to knuckle down only to be narrowly touched off. The return to this venue today, where he scored in gutsy fashion in a stronger Class 4 event for this column back in April, is a positive. This race lacks any pace, so he should have no trouble dictating matters under Hollie Doyle from a good draw in stall three. It would be disappointing should he not be able to get the run of the race and hold off Tangled for the third time this season in this Veterans’ Handicap.



5.20 Pontefract – Commandment (1pt win – 5/1 William Hill, 9/2 generally)

COMMANDMENT did excellently well from the rear of the field at Yarmouth behind a very well-handicapped rival in Spangled Mac. He was poorly placed as the pace quickened but finished out his race with a power-packed punch and returned to the scene of his latest success; he should be seen to better effect with this stiff finish likely to see the best of him. He is a strong stayer over this six-furlong trip and found the Yarmouth track just too easy for his liking. He is unexposed, and on the upgrade and with a good clip on here, he likely should be finishing best of all from a good draw in stall 4.

3rd 9/2


5:40 Yarmouth – Chamber Choir (1pt win – 9/1 Sky Bet, BetVictor, bet365)

I want to take a bit of a punt on a newcomer – not usually my style – however, John Gosden’s CHAMBER CHOIR makes plenty of appeal on paper being from the Sky Lantern family, and he has targetted this meeting in previous seasons.

Backing his first time out two-year-olds at Yarmouth would have seen an ROI of 73%, and he has a 31% strike rate scoring with 14 of his 45 runners. It’s interesting he starts her off here, and she has a further two 6f entries suggesting she has a bit of speed.


17.40 British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (GBB Race)


19:20 Kempton – White Umbrella (1pt win – 7/1 generally)

The market has underestimated the recent Chepstow victory of WHITE UMBRELLA, and her wide draw in stall 12 might help her sit comfortably off the pace. She showed a bright turn of foot to run down the 1/3f Tarrabb, having travelled smoothly through that Chepstow success and was value for more after coming from off the pace and having to switch wide to make a challenge after stumbling.

There was promise in her run at Windsor when she was unable to get involved from off the pace in a competitive Novice event where it paid to be prominent. She is worth siding with to take another step forward.
