track-bia14s-diary-v2GURKHA FRIEND (stall five of ten) has made all in the past two renewals of Ripon’s Wilmot-Smith Memorial Handicap and is taken to complete his hat-trick on Sunday (4.20).

The seven-year-old faces potential competition for the lead from Just Hiss (stall six) but is drawn closer to the rail than that rival and should be able to get across.
