6/1 (Won)

  • Win: £4.34
  • Place: £1.70

Form: 18-745 D

Last run: 9 days

W: 10st 2lb

4 yo Colt

OR: 67

Form & Verdict

Free-going front-runner who's back around his last successful mark and drawn to attack under Rossa Ryan (0-3 for the yard); went hard enough over 6f in first-time blinkers (retained) latest and looks to have plenty in his favour.

3 yo Filly

OR: 66

Form & Verdict

Better since returned to turf and today's stiffer 5f should suit on the evidence of her recent Thirsk win for Billy Loughnane off 4lb lower; yard has been in good form and she should go well again.

Form: 540124 D BF

Last run: 7 days

W: 9st 7lb

4 yo Colt

OR: 58

Form & Verdict

Held a couple of times off his revised mark since his Musselburgh beating of Havagomecca (6lb worse off), latterly at a short price in a less competitive handicap a week ago (always done for toe after a slow break); needs much more from stall 11.

4 yo Gelding

OR: 66

Form & Verdict

Has continued in form since his Tapeta win off 3lb lower and goes well for Brandon Wilkie (6122314); is often ridden from off the pace and will always need some luck but holds claims back down from 6f should things pan out right.

5 yo Colt

OR: 61

Form & Verdict

Useful 2yo (second in the Group 2 Gimcrack) who's tumbled down the weights in recent times; been a long time since he even finished placed and he never looked like justifying support last time.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 66

Form & Verdict

Consistent gelding whose Beverley win this time last year for Kevin Ryan came off an 8lb higher mark; is ideally suited by a stiff 5f and has to enter calculations, back to blinkers from cheekpieces, after a solid effort last time.

W: 9st 9lb

3 yo Colt

OR: 65

Form & Verdict

Did well to win from a wide stall over an easy 5f early last month and is closely matched with Glory Hyde on latest Thirsk running (5lb better off); is one to consider in an open handicap.

6 yo Filly

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Has regressed in the past year but found her level again now, faring better when second to Protest Rally at Musselburgh last time; that came in a less competitive handicap round a course she likes but she's considered.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 64

Form & Verdict

Has tended to be kept to easier tracks but has plenty in his favour otherwise, with him well handicapped and back in form (race didn't pan out his way last time); should go well.

W: 9st 3lb

5 yo Gelding

OR: 54

Form & Verdict

Longstanding, regressive maiden who's missed a few chunks of his career and returns from another five months off today; nothing from this yard can be discounted currently but he isn't obviously fancied having just a second crack at 5f.

J: Andrew Mullen

0-16, but has caught the eye in staying on steadily to finish sixth in both starts at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) since joining this yard; down another 2lb and his best efforts have come over this trip; interesting.

4 yo Colt

OR: 59

Form & Verdict

Ex-William Haggas maiden who's regressed this year; the reapplication of headgear (first-time eyeshield) is the main angle in with him but he's hard to recommend otherwise.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

At his best this time last year and bounced back for Rhys Elliott off a 2lb lower mark in May; was some way below that level last time, however, and stall 12 is as bad as it gets for a front-runner.
