Cases can be made for some. At the top of the list is Gainsbourg (nap), who was denied a flawless run on his handicap debut at Ripon as third by this brand and has since won a newcomer to Hamilton. Prince Ali is another unlucky one on his only handicap outing and he’s second pick, ahead of recent Thirsk winners Golden Melody and the in shape State Patrol.
8.52: time interval
Roger Charlton has his team all right, so Time interval (nap), which is not exposed at 1m2f, would like to build on the great success of last month in Leicester. Fox Leicester won well on Lingfields Polytrack under Silvestre De Sousa on his only previous attempt on 1m2f, making it the second choice ahead of Eaglesglen.
2.10: Great Havana
Mezzanotte will be a tough nut to crack when she returns to the form she showed when she finished second at Lingfield two starts ago but is one with significant potential Great Havana (nap)who has shaped twice with promises above 6f and seems very likely to benefit from today’s increase in trip. Three dons complete the shortlist.
6.38: The lawyer
Five of them met in Newcastle two weeks ago and they can all get some kind of chance but from a different line of form The lawyer (nap) makes some resonance after his Leicester win on Sunday was reinforced by second place. As long as his draw doesn’t count against him, he is allowed to continue playing. His old rival Golden Force could be the main threat.
4.05: Sir Busker
Judged by reviews Sir Busker (nap) has a good chance of a first group win, provided he is in top form. Solid Stone looks an obvious danger on the figures, while the 3yos Megallan and Perotto also deserve respect.
