I haven’t ridden him before but he looks a good ride to pick up, as 5f on fast ground clearly suits him well and he comes here after a second at Chepstow earlier in the month. He races off the same mark here, so he looks to have as good a chance as any in this sprint handicap.
She is the joint highest-rated filly in here and looks to hold a leading chance. She proved herself a smart performer when placed in Group 3 and Listed company last season and reappeared to post another solid effort in that grade when sixth to Dabyah in the Fred Darling. The step back down to this 6f trip looked as though it would suit her, and I think she will go close, albeit this is a very competitive field where you can give plenty a chance.
He is very well-related and he shaped really nicely here on his return, his handicap debut and his first start since being gelded. He took a while to get organised and find his stride there, and this extra 2f is very much in his favour. Off just a 3lb higher mark, I would hope that he would be capable of going close to winning.
I rode her on her first start for Robert [Cowell] at Yarmouth earlier in the week, and she did it really nicely for me. It was only a five-runner 5f maiden but she could do no more than win as she did, and I think a mark of 67 gives her definite possibilities here with conditions to suit. I hope so as I have come here from Nottingham to ride her!
Pick Of Any
This horse’s chance doesn’t look as obvious as Ocelot’s but he didn’t run badly for me at Wolverhampton last time, and in fact he has run well on all three starts since switching stables to David’s. His Irish turf form suggests he may prefer the ground a bit easier, though.
