The latest selections
Broken Spear 1pt win only 8/1 (340 Leicester) – 3 runs this term have been slightly underwhelming but he has had his sights lowered considerably here and could well bounce back from todays very workable mark. Will appreciate the under foot conditions today and has gone very close from a 7lb higher mark over this shorter trip on heavy ground previously. Yard don’t send many this way but have won with 2 from the 5 runners at the track.
Tuscan 0.5pt EW 25/1 4 places B365 (345 Haydock) – Has bags of potential given the opposition that he was running against last term for Charlie Hills. Has switched to D O Meara and looks the exact sort that this team excel with. Finished down the field in handicaps on his last 2 starts but had previously done plenty to suggest that this mark is far from beyond him. Connections have signalled their intentions by bringing in local jockey Richard Kingscote and this one can certainly cause an upset today.
Thunder Max 1pt win only 9/2 (130 Haydock) – Has slipped down the weights despite not doing a great deal wrong in against some pretty decent opposition last term. Returns from a year long absence here having been gelded and holds plenty of potential for improvement for a yard going well. Should be winning from this mark if ready to role after the lay off.
Justanotherbottle 1pt win only 17/2 (410 Ripon) – Has won 3 times from just 5 runs at the track albeit over the slightly longer trip of 6F. He does however have more wins over the minimum trip including on the soft conditions they will encounter here. Can be forgiven his latest run when slow away following a mishap with the blindfold and will most likely come on for that outing. Now sits some 5lb below his last winning mark and must go close here.
Oh Herberts Reign 1pt win only 10/1 (515 Ripon) – Needs to step up on recent efforts but is sitting on a very attractive mark given that he gets ideal trip and conditions today. Ran very well to finish a very close second in a very similar race last year under Hollie Doyle who will be riding today. That run came from a mark of 90 and he goes from 74 here today.
Magical Spirit 1pt win only 13/2 (645 Doncaster) – Has been in and out of form over the past 12 months and looks feasibly treated here as a result. Latest run was a big step back in the right direction and he has shown a liking for this track and conditions previously.
