The latest selections
Frog And Toad 0.5pt EW 28/1 5places B365 (335 Wetherby) – Has to be forgiven last run on yard debut having reared in the stalls giving away around 15 lengths at the start. Proved to be a pretty versatile performer last term picking up a couple of wins on good/good to firm ground as well as a nice placed effort on soft. Sits 3lb below his last winning mark and this yard have started the season well and it looks foolish to have been written off here.
Shark Two One 1pt win only 10/1 (435 Wetherby) – Has a few questions to answer over this shorter trip but sits on a mark some 17lb below his 2nd at this time last year for Richard Fahey over 1/2 furlong further in similar conditions. Has not seemed to have enjoyed a spell on the AW and could well prove to be a different proposition here returning to turf. Has gone best when ridden prominently in the past and could prove a tough one to get past if getting an easy lead.
Knightswood 1pt win only 9/1 (515 Musselburgh) – Didn’t really progress last term having shown plenty of promise picking up back to back novice events at the start of last season. The latter of those two races looks to be a fair level of form which would put this one on a pretty fair mark should he be able to kick on this term having been gelded. Still looks fairly unexposed and went well fresh last term.
Manigordo 1pt win only 16/1 (615 Musselburgh) – A dual CD winner last summer who if ready to roll here could well still be fairly treated from todays mark dipping in grade. Could be in need of the run which is a slight worry but has won on reappearance previously albeit back in 2020 with Richard Hannon. Was last seen running a big race from todays mark in better company and improvement cannot be ruled out either. 4 places can be found but we have gone for the win.
Papa Don’t Preach 0.5pt EW 25/1 4 places Skybet (405 Wetherby) – This one was 4th in the Flying Childers G2 back in 2021 for his French connections and won at the first time of asking for Charlie Hills when switching yards. Failed to live up to that promise however and has since been moved on again to a smaller yard who have managed to squeeze a win out of him on the AW this year. Has come up a little short in two runs since but could still have plenty to offer with conditions looking likely to suit here. Yard are 5/16 for a 31% strike at this track and Rossa Ryan looks a solid booking too.
