1:30 – Poker School – 11/4 @ Ladbrokes or 5/2 – Gen – Has been knocking on the door on his last two starts in handicap chases and has dropped to a winnable mark. Step back to 2m 4 ½ f will be in the 9-year-old favour as is good ground, three career wins on such going. Three from three at the track, including C&D.
3:45 – Speed Company – 3/1 @ William Hill or 11/4 – Gen – The 6-year-old’s form figures over hurdles since joining trainer Ian Williams are now 233. Looked the winner coming to the last at Doncaster on his most recent start but didn’t find as much as was expected. Gets the first-time tongue tie today and looks capable of winning a handicap hurdle off his present mark.
12:40 – Mercer’s Troop – 3/1 @ William Hill & Ladbrokes – Improved for the step into handicap hurdle company at Plumpton 26-days ago. Beaten five lengths that day but the 4-year-old would have gone close before making a mistake at the last. Capable of going one better today.
