Only Related gave us a return on Saturday when he was placed at Goodwood.
3.00 – Ripon – Daawy. 2.5 pts win. Available at 5/1.
Only the seven runners for this 10 furlong handicap but a very competitive affair nonetheless. Slight preference is for Daawy who hasn’t won as many races as he should have. He has just the one victory from twelve starts to his name but that came in a Maiden over this C/D and he has run well on two of his three subsequent runs over the same C/D. His only disappointment in those four outings came on his seasonal reappearance and stable debut back in April, a race which was probably needed. He went close from a seven pound higher mark last Summer so he is weighted to get competitive and he went close from just a three pound lower mark last time out. He is versatile regarding ground conditions and the cheekpieces are retained.
5.40 – Carlisle – Kingstreet Lady. 1.75 pts win. Available at 7/1.
A Furlong handicap for lady Pro-Am riders. preference is for Kingstreet Lady who has the useful Jane Elliott on board. She wasn’t at her best over six furlongs in a better race at Thirsk last time out but she had run up a highly creditable sequence of performances prior to that. A victory and four seconds from nine starts on grass this season included a near miss over C/D early last month when partnered by tonight’s jockey. That represented a career best and she is just one pound higher this evening. Most of her best performances have come on quick ground, so the drying conditions are in her favour and, although the yard are not currently finding winning easy, they send just the one to this track today.
6.30 – Windsor – Buridan. 2 pts win. Available at 11/2.
7.15 – Carlisle – Ladies First. 1.75 pts win. Available at 15/2.
