J: Mr William Easterby

T: Tim Easterby

Four-time Flat winner (1m2f/1m4f) whose hurdle debut fourth at Newcastle (2m1f, soft) wasn't without promise; improvement required but the step up in trip may be a plus (stayed 2m on the Flat); not ruled out each-way.

11st 5lb

J: Chris Ward

T: Deborah Cole

Showed a fair level of ability in three races on soft/heavy last winter, notably a success in bumper (debut) and close second in 2m3f novice hurdle, both at Warwick; still unexposed and looks a nice prospect for Deborah Cole; bang there on ratings.

Made the frame in two good-ground course bumpers in the spring, latterly when second (no match for winner) behind an exciting prospect; others in this line-up appeal more, though.

Off the mark in his fourth British point but could only manage mid-division in a Warwick bumper (soft) when 28-1; unlikely to be good enough for this.

Trip Switch

11st 2lb

J: Bridget Andrews

T: Dan Skelton

Well beaten in his three Irish maiden points over 3m but shaped as though perhaps not having the necessary stamina; has joined top yard for rules career and could go well over this shorter trip.

10/1

Verdict

He found one just too good when odds-on here last month but GEORGES SAINT certainly didn’t run badly that day, and his earlier handicap second makes him the one to beat. Hauraki Gulf also has good form claims but this is his first run for 11 months and a bigger threat to the selection may come from Cuthbert Dibble, who ought to be suited by today’s step up in trip.[Chris Wilson]
