*Odds correct at time of posting – 9:58am Tuesday 20th September*

Greg The Great (1.00 Lingfield) – 17/2

GREG THE GREAT has a solid record in handicaps (3-6) and looks to have a good opportunity of improving that record here. He won easily on his sole visit here back in July with George Downing on board, and he’s since won at Chepstow and ran well in defeat in a better race at Salisbury last time out. 

He was over two lengths clear of his rivals when winning impressively off of top weight here back in July, and followed that up with a good win at Chepstow (following a stewards enquiry), but the pair had pulled well clear of the rest. 

He stepped up to class 4 company in his most recent run, when a well beaten third at Salisbury. The runner-up that day (Be Lucky My Son) has since gone close in a class 3 and the winner (Leuven Power) was tried in class 2 company, so the form has worked out nicely. 

The biggest danger will likely be Angel’s Whisper, who won comfortably on turf last time out. However, she hasn’t run on the AW since disappointing in January and at the odds we’d sooner side with Greg The Great to continue his excellent handicap record.

Gidwa (2.45 Lingfield) – 6/1

This looks a wide open race, but we’re keen on the chances of GIDWA. He was only denied by a neck at Kempton earlier this month and is only 1lb higher here. 

He finished ahead of both Peggoty and Macchiavello that day, yet both are shorter than him in the betting today. That was a solid run and he didn’t have the clearest of paths, so he could’ve easily finished even further clear of those rivals that day. With a clear run here, we expect him to go extremely close. 

Swiss Pride has a solid record over C&D and is likely to be a big danger, but he does have the widest draw here, which will be a negative to his chances. Gidwa looks the safer option and he rates as one of the more confident bets on the card.

Sh Boom (4.20 Listowel) – 9/1

Providing the draw doesn’t hinder her, the Listed feature at Listowel can go to Ger Lyon’s SH BOOM. She’s been running well in better races this year and will appreciate the drop in class here. 

Her fourth in the Group 3 Fairy Bridge Stakes last month was a solid effort, and the form has worked out nicely, with the fifth placed Galleria Borghese since finishing in the places in Group 2 company. 

Colin Keane stays on board her and that’s a big positive to our selections chances. The step up in trip should suit her and the drop back into Listed company can see her gain a long overdue victory.

Qipao (4.37 Beverley) – 5/1

Trainers Charlie & Mark Johnston have a healthy 25% strike-rate at Beverley this year, and they can improve that record with recent C&D scorer QIPAO, who looks the most solid option to take on the market leader Autumn Festival. 

He was the rank outsider that day, but raced prominently and deservedly got the better of the odds-on favourite Liberation Point. The third-placed Reputation is the only one to have run since, and he gave the form a timely boost with a cosy win at Thirsk earlier this month.

Autumn Festival is seeking a four-timer here and is sure to be in the mix, but he’s on a career high mark now and we’re happy to take him on with Qipao.
