4:20pm Yarmouth Youngs Cityscape Handicap (Class 3) 1m2f

The Corporal is two-from-two over course-and-distance and Chris Wall’s charge is respected as he looks to complete a Yarmouth hat-trick. This is a big leap in quality compared to what he’s been in with before though, and he was well-beaten off this mark at Sandown three weeks ago.

Harrovian drops back in class after finishing third of four in a good quality handicap at Goodwood. John Gosden has a fine record here at Yarmouth and he will have high hopes for his three-year-old. Harrovian, however, could have his hands full with CARDANO (NAP), who has been steadily improving throughout the season and could secure a career-best victory here on Thursday.

After beginning his career on the all-weather during the winter, Cardano has won four of his eight starts in handicaps on turf, finishing inside the places on the other four occasions. Ian Williams’ charge is two-out-of-two on good-to-firm going too, winning at Newmarket in June before securing a second victory on the July Course last time out.

On his penultimate start, Cardano attempted to make all in a Class Three handicap at Redcar, but was reeled in by the impressive Country, who went on to run well in an ITV Handicap at Sandown on Solario Stakes day. The third past the post that day was Noble Prospector and he’s boosted Cardano’s run with two victories of his own since.

Ryan Moore’s mount has gone up three-pounds for his latest victory, meaning he’ll run off a career-high mark of 88. The runner-up, Bint Soghaan hardly advertised the form of that race on his second start, but Cardano has proven himself to be a versatile, consistent handicapper this term and he’s twice clocked an RPR in excess of his during official rating. He could take all the beating.
