Mick Channon: Gamble on Ballyliffen

1.10 Leicester - Nom De Guerre 4/1 from 6/1

Ben De Haan's formerly useful novice chaser lines up in this handicap of a mark of just 105, having been rated as high as 128 in the past. He travelled well enough on his reappearance a month ago before his fitness ebbed away and if he can return to anything like his old form then he could well be in the winners enclosure this afternoon.

1.50 Plumpton - Ballylifen 9/4 from 9/2

Ballylifen has been backed to finally break his maiden tag after seven attempts under rules, in which he has never been out of the top three. He has his second run for Mick Channon after leaving the recently retired Henrietta Knight, which is an angle that could well be profitable, and if he is to run to the form of his last race then he should be on the premises come the finish.

5.00 Wolverhampton - Gabrials King 5/1 from 13/2

Was well backed when scoring last time when upped in trip to a mile and six and has been backed to score again today when again upped in trip to two miles. Ian Williams' three-year-old has raced seven times at Wolverhampton and has finished in the first two on six of those occasions, winning four of those. He holds a leading chance in receipt of the nine pounds weight allowance.
