Venetia Williams' five-year old has been disappointing on each of his five runs in England since his switch from France where he was a dual winner. As a result of those poor performances he now drops to a handicap mark of just 99 and with his trainer's string in good form, the morning money could be significant in what looks a poor race. He tackles two and a half miles for the first time today and if the step up in trip works the oracle, he could well take this.
Amroth Bay has been the best backed horse of the day, dropping back in trip after perhaps not seeing out staying distances recently despite running some decent races in defeat. Jennie Candlish's nine-year-old has often raced prominently over longer trips, so the drop in distance isn't too much of a worry, and now that the handicapper has given him some rope, he could be interesting off a handicap mark just three pounds higher than when bolting up at Stratford last year.
This one could be a nicely handicapped horse in a decent little race. Last time out he stepped up to today's trip of three miles for the first time and ran with credit behind a couple of useful sorts from good yards and his previous form means he should be better than a mark of 114. The talented Micheal Nolan also takes off an additional 5lb and a big run looks in order today. The only slight negative would be that his trainer has sent out just the one horse recently, but that did finish second.
