Not raced under rules for over 900 days (November 2015) and was last seen in action winning a 3m Hexham Point-to-Point for Gary Rutherford in May 2017.

Lightly raced and went close from a 2lb lower mark at Musselburgh in January on his penultimate start (2m4f soft) when beaten a short-head by Nefyn Bay; good ground point winner in April 2017.

Failed to complete in three starts for this handler since arriving from Ireland for £8,000 (ex Noel Meade). Sports first time cheek-pieces.

Not stood all that much racing for his age with both chasing successes coming across at Ayr (2m4f soft). Ground conditions will be very different to what he encountered at Newcastle last month.

Struggling lately, but theoretically sits on a mark which should make him competitive. Not won for over 15 months when staying on strongly to score by 2L from Casual Cavalier at Ayr (2m soft).

9/4
A Sedgefield winner for Charlie Longsdon (2m3f good) in August 2016, but it's been a case of barren times since. Falling sharply down the weights, but with good reason. Offered a bit more of a glimmer at Hexham latest.

Now 0 from 14 under rules, and has shown very little in four starts since finishing 2¾L third (33/1) to Bocasien Desbois at Market Rasen in March (2m5f+).

Betting

Forecast

Cooper's Friend (9/4), Boy's On Tour (3/1), Las Tunas (4/1), Harleys Max (4/1), Court Painter (13/2), Titian Boy (7/1), Fit For Fifty (8/1), Billy Flight (16/1), Teviot Prince (16/1)

Verdict

A good opportunity for the lightly raced Lucinda Russell trained BOY'S ON TOUR to record a first success under rules. A winner of a good ground point-to-point at Fairyhouse in April 2017, he shouldn't be at all bothered about today's forecast ground conditions despite his best effort under rules so far coming on soft ground at Musselburgh in January. He faces a largely exposed bunch of rivals which include the theoretically well-treated but under-performing duo Las Tunas and Cooper's Friend.
