- White Rose History Group Apprentice Selling Handicap (Class 5)
- 1m 1f 170y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
0-6 on turf. Ran well over 1m2f at Ayr last season when 7lb higher. Steps back up to this trip after racing over 7f more recently and is interesting.
Went close here over 5f on debut last year. A repeat of a couple of runs at Catterick over 7f last year would give him strong claims here. Back in better form when upped to this trip last time. New headgear here and he has claims.
Has mainly been racing over jumps of late and is now 0-20 under rules. Little encouragement in this code at Catterick last time. More needed.
Newcastle handicap winner (1m2f, AW) in February from this mark. Ran well again over 1m1f at Musselburgh last month. Drops into a seller for the first time with each-way claims.
6L winner of a C&D seller last season. Has also run well here in first-time cheek pieces. Now tried in blinkers and he could leave some moderate recent form behind.
Looks capable of winning races judged on two of her five runs. Best form has so far been over 1m on AW, but she goes well fresh and looks capable of making a big impact over this trip on her turf/seller debut.
Beaten 31L when last seen at Wetherby in April. Now wears a hood and despite stable having a recent winner, he has shown nothing for punters to latch on to yet.
Has changed hands since being well held in three successive handicaps at Newcastle earlier in the year. Needs to get right back to his best form of 2016 to get involved now in this grade.
