Half-sister to the very talented Sheikhzayedroad; made a winning start to her career with ready 1m victories at Newmarket and Chelmsford; off since finishing third to a couple of GB-trained runners in a 1m Saint-Cloud Listed race last September.

Thirsk regular who finished just under 2L fourth (9/4f) in the 2019 Hunt Cup (1m, good) in May; didn't exactly sparkle when upped in trip at Epsom but remains a solid yardstick, and is noticeably dropping back in grade (into a Class 3).

Forged clear to win by 3½L in a Class 2 handicap at Haydock in April 2018; 2lb lower here and this is a far easier option than Newbury's Spring Cup; stays 1m2f well; would be a player on proper rain-softened ground.

Beaten less than 3L (fourth of five) in this race in 2018, and is a two-time Ripon winner; kept busy of late - seeks the hat-trick from a mark which is 3lb higher than when beating Be Kool by ½L in a Musselburgh Class 4 latest.

Lightly-raced, yet progressive 4yo colt; has shown a determined attitude in fending off all challengers when winning on the AW at Newcastle (1m2f) and Kempton (1m3f); tough task off a 5lb higher mark.

7lb lower than when recording the last of his three C&D wins in May 2018; won't mind the ground being good or soft and after finishing third to Mulligatawny at Ayr (penultimate) went mightily close at York (33/1) on Saturday.

4lb lower than when beating Mikmak by a neck (Mulligatawny third) over C&D last July; conditions will be very different today; finished fifth of 14 to a well backed stablemate of Ummainar in Redcar's Cl 2 Zetland Gold Cup latest.

Better known for his AW prowess; fluffed the start on debut for Tom Clover at Goodwood, but made no mistake when a commanding 11L winner of a Class 5 amateurs' race at Newbury (1m2f, soft) last week; well-in under a 4lb penalty.

33/1

Narrow winner of the Class 5 1m handicap (good) on this card in 2018 but has failed to add to that in ten subsequent starts; weakened quickly (12th of 14) at Beverley in May; grave stamina doubts in a deep race.

Betting

Forecast

Ummalnar (7/4), Mutamaded (10/3), Harbour Breeze (5/1), Borodin (11/2), Mulligatawny (12/1), Thomas Cranmer (14/1), Dutch Uncle (22/1), Gulf Of Poets (33/1), Kharbetation (33/1)

Verdict

The feature race of Ripon's Ladies Day promises to make for enthralling viewing with only Kharbetation ruled out of contention. Ummainar is lightly-raced and despite shouldering top-weight of 9st 8lbs is expected to make her presence felt for the ever feared William Haggas. The likes of Harbour Breeze, Mulligatawny and Dutch Uncle are at the very top of their respective games with the last-named well ahead of the handicapper after dotting up at Newbury (Class 5). However, while also fearful of Mutamaded, a chance is taken on the mud loving GULF OF POETS who is re-routed here from last week's abandoned Haydock fixture.
