- Tracy Gannon Inspirational Lady Glo & Go Handicap (Pro-Am Lady Riders) (Class 5)
- 1m 3f 39y, Good to Soft (Good in places)
- 16 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Made a winning debut for this yard when victorious over 1m4f at Thirsk (soft) last month. Disappointed next time out at Catterick. Headgear on for the first time today. Possibilities.
Has run well for an inexperienced rider in the past and best effort this term cam at Ayr two starts ago. Below par last time out and need to put that run behind him to get competitive here.
Has been in good form all season including winning races at Haydock and Beverley on easy surfaces. Handicapper may have caught up with him based on latest effort but entitled to run his race.
Well into the veteran stage now, but ended 2018 with a flourish, winning three of his last four starts. No show on his reappearance run at York in June. Hard to assess at present but chance on best of his form.
Took advantage of a useful handicap mark and a slowly run race to win well at Pontefract late last month. No reason why he can't go close again now he has regained some confidence.
Hasn't won on the Flat since his 1m4f maiden win on debut. Tailed off over further on June's stable debut but slightly improved last time at Hamiliton. Chance on best of AW at the weights but others preferred.
Has been in great form recently with two wins from his last four starts, including over this C&D last month. Needs a career best to win off this latest mark, however, he has to be respected.
Making his seasonal debut when 13L fourth in a 1m4f handicap at Ripon (soft) last month. Worth a check in the market off a mark much lower than for his most recent success.
Winner of a Redcar amateur riders' event in October, but out of sorts since a fair return to action at Doncaster in March. Plenty to prove.
Struggled slightly last time out on the AW but had previously posted good efforts when winning at this tack and Carlisle (two placed eforts subsequently). Enjoys a soft surface but possibly too high in the weights to get competitive.
Still relatively unexposed on turf; best efort came last time out at Nottingham (1m2f). Step up in trip likely to be no problem and very much one for the shortlist.
Nine-race maiden; has showed flashes of ability in the past but hard to make a case for her on current form.
Fair dual-purpose performer but has yet to show enough form on the level to suggest she is capable of landing this contest.
Better known as a hurdler but running well enough on the Flat in slightly better company to warrant respect at what could be his optimum distance - best effort these season have been over 1m4f. Chance on best of his form.
Winner on the AW at Wolverhampton in May but is a far better performer on a synthetic surface and his latest three turf runs don't inspire confidence.
Has shown little ability on the flat or over hurdles and would be difficult to make a case for unless there was significant stable confidence.
