6/4

C&D winner. 2 wins from 5 runs this year. 11/10, didn't need to be at best when winning 14-runner handicap at Hamilton (9.2f, good to soft) 16 days ago, pushed out. Enters calculations.

11/1, good 1¾ lengths second of 11 to Ayr Poet in handicap at this C&D (good to soft) 24 days ago. Should remain competitive.

14/1

C&D winner. Bit below form 6¾ lengths seventh of 14 to Ayr Poet in handicap (11/2) at Hamilton (9.2f, good to soft) 16 days ago. Latest effort best excused, so may well get back on track.

Forecast

Ayr Poet (6/4), George Ridsdale (11/4), Broctune Red (9/2), Rosemay (10/1), Retirement Beckons (14/1), Phantasmal (14/1), Flying Moon (16/1), Queen Mia (20/1), Fast Track Flyer (28/1), Black Star Dancing (40/1), Roaring Forties (40/1), Jorgie (40/1), Herbert Pocket (50/1), Jazz Hands (50/1)

Verdict

Having justified strong support in ready fashion at Newcastle 9 days ago, GEORGE RIDSDALE is a fairly straightforward selection to follow up under a penalty. Ayr Poet and Rosemay, also recent scorers, could be the ones to trouble him most.

  1. GEORGE RIDSDALE
  2. AYR POET
  3. ROSEMAY (FR)
