Luxury Breaks At Western House Hotel Handicap
Class 6 | 1m | Good to Soft (Soft in Places) | 12 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:32 | Winning time: 1m 45.47s
Career best when winning 11-runner handicap (12/1) at Musselburgh (7.2f, good) 5 days ago, readily. Carries penalty. Not discounted.
Well-backed 11/4, career best when winning 10-runner handicap at Newcastle (10.2f) 9 days ago. Obvious claims under a penalty.
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.
Last of 10 in handicap at Pontefract (8f, good, 22/1) 48 days ago. Hard to make a case for.
Winner at Hamilton in July. 7/2, below form 5¾ lengths sixth of 14 to Ayr Poet in handicap at Hamilton (9.2f, good to soft) 16 days ago. Others preferred.
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.
Below form tenth of 16 in handicap (11/1) at Beverley (9.9f, good) 30 days ago. Others more persuasive.
12/1, respectable fifth of 12 in handicap at Musselburgh (8f, good) 11 days ago, hampered. Still one to bear in mind.
Eighth of 9 in handicap at Haydock (7f, good to firm, 40/1) 45 days ago. Hard to fancy.
14/1, respectable 4¾ lengths seventh of 13 to Rosemay in handicap at Musselburgh (8f, good) 5 days ago. Cheekpieces on 1st time. Others have achieved more.
Unreliable type. Course winner. Sixth of 11 in handicap (8/1) at Musselburgh (7.2f, good) 5 days ago.
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)
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.
- GEORGE RIDSDALE
- AYR POET
- ROSEMAY (FR)
