13/2

Has shown plenty in 4 starts while suggesting he hasn't peaked yet. This return to 6f will suit and he has a good chance if overcoming the widest draw.

Forecast

Sir Maxi (1/2), Roydmoor (13/2), Mr Trevor (15/2), Emperor Supreme (16/1), Wanted (16/1), Space Kid (20/1), Mezna (20/1), Elland Road Boy (28/1), Beau Tinker (33/1), Libby Ami (50/1), Tees Spirit (50/1), Furniture Factors (150/1)

Verdict

Not a deep novice in the slightest and a good opportunity for SIR MAXI to make it second time lucky. He cost a fair bit earlier this year and shaped well on his recent debut at Windsor. He's sure to improve and his yard have an excellent record at Pontefract. Roydmoor is a player if overcoming the highest draw, while Emperor Supreme, also starting from out wide, is a newcomer to note.

  1. SIR MAXI
  2. ROYDMOOR
  3. EMPEROR SUPREME (IRE)
