Timeform on Ballyblack Rebel
We kick off in a basement grade with MIDSHIPMAN (Trap 1, 13:21 Nottingham) fancied to be coming home strongly on the rails to add to his tally. Jill Llewellin's charge boasts a good strike rate for one operating in the basement grades and, in a race distinctly lacking depth, he can benefit from the likely early-paced battle up the middle and assume control off the last bend.
FARLOE LEXI (Trap 4, 15:11 Hove) holds no secrets from the grader but the daughter of Droopys Buick has dropped multiple hints her turn is imminent of late and looks the one to side with this afternoon. Runner-up on three of her last four starts, her latest effort in this basement grade of A11 was deserving of being marked up, meeting with early crowding but finishing off to good effect to be beaten three quarters of a length. Holding obvious claims on expected final time, she should soon be up with the pace and can deservedly get her head back in front.
We go up in class for our final selection and, having showed he's returned from a spell on the sidelines in good order, BALLYBLACK REBEL (Trap 1, 16:28 Hove) is fancied to come home best of all and regain the winning thread. A steadily progressive April 20' whelp, the pick of his form reads well in the context of today's event and he can take up a position in mid-division before striking off the third bend.
