Nick Shiambouros returns with a strong fancy in a Listed race at Pontefract and a place selection from Brighton...


"She has been knocking at the door in decent company, and her conditioner appears to have found a good opportunity for her to earn some valuable Black Type"

Back Black Cherry in the 15:10 at Pontefract

15:10 Pontefract- Black Cherry

Black Cherry should be good enough to take this Listed event.

This daughter of Mount Nelson finished a respectable seventh to Usherette in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge at Royal Ascot last month. She ran on bravely two furlongs from home, but lacked the pace to be competitive.

She has been knocking at the door in decent company, and her conditioner appears to have found a good opportunity for her to earn some valuable Black Type. At present she is trading at a generous 5.49/2 on the exchange.

Merry Me is a mare with a similar profile to the selection. She was not beaten all that far in a Group 3 at Epsom last month, and a reproduction of that effort would see her go close.


18:10 Brighton - Eolian

Eolian is well worth an interest in the place market.

This colt caught the eye on debut when finishing third to Jackhammer at Salisbury last month. He put in some stellar work in the closing stages, and finished the race with good energy. I think he is entitled to progress further, and I will b e surprised if he does not run in to a place at the very least.

He should be backed at around 2.56/4 in the place market.

Majoris is the short priced favourite in the win market at 2.3211/8. This colt by the mighty Frankel finished sixth to Dream Of Dreams at Haydock on debut. He ran on really well in the final furlong, and will no doubt improve significantly for the run.

He must be feared but his price is a little thin.
