Warwick Placepot: Tuesday August 21

Warwick is the venue for Tuesday's Placepot.

Timeform's Matt Gardner has been tasked with lining the coffers for York's Ebor meeting, and has selected Warwick as the Placepot target...

Fletcher Christian is blessed with plenty of speed and will appreciate the drop to the minimum trip having gone off too hard at Windsor last time...

17:00 - This is a trappy event with which to open, and it's probably best to seek safety in numbers by sticking in three. First on the list would be Aubrietta, who has returned to form in re-fitted blinkers on her last two starts and will have no problems with the easy six furlongs on offer. George Fenton caught the eye on return from a five-month break at Nottingham a week ago and ought to be sharper for that, whilst Auntie Mabel found a small amount of improvement equipped with a visor for the first time at Kempton a fortnight ago and is of interest with the Andrew Balding yard in fine form.

17:30 - Blue Jack, who at his best finished third in the Group 3 Palace House Stakes and won a listed event at Chester, takes a big drop in class here and really should at least make the first three. He was running well earlier in the year, finishing second at Newbury, and although he hasn't achieved much of late he is likely to prove difficult to beat.

18:00 - In similar fashion to the previous leg, Al Janadeirya is a short-priced favourite that realistically cannot be taken on. The four-year-old has been expensive to follow, not managing to get her head in front in six attempts, but she sets the standard here and is unlikely to be found many better openings.

18:30 - Tanghan again is a short price, but this time we can take him on as the suspicion is that he will need longer trips in time and it is conceivable that he could fail to make the first two. The one to side with is Fletcher Christian, who is blessed with plenty of speed and will appreciate the drop to the minimum trip having gone off too hard at Windsor last time.

19:00 - Danz Choice is likely to be popular here, but he'll be suited by a return to six furlongs, so the pair that make the cut are Dusty Storm and Mullit. The former made a good start to life in nurseries when winning at Ripon earlier this month and remains capable of better still, whilst Mullit, who is bred for speed, put up his best effort at Thirsk last time and is interesting on his nursery debut.

19:30 - Having been on something of a Weight Watchers 'pot' up to this point, there's no sense in changing our approach now and will bank on Cactus Valley to see us safely home. The Roger Charlton-trained three-year-old is gradually improving, putting everything together to get off the mark at Sandown last time, with a 5 lb rise for that win seeming fair enough. He is the type to continue progressing, and can land the spoils here.
