Tony McFadden attempts to land the Ffos Las Placepot on Sunday...
Kyleakin Lass has been holding her form well of late, and with consistency being such a valuable trait for Placepot purposes we will bank on her to see us through to the final leg...
14:30- Jillnextdoor has achieved a fair level of form for a maiden and produced a respectable effort in listed company at Goodwood last time. This represents a marked drop in grade for Mick Channon's filly and she sets the standard. However, she does drop back in trip to the minimum distance and a couple of non-runners mean that only selecting the winner will be good enough to progress to the second leg, so it may be worth taking no chances and including all four remaining runners.
15:00- Not many in this race appear to be going the right way, but Sarahmanda may prove to be the exception, having progressed with each run so far. She makes her nursery debut on what could prove to be a fair mark, and the fact her yard has been going fairly well of late is an undoubted positive. She is joined in the perm by Jamnean, who seemed to run her best race yet at Bath last time and might be capable of sneaking into the frame if repeating that form.
15:30- Having made the frame on all three starts to date, Clean Blow looks interesting on her nursery debut. She doesn't look badly treated based on her latest effort at Warwick, where she finished second having displayed plenty of speed, and it is worth including her in the 'pot'. We will also throw Secret Sign into the mix. Brian Meehan's gelding improved to win at Chepstow on Thursday and, if suitably recovered from those exertions, should make another bold bid.
16:00- Selfara has been on an upward curve of late, winning on her latest two appearances. She had to overcome unfavourable circumstances to score last time, having found herself trapped wide, and she looks capable of landing the hat-trick here. Both wins have come over the minimum distance but Roger Charlton's filly is progressing nicely and should be able to handle today's step up to six furlongs.
16:30- Kyleakin Lass has been holding her form well of late, and with consistency being such a valuable trait for Placepot purposes we will bank on her to see us through to the final leg. She may not be hiding much from the assessor, but she is a most reliable proposition and it would rate as somewhat of a surprise were she not involved at the business end.
17:00- We will have to find the winner of the last leg in order to secure the spoils, and it might be worth banking on Finesse, such was the impression that she created last time. She displayed plenty of speed on that occasion, travelling with noticeable enthusiasm at the head of affairs, and she may yet be capable of better considering that was only her third start and her first for four months. The drop back in trip should not pose a problem for Ralph Beckett's filly, who can hopefully land the 'pot' for us in style.
