There is an interesting card at Pontefract on Sunday and that looks the best option for the Placepot attempt.

"He is drawn well and will race prominently, both advantageous on this track..."

14:20 - Fast Enough is improving rapidly but the drop in trip does not necessarily seem the most obvious of moves, so it could be worth taking him on with Mayfair Lady, who went close in a maiden at Haydock last month and will have more to offer here.

14:50 - Ingleby Hollow is drawn best of the three-year-olds here and looks a good option making his open handicap debut on the back of a course win in a competitive three-year-old event last time. Spirit of The Sea is also worth including after looking unlucky not to win at Catterick last time when hampered.

15:25 - Cornborough is lightly raced compared to most of these and has been hinting as if a step up to this trip may suit. He is drawn well and will race prominently, both advantageous on this track, and with Silvestre De Sousa taking the ride for the first time he should go very well for his in-form yard.

16:00 - Let's Go looked a potential Group horse when making a mockery of his BHA mark of 90 last time at Wolverhampton and with much more improvement to come on just his third start, he is taken as a banker in this useful listed contest.

16:35 - Hard to see past the only three-year-old in the field Beardwood, who was last seen winning a maiden over C&D back in April. Although it is slightly concerning that he has not been seen since, the form from that race looks very strong now, with the second Dawn's Early Light an impressive winner off a BHA mark of 84 recently.

17:10 - Charlie Appleby's debutants have been improving for their first outing more often than not this season, so it could be worth taking on the well-bred Ad Dabaran with Ejbaar, who had shown promise in maidens prior to disappointing on handicap debut and is worth another chance back in this company in what is a tricky race to assess.
