Timeform on Rubytwo

Rubytwo - 12:20 Carlisle

Rubytwo ran her best race yet when finishing runner-up at Wetherby last time and the form of that contest has since been given a boost. The first and third have won subsequently, so Rubytwo looks well treated able to race off the same mark. Her trainer Nicky Richards is in fine form and she handles testing conditions, so she looks to hold outstanding claims.

Perfect Man - 14:20 Carlisle

Perfect Man won on his reappearance at Chepstow, looking value for more than the winning margin of a length and a quarter. He is up 6 lb which is fair, but it's worth noting that he failed to build on a successful reappearance last season, and he hasn't always looked straightforward. He could be worth taking on. One Night In Milan holds the most persuasive claims as he looks to be a horse on the up and could have more to offer over this sort of trip.

Smart Stat
Universal Folly - 15:25 Carlisle

£18.49 - Nicky Richards' profit to a £1 level stake with bumper debutants

Universal Folly has not run before but that does not mean we know nothing about his likely prospects on debut. The trainer's record with debutants usually provides some clues, and Nicky Richards boasts a healthy level-stakes profit with his newcomers. Universal Folly also has a pedigree which suggests he might possess some ability - his half-brother showed fairly useful form over hurdles - and he is highly respected on debut.
