Nick Shiambouros made a small profit yesterday when Kings Fete won at Newbury. Nick returns with two strong fancies from the meeting at Pontefract...

"I think this race will suit this consistent individual down to the ground, and should be backed at around 4.03/1 on the exchange."

14:15 Pontefract- Computable

Computable is worth another chance in this maiden.

This colt was a little disappointing when finishing sixth to Angel Meadow at York in June. He was collared inside the final furlong,and folded quickly to finish out of the money. He had previously finished a promising second to Shamsaya at Ripon, which reads well in the context of this race.

He should be backed at around 3.02/1 on the exchange.

Mick Channon sends out Lightoller. This colt finished second in a handicap at Brighton earlier this month. He is heading in the right direction, but think the selection will have his measure.


15:45 Pontefract - Ridge Ranger

Ridge Ranger is my idea of the winner of this interesting Listed contest.

This mare finished seventh to Dancing Star in the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood last month. She was headed inside the final furlong, but was not beaten all that far in the end. She had previously beaten Besharah in a Group 3 event at York in great style. She made all and kept on strongly to win fair and square.

I think this race will suit this consistent individual down to the ground, and should be backed at around 4.03/1 on the exchange.

Priceless could be the main danger. This lightly raced filly was caught right on the line when finishing second to Mont Kiara at HQ last month. She is improving with racing and the stable is going well at present.
