Through The Card: Ffos Las, Tuesday July 19
Timeform take you through the Flat card at Ffos Las on Tuesday.
"A reasonably competitive finale, but Summersault looks the one to back given he wasn't beaten far in an arguably stronger handicap than this at Newbury recently..."
14:00 - Not only does Maths Prize have the best form on offer in this maiden, having finished second of 12 to Larchmont Lad at Sandown on his debut, be he also looks open to plenty of improvement, so he should be hard to beat. Naval Warfareo was fourth in that same maiden, two and a quarter lengths behind Maths Prize, and also looks capable of better, so he could be the selection's biggest danger ahead of Prerogative, who has already had four goes to get off the mark but did at least produce his best performance yet last time.
14:30 - The top three on ratings in this three-year-old maiden, namely Loaded, Irrevocable and Burguillos, all look open to improvement, so they appear the ones to concentrate on. The ratings suggests Burguillos is too short at his current price - 2/1 - and that Loaded should be clear favourite (clear top rated by 5 lb), so after again shaping better than the bare result making handicap his debut after six weeks off 12 days ago, he's taken to get off the mark here.
15:00 - A tricky handicap, but Topology is progressing gradually and the way he finished when third on his handicap bow over six furlongs at Windsor last time suggests he has more to offer back up to seven furlongs. Raising Sand, on his first start for new connections having been sold for 16,000 guineas 12 days ago, and recent Carlisle winner Yorkee Mo Sabee head the dangers, and it makes sense to take the former as well as Topology in the Placepot given only two places are on offer.
15:30 - Flutterbee is a solid handicapper at 0-70 level, running her race more often than not, and she looks sound Placepot banker material as she drops into selling company for the first time, for all two non-runners reducing
16:00 - There should be more to come from the unexposed Blenheim Warrior, who displayed a willing attitude when getting off the mark at Salisbury last month and this stiffer test should be right up his street. He's also been gelded since his last run, while the Richard Hughes yard are firing in the winners at present. Cosette has been in good form of late and is clear next best, while the likes of For Goodness Sake, Ivanhoe and Urban Space are expected to scrap it out for minor honours.
16:30 - The one with the most solid credentials in this five-furlong handicap is Go Amber Go, who has turned over a new leaf this season, following her reappearance victory at Bath with a creditable second at Chepstow. She's been nudged up 2 lb for that but, with just eight starts under her belt, she could easily have more to offer and looks a solid favourite. Jaganory will be a threat if bouncing back to his best.
17:00 - A reasonably competitive finale, but Summersault looks the one to back given he wasn't beaten far in an arguably stronger handicap than this at Newbury recently and again has the assistance of George Baker in the saddle. In a race where several of his rivals have questions to answer for one reason or another, Summersault looks another sound favourite.
