"The longer trip should bring out the improvement needed to take this event"

Back Rampant Lion in the 14:00 at Beverley

14:00 Beverley - Rampant Lion


Rampant Lion should go close in this interesting contest.

This colt finished fifth to Jedi Master at Wetherby earlier this month. He displayed signs of inexperience in the early stages, but got the hang of things inside the final furlong and finished the race with good energy. The longer trip should bring out the improvement needed to take this event. At present he is trading at 3.45 on the exchange.

The obvious danger is Arabian Jazz. Due to the conditions of the race this filly receives 11lbs from the selection. She finished a closing third to Holdenhurst at Brighton, but the form of that race has not worked out well. She is trading at 2.942/1 on the exchange.


14:15 Brighton - Holdenhurst


I will be pushing the lay button on Holdenhurst.

As mentioned earlier, the form of his victory over Hateya last month has not worked out. He subsequently ran in the Woodcote at Epsom on Oaks day, and finished last behind De Bruyne Horse. After meeting a little interference at the start he failed to land a blow and finished well beaten. He has to defy a penalty in this race, which certainly does not help his cause. I am surprised to see him trading at 1.865/6 on the exchange. This is a very short price to say the least.

My idea of the winner is Cruel Clever Cat. She hinted at ability in two maidens and has scope for further improvement. This is not a particularly strong contest, and could surprise at a decent price. She is currently trading at 7.87/1 on the exchange.
