It's Summer Cup day at Uttoxeter today and that is where we head for today's Placepot attempt...
"He has somewhat lost his way since, but he is in top hands and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back here today and he has strong place claims if doing so."
14:00 - Beat The Tide showed fair form on the Flat for Micheal Dods and has joined a very capable jumps operation, he looks like one of the more likely types here on debut, with Irish point winner Air Glider also one for the places.
14:30 - Silent Movie fits the profile of so many of John Ferguson's Flat recruits and is expected to go well here despite a long absence. Captain Swift is also a solid Placepot option under a penalty for his Sedgefield maiden success on his first start in this sphere.
15:00 - Laser Blazer bolted up off a 5lb lower mark than this in Warwick last season and ran well in a more competitive race at Ascot next time out. He has somewhat lost his way since, but he is in top hands and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back here today and he has strong place claims if doing so. It is still early days for David Pipe with Skylander, and he also catches the eye in first-time cheekpieces.
15:35 - Silver Man is up another 14lbs for his latest Aintree win, but that looked strong form and he may well still be a step ahead of the handicapper in a race where there are plenty of exposed types on show.
16:10 - Significant Move has not had long in the capable hands of Dr Richard Newland and he should be able to put his disappointing first start for the yard behind him soon enough. Mount Vesuvius has caught the eye on a couple of recent starts when not getting the clearest of runs and could also run into a place.
16:45 - Hard to see Ulis De Vassy out of the places in the final leg on his first start for the Dan Skelton yard, who have an excellent record with similar recruits and continue in fine form.
