Nick Shiambouros returns with a win selection from Beverley and a short priced lay at Sandown...
"She missed the break, but ran on really well in the closing stages"
15:10 Beverley - Popsies Joy
The longer trip should suit Popsies Joy in this interesting maiden.
This Alfred Nobel filly put in a much improved effort last time out when finishing second to Mecca's Missus at Thirsk in July. She missed the break, but ran on really well in the closing stages and was gaining on the winner close home.
I think she is ready to graduate and represents decent value at 3.3512/5 on the exchange.
Mark Johnston runs newcomer Richie McCaw who is currently second choice in the market at 3.7511/4. He is a half- brother to Seaport who was placed in a Group 3 at Deauville last month. His future probably lies over further but it would be foolish to discount him.
Epeius caught the eye on debut at Newcastle and could run well at a price.
15:20 Sandown - Elm Park
There is no doubt that Elm Park is the class of the field but I am going to oppose him in this intriguing Listed event.
This high class colt won the Racing Post Trophy last year, but things have not really worked out for him this season. After finishing a fair third to Golden Horn in the Dante he was sent to Epsom for the Derby and was soundly beaten.
On both occasions this term he has refused to settle, which leads me to believe he has become a little quirky. In addition I am not sure if the mile trip will be long enough for him at this stage of the season.
He is currently trading at 1.794/5 on the exchange and I have layed him at this price.
Gabrial has been on the go since winning the Lincoln but appears to be thriving with racing. He has cracked heads with the likes of Solow and Kodi Bear this summer and is a legitimate threat to the favourite.
The well related Decorated Knight is improving with racing and could be a danger to all. He bolted up in a handicap over this course in July and could be anything.
