Step up in trip should benefit Enemy Coast Ahead

16:30 - Enemy Coast Ahead

Enemy Coast Ahead has done nothing wrong for me so far, winning twice at Southwell this season. He has to carry a double penalty which will make life harder but he's in great form and is fitted with a tongue-tie again. I think the extra four furlongs will suit him and hopefully bring out some more improvement, and he looks the one to beat here despite having to give plenty of weight away.

What Will Be has each-way chance in competitive handicap

20:00 - What Will Be

What Will Be had a couple of runs on the flat in June, winning at Chelmsford, and he now goes back over hurdles for the first time since November. The tongue-tie seemed to help him on his two runs this season on the flat and he wears it for the first time over obstacles. He's a straightforward and versatile horse; however, he's probably high enough in the weights. He'd have an each-way chance in what looks a competitive race.

Olly Murphy,
