COUNT CEPRANO is taken to land his hat-trick at the expense of George Adamson and Nayessence. The selection has scored back to back wins at Newbury and Yarmouth and as the last of those was an apprentice race he has the opportunity to run again off the same mark. If he can reproduce his recent form he should have little trouble following up. George Adamson won back to back races at Newcastle earlier in the summer and has since run well in defeat off a thirteen pound higher mark. It could be the case however that the handicapper has him where he wants him for the time being and for that reason is worth treating with some caution. Nayessence started off the season in good spirits winning twice on the all weather at Wolverhampton but his form since then has spiralled down hill and although he was not beaten out of site at Beverley last time out improvement will be required if he is to finish in the first three. Count Ceprano has plenty in his favour and can take advantage to score again.
