Geremia and stablemate Moliwood are both seeking hat-tricks though the former has been winning on the all-weather and the latter is preferred after scoring over today’s trip at Redcar. Saratoga Gold also bids for a treble as he steps up from 1m4f while Solent Gateway’s recent victory at Chester came over 2m. Spirit Mixer won over today’s distance at Salisbury and is 5lb higher while both Tynwald and Charging Thunder can be given a chance but BANDINELLI won at Newmarket on his first start gelded and this longer trip should suit with his yard continuing to fire-in the winners.
