Istimraar is having a fourth run in a short space of time and is still carrying a penalty despite beaten at Sedgefield on Tuesday when long odds-on.. He is likely to be a short-priced favourite so may not offer much in the way of value. Compatriot is having a first run since a beaten favourite at Sedgefield in October. Nachi Falls undoubtedly has the ability to win a race like this off his current mark but is proving hard to place. THE HERDS GARDEN is only a pound higher than when winning at Catterick in January when Ballyfarsoon was well adrift. He’s been placed in all three starts since and has Abbie McCain’s claim in his favour again.
