We are straight into pin-stickers’ territory with a 19-runner handicap for lady amateurs but RACQUET won this last year off a 6lb higher mark from stall 14 and is a bit nearer the stands’ rail this evening. Carol Bartley is one of the more experienced riders taking part and Ruth Carr’s charge may have been aimed at a repeat. Patrick’s second at Newcastle signalled a return to form and he’s very well treated on his best efforts. Redcar third Mansfield should go well under Joanna Mason but B Fifty Two is penalised for his success at Catterick two runs ago so will have plenty of lead in the saddle. Serena Brotherton’s mounts in race of this type are always worth a second look and Jacob's Pillow is no exception with Mr Greenlight and I'll Be Good others to consider.
