In depth


The Snatcher has an obvious chance in this company and is taken to supplement his Ripon success, at the main expense of Zennerman and Tin And Lint. The last mentioned has more to do than when winning a Leicester claimer last time, while Young Flavio had to drop into selling company to win on his most recent start and is difficult to recommend in this grade. Mouchoir showed ability on his debut at Bath and is entitled to improve; he makes more appeal than newcomer Scarlet Flyer, who may need more time. Of more interest is Mark Brisbourne's Haydock maiden winner Zennerman, although he was well held behind Asset when stepped up to today's trip of six furlongs at Yarmouth last time and it is difficult to get away from The Snatcher. Like most of Richard Hannon's youngsters he has shown progressive form this term and a reproduction of his recent form should suffice in this company.
