Ben Linfoot had a 7/1 winner on Friday and David Ord now has a best bet for every Saturday card.
He was too keen when disappointing at Chester last time but WAY TO WIN is worth another chance in the Virgin Bet Nursery.
Richard Hannon’s charge had earlier looked to be a colt going places when winning at Lingfield in July and the handicapper dropped him three pounds for his run at the Roodee which looks generous. Ryan Moore takes over in the saddle and if proving more tractable, his partner is handicapped to go well.
Touched off in the Group One Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at ParisLongchamp last time, NOBLE TRUTH can prove a cut above his rivals in the Virgin Bet Horris Hill Stakes.
The son of Kingman had previously won the Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster, showing a good attitude, and is proven in soft ground. He faces a host of unexposed maiden runners in the main and they all have to show a fair chunk of improvement to get up to his level.
Gordon Elliott has been among the winners of late and the thriving TULLYBEG looks the answer to the first Pertemps qualifier of the season.
He arrives here race-fit and on a hat-trick after victories at Navan and Gowran. The feature of those two wins are how much he’s found off the bridle and the sterner stamina test he faces here should bring about more improvement. It needs to from a ten pounds higher mark but he has a fitness advantage over most of these and there could be more to come.
He improved when winning at Hexham last time and AWAY AT DAWN is fancied to land the Landale Family Handicap Chase for Brian Hughes and Donald McCain.
The son of Getaway impressed with how he travelled and jumped in beating Burrows Diamond by seven lengths and a seven pounds rise looks fair. The hat-trick seeking Northern Bound is an obvious danger but there’s more to come from the selection who looked one to follow last time.
She’s a four time winner at the track and ENGRAVE is fancied to go close in the Support The Injured Jockeys Fund Handicap. Julia Feilden’s charge has slipped five pounds below her last winning mark and will be able to track a strong pace which will suit. If anywhere near her she'll be in the shake-up.
