Verdict

A typically competitive and well-contested Ripon handicap, in which the runners with unexposed profiles make most appeal. Mac Ailey has ran admirably in defeat on both starts since switched to handicaps and should be thereabouts. Flying Raconteur is a fascinating contender after just the four starts. He didn't enjoy the best of passages on seasonal/handicap debut and has plenty more to offer in this sphere. The claims of VENTURA ROYAL make her a confident selection though. The form of her second on seasonal debut was franked over the weekend. Given that was her first run for almost a year, she should strip much fitter now and notch a second career win returned to 1m.
  1. Ventura Royal
  2. Flying Raconteur
  3. Mac Ailey
