RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (MONDAY)
One Big Surprise got up in the dying strides to win here last time and looks sure to go close over slightly further today, only up four pounds for that win she is entitled to go close and is respected as having a favourites chance. Swiss Cross has been a grand campaigner and he has chances if on song and though Murdanova flopped last time he had won twice prior to that. In Ken’s Memory wants monitoring in the market but the vote goes to Black Caesar who won over today’s course and distance on his return last season.
Black Caesar (WIN)
Melabi was beginning to look well handicapped and he duly took advantage of his falling mark when scoring at Thirsk last time, from a yard amongst the winners he looks sure to go close despite being upped slightly in class. Light Of Air ran well last time and has chances, generally consistent the concern would be that he almost always finds at least one too good and he has flopped at this trip numerous times before. Spirit Of The Vale has been in good heart and is respected but a chance will be taken on Melabi going in again.
Melabi (WIN) – NAP
