RACE PREVIEW & TIPS (WEDNESDAY)

20:10 Ripon Connections of Pipers Note rather worryingly pointed out their track specialist was unsuited by the good to soft going conditions when he flopped here last month. With light rain expected to arrive in North Yorkshire today one could only hope that the rain is indeed only light. Five times a winner over this course and distance and a gritty victor of this race last term, there is certainly lots to like about the Ruth Carr trained eight year old today and he is handed the vote. Sandra’s Secret produced a career best performance at Ripon when making all under today’s rider a fortnight ago. She looks sure to give it a good shot from the front and is respected along with the likes of Captain Colby and fellow front runner Dougan. PIPERS NOTE (WIN) – NAP
