Hardly the easiest conundrum to solve when you’re presented with a race card littered with seventeen runners but it seems like the Charlie Hills trained Rock Of Estonia may well be worthy of a bet. Very uninspiring when finishing stone last at Windsor back in June connections took the decision to geld the horse. With some this is a drastically form altering trick with results improving immediately, with others it may take its time. In this instance I’m hoping it’s the former of the two outcomes and he can bounce back to winning ways this afternoon. The aforementioned trainer has a brilliant record here at Nottingham with 36 wins and places to his name from just 77 runners here in the past five years.
Others such as Bahamian Sunrise as well as course and distance winners Bashiba and Samovar are rivals with obvious credentials and if our selection were to falter expect this trio to pounce.
