15:15 Fontwell

Gin Coco is the highest rated in the race. He ran well on his sole start in Britain, at Sedgefield, when placing second behind Lord Torranaga. He’s now in training with Harry Fry and he’s operating at a decent strike rate. However, he’s coming off a near two year break and there’s quite a few questions. He’s best watched today as he may well need to blow off the cobwebs.

Jaramillo is a likeable sort and is heading in the right direction. He receives the 4 year-old allowance, which puts him on a nice weight. He’s won on the flat before and was unlucky when falling against Saint Segal on his debut at Warwick. He ran well at Newbury but the strength of that race was not overwhelming.

Gabriel’s Getaway is Anthony Honeyball’s second string today but he arguably has more promise, at much larger odds. Anthony Honeyball has a nice record with hurdlers at Fontwell so a chance can be taken on him today. He improved on his last run and should enjoy stepping up to just over two miles. He could prove some nice value on his hurdling debut.


16:10 Lingfield

Golden Warrior improved on his second start for Marco Botti, when prevailing by half a length at Kempton. He’s won three times over six furlongs and having run well at Wolverhampton, he shouldn’t have a problem with the course at Lingfield. He’s in with a shout but he would have to post another career best today.

Kaboo has won his last three for Karl Burke and is interesting on his handicap debut. He took the step up to six furlongs in his stride and has won on the All-Weather before. He’s a big danger given his lenient mark and he’s a justified favourite.

Lucky Man has placed over course and distance and despite being raised for his career best victory, last time out, he races off a nice weight. Hayley Turner has never placed outside of the top three on him and she’s in flying form lately. He could give the favourite a hard race.
