: This will be down the 1000m straight on the turf and it is actually quite open, particularly if you take the bias towards the grandstand side into consideration.
At the moment Little Bridge
is slightly favourite at 4.8, and he has been working well. Eagle Regiment is on 5.3, Sacred Kingdom, to be ridden tomorrow by Zac Purton, on 6.3 and Lucky Nine 8.0. We are going each way on At Moment in Time who has drawn the right spot and will have Maxime Guyon riding. He may not have the speed to lead but should be able to be in a great position for coming home.
Race 10 on the card is the Southwell Handicap Cl. 2 over 1600m and Semos seems very well placed for this and is on 3.9. Helene Spirit has been working well and is on 4.3, Dragon Fighter 6.8. We rather like Voile Rouge and he's got a 10lb claiming apprentice riding and is value at 15. Watch out for a debutant Beauty Lead, formerly known as Glaswegian and trained in France by Pascal Bary and has been racing in top races there, with a second in the G2 Prix Eugene-Adam in his CV. Richard Gibson trains and Gerald Mosse rides so they will be able to talk to the horse in French!
