2.00 Simply Lucky has his first run for the Somersby yard having won two hurdles for the Dan Skelton stable in May and June this year.He is a consistent performer and should handle the extra distance of todays race.I expect him to go close with the main danger from two last out winners,bottom weight Midnight Queen and Handy Hollow..
2.30 Lady Samback is still a maiden after nine attempts under rules. She needs to show considerable improvement to get involved in a race dominated by the Gordon Elliott top weight Make My Heart Fly. She is on a hat-trick mission after winning by 16 lengths at Perth last month and will probably win again.
3.30 Mixboy, a five time rules winner, scored for me at Musselburgh in January. He should be fit and well after a recent run on the flat at Ripon. Today he reverts to hurdles and races off a excellent handicap mark . I expect a good performance with the main threats Apterix and High Expectations.
4.00 Da Baba Elephant is seeking a hat-trick after wins at Wexford and Market Rasen. He was very impressive last day out and despite an eight pound penalty he has a winning chance. Ever So Much, won at the course in April and had two victories at Hexham in June looks the main danger. The Ronan McNally stable is in good form and provided me with a winner The Jam Man yesterday.
