STAGE STAR (system – Ballymore Hurdle, 6yos, won last time out, fresh)

Six-year-olds have a great recent record in the Ballymore and backing last-time out winners, who were now returning from a break of more than eight weeks, would have found six winners from 13 bets in the past ten years. Backing them all returned a profit of £20.57. Three of the beaten horses were placed and STAGE STAR looks a good each-way play against odds-on favourite Sir Gerhard.


HASANKEY (system – Laura Morgan, chases, claiming jockey)

Laura Morgan has a great record with her chasers, especially when using a jockey who claims a weight allowance as Lewis Dobb does on HASANKEY in the Grand Annual. She’s 18 from 85 on this angle (21.2% strike-rate) for a huge profit of £102.45 to the usual £1 stake. Hasankey has won his last three starts and though only scoring narrowly from Destined To Shine at Wetherby last time, the form has been franked by the runner-up. He’s been winning on soft/heavy going but his trainer expects him to be suited by better ground. There are plenty that can be fancied in this race – I’ve also backed Thyme White and will save on last year’s winner Sky Pirate – but Hasankey could be over-priced at around 40-1.


TRUE ACCOLADE (system – Charlie Appleby, 3yo gelded newcomers)

Since the beginning of 2017, Charlie Appleby has a 17 from 52 record with his gelded three-year-old newcomers (32.7% strike-rate) for a profit of £25.14 to a £1 level stake at SP. TRUE ACCOLADE looks a likely type on paper and can make a winning debut under William Buick


HIGH BORN EAGLE (system – sire Free Eagle, 1m+, all-weather)

Progeny of the sire Free Eagle have a solid record over 1m or further on the all-weather, landing 37 of their 175 starts (21.1% strike-rate) for a profit of £55.11 to a £1 level stake at SP. Newcomer HIGH BORN EAGLE He represents in-form Jedd O’Keeffe (three winners from eight runners in the past fortnight) and is worth chaancing at double-figure odds on her debut.


PROCLAIMER (system – sire Free Eagle, 1m+, all-weather)

PROCLAIMER is a qualifier on the same system as High Born Eagle (see 6.45 Newcastle preview) and is bidding to make it six wins from his last seven all-weather starts. He won’t gamely from the front over course and distance last time and can follow up.
