1.0 KJ Services Supports Brain Tumour Research Handicap (Class 6) (4yo+ 0-55) 1m
A mediocre contest in terms of ability but there are three worth having a second look at.
Bbob Alula is a 7f course winner on good to firm and has won twice over 1m. His latest success at Brighton in April came when 4lb lower and he went close back there from this mark last time out. A repeat effort would give him claims.
Mountain Ash has a caree record of 1-14, the win coming on soft (7.5f) 13-months ago. He went close here (7f, good to soft) when 1lb higher, last August. Although well beaten on his reappearance at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) last month, he was back in better form at Brighton last time. He looks interesting with conditions to suit.
Another who could go well is Global Style, who broke his duck at the 39th attempt last month at Chelmsford (1m, AW), when 2lb lower. He produced a similar effort from this mark latest. He isn’t ground dependent on turf and should be competitive.
Bbob Alula has been consistenct of late and again has claims. Global Style, who has hit better form of late and could have a say in the outcome but preference is for MOUNTAIN ASH. Rod Millman’s gelding who took a step back in the right direction last time, is on a competitive mark and has conditions to suit. He’s my idea of the winner.
