3 pts win ELBERETH 12/1 ( at least 5 firms - 14/1 on Betfair Ex)

This mare is 9 lb higher in the ratings than her last appearance in a handicap - which was when she ran a cracker to finish runner up in the John Smith's Cup last July. She has performed with great credit since in the face of stiff tasks. Her last two runs have seen her finish runner up in the Dahlia and fourth in the Coronation Cup. Admittedly, Group race form can sometimes be overrated and placed horses flattered but she is a likeable reliable sort who should give a really good account of herself.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win EDWARD LEWIS 14/1 ( at least 12 firms)

Been in cracking form since joining his new yard from John Gosden.  Ran a terrific race in the Dash at Epsom last time despite not getting the rub of the green and has built up a good rapport with the 3 lb claimer on board. One very much for the short list here.
