3 pts win HAVANA GREY 8/1 ( at least 7 firms)
Norfolk Stakes

Had the benefit of the far rail when making all in the National Stakes last month but it is hard to compromise the performance as he had the race in the bag quite a bit out and was probably just dossing close home. It looked a strong renewal of that event  with the runner up ( who re-opposes here)looking a useful sort in his own right. All three races have been on fast ground and she should give another good account of himself tomorrow.

Lost - 3 pts

2 pts win RUSUMAAT 25/1 + ( (Betfair and Betdaq Exs
1 pt win SENATOR  36/1 + (Betfair and Betdaq Exs

Rusumaat is 8 lb higher in the ratings for a a clear cut success in a traditionally highly competitive handicap at Haydock last month. He actually lined up in the Coventry here last year and though was out of his depth there he looks to be quickly on the upgrade now and could prove worth taking aboard.

Senator was gelded over the winter and ran a fair race on his reappearance at York on soft ground. The combination of an extra furlong on faster ground could be right up his street and he is worth a second look.

3 pts win HOMESMAN 14/1 (Hills, Bet 365, and Betfair Ex)
King George H'cap

Anyone watching him win last time out in blinkers ( after previously trying a visor) can see that he is clearly not starightforward but almost certainly a good deal better than the form suggests. He won with a bit in the tank and the two following him home are not mugs. He looks ideal material for a big field,fast pace scenario and should figure in a big way.
