2 pts win VIBRANT CHORDS 7/1 ( at least nine firms)
1 pt win JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE 31/1 (Betfair Ex)
Portland H'cap

The  overall progressive Vibrant Chords is just the type of animal that today's Henry Candy excels with. The animal who beat him here last time was bang on his game at the time and followed up in a valuable event at the York August meeting. He's been raised 2 lb in the ratings for that but he appeals as a horse with plenty more left to come and one who will reward blind following over the next 12 months.

Justanotherbottle catches the eye at big odds as he has some smart pieces of form in the book, notable an excellent third in the valuable 3 year old handicap on the Saturday charity day at York, a race traditionally strongly contested. He ran well at the same venue last time, has winning course form here and should run really well.

Lost - 3 pts
