3 pts win CRACK ON CRACK ON 15/2 ( at least three firms inc PPower & Betfair Sportsbook)
Porsche H'cap

This one remains very much a potential Group class animal. He took a valuable Haydock Park handicap with a bit to spare then never got the rub of the green when starting favourite for the Brittania, missing the break, being hampered and fighting a losing battle from then on. That run can be overlooked and he should give an excellent account of himself today.

Won + 22.5 pts

2 pts win SHADY McCOY  12/1 (almost all firms)
1 pt win ARBALET  35/1 ( Betfair Exchange)

Shady McCoy arrives here in much better heart than he was before finishing a creditable eighth in the race last year when a 50/1 shot. He was narrowly beaten in the Bunbury Cup a couple of weeks back, and racing off the same rating today he must be on any short list.

Arbalet has his first venture in handicap company. He ran way above what was expected when fifth in the Jersey last time and today will tell whether or not he's harshly treated here off a 104 rating. Worth a speculative bet at the odds available and could surprise providing there are no hiccups in the stalls

Lost - 3 pts
