1.5 pts win VADO FORTE 28/1 ( at least four firms inc Coral and Victor)
1.5 pts win CAIUS MARCIUS 50/1 (at least nine firms)
Greatwood Hurdle

Vado Forte progressed markedly in the spring,ending the season when taking a valuable Plumpton handicap. He will have come on for his seasonal debut, is off only a three pound higher rating than Plumpton, hails from an up and coming yard, and is worth a second look here.

On the face of it Caius Marcius looks in the grip of the handicapper on the weights and measures form of his respectable Ascot run. That may be the case but he was not given the best of rides and is too big to ignore here to small stakes.

Lost - 3pts

3 pts win RIBBLE VALLEY 5/1 (almost all firms)
High Sheriff of Gloucestershire and Racing Remembers Bumper

This one created a big impression when winning at Ayr two weekends back, is very useful at the least and possibly could be something a little special. Hard to resist at the price.
