3 pts win SOME INVITATION 11/1 ( at least nine firms)
Rewards For Racing Handicap Chase

Lightly raced with just four runs over fences, the last coming in May, the fact that this one remains in the Skelton yard gives encouragement that there is more to come. Though overall disappointing up to now, his run at Cheltenham in April makes him one to consider here and there is plenty to find out about him.

Lost - 3 pts


2 pts win RESHOUN 10/1 ( at least seven firms)
1 pt win NOW CHILDREN 11/1 (almost all firms)
November Handicap

Reshoun headed the ante-post market at one stage for this race last year but never made the line up in a race won by his connections. He has been disappointing this season until returning to form with a convincing success at Haydock in easy ground which he clearly needs to produce his optimum. Reverting back in trip won't be an issue and he looks capable of defying the 4 lb rise in the ratings.

Now Children is lightly raced with an overall progressive profile and is in good hands. His victory last time in a fairly competitive Goodwood handicap showed him ideally suited by soft ground and as he does things gradually and gallops on dourly he seems ideal for this track.
