His late turn of foot was impressive and this trip on fast ground is clearly ideal. This Listed class shouldn’t be the ceiling for him.

She was impressive when scooting in at Newmarket on comeback. She went from the front and can take another step forward with Frankie staying in the saddle.

VENTURA EXPRESS (5.30 Pontefract, treble)

He enjoyed himself when winning over this course and distance last week. He’s back under a penalty and can pull off a repeat.
