Up a bit, down a bit

The Totesoop6 Stakes (Handicap) Class 2 over 6f at Goodwood was won by Parisain Pyramid and as a result he was raised 3lb to 91. I had doubts if he was raised too much that he could win again but 3lb is reasonable in the circumstances. Johnny Mudball was left on the same mark of 89 so now he is getting his act together we should keep an eye on him as he would have gone close had he been able to start his run earlier. Rileyskeepingfaith also stayed on the same mark of 102, whilst Son of the Cat was dropped a 1lb to 92 and Run for the Hills 2lb to 98.

As a result of The Betfred Temple Stakes - Group 2 Borderlescott was dropped 2lb to 114, whereas Spin Cycle was raised 3lb to 110. Look Busy stays on 104 and can go well back in a handicap and Blue Jack remained on 110.

The Class 2 Sprint Handicap at York over 6f went Hamish McGonagall's way and he was raised 7lb to 99 for his 1 1/4 length win from Ziggy Lee who was also raised 3lb to 86. The latter looks well handicapped on this run as he came with a storming run down the stands side and looks capable of progressing further. Old stager Indian Trail was dropped a 1lb to 84 as was Taberet to 88, whislt one of the unlucky ones Rasaman remianed on the same mark of 81. Sohraab was dropped 2lb to 96 after showing up for a while in the first time visor and Rievaulx World with Tom Eaves up finished out the back again and was dropped a further 3lb to 82 as a result, surely he can run better off this sort of mark now, maybe he'll be dropped in grade. Cheveton went down 4lb to 92 for finishing a tailed off last.
