The Bet Through The Racing Post Mobile App Handicap.



This Class 2 event throws up the usual mix of horses for a Saturday afternoon, there was a 6f race here yesterday but having viewed it I don't think it made any difference as to were you were drawn it just happened to be that Spinatrix led this side of the group, the whole field coming down the middle of the track.
The going  appears to be very soft and as we know you need everything in your favour to win one of these sprints so previous winning form on soft is probably a must and in that case we need to look to the likes of the Irish challenger An Saighdur, Ballesteros, Free Zone, Jamaican Bolt, Judge 'N Jury, Kyleakin Lass, Pearl Blue, Steps and Take Cover.
The booking of JohnnyMurtagh for the latter is a positive as the horse is lightly raced and open to further improvement and Murtagh could be the man to extract that. The horse won well last time at York over the distance and beat several of his rivals, he is locally trained and his trainer is expecting a big run and although he is fav he seems to have a lot in his favour.
Jamaican Bolt hasn't had much racing this year but he now has his ground and having been second in this last year he is an ew alternative to Take Cover.
