Taajub has been running well lately at Epson, particularly a very good 4th in the Dash Handicap. He didn’t appear to like the step up to 6 last time and I think the step back to 5 furlong’s here should be ideal. He wouldnt need to do any more than he has already been doing this year to have a very decent shot here and the 21 available on Betfair looks at least 5-6 points too big. He is ideally drawn near the centre.

Fratellino hasn’t had the best of luck in the last while, but has plenty of very decent runs of this mark or higher. He has had a small break since the beginning of june and a break has helped him in the past. His form figures lately look poor enough but in fairness he was in a very good listed race last time where he was rated 10lbs lower than everything else and got hampered at the start of a York handicap before that. He has won a listed race this year on the AW, and the form of that race has worked out very well since. 40/1 with William Hill looks far too big and worthy of a decent bet EW.
