Good racing looks thin on the ground , as does any real value outsiders.

Even Stevens looked like a horse ready to improve again after his last run after a break at Doncaster. He broke smartly and just wilted in the final furlong, hopefully in need on the run after a short break. A mark of 85 is well withing his grasp and he may not be as easy to catch today. 36 on betfair looks a nice bit of value.

I’m going to take small risk on Magical Macey , he hasn’t been in great form this year but showed a little more last time out and is back to his last winning mark here. He hasn’t the greatest draw in the world but his price justifies the risk at 33/1

1 Point win 33/1 Generally

Mezzotint is one I’ve been keeping an eye on lately and his second last run was eye-catching in that he didn’t get any kind of run at all and finished with loads left to give. He is bottom of the weights here and down to a very nice mark on his best form. Any kind of recapture here will put him right in with a shout. 20/1 looks good value.
