Yorkist ran into a couple of big improvers last season on decent ground and although he has form on soft I think he will be suited by the better ground today. He has been dropped to a decent mark after a couple of poor performances on heavy and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was a fair bit better today. I think the 11/1 on offer here is a bit of value and well get a decent run for our money.

This ran a great race to be 2nd .
Zaidiyn is a horse I’ve noted a few times being unlucky and he certainly was here on New Year’s Day when coming with a very good run only to make a terrible mistake at the last. He would certainly have been 2nd that time and is 5 lbs. better off with the winner here, who is favourite for this race. That should bring him right into the firing line here and were getting a decent looking 11/1 because of a poor run next time when he didn’t get home on soft ground. I’d be shocked if he didn’t go off about 7/1 here and he is well worth that.
2 Points win 11/1 Generally
Ran another solid race to be just done for a place in 4th. He got a bit far behind and never looked likely to win.
