It was a weak run Songo won on his return from a year at Bath and the opener at Haydock (1.25) looks much tougher.
He’s pretty much a favorite but I can leave him out of Placepot consideration, with a consistent pair Carlos Felix and Wots Wi-Fi code prefer. The first, second on its last three outings, is now on the cheeks and is very well handicapped on the old form.
Bandinelli is a worthy favorite in the next (2.00), but I expect both Ok Sun and You missed me to run well, so these are the selections in hopes of getting that jolly out of the frame as well.
I wouldn’t be in a hurry to throw away Mighty Odysseus in the third (2.35), however, and it comes in with my game each way Who put fifty in youwhich could have been made available for this.
El Caballo and caturra are my two in a competitive Sandy Lane (3.10), while trying to get Winter Power out of the frame in the Temple (3.45) given his form away from York last year isn’t good enough.
King’s Lynn and Came from the dark are very solid at this level (the latter has some form of cracking course) and they are being given the green light.
That just leaves a tricky finish (4.20) and I’ll go with two again in the form of justcallmepetewhich ran very well and which now has on board the useful claimant Benoit de la Sayette, and Eldeyaarwho won on his side in Ripon last time and who is clearly in good spirits.
