Leicester are eyeing the Placepot call and in the Apprentice Handicap (1.55) there is no need to look past the perennial bridesmaid At Liberty, whose best run came on the course and the distance under Tuesday jockey Joe Bradnam.
There’s no point going up against Highbank in Novice (2.30) as even his beaten effort last time would see him placed in that area, so save your powder for the Nursery (3.05).
Kevin Ryan has a good record with two-year-olds here, so stick with Camacho Star and also Emerald Duchess, whose last time here was in a better run.
Two is probably again the call in the fillies’ conditions stakes (3.40) in which Magical Sunset has a bit to find but is run lightly enough to overcome it. Add Beautiful Aisling, which has William Buick in the saddle.
It must be worth going up against the seller’s best To The Bar (4.15) as it hasn’t beaten a rival in three of its last four races. Try Emerald Lady instead who will like the conditions and whose jockey Pierre-Louis Jamin has a good track record for Karl Burke.
The Class 2 handicap (4.45) rounds out the Placepot and it might be worth taking on those who have raced in tough handicaps all year with Audience, who can improve for a cowl and gelding operation. , and Auditor, which can be forgiven its last run and is otherwise progressive.
