SUN­DAY SER­VICE

It has taken a long time for the hand­i­cap­per to drop JUS­TATEN­NER (nap) in the rat­ings but now that he is down to a mark of 88 he can cause a mi­nor shock in the Kelso 4.50.

A win­ner off 106 in 2016 it has taken the asses­sor

11 runs to drop him to a more at­trac­tive mark and he can make the most of it on a track that should suit.

Ear­lier, SU­PE­RIOR COM­MAND (1.35) and KELPIES MYTH (2.40) can strike a dou­ble for Grand Na­tional win­ning trainer Lucinda Rus­sell.

The Be­gin­ners Chase at Ut­tox­eter (3.30) can go to ALLEE BLEUE, while the Ir­ish Ce­sare­witch, (Na­van,

5.15) looks des­tined for ABYSSINIAN, step­ping up to an ex­tended two miles of the first time.

Limerick’s Munster Na­tional should be a real slugfest through the mud and that is sure to suit TULSA JACK.

A well fan­cied 16-1 shot for this event last year, an early mis­take put paid to his chance but he gets a chance to race off the same mark here and is worth an each-way wa­ger.

HOT TO TROT While Ge­orge Wood should be ap­plauded for his ride on Dol­phin Vista EX­AM­INER

THUN­DER­ING BLUE, in sev­enth and GM HOP­KINS in 10th.

NEXT WEEK

The Ce­sare­witch is the bet­ting main­stay at New­mar­ket next week and I fancy a mas­sive run from the six-year-old VENT DE FORCE.

Hughie Mor­ri­son has his team in su­perb form and this for­mer win­ner of the Henry II Stakes looks hand­i­capped to run a huge race.

Of course in a field of 36 there are dan­gers all over the place.

On good ground Oceane looks sure to step up again on his run in the trial race here two weeks ago, while a softer sur­face would aid the chance of Shrewd, third in that same event.

At the time of writ­ing there are 45 en­tries in the De­whurst Stakes, 16 of them from the Aidan O’Brien yard, but the Ir­ish raiders could well be thwarted by As­cot maiden win­ner HER­CULEAN.

in the Cam­bridgeshire last week, sev­eral of the se­nior jock­eys should be lam­basted for switch­ing to the far side for no good rea­son.

We can up­grade the runs of (prob­a­bly wants softer ground)
