DOCTOR CROSS – 19.10
Paul Hanagan makes the 193 mile trip from riding in the 16.00 race at Hamilton to take this ride on Doctor Cross for his boss Richard Fahey. Still a maiden he has showed improved form including over this trip in a higher grade at York. Wetherby is a similar layout to York and so if he can reproduce that recent from he must be in with a good chance here.
PANTOMIME – 20.40
If you are going to come that far in a day it won’t surprise if you have picked up a nice couple of spares from yards you only occasionally ride for. The form guide would suggest that Pantomime has the beating of The Res Dev Way, Clayton Hill and Jan Smuts and this means that he should have a great chance here particularly now Paul takes the ride. I do like the Res Dev Way but all his wins have been on the all weather at Southwell and Newcastle so not confident now on turf at Wetherby. Again the selection is at a decent price of 10/1 or 11/1 and you should be able to get at least 3/1 on the place market on Betfair.
