STRINGYBARK CREEK (5.00) won with a bit in hand at Catterick last Saturday and is capable of defying a penalty at Beverley.
Laura Coughlan kept a cool head as the leaders thundered off, picking them off a furlong from home. Stringybark Creek scored here over seven furlongs in July.
WARRIOR’S SPIRIT (6.00) was well handled by Tom Midgley to land an amateur riders’ event at Carlisle, easing clear of yesterday’s Hamilton scorer Edgar Allan Poe. They team up again with an obvious chance.
