DEBATABLE (4.00) landed some major bets at Yarmouth last week and she is taken to defy a 6lb penalty on a return visit today.
Mick Appleby’s filly is ridden by 5lb apprentice Theodore Ladd, so remains well handicapped. Silvestre De Sousa was the man on top last time and he gave Debatable a no-nonsense ride, gradually pulling clear from two out to score comfortably.
DON’T DO IT (4.10) has been found a good opening by Iain Jardine at Newcastle. The three-year-old ran probably his best race at Musselburgh over today’s 1m 4f trip in early September when chasing home Makawee.
Jim Goldie’s Pammi, a useful yardstick in this grade, was well held in fourth, so it was a good effort. Don’t Do It found 1m 1f too sharp when third to Red Charmer last week and gets the vote over Falcon’s Fire.
Keith Dalgleish’s five-year-old is consistent at this lowly level but keeps finding a way to get beat, the latest example coming at Catterick on Saturday. He still rates the biggest threat.
