STAG HORN (2.20) and Hollie Doyle have struck up a successful partnership and a hat-trick is on the cards at Pontefract.
Archie Watson’s three-year-old has a most progressive profile, making all to wallop in-form Trumpet Man at Catterick before again never seeing another rival at Goodwood. Stag Horn has favourite The Grand Visor, a well-beaten third in the Doncaster Cup last time, to beat.
It is highly unusual for a two-year-old to score by 17 lengths but NAAMOOS (1.45) can prove that his Beverley annihilation was no fluke by adapting to this slower ground in the Listed mile contest.
BENADALID (2.50) looks a big price at around 13-2 to land the 1m 2f handicap. This is his best trip and Benadalid was only denied a neck by Highwaygrey over course and distance last month.
