Silver Forever did prove she was a class above the field yesterday, as she won with plenty in hand. Chilli Filli actually ran a big race to finish runner-up, and that gave me the impression that she wasn't 100% fit when she was a winning tip for us at Market Rasen, so I'd be happy to back her again in the future.
I'm going to be having a small play on the Sue Gardner trained, TRANS EXPRESS. This horse has won this particular race the last four times, which is some going. I think he will be quietly supported for that face, so I don't think we'll get an amazing price, but if they were ever to target him for one race all season, it would be this one. His recent form is a concern, but as a result his handicap mark has dropped down, and he should be fit for this run. He gets in this race right at the bottom of the weights, similar to the three of the last four times he has won this race (10st 2lbs – 10st 4lbs), so that should also be a big help for him. Off his current mark of 102 he is very well handicapped, but he is getting on in age. However, fingers crossed he runs well, and if there are some decent prices left available I think a small ew bet would be wise.

Off a mark of 98 I think there is definitely a horse in DALKINGSTOWN who should be getting competitive in a race like this. He showed that he has ability in his bumper days, where he managed to finish 1st and 2nd on three of his four runs in that sphere. However, even though he looked to have a bit of speed about him a couple of years ago, he definitely comes across more of a staying type. That statement can be backed up by his hurdles win at this track over 3m on heavy ground, where he travelled through that ground like it was nothing, and stayed on strongly to the line. With the ground being similar today, there is no reason why the same can't happen. He gets into this race off a decent weight of 11st, and his current handicap mark is far from being high, and is up against exposed horses, for the most part. He has yet to shine over fences, but now he races over 3m 1.5f and gets soft ground, this could be the perfect opportunity for him to showcase his talent again.
