Big Les(3.30 Ripon, nap)

Racing Post Ratings: Sam Walker

Laughton(5.40 Carlisle)

Long time since successful but back to form at Thirsk last week and has already gone well for promising young rider Harriet Lees. Shouldbe bang there.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Sheepscar Lad(3.30 Ripon)

Earned an improved speed figure when touched off at Pontefract eight days ago and Nigel Tinkler's sprinter can pick up deserved compensation.

Longshot: Olly Eden

United Kingdom(8.30 Windsor)

Paul Cole's horses have been running well this fortnight, and his gelding has displayed promise in all three of his outings. Now handicapping and dropping back to 5f, he may go well at a price if improving from his seasonal reappearance in June.

Ireland:Mark Boylan

Balinaboola Steel(4.35 Cork)

There was plenty of promise to be taken from Balinaboola Steel's recent Wexford third and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Garrett Power's charge go very close in the 80-109 handicap hurdle over 2m3f. He competes off a 2lb higher mark here but he could be a tough nut to crack if everything falls right.
