The good thing has obliged at 7-2; find out who Tom Collins makes his banker
This five-year-old gelding is far from easy to win with, which is probably why he hasn't scored in over two years, but he's too well handicapped off a mark of 62 to ignore (17lb lower than his last victory) and the way he finished when third last time out suggests his turn isn't far away. Well supported over this course and distance on September 26, Laughton made up a lot of ground in the straight from an unpromising position to go down by just three-quarters of a length to a subsequent winner. Although he's prone to being slowly away, he has a nice draw in stall four and can come through late in the day to end the drought.

I think this three-year-old filly could be a Listed-class miler in time and I was obviously disappointed that she couldn't maintain her unbeaten record last time out at Sandown on her turf debut. She came into that race off an extremely impressive victory at Chelmsford when given plenty to do in the straight, and the way she travelled at the Esher track last time made me think she was set to blow her rivals away once more. However, she didn't pick up once asked and eventually faded to finish a tame fourth. She's dropped back a furlong now, which I think will suit, and she should outclass these.
