The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with two to follow on Sunday
The mile Pomfret Stakes at Pontefract is the highlight on a low-key Sunday without any Irish action and Sir Michael Stoutemight be celebrating as Gabr looks to have a huge chance of landing the Listed prize. The race looks likely to be dominated by the two three-year-olds receiving plenty of weight at the foot of the racecard and Gabr, who finished a decent second in this company at Newmarket last time out after coming home in sixth in the St James's Palace Stakes is the classiest of the pair. The son of Intello will look to sit prominently under Jim Crowley from an average draw in stall four and can strike entering the straight.
Ian Williams' string is in fine form of late and he sends just one runner to Wolverhampton on Sunday, which is interesting to say the least. Matewan, a three-race maiden who was beaten a total of 41 lengths in his starts as a juvenile, makes his seasonal reappearance off a mark of 61 in what is a lowly handicap. He ran behind some useful horses in his starts last year, including Emaraaty at Newbury, and this represents a much easier task for him given he's likely to be better with a year under his belt. The step up in trip to an extended 1m1f is likely to favour the son of Epaulette and the booking of Luke Morris is encouraging.
