Selection Reasoning:

I’m very sweet on the chances of Baltic Baron despite this being a very competitive mile handicap. He enjoyed little luck at the Qatar Goodwood fesival in the Golden Mile when ridden for luck up the inner in behind Seniority, Beat Le Bon & Game Player. Baltic Baron did well to finish fifth and showed good speed yet not enduring a hard race. He is drawn wide in stall 17 but Danny Tudhope will cross over in behind the field and hopefully get a clear run up the straight. Previous to Goodwood he almost gave 2 stone to the winner Irv over course and distance. The application of the Visor seemed to work at Goodwood and remains in place. Baltic Baron can defy a 2lb hike in the ratings by landing this valuable race for his local connections on ground he will enjoy.

Selection Reasoning:

Silvestre De Sousa suffered a tortous passage at Goodwood on this filly with his passage blocked three or four times up the Goodwood straight. Whitemountainfairy should have won and gets in here off the same mark of 85. She is really well handicapped on her best form when rated as high as 97. At Goodwood she missed the break too so there is hope that she can pull everything together to land this fillies handicap over the same trip. She is drawn wide in stall 18 but that is irrelevant as she is not a front running filly. Crafty Madam was on the shortlist having beating a very good filly in Surrounding at the Curragh albeit in receipt of alot of weight. However, it is the Andrew Balding trained runner that carries the weight of our money along with 8-7 on her back.
