SIRJACK THOMAS (best price 18-1) was almost too fresh and well for his own good when strongly-fancied at Listowel three days ago and as a consequence, he paid for his early exertions in the testing conditions late on. Back on a more suitable surface to allow his qualities to flourish and nicely draw, this talented grey has rather slipped under the radar on the back of just one excusable performance and he can reward solid each-way support at a track where he’s also gone well in the past.
DANIELSFLYER (best price 12-1) and Safe Voyage are closely matched on their Galway encounter where there was just a neck between them at the line, but as the former was forced to race wide and forfeit ground throughout, he rates the value call of the pair to come out on top of their rematch. Having travelled well at Ballybrit, David Barron’s inmate was sent for home when he ran out of competition to carry him any further into the race and in the end that manoeuvre counted against him in the final analysis. The son of Dandy Man has gone on to run another cracking race in a valuable and top-class handicap at Goodwood and now nicely drawn here this afternoon in box seven, the four-year-old looks primed to go well over a track that should suit his run-style.
