USE your Ed to find the winner of Leicester’s 3.10.
Trainer Stuart Edmunds has had three winners from just six runners this year and his EARLSHILL (nap) looks to have a fine chance of extending the hot streak.
He won twice over hurdles last spring and was going well in a good race when slipping on the turn when switched to fences.
A two-month break since his last run behind smart prospect Drovers Lane should have done him some good.
I reckon CLARENDON STREET (1.10 Leicester, nb) could be really smart.
He found all sorts of traffic problems when runner-up to Saturday’s Grade 2 winner Birchdale at Warwick on his hurdles debut and he won easily at Wetherby. A weight penalty shouldn’t be a problem.
NAP 3.10 Leicester – EARLSHILL: “He has won two hurdle races and a point-to-point”
NEXT BEST 1.10 Leicester – CLARENDON STREET: “He carries a 6lb penalty on this occasion but can prove a cut above the opposition.”
TREBLE 5.15 Wolverhampton – RED ROYALIST: ‘In good form and has been raised 1lb for his 2m Kempton second’
Edmunds also has a rare Flat runner in RED ROYALIST (5.15 Wolverhampton, treble).
He did well when runner-up on his first race on the all-weather at Kempton last time.
That was his first try over 2m and he was only seen off in the closing stages. There’s races in him in this grade.
