Handicap Finest: Clipper Logistics H’cap (Heritage) – Orbaan @ 10/1 (BetVictor, Betfred, Boylesports)

David O’Meara loves a very good handicap, whether or not it’s at Ascot or York. And Orbaan is a type of horses that retains cropping up in some of these races. He’s been campaigned totally and has discovered himself dropping to a 5lb decrease mark than in final yr’s race, the place he completed a very good fourth. That drop within the handicap, plus superb floor circumstances and drawn subsequent to Spirit Catcher who will wish to be distinguished, factors him as the best candidate.

As I defined in yesterday’s column, Northern trainers love the Ebor assembly. And Ed Bethell appears to have campaigned Level Lynas with this race in thoughts. His finest end result this season came visiting C&D, dropping by a head to Croupier. He’s been given a break since disappointing at Royal Ascot which can play into his fingers. A profession excessive mark of 96 doesn’t put me off backing him at 12/1 (BetVictor), as he’s completed second twice at York.


La Trinidad was in my tracker proper firstly of the season and has had a really gentle marketing campaign up to now. Solely three runs, together with a win on agency floor at Doncaster, provides him a mark of 94. However with Jonny Peate claiming three kilos, he’s solely on a 2lb greater mark than his earlier win of 89. Which came visiting C&D. He has to beat an out of doors attract stall 20, however drawn subsequent to tempo might show to be a stroke of luck. A pleasant huge worth at 28/1 (Normal)
