NAP Imperial Presence 11/4 (B365) – Uttoxeter 16:15 – 2pts win WON +5.5pts
Dr Newland has had ten winners from his last twenty runners, nine of which had Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle, so it would be no surprise to see another big run from Vosne Romanee. He defied a career-high mark in impressive fashion at Stratford earlier this month but carries a further 7lbs penalty for his troubles and coupled with the extra three furlongs he encounters here today I feel could prove vulnerable.
Harry Fry has a good record at Uttoxeter so Voix D’Eau, a twelve-length winner last time out, would have to be considered for a follow-up, however preference is for Imperial Presence who has won his last two and convincingly beat both Newton Geronimo and Voix D’Eau at Stratford when last seen in June. He won’t mind the forecast fast ground but has also won on good-to-soft so will be comfortable if any rain arrives and can take another step forward with victory here today.
NB Pentland Hills 7/2 (PP) – Pontefract 14:30 – 2pts win NR
Pentland Hills has improved for each run so far this season and put in his best performance to date when stepped up to this trip and finishing a solid second to a subsequent winner last time out. Jockey Silvestre De Sousa is an eye-catching booking for the ride – he has a 25% winning strike rate in the last 12 months at Pontefract and over the same time period is 3 wins from 3 when riding for the stable.
Sepre Presto has course form but needs to bounce back from a couple of poor recent efforts while Royal Cosmic is three from five over the trip but all wins have come on soft ground so the biggest danger looks to be Multellie who has won in higher grades off higher marks in the past. He hasn’t visited the winners enclosure in almost two years but has recent form figures of 322 and been getting closer with each run so wouldn’t be winning out of turn.
