BALLYMAGROARTY BOY (2.30 Hexham) @ 9/4
BALLYMAGROARTY BOY has had just four runs over fences to date and he’s managed to make the frame in three of those four outings latterly when finding only Wayfinder too strong by one length at Chepstow latest.
Nigel Hawke’s Milan gelding last struck over hurdles back in December 2018, but he’s been fairly lightly raced since and seems to have found a jolt of improvement following wind surgery. He looked all about stamina last time at Chepstow and while this is a considerable step up in trip he could relish the stiffer test.
Testing ground holds no fears and the addition of a visor for this latest outing may well eke out some further progression; still unexposed as a chaser there could be better to come and with a good amateur able to take 7lbs off his back he could post a big run.
BOITRON (3.00 Dundalk) @ 11/4
BOITRON won a Listed contest at Newbury back in August 2018 during his time with Richard Hannon and took his chances in Group company in the wake of that win where he contested the Prix Jean-luc Lagardere and the Greenham Stakes prior to joining Denis Hogan.
The Le Havre colt probably needed his first run back following almost 18 months off the track when beating only two home over this course and distance last month; but he stepped up on that effort latest when getting to within a head of Highly Approved and he might be able to go
one better here.
He steps back up to one mile for this latest run which is unlikely to present an issue now he’s regained racing sharpness and on the pick of his historic form he ought to go close for all this trip perhaps just stretches him.
Joey Sheridan though can claim a valuable 5lbs and he can make his presence felt in this claimer where he could get back to winning ways.
RUN FORREST RUN (4.25 Kempton) @ 5/1
RUN FORREST RUN got off the mark at the third attempt when successful on turf at Chepstow back in July, beating Eva Icon by one length over this trip and George Baker’s charge might have found his stamina stretched on the deep Southwell fibres and over an extra furlong on his reappearance from almost three months off last month.
However his latest outing came over course and distance and he quickly bounced back from that effort to find only a decent sort too good late last month where he was beaten just over one length behind Arion Fox.
He battled on well there without quite being able to match the winner; but the form looks fair and he may be able to go one better here from only 2lbs higher in the ratings.
