Ripon Tips

15:10 – 6f William Hill Silver Trophy Handicap (Class 2)

The list of past winners will show that no three-year-old has won this race since it was introduced in 2012. However, a further delve into those statistics will show that only eight have run in the race (compared to 140 older horses). Three-year-olds need to have already shown a very useful level of form to make the cut for this, and with a very handy 4lb weight-for-age allowance, I am taking a chance on two of them at big prices and on opposite sides of the track. 

OUT THE HAT (0.5 point win bet at 16/1) was slightly disappointing when beaten by two lengths at Redcar last time out but prior to that, he had won consecutive races at Hamilton and Haydock. As quite a big horse, he has taken time to find his form and remains open to plenty more improvement. His recent wins both came in good style and his trainer also commented that he had been working well at home. He should relish the ground conditions at Ripon today and can outrun his odds under regular jockey Jack Garrity.

Another that will appreciate the underfoot conditions is MACHO PRIDE (0.5 point win bet at 33/1), who is nicely weighted and will wear cheekpieces for the first time. Just like the first selection, he disappointed last time out but it’d be no surprise to see him bounce back to form here. His win at Haydock two starts back came in the style of a progressive sprinter and although it was in a much lower grade, he pulled well clear of the rest. He has previous experience of the track at Ripon, is well regarded by connections and Harrison Shaw has been aboard for all but one of his 11 career starts.

15:45 – 6f William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap (Class 2)

Any draw bias should be negated by the fact that the main pace setters are spread across the track. With the field likely to split in to at least two groups, I am hoping class can prevail in the form of two of the horses drawn in low numbers: LAMPANG (NAP – 1 point win bet at 7/1) and BRAD THE BRIEF (0.5 point win bet at 20/1).

After winning his first two starts in good style, the Tim Easterby-trained Lampang mostly disappointed in his next seven races. However, his talented colt bounced back to form with a good win at Hamilton in June and after a defeat at Ascot, he lost out by just a neck to Danzeno, who won again at Nottingham this week.

His last run saw him beaten less than six lengths in the Stewards’ Cup, but he’d have got much closer had he not lost many lengths at the start. Crucially, this will be the first time since his Hamilton win that he will encounter his optimum ground conditions. Although he handles some cut, he is at his best on fast ground, and Ripon’s surface is currently good and continuing to quicken.

Tom Dascombe’s Brad The Brief is the highest rated runner in the field and can defy top weight with jockey Kieran Schofield taking off 5lbs. This four-year-old is a fascinating contender on this drop back into handicap company as his last seven starts have been in a higher grade. He has won a Listed race and Group 3 contest in that sequence and his four runs this year have all come in high class events.
