2.20 Ripon: Class 6 Handicap, 6 furlongs
Currently trading as favourite, I believe there is good reason to believe indeed, that Sir Derrick can get off the mark today.
The gelding has ran with promise in his two starts this season, now that he’s eligible for a handicap mark. Soft ground was probably not ideal on those occasions and the 7f trip stretched him the last time.
However, as a late May foal he is due to come into his own and looks certain to improve dropped to 6f again now on fast ground. With a small ease in the weights as well, Sir Derrick seems poised for a big run.
10pts win – Sir Derrick @ 4/1 PP
