Lil Guff
Racecard

This 2yo has been a little unlucky not to lose his maiden tag and this looks like a good opportunity to get off the mark. Twice second in maiden contests before finishing third and getting a little tapped for toe over the extended 5f at Bath, 73 looks like a workable mark for his handicap debut here. Back up to 6f is a positive and the booking of Richard Kingscote is certainly a positive one. He’s the one they’ve all got to beat. Night Candle can chase him home and is fancied for Exacta purposes.


Hesperis
Racecard

Hughie Morrison’s filly found 12f a bit sharp on his penultimate start but got back to winning ways when scoring over this course and distance last time out. There turned out to be no shame in that defeat, with the winner going on to score comfortably next time out off 9lb higher. She did it pretty easily last time, travelling to the front with a bit of authority and staying on well with the field well strung out behind her. She’s only up 4lb for that win and that looks like a lenient rise. This daughter of Dubawi can follow up here.


Ivadream
Racecard

Ivadream is now 2lb lower than his last win and only 1lb higher than when last scoring on turf. Roger Charlton’s 4yo bounced back to form over the extended 7f last time out, making up plenty of ground to finish a close third. The extra half a furlong should suit here and this looks like a good opportunity to get his head in front for the first time this season. The penny seems to have dropped for Hurricane Helen this season and she could prove to be ahead of her mark of 54. She can chase the selection home.


Helian
Racecard

Sold as a yearling for 145,000 guineas, this son of Shamardal hasn’t quite lived up to that price tag, but could yet have some winning days ahead of him. Now in the care of Alexandra Dunn, he heads here having put together some good performances for Chris Dwyer, most recently finishing third in a Class 3 at Sandown. He contests this off a mark of 73 and down at Class 5 level he should be able to pick up plenty of prizes. Royal Partnership could be the main danger having only gone up 1lb for his win on handicap debut.

About Ffos Las Racecourse

The newest national hunt course in the country, Ffos Las was built on the site of a former coal mine and opened in 2009 by Sir Peter O’Sullevan. In that time the course has hosted both Arabian and harness racing, in addition to the more traditional flat and jumps cards.

For a track little over a decade old, it’s worth noting that it has already acquired the Welsh Champion Hurdle which was revived in 2010 for the track with subsequent Grade 1 winners The New One, Saphir Du Rheu and Oscar Whisky all landing the race in the last decade.
