Market Rasen

Black Lightning
Add to betslip

This one took a big step forward after a wind op last time out and can build on that performance here. The handicapper has taken off another 2lb so off a mark of 82, you would like to think that this one, whose previous win came off 94, is in and around a winning rating now. Tabitha Worsley, who guided him to his sole success, is back on board and claiming a useful 5lb, so he’s weighted to go well here. Bizerta looks the obvious danger after almost winning at Huntingdon last time.

Blood Eagle

This former Andrew Balding charge seems to have gotten to grips with hurdles on his last two starts and can finally get off the mark here. Third at Plumpton back in March, the second in that race has since gone on to score off 10lb higher, he made his reappearance at that same track last month. He just found a Nicky Henderson runner too good that day and hit a bit of a flat spot a circuit out before coming back on the bridle. He’s entitled to improve a bit for that run. David Jeffreys had three runners here last year, two of which won, and this one can help bolster that record.

Monty’s Award
Add to betslip

The Summer Plate is one of the highlights of Market Rasen’s calendar and we should get a flavour of that in this trial for the main event. Monty’s Award seems to like it round here and can bounce back to form here. Third here off 122 in 2019, he’s potentially well treated on that form and he won here back in April off only 1lb lower. That was a taking performance, coming from off the pace to go clear in the final furlong. He ran up to an RPR of 126 that day so the form looks strong and a recreation of that run would surely see him go close here.

Imperial Acolyte
Add to betslip

This looks like a good opportunity for Imperial Acolyte to land his first win over fences. The Nigel Twiston-Davies trained 7yo ran well a couple of times at Worcester last month, including when finishing a two length second most recently. He arguably would have won that day were it not for belting the second last and the handicapper has left him alone following that run. Staple Head looks like he could be the main danger and hacked up in a point-to-point last month, but doesn’t look to have much room for manoeuvre off his current mark.
