Glencoe Boy

Last time out winner Go On Gal and Ed Walker’s Critique, who wasn’t suited by a slowly run race last time, are respected here, but there’s a feeling that Glencoe Boy’s turn could be coming. There have been signs of that on his last two outings, firstly when staying on into fourth at Lingfield over shorter, having lost his position on the turn in, and racing from out of the handicap,. He followed that up with a fifth-placed finish at Leicester, again from out of the weights, having lost a shoe in the process. The winner that day scored again under a penalty so the form looks solid enough, and David Flood’s charge arrives here off the same mark, but with Aidan Brooks able to claim his full 7lbs.


If any of these are likely to be suited to a step up to 10f, it’s Chris Wall’s Mustazeed. Last time at Wolverhampton he travelled wide into the final turn, well down the field, was sixth entering the last furlong, but stayed on strongly to be beaten half a length in third. That race has thrown up a winner and a placed effort from the two to run since, so looks a fair renewal for the level, and it may be that the Territories gelding can negotiate a 2lb rise with the extra distance this time. Jack Mitchell, who is profitable to follow at Yarmouth (+£22.27) takes the ride this time.

Foreseeable Future

Taking them along at a very good clip last time might have taken its toll on Foreseeable Future last time, when just running out of petrol late on to be collared in the final strides. Jamie Spencer is in the saddle once again, and not only is he one of the most profitable jockeys around at Yarmouth, the handicapped has allowed Ruth Carr’s charge to line up here off an unchanged mark. He stays further, so this step up to a mile should pose no problems, and if he can perhaps keep a lid on things a bit in the early stages, he can go one better this time round. Fox Power is the big threat, for all that he’s not the most reliable.

Oud Metha Bridge

Hat-trick seeking Thomas Lanfiere is a respected favourite here, for all that he doesn’t do things the easy way. There could be a spot of value against him from a veteran who often runs well over track and trip, especially in these conditions. Julia Fielden’s 7yo has a win and three places from six course and distance runs on good ground or faster. The underfoot conditions might have been to blame for his disappointment at Pontefract last time, but with a sounder surface here, he can bounce back. Dropped to a mark of 66 here, 4lb lower than the figure he last won from at this venue, he’s a solid Win and Place bet.

About Yarmouth Racecourse

For a course with just one Listed race on it’s calendar, Yarmouth has played host to some top flat racing performers over the years. The likes of Dubai Millennium, Ouija Board and Raven’s Pass have all tasted success in Norfolk as two-year-olds.

It hasn’t all been that high class at Yarmouth though, in the course’s early days events such as donkey racing and pig chasing were held at the venue. These days it’s thoroughbreds only at the course, with a number of summer flat cards on the calendar.
