Tom O'Roughley

Jack Tudor partners chasing debutant Tom O'Roughley here for trainer Alistair Ralph in a Conditional Jockeys' Handicap over 2m7f and they have a chance if taking to fencing. The six-year-old Yeats gelding is a maiden after eight starts, seven of them over timber, but has shown some improved form in recent outings at this venue (2m4f, good; third) and Uttoxeter (2m7½f, good; sixth). Regular rider Tudor was on board in both those starts and his mount begins life as a chaser from a basement mark and with only 10st 5lb to carry. He's got place claims if carrying that recent improvement into this sphere.


Bobby Dalton

Bobby Dalton has yet to start at an SP lower than 33/1 in three runs but his turf efforts at Beverley (5f, good) and Redcar (6f, good to firm) have not been without promise since he struggled on debut at Newcastle on the Tapeta in early August. He was beaten just over five lengths at Redcar 16 days ago on his most recent attempt and now heads into nurseries off a lowly mark of 57. His trainer has saddled a couple of winners lately and, with the yard in form, Bobby Dalton may outrun his price here.


Liberty Warrior

Liberty Warrior has improved since going into handicaps for the Kubler team. The Muhaarar gelding was second at Salisbury (1m2f, good) in early August, outrunning odds of 28/1, and has since backed that effort up in finishing a close fourth of nine over the same trip on the Tapeta at Newcastle this month - his first start on an artificial surface. He runs from the same mark here and could find more improvement in first-time cheekpieces.
