Verdict

Pertuis has been a real fun horse for the Micky Hammond yard and the grey appears to love life around Ripon having recently won the Ladies Derby over course and distance. Were he to turn up in a similar mood, he has every chance of registering another success. Wadacre Sarko has rattled up victories at Hamilton and Beverley over the last couple of weeks and Mark Johnston's three-year-old is open to progression but we prefer the claims of VALANTINO OYSTER. Tracy Waggott's gelding is a previous winner over course and distance and he can prove a modest run at Beverley to have been merely a bad day at the office. The handler is never afraid of running two with chances in the same race and Bright Applause has to enter calculations. Having struggled to win off today's mark on his last two outings, George Chaloner's claim will take off a valuable 5lb. Kuantan One is tried in headgear having disappointed on a recent start at Newmarket.
