Shark Hanlon sends over DO THE BOOKIES from Ireland with some decent form to his name. He's been placed in his last three starts under 7lb claimer Rachel Blackmore and, handicapped to reverse Tramore running with Breeze With Ease, should be able to give weight to this modest bunch despite a record which shows no wins in 18 starts. Shaker Style looks the pick of the home team on his second at Wetherby, though Iktiview is on the same mark as when a close second here in February and is tried in blinkers today.
