Verdict

David Barron does well here with his sprinters and Lupin Pooter cannot be dismissed despite disappointing favourite-backers at York. The trainer has elected to put the blinkers on for the first time though the handicapper has erred on the side of caution by keeping him on a mark of 79. Although finishing ahead of him on the Knavesmire, PEA SHOOTER has been dropped 2lb since and Kevin Ryan's gelding can take advantage of that handicapping anomaly. Just Like Heaven ran respectably at Doncaster in defeat off today's mark and finished ahead of the selection when they last met while any money for Dreaming Of Rubies would be interesting as Ben Haslam's filly makes a belated return having failed to act on testing going at Newcastle in June. Elusive Bonus won an above-average seller at Ripon and has claims, even with a 6lb penalty.
