HARRY UP can notch another success here with Towy Valley and Blue Tomato rated as the main dangers. The selection is a real force at this level, as evidenced by his win over this course and distance last time when he beat Blue Tomato. He has the plum draw which is key to his chance as he will try to make-all and he can notch his ninth career success at this venue. Blue Tomato is entitled to get closer to our selection today, but Harry Up did appear to win with a bit in hand last week and we expect him to confirm superiority this evening. Towy Valley is a lightly-raced filly but she may not get the race run to suit here as she likes to trailblaze and she will find that difficult with Harry Up also in the race. Came Back has a decent strike-rate on the all-weather but he is better over 6f and he may get outpaced. Harry Up is in great form and he can win again.
