The going at Ffos Las is currently soft, good to soft in places but it is a very difficult track to dry out so we are almost guaranteed soft ground on Wednesday. We’ve picked out four horses who ought to appreciate the conditions on the day.
12.50 Ffos Las
The Harry Fry-trained Imperial Esprit is likely to go off a very warm order for this 13-runner handicap chase. A seven-year-old son of Scorpion, he didn’t cut much ice over hurdles but looks a different proposition over fences, bolting up on chasing bow at Uttoxeter last month. He may be up 10lb for that but he still looks ahead of the handicapper.
2.00 Ffos Las
Twice a winner on soft ground already, Chinwag looks sure to go well in this competitive handicap. He won three of his last six races since he had wind surgery and ran as well as could have been expected on his return when second at Uttoxeter last month. There should be more to come.
2.35 Ffos Las
Lossiemouth has a real love for the mud and the former dual bumper winner came back from a lengthy absence to win well on handicap debut at Ascot last month. The step up in trip will suit and he still has very low mileage on the clock so further improvement has to be expected with blinkers replacing the cheekpieces he wore last time out.
3.10 Ffos Las
Tudors Treasure ticks a lot of boxes here. The 10-year-old is a course and distance winner and also loves soft ground. Narrowly denied here over track and trip on his return, he should be right in the thick of it again with a repeat run.
