Fifteen runners but only two known pace setters: Eland Ally and Native Falls, who is my fifth top rated, Rich Again is fourth top, Relight My Fire is third and the three of them are very closely handicapped. My second top rated is Barney McGrew. Top rated is ENDERBY SPIRIT 12/1 but this one does need genuine good-to-firm going to show its best.
5:25 Leicester - A class three conditions race with only seven runners. I've got joint second top rated with Ajjaadd and Peace Seeker who is the only known front runner in the race and if the jockey does set a fast pace from the front it will be hard to catch but I'm hoping this will give the selection DUKE OF FIRENZE 13/2 something to aim at as its a hold-up type and I think five furlongs on good-to-firm going is its favoured surface.
SUMMARY: It's hard for everything to go right in a large field but with the forecast good-to-firm going ENDERBY SPIRIT 12/1 should have a decent chance of at least making the frame and has the recorded time to win the race. 5:25 Leicester - The favourite is the three- year-old Green Door and it could be open to improvement but I'm staying with the horse that's already proven itself and I think DUKE OF FIRENZE 13/2 is decent value.
