Cartmel & Ffos Las
Two runners today.
Ballyellis goes to Cartmel for the 3.55, a 3m 1+f handicap hurdle, partnered with Jordan Nailor. A couple of 4th places since a win at Fakenham in March, he’s now down to 121, 4lbs below his mark for that win. Though over 2m that day, is versatile for trip and with ground to suit here, looks to have a solid chance with Jordan claiming 3lbs too. Terms in his favour, a good run expected.
Imperial Acolyte goes to Ffos Las this evening for the 8.00, a 2m 4f handicap hurdle with Sam Twiston- Davies aboard. Second on his last two runs, both at Worcester over fences, looked every inch the winner until a mistake two out put paid to his chances a week ago. Returns to the smaller obstacles today and though 4lbs higher than his chase mark on 108, is in good form and looks to have a good chance of going one better.
