WE SEND THREE TO PONTEFRACT ON MONDAY.

At the time of writing the going is currently soft, good to soft in places, with the promise of more rain to come.


Our first runner is Lairig Ghru in the 2.0.pm, he has drawn stall 17, in a field of 17,in the six furlong event, and when the going is really soft at Pontefract, the field often manoeuvre to the stand side, so at this stage it is impossible to know whether he has the best or worst of the draw. Lairig Ghru had very good form as a two year old last season, recording three solid runs, including a debut third over Monday's course and distance of six furlongs, last September, on good to soft ground.In two runs so far this season, he failed to stay over jumps at Cartmel. and probably found the mile two far at Hamilton last time, Graham Lee takes the ride.


Brickadank has his third flat run at 2.30.pm, which means he should receive his first handicap mark after this. He started his career last December with a respectable forth in a bumper at Newcastle, but has faced quality opposition the last twice in maidens, on both occasions at Ripon, over 10 furlongs, and 12 furlongs, on Monday he steps down to one mile, in another tough looking race, Graham Lee rides him for the first time.


Frankelio returns to the scene of his success on his seasonal debut back in June, when winning from stall one. This time, over the mile again, he has stall 11, in a field of 14, and it remains to be seen whether that is good or bad. Since that win, he has run well at Ripon, and Pontefract again, before disappointing for the first time this season at Ripon last month.He is only 1lb above his win in June,the race is at 3.0.pm, and regular pilot Graham Lee rides.
