The amateur riders’ handicap at Beverley (1.40pm) looks weak and Temper Trap is value to record a sixth career success.
He scored on soft ground at Ayr in October off 3lbs higher, but also has form on a sound surface, having won both on good and good to firm ground at Hamilton last year.
He has come back down in the weights after six unplaced efforts this term, but he hasn’t been running badly at all in recent starts and was fourth in a higher grade at Doncaster last time.
Tom Easterby impressed in the saddle when winning on just his second ride, on Just Hiss at Newcastle last month. He looks a rider to follow in these contests going forward and hopefully can record another win today.
RECOMMENDED BET: Temper Trap win @ 11/2 (all firms)
