Race Tip

MR SQUIRES (1) arrives in top form and is 4lb well-in under the penalty he received for producing a comfortable 4.5L success over 7f at Wolverhampton last week. The four-year-old gelding can follow up before his new mark kicks in. STAR SHIELD (4) was unlucky not to reel in a horse who got first run at Ripon (1m) when going down by a neck. Thereabouts if securing a good gallop to aim at. Others to note are the recent Brighton handicap runner-up DAISY ROOTS (9) and ROARING RALPH (2) who was third behind the main selection in the previously-mentioned Wolverhampton event.
