Ross Brierley's first pick comes in the five-runner field in the 2:45, and he’s backing HM The Queen’s runner, Portfolio trained, of course, by Sir Michael Stoute… Pat Dobbs takes the ride for this Fillies Handicap race over a mile and two furlongs, a race that after some average performances at both Newcastle and Newmarket, needs to be a win. There is undoubtedly more to come from this one. In the 3:20, Ross’ pick is Captain Cooper for Kevin Ryan, with Shane Kelly on board for this Class 3 handicap run. This horse didn’t suit the race at Musselburgh last time out, and while much of Captain Cooper’s best performances have come on all weather, this could be a big run on Saturday. And finally in the 3:55, I’m Mable, for the former jockey Darryll Holland could be the way to go. While the transition from saddle to stand hasn’t been the smoothest, this class five handicap isn’t blessed with high quality competitors, and there has been steady improvement, particularly last time at Windsor.
