Plenty with claims but HOTSPUR HARRY is due to be raised 3lb more than today’s penalty after winning easily at Nottingham last week and George Eddery’s allowance is a further positive. Sagauteur scored at Newcastle last month but Brancaster’s win at the same track came back in 2020 and he’s having his first start since. Bollin Margaret has every chance after placing at Beverley while Balgair is not out of this back on Turf.
