3.10 Leicester: Just Fine

A first winner for the King in these colours? I think so. Just Fine has run slightly better than his form figures suggest this season in some of the season’s biggest handicaps and will appreciate this slight drop down in grade and competitiveness here.

The Stoute runner has not had the best of passages in his last three starts and has always been staying on very well at the end of his races. In this smaller field he should hopefully get a clearer run through the field but the fact that this race looks certain to be strongly run, with a couple of likely pacesetters in the field, looks a real positive for him.

Just Fine isn't beaten far when sixth in the John Smith's Cup and can race off a 7lb lower mark now

Just Fine has never run at Leicester but both his wins have come at Sandown, a right handed track with a stiff uphill finish so it seems highly likely this course will suit him well. He is only 2lb off his latest winning mark and with Ryan Moore on board looks to have a huge amount in his favour.

3.45 Leicester: Speedacus

We don’t know an awful lot about Speedacus on this side of the Irish sea as he has only had one modest run for David O’Meara so far. However the record of O’Meara with horses from other yards stacks up and it is interesting he drops Speedacus back in trip here and calls on the services of Jason Hart, who is having a terrific season, especially in sprint handicaps.

Equipped here with a visor for the first time, the four-year-old has been dropped 3lb for that first stable run and certainly had a better record over five furlongs than six in Ireland so it would be no surprise to see an improved showing here.

4.20 Leicester: Angel Amadea

Chris Wall invariably tends to be a trainer to follow in the autumn and this season looks no exception. Wall acquired this filly from William Haggas carrying a handicap mark she couldn’t win off, but having made her final start for Haggas off 75, she'd worked her way down to 66 before strking form last time out, getting beaten a short head on the All-weather at Lingfield.

She has been put back up just a pound for that effort and given the form of her yard and the booking of Ryan Moore I think she has clear prospects of breaking her maiden here.
