Three average flat cards on Tuesday at Brighton, Beverley and evening fixture at Newbury.No real interest at either Brighton or Newbury,though there does look quite interesting 1 mile 4 furlong claiming stakes at Beverley .
1MILE 4F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 BEVERLEY 2.45
PORGY :Inconsistent 6-Y-0 gelding who is not always most straight forward, though has plenty of ability and has won twice this year,including an impressive winner of 1mile 4f class 4 handicap at Goodwood earlier this month beating Classic Vintage by 3.25 lenghs off mark 79 .Finished fair fourth last time in 1 mile 4f class 3 handicap at Haydock off mark 85 .
VERDICT :Interesting little claimer with only Palamar ,Porgy & Hels Angel having any serious chance at these weights .
Strictly on BHA handicap ratings Palamar is the one to beat after winning 2 mile handicap off mark 85 last October at Musselburgh and ran very respectable 7th of 19 last week at Royal Ascot in Ascot Stakes over 2 mile 4f ,though all his best for has been over 2 miles and the drop back to 1mile 4f may not suit and looks too short in market at around 6-4.
Hels Angel looks fairly treated at these weights and won claimer at Catterick in early May ,though was very disappointing last time in handicap at Catterick ,needs bounce back though can't be totally dismissed.
PORGY has to concede weight all round ,though is proven over the distance and handles any ground ,takes massive drop in class into class 6 claimer and was an easy winner at York last July the only other time he ran in claimer.Looks sure to go well with ideal conditions 11-4 looks decent value.
