Beverley’s NAP: SILKY WILKIE | 1:20pm Pepperells Solicitors Restricted Novice Stakes | Dom’s Pick
Karl Burke’s colt has picked up the silver medal on all four starts to date so will not get too many better chances to shed his maiden tag.
He’s shown fair form so far and connections are keen for him to remain over the five-furlong trip and that elusive win cannot be far away down in this class.
Consistent rather than progressive, he’s got experience to boot over all of these rivals and sets a clear standard.
NB: LINCOLN GAMBLE | 4:10pm Happy Birthday Greatest Husband Martin Spencer Handicap
The four-year-old son of Zebedee ran a cracker at this track two starts ago but improved for the mile trip at Carlisle last time out.
He’s only been hiked 1lb for that but there should be more to come at this distance on his return to the Yorkshire track.
His sole win was off a slightly lower mark so he looks far from handicapped out of things here and is a valuable enough price to find out.
