Orin Swift – 4.45 Salisbury (12/1 – William Hill)

A recruit from Jonathan Portman’s yard, Orin Swift could prove to be of some value in a 1m6f Handicap at Salisbury.

The seven-year-old has struggled on his last two starts and he has been dropped back down to a respectable mark of 80.

Could Orin Swift return to form for Jonathan Portman?

He was only 1lb higher in the ratings when he struck over this distance at Goodwood back in April, seeing off rival Solar Screen by a length and a quarter.

The gelding last two wins have come at this distance and he clearly has the staying ability to tackle this trip.

With a price of 12/1, Orin Swift could push into the frame here.
