14:55 Carlisle

A switch to sprinting really brought out the best in ELEGANT ERIN (best price 9/2) at Beverley last time and even with a 5lb rise I think she is a great bet to follow up at Carlisle on Friday for Paul Midgley. She travelled strongly under Graham Lee and as soon as he switched her she was always coming home best. She has untapped potential over the minimum and could be a fair bit better than her mark now. Ey Up It’s Maggie ran right up to form when third in a fiercely competitive handicap at York last time and if she has come out the race well she could emerge as the danger. Ventura Flame did it well over C&D last time and is also in the mix under a 5lb penalty. Havagomecca was a solid second at Thirsk last time but will need first-time cheekpieces to help her improve further if she is to claim this prize as it looks tougher to me.
