Haaf A Sixpence has received some attention coming into the race this weekend, though with such a varied field it will be difficult to know where the value is, with, for example Prince Of Johanne, who is at 25/1, seeing some action over the last few days, having seen his price drop from 33s.

The Ralph Beckett-trained Haaf A Sixpence won last time out, one of two wins this year. He will have been prepared well for the race. Lightning Cloud has five career victories from 15 starts, but it must be noted that the last of those victories came in 2011, with the grey gelding’s only run this year, in April, being a third place finish.

Currently at 16/1, a horse that could attract some attention is Solar Deity. The Irish colt has won four of his six starts this season, placing in the remaining two, and has had a month’s break since his last race. With the four year old enjoying a strong second career season, he would be one to look at, at least for an each-way, if not for the overall.
