14:15 Nottingham – Gracious John (BEST ODDS 4/1 with betfair)
Gracious John won well last time out over this distance and has won over this trip at Nottingham as well. He has a seven pound claimer on board today, so that should help him deal with the rise in weight. He goes well over soft ground and there’s no doubt that this is his best trip. He did well in a French Listed race a few years ago, but has shown that handicapping suits him. Considering the amount of runners in the field, he might be worth an each-way bet as well and I’m looking forward to see whether this horse can make it two from two.
