The booking of Ryan Moore for Esprit de Midas in the 8.10 at Ripon tomorrow is eyecatching. Only lightly raced he finished 2nd to Bond city at Ripon last time out were he was only beaten 1/2 length. He doesnt often race on turf but showed a return to form on it at Ripon and 8/1 would be a reasonable price for ew purposes if you can get it. Its not a race to go overboard in because as in all these sprints each has their day.
Of the others Excusez Moi could go well for the first time visor as this horse is pretty quirky and can either be good or awful. P. J. McDonald who has won on him before takes the ride and if you are able to see any of the pre race then you need to see how he is behaving as he runs better when he's being awkward.
Tajneed is well handicapped on his best form and ran well at Beverley behind Lenny Bee, which was a race that saw Hamish McGonagall finish 3rd, Fol Hollow 4th, Parsisan Pyramid 6th and Medicean Man 8th and all have won since, the first 3 of those in Class 2 handicaps, so you need to be very wary of him.
However the booking of Ryan Moore could just swing it for Esprit de Midas, but do it as an ew.
