York 3.15

York 3.15 3 Mr Lupton @ 10/1 / 16 Nameitwhatyoulike @ 11/1 (all Bookies odds to 4th but Lad/Coral/Sky to 5th) 1 point e/w both

A cracking 6 furlong Sprint and the Course form and overall form in big fields makes MR LUPTON very hard
to leave out of calculations with odds to 4th everywhere and 5th with 3 leading Bookies. The draw should not be an issue and 
the booking of a decent Claimer from a yard not scared to use that tactic when the chips are down looks a sigh that they want
to desperately win this race. The excellent Flying Pursuit had a massive win for us in the summer, making all given a brilliant
ride by Rachel Richardson and I am loathe to desert it but the recent run against NAMEITWHATYOULIKE makes me think
that one has enough of a pull to turn the tables. It is also important to point out that this horse excels in the Autumn with
wins at Ripon and here in 2016 of marks of 98 and 101; and one in 2015 at this stage of the season off 95, it runs here off
a mark of 97, and that looks a very strong opportunity based purely on the form book. The Trainer form is a slight niggle
but the run of this one 2 weeks ago suggests there is nothing fundamentally wrong.
