James Eustace feels that conditions are right for WESTER LODGE tonight at Ripon. He is running over 1 ¼ miles and has been showing good form this season over this trip despite having won over 1 ½ miles last season. On paper there should be plenty of pace in the race which will suit him. He will also appreciate the good/firm ground. He ran well at Chester last time but the rain had just eased the ground which was not ideal for him. If conditions remain in his favour he has a big chance tonight.
ARIODANTE should also find conditions to suit at Newmarket on Friday evening. He too likes genuine fast ground and should like the track. He is trying 1 ½ miles for the first time but he should get the trip. He was a bit disappointing last time out but the ground had been over watered. The same conditions should not occur at Newmarket and he will run a decent race.
