Ballyhome went close in his last run at Market Rasen and can claim the honours today in the 16:20.
The eight-year-old was second to Weakfield over the same distance back in January and will again team up with Connor Brace for the fourth time, a run that has included a November win at Wetherby.
Trainer Fergal O’Brien clearly fancies him over this C&D and he could go a touch under the radar, with Mark Keighley’s Back On The Lash leading the market at 7/4.
Two straight placings bode well for Ballyhome and back him to get the job done after his brief rest following that near-miss a couple of months ago.
Earlier in the afternoon, What Will Be seems one to be on for Olly Murphy on the all-weather at Lingfield at 14:00.
Some decent runs have suggested potential for the gelding, finishing a length-and-a-half behind Red Phoenix at this venue at the end of February.
Sticking to the same one-mile trip seems sensible, considering he is staying on his original mark for his second handicap outing, and Jamie Spencer looks a safe pair of hands to guide him home.
