Pontefract Tip: Liquid
Form looks patchy but has run better than the results suggest. Not beaten far at Nottingham and clocked a good time for the grade. Should get a good tow into the race and can finish strongly.
Liquid is a difficult horse to predict but he has ability as his two wins and five placed efforts from 16 starts testify. Often his wins seemingly come out of the blue but despite finishing seventh last time out he was only beaten 2.75 lengths in a good time for the grade.
It is unlikely we’ve seen the best of the 4-year-old and he should get a good tow into the race from stall 4. The handicapper has eased him a few lbs since the start of the season and his running style should see him finishing strongly on this stiff track.
