MANDARIN speaks my language in Ripon’s 8.10 (nap).
Ian Williams’ five-year-old has been hammering on the door with good seconds at Doncaster and then Sandown last time.
This looks an easier race and the likely fast ground suits well too.
LEVER DU SOLEIL (4.30 Ayr, nb) came back to the Flat with a bang when winning well at Musselburgh last week.
He has a 5lb penalty for that which still sets him nicely ahead of the handicapper.
WEDDING DATE (7.20 Windsor, treble) won well for Thore Hammer Hansen at Newmarket and the team can score again in this lesser company.
She has scored on her past two outings over the minimum trip and can make it a hat-trick.
