Market Rasen racecourse stages its Summer Plate Day on Friday 10 July and the highlight is the Summer Plate Handicap Chase. It is a Grade 3 run over 2 miles 5 furlongs and 89 yards, and 17 runners are set to go to post. It’s quite feasible that any of the 17 runners could win this handicap but the handicapper appears to have given some a better chance than others to win this valuable prize.
Copper West was a good winner over course and distance last year but a 7b rise could be a tough ask against horses that have won bigger races than this. That comment certainly applies to the top-weight San Benedeto who is trained by Paul Nicholls and ridden by Bryony Frost. Nicholls also has another interesting runner in Lough Dergh Spirit, who is back down to his last winning mark on his first start for his new trainer and has win surgery since his last run.
The trainer and jockey combination of Dan and Harry Skelton often do well at this meeting, but Solomon Grey has been beaten off similar marks in handicaps before. Alan King also has two runners in Fidux and Potterman and both have chances off similar marks to ones they’ve won off in the past.
But the trainer that really catches the eye is Harry Fry, who is represented by the trio of Art Of Payroll, Drumcliff, and Bags Groove. Art Of Payroll is on a winning mark, but the 11-year-old hasn’t won for three years. However, the booking of Sam Twiston-Davis suggests a good run is expected. Drumcliff hasn’t won for two years but is also back down to his last winning mark after wind surgery with Jonjo O’Neill Jnr booked.
Harry Fry’s stable jockey Sean Bowen is aboard Bags Groove and that’s why he’s our Summer Plate Tip. Bags Groove is another horse returning after Wind surgery and, hopefully, that operation will allow him to take advantage of a 6lb lower mark than he last won off. His record on right-handed tracks is 7 wins from 10 starts and the Fry stable had a winner on Thursday.
