EW bet for today..

Perfect Point, a half-brother to smart performer Pinpoint, made a winning start to life in handicaps last month, in the process leaving the impression he's well ahead of his mark and, with tonight's extra distance sure to suit, he'll prove nigh-on impossible to beat at an attractive price of 4.6. The only slight concern would be the form of the yard, who aren't quite firing at present, but Walter Swinburn did have a couple reach the frame over the weekend and that's enough for us to pile into what is undoubtedly the best bet of the day.


Swiss Cross improved when winning a six-furlong Kempton handicap in October and his recent third from a wide draw in a hot seven-furlong handicap at Chester was at least as good. This looks quite a bit easier.
Aye Aye Digby won twice for Henry Candy in 2009, but showed his form only once for Jim Boyle last year. He made an encouraging start returning for this stable at Lingfield last time and there's no doubt that he's on a good mark.
Ghostwing was visored for the first time when winning a warm six-furlong handicap at Chepstow a year ago, but has put in largely moody displays with or without headgear since. His recent run at Ascot was a step in the right direction, but he does most of his racing at six furlongs.
Caprio is a quirky sort whose last five wins have all come in claimers, the latest on the all-weather in January. Both his efforts last month were poor and he's easy enough to oppose back in a handicap on turf.
Beaver Patrol is not the force of old, hence he needed a career-low mark to end a losing run over course and distance in September. He was unable to build on his recent return at Ffos Las earlier in the month (both over a mile) but this trip probably suits him best nowadays.
Buxton readily quickened clear when gaining his third course and distance success last month. He has to put aside a lesser effort at Lingfield last time, but course form always counts for plenty here.
Magical Speedfit isn't one to rely on, but he is a four-time course winner. He was slightly unlucky when runner-up over six furlongs here a week ago so much depends on whether he's as effective at this trip

My idea of the winner is Swiss Cross
