Noted horses is the theme on both the flat and jumps. We have a number from both codes in evidence this afternoon and at Keeneland later.
My new jumps shortlist is now available on request. Just go to my website: http://www.slh.co.uk
In compiling the list I have focused on trainers able to place their horses adeptly, avoiding the obvious from the top level yards.

We will concentrate on one from the flat list this afternoon at Newmarket as they hold their final meeting of the 2015 season.

Newmarket 3.45 Ben Marshall Stakes (Listed Race)

Gm Hopkins continues to run excellent races, his second on latest start at in the valuable Balmoral Handicap at Ascot two weeks ago suggests he is still progressing. The ground today will be a little softer than that Ascot run, but that should not be a significant factor. Runs today a pound lighter than his victory in the Royal Hunt Cup in June.
Has past winning form at Newmarket, his last visit to the track produced a creditable sixth in The Cambridgeshire where he was hampered and could not reach the leaders.

A reproduction of the level of form shown at Ascot last time sets a decent standard.
I have him at 5/2 on my provisional tissue, which is currently the general price on offer with 11/4 in places.
