Also worth a punt but this time up at Musselburgh is the Kevin Ryan-trained LAUGHTON, who carries top weight in the 5f nursery (2.30pm). A €150,000 breeze-up purchase, he has shown a fair level of ability in three maidens, including when finishing fourth on his Haydock debut (good to firm), and his last two defeats came on ground that was perhaps softer than ideal.

Today’s conditions should be far more to his liking and he’s certainly with the right trainer to exploit what looks a very generous opening handicap mark of 65. I couldn’t believe Paddy Power were as big as 5/2 (9/4 after I jumped on), when he’s as short as 11/8 with bet365.
