2:00 Ripon Racing Tips (6th August)

Twelve two-year-olds take part in this Fillies' Novice Stakes over 6f on good going. 

Just the one horse with a significant entry being Kevin Ryan's Dame Gladys. This British-bred daughter of Mukhadram adorns the familiar silks of Guy Reed Racing. She ran well on debut when finishing second at odds of 14/1. Then battled well to win by a short head at Nottingham against a fair sort. She was earmarked for the Hilary Needler Trophy but hasn't been seen since May. Ryan had her ready to run on the 9th June actually to contest the Hilary Needler but she refused to enter the stalls. May be something to consider if betting today. A small win penalty makes life a little hard but this step up in distance should be to her advantage. Interesting to see how she goes at odds of 4/1.
