EDWARD LEWIS READY TO ROLL AT BEVERLEY FINALE

Edward Lewis takes aim at a big prize at Beverley's final meeting of the season on Tuesday when the progressive sprinter runs in the £20,000 Eddie And Violet Smith Conditions Stakes.

The four-year-old gelding was a fine second to Desert Law in the 16-runner Symphony Group Handicap at York last month and now attempts to go one place better at the East Yorkshire circuit.

Edward Lewis had been declared for the Ayr Gold Cup on Saturday, but he has been rerouted to Beverley following the abandonment of the three-day Western meeting in Scotland.

Trainer David O'Meara said: "He's been in good heart all season and won at Beverley earlier in the year, so we know he acts on the course.

"He ran a really good race at York and came out of it well, so we'll give it a go as it's a nice prize to win.

"He is having to give a bit of weight away to Alpha Delphini, but he's been a good horse throughout year and might just improve again."

Alpha Delphini, last season's Beverley Bullet hero for Bryan Smart, is a half-brother to Tangerine Trees, who won the Eddie And Violet Smith Conditions Stakes in 2010.

Robert Cowell and owners Cheveley Park Stud claimed top honours in 2014 with Kingsgate Native and again team up with the 107-rated Ornate, who was runner-up to Caspian Prince 12 months ago.

Paul Midgley has declared Elysian Flyer and Line Of Reason, who finished seventh behind 2017 Beverley Bullet winner Take Cover in a Group Three at Newbury on Saturday.

Ziggy Lee will be having his first start for 361 days and completes the six-runner line-up for the Lawrence Mullaney team.

Beverley's eight-race finale begins at 2.10pm, with the official going on Monday morning reported as soft ground.
