Shrewd Larkham can progress.

RALPH BECKETT has campaigned Larkham very shrewdly this season and he can continue his progression in Pontefract's Dalby Screw-Driver Handicap.

From a strong-looking five-day entry, the race has cut up pretty badly and only six will go to post. Beckett's three-year-old cut no ice in maidens last season but he had no trouble breaking his duck in a Wolverhampton maiden back in April.

In three further starts he has only tasted defeat once, in a decent race at Salisbury, yet he still has a handicap mark of 86.

The Whitsbury handler has stated that Larkham only just does enough when he hits the front which makes him a very hard horse to assess but is seems likely he has not stopped improving yet and the stiffish track should suit.
