Daniel & Claire Kubler
Dont Tell Claire 
Wed 19th May 2021
20:05, Kempton Park

Progressed nicely last season and hopeful she can continue that this season. First run up against race fit rivals so sure to be a bit of improvement still to come as well.

Jamie Snowden
Stoney Mountain 
Tue 18th May 2021
19:25, Huntingdon

Stoney Mountain sustained a nasty cut when 3rd on stable debut over fences. He's taken a while to get back into top shape, and ran a very creditable race at Aintree when he met all sorts of trouble in running, and wasn't able to get into a challenging position. He stayed on well there though, and should be there or thereabouts this evening. Decent chance.

James Evans
Nobel Leader 
Tue 18th May 2021
18:55, Huntingdon

Things not gone well for him this season and he seems to have lost his confidence. This time of year he can come to himself though so stepping back up in trip on good ground might just see an improvement.

Gary Moore
Kloud Gate 
Tue 18th May 2021
18:25, Huntingdon

Second runner in the race for us and looks our better chance. Bounced back to winning form last time here over this trip (winning by 6 lengths) and despite being up 7lbs for that looks to have another decent chance. Ground will be fine and has come out of that last race really well. Bit more needed and having won off a break last time, the 'bounce factor' is a worry, but seems well at home and hopefully should have every chance of following up.

San Pedro De Senam 
Tue 18th May 2021
18:25, Huntingdon

Ran below-par last time here at Huntingdon, but nothing came to light from that. Had a month off to get over that run and is a past course winner here, so the track is fine. We are also dropping him back in trip, but today is a bit of a recovery mission.

Iconic Muddle    WINNER! winner

Mand amends for a recent unlucky unseat.


Tue 18th May 2021
17:55, Huntingdon

Was unlucky last time out at Plumpton when getting hampered by a faller and unseating Josh at just the second flight. Is fine after that run and is back out quickly to try and make amends. Trip and ground are fine and even though it won’t be easy with 12st to carry we head here on every chance and should be the one to beat.

Hit The Rocks 
Tue 18th May 2021
17:55, Huntingdon

Second runner in the race for us and gets in here with a much lower weight. Ran okay last time when a fair second at Plumpton and that came after being hampered by a faller too. Hood is on for the first time to try and help him concentrate on his jumping. Ground is fine and with his low weight not without a chance either.

Michael Scudamore
Fancy Shapes    WINNER! winner

Great info from Scu and another TQ View winner too!


Tue 18th May 2021
17:25, Huntingdon

Our better chance on the day. Yet to win from 5 runs but should have more to come. Ran a fair race at Warwick last time but just got tired in the closing stages so we've had her wind done since. First run back so always a small bit of caution but has shown up well at home and is also 4lbs lower this time. We expect him to take a big step forward here from her last run and don't think she'll be far away.

Simon Dow
Blue Beret    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but still a top run.


Tue 18th May 2021
17:15, Wolverhampton

Has run well here and generally progressive throughout her career so far. Likely to stay 12f and could get the run of the race under promising apprentice who knows her well. Sure to find her races and no surprise to see her get started today.

Beholden    WINNER! winner

Promising effort from Jamie's horse.


Tue 18th May 2021
16:55, Huntingdon

Beholden won a bumper on debut and has been placed in a couple under a penalty. He has also been placed on the flat. He's got a bit of pace, jumps well and looks to have improved at home on the back of a wind operation. He should be winning races of this nature through the summer but is sure to improve for this hurdling debut.

Ajax Tavern 
Tue 18th May 2021
16:55, Huntingdon

Looks between the first three in the market really. Our horse is a fair flat performer but has only had two runs over hurdles so will benefit from getting a handicap mark really But will gain more experience here and that will help going forward. Good ground will suit but recent run suggest we've got plenty to find here.

Charlie Fellowes
Little Gem 
Tue 18th May 2021
16:45, Wolverhampton

Little Gem won nicely at Southwell and suggested she might stay another furlong. This is a very sharp track so if she can stay a mile anywhere it’s here. She has a good attitude and can go well.

Fascinating Lips 
Tue 18th May 2021
16:25, Brighton

Getting better with each race and got in the winners’ enclosure again last time at Lingfield. That came over 1m2f but kept on well that day to suggest this 1m4f is worth a crack. Has come out of that race well and is only up 2lbs here. Can’t see any track issues and with just seven career runs this horse should have more in the locker to come. Should be the better of our two in the race and hopefully can go well again here today.

Ivaquestion    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Simon.


Tue 18th May 2021
16:25, Brighton

Patchy record in recent starts but likely to enjoy the conditions and seems in good form. Stays further so will definitely be finishing off and could go well at a big price.

Raihaan 
Tue 18th May 2021
16:25, Brighton

Another race we’ve two in. This 5 year-old is having his first run for us after coming over from Germany. Has won once over there from 12 starts. We’ll learn more about the horse here in terms of trip etc too, but we are starting him off over 1m4f and Rhys is able to claim a handy 5lbs. Any rain will be fine based on old form, but having last raced 5 months ago, we’ll expect the horse to improve for this no matter what.

Desert Marathon 
Tue 18th May 2021
16:00, Nottingham

Desert Marathon is improving with each race and looking quicker and quicker. She showed plenty of speed last time out so I am happy with the drop in trip. Never tried this ground before so needs to prove she can act on soft.

Scott Dixon
Driftwood    WINNER! winner

Another place effort from Scott's horse.


Tue 18th May 2021
16:00, Nottingham

Has ability at this sort of level but has been a bit frustrating and is yet to win at race from 8 starts. Is, however, her first run on the turf here today so we are hoping that will help and also sports the hood for the first time too. Soft ground should be fine and stays a bit further than this 6f trip, so looking forward to seeing how she gets on, but probably a watching brief until we see her run on the grass in a race.

Aiguillette 
Tue 18th May 2021
15:55, Brighton

Yet to win a race from 12 starts, but has gone close many times. One of two in the race for us and looks to have a chance of being involved. Ran well on his return run at Lingfield last month (3rd) and Rhys rides this time and is able to claim 5lbs. Stayed on well over 7f last time too, so the step up to 1m here should suit, on what will be his first try over this distance. Should not be far away.

Ed Dunlop
Dew You Believe 
Tue 18th May 2021
15:55, Brighton

Took a big step in the right direction last time out at Wolverhampton (4th). On the grass for the first time today and stepping back up to 1m will suit. Nice draw in 3 and in an open race that the Gary Moore horses are feared, we head here with each-way claims. Nicola Currie rides.

Celestial Point    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary and the team


Tue 18th May 2021
15:55, Brighton

Less exposed than our other runner in the race, with just 4 career runs. Yet to win a race but has shown some ability in each start. Has been getting a bit outpaced over 5f and 6f in her races so the step up to mile is a bit of an experiment, but we feel it will suit her better. Gets a fair weight pull from the older horses too and if coping with the extra yardage then not without a small e/w squeak.

Julia Feilden
Fields Of Berries 
Tue 18th May 2021
15:55, Brighton

Didn't seem to get the trip last time so dropped back in distance and grade here -blinkers are also applied so jut hopeful of a better run.

Soros 
Tue 18th May 2021
15:30, Nottingham

Soros won nicely last time out proving he has no issue with 2 miles. The softer the ground the better. He has a lovely attitude and can go well.

Tinsmith 
Tue 18th May 2021
13:20, Wolverhampton

Tinsmith hasn't taken to hurdling, as he took a nasty fall on his hurdles debut and broke a couple of ribs. He's slowly becoming competitive on the flat now, and should win a race or two, but this looks competitive and the track might be sharp enough for him.

Neminos 
Tue 18th May 2021
13:00, Brighton

Lightly-raced so hoping he’ll have more to come having only shown average form to date. Been gelded since last run and we feel the track will be fine (first run here). Also dropped a few pounds and Rhys is riding today and claiming 5lbs. More needed and might just improve for the run, being it was 6 months ago he last raced, but hopefully of a step forward than last time and in what doesn’t look a great race is not without an e/w chance.

Billies Girl 
Tue 18th May 2021
13:00, Brighton

Has shown a bit of ability from her three races so far but into a handicap here for the first time will help. Track, trip and ground are fine and should benefit from the first-time blinkers too. Mark Crehan rides and also takes off a handy 5lbs. Each-way claims.

Dilly Rosa 
Tue 18th May 2021
13:00, Brighton

Has been running fairly consistently in a low grade - she tries hard and George Rooke knows her well. If she handles the track and the ground we are hopeful of a good run.

Gay Kelleway
Moveonup 
Tue 18th May 2021
12:30, Brighton

Ran okay here at the end of last month - only beaten 3 1/4 lengths. Is down a few more pounds here and should be fine on the slightly softer ground, as long as it doesn't get too soft. Doesn't look a great race either so that will give us an each-way chance here if building slightly on that last outing.

Croeso Cymraeg    WINNER! winner

Great return run from James's horse.


Mon 17th May 2021
20:05, Leicester

First run back after a long break so hoping to blow the cobwebs away here and show us he can repeat the sort of form he showed last summer. A big field and competitive handicap, but is well at home and you couldn't rule him out.

Tim Vaughan
Eloquent Charm 
Mon 17th May 2021
19:50, Windsor

First day at school here today for this 3 year-old. Shows up well enough at home and bred for this sort of trip. Will learn a lot from this today though and improve for the experience.

Harry Dunlop
Quelle Vitesse 
Mon 17th May 2021
19:50, Windsor

Ran far too keen on debut at Newbury last month and didn't last home over 1m2f. Trying her down in trip (1m) here so they should go faster and, therefore, likely to settle better. But very much a 'work in progress' horse and will be better once getting a handicap mark.

Dream Design 
Mon 17th May 2021
18:35, Leicester

Dream Design built on her debut and will have learned more again last time from that experience as she still showed signs of inexperience.

Lee Carter
Album 
Mon 17th May 2021
18:20, Windsor

Down the field on debut run for the yard at Ascot last time out, but was a better race than this and that was his first for a few months. Will be more competitive in this lesser grade and is dropped a few pounds. We are also trying him back to 5f as does show plenty of pace at home and is a course winner here at Windsor too. Probably a bit to prove off this mark still - based on old form when with Stuart Williams - but is well and better than last time expected. Any rain (has won on heavy) is fine too.

Hasty Lady 
Mon 17th May 2021
17:50, Windsor

She has been in good form at home and this looks a nice introduction for her and she will come on for this run. William Buick takes the ride.

Gypsy Lady 
Mon 17th May 2021
17:50, Windsor

Ran okay last time at Brighton on debut, but was just slowly away that day - would have learned a lot from that and a step foward on the cards here with the slightly longer trip a plus. Several non-runners helps, but likely to need more time still and will benefit from a handicap mark too.

Arenas Del Tiempo 
Mon 17th May 2021
17:20, Windsor

Helm Rock    WINNER! winner

Nice call from the Kubler camp.


Mon 17th May 2021
16:30, Carlisle

Helm Rock has shaped with bits of encouragement on all his starts now entering handicap company he should find life a bit easier, he won’t mind give in the ground although if it got very heavy it would not be to his liking.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

More place money for this sprinter.


Mon 17th May 2021
16:15, Redcar

Capable sprinter at this sort of level and heads here in good order after a close second at Epsom last month. Up just a pound for that here and will be fine on the softer ground. Looks a very open race though, with all 9 runners having a chance, so could be a race decided by a split decision in-running. Each-way chance.

Manhattanville 
Mon 17th May 2021
15:40, Redcar

He has  been pleasing in his work at home and has been showing all the right signs. This is a perfect option for him to start his career off and I am hopeful he will runs a nice race. Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Oliver Sherwood
Peur De Rien    WINNER! winner

Landed the e/w money.


Mon 17th May 2021
15:30, Ffos Las

Roger - as he's known at home - had a successful season last winter and apart from two races where he pulled up through confidence issues he’s been consistent. Roger has really taken to fences and as a big long striding horse he loves to get into a good rhythm, Ffos Las is a course with two long straights so it should suit him. Roger has remained in good form and this will probably be his last run before a summer break, he’s fresh and well so fingers crossed he can retain his consistency. Roger is a kind, gentle horse who is a beautiful mover he can be gassy at home but he is basically good to ride. Should not be far away and looks to have a solid e/w chance.
Suzy Smith
Animal 
Mon 17th May 2021
13:45, Ffos Las

Has taken a bit of time to get his confidence over hurdles and has a tendency to be a bit keen. Drop back in trip probably a help to him here too and should be able to make the frame today in second start in a handicap.

Mutawaarid 
Mon 17th May 2021
13:20, Redcar

He ran a very promising race first time out this year when finishing second a Wolverhampton. He has come out of this race well and this looks a nice option for him. The Richard Fahey trained Grangeclare View looks the horse to beat on form. He has drawn 16 and Dane O'Neill takes the ride.

Dusky Days    WINNER! winner

Another TQ View winner this week!


Sun 16th May 2021
17:17, Stratford upon Avon
DEC Odds: 3.6(Betfair Exc)

Dusky Days is a brother to a good horse. He makes his racecourse debut here in a race which doesn't look to have much strength in depth. The favourite won a bumper and carries a penalty as a result, and the 2nd fav showed some placed form in a bumper too, so its not a walkover, but he goes well and shouldn't be too far away.

Mazikeen 
Sun 16th May 2021
15:17, Stratford upon Avon
DEC Odds: 7.6(Betfair Exc)

Mazikeen was useful on the flat, but tipped up early on hurdling debut for her flat trainer. She isn't the most straightforward of individuals, but goes well and her jumping has improved. This is a bad race, and she'd only have to run to a mark of 100 to win this, and if she can put it all together then she should be better than that, although the soft ground will be an unknown.

Chez Hans 
Sun 16th May 2021
14:47, Stratford upon Avon
DEC Odds: 23(Betfair Exc)

Bit to prove at the moment after not jumping great and unseating at the first at Stratford last time out. The blinkers are on now for the first time to help with his concentration, but really need to see a return on the track to be more confident.

Henry Oliver
Badness Backfires    WINNER! winner

Promising effort from Henry's horse.


Sat 15th May 2021
20:20, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 5.7(Betfair Exc)

A horse that came to us from the Gordon Elliott yard in Ireland - has only had two runs for us since, but isn't the most straight forward either. Was in the process of running a big race last time at Bangor when unseating Lorcan Williams three out. Seems none-the-worse for that and off the same mark should have every chance. Olympic Honour is now a NR so that helps us too and has increased our chance. Should not be far away and have a decent e/w chance.

Robin Dickin
Fitz Well 
Sat 15th May 2021
20:20, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

Still lightly-raced with only five career runs, has shown some ability but has also had some issues. we are still building up his confidence, and he got badly hampered turning in last time. He really wants further but its all about education & confidence for hiom at the moment. Ground is fine too so be happy with a step forward here and an improved run in what doesn't look the best of races, but fairly competitive for the grade.

French De Guye 
Sat 15th May 2021
19:50, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 23(Betfair Exc)

Penny starting to drop with him now and if he can up his game a bit more has e/w chances here today.

Cheers Delboy    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Robin.


Sat 15th May 2021
19:20, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 22(Betfair Exc)

Pleasing run back last time at Warwick (5th of 12). Has come out of that race well and we are dropped 4lbs too. We also have Lorcan riding to take off another 3lbs, so a fair bit better off than last time. Trip and ground are fine too, so not without a small e/w chance at a fair price, but the Kirby horse is in-form and could still be ahead of the handicapper. wouldn't want the grond to go too soft

Madera Mist    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Tim's 7 year-old.


Sat 15th May 2021
18:50, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 4(Betfair Exc)

Tight little race. This 7 year-old won at Cheltenham in December and hasn't disgraced in two outings since at Ffos Las and Cheltenham again (3rd both times). Just got a bit tired in the closing stages last time over 3m2f, so the drop back to 3m is a plus and in this better race we get in with just 10-7 to carry. Ground is okay too and any rain won't hinder either. Should not be far away.

Floral Bouquet    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Jamie.


Sat 15th May 2021
18:50, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 7.8(Betfair Exc)

Floral Bouquet has been in the grip of the handicapper for the last couple of seasons, and every time he relents a bit she comes 2nd and goes back up in the weights.....however, she has taken well to chasing and was once again 2nd last time out at Worcester and should give her running once again in this valuable chase. Wouldn't want the ground to turn soft though.

Redbridge Gold 
Sat 15th May 2021
18:50, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

Redbridge Gold hasn't taken much racing since she won a bumper in good style on good ground a couple of years ago. She was placed twice over hurdles, but jumps fences well, and has been waiting to go chasing. However, back from another long absence, she is bound to improve for this run and she wouldn’t want the ground too soft either.

Skandiburg 
Sat 15th May 2021
18:20, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 5(Betfair Exc)

Skandiburg did very well for his previous yard and arrived with us off a high enough handicap mark but showed improved form in a first time tongue tie to go down by the narrowest of margins in a thrilling finish at Doncaster. Unfortunately, the handicapper has nudged him up yet further and he will have to improve further, but I believe he has done.  He is fit and well and will handle the ground if a bit of rain falls too. Tough off top weight, but certainly has a good chance.

Between The Waters 
Sat 15th May 2021
17:45, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 23(Betfair Exc)

Between the Waters had a very productive summer in 2019, but his handicap mark rose accordingly and he therefore suffered last summer and struggled off an inflated mark.  Back down to a realistic level, he can once again have a good summer.  He is in great form at home, and comes here in good condition but will undoubtedly improve both mentally and physically for this seasonal debut, and wouldn't want the ground to soften.

King Ottokar 
Sat 15th May 2021
16:45, Newbury
DEC Odds: 5.1(Betfair Exc)

Is in great form and looks to have got his ground. He is unbeaten at Newbury and we have a lovely draw right in the middle. There are very few excuses today so looking forward to a big run.

Alternative Fact 
Sat 15th May 2021
16:45, Newbury
DEC Odds: 22(Betfair Exc)

He was disappointing at Chester last start where he got knocked around and never ran a race. He has come out of this race very well and this looks a nice place to go again. King Ottokar will be the horse to beat on form but let’s hope Alternative Fact is back to his old best. Tom Marquand takes the ride.

Kilchreest Moon 
Sat 15th May 2021
16:35, Bangor-on-Dee

Looks to have a leading chance here after winning at Chepstow last month - his first career win. Up 5lbs for that win here but we gave him a month off to recover and seems well for it. Nick Schofield takes over in the saddle, but knows the horse well and now he's got his head in front we are hoping that confidence will eke out a bit more improvement. Should have a good chance.

David C Griffiths
De Bruyne Horse 
Sat 15th May 2021
16:30, Thirsk
DEC Odds: 34(Betfair Exc)

Did okay on the AW over the winter but is returning to the grass here today. Drop back to 6f is okay and grass rating is now 2lbs lower than when winning at Southwell in Feb. Has only won once from 25 starts on the turf though, so a bit to prove, but is well at home and this is his grade these days. Small e/w chance.

Society Lion 
Sat 15th May 2021
15:50, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 22(Betfair Exc)

He has been in good form at home and this looks a nice place to start him off. The William Haggas trained Ametist will be the short priced favourite and I am hopeful of a strong run first up although he may need it. Harry Burns who claims 7lb takes the ride.

Corri Lindo    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Henry.


Sat 15th May 2021
14:50, Bangor-on-Dee
DEC Odds: 7.45(Betfair Exc)

11 year-old now, but still showing up well in his races. Returned to form last time out at Stratford with a close third. Down a few pounds from that helps and we've got Ben Godfrey riding to claim 5lbs here too, so overall 7lbs better off. Slight step up in trip is fine and won't mind the ground or any more rain if it comes. Place chance.

John Leeper    WINNER! winner

Another TQ View winner - Next stop the Derby!


Sat 15th May 2021
14:05, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 2.7(Betfair Exc)

He showed a lot of potential on his second start when quicken late to score a very easy 4 length success at Newcastle late in April last month. This looks a nice option for him to be upped to stakes grade and we are all hoping here he can live up to expectations. Richard Hannon’s Fancy Man looks the horse to beat on paper. William Buick will partner John Leeper.

Duke Of Firenze 
Sat 15th May 2021
13:35, Thirsk
DEC Odds: 26(Betfair Exc)

Can ignore the last run as fluffed the start and then lost a shoe in the race. CD winner here, having won this race in 2019 when last run, too and prior to that last run has been going well, including a nice win at Lingfield last month. Graham Lee takes over in the saddle and knows the horse well. In good order at home and with a bit more luck in the shoe dept must have an e/w chance.

Isaac Wonder 
Fri 14th May 2021
17:50, Aintree

Has a fair record over fences - 7 runs and six top three finishes (2 wins). Fit and well after a decent third at Perth last time and is up in trip here. A bit of an unknown with the distance, but we feel he's been doing his best work in the closing stages so it's certainly worth a go. 2lbs lower than last time too and so if getting home would not be without a chance here. Captain Tom Cat the obvious call, but we'd have Each-way claims.

Copper Coin 
Fri 14th May 2021
17:20, Aintree

Trappy little race with just three runners. We look to have the Fergal O'Brien runner to fear most, but Copper is in great form and heads here on a three-timer after wins at Huntingdon and Wetherby. We've 6lbs to find with Fergal's horse, but we feel there is more improvement to come and fingers crossed he can put in a bold bid to land the hat-trick.

Madame Peltier    WINNER! winner

Great call from Charlie.


Fri 14th May 2021
16:55, Newbury

Has run very disappointly the last couple of runs, but she is much better than that! I am looking forward to seeing her run on the turf and she should like the ground.

Enough Already 
Fri 14th May 2021
16:55, Newbury

Didn't race as bad as the finishing position suggested last time at Lingfield - was slowly away and also had to race very wide. Therefore, did well to only be 4 3/4 lengths back at the line. Down a pound for that helps and even though he's yet to win on the turf - he's only had 6 runs on the grass and been second and third four times. Apprentice race though but we've a useful pilot in Katherine Begley, who has ridden 19 winners and ridden in over 200 races. Each-way.

Global Hope 
Fri 14th May 2021
16:20, Newmarket

Hands and Heels apprentice race so probably not one to get too involved in. Global has had a nice break since his last run but returns on the turf on a 3lb higher mark than on the AW. Alex's 5lb claim helps with that and the drop back to 6f will also help. Just be happy with an improved run and should give young Alex, who has ridden just the one winner, a nice spin. But the main worry is the soft ground as might not suit.

Maysong 
Fri 14th May 2021
16:20, Newmarket

We decided to give him a break to try and freshen him up after a disappointing campaign. He has been in good form at home and should come on for his run here at Newmarket. Bradley Harris takes the rid

Ahdab 
Fri 14th May 2021
15:50, Newmarket

He won for the second time last start under a very patient ride from Dane O'Neill. This looks to be a tougher ask and the horse to beat on paper looks to be the George Boughey trained Jean Baptiste. Dane O'Neill takes the ride again on Ahdab.

Red Poppy 
Fri 14th May 2021
15:40, York

Is talented but quirky. She hated the rattling quick ground last time and a small field doesn't suit.

Byron Hill 
Fri 14th May 2021
15:25, Newbury

Cabrini 
Fri 14th May 2021
15:20, Newmarket

Is a filly we like a lot but she needs two more runs to be handicapped - handy to run at Newmarket but looking forward to seeing her in a handicap.

Injazati 
Fri 14th May 2021
15:20, Newmarket

Is a lovely 3 year-old with a bright future. This is a tough starting point though but he should still make a nice debut.

Amazing Red 
Fri 14th May 2021
14:50, Newmarket

He has been in good form this year and didn’t quite handle the track at Epsom last start. Golden Rules holds some very good form and will be hard to beat but hopefully our stable legend can run a good race. Mark Crehan who was successful on him at Leicester takes the ride.

Master The Stars    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View result this week.


Fri 14th May 2021
14:15, Newmarket

He was unlucky last start when hitting the line strong in a slowly run race to only be beaten half a length. This looks a slightly tougher option and we have decided to take 5lb off his back with the use of apprentice Mark Crehan. The horse to beat on paper is the John Gosden trained Tenbury Wells.

Sterling Knight

He has pleased us in his work at home and is now ready for his racecourse debut. This looks a nice option for him and Jim Crowley takes the ride.

Bellarena Lady 
Fri 14th May 2021
13:40, York

She was impressive last start at Leicester when breaking her maiden and the form from her Newmarket race has franked well. The horse to beat on paper is the first time out winner of Clive Cox's who looks a potentially smart sort. Bellarena Lady will be ridden by William Buick.

Ajrad 
Fri 14th May 2021
13:00, Newmarket

He is a very consistent horse who hasn’t quite broken his maiden as of yet. He looks to be in good form at home and this looks a nice spot for him. The horse to beat on paper looks to be the Andrew Balding trained May Night who is a very consistent sort. Dane O'Neill takes the ride.

Newtonian 
Thu 13th May 2021
20:10, Fontwell Park

Debut run for this horse today. Newtonian has a great attitude he is very laid back and only does what he has to at home but when he does get stoked up he can work nicely without being flashy. He is a half brother to a mare I train called Makety and I’ve always thought a lot of her but she’s been desperately unlucky on a racecourse so she hasn’t realised her true potential. Newtonian is such a dude at home, he basically walks around as if he’s half asleep and couldn’t give a stuff about anything. Nice to get going with him and should run a nice race, but his three rivals all have experience on the track and that might give them the edge.
Episode 
Thu 13th May 2021
19:40, Fontwell Park

Won well here three runs back but even though she's run well since here has just fallen short of her higher mark. Same rating as last time, but we are trying her back slightly in trip - we think that will help. Ground is fine too. The Bowen horse looks the one to beat - we'd have place claims though at a track she runs well at.

Guguss Collonges 
Thu 13th May 2021
19:05, Fontwell Park

Unseated early on last time at Market Rasen so that didn't tell us much. None the worse for that though and had 50 days to get over it. Cheekpieces are on this time to help him focus and settle and Josh takes over again in the saddle. Doesn't look a great race so if his jumping holds out not without a chance of being involved.

What A Glance 
Thu 13th May 2021
19:05, Fontwell Park

Windy was a bit disappointing last time out at Huntingdon, but it was a conditional jockeys' race which did get a bit messy at times causing him to go wide. He had shown reasonable form previous to that, he has been a work in progress as he can be very keen and he needed to learn to relax. Seems wel at home and hopefully he can get back on track today in a race he'd have e/w claims in.
Animal 
Thu 13th May 2021
19:05, Fontwell Park

Our better chance on the day. Has started to relax more in his races and the rain will certainly help his chance. Will also like the drop back in trip and returns here 3lbs lower than last time. Fit and well, so would have an each-way chance here.

Mukha Magic 
Thu 13th May 2021
18:40, Newmarket

Down the field last time at Lingfield (5th) - well back. Needs to improve on that and hard to get too excited until we see a return to form on the track. The pluses are George can take off 3lbs more and the drop back to 1m4f will suit, but overall needs to show more of old sparkle.

Lightning Bug 
Thu 13th May 2021
17:55, Fontwell Park

Yet to win from 11 starts and needs to show more after being pulled up at Taunton last time. Is also running from out of the handicap here today so would need to find a lot of improvement.

Gidwa 
Thu 13th May 2021
17:30, Newmarket

He has been showing all the right signs at home and is now ready to start his racing career off. This looks a tough ask to win here with Desert Dreamer and General Panic both holding good form. I am hopeful of a nice run first up. Dane O’Neill takes the ride.

Chapmanshype    WINNER! winner

Another TQ View winner this week!


Thu 13th May 2021
17:20, Fontwell Park

Chapmanshype has an incredible win: run strike rate, having won 7 of his 15 career starts.  He is 4 from 4 at Fontwell, and has progressed through the handicapping ranks. However, off a mark of 144, he has little room manoeuvre over hurdles, and so sending him novice chasing looks the obvious route to take. He jumps well at home but is bound to be a bit novicey on this chase debut, so a clear round is plan A, and the mare will be tough to beat with her sex allowance, but we'll give it our best shot.

Neff 
Thu 13th May 2021
17:20, Fontwell Park

Only two other rivals but on these terms - we are rated 31lbs and 30lbs behind the two others. Oh and we also have to give 7lbs to the Nicholls horse (sex allowance)! Anyway, that aside, this is Neff's chasing debut here today. Has schooled well and starting at a track he's won over hurdles at should help. Any rain is fine, but really looking at the race just hoping for a solid and safe first run over fences and go from there. 

Trixie Waterbury    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second at 18/1.


Thu 13th May 2021
16:55, Salisbury

Didn't quite see out the mile last time at Lingfield so the drop back to 7f - a trip she's won twice over - will suit. Only second run on the turf here and likely to be facing softer ground here, which is a bit of an unknown. But the horse is well and the apprentice riding helps by claiming a handy 3lbs. Very open race though, with many chances so e/w chance, but being an apprentice contest probably not a race to get too involved in.

Parikarma 
Thu 13th May 2021
16:55, Salisbury

She ran well on a reappearance last start and looks in good form at home. This looks a nice option for her with the Richard Hannon-trained runner the one to fear in the market. She has drawn 10 and Alex Jary takes the ride. 

Sashenka    WINNER! winner

Only just failed to get up.


Thu 13th May 2021
16:50, York

Was a bit frustrating over hurdles earlier this year with three seconds. Back on the level last time at Doncaster though and travelled well to run a fair second to an improving stayer - Ben Lilly. Similar race here and off the same mark - won't mind the ground and Hollie Doyle been booked to ride. We are also 6lbs better off with Ben Lilly this time, so based on that must have an e/w chance.

 

Megamegawhitething 
Thu 13th May 2021
16:45, Fontwell Park

Megamegawhitething arrived with us having had two years off the track. He is still quite green and immature, and ran like that on hurdling debut, when showing a glimmer of promise. Providing he can progress and improve with each outing, then he can win a small race at some point this summer, but this looks a bit beyond him.

Naturally High 
Thu 13th May 2021
16:45, Fontwell Park

Unseated at Newbury on debut run for us and debut run in this country. Former Listed winner in France though so has ability. Had plenty of time (7 weeks) to get over that last run and has schooled well at home since. The Henderson and Twiston-Davies runners are likely to be fighting this out, but hopeful of an improved run and would have e/w claims.

Justicialism 
Thu 13th May 2021
15:55, Salisbury

Was very disappointing last time out but had excuses. He is a very laid back horse so we have put some visors on just to sharpen him up. He will love the ground and could run better than his price. Step up in trip will suit too.

Will love the soft ground but looks more of a handicap type when upped in trip. He is in good form though.

Alaskan Lady 
Wed 12th May 2021
20:20, Bath
DEC Odds: 32(Betfair Exc)

Hinted at ability on the track last season on her second start and it all went wrong third time out. She has grown over the winter and should be competitive now in handicap company for the first time in what looks an open-looking race.

Night Eagle    WINNER! winner

Top call from Gary and another TQ View winner.


Wed 12th May 2021
19:20, Bath
DEC Odds: 4.3(Betfair Exc)

Ran well on his first run back after being gelded last time at Goodwood (5th). That also came off a 205-day break so can be expected to have improved for that run and that's also showing in his homework since. Dropped a pound form that last run helps too and is a slight drop in grade from a 0-70 to a 0-55. Jockey Hector Crouch, who takes over, has ridden the horse in the past too. Several similar chances, when looking at the others, but hopeful he'd not be far away.

Harrier Hawk 
Wed 12th May 2021
19:20, Bath
DEC Odds: 16.5(Betfair Exc)

She has been consistent in handicaps without winning and this looked the logical next starting place for her. The horse to beat looks to be Nordic Dash who hit the line well last start in a maiden and will appreciate the step up in trip on handicap debut. Harrier Hawk has been in good form at home and Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Mr Curiosity    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this week.


Wed 12th May 2021
18:50, Bath
DEC Odds: 4.8(Betfair Exc)

Ran well on debut at a track that wouldn’t have suited much. Bath should suit him much better and he will definitely have improved for his race. He should run well today.

Harmonious 
Wed 12th May 2021
16:50, York
DEC Odds: 130(Betfair Exc)

Still to win a race, but only had 8 career runs. Ran well at Wolverhampton on the AW last time out over this trip and returns to the turf on just a 3lb higher mark. That's offset with Jonathan's 5lb claim, but looks a tough race with plenty of chances so be a shock if we are troubling the judge, but the horse is well and could still outrun his odds.  

Sociologist 
Wed 12th May 2021
16:50, York
DEC Odds: 12(Betfair Exc)

Always shown potential, but has got his act together this season so far with two nice wins recently at Southwell and Thirsk. The last of those came by 6 lengths in a similar race to this and is only 5lbs higher here. Any rain would be fine too and the long York straight should suit as he does stay further than this too. More on his plate in what is a much deeper race than last time, but seems to have come out of that last race well and another bold bid on the cards - of our two in the race looks the more likely.

Serenisa 
Wed 12th May 2021
16:00, Worcester
DEC Odds: 25(Betfair Exc)

Serenisa has shown a degree of promise in a bumper and a brace of novice hurdles, but hasn't really finished a race out well yet.  Back from a break, and on the back of a wind operation, I'd like to think she could find some form over the summer months, but that’s likely to be in a low grade handicap somewhere.  I'd like to see her finish her race out better back over 2m, but I'm sure she'll want a step up in trip at some point.

Gyllen 
Wed 12th May 2021
15:20, Newton Abbot

Zargun    WINNER! winner

Great run at 125/1 from Scott's horse.


Wed 12th May 2021
14:10, York
DEC Odds: 230(Betfair Exc)

German-bred horse that has some fair form for his previous trainer in his homeland - second in a G3 over 6f. Was down the field on debut for us at Lingfield back in March though - we feel he'll be better back on the turf though as 27 of his 29 races have been on the grass. Seems to have also improved at home for that last run so no shock to see a better showing here today.

Celestial Gayle 
Wed 12th May 2021
14:00, Worcester
DEC Odds: 5.2(Betfair Exc)

Goes well enough at home to suggest she can be competitive in a bumper. Attractive long-striding athletic filly and hopefully she can reach the frame here. Impossible to know what we are up against however. Wants good ground ideally.

Gris Doudairies 
Wed 12th May 2021
14:00, Worcester
DEC Odds: 22(Betfair Exc)

Only had the one career run and that came back in Oct 19 for Chirstian Williams (NH Flat race). So first run for us and first outing for a long time - therefore, can be expected to improve for this but nice to get going with him. Probably not a race to get too involed in with a lot of lightly-raced and unraced sorts that could be anything. So, just looking for a nice run back and go from there.

Diamond Brig 
Wed 12th May 2021
13:30, Worcester
DEC Odds: 19.5(Betfair Exc)

Had a break after a few poor runs and returns on only a 2lb higher mark than last win back in November. The cheekpieces should help (first time) and has gone well fresh in the past. Better ground will suit but overall does have a bit to prove at the moment so just a small e/w chance.

Robins Field 
Wed 12th May 2021
13:15, Newton Abbot

Scale Force 
Tue 11th May 2021
19:55, Wetherby

Been a busy horse on the AW over the winter and the last few months. Found it hard getting on terms last time at Chelmsford in a better race, but the drop in grade here will suit. Has a bit to prove on the grass though - is yet to win and 0-from-10 - but returns to the grass on a 11lb lower mark than on the AW so every chance based on that. Only niggle is that the horse has had a busy time, so we'll see after this if that's the case and might need a break after this if running below-par again.

Is very talented but not straightforward. She seems to run we look fresh so today might be the day to catch her. 10 furlongs on soft ground suits. If she can start well and get a decent position then she will go close.

Red Glory    WINNER! winner

Led from the front and another TQ View win too!


Tue 11th May 2021
16:15, Beverley

He showed much more promise last start when running home late to finish 5th at Nottingham. This looks a nice
option for him with the horse to beat looking to be the Mark Johnston trained runner. He is drawn well in six and Mark Crehan takes the ride.

Teruntum Star    WINNER! winner

Top call from Dave.


Tue 11th May 2021
14:45, Beverley

CD winner that wasn't disgraced here last time when 7th here last time out - only beaten around 5 lengths. Down another 4lbs here helps and is certainly more than well-handicapped on old form. Not without an e/w chance with the ground fine.

Twycross Warrior 
Mon 10th May 2021
20:20, Southwell

Pleasing run last time after a long time off when second at Warwick - ran well for much of the way and just got a bit tired in the closing stages. Seems well at home since and if repeating that we would be hopeful of a place - anything else a bonus.

Phoebus Lescribaa    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Robin's horse.


Mon 10th May 2021
20:20, Southwell

Second runner in this race for us. First run for a good while (193 days), and he usually needs it first time out so really just nice to get going with the horse again and looking for a solid return run to build on.

Look Ahead 
Mon 10th May 2021
19:30, Windsor

Look Ahead has her first visit to the races and will learn plenty from the experience, probably the type for handicaps down the line.

Lawmans Blis 
Mon 10th May 2021
19:30, Windsor

Third career run here today and will get a mark after this - will be more competitive once he does and is able to run in handicaps.

The Whipmaster    WINNER! winner

Another nice win from Gary's horse.


Mon 10th May 2021
19:00, Windsor

Gutsy winner at Brighton last time - giving the jockey his first career win. Ryan takes over in the saddle this time though and is 6lbs higher, but the horse has only raced five times and we feel now he's got the hang of things last time can have more in the locker here. Trip and track are fine and should not be far away - looks our best chance of getting something on the day in what looks a very open race though.

Tara Iti 
Mon 10th May 2021
19:00, Windsor

He was disappointing last start at Newcastle and we feel he doesn’t show his best form on the all weather and a return to the turf on soft ground should hopefully show his best form again. It is a competitive race and the favourite looks to be the Gary Moore trained runner. He has drawn well in four and Andrea Atzeni takes the ride.

Imperial Hope 
Mon 10th May 2021
18:50, Southwell

Impy was impressive in his first race for us, a bumper at Doncaster, he ran way too keen and I didn’t imagine he would get home but obviously he did. He had won a point-to-point before joining me so his schooling has always been good, hopefully he won’t be as strong today but if he is at least the hurdles give him something to think about. Imperial Hope is a sweet horse who is good to ride at home but he can be a bit strong on the gallops. Looks to have the Longsdon horse to beat, but should have a decent chance.
Rays The One 
Mon 10th May 2021
17:15, Lingfield

Run only average races over hurdles of late, so we are mixing things up here by returning to the flat. Yet to win a race of any sort but only had 8 runs. Rated 2lbs lower than when last seen on the level and Rhys can claim 5lbs here so that helps. Is also first run here at Lingfield on their AW surface - small e/w chance, but the CD winners - French Minstrel and Thorn - seem in good form and might be hard to topple.

Viaduct    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second for Scott and the team.


Mon 10th May 2021
17:15, Lingfield

Hard to fancy until we see signs of better on the track - well back over this CD last time out but we are 3lbs better off here and Jonathan Fisher can claim a handy 5lbs. Hard to see us beating the in-form French Minstrel, but hopeful of a better run than last time.

Sherpa Trail 
Mon 10th May 2021
17:15, Lingfield

Not shown much yet for us but is starting to come together and more likely to be suited by longer distances than shorter. Needs to get his confidence and get involved before he could be recommended in all probability.

Psyche 
Mon 10th May 2021
16:25, Windsor

Came to us from the Jessie Harrington yard in Ireland. Has the one win to his name on the AW at Dundalk (1m). We'll find out more about the horse here but 1m2f looks a good place to start him off and that should give us a benchmark if he'll want further or shorter in the future. The horse is well though and should be winning races over here in time.

 

Bassarabad 
Mon 10th May 2021
16:20, Ffos Las

Pulled up last time at Wetherby back in Feb. Had a break since and looking well handicapped with last win coming off 4lbs higher. But does need to put several poor runs behind him and hard to get too excited until we see more of a return to form on the track.

The Warrior 
Mon 10th May 2021
16:10, Lingfield

Risky customer that is more than capable of winning a race like this but has his own mind about the game these days. If in the mood can certainly win this and draw 7 okay. Will need to break better than last time though and will need the breaks in-running with his hold-up style. Each-way chance though, but - as mentioned - not one to totally trust.

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner

Another placed run on the day for Simon.


Mon 10th May 2021
16:10, Lingfield

Back to a good mark and has run well here the last twice in slightly stronger company. Reunited with his more regular and successful rider and not badly drawn so has an obvious chance.

Triangle Rock 
Mon 10th May 2021
15:50, Ffos Las

Unseated last time at Chepstow but was in midfield at the time. Only second run back after a wind op too, but need to see more on the track before being confident.

Headley George 
Mon 10th May 2021
15:35, Lingfield

Looked a bit unlucky in running last time here but has had a good spell in this grade recently. Looks to have a good chance if still in the same form and the race goes right for him.

Dove Divine 
Mon 10th May 2021
15:35, Lingfield

Down the field here last time but actually wasn't beaten far that day and off a 2lbs lower mark hopeful of a better run in this easier 0-55 race. Adam Kirby a bonus in the saddle too and the horse seem to have improved from that last run too. Draw 10 not great, but should be okay over this 1m2f trip - would have an e/w chance.

Little Awkward 
Mon 10th May 2021
15:15, Ffos Las

March, as he's known at home, won a bumper and a novice hurdle last season and he was beaten by a nice type on his last outing at Fontwell. He will go novice chasing in the autumn but I wanted to give him one more run before he goes out to grass just for experience. March is a good looking, tall horse who is still a little bit unfurnished so a good summer on his back should improve him for next season. He’s a pretty straightforward horse to deal with but he’s easily bored.
Spectator 
Mon 10th May 2021
15:15, Ffos Las

Last seen winning at Chepstow back in October. Has been given a break since but is a horse that likes to run fresh. More on his plate here off a 7lbs higher mark but has a good overall record over hurdles with 10 top three places in from his 16 runs. Therefore, would have a fair e/w chance here.

Theligny 
Mon 10th May 2021
14:40, Ffos Las

Has some fair form to his name but has been below-par of late - We are returning him to Ffos Las though as a past CD winner here and heads here rated 5lbs lower than his last win (Jan 20). Acts on any ground so no issues there and has run well off a small break in the past. Does need to bounce back but is well at home and hoping the return to this track will help.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Mon 10th May 2021
14:05, Ffos Las

Second runner in this race for us - didn't run too badly last time at Taunton when 5th of 10. Stayed on well that day and with that being his first run back since a wind op then we are hopeful he'll improve for it too. 3lbs lower help and in an open race would have a small e/w chance.

Cape Robin 
Mon 10th May 2021
14:05, Ffos Las

Former winning Pointer that is still finding his feet under rules. Only had 4 career runs so has time on his side. Is 5lbs lower this time and also Charlie can claim a handy 5lbs too, so much better off. We also feel the drop back to 2m will help so be delighted with a step in the right direction here.

Roca Magica 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:50, Lingfield

She was keen last start and never got home and we have decided to send her back to the all weather and drop her back in drip. Vitesse Du Son is the horse to beat on paper. Roca Magica has drawn 10 and Mark Crehan takes the ride.

Mungos Quest    WINNER! winner

Improved effort from Simon's horse.


Mon 10th May 2021
13:50, Lingfield

Low grade affair and he needs to get his confidence but has a small amount of ability. Well drawn here and might run better than odds suggest if the race goes smoothly for him.

Fortissimo 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:50, Lingfield

Third run for the yard after coming from the Mark Johnston team. Hasn't shown much for us in those races but down another 3lbs from his last run helps. Needs to show more and probably best watched until we see more on the track but hoping top jockey, Tom Marquand, can work some magic.

Duke Of Firenze 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:40, Catterick

110th career run here today and still loving his racing at the age of 12. Close third at Epsom last time out under Laura Pearson, who rides and claims 5lbs again here. Softer ground is okay and in this slight drop in grade should have a leading chance from a nice draw in 4 too.

A Pint Of Bear    WINNER! winner

Great win for Scott's horse.


Mon 10th May 2021
13:40, Catterick

Won twice on the AW at Southwell, but is yet to record a success since going handicapping. Also first run on the turf here today, but the soft ground will be fine and the drop back to 5f is also a plus with both career wins coming over the minimum trip. Probably likely to fine a few too good, but the horse is well and we feel will run better than odds suggest.

Bembridge    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Oliver.


Mon 10th May 2021
13:30, Ffos Las

Bembridge was unlucky to be beaten last time out at Fontwell (2nd) when another horse bailed him at the start costing him about ten lengths out of the gate. I was going to finish him for the season after that run but because the weather has been so cold I couldn’t turn him away, we kept him going and he’s been in such good form at home I decided to run him again if we got any safe ground. Bembridge isn’t the brightest but I do think the penny has finally dropped and he’s been much sharper at home and in his schooling. If building on that last run should be thereabouts.
Chozen 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:30, Ffos Las

Pulled up last time at Wetherby but need the run back after almost a year out. Back over hurdles here too and returns on an 8lb lower mark than over fences. Ground is okay too, but a bit of a fact-finding mission here regarding the trip - stepping up to 2m4f from 2m.

Zulu Girl 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:15, Lingfield

Zulu Girl made a great start to life with the team here at Sarsen Farm when second first time out, slightly tougher race after being raised by the handicapper but well drawn and should put up another good effort.

Prince Rock    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Mon 10th May 2021
13:15, Lingfield

Good record round here and probably better suited to a mile these days than shorter. Top rider knows him well and although he is on a career high mark he can never be discounted so could go well at a big price.

Millicent 
Mon 10th May 2021
13:15, Lingfield

4lbs lower than last run when down the field at Kempton last month. Has come on for that run though as it came off a break and Rhys also claims 5lbs here, so actually 9lbs lower than last time. Has run well here at Lingfield in her two previous runs and is still lightly-raced. Will have more to come and we expect better here today, but the likes of Zulu Girl and Mykonos St John head here in better form and look the obvious ones.

Colonial Empire 
Sun 9th May 2021
16:50, Ludlow

Delighted with his debut win at Exeter last month. Has come out of that race well and with that experience will hopefully go well again here. Slight drop in trip is fine as has to carry a penalty for that win and give 7lbs away to most of the others. But a nice horse that we like and even though it's never easy winning more than won NH Flat race, he's in good order and should not be far away. Regardless a nice horse to watch once going hurdling too.

West Lake 
Sun 9th May 2021
16:38, Plumpton

11 year-old former winning Pointer, but is yet to get off the last under rules. In his defence has only had six runs under rules though. Plugged on well to be third here two runs back – but was still well back off the winner that day. Track suits and 2lbs lower than last time helps a bit. Only 10st to carry too, and another average race gives the horse a small squeak, but is also racing 2lbs out of the handicap as well.

Iconic Muddle 
Sun 9th May 2021
15:08, Plumpton

Looks one of our better chances on the day. Ran well at Huntingdon on his return last month – going down by only ¾ of a length. That was only his second run over fences so still learning, but being a course winner here at Plumpton over hurdles we feel that will help. The ground will be perfect (even if the rain comes as handles all ground) and even though he’s up 4lbs for that last run seems to have come on well at home and should be going close.

Landsman    WINNER! winner

Only went down a head.


Sun 9th May 2021
14:50, Ludlow

Lost his way a bit at the end of last year on the flat and over hurdles. Is back over fences here today on only his third start over the bigger obstacles. But not been out since January so likely to need the run. Bit of fact-finding mission too regarding the trip as up to 3m for the first time, but will gain more experience over fences here and the ground is fine.

King Cool 
Sun 9th May 2021
14:38, Plumpton

Has lost his way a bit recently so a bit to answer. The pluses are he’s down another 2lbs from last time and is a past course winner here at Plumpton. Good ground is fine and on a going day certainly capable in a race like this, but with just one win from this last 17 runs then not one to rely on too much and does need to bounce back from a few average efforts. Small e/w chance.

Fitz Well 
Sun 9th May 2021
14:20, Ludlow

Pulled up the last twice so needs to improve on those runs. Is 6lbs lower than last time though and this is only his second run in a handicap. The slightly better ground will help and we are also putting the cheekpieces on to help him settle and Lorcan takes off a handy 3lbs. The Evans Williams horse looks the likely winner, but we could run into a place - anything else a plus.

Jalwan 
Sun 9th May 2021
13:35, Plumpton

Fair flat performer but has been campaigned over hurdles since coming to us from the John Butler yard. Pulled up on debut at Kempton but burst a blood vessel that day so had an excuse. Quicker ground will suit as was a bit soft that last day and had plenty of time to get over that last race – 4 months. Hopeful of better today in what doesn't look the best of races and no surprise to see him in the shake-up.

Lucky Beggar    WINNER! winner

Great win for this old boy!


Sat 8th May 2021
20:35, Thirsk

Not getting any younger at 11, but is still enjoy his racing. Ran well last time when third at Pontefract - no chance that day with the first two but is down in grade here and dropped 2lbs too. Also returns to Thirsk as a CD winner. Any rain - if it comes - will suit and is in great order. Certainly capable of going well in a race like this.

Gris Doudairies 
Sat 8th May 2021
20:20, Warwick

Only had the one career run and that came back in Oct 19 for Chirstian Williams (NH Flat race). So first run for us and first outing for a long time - therefore, can be expected to improve for this but nice to get going with him.

Thistle Do Nicely 
Sat 8th May 2021
19:20, Warwick

Thistle Do Nicely is a lovely horse, who had a cracking novice hurdling season which finished with him being 2nd at Cheltenham, beaten only 3 lengths by Dashel Drasher. He was injured after one novice chase the following season, and after a long time off the track he wasn't disgraced at the Aintree Festival where he raced extremely wide throughout. He will have improved for that run both mentally and physically and he's potentially very well treated here off a mark 8lbs below his Cheltenham run. Wouldn't want too much rain to fall, but he goes there with a huge each way chance.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Powered home for an easy 6 length win.


Sat 8th May 2021
19:05, Thirsk

Top win for this consistent horse last time on the AW at Southwell. Back on the turf today on just a 3lb higher mark and should have every chance again of being in the mix. Ground is fine and has run well at the track before too (4th). Hopeful of another solid e/w run.

Rosy World 
Sat 8th May 2021
18:20, Warwick

Won gamely over course and distance on Monday in very soft conditions. Has to carry a 7lb penalty and this does look more competitive, but an each-way chance again provided this hasn't some too soon as we know she can handle the going.

Catesby 
Sat 8th May 2021
18:05, Thirsk

Shown promise in his three runs so far, but into a handicap for the first time today and that will help. A nice draw in 3 and Jonathan can claim a handy 5lbs too. Also first run on the grass today, but the track and ground will be fine. Looks competitive so e/w chance, but we'll know a bit more were we are after this with his mark.

Album 
Sat 8th May 2021
16:50, Ascot

Came to us from the Stuart Williams yard so first run for the stable here today. Has had plenty of experience with 14 runs and 3 wins so a nice recruit for us. We'll know more where we are after this as not had the horse long and is also running off a career-high mark here. But is well at home and has won with cut in the ground before so the recent rain isn't a worry.

Spanish Mane 
Sat 8th May 2021
16:40, Nottingham

Spanish Mane has come on for her latest run and needed the race, she is in good form at home and should run well but wouldn’t want the forecast rain and probably won’t run if the ground turned soft.

Chiefofchiefs 
Sat 8th May 2021
15:40, Ascot

Chiefofchiefs loves Ascot and loves a big field. Rain shouldn’t prove a problem at all as he goes on any ground. He should go well today and looking forward to a big run.

Vanity Affair    WINNER! winner

Great winner for the in-form Charlie Fellowes yard.


Sat 8th May 2021
15:30, Nottingham

Vanity Affair will also love every drop of rain. He is progressing very nicely and should run well again. This does, however, looks like quite a competitive race for the grade.

Beat The Breeze 
Sat 8th May 2021
14:20, Nottingham

Up in class but has been waiting for soft ground staying races and conditions should suit therefore. Seems in great shape and stays well so could go well at a big price.

Perfect Inch

Mukha Magic 
Sat 8th May 2021
13:40, Lingfield

Got a string of bronze medals at the moment so needs to find a bit more. Back on the turf here and been freshened up with a few months off and seems very well at home. Trip and ground are fine and should run his race with a small e/w chance, but just can't help feeling he's in the handicapper's grip at the moment.

Rafiot 
Sat 8th May 2021
13:40, Lingfield

Back from a 3-month break and seems well at home. Didn’t see out the longer trip last time at Southwell (2m) so the drop back to 1m5f here will help. Won over 1m4f in the winter on the AW, but returns to the turf on an 8lb higher mark. Overnight rain should be fine - has won on good-to-soft. Should be more to come from him and happy to have Jason Watson riding. Each-way.

Jersey Wonder 
Sat 8th May 2021
13:25, Haydock

Jersey Wonder has thoroughly enjoyed his transition from flat to hurdling improving with each race and winning his last two in great style. Up another 8lbs here today. He was a decent stayer on the flat for Jamie Osborne so it seemed obvious that he would improve for a step up to three miles last time out at Exeter but until you run you don’t know for certain that will be the case, obviously it did suit him and he looked pretty impressive that day. This is a big step up in grade but it seemed the perfect time to try whilst he’s still at the right end of the handicap,he’s been in very good form since his last race and I’m happy with him. My only slight concern would be that his best form on the flat was on good ground, he finished third at Fontwell in softish conditions but if it came up very soft on watered ground that might be a concern, let’s hope they don’t get as much rain as is forecast. If not too soft should have another great chance in a very open and competitive contest.
Cable Guy 
Sat 8th May 2021
13:15, Nottingham

Cable Guy might out run his odds. He will love any rain that comes and although he won’t be knocked around he could easily run into a place if things fall right.

Heers Sadie 
Sat 8th May 2021
13:15, Nottingham

Heer’s Sadie is a filly we like a lot for the future, she will have a handicap mark after this run and will be well worth following in handicaps.

Saramenha 
Fri 7th May 2021
19:00, Nottingham

Saramenha has been bought to go juvenile hurdling and she jumps super.....but the first juvenile hurdle isn't until 5th June, so we thought we'd have a spin on the flat first.  I doubt she is good enough to have a chance here, but it'll give her a good gallop and she'll be eligible for a handicap mark after this run, and we could think about running her on the flat in the winter after a summer of jumping.

Jubilee Bridge 
Fri 7th May 2021
19:00, Nottingham

Has improved leaps and bounds recently and is now very much ready for her debut. A mile at Nottingham works nicely and I would expect her to make an encouraging debut. She will improve for the run also though.

Cabrini 
Fri 7th May 2021
19:00, Nottingham

Engrave 
Fri 7th May 2021
18:30, Nottingham

Engrave has been a star and very consistent through the Winter, now back on turf and quite unexposed on grass, the easy ground will suit and she has a good draw, the only negative is that she has to give plenty of weight away to the three year olds but she is well so hopeful of a good run again.

Shifting Gold 
Fri 7th May 2021
18:30, Nottingham

Shifting Gold is having her first run for the yard, she has settled in well since we bought her and seems suited by softer conditions, Sam takes off 7lbs and she seems very straightforward, we will learn more after this run but hope she runs well.

Rolfe Rembrandt 
Fri 7th May 2021
16:05, Ascot

A rare sprinter for us - did well last season to rise up the ranks with some decent runs and won well at Newbury last August. Highly-tried last time at Ayr in a Listed race but had a nice break since over the winter and a wind op during that time too. Did have a habit a few times last season of being slowly away, but Hollie Doyle a bonus in the saddle to help with that. Nice to get going with him again and well at home - small e/w chance, but the lesser exposed Crimson Sand looks the one to beat.

Alternative Fact 
Fri 7th May 2021
15:45, Chester

He has been in good form at home and we have been waiting for the ground to ease which we look to have here at Chester. It is a nice option for him and the horse to beat on paper looks to be the Andrew Balding trained Fox Tal who has previous Group One form and is recently gelded. Alternative Fact has drawn well in four and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

Anti Cool 
Fri 7th May 2021
15:35, Market Rasen

Old timer at 12, but still not the oldest in this race! CD winner here at the track helps and also down another 4lbs from last run. Got a bit outpaced last time over a shorter trip so the step back up to 2m5f will help and won't mind the ground. But just get done by some younger legs, but small chance of hitting the frame at a venue he likes.

Counteract 
Fri 7th May 2021
15:35, Market Rasen

Won twice earlier this season and last time the race probably came a bit too soon - just 6 days - after his last. Had a break since (3 weeks) and the drop back in trip here today will help as didn't quite see out the 3m at Bangor last time. Good ground is fine and despite being 7lbs higher than his last win, is still only 6 years-old and we feel there is more to come from him. Should have every chance against a lot of much older horses.

Sands Cove    WINNER! winner

Old timer ran a cracker for the Evans yard.


Fri 7th May 2021
15:35, Market Rasen

The old timer came back with a solid run last time after a long lay-off. Entitled to come on for the run too, so would have an e/w chance here in what looks affair.

Beauty Choice 
Fri 7th May 2021
15:30, Ascot

Has been running well over the winter on the all weather. I have freshened him up since and this looks a nice starting point. He will love the track and ground conditions.

Lill Smith 
Fri 7th May 2021
15:05, Market Rasen

Yet to win a race from 16 starts so a bit to prove still - well back on return run at Warwick last month too on first run back from a wind op - 6lbs lower here and hopeful the longer trip will suit but needs to show more on the track with the first-time visor on today - best watched.

Compadre 
Fri 7th May 2021
14:00, Market Rasen

Likes it here at the track and is in good form, so if the rain drops right for him should be thereabouts.

Eve Lodge    WINNER! winner

Looks an exciting prospect for Charlie.


Fri 7th May 2021
13:55, Ascot

Has been working nicely at home and should love the stiff 5. My first 2yr old runner of the year was a disaster but looked worse than he is. Hopefully she can make a decent debut.

Scale Force 
Thu 6th May 2021
19:50, Chelmsford

Only the four runners here so a tight little race, but we should have every chance. Has been in great form on the AW tracks this year and is yet to finish out of the first four from 9 runs in 2021, with 3 wins! Up another pound here for a close second at Southwell last time but remains in good order at home. First run here at Chelmsford for the horse here but we think he'll enjoy it. Another bold bid on the cards, especially if they go a good pace up top as likes to come off the speed.

Blow Your Horn    WINNER! winner

Another TQ View winner this month!


Thu 6th May 2021
18:50, Chelmsford

Won well up at Newcastle last time out and has come out of that race well. Up from 1m4f here to 1m6f but the extra trip should be within range. Bit more needed off 6lbs higher and is taking on a few other in-form rivals, but the horse is well and we feel still improving so another big run expected. 

Global Art 
Thu 6th May 2021
18:20, Chelmsford

He likes it here at Chelmsford and rarely runs a bad race here. This looks a nice spot for him with Artic Vega looking the horse to beat in the market. He has drawn badly in 11 and Mark Crehan takes the ride.

Royal Heart 
Thu 6th May 2021
17:50, Chelmsford

We have given him a little break since his disappointing handicap debut. This looks a nice spot for him and in form apprentice Mark Crehan takes the ride.

Kloud Gate    WINNER! winner

Bounced back to form for the Gary Moore yard.


Thu 6th May 2021
14:55, Huntingdon

A fair bit to answer at the moment. Did well 2-3 years ago but has had his problems in more recent years. Nice to get him back on the track last time at Doncaster in March and ran below par that day. Down 4lbs here and had a small break since, while we are trying the visor for the first time here today too. Certainly well-handicapped on old form (has won off 9lbs higher) and won't mind the quicker ground today, so can't rule out, but does need to have a revival on the track to that sort of level. 

Elisezmoi 
Thu 6th May 2021
14:25, Huntingdon

Been taking a bit of a hold in his races of late and as a result not been getting home. We've been working on getting the horse more settled at home and hoping the tongue-tie, which is on for the first time today, will help to settle him too. Dropped another 3lbs helps and certainly a bit better than what he's shown. We'll have to see if he can calm down a bit during the race - never can really tell until into an actual race - but if so would have e/w claims, but the Peter Bowen runner - Rooster Cogburn - is probably the one to beat.

Strike The Flint 
Thu 6th May 2021
13:55, Huntingdon

Ran a nice race at Taunton last time looking likely to make the frame apart from a bad mistake two out. Did well to finish where she did after that and down another 4lbs here. Another large field but place claims on her last run.

Vivency 
Wed 5th May 2021
20:10, Kempton Park

Won here two starts back and only a pound higher this time. Dropping back to 6f will be fine and Danny Muscutt, who won on her earlier this year, is back in the saddle. Looks a tight little race, but we are not without a chance at a venue she likes.

Vive De Charnie 
Wed 5th May 2021
19:50, Fontwell Park

Vive De Charnie is a nicely bred individual. She has progressed relatively quickly since arriving with us earlier this year, but she will be green on the track having not been away for a gallop. However, she is ready to run before a holiday, where she will strengthen further, and develop into a smashing mare.

Episode 
Wed 5th May 2021
19:20, Fontwell Park

Won well here two runs back but failed to follow-up here last month. Stepping up in trip here though will suit and Josh takes over in the saddle. Also doesn't look the best of races, with the Alan King horse feared most, but has done well at home since that last run. Up in grade slightly too, but as a result gets in with a lower racing weight and that will help. Should not be far away.

Quiet Penny    WINNER! winner

Another top winner for the in-form Snowden yard.


Wed 5th May 2021
19:20, Fontwell Park

Quiet Penny had been disappointing on winter ground, but showed a bit of promise on chasing debut on better ground at Warwick the last day. This doesn't look that strong a race, and providing the rain stays away, she should have a chance of improving further.

Distingo 
Wed 5th May 2021
18:50, Fontwell Park

Alrightjack    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Jamie's horse.


Wed 5th May 2021
18:50, Fontwell Park

Alrightjack won a bumper around this track, and following a decent novice hurdling season, he was placed in the Grade 3 Silver Trophy at Chepstow. He's slightly lost his way, but back over hurdles, down in class, after a wind operation, I think he should run a big race. He is fit and well and although this is a tight and competitive race, I do think he has a big chance.

Hector Loza 
Wed 5th May 2021
18:40, Kempton Park

Frustrating of late but is now looking well handicapped. Needs to get his confidence back but seems to have retained his ability. Generally not beaten far in recent starts and could get involved if things fall right for him. 

George Scott 
Wed 5th May 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

George Scott has taken a while to come to hand this year but he has really blossomed recently. He looks well in his coat and his work has improved nicely. This looks a decent starting point for the season and Aled is riding well.

Dream Chaser 
Wed 5th May 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

Twenty Twenty 
Wed 5th May 2021
17:50, Fontwell Park

Bit to prove at the moment after some average runs - on a plus we are down another 3lbs here from his last run when 4th at Plumpton. Trying him over a longer trip here today as stayed on well enough last time over 3m, but overall needs to show some revival on the track before being more confident. A few non-runners help, but Schnabel looks the one we've all got to beat.

Mariegold 
Wed 5th May 2021
17:40, Kempton Park

Mariegold is a lovely staying filly who has run two nice races to date. She ran very well at Kempton as a 2yr old so we know she handles the track, and she will stay all day. She should go well.

Uraib 
Wed 5th May 2021
17:40, Kempton Park

She was a bit green last start and looked and ran a lovely race to finish fourth. She has come out of this race well and is in good form at home. It is a competitive race with the John Gosden and William Knight trained runners the horses to beat on paper. She has drawn well in four and Dane O’Neill takes the ride.

Ballydoyle 
Wed 5th May 2021
17:20, Fontwell Park

Has been a bit disappointing in recent runs, but we are trying him up in trip here to 2m5f as been getting a bit outpaced in his races. We feel it will suit but a bit of a fact-finding mission here today. On a plus, has been dropped 3lbs more so if getting the trip each-way claims, but hoping this will open up more chances for the horse.

Howdilyoudo 
Wed 5th May 2021
16:40, Newton Abbot

Howdilyoudo has been placed in 4 of her 5 career starts. She didn't handle the heavy ground through the winter, and so long as the rain stays away here, then she should have a chance again. This big field handicap will be a bit of a culture shock for her as she is still quite 'wet behind the ears' but providing she copes with that, and has a bit of luck in running, then she'll certainly be there at the business end of the race in a first time tongue tie.

Salsoul 
Wed 5th May 2021
15:45, Chester

Former Mark Johnston runner that is having her debut for us. Has settled in well since coming to us and showed a good level of form last year - winning at Chelmsford back in August. Is lightly-raced with only six career runs and looks fairly well handicapped. In good shape at home and a great draw in stall 1 helps as likes to get on with things. Hoping to learn a lot here today, but we feel she's got a fair e/w chance too, from that top draw.

Isle Of Aron    WINNER! winner

Looks a promising sort for Tim.


Tue 4th May 2021
20:20, Southwell

Not shown much so far but only have three runs over hurdles. Did show ability in a few NH Flat races though and this will be his first run in a handicap today. That will help and should be more competitive here today, but overall just be delighted with a solid run and go from there.

Blunder Buss 
Tue 4th May 2021
19:50, Southwell

Second run back here after a wind operation and is 3lbs lower than last time out at Catterick. Is very well-handicapped on old form with sole career win coming off a 30lb higher mark. Still only fourth career run for us so still hopeful there is more to come here from him, with the step up in trip (3m) expected to suit. Overall though we'd just be happy with a nice run back after a few months out and if seeing out the trip will hopefully open up more doors.

Party Planner 
Tue 4th May 2021
19:30, Wolverhampton

Was running over too short a trip last run but ran on well, she has now dropped into this grade and the step up in distance will suit, Holly Doyle a positive booking so we hope she has an e/w chance.

Piranhadrama 
Tue 4th May 2021
19:00, Wolverhampton

Has been disappointing since handicapping, we have swapped blinkers for eyeshields and will ride him differently. Sam knows him and takes off a handy 7lbs so just hoping for a better run.

Envol De La Cour    WINNER! winner

Great call from Scu.


Tue 4th May 2021
18:50, Southwell

Last seen winning at Market Rasen back in November - up 6lbs for that but returns from 6 months off as been waiting for this better ground. Fit and well at home and looking forward to a summer jumping campaign with him. Would have an each-way chance here.

Brummie Boys    WINNER! winner

Battled on well to get back up and lead home a TQ 1-2!


Tue 4th May 2021
18:50, Southwell

Brummie has been a disappointing horse, he has not physically changed since the day I bought him and he’s always looked on the weak side. Last time out we resorted to the blinkers in an attempt to sharpen him up because he’s so lazy in his races, he did a bit too much over three miles that day so I’ve dropped him back by half a mile today. I’m hoping the forecast rain arrives as he prefers some cut in the ground. Brummie will be heading off to the sales at the end of the month, he’s an easy horse to deal with at home and good to ride.
Lord Getaway

Stormingin 
Tue 4th May 2021
16:15, Lingfield

Ran a cracker at Kempton last time out, when a close second at 50/1. Up just 2lbs for that so if running to that form again should have another decent e/w chance. The slight step up in trip from last time is fine and jockey Anna Gibson, who can claim a handy 7lbs, has ridden the horse a few times before.

Reckon Im Hot 
Tue 4th May 2021
15:40, Lingfield

More needed based on debut run at Newbury when down the field - but very much a work in progress horse and is still learning his trade. Rhys helps by taking off 5lbs again (rode him last time too). Will be once step nearer to getting a handicap mark here today.

Adaay In Asia    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Harry's horse.


Tue 4th May 2021
15:40, Lingfield

Nice filly but first day at the office for her today so like a lot of mine will improve for the experience. But shows up well at home and has the pace to cope with this 5f - be happy with a solid run and go from there.

Buckos Boy    WINNER! winner

Top call from the in-form Jamie Snowden yard.


Tue 4th May 2021
15:20, Fakenham

Bucko's Boy won his bumper in taking fashion in the autumn and ran with credit under a penalty.  He has shown he can take higher order over hurdles, but has come to grief at the end of his two starts over hurdles when in all likelihood he would have been 2nd on both occasions.  We have done lots of work with his jumping and the step up in trip should allow him to find things easier here too.  The favourite doesn't set a daunting task, and if we can iron out the late mistakes then he should have a decent chance of upsetting the favourite.

Nobel Leader 
Tue 4th May 2021

Ar Mest    WINNER! winner

Easy winner and another TQ View winner this month too.


Tue 4th May 2021
14:10, Fakenham

Only three rivals to take on here and really only two should have a chance against us. Ar Mest is in good form though and looks to have a leading chance here after a fair second at tFontwell last time out (over fences). The winner that day looks a nice sort, who won again only yesterday to frank that form - so wasn't disgraced to be runner-up. The drop back a few furlongs will also help here and returns to hurdles too. We are also putting the cheekpieces on for the first time to keep him focused and being dropped into a Selling Handicap will also help. Hopefully he's the one to beat.

Subliminal 
Tue 4th May 2021
12:30, Lingfield

Great record at this track but this is a significant step up in grade over a shorter trip than usual. Seems in good shape and top jockey booked so could go well at a big price and at least knows his way round.

Rosy World    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Suzy.


Mon 3rd May 2021
18:00, Warwick

Had two runs after a long time off and will have stripped fitter now. Suited to very soft conditions which she should get by her race and could run into a place.

In The Genes 
Mon 3rd May 2021
17:21, Windsor

She showed a marked improvement last start with first time blinkers on and we are hoping this may be the making of her. This looks a nice spot for her with the horse to beat looking to be the Brian Ellison trained runner. The soft ground we are hoping will be to her liking and Oisin Murphy takes the ride.

Darebin 
Mon 3rd May 2021
17:00, Warwick

Won three runs back at Sandown but was highly-tried in a better race after that since and kept ticking over in a NH Flat race on the AW at Lingfield. Had a nice break since then and returns from 3 months out here into what is more his grade. 5lbs higher than that win back in December but still not badly treated on older form and seems well for the break. Looks a very open race though, and taking on some horses that seem in better form. After 3 months off will also improve for this no matter what, so just looking for a solid return.

Note Bleu 
Mon 3rd May 2021
16:51, Windsor

Won well at Kempton on the AW two runs ago and didn’t get the best of runs last time in a similar race at the same venue – would have finished a lot closer had that not happened. Had a few months off since that run and on the turf for only the third time here today. Track will be fine and gets in here on the turf on a 7lb lower rating than his AW mark. Does look a deeper race than the one he won this year and a bit to prove on the grass, but jockey Tom Queally has won on the horse in the last too and is back in the saddle. Small Each-way chance.

Connetable 
Mon 3rd May 2021
16:25, Warwick

Slipping down the weights and can't be ruled out on his old form. Has his own ideas on racing these days though so not really a betting proposition.

Avantgardist 
Mon 3rd May 2021
15:50, Warwick

Nice winner at Southwell last time out - up 7lbs for that here but had plenty of time to get over that run and is a course winner here at Warwick. Wore the visor for the first time last time and on again today - we hope it has the same impact and if so would have e/w claims.

Cheers Delboy 
Mon 3rd May 2021
15:50, Warwick

Pulled up the last twice so more needed on those runs. Is 5lbs lower here and gets in here on a low weight (10-8) so that helps, but just be delighted with a step in the right direction.

Will be suited to this track and trip - started to relax a bit better in his races, does need a bit of rain to arrive (won't run if good-to-firm still in the description). Place claims here though, probably better back down in trip.

Trixster 
Mon 3rd May 2021
15:35, Kempton Park

Down the field when last seen at Warwick back in Feb - had a small break since and returns on the better ground that he'll like. This is also only his second run back from a wind op so better expected now and is also 3lbs lower than last run. Competitive, but each-way claims.

Touchthesoul 
Mon 3rd May 2021
15:15, Warwick

Has ability at this sort of level but has been a bit frustrating, finishing second the last twice over hurdles. But is making his chase debut here today with this being the plan for a while. Jumps well enough and has schooled well at home. Trip and ground will be okay and if his jumping holds up then not without place claims, but really just be delighted with a solid first run over fences and go from there.

King Carney 
Mon 3rd May 2021
15:06, Windsor

Got things back on track at the end of last year and has really benefited from a holiday. He still has a winter coat but his work has been good and this is a nice starting point, plus the track will suit nicely.

Shackabooah 
Mon 3rd May 2021
14:56, Beverley

Back out again quickly after running down the field at Thirsk on Saturday. Missed the break that day and lost his chance there really so wasn't given a hard time after. Fair draw in 6 today and is certainly capable of better than last time. Will need a better start but if he does then would have every chance with Ben Curtis taking over in the saddle. Each-way.

Ajax Tavern 
Mon 3rd May 2021
13:15, Kempton Park

Only had three runs for us since coming from the Hannon yard. Experienced on the flat, but only having his second run over hurdles here today. Will learn more today and be better once getting a mark.

Vadream 
Sun 2nd May 2021
15:40, Newmarket

It has always been a dream of mine to win the Guineas and today I have my first ever runner in the Newmarket Classic. Vadream has always shown a lot at home and would have been a very good 2 year-old had it not been for an injury this time last year. She won impressively on debut and then was an extremely eyecatching third in the Fred Darling on only her second start. She has to take another big step forward here which she can do if she stays this extra furlong. 

Mirique 
Sun 2nd May 2021
13:00, Salisbury

Tough race but a fair debut at Kempton last month. Is still learning but a nice filly in the making and shows plenty of pace at home. Hoping the stiff 5f here will suit and will take another step to getting a handicap mark here.

The First Hurrah 
Sat 1st May 2021
19:10, Doncaster

The First Hurrah has landed in a very trappy little race. She is working nicely and could easily be in the mix but it’s her first run of the year and she still hasn’t come in her coat. She will improve for this race.

Cassiel 
Sat 1st May 2021
17:35, Doncaster

Cassiel is my first 2yr old runner of the year. He is ready to go but like all of mine he will improve for the race. He will be better over 6 furlongs but will love the ground.

Via Serendipity 
Sat 1st May 2021
17:00, Doncaster

Via Serendipity has always shown lots of speed at home and I have been desperate to try him over 6 furlongs with some headgear. In a lot of his races on turf over further he can run keen and not finished. This is a real experiment today but it’s the right race and worth a go!

No Anxiety    WINNER! winner

Great call from Jamie.


Sat 1st May 2021
16:40, Uttoxeter

No Anxiety is a nicely bred individual, who is totally unexposed. He has shown promise in a bumper and a brace of novice hurdles and makes his handicap debut on his first start over fences on good ground. He looks a proper staying chaser, and could develop into a smart sort with time. Jumps well, stays well, and could run a big race.

Night Eagle 
Sat 1st May 2021
16:20, Goodwood

Showed some promise at the end of last year but is into a handicap here for the first time and that will help. Has also been gelded over the winter and we feel the step up to 1m2f will also bring out more improvement. The Balding, Haggas and Varian runners are respected but we are not without an e/w chance here with some improvement from last time expected.

Soyuz 
Sat 1st May 2021
16:20, Goodwood

Hinted at ability and has plenty of scope to progress but he is still inexperienced and slightly babyish. Probably well handicapped so no complete surprise if he gets involved but sure to come on again.

Verreaux Eagle 
Sat 1st May 2021
15:15, Thirsk

She ran a promising race on her second start to finish second behind what looks like a potential very smart horse. She has come out of this race well and is in good form at home. This looks a nice option for her with the ones to beat looking to be the William Haggas and Ed Walker trained runners. She has drawn wide in 12 and George Wood takes the ride.

Some Day Soon    WINNER! winner

Landed the e/w money.


Sat 1st May 2021
15:05, Uttoxeter

Some Day Soon was a very progressive novice hurdler two summers ago and wasn't beaten far in a couple of Graded races. Covid and an injury put paid to last summer really, but he should have won off 135 at Bangor on debut last summer when a mistake at the last cost him, and I think he is still off mark (139) he can be very competitive off. He is fit and well, and in really good shape for this comeback run, but is sure to be sharper for it. 

French De Guye 
Sat 1st May 2021
14:30, Uttoxeter

Big backward lad who has taken time to come to himself like his elder brothers, who we also trained. Trip likely to be on the sharp side today and fences will be his game later in the year.

Shackabooah 
Sat 1st May 2021
14:10, Thirsk

Has been knocking on the door in recent runs and a repeat of those efforts should see him bang there again today. Up to 1m here today expected to suit having finished his races off well and we've a nice draw in 2 as well.

Mossing 
Sat 1st May 2021
13:55, Uttoxeter

Had her fair share of issues and this is her first run for 2 years so we can only hope for a safe round and a solid midfield run. Anything else is a bonus.

Ivaquestion 
Sat 1st May 2021
13:00, Goodwood

Looks as if he could develop into a nice staying handicapper and not had any real opportunity on turf so far. Trip and track should suit him and reunited with winning rider so could easily go well in a small field like this.

Master The Stars    WINNER! winner

Top run from Ed's horse


Fri 30th Apr 2021
18:20, Newcastle

He is a consistent horse who is always knocking on the door and ran an uncharacteristically poor race last time out. We decided to give him a little break and return to the scene of his last success. It is a competitive race with the lightly raced Godolphin runner the one to beat on paper. Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

John Leeper    WINNER! winner

Stayed on powerfully and looks a useful sort for Ed and the team.


Fri 30th Apr 2021
17:50, Newcastle

He ran a promising race first time out when hitting the line strong to finish fourth at Doncaster. The form has worked out well and this looks the logical step for him. Camelot Tales and First Light will be the horses to beat on form in the market but hopefully he will run a nice race first up this year. Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Goshen 
Fri 30th Apr 2021
17:25, Punchestown

Has travelled over well and no reason why the track here at Punchestown won't suit. Had an in-and-out season so far, but showed what he's capable of at Wincanton back in February when landing the Kingwell Hurdle with ease. Lost all chance in the Champion Hurdle at the Festival by hanging badly right during the race - with that in mind, the track here (being right-handed) should be a saftey net if that happens again. Had a small break since Cheltenham is very well at home and deserves to take his chance in this company again. Goes without saying Honeysuckle is going to be a tough nut to crack for us all - especially giving her 7lbs - but hopefully we can see the real Goshen here today and if so would certainly have e/w claims. Jamie makes the trip over to ride.

Spoonful Of Sugar 
Fri 30th Apr 2021
13:35, Goodwood

Making her debut and our first 2 year-old of the season. She's been very professional and enjoys her work at home and shown enough to be winning races. Whether that will be today depends largely on how good the opposition are.

De Bruyne Horse 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
20:25, Southwell

We gave him a small break after two average runs here. Won here three runs back and is only 2lbs higher though so a return to that form would give him a chance. Fair draw in 6 helps and hopefully he can get more up with the pace, which he likes. Very competitive race though but jockey John Egan booked to ride and we feel he'll suit the horse. Each-way.

Fuwairt 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
20:25, Southwell

Has been a fine campaigner but showing signs now that age is catching up with him. Never run on this surface so we are probably grasping at straws. Leap of faith to back him today but he is fresh after a break so we hope Dougie Costello can work the oracle on him.

Feel The Thunder 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
20:25, Southwell

Only had four career runs and yet to troble the judge. Racing from 3lbs out of the handicap here today too so a fair bit on his plate. Draw 12 adds to the negatives here, so really just be happy with a step forward.

Holiday Magic 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
19:55, Southwell

Great win here in February. Has a few issues to deal with these days but seems in good fettle and should make them all go.

Oud Metha Bridge    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
19:55, Southwell

Has been ready to run for a while but he is ground dependent and with no rain he is having to go back to Southwell. He has run well here before and this is the right grade for him. He is very well at home and runs well fresh so we hope he has an e/w chance.

Blue Beret    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
19:45, Chelmsford

More encouragement last time in a similar race and no reason why she won't continue to progress. Should stay well and just needs things to fall right for her to be involved.

Doonbeg Farmer    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run from this James Evans runner.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
19:45, Chelmsford

Still hasnt learnt to settle and tends to fight his jockey. We've found he has to travel in last to relax which makes life difficult for him. Ellie Mackenzie has her work cut out tomorrow but if he does settle, and she can produce him late he could hit the frame.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Decent run from Gay's horse.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
19:25, Southwell

Course winner here at Southwell. Been running well recently at Newcastle but dropped slightly in grade here today and that will help. Well after 3 weeks off and Luke Morris a plus in the saddle. Should have a fair e/w chance in a very open race, with Ravenscar and Charlie D the main dangers.

Dream Composer 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
18:55, Southwell

Very nice young horse having first run for us. Difficult to assess but showed ability in France as a two year old. But the favourite seems well regarded judging by its early price. We will learn plenty and he will hopefully be competitive and run well.

Driftwood 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
18:25, Southwell

Has ability at this sort of level but has been frustrating after finishing second the last four times and beaten favourite the last twice too. Therefore, a bit to answer on that front but in her defence had a few excuses when getting slightly hampered and missing the break too. Dropping back to 6f here is fine and we've given her a nice break since that last defeat (2 1/2 months) to freshen her up - seems well at home for that. Should be thereabouts, but be more confident when she can get her head in front.

Cool Spirit    WINNER! winner

Powered home - nice call from Dave.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
15:25, Musselburgh

Much better last time out at Southwell - only beaten 3 1/2 lengths - and seems to be running into form. Rated 5lbs lower on the turf than when last seen on the AW and seems well after 3 weeks off. Will love the quick ground and would have a decent e/w chance here from a good draw too.

Ivynator 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
14:00, Lingfield

Run at Nottingham was a disaster! He was too keen and used up too much petrol getting to the front. Drop in trip will suit and he has run well at the track before. No shock to see him bounce back today.

Billhilly    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner this month.


Thu 29th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield

Won well at Nottingham last time and has won at this track in the past too. He is well after that last run and has plenty in his favour here today - should go well again.

The Game Is On 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield

Generally patchy record but capable on his day and no surprise to see him run better than his odds suggest. Seems in great form and has run well here in the past.

Enough Already 
Thu 29th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield

Won here two runs back but ran below par last time at Windsor. Therefore, the return to Lingfield is a plus and even though 2lbs higher than that recent run, we've booked Mark Crehan to take off a handy 5lbs. Drop back to a mile should be fine too - but does stay further than this trip, so we'll be hoping to make use of that. Needs to bounce back but certainly possible at a venue we know he likes.

Dove Divine 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
19:45, Chelmsford

Brazen Point 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
19:25, Brighton

Third run for the yard after coming from the Tim Easterby stable. Took a step forward last time on first run back after being gelded over this 7f trip at Lingfield. Poor race, but gets in here with a light weight (8-8) and a good draw in 3 helps. Should be fine on the track and if building on that last run small place claims, but only 7 runners and two places on offer for the e/w.

Desert Marathon    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Wed 28th Apr 2021
18:50, Brighton

Is consistent but frustrating. I think she will love this track and the ground should be perfect. She is well-drawn and can go close.

Moveonup 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
17:45, Brighton

Yet to win on the turf from 7 runs so a bit to prove on the grass. Is, however, better handicapped on the turf off 54 - won off 62 on the AW back in October. Trip is fine and has run well here at Brighton in the past so we've no track concerns. Another of ours that's been busy over the winter so a break might be on the cards after this too. Still a small e/w chance in a bad race.

Lucky Beggar    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Dave's horse.


Wed 28th Apr 2021
17:30, Pontefract

Continues to run well and better than finishing positions suggest - only beaten 2 1/2 lengths the last day at Wetherby. Down a pound from that run and back in trip slightly to 5f (from 5 1/2f). But up in grade here and taking on a couple of in-form rivals in the Midgley and O'Meara horses, so even though he's in great order might be a tough ask to beat that pair. On a plus, though gets in with a very light weight and Millie can take off a further 5lbs.

Gypsy Lady 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
17:15, Brighton

Nice filly that goes well at home, but debut run here today so will learn a lot. Shows plenty of pace at home and we think the track will suit, but the Archie Watson horse sets a fair standard. We feel a horse to note though once getting going.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
16:45, Brighton

Runner up a few times over further and experiementing here on first try on turf. Has plenty of speed but is a weak finisher over further so it really depends on how she handles the new conditions now tried over the minimum trip.

Dilly Rosa 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
16:35, Wolverhampton

Dilly Rosa came back from her third run quite sick so we have given her time to recover, she has been working nicely at home and with Sam taking off 7lb we hope she runs well because she is too low in the ratings and needs to go up to get into future races.

Outrage 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
16:30, Ascot

Well handicapped on the turf - rated 77 and last win on the AW (Jan 21) was off 83. However, this does look a competitive race, but in good form and certainly worth a go. 

Professor Galant 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
16:05, Wolverhampton

Missed the break a bit last time and over that 5f at Windsor found it hard to get back into the race and then didn't get the best of runs either. Back up to 6f will help and has run well here at Wolves in the past. Dylan Hogan a plus in the saddle and can claim 3lbs too. But a very open race and has had a busy time of it over the winter - we'll see how she goes here but may need a break after this. Small e/w claims.

Bungledupinblue 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
16:05, Wolverhampton

Been running well all winter and loves her racing. If she can hold her form from last time and get a decent passage she has every chance and should be thereabouts at a fair price.

Parikarma 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
15:35, Wolverhampton

She has always shown plenty of ability at home this filly and needs to convert it to the track. This looks a nice spot for her and she has drawn well and we decided to add cheek pieces to try and sharpen her up. Mark Crehan who claims 5lb takes the ride.

Dansing Bear    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Ed's horse.


Wed 28th Apr 2021
15:00, Wolverhampton

He showed some ability in his three maiden outings last year and this looks a nice spot to start him off at. The horse to beat is the Michael Bell trained Sim Card who nearly won on his handicap debut. Mark Crehan who claims 5lb takes the ride.

Prince of Arran 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
14:45, Ascot

Should absolutely love conditions and is in great form - he has been training well at home and looks a picture. The quicker they go the better!

Mutawaarid    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Ed's horse.


Wed 28th Apr 2021
13:50, Wolverhampton

He has been in good order at home ahead of his maiden run and I am hopeful will put in a good performance. The horse to beat on paper is the Roger Varian trained Lankaran who ran a promising third on debut at Yarmouth is the horse to beat. Jason Watson takes the ride.

Fen Tiger 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
13:50, Wolverhampton

Fen Tiger is having his third run and has matured well over the Winter, he will probably want further in future and will be well worth following once handicapped as we do like him.

Paintball Wizard 
Wed 28th Apr 2021
13:15, Wolverhampton

Paintball Wizard has been very lightly raced because he has been very slow maturing, we would have preferred to have run on turf but he was balloted out, so Ross on board in this Amateur Handicap, hopefully he can get on the front end because all he does is gallop, just hoping for a good run to go forward.

Sherpa Trail 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
19:55, Lingfield Park

Readily outpaced in poor mile race here last time and tries a totally new distance. Plenty to learn about him and needs to get his confidence back. 

Mr Curiosity 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
19:25, Lingfield Park

Is a lovely horse who had a few injury problems when he was younger. This is the perfect starting point although a hotter race than I had hoped.

Gentleman At Arms 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
18:50, Lingfield Park

Returns from around 6 months off but is fit and well at home. Did really well last year - ending the campaign with a nice win at Newbury in heavy ground over 1m6f. Up to 2m here, so has that step up in trip to prove, but we feel it will suit and could eke out a bit more improvement too. Is a course winner here too so the track and surface is fine. Trappy little race, but would certainly have a chance if getting the trip.

The Whipmaster    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Gary.


Tue 27th Apr 2021
17:15, Brighton

Three average runs in maidens at the end of last year, but took a step forward once into a handicap back in November. Has been off the track since as been gelded in that time. Returns on the same mark as last time but is expected to be suited by the step up to a mile for the first time here. Looking forward to seeing him in action again and not without place claims, but is an apprentice race so probably not one to go overboard in - our jockey has potential and can claim a handy 7lbs, but it's also only his seventh ride in a race.

Smokey Malone    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third at 11/1.


Tue 27th Apr 2021
17:15, Brighton

Has been improving through the winter - it has been mainly at Southwell but he has grown up and got stronger for his break. We hope that Brighton will suit him as he's a free-running horse and should travel well round here. Dylan Hogan a plus in the saddle as he knows him well and is one of the most experienced apprentices in this race. We would hope he has an e/w chance here.

Savitar 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
17:10, Lingfield Park

Cafe Milano 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
17:10, Lingfield Park

Still a maiden but lots of form here over 10f. Not totally proved that he stays this far but will be ridden patiently and should be staying on well if he gets a nice run round.

Zulu Girl    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Daniel and Claire's horse.


Tue 27th Apr 2021
16:40, Brighton

First run for us - showed enought form for previous trainer to suggest she could win a race of this nature. Steps up in trip, which should be a plus but we will learn a lot more about her today.

Headley George 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
16:35, Lingfield Park

Had a good Winter and ran into one last time. Has run well round here and sure to be involved if all goes well for him from his inside draw. Big scopey horse and there is more to come as he gets stronger.

The Warrior 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
16:35, Lingfield Park

Lady Quickstep 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
15:35, Brighton

Another of ours that's had a good winter on the AW - back on the grass here, but at a track she's won at in the past and with George's 5lb claim that helps. Does, however, need to bounce back from a poor run last time but the return to 6f here will suit and we know the track is fine. Small e/w chance, but looks a tight little race and needs to put last two runs behind her.

Ahdab    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take this for the Ed Dunlop yard.


Tue 27th Apr 2021
15:15, Yarmouth

He has been in good form at home since his last run and we are looking forward to trying him back on the turf again. It looks a nice option and the horse to beat looks to be the Charlie Fellowes trained runner. Dane O'Neill takes the ride.

Byzantia 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
15:15, Yarmouth

Last run was a disaster as they went very steady and she never settled. This drop to a straight mile should suit well and she should love the ground.

First Connection 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
14:40, Yarmouth

Made a nice debut on a track where it pays to be on the pace. He finished the race strongly suggesting this stiffer straight mile will be perfect. Quick ground is no problem.

Capla Spirit 
Tue 27th Apr 2021
14:00, Brighton

Rarely far away in his races but does have a bit to prove on the turf with all 3 career wins to date coming on the AW. Has had a good winter on the sand surfaces though so returns to the grass fit and well, while Callum's 7lb claim is a big help. First run at the track too, but should suit and will love the quick going. Open race, but is well and would have e/w claims.

Waltzing 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
18:00, Thirsk

Raced too keen last time out at Redcar over a mile, so dropping back to 6f here today. First try over this trip so a bit of a fact-finding mission but dropped 5lbs helps too. Still learning so best watched until we see more on the track.

Point Louise 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
17:15, Lingfield Park

Needed the run last time out at Kempton and also didn't get the best of runs that day - squeezed for room. Is better than that effort and at the end of last year showed some good form. Tough race, but no shock to see a better performance today and would have a small e/w chance with David Probert riding for the first time.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Battled on well to outstay the rest.


Mon 26th Apr 2021
17:05, Southwell

Doesn't win very often but a consistent performer overall and returned to form here last week with a fine second - Also had another of today's runners, Contingency Fee back in third that day. Loves the fibresansd and hoping we've found a nice chance for him to win again here today off the same mark as last time. Slightly better race, mind, but as a result we've 4lbs less in racing weight to carry. Should go close, with Contingency Fee, who meets us on better terms, is the one we fear the most.

Secret Acquisition 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
17:05, Southwell

Has been disappointing since her return from a lay-off. She showed plenty of ability as a 2 year-old and still goes well at home, but things need to click on the track. Hopefully she takes to the surface.

Helm Rock 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
16:30, Southwell

Ran a nice race to be third over course and distance last time out and should come forward for that run. This looks a slightly deeper race though.

Recuerdame 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Looks the outsider here but ran well enough last time in a similar race. Multiple all weather winner but not here as yet so still has a bit to prove but may run much better than his odds suggest.

Avorisk Et Perils    WINNER! winner

Only went down a neck and a head.


Mon 26th Apr 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Got back to winning ways last time out over this course and distance – recording her third career success. Up 3lbs for that win looks fair, but the horse has come out of the race well and seeing as it also came off a 2 month break then every chance she’ll have improved for it too. Taking on several other in-form rivals in what looks a competitive race for the grade, but her proven CD form is a big plus and should be knocking on the door again here today. Decent each-way chance.

Bond Angel 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
15:55, Southwell

Didn't run to form last time out here over this same trip. Off the same mark today and Jonathan riding again to claim 5lbs - so identical on that score. Is, however, up slightly in grade here too, so more on her plate in terms of class so does need to find something off this career-high mark. The plus is we know she handles the surface, but that applies to most in the field too!

Soros    WINNER! winner

A top double on the day for Charlie at Southwell.


Mon 26th Apr 2021
15:25, Southwell

Made a good debut at this track but has since gone backward, albeit on tracks that definitely wouldn't have suited. Step up to 2 miles and return to this surface should suit well but he needs to take a big step forward.

Little Gem    WINNER! winner

Top call from Charlie and another TQ View winner too!


Mon 26th Apr 2021
14:50, Southwell

Ran well over course and distance two starts ago when the jockey dropped his stick 3 furlongs out - showing a liking for the surface. She seems well and this has been the plan for a while. She should run well again.

Beat The Breeze 
Mon 26th Apr 2021
14:00, Lingfield Park

Had a good Winter and looked like he was capable of making further progress last start. Stays well and this is his minimum trip - but entitled to take his chance whilst he waits for some decent ground. Seems in good form.

Lucky Beggar 
Sun 25th Apr 2021
16:40, Wetherby

This 11 year-old has not won for 2 years, but has gone close several times and has dropped to an attractive mark as a result - once rated in the 100's and now 50. This is his level these days though and has run well the last twice this season - beaten only 2 1/2 lengths last time at Thirsk. Down a pound for that and Laura Pearson riding to claim 5lbs more too, so 6lbs better off. Trip and ground are fine, he remains in good order at home and is a proven CD winner here. Certainly can't be ruled out and would have a fair e/w chance here, with the Midgley horse - Good Luck Fox - probably the one we've all got to beat.

Sognatore 
Sun 25th Apr 2021
16:00, Salisbury

Sognatore was left badly positioned in a slowly run race last Saturday at Nottingham, should show up better if this doesn't come too soon and race is run at more solid pace.

Dream Design 
Sun 25th Apr 2021
15:10, Wetherby

Dream Design was very green early on debut but hopefully learned something that day and can take a step forward this time around.

Red Poppy 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
19:30, Doncaster

Red Poppy was bitterly unlucky over course and distance last time out. This race looks absolutely perfect and she is working well. She should go close.

Harmonious    WINNER! winner

Much better from Scott's horse.


Sat 24th Apr 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

Did well at the end of last year on the fibresand at Southwell, with two seconds. Needed the run last time after 5 months off at Doncaster but will be better for that and is 5lbs lower here. Back up in trip to 1m4f too, but has run okay over 1m6f in the past so we think it will suit. Is, however, still looking for his first win (7 runs), so just be delighted with a better run than last time, but does have a light weight (8-8), which will help. Likely to be fought out by the Crisford and Dascombe horses though.

Byron Hill 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
18:30, Doncaster

Byron Hill is a lovely big staying type who has done very well over the winter. This is a tough starting point, but he will love the track and we think the ground will suit. He could still run well.

Golden Boy Grey 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
17:25, Sandown

Has done nothing much wrong to date with two wins from his three runs. Is into a handicap here for the first time too, but his previous course win will be a big help here. Had a nice break since his last run (2 months) and gets in here with a lovely racing weight (10-7). The only unknown is he’s run so far with cut in the ground, and we know that suits, but works well enough on the better surface at home too. Slightly longer trip here too, but on this quicker ground that will help having won in heavy ground last time over 2m3f. Another competitive race on the card, but another we’d have an each-way chance in if coping with the quicker ground.

Cervaro Mix 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
17:25, Sandown

Alan, as he's known at home, has had niggly issues after finishing second at Uttoxeter last September, then because the ground was so soft we gave him a good winter break in anticipation of a spring/summer campaign on his favoured good ground. Alan takes a lot of work to get fit, mainly because he finds it all very easy at home, so there will be plenty of improvement in him, but he has gone well fresh in the past.
Prince Rock 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
17:10, Wolverhampton

Multiple all weather winner and won last start under today's rider last time over a mile at Lingfield. Well drawn today over shorter but no reason why this won't suit him and seems in top form.

Iconic Muddle

Krank It 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
15:55, Leicester

Would be a big ask after debut run at Redcar - was well back that day, but in his defence the horse was slowly away and the saddle also slipped - had his excuses, so can draw a line through that. On a plus, we feel the step up in trip to 1m2f here will suit though and that experience (although a bad one) would have taught him a bit. So, really just looking for a better effort than last time and build from there - and will be one step nearer getting a mark.

Larry 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
15:40, Sandown

Nice to have a runner in the Bet365 Gold Cup, but likely to be the outsider of the field after some average runs of late. That said, can ignore the last run as it was over 2m (bit on the short side for him) – got outpaced as a result and also lost a shoe in the race. On a plus, he’s a course winner here and likes this good ground, but the step up to this more extreme trip is a slight unknown but has run well over just shy of 3m in the past so it’s worth a crack. The horse is well, and we’ll learn a lot about the trip here. Tall order, but at least we know the track and ground suit. 

Tallulah 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
15:25, Haydock

Tallulah is a lovely filly by sea the stars. She has done plenty of work and is above average although this could be a decent race. She should run nicely but won’t be knocked around on debut.

Maketh Believeth 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
14:15, Haydock

Going to be a tough call to beat the hotpot Haggas runner, but our colt is progressing the right way and took another step in the right direction last time at Kempton. Stepping up again in trip here from 1m2f to 1m4f and the way he stayed on last time suggests it'll suit. Be happy with second here, then after this will also gain a mark.

Royaume Uni 
Sat 24th Apr 2021
13:55, Sandown

Very competitive race but this 4 year-old has progressed nicely this season and should have a decent each-way chance here. Closely matched with the Greenall-trained Herbiers after we were ½ a length second to that horse at Ascot last time out. Similar terms but in this slightly better race we get in with just 10st 2lbs in actual racing weight – 11lbs less than last time, so hoping we can turn the tables on that one. Good ground is fine too. Each-way.

Bellarena Lady    WINNER! winner

Easy winner and another TQ View success this week too.


Sat 24th Apr 2021
13:00, Leicester

Lovely filly that shows a lot of pace. Delighted with her second at HQ last week and is out again quickly here. Has come out of that race well and would have learned a lot from it, having run a tad green. Hard to know much about the others (lightly-raced too), but Hollie Doyle and obvious plus in the saddle and if improving on that last run slightly then she looks the clear one to beat here - with Hollie riding this filly hopefully it will be 'Girl Power' all round!

Bells Of Peterboro    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well to take this for Tim.


Fri 23rd Apr 2021
19:35, Chepstow

Second runner for us in this race - looks our better chance. Two recent seconds were decent efforts, with the last of those coming in a better race than this too. First run over this longer trip but stayed on well last time so we feel it will suit. We've probably the Nicholls horse to beat, but our horse is well and hopeful of a decent e/w run.

Three Colours Red 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
18:45, Worcester

Pulled up the last twice so we've given the horse a wind operation and a break since. Returns on a fair mark though - just a pound higher than last win - and we've also got Charlie taking off 5lbs. The horse is also the only proven CD winner in the field and likes this better ground. Does have a bit to prove and likely to improve for this return, but at least he's running at a track we know he likes and isn't too badly treated on older form.

Shattered Glass    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this month.


Fri 23rd Apr 2021
18:05, Chepstow

Ran okay last time at Taunton, when fourth of 9. Ran on well that day to suggest this step up in trip will suit and we've been dropped a few pounds too. The cheekpieces will help too and is fine on this quicker ground. Should have every chance.

The Dawn Man 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
18:05, Chepstow

Second runner in the race for us - has more to prove than our other runner after being well beaten the last twice and is only 2lbs lower than last time. Is, however, starting to look well-handicapped on older form so can't totally rule put we'd like to see it on the track first.

Freedelivery 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
18:05, Chepstow

Back from 6 months off here so likely to improve for the run here today. Returns on a 5lb lower mark than last time so that helps. Won well on heavy ground at Ffos Las a few years ago but hasn't built on that since so really just be hoping for a step in the right direction. The good ground will be fine though - has run well in a Point on this ground.

Alfida 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
17:35, Chepstow

A nice mare, but is still learning and yet to sparkle from three runs. Would be a shock if she won on what we've seen for far but will gain more experience and nearer to getting a handicap mark.

Arthurs Realm 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
16:40, Sandown

He needed he first run at Kempton where he was to fresh and he has come out of this race well and looks to have come on for the run. It is a competitive affair with the unbeaten Sea The Shells the horse to beat on paper. Tom Marquand takes the ride. 

Floral Bouquet    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Jamie.


Fri 23rd Apr 2021
16:35, Worcester

Floral Bouquet won a couple of novice hurdles and was subsequently in the grip of the handicapper, but has proved she can be very competitive off marks sub 110.  She picked up an injury last autumn, but recovered well and although she needed her seasonal debut, she should strip fitter now, and can win races throughout this summer.  She has had two runs over fences in her career but on unsuitably soft ground, and she does jump well at home. Not without a chance here.

Cossack Dancer    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take the e/w money.


Fri 23rd Apr 2021
16:20, Perth

Cossack Dancer runs in a novice handicap hurdle over 2m 4f. Cossack has been frustrating, he works really nicely at home yet he doesn’t show that same speed or level of form on a racecourse for whatever reason. He did have a wind operation before his last run but I would ignore that race at Sandown where the ground was desperate and he couldn’t handle conditions at all, hopefully this better ground and a step up in trip will bring about the necessary improvement. Each-way claims.
Sashenka    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Scu's horse back on the flat.


Fri 23rd Apr 2021
15:25, Doncaster

Has been a bit frustrating from her four hurdles runs as has talent but is yet to get her head in front - has been second three times! Back on the flat here today though - has a good record on the level with 4 wins and many place finishes when trained by Sylvester Kirk. First run on the flat for us so we'll learn more here, but she's fit and well so not without a chance in what looks a race that all four of us have a chance.

Monkey Puzzle 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
14:40, Perth

If you ignore his last run where he found Taunton too sharp on good ground Monkey has been pretty consistent this season. Monkey won first time out at Fontwell and he put up a brave performance that day, he looked beaten at the last fence but really stayed on well to grind out a win. He’s a horse that prefers decent ground so during the winter months we have go to the courses where he will get better conditions but they don’t always play to his staying strengths and even though this track will be sharp enough for him the extra distance will help him with that.
Johnny Estella 
Fri 23rd Apr 2021
13:05, Doncaster

Has improved for his debut and has been working nicely this spring. He will probably need to run and will find things much easier when stepping into handicaps.

Aeronisi 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
17:55, Exeter

Did okay on debut at Stratford last October. Had the winter off and had a wind op during that time. Is ready to go again on this better ground, but is one that's likely to be better once getting a handicap mark.

College Oak 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
17:25, Exeter

Won a bumper last season and he's won two over hurdles this season, but one was a conditional jockeys' race at Ascot so he escapes one penalty back here in novice company. It looks the right race to defy that penalty but it'll be the fastest ground he has encountered before. If coping with that then he should have every chance of upsetting the favourite.

Alibaba 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
16:25, Beverley

Alibaba ran well here as a two year just getting touched off on the line, he has had a Winter break and is now ready to run, he would have liked some rain but we hope for a good run to start the season.

Dalamoi    WINNER! winner

Great call from Tim, just missed out by a neck.


Thu 22nd Apr 2021
16:15, Warwick

Nice well-bred 4 year-old that is having his debut today. Shows plenty of pace at home and we think the ground will suit. Handy that we get weight off the main players and some of those that have run before. Nice to get going with him and a horse we like a fair bit. These races are probably not ones to go mad in, with all the unraced and unknowns, but the horse has been doing everything right at home and looking forward to seeing how he goes. Each-way.

Mrs Meader 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
15:50, Beverley

Mrs Meader is full sister to our sadly lost Gas Monkey, she ran a lovely race on yard debut at Newmarket but came back with an injury that has kept her off the track until now. She has been working well but could have done with some rain, small field will suit and she will probably need further but we take our chance and hope for a good run to go forward.

Osca Loca 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
15:40, Warwick

Former winning Pointer and Hunter Chaser, so knows how to get his head in front. Yet to translate that under Rules though from two runs but the better ground is expected to suit and is also 5lbs lower than last time. More needed and back from 6 months off, so really just looking for a better run and build from there.

Republican 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
15:30, Perth

Republican ran a blinder last time out at Haydock when he was a fast finishing third in a decent race, he got outpaced three out before staying on strongly from the last. If the ground had been softer I think he’d have nearly won but a sharp track on decent ground just found him out a bit when the front horses quickened away. Republican is a very honest horse who will go novice chasing again in the autumn and with another summer on his back I think he’ll make up into a nice chaser next season. But still looks to have every chance here in a very open race. Jonathan Burke rides.
Elisezmoi 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
14:30, Warwick

Ran well for much of the race at Fontwell last time out – that came over 2m2f, so the drop back in trip here will help having lost a few places in the final stages of that last race. Ground is fine too and has also been dropped a few pounds by the handicapper so that helps.

Isaac Wonder 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
14:20, Perth

We were delighted with his return run at Newbury at the end of last month, when second. We gave him time to get over that run but has progressed well at home since and has travelled up well. Trip and ground are fine and looks to have a leading chance.

Teruntum Star 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
14:10, Beverley

Dropped jockey - Laura Pearson - at the start last week at Ripon - we are not sure what happened. Well handicapped and has CD form at the track. Goes well fresh too, but also in great shape. Ali Rawlinson takes over in the saddle and with a fair draw in 6 should have a decent e/w chance.

Twycross Warrior    WINNER! winner

Great run from Robin's horse.


Thu 22nd Apr 2021
14:00, Warwick

Off the track for over a year but can run well fresh! That said, no matter what will come on for the run but is well at home and does have a consistent profile.

Neff 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
14:00, Warwick

Just got a bit tired in the end last time on first run back for 3 months and over a longer trip. Back slightly here in distance will help and has improved for that outing, while this is also a drop in grade. Same mark here to last time, but still looks not too badly treated based on his runs a year or so ago - no shock if he ran a decent each-way race here.

Cilaos Glace 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
13:50, Perth

Chilli has been running over fences this season and after a good second on his debut he’s been a bit disappointing.
We can’t get him to make a mistake at home but on a racecourse he seems to lose concentration and he’s certainly not been fluent in his last two runs. I’ve reverted to hurdles today just to re boot his confidence for what will probably be his last run before a summer break. Chilli would prefer softer ground than he is going to get today but due to the fact we’ve had no rain for such a long time this is going to be the safest ground we could get for him right now. Chilli was very strong in his races as a youngster so we were unable to step him up in trip, I think he will prove to be better over three miles so hopefully we’ll be able to go back chasing in the autumn over a longer distance.
Laurie Come On 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
13:30, Warwick

Laurie has been a challenging horse to train this season, he’s had all sorts of niggly problems, nothing serious just annoying things that have not allowed me to have a free run with him. Laurie takes a lot of work to get fit so every time he got held up it took a while to get him ready to run again. Laurie is an honest, kind horse he’s a very good jumper at home but he’s not the quickest, he’s likely to go to the sales in May and I would thoroughly recommend him to go pointing.
Three Bullet Gate 
Thu 22nd Apr 2021
13:30, Warwick

Jumped and travelled well last time but got tired from turning in - will strip fitter for that run and might be worth a little bit each-way today

Sopran Thor    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Gary's 6 year-old.


Thu 22nd Apr 2021
13:00, Warwick

Has hit the woodwork several times from his eight career runs, but is yet to grab that first hurdles win from 6 tries. Hoping we’ve found a good chance for him here today though, in what doesn’t look a great race. His experience should be a plus for him and acts well on the ground. The two Henderson runners are naturally feared, as is the Ben Pauling runner Mister Watson – who looks the main danger, but another bold showing on the cards and hopefully can get off the mark.

Pablo Del Pueblo 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
19:40, Lingfield Park

Gyllen 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
19:30, Taunton

Very good form on the flat when trained in France. Nothing much for us over hurdles from three runs, but is into a handicap for the first time here so that should help. Will also like the better ground, so could show some improvement here, but we'd like to see it on the track first.

Prince Percy 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
19:30, Taunton

Hard to get excited on recent form, but only had four runs over hurdles so we are hoping a bit more experience will help him, but overall best-watched until we see more on the track.

Capla Spirit 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
19:10, Lingfield Park

Consistent sprinter that is a CD winner here - that that applies to most of these in the race. Last career win came here over this trip and off just a pound lower mark. Hollie Doyle a big plus in the saddle too - rides the horse for the first time. Feel there is a fair amount of pace in the race too and that should help us as likes to come from the back. Tight race, but every chance of going close again with one of the best jockeys in the race on ours! 

Carolines Quest 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
19:00, Taunton

Fourth of 11 at Market Rasen when last seen and even though beaten 20 lengths that day the winner has since franked the form a few times. She's still only had 5 career runs so still learning and will have more to come. Another of ours that's had a recent wind op, so we are hoping that will help her show more. But really this race looks to be Mystic Courts to lose.

Hector Loza 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:40, Lingfield Park

Well handicapped now and should go in any minute. Slightly better off with the favourite from last time and probably better this way round. Well drawn for a change as well so can't be totally discounted.

Strike The Flint 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:30, Taunton

Ran well enough last time - probably needed the race as very lazy at home. Starting to come down to a more reasonable mark and gaining confidence of hurdles now too. Has a small e/w chance in a large and competitive race.

Black Kalarosa 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:30, Taunton

Fair fifth at Huntingdon last time out. Step up in trip and better ground should suit here and the headgear is back on, each-way claims.

Aiguillette    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:10, Lingfield Park

Back from a break – last seen in Sept at Kempton. But has run well in his last two races – second both times – and returns on just a pound higher mark. Has done well over the winter and should not be far away as he looks for his first win on his twelfth start. Only negative is that he does have a habit of coming second (4 times, from 6 on the AW)!

Terri Rules 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:10, Lingfield Park

Okay draw in 3 here - often a horse that needs a bit of luck in-running as comes from the rear in her races. A bit of a fact-finding mission here as stepping up to 7f for the first time, but race style suggests it's worth a crack and if he stays the trip will open up more chances. Small e/w chance. 

Brazen Point 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:10, Lingfield Park

Didn't run too badly on first run for the yard at Kempton last time (6th of 12). That came off a 6 month break and has been gelded since so can be expected to have improved for it. The cheekpieces are on today too and Danny Muscutt takes over in the saddle. Ran on well over 6f last time too so suggest the step up in trip will suit. Second runner in the race for us and looks to have a similar e/w chance.

Mungos Quest 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:10, Lingfield Park

Has a small race in him and knocked over at the start last time so best to overlook that. Needs to show more on the track before you could get too confident about him but will at least be a big price.

Plenty Of Butty 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:00, Taunton

Did well last season - winning at Newton Abbot last September. Last seen running in a NH Flat race at Lingfield in January but that was a race to just keep him ticking over really. Had a nice break since that run and back over hurdles here today. Will love the better ground with last hurdles win coming on similar ground. A few others with similar chances, but should go well - each-way.

Darkest Day 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:00, Taunton

Can ignore the last run as got hampered by a faller and lost all chance. Before that won at Plumpton and has been consistent in his races this year. Often travels well in this races so was nice to see him go through with the effort at Plumpton recently too. Had a few weeks to get over that last race, but only 4lbs higher than that last win and with ground to suit and this trip fine, no shock to see him bounce back in a very poor race.

Lightning Bug 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:00, Taunton

Put up a much better performance last time and is starting to settle better now. Hopeful of a reasonable showing on a flatter track which should help her as she is not very big. Overall, not a great race and would expect her to finish in the top half off 10st.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
18:00, Taunton

Bit to prove at the moment and yet to win a race from 9 tries. On a plus the better ground will be more to his liking with his best runs coming on a quicker surface, while he's had a wind op over the winter too. Just be happy with a step in the right direction.

Trixie Waterbury 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
17:40, Lingfield Park

Course winner here at Kempton over 7f - failed to back that win up here last time, but that race probably came a bit too soon for her - just 8 days after that win. Slightly harder race here, but has a few months off to freshen up and we feel the step up to a mile will suit and bring out more improvement. Track suits and should be in the thick of things with a solid e/w chance. Luke Morris rides.

Fascinating Lips    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary and another TQ View winner this month.


Wed 21st Apr 2021
17:10, Lingfield Park

Former winner on the flat in Germany. Made a pleasing start to his career with us a few weeks ago at Windsor, when 5th of 13. Only beaten 3 lengths that day and ran on well. The effort was also better than it looked as the horse got a bit worked up in the stalls. But that experience would be good for him and looking forward to this debut run on the AW here today with this representing a slight ease in grade too. With some slight improvement should not be far away.

Calm Down 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
17:10, Lingfield Park

Won last Sept when trained by Ralph Beckett, but has yet to sparkle in two runs for us. But probably not best suited by the Southwell and Chelmsford tracks the last two days so Lingfield should be more to her liking. 2lbs lower and the visor on for the first time here, but need to see more on the track really before being more confident.

Subliminal 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Multiple course winner here over 10f and yet to prove he stays further. Top rider knows him really well so worth another go in this small field and the horse seems in great shape.

Ocean Drifter 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
14:30, Perth

Murphy, as he's known at home, was far too keen last time out at Sandown on horrible ground, he went out like a light and pulled up going to the last. He was found to have lost a shoe but I honestly don’t think it made any difference on that occasion. Murphy is a buzzy horse and we have fitted him with a hood again today in the hope that he will relax more on this step up in trip. Although he’s an easy horse to deal with I wish Murphy would just chill a bit because he is a three mile chaser in the making. Nice to get back going with him and get some more experience into him, but looks a hot little race and we've plenty to find on these terms at the weights, with the Nicholls, O'Brien and Richards runners!
Peur De Rien 
Wed 21st Apr 2021
13:55, Perth

Roger, as he's known at home, won nicely last time out at Kempton following up a good second at Doncaster on his previous outing. Roger is a confidence horse who won first time out at Uttoxeter before pulling up on his next two starts when losing the plot, I hope he’s turned the corner on those issues after these two recent good runs and I’ve no reason to believe he hasn’t. Probably has the Bowen horse to fear most, but looks to have a decent chance.
Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Tue 20th Apr 2021
20:30, Southwell

Returned last month with a fair fourth here over this CD. Has come out of that race well and dropped 3lbs by the handicapper gives him a chance. Would have come on for that last outing too and Jonathan still able to claim 5lbs too. This also represents a drop in grade - is however, placed in his races more than winning - just 1 win from 20 on the AW, but 7 top 3 finishes. So, would be more of an e/w play again.

Dew You Believe 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
20:20, Wolverhampton

Showed a bit of promise in his three runs to date, but first time in a handicap here will help. Fair draw in 4 and this 7f trip is fine. Will have more to offer, but really just be delighted with a step in the right direction here. George Wood rides.

Catesby 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
20:00, Southwell

We might have to settle for another third here as we've a bit to find on the ratings with the Easterby and Fahey runners. Has filled the bronze medal slot in both starts to date too. But they were pleasing efforts and that experience will help. Should run well, but with 10st might be a tall order to win, so be happy with a place and we'll get a mark after this too. 

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

Another solid run from Gay's horse.


Tue 20th Apr 2021
19:00, Southwell

Has a great time of it this year - winning three times, including last time out at Wolverhampton. Likes the track here at Southwell and another 3lb rise for that last success looks fair, but we are offsetting that with George's claim anyway so gets in here off the same mark anyway. Remains in great form at home and looks to have the Ryan runner to fear most.

Fine Wine 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
19:00, Southwell

Fair debut run for us earlier this month - has winning form in France though. Did run a bit free the last day so dropping back in trip should help, plus is also 3lbs lower this time. Still learning from the horse, but feel the drop to 5f will certainly help. The in-form Kevin Ryan horse might be hard to beat though for us all!

Capricorn Prince 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
18:20, Wolverhampton

Ran no sort of race last time out at Kempton over 2m. We've given him around 3 months off since and prior to that last outing had progressed nicely with two wins last summer. Back to 1m6f here today will help and we are also helping him with Rhys taking off 5lbs. First run here at Wolves, but no reason why it won't suit. Does have a bit to answer and needs to put that last run behind him, but no shock to see a better show here, with small e/w claims.

Bond Angel 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
17:30, Southwell

Likes the track here, with several wins here on the fibresand. Last of those came two runs ago off a 5lb lower mark. Failed to follow up that win last time here so more needed off this career-high rating. But a chance that last race just came a bit too soon - only 10 days between races - so the month off this time would have freshened her up. Small Each-way claims.

Cabrini 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
16:45, Yarmouth

Cabrini is a lovely filly that we bought in December sales out of Simon Crisfords’s yard, she is well bred and needed time, so we gave her the Winter break, she has been working well but she will learn plenty here in a hot novice and will be well worth following when she is handicapped.

Harrier Hawk 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
16:10, Yarmouth

Yet to win a race but only had five career runs. Wasn't beaten far last time at Wolves and has come out of that race well. Return to the turf here will help, as will the slight step up in trip after running on well the last day. Should be more to come from him and shouldn't be far away. Richard Kingscote rides.

Winter Snowdrop 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
16:10, Yarmouth

Winter Snowdrop had a good season last year and is getting better with age, she has had a Winter break but has been working well, this is her grade and track so we hope she is the best chance of our runners today.

Valletta Sunset 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
16:10, Yarmouth

Has been disappointing after showing promise in his novices. This is probably his last chance and we can see if the quicker ground on turf brings any improvement - just hoping for a better run.

Amazing Red 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
15:55, Epsom

Pulled off a shock last time at Leicester to beat the hot favourite. Up 4lbs for that and likely that another step forward is needed in this good little race, with several promising sorts in. Will love the ground and we think the track will be fine (first run here). That recent run will hopefully give him an advantage, but despite only 5 runners there looks to be a bit more depth to this race than the last one he won, with the Varian runner respected. Mark Crehan, who claims 5lbs again, keeps the ride.

Fields Of Berries 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
15:35, Yarmouth

Field of Berries is a new recruit to the yard, she is lowly rated and has probably needed time so today will be a learning curve with her, we hope she can show some promise.

Duke Of Firenze 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
13:45, Epsom

Duke The Legend, as we call him at home. Won really well at Lingfield last time so still going strong despite now being a 12 year-old - this will be his 109th career outing! That was his 12th career win - has come out of that race well too and loves the track here at Epsom - won the 'Dash' here in 2013!. Pace in the race helps as likes to come from off the speed, while Laura Pearson, who rode last time, remains in the saddle to claim a handy 5lbs. Should go well.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Tue 20th Apr 2021
13:45, Epsom

Decent sprinter on his day but does find it hard to win - last success came 13 runs ago and just the 4 wins from 64 career starts. Returns from a 4 month break today but has been doing plenty of work at home and has run well fresh in the past. Track is fine too - was second in the Dash here in 2019 and that came off a 15lb higher mark so well-handicapped on that form. Tight race that will probably go down to a fine margin call. But we've got Hollie Doyle riding for the first time too so that's an obvious plus.

Spanish Mane 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
13:20, Yarmouth

Spanish Mane was a superstar last year winning three times, she has had a Winter break and has been working better than ever, she likes being ridden by the girls so my nephew has his first ride as an apprentice on her but joking apart she prefers not to be bullied so should be an ideal ride for him, hopefully she will be thereabouts and get him started.

Roca Magica 
Tue 20th Apr 2021
13:20, Yarmouth

Only career win on the turf so far came here at Yarmouth, so that's a plus. We are rated 3lbs higher than that 2020 success, but will love the quick ground and despite finishing 8th last time was only beaten 2 1/4 lengths. Richard Kingscote rides and should have every chance in an open race. Each-way.

Bridle Loanan 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
18:20, Kempton Park

Bit to prove at the moment after some average efforts of late. Had a month off to freshen up and we are down another 3lbs here so that helps. Did also have a big racing weight last time so with a bit less to carry here that will help. He is certainly better than what he's shown of late, but a bit of cut in the ground might have helped.

Tight Call 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
18:00, Market Rasen

Returned to form last time with a close second at Uttoxeter. Has come out of that race well and come on for it too. Raised 5lbs for that run is a bit harsh but we did pull a fair way clear of the rest of the field that day I guess. Better ground is fine - has won on good - and this trip is okay. Should not be far away and would have a decent e/w chance.

Kost A Coat 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
17:50, Kempton Park

Not a race with much depth and likely to be fought out between the Newland and Nicholls runners. But we think our horse is certainly better than last time at Wincanton. Didn't jump great that day so has had plenty of schooling since. Trip and ground are fine too and even though likely to be more competitive once getting a handicap mark, we'd not be shocked if he ran better than recent runs.

Anti Cool 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
17:30, Market Rasen

Didn't run too badly last time here after 3-4 months off - just getting a bit tired in the closing stages. Drop back in trip here today, but that should be fine and does seem to run well here at the track. With a light racing weight too then would have an e/w chance here.

Enough Already 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
16:45, Windsor

Won at Lingfield last time - coming with a late run on his first try over this 1m2f trip. Switches to the turf here today but has fair form on the grass when with other trainers (4 top three finishes from 5 runs). Only 2lbs higher here and had plenty of time to get over that last run - almost 2 months. Ground is fine too and another bold bid looks on the cards. The Jim Boyle horse the one to beat, but should have every chance and a decent e/w option.

Outrage 
Mon 19th Apr 2021
14:10, Windsor

Long time since winning on the turf but ran some good races in defeat last summer and is a CD winner here too (2015). Should be going well if transferring recent AW form to here.

Ajax Tavern 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
17:05, Newbury

Yet to win on the turf (5 runs), with only win coming on the AW at Lingfield. Only third run for the yard and did much better last time at Lingfield (Jan) when a close 4th. Had a wind op over the winter and since that last run too. Returns on a career-low mark and we've managed to book Hollie Doyle too. Looking forward to getting going again with him so be happy with a solid run with the wide draw in 16 not ideal - going to be hard from there!

Mariegold 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
16:30, Newbury

Mariegold is a lovely big scope filly who ran well on debut last year. She should love the track and ground today and is ready for a run. Ryan Moore is a useful jockey booking

Some Chaos 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
15:35, Ayr

Been a bit average this year in last few runs, but they came over hurdles and isn't quite the same horse over hurdles. The Scottish National has always been the target. So, back over fences a plus and acts well on the better ground. Longer trip a slight unknown as first time tackling this sort of distance, but has won over 3m2f in the past so every chance he'll be fine. Goes without saying a super competitive and open race but the horse is well and with the ground in his favour certainly has a squeak. 

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Gary's improving hurdler.


Sun 18th Apr 2021
14:50, Wincanton

After a string of seconds he gained a deserved win at Plumpton last time out. Loves the better ground and has come out of that race well. Feel we've found another good opportunity for him to grab another win here. The Nicholls horse to beat, but the ratings suggest we've a fair bit in-hand and we'll be disappointed if he can't follow-up that recent win again here.

Ask Himself 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
14:15, Wincanton

3lbs lower than last time but we are also upping him in trip here today after getting a bit outpaced aver 2m recently. The better ground should help him get the trip too and breeding suggests it's worth a crack. A bit of a fact-finding mission and the Nicholls horse looks the main one, but hoping for a good run and if getting the trip can hopefully open a few more doors. Ground is fine.

Vadream    WINNER! winner

Top effort from Charlie's horse.


Sun 18th Apr 2021
14:10, Newbury

Vadream won nicely on debut and has always been held in high regard by my yard. Her work this spring has been very nice and she looks well. This is a huge step up in grade so we will see if she is good enough!

Red Verdon 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
13:35, Newbury

In good form at home and will enjoy the step back down in trip here after running over 2m last time in Dubai. Good ground is fine too and Frankie, who has won on him before, a bonus in the saddle. The William Haggas horse will be hard to beat though, but on his best form not without a chance of getting some place money.

Chez Hans 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
13:22, Stratford upon Avon

More needed on recent runs and only third run for the yard since coming from the Olly Murphy team. Down 6lbs here helps from last time and also down in grade. Also debut run over fences here today so hoping the switch will bring some improvement. Weak race but still probably best watched though until we see more.

Three Colours Red 
Sun 18th Apr 2021
11:45, Stratford upon Avon

Red Glory 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
17:45, Nottingham

He showed promise on his first three start over 7f and should benefit from a gelding operation and this step up in trip. He has been in good form at home and hopefully will put in a good performance. The horse to beat looks to be Corbulo of Brian Meehan's who was quite impressive last time out at Bath. Mark Crehan (5) takes the ride.

Sognatore 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
17:45, Nottingham

Steps up in trip to ten furlongs for his run on turf, also has a hood added as he has thrown away his chances by travelling keenly a couple of times.

Thunder Ahead 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
17:15, Nottingham

Delighted with his debut run at Lingfield, when 4th of 12. Has done well since at home and first run on the grass here will be fine. Trip is fine and we've Oisin Murphy booked to ride. Hoping his experience and that recent run will be a bit plus here. Each-way chance.

Monte Carlo Bay 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
17:15, Nottingham

Has a poor draw today and is very much a 'work in progress' horse at the moment. He will need to be very good to go close today.

Jeremiah 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
13:40, Thirsk

Is very very talented but equally as quirky. He has won over CD before and is on a workable mark though - he can go well.

Counteract 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
12:55, Bangor

No penalty for his last win at Plumpton. Up in trip here to 3m, with last two wins coming over around 2m4f, but suggests he'll stay based on recent wins. Loves the better ground and no track issues. As long as the quick races don't catch up with him then should have every chance of landing the three-timer. Micheal Nolan takes over in the saddle.

Tractor Fred 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
12:55, Bangor

Bolted up when encountering some decent ground for the first time at Plumpton the time before last. We has to run him quickly after that race before the handicapper reacted and he ran okay to be third - but did look a bit flat that day. Rejuvenated with 3 weeks off since - he should be sharper here but he'll have to be with a couple of recent winners in here and some with some useful form. However, it's the right class of race for us and he should be competitive here.

Shackabooah    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Scott's horse.


Sat 17th Apr 2021
12:40, Thirsk

Fit from the AW when running several good races over the winter. Back on the turf here, but only third run on the grass. Still looking for his first career win, but has gone close many times. Was also probably a bit unlucky last time at Lingfield when not getting the best of runs so with a bit more luck should be in the mix again here.

Lucky Beggar 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
12:40, Thirsk

11 years-old now, but still loving his racing. Needed the run last time out at Newcastle after a break, but still wasn't beaten too far. Dropped a few pounds for that and back on the turf here will suit. In really good shape and is running at a track he's a CD winner at - when winning this race a few years ago. Should go well and fair e/w option in an open affair.

Badness Backfires 
Sat 17th Apr 2021
11:25, Bangor

Came to us from the Gordon Elliott yard - did well on debut run for us at Hereford last month (4th of 14). Similar race here and dropped a pound for that run, while Lorcan, who rode last time out, remains in the saddle. The Skelton horse - Dan Gun - might be hard to beat, but if building on that last run would have an e/w chance here.

Colonial Empire    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect for Tim.


Fri 16th Apr 2021
19:50, Exeter

Goes without saying we've all got the Nicholls horse to beat here so could all be playing for places. Our horse is doing well at home though and ready to run here on debut. Will be fine in the ground and the track should suit. Looking forward to getting going with him and be delighted if we can grab second here!

Jersey Wonder    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this week.


Fri 16th Apr 2021
17:50, Exeter

Jersey Wonder has improved with each race over hurdles and he’s now very slick at his obstacles, he seems to be enjoying it all and he handles top of the ground - winning well at Fontwell last time out. Jersey Wonder was a decent stayer on the flat before becoming a bit bored and possibly highly enough handicapped so as his owner Tony Taylor has horses with both Jamie Osborne and myself he switched to me last autumn. He was a little sod when he first arrived, he would kick and try to bite other members of the string but he’s a reformed character now, he’s still a cheeky chap but he seems to be enjoying his jumping and it’s brought about a change in attitude. Up 6lbs from last time, but in this better race gets in with a nice racing weight of 10st 6lbs. Aidan a plus in the saddle too and looking forward to another big run on ground he'll love.
Storm Katie 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
16:50, Exeter

Katie was very keen in her only race to date, a soft ground bumper at Fontwell where she stopped quickly half a mile from home. She was found to have a wind issue, she has been operated on and this is her first race since. Katie is still quite a buzzy filly at home so she is also wearing a first time hood today, in attempt to relax her. We’ve done plenty of schooling with her and she’s always jumped well enough at home, I just hope she settles. It’s difficult to say how she will run but if she’s not up to being competitive in a race like this she will probably end up going to the sales as her owners have a lot of youngsters coming through. Goes without saying the Paul Nicholls runner will be hard to beat for us all though.
Nora The Xplorer    WINNER! winner

Much improved run from Henry's horse.


Fri 16th Apr 2021
16:50, Exeter

Lot more needed from what she's shown on the track so far. But will gain more experience here and will be more competitive once getting a handicap mark.

Episode 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
16:10, Fontwell Park

Another runner of ours today that has a chance but also has a hot favourite to deal with. She won well here over this course and distance last time and the 4lb hike is offset with Niall's 5lb claim this time. Trip, track and ground all fine and even though I think it would be a shock if we beat the favourite - outside that horse, we'd have fair place claims.

Quelle Vitesse 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
16:00, Newbury

First run on the track - a very well-bred filly (Golden Horn) but likely to do better in time. We help her on debut though with Saffie taking off 7lbs.

Bolt N Brown 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
15:35, Fontwell Park

Another solid run last time at Plumpton (2nd) so would have an each-way chance here if running to that form. Ease in grade slightly helps, but has more weight as a result (12-1). Jamie a plus in the saddle and the first-time blinkers can hopefully help eke out a bit more. Only unknown is the step up in trip - up to 3m2f here, but we feel it's worth a try.

Fact of The Matter 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
15:00, Fontwell Park

Fact of the Matter has been a legend for us down the years, and it is lovely to see him back in and still with the same enthusiasm for life.  He is in great form, and although he isn't getting any younger, he should still be up to winning races.  He loves the quirks of the Cheltenham Cross Country course and won around that track off an official mark of 135, but his highest ever winning mark over conventional fences is 125, and he runs off 127 today.  However, he should enjoy the figure of 8 track here, and this doesn't look a strong race for a class 3, so he should have a chance despite this being his first run in almost a year.

Ballydoyle 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
14:25, Fontwell Park

Only career win came on the flat - yet to win over hurdles from 4 times (2 thirds). Needs to brush up his jumping and settle a bit better but we feel the better ground should suit and Jamie takes over in the saddle. Doesn't look the best of races, so would have another chance of getting off the mark over hurdles, with Nye Bevan one of the main dangers. Each-way chance.

Big Jimbo 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
14:25, Fontwell Park

Second runner for us in the race and we'd have a chance here too - both our runners are hard to split really. Only had three runs over hurdles but shown up well with a few places. Blew away the cobwebs with a spin on the flat last time at Kempton at the end of March. Will act well on the better ground and has gone okay at the track in the past. Should not be far away and another with an e/w chance.

Full Back 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
13:50, Fontwell Park

Tight little race with just the three runners, but looks a contest that we've all got a chance in. Can ignore the last run when pulled up at Ascot as lost a shoe that day and didn't jump very well as a result. Had a few months off to get over that and back to a track he's won at before too. We are the only distance winner in the field too, so hoping that counts for something and won't mind the better ground. Coolanly looks the main danger as we are rated the same as that horse but has to give it 6lbs. Not without a chance though.

Ozzie Man 
Fri 16th Apr 2021

Reckon Im Hot 
Fri 16th Apr 2021
13:10, Newbury

Nice colt that shows up well at home- but first day at school here today and the only 2 year-old we've got so hard to assess at this stage. I think we are the cheapest runner in the race too - for what that's worth, but as I say doesn't go badly at home so could run better than odds suggest, but really no more than a small e/w chance as we learn more here.  Rhys taking off 5lbs from the saddle.

Tara Iti 
Thu 15th Apr 2021
18:55, Newcastle

Last seen winning well at Leicester back in October - had a nice winter break and has been gelded during that time too. Has run here twice before so that track knowledge will help, but was down the field both times. No matter what will improve for this after 6 months off, but is well at home and looking forward to a nice return run. Small e/w chance.

Vanity Affair    WINNER! winner

A double on the day for the Fellowes yard.


Thu 15th Apr 2021
18:25, Newcastle

Has come through his race at Wolverhampton really well and he is able to run without a penalty as that was an apprentice race. This track should suit him much better than Wolves so he should be thereabouts again here today.

Party Planner 
Thu 15th Apr 2021
17:55, Newcastle

Can be forgiven for her last run when she didn't handle the home bend and was eased by the jockey. She will be better suited by this galloping track. The jockey has ridden her before so knows her now. She hopefully has an each-way chance here today.

Uraib 
Thu 15th Apr 2021
17:25, Newcastle

Nice filly that is having her debut here today - likely to improve for the experience here, but pedigree suggests this 1m2f trip is a good place to start her off.

Blow Your Horn    WINNER! winner

Easy win, as expected, for Charlie's horse.


Thu 15th Apr 2021
16:55, Newcastle

Bumped into a well handicapped horse last time out at Doncaster but beat the rest of a decent field comprehensively. Track should suit well and he worked nicely at the weekend. Draw 2 a plus and Jamie Spencer is expected to suit his running style. Should go well.

Northern Beau    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Scu and another top TQ View success this month too.


Thu 15th Apr 2021
16:25, Cheltenham

Made a bold bid last time but was a good race and over that 2m5f trip couldn't last out. Back in trip here and in a race she actually won last time it was run in 2019. Rated 5lbs higher than that win, but has won off a bigger mark since so that's fine. Often seems to save her best for Cheltenham - having won here twice - the ground should be ideal too and looks to be on a reasonable mark. We feel she does better in smaller fields too so must have a decent chance.

Early Morning Rain 
Thu 15th Apr 2021
15:50, Cheltenham

Early Morning Rain achieved her goal of black type and an 'elite mare' rating of 130 when 2nd in a Listed contest at Exeter last time out, and this will be her last run before heading off to stud.  She might find 2m4, on drying ground, around Cheltenham too much of a speed test today, but having not been able to see her run over the past year, her owners want a nice swan song to end her racing career.  Should be a good day out for them, and anything more is a bonus.

Teruntum Star 
Thu 15th Apr 2021
15:25, Ripon

Not a bad sprinter a few seasons ago and was rated in the 100's back in 17-18. Now 9 years-old so this is more his level these days but still enjoying his racing. Returns from a 5 month break, but on a low rating (74), which is a career-low mark. Trip and ground are fine and been working well at home too. A decent draw in 1 helps too, and Laura Pearson booked to take off a handy 5lbs adds to our chance. Competitive, but hard to rule out off this mark after a pleasing gallop last week.

Madera Mist    WINNER! winner

Another top run from Tim's horse.


Thu 15th Apr 2021
15:15, Cheltenham

Very open race, but would have chance. We are one of just two prove course winners in the field - having won well here back on December, beating another of today's runners - Black Tulip. Up 7lbs from that and wasn't disgraced last time when third at Ffos Las as got badly hampered that day by a faller. More needed in this better race, but only 10-5 to carry and we've freshened her up with a few months off. Should have more to come and won't mind the better ground. Each-way chance.

Verreaux Eagle    WINNER! winner

Promising effort from Ed's horse.


Thu 15th Apr 2021
13:15, Newmarket

Pleasing debut run last October here - that track experience will be a plus and has done well over the winter. That run also came on heavy ground so today's conditions should be more up her street. Mark Crehan booked to ride and helps by claiming 5lbs for us too. Looking forward to a nice run. Tough race though but will gain more experience here and one step nearer to getting a handicap mark.

Fortissimo 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
20:15, Kempton Park

Can be expected to have improved for the last run - came off 407 days off - when down the field at Lingfield. That was only his first run for us after coming from the Mark Johnston yard - so still learning about the horse. 3lbs lower and Rhiain also booked to claim another 3lbs. Fair draw in 4 helps too and has run well over this 7f trip in the past. But is still yet to win a race from 12 starts so overall we need to see more on the track.

Treble Clef 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
19:45, Kempton Park

Beat another of today's runners - Toofi - by a head last time out here. Back into a handicap here though and back down to 7f. Was a bit keen the last day so the drop in trip should be fine and was to be a bit expected after 3 months off. Ray Dawson rides and claims a handy 3lbs - should have every chance again and even though the draw hasn't been kind, we won from stall 11 last time. Place claims.

Doonbeg Farmer 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
19:15, Kempton Park

Disappointed last time and now appears up against it. He has some ability though and if Connor Murtagh can drop in and settle him he could run on in a weakish-looking race. Connor's 3lb claim may come in handy too though.

Cable Guy 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
17:45, Kempton Park

Ran appallingly on debut - he is much better than that. He ran green and around Southwell and that can be fatal. Kempton will suit much better and he has a good draw too (3). I would be disappointed if he didn't run much better today.

Wake Up Harry 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
16:45, Newmarket

Won his maiden and not beaten far in novice events either. Not raced on turf so sure to come on again for the experience. This is a much tougher race but it will point us in the right direction and likely to be a big price at HQ against the big battalions.

Singlefarmpayment 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
16:25, Cheltenham

Great to see the old boy win last time out at Ascot. He's got a reputation as a horse that throws in the towel in the closing stages but knuckled down nicely the last day to get the job done. We all know he's a talented horse so it's surprising he's only won twice over fences, but he's come out of that last race well and is only up 4lbs. His only other win over fences came here over this CD, so that gives us confidence too. Will love the ground and is still well-treated on old form. Each-way chance.

Bean is a very genuine and consistent performer who is generally a good jumper. He will improve from his last race at Newbury, which was his first after a winter break, as he takes more work than you’d expect for a slight horse. Bean loves top of the ground and he is a proper stayer, hopefully today he can continue in the same form he’s been in this season. Looks a tight little race, but holds a decent e/w chance.

He has been in good form at home and we are hoping remains of a good mark. It looks a competitive race with the Mark Johnston-trained runner - Happy - the horse to beat. Tom Eaves takes the ride.

The Big Bite 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
14:05, Cheltenham

Frustrating horse at time as has the ability to win races like this. Did everything right last time in the Greatwood Gold Cup until the last when he hung and nearly ran out. Threw the race away really to eventually be third and even though it was still a decent run it was disappointing as we know the horse is better than that. We also got raised 4lbs for our troubles. Has run at the Festival a few times so has tasted the track, but highly tried in the Bumper (18) and Supreme Novices' (19). Will love the ground and had a month off to get over that last race. Has still only been out of the top three once from his 6 runs over fences and should again be in the mix - hopefully can make amends for last time here.

Benatar 
Wed 14th Apr 2021
14:05, Cheltenham

Decent race but as a result we get in here with a low racing weight of just 10st 4lbs. Ran well here in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup back in December and off a 5lb lower mark would have a decent chance on that running. Had a few poo runs since, but was better last time at Warwick (2nd). Won't mind the ground and having been third on his only two runs here would have an e/w chance.

Bellarena Lady    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Ed's horse.


Wed 14th Apr 2021
13:15, Newmarket

She has been pleasing us at home and we are looking forward to seeing her maiden outing. But, the one to beat in the betting is the George Boughey-trained runner - Beautiful Sunshine - and on pedigrees alone it looks a competitive affair. William Buick takes the ride.

Detatched 
Tue 13th Apr 2021
17:25, Southwell

Can ignore the last run as got badly impeded by a faller, so actually still did well to finish only 13 lengths off the winner. Ben Godfrey returns to the saddle to take off a handy 5lbs and run prior to last time was a close second at Warwick. A repeat of that and with a bit more luck in-running would give him an e/w chance.

Le Boulevardier 
Tue 13th Apr 2021
16:55, Southwell

After an inauspicious start over obstacles Brian has finally settled into the role of a jumper and he has become more professional over his obstacles both at home and on a racecourse. I’ve been dying to step him up in trip as I think all he does is gallop so this extra half a mile should help him. Brian is a horse with ability but he does have a mind of his own and he was pretty naughty in his races after his bumper debut, I do think he has turned a corner though and even though he’s still cheeky at home he’s really enjoying his schooling nowadays and fingers crossed he might give a better account today especially over this extra distance, in what looks a very open race.
Let Me Entertain U 
Tue 13th Apr 2021
16:55, Southwell

Not been jumping the best in recent runs over hurdles, so we are putting on the blinkers here today for the first time. Down 3lbs from his last run helps too and into what should be an easier class. Still need to see more on the track but more in his favour here today. But overall will be happy with a step in the right direction.

Antony 
Tue 13th Apr 2021
14:00, Southwell

The Murphy horse could still be ahead of the handicapper and might be hard to topple, but Antony made a pleasing return to the track at the end of last month (2nd) at Fakenham. Has come out of that race well and loves the better ground. Ease in grade here too will help (2 grades lower), but as a result we've more racing weight this time. We are also putting the blinkers on for the first time to just try and help keep his mind on the job as made a few sketchy jumps the last day. A lot depends how the favourite runs, but no reason why we can't go okay. Each-way.

Natural History 
Tue 13th Apr 2021
13:15, Newton Abbot

Hopefully should be a straight forward task to get back to winning ways here. Will find this easier than the Imperial Cup last time, but we probably got the riding tactic a bit wrong that day anyway and is a lot better than that run. Will love the better ground today too and the track will be fine. Caddyhill looks the danger, but the ratings suggest we've got 12lbs in-hand so we'd be disappointed if we are not taking this.

Lawmans Blis 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
19:20, Wolverhampton

Back from a break after running okay on debut here back in November. Has had a wind op since then but really expected to improve for the experience and will be better once getting a mark. Luke Morris rides.

Flaminger 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
15:30, Huntingdon

Needs to bounce back from a poor run at Newbury last time out. Down a few pounds helps, but should also be more at home on the quicker ground. Step up in trip should suit too and looking forward to a better run - The Skelton horse is probably the one to beat, but we feel Flaminger can run better than recent run.

Fascinating Lips 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
15:10, Windsor

Harry Redknapp-owned German flat winner, that is having his first run in this country and first for us. Has shown up okay at home and looking forward to seeing were we are with him. Has won in Germany over a mile but feel this step up to 1m2f is a good place to start. We'll learn more about the horse today and being off the track since November can be expected to improve for this.

Francolin 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
14:30, Huntingdon

Colin was way too keen in his first race, a bumper at Hereford, as a result he stopped quickly and all but pulled up half a mile from home. When we began schooling Colin he was a natural (he had been schooled previous to arriving with us as he was going to go point to pointing) but he was still very strong in behind, we tried him in front and he relaxed more and concentrated on the job in hand. We made the running with him on his debut over hurdles and he ran much better, he is very much a work in progress though because he really is a three mile chaser but as with What A Glance (our other runner today) he has to relax more in his races first. Better once getting a handicap mark and the Skelton and Newland horses should be fighting this out really.
Representing Bob 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
14:30, Huntingdon

Is a very immature horse. He hasn't shown a great deal to date, but he is still a baby and once the penny drops he should be able to win a race or two. He might be better after another summer holiday and given time to mature. Anything he does in the meantime is a bonus.

Professor Galant 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
14:10, Windsor

Very easy winner at Southwell last time out - has come out of that race well but different conditions here today back on the turf. Showed plenty of speed last time so the drop back to 5f should be fine. Up 6lbs too here, but we are offsetting that with the jockey's 7lb claim, so now she's got a win under her belt hopeful that confidence can see her run well here. Forced to run a little bit here as likely to go up a fair bit more for that last win. More on his plate, but in good order so Each-way chance.

Piranhadrama 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
14:10, Windsor

Ran well for much of the race last time, but didn't see out the 6f trip, so the drop back to 5f should be a help. Just looking for some improvement not on the turf.

Iconic Muddle    WINNER! winner

Solid effort from Gary's horse.


Mon 12th Apr 2021
14:00, Huntingdon

We were pleased with his debut run over fences at Warwick last time out. That came in December so back from a small break here, but is well at home and won't mind the better ground. A pound lower that last time and has schooled well at home since. Should have every chance, with the in-form Powerstown Park to beat, but that horse continues to rise up the ratings so that gives us hope.

What A Glance 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
13:30, Huntingdon

Windy, as he's known at home, has run perfectly well this season so far and he should fare better now he is handicapped, this is his first run in a handicap. Windy can be a keen horse so hopefully there will be a strong gallop around here, as it’s a boys race it should be the case, so he can settle and finish his race well. Windy will eventually want further than this once he relaxes properly in a race, he’s generally a good jumper. He'd come here with each-way chances.
San Pedro De Senam 
Mon 12th Apr 2021
13:00, Huntingdon

Ran well to be a fair fourth at Newbury last time out - similar race here and off the same mark so should have every chance of going well. Has improved at home for that last run too and is running at a track he's won at in the past. Well at home and we'd like to think he's got a decent chance here today.

Spitfire Girl    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Jamie.


Sun 11th Apr 2021
17:30, Plumpton

Is out of a black type winning mare and a half sister to some useful horses. She goes well at home and certainly has the ability to feature today. We've had 36 bumper runners this season and an impressive 64% of them have been in the top three so she shouldn't be too far away today.

Counteract    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner for us this week.


Sun 11th Apr 2021
16:55, Plumpton

Put up a good performance to win comfortably at Wincanton on his first start over fences and on better ground. Up 10lbs for that and this is a stronger race, with two others looking well in. However, we are still well-handicapped ourselves and at the right end of the weights - if handling the tighter track. Has come out of his last race well and likely to put up another good performance today.

Chimes Of Dylan

16:00, Warwick

A couple of thirds in last runs, but been well back both times. We've given him 3 months off since and in here 3lbs lower now, but is a tricky horse to get right. The quicker ground will be more in his favour though and think he's worth another crack over this longer trip. Cheekpieces are also on for the first time and having won off an 8lb lower mark before then certainly capable in a race like this. Small Each-way chance, but - as I say - he's a tricky customer to get right.

Three Bullet Gate 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
16:00, Warwick

Fancy Shapes 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
15:28, Warwick

Has shaped with promise in four career runs to date - not been out since October, but has been waiting for the better ground. Mares only race here and down a few pounds from her last run helps. Should have more to come and will like conditions - will improve for the run, being she's had 5 months off, but no shock if she snuck into a place.

Lill Smith 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
15:28, Warwick

15 race maiden but has shown glimmers of form when trained in Ireland. Should also be much more at home on the better ground today and we've had her wind operated on since her last run. 6lbs lower than last time and the jockey can claim 7lbs too so a lot better off this time too. Cheekpieces to help her settle and in a competitive race hopeful of better and small e/w chance. 

Neff 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
15:20, Plumpton

Back from a 3 month break, but looks a nice race to get going again for him. Will be fine on the ground and has run well here in the past. Might just improve for this, but has been doing plenty of work at home and only 5 other runners. The Newland runner the obvious call as the danger but we are looking forward to a decent run back and probably one of our better chances on the day.

Twenty Twenty 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
14:45, Plumpton

Second runner in this race for us. Another that will have the Skelton horse to beat, but will also enjoy the return here to Plumpton. Won here back in Jan and Tom Cheeseman gets on well with him, but likely to be playing for places too.

Cheque En Blanc 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
14:45, Plumpton

Another Skelton horse looks the one to beat again here, but the return to Plumpton here for Cheque En Blanc will be a plus. Ignore the last run as that was back over hurdles and didn’t enjoy it – is back over fences here today. More needed as 7lb higher than when winning at Fontwell in Feb, but okay on the better ground and we help with the weight rise with Niall riding to claim 5lbs – therefore, only 2lbs higher than recent win. E/w claims, but only 6 runners (2 places).

Optimistic Bias 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
14:45, Plumpton

The better ground and small field will be to his liking here today. Down a pound from last time, when down the field at Southwell. Overall record is not too shabby, with 12 top three finishes from 26 runs. Philip's 7lb claim a plus too so a chance of hitting the top three, but a lot depends on how the Skelton horse (fav) goes I guess.

Touchthesoul    WINNER! winner

Another fair run from Gary's 6 year-old.


Sun 11th Apr 2021
14:15, Plumpton

Proving a bit frustrating as certainly has the ability to win a race like this over hurdles. That said, has still been running well in similar races this season and looks to have another decent chance of getting off the mark over hurdles. Track experience last time will help and in a race that seems to rest between us and three other horses. Is starting to look a bit exposed now, but should still not be far away. The Skelton and Teal horses look the obvious ones though.

Megamegawhitething 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
14:15, Plumpton

Hasn't run for a long while after picking up an injury in a point-to-point bumper. He is flat bred and so the question will be his stamina, but he goes quite well at home. He loves his jumping and if he stays he should be able to win some race over hurdles. This doesn't look a strong race though, so he could outrun his long odds.

Walk In The Wild 
Sun 11th Apr 2021
13:50, Warwick

Wilfred - as he's known at home - is a big backward horse who has steadily improved with each run, culminating in a decent third on his most recent outing. His jumping has also got better with each race which is good because he was so flippant when we first began schooling him he had to go off to the Laura Collet correction school for a week. She worked her magic and he’s been much better since. Wilfred is a long way from the finished article and with his size and scope his future will eventually be over fences. Small e/w chance, but the Fergal O'Brien horse sets the standard.
Catesby 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

Pleasing debut run at Southwell (3rd of 6). Wasn't the best away that day either so would have learned a lot from that too. Wolverhampton might suit him better and will gain more experience here, but probably one to note once getting a handicap mark, with the Cox runner - Churchill Bay - setting a fair standard.

Heers Sadie 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

Is having her second start here. She has improved for her first run and will be suited by the drop to 6f. She will outrun her odds here and will be worth following when handicapped.

Gleneaglet 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
18:15, Wolverhampton

Gleneaglet ran well on debut where is looked at one point like she might take a hand in the finish. She didn’t get home that day so we have dropped in trip and that should help. She is also well drawn.

Bells Of Barnack 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
17:30, Newcastle

Hard to get excited after last run, but will be better for that with that coming off a 245-day break. Trying him over the longer trip too and feel the visor will help. Lightly-raced still though so hopeful he'll have more to offer, but need to see improvement on the track first.

Hogans Height 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
17:15, Aintree

Hogan's Height took his form to a different level when encountering the Grand National fences for the first time when bolting up in the Grand Sefton in 2019. The Grand National has always been the plan since that win. Obviously the National didn't happen last year, so we've been working back from this edition. He's needed both his runs this season, and should strip an awful lot fitter this time..... but he'll need a lot of luck in running. Let's keep dreaming it could happen!!!

Blue Beret    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Sat 10th Apr 2021
17:05, Wolverhampton

Small quite neat filly who has hinted at ability and probably capable in this sort of race. Will stay further in time and not without a chance if handling the conditions.

Harrier Hawk 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
17:05, Wolverhampton

Harrier Hawk runs in the 5.05pm at Wolverhampton over 1m1f. She showed some promise last year and was a little out of sorts on handicap debut when she didn't show her complete promise. She seems in good form at home and this looked a logical place to start her off. Karl Burke's and Roger Charlton's runners look the likely dangers. She has drawn wide in 7 and Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Vivency 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:55, Lingfield Park

Been in great form of late - has a small break of a few months after some good runs at Kempton at the turn of the year. Down a pound from her last run and Connor rides to take off 3lbs here. First run at Lingfield, but a fair draw in 3 and in a tight little race feel we come here with as good a chance as any.

Nawafeth 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:55, Lingfield Park

Nawafeth is on the process of making me look like an idiot because she works great at home but has shown little on the track. She shows a lot of speed at home so perhaps I have had her trip wrong and therefore hopefully the drop to 7f will suit. She is well drawn which helps.

Akkapenko 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:45, Newcastle

Will be much better for his recent run at Southwell after 3 months off and the better ground will be in his favour too. Probably a small bit to prove still off this mark, but with conditions to suit certainly hopeful of a lot better than last time. Each-way chance.

Ajrad 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:25, Lingfield Park

Ajrad runs in the 4.25pm at Lingfield over 7f. He has some strong form behind him last year in good novice company and looks to be in good form at home going into his opening run. The race looks a nice option for him with Lafan of Richard Hannon's who showed plenty of promise first time out the horse to beat on paper. We have drawn in the middle in 5 and Jim Crowley takes the ride.

Kilfilum Cross 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:15, Aintree

Didn't run too bad in the Kim Muir last time - just getting tired in the final half a mile or so. 3lbs lower in the ratings here and we get in with just 10-4 in weight so that helps. Putting the blinkers on to sharpen him up and will love the ground. Stays this trip well and even though a bit to prove at the moment no shock if he ran better than odds suggest.

Twasnt The Plan 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
16:00, Chepstow

Still to win a race from 19 starts and poor the last twice. Continues to drop down the handicap though and down another 5lbs here from last time. Will also enjoy the better ground more and has run well over this CD in the past. Deserves to get his head in front at some stage, but wins-to-runs record tells it's own story. Recent winner - Young O'Leary - the obvious call.

 

Sherpa Trail 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
15:50, Lingfield Park

Nervous sort of horse who has some fair form but only lightly raced and comes with risks attached. Probably wants further but this is a low grade affair and top rider at least knows him well from the past.

Viaduct 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
15:15, Lingfield Park

Not shown much in three runs since joining the yard, but the return to Lingfield will help and we are also eased in grade here. Hopeful of better, but needs to show more on the track to be more confident.

Speedy Choice 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
14:10, Chepstow

Disappointed with her lack of effort last time when pulled up at Huntingdon. Down 5lbs for that so looking for at least a better effort today, but we'd just be happy with a move forward from last time.

Outrage 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
14:00, Lingfield Park

Seems to have really taken to this track having won his last two starts here. Slightly up in class as a result and always needs a bit of luck in-running but should remain competitive

Duke Of Firenze    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to win for the Griffiths yard.


Sat 10th Apr 2021
14:00, Lingfield Park

Ran okay at Musselburgh last time - better than positions suggested as was a bit unlucky in the race being short of room. Back on the AW here and dropped a pound helps, plus the useful Laura Pearson booked to ride to claim 5lbs. Remains in good shape and being there is pace in the race that will suit his hold-up style.

Stoney Mountain 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:45, Aintree

Stoney Mountain was a decent handicap hurdler - he won a Grade 3 at Haydock, and is two from two at Aintree. He didn't jump well when 3rd in a novice chase on his only start this season and came back with a nasty cut that day. Given time to recover and back over hurdles here, we should see him run well in this competitive affair.

Imphal 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:35, Chepstow

Disappointed a bit last time here - just didn't settle too well and faded up the straight. We feel he's better than that though, while he's dropped 3lbs too. Will need to settle a bit better, but in a similar race would be no shock if he left that last run behind. Josh rides.

Kilchreest Moon    WINNER! winner

Led home a TQ 1-2 for the Oliver yard.


Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:35, Chepstow

Returned to form last time at Hereford with a fair second. Had a light racing weight that day and does do again here (10-2), while the drop back in trip will be a plus after just running out of petrol over 2 furlongs longer last time. Only second run for us after coming from the Christian Williams yard. If building slightly on that last race will go well.

Terri Rules 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:25, Lingfield Park

A horse we know a lot about - been with us several times. Had four runs back with us this season and gone close a few times. Drawn well in 1, but often likes to come from off the pace so will need the breaks to come. BUt likes it here and the drop back to 5f is fine. Should be thereabouts.

Fairy Fast 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:25, Lingfield Park

2lbs lower than last time and we've got Rhys riding here today too to claim 5lbs. But does need a step forward from recent runs and drawn wide in 8 doesn't help. Might just need the run too after 3 months off.

Waikiki Waves 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
13:00, Chepstow

Won well at Leicester at the end of last season - that came off a 5lb lower mark, but after a small break ran well off this rating at Taunton last month (2nd). Trip and ground will pose no issues and should have every chance of getting in the shake-up.

Back from a break after losing his way a bit and having a few problems - hence the time out. Nice to get back going with him and at least he gets back on a fair mark - especially with Charlie's 5lb claim too. Will love the ground and gone well off a break in the past so small e/w chance, but not matter what will improve for the run.

Maazel 
Sat 10th Apr 2021
12:55, Lingfield Park

Course winner here and after running on well over his first try over 1m4f last time here, we are upping in trip again here (2m). Dropped a pound and low racing weight helps - bit of a fact-finding mission but likes the track and will hopefully open some doors if he proves himself over the trip.

Millicent 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
20:10, Kempton Park

A horse that came to us from the James Tate yard so first run for us here today. Not been out since July 20 and only had 4 career runs too. Has settled in well, but we'll find out more here tonight as she's also stepping up to a mile for the first time.

Hector Loza    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Fri 9th Apr 2021
18:40, Kempton Park

Well handicapped these days though not certain to be suited by a drop back in trip. Is inclined to over race and get excited in the preliminaries and needs a confidence booster. Well drawn and top jockey booked so can't be easily discounted.

Thermal 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race. Needs to overcome the draw in 10, but should be more at home back on the AW after running below par in soft ground at Nottingham last Oct. Had a nice break over the winter and should have more to offer around this level. Rhys takes off 5lbs too and the horse has run well at the track before, but feel might just need this back after the time off.

Savitar 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

Returned last time here with a cracking second after not being the best away. Up in trip here from 1m to 1m3f is the biggest question mark, but ran on well last time to suggest it's worth a crack. Jockey also helps by taking off 3lbs. Draw not great in 12, but hoping over this longer trip he'll get the breaks. Small e/w chance, but the favourite might be hard for us all to beat.

Stormingin    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Gary - a neck second at 50/1!


Fri 9th Apr 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

Nice draw in 4 helps. Ran okay to be 5th of 10 at Lingfield last time out in a similar race, yet to win from 10 tries on the AW though, and often placed more than he wins overall. Jockey helps with his 7lb claim - is also only his sixth career ride, but a useful rider. The horse is well and actually of my two in the race - even though this might be the bigger price - I think can run the better.

Celestial Bliss 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
18:10, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us and has the more to prove from my two. Only third run for us so still finding out about him and trying him up in trip and in the first-time blinkers here so see if that opens up a few more options. But just be happy with a step forward.

Dew You Believe 
Fri 9th Apr 2021

16:22, Sedgefield

Did well a few years ago but has lost his way a bit of late. Down another 5lbs in the handicap helps though and trying to get some confidence back now over hurdles. Seems well at home and for the 4 month break. The average race gives us am e/w squeak and certainly well handicapped on old form - just needs to recapture it.

Court Master 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
16:05, Aintree

Improving chaser that's now won 4 of his 8 runs over fences when going in at Kelso last time out. Up 5lbs for that, but means we get into this better race with only 10st! Yes, we are 2lbs out of the handicap but that is fine. First run over the fences, but we feel he'll love them and is on the main a good jumper. Will also thrive on the good ground. This is a big step up, but Brendan knows the horse well and he's a good jumper, who if he gets in a rhythm could run a big race - stays well.

Take Em Out 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
15:47, Sedgefield

No great shakes the last twice, but has had a few problems and only been out twice since 2019. Will be better for last run at Southwell when needing the run after the break. Down 3lbs helps and also into an easier race. Will love the better ground too and hopeful the longer trip will be fine. A lot of weight (12-1) but doesn't look a great race, so that will give us an e/w chance

Amazing Red    WINNER! winner

Fri 9th Apr 2021

The horse to beat on paper is Boss Power of Sir Michael Stoute’s who was impressive last time out and I feel will be hard to beat even with a 5lb penalty. Amazing Red is in good form and should run well. Mark Crehan takes the ride claiming 5lb.

Lovely horse that's done well since going hurdling - winning twice. Ran well behind the useful My Drogo at Kelso last time (2nd) in a Grade Two - the form of that race looks decent and after just getting a bit tired in the closing stages the drop back in trip here will help. Will be fine on the flatter track and the ground too. Tough race, being a Grade One - but his form all season is solid and think he is too big a price - should run well.

Chapmanshype 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
13:45, Aintree

Chapmanshype has won 7 of his 14 career starts, so he knows how to win! He's off a career high mark here of 146, so he needs to keep improving, as he's carrying a lot of weight. He loves good ground, and is fresh and well, so he should run his race but will need plenty of luck in running.

Thistle Do Nicely 
Fri 9th Apr 2021
13:45, Aintree

Thistle Do Nicely will be a massive price after 18 months off the track, and it’s a big ask in a Grade 3 on his comeback run.....but he’s not missed a days work and the handicapper has given him a chance off 130 (was rated 136 before his injury), and some of that form looks pretty good now, with Dashel Drasher winning a Grade 1 earlier this season. Certainly worth an each way chance!

Byzantia 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
18:20, Chelmsford

Won on her final start for John Gosden and has moved to mine looking fantastic. Small question mark over the step up in trip but Golden Horn seems to be a strong stamina influence. Her work has also been good.

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Great call from Julia.


Thu 8th Apr 2021
17:50, Chelmsford

Won well last week and went up 7lbs which was a bit harsh so we have to go here today under a penalty, but this is a lower grade than last week and she will not qualify for this grade again. She is a big filly so can carry the weight. She seems to have come out of the race well and hopefully will follow up that win.

Headley George 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
17:50, Chelmsford

Had a good Winter and finally got his head in front over track and trip last time in a low-grade affair. This is a slight step up but not much depth so should be thereabouts if he continues to progress. Seems in good shape.

Shattered Glass 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:55, Taunton

Ran well at Market Rasen two runs ago (2nd), but ran flat last time out at Exeter and no real reason for that. Had a month off since to freshen up and seems well for it. Conditions are fine and would have every chance if putting that last run behind him.

Apollinaris 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:50, Chelmsford

Not much chance last two starts but this 7f probably suits him best. Needs a strong pace to aim at and everything to fall right but could go well at a big price.

Editeur Du Gite    WINNER! winner

Top winner at Aintree for Gary and the team.


Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:40, Aintree

Delighted with his win at Newbury last time out - up 7lbs for that, but in this better race we get in with a lovely racing weight of just 10st 9lbs. He's come out of that race very well and will love the ground and track. Very competitive contest, but we feel he'll love the Aintree track too and should make a bold bid from the front again - hopefully he'll be hard to pass again and we feel we come here with slightly more than just an e/w chance.

Cool Spirit    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:25, Southwell

CD winner and should hopefully find this easier now into a Classified Stakes race, seeing he is one of the joint top-rated in the field too. Needs to find some old form, but only fourth run for us since joining the yard so hopeful there is more to come - small chance of hitting the frame, but taking on two in-form recent winners here.

Right Hand Of God 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:15, Taunton

Killaro Boy 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
16:05, Aintree

In good order at home and will love the Spring ground. Ran well off a long break last time at Leicester, when third in a Hunter Chase at Leicester behind Cat Tiger. Take that horse on again here, but 3lbs better off and will be better for that run. The horse also has experience over the fences after running 8th in the Grand Sefton here in Dec 19. Good jockey booked (Zac Baker) for a race like this too and granted a clear round would have e/w claims.

Fine Wine 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
15:15, Southwell

First run for us - a nice horse that has won twice over in France. Shows plenty of speed at home and the fiberesand should suit well having won with give underfoot on the turf. Helping with Jonathan's claim, but we'll know more about his handicap mark after today and no matter what likely to improve for the run after around 9 months off.

Motdepas 
Thu 8th Apr 2021
14:30, Taunton

Ran well here the last day, when 5th of 16. Dropped a few pounds for that helps and looks to be getting the hang of things based on that last run. Will also be better over this slightly shorter trip after not quite seeing out the 2m3f last time. Should not be far away, with a solid e/w chance.

Helm Rock    WINNER! winner

Step forward here for this Kubler runner.

 


Thu 8th Apr 2021
14:10, Southwell

A big scopey horse who has been gelded over the winter, he ran well for a long way at Newbury on debut on heavy ground last year before tiring late on. He is just ready to start out again this season we're hopeful he can develop into a nice sort in time as he gains experience.

Money Honey 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
19:15, Newcastle

Only had three career runs, but has been getting better by the race. Last time was an improved fifth and only beaten 3 1/4 lengths. Not qualifies for handicaps and we'll find out about her mark today, but we are helping her by also having a 7lbs claimer on today. Has improved again at home too. First run at the track, but should suit so not without an e/w chance here.

Cosmelli 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
17:45, Newcastle

Likes it up here at Newcastle and has won over this course and distance in the past too off this mark. James Doyle a top jockey booking and we are reapplying the blinkers today to replace the visor and mix it up a bit. We do have a bit to find with Rare Groove though, who finished in front of us last time, so does have a bit to answer. But is in good form at home, will run his race and we feel we can get closer this time.

Ivynator 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
17:10, Nottingham

Ivynator won nicely at Newcastle at the end of last year and has had a holiday over the winter. Step up in trip will suit him and the ground should be lovely. I am surprised by his price.

Apollinaris 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
16:35, Lingfield Park

Sea Of Charm 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Yet to win, but only had five career runs and shown a fair level of form on the AW. Tried a mile last time but didn't quite last home so the drop back to 7f here will help. Down another 2lbs here will help and a nice draw in 1. Well at home and not without an e/w chance now into a fillies' only race.

Corazon Espinado    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Wed 7th Apr 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Good record here and ran as good as ever in a better race here over this trip on Saturday. Wide draw yet again no help but should be thereabouts if Saturday's efforts have not taken their toll.

Visibility 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:40, Nottingham

Ran better than finishing position suggested last time at Doncaster - was only beaten 4 lengths in the end and that was after messing up the start (reared). Down a pound and Jonathan is able to claim his 5lbs here as the last race was an apprentice contest - so 6lbs better off. Drop back in trip is fine and with just three runs on the grass should have more to come on the turf. Open race though, so advice would be each-way claims.

Billhilly    WINNER! winner

Powered home for the Fellowes yard.


Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:40, Nottingham

Billhilly has been gelded since he last ran and had a holiday. This is a fact-finding mission today as we are dropping back in trip significantly but he has been showing a lot of speed at home. He has a good draw though so at least that helps.

Roca Magica 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:30, Lingfield Park

She was a little disappointing last time out where she travelled well and found very little off the bridle in the finals two furlongs. This looks a more suitable option for her and we have decided to take a little weight off her back with the use of 5lb claimer Mark Crehan. The one to beat on paper looks to be Emerald Fox of Patrick Chamings who has been very consistent of late.

Prince Rock    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Simon.


Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:30, Lingfield Park

Wide passage last time on return after a minor injury. Well drawn today and back down in grade so highly likely to be involved at a big price though the race will bring him on again.

First Connection 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:10, Nottingham

is ready to run and will be fit for his debut. This track should suit him but it looks a decent race. We will ride him patiently and get him to finish.

Song Two 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
14:10, Nottingham

Song Two ran much better than his finishing position suggested at Nottingham last year. He has done well for a winter in his back and is ready to run. He could out run his odds.

Avorisk Et Perils    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary and the team.


Wed 7th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

A nice second here over this course and distance last time. Gets in off the same mark and should have a similar chance. Only negative is the wide draw in 14, so certainly not going to be easy from there. But does like to come from a bit off the pace - it's just if the breaks open up for her!

The Warrior 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

Experienced performer that is having his 83rd career run here today. Had a small break since a good spell in Feb, winning once here over this trip. Up 4lbs from that but ran okay off this mark last time over a mile here and certainly still well-treated on old form. Likes to come from off the pace, so will need a bit of luck in-running - being a hold-up performer and draw 10, therefore, not totally ideal, but hopefully he can get the breaks to overcome it. Not one to totally rely on as depends what mood he's in on the day, but certainly capable of going well here and has been well at home for his break and of our two in the race is slightly preferred. Each-way.

Recuerdame 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

Has won over 10f at Chelmsford and not really run to his best here before but worth another try now he is a bit older. Has had a good Winter and no surprise to see him get back on an even curve if things go right for him.

Dove Divine 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

A nice draw in 3 helps and would have come on for her last run as it came off a 6 month break. Had some niggles since coming to us from the Hughie Morrison yard but has shown ability in the past. Drop back in grade will help and we feel the step up to 1m2f is a plus, but overall just looking for an improved effort and feel she can show that today and should run better.

Pablo Del Pueblo 
Wed 7th Apr 2021
13:00, Lingfield Park

Too free on both starts so far and needs to learn to settle and get his confidence. Will have more chance once he is handicapped. 

Nawafeth 
Tue 6th Apr 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

I am still no closer to knowing Nawafeth's optimum trip, than I was when she joined the yard. She scoped badly after her last race at Wolves, which explained the poor showing. Her work since has been very good and she looks fantastic, so that gives us hope of a better run today.

Paseo    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Oliver's horse.


Tue 6th Apr 2021
14:50, Exeter

Paseo was pretty disappointing last Autumn and because he can’t handle soft ground - since then he’s had a good long break in anticipation of a spring campaign so heads here fresh and well. He loves his jumping and will like conditions so even though he's likely to come on for this run, he can still run a solid race.
King Cool 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
17:25, Plumpton

Not badly-treated on old form but is now a 10 year-old. Course winner here too and will be fine on the quicker ground. Needed the run last time after a break and was over a trip a bit on the short side. Step back up to 3m1f here will be fine but does look very competitive for the grade so hopefuly rather than confident.

Rainbow Storm 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
17:25, Plumpton

Rainbow unfortunately unseated at the first hurdle on his handicap debut two weeks ago, it was one of those silly mistakes where he skewed mid air. He continued on riderless with the field and jumped every hurdle afterwards perfectly well. Rainbow goes well enough at home and this trip will suit him, he’s a thorough galloper with a likeable, honest attitude. Be delighted with a step in the right direction here and go from there.
Strike The Flint 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
17:25, Plumpton

Needs a sound surface and 3m is likely her trip. Just a question of whether she settles enough early on, but if she does is likely to go well.

16:45, Wolverhampton

Bolt N Brown    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
16:25, Plumpton

Has run some fair races at Huntingdon over the sticks - runs here at Plumpton for the first time and in here off a pound lower mark than last time, but a much lower racing weight - is 8lbs lower than last time. Will enjoy the faster ground too and track should be fine. Jamie, who has ridden her for the last two times remains in the saddle. Would have an e/w chance.

Howdilyoudo 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
16:25, Plumpton

Howdilyoudo was placed in a bumper and two novice hurdles where she showed some promise. She disappointed on handicap debut but she didn't appear to handle the mud. Back off a break on a drier surface, she should be able to improve further, and there is no reason to believe she won't be involved at the business end of the race.

Perfect Inch 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
16:02, Kempton Park

Perfect Inch ran well in Dubai without troubling the judge. This looks a weaker affair and she seems in good form at home. She has run well at the track in the past too.

The Flying Sofa    WINNER! winner

Another place for this horse.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:55, Plumpton

Very consistent performer that is a course winner here in the past. Acts well on the good ground and back to a fair mark. Into a better race here, but as a result only has 10-8 to carry. Heads here with a leading chance, but the only niggle being he’s probably got a little bit to prove at this longer trip. Small e/w chance, but that's all really.

Gleno    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gary and a gutsy win from this horse.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:45, Chepstow

The Henderson horse is respected, but this is another of ours today that should have every chance. Just went down by ¾ of a length last time at Doncaster and gets in here off the same mark. Will be fine on the quicker ground and has had a small break (1 ½ months) to get over that last outing. Should not be far away and probably my best chance on the day outside Casa Loupi.

Juans Les Pins 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:25, Redcar

He ran well on his first start back where he did a bit too much early on and hit the line well to finish a close sixth. He has come out of this race well and we have decided to now try him on the turf for the second time in his career. The ground should be in his favour being on the quicker side and it looks a nice option for him. Tom Eaves takes the ride.

Darkest Day 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:20, Plumpton

A deserved win last time out here after a string of place finishes. Just held on that day by a neck so the 4lb rise means he’ll need another step forward here. But likes the ground and just idled a bit in front last time out. Does have a lot of weight (12-4), but doesn’t look a great race so that will help – another bold bid on the cards and should be bang there, with the Skelton horse the obvious danger.

Hit The Rocks    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:20, Plumpton

Another runner in this race for us and another with a big weight (12-5). Therefore, Niall’s 5lb claim will help on that score. Yet to win over hurdles, but has shown up well a few times to suggest he can get involved here in a very average-looking race. Each-way claims

Larry 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:10, Chepstow

Had his problems and returns from a long time off (492 days). Will, therefore, improve for this but has dropped to a fair mark and before his time off had shown good form in better races than this. This looks a nice place to get him going again but will undoubtedly improve for the run.

Soros 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
15:05, Wolverhampton

Soros made a good debut before being forced to drop back in trip which wouldn’t have suited. 12 furlongs much better but the draw has not been kind.

Kaphumor    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:45, Plumpton

Kaphumor has been disappointing since joining us after winning a point-to-point with his previous trainer.
He’s very lazy in his work and doesn’t travel in his races so the cheek pieces have been replaced by a first time visor today to see if that helps. Kaphumor is such a frustrating horse because his jumping is good and even though he’s lazy he does work ok at home. Kaphumor will be off to the sales in May, as with all of The Million In Mind horses, so we’ll just keep running him and hope he can get some form to his name.
Saturn n Silk    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Scu's horse.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:35, Chepstow

The Venetia Williams horse looked useful when winning at Huntingdon last time out and on that run and would have be hard to beat - but the good news for us is that horse is now a non-runner. Saturn and Silk has done nothing wrong in all her hurdle starts just bumping into a few to good each time but has taken on some decent mares. Has no problem with good ground, this may be a little quicker today but as long as it’s safe it shouldn’t trouble her. This is her second go at this trip which she seemed to stay well enough last time, the two that were ahead of her in the market are now out so this does look a good opportunity for her on paper.

Global Art 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:30, Wolverhampton

This will be his first run back after a break and he looks to be in good form at home. The Mark Johnston and Charlie Fellowes trained runner are the main dangers in the market. Harry Burns takes the ride.

Vanity Affair    WINNER! winner

Nice TQ View winner on the day.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:30, Wolverhampton

Vanity Affair has done decent form and looks very unexposed. I feel he is ahead of his mark still. My one concern would be the track as he can race behind the bridle which wouldn’t suit.

Waltzing 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:15, Redcar

Only third run for us since coming from the Martyn Meade camp. Yet to show much on the AW so hoping the return to the turf will help. Has only had one run on the grass (Leicester) on debut but that cam on heavy ground. Step up to a mile will also help so hoping for better today but a bit of a fact-finding mission really.

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy for this Gary Moore runner.


Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:10, Plumpton

We were disappointed that he didn’t win last time out at Stratford, when a beaten odds-on favourite. Prior to that had run the useful Tritonic second too. However, it seems the winner of that last race – Stepney Causeway - could be above-average too, after since bolting up at Stratford again (15 lengths). Better ground here is fine and the ratings suggest we are the clear one to beat. Deserves to get his head in front after three runs over hurdles and hopefully today will be his day.

Rays The One 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:10, Plumpton

Isle Of Aron 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:00, Chepstow

Nothing to shout about so far from two runs over hurdles, but had shown some form prior to that in NH Flat races. Will, however, get a handicap mark after this and will be seen in a better light after that.

West On Sunset 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
14:00, Chepstow

Mirique 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
13:45, Kempton Park

Well-bred filly that makes her debut here today, but like a lot of mine on their first run is expected to learn a lot from today. But shows plenty of speed at home, so will be fine over this 5f trip, but breeding suggests in time her future might sit over a bit further.

Krank It 
Mon 5th Apr 2021
13:40, Redcar

This looks a competitive novice and the horse to beat on paper looks to be the Simon Crisford trained Ilza'Eem who has run well on his first two starts. Krank It is in good order at home and I am hopeful he can run a nice race and come on for the run. George Wood takes the ride.

Ballydoyle 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
16:31, Plumpton

Jumping Cats 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
16:31, Plumpton

Competitive race and one of two in it for us. Both look to have similar chances so there might not be a lot between my pair. Cats has had a small break after a good spell in some NH Flat races on the AW and will love the better ground back on the turf. Only fifth run over hurdles but has improved since the last time we saw him over the sticks. Conditional jockeys’ race too, so probably not one to go overboard in, but we’ve a good pilot in Tom Cheesman, who has ridden in over 200 races, riding. Each-way.

Invicta Lake 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
16:31, Plumpton

This is definitely a better trip for him than Taunton two runs back. Ground might just be getting a bit lively for him but not without place claims. Wouldn't be particularly worried about being out of the weights.

Kapdad 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
16:00, Plumpton

Only third run over fences and even though no great shakes for far, is still learning. Josh takes over in the saddle here and dropped 5lbs by the handicapper helps. Looks a very average race too, so that must give us a chance – we are the joint top-rated in the field, so the big weight is a slight concern. The Webber horse – Eurkash – looks the one to beat though.

Fuwairt 
Sun 4th Apr 2021

Natural History 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
15:26, Plumpton

Dream Composer 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:36, Southwell

First run for the yard and first in this country after coming over from France. Only had 5 career runs over there and shown a fair level of form. Goes without saying we'll find out more today as hard to assess the form to over here, but has settled in well and having run well on the soft, we feel the fibresand will suit. Each-way chance.

Professor Galant    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Gay's horse.


Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:36, Southwell

10-race maiden. On these terms the Karl Burke horse is the clear one to beat - rated 19lbs higher than us and off level weights here. However, we should still have an e/w squeak here, being we are one of the more experienced runners in the field and we know she acts on the fibresand too.

Touchthesoul 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:26, Plumpton

Slightly disappointing last time at Fakenham after a promising run in a NH Flat race at Lingfield before that. Took a bit of a hold last time, so needs to settle better today, but is still learning his trade over hurdles. Former flat winner, so knows how to win and should be more at home on the drying ground. The Nicholls horse was a fair flat horse and is the unknown on hurdles debut, but we should be thereabouts if he can settle a tad better - looks our better chance from our two runners in the race.

Buckos Boy 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:26, Plumpton

Bucko's Boy won a bumper earlier this season, but threw away any chance on hurdling debut when depositing Page over the 2nd last when jumping out to his left.  We've done plenty of schooling since, and back on decent ground, he'd have a chance of adding another win to his CV but again, there are a couple of interesting opponents too.

Kost A Coat 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:26, Plumpton

Lightning Bug 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
14:26, Plumpton

Should have strengthened up a bit but has a tendency to run a bit free. Realistically will need to run in handicaps though to be more competitive.

Right Hand Of God    WINNER! winner

Each-way effort from Gary's horse.


Sun 4th Apr 2021
13:56, Plumpton

Yet to get off the mark from 9 runs, but has shown a fair level of form around this grade. Third last time at Fontwell and down a pound for that helps. The drying ground should help and has at least got a fair bit of track experience. Decent chance to get off the mark in a poor race, but would have the Seamus Mullins runner – En Coeur – as the clear one to beat.

College Oak 
Sun 4th Apr 2021
13:20, Plumpton

College Oak has been fairly progressive this season having won a maiden hurdle, and a handicap at Ascot.  He got bogged down in the mud through the depth of the winter, and should appreciate being back on some good ground, although he'd not want it quicker!  He only carries one penalty as one of his wins was in a conditional jockeys' race, and we're taking 5lbs off today.  He certainly looks to have a chance here although there are a couple of main dangers.

Olivers Pursuit 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
20:30, Wolverhampton

CD winner here and wasn't far away here last time in a Claimer - seems to like the track. Back into a handicap here with a fair draw in 6, would probably need a career-best with last win coming off 2lbs lower, but George gets on well with the horse and can claim 5lbs here too so that helps. As I say, might just be in the handicapper's grip at the moment, but should be competitive.

The Dawn Man 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
18:00, Newton Abbot

Stayed on last time when 4th at Uttoxeter, albeit beaten a far way. Has become very frustrating since winning first time out for us hoping that some better ground works the miracle but not one to put a huge amount of confidence in.

Court Glory 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
17:05, Carlisle

Average race, so that would give us a chance. 16lbs lower than handicap debut three runs ago and we are 5lbs lower than last time, when down the field at Hereford. Track should suit better and the longer trip is a plus too. Horses are going well, so that gives us some hope of an improved run here today, but overall has been largely disappointing and had her problems so would need to show more here today.

Valletta Sunset 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:49, Wolverhampton

Valletta Sunset has been so frustrating he works better than he has shown on the racetrack, he is up in trip here in a weak race and Sam knows him very well, just hoping that the distance will show some improvement even though he’s not bred for it.

Caltex    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Scu.


Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:33, Carlisle

Another who won first time out and hasn’t quite reached that height since has run some solid enough races in defeat this season going back hurdling didn’t work last time so back over fences today Luca Morgan takes of 7lb so running of his lowest mark for years in what doesn’t look a deep contest if he can recapture some old form should be competitive.

Western Climate 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:25, Haydock

12 years-old now and into a Veterans race here today. Stays further than this 3m1f trip so that will be fine and the ground is okay too - acts on most. Our horses seem in good overall form at the moment too and in a race that we are taking on similar old timers then must have a small e/w squeak, with proven stamina in his locker.

Compadre    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:25, Haydock

Won last time over fences and hopefully can get back to form in this spere. Goes well this time of year with drying ground and has e/w chance in tight heat.

West Lake 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:15, Newton Abbot

Former winning Pointer. But yet to get off the mark under rules. Not getting any younger at 11 years-old and even though he took a bit of a step forward last time when third at Plumpton, he was still a fair way back. 2lbs lower here and the drop in trip will help after getting tired last time over 3m1f. Will also like the better ground as Point wins mainly came on good ground. Still more needed though to get involved in what looks a better race than last time. Small e/w

Duke Of Firenze 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
16:11, Musselburgh

Popular 12 year-old that is still loving his racing at the right level. Been running well on the AW this winter so hoping he'll be fitter than most too. Small 3 week break to freshen up for this and in really good shape at home. Has run well at the track many times in the past and returns to the turf on a fair mark. Competitive, but Graham Lee has built up a good understanding of the horse and is back in the saddle too. Expect his normal late run from off the pace and if the breaks come then certainly has a decent e/w chance.

Northern Beau 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
15:50, Haydock

Consistent mare that rarely runs a bad race. Last seen going down by just 1/2 a length at Southwell (did nothing wrong) but despite going up 2lbs for that, this better race means we've got 7lbs less racing weight to carry. Took well to the visor last time too so that remains on and regular jockey Brendan Powell rides. Drying ground will help her, plus the slightly longer trip will be fine too. Likes to get on with things from the front and even though nothing in-hand from the handicapper another bold bid up top expected and should have a fair e/w chance. The Bay Birch won this race the last time it was run so has to be feared.

Oriental Cross 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
15:50, Haydock

Might be a big ask up in grade but we are trying to help her weight so in this better race has just 10-4 to carry. This will be the lightest weight she's had since going jumping and Charlie can also take a further 5lbs off. Trip and ground are fine, while on her fourth at Taunton two runs ago would have a small e/w chance.

Republican    WINNER! winner

Place money landed.


Sat 3rd Apr 2021
15:15, Haydock

Republican began the season over fences where he ran with credit on both occasions and jumped very well.
He was carrying a lot of weight on his second outing at Fontwell on heavy ground and it just left its mark, he went quiet on me, so I gave him a good break over Christmas and into the new year. Republican returned to action again in February and because of the time frame I decided to revert back to hurdles and start afresh novice chasing next season, with another summer on his back I think he’ll make up into a nice chaser. Republican is a thorough stayer who will handle most ground conditions, he’s been in good form again at home lately and because of his honest nature he will give a good account. Open race and small place claims, but just be happy with a step forward here.
Exodela 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
15:15, Haydock

Exod'ela won off a mark of 119 in the spring of last year, and has run well off 125 when only beaten 3 lengths at Cheltenham in the autumn, and when 2nd off that mark at Bangor in a series qualifier. Things haven't fallen right for him since, and he comes here off a mark of 120, and with a bit of luck in running, he has the ability to run into a place in this valuable series final.

Dorking Lad    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Gary and the team.


Sat 3rd Apr 2021
15:05, Newton Abbot

Ran well for a long way in a much better race last time at Sandown so this ease in grade and drop in trip will be a big help and hopefully we’ve found the right race for him to now get off the mark after three seconds prior to that last run. Ground is fine and track will suit. Should be hard to beat and we’d be very disappointed if he can’t open his account.

Ruby Yeats 
Sat 3rd Apr 2021
13:00, Haydock

Been running okay this year – winning well at Exeter three runs back and that wasn’t disgraced in third last time at Plumpton with a big weight. Dropped a pound for that here and in this harder race has 8lbs less in racing weight to carry. Acts on any ground, but goes without saying a rise in class still so a place might be the best we can hope from her.

Toro Dorado 
Fri 2nd Apr 2021
17:40, Chelmsford

He ran well last start  when beaten by a progressive horse of Archie Watsons to finish second. He has come out of this race well and is in good form at home. This looks a good option for him with the one to beat on paper looking to be Margaret Dumont of Hugo Palmer’s. Richard Kingscote takes the ride.

Corazon Espinado 
Fri 2nd Apr 2021
17:15, Lingfield Park

Winner here this Winter in a much lower grade but under today's rider. No chance last time from wide draw when caught wide the whole way round. Again berthed in the car park and will need luck in-running but may well outrun his odds.

Via Serendipity 
Fri 2nd Apr 2021
16:45, Lingfield Park

Via ran flat last time out but had been on the go for a very long time and looked like he needed a break. Since then, he has had 3 weeks in a paddock and a clear run into this race. If you can forgive that run then he looks massively over priced on the form of his previous 2 races where he gave a stone to Beckett’s horse and was beaten a neck by Varian’s horse.

Beat The Breeze    WINNER! winner

Another solid run from Simon's horse.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
19:20, Chelmsford

Had a good Winter and looked liked there was still more to come last start. Worth a try at this trip with regular rider though looks to have a strong favourite to aim at. Seems in good form.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gay's horse.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
18:50, Chelmsford

Nice draw in stall 3 and dropped 4lbs from his last run here when down the field. Pulled a bit too hard that day so will need to settle better here. Slight ease in grade will help but still 2lbs higher than last win so even though we expect a solid run, with an e/w chance, will probably need a career-best here to actually win.

Mungos Quest 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
18:20, Chelmsford

Needs to get his confidence but has plenty of ability and this is about his trip. Will be a big outsider but might outrun his odds and should get started on an upward curve soon.

Cherokee Bill 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
17:42, Ffos Las

Yet to win a race from 23 starts, but has been placed many times. Delighted with his run last time at Uttoxeter (3rd) - down 3lbs for that helps and we are into an easier class too. Has come out of that race well and should have every chance with no issues surrounding trip, ground or track. Decent e/w chance.

Floral Bouquet 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
17:10, Ffos Las

Floral Bouquet is making her seasonal reappearance today, and so will undoubtedly improve for the run, but she goes well fresh and is in good form at home. She'll love the track and the ground, but might be a tad too high in the handicap to have a winning opportunity.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:50, Chelmsford

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Julia.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:50, Chelmsford

Is well suited by this CD - she has been running consistently all winter and seems well at home. A good draw here so we hope she has a good e/w chance.

Cafe Milano 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:50, Chelmsford

Long term maiden but often takes minor honours and ran with promise yet again last time. Needs a good gallop to aim at which he should get here and ran well enough in a similar at this track here earlier in the Winter. Had plenty of racing and hard to recommend but has to go in one day.

Filles De Fleur 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:50, Chelmsford

Second runner in the race for us - is a past course winner here and is back down to last winning mark after some average efforts of late. Does have a small bit to prove over this trip, with only career win coming over 7f, but has gone close over 1m4f in the past so we know she stays it okay. Small e/w chance.

Seaston Spirit 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:37, Ffos Las

We took Seaston Spirit out of a race the other day when the ground firmed up and that will be the situation if the much-needed rain stays away. That said, It would be an ideal race for him under satisfactory conditions and should go well if that's the case.

Dominateur 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:37, Ffos Las

Dominateur has had a frustrating season so far, pulling up last time at Sandown. We're trying first-time cheek-pieces if he makes it to the track and will be looking for a revival.

Tallow For Coal 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
16:07, Ffos Las

Hard To Forget    WINNER! winner

Cracking winner for Henry.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
15:40, Uttoxeter

Struggled a bit the last day over further so the drop back in trip will help and is 3lbs lower here too - doesn't seem to be putting it all in as we know he's better than that. That was, however, only his first run back since a wind op and the visor is on today for the first time to help. Ground okay and not badly treated on old form, having won off a 7lb higher rating in the past. Each-way chance in an average race, but is a horse that does come with a few risks

Lord Getaway    WINNER! winner

A 1-2 for the TQ yards.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
15:40, Uttoxeter

Back from a break but can go well fresh. Sure to be a strong pace on today (will suit) - stays well and if his jumping holds up would have an e/w chance.

Pebbly New Moon 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
15:30, Ffos Las

With the change in the weather, the worry is that even Ffos Las which always seems to catch the rain might be unsuitable for our three entries today, all of which require softish conditions. If the ground is deemed unsuitable none will run. Pebbly New Moon was unlucky to click heels on the home bend last time and must have a chance here if taking up the engagement.

Animal 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
15:10, Uttoxeter

Handicap debut and has shown enough on his Kempton third to be competitive here. Up in trip which shouldn't be a problem if settles early. Better ground should also suit and the course will be fine. Should be in the mix despite topweight.

Compadre 
Thu 1st Apr 2021

Copper Coin    WINNER! winner

Top call from Scu


Thu 1st Apr 2021
14:50, Wetherby

Gutsy win at Huntingdon last time out (chase) - that was made the better as didn't jump great that day either. 3 weeks off since that win and is back over hurdles here on only a 4lb higher mark. Will love the ground and even though the step up to 3m is a bit of an unknown we feel it could bring out more improvement. Should have a big chance in a race that has cut up a bit this morning with a few non-runners to hopefully make our chance a lot easier.

Up For Parol    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect for the Snowden yard.


Thu 1st Apr 2021
14:25, Ffos Las

Up For Parol won impressively last time out at Wetherby when we dropped him back in trip. This looks a good opportunity under a penalty but there is one of Nicky's running which could be dangerous. However, I'd not swap our chap and he is in great form at home.

Gyllen 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
14:25, Ffos Las

Decent flat performer in France (G2 winner), but only average runs as a hurdler so far from just two runs. Will, however, be better once getting a handicap mark, which he'll get after this.

Wax And Wane 
Thu 1st Apr 2021
13:55, Ffos Las

Ahdab 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
19:45, Kempton Park

Ahdab runs in the mile 0-85 at Kempton tonight he was unlucky last start when caught short of room and ran on well to finish second. The John Gosden trained runner looks the horse to beat and James Doyle takes the ride.

Point Louise 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
17:10, Kempton Park

Fair filly that we've taken our time with - last seen running well to be second here back in November but is into a handicap for the first time here today and that should also help. Trip and track are fine and she's done well over the winter. Luke Morris rides and would have e/w claims here today.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
17:10, Kempton Park

Still a maiden but has run some good races in defeat here never getting beat too far. Much better draw for a change and could go well at a big price if she gets an even run round.

Big Jimbo 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
16:40, Kempton Park

Poor race, but lightly raced and would certainly have a chance. Poor draw in 14 to overcome, but hopefully over this 1m4f trip can overcome that. Trip is fine and has acted well on better ground on the turf so the AW surface (first try on it) should suit. Each-way chance in a very open race.

In The Genes 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
16:40, Kempton Park

In The Genes runs in the 0 to 50 classified race at Kempton over 1m 4f. It is a weak race with most of the field showing little form so hopefully we can see some improvement. We have put blinkers on her to help sharpen her up and Kieran O’Neill takes the ride.

Electron Bleu 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
15:20, Southwell

Didn't run too badly last time out (4th) at Hereford and the winner of that race won again yesterday. 2lbs lower and with Charlie riding this time that helps as he's taking off 5lbs as well. Another of ours that we are upping in trip too, but on this quicker ground we feel it's worth a crack. Might be a tall order to beat the Skelton runner, as we have to give that one 6lbs too, but no shock if we ran into a place here.

Alaskan Boy 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
13:45, Southwell

Not troubled the judge from two runs over fences to date, but we feel the step up to 3m here is worth a try on this better ground. Also down 5lbs here from that last run at Ffos Las. But is also back from 4 months off so likely to improve for this and probably a race that will be going to the Olly Murphy runner - First Class Return.

Nora The Xplorer 
Wed 31st Mar 2021
12:30, Ludlow

Only second career run after last seen running down the field at Catterick in a NH Flat race back in December. Hopeful she'll be better on the good ground and has schooled well for this hurdles debut, but the main two in the betting set a fair standard and likely to be better with experience and then a handicap mark.

Bungledupinblue 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
19:40, Wolverhampton

Was bumped and take wide by another runner last time so best ignored. Tough and genuine so if she breaks well and has a clear run she should be thereabouts. 

A Pint Of Bear 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
19:40, Wolverhampton

Two career AW wins have been at Southwell and yet to get off the mark in handicaps. Down another 2lbs from last time and Jonathan is back on to claim 5lbs so that helps. Nice draw in 7 and no reason why this first try at Wolves won't suit. We've also dropped him in grade today so should find this easier, but with both wins coming on the fibresand and over 5f then a bit to prove still at a new track and over 6f.

Over Thinking 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
17:50, Warwick

Very much first day at school here today - tongue-tie on to help with the breathing and Tabitha's 5lb claim will help, but one for the future with more experience under his belt.

Antony 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
16:30, Fakenham

11 years-old now so into these Vets races and should have a leading chance. Been off since December, but has been waiting for the better ground and is a horse that goes well fresh too. Track a bit of an unknown - first run here - but has won many times at Fontwell so hopeful it will be okay. Open race with all 4 having a say, but he's fit and well, plus has a lovely light weight (10-3) which will be a big help.

Corri Lindo 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
16:00, Fakenham

Generous Day 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
15:35, Warwick

Bounced back to form last time out at Hereford with a 6 length win. Up 7lbs for that but has had a month off to get over that race with this race in mind. Loves it here at Warwick - has won twice in the past, including this race in 2019 when it was last run. Is 9lbs higher than that win, but has won off higher in the past so still not too badly treated. Good ground is perfect too and should have every chance of going well at a track he loves, with the Skelton horse looking the one to beat.

Benatar    WINNER! winner

Better run from Gary's horse.


Tue 30th Mar 2021
15:35, Warwick

A horse that's had his troubles - classy on his day, but hasn't won now since 2017 - but that was a G2 Novices' Chase! Been below par this year after a good third in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup back in Dec. We are now down in grade and 7lbs lower than that Cheltenham run so should find this a lot easier. Should also enjoy the better ground (has won on good ground), but will just need to brush up his jumping a bit from last time. Bit to prove based on recent runs, but can't rule out on these terms.

Quiet Penny 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
14:25, Warwick

Hasn't shown a great deal in two starts this season but that has been on really soft ground and she should very much appreciate this drier ground. She jumps fences well and I think she has the ability to run way better than her odds would suggest. However, it looks an open and competitive race and she'll need a bit of luck in-running on her debut over fences.

Legal Rights 
Tue 30th Mar 2021
14:15, Fakenham

Former flat winner in France - only second run for us and over hurdles though. Down the field on debut at Kempton but we feel stepping up to 2m4f (from 2m) here will help. However, likely to need more time over the sticks and a handicap mark. Goes without saying the more experienced NTD and Nicholls runners should be trading blows for this one.

17:30, Stratford upon Avon

Average debut run at Newton Abbot back in October - has got stronger over the winter and done well since. Better ground here will be fine and looking for a step forward and some more experience here. But likely to be one for the future when more experience under his belt.

Furlough Me    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect in the making.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
17:10, Fontwell Park

Probably stating the obvious - but looks one of our best chances on the day. A nice horse and pleased on debut at Wincanton (3rd) on debut. Has come out of that race well and should have a big chance of getting off the mark here. Only doubt would be in the ground became too firm, then he'd probably not run.

Outisaid 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
17:00, Stratford upon Avon

Another Sam Twiston-Davies rides today so hoping he'll benefit from his experience. A bit outpaced last time at Taunton so the longer trip here will be in his favour and down a pound here too. Does need to show a bit more, but still lightly-raced (7 runs) and in what looks an average race no shock if he ran into a place here - anything else a plus.

Episode    WINNER! winner

First win for this Gary Moore runner.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
16:40, Fontwell Park

Only four runners now so that helps, but still doesn't look a great race. This horse is yet to win a race (13 runs), but ran okay at Leicester last time - just getting tired at the end. Therefore, the slightly shorter trip will help as will the better ground and track. Clondaw Robin the obvious danger, but if repeating her Fakenham second back in Dec, then would have a big chance in a race like this.

Jersey Wonder    WINNER! winner

Top call from Oliver


Mon 29th Mar 2021
16:10, Fontwell Park

Jersey Wonder is tackling a longer trip today which should suit him now he’s got the hang of hurdling. Jersey Wonder ran really well here on his most recent outing (3rd) and the ground that wasn’t suitable (soft), but I really like the way he knuckled down in the home straight because he hasn’t always looked the most resilient. Has done well at home since and on this quicker ground feel we come here with a leading chance.
Distingo    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
16:10, Fontwell Park

Last seen running well (4th) in a jumpers bumper on the AW in Feb. Back over hurdles here and a fairly consistent sort over the sticks with 7 top three finishes from 20 runs. Ground okay and maybe a small bit to prove over this longer trip, but conditions will help on that score. The Sherwood horse is respected, but another of ours today that's not without an e/w chance.

Three Ways 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
16:00, Wincanton

Three Ways has had some very useful form to his name in the past, but has had a few spells on the side-lines. He has come back from injury this term and hasn't shown the same old spark, but we have been running him on some pretty bad ground, and he should appreciate this sounder surface. He has dropped in the handicap now, and is looking to be off a mark he can be very competitive again. However, he might find 2m5 on drying ground a bit quick for him here, and young Will Featherstone is having his first ride in public. He is an excellent rider and has had experience in pony races and a couple of Point-to-Points prior to the latest lockdown.

Chez Hans 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
16:00, Wincanton

Only second run for the yard - was formerly with the Olly Murphy camp. Well down the field on debut for us but that was to be expected as that came off a long break (565 days). Been off since Oct as been waiting for the better ground. The quicker ground here is also a big plus - only career win came on good-to-firm, while Callum rides again and is able to claim 7lbs. Down 4lbs from last time too - Better expected and would have small e/w claims, but the Neil King runner looks the obvious one here.

Elisezmoi 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
15:40, Fontwell Park

Pulled up here the last day after running too free in soft ground - that came after just over a year off so wasn't totally unexpected, but with that run under his belt to blow away the cobwebs then hopeful of better today.

Tamaris 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
15:10, Fontwell Park

Third on both hurdles starts to date - been gelded since his last run and into a handicap for the first time here will help - so should have more to offer. Ground and trip okay too, plus a light weight help. Might just improve for the run after 3-4 months off, but would have a small e/w chance.

Sashenka 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
15:00, Wincanton

Been so unlucky in her three races over hurdles to date - had the race in the bag last time at Catterick until falling two out! Into a handicap here for the first time, but looks on a fair mark and in another mares' only race here too. Will love the better ground and seems none the worse for that recent fall. Can never totally tell if it will impact her until we get into a race, but if her jumping holds up then should be getting off the mark here and deserves to as well!

Corri Lindo    WINNER! winner

Plugged on well to take third.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
14:50, Stratford upon Avon

Old timer at 11, but into a Selling Hurdle here should give him a chance. Acts on all ground so the quicker surface here is okay and versatile with the trip too. Sam Twiston-Davies rides for the first time but that's an obvious plus, so even though the first two in the market are respected - Embole and Mizen Master - we head here with an e/w chance.

Ar Mest 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
14:40, Fontwell Park

Looks a stright match between us and the Nicholls horse - should be better for the slightly longer trip and better ground certainly in his favour too. We've 16lbs to find on the ratings with the favourite though so would probably need that one to run a bit below par, but we still come here with a live chance.

Bembridge    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second for the Sherwood yard.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
13:40, Fontwell Park

Bembridge is a very backward baby who will fare better once he has a handicap mark and also with another summer on his back. Bembridge is very much the traditional three mile chaser in the making, so anything he does over hurdles will be a bonus. He is the sweetest horse who is incredibly honest in his work and his races.
Counteract    WINNER! winner

Great call from Suzy.


Mon 29th Mar 2021
13:30, Wincanton

Expected to be much better on a decent surface - has schooled well too and hoping for a good run, so could make the frame here at a fair price.

Kost A Coat 
Mon 29th Mar 2021
13:00, Wincanton

Lightly-raced - just fourth career run and only second over hurdles. Can ignore it's last outing too at Sandown as lost a shoe that day. Has come out of that well though and will love the good ground. Actually ran third behind Shishkin in a NH Flat race at Kempton back in 2019! Going the right way at home and we think he leave recent runs behind and run a big e/w race here today. Looks our best e/w chance on the day.

Blow Your Horn    WINNER! winner

Ran on well for Charlie.


Sun 28th Mar 2021
17:25, Doncaster

Has been desperately unlucky over the winter on the all weather, getting bad draw after bad draw. He is drawn wide (13) again today but that’s not a bad thing at Doncaster. 12 furlongs around here should suit him well and should be in the thick of things again here.

Singlefarmpayment    WINNER! winner

Great win for this popular horse.


Sun 28th Mar 2021
15:55, Ascot

Has been a frustrating character over the years but certainly has ability. Got tired last time out at Newbury and weakened in the end in a similar Veterans race, but has been dropped 4lbs for that and should be a lot sharper for that too. Will love the better ground here and has run well over the track in the past too. Probably not one to totally trust as often placed more that winning, but is certainly better than last time and with just 10-6 to carry could be very dangerous indeed.

Bowland Park 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
15:40, Doncaster

Small field but an interesting race, but the Godolphin horse looks a cut above the rest.

Harmonious 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
15:05, Doncaster

Returns from almost 5 months off but has did well for us on the AW at Southwell at the end of last season and makes turf debut for us today. We feel this 1m2f trip will be perfect - has run well over 1m3 1/2f on the grass in the past. Yet to win, but is also yet to finish out of the top four from his six races so can't discount him running well and small e/w chance. 

Viaduct 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
15:05, Doncaster

Second runner in the race for us - Didn't run too badly last time for a 100/1 shot, was only beaten 3 3/4 lengths. That came on the AW at Lingfield and took a bit of a hold that day so the drop back in trip should help with them going a tiny bit quicker. Probably a tall order, but another having it's first run on the grass for us so we'll find out more, but should be winning races in the right grade this summer.

Royaume Uni 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
14:45, Ascot

Did well on the AW at Lingfield earlier this year and ran okay at Kempton (4th) back over hurdles last time. Trip and ground are fine and should certainly have more to offer over the sticks. Looks a better race than last time, but, that said, we still feel we come here with every chance with a nice racing weight. Each-way.

Sopran Thor 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
13:35, Ascot

Very tight race with all four runners having a chance. Our 6 year-old ran a decent second last time out at Sandown to an improving sort and gets in here off the same mark. Better ground is okay and kept on well to suggest this track will suit too. Will probably need to settle a bit better as took a hold the last day, but is still learning so another bold bid on the cards here. The Henderson runner - Cascova - is probably the one feared the most.

Red Poppy 
Sun 28th Mar 2021
13:20, Doncaster

Red Poppy has been frustrating since winning on stable debut over the winter. She shows a lot of speed at home so the drop back to 7 could work. I like the return to turf too for her too so looking forward to seeing how she gets on. James Doyle rides, which is a further plus. Draw 15 is okay - looks a fair e/w option.

Bells Of Peterboro    WINNER! winner

Done well this season so far with a 4-1-2 from his three races. Those have come with a lot more cut in the ground than he's likely to get here, but should still be fine on the ground. Has crept up another 5lbs in the handicap though, so we are trying him in this better race with a lower racing weight - just 10-3 to carry here. Career best needed but in great form and hard to rule out with his very light weight.

Moveonup 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
20:00, Wolverhampton

Nice draw in 4 helps and not badly-treated on older form, but does need to recapture that. Down another 2lbs from his last run and another of ours that Hollie Doyle rides so hoping she can work some magic. Better AW runs though have been away from Wolves so a bit to prove on that score, but the plus is he only good run here (2019) a certain Hollie Doyle was riding, so hoping that's a good omen! Another competitive race for the grade though so e/w chances.

Lady Quickstep 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
19:00, Wolverhampton

Likes it here at Wolves so the return here will suit - two runs here read 1-2. Nice draw in stall 1 too and another Hollie rides for us today. 2lbs lower than when a fair second here two runs ago and so a repeat of that run in the same grade will see her go close.

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

Top win for Gay and Hollie!


Sat 27th Mar 2021
18:30, Wolverhampton

You guessed it - Hollie rides again, no she's not my new stable jockey! But an obvious plus and this 5 year-old should help her being in good form himself. A good record spell on the fibresand at Southwell, but just as good here at Wolverhampton (CD winner). Continues to creep up the handicap though (2lbs higher than last time), but we are hoping in this better race and the fact he's got only 8-7 in weight this will be a big plus. Looks a tight affair, but the horse is in great form and we've a great jockey doing the steering!

Global Hope 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
18:00, Wolverhampton

Bit to answer on the AW being 0-from-11, with all four career wins coming on the turf. 2lbs lower and we are introducing the blinkers here today to see if they help him. Has run okay over this 7f trip, but all career wins have also been over shorter, so does have that to prove too.

Maxine 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:30, Wolverhampton

If there was a prize for the horse with the most thirds then this horse would probably win it! She's now collected the bronze medal in all of her last five starts so maybe see if a bookmaker is offering that market! Joking aside, she's affair sort that should find this ease in grade to her liking and after not quite getting home over 1m4f last time at Lingfield will also like the drop back to this 1m 11/2f trip. David Probert rides again (was on last time) and she's run well here before twice (3rd both times). The Hannon horse is probably the likely winner though, but should not be far away.

Doonbeg Farmer 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:30, Wolverhampton

Still not settling properly and can be a tricky ride too as a result. Poor draw here too does not help his chance either. Has ability though, but will need the run of the race to make the frame.

Flaminger 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:10, Newbury

Returned last time at Plumpton with a solid second - has come out of that race well and gets in here off the same mark. Up in grade though, but we feel he's worth a crack in this grade with a slightly less racing weight. If all 8 run, then e/w claims.

Isaac Wonder    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:10, Newbury

Pulled up the last day at Southwell (Aug 20) - never really travelling. But has had a wind op since that run and a break and ready to run again. Blinkers are also on today to help and seems well at home, plus favours a quicker surface so hoping any rain stays away. Nice to get going again with him and is fit and well. It's really all in his head and how much effort he wants to put in though.

Ivaquestion 
Sat 27th Mar 2021

Winner at this track though not at his best last time when turned out quickly. Progressive stayer and could easily get back on an upward curve here in an ordinary race.

Secret Acquisition 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:05, Kempton Park

Got hampered out the gates last time out and was entitled to need the race following a long layoff. The extra distance should be in her favour on her first attempt at a mile and a half, wide draw never ideal but matters less at this trip.

Belletti 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
17:00, Wolverhampton

Very green on her debut when never able to get into the race, looks to have at least learned from that experience and the step up in distance should allow her to get involved in the action. She'll learn more again this time around.

Will hopefully be fitter than most after a good time recently on the AW. Back on the turf here today but only his third run on the grass here today. Fair share of weight but has improved since we last saw him on the grass back in 2019 when trained by Martyn Meade. Probably needs to improve a bit more off this mark, with last win on the AW coming off 6lbs lower, but should have more to offer on the grass and place claims here.

Naturally High 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
16:35, Newbury

Decent flat form in France - former Listed winner. Nice recruit to the yard, but has not been on a track since Sept 18! Also hurdles debut here today so a lot of question marks, plus expected to improve for the outing after the time off. But a horse to look out for in the coming months and once handicapped.

Rocco Du Berlais 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
16:35, Newbury

Only fifth career run here today - but wil be more competitive once getting a handicap mark.

Silver Bubble 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
16:25, Wolverhampton

Has done well in her three races to date and makes handicap debut here today. We feel she's on a fair mark, but will learn more here and delighted to have booked Hollie Doyle to ride. Likely to come from off the pace a bit so the 7 draw is fine - certainly going the right way and could be a real improver with this only being her fourth career run - in what looks a very very open race will have e/w claims under a top pilot!

Sognatore 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
16:25, Wolverhampton

Ran well on his first go in handicap company last time out in a higher grade race, dropping back a furlong probably not ideal but should get away with it in what looks a slightly easier assignment.

Monte Carlo Bay 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
16:20, Doncaster

Monte Carlo Bay has been tricky to train. This is very much first day at school. Track will suit well but he will
improve for the run.

Chiefofchiefs 
Sat 27th Mar 2021

Chiefofchiefs goes very well fresh and likes the track. The ground should be no problem and Jamie Spencer should
Suit him well.

Blue Flame 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
15:20, Kempton Park

This is a first run for him after a lengthy break and hopefully he can show signs of the promise he had on his first two starts. Luke Morris takes the ride.

15:10, Doncaster

Things didn’t go right for King Ottokar last year. He was right at the beginning and then had no luck at the end. He has had a clear run through the winter and looks fantastic. He is ready to run and this big field should suit him. Ground should be fine

Hudson De Grugy 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
14:50, Newbury

Nice hurdler that's done nothing wrong this season since coming over from France - winning his last two. More on his plate here in a better race and up 8lbs from last time. But did it by 17 lengths that day and should have more to come. The longer trip will help too as hit a bit of a flat spot last time - should be bang there with just 10-8 to carry and hopefully he can continue his progression.

The Fresh Prince 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
14:20, Newbury

Prince is a horse with ability but his form has been inconsistent throughout his career, there have generally been excuses for his poor efforts but it does mean he’s a difficult horse to have complete confidence in before a race.
He will be wearing first time cheek pieces today to see if they help. After his most recent disappointment at Warwick Prince was found to be lame behind, this took a combined effort from my vet, chiropractor and physio to get him back right again ... but touch wood we’ve had no issues with him since that race. Prince is a very tall good looking horse who qualified for this race by winning nicely at Huntingdon on his first outing of the season under Harry, he’s a good work horse and he’s very enthusiastic on the schooling ground. Capable but after his last run then just be happy with an improved run.
Master The Stars 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
14:15, Kempton Park

He has been in good order at home since a very good first up run this year. This is always a competitive race with the William Haggas and John Gosden trained horses strong first and second favourites respectively. The race should suit him and he is a off a low weight so could hopefully run a big race. Luke Morris takes the ride.

Arthurs Realm 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
13:15, Kempton Park

He showed a fair amount of promise last year running well in some competitive novices and was unlucky not to win on handicap debut last time out. This looks a nice option for him with the Mark Johnston trained runner the likely favourite however he will have to carry a 7lb penalty. I am hopeful Arthur will run a good race. Luke Morris takes the ride.

Maketh Believeth    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Harry's horse.


Sat 27th Mar 2021
13:15, Kempton Park

Nice colt that should enjoy the slightly longer trip, but will need to improve from what we saw on debut and likely to need more time and a handicap mark.

Red Verdon 
Sat 27th Mar 2021
12:50, Meydan

This horse has been in great form so far this year and ran a very creditable fourth last time out in a competitive running of the Long Distance Handicap in Riyadh. He has come out of this race well and looks in good order. The race is competitive with Subjectivist a recent Group One winner the horse to beat on paper. David Egan takes the ride.

Leo Minor 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
20:15, Newcastle

Poor race, but a bit to prove at the moment and is yet to win on the AW (27 runs). Low mark and light weight help and if able to find his form of a few years ago when running well off a 20+lb higher ratings, then would be a player, but we'd like to see some of that sparkle back on the track first.

Lucky Beggar 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
19:45, Newcastle

11 years-old now so goes without saying not the horse he was - this will be his 102nd career run. On a plus though is back to a fair mark - ran well off this rating here last Sept - and with booked the useful Laura Pearson to claim a further 5lbs. He's also been freshened up with a 5 month break and seems well for that. Each-way chance in an open race with his light weight.

Brummie Boys 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
15:15, Newbury

Brummie pulled up early on at Haydock on his most recent outing, he was never going and he wasn’t a hundred percent right behind immediately afterwards. He must have pulled a muscle because he was stiff and sore for a few days. Brummie has been largely disappointing on a racecourse so I have fitted him with first time blinkers today, he’s a thorough stayer who is very lazy in his work and races - hopefully the blinkers will wake him up. He needs to show a bit more to warrant persevering with but he is still pretty unfurnished, if he strengthens up again through the summer he would probably make a better chaser over a trip. Brummie wouldn’t want the ground to be too fast but there is rain forecast, I hope it comes after the other two have run though!! I'm not asking for much!!
Glen Mooar 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
15:15, Newbury

The horses have been running well this week and with Glen dropped in grade a tad, then we feel he's not without a small e/w chance. Also down 4lbs in the ratings here helps and should be at home more over this longer trip and on the better ground.

The Game Is On 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Winner last year in slow ground at Goodwood but has won on the all weather. Well drawn but this might be a bit sharp for him and not run for a while. Bit to prove for a moment.

Celestial Bliss 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Second run for us after coming from the Kevin Ryan yard. Well back on debut for us at Kempton but wasn't given a hard time with losing ground in the home straight. 3lbs lower and that run has taught us a bit, while we feel the track here at Lingfield will suit him better. But with this coming off another small break (3 1/2 months), then likely to improve for it.

Caldwell    WINNER! winner

Well done to the Michael Scudamore yard and another nice TQ View winner too.


Fri 26th Mar 2021
14:30, Musselburgh

Going the right way after an improved second at Kelso last time out - into a handicap for the first time today will help and will be fine on the better ground. Also met many of these at Kelso last time and meets them on better terms today. Seems to handle most ground so that helps and even though he needs to sharpen his jumping - has done plenty of schooling since his last run and comes here with every chance.

Manning Estate 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
14:05, Newbury

Flash is another horse who likes good ground and his last outing in less than favourable conditions should be ignored.
Flash will always be remembered for being Leighton’s last winner for me, although at the time I didn’t know it, he showed a good attitude on that occasion but unfortunately he didn’t show the same resolve in two runs over fences this season. There was nothing wrong with his jumping he just didn’t travel over fences like we know he can, I’m not completely ruling out a return to chasing at some stage but so far he doesn’t look as if he’s going to make a better chaser than hurdler. Does like the better ground too so hence why Flash has also had a nice break since his last race in order to enjoy a spring campaign.
Gleno 
Fri 26th Mar 2021

Jersey Bean 
Fri 26th Mar 2021
13:30, Newbury

Bean is a little star who has been a revelation over fences since we fitted him with blinkers, he’s not dishonest but he was too deliberate over his obstacles previously. Bean likes good ground so he has had a mid winter break in anticipation of a spring campaign, he has done plenty of work so he should be fit enough after his absence and run a decent race. Looks to have a fair e/w chance here.
Francolin 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
15:45, Ludlow

Colin ran way to free in his bumper at Hereford on his first outing and as a result he stopped very quickly half a mile from home and all but pulled up. He’s a horse that can be keen at times at home but I didn’t expect him to be that buzzy. Colin was going to go point-to-pointing before he arrived with me - so, therefore, he has done plenty of schooling and his jumping is very good. I hope he relaxes more today, hurdles can help with that, he’s a lovely horse to deal so fingers crossed he can improve and chill with racing. But looks a race the first two in the betting will be playing out.
Imphal 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
15:07, Chepstow

Looks a very average race and should find this ease in grade a lot more to his liking. The better ground will also be more up his street, so hoping any rain stays away. Yet to win over hurdles, but only had 4 tries over the sticks. Knows how to win though after 4 wins on the level and this looks one of his better chances to date of getting off the mark. Should go well.

Judex Lefou 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
15:07, Chepstow

Still to win a race from 15 races but returned with a fair run at Hereford last time off 2 1/2 months out. That was also his first run back from a wind op and we are 2lbs lower as well. Still need to see a bit more on the track though really before being more confident.

Williamdeconqueror 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
15:07, Chepstow

Fell last time, so a clear round most important. Trip on the short side too so probably not a day to be confident of a place

Hijran 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
14:45, Ludlow

Showed a lot of guts to win at Hereford a few weeks ago and we are only 3lbs higher here, but offsetting much of that with Philip's 7lb claim (we had a 5lb claimer on last time). Trip is fine, while the better ground is okay too, plus she's a proven course winner here at Ludlow. Seems well after that last race and even though this looks a tiny bit more competitive so probably have more on her plate, but being a CD winner and the only recent winner in the field would give her an e/w chance.

Triangle Rock 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
14:37, Chepstow

Pulled up when last seen at Wetherby back in December and now a 14-race maiden. Does have bits of fair form though from a few seasons ago and still only 8 years-old so time on his side. We've given him a wind-op too since his last run and hoping that will help now going forward. But also back from almost 4 months off, but really just be happy with a better run to give us a platform to build on.

Cheers Delboy 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
14:37, Chepstow

Will be happier on this better ground, but it is a long time since he ran, so will come on a lot for this! Can be not the most resolute of characters so hopefully the headgear will concentrate his mind!

Eragon De Chanay 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
14:15, Ludlow

Another solid run last time out at Fontwell (2nd) and will be find on the better ground today. Dropped another pound and certainly looking well-handicapped on hurdles form. Yet to win over fences, but only had 7 runs over the bigger obstacles. Looks to have one to beat - the Wadham horse - but we head here hopeful of a good run.

Minella Royale 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
13:15, Ludlow

Minella won a point-to-point before joining us and then ran with credit at Warwick on his first outing when finishing fifth in a decent novice hurdle. He then really disappointed here a month ago when pulling up, he never travelled that day and I can offer no excuse other than it was horrible ground. We had Minella checked out for the usual things after that race and nothing came to light so I have to ignore it and hope it was just a bad day at the office. Hopefully that was just one of those days, but we'd like to see how he gets on back on the track really and the Henderson and Murphy horses seem to set a fair standard.
Alfida 
Thu 25th Mar 2021
13:00, Chepstow

Fair form in two NH Flat races so far and schooled well ahead of this debut over hurdles. Will love the good ground and expected to run her race and learn a lot here. Not without a small chance of hitting the frame but goes without saying this is a race that should be going to the useful Galice Macalo on these terms. Therefore, we'd just be happy with a solid run after around 4 months off and will also be more competitive once getting a handicap mark.

Another horse having it's debut for the yard today - came to us from the Christian Williams yard. 13 race maiden over hurdles so another we'll find out more about today, but gets in here with just 10st and a dropping handicap mark in a very average race. Good ground is fine and trying him back up in trip as we feel that will suit and hopefully give us more opportunities. Looks an open race so would have small e/w claims.

Overrated Passtime 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
17:05, Market Rasen

Overrated Pastime was 4th on debut in the autumn. We've given him time since that run, and he has improved but will need to beat a couple of these. He would have place claims again.

San Fermin    WINNER! winner

No match for the winner but a solid runner-up at a massive 100/1!


Wed 24th Mar 2021
17:05, Market Rasen

A bit underwhelming in his points, but shows plenty at home and we will be happy with a solid run in this NH Flat race and build from there.

Badness Backfires 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
16:55, Hereford

A horse that came to us from the Denise Foster yard - not had the horse long so we'll find out more here. Bits and pieces of form over in Ireland but goes without saying hard to assess that over here and yet to win a race. But has only had 8 career runs and looks a fair recruit to the yard. Lorcan is helping by taking off 3lbs too and looking forward to seeing were we are with him. Has also form on good ground in Ireland, so if translating that to over here would have e/w claims.

Anti Cool 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
16:35, Market Rasen

Has had a break, and whilst he seems in good heart at home he will likely need this run

Hudson Yard 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
15:55, Hereford

Hudson Yard won well after a mammoth absence on debut for us at Exeter, and arguably should have won under a penalty at Catterick last time out when she was 2nd. The winner of that race has won since, and we're off a sensible opening mark for our handicap debut. Sure to put up another bold show here.

Rosie And Millie 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
15:30, Market Rasen

Lovely mare that rarely runs a bad race. Just the one hurdles win to her name though but many places. We've given her a wind op since her last run and we are stepping her back up in trip here today, which is fine. No matter what will improve for this after almost 3 months out, but has run well fresh in the past too and even though the Murphy horse sets the standard, we head here with a fair e/w chance as should also find this slight ease in grade a bit easier than the races she's been contesting this season.

Seaston Spirit 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
15:12, Haydock

 
Guguss Collonges 
Wed 24th Mar 2021
14:20, Market Rasen

Yet to win from 5 races, but this looks an easier chance for him now dropped in grade. Back in trip here today too should help and is also 7lbs better off with the jockey claim included than last time - Niall rides and takes off a handy 5lbs. No reason why the track won't suit and should hopefully have a great chance of getting off the mark.

Thor De Cerisy 
Wed 24th Mar 2021

Thomas Macdonagh    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Jamie's horse.


Wed 24th Mar 2021
13:30, Haydock

Thomas Macdonagh was a decent novice hurdler, and has taken his form to higher levels this season despite only winning the once. However, he didn't stay the extended 3m2 the last day at Carlisle, so dropping back to 2m4 is sure to suit.  However, we would ideally have liked the ground softer. This looks a tight and competitive race, but we're not without a chance. He is fit and well.

Galactic Power    WINNER! winner

Place money landed for Robin's horse.


Tue 23rd Mar 2021
16:45, Taunton

Ran a great race last time to just get collared up the run in. Has come out of that race well. Always tries hard to give his best and must have a chance with Lorcan taking the 3lbs off that he went up for that run.

Rainbow Storm 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
16:45, Taunton

Rainbow is a bonny little horse who should get this trip if he settles ok. This will be his first run in a handicap and he’s also benefiting from Kai’s ten pound claim. Should be more to come and e/w chances.
Brigade Of Guards 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
16:45, Taunton

Yet to show much but has been waiting for the better ground and that will help. We are also down 5lbs here and also with Charlie's 5lb claim then much better off than last run. This ease in grade will also mean this is the easiest class he's run in since going handicapping. But will need to show more on the track, but hopeful he can take a step forward here.

Monkey Puzzle 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
16:15, Taunton

Monkey has run perfectly well in defeat on his last two outings after winning at Fontwell first time out, which was a real gritty, staying performance. Monkey prefers good ground so he’s not run since January, he’s been in good order at home lately and should get his ground today. Monkey is another cheeky horse who can be playful to ride, he’s lazy in his work but enjoys his schooling. Another with a fair e/w chance.
Jembug Drummer 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:55, Wetherby

Fair bit to prove on recent runs so best-watched at the moment until we see better on the track.

Starevitch    WINNER! winner

Promising debut run from Jamie's horse.


Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:40, Huntingdon

Starevitch won an Irish point in the autumn, and we've given him plenty of time to settle in. He goes well at home and is certainly one I am looking forward to seeing over hurdles in due course. He has the ability to win a bumper first, but this looks a decent event. The favourite has a penalty though, and its always hard to carry a penalty in these, but there are some nicely bred newcomers too. Either way, this is a lovely place to start off his career under rules....

Ask Himself 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:25, Wetherby

Fair return run last time at Newcastle as that came off the back of a wind op too and also in a much better race. 4lbs lower here and only now 2lbs higher than last winning run. 2m trip is fine and will be happier on the better ground today. On his best form, should have a fair e/w chance and shouldn't be too far away.

Vue Cavaliere 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:17, Taunton

Ideal going and trip here today for her. Normally runs a solid race and likely to be in the mix again here today. Expecting a good run.

Feodora 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:10, Huntingdon

Feodora has run perfectly well in her two races this season without being exciting and I feel she will fare better now that she is handicapped and on this better ground. Feodora is from a decent pedigree with plenty of stamina in there so this step up in trip shouldn’t be a problem. Feodora is a very honest mare who is straightforward to deal with. Each-way chance.
Speedy Choice 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
15:10, Huntingdon

First time in a handicap & her mark looks high enough - step up in trip should be in her favour though, along with some better ground so just be happy with a step forward here.

Le Boulevardier 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
14:12, Taunton

Brian - as he's known at home - has plenty of ability but he has a mind of his own therefore he is fairly frustrating on a racecourse. He will enjoy this ground and with Kai’s ten pound claim you never know but I think he’ll be better off once he has a handicap mark.
Isle Of Aron 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
14:12, Taunton

Fair form in a couple of bumpers last year, but well back on hurdles debut at Wetherby last time. The better ground will suit but likely to be one that is better once handicapped and with a bit more experience over hurdles.

Detatched 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
13:45, Wetherby

Went close last time out at Warwick (2nd) and a repeat of that run should see him go well again. Off the same mark helps, but we've Joe Anderson riding this time to claim 7lbs. Trip and slightly better ground are fine, so should have every chance.

Gentlemans Dream 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
13:35, Huntingdon

Fair run last time at Fontwell but the drop back in trip here should help as probably didn't settle the best the last day and didn't quite last out. Still learning too - this is only his fourth run over fences - but looks the right race for him and should not be far away. The Evan Williams runner looks the danger, but we'd be disappointed if we are not in the shake-up.

Nobel Leader 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
13:35, Huntingdon

We have been waiting for the better ground for him. Drop in trip and grade should help. If he settles and jumps he has an e/w chance.

Kaphumor 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021

Kaphumor has been disappointing in his three runs this season after winning a point to point prior to being purchased by The Million In Mind syndicate. He hated the ground last time out at Hereford so I’m hoping the switch to fences and the better conditions today will bring about the necessary improvement. Kaphumor is a pretty lazy horse at home but he does work well, which makes him even more infuriating, but overall hoping for a nice e/w run.

Didn't try a yard on his reappearance last time, and will need to find his form first time over fences. Schooling well at home though, but realistically a nice safe round is top priority today.

Old Friend 
Tue 23rd Mar 2021
12:30, Huntingdon

Nice debut run at Newbury (5th). Has improved for that at home and would have learned a lot from the experience. Trip and ground are fine - will need to settle a bit better as ran keen last time, but that can be forgiven with that being his first run over hurdles and his first for just over 4 months. In a race that lacks depth, should be thereabouts.

Jean Genie 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:40, Kelso

Ran well the last day at Taunton (3rd) - staying on well that day over this sort of trip, but the extra 1/2 a furlong here will help. That came on heavy ground, but today's quicker surface no issue and down a pound too. Also wearing the cheekpieces for the first time to help him settle and focus. Tight little 5 runner race, but we'd have every chance if building on that last effort.

Connard 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:40, Kelso

Second runner in this race for us and would have a small chance too. Took a step forward the last day at Ludlow (2nd) and gets in here off the same mark. That was also only his third run for us after coming over from Ireland so seems to be going the right way. We'll see how he gets on on this better ground today, but has come out of that last race well and could run well too if getting on with the ground.

Darkest Day    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win for Gary's horse.


Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:20, Plumpton

Looks our best chance of getting something on the day - consistent sort but is still looking for his first win (12 races). Has run well here before too and we feel he could improve for the better ground and we are also putting the visor on for the first time to see if that helps him focus - mainly in the closing stages. Fair share of weight is the only niggle, but should have every chance.

Prince Percy 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:20, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us and probably best watched until we see more on the track.

Le Milos 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:10, Kelso

Should have a leading chance. Won well at Fontwell the last day and despite a 6lb rise for that comes here in good form. Up in class here too, so more needed, but he did it last time with a big weight (12-2), so in this better race the 11-0 to carry will help. Is also a course winner here over hurdles so that was one of the reasons for coming up to Kelso. Only had two career runs over fences and hopeful there will be more to come. Should go well.

Court Master    WINNER! winner

Wore down the long time leader to get home.


Mon 22nd Mar 2021
16:10, Kelso

Didn't do much wrong in all his starts at the start of the season. Slightly calmer waters that last time as eased back in grade. Didn't run too badly though that day (6th of 16) and down a pound helps. Had a small break since (3-4 months) but is a horse that likes to race fresh - last two wins came off breaks. Will love the ground and the trip is fine too - still 6lbs higher than last win over fences, but this will only be his eighth race over the bigger obstacles so should have more to come. Has done plenty of work at home and should have a big chance.

Tractor Fred 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:50, Plumpton

Tractor Fred bolted up at Plumpton last week under a fabulously bold ride from Page, on his first run on vaguely nice ground. He has come out of that race well, and goes here carrying a 7lbs penalty, as surely the handicapper will have his say for his win last week. A reproduction of that effort should see him win this again but he does carry a lot of weight here....that looks the only negative.

Masterdream 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:40, Kelso

Three average runs to date but is into a handicap here for the first time and that will be a huge help. Gets in with a nice racing weight (10-2) and should enjoy the better ground here today. We'll learn more about him today, but certainly feel he can be a lot more competitive. Each-way claims.

Avantgardist    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Henry.


Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:33, Southwell

Has been poor of late - we weren't happy his wind so we got it checked - but was all actually okay. Has been a lot better at home with a tongue-tie and looked sharper with a visor on too. Sports the headgear here so looking forward to seeing how that helps in an actual race. Not one to totally trust though, but if putting it all together then certainly well-handicapped with only career win coming off a 9lb higher mark.

Akkapenko 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:33, Southwell

Back from around 4 months off. Maybe a tad to prove off this rating, but with that in mind we've got Charlie riding to take off 5lbs. Trip and ground are fine and seems well at home, plus seems well freshened up. No matter will improve for this but in an open affair small e/w chance.

Bridle Loanan 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:18, Plumpton

Would be a tough ask to beat the favourite, who won well the other day - especially as we've 12st too. Bridle Loanan also heads here off the back on an unseat so bit to prove at the moment. Better ground is okay though and hoping for a clear run to get some confidence back into him, but the market leader looks the one.

Let Me Entertain U 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
15:03, Southwell

Has been disappointing since his bumper win. He is only 5 years-old though and it can be very hard for horses when they win a bumper as a young horse. Needs to show more than he has done so far over hurdles though. Cheekpieces on today to help him concentrate, while the trip and ground are fine.

Some Chaos 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
14:10, Kelso

Returned earlier this month to run okay (ran well for a long way) but has come on for that outing as it was his first for 3 months. Down a few pounds for that helps and in a much easier race here too - dropped a few grades. Has his fair share of weight as a result though but will love the ground and has won here at the track (fences) in the past too. We probably have the Sandy Thomson horse to beat, but he's will and back over hurdles here today is on a decent mark compared to his chase rating (around 20lbs lower). Should go very close.

Viva Vamoos 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
13:30, Southwell

Viva Vamoos is out of a winning dam, and by Getaway. She is a sister to an Irish point winner, and is making her racecourse debut here today. She goes nicely at home, and has done plenty of work. She looks capable of winning a bumper, but this looks quite deep on paper. Interesting newcomer.

Take Em Out 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
12:30, Southwell

Needed the run back last time out at Exeter - that came off a 486-day break, but after that we put him away for the winter with a Spring/Summer campaign in mind as won well last July. Returns 2lbs lower and Charlie's 5lb claim will help too. Ground is fine and any drying will help further. Might just need this again to blow away the cobwebs but hopeful he'll be winning races again soon.

Diamond Brig 
Mon 22nd Mar 2021
12:30, Southwell

Pulled up and down the field in latest run, but the heavy ground wasn't to his liking that day. The return to a slightly better surface here today will help and he's down a few pounds too. It doesn't look a great race and I can see him running a much better race here today with an each-way chance.

Midnight Folie 
Sun 21st Mar 2021
14:35, Chepstow

Pulled up at Southwell on debut for the yard last month - but that came off a long break and can be expected to be a lot fitter for it. This mare is not without ability though and has won 7 Points and record over fences is not bad - 8 runs (2 wins, 3 seconds). The better ground will help too, as best form on a good surface so any more drying underfoot will be a big plus. Only 7 runners, but small e/w chance, as long as there is no rain.

Mickyh 
Sun 21st Mar 2021
14:05, Chepstow

Looks a race the King and Nicholls horses will be playing out. Mickyh is having his third career run today and will gain more experience here, while he'll benefit from getting a handicap mark in the near future.

18:30, Wolverhampton

CD winner here and not been running too bad of late - despite finishing 6th of 6 last time at Lingfield was only beaten 2 lengths. Up in grade here though so no easier, but we do get in with a lower racing weight as a result. We've also a nice draw in 2, so that will help. Should run his race and won't be far away, but would need a career-best to win this.

Cherokee Bill    WINNER! winner

Landed the e/w money.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
17:15, Uttoxeter

Still hunting for his first win (22 runs), but we've only had the horse for four of those. Fair run last time after a wind op at Fontwell, just getting a bit tired in the closing stages. The slight drop in trip here will therefore help and is also 3lbs lower. No ground issues and dropping mark should give us a better chance. Bit to prove but hoping he'll run better today and could have a small e/w chance.

Shallwehaveonemore    WINNER! winner

Gary looks to have a nice horse on his hands here.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
17:05, Kempton Park

Nice well-bred 4 year-old that is having his first day at school here today. Looking forward to getting going with him. Hard to know much about the others so probably not a race to get involved - with the Henderson and Spencer horses expected to be useful. But not without a small e/w chance and regardless a horse to look for going forward.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
17:00, Wolverhampton

Frustrating maiden though often takes minor honours at this level. Sure to find a race and unproven at this trip here. Could easily feature if conditions suit and seems in good form.

Monbeg Aquadude 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
16:55, Newcastle

Fair bit to prove at the moment after pulling up the last twice. Latest was first run back after a wind op and also first for almost a year so can be expected to have improved for that. Sports the cheekpieces for the first time too, but might have enjoyed softer ground.

Peur De Rien    WINNER! winner

Jumped really well to take this.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
16:25, Kempton Park

Roger, as he's known, started his season well with a good win at Uttoxeter before being pulled up twice when having confidence crisis mid race, he then bounced back to form at Doncaster last time out when just going down by a neck.
If you knew him you would be amused that he could be beaten by that distance because he has the longest neck you’ve ever seen - hahaha! Roger had serious wind issues earlier in his career hopefully that is now behind him and that last run was a good sign too. He's a gorgeous looking horse who is very kind in his stable and he’d sell his soul for a polo mint. Tight little race, but should have every chance.
Mustang Alpha 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
15:55, Fontwell Park

Mustang Alpha has had a good season with a lovely win off 3lbs lower, and some decent placed efforts. He has thrown in two poor runs, and nothing has come to light after those runs to explain them, but he looked back on track the last day at Carlisle when a close 4th. He is fresh and well, and looks to have a decent chance here as long as he can put his best foot forward.

Vinnie The Hoddie 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
15:15, Kempton Park

Vinnie has shown plenty of ability in his races but he’s been inconsistent which is infuriating because he has looked good particularly when winning at Uttoxeter three runs ago - that is slightly frustrating. Since his last race at Wetherby, when he ran flat, he has been treated for ulcers and I can’t say it caused him to run below par that day but because they can’t speak and you know they have ability you have to cover all options and hope to find the key. Vinnie has had a good break, he’s fresh and well and I’m happy with him, he’ll love this good ground. Vinnie is a busy horse at home who takes no work to get fit, he likes to get on with things and he can be strong on the gallops. Overall he head here hopeful of a good run and will have an e/w chance.
Right Hand Of God 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
14:45, Fontwell Park

Yet to win from 8 career runs, but not had much luck of late as unseated at Plumpton in Jan and then lost a shoe the last day here so can ignore that run. Down 4lbs here helps and better ground will suit. We are also putting the visor on (first time) to help him focus with his jumping. Well at home and with a bit more luck would have an e/w chance.

Vorashann 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
14:40, Kempton Park

Nice winner at Fontwell back in Oct 20, but flopped the last day at Chepstow. Is certainly better than that run and we've given him a break since so freshen up - with only 7 days between those last runs it might have been just too soon. Well at home and should enjoy the longer trip. Back into a tough race though against some in-form rivals though and will probably just need the run after the time out.

Caltex 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
14:35, Newcastle

Not been disgraced over fences recently, despite not winning. But reverts to hurdles here today to mix it up and is also a class lower so should find this opposition easier. Ground is fine and would have an e/w chance here in what looks a fairly open race.

Robin Des Theatre    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
14:00, Newcastle

Nice mare that did herself proud to win on hurdles debut here last month. That proven course experience will be a bit plus and has done well at home since. Looks a slightly harder race with the unbeaten McCain horse the big player here. But trip and ground will be fine (any rain a plus) and should not be far away, but might have to settle for second/third behind the McCain hotpot.

Tight Call    WINNER! winner

Cracking run from Tim's horse.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
13:50, Uttoxeter

Won well at Ludlow back in November but couldn't build on that next time at Taunton. In hindsight, that race might have come a bit to soon for him though (just 2 weeks), but is a horse that's often gone well off a break. Had around 4 months off since and is 3lbs lower here. Well at home and we feel the longer trip is fine - but might just have liked better ground so we'll be hoping the ground dries out a bit more. If it does, then not without a small e/w chance.

Royaume Uni 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
13:30, Kempton Park

In good order at the moment after a couple of wins on the AW at Lingfield. Has certainly taken a step forward since we last saw him over hurdles so looking forward to seeing how he gets on. He'll love the quicker ground and if his jumping holds up then not without a squeak, but looks a tough little race and Straw Fan Jack might be hard to beat.

Legal Rights 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
13:30, Kempton Park

Fair flat performer in France. But debut in this country today and also first run for us today and also first time over hurdles. So, we'll learn a lot here today and so will the horse!

Needhams Gap 
Sat 20th Mar 2021
12:30, Fontwell Park

Second runner in the race for us. Former winning pointer and been tried over fences in a higher grade than this so far. But back over hurdles here after a few slow jumps over fences last time - trying to build him up again over the smaller obstacles to get some confidence back into him. Niall's 5lb claim helps and if the race falls apart then very small e/w chance in a race that isn't very strong in depth - but likely to be better once handicapped.

Lavorante    WINNER! winner

Fair third for Gary's horse.


Sat 20th Mar 2021
12:30, Fontwell Park

One of two in the race for us - probably our better chance of getting something after some fair runs in bumpers the last twice. Was slightly disappointing here last time though so needs to come back from that. We are hopeful he'll improve now he's going hurdling and has schooled well. The first two in the betting set a fair standard and have the experience edge over hurdles on us, but we don't feel we are out of this and could go well.

Sociologist 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
20:15, Southwell

Returns from a 4 month break so no matter what happens here will improve for this. A horse that's often in the mix (placed), but only 2 career wins and just one on the AW (from 19) tells it's own story. Does act well on the surface though and stays a bit further than this. But the Kirby horse might just have the fitness edge on us here today and heads here in form from 2 wins. Might be booked for 2nd or 3rd again here.

Catesby 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
18:45, Southwell

Debut run here today - been doing what's been asked at home, but likely to improve for the experience here today.

Break The Silence 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
17:45, Southwell

Not won for over a year and been badly out of form. However, showed better last time here when 5th to the in-form Khatm, so that gave us hope a return to form could be on the cards. Very well handicapped on old form with his last win coming off a mark of 58 and he's now off 51. We are also back into a Class 6 here too and Jonathan takes off a handy 5lbs. If building on that last run, then would have a fair e/w chance here.

Bond Angel 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
17:15, Southwell

In great form at the moment - winning his last race well here over course and distance. Up 4lbs for that but the form has been given a boost since with the second - Custard The Dragon - winning well recently. Plenty of proven performers here at Southwell to take on again, including Khatm, who has won 4 of it's last 5, but our filly in in great shape and certainly comes here with another decent e/w chance.

Agent of Fortune 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
17:05, Lingfield Park

CD winner here after a good spell of it back at the start of 2020. Shot up the ratings as a result and struggled overall since. But is now coming back down the handicap and is now off a mark 14lbs lower than her last win. Down 3lbs too from last run and into a Fillies' only race here helps. Not the best draw on the outside, but only 7 runners now so that shouldn't be too much of an issue now. Would have an e/w chance, but there are only 2 places on offer so probably not a race to go overboard in until we see a bit more a revival from her.

Jeremiah Johnson 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
16:30, Lingfield Park

Signs of promise on debut here with today's rider. Sure to come on for that but these races generally take some winning and probably needs to show more before he can be considered.

Toro Dorado    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second


Fri 19th Mar 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

We all look to have the Watson horse to beat here, but Toro is in good order and the small field will suit. Up in trip here we feel will also be a plus and is a course winner. Oisin Murphy a bonus in the saddle too, so should run well and not without a squeak.

Viaduct 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

Only second run for us after coming from the Martyn Meade yard. Is back down to last winning mark (turf), but was down the field on debut for us here last time and more needed on that. On a plus, is down 5lbs more but we are trying him significantly up in trip here to 1m4f (from 1m), as seemed to get a bit outpaced the last day, to see if this will open a few more doors. But really with the trip a big unknown this is a big of a fact-finding mission here.

Ornate 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
14:45, Lingfield Park

Battled well to get up here last time and meets several of those just in behind again here - had Lihou and Tone The Barone a head and a head back in second and third that day. We are up 2lbs for that win, but we've another top draw in 1 and remains in great shape after that last race. Another bold bid from the front on the cards here - likely to be a race of fine margins, but hoping we'll stay out of trouble at the front and that can be the difference again. Should go close.

Fifty Ball 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
13:55, Cheltenham

Has done very well for us since coming over from France - winning twice and running in the top three each time. Was last seen running second in the Betfair Hurdle, so brings solid form into the race too and is only 4lbs up form that. Another nice racing weight of just 10-6 helps and has come out of that Newbury race well. The ground will be fine, while any rain (should any come) will be totally fine. First run at the track and even though it might not be totally his cup of tea, there is no real reason why it won't suit. Overall, we are looking forward to seeing how he gets on and certainly not without a chance, but obviously an e/w price.

Touchthesoul 
Fri 19th Mar 2021
13:45, Fakenham

Looks our best chance on the day. Returned from a break and a wind op last month to run well in a NH Flat race on the AW at Lingfield last time (6th), but that was really to keep him ticking over during the bad weather with no hurdles races. Had some decent hurdles form before that last season and really that should hopefully set the standard here. Niall is also riding to take off a handy 3lbs, while that recent run seems to have brought him on nicely. Should go well and hopefully he can get off the mark here today.

Little Gem 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
19:25, Chelmsford

Has improved with every run for our yard and might have gone closer last time at Southwell if her rider hadn't dropped his whip over 2f out. This has been the plan since that race and I think the mile here should suit her well. Can run another solid race.

Headley George    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Simon and the team.


Thu 18th Mar 2021
18:55, Chelmsford

Runner up on last 3 starts including at this track and trip with today's rider. Has a similar chance here and should be thereabouts though wide draw no help.

Imperial Hope    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect for the Sherwood camp.


Thu 18th Mar 2021
17:05, Doncaster

Imperial Hope won a point-to-point in Ireland, there were only two finishers and as the pointing season was then halted hardly anything has run again since, so it’s an impossible race to asses. When he arrived here with me, Imperial Hope looked like a hat rack, he won his point on a Sunday came over to England the next day for the sales and after two days he travelled down to Lambourn, so we then gave him a quiet few weeks to recover. Imperial Hope is a tall horse who is still fairly unfurnished, he’s very chilled in himself but he does come alive once he gets upsides in his work. Not without a chance and I’m looking forward to seeing how he handles it all today but he can only improve with a good summer on his back.
Kilfilum Cross 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
16:50, Cheltenham

Been runner up in the last two runnings of this and this has been the target since last season again. Been hit and miss so far this term, but this has always been the target. Gets in here off a 3lb lower mark than last year, plus with this race now not ridden by the amateur riders we are able to claim a handy 3lbs with Alex Edwards. Several others, that were in the race last year too - like Plan Of Attack (4th), Bob Mahler (3rd), Deise Aba (5th), are of course respected, but we are hopeful the return to Cheltenham will spark him back to life after a nice 3 month break to freshen up for this. Looking forward to another good run and hopefully he can go one place better this year!

Tippingituptonancy 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
16:30, Doncaster

Took a good step forward last time out at Fakenham (4th) in a Mares' Only Chase - Down a pound for that and we've given her a small break since (few months), while the more galloping track and this longer trip we feel will help. Should be fine on the better ground too and with this only her third run over fences, then with a bit more improvement would have an e/w chance.

Cilaos Glace 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
15:55, Doncaster

Chilli ran well first time out at Wetherby when finishing second before disappointing on his second outing at Leicester, my horses weren’t exactly firing at that time so I’ve no idea if that made any difference. Chilli is not always easy to train he has niggly issues which can disrupt his training but fingers crossed I’ve had no problems with him recently and he’s had a clear run into today. He was initially a very strong horse on a racecourse so it’s taken time to be able to step him up in trip and I think this trip and track will suit him. Chilli is a big horse who has sometimes lacked confidence in his jumping, possibly due to his various problems, he seems to have overcome that issue so far this season and his schooling has been very good. Chilli may be more relaxed on a racecourse but he’s still pretty strong at times at home, he works really well and I still have every faith that there is a nice race in him somewhere if his niggles allow.
Kiltealy Briggs 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
15:40, Cheltenham

Kiltealy Briggs is a totally unexposed novice chaser.  He has had just the three starts over fences - he was 2nd over an inadequate 2m on seasonal debut, he was 3rd in a Grade 2 over 2m4 prior to Christmas, and was 4th over 3m at Sandown on his latest start where he appeared not to stay.  The drop back to 2m4 looks the right move for now, but I am sure he will stay 3m in time.  This looks mightily competitive, but if he can handle the hurly burly of a big field handicap then he is undoubtedly off a nice mark.

Kloud Gate 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
14:45, Doncaster

Not shown much since coming back from a break this season, but the better ground will help and is down 5lbs more here too. Also down in grade and returns to Donny - the scene of his last win and that came off a 7lb higher mark, albeit back in Dec 18. Look to have the Neil King horse to fear, but is certainly better than recent runs and should certainly be a lot more at home on today's ground.

Walk In The Wild 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
14:10, Doncaster

Wilfred has run ok in his first two races without yet showing what we see from him at home, there’s clearly more to come from him once he strengthens up properly. Wilfred is a big backward type who is still mentally quite immature, he was very flippant at his hurdles when we first began schooling him, mainly due to a lack of concentration so we sent him over to Laura Collett to work her magic and he’s been much better since. Wilfred is a nice horse to deal with and apart from the occasional buck he’s good to ride. Overall, just be happy with a step forward and will be better once handicapped. The Ralph, King and Twiston-Davies runners should be fighting this out.
West On Sunset 
Thu 18th Mar 2021
13:35, Doncaster

Fair filly but has only had three career runs - is still finding her feet and likely to be a lot more competitive once getting a handicap mark.

Treble Clef    WINNER! winner

Held on well for the Lee Carter yard.


Wed 17th Mar 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

Not the best draw in 11, but hopefully over this mile will have enough time to overcome that. Returns from a three month break here and starting to look well handicapped off a mark of 48 - 2lbs lower than last time. Connor Murtagh also booked to take off 3lbs so that helps, but into this Classified Stakes race we've a bit to find with some of these at the weights. Fit and well though, and these races don't always pan out as the weights suggest - if getting the breaks would have an e/w chance.

Subliminal 
Wed 17th Mar 2021

Having a good Winter here again and a regular at this trip. This is his toughest assignment yet and will need to have made further progress to really feature but experience at the track counts for a lot and sure to be staying on.

Zankala 
Wed 17th Mar 2021
16:40, Kempton Park

Zankala runs in the 5.15pm at Kempton today over 1 mile. She has shown very little in her lightly raced career and we are hoping to see more from her today. She has been in good form at home and hopefully she can replicate this on the track today. She has drawn 10 and Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Valletta Sunset 
Wed 17th Mar 2021
16:40, Kempton Park

Has more ability than he has shown on the racetrack - ran better last run when making the running so will try and adopt the same tactics with the cheekpieces reapplied. Just hopeful of a good run in a weak race.

Very green on debut - got left in the gates after being in for an age - should go a bit better here but likely to be one for the handicaps down the line.

Won round here back in November ground was far too soft for him when he ran again in December. The drying ground definitely plays to his strengths, the top two look well in and very hard to beat but looks a very open race after that. Goes best fresh and has not run since December with that in mind. 25s looks a big price especially if the ground continues to dry and could easily see him not being far away at the end

Hogans Height 
Wed 17th Mar 2021
15:40, Cheltenham

Hogan's Height won the Grand Sefton last year, and the Grand National has been the target ever since.  We're hoping to emulate Tiger Roll by using this as a springboard to Aintree.  He needed his prep run over hurdles at Wincanton, and loved schooling over these unique fences, and although he has never run over this distance before, there is plenty of stamina in his pedigree so we're hoping he goes there with a chance.....especially as our string remain in good form.

Fair debut run at Kempton over hurdles (4th) back in Jan and then since ran in that voided race at Plumpton. Has done well at home since and should have a fair chance today. The Wadham horse looks the danger - a fair flat horse, but has not been out for almost 2 years and hurdles debut, so hard to assess. Hoping our experience will be a plus and should be well suited by the ground and track.

Slightly backward gelding who has not shown much in 2 starts so far. He will be eligible for handicaps after today and should find that easier.

Looking forward to seeing how he gets on over this longer trip as we feel he's been crying out for it. Loves it here at Cheltenham too - recent runs here read 2-1-1, and even though we've a bit of ground to make up on Craigneiche, who beat us at Ascot last time, we are hoping the extra trip and the return to Prestbury Park will swing things a bit more in our favour. It's Cheltenham - so goes without saying competitive, but we are happy with the horse and hopeful he's got a decent each-way chance.

Yet to win from 8 starts but has been dropped 4lbs more here so that helps and we also feel the step up in trip is worth a try. Tighter track today too should help, but really overall just looking for a step forward from recent runs and build from that.

Sands Cove    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run from James' horse.


Wed 17th Mar 2021
13:10, Huntingdon

Still shows plenty of enthusiasm at home so we've decided to let him run again and hope he can jump well and enjoy himself. The form of his last run worked out well as the winner won several races after. Two years have elapsed though, so its difficult to rate his chance today. Anything like a return to that form would give him an e/w chance

Boma Green 
Tue 16th Mar 2021

Was desperatley unlucky over course and distance last time out. How he hasn't won a race yet I will never know! He is well drawn today too and seems in good form. Should be thereabouts.

Hard To Forget 
Tue 16th Mar 2021
16:35, Sedgefield

Poor runs the last twice - pulling up both times. But he's had a wind op since (which he needed) and we are hopeful that will help. Is back over fences here too and is rated 7lbs lower than when last seen over fences, Course winner and stays this trip well too - probably the sensible thing is to just see how he gets on with this being his first run back from the op, but last chase win came off a mark 4lbs higher than here, so certainly no shock if he ran well based on that. Looks well-in on some of his old form. Place chance. 

Nassalam 
Tue 16th Mar 2021
16:15, Cheltenham

We hoped earlier in the season he might be heading for the Triumph Hurdle on the Friday, but he's run slightly disappointing since bolting up at Fontwell at the end of last year. That said, he's been beaten by a few nice horses so all is certainly not lost and he remains a horse with a lot of potential - he's still only 4! This will also only be his sixth run over hurdles and is into a handicap for the first time here. He's well at home and we feel he'll like the track and the stiff finish. The only concern is that he's got a lot of weight here (11-10), being he's the joint top-rated in the field. Goes without saying a competitive race too, but looking forward to seeing how he gets on and certainly not without an e/w chance.

Leo Minor 
Tue 16th Mar 2021
15:55, Southwell

Bit to find on these terms in this Classified race, with most running of level weights. But he's been running okay recently without winning and we feel his chance might not be far away. The drop in trip will help back to 5f as ran well over 6f at Wolves last time for much of the way and has come out of that race well. Angus also helps take 5lbs off the saddle so actually that brings us a lot closer to the ones that are rated a tad higher than us too. Each-way chance.

Goshen 
Tue 16th Mar 2021
15:05, Cheltenham

D-day for Goshen here after what happened to him at the Festival last season. He's had his critics since after being beaten on the flat and then flopping in the International Hurdle here in December. But we saw the true Goshen back last time in the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton when he trounced a top field by 22 lengths. He's come out of that race well and had no issues at home since. Of course, that win moved him up the market and it looks a race between us Honeysuckle and the current champion - Epatante - but this is the Champion Hurdle, so you can't rule out anything! We are actually the joint top-rated in the field with Sharjah, but with the Honeysuckle and Epatante mares we have to give these two class acts 7lbs and that certainly won't be easy. But we could not be happier with Goshen and we are looking forward to the challenge - let's just hope he can put last year's Festival disappointment behind him and if we see the same Goshen as last time, and there is every reason to think we will from what we've seen at home, they we should have a big chance.

Durouyn 
Tue 16th Mar 2021

Didn't really get on with Catterick last time and the heavy ground, but would have a chance on his form before that when second and third at Sedgefield and Warwick. Better ground here will help too and returning to a track he's run well at recently. Several at the the head of the market have slightly more consistent profiles and the JP McManus horse is respected - but not without a small e/w chance. 

Giogiobbo 
Tue 16th Mar 2021
14:45, Southwell

Yet to win for us (13 runs) since coming from the Nick Littmoden yard and despite having 9 wins to his name they all came when trained in Italy and France - so is still looking for a first UK success. That said, has gone close many times and feel his turn might not be far away. Also ran better than final finishing position last time (4th) as only beaten 2 1/4 lengths in the end. Back up to 6f here is fine and a nice draw in 1 helps. Also in this higher grade we get in with a much lower weight - just 8st 8lbs, but can probably still only advise an average e/w play based on his overall record in this country.

Nice filly that is going the right way. Took another step in the right direction last time when a close second at Kempton over this 1m4f. Luke rides again but it seems a race that seems to revolve around the John Gosden Godolphin horse - Trawlerman - we'd have small e/w claims in a race that might lack depth.

Soyuz

Been in good order recently but all three AW wins have been at Southwell so a small bit to prove here at Wolves. That said has run okay here in the past, but the only niggle is his last win on the AW was off a 7lb lower mark. Should run well, but might the Simcock and Palmer runners are feared.

Mon 15th Mar 2021
16:25, Plumpton

The Sam Thomas runner in the race won well the last day so has to be the one to beat here. Our horse still have a chance though in this easier race than last time. Down a few pounds and we've a 7lb claimer on today too that also rode him last time, so that helps with his big weight (12-3). Looks a poor race outside the main three in the betting too, so really we'd be disappointed if he's not hitting the frame at worse.

Ruby Yeats    WINNER! winner

Landed the e/w money for Gary and the team.


Mon 15th Mar 2021
15:47, Plumpton

Midnight Callisto is feared here, but we feel Ruby should still have a fair e/w chance back at a track she's a proven CD winner at. Found the company a bit too hot up in grade last time at Ascot, but the winner has since won again, so the form isn't too bad. Back in grade here and the drop back in trip will also help. Not without a chance. Each-way.

Tractor Fred    WINNER! winner

Top call from Jamie - an easy 24 length winner!


Mon 15th Mar 2021
15:17, Plumpton

Is still a maiden, but he's gone close on several occasions. He hasn't shown much form this season, but he's drifting down the handicap and looks to be off a mark be can be very competitive off. We've waited for some slightly nicer ground and he seems to run well over fences at this track. So, he has the potential to go close. Fit and well too, so fingers crossed, but you can never trust these low-grade handicaps.

Invicta Lake 
Mon 15th Mar 2021

Old boy at the age of 14, but ran okay at Taunton last time out to keep going with him. Down 3lbs more and gets in here with just 10st in weight so that helps. Likes the track too and be fine on the ground, plus the longer trip should be more up his street here. Be nice to get another good run out of him and dropping mark and light weight, means he could get in the frame here.

West Lake    WINNER! winner

Ran on well for third - albeit well back.


Mon 15th Mar 2021
15:17, Plumpton

Former winning pointer, but only had 4 runs under Rules. Pulled up the last twice and only second run for the yard - we are trying the blinkers on today for the first time to see if they help, but this 11 year-old needs to show us more on the track. Best watched until we see more.

Should have a fair e/w chance here - anything else a bonus. Ran well at Taunton earlier this month (2nd) - albeit in a Seller, but was staying on well that day so the step up to 3m1f here should be right up his street. Has won over 3m2f before too and should hopefully find the pace a bit easier here after having to be kept up to his work a long way out last time. Decent e/w chance.

Ran well two runs about at Chepstow and only got as far as the third hurdle last time out at Hereford when falling. Okay after that and gets in here off the same mark. Lorcan also able to claim 3lbs here and the drop back in trip is fine. Soft ground no issue and we feel there will be more to come from him. Hopeful of a good run and shouldn't be far away, with an e/w chance.

King Cool

14:17, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us and we think has a better chance of getting something. Only fourth run over fences here today (1 win) and has been kept fit with a run last time at Lingfield in a NH Flat race (AW). 5lbs higher than chase win, but should be more to come from him and will enjoy the ground. Each-way chance.

Casa Loupi 
Mon 15th Mar 2021
12:30, Stratford upon Avon

Has run well in both his hurdles starts to date - without getting his head in front, but the form is working out well with the horse he's been second to twice Tritonic well-fancied for the Triumph on Friday. Looks to have the Skelton horse to beat, but we get 6lbs from that one too and really we'd be disappointed if he's not getting off the mark today - easily our best chance of a winner today.

Stormingin 
Sun 14th Mar 2021
17:08, Lingfield Park

Nice draw in 3 and down another 2lbs here from his last run. The step up in trip will be fine and Anna, who rode the horse two starts ago, can claim 7lbs too. Does, however, have a bit to prove on the AW (0-from-9), but that said has run well here at Lingfield in the past and dropping mark would give him a squeak. But does look a race that the Kirby horse - Iconic Belle - will be hard to beat, with the Carroll and Fahey runners also players - so a small place chance is probably the best we can hope for.

Detatched    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run from Henry's horse.


Sun 14th Mar 2021
16:50, Warwick

Back over hurdles here after not quite taking to fences last time. Is 2lbs lower than last run over hurdles here and Ben is back riding - he won on the horse last November at Uttoxeter. Ground will be fine and has run well at the track before. Can be a bit hit and miss, but doesn't look that good a race so certainly capable on his best form of running well.

Bebraveforglory 
Sun 14th Mar 2021

Blew away the cobwebs last time at Wetherby with a fair run - just getting a bit tired in the closing stages. That was his first time on the track for 3 months and also first run back from a wind op, so very encouraging. Can also be expected to have improved for it, plus the drop back to 2m is in his favour. Down a pound too and Conor Brace a decent jockey booking for this conditional jockeys' race. Very open affair, but should have a fair e/w chance. 

Pablo Del Pueblo 
Sun 14th Mar 2021
15:58, Lingfield Park

Great sort of horse and smashing pedigree but very free and awkward on debut. He will know more about it this time but has to learn to control his nerves and badly needs to get his confidence. Has plenty of ability and would stay further if he gave himself a chance so not a total surprise if he puts up a better performance today. 

A Time To Shine 
Sun 14th Mar 2021
15:42, Warwick

A Time To Shine was placed in a point-to-point in Ireland before we bought him and he then went on to finish third in two hurdle races. He’s a huge rangey horse that is an exceptional jumper and hurdles almost seemed to small for him, so we sent him chasing last time out at Hereford, where he was a fast finishing second. He only made one mistake and unfortunately it was two out, otherwise he would probably have beaten the winner. Hereford was sharp enough for him, I think he’d prefer a much more galloping track and Warwick is all about jumping and another four furlongs should suit him.

Western Climate 
Sun 14th Mar 2021
15:42, Warwick

We won this race 12 months ago with this horse and loves it here at Warwick - his recent form here reads 2-1-4-1. However, he's not getting any younger at 12 and is also rated 12lbs higher than when winning this last year. Needs to bounce back from a poor run last time, but despite his age is still loving his racing and won here on New Year's Eve well. Up 5lbs for that and up in trip to 3m5f, but we know he stays well and that will be his biggest asset over some of the others. Had a small break to ready for this and seems well at home. Fingers crossed for another big run - each-way.

Sea Of Charm 
Sun 14th Mar 2021
13:53, Lingfield Park

Tight little race but should have every chance if coping with the step up to 1m. Ran well here (2nd) last time (7f) and with that coming off 5 1/2 month break then will be a lot fitter for that. She's up to 1m, which we feel should suit and with just four career runs there will be more to come. Luke, who rode last time, remains in the saddle and being dropped a few more pounds helps. Should not be far away, but - as mentioned - it's a race that you could make a case for all six!

Capla Spirit

Been running with a lot of consistency recently - another close third at Lingfield last time out over this trip. But creeping up the handicap again - 4lbs higher than last time and up in grade here too. On a plus, we get in with a light weight (8-2) and another gutsy performance on the cards, but would need a career-best to take this against six rivals all rated higher than us, but with a featherweight can hopefully still make presence felt.

Was meant to run last week, but annoyingly we had to withdraw him. Dropping to 10f is probably not ideal but options are limited for him at the moment. To make things harder he is drawn wide too!

Battled on well for the Henry Oliver yard.


Sat 13th Mar 2021
16:37, Hereford

Is going nicely at home and has done well since having another wind op (third) at the end of last year. First run back since that here but looks a nice race to get going again with her. Also returns on a winning mark, as last success came off a pound higher, plus Ben's 5lb claim a plus too. Also a CD winner that acts well on the ground, so certainly not out of this despite looking the likely outsider of the five runners.

High Up In The Air 
Sat 13th Mar 2021
15:35, Sandown

Done nothing wrong this season and risen up the ranks with 5 wins on the spin over fences. Up another 9lbs here from his recent Fontwell success and up into a Class 1 Listed Chase makes life a lot harder. But is a proven course winner here and will like conditions. Remains in good heart - any rain would help though, but deserves to take his chance and let's see how he comes with the rise in grade. Each-way chance.

Pulled up the last day but the heavy/soft ground wasn't ideal and was highly-tried that day in a G2. Into calmer waters here and back on a quicker surface here will help. Also ran well here at Hereford back in November in a maiden hurdle so we know the track is fine. Into a handicap for the first time too and that should make him more competitive. Should be more to come from him and small e/w chance.

Juans Les Pins runs in the 3.15pm at Wolverhampton over six furlongs. We decided to give him a little break after he disappointed last start at Chelmsford. He is in good order at home and this looks a nice spot to start him off in. The dangers look to be the David O'Meara and Clive Cox trained runners. He has drawn well in one and Luke Morris takes the ride.

Former decent flat horse that has done well since coming to us and switching to hurdles. Liked the better ground at Plumpton last time to get off the mark at the third try over the sticks and hopefully he can kick on now. Up a hefty 16lbs in the rating for that and into this much better race, but his proven flat speed will be a big asset and we get in here still with a nice racing weight (10-12). Been well supported all week and easy to see why. His inexperience over hurdles is the only slight negative and in a race like this will need to settle a bit better, but a lovely horse that is hopefully the one to beat. He'd probably not want any more rain to be at his best - so the drying conditions (if that's how the afternoon pans out) will help.

Bringthehousedown 
Sat 13th Mar 2021
14:17, Hereford

Although only sixth at Uttoxeter I was happy enough with Bringthehousedown as he has been difficult to train. He has big flat feet and they have needed constant attention from our farrier Ben Wishart. He's got on top of him now but the horse is still quite backward and will only be competitive once he gets a handicap mark and can run against his own class.

Ocean Drifter 
Sat 13th Mar 2021
13:50, Sandown

After finishing second on debut Ocean Drifter won his next two races thereby qualifying for this race. I deliberately saved him for it and took the chance to give him a break with Chris and Clairey Bonney who run a pre-training yard nearby and do such a great job with all our youngsters. He's come back in great shape and we're looking forward to the run. Super competitive, but a nice horse that is improving all the time. Each-way.

Dorking Lad 
Sat 13th Mar 2021
13:50, Sandown

Ran in that voided race at Plumpton last time - yet to win a race but been close several times with 4 seconds or thirds over hurdles. Competitive race but in this higher grade we get in with a fair racing weight. Should have another each-way chance, but as I say, a race with many chances.

Hudson De Grugy    WINNER! winner

Another win for Gary's improving hurdler.


Sat 13th Mar 2021
13:15, Sandown

With the non-runners in the race or not - looks my standout runner on the day in terms of a winner. Only three others to beat now at the time of writing and a hurdler going the right way. Won well again here last time out in similar conditions and with just two runs over hurdles should have much more to come. Also had a nice break since that last win and seems to have come on at home since. Probably have the O'Brien horse to fear most, but we'd be disappointed if he can't take this.

Toro Dorado 
Sat 13th Mar 2021
12:55, Wolverhampton

Toro Dorado runs in the 12.55pm at Lingfield over 1m2f. He ran a very good race last start and was a touch unlucky not to get his head in front. He has come out of this race in good order and this looks the logical next option for him. The one to beat in my opinion is the Mark Loughnane trained Starfighter who has some good form and Mark's horses are in great order at the moment. Toro has drawn seven and Luke Morris takes the ride.

Sognatore 
Fri 12th Mar 2021

16:40, Wolverhampton

Poor race here for this 0-50 Classified Stakes, plus we are helping further with Angus Villiers claiming 5lbs. Good draw in 2 helps, but is still looking for his first AW win from 25 runs. We've a bit to find on these terms with some, but the jockey Angus's claim will help bring us closer to the likes of Ancient Astronaut, Twice As Likely and Andre Amar, who the three rated the highest in the race. In good shape and the hood remains on. A chance, but will need to break better from stall 2 as also been slowly away the last twice.

Fair third at Catterick last time out over 2m, but even though didn't stay earlier in his career we feel the step up to 2m4f now will help as stayed on well the last day. Down a few pounds and we've booked Alex Edwards, who can claim 3lbs too. Has a big weight 12st 3lbs, but that's for a reason - we are the clear top-rated in the field. Alex's claims will help with the weight burden and in the ground, but we feel he's got a live chance here and should go well with ground and track fine.

Apollinaris

Winner here over 7f at the start oof the year but too free since in two similar races. Back to sprinting last Saturday he stayed on over 5f in a slightly weaker race. This trip could be ideal and he could easily pick up some of the pieces late on if they go hard and he gets a nice run round.

Fri 12th Mar 2021
13:55, Sandown

Tough race with Starvoski being an impressive winner last time. Hopefully e/w chances though today as the horse is in good order and has been kept fit with a run in a NH Flat race at Lingfield last time.

Wake Up Harry 
Fri 12th Mar 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

Exciting prospect and going the right way at the moment. Had a break since a comfortable success here at the start of the year and will be better for the race but no surprise to see him involved in what looks a fair novice for this time of year.

Beat The Breeze    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Fri 12th Mar 2021
12:30, Lingfield Park

Hat trick of wins this Winter including penultimate start here over this track and trip. Always ridden by this top rider who knows him well and he probably needed his last start after a break. Could easily get back on an upward curve at this level if his fitness has improved.

Roca Magica 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
20:00, Newcastle

She ran a promising race first up this year and has come out of this race well. This looks a nice option for her and the horse to beat on paper looks to be the Brian Ellison trained runner who has fit a rich vein of form. She has drawn well in four and Rab Havlin takes the ride.

Furlough Me    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third - looks a horse to follow for the Moore yard.


Thu 11th Mar 2021
17:35, Wincanton

Probably not a race to get too involved in with a lot of newcomers and lightly-raced sorts. But we feel our runner is not a bad horse and has been doing the right things at home ahead of this debut. Jamie rides so will have every assistance from the saddle. Would certainly not be shocked to see this 5 yea-old run well and could easily sneak a place. Regardless is one to watch going forward.

Break The Silence 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
16:40, Southwell

Continues to look well handicapped on older form but not been sparkling recently. Will strip fitter for his last run as that came off a 5 month break but still need to see more on the track. This better grade means a lighter racing weight and acts well on the track, but a return to form on the course would give us more confidence. 

Samovar 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
15:35, Southwell

A race that's been good to us over the years - wins in 2018, 2016 and 2012. After a long run of near misses, Samovar has won two of his last four - both here. We gave him a small break since his last run as had to run wide that day and ran way below par. Likes to dominate and was unable to do so that last day. Luke Morris, who won on him on New Year's Day, is back in the saddle and with a better break here can go well in a race that he's been second in for the last two seasons!

Scale Force 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
15:35, Southwell

Won well here over 5f three runs ago but been unable to follow up since with three thirds since over 6f. The drop back to 5f will help as all three career wins have been over the minimum trip. Would need a career-best off this rating, but remains in good form and should make a bold bid - does look a race with a lot of chances, this could be decided by a fine margin or a split decision.

Duke Of Firenze 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
15:35, Southwell

Old-timer that is still loving his racing - having his 106th outing today! After two runs up at Newcastle returns to Southwell - the scene of his last win. Only 2lbs higher than that success and seems to enjoy running on the fibresand. Likes to be held up and come with a late run and that will hopefully be the plan again here. Expected to be involved.

Walk In The Wild 
Thu 11th Mar 2021

Cheque En Blanc 
Thu 11th Mar 2021
14:50, Wincanton

Won well at Fontwell last time out over fences - switching to hurdles here today as gets in here off the same rating as when winning last time. Has run well at the track in the past too and well after 3 weeks off since that last win. Trip, ground and trip all fine too - should go well, with the Bishop horse probably the one to beat.

Only just failed to get up but e/w money still landed.


Wed 10th Mar 2021
20:15, Kempton Park

Has been running well this year - she was slightly disappointing last run but was found to come back with a slight problem so can be forgiven that run. She drops in grade here and has a good draw (4). She should have a good each-way chance.

Global Destination 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
20:15, Kempton Park

This is a very weak race and we are hopeful to see a return to form for him after some disappointing performances. He has drawn well in two and Rab Havlin takes the ride.

Mungos Quest 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
19:45, Kempton Park

Still a maiden and not much promise in recent starts either. Has ability and should win a small race. This is his grade so might go well at a big price.

Savitar 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
19:15, Kempton Park

Chica Del Dia 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
18:45, Kempton Park

Maiden but small amount of promise on recent starts and this track could suit her well. Low grade fare and at this level anything can happen so could go well at a big price and has a small race in her.

Arenas Del Tiempo 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
18:15, Kempton Park

Fair maiden who shaped with promise on debut at this track. Not so good after a break but in better shape now and will find it easier now handicapped. Can get excited but if things go well for her she should run well.

Bowland Park 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
17:45, Kempton Park

Missed the backend of last season with a sinus infection - excited to get him back in action, in what looks an interesting race and steps up in trip again here.

Heers Sadie 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

Is a sweet filly and goes nicely at home - she has a wide draw here but will learn plenty and should out run her odds - just looking for her to learn from the experience.

Dew You Believe 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

He was disappointing first time out when he got startled and missed the break. He has been in good form and this should be a nice option for him. There has been money for Tom Clover's newcomer and the Michael Bell trained runner looks the horse to beat on paper. Rab Havlin takes the ride.

Bungledupinblue 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
16:10, Kempton Park

Won well last time from a poor draw. Tough and consistent filly, who loves her racing and with a clear run should go close. Laura Pearson takes the ride and claims a handy 5lbs.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
16:10, Kempton Park

Frustrating maiden whose best form is at this track. Ran well here for today's rider on return after a break over a bit further and this might suit her better. Drawn a bit wide but may well outrun her odds.

A Pint Of Bear 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
15:55, Lingfield Park

Both career wins have come at Southwell, but did run well here two runs ago, when a close second. But this looks quite a hot race for the grade, with no fewer than 5 recent winners in the field, of which a few are unexposed. We were also 9 lengths adrift of Secret Handsheikh last time out, so a fair bit to find on that running too. The pluses are a good draw in 1, a light weight and Luke riding but does need to bounce back from last time and on that run it would be a surprise if he's good enough.

Smiths Cross 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
15:10, Catterick

Been a bit frustrating as yet to get off the mark over hurdles or fences (14 runs), but another solid run last time at Newcastle when second. Just seemed to get going a bit too late the last day so will need to keep more in touch here at this tighter track. Acts on all ground though and seems in good heart so should be thereabouts, but we do respect Fire Away and Dandolo Du Gite.

Quiet Penny 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
15:02, Fontwell Park

Cafe Milano 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Frustrating maiden who regularly takes minor honours at this track. Generally tried over further this return to a mile is not sure to suit but worth a try and likely to be involved if it works. Either way he should find a race soon. 

Fortissimo 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Nice draw in 2 and a horse that is having his debut for us after coming from the Mark Johnston yard. But last run came back at the end of Jan 20, so back from a long time off here. Has shown bits of ability in the past, but currently 0-from-11. We'll find out more here too, but we feel the step back up to 1m will suit and he at least returns on a career-low mark and 3lbs lower than last time, but overall with the layoff expected to be sharper for this today.

Sashenka 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:40, Catterick

Three promising runs since joining us - two seconds over hurdles and a third in a NH Bumper on the AW at Lingfield last time out. Returns to Catterick - ran here two starts ago - and the winner of that race, Anythingforlove, has since franked the form by landing a Grade 2! She's had a small break since her last outing to freshen up and seems well for it - Probably got the Skelton horse to fear most, but we'd be disappointed if she's not in the mix.

Jersey Wonder    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:32, Fontwell Park

Considering he lost his legs when jumping an early flight on hurdles debut at Taunton, Jersey Wonder ran creditably staying on well after being allowed to recover by Gavin Sheahan. He's run in two jumpers' bumpers since then, running well in the first then clearly taking little interest in the latest. He's a character and it depends on his mood. He could run well but if he decides it's not his day there's little his rider can do about it. Jonathan Burke has that job today.

Rocco Du Berlais 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:32, Fontwell Park

Hard to get too excited on what we've seen so far - will be better once getting a handicap mark.

Twenty Twenty 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:00, Fontwell Park

Second runner here for us - well back the last two days but this easier company than last time will help. Better ground is fine too and like the track here (course winner). Only a few pounds higher than his win three runs back and should have more to come over fences. A race with many chances, so each-way claims.

Elisezmoi 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
14:00, Fontwell Park

Not been out since Feb 20 so returning from just over a year off. Had a wind op during that time too and only third run over fences here. Still has time on his side (7 years-old) and fit and well for his return. Nice to get back going with him and even though he's sure to improve for this, would not be too shocked to see him run okay here either - especially if more rain comes as likes it soft/heavy! Jamie rides.

Rosy World 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
13:30, Fontwell Park

Was very keen last time after a lay-off and burnt herself out. Wears a hood today and that has been helping at home too. Needs the rain to come and her minimum trip but would have place claims here today.

In The Genes 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
13:15, Lingfield Park

She showed signs of improvement last start when hitting the line strongly in a similar contest here at Lingfield. We have decided to step her up in trip to hopefully seek further improvement and this looks the obvious option. Mark Johnston's Ladywood is the horse to beat on paper and we are hopeful of another improved performance. Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Gentlemans Dream    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gary's horse.


Wed 10th Mar 2021
13:00, Fontwell Park

Second runner in this race for us and not without a chance either - kept ticking over in a jumpers flat race at Kempton last time out and wasn't far back despite coming 7th. Back over fences here and the better ground should help. Needs to bounce back from his last run over fences when stopping quickly at Plumpton, but is better than that and his run before that at Hereford would give him small e/w claims too.

Little Awkward 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
12:30, Fontwell Park

A bumper winner, Little Awkward switched to hurdling at Plumpton in December and won impressively, jumping very well. He's had niggly issues since but should be ready to run his race and is the main opposition to the hot favourite.

Ozzie Man 
Wed 10th Mar 2021
12:30, Fontwell Park

Nice run last time - taking a step forward here to be second in a NH Flat race. Schooled well since over hurdles and makes debut in this sphere today. Quicker ground okay and should run a nice race, but the top two in the betting might just have the experience edge on us here.

Moveonup 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
19:40, Southwell

Actually wasn't wasn't beaten far here last time despite coming sixth of 8. Down a few pounds for that helps and a CD winner over this trip here too - last win came off a 4lb higher mark so based on that not without a squeak. But we do need to see a bit more consistency on the track - hoping that last run was a sign of a return to form. That said, the in-form Murphy runner might be hard for us all to beat.

Bond Angel    WINNER! winner

Powered home to win well for Scott


Tue 9th Mar 2021
19:10, Southwell

Has a decent AW record with 8 wins from 34 runs and 17 top three finishes. Acts well at the track and has been running well here over 1m of late. Drop back to 7f is fine and this is a slight drop in grade from that last too - that will help and should have as good a chance as any in what looks competitive for the grade. Each-way.

De Bruyne Horse 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
19:10, Southwell

Gutsy winner here two starts ago but couldn't add to that off 5lbs higher here last time. Down 2lbs helps so now only 3lbs higher than that recent win, plus wasn't the best away last time (got wiped out), so had to use up a bit more than needed to get back into the race - that took it's toll later on. Remains in good form after almost 2 weeks off and another bold show on the cards - each-way call though in a race with a lot of chances.

Giogiobbo 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
16:40, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us - Continues to drop down the handicap after failing to win from his 12 runs since coming to us and having been rated as high as 103 in his prime then his current mark of 70 tells it's own story. Luke a plus in the saddle and only 3 3/4 lengths behind Ornate when last running here and that horse won a good race at the weekend. Only negative is that he's still to win here and all career wins have been over a bit further, but dropping mark and grade will surely make him dangerous soon - probably of my two in the race has the better chance of getting something.

Gossip 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
16:40, Southwell

Both career wins came over this CD so that's a plus - the last of those off this rating too. Didn't really enjoy Newcastle last time so can ignore that and in this better grade than his last run here, he gets in here with a low weight - just 8-6. Does probably, however, need to bounce back from a few average runs, but the return to the fibresand will help.

Cool Spirit 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
16:40, Southwell

CD winner here, but well back recently here. Only had two career runs for us though so still learning about the horse and  3lbs lower here. Trying him in a higher grade so he's got a lot less racing weight too. Has improved again at home and will be winning races, but need to see a return to form on the track - hoping the hood, that is on today, will help bring him forward.

Shattered Glass 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
15:10, Exeter

Hopeful of a big run after taking a big step forward last time at Market Rasen when a close second. Only 3lbs higher here but that looks fair and the stiffer track here at Exeter will suit. Has also come out of that last race well and Tom rides.

What A Glance 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
13:35, Exeter

We've been having a quiet ten days since our last runner and What A Glance will be our first of the month. He has run respectably in a couple of hurdle races on ground that was not ideal and I think he's much more of a spring/summer horse. He should be handicapped after today and hopefully have a good campaign from then on.

Cape Robin 
Tue 9th Mar 2021
13:00, Exeter

Former winning Pointer but yet to build on that under rules - only had three career runs though and into a handicap for the first time helps. Has also had a wind op since his last run so hoping he can kick on now, but would prefer to see a few more runs under his belt. Five Star Getaway looks the obvious one.

Olivers Pursuit 
Mon 8th Mar 2021
19:10, Wolverhampton

CD winner here but into a claimer here and we've a bit to find on these terms with the likes of Unforgiving Minute and Mythical Madness, who are rated 19lbs and 23lbs higher than us - basically the race didn't cut up the way we liked. Good draw in 1 and George's 5lb claim help though, but probably a small place chance is the best we can hope for.

Dream Design 
Mon 8th Mar 2021
17:10, Wolverhampton

Has shown plenty of ability at home - would expect her to learn from the experience here but if she's able to put it together on her first day at school then should run a nice race.

Caffe Macchiato    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take fourth.


Mon 8th Mar 2021
15:40, Southwell

Fair flat form in France but yet to sparkle over here. Had a wind operation since his last run though and three months off to get over that. Also into a handicap for the first time here helps and doesn't look too badly treated with Charlie's 5lb claim too. Should be more to come from him and off this light weight no surprise to see him run better now into a handicap. Each-way.

Mr Chua 
Mon 8th Mar 2021
15:05, Southwell

Very pleased with his win at Catterick last time out - his first success over hurdles. Did it nicely that day and escapes a penalty for that as a conditional riders' race. Bryan rides again and is able to claim 3lbs this time so we are actually a bit better off too. Trip and ground ideal and has come out of that last race well - should go well and hopeful him can follow up as took his racing well on the flat so hoping the 6 day gap between races is okay.

Three Bullet Gate  
Mon 8th Mar 2021
15:05, Southwell

A talented individual who has not had a straightforward time of it. Off the track since November 19 though, and consequently may need this run. 

Up For Parol    WINNER! winner

Eased down for a smooth success - looks a nice sort for Jamie.


Mon 8th Mar 2021
14:10, Wetherby

Won his Point on debut pretty impressively. He was a tad disappointing on hurdling debut when fourth over 2m3f on heavy ground, but he travelled and jumped great that day, so this drop in trip looks the right move at this stage of his career. He should have come on for that run too, so I'd like to see an improved effort here today. This doesn't look a deep race so he should have every chance up against a very consistent sort of Donald's.

Northern Beau 
Mon 8th Mar 2021
13:00, Southwell

Consistent chaser that likes to get on with things from the front. Dropped in grade here and into a mares' only chase so that will help, but still ran well last time at Newcastle in a slightly better race and lost a shoe in that contest too! We feel the visor will help here too and hopeful of a bold bid from the front, with the longer trip no issue (has won over 2m4f).

Optimistic Bias 
Mon 8th Mar 2021
12:30, Southwell

Ground went against him in the Lincoln National last time out. Small field and better ground should suit him better today and if the cheekpieces can get his usually sound jumping back on track then has an e/w chance.

Galatic Power     WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Sun 7th Mar 2021
16:40, Huntingdon

Might be a tall order for us all to beat the Skelton horse, who could be ahead of the handicapper still after an easy win last time out. We'd have a fair chance of a place though in a race that doesn't look the best - especially after his decent fourth at Taunton last time out. Dropped a pound for that and returns to a track he's won at before. Ground is fine too and the step up in trip is not an issue - was a close second over 3m at Ludlow back in December. Place claims, but the market leader will be hard to beat.

Jefferson Davis 
Sun 7th Mar 2021
16:40, Huntingdon

Pulled up the last three times and hard to get too jiggy until we see more. On a plus, is another 4lbs lower here and the quicker ground will certainly help - has won twice on good ground. Poor race that lacks depth so you never know, but the Skelton horse will be hard to beat.

Twasnt The Plan 
Sun 7th Mar 2021
16:30, Sedgefield

18 races now without a win, but many places to his name. Down the field on his return at Chepstow last month, but 7lbs better off here being dropped 4lbs and the jockey's claim. This also represents a drop in grade and that last run was his first back from a wind op so hoping he can gain more confidence this time. At his lowest career rating and not the best race, but does need step up on the track.

Copper Coin    WINNER! winner

Top winner for this Michael Scudamore runner.


Sun 7th Mar 2021
16:05, Huntingdon

Had an excuse last time as lost a shoe in the race so can ignore that run at Ascot. Dropped 4lbs though helps and we've given him a break since. Has shown ability, but still a maiden (8 runs) - however, this is only his second run over fences and chasing has always been the plan for him. Had a little break (4 months) since his last run and seems well for it - is also a horse that seems to enjoy running off a lay-off and being fresh. If building on that debut run over fences would have an e/w chance.

Bolt N Brown    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third at 33/1!


Sun 7th Mar 2021
15:35, Huntingdon

Goes well here over hurdles and another solid effort last time when 4th of 7. Dropped a few pounds helps and the slightly quicker ground will also be to her liking. Not without small place claims if the race falls apart a bit, but still only has the one career win to her name. Jamie Moore rides.

Cap St Vincent 
Sun 7th Mar 2021
14:20, Sedgefield

Delighted with his run at Chepstow last time out, when a close second. That came off a small break and seems to have improved at home since. That also came over hurdles, but reverts to chasing here on a 7lb higher mark, but all four career wins have been over the bigger obstacles. Probably needs a career-best to win off this mark - last win came off 3lbs lower, but after last time we are hopeful the longer trip here will bring out a bit more improvement and if that's the case would have an e/w shout here.

Feel The Thunder 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
20:30, Southwell

Lightly raced with this only being his fourth career run - had some issues and last seen back in Jan 20, so returning from a fair old break. Nice to be getting him on the track again, but a watching brief here for now after such a time off.

Break The Silence 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
20:00, Southwell

Having his 67th career run here today - we've given him a bit of a break (4 1/2 months) as wasn't firing at the end of last year and returns here on a 3lb lower mark. Track and trip are fine, plus certainly capable on old form in a race like this - but draw 11 not ideal and probably would like to see a resurgence of form on the track before passing anything more positive on.

Bealach 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
19:30, Southwell

Mukha Magic 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
18:30, Southwell

Won well here two runs back and then ran into the improving Caribeno last time, who is rattling up a sequence of wins. Therefore, wasn't too disappointed to be 4 1/2 lengths off that horse last time. Only five runners here and looks a tight little race between us and three of the others. But we've got a useful 7lb claimer on today and with that doesn't look too badly treated on his past form. Well at home and we know the fibresand suits - should go close.

Soros 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
18:00, Southwell

Bond Angel 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
17:30, Southwell

CD winner that acts well here at the track. Another good run last time when second over this CD - up a pound for that and no 5lb claimer on this time, plus we are also up in grade here so more on her plate. Good overall record on the AW with 16 top three runs from 33 (48%), so that would suggest e/w claims here. 

Datsalrightgino 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
17:15, Doncaster

Datsalrightgino is a lovely young horse. We've always thought a fair bit of him, and he looks to be thriving and improving, getting stronger, and he is very much an imposing individual now. He hasn't necessarily had the rub of the green to date in his three runs, but he has been placed on all three occasions and providing things go his way today, he looks to have a good opportunity here.

Some Chaos 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
16:05, Doncaster

Has progressed really well over fences but back over hurdles here on a much lower rating than his chase mark - 20lbs lower. Had a nice break since his last run and goes well fresh. Ready to run and will be fine over the trip and on this better ground. Only concern is that at the moment his chase form is better than over hurdles (yet to win over hurdles, 6 runs), but in his defence has never had his ground over hurdles. It's hard to ignore his lower rating and based on that must have a leading chance as there is no reason why he can't be as good over the smaller obstacles.

Skandiburg    WINNER! winner

Nice debut run for the Snowden yard.


Sat 6th Mar 2021
16:05, Doncaster

Skandiburg is making his debut for us this afternoon. He has some good hurdling form to his name, but hasn't looked the most natural over a fence this season. He arrived with us a few months ago now, and he should appreciate being back over the smaller obstacles. The application of a tongue tie should help, and he has the ability to feature here, but he's on a career high mark, so needs to find some improvement too.

Maazel 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
15:11, Lingfield Park

Not run too badly the last twice - didn't get the best of runs last time here over 1m and wasn't the best away either. Bit of an experiment here today with the trip - stepping him up to 1m4f for the first time, but ran well to stay on over 1m2f here two runs ago to suggest it's certainly worth a crack. If he sees it out then would open up more doors and would have a small e/w chance, but the market leader - Almost You - who won well last time might be ahead of the handicapper.

The Big Bite    WINNER! winner

Place money landed, but threw away the race in the closing stages by hanging!


Sat 6th Mar 2021
13:50, Newbury

Lovely horse that came to us at the end of last year. Won well on debut for us at Aintree and ran a cracker to be second to the useful Ibleo at Doncaster last time. Trying him back up in trip (2m4f) but has won over this distance in the past and the quicker ground today will certainly be much more to his likely. Decent race, but we feel we've got a fair each-way chance.

Do Your Job    WINNER! winner

Much improved run from Scu's horse.


Sat 6th Mar 2021
13:30, Kelso

Nice horse that won twice earlier this season at Ffos Las and Ayr. Highly-tried last time in the Tolworth but never ran a yard that day and wasn't his true running. Another tough race here today for this Grade Two Novice and better ground is fine - we always thought it would suit better. We've also given the horse a wind op since his last outing to help with his breathing, while we are also putting the tongue-tie on here too. First run back from the wind ops always suggest a bit of caution, but seems well at home and looking forward to seeing how he gets on. My Drogo, Any News and Lucky One do seem to set a fair standard though, but should give a decent account.

Ornate    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win for Dave's speedy front-runner!


Sat 6th Mar 2021
13:25, Lingfield Park

Ran well last week in a Listed Hever Sprint Stakes here - just getting run out of things in the closing stages. Back into a handicap here helps and draw 4 if fine. Should blast out again and another bold bid from the front on the cards, with the cheekpieces on to help - hopefully he can hang on for longer this time, but goes without saying Tone The Barone, with Moore riding, is the clear danger.

Marnie James 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
13:25, Lingfield Park

Decent sprinter that's been rated as high as 105 in his prime. Down 10lbs from that high here and only second run for us. Ran really well last time at Chelmsford after a 471 day break so can be expected to come on for that. 3lbs lower here and we've only 2 3/4 lengths to fine with Tone The Barone here, who is the likely favourite. Nice draw in stall 1 helps and might have more to offer on the AW with this only his fourth run on the sand surfaces (first run here). Tough race, but small e/w chance at a nice price.

Been plenty written about this 11year-old over the years - and for his ability should really have won more than just once over fences (20 runs) and was 8th in the 2019 Grand National. But is often never far away (been 2nd 5 times). Only third run for us and has run two solid races at Sandown and Doncaster. Didn't go to plan last time and plan to ride him closer to the pace. Into another Vets race here, so racing against horses aged 10+. Had a small break after his last run, but does like to run fresh. Down 3lbs more in the ratings and is now on a fair mark (12lbs lower than his National run). Will love the good ground and this 3m2f trip fine, so off this nice mark, certainly not without a chance and deserves to win another race! Probably an each-way play though.

Apollinaris 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Won over 7f here but too free last twice and back to sprinting will give him a chance to settle. Sure to be staying on at the line and is made for Lingfield so no surprise if he picks up the pieces late on.

Caldwell    WINNER! winner

Another decent run from Scu's horse.


Sat 6th Mar 2021
12:25, Kelso

Gaining more experience by each race after two fair runs at Wetherby and Warwick since coming to us from the Dermot Weld yard. Yes, beaten a fair way in 2nd and 4th in those races but stripping fitter and the form of his last run has been given a big boost with the winner - Cabot Cliffs - bolting up at the end of last month. Also didn't jump too well last time so we've done a lot of schooling since. Should be happier on this better ground and with a bit more improvement should have a decent e/w chance and shouldn't be far away.

Ahdab 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
12:15, Lingfield Park

He was impressive last time out here when going away to win quite comfortably. He is in good form at home and this looks a nice option for him. He has drawn well in one and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

Golden Force 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
12:15, Lingfield Park

Is generally consistent but everything went wrong from a wide draw last time out. He is much better than that and can bounce back today and run a much better day. Goes without saying the Dunlop horse is respected, but hoping we can give him a race.

Viaduct 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
12:15, Lingfield Park

Making his stable debut here today - a horse that came to us from the Martyn Meade yard. Only had six career runs and only win so far came at Bath on the turf. On a plus, that success came off a break so the 4 month break might not be as bad as it looks and has settled in well at home. We'll, of course, find out more here and really might be hard-pressed to beat the Dunlop horse anyway.

Visibility 
Sat 6th Mar 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

Grabbed another nice win at Wolves last time out and has come out of that race well. Up 6lbs for that though and Jonathan Fisher can't claim 5lbs this time so does need to find more. Also switching to Lingfield here but has run okay here in the past when with another yard. Good draw in 1 helps too and the way he won last time suggested there is a bit more in the locker. A race with many chances and we are one of three recent winners in the field - probably needs a step forward again with the Spencer and Evans runners feared, but no shock to see us go well again here - Each-way.

Leo Minor 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
19:15, Newcastle

Running from a pound out of the handicap here but we still get in with a nice low weight. Last career win back in June 2018 but has dropped down the ratings since and often never too far away in his races. Bit to find with Billy Wedge, who bet us two runs ago, but we've since run better and Leo lost a shoe in that race two starts ago too! The hood that was on last time is on again today and Graham, who rode last time, is a plus again in the saddle. We take on the horse that beat us last time - Wicklow Warrior (3 lengths) - but we are 7lbs better off this time so that gives us plenty of hope we can get a lot closer this time.

Blazer Two 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
18:45, Newcastle

Very competitive race for the grade, but Blazer is well after an improved fifth (of 12) last time at Kempton. Wasn't the best away that day (got blocked) but did well to get involved and just didn't quite see the trip out and that start cost him really. Therefore, the drop back to 7f hopefully won't be an issue and no reason why the Tapeta surface here at Newcastle (first run here) won't suit. Fit and well, Graham Lee rides and hopeful of a nice e/w run with a bit better luck in-running.

Duke Of Firenze 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
18:15, Newcastle

Cosy winner at Southwell two runs back and was just run out of things here last time over this trip, when not getting the best of runs. Dropped a pound for that last effort helps, but with a bit more luck in-running we head here with another decent chance. Graham Lee has built up a nice partnership with him too - should go close in what looks a winnable race.

Ozzy Thomas 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
17:35, Doncaster

Into a vets chase here for Ozzy and that should give him a decent chance. Now 11, but still showing a good level of form at home and ran well (3rd) when last seen at Uttoxeter back in November. Is a horse that has gone well fresh for much of his career so the 3 month break is fine, as is the trip, ground and track. The in-form Twojayslad to beat and won't be easy with a big weight, but has carried big burdens well in the past. Expected to be thereabouts.

Kloud Gate 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
17:05, Doncaster

Rose Ohara 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
16:40, Newbury

Rose O'Hara has been placed in a couple of bumpers already this season. Neither of them worked in her favour, but she showed real promise in both. This track should play to her strengths, and she should run her race again. Shouldn't be far away.

San Pedro De Senam 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
16:10, Newbury

Up in trip here should help, but has lost his way a bit recently so need to see a return to form on the track before being more confident.

Saturn n Silk 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
16:00, Doncaster

The Henderson horse - Fantastic Lady - to beat, but we'd certainly have a chance. A fair fourth last time out in a NH AW bumper at Lingfield has kept her ticking over during the bad weather spell. Has been third in all three hurdles runs prior to that last run and shown a decent level of form - has done nothing wrong in any of her Novice Hurdles, while the form has been working out well too. Has also kept on well over 2m in her races so the step up in trip should also be another plus, while the ground is perfect. Competitive race but she meets them all on good terms and should not be too far away, each-way chance.

Not Another Muddle 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
15:25, Doncaster

Lost a shoe the last day so can ignore that outing. Is starting to look well-handicapped on old form though - down another 4lbs here from last time. Better ground is fine too and this race does look a tad easier than the ones he's been running in over the last year or so. Each-way chance.

Thunder Ahead 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

Nice colt but very much first day at school today for this 3 year-old. Will improve for the experience and one to note going forward with a few runs under his belt.

Editeur Du Gite    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gary.


Fri 5th Mar 2021
15:00, Newbury

Pulled up at Chepstow the last day after making a few mistakes, but is better than that and had run well in his three previous runs this season. Down another pound here and drop in trip is fine, plus will be more at home on this good ground. Hopeful he can leave that last run behind him and looks one of my better chances on the day if his jumping holds out. Josh rides.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

Nice welcome winner for Simon and the team.


Fri 5th Mar 2021
14:35, Lingfield Park

Great record at this track and with this rider. Small fields are not ideal for him and not hugely well treated but sure to run his race. Stable is on a losing run at the moment.

Zargun 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
14:00, Lingfield Park

A nice recruit to the yard - has some fair form over in France and looking forward to getting going with him. Has settled in well, but not been out since last September so a bit of a fact-finding mission for us and the horse here today, but is 1-from-1 on the AW in France so that gives us hope the track and surface will suit.

Old Friend 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
13:15, Newbury

Ex flat horse that came to us from the Ed Walker yard - has been doing well at home and schooled okay ahead of this hurdles debut. Ground is fine and even though a tricky race to access would not be shocked if he ran okay - regardless certainly one to note for the future and Niall helps with his 5lb claim too.

West On Sunset 
Fri 5th Mar 2021
13:15, Newbury

Third run here and will get a mark after this - will be better once handicapped and might just find this a bit hot at this stage of her career.

Doonbeg Farmer 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
19:50, Chelmsford

Steps up to 1m2f today, which should suit him. Drop in grade as well here today. Got to be competitive now if he settles well and gets a bit of luck in-running. A few in it with chances but he looks an e/w shout.

Blue Beret 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
19:50, Chelmsford

Ran well enough on handicap debut without looking particularly well treated. Still learning her game but this is no stronger and should go well if progression can be maintained.

Saray Prince 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
19:50, Chelmsford

Makes handicap debut, steps up in trip and cheekpieces to help him travel. George Rooke takes off 3lbs so all helps. Just hoping for an improved run.

Mungos Quest 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
18:50, Chelmsford

Low grade maiden but hints at ability and is capable of winning a small race. Back in trip here and ran well enough on last start. Not impossible to imagine him getting involved at this level if things go smoothly for him.

Global Hope 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
17:50, Chelmsford

Trying to mix it up with Sean Leavy taking over in the saddle - but still looking for his first win on the AW from 10 runs so a bit to answer. However, is yet to run here at Chelmsford and no reason why the track won't suit. Will enjoy the drop in grade and 3lbs lower than last time too, but from draw 8 will be ridden for luck and recent showings suggest an e/w call until we see a bit of a revival on the track.

Waikiki Waves 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
16:42, Taunton

Down the field last time at Huntingdon but is certainly better than that. We've given him a break since (few months) and he seems well for that after four runs at the backend of last year. Jamie back in the saddle here too and only three other rivals that also have a bit to prove so that gives us hope. Tight little race, but not without a chance.

Motdepas 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
15:40, Taunton

Set to be our biggest-priced runner on the day, but has an each-way squeak too. Ignore the last run as that came on the AW at Kempton and didn't enjoy it - hung in the closing stages and Josh wasn't able to ride after that. Back on the turf and over hurdles helps, plus we are 4lbs lower than last time in a handicap hurdle. Still learning, but would not be totally shocked if he can better than odds suggest.

Archimedes 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
15:25, Southwell

Unfortunately got wiped out at the start last time and, therefore, lost all chance. CD winner here and in really good form at home since and if no issues at the start then a much better run expected. Dropped a pound since his last run too and no shock to see him run better than odds suggest.

Black Kalarosa 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
15:15, Ludlow

The better ground will suit again could do with a bit further in trip, but getting in races is an issue at present so takes her chance today.

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Thu 4th Mar 2021
14:50, Southwell

Won a couple of races in February and wasn't disgraced at Southwell last time off a 5lbs higher mark (3rd). Up another pound here but back in grade helps, while we've got a 7lb claimer on this time too to help with the rise in the ratings. Another bold bid expected with a good draw in 2 as well - but probably an each-way call, but should go well.

Maysong 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
14:50, Southwell

He has been in good form at home since his last start where we felt we should try a different surface and dropping him back in trip. This looks a nice option for him with the horse to beat looking to be the Julie Camacho trained runner Marvel. He has drawn well in three and Dylan Hogan who claims 3lb takes the ride.

Glen Mooar 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
14:40, Ludlow

First time in a handicap, but this is quite a stiff task & we would probably preffered a slightly further trip. In good form though so hopeful of at least a place

Deebaj 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
14:30, Taunton

If pushed, probably our best chance of getting something on the day. Yes, the Pipe horse is feared, but that one needs to bounce back from a poor run last time out. Deebaj has been kept ticking over on the flat last time at Lingfield and in a bumper on the AW there before that too. Back over hurdles here and even though we are rated 9lbs inferior to the favourite, these Selling Handicaps don't always pan out that way. Trip and ground are fine and Josh gets on well with the horse. Certainly hopeful that we can give the market leader something to think about.

Smokey Malone 
Thu 4th Mar 2021
13:10, Southwell

Seemed to get caught out for pace over 7f last time so the step back up to 1m will suit. Dylan is not able to claim in this apprentice handicap but he has the ability to overcome that. He seems well at home so should be in the shake-up again.

Brazen Point 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
17:45, Kempton Park

First run for the yard - after coming from the Tim Easterby yard. Not had the horse long so we'll find out more here today, but has shown bits and pieces of form and we head into this Classified Stakes as the top-rated. Cieren Fallon booked to ride - poor race, so not without an e/w chance on first run on any AW track too - but we'll also learn plenty today.

Shackabooah    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well and only just failed to get up.


Wed 3rd Mar 2021
17:25, Lingfield Park

Fair run at Wolves last time (5th) but lost all chance really by pulling too hard and racing freely. Drop in trip here back to 7f should hopefully see them go quicker and hoping that will make him settle. Down a pound and back into a Class 6 also help and a decent draw in 1. Hopeful we've got a decent each-way chance here - anything else a plus.

Terri Rules    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Lee's horse.


Wed 3rd Mar 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

A horse we know well and is having her third run back with us and this will also be her 50th career outing too. Had a break since running last October and into a Classified Stakes race here in what looks a very tight affair. Nice draw in 3, but often likes to be held up and is one of only two CD winners in the field so the track is a plus. Fit and well, if getting the breaks in the closing stages then not without a chance. 

Sea Of Charm    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Harry's horse


Wed 3rd Mar 2021
16:55, Lingfield Park

Looks a race that is probably between us, the Kirk, Hannon and Cox runners. Our filly sets a fair standard on what she's done to date, but does need to bounce back from a poor run at Kempton last time. Probably a bit to answer over this 7f trip too, with her best run so far coming over 6f, but we've given her a nice break since her last outing (Oct 20) and she seems a much stronger horse now. Hard to know much about the others, but should be right in the thick of things with Luke Morris riding and a good draw in 4.

Money Honey 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
16:55, Lingfield Park

Fair filly that is going the right way after two runs, but will be third outing here today and will therefore get a handicap mark after this - that will help going forward. But a nice draw in 3 and George's claim handy too.

Petesorse 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
16:55, Lingfield Park

Green on debut but showed a bit of promise for the future. Sure to have come on for that but looks a candidate for handicaps later on at this stage in what looks like a good maiden.

Master The Stars    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Ed's horse.


Wed 3rd Mar 2021
16:45, Kempton Park

He has been in good form at home and ran consistently all last campaign. We have gelded him since his last start and this should hopefully bring out some further improvement. It looks a competitive race with the horses to beat on paper looking to be Sky Defender and Lucky’s Dream. He has drawn well in two and Cieren Fallon takes the ride.

Belletti 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
16:25, Lingfield Park

Making her debut - lacks a bit of focus in some of her homework so wears cheek pieces. Her mother was a winner for us on her first start for the yard wearing blinkers too. She'll learn a lot from today and we'll also learn more about her too.

Guguss Collonges 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
15:10, Wincanton

Lightly-raced with this only being his fifth career run - stayed on okay here last time over 2m, albeit well back. But the longer trip here looks sure to suit and first time in a handicap today too will also be a plus. Should be more to come and hopeful of better, but probably just an e/w chance today.

In Rem 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
15:10, Wincanton

Counteract 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
15:10, Wincanton

Likely to perform much better on a sounder surface and could go well at big odds.

Chica Del Dia 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
14:15, Lingfield Park

Still a maiden and generally struggling in low grade affairs. This is as low as it goes and had a rough run round here last time so not a completely forlorn hope to see her involved in this with more luck. Badly needs to get her confidence but there is a small race in her.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Nice run at 11/1 from Simon's horse.


Wed 3rd Mar 2021
13:40, Lingfield Park

Persistent maiden who has some fair form here though badly interfered with in a similar event last time in a tragic accident. He must go in in the end and sure to be thereabouts if things fall right for him from a good draw (2).

Robins Dream 
Wed 3rd Mar 2021
13:30, Wincanton

Better chance on the day and looks to have just the Jane Williams horse to beat. Took a tumble last time out at Sandown but was still going well at the time and would probably have gone close. Before that last run had gone a close second at Newbury, which was a big step forward. Seems okay after that fall - hence why he's out again after just two weeks. Trip and slightly quicker ground will be fine and even though it's no penalty kick with the Williams horse and a Henderson newcomer in the race that could be anything, we are pleased with our fella and hopefully he can make amends for last time here.

Red Poppy 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
18:00, Newcastle

Red Poppy has been unsuited by Wolves on her last two starts, but they were valuable races so we thought it was worth a try. She returns to the scene of her victory and hopefully can bounce back to form.

Gleneaglet 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
17:00, Newcastle

Gleneaglet is a nice filly who will be suited by the track and distance. It doesn’t look the hardest starting point ever and she could make a nice debut.

Killaro Boy 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:40, Leicester

Last seen running in the Grand Sefton over the National Fences at Aintree in Dec 19. Been off the track since and now a 12 year-old that is into a Hunters' Chase. Useful on his day and an easy Hunter Chase winner at Warwick back in 2019 too. Gone well off a break in the past too and seems well at home - ready to run. Can go on any ground too. No spring chicken, but hoping his class will see him run well here, but goes without saying a lot depends how the Nicholls runner - Cat Tiger - runs, who is 5 years our younger and we 13lbs wrong at the weights with. Each-way claims and can hopefully qualify for Aintree with a good run here.

Carnwennan    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Charlie.


Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:00, Newcastle

Carnwennan hated Wolverhampton last time out which wasn’t a massive surprise. On his run the time before over course and distance he has a massive chance as he gets a big pull in the weights from the other horses he met that day.

Cosmelli 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:00, Newcastle

CD winner here but a tough race, with some useful staying AW horses in opposition here. Well after a month off after running a bit flat the last twice, but we are encouraged to get him back here to Newcastle, where he's got a cracking record. Recent runs here read 4-4-1-2 and based on that proven track form then could easily finish in the top half of these 8 runners if the race falls apart a bit.

Episode    WINNER! winner

Place money landed.


Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:40, Leicester

EPISODE struggles on heavy going and has missed several engagements as the going has been too extreme. Hopefully conditions will be favourable today and she can build on a decent second last time out over fences at Fakenham. I would not take much notice of her run at Lingfield in a jumpers bumper. Goes to Leicester in good heart and I think she has solid each-way claims.

Mr Chua    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ view winner this month.


Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:30, Catterick

Highly-tried last time out at Newmarket on the flat in the Cesarewitch Handicap. Had a break since and is back over hurdles here. Seems to have improved since he last ran over hurdles, with some top runs on the level at the end of last flat season and looking forward to getting him over the sticks again. Gone well fresh in the past too and his past hurdles runs were on ground softer than ideal - should have a leading chance here if his jumping holds out.

Blunder Buss 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:30, Catterick

Only third run for us but a former winning hurdler off a much higher mark (27lbs). A bit better last time (4th of 9) and down another 2lbs here and has had a wind operation since. Charlie also helps by taking off 3lbs and certainly well-handicapped on older form and won't mind the ground. But another that is returning from a small break (3 months) so no matter what will come on for this and with this being his first run back after a wind op it might just be a watching brief contest for him and we'll go from there.

Corri Lindo 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:10, Leicester

Won here at Leicester two runs ago over hurdles, but the race fell apart a bit. Couldn't add to that at Doncaster last time off a 3lb higher mark and ran too keen that day too. Same rating here as last time, but we are hoping the return to Leicester will help and reverts to fences here. Could sneak into a place, but really the first three in the market, especially the Jonjo runner - Destin D'ajonc, who was a nice winner last time out, might be hard to topple.

Kapdad 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
14:40, Leicester

Had a long time away but makes his chase debut today. I hope he can give a good account of himself, but overall I think best watched on this occasion.

Designer Destiny    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Tim's horse.


Tue 2nd Mar 2021
13:30, Catterick

Nice mare that came to us from the Harry Whittington yard and is having her first run for us today. Not been on the track since Dec 19 though as had some issues but lightly-raced and has shown a fair level of form in the past. May just need the run after the break, but been going well at home and certainly not without a small e/w chance. Ground and trip are fine, but really the top two in the market should be fighting this one out, while our mare will also be better once getting a handicap mark.

Secret Acquisition 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
16:50, Wolverhampton

Returns after an absence, albeit she was ready to run last year and had an issue just when racing resumed so absence not as dramatic as it first looks. Wears a tongue tie as she sometimes gets her tongue over the bit at home and this stops that, making life easier for her jockey. Will relish the extra distance she gets here and is likely to want further in due course.

Flaminger 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
14:40, Plumpton

Pulled up last time at Newbury, but if he improves on this ground, which we hope he will, should have every chance in a race that is cutting up with a few non-runners already. Is also a past course winner here - Josh rides.

Mon 1st Mar 2021
13:30, Plumpton

A nice horse, but no penalty kick here. Former nice flat horse but has run into a few over hurdles and still learning his new trade. Ran a close second here two runs back too so the track is fine. Competitive little race which hopefully he can win and get off the mark over the sticks.

Vision Clear 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
13:30, Plumpton

Second runner in this race for us. The drying ground will probably suit but a track at which he has not been seen at his best so far - hopefully he can put that right today and run a better race.

Lavorante 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
17:10, Fontwell Park

Hard races to call with a lot of unexposed sorts in the race. The Nicholls and Gordon runners are feared, but we are happy with our horse too, who ran well at Kempton in an AW bumper last time. Ran on well over 2m that day (3rd) so the extra trip here is a big plus and should also improve for the switch to the turf.

Outisaid 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
16:50, Hereford

Five career runs and seems to be heading the right way after an improved third at Chepstow last time out. Up in trip a bit here will be fine and the ground is okay too. Same mark too, but Ben takes off a handy 5lbs this time so that will be a big help. The Daly horse is probably the one to beat, but we'd certainly have claims too - each-way.

Let Me Entertain U 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
16:10, Fontwell Park

Bumper winner having his first run in a handicap. Step up in trip will certainly help him, but his looks a strong contest for the grade and the handicapper hasn't exactly been kind on him for what he's achieved so far. Ground should be fine for him too but probably each-way chances.

Saghir 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
15:40, Fontwell Park

Second runner in the race for us and certainly our better chance. Fair flat performer that is having his first run for us and first over hurdles but a nice horse that should hopefully have a future in time. We'll find out more here but in a race that lacks depth outside the top three in the betting, we could sneak into a place if one of the main players gets run out of things.

Flaggan

Ran third behind the useful Sky Pirate last time at Warwick so this looks an easier option here down two grades. 3lbs lower too, but in this lower class more racing weight to carry. But certainly looks a winnable race and last two runs - in better races (3rd both times) would give him a big chance. 

High Up In The Air    WINNER! winner

Another top win for this improving chaser.


Sun 28th Feb 2021
14:40, Fontwell Park

In great form - winning his last four. Up another 6lbs in the ratings so certainly no penalty kick here, especially with the Nicholls horse a fair sort. Just hoping the ground is against the Nicholls horse a bit more than us, but likely to be quite dead underfoot conditions and it's will probably be more of a case of who goes on it best, rather than who is the better horse. But we are very happy with our 7 year-old and he's done nothing wrong recently, so hopefully he can carry on the winning run on what looks his hardest task so far though.

Electron Bleu 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
14:20, Hereford

A bit better last time out, when third at Chepstow but well back that day so more needed still. Helps being 3lbs lower and slightly better ground here will help. We are also putting the tongue-tie on today to see if that helps - would like to see a bit more improvement on the track first, but is starting to look well-handicapped on older hurdles form so that would give us an e/w squeak.

Cherokee Bill 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
14:10, Fontwell Park

Still to win a race from 21 starts, but a couple of fair runs this season and this is only his fourth run for us (was formerly with Noel Meade). We've given the horse a wind op since his last run to help with his breathing and the step up to 2m5f here will help too. 3lbs lower here too so certainly not without a chance, but being first run back from the wind op would like to see how he gets on in a race first.

West Lake 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
14:10, Fontwell Park

First run for us - former winning Pointer that has settled in well. Goes withouth saying no spring chicken at 11, but gets in here with a light weight (10-3) and that will help. The Venetia Williams runner the one that sets the standard, but would not be too surprised to see us run okay here.

Headley George 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:30, Chelmsford

Looks to have a great chance here so long as the races are not coming too quickly for him. Been a backward horse and rated accordingly but should progress this Spring and has run well round here. Should be thereabouts with top claimer booked.

Recuerdame 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

Had a good Winter and appeared to improve again here last time for the step up in trip. 5lb rise makes things tougher again but is becoming an established handicapper at this level and no reason not to expect another bold effort.

Kentucky Kingdom    WINNER! winner

Easy win for this James Evans runner.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

In good form and ran well last week in a higher grade. Has to be settled and waited with so Ellie Mackenzie can get a clear run and if things drop right should be thereabouts.

Engrave 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

Has been consistent all Winter - returns to Chelmsford today, which is a plus as her two wins are over CD. Draw 13 not great but if she can get a handy position she should have an e/w chance in this lower grade, which is a first in this class.

Olivers Pursuit 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

Desert Marathon 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

Was disappointing at Lingfield last time but we think there were genuine excuses. This track should suit her much better and doesn't look a race with much depth, although the draw (10) hasn't been too kind.

Silver Bubble    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gay's horse.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

Only third career run but took a step forward last time out at Lingfield, when a fair fourth. Still learning and we feel the step up to 1m will suit as was a bit slowly away last time. No reason why Chelmsford won't suit and Rhiain's claim helps. A few ahead of us in the market set a slightly better standard though, but certainly one to look for once handicapped.

Jabula 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

First day at school for this filly - she will improve for the experience and is likely to need further as the season develops.

Lady Quickstep 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
19:00, Chelmsford

Ran on well over 5f at Wolves last time out so the step back up to 6f will help. Down a pound for that and a top draw here in 1. Hopefully she can get a nice position from that berth and looks to have a fair e/w chance.

Professor Galant 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
17:30, Chelmsford

Yet to win a race but only had 9 career runs and been close a few time. Notably last time out at Southwell when a close fourth in a bunch finish. Different surface here but should be fine - has run well at Wolverhampton and Lingfield in the past too. Visor on today too for the first time as probably does need to find some improvement and we are hoping it can come from that. The Watson horse sets the standard.

Northern Beau 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
15:50, Newcastle

Likeable mare that likes to run from the front. But not won now since Dec 19, so our second runner in this race with a bit to prove too. Back over hurdles is fine and dropping in the ratings helps - is 3lbs lower than last win (fences). Gets in with a low weight too, like our other runner, but looks a hot little race so a place might be the best we can hope for.

Ask Himself 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
15:50, Newcastle

Did well around this last year but lost his way a bit since and has had a wind op at the end of last season. Returns from almost 4 months off and first run back from that operation so just be happy with a solid run and build from that. On a plus, does have a light weight for his return!

Ivaquestion 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
15:43, Lingfield Park

Making up into a staying handicapper and would come on for last run after a short break. Reappears a bit quickly and slightly higher grade here but has plenty of scope and big run expected if all goes well for him.

Sandaroc 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:45, Newcastle

Sandaroc ran well to be 2nd on her hurdling debut after a wind operation. She should have improved for that run and there is scope for further progress. This doesn’t look a strong race so she'll hopefully have a chance here.

Robin Des Theatre    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Scu.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:45, Newcastle

Nice mare that should have a decent chance here. Good form in two bumpers and schooled well ahead of this hurdles debut. Starting off in a mares' only race too and we've done well with our runners up at Newcastle in the past. Probably the Snowden and McCain horses to fear, but looking forward to seeing her run and should have a big chance.

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:25, Kempton Park

Nice debut run over hurdles at Ascot last time, but we are taking on the horse that beat us there again - Tritonic. Different ground - quicker today - and sharper track, but that might still play to the strengths of the King horse. Fit and well though and looking forward to trying again, but probably just an e/w chance.

Smiths Cross 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:10, Newcastle

Much better last time out - in the week on Tuesday, when a fine third at Wetherby. Quick turnaround here, but has come out of that race well but reverts back to chasing (hurdles last time) here. Visor on to keep his mind on the jumping as fallen the last twice over fences. Certainly well-handicapped though on older form, so if his jumping holds out can't be ruled out of this tight little race.

Ornate 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:05, Lingfield Park

Been a busy boy of late but takes his racing well - hot contest here and a bit to find on these terms as we are rated 10lbs off the likes of Moss Gill in the race. But the horse is well and we've a nice draw in 2, plus we are at least match-fit, with a few of the main players returning from breaks. In good shape after last Southwell run too - tightened him up and decent form on the track. Probably likely to find a few too good in the closing stages, but the horse is well and shouldn't be far away and certainly deserves his place in the race.

GA Law 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
13:50, Kempton Park

Ga Law has won three of his four chase starts this season. He won the Grade 2 Rising Stars at Wincanton in November, and carries a 5lbs penalty here for that success. He was subsequently 3rd in a Grade 1 at Sandown over 2m. Back up to 2m4 on better ground, he should run very well here.  However, giving away a penalty won't be easy, and he's got to keep improving, but he looks to be at home.....

Enough Already    WINNER! winner

Nice 14/1 winner for Lee.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

Nice return run at Kempton last time out - only beaten 1 3/4 lengths. Kept on well that day so we feel the step up in trip here to 1m2f will help and has come out of that last race well. With a small bit of improvement - which we hope will come over this trip - should have a nice e/w chance, with the Ryan Moore-ridden Convertible looking the one to beat.

Toro Dorado    WINNER! winner

Only just missed out - one to note next time.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

He ran well on his first start this year and nearly always puts in a solid performance. This looks a nice spot for him with the Hugo Palmer and Archie Watson trained runners looking the danger horses on paper. He has drawn well in four and Ben Curtis takes the ride.

Sherpa Trail

Shackabooah 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
20:15, Wolverhampton

Second runner for us in the race and closely-matched with Visibility. Was an unlucky second here two runs ago and is only 2lbs higher here. Fair run (4th) since at Kempton, but those last two runs have been over 7f so the step up in trip here is the big question mark. But runs as if he'll get the extra trip - running on well the last twice - and we feel it should bring out more improvement at a track we know he's run well at in the past. Draw 12 not ideal, but expected to be held up, so will need some breaks from there, but if they come could go well.

Visibility    WINNER! winner

Did it well for Scott.


Fri 26th Feb 2021
20:15, Wolverhampton

Course winner here in January and despite being 4lbs higher this time we are offsetting that with Jonathan's 5lb claim. A nice draw in 4 too as likes to get on with things and stays a bit further than this so that stamina will be a plus. Very open race for the grade, but has been running well all year and if able to get a good break would not be without a chance. Looks a nice e/w price though.

Maketh Believeth 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

First time on the track here today - like a lot of ours will improve for the experience, but is a nice colt that will do well in time.

Quarry Beach 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
17:15, Wolverhampton

Trappy little 3-runner race and all of us look to have a say. Ratings and the weights in this Selling Stakes will favour the Herrington runner - Steel River - but the horse is an 11 year-old now, so hoping our younger legs have an edge. Also taking on an inform Tony Carroll horse that's won 3 of it's last 4. Our horse ran very well too recently though when a close third over this CD and on that running she'd be in the mix. Hollie said she hung a bit in the closing stages last time but Luke will be aware of this. Yet to win a race though from 24 runs, so that does tell it's own story, and would probably need to improve a little, but having said that is certainly not out of this with only two rivals!

Outrage    WINNER! winner

Top call from Daniel.


Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:35, Lingfield Park

A bit of a rematch following his recent course and distance victory - Pop Dancer and Saaheq were a neck and a half a length behind that day and Saaheq has gone onto win impressively since. So, likely to be a tight contest!

Capla Spirit 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:35, Lingfield Park

Looks a tough little sprint on paper and we've a bit of ground to make up with Saaheq, who beat us 3 3/4 lengths here last time. Fit and well though and acts well here at the track - should not be far away, but would need a career-best to take this against some in-form rivals.

Avantgardist 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:23, Warwick

Fourth last time out at Doncaster - albeit beaten a fair way, but the winner has since won again since so that gives us some encouragement. Is also dropped a few pounds and into an easier grade so this should help. Slightly longer trip to deal with here, but should be fine and is returning to a course he's won at in the past too. Recent winners Eaton Miller and Uisce Ur are feared with the CD winner from the Woollacott yard, but we could be the e/w value in the race.

The Warrior    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Lee's horse.


Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Won here last time out over 1m2f and despite being up 4lbs for that Connor's 3lb claim takes most of that off. Dropping back to 1m here is fine and still well-handicapped on old form. The only issue, as I've said many times with this horse, is that he's got the ability at this level and a bit higher, but isn't always the most reliable. He's come out of that last race well though and did win back-to-back races around this time last year so that gives us encouragement he can go in again.

Mungos Quest 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Still a maiden and possibly better suited back to a mile. Has hinted there is a race in him and quite well handicapped. Good claimer takes off another 7lbs so all in place for a big run but needs to show a bit more before you can make a real case for him.

Valletta Sunset 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Valetta Sunset has been disappointing but we have been trying something different with him and he has run well here in the past. Really, just hoping for a better run in a weak race.

Benatar 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
15:53, Warwick

Pulled up last time at Sandown, but different tactics today and we feel that if they work out and if he runs to the level of his Cheltenham third (2 runs ago) then should have a much better chance. Competitive race but has been helped by being dropped 4lbs in the handicap too.

Maazel 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Nice run to be fourth behind another of ours - The Warrior - last time here over 1m2f. Has come out of that race well and the drop back to 1m will be okay. Well drawn in 3 and we are the only course winner in the field so hoping that gives us an edge, but the in-form Hunters Edge might be hard to topple.

Chica Del Dia 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Low grade maiden but has shown a bit more in recent starts at a low level and seems very well in herself. Good draw and top rider booked so could easily go well at a big price.

Zankala 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
14:55, Lingfield Park

She has been in good form at home since her last run and we have added blinkers this time to help sharpen her up. This looks a nice option for her and we hope she will run a nice race. She hasn’t drawn well in twelve and Callum Shepherd takes the ride.

Early Morning Rain    WINNER! winner

Top run from Jamie's horse.


Fri 26th Feb 2021
14:35, Exeter

Early Morning Rain has been placed in all three starts over fences, and has shown she is capable of winning over fences but probably isn't quite up to this standard. However, it would be great if she could be placed again here and therefore pick up some all important 'black type' for her future career as a broodmare.

Speedy Choice 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
14:10, Warwick

Took a bit of a step forward last time here when 8th of 18, but will gain more experience here and be one step nearer to getting a handicap mark. Will be more competitive once that happens.

Exodela 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
14:00, Exeter

Exod'ela won off a mark of 119 this time last season, and is now back down to a mark of 120 after some creditable efforts earlier this season. He's a tricky ride, so blinkers should help here and the trip and track should play to his strengths, whilst he is down in class too. Plenty of positives and not a bad bet at around 9-1.

Archimedes 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
20:30, Southwell

Has become a shade frustrating - now 30 runs since last win (2019). Into a Classified Stakes race here, so a poor level and is one of only a few CD winners in the field so know the surface is fine. Had excuses last time as played up a bit beforehand, but still showed good speed that day at Newcastle. The return to the fibresand a plus. Hard to be too confident and the recent winner - Tyger Bay - looks the one to beat, but it's a bad race and we know he acts at the track so can't rule out.

Bond Angel 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
19:30, Southwell

Ran well for most of the way last time out here over this trip - just got run out of things in the closing stages to finish fourth. Same mark here but drop in grade helps. Likes to get on with things from the front, so that will be the play again here and hopefully in this slightly easier company can hang on for longer this time. Place claims.

False Id 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
19:30, Southwell

Nice draw in 1 helps, but will need to be better away than in recent runs - slowly away the last three times and that's cost him. But has run on well each time and only 3lbs higher than when winning here in January (beat Maykir) so on that run would have a chance, but, as I  say, would need a better beginning to the race.

De Bruyne Horse 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
18:00, Southwell

Gutsy win last time out here last week - battled on really well to get back up on the line and we feel the horse had a bit more in the tank. Up 5lbs for that so more on his plate here, but another bold bid from the front on the cards in a tight affair. Might have some company up the front with the likes of Michele Strogoff, but we've a fair draw in 6 and we come into the race as the only last time out winner - that gives us confidence. Decent e/w claims.

Holiday Magic    WINNER! winner

Galloped them into the ground for win number 10!


Thu 25th Feb 2021
18:00, Southwell

Back from a short break. Run well fresh too. Drop in grade here today too and should be thereabouts coming off a strong pace. Therefore, each-way chance in a competitive race for the grade.

Calarules 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
16:15, Sedgefield

Another of ours that should have a big chance today. Ran well to be a close second at Doncaster last time out and might have won had he not made a mistake of the last and also ran a bit keen that day. But it was still a top effort and despite being raised 3lbs for that, we feel the longer trip will suit. Might have preferred slightly better ground so we hope it dries out a bit, but the horse is well and should go well.

Bolt N Brown 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
15:05, Huntingdon

Lost a shoe when last seen at Fakenham over hurdles so can ignore that run. Down 4lbs for that here and has since run okay on the AW at Chelmsford. Returning to Huntingdon as he ran a fair second here last November so we know the track suits. Doesn't look a great race and even though the Moore runner is probably the one to beat, we'd have an each-way chance, but worth noting only 7 runners (2 e/w places).

Quiana 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
15:05, Huntingdon

Good run recently on the AWT at Kempton when a close second. Has come out of that race well and lightly-raced over hurdles (3 runs) so should have more to offer. Hopefully if he transfers that to the grass today, should have every chance on only his fourth run over hurdles and first time into a handicap over the sticks.

Timely Gift 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
14:42, Sedgefield

Second on his return run at Uttoxeter last time out and despite being beaten 22 lengths we were still pleased with that effort as it came off a break and after a wind op. Dropped 2lbs for that too and longer trip is okay as has plenty of stamina. With the expected improvement should make a bold bid. Each-way.

Silver In Disguise    WINNER! winner

Top win for this improving Tim Vaughan runner.


Thu 25th Feb 2021
14:27, Chepstow

Very easy winner last time out at Catterick and if in the same mood should go well again. Up 15lbs in the weights though from that success and rise in grade, so no easy task, but has come out of that last race well and with just four career runs we feel he's still improving. Soft ground and the slightly longer trip should be fine.

Ar Mest 
Thu 25th Feb 2021
13:30, Huntingdon

Is in good form after been kept fit running in NH Flat races when the weather was bad and should have every chance. Would just be slightly concerned about the Fergal O'Brien horse - Timetochill - but nice to get him back jumping and can go well.

Trixie Waterbury 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
19:45, Kempton Park

In cracking form at the moment - has won two of her last three, including here last time. Up another 5lbs here so continues to need more, but we still think she's improving and it's hard to fault her at the moment. Luke rides again and if coping with the slight rise in grade and penalty would have solid e/w claims again - anything else a plus.

Note Bleu 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
19:15, Kempton Park

C&D winner last time - up 4lb for that but negated by the jockey's claim which should  see him with every chance, although a slightly more competitive race this time and taking on three other good recent winners too.

Blow Your Horn  
Wed 24th Feb 2021
19:15, Kempton Park

Blow Your Horn has been unlucky over shorter at Wolverhampton on his last two starts, the step up in trip will definitely be in his favour but once again he is drawn wide and will need some luck in-running

Honours    WINNER! winner

Ran well at 33/1 to be 2nd.


Wed 24th Feb 2021
18:45, Kempton Park

Third run here today so will get a handicap mark after this and that will help. But is going the right way after a decent fifth here last time when stepped up to this trip. Still learning and Luke a plus in the saddle. Seems to revolve around the first three in the betting but little depth after that, so if one of the main trio has an off day then not without a small chance of hitting the frame.

Princes des Sables 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

Makes her debut for us here but has some fair form to her name although not in recent runs. Looks well handicapped and top claiming rider takes off another 7lbs so could get involved at a big price if anywhere near back to her best.

Minella Royale 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
16:15, Ludlow

Minella Royale ran with credit on his first outing for us at Warwick when finishing fifth, it was a competitive race and he hadn’t run for two years. He won a point to point before being bought by Trevor Hemmings for £100k he went to Paul Nicholls who struggled with lameness issues with him. He returned to Gleadhill Stud and after investigation he was found to have bone chips in his knees, they were removed and he was given time to recover. He was sent to me last autumn before Mr Hemmings decided to have his dispersal sale, I had had no issues with him until that point so I bought him back. He is a very straightforward horse, he’s not flash in his work or schooling but he does everything he’s asked to do and he’s kind, honest and willing. He shapes like a proper stayer at home and as the cliche goes whatever he does over hurdles is a bonus because he’ll make a nice chaser.

Connard    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but a much improved run for Tim's horse.


Wed 24th Feb 2021
16:15, Ludlow

Didn't run too badly last time at Chepstow - just got tired in the last half a mile, which was to be expected after almost a year off. That was also only first run for us after coming over from Ireland so we found out a bit. Likely to be better though once into handicaps, but the ground is fine and Charlie helps by taking off 5lbs. Be happy with an improved run and build from that, but the Twiston-Davies runner looks the obvious call.

Theligny 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
16:05, Doncaster

Back over hurdles here after running over fences for the last few years. Returns on a fair mark and will be fine on the ground too, plus been freshened up with around 3 months off. Does have top-weight of 12st to contend with here though so that might prove a big ask, but the horse is well and the top-rated in the field so that gives us hope of an e/w run.

Cool Spirit 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
15:15, Southwell

Not had the horse long and had first run for us a few weeks ago here when down the field. Down in grade here and dropped 3lbs so should find this a bit easier after running well for much of the way last time. Hopeful that effort has brought him on after 5 months off and the ease in company will help too. Does need to find a bit of form, but certainly very well handicapped off 57 on old form - has been as high as 85 in the past.

Moveonup 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
15:15, Southwell

Won here back in October, but has been poor since so plenty to answer today. Down another 2lbs helps though and certainly not without a small squeak if the return to 6f and Southwell do the trick - has won here over this CD off a 2lb higher mark. Horses are going well and this horse has had a month off to get over a busy time during Nov, Dec and Jan. But overall a bit to answer at the moment so probably best-watched until we see a return to form on the track.

Bealach    WINNER! winner

Step up in trip did the trick.


Wed 24th Feb 2021
14:40, Southwell

Only third run for the stable, but has run 12 times overall. Not shown much for us so far, but hopefully the step up in distance here to 1m6f will bring out some improvement, although has a bad draw (10), but should hopefully have enough time over this distance to overcome that.

Bells Of Peterboro 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
14:30, Ludlow

Nice winner at Fakenham last time out and the 4lb rise for that has been offset with Charlie Price's 5lb claim - we are actually a pound lower! Loves heavy ground and this slightly longer trip should be fine. Should go well if running to the same level as last time and looks one of our best chances on the day.

Evas Oskar 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
14:20, Doncaster

Nice horse that won a decent Class Two Handicap Hurdle back in Dec 19, but has since been switched to fences. Fit and well after a solid run at Ffos Las (4th) last time out and his best hurdles form would give him a big say if translating that to the bigger obstacles. Made a few mistakes that last day, which cost him in the end, but down 3lbs from that here helps. Will need to brush up his jumping but has schooled well since his last run and with just 3 runs over fences is still learning. If his jumping holds out, more than capable of going well in a race like this. 

Gleno    WINNER! winner

Much better run from Gary's horse.


Wed 24th Feb 2021
14:20, Doncaster

Won twice at the end of last year but jumping fell apart last time at Wincanton. Has had a month off and been schooling at home since. Hopefully his jumping will improve here. If so, should have every chance of just a 3lb higher mark than when winning by 12 lengths at Fakenham two runs back.

Ornate 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
14:05, Southwell

Nice prize up for grabs here and we should have a leading chance. Tough old sprinter that's been around the block a few times - this will be his 68th career run. Won again last time out here in a tight finish and a 3lb rise for that looks fair enough. Well after that race and has a top recent record here on the Fibresand that reads 2-3-1-1-2-1 and dates back to Dec 18.

Smokey Malone 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
12:30, Southwell

Lived up to the promise he showed when second on his first try at Southwell to win here last time out. He runs with a 6lb penalty here, but went up 7lbs in the ratings on Tuesday. He is tough and seems to be improving - we hope he can follow-up that win here in a weak-looking race. Dylan Hogan, who rode last time, remains in the saddle.

Little Gem

Little Gem ran encouragingly last time out at Kempton and her pedigree gives us hope that she will handle the surface at Southwell step up to seven furlongs should suit too.

Duke Of Firenze 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
19:40, Newcastle

Great to see the old boy win again last time out at Southwell - came with a well-timed late run to get up on the line. Up 4lbs for that but still very well handicapped on older form, but is 12 now! Remains in great form at home since that win and Graham Lee, who rode last time and is yet to finish out of the top three (3 runs) on him, is in the saddle again. Bit more on his plate in this higher grade, but looks the e/w value in the race.

Oriental Cross 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
15:20, Wetherby

Nice return run at Taunton last month when a fine fourth of 10 in a mares' only chase. Back against the boys here but has come out of that race well and also dropped a further pound helps. Trip and ground are fine and hoping she'll have more to come over fences, with this only being her fourth run over the bigger obstacles. Any more rain is fine too and would have an e/w chance.

Diamond Brig 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
15:20, Wetherby

Pulled up last time at Chepstow in deep ground after running too keen - but won well the time before at Uttoxeter. Is certainly better than that last showing but does need to be more consistent on the track - we'll be dropping him in today to finish. Well at home since, hence why he's running just 2 weeks after that last run and the track here will be more to his liking. Bit to prove after last time, but small e/w chance if running to the level of two runs ago and settling better.

Jean Genie    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third - one to watch next time.


Tue 23rd Feb 2021
15:05, Taunton

Yet to win a race from 11 starts but not sure how - gone close a few times and hopefully after a recent wind op can kick on now. Trip and ground fine and returns with Charlie Price riding and taking 5lbs off too. Gone well off a break in the past too so the 3 month break is fine and another of ours today with a fair e/w chance.

Smiths Cross    WINNER! winner

Much better run from Scu's horse.


Tue 23rd Feb 2021
14:45, Wetherby

Has fallen the last twice - was still going well two runs ago when taking a tumble at Newcastle and then came down at the last here last time when beaten at the time. Both those races came over 3m, but we are dropping back in trip here to 2m and we feel on this ground that will help - he's got enough speed to cope with that. 2lbs lower this time too and the blinkers are on to help him concentrate more on his jumping mainly. Seems well after around 6 weeks off to get over that last race and feel he's got a fair chance here in a very open race, but probably an e/w play.

Isle Of Aron 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
13:45, Wetherby

Has run well in two NH Flat races to date, but we've taken our time with him as last seen back in September. Schooled well ahead of this first run over hurdles and looking forward to seeing him jumping now. But likely to find the four at the head of the market having the experience edge over him on this occasion, should be a horse to note once getting a handicap mark too.

Lady In Hiding 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
13:00, Taunton

Lady In Hiding had decent bumper form in 2019 before having a nightmare winter the following season due to lung infections, we just couldn’t keep her healthy for any length of time so she didn’t make it back onto a racecourse until earlier this year. After such a long lay off it was a perfectly respectable run on very heavy ground at Newbury, she looked as if she could be involved turning into the home straight before weakening from two out. Daryl looked after her and she’s improved plenty for that outing. It was her first hurdle race and I was pleased with her jumping as she can be quite deliberate at home and she’s not over big.

Invicta Lake 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
12:30, Taunton

Has been particulary hard to place this season but retains his enthusiasm, although nowhere near the force of old. Though this track might not be completley ideal, he stands a chance of running into a place off a feather weight, with only a few of these looking as if they are running to their marks.

Roca Magica 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
18:40, Wolverhampton

She had been on the go for over a year before her last start so we decided to give her a break and this will be her first run back. She has been in good form at home and this looks a good place to start her off. It is a competitive race with, we feel, the Amy Murphy trained runner the horse to beat - Nirodha. Our horse is drawn well in four though and Rab Havlin takes the ride.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
16:20, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and has a similar make-up to our other entry with a bit to prove at the moment. Showed promise back in 2018, but not progressed as we'd like so far. But is lightly raced still and 3lbs lower than last seen at Taunton. Also feel the drop back in trip will help here after pulling too hard over 2m3f last time and getting tired. They should hopefully go a fair bit quicker here and that will help. Small e/w chance.

Numero Uno 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
16:20, Southwell

Poor runs the last twice at Hereford and Taunton so a fair bit to prove at the moment. Dropped 6lbs in the ratings though helps. We've given him a break too and seems well at home - would have a chance on the form on his third at Musselburgh last Feb, but really we need to see this on the track first to be more confident.

Catfish Row 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
15:50, Southwell

Been ticking over in a few NH Flat run on the AW at Newcastle and Lingfield - but only second run over hurdles here and will be much more competitive once getting a handicap mark. The Evan Williams runner - Can You Call - looks the obvious call.

Animal 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
14:20, Southwell

Ran very well at Wincanton last time out - staying on strongly. A couple of nice sorts in here again but could run into a place again and is starting to settle better now in his races.

Midnight Folie 
Mon 22nd Feb 2021
13:15, Southwell

Last seen in a Point to Point, but back in Dec 19. Had some issues since hence the time off but she is ready to run again. Showed a good level of form back in 2019 under rules too, but returns on a 3lbs higher rating. With the time off is expected to improve for this though, but nice to get her back on the track and be happy with a nice return run and go from there.

Shattered Glass    WINNER! winner

Another step forward for Scu's horse - one to note next time.


Sun 21st Feb 2021
16:25, Market Rasen

Pleasing return to the track at Catterick last time out, when 5th of 12. That came off a break and also a wind op, so can be expected to improve for it too. We've also been dropped 5lbs and get in here with just 10st 6lbs which will help in the ground. Also feel this step up in trip will be what he wants and that should hopefully bring out some more improvement. Open race, but no reason why he shouldn't go well - each-way chance, but being supported and on what he's achieved so far doesn't look great value.

Pleney 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
16:17, Uttoxeter

Should have a decent chance if running to the level of last time, when second at Ffos Las. The winner that day looks ahead of the handicapper so it probably wasn't a bad effort, despite being 12 lengths back. Heavy ground is fine and the visor that he wore for the first time that day seemed to help - it's on again here. The Bowen horse looks the one to beat, but we should be thereabouts with an e/w chance.

The Dawn Man 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
16:17, Uttoxeter

Ran okay back in December at Hexham (4th of 14) but got tired at Exeter last time on that more testing track after running well for much of the way. Down 3lbs helps but we are still 4lbs higher than last career win and only win under rules. Small e/w chance, in what doesn't look a deep race, but overall does need to some a bit more consistency on the track. 

Tippingituptonancy 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
15:42, Uttoxeter

Fifty Ball    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w call from Gary.


Sun 21st Feb 2021
15:35, Newbury

A race that's been kind to us in the past - we've won it three times and one more win would the record of 4 wins of Ryan Price in the 60's, but it's a race the Henderson and Twiston-Davies yards have done well in over the years too. Anyway, we've been delighted with Fifty Ball since he came over from France - winning his last two and is improving all the time. Hiked up 11lbs for the last win and goes without saying a much tougher race, but we still get in here with a light weight (10-5lbs) due to the rise in grade. My three previous winners all were 10-9 or less and unless you've got a Champion Hurdle horse in this race, then I feel this sort of weight is best for this race. The horse is well too and been freshened up with a few months off - should go well, with a live E/W chance, while any further rain would help his chance.

Pebbly New Moon 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
15:07, Uttoxeter

Pebbly ran well first time out at Hereford when finishing third, it was his first outing for eighteen months and only his second ever race so there’s going to be a lot of improvement in him. Pebbly is a big horse who is going to be a cracking staying chaser once he’s gained some racing experience, I’ve given him plenty of time to recover from that race and the conditions and trip today should be perfect for him. Harry rides to take off 5lbs too, so that helps - should have every chance and looking forward to seeing him run.
Kalahari Queen 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
13:30, Market Rasen

Kalahari Queen was a useful novice chaser and hurdler - she was 2nd in a Grade 2 as a novice - but has largely struggled in open company. She was a good 2nd off this mark on her last start over hurdles, but bled last time out over fences. We've given her time to recover from that, and back on some "nicer" ground (not a bog) she has the ability to figure here if things go right for her.

Rosy World 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
13:30, Market Rasen

Been off the track a while and not been given a huge amount of help from the handicapper. She is working well at home though and probably better over this sort of trip than 3m. Entitled to need the run, but could still easily run into a place.

Rocco Du Berlais 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
13:15, Newbury

Tough race and best watched here until we get some more experience into the horse, plus is also returning from a long time off and a wind op.

Bringthehousedown 
Sun 21st Feb 2021
12:50, Uttoxeter

Bringthehousedown has only had one run since joining me because he’s a nightmare to train, he’s got big very flat feet and he’s constantly bruising his soles, pulling off shoes or banging his joints so I rarely get a clear run with him and he spends a lot of time in the equine pool. My farrier Ben spends more time with Joe than he does with his wife and dreads Stefan (my head lad) coming back from the downs without a front shoe on, a regular occurrence unfortunately. He ran okay on his hurdling debut, after bulldozing his way through the first couple of hurdles he got the hang of things, then his jumping was fine until he got to the last flight which he met all wrong at a time he was tiring after being off the track for so long. It’s been another 177 days since then and his owners have the patience of saints so I hope he can repay their faith at some stage. He’s bound to improve for this outing on this ground after such a layoff but I’m just happy to get him back on the track.

Archimedes 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
19:00, Newcastle

Second runner in the race for us and not without a chance - ran below par last time out but has come out of that race well and fine at home since. Acts well at the track and on the surface - 4lbs to find at the weights with Wicklow Warrior, but has been taking his racing well of late and would certainly have place claims in a race that's probably not worth getting too involved in.

Leo Minor 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
19:00, Newcastle

Poor race so that gives us a chance, but a bit to find on these terms with some of these, notably Wicklow Warrior. But these races don't always pan out as the weights suggest. Fit and well, a nice draw in 4 and the experienced Graham Lee takes over in the saddle. We are also trying the hood for the first time to see if that helps - probably needs a bit more, but would have small place claims.

Jefferson Davis 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
17:08, Wincanton

Lost his way a bit in recent runs - pulled up the last twice. Down 4lbs here from last time and Charlie on to claim 5lbs helps, especially in the ground. But need to see more on the track really and is a bit better on quicker ground. Be happy with a solid run back and hopefully give us something to build on.

Jersey Lady 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
16:45, Ascot

Lady won nicely first time out at Ludlow before finishing third in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham, that was in similar conditions to today so ground shouldn’t be a problem. After her last run at Huntingdon where she was too keen she was found to be in season, I can’t categorically claim that’s why she was disappointing but Amy said she was much buzzier that day in the preliminaries so I’m hoping it was the case. Jersey Lady is a straightforward mare to deal with at home, she’s good to ride but can be keen when she’s fresh. If putting that last run behind her then certainly would have a decent chance on her Listed third at Cheltenham.
Zhiguli 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
16:10, Ascot

Second runner in this race for us - impressed when upped in trip last time to win at Plumpton and despite an 8lb rise did it nicely last time. Has progressed at home since too and Niall gets on well with him - able to claim 5lbs here. If pushed I feel we've got several leading chances today, but he could be our best chance on the afternoon.

Ruby Yeats 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
16:10, Ascot

Nice winner at Exeter last time out - up 4lbs for that and has come out of that race well. Up around half a mile in trip here though and looks a much better race. But is well at home and certainly not without an each-way squeak.

Republican 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
16:10, Ascot

Republican has run nicely in two races this season when beginning his chasing career, his jumping was exceptionally good on both occasions. He finished second last time out at Fontwell when trying to concede two stone to the winner, who has gone on to win and be placed since, but he came back from that race pretty tired and we’ve given him a good long break to recover fully. Republican is a horse with a bright future over fences but I didn’t want to lose his novice certificate at this stage of the season so he is reverting to hurdles for this spring and I don’t intend to over race him with a view to the future. Republican loves his jumping and he’s been schooling well back over hurdles, he’s very fresh and well at home so I’m glad he’s back to his best. Open race, but we'd have place claims.
Hogans Height 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
15:58, Wincanton

Hogan's Height won the Grand Sefton over the Grand National fences last season, and his target this time around is the Grand National itself.  He will head to the Cheltenham Festival after this for a tilt at the Glenfarclas Cross Country, and then onto the National. This will tee him up nicely for those spring targets, but having won two novice hurdles, he doesn’t look badly treated over hurdles, so although this is a 'warm up', he could go well enough here.

Capla Spirit 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
15:46, Lingfield Park

Gutsy sprinter at this level - won again last time out here in a bunch finish and only up 2lbs for that. But up into a Class 4 here so more on his plate and we don't have as good a draw as last time (8). Has come out of that race well though, but in this harder race would need a career-best here - but in the form he's in then not without a chance of finding a bit more. Each-way, but the unexposed Appleby horse looks the obvious one though. 

Goshen    WINNER! winner

Superb - Goshen is back, next stop the Champion Hurdle.


Sat 20th Feb 2021
15:18, Wincanton

Bit to prove at the moment after some average showings on the flat and ran way too free last time in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham. Is certainly better than that run and we take on the winner of that race - Song For Someone - again here. Had a few months off since that last run and seems well at home - ready to run again. Hopefully he can answer his critics today and the real Goshen will show up. Jamie rides. 

Nassalam 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
15:14, Haydock

Slightly disappointing last time out at Chepstow, but just didn't quite settle and used up a bit too much. However, the winner that day looks useful too so we were not too disappointed. Soft ground is fine and that last run would have taught him more again too. The Nicholls horse to beat, but feel we've got a leading chance and hopefully he can get back to winning ways before heading to Cheltenham.

Prince Of Arran 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
14:10, Riyadh

Seems to have taken the trip to Saudi well. I was delighted with his prep run at Kempton and we couldn't have got a better draw (4). Frankie Dettori is the best jockey in the world right now so that helps too! He deserves a big one!

Red Verdon 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
14:10, Riyadh

Red Verdon runs in the Red Sea Turf Handicap in Riyadh over 1m7f at 2.10pm. It was a great achievement in itself to be invited to a very competitive race and we are looking forward to taking our chances with the old boy. He was a little disappointing in his prep run last start but has come out of this race well and is in good order. It is a very competitive race on paper with Call The Wind last year’s winner the one to beat. We have added the visors this time to see if we can spark a bit of extra life into him. He has drawn well in 8 and Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Corazon Espinado 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
14:01, Lingfield Park

Course and distance winner penultimate start at a lower grade but is capable at this level. Not so well drawn and heavily penalised for that success. Sure to run his usual great race and always dangerous to overlook with conditions in his favour.

Golden Force 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
14:01, Lingfield Park

Ran a great race here at Lingfield last time out, where he was a touch keen and looked like a drop in trip would suit well. The track is very important to this horse as he likes to race on the pace. Lingfield suits him well and he can go close.

Sevarano 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
13:50, Ascot

Sevarano has had a great start to his chasing career with two wins from three starts over fences so far.
Steve - as he's known at home - slipped going into the first at Newbury on his last outing, it completely unnerved him for the remainder of the race and as a result he couldn’t get into the same rhythm he had in his previous races.
Brendan said he could see the skid marks on the ground in front of the fence on the following circuit, even though it wasn’t exactly a mistake novices are going to learn how to handle these things and the main thing is he’s continued to school well at home. Steve has had a good break since that run and he’s good and fresh today, he’s won on soft ground before so conditions should be fine.
Full Back 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
13:50, Ascot

Been very happy with his switch to chasing - winning his last two at Plumpton and Exeter. Up in grade again here but deserves to take his chance and done well since his last run too. Soft ground and the trip are fine and looking forward to seeing how he gets on in this better race.

Jeremiah Johnson 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
13:26, Lingfield Park

Backward and late developing colt with scope. Has had a gallop round here but sure to be green and will come on considerably for this in what looks like a decent maiden.

Headley George    WINNER! winner

Neck second for Simon's horse.


Sat 20th Feb 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Seems to have improved for a step up in trip and gradually getting stronger. Likely to be thereabouts in an open but low grade affair, if he maintains recent progress.

Maazel 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Course winner here but that came over 7f. Up significantly in trip here to 1m2f so a bit of an unknown on that score, but we feel it's worth a crack off this 3lb lower mark. Draw 12 not great but often held up in his races anyway - really a bit of a fact-finding mission, but ran much better last time out at Chelmsford which gives us hope if getting the trip.

The Warrior    WINNER! winner

Top win at 33/1 for this old timer!


Sat 20th Feb 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Ran well to be a close 4th at Lingfield last time over a mile. Second runner in the race for us - quirky sort, but more than capable in a race like this and off this dropping mark. Last win came an 8lbs higher mark. Another that is up in trip here though, but likes to come from off the pace, so if saving some for the closing stages would be no shock if he ran into a place.

Prince Percy 
Sat 20th Feb 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Still looking for debut win (12 runs) - down 2lbs from last run helps but still need to see more on the track really. Hoping the first time visor helps and really only very small e/w chance at best.

Maxine    WINNER! winner

Yet another third for this Harry Dunlop horse!!


Sat 20th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

Been knocking on the door of late - finishing third the last four times. Had a bit of bad luck the last day too - got hampered a bit in the closing stages, but we feel the step up in trip here to 1m4f will suit and can hopefully be the key to her getting off the mark, while if she runs well over it, can open up more options going forward. Each-way claims, with David Probert riding for the first time. 

De Bruyne Horse    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win from Dave's horse.


Fri 19th Feb 2021
19:15, Southwell

Another solid run last time out here over this trip (3rd) and a repeat of that run would see him go close. Well drawn in 3 and off the same mark so hopefully he can last out this time. The second last time - Mister Freeze - is a danger again, plus the recent winner Three C's.

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third


Fri 19th Feb 2021
18:45, Southwell

In the form of his life at the moment - winning his last two in great fashion. The last of those came here over 5f but stayed on well over that trip to give him another crack over 6f - all wins to date have been over shorter so does have a bit to prove on that score and that would be the worry - however, in his current form we thought it was worth another try. Also up in grade so more on his plate and 5lbs too, but hard to fault his attitude at the moment - should go go well again - probably a small word of caution up in grade and trip, but if seeing out the extra furlong not without a squeak.

Global Hope 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
18:45, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and not without a chance either. Third last time out but that came off a 3 month break so has come on for that run - but we need to make up 5 lengths with Requinto Dawn, who beat us last time. Same mark and George Bass rides again (can claim 5lbs), but probably needs a tiny bit more in this rise in grade, but small Each-way.

Professor Galant 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
18:15, Southwell

Yet to win a race from 8 starts but had several decent runs, including three seconds. Two of those runner-up finishes came here on the fibresand at Southwell too, the latest in early January. George Rooke riding to claim 3lbs here and we feel the cheekpieces will help. Into a Novice Stakes here and gets in with only 8-9 to carry but probably more needed overall. Would still have an e/w chance though and we've probably all got Tributo to beat.

Blue Beret 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Still inexperienced but more chance now handicapping and likely to be suited by the step up in trip. Looks a competitive race of its type but no surprise to see her involved if she shows further progress.

Thebannerkingrebel 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
15:50, Kelso

Was a Graded performer in bumpers and novice hurdles, plus won on chasing debut this season. He took a crashing fall last time out, but we've given him time to recover and he is schooling nicely at home. Providing he gets into a nice jumping rhythm here, then he would have every chance of being competitive here in this good race.

Bridle Loanan 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
15:42, Fakenham

Won well at Fontwell in December, but slightly disappointing next run at Newbury when well back but that was over a shorter trip. But ran quite well in a jumpers' bumper last week - only beaten 7 lengths and seems to have come out of that well. Back over fences here and 7lbs higher than last win but might have an e/w chance in a race that may lack a bit depth outside the hot favourite.

Beat The Breeze 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Won a hat trick this Winter including last time over course and distance. Had a short break and is the type to need a run but everything in place for further progression if things go right for him and at this level.

Ivaquestion    WINNER! winner

Place money landed in a tight finish.


Fri 19th Feb 2021
14:30, Lingfield Park

Gradually developing into a staying handicapper and had a short break since looking like a winner at Kempton last start. This track is not so suitable but nevertheless cannot be discounted at this level.

Deebaj 
Fri 19th Feb 2021
14:30, Lingfield Park

C&D winner here at Lingfield - ran okay in a jumpers' bumper here last time out when only beaten 3/4 of a length in fourth. Probably taking on slightly quicker horses today, but at least we know he stays the trip and acts on the track. Jockey gaining more experience here on only his fifth ride, but capable and can claim a handy 7lbs too - would have an e/w chance.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
20:30, Chelmsford

In good form and likes the track. Will need a personal best today. New jockey riding - Connor Murtagh, who can claim 3lbs too. If things go right has an e/w chance in a competitive contest.

Visibility 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
20:30, Chelmsford

Has failed to build on first run of this year, when winning at Wolves in Jan. Still 4lbs higher than that win and despite running okay in his last two races needs to find more. Luke Morris a plus in the saddle and we are down another pound here, but based on recent runs probably only a small e/w chance.

Fuwairt 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford

Excuses the last two runs. If he gets cover and can be delivered late has an e/w chance. But this does look the hotter division.

Habanero Star 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

Ran okay here last time out to be third of 9 in a Classified Stakes, but a bit more on her plate here back into a handicap. On a plus, we are 5lbs lower than last time she ran in a handicap and the way she ran on last time over 7f here, suggests the step up to 1m will suit. Small e/w chance, but Hunters Step, who we used to have, sets a fair standard and the most likely winner for me.

Ozzie Man 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
17:00, Fontwell Park

Run okay on the AWT the other day. We think the soft ground and step up in distance will help which should give him a reasonable chance at a nice price.

Dorking Lad

Sopran Thor 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
16:50, Sandown

Promising run last time when fourth at Chepstow - certainly going the right way. Has his fair share of weight in this handicap debut, but hopefully he can run well with the ground fine.

Weststreet 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
16:28, Fontwell Park

Westreet has had a disappointing season so far, he comes out of his races very well so I have to think he’s saving a bit to himself, as an 11-year-old he’s actually perfectly entitled to be a bit cute. I’ve put blinkers back on to him for the second time, he loves this ground and hopefully he will give a better show. He is most likely to go off hunter chasing after this season, he’s a great jumper so he would be highly recommended.

Call Off The Dogs 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:58, Fontwell Park

Drop back in distance we do not see as a worry in these conditions, so hopefully he has every chance of being involved again despite being up another 2lbs here. Course winner.

Promising run last time when second at Newbury, but in a competitive race today so will probably need to improve again. If he does, should have every chance though and acted well on the heavy ground last time.

Cheque En Blanc    WINNER! winner

Another win at Fontwell for this horse - simply out-stayed them all.


Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:23, Fontwell Park

Drop back in distance on a track he runs well at which hopefully will give him every chance as stays further than this and that will help in the heavy ground. Should have a decent each-way chance.

Caltex 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:05, Sandown

Very happy with his return run at Market Rasen last time out as that came off the back of a wind op. Just didn't quite see out the 3m that day so the drop back to 2m4f here will help. Acts well with cut underfoot and can be expected to have a lot more confidence now with his breathing after that last run. A few others with similar chances, with the Rowe runner probably the one to aim at, but we'd be disappointed if he doesn't run well with an fair e/w chance.

Twenty Twenty 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:05, Sandown

Won at Plumpton two runs back in a strange race. Found 2m a bit sharp last time at Leicester so hopefully the back up in trip will help and see him running back in the frame at a fair price. Tom Cheesman, who gets on well with him, rides again and can claim 5lbs.

Not Another Muddle 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:05, Sandown

Nice horse but is creeping down the handicap after losing his way a bit recently. Slightly better run last time and return to a track he's won at before, but probably still best watched on this occasion until we see a bit more on the course.

Albert Van Ornum 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
14:48, Fontwell Park

On paper, has got it to do but you never know as only three runners!

Anythingforlove    WINNER! winner

Cracking win for Jamie and the team.


Thu 18th Feb 2021
14:30, Sandown

Anythingforlove is a nice mare. She won two bumpers last season and has won a brace of novice hurdles this term. Found 2m around Haydock too sharp, and will appreciate this step up in trip on this kind of track. This looks a good race, and she will need to improve to take a hand, but it would be great to pick up some black type here if possible.

Le Milos    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Tim.


Thu 18th Feb 2021
14:13, Fontwell Park

Top effort last time out, when third at Exeter, as that came off 11 months off and after wind surgery. Similar trip but eased in grade here will help and seems to have come on well for that last run. Won't be easy with this big weight (12-2) in the ground, but should find this company more to his liking and would have a fair e/w chance in an open race and probably our best chance on the day of getting something.

Eragon De Chanay    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gary's horse.


Thu 18th Feb 2021
14:13, Fontwell Park

Disappointing so far - pulled up the last day at Wincanton. But ran well to be third behind a classy sort the time before so if finding that level again can go well and if coping with the heavy ground (has won on heavy before), should have every chance.

Right Hand Of God 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
14:13, Fontwell Park

Was still going quite well in a weak race when unseating Jamie last time at Plumpton. Has come out of that race okay and seems fine after that unseat. If his jumping holds up, should have every chance and could run better than odds suggest.

Early Du Lemo 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:55, Sandown

Competitive race here, but ran well last time in a better race so that gives us hope. Drop back in distance, we feel, can only help too which gives him a reasonable chance off a 2lb lower mark.

Golden Boy Grey 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:38, Fontwell Park

Promising first run, when winning at Sandown but disappointing second run at Newbury - but hopefully back in an easier race, that seems to lack depth, which should give him every chance and the longer trip should suit.

Aeronisi 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:38, Fontwell Park

Fair debut run at Stratford so a horse showing the right attitude, but more learning to be done here and will be better once getting handicapped. The first three in the betting should be fighting this one out!

Representing Bob 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:38, Fontwell Park

Representing Bob is a nicely bred individual who has shown a bit of promise, but is quite an immature horse who needs a bit of time. He is learning on the job and will be ok but I'm not sure he'll be in love with the ground this testing.

Detatched 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:30, Leicester

Been running over hurdles of late, but is back over fences here for just the second time. Ran okay on chase debut at Sedgefield a year ago over 2m5f, but we feel the drop back to 2m in the heavy ground will help - especially at this stiff track. We are also 6lbs lower than last run over fences (with the jockey's claim), which helps. The Mullins and Williams runners are probably the likely winners and might just be a few slightly better handicapped in the race than us, but if his jumping holds up could still run well if getting through the ground.

Ballydoyle    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:20, Sandown

First run in a handicap - conditional jockeys' race so our pilot can claim 3lbs too. This should hopefully will give him a reasonable chance, if acting on the very heavy ground.

Imphal 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:20, Sandown

Second runner in the race for us. Been beaten twice in his last two bumpers but ran well both times and was good to keep him ticking over in actual races when the weather was bad. Hopefully the return back to hurdles will see some improvement on only his fourth run over the sticks.

Let The Heirs Walk 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
13:20, Sandown

Highly-tried last time out here in a Listed Hurdle so can ignore that. Back in calmer waters here and down another 4lbs. Had a small break to freshen up but is a horse that likes to run off a lay-off and should be fine on the ground. Still, I'd like to see a return to form on the track before passing on anything with more confidence and does have a big weight to deal with in conditions.

Raha 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
19:20, Kempton Park

Has run respectably in two runs this year - the step up to a mile will suit. She is dropped in grade here and couldn't be in better form at home. She has a good each-way chance at a nice price.

Agent of Fortune 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
19:20, Kempton Park

Prolific winner last season but lost her way a bit towards the end of the year. Hints of a return to form last time out and down another 2lbs in the ratings too. Drop in grade helps, but draw 10 not ideal. However, seems in good form and so if able to overcome a bad draw, should have every chance.

Dove Divine 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
18:50, Kempton Park

Came to us in the summer from the Hughie Morrsion yard but only seen the track once for us since. Had a few issues but seems ready to run now and we feel the drop back to 1m will suit. Has run well here in the past too and certainly has ability and will be winning races - not slow. Rossa Ryan a good booking too and we'll learn a lot more here today. Will come on for the run too after 196 days off, but also we'd not be totally shocked if she ran into a place in a race. Regardless, certainly one to note going forward.

Francolin 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
17:05, Hereford

Francolin is a good looking son of Cokoriko, it’s not a sire I know but he’s got a good attitude and he enjoys his work so I would be happy to have more. He was kindly sent to me by his breeder, he was due to run in point to points but that has obviously been curtailed this spring. He’s not been with me for very long but he does go nicely enough.

Global Destination 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:50, Wolverhampton

He has come out of his last race well and looks to be hopefully in a more competitive grade now. This looks a nice option for him with the Ali Stronge trained runner the horse to beat on paper. He has drawn one and Tom Eaves takes the ride.

Soyuz 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:45, Kempton Park

Showed a little in two starts at the backend last year and still looks progressive. Probably destined for handicaps and will get further in time. Sure to come on for this but no complete surprise if he got involved here.

Judex Lefou 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:35, Hereford

Another of ours that's on a bit of a recovery mission after some average runs at the end of last season. Has also had a wind op since his last run so we'll be hoping he can kick on now. Small break so expected to improve for the outing, but 5lbs lower than last run and Charlie's 5lb claim means we are 10lbs better off than last time. Trip and ground are fine though and slight ease in grade a further help. But really on first run back (after op) we'd like to see some improvement on the track first.

Sognatore 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Difficult to gauge the strength of the race with some smartly-bred newcomers. Sognatore has been gelded after some errant behaviour last time out - looking for better behaviour here and hopefully a better result.

Petesorse 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Backward half brother to stable stalwart Roundabout Magic though this one will need further. Has done plenty of work and a barrier trial last year but sure to be better for the experience.

Saray Prince 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Having his third run here - he will learn more and will be more competitive once he is handicapped.

Legends Ryde 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
16:05, Hereford

Legends Ryde looked a progressive horse last season, but lost her way at the start of this season, but she was suffering from a fibrillating heart. We have rectified that, and she looked back on form when 3rd last time out on handicap debut when the winner looked thrown in. This looks a suitable next step for her, and providing she can build on that last start, she shouldn’t be too far away.

Bassarabad 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
15:12, Wetherby

Had his problems in recent years so nice to get him back on the track. Dropping mark is a help and is also a past CD winner here, but returning from another 3 months off so feel he'll improve for this. He'll like the ground though and if getting back in the swing of things after a run of two can hopefully pick another up another race now back down to last winning mark.

A Time To Shine    WINNER! winner

Well backed and ran well - certainly one to note next time!


Wed 17th Feb 2021
15:05, Hereford

A Time To Shine is a huge horse who finished third in a point to point before joining me and he has been placed in both of his hurdle runs this season. This will be his chasing debut but he jumps so well and because he’s got such an enormous stride hurdles look too small for him.

Tallow For Coal    WINNER! winner

No match for the first two, but a promising run still.


Wed 17th Feb 2021
14:30, Hereford

Tallow For Coal won an Irish point on his debut, and ran well to be 2nd on his racecourse debut over hurdles at Uttoxeter. Slightly disappointed when 3rd at Plumpton on his next start, but the track didn’t really suit and it turned into a sprint. This step up in trip should suit and he's got every chance in an open race.

Kaphumor 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
14:30, Hereford

Kaphumor has been disappointing in both of his races for me this season having won a point to point previously. He’s a horse that shows plenty at home on the gallops but he has not travelled in his races and I think he might need some form of headgear on in future and he’s most likely to go chasing after today.

Justicialism 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
14:15, Wolverhampton

Has run two solid races to date and wouldn't need to improve much to figure in what looks a weak race. He is well drawn too, which will also help. Can run well.

Chozen 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
14:05, Wetherby

Hot race and returning from almost a year off here so would be a tall order. Does, however, have a very light weight (10-1), which will help in the ground and seems well at home. Plus, does actually have a fair record when fresh - last two wins came off 4 1/2 months and 8 months off, so that gives us some hope, but nice to get going with him again here.

Bebraveforglory 
Wed 17th Feb 2021
13:35, Wetherby

A horse that's shown a bit of promise, notably last time out at Chepstow when a fair fourth in a Novice Hurdle back in November. Had a small break since and had a wind op during that time to help with his breathing. Is also expected to benefit from running in a handicap now for the first time and even though the Skelton horse is feared, feel we are not without an each-way chance here.

Giogiobbo 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
19:10, Newcastle

Has probably run better in recent runs than finishing positions suggest so the 2lb drop in the ratings will help here. David Probert takes over from the saddle too and was only beaten 2 lengths here last time out over this CD. Still just falling short a bit in his races though so more needed to make up the 2l that Storm Over beat us last time.

Maysong 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
18:40, Newcastle

He hit a bit of a flat spot in his last few runs last year so we decided to give him a break to freshen him up. He has been in good form at home and his work has been pleasing. This looks a nice option for him with the well handicapped Chosen World looking like the horse to beat on paper. With have added cheekpieces to help sharpen him up and Dylan Hogan who claims 3lb takes the ride.

Donald Llewellyn 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
16:55, Kempton Park

Going to be a tough call to beat the favourite here with that one winning well last time out. Our fella is back from a break too - just over 4 months - so no matter what will improve for this. But the drop back to 1m4f will help and a poor Classified race that sees us as the joint top-rated in the field, which would give us an e/w squeak.

Mukha Magic 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
16:25, Kempton Park

Hector Loza 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
15:55, Kempton Park

Coming down the handicap but still not been able to take advantage though ran well enough last start. Likes it round here and well drawn so might get things more his own way. Needs to get his confidence back.

Enough Already 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
15:55, Kempton Park

Ran well on debut run for us when a close fourth at Wolverhampton but messed up the start a bit last time out here and lost all chance after that really - can put a line through that. We feel the step up from 7f to 1m here will suit though and is now 4lbs lower than last time. However, is a big horse and can be a bit keen in his races so will need to settle better. Also a bad draw in 10 here makes life very hard - will need to be dropped in from there and see if Dougie can settle him. But overall a big ask from the draw and the Gosden Godolphin runner might be hard for us all to beat. Be delighted with a step forward and on a plus we'll learn more for the future.

Arenas Del Tiempo 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
15:25, Kempton Park

Ran encouragingly both starts last Autumn including on debut here. Wintered well and has plenty of scope. Sure to find her races and is one to look forward to. Will come on plenty for the run but no surprise to see her involved.

Trixie Waterbury    WINNER! winner

Another nice win for this Harry Dunlop runner.


Tue 16th Feb 2021
14:55, Kempton Park

Has improved over her last two runs - winning at Lingfield and then only just touched off there last time. Up another 3lbs here and different track, but Luke Morris in the saddle still and that's a help as starting to build up a nice partnership with her. Mayson Mount, who we beat a few runs ago, is feared on better terms this time. Competitive for the grade, but Trixie is well after three weeks off and can go well again if coping with the slight rise in the ratings, then hopeful she can be in the shake-up. Each-way.

Shackabooah 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
14:55, Kempton Park

Took a big step in the right direction last time out at Wolverhampton - when a very close second. Also probably would have won that day had he got a better run in the closing stages. Escapes any rise for that too as it was an apprentice race so off the same mark but with Jonathan also able to claim 5lbs then that helps. Draw 13 not ideal though, so might again need better luck than last time from there, but if certainly feel the penny is starting to drop now. Each-way.

Doonbeg Farmer 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
14:25, Kempton Park

Failed to settle last time so dropped in trip to ensure faster pace. Still learning so looking to teach him something today. Hoping for a good solid run but may just lack the speed to get involved at the business end.

Pablo Del Pueblo 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
13:55, Kempton Park

Strong, attractive  horse with scope who has needed time but done plenty of galloping. Likely to need further and will know much more after today though could easily run a big race on debut if he stays calm.

Hudson Yard 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
13:45, Catterick

Hudson Yard won well last time out after a huge absence. That wasn't much of a race and this looks a bit deeper, but she's bound to improve for the run and the experience so providing she doesn't 'bounce' she can surely go close to defying a penalty.

Thomas Macdonagh 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
13:00, Carlisle

Thomas Macdonagh was a very decent novice hurdler and has transferred that to the bigger obstacles this season and won last time out when left alone. His mark is unchanged here and providing he stays this longer trip, then he looks to have every chance of following up after a recent wind operation.

Mustang Alpha 
Tue 16th Feb 2021
12:30, Carlisle

Mustang Alpha looked a progressive novice when winning nicely at Hereford in November, but disappointed on his next start at Doncaster. Nothing came to light after that run, but we've given him time to freshen up and he comes here in good form. The form of his Hereford victory has worked out quite nicely so providing he recaptures that form and handles this heavy ground, he has a chance here.

Beat The Judge 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
16:50, Lingfield Park

Been doing well this season over fences and looks one of the leading players here on form. Must have every chance and has run on the AW (Kempton) in the past, but fitness would be a slight concern though as been off the track for around 3 months.

Trixster 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
16:30, Warwick

Another of ours that is returning from a wind op after a few poor runs at the back of last year. Returns on a 3lb lower rating too and is a horse that seems okay on most ground. Is also a past course winner here when winning off a break so the 3 month time off isn't too much of a concern. Probably a small word of caution with this being his first run back after the wind surgery as you can never really tell until they are racing proper, but is certainly better than last two runs. Competitive but small e/w chance.

Hard To Forget 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
16:30, Warwick

On a bit of a recovery after bring pulled up last time out at Bangor. But trying to get some confidence back here back over hurdles and off an 8lb lower mark than over fences. Also sports the first-time cheekpieces to try and sharpen him up, while the slightly longer trip is fine. Capable off this sort of mark so small e/w chance if coming back to form, but recent runs suggest we'd like to see it on the track again to be more confident.

Distingo 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
15:45, Lingfield Park

Unlucky loser there last time and hopefully can put things right today, although a slightly tougher race. But in good forma and acts well here on the AW.

Darkest Day    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w call at 22/1 from Gary.


Mon 15th Feb 2021
15:15, Lingfield Park

First time on the AWT which we think will suit him. Competitive race but in good form and must have e/w chances. Jamie rides.

Wax And Wane 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
14:20, Warwick

Last seen pulling up back in October so we've given him a bit of time off and he's also had a wind op during that time. A few pounds lower too on this second handicap hurdles run and a horse that's run well fresh in the past too. Well at home and even though we expect him to improve for this, hopeful he can kick on now we've sorted his breathing out and hoping one to note after a few runs back.

Jumping Cats 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
14:10, Lingfield Park

In great form with two good wins here at Lingfield in similar races. However, as a result as got a double penalty to overcome. Remains in great form though and we've got Niall on to help offset some of that weight (5lbs) - must have every chance still. Probably got the Ian Williams horse to beat, who we've got to give 10lbs too.

Williamdeconqueror 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
13:50, Warwick

A really nice young horse, but he needs a mark. This is his third run, and whilst trip etc should be fine, we don't expect to see him in the shake up today, but hopefully a nice horse for the future.

Speedy Choice 
Mon 15th Feb 2021
13:50, Warwick

As with our other runner she will need a mark to be seen to her best effect. The heavy ground last time did not help her cause at all and hopefully it will be less attritional today.

Archimedes 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
16:50, Southwell

Probably have the Murphy horse to beat, but we certainly have a big chance. Been running well of late without winning but we are down another pound here and a drop in grade here into a Classified Stakes will gives us a decent chance. Consistent performer with the track and trip fine - in great form and should go close.

Gently Spoken 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
16:50, Southwell

Yet to win a race from 10 starts, but has run some okay races in defeat. Jonathan Fisher riding to claim 5lbs this time helps in a poor race so not surprised to see a better run, but still need to see more and doesn't really look a race to go overboard in.

Early Morning Rain

Smokey Malone    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Julia and another top TQ View winner too.


Sun 14th Feb 2021
16:20, Southwell

Smokey Malone ran well to finish second here last run, the form of that race has been working out and he has been working well since, blinkers fitted again as they seemed to do the trick last time, he should have a good e/w chance again.

Driftwood 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
15:50, Southwell

Two non-runners help our cause here - especially the Watson horse being out, who was going to be hard to beat. That swings things back to us and really on known form - looking at the other two in the race - we'd be very disappointed if she's not breaking her duck here today. Acts well on the surface and the track. Should win!

Best Tamayuz 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
15:20, Southwell

Having his 55th career run here today, but fair bit to prove at the moment. Has dropped to a lowly mark though - 10lbs lower than last win and gets in here with a light weight, but does need to show us some return to form on the track. Trying, however, to mix it up a bit here upping him in trip to 1m4f, but has run well over this distance in the past so that gives us hope. Overall, certainly capable off this dropping mark, though hard to get excited until we see a return to form.

Grandeur Dame 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
15:10, Exeter

After winning a bumper and then being placed in a listed bumper at Cheltenham we decided to go hurdling with Ru as I didn’t think staying in bumper races would be good for him. We chucked him in at the deep end in his first outing over hurdles - The Tolworth at Sandown - but he ran perfectly well enough, his jumping can be very quick and he learnt as he went along under a patient ride from Aidan. He looked as if he was going to run on going to the second last before weakening from the final hurdle. He is still a weak baby really, who is going to be a stayer in time and my plan is to get him some experience in good races this season and if he wins one all well and good, but if he remains a novice for next autumn I’d be happy too. Ru is a very forward going type who enjoys heavy ground and with another summer on his back I think he could make up into a nice horse for next winter.
Mukha Magic 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
14:50, Southwell

Easy winner here in the week and has come out of that race very well. Look to have the Prescott horse to beat, but that horse is unproven on the track and surface here so we hope that will swing it in our favour. We could not be happier with M&M and despite up 5lbs here, we've Callum Hutchinson riding to claim 7lbs so actually only 3lbs more than last time (George Rooke claimed 5lbs last time). No penalty kick, but hopeful he can follow-up. 

Duke Of Firenze    WINNER! winner

Got up on the line - great call from Dave.


Sun 14th Feb 2021
14:20, Southwell

12 years-old now but a horse that is known to most. Continues to run well on the AW and has run well to be 2nd and 3rd here the last twice. Graham Lee has been getting on well with him - an experienced jockey on an experienced horse! Only 7 runners now so just 2 places up for grabs with the e/w, but he's running well at the moment and in great form at home. With the race expected to be run to suit, then not without a chance at a price.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
13:50, Southwell

Oud Metha Bridge had excuses last run at Kempton, he has run well at Southwell in the past and is worth another go here, he has the right draw and is well at home, he must have a good e/w chance again.

Bond Angel 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
13:50, Southwell

Returned in January from a break to run well here over 7f, but hasn't really kicked on from that. CD winner though and down 3lbs from last run and Jonathan takes off 5lbs again. Certainly can't rule out on best form - has won here off a pound higher mark in this grade before, but does need to show more on the track first after a few below-par runs.

Norley 
Sun 14th Feb 2021
13:40, Exeter

Norley broke a blood vessel last time out at Plumpton, it’s not something he’s ever done before at home or in a race.
When he arrived at Plumpton that day he was very wound up and with the stables being so close to the racecourse he got worse during the day, as a result he was way too keen early on in his race and both of these factors caused him to break a blood vessel. Norley is a highly strung horse, which is not unusual for horses by Yeats but he’s never been like that before so I have to hope it was a one off. Therefore, based on that last run, today is a bit of a confidence-boosting exersise to try and get him to put that last experience behind him. The Henderson, Mulholland and Hobbs runners should really be fighting this out.
Avorisk Et Perils    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w call from Gary.


Sat 13th Feb 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

One of two in the race for us today and probably our slightly better chance. A close fifth here last time in a worse race, but probably could have got closer for a clearer run. Same mark but lighter weight in this better race so if building on that last run would have a fair e/w chance, with Convertible and Stopsearch the likely dangers.

Bealach 
Sat 13th Feb 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

One of two in the race for us. Only second run for the yard after coming from the Eve Johnson Houghton camp so we are finding our feet still. Didn't seem to act at Southwell last time out and was probably running over a trip on the sharp side that day (1m). So the switch to Lingfield, where he's run well before, can hopefully see a much better run and the step up in trip is another plus. Does have a wide draw in 10 though, so might be tough from there, but no shock to see a step forward here. 

Ahdab    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy win for Ed's horse and another nice TQ View winner this month.


Sat 13th Feb 2021
12:20, Lingfield Park

This horse has always shown ability at home and on the track but does have his quirks. He was unlucky last start at Lingfield when getting pipped on the line by a late surge from the Charlie Hills trained runner Giussepe Cassioli. He is in good form at home at the moment and this looks a nice option for him. The one to beat on paper looks to be the David Loughnane trained Lammas. Ahdab has been drawn in seven and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

14:15, Southwell

Back from around 3 months off but has run well fresh in the past and seems well at home, but still likely to improve for this with the time off. Has also acted well at the track before too, but is yet to win on the AW from 8 runs. Trip ideal and George takes off 5lbs to help as all four career wins have been when rated in the 60's. Chance, but looks competitive affair despite only six runners and would probably need a career best.

Leo Minor 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
19:00, Newcastle

Not been running too badly of late, despite not winning. Dropped another pound here will help though and Mollie continues in the saddle to claim 7lbs. Step up to 6f will suit and the first-time blinkers are on today to try and help eke out a bit more. Has also run well at the track in the past - a bit more needed, but small e/w chance based on the extra furlong and dropping mark.

Outrage 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
18:00, Newcastle

A bit of a rematch between horses that have run against each other on the 21st Jan. Outrage just got pipped late on that day by Be Proud. Outrage won at Lingfield a few days later though and hoping he continues the good form as he has beaten most of the rest of these on previous meetings this winter.

Ar Mest 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
16:45, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us and our better chance, for sure. Wasn't beaten far in a similar race at Lingfield last time out. Did run a bit free that day and that probably cost him in the end, so will need to settle a bit better - we are leaving the visor off this time. So, a repeat of that last run and if he can settle a tad better that should give him an each-way chance.

Motdepas 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
16:45, Kempton Park

More needed on what we've seen so far and is returning from a few months out. Fit and well though, but will be seen in a better light once returning to the sticks.

Bridle Loanan 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Nice winner at Fontwell two runs back but failed to build on that last time in a better race at Newbury. We feel he's better than that last effort though so not one to give up on when back over the sticks. But first try on the AW here so a bit of an unknown - the Henderson horse, Lust For Glory, sets a fair standard.

The Flying Sofa 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
15:40, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us. In good form at home and has certainly improved for his last run at Fakenham after almost a year out. Trip and surface will be fine and would have an each-way squeak, but another race that looks quite competitive with some fair Henderson and Nicholls runners in.

Mister Tickle 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
15:40, Kempton Park

Pulled up the last day at Stratford, but has had a wind operation since so hopefully can do better going forward now on only second run for the yard. Another that has done most of his running over further over the sticks so remains to be seen if this trip will be a bit on the sharp side - but does like better ground in the turf, so the track is expected to suit.

Episode 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
15:10, Kempton Park

Ran well last time at Fakenham in a mares' chase (2m5f) - fit and well, so will be trying her best here, but totally different conditions here and over this 2m trip on this quicker surface, then likely to find some of these just a bit too quick.

Quiana 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
14:40, Kempton Park

Has winning flat form in France so that gives us hope here. Has improved at home for his hurdles run at Plumpton last time out as that came off a break. Hopeful the track and surface here will suit and would have a small e/w chance, but really the race looks between the Nicholls and Pipe runners.

Dorking Lad 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
14:05, Kempton Park

Looks our best chance on the day. Yet to win a race, but only had 5 career runs and gone close several times over hurdles. First run on an AW surface in a race, but no reason why it won't suit and remains in good form at home. Jamie rides and should go well.

Counteract 
Thu 11th Feb 2021
14:05, Kempton Park

Waiting for better ground before he goes back in a hurdle. Will probably prefer this surface to what he's been running on previously and we may see an improved performance from him here as was very weak last year and yet to have his going this trem. But some useful types in here today.

Lavorante    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Thu 11th Feb 2021
12:35, Kempton Park

Former Pointer and a horse we like - unknown as to whether he'll be good enough on this first run for us and on the AW, but would not be shocked if he ran better than odds suggest. Regardless, is a horse to note going forward once the weather settles down.

Quarry Beach    WINNER! winner

Improved run from Harry's horse.


Wed 10th Feb 2021
20:15, Wolverhampton

Yet to win a race from 23 career runs, so that tells it's own story. Has run over a variety of trips recently but mixing it up by returning her to 6f - she's not raced over this distance since 2018. Shows plenty of speed at home though so we feel it's worth a crack and has run well many times here at Wolves (without winning). Nice draw in 2 helps, down another few pounds to a career-low rating and Hollie Doyle booked to ride. We also feel the first-time visor will help her focus and if that's the case can hopefully hold on longer in the front this time. Overall, needs to improve, and runs-to-wins record suggests a degree of caution, but we are trying a few different things today to see if they help. 

Lady Quickstep    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Wed 10th Feb 2021
18:45, Wolverhampton

Returned from a break to win here last month - failed to follow-up on that at Kempton last time off a 5lbs higher mark, but took too much of a hold that day and had nothing left at the finish. Return to Wolves will suit and still fairly well-treated on old form, having been rated in the late 70's and 80 in the past. George Bass continues in the saddle and can claim 5lbs here. If settling better than last time, then should have a nice e/w chance, but only 7 runners so just the 2 places on offer.

Waltzing 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
19:15, Southwell

Down the field on debut run for us after coming from the Martyn Meade yard. Has come on for that run but, of course, a lot more needed and only dropped 3lbs. On a plus, is still very lightly-raced (4 runs), so will have more to come and gained some experience of the track last time out. First time blinkers are on today though to see if they help.

Driftwood 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
19:15, Southwell

One of two in the race for us and looks our better chance. Ran well here on Sunday behind a hot favourite, but this should be easier. Stayed on well that day over 6f so the step up again to 7f will be in her favour – ran well over this trip here two runs ago. Looks a tight little race, with many chances, but this filly has run well in all five of races here – without winning – and should not be far away again here.

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

A nice double on the day for Gay.


Tue 9th Feb 2021
18:45, Southwell

Grabbed second career win at Wolves last week – up 5lbs for that and returns to the fibresand here. But acts well here too – CD winner – so the switch back to Southwell is fine. Has come out of that last race well and George helps again by claiming 5lbs. If running to the level as last time, then no reason why we can’t be going close again.

Cool Spirit 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
18:45, Southwell

CD winner here in the past so has form at the track, but first run for the yard and not had the horse long. Also not been out since last Sept so back from around 5 months off so we'll find our feet more here today. On a plus, has dropped to a very fair-looking mark - has been rated 80 in the past, so that gives us hope that he's got more to come once we get to know him a bit better.

Rafiot 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
18:15, Southwell

Bolted up last time here - 5 lengths - over 1m4f. Up 8lbs for that though and up two grades so more on his plate here. But handled the fibresand well that day and must have every chance in a tough race, if staying the distance. Is now up to 2m.

Tue 9th Feb 2021
16:45, Southwell

Likes the fibresand – is a proven CD winner here and now eased in grade a bit should have a much better chance. Dropping down the handicap too – we are 2lbs lower than last time and also have George riding to claim 5lbs. This means he’s now down to his last winning mark and that also came around this time of the year with George riding too. Probably have the Osborne runner to fear most, but that horse has never raced on the fibresand so hoping we’ll have that as an advantage. Should go well.

Imphal 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
16:20, Kempton Park

Probably our best chance of the day. Tough race but hopefully his flat experience will come into good use. Was a close second in a similar race at Lingfield last time out and with that coming off a 2 month break can be expected to have improved for it. Has run at Kempton (AW) in the past too, so that will help.

Esprit De Somoza    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w call from Gary.


Tue 9th Feb 2021
15:50, Kempton Park

Winner at Lingfield last time in a similar race. More competitive race we feel today with the likes of Ecco, Honest Vic and Mill Green, but in good order and that recent win has restored some confidence - must have every chance again - decent e/w option.

Gentlemans Dream 
Tue 9th Feb 2021
14:50, Kempton Park

Another one which has been waiting for decent ground. No slouch but first try on an AW surface and could advise no more than small e/w chance.

Gypsy Boy 
Mon 8th Feb 2021
17:00, Wolverhampton

Second runner in the race for us. Not shown much from 9 runs so far so into this Selling Stakes. Nice draw in 3 helps and stays a bit further than this 7f trip so we'll be hoping to make use of that. Poor race and George's claim help so not without an e/w chance, but the Burke runner looks the one to be on.

Asgoodasitgets 
Mon 8th Feb 2021
17:00, Wolverhampton

One of two in the race for us. Still learning after just two runs - third run here though so will get a mark after this and we feel Wolves will suit him better than Southwell. Okay draw in 6 and George helps with his 5lb claim, but the ratings suggest the Burke runner - Open Mystery - looks the clear one to beat in this Seller.

Shackabooah    WINNER! winner

Wolves suited Scott's horse much better.


Mon 8th Feb 2021
16:30, Wolverhampton

Only had 5 career runs and despite showing bits of form you'd think more is needed here on recent runs. Last of 6 at Southwell last time out and dropped 5lbs for that. Track should suit though as hung left last time and we also feel the step up to 7f will bring out more improvement, but we need to see it on the course first.

Trying to keep him ticking over with the lack of jumping action at the moment - fit and well and the 2m4f trip will be fine as stays 3m+ over the sticks. Track and surface an unknown - first run on the AW, but acts well on good ground so every chance it will be okay. These races are probably not ones to get too involved in but not without a chance of getting involved.

Sun 7th Feb 2021
16:05, Southwell

The Fahey horse - Double Dealing - will be hard to topple here, but we should hopefully have a good chance of getting placed. Has run well at the track in her four runs - placed twice  - so his ability to handle the surface will be a big advantage. Fit and well, plus the drop back to 6f will be in her favour after just getting a bit tired over 7f here last time.

Cable Guy 
Sun 7th Feb 2021
16:05, Southwell

Is ready to make his debut and looks to have some speed (as he is bred to). The big question mark is the surface, but I feel he will like it. As always, he will come on for the run, but should make a nice debut in a race that seems to lack depth.

De Bruyne Horse    WINNER! winner

Another solid run from Dave's horse.


Sun 7th Feb 2021
15:35, Southwell

Never really got into the race here last time out, but ran much better the time before when a close third over this trip. Better drawn this time (3) so hopeful he can get a better position early on and slight drop in grade will help. Phil knows him well and taking his racing well at the moment. Feel he's got a solid e/w chance.

Vivency 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
20:00, Kempton Park

Got up on the line here last time out and up 3lbs for that should give her another decent chance of following up. Took a bit of a hold that last day too, so to last out was encouraging. Is still learning as only had four career runs, so hopefully she can settle better this time, which will help in the closing stages. Danny Muscutt, who rode last time, remains in the saddle.

Parikarma 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
20:00, Kempton Park

It is a very similar field as to her last start here where she very nearly got the job done. She has come out of this race well and is in good order at home. The favourite is Vivency who we are now 3lb better off in the weights than last start (close third last time out to that horse). She has drawn well in six and Tom Marquand takes the ride. Each-way.

Prince of Arran 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
18:30, Kempton Park

Seems in great order. His work has been good and Kempton is his favourite track. Interesting he has never run over his favourite trip there (2m) so will be nice to see how he goes over it today. He will definitely improve for the run fitness-wise as Saudi is his main target and Rainbow Dreamer, who won this race last year, is a decent horse but it will take a good performance to beat him.

Savitar    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner - but a solid run from Lee's horse and one to note next time.


Sat 6th Feb 2021
17:25, Kempton Park

Certainly on a fair mark based on old form, but a bit to prove at the moment after running down the field on his last run (Lingfield). Had a break since that last run too so coming back from a 6 month break. The return to Kempton could help though - has run well on his three previous visits here - but expected to improve for the run after his time off. 

Zankala 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:55, Kempton Park

She showed much more promise at Newcastle when running fifth. I am hoping the easier mile here will suit her better and she should hopefully run a nice race. Hollie Doyle takes the ride and an obvious plus in the saddle.

Blazer Two 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:55, Kempton Park

Three fair runs to date - two here and one at Wolves. First run in a handicap here will make life a bit easier and we feel the step up in trip will suit. Nice draw in 3 and George booked to claim 5lb will help with his weight on handicap debut. Taking on some in-form rivals, but with a bit of improvement could have small each-way claims

Pure Bubbles 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Only had three career runs but has shown a lot of promise to date. Wasn't beaten far at Lingfield last time out over 1m2f, but feel the step up in trip here will suit. Should go well with the Appleby and Gosden runners to beat, but looks to be another good chance on the day for us.

Honours 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Still learning her trade - down the field on debut here back in December, but the longer trip here will help. Likely to be better once handicapped though and with a bit more experience.

High Up In The Air    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner - looks a progressive chaser for Gary.


Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:05, Sandown

Delighted with his progress recently - winning his last three. In great form at home and takes a step up into a better race here but gets in with a very low weight (10-4). Dostal Phil probably to beat, but jumps well and looks one of my best chances on the day. Hopefully he can continue his winning run.

Party Planner 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:00, Lingfield Park

Has just joined the yard and ran well last run to out run her odds after a wind operation. If she can build on that run she should have a good each-way chance but there are a couple of in-form horses in the race.

Prince Percy 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
16:00, Lingfield Park

Plenty to prove at the moment after some average efforts - trying the first time blinkers today to see if that helps but hard to get excited until we see more.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
15:30, Sandown

Kiltealy Briggs was a good novice hurdler last season, but always promised to be a better chaser, and he has run two good races this season to be 2nd and 3rd over inadequate trips. His 3rd last time out came in a Grade 2, and he steps up in trip here on his handicap debut. He is out of a sister to a Grand National winner, so stamina is in his pedigree, yet he has the class to be running well over shorter trips. Looks to have a decent chance to be very competitive here.

Dom disappointed in the Welsh National last time out but the ground was no where near soft enough for him, he loves it completely bottomless and everything happens too quickly for him in better conditions. He is a talented horse but I think he could still show us more on a racecourse so he’s wearing first time blinkers today and that’s why I’ve dropped him back in trip, in case he does too much early on.

Benatar 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
14:55, Sandown

Ran well on his return last time out at Cheltenham in the Caspian Caviar. Has come on for that since and should go well/ Fair share of weight, but on the same mark here, but that is for a reason as he's the top-rated in the race.

In The Genes 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
14:51, Lingfield Park

She has shown very little in her first three starts and I am hoping to see some improvement now she has a mark. Rab Havlin takes the ride.

Red Verdon 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

He has been in good form at home and should run a nice race. Bangkok is the horse to beat on paper - we are rated 5lbs lower and off level weights here so a bit to find. But only 5 runners and a nice prize on offer so certainly worth a crack. Adam Kirby takes the ride.

Royal Heart 
Sat 6th Feb 2021
12:00, Lingfield Park

He has shown some promise on his three runs in novice company and hopefully we should see further improvement here on handicap debut. The one to beat on paper is the James Tate trained runner. Ours has drawn well in four though and Adam Kirby takes the ride.

Gossip 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
19:15, Newcastle

Won at Southwell four runs back, but is still 2lbs higher than that success and into a better grade here today. First run at Newcastle and expected to suit, while we get into this better race with just 8-3 - a very light weight. But overall more needed, so hard to get too excited until we see more consistency on the track.

Leo Minor 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
19:15, Newcastle

Been running okay in lesser races. But tall order as we are running 11lbs out of the handicap here so needs to improve, but the horse is well and in good shape so hoping for some experience and improvement with the first-time blinkers.

Giogiobbo 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
18:15, Newcastle

Yet to win a race for us since coming from the Nick Littmoden yard last summer. Has run well several times, mainly at Southwell, but we are trying a change of scenery here at Newcastle. Step up to 6f will be fine and has run okay here for his old yard. Dropped a pound and Jonathan's 5lb claim help, but really more needed based on recent runs.

Has been a frustrating horse as been runner up 6 times now from his 17 starts, but is still to win a race. Has had a wind op since struggling last time out at Wincanton back in November though so we'll be hoping that's helped on the track. Hard to fancy until we see more.

Diamond Brig  
Fri 5th Feb 2021
16:20, Chepstow

Delighted with his debut win for the yard at Uttoxeter back in November - up just 5lbs for that and should have more to come as we feel he had a bit more in the locker that day too. Has won on heavy ground in the past too but still needs to cope with it, but that applies to them all! This trip is ideal though and another good run on the cards if getting through the ground.

Lord Halifax    WINNER! winner

Place money collected for Charlie's horse.


Fri 5th Feb 2021
16:15, Newcastle

Lord Halifax seems to be back on track after a wind operation and I am looking forward to trying him over 10 furlongs on a galloping track. He is not short of speed and the drop in trip will be no problem. He is in good form and can go well today.

Durouyn 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
16:05, Catterick Bridge

Has crept up the handicap without winning a bit after two good placed runs. Into a conditional jockeys' race here with the useful Lorcan Williams booked to ride and that should give us an advantage too. Well after a month off and if running to a similar level to his last two runs should not be far away with small place claims. The Donald McCain runner - Donladd - looking the one to beat.

Just the one career win from 21 starts and has lost his way a bit after two good runs around this time last year. Had a small break since his last outing though and down a few more pounds and in grade help. But really, just be looking for some revival of form here and go from there.

Cafe Milano 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Long term maiden but remarkably consistent at this track. Not beaten far over 12f last time when not really getting home, this looks back in his comfort zone and no surprise to see him there with every chance. Badly needs a change of luck and top rider knows him well.

Western Climate  
Fri 5th Feb 2021
15:20, Chepstow

Won last time out at Warwick and that was probably even better too as made several mistakes during that race. Up 6lbs for that so more required here, plus is now 13lbs higher than when running second in this race 12 months ago - last year's winner - Holbacktheriver - runs again today too. Big weight is the negative in the ground, but seems in good form with himself since that last run and certainly can't be ruled out if in the same mood.

Cap St Vincent    WINNER! winner

Another good run from a Tim Vaughan horse on the day.


Fri 5th Feb 2021
14:50, Chepstow

One of two runners in the race for us and looks my better chance. Has come on for his return run at Wincanton back in November and been doing well at home, but is a horse that likes to run fresh too so the 2 1/2 month break is fine. Longer trip a plus and should be fine on the ground so not without a chance, but the Nicholls horse - Young Buck - does set a fair standard, so probably have to settle for a place at best.

Connard 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
14:50, Chepstow

First run for us after coming from the Arthur Moore yard in Ireland. Has shown a good level of form over there, without winning, and has settled in well. We'll find out more here today and this is the horse's first run on the track for almost a year so can also be expected to improve for this.

Dadsintrouble    WINNER! winner

Dead-heated for third.


Fri 5th Feb 2021
14:00, Catterick Bridge

Still enjoying his racing at the age of 11 and ran another decent race to be third at Haydock last time out. Same mark here but Charlie rides to claim 5lbs this time so slightly better off. Trip and ground are okay - stayed on well over a bit shorter last time. Each-way claims.

Exodela 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
14:00, Catterick

Exod'ela has been running well this season - he was only beaten 3 lengths in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham earlier, and was a good 2nd over 2m7 at Bangor the time before last. He was found for speed in the Lanzarote at Kempton on his latest start, so the step up to 3m1f here on softer ground should be more to his liking. He's off a competitive mark, and if things fall his way then he should be there or thereabouts.

If repeating his run the other day, when an easy winner of an AW bumpers race here, then should have every chance. Has come out of that race well and is a horse certainly going the right way. We know he handles the track and this trip - is taking on more flat types today, but Ryan booked to ride too, so everything in place for another big run.

Silver In Disguise    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Tim.


Fri 5th Feb 2021
13:30, Catterick Bridge

Former winning Pointer and only average runs so far, but first time into a handicap here today and that will help a lot. Should also benefit for jumping a fence here for the first time and won't mind the ground. We'll learn more re his mark today but should be a lot more competitive today and Charlie takes off a handy 5lbs too.

Kchou Du Pecos Aa

Been running fair races recently without troubling the judge over hurdles. Was running on well last time at Warwick (5th of 11) and dropped a few pounds for that helps and first run over fences here - this should be more his game. Should be more to come with just seven runs over hurdles and the switch to chasing and won't mind the ground. Knows his job and looks well at the moment. Open race though, so each-way claims granted a clear round.

Well handicapped these days and has won on this surface. Ran encouragingly for today's top rider on penultimate start and no surprise to see him back to winning ways here if things go well for him. Needs to get his confidence back.

Headley George 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

Slight encouragement on last start when looking like he might be worth a try over further. Similar low grade affair here and this backward horse might go well at a big price if things go smoothly for him.

Recuerdame

Mostly below best in recent efforts but is a course winner and tries a new trip here. Not a certain stayer but will give him many more options if it works, so worth a try.

Global Destination

After over a year off the track he made an adequate reintroduction at Newcastle where he travelled well and got very tired in the final couple of furlongs. He seems to be in good order at home and I am hopeful he has come on for the run. The ones to beat on paper are the Mike Murphy and Tony Carroll trained runners who both hold good form. He has drawn well in one and Daniel Muscutt takes the ride.

Jembug Drummer 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
16:15, Ffos Las

Dropped another 5lbs from his last run and is starting to look on a fair mark, but does need to translate that back to the track and over fences. Only third run chasing here and in fairness had an excuse last time at Bangor as lost a shoe. Is certainly better than what we've seen of late so with a small break no surprise to see him run better, but the big weight would be the concern in the ground.

Archimedes 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
16:00, Southwell

Been thereabouts in his races of late - was beaten just under 3 lengths last time here last week, but stumbled at the start so that wasn't a bad run considering. Into a 0-55 race here helps a bit and even though we've 2 3/4 lengths to find with Onebaba, who beat us last time, we feel with a good draw here (3) and a better chance, then can go well.

Victorias Peak 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:50, Wincanton

Nice recruit to the yard - came to us from the Fergal O'Brien team. Ran well in a bumper at Plumpton (2nd) during the middle of December and being a winning Pointer too is the most experienced runner in the field - that should help. Trip and heavy ground are fine and Charlie can take off 5lbs too with his claim. Always tricky races to call with a lot of unexposed sorts, but expected to go well with each-way claims.

Diddly Do    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect for the Jamie Snowden yard.


Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:50, Wincanton

Diddly Do ran well on debut to be 4th here on Boxing Day against the boys. She has improved for that run, and back here against her own sex, I think she looks to have the best form on offer. A reproduction of that would see her go close providing she handles the heavy ground. She is a big strong mare, so hopeful that she can run a big race here.

Robin Des Theatre 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:50, Wincanton

Looks a race with 4 or 5 decent chances, but we should be one of those. Former winning pointer that ran well at Ffos Las in a similar race back in November - just needed the run in the end and got a bit tired in the closing stages. Has had a wind op since and seems to have improved at home too for that so should be bang there today.

Madera Mist 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:42, Ffos Las

Hopefully another good chance for us on the day and looks one of our better on the day. Meant to run a few times recently but cancelled meetings have been against us. Good winner at Cheltenham in December in a decent mares' chase - up 8lbs for that looks fair enough, so more on her plate here and does have a lot more weight. But this is a drop in grade from last time and has done well since that last race. Ground is fine too, so we are hoping she's the won to beat.

Rollercoster 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:42, Ffos Las

Good winner at Bangor back in November, but failed to follow-up last time at Wetherby (hurdles) - seemed to lose her action and was eventually pulled-up. Chase debut here today though as that's always been the plan with her - schooled well and a former winning Pointer. Drop back in trip will be fine too - stays further than this - but the ground will certainly bring her stamina into play. Bit to prove to after that last run but we feel she'll make a better chaser and looking forward to seeing how she gets on today.

A Pint Of Bear 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:30, Southwell

Has already won twice here at Southwell and ran well behind a nice sort at Lingfield last time - beaten just 3/4 of a length. Drop in grade helps here and return to Southwell will suit. We are also off the same mark as last time and Jonathan can still claim his 5lbs claim. Should make another bold bid, but does look another hot little race, with recent winners Secret Handsheikh and Elusive Treat very much respected. 

Evas Oskar 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
15:10, Ffos Las

Fell last time out at Catterick, but was in the process of running a big race and still going well at the time. We've given him a month or so to get over that and seems well - has schooled okay since. Ground and trip are fine and is a nice chasing prospect for us. Always have to be a bit cautious with any horse coming off a fall, but if things in that dept hold up then small each-way chance for sure, but does look a decent novice chase for the grade.

Productive 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
14:55, Southwell

Has been disappointing for the yard and we have been struggling to find the key with him. We know he goes on the surface and is now very well handicapped but just needs to find some form again.

Thor De Cerisy 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
14:45, Wincanton

Returned from a wind operation last month with a fine third - beaten just 1/2 a length - at Leicester. We feel he probably would have won last time too as got a bit short of room in the closing stages and only just failed to get up. Heavy ground is fine and that run has brought him on again, but the big question mark here is the step up to 2m4f. We feel it's what he's been crying out for, but you never really know until you try in a race, but if lasting home should have every chance.

Seaston Spirit 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
14:10, Wincanton

Seaston Spirit has won both his races so far this season, a hurdle race at Ffos Las and then the Sussex National at Plumpton. He was pretty impressive on both occasions on his favoured heavy ground. Today is a more competitive race around a track that won’t play to his strengths but he’s desperate for another race and the ground will definitely suit him so he will take his chance en route to a tilt at the Midlands National.

Disappointing last time when he came second on hurdles debut at Plumpton. Hopefully he can put that run behind him today which should give him every chance.

Guguss Collonges 
Thu 4th Feb 2021

Nice horse - ran well last time.  First run off a break. A tough race today so best watched on this occasion.

Tinsmith 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
20:00, Kempton Park

Took a nasty fall on his hurdling debut and that looks to have affected his confidence over an obstacle. He ran well back on the flat and was second last time out. The handicapper has nudged him up a pound, but this track should suit him better. Not without a chance in a bad race!

Distingo 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
20:00, Kempton Park

Ran well at Lingfield last time out in a bumper race on the AW - just a head second to a horse that ran well there earlier this week to back up the form. Seems well at home after that and if running to that level again here should have every chance in a weak-looking race.

Scorched Earth 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
20:00, Kempton Park

Two miles & a different track will need to work the oracle! More than capable though, but just not putting his best foot forward theses days so hard to pass on anything more positive until we see more on the track.

Toro Dorado 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
18:30, Kempton Park

He ran well first up after a break and looked as if he got a little tired in the closing stages. He has come out of this race well and this looks a good option for him. The ones to beat on paper look to be the Richard Hughes and Mark Loughnane trained runners. He has drawn well in one and Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

Filles De Fleur 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
17:55, Kempton Park

Down a pound from last run when a fair 4th here. Slight step up in trip will help and Rhys rides to claim 7lbs this time, so a fair bit better off at the weights. Overall AW record isn't too bad with six top three finishes from 14 runs (1 win) and we've a good draw in 2. I'd say, a bit more needed, but certainly not without place claims.

Via Serendipity 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
17:25, Kempton Park

Is an absolute star! He loves the AW and has a very good record at Kempton. He has to carry plenty of weight today, but he's the class horse in the race and it will take a well-handicapped horse to beat him.

Saray Prince 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
16:55, Kempton Park

Is having his second run here in what looks a tough novice but he will gain more experience and will be worth following once he has run three times and then can run in handicaps.

Apollinaris 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
15:25, Lingfield Park

Won here over this trip at the start of the year and a shade unlucky in a similar race two weeks later. This is a bit stronger but well drawn (2) and has no weight so should be staying on strongly under good apprentice in Tyler Heard, who can also claim a handy 7lbs.

The Warrior 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Not won for a while (March 20) - 11 runs ago. But as a result has dropped to a handy mark that is 7lbs lower than his last victory. Trip and track are fine and drawn well in 5, but is generally a hold-up performer anyway so the draw not too much of a worry. We also help with Connor taking off 3lbs and is 2lbs lower than last time too. Will need the breaks in-running - coming from the back - and not always the most reliable, but certainly has the ability off this mark to win a race like this. Just depends if he's in the mood on the day!

Desert Marathon 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
14:20, Lingfield Park

Has been a bit unlucky on both her most recent starts and could have finished much closer. The step up to a mile should suit well and this race looks weaker than her two previous assignments - should go well.

Cordarosa 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
14:20, Lingfield Park

Going the right way, but only third career run here and a bit more needed on what we've seen so far. Will be one step nearer getting a handicap mark here today, plus will get some more much-needed experience. Then will be more competitive thereafter once into handicaps.

Speedy Choice 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
14:00, Warwick

Had a couple of nice runs pointing, and this is her first run for us. Ground probably not in her favour but as we keep getting balloted we have to make a start somewhere. Will definitely need a mark and today is all about an educational first run.

Subliminal 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
13:15, Lingfield Park

Regular here over this track and trip and having a good Winter, mostly under today's regular top rider. On a career high and needs further progress but at the peak of his powers and no surprise to see him involved under these conditions.

Caldwell 
Wed 3rd Feb 2021
12:55, Warwick

Fair flat performer that came to us from the Dermot Weld yard. Ran well on hurdles debut at Wetherby at the end of December (2nd), albeit well beaten, but the winner that day could turn out to be above average and that also came on heavy ground so today's conditions should be fine. Has come out of that last race well and will have more to offer. Does, however, look a race that will rest with the first three in the betting - Goodbye Stranger, Sage Advice and Cabot Cliffs - so just be happy with another solid run and get some more experience into him. Small e/w chance. 

De Bruyne Horse 
Tue 2nd Feb 2021
19:40, Southwell

Just 3/4 of a length behind Daafy last time out here over this trip and reoppose again. Has thrived since and in great shape. Gets in here on the same mark and no reason why he won't be in the mix again.

Duke Of Firenze    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w call from Dave.


Tue 2nd Feb 2021
18:40, Southwell

Ran a great race last time week here (2nd) - beaten just 1 1/2 lengths. We take on Mulzim, who beat us that day, again but we are 5lbs better off this time. Has come out of that race well and the bigger field will suit too. If backing that last run up then should not be far away again and looks the e/w value in the race based on his run behind the likely favourite here last time.

Samovar 
Tue 2nd Feb 2021
17:40, Southwell

Looks our best chance on the day. After a really busy spell last month has had a bit of time off to recoup. Is ready to go again and heads here in arguably the form of his life after two wins and a second from his last three runs. Up just another 3lbs here from his last win, but did it nicely that day and with Jonathan claiming 5lbs again then should not be far away again. Nick Vedder and Knowing Glance look the obvious threats.

False Id 
Tue 2nd Feb 2021
16:40, Southwell

Well drawn in stall 2 here and has been running well recently, winning three runs back here. 4lbs higher than that win, but George Rooke booked to ride so his 5lb claim will help a lot and gives him a much better chance. Trip and ground are fine and remain in good form at home. Each-way chance.

Best Tamayuz 
Tue 2nd Feb 2021
16:40, Southwell

10 year-old now and not won since Feb 18, but in his defence was off the track for almost 3 years. Returned last month and took a step forward last time out here over this trip to be a fair fifth. Down another 3lbs here and Jonathan rides again to take 5lbs off. 5lbs lower than last win and with the claim we are 10lbs better off, but is obviously no spring chicken either so this is probably his level these days. Still feel there is a race in him though and is well after that last run - seems to be going the right way again. However, draw 10 not ideal and makes life hard, so really just be happy with another step back in the right direction.

Catfish Row 
Tue 2nd Feb 2021
15:55, Newcastle

Fair run last time out in a similar race at Lingfield - the winner of that race, Supakalanistic, franked the form to run well (2nd) yesterday. Long Newcastle straight will suit, but looks a hot race with some big names in attendance so just be happy with another solid run before there are more jumping opportunities.

Doonbeg Farmer 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
19:40, Wolverhampton

First run for us and a hot little race. Settled in well here and we shall find out plenty today. A bit headstrong in his races and this trip could be on the short side. If he settles though off a strong pace he has a small e/w chance.

Red Poppy 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
19:10, Wolverhampton

Red Poppy was unsuited by making the running last time out so we will ride her more patiently this time and give her something to aim at. I am pretty sure she is still well handicapped and would be hopeful of a big run today.

Nawafeth 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
19:10, Wolverhampton

Second runner in this race for us. Nawafeth has been very disappointing on her first two starts for the yard but I definitely feel like we haven’t seen the real filly yet. She will be better going around a bend and I have put a crossed noseband and tongue tie on her to help her breathing. She is well drawn so will be positive on her and Hayley has ridden her at home so knows her well.

Scale Force    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gay.


Mon 1st Feb 2021
17:40, Wolverhampton

Ran a much better race last time out at Southwell - was in with every chance for much of that race and just got run out of things in the closing stages to be a length third. Back to Wolves here is fine and George Rooke booked to ride to claim 5lbs. Still only has the one career win from 24 runs, so a horse that has been placed more than winning, so based on that feel he's more of an e/w play here but in good order and should go well.

Dilly Rosa 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
16:40, Wolverhampton

Showed improvement last time - making the running until 2f out. She showed plenty of speed that day so the drop back to 6f should be ideal. She will probably struggle to beat a couple of these on the ratings, but she has no weight with George Rooke's claim, so will hopefully run well and will then qualify for handicaps.

Gyspy Boy 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
16:40, Wolverhampton

Yet to win a race from 8 runs and well down the field last time on first run back after being gelded. That came over 7f and rook a bit of a hold that day so the drop back to 6f here will help as they will go quicker. George's claim helps, but really a fair bit to prove at the moment so not really a betting option, on a plus though has run well the twice he's raced here at Wolves so that gives us some hope for an improved showing.

Jersey Wonder 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
16:20, Lingfield Park

Jersey Wonder ran in one of these type of races two weeks ago and finished a creditable third, the winner that day - Supakalanistic - was impressive and he re opposes today, with our horse being 6lbs better off. Only beaten 1 1/2 lengths that day so in theory should not be a lot in it this time. Jersey Wonder had decent staying flat form before joining us too and he seemed to really enjoy his recent outing on the all weather where he was able to dictate from the front. Another open race, but must have another decent e/w chance.
Touchthesoul 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
16:20, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us and has a squeak too. First run back after a wind op but is well for that and we are hopeful that will improve him now. Has run well on the AW here in the past too and with Jamie riding has e/w claims.

Albert Van Ornum 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
16:20, Lingfield Park

Only second run for us so we are still learning about the horse. Down the field on debut for the yard at Newbury, but has won on good ground in France so the AW could suit. Light weight and could easily run better than odds suggest. Small e/w.

Sashenka 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
15:50, Lingfield Park

Fair flat performer that has done well since going hurdling with us - second both times. Did bled from the nose last time too when runner-up at Catterick so a small word of caution, but seems well at home now. Into a NH Flat race here as limited races at the moment over the sticks, but she's run well here on the flat so that experience will be a big plus. Her overall AW record is very good - 9 runs and 7 top three finishes (3 wins). The Henderson and Wadham runners respected but feel we come here with a leading chance providing there are no bleeding issues again. 

Ar Mest 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

One of the weaker looking races on the day here at Lingfield, so that helps and should have every chance based on that. Fit and well, plus ran a fair race at Plumpton last time out (3rd). First try on an AW surface in a race, but acts well on better ground on the turf so no reason why it won't suit.

Hit The Rocks 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
14:15, Lingfield Park

Another that has been running below-par recently, but another that we also feel that it could be down to the ground. Could run better than odds suggest and small e/w chance.

Deebaj 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Probably one of by better chances on the day. Won his last two over hurdles at Fontwell and Lingfield - those came with plenty of give, but has won on the AW too here at Lingfield so the track is fine. In good order at home and is a horse that often runs well fresh so the 2 month break is not a concern.

Zamperini 
Mon 1st Feb 2021
13:15, Lingfield Park

Been running poorly of late over the sticks, but is certainly better than that and with the last two runs coming on heavy ground we are hoping it's been that. Has better form on quicker ground over hurdles so the AW will suit and has won at Wolverhampton on the AW back on his flat days. Josh rides and even though a bit to prove feel we can hopefully see a better showing today.

Timely Gift 
Sun 31st Jan 2021
15:00, Catterick

Olivers Pursuit 
Sun 31st Jan 2021
13:40, Wolverhampton

Can ignore last run as in the end didn't enjoy the Fibresand at Southwell - back here at Wolverhampton will suit after winning his last two here and only 3lbs higher than last success last month. George knows the horse well and can claim 7lbs again and we've a decent draw in 3. Another step forward needed in a tough race, with recent winners - Pholas and Universal Effect - the obvious ones, but at a track he likes and if finding a bit more improvement then small e/w chance.

Leading Ewe On 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
16:25, Doncaster

Is a nicely-bred individual, who ran well enough to be fourth on her racecourse debut in November. She looked a bit green that day, but stayed on well. She should have improved for that though, but this looks a competitive race so a placed effort would be great and go from there.

Agamemmon 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
15:50, Doncaster

Did well at the end of 2019 but as a result shot up the ratings and has struggled a bit since. Is coming back down and is now only a pound higher than last winning mark. Acts well on the soft and stays a bit further than this 3m trip, which will help in the conditions. Paddy Brennan takes over in the saddle, but has won on him in the past too. Open race, each-way chance.

Golden Force 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Golden Force continues to improve as I have worked out what his ideal conditions are. A sharp mile really plays to his strengths and that is what we have got today. Decent field but should have a good chance.

Pirate King    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner this month - top call from Charlie.


Sat 30th Jan 2021
14:55, Lingfield Park

I was disappointed with Pirate king last week but that was a hot race and possibly not run to suit. This looks weaker and providing he has got over that run, he should take a bit of beating this afternoon in a race he also won last year!

Cosmelli 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
14:00, Kempton

Tough race with some useful stayers in, but should find this a bit easier than last time. That said, this is still a competitive contest and we are still a few pounds higher than last win. Stays this 2m trip well though and seems in good order at home so must have small e/w claims, but is a tough race.

Silver Bubble  
Sat 30th Jan 2021
13:10, Lingfield Park

Down the field on debut at Leicester on the turf last October. We've taken our time with her since and having AW debut here today. Step up in trip here will help and didn't really enjoy the heavy ground the last day. Will gain more experience here though and one step nearer to getting a handicap mark.

Piranhadrama 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
13:10, Lingfield Park

Is having her third run so will then have a handicap mark - she had a wind operation since last run and will be worth following when running in a handicap.

Corri Lindo 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
12:55, Doncaster

Up 4lbs for his recent win at Leicester so more needed but is well after another small break. Trip and ground hold no issues and should run his race again, but would probably need a career-best off this mark so it remains to be seen if he can find some improvement at the age of 11. The unexposed Sunset West looks the one to beat.

Blue Beret 
Sat 30th Jan 2021
12:35, Lingfield Park

Backward type of filly who ran ok in two starts last year. Will likely do better in handicaps and probably wants further. Galloped round here well last week

Maxine    WINNER! winner

Another third for Harry's horse!


Fri 29th Jan 2021
18:45, Wolverhampton

Been third on her last three starts - twice here at Wolves. Up just a pound and a nice draw in 1 would give her a similar chance to last time and the useful Dylan Hogan a plus for this apprentice contest. Each-way.

Star Dreamer 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
17:45, Wolverhampton

Star Dreamer ran well at Newcastle last time out getting outpaced before staying on nicely to the line. Step up in trip should suit, and she is well balanced so would like to think she would have no problem with Wolverhampton.

Avantgardist 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
16:17, Doncaster

Ran a good race two runs back at Ludlow - when looking set to be in frame (or just out) until getting hampered by a faller. But ran flat last time out at Hereford over a shorter trip, so the return to 3m here is a plus. Down a few more pounds and James Davies takes over in the saddle - knows the horse best. Not the most reliable, but off this mark looking dangerous especially if the first-time cheekpieces help him focus too. Small each-way chance.

Three Ways 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
16:17, Doncaster

Three Ways has some good back form to his name, but has struggled to recapture that form after a long absence. However, form is temporary and class is permanent and the handicapper is giving him a chance now. He needs to recapture some form, but I have no doubt he will at some stage this spring.

Connetable 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
16:17, Doncaster

A small step in the right direction last time and if he can build on that he could have place claims, but not one to rely on.

Cafe Milano 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Consistent enough, particularly at this track but a long standing maiden. Ran well enough last start and no surprise to see him involved again. Needs to get his confidence badly but has enough ability to win a race like this.

Galactic Spirit 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
16:05, Lingfield Park

Disappointing last summer. Gives away ground at the start. Has ability but may need to come down lower in the handicap to trigger a change in direction.

Walk In The Wild 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
15:10, Doncaster

Even though Walk In The Wild finished fourth in his first race, a bumper at Hereford, I was slightly disappointed with the way he ran. He hung very badly left and he didn’t really finish his race, nothing came to light post race so I have to ignore it and carry on. He is a big rangy horse who is still pretty backward but he shows me enough at home to hope his first race was a blip, his schooling was initially very good before becoming flippant so he had a short educational jumping spell with Laura Collett. Laura did a good job of getting him to concentrate more on his jumping and he has schooled well at home since then. I’m unsure of the ground today, he has a round action to suggest he wants softer conditions but it’s a case of whether he is strong enough at this stage.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gay.


Fri 29th Jan 2021
14:25, Lingfield Park

Just touched off here last time out by a short head by Smokeey, who runs again too. But still a top run and just a pound higher. George carries on in the saddle and claims 7lbs again, so with another nice draw in 2 then looks to have another decent e/w chance, but a tough and open race with many chances.

Chitra 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
14:25, Lingfield Park

Last run before she heads to the sales, the draw could have been kinder but if anywhere near her best should be competitive at this level.

The Big Bite 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
14:05, Doncaster

Nice little race and one that we feel we've got a leading chance in. A lovely chaser that came to us from the Tom George yard and delighted that he won on debut for us at Aintree back in November. We've taken our time with him since, but is a horse that likes to run fresh, so the 3 month break isn't too much of a worry. Up another 5lbs here looks fair, but is a proven course winner too and the ground will be fine. Probably got Ibleo to beat, but is very well and should run a nice race.

Up For Parol

Up For Parol is a full brother to a dual bumper winner, and he is out of an unraced daughter of the Grade 1 stayer, Refinement. Up For Parol bolted up in an Irish Point in November, and got a pretty high rating. He seems an uncomplicated horse, who jumps well, and stays well. This looks a competitive maiden hurdle and he'd have to run to a mark of 135 to win this, which will be a tough ask on his racecourse debut, but he is a lovely horse who will have a bright future. 

Gypsy Boy 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
13:20, Lingfield Park

Claiming Stakes race here and a lot to find on the ratings. George's 7lb will help on that score and we feel the blinkers will help. Has also run one of his better races here over this course and distance so that gives us hope, but probably not a race to get too involved in.

Diable De Sivola 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
13:00, Doncaster

Been disappointing of late but as a result is dropping down the ratings and certainly looking well-handicapped. Drop back in trip may help and eased slightly in ground too. Seems well after a small break and even though he does need to bounce back, not without an e/w squeak.

Cherokee Bill 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
13:00, Doncaster

Yet to win from 20 races and not getting any younger at 10 years-old. Down another 3lbs here though and only third run for the yard after coming from the Noel Meade camp in Ireland. Longer trip today should help and well at home, but really just be happy with an improved effort and go from there.

Boma Green 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
18:00, Newcastle

Boma Green has been very frustrating to train as he is considerably better than he has shown on the track. We were too aggressive on him last time out and he didn’t face the visor so we have change to cheekpieces and will ride him more patiently. Hopefully we finally find the key today.

Gossip 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
16:25, Southwell

Ran well for much of the way last time out here in a slightly better race. Dropped a pound for that and Jonathan back on to claim 5lbs so much beeter off this time. Acts well on the track and likes the surface - a lot of the others seem to have a similar chance though, so probably only each-way claims.

Scale Force 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
16:25, Southwell

CD winner that is starting to look well-handicapped, but isn't an easy horse to win with - just the one win from 23 starts. Acts well at the track and here on the fibresand and heads here in decent form after a fair 4th at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago. Looks an open race for the grade, so place claims, but our better chance on the day from our two runners.

Leo Minor 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
16:25, Southwell

Running just okay at the moment so does need to step up a bit on previous runs. Well drawn though in stall 1 and in great shape. Mollie Phillips rides to claim 7lbs too and we are trying both the tongue-tie and cheekpieces this time. Could surprise.

Inch Perfect 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
16:15, Meydan

Perfect Inch is very consistent but also very quirky. She is the sort of horse that run the same race in a class 1 or class 6. Conditions in Dubai will be absolutely perfect and she loves quick ground and a bend. She couldn’t have taken the journey any better but this is a decent race and she needs to take another step forward.

Thu 28th Jan 2021

Ran a massive race in a conditions race at Newcastle - running off a good mark this time and remains in good shape. Should take all the beating. 

Giogiobbo 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
15:55, Southwell

Ran below-par here on Tuesday, but in this better race we've 10lbs less to carry. Luke takes over in the saddle and a fair draw in 3. Does need to put that last run behind him but remains well at home and certainly be no shock to see him bounce back to form with just four rivals.

Bells Of Peterboro    WINNER! winner

Great win for Tim.


Thu 28th Jan 2021
15:35, Fakenham

Ran well on his return at Huntingdon last month (4th) - the winner that day, Zhiguli, has since franked the form by winning again since and we've given him a nice break to get over that last run. Won't be easy with 12st to carry, but the tight track will help and is after all the top-rated in the field. Each-way chance.

Rafiot    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy win for Gary's horse and another nice TQ View winner this week.


Thu 28th Jan 2021
15:20, Southwell

Probably best chance of the day if acting on the surface - which it is thought he should improve for.

First run for the stable. Been going quite well at home. Small e/w chance.

Bond Angel 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
14:15, Southwell

Had three runs for us but an experienced mare that will be having her 42nd outing here. Recent runs have come over 7f, but back up to 1m today. Has won over this course and distance, so the longer trip is fine. We are, however, up in grade here so despite the lighter weight would probably need to find a bit more.

The Flying Sofa 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
13:55, Fakenham

First run of the season. Every chance but might just benefit from this first run.

Money Honey 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
13:40, Southwell

Still learning. Only run came here last time out over 7f and ran well for around 5f of that race but didn't last home. Therefore, no surprise she's being dropped back in trip here and a light weight helps. But likely to need more time and experience - The Dods horse looks the obvious one.

Lady Quickstep  
Wed 27th Jan 2021
19:50, Kempton Park

Won well on her return last time out at Wolverhampton. Had been working well but is was still a small surprise after the lay-off, but wasn't badly treated. Carries a 5lb penalty for that win here and up in grade but did it nicely that day and has come out of that race in good order too. Still looks well-treated on old form too as rated 80 last June and George helps by taking 7lbs off too. Should go well again. 

Oud Metha Bridge 
Wed 27th Jan 2021
18:50, Kempton Park

Won well last time over CD at the end of November - he is best with time between his races, hence the 2 month break. This looks an ideal race for him and is quite winnable. He is in great form

Vivency    WINNER! winner

Just got home for the Lee Carter team.


Wed 27th Jan 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

Going the right way after three solid runs - including last time out at Kempton when a close second to a nice looking horse. Into a handicap for the first time today on what looks a fair mark. Nice draw in 1 too and Danny Muscutt, who has ridden her on all her races, remains in the saddle. Probably got the Watson runner to beat - Perfect Rose - but feel we head here with a cracking chance.

Raha 
Wed 27th Jan 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

Ran a pleasing race last time after a break - she has come out of that race very well and couldn't be in better form. She should have a good each-way chance at a nice price - just depends if Lee's Vivency is the unexposed dark horse in the race.

Parikarma    WINNER! winner

Nice third from Ed's horse.


Wed 27th Jan 2021
17:15, Kempton Park

She has been in good form at home since her disappointing come back at Chelmsford and I am confident of an improved performance. Like all fillies handicaps it looks quite a trappy race with Archie Watson’s and Lee Carter’s horses the most prominent in the betting. She has drawn well in two and will hopefully be able to gain a handy position. Cieren Fallon takes the ride.

Outrage    WINNER! winner

Got up to take this for Daniel and Claire Kubler.


Wed 27th Jan 2021
15:35, Lingfield Park

Outrage has been second on his last three starts including over course and distance and really deserves to win, bit quick back but a small field so worth taking our chance in a small field and he has backed up to win quickly in the past.

River Sprite 
Wed 27th Jan 2021
12:40, Lingfield Park

River Sprite ran well over course and distance two starts ago and ran well again at Chelmsford last time when not really getting the run of the race, finishing well having been left too much to do. Seems suited by ten furlongs.

Visibility 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
17:10, Wolverhampton

Won well here two runs back but failed to add to that win last time, when fifth off a 5lb higher mark. Had a big weight last time in that easier grade and that was probably his downfall. Back up in class here so less of a burden on his back and a fair draw in 5 helps. No shock to see him bounce back but looks a nice e/w option in a race with many chances.

Asgoodasitgets 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
15:55, Southwell

Only second career run - down the field on debut here over 7f last month. More required on that and work in progress, but the step up to a mile will help and will at least gain some more experience here too.

False Id 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
14:55, Southwell

Good winner two runs back here, but ran way too wide around the bend last time and lost all chance - was carried that way. Carries a 4lbs penalty for his win this time so needs to find more, but is certainly better than that last run and with a bit more luck in-running can hold a decent e/w chance.

May The Sixth 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
13:55, Southwell

A close third here last to a fair sort at this level - Nick Vedder. Same rating here but Jonathan booked to ride this time so his 5lb claim a big help. This will also only be his eighth career run so still learning, but looks to hold a big chance here if running to the same level as last time.

Archimedes 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
13:55, Southwell

Can ignore the last run as came just a day after running well here. Had a week off since and back up to 6f here will be fine. Top draw in 1 too as likes to get on with things - remains in good shape and should go well and looks a nice e/w option in an open affair.

Giogiobbo 
Tue 26th Jan 2021
13:25, Southwell

Not beaten far here last week (3rd) - just getting run out of things in the closing stages. Same mark and Jonathan rides again to claim 5lbs. A bit more required in this better grade though, but in good form still and should make a bold bid. Each-way claims, but only 2 places up for grabs.

Duke Of Firenze    WINNER! winner

Returned to form from Dave's horse.


Tue 26th Jan 2021
13:25, Southwell

A legend of a horse but ran a bit of an ordinary race last time out here. Up slightly in grade here so a bit less weight to carry and now only a pound higher than his last win, which came over this course and distance and in this grade. Remains in good shape at home and well-treated so in these sprint races could easily return to form if in the mood.

Prince Percy 
Mon 25th Jan 2021
20:15, Kempton Park

Likely to be my biggest-priced runner on the day, but that's not to say he's not without a squeak. Was last seen over hurdles at Newbury last month (pulled-up) but was struck into that day so had an excuse. Had time to get over that and returns on the flat here to try and get some confidence into him. Seems well at home and 3lbs lower than when last seen on the level - small e/w chance.

Productive 
Mon 25th Jan 2021
19:45, Kempton Park

Has been disappointing since we have had him but looked better when fitted with the blinkers last time. Dylan Hogan has suggested we step him up in trip, so we are trying 1m4f here and if that is the answer then we hope for improvement in a weak race.

Golden Dragon 
Mon 25th Jan 2021
18:45, Kempton Park

Golden Dragon really surprised me at Kempton last time out because I was expecting him to be keen and difficult when in reality he barely picked up the bridle. As a result we have decided to step up in trip and we will be more aggressive on him. His work is good and he definitely has decent ability but his confident is rock bottom. Hopefully today suits and he can show his true form.

Darkest Day    WINNER! winner

Another solid placed run.

 


Mon 25th Jan 2021
16:20, Plumpton

Still not quite sure how this horse didn't win last time here - travelled really well into the race and looked to have things in control, only to run out of steam in the final stages. Blinkers were on that day and are on again here as they clearly helped - up a pound is fair enough and seems to have come out of that last race well so another good run on the cards and hopefully he can see it out a tiny bit better this time.

Note Bleu    WINNER! winner

Double on the day for Gary and another top TQ View winner too.


Mon 25th Jan 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Course winner that should hold every chance. Solid second here last time out over this trip when slightly hampered that day too. With a bit more luck in-running should be knocking at the door again. Tom Queally rides.

Right Hand Of God 
Mon 25th Jan 2021
15:50, Plumpton

Another race with probably about 5 leading chances, but we are certainly one of those. Down a few pounds from his last run here (5th), but ran a bit free that day and used up too much energy. Is still learning - only had 6 runs - and will need to settle better than last time, but has the ability to win races for sure and is also over fences for the first time here - we think that will help. Schools well too and if that holds up in race conditions then another today we feel could run well.

Zhiguli    WINNER! winner

Easy win and another TQ View winner this month.


Mon 25th Jan 2021
15:20, Plumpton

Has done well recently - winning at Huntingdon and then running second behind a fair sort at Taunton last time and had a big weight that day too. Didn't get the best of runs last time too so we feel could have go closer and we also think this step up to 3m1f here will bring out more improvement. Niall helps by taking off 6lbs and knows the horse well (has won on him before), so in this better race we get in with a lighter weight and if getting the trip looks the one to beat. I think this is one of my best chances on the day.

Cheque En Blanc 
Mon 25th Jan 2021
14:50, Plumpton

Course winner here that is back in grade from last time and dropped a pound too. Ran well to be 5th in the Sussex National here last time over a bit further, but will be fine back in trip a tad. Soft ground is okay too and if running to the same level as last time should be in the mix.

Mon 25th Jan 2021
13:40, Chelmsford

Yet to win a race from 8 runs, but  this is a poor race into a Classified Stakes and we come here as the joint top-rated in the field. Hasn't quite been seeing out the 1m trip at Southwell on the fibresand the last twice, so the drop back to 7f here will suit. A fair draw in 5 helps too and George helps again in the saddle by taking off 7lbs. We are also trying the cheekpieces for the first time to see if they eke out a bit more improvement. Overall, still have a bit to prove at the moment and this looks competitive for the grade, but being a low-grade affair you probably can't rule out any of them - it's one of those races!!

A Pint Of Bear 
Sun 24th Jan 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

Been in top form at Southwell this season and was last seen winning easily by 3 lengths there at the end of December. All runs to date have been on the fibresand so today will be a different test and he's also up in grade here. Just two other runners, but both are in-form too, so should be an interesting affair. The ratings and weights, with Jonathan's 5lb claim, suggest we are not without a chance, but he'll need to have improved from his last run. That said, a nice pot up for grabs and a small field certainly warrant him running and we feel there should be more to come from him.

Top winner here over this course and distance last time out - took us a bit by surprise but we knew she was going the right way. Up 8lbs for that here though so more on her plate and this looks a slightly better race, but did it well last time to suggest a repeat of that run would see her go close. Luke, who was on last time, another plus in the saddle.

Zankala 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
16:40, Newcastle

She looked like she wanted further last start on handicap debut and has subsequently been dropped into a more competitive grade. The race looks a nice option for her. We have taken the visors off as we felt they didn't aid her last time out at Kempton. I am hopeful of a stronger performance from her. Callum Shepherd takes the ride.

Oriental Cross 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
16:00, Taunton

Back to last winning mark so has a chance based on that, but has not sparkled in two runs yet this season. Has had a nice break since, as the last of those runs came in November - is well for the time off. Will enjoy the softer ground too and not without an e/w squeak if bouncing back to form.

Full Of Roque 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
15:25, Taunton

Second runner in the race for us and another with a fair chance - again, mainly because this is such a bad race. Yet to win from 7 runs under rules, but lightly-raced and has had a wind op since last time. Trip and ground are fine, so also can't be ruled out in a race that probably shouldn't be a betting one.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
15:25, Taunton

Very poor race gives us a chance and is down to a mark of 99 here - 4lbs lower than last time on the track. Shorter trip here will suit as wanted to go quicker last time and didn't last home as a result. Charlie also helps to claim 5lbs and despite having top-weight here, the average nature of the race and off this much lower mark then place claims.

Brummie Boys is a tall, unfurnished horse who has been a bit disappointing so far this season but he’s had niggly issues so I would forgive him. I’ve been desperate to step him up to this trip but was I was worried he wouldn’t be strong enough to cope. He has no weight today, he will love the ground and I remain hopeful he build on last season’s efforts.

Botox Has 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:50, Ascot

Down the field here last time in a competitive race, but the ground should be more to his liking here today and we feel he'll benefit from the step up in trip here. Has a month off too freshen up too and in what looks a very open race with a lot of chances feel he's not without a chance at a nice price. Each-way

Detatched 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:35, Taunton

Good winner two runs back at Uttoxeter - albeit in a poor race - but failed to improve for the step up in trip last time at Catterick. Therefore, the drop back in distance will help here. Also sports the first-time cheekpieces here as we think they will help him settle and Millie takes a handy 7lbs off his back. Only 4lbs higher than that last win, so if back to that level - albeit in a slightly higher grade - then could be the e/w value.

Lill Smith 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:35, Taunton

Only third run for us after coming over from the Noel Meade yard in Ireland. Needs more confidence and not shown up much so far so we'll need to see more on the track really before passing on anything with more confidence.

Nada To Prada 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:30, Haydock

Nice mare that is certainly going the right way - winning her last two, including here over 2m3f last time out. Back in trip will be fine in the conditions and that proven course form will be a plus. Goes without saying more needed up in grade again here, but deserves to take her chance in this better company and we feel she's improved again since her last run. Should make a bold bid and hopefully she can continue her rise up the ranks.

Anythingforlove 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:30, Haydock

Anythingforlove was unbeaten in two bumpers last season, and has won two of her three hurdle starts this season. Her only defeat came when a stirrup came off the saddle on her hurdling debut. She steps up in class here in the search for some 'Black type'. This is a tough race, but she'll handle the ground and this sister to a Gold Cup winner is very unexposed and it remains to be seen where her limitations lie.

Galactic Power 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:05, Taunton

Little horse in great form at home - 11 years-old now, but still loving racing. Based on last run (2nd at Ludlow) should have a good chance (been balloted out about 50 times since then!), hence the small break. Would prefer a bit further in trip, but having to take what we can get with him at the moment. A real yard favourite and should go well with Lorcan Murtagh taking off a handy 3lbs. Each-way.

Thats Me 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
13:05, Taunton

Not shown much to date, but into a handicap here for the first time and that will help. We also feel the step up in trip slightly will help and should be okay in the ground. Hopeful of better and small e/w claims.

Tenfold 
Sat 23rd Jan 2021
12:40, Ascot

Another flat runner that's having it's debut over hurdles. But likely to need the experience here so best watched until he gets a few runs under his belt over the sticks. 

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Nice debut run over hurdles - one to note.


Sat 23rd Jan 2021
12:40, Ascot

Fair flat runner that is having his debut over hurdles here today. Jumps well at home and loking forward to seeing how he gets on over the sticks. Hard race to assess with a lot of newcomers - like us - over hurdles, but certainly my best of the two runners and not without an e/w chance if his jumping holds out.

Fri 22nd Jan 2021
18:15, Chelmsford

Nice recruit to the yard, being a 100+ rated sprinter at his peak. Had his issues and been off the track a while and also first run for us, so expected to learn a bit more about the horse and also will probably need this after his time off. Jonathan rides to take off 5lbs, so that helps and draw 1 a plus. But still only 6 years-old and only third run on the AW too. Is also a proven CD winner here so that's one of the reasons for coming here so delighted to get going with him.

Toro Dorado 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

He has been in good form at home after spending a short time out to help freshen him up. The race looks competitive and the Michael Appleby and Simon and Ed Crisford trained horses look the ones to beat judging by the market. He has drawn well in 4 and Callum Shepherd takes the ride. 

Ajax Tavern 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Fair flat horse when with Richard Hannon - rated in the 80's. Still finding his feet over hurdles though when down the field last time out at Musselburgh. Back on the level here to try and get some confidence back into him. Is also a past course winner here (7f), but this is his first try over 1m2f. We'll learn more here and George Rooke's 5lb claim helps, but really just be happy with a top half finish and build from there.

Moveonup 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

Fair bit to prove at the moment after some average runs. Is back down to his last winning mark though and George takes off 7lbs from his back helps. Decent draw in 3 helps but based on recent runs would be happy with an improved run - the in-form Stuart Williams runner - Passional - is the one to beat.

Professor Galant 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
14:05, Lingfield Park

7-race maiden but has not been far away several times, including last time out at Southwell when second. First run here at Lingfield but expected to suit and been handed a nice draw in 2. George also riding again to claim 7lbs and in an open race looks to have a fair e/w chance.

Bungledupinblue    WINNER! winner

Top call from James and another nice TQ View winner too!


Fri 22nd Jan 2021
14:05, Lingfield Park

Seems in good heart and a likeable filly who seems to take her racing well. Good runs last twice in decent company and the step back up to 6f a plus. Draw could have been better, but should give a good account off a workable mark.

Shattered Glass 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
13:55, Musselburgh

Needed the run last time out at Catterick (5th) after almost a year off and first run back from a wind op. Is better for that outing and down 5lbs here makes life easier. Still lightly-raced and only 10st 8lbs to carry helps in what's likely to be soft ground. Each-way chance.

Hunters Step 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
13:00, Lingfield Park

Delighted with his debut run for us when a close second here - up just 3lbs for that and George rides to claim 7lbs so that offsets the rise. Nice draw in 1 too helps and has done well at home since. No reason, if building on that last run, he shouldn't have leading claims here today.

Chica Del Dia 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
13:00, Lingfield Park

Steady but moderate progress in last couple of starts and has a small race in her. Could easily go well at a big price and could improve once she gets her confidence.

Headley George 
Fri 22nd Jan 2021
13:00, Lingfield Park

Backward type and just glimmers of ability on the track but is the type to do better in time. Not disgraced in a similar race before Christmas and might have a place chance if he has come on again.

18:00, Newcastle

Global Destination is making a return to the track after 448 days off it having suffered a setback last year. He has been in good form at home and I am looking forward to running this horse again. It looks a nice option for him to start off the campaign and I am hopeful he will run a nice race. He has drawn well in three and Dan Muscutt takes the ride. 

Royal Heart 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
17:30, Newcastle

He has run two very promising races and looks to be improving with each start. The drop back in trip I feel will suit him and the ones to beat on paper out the Roger Varian trained newcomer Malhoob and the Andrew Balding trained Abrag who has run well in two competitive maidens. He has drawn well in four and Dan Muscutt takes the ride.

Midnight Centurion 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
16:10, Ludlow

Midnight Centurion ran well to be 2nd on his racecourse debut on good to soft ground at Southwell in November. He should certainly have improved for that experience and has the ability to win a bumper this season. He should be able to handle the heavy ground here, and I'd like to think he can go close again. He has the best bumper form on offer but he takes on a highly regarded horse from the Irish Pointing field.

Going the right way - having won his last two. Had a small break as ideally been waiting for better ground, but at the moment that doesn't look like happening so forced to run a bit. Has won on soft in the past, but we just think he's slightly better on a good surface. That said, he's very well and been freshened up for the break and should still have a decent e/w chance at a course he's won at before.

Outsider of the four here and despite getting weight all round here we think he'd need a few of the others to have an off day after some poor runs of late. On a plus, is 4lbs lower here than last time, but need to see a return to form on the track really.
