Charlie Fellowes
Red Poppy 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
18:00, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 8.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 27(Betfair Exc)

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.

Henry Oliver
Killaro Boy 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:40, Leicester
DEC Odds: 5.1(Betfair Exc)

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 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:00, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 5.1(Betfair Exc)

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.

Gay Kelleway
Cosmelli 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
16:00, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

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.

Michael Scudamore
Mr Chua 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:30, Catterick
DEC Odds: 4(Betfair Exc)

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.

Tim Vaughan
Blunder Buss 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
15:30, Catterick
DEC Odds: 13.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 10.5(Betfair Exc)

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.

Designer Destiny 
Tue 2nd Mar 2021
13:30, Catterick
DEC Odds: 20(Betfair Exc)

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.

Daniel & Claire Kubler
Secret Acquisition 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
16:50, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 25(Betfair Exc)

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.

Gary Moore
Flaminger 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
14:40, Plumpton
DEC Odds: 3.85(Betfair Exc)

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.

Ray's The One  
Mon 1st Mar 2021
14:05, Plumpton

Dorking Lad 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
14:05, Plumpton
DEC Odds: 1.89(Betfair Exc)

Hijran 
Mon 1st Mar 2021
13:30, Plumpton
DEC Odds: 48(Betfair Exc)

Natural History    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Gary's horse.


Mon 1st Mar 2021
13:30, Plumpton
DEC Odds: 1.96(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 11.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 7.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 7.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 18.5(Betfair Exc)

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 
Sun 28th Feb 2021
15:40, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 130(Betfair Exc)

Tough ask on rules debut for this former Pointer. Likely to be better once handicapped.

Generous Day    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Henry.


Sun 28th Feb 2021
15:20, Hereford
DEC Odds: 4.7(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 9.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

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.

Simon Dow
Headley George 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:30, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 2.76(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 10.5(Betfair Exc)

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.

James Evans
Kentucky Kingdom    WINNER! winner

Easy win for this James Evans runner.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 5.9(Betfair Exc)

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.

Julia Feilden
Engrave 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
20:00, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 42(Betfair Exc)

Desert Marathon 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
19:30, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 9.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 65(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 100(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 7.4(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 5.7(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 19(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 7.8(Betfair Exc)

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.

Jamie Snowden
Sandaroc 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:45, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 3.15(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 3.55(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 8.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 3.5(Betfair Exc)

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.

David C Griffiths
Ornate 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
14:05, Lingfield Park
DEC Odds: 15(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 2.9(Betfair Exc)

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.....

Lee Carter
Enough Already    WINNER! winner

Nice 14/1 winner for Lee.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

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.

Ed Dunlop
Toro Dorado    WINNER! winner

Only just missed out - one to note next time.


Sat 27th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park
DEC Odds: 9.4(Betfair Exc)

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 
Sat 27th Feb 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park
DEC Odds: 230(Betfair Exc)

Scott Dixon
Shackabooah 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
20:15, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 8.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 9.8(Betfair Exc)

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.

Harry Dunlop
Maketh Believeth 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 32(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 5.7(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 8.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 5.8(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 15(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 8.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 11.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 24(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 25(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 18(Betfair Exc)

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.

Robin Dickin
Speedy Choice 
Fri 26th Feb 2021
14:10, Warwick
DEC Odds: 240(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 7.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 15(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 15.5(Betfair Exc)

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

DEC Odds: 36(Betfair Exc)

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.

DEC Odds: 6.2(Betfair Exc)

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!

DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

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

DEC Odds: 6.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 15.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 2.88(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 6.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 4.8(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 4.7(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 46(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

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.

Oliver Sherwood
Minella Royale 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
16:15, Ludlow
DEC Odds: 6.8(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 36(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 65(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 29(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 3.65(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 6.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 8.2(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 12(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 2.3(Betfair Exc)

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 
Wed 24th Feb 2021
12:30, Southwell
DEC Odds: 20(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 6.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 9.6(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 15.5(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 38(Betfair Exc)

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
DEC Odds: 26(Betfair Exc)

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.

Suzy Smith
Invicta Lake 
Tue 23rd Feb 2021
12:30, Taunton
DEC Odds: 16.5(Betfair Exc)

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.

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.

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.

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

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 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
16:50, Sandown

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.

Robin's Dream 
Thu 18th Feb 2021
15:40, Sandown

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Twasnt The Plan

16:20, Chepstow

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.

Madera Mist

Electron Bleu 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
15:50, Chepstow

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.

Isle Of Aron

Well backed and another easy TQ View winner this month.

 


Fri 5th Feb 2021
13:40, Lingfield Park

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 
Fri 5th Feb 2021
13:30, Catterick

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 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
19:00, Chelmsford

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 
Thu 4th Feb 2021
17:00, Chelmsford

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.

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.

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 
Fri 29th Jan 2021
13:32, Doncaster

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.

Madera Mist 
Thu 28th Jan 2021
16:05, Fakenham

Ornate    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win for Dave's horse.


Thu 28th Jan 2021
15:55, Southwell

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Global Destination 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
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.

Gleno 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
15:50, Wincanton

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.

Rosie And Millie

Kloud Gate 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
15:20, Wincanton

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.

Legends Ryde 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
14:40, Ludlow

Legends Ryde was a highly progressive mare last season. She won a bumper, was 2nd in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham, and won a novice hurdle. She was all set to contest the Grade 2 EBF Final but racing stopped due to the pandemic.  Unfortunately, she's not hit the ground running this season, and she's had a couple of blips including when found to be in atrial fibrillation after her latest run. We've given her time to get over that, and now we've stepped her up in trip on this her handicap debut. We hope she's back and can be competitive here.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
14:30, Lingfield Park

Still a maiden but has been unlucky a couple of times, particularly here last start over 6f. More time for things to pan out today and should be bang there if she gets luck and things fall better for her.

Eragon De Chanay 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
13:50, Wincanton

Hopeful of a good run over this longer trip. Has been running as if the step up to 3m will suit - stayed on well over 2m4f last time at Wincanton in a good race. The winner has since franked that form too and he's also a course winner here at Wincanton.

Subliminal 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

Having another great Winter over track and trip and ridden by top jockey who has been so successful with him. Up in grade slightly and creeping up the handicap but dangerous to discount in the form that he is in.

Filles De Fleur 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
13:30, Lingfield Park

Solid second here last time out - only up a pound for that and Tom Queally takes over in the saddle. Slight rise in grade but we are not too worried about that and in a tight little race should have every chance.

Fix Bayonets 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
13:20, Wincanton

Still learning the game and will be better once getting a handicap mark.

Rafiot 
Thu 21st Jan 2021
12:30, Lingfield Park

CD winner here and should have every chance having won well here last month. Up 3lbs for that though and I think it's a slightly better race so even though the likely favourite I think he's got some decent challengers. That said, is fit and well at home, loves the track and should not be far away. Rhys rides and is able to claim 7lbs this time (claimed 3lbs last time), so that helps with the rise in the ratings.

Archimedes 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
19:30, Southwell

Just touched off here last night in a tight finish. Has come out of that race well and seems fine this morning. Takes his racing well and is back for more today. Drop back to 5f will help and the same mark and jockey today. Running into form and should go well again.

Leo Minor 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
19:00, Southwell

In good form at the moment - had excuses last time as got baulked at the start and was also short of room in the closing stages. Sporting the visor for the first time here as we feel it will help him focus. Looks a slightly easier and ordinary race too, so feel he'll not be far away. Each-way.

False Id 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
18:30, Southwell

Top winner at the weekend over this course and distance. Into a Classified Stakes race here but travelled well the last day during the race and has come out of that contest well. Looks a harder event, with the other two CD winners in the field - Van Dijk and Crazy Spin - feared the most, but in great order and if repeating that last effort would have a big chance of following up.

Engrave 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
18:00, Southwell

Ran well on Fibresand debut last time (3rd) and looked like she will be suited by a step up to 1m4f. She remains in good form at home so we would hope she has every chance of winning again. Dylan rides again and takes off a handy 3lbs too.

Scorched Earth 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
18:00, Southwell

Down the field at Wolves last time out - down 4lbs here helps, but we need to see a return to form on the track really before being more confident.

Cold Shoulder 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
16:20, Chepstow

Got a bit tired last time out at Southwell so the slight drop in trip here will help and has had a wind operation since his last run. Also down 3lbs here from that last run and won't mind the softer ground. His dropping mark will start to look dangerous soon and seems well at home. In what looks a poor race feel he's not without e/w claims here.

Sparkling River 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
15:50, Chepstow

11 year-old now and a fair bit to prove at the moment after a string of below-par runs. Switched to us from the Henry Oliver and then Claire Dyson yards, so first run for us. Also first run since a wind operation so we'll learn a lot more here, but on a plus is returning on a nice mark compared to her old form - last win came off 15lbs higher, but really we'd just be happy at his age that she showed some improved form to give us a sign on where to go next with her.

Hit The Rocks 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
14:30, Newbury

Ran okay last time at Lingfield in a NH Flat race, but is back on the turf here today. Only his fourth run over hurdles so still learning and will need to prove himself on the heavy ground. Therefore, I'd just be happy with a step forward here and build from that.

Zamperini 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
14:30, Newbury

Not had much racing of late - had a few issues. Returned last time at Sandown to blow away the cobwebs (pulled up) but is only a pound lower here. Niall's 7lb claim will help in the ground though, but with this only being his second run back from a long time off then just be happy with a step in the right direction.

Lady In Hiding 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
14:00, Newbury

Lady In Hiding showed a good level of form in three bumpers all on soft or heavy ground the season before last but a variety of problems have kept her off the track for 14 months. She has done plenty of schooling and while she can be slightly deliberate I don't think that is too much of a fault. While she will be fine on the ground it's a big ask to expect her to be competitive after so long off.

Feodora 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
14:00, Newbury

Feodora didn't run too badly here on similar testing ground to today's on her seasonal reappearance and was entitled to get tired in the closing stages. She will be a big outsider again today but she is going well at home and is a real galloper, who will probably need further. She will do better once able to run in handicaps.

Editeur Du Gite 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
13:35, Chepstow

Has won on heavy ground in France, but today is likely to be a lot worse than that! Therefore, the conditions are a bit of a worry, but the horse is well at home and has run some solid races in defeat this season. Does also look an average race with only three rivals and we' think we've just the one to beat - Le Cameleon - so despite the ground hoping we'd still have every chance.

Masterdream 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
13:05, Chepstow

Not shown much from two runs for us since coming over from Ireland, but will get a handicap mark after today and will be been in a better light going forward. Be a shock if one of the top three in the market isn't taking this.

Robins Dream    WINNER! winner

Nice effort from Gary's horse - giving the hot favourite a race.


Wed 20th Jan 2021
12:55, Newbury

Second runner in the race for us and probably our better chance. Ran a good race on debut at Plumpton when 5th of 12 and wasn't beaten far that day. Most of us are likely to be playing for places behind the hot Henderson favourite, but with a bit of improvement then not without place claims.

Il Re Di Nessuno 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
12:55, Newbury

Has improved for his last run at Kempton as that came off a hefty lay-off, so better expected today, but going to be a tall order to beat the Henderson runner so really just be happy with a solid run and go from there.

Karlie 
Wed 20th Jan 2021
12:15, Newcastle

Impressive winner of a NH Flat race at Taunton back in October and ran well in a mares' listed race at Huntingdon last time out. Big drop in grade from that last outing would suggest we've got a leading chance here. Should be fine on the AW too as acts well on a quicker surface on the grass. Should be bang there, with the Skelton and Boanas runners to beat and it won't be easy having to give 7lbs away to them both, but hoping with more recent runs than her two main rivals then that will prove the difference. Should go close.

Archimedes    WINNER! winner

Just failed -  but still a nice e/w return.


Tue 19th Jan 2021
19:10, Southwell

Ran a top race last time when a running on second here to a horse that looks ahead of the handicapper. Normally comes good around this time of the year and was well clear of the third the last day. Nick Vedder probably the one to beat, but that won was beaten as a short favourite on Sunday so that gives us all hope - we look the value in the race.

May The Sixth 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
19:10, Southwell

Only win has come at Wolves, but has run some fair races here at Southwell and acts well enough on the surface here. Down another 3lbs here helps and Luke Morris is back riding. She's also been staying on well over 5f so this step up to 6f for the first time in her career can hopefully eke out some more improvement.

Shackabooah 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
19:10, Southwell

Ran here on Sunday in a much better race. Dropped a pound and Jonathan takes off 5lbs so we are 6lbs better off here. Also dropped two grades here will help. Only had 4 career runs so certainly a horse that will have more to come, so be happy with an improved effort here.

Been a bit stretched over 1m of late so the drop back to 7f here will help. Also down 3lbs from his last run and we are mixing the headgear up with the first-time visor. CD winner here too and feel he can be a lot more dangerous over this distance as last win came off an 9lb higher mark too. Each-way chance.

Opportunist 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
17:10, Southwell

Not seen for almost a year so can be expected to come on for this. First run for us too - another that's come to us from the Martyn Meade yard. Settled in well and shown a fair level of form, but only had two career runs so we'll find our feet with him here more, especially as he's trying this 1m4f trip for the first time.

Soros 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
17:10, Southwell

Had some issues physically, hence such a late start to life as a racehorse. He has done plenty of work and is ready for a run. However, the surface would be a big unknown. If he handles it then he should make a nice debut.

Gossip 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
16:40, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and hard to split my two - if getting the breaks they'd both have chances. This one was a good winner two runs ago, but fluffed the start last time and was never able to recover. Also got a bit worked up before the race that day so the writing was on the wall a bit. Seems okay at home now, so hoping it was just one of those days as certainly capable in a race like this. Probably like to see her run first though before being more confident after what happened last time, but as I say, if bringing her A-game, then should be thereabouts.

Giogiobbo    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run from Scott's horse.


Tue 19th Jan 2021
16:40, Southwell

Super competitive race. Was a close second here over this trip two runs back but was slowly away here last time so lost all chance. Down another grade here helps and should have a fair chance again, but the Meehan and Appleby runners are respected and we'll will need to break better!

Duke Of Firenze 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
16:40, Southwell

Still going strong at 12 years-old and was a bit unlucky last time not to get closer after not getting the best of runs. Was still only beaten 4 1/2 lengths though and being dropped a pound and with a bit more luck in-running would certainly have an each-way chance here in a very open race that could probably be run several times and have a different winner each time!

Pleasing return run at Hexham last month when fourth of 14. Dropped a pound for that and has certainly come on at home for that outing. Soft ground and this 3m trip is ideal and should enjoy the track today. Looks competitive for the grade, with the in-form Ballybreen feared, but would have a definite each-way chance in an open affair.

Down another 5lbs in the ratings helps as does the ease in grade, but hard to fancy until we see more on the track and the horse gets a few runs under his belt.

Bembridge 
Tue 19th Jan 2021
14:15, Exeter

Bembridge is a big backward baby who has run perfectly well in his two races to date without troubling the judge. He looked very much a galloper on both occasions and probably found both tracks sharp enough for him over 2m. He is a horse who won’t be seen at his best until he goes chasing over a trip but I do want him to show enough for his owner to warrant perseverance, hopefully today’s course will be more suitable for this big striding gelding.

Another gutsy win for this Gary Moore runner.

Won a Point in good fashion in 2018, but has been off the track a long time after finishing mid-division in a bumper for Emma Lavelle. She jumps well, but is a bit highly-strung. If she settled into a rhythm then she'd have a chance of seeing out her race. It's not a great contest either, so hopefully she can finish in the top 4 or 5 and then after she's bound to improve.

Bounced back to form with a nice win here over this CD last time out - carries a 5lb penalty for that, but a nice draw in 3 helps again and we feel there should still be more to come with only 9 career runs and that last outing coming off a 2 month break. Open affair but looks to be one of the leading players and if running to the level of last time should be in the thick of things.

Carnwennan 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
18:10, Wolverhampton

Seems to be right back to his best now and last times performance wouldn't have been fat off a career best. He loves the tapeta, but has to prove that he can be just as effective on this tight track. The race looks tough but he shouldn't be far away.

Cosmelli 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
18:10, Wolverhampton

Went close at Newcastle last time out in a handicap over 2m - much harder here into a conditions race with a fair bit to find with some of these on these terms. But the horse is well and at least he's one of the proven distance winners in the line-up, so staying the trip will be fine. Will probably need a few of the main players to run below par but he's well and should run a solid race.

Lady Quickstep    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gay.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
17:10, Wolverhampton

Returns from a long break so will improve for this, but has been doing plenty of work at home and is certainly starting to look well-handicapped off 67, considering she started her handicap career off 80. George takes off 7lbs too and draw 1 is a big bonus too. Certainly can't rule out in this grade for this AW debut, but with the 6 month break probably one to note with a run or two under her belt.

Gently Spoken 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
17:10, Wolverhampton

Down the field here last time out over 7f - getting tired in the closing stages. Therefore, hopeful the drop back to 6f will suit and we are a pound lower. But overall we need to see more on the track really before being more confident.

Isayalittleprayer    WINNER! winner

Another placed finish for Gary's team on the day.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
15:55, Lingfield Park

The Henderson horse sets the standard, but another of ours here that is not without a say. Yet to win a race but has run well here on the AW over 1m4f in the past (close 2nd) so the track and surface is fine. With this being another race that seems to lack depth, we must have a decent each-way chance - anything else a plus.

Saturn n Silk 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
15:25, Lingfield Park

Looks our better chance on the day -yet to win over hurdles from three runs, but has experience in these races too (3 runs), and wasn't far away at Fakenham last time out. One of the more experienced runners in the field should help us too and despite this being her AW debut acts well on a quicker surface on the grass so can't see any reason why it won't suit. Probably have the Gifford and Baker runners to beat, but should not be far away.

Royaume Uni    WINNER! winner

Well backed and the third winner in the card for Moore!


Mon 18th Jan 2021
15:25, Lingfield Park

Nice horse that we like. Ran well over hurdles in a fair race last time out at Kempton and still improving all the time with just two career runs. If taking to the AW surface then we feel he's got a very good chance here and should not be far away.

Jumping Cats    WINNER! winner

Top win to defy the penalty and another on the day for Gary Moore.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Nice winner here in a similar race earlier this month - track and trip are fine and has come out of that race well. Only negative would be the penalty he's got for winning that last race and has to give weight away to all the others which won't be easy.

Darebin 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
14:20, Lingfield Park

A race that lacks depth so could sneak a place. Second runner in the race for us and looks our second string, but has a good record in the AW in his younger days - 6 runs and four top three finishes, including a win here over 1m4f (Feb 17). Small Each-way chance

Imphal 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
14:20, Lingfield Park

Former useful flat performer for the Marcus Tregoning yard. Not sparkled over hurdles yet, but only had three runs over the sticks. Will like the return to a flat race and has won here over 2m on the level in the past. Skelton horse to beat, but feel we come here with a big chance and looks one of my best on the day.

Jersey Wonder    WINNER! winner

Decent run from Oliver's horse.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Jersey Wonder ran perfectly well on his debut over hurdles at Taunton when finishing fourth. We have been waiting for some half decent ground for him to run back over hurdles again since, but this seemed to good an opportunity to miss. He had decent flat form over two miles on the flat when trained by Jamie Osborne, he has run on the all weather many times and he seems to cope with the surface.

Distingo    WINNER! winner

Just failed to get up.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Goes without saying the first four in the betting look to hold the best chance here, but of those at a bigger price Distingo could be the value. Has won on the AW when trained in France so the surface here will be fine and was only 5 lengths behind the Twiston-Davies runner here over hurdles at Kempton in November. Each-way claims.

Catfish Row 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Former Andre Fabre flat horse that was trained in France. Debut run for us at Newbury last time out but was well down the field. Will gain more experience here in this NH Flat race and her proven flat speed will help here, but likely to be better for us once getting a handicap mark.

Esprit De Somoza    WINNER! winner

A much improved run from Gary's horse.


Mon 18th Jan 2021
13:15, Lingfield Park

Pulled up last time at Wincanton so more needed on that - first run on an AW surface here too so probably best watched here.

Espion De Saflo 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
13:15, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us and a similar chance to our other runner. Well down the field in recent runs and first run on an AW track. Much more needed so hard to fancy on what we've seen. The Skelton horse looks the obvious call.

Datsalrightgino 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
12:45, Lingfield Park

Datsalrightgino is a nice horse. He showed real ability on debut on good ground when too green and was 3rd. He stepped up on that to be 2nd last time out on deep ground, but had a bit too much ground to make up. He is certainly up to winning a bumper and shouldn’t be far away with luck in-running.

Rose Ohara 
Mon 18th Jan 2021
12:15, Lingfield Park

Rose O'Hara is from a decent family, and she showed clear promise when 4th on her debut in a bumper at Ludlow. She raced wide and was held up, when the first three home all raced near the front and down the inside, so the effort has to be upgraded. She should have improved for the experience too, so she comes into this race with every chance of opening her account.

Bond Angel 
Sun 17th Jan 2021
16:05, Southwell

Much better run last time out here, when a close second over this trip to Al Suil Eile, who we meet again too. Same mark here, but slight ease in grade helps. Drawn 1 is ideal and Jonathan claims 5lbs again. Bigger weight to carry in this easier race, but has come out of that last race well and another bold bid from the front on the cards - looks a nice e/w option in a race that we might all be playing for places behind the in-form Nick Vedder.

Shackabooah 
Sun 17th Jan 2021
15:35, Southwell

Nice draw in 3 and ran well here at the track when last seen back in August over 5f. The step up to 6f should be fine and first time in a handicap here will make life easier for him. Not been out for 4 1/2 months though, so regardless can be expected to improve for this, but certainly one to watch going forward.

False Id    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Dave.


Sun 17th Jan 2021
15:05, Southwell

In fine shape having been running over longer recently. Drop back to 1m will be fine and the smaller field should suit too. A nice draw in 1 helps too so not without place claims, but the hat-trick-seeking Maykir and the Roger Fell runner - Dramatista - look the ones to beat.

Mukha Magic 
Sun 17th Jan 2021
14:35, Southwell

Acts well here on the fibresand and certainly looking well-handicapped based on last run here at the track (Oct 20), when a good second off a 7lb higher mark. Ran okay last time at Wolves too (3rd), so been knocking on the door of late. However, the in-form Notation sets the standard and will be hard to beat, but we are not without a chance if the favourite has an off-day and/or Hollie Doyle can work some magic in the saddle.

Headland 
Sun 17th Jan 2021
14:05, Southwell

Won here two runs back, but failed to follow-up on that here in the week. But fluffed the start last time so lost all chance and, therefore, had an excuse. Up in grade here too, so more needed, but on a plus we get in here with just 8-5 in weight so that helps. Luke Morris takes over in the saddle and if able to get away on terms this time, then off this low weight not without a chance of bouncing back to form, but probably has a bit to prove at this higher level.

Waltzing 
Sun 17th Jan 2021
13:35, Southwell

Showed a good level of form when with the Martyn Meade yard from his three runs. First run for us here so we'll find out more, but has settled in well and shows up nicely at home. Jonathan can claim 5lbs too and that will help. Should run well and not be far away, but the Johnston horse - Ghost Rider - might be hard to topple.

Driftwood    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Sun 17th Jan 2021
13:35, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and a similar chance to our other entry. Looks like we've got the Johnston horse - Ghost Rider - to beat but this one is the most experienced in the field and we hope that counts for something. A nice third last time out here too over 6f - should improve for the step up to 7f and have come on for that last run too as it came off a 2 month break. Should be thereabouts.

Smokey Malone    WINNER! winner

Top run from Julia's horse.


Sun 17th Jan 2021
13:05, Southwell

Improved with blinkers on handicap debut last time out, but was too keen in a slowly run race. They will go quicker here so he will settle and if they work a second time will have a good each-way chance at a nice price.

Agent of Fortune 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
19:50, Kempton Park

Course winner here, but has rather lost her way a bit recently after a purple patch last year. Creeping down the handicap again helps but recent runs have been below-par so really need to see some return to form on the track to be more confident.

Raha 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
19:50, Kempton Park

Is a big filly and we have always thought a lot of her - she has probably only just matured. She has also had a break but should be fit enough to do herself justice. But whatever she does here, she will improve next time out.

Lady of Aran 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
19:20, Kempton Park

Has been below par recently but htere have been numerous excuses. Today's conditions are much more like it as she loves the track and 7f is perfect. Georgia rides her beautifully too so hopefully we will see the real filly today.

Sherpa Trail 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
18:50, Kempton Park

Makes his debut for us here in a competitive handicap. Has settled in well but very lightly-raced and that tells its own story. Seems a great type but doubtless needs to get his confidence and we will know more about him after today.

Durdle Door    WINNER! winner

Top winner and another nice TQ View success for Gary and the team.


Sat 16th Jan 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

Probably our best chance on the day. Just the three career runs and going the right way. Was a decent second at Lingfield last time out over this 7f trip and we've a good draw in 1 here too. The Clive Cox horse is probably the one to beat and the Ed Walker runner is respected too, but feel with a bit more improvement we've a solid e/w chance here.

Apollinaris 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
14:35, Lingfield Park

Off the mark here in a similar race and up 3lbs accordingly. Only scrambled home so will have to do more but didn't have the clearest of runs last time so entitled to have a great chance if things go well for him.

Trixie Waterbury 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
14:35, Lingfield Park

We've got around 4 lengths to find with the Dow runner - Apollinaris, who beat us here last time. Down 3lbs for that helps so hopeful we can get closer this time and still only had 4 career runs so more to come. Draw 14 not ideal though, so will need the breaks to come from there, but small e/w chance if getting some luck in-running with Luke Morris riding.

Fitz Well 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
14:25, Warwick

Ran well at Hereford two starts ago and has shown ability, but still learning. Hot race so goes without saying on what we've seen so far a lot more improvement needed here. But will gain a lot of experience here and will be a step nearer getting a handicap mark after this - will be a lot more competitive then.

Glen Mooar 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
14:25, Warwick

Second runner in the race for us and a similar chance to our other runner. Tough race so in at the deepend a bit here but will learn a lot and at least get a mark after today.

Quarry Beach 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
14:00, Lingfield Park

Ran a good race last time at Wolverhampton to be 5th (10). Same mark here but up from 7f to 1m, which we feel will be fine, but will need to improve for the step up in trip. Ease in grade a plus though, but as a result does have more weight to carry. That said, the easier opposition will help. We've also a decent draw in 1, so that should help getting a nice position in the race. Does, however, look a very open race so each-way claims only with the trip a slight unknown.

Connetable 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
13:30, Market Rasen

Poor displays the last twice and a frustrating character. Has his own ideas now, but does have ability so backing him does come with risks. If he decides it's a 'going day' he could figure but, as I say, not really a sensible betting option.

Corazon Espinado 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
13:25, Lingfield Park

Won easily and back to form in a much weaker race here last Saturday over 7f. Has won here over the mile and good claimer who rode him last week takes off a much needed 7lbs. Will need close to a career best but can't be overlooked whilst he is in good order.

Generous Day 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
13:15, Warwick

Generous Day won this race in 2019, but we are rated 8lbs higher this time so more needed. Another of ours that ran well for much of the way last time at Ludlow (3rd), just getting tired in the final few furlongs. Similar race here so we get in with a lightweight (10-0), which will help in the soft ground. But we are also having to run 3lbs out of the handicap so a bit to find and taking on some improving sorts in the shape of Sky Pirate and Amoola Gold - should run well, but a hot little race so a place might be the best we can hope for.

Cordarosa 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:50, Lingfield Park

Fair debut run at Chelmsford last month over 7f. Has done well since and we feel the step up to a mile here will suit. George helps her too by taking off a handy 5lbs. Be happy with another solid run and we'll be another step nearer getting a handicap mark here. The Haggas, Gosden, Tate and Walker horses should really be fighting this out.

Detatched 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:40, Warwick

Kchou Du Pecos Aa 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:40, Warwick

Only runner in the race for us now with Detached now a NR, but would have a small e/w chance. Took a step forward last time out at Wetherby when 6th of 11 - just getting tired in the closing stages after running well for much of the way. Dropped 4lbs for that helps, so with a bit more improvement can hopefully take a step in the right direction again here.

Black Kalarosa 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:40, Warwick

Lightly-raced mare still, with just 6 career runs. Dropped another 5lbs from last time out after being pulled up at Leicester, while we are trying her with the cheekpieces today. Overall, more required. Heavy ground wasn't ideal last time and we'll see how the ground is today as a lot of rain etc - if conditions are heavy then may not even run.

Agamemmon 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:20, Market Rasen

Pulled up at Chepstow the last day but that came over a trip a bit on the short side and also off a long break. Has improved for that and this step back up to 3m will help. Brian Hughes knows the horse well too - has won on him before - so his booking helps and is also a proven CD winner here so that's one of the reasons for heading to Market Rasen. Only 4lbs higher than last win, so no shock to see him run better than last time here. Place chance.

Caltex    WINNER! winner

Placed for the Scudamore yard.


Sat 16th Jan 2021
12:20, Market Rasen

Did well at the start of last year for us but lost his way a bit after that. We decided to give him a wind op recently so this is his first run back since then. Will love the ground and trip should be within range too. We'll learn more after this but hopeful the wind op has helped him and seems well for it. If running to the level that saw him win easily at Leicester last Feb, then would have a decent e/w chance.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Each-way run from Simon's horse.


Sat 16th Jan 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

A long term maiden with some fair form to his name, the best of which is arguably here and over this distance. Needs to get his confidence but enters calculations and seems in great shape after a short break.

Stormingin 
Sat 16th Jan 2021
11:45, Lingfield Park

Hard horse to catch right, just the two wins from 44 runs. Down the field last time out, but overal is fairly consistent. But inexperienced rider here today and wide draw in 12 not ideal which is going to make life hard.

Gossip 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
19:00, Southwell

Looking one of our better chances on the day. Head winner here last time out over this trip - beating Red Stripes, who goes against us again here. The third - Leo Minor - is also in the race so might not be a lot between us again. On a plus, we escape a penalty for that win as it came in an apprentice race. Another bold bid on the cards.

Leo Minor 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
19:00, Southwell

Seems to be running into form after a much-improved third here last time out. Meets the two that finished just ahead of him - Red Stripes and Gossip - again but with another step forward we feel he can get a lot nearer this time and hopefully reverse that form. Each-way

Cobh Kid 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
18:30, Southwell

Only had two career runs but took a big step forward last time out here over this 5f, when a fair second. Similar race here and Jonathan rides to claim 5lbs again so with a bit more improvement can go well. Only niggle is that he raced a bit free last time so will need to save a bit this time and settle better, but if he can then make his presence felt and be delighted if we can nick a place as the Bryan Smart runner - Unleash - might be hard to topple.

Archimedes    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second and looks one to note next time - running into form.


Fri 15th Jan 2021
18:00, Southwell

Another of mine that ran much better last time out when third here on Sunday. Same mark and same grade here and usually comes good around this time of the year. Draw 11 not totally ideal, but is in good shape and should be in the thick of things. Each-way price.

Money Honey 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
17:30, Southwell

Nice filly, that is having her debut on the track here today so will learn plenty. Shows plenty of pace at home and we feel the surface and track will suit - likely to be better for the experience but also feel she won't disgrace and no surprise if she ran well, with Luke a big help in the saddle.

Headland 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
17:00, Southwell

Finally showed the promise we thought he was capable of at this sort of level when winning here last time out. Has certainly come out of that race well and battled on well that day to beat the hot favourite, with the first two pulling 4 lengths clear of the rest. Up 2lbs here and also up in grade so will find this harder but should be full of confidence now after that first win on the fibresand so must have e/w claims, but the Fahey horse - Star Of St James - could be ahead of the handicapper based on it's recent win.

Habanero Star 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
16:30, Southwell

Not been far away in her races but is still to get her head in front from 7 runs. Ran another respectable race here last time out over this trip, but much better off this time - has been dropped 4lbs and we've got George Bass riding to claim another 7lbs. Nice draw in 1 too, so looks to have one of her best chances to date of getting something. Each-way price.

Best Tamayuz 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
16:30, Southwell

CD winner here but has had his problems of late. Returned from just under 3 years off on New Year's Day here but well back and understandably needed the run. Has come on for that and is 3lbs lower here, plus in a slightly weaker race (0-52). Well in on old form so can't rule out but 10 years-old now so we need to see some old sparkle on the track before being more confident.

Nawafeth 
Fri 15th Jan 2021
14:40, Newcastle

Not suited by the steady early tempo at Wolverhampton last time out, so this more galloping track, where they tend to go an even tempo, should suit much better. She is a nice filly and ahead of her mark but there are five horses in this race that won last time out so it won't be easy for her.

Bolt N Brown 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
19:30, Chelmsford

Back on the flat after some runs over the sticks. Fit and well as a result and returns here in what looks a very average race. Stays further so we'll try and make use of that and Luke an obvious plus in the saddle. Should have a small e/w chance in a race that seems to rest between 5 or 6 of the 9 runners.

River Sprite 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
18:30, Chelmsford

River Sprite 4lbs well in following a career best run when stepped up to this distance last week at Lingfield, hasn't enjoyed much luck at this venue in the past, main concern is that this is back quite quick and she isn't always consistent.

Lady Dauphin 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
18:30, Chelmsford

Lady Dauphin had shown promise on her first couple of starts of the yard, but was disappointing last time out at Newcastle without any apparent excuse. Drops into a lower grade and if firing should be competitive.

Vanity Affair    WINNER! winner

Top call from Charlie - second at 25/1!


Thu 14th Jan 2021
18:00, Chelmsford

Lingfield was always going to be a worrying track for this horse last time out - especially if he ran green like he did on debut. And so it transpired! This will be much more suitable today and the step up in trip should be fine. Life gets easier in handicaps after this third run. Really, it's hard to see beyond the Varian horse winning this.

Maazel 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
17:30, Chelmsford

Needed the run last time out after 320 days off. Has come out of that well and into this 0-50 race should be a lot easier for him in terms of the opposition. Down 2lbs from that run too and a fair draw in 5 here helps. Each-way chance.

Mont Kiara 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
16:55, Chelmsford

Not the force of old but well worth a try back here over 7f. Seems as bold as ever but not had much luck in recent outings and yet again drawn in the car park. Nevertheless, could easily go well at a big price in such a weak race.

Chain Smoker 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
15:30, Fontwell Park

Course winner last year over a slightly shorter trip. Blew away the cobwebs last time out at Plumpton after a break and if in the same vein as when running here before, should have every chance.

Sandaroc    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but a nice e/w return still at 28/1!


Thu 14th Jan 2021
15:20, Bangor

Sandaroc won an English point bumper on her debut, but disappointed on rules debut when she travelled into the race well but hung out badly to her left and was unrideable! We've done her wind since, and rectified a few little issues, and over hurdles today, we should see a better performance. However, the favourite looks unbeatable here, so a placed run would be an ideal result on her hurdling debut.

Representing Bob 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
13:50, Bangor

Representing Bob is a nice young horse, but is still very immature and the penny hasn't dropped with him yet. A nice clear round should see him in the top four, but he's not the finished article yet, and will improve for this hurdling introduction.

Neff    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gary's horse.


Thu 14th Jan 2021
13:30, Fontwell Park

CD winner here at the track. Down the field in a better race last time so this ease in grade will help, plus, significant drop in the handicap (5lbs, plus Niall can claim 7lbs too) - which hopefully will see him being much more competitive and hopefully back to winnng ways. Handles soft/heavy ground.

Hard To Forget 
Thu 14th Jan 2021
13:20, Bangor

Made a few mistakes the last day and they took their toll in the end. We've given him a month off since and should be more at home in this slight ease in grade. Down a few pounds from last time too and Lorcan Williams booked to ride so his 3lb claim is an added bonus too. Ground okay too and not with an each-way chance in an open race.

Course winner that improved last year to win three of his last 4 races. First run after a break and 5lbs higher now. But seems well and if not needing it too much, should have every chance.

Ivaquestion    WINNER! winner

Decent run from Simon's horse.


Wed 13th Jan 2021
20:20, Kempton Park

Threatens to stay this far and was a winner here over shorter. Worth a try and has plenty of ability so no surprise to see him thereabouts if he gets the trip and gets a strong pace to aim at.

Vivency    WINNER! winner

Great call from Lee.


Wed 13th Jan 2021
18:50, Kempton Park

We've probably all got the Andrew Balding runner - Melody Of Life - to beat, but we are certainly not without a chance. Only had two runs for us, but the last of those was a big step forward when a close third at Wolverhampton over this trip. Fair draw in 4 and we've given her around 6 weeks to get over that. Seems to have improved at home since and Danny Muscutt, who rode her the last twice, an obvious plus in the saddle. Feel we've got a solid e/w chance.

Recuerdame 
Wed 13th Jan 2021

Star Of Screen has been disappointing on the racetrack, so I have reached for the headgear today. She has worked well in them at home and is well handicapped if she puts it all in.

Little Gem 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
16:15, Kempton Park

I was shocked with how low they rated little Gem. A mark of 38 seems very generous but it also means she is out of the handicap and technically is running off 46. She might want further in time but she was one of the last off the bridle last time out so I am happy to stick at 6 for the moment.

Darkest Day    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run from Gary's horse.


Wed 13th Jan 2021
16:00, Plumpton

Disappointing so far this season, hence the blinkers on this time but still looks like he has got one to beat in the favourite. Hoping for better and e/w chance if the blinkers can improve him.

High Up In The Air    WINNER! winner

Looks a rapidly-improving chaser for the Moore yard.


Wed 13th Jan 2021
15:30, Plumpton

Fairly easy winner last time here over a slightly longer trip. Goes on the ground, acts on the track. If it wasn't for the big weight we'd be more confident but doing a lot right at the moment and should have every chance still with the slight drop back in trip a plus in conditions.

Some Finish 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
15:10, Leicester

Certainly in his twilight years now, but has had a wind op after a problem in running last time. From so far out of the handicap we are not expecting him to trouble the judge but hope to see him running on at the end, although it sometimes takes more than one run for a horse to have the confidence to know that they can actually breathe properly.

Tractor Fred 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
15:00, Plumpton

Tractor Fred has some good placed form over fences, but hasn't got his head in front yet. The handicapper is giving him a chance now, and back over hurdles at a track he seems to enjoy, he would have a good each-way chance.

Thor De Cerisy    WINNER! winner

Plugged on well to take third.


Wed 13th Jan 2021
14:40, Leicester

Pleasing return run at Wetherby (3rd) back in December. That came off a break and has since had a wind op as seemed to get tired quickly the last day. A combination of that op and needing that run are reasons to suggest he can improve for it. Soft/Heavy ground is fine too. Each-way chance.

Red Mix 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
14:40, Leicester

First run for the stable so probably best-watched on this occasion.

Weststreet 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
14:30, Plumpton

Weststreet finished fourth on his only completed run this season at Bangor, it was over an inadequate trip (3m) but the ground was his favoured soft and there were no other opportunities for him at that time. He is a thorough stayer who usually jumps well, he would prefer as much rain as possible to turn this into a proper slog otherwise the track over this trip might be on the sharp side for him. Overall, looking at the race, we'd have a small e/w chance, but only 7 runners and the top three in the betting might be hard to keep out of the frame.
Northern Beau 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
14:10, Leicester

Lovely mare that has done well for us. Course winner here and won't mind the ground and the trip, but this Listed race - despite only three other rivals - is a hot little race and we've a fair bit to find on these terms. We are rated 123 and all the others are rated between 140-142! Likes to lead though and you never now as the others still have to jump round, but really going to be a tall order to win.

Natural History 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
13:30, Plumpton

Decent flat form when with Andrew Balding and used to be owned by the Queen - rated in the high 90's. First run over hurdles today and first run for us too. If taking to it on the track, surely must have a very strong chance. Has handled soft/heavy on the flat too.

Twenty Twenty 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
13:10, Leicester

Won at Plumpton last time out in a strange race that the main pair both fell/unseated. Tougher ask today as up 7lbs for that too and a lot of weight 12st. But Tom rides again and can claim 5lbs so that helps and he jumped very well on his first occasion and surely must have every chance again here. Each-way.

Cilaos Glace 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
13:10, Leicester

Cilaos ran well on his seasonal debut when finishing second at Wetherby in October. He jumped right on occasions for no apparent reason but his jumping was basically good, and he was entitled to get a little tired on the run in after a seven month break since his previous outing. He never really fired last season and even at home he didn’t show the same level of work as the previous year, he is a horse that has had his share of problems and even though we found nothing seriously amiss something was obviously bothering him. Unfortunately his niggles resurfaced after his Wetherby race, hence the long gap since then. He is a very good looking horse who is strong to ride on the gallops, he generally works very nicely and so far he has schooled much better this season than last.

Make My Day 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
13:00, Plumpton

Tallow For Coal 
Wed 13th Jan 2021
13:00, Plumpton

Tallow For Coal won an Irish point in Feb, and after a long summer holiday he ran with huge credit to be 2nd on his hurdling debut at Uttoxeter in November. He will have improved for that effort and he should be progressive. He takes on a couple of interesting horses here, but I wouldn't swap him and he has every chance.

Ornate    WINNER! winner

Just got caught on the line - still a nice e/w return.


Tue 12th Jan 2021
17:00, Newcastle

Ran well for much of the race again last week at Lingfield - just getting overrun in the closing stages. Back out again quickly but taking his racing well and acts well here at Newcastle. Remains in great shape - looks competitive again with Royal Birth - the winner of the race we run in last week running again, but hoping we can get closer this time and hopefully gain some revenge. Phil Dennis, who knows the horse well, takes over in the saddle.

Star Dreamer    WINNER! winner

No chance with the easy winner, but stayed on well to take third.


Tue 12th Jan 2021
15:25, Newcastle

Star Dreamer runs in handicap for the first time today and hopefully should find things much easier. The track will suit and the step up to 12 should work too. Can go well.

Miss Elsa 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

4-time winner when with Eve Johnson-Houghton, including over this course and distance. Only second run for us though and last seen just under a year ago here so returning from a long break. Nice to have her back on the track and we've booked Georgia to ride as he used to ride the horse with her previous stable and knows the horse well. Can claim a handy 5lbs too and the step back up to 1m2f will suit. Might just need the run back, but we'd like to think a horse to note going forward once she's back in the swing of things on the track.

Madame Peltier 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

Was very disappointing at Kempton last time out but I don’t think she was suited by the drop in trip. Previously she had won over course and distance so we are hoping that a return to Lingfield will get her back to winning ways.

The Game Is On 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

Ran well here under today's rider in late November and not helped by his wide draw. Again, he is berthed in the car park but starting to look better handicapped and likely to be thereabouts if he gets some luck in-running.

Smiths Cross 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
15:10, Wetherby

Largely disappointing since his bumper/novice hurdle days but was travelling well when falling fairly late on at Newcastle last time out - we feel was in the process of running a nice race. Had just under 4 weeks to get over that and seems okay despite that tumble. Looks more competitive than that race though, but is at least on the same mark here and won't mind the heavy ground, but does still have to prove he stays this far. If his jumping holds up and he stays, then not without an e/w chance as is well-handicapped in what looks a race with a lot of chances.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Just touched off - still a top run.


Tue 12th Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Excuses last time as went left at the start and then pulled way too hard over 6f at Southwell so lost all chance. Had three weeks off since that and dropped back to 5f here will help - providing he starts the race better! Well-drawn in 2 and George takes off a handy 7lbs again. Open race but has a very consistent AW profile with 7 top 3 finishes from 10 starts so even though this is his first run here at Lingfield we feel it will suit. More needed but if breaking better today then Each-way chance.

Roundabout Magic 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Multiple winner here and made for this track. Hold up style often causes problems but he is very determined and sure to go well if things fall right for him and he doesn't get forced wide or meet trouble down the straight.

Silver Bubble 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
13:10, Lingfield Park

Can ignore the last run on debut at Leicester as was slowly and got bogged down in the heavy ground. That came back in October so had a lot of time to recover and is a lot stronger now. Better expected here and the AW should suit but only second career run, plus draw 10 makes life harder.

Hector Loza 
Tue 12th Jan 2021
12:40, Lingfield Park

Looked to be coming back to form last time and is a course winner here. Confidence is steadily returning and much better handicapped now so likely to be involved if things go well for him.

Blow Your Horn 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

Ran well over course and distance before Xmas (4th). That race looked stronger than today's and so we should go very close. The big negative is out draw (9 of 9) though, which certainly makes things harder.

Visibility    WINNER! winner

Another nice winner for the in-form Scott Dixon yard.


Mon 11th Jan 2021
19:15, Wolverhampton

The horses overall are running well at the moment, so that gives us encouragement. This 4 year-old is having his third run for us today and 8th career run in total. Yet to win but has run well here at Wolves in the past (3rd) and is now rated 7lbs lower. Drawn 8 of 9 isn't ideal though and returns from a 2 month break, but is well at home and if getting the breaks in-running would have a small e/w chance.

Quarry Beach 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
16:45, Wolverhampton

Third run for the yard - formerly with Henry Candy. Yet to sparkle for us so we are still learning about her. Down to 7f today we feel is worth go, having run well over this course and distance, but until we see a bit more on the track very much one to taking a watching brief on really.

Habanero Star 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
16:15, Wolverhampton

Monkey Puzzle    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Mon 11th Jan 2021
14:40, Doncaster

Monkey Puzzle is consistent but he is a little bit frustrating, he has plenty of ability but things have to go his way to a certain extent and he prefers good ground, which we haven’t had for a while. He is a half-brother to Presenting Percy and he is a horse that needs to be fresh to be at his best, he’s had a good break now so hopefully he can give a better show.

Cossack Dancer 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
14:05, Doncaster

Cossack Dancer ran well enough on his debut in a bumper at Newbury when finishing seventh, with the penny dropping late on. He then finished third in a novice hurdle at Southwell. He jumps perfectly well but he found it all so easy and he became flippant, so we sent him over to Laura Collett to do some intensive schooling, she did a good job with him and he’s grown up a lot since.

Joseph Hobson 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
14:05, Doncaster

Well back on return run at Hereford at the start of November. Had a few months off to get over that race but a horse that will need more time and benefit from getting a handicap rating. The Tom Lacey runner looks the one to beat.

What A Glance 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
13:05, Doncaster

What A Glance has run with credit on both his starts under rules, he was placed in a bumper before finishing sixth on his first outing over hurdles. He is very athletic over his obstacles and he works nicely enough at home.

Pebbly New Moon    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Oliver's 6 year-old.


Mon 11th Jan 2021
12:50, Hereford

Pebbly shaped like a stayer on his only run to date, a bumper at Ffos Las, where he ran on well to finish second. Unfortunately, he picked up an injury that day and hasn’t run for 597 days. He is as fit as I can get him at home but he will obviously improve for the outing, he’s a big horse that will make a cracking three mile chaser in time.

Calarules    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Tim.


Mon 11th Jan 2021
12:30, Doncaster

Very nice return run at Taunton bac at the end of November (4th of 16). Down a pound for that but has done well at home since. We are also of the opinion that the step up from 2m3f to 3m will suit having stayed on well over a trip that was probably on the short side for him last time. Very open-looking race though, with a lot of chances, but we are one of those and if building on that last run must have decent e/w chances.

Compadre 
Mon 11th Jan 2021
12:30, Doncaster

Much lower mark over hurdles so worth a crack on these terms. Plenty in with chances though in a big field, but an e/w player if things drop right for him.

Archimedes 
Sun 10th Jan 2021
15:50, Southwell

Course winner here and ran better at the track last time out from a poor draw. Better starting stall here in 4 and has done well since that race. Yet to win over this 6f trip so a bit to prove on that front, but is dropped a pound from last time and his light weight helps (8-7). Recent winner - Nick Vedder - is probably the one to beat though but could easily take another step forward and looks a decent e/w price.

Le Milos    WINNER! winner

Promising chase debut from Tim's horse - looks one to note next time.


Sun 10th Jan 2021
14:40, Exeter

Would be a big ask coming back off almost a year off. Has had a wind operation since last season and the plan has been to go chasing with him. Has jumped well for this, but will be one of more interest with a few runs under his belt and a bit more experience jumping fences in public.

Vinnie The Hoddie 
Sun 10th Jan 2021
14:40, Exeter

Clemencia 
Sun 10th Jan 2021
14:10, Exeter

Ran a blinder at Cheltenham last time out (4th) and is actually a pound lower here. That was his first run back from a wind op too so made it all the better, plus the slightly longer trip should suit - stayed on well last time. Is another decent and competitive handicap though so probably small each-way claims, but is fit and well so should run well.

Bond Angel    WINNER! winner

Much better from Scott's horse and should be winning again before too long.


Sun 10th Jan 2021
13:50, Southwell

Only second run for us but an experienced sort that has won 8 times on the AW and a CD winner here. Poor showing last time out but needed the run after a long time off and will be better for it. Back down to last winning mark in a handicap too and Jonathan claims 5lbs too. Looks a race with many chances though with all the 8 runners past course winners too. Certainly capable in a race like this and no shock to see a better run than last time here and not without place claims if able to keep tabs on them early on as does also stay a bit further than this 7f trip. But only 7 runners now, so just 2 places up for grabs with the e/w. Therefore, really we'd just be happy with an improved run and go from there.

Saigon Suzi 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
17:45, Chelmsford

Needs to show something today on her return after a wind-op. Shows some ability at home but hasn't translated that to the track. Hopefully the op has been successful and she will finish her race better.

Saray Prince 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
17:15, Chelmsford

Saray Prince is well bred and was bought cheaply out of Simon Crisford’s yard in August, so it is worth running him in this low grade seller rather than a hot novice, hopefully he can get competitive here if he is not too green, he would have the better chance of our two runners.

Dilly Rosa 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
17:15, Chelmsford

Dilly Rosa didn’t show much on here racecourse debut but she may have fell asleep in the hood, so she is just wearing it to the start this time, dropped in grade here and hopefully she has improved a bit for the run.

Manucci 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
15:57, Kempton Park

Fair flat performer for Amanda Perrett that is having his first run for us. Has some good hurdles experience though with four runs (1 win) and is yet to finish out of the first three over the sticks - has run in some decent races. Trip is fine and handles this soft ground well. We'll find out more but he's a nice recruit to the yard and we are looking forward to getting going with him. Has gone well fresh in the last too so that gives us encouragement - each-way chance.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
15:40, Chelmsford

Won here last month but this is a much higher grade. Plenty on his plate today and has a wide draw which makes thigs tougher still.

Exodela 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
15:30, Kempton Park

Likes the bigger fields, which he'll get here and gets into this better race with a low weight. Fair run at Bangor last time out when second and ran well at Cheltenham three runs back too. We are trying the cheekpieces on today to help him focus. Overall the horse is well and light weight helps in the ground, but a super competitive race.

Dominateur 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
15:10, Chepstow

Dominateur goes in the Welsh National today. Ran well enough on his reappearance this season at Sandown (3rd), he was beaten quite a long way on unsuitable (for him) ground but it was satisfactory as a prep run. He was due to run at Chepstow earlier last month but I was worried about him having too hard a race on the heavy ground (prior to the original date for this race which was postponed two weeks ago), so I gave it a miss and took him for an away day gallop at Nicky Henderson’s instead, he’s perfectly fit it was just to sharpen him up for today. Dominateur is a horse with plenty of ability but he has been let down by his jumping on occasions, we sent him over to Laura Collett after his first run this season and she did a great job of getting him to make a better shape over an obstacle and lift his shoulders more. He’s continued to school well at home since. Goes without saying a tough race but has at least won over fences here and handles the ground so with a light weight and if getting home not without an e/w chance.
Corazon Espinado    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Simon's horse.

 


Sat 9th Jan 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Looked to be coming back to form last time and better handicapped now. Good claimer takes off a valuable 7lb and should be thereabouts if things go well for him and this is not too soon.

Agent of Fortune 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
14:50, Lingfield Park

Did well last season - winning many times, but has rather lost her way since. Hard to get excited until we see a return to some sort of form on the track. On a plus though, is 4lbs lower than last time, is a course winner and has won off higher in the past - but recent runs don't inspire confidence. Maybe the drop back to 7f can help her spark back to life.

Manning Estate 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
13:30, Wincanton

Manning Estate has had a couple of adequate runs over fences but at this stage I think he'll probably do better back over hurdles. We're making the switch as we need to rekindle his enthusiasm a shade.

Nassalam 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
13:25, Chepstow

Looks our clear best chance on the day. No secret that we like this horse and has done well to win both starts for us at Fontwell by 59 and 49 lengths. Goes without saying this is a big step up into a Grade One, but he's a horse with a lot of ability and will love conditions. Has done well at home since that last Fontwell win in early December and even though we have to respect the Pipe and Nicholls runners, we feel he's the one to beat here.

Not Another Muddle 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
13:10, Kempton Park

A Toi Phil 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
13:10, Kempton Park

First run back from a long break - last seen back in February when running a fair race in the Denman Chase. Another Niall helps with a 7lb claim, but with the long break we feel he'll certainly improve for this.

Mr Palmtree    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Sat 9th Jan 2021
12:58, Wincanton

Did really well back in November - winning twice - but as a result shot up the handicap and is now 10lbs higher than the last of those successes. Tabitha's 5lb claim helps again and the horse has had a month off to get over that busy spell (4 races in about 6 weeks). Might have liked better ground too but is well for his time off and as long as conditions don't get any worse would have place chances.

Rays The One 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
12:05, Kempton Park

Former flat horse that came to us from the Michael Bell yard. Has shown a good level on the flat and a horse we like. Schooled well and Niall helps by taking off 7lbs, but we do feel he'll benefit from the experience. One to watch going forward though.

Toronado Grey    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary and the team.


Sat 9th Jan 2021
12:00, Lingfield Park

Fourth run today and has shown a fair level of form without winning. Just got run out of things at Kempton last time out (3rd) but learning all the time and with a nice draw in 4 looks to have a leading chance here and in a race that seems to lack depth should have solid claims of a top three finish at least.

Animal    WINNER! winner

No chance with the first two, but a very promising run and one to note going forward.


Sat 9th Jan 2021
11:52, Wincanton

Showed ability to win a bumper back in February and did okay on debut hurdles run at Stratford (5th of 12). Still learning but has done well in the two months he's had off and looking forward to getting going with him again. Will be one step nearer getting a handicap mark here though and once in those races will be a lot more competitive. Looks between the Pauling, Nicholls and Fry runners.

Sopran Thor 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
11:45, Chepstow

Going the right way - fair run at Newbury last time and done well at home since. Step up in trip will suit as kept on well last time and the softer ground is fine. Hopefully another step forward here and a chance, but really only place claims at best though in what looks a tough race.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

Just failed.


Sat 9th Jan 2021
11:30, Lingfield Park

Having a great Winter and though this is a bit quick back after last weekend he only just does enough so may get away with it. Regular rider is elsewhere but top class replacement so just needs luck in-running. Obvious chance.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Sat 9th Jan 2021
11:30, Lingfield Park

CD winner here and is well after a small break. Wasn't beaten far here last time out over a mile, but the step up in trip here will help and that was also the horses first run off a wind op. Could go well at a fair price. Each-way.

Professor Galant    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Fri 8th Jan 2021
19:15, Southwell

Yet to win from 6 starts but has not be disgraced and has ability at this sort of level. Had a month off since his last run here (5th of 11) and dropped a pound for that. Does need to learn to save a bit for the second half of the race as been racing a bit keen, but he's learning all the time and with George helping to take off 7lbs again then hopeful of another bold bid with e/w claims, but only 7 runners (2 places).

Driftwood 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
18:15, Southwell

Third run so she will get a handicap mark after this but seems to be going the right way with two fair runs here over 5f. Had excuses the last day too as got worked up at the start and wasn't the best away either. Another that will be sporting the first time cheekpieces here, but regardless will get a mark after this and that will help. The betting suggests the Burke, Johnston and Tate runners will go well, but we are not without an e/w chance providing the pre-race goes better and she's better away.

Bayaanaat 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
17:45, Southwell

Bayaanaat is a well-bred horse that started out for Shadwell Farm with Dermot Weld where he disappointed and he was picked up quite cheaply. He has shown glimmers of ability over hurdles and works very well at home, so I'm interested to see how he'll do returning to the Flat.

Samovar 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
17:15, Southwell

Taking his racing well as always - this will be his fourth race this year if he takes his chance. Won well here yesterday in a weaker race and seems well after that. Like our other runner in this race we'll see how he is during the day but at least this is an evening meeting so gives us a bit more time. 5lb penalty for yesterday's win and back up in grade here so more on his plate, but he's a tough sort that is clearly in great heart at the moment. Should go well again and it would be wonderful if he can make it three wins in 2021! 

Giogiobbo 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
17:15, Southwell

Gently Spoken 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
16:45, Southwell

Back into a handicap here after running in a Classified Stakes race here last time over 6f. The step back up to 7f will suit and not the best race helps. But certainly needs to show more on what we've seen on the track recently, but on a plus, the horses seem to be running well with a few surprising us at the moment so maybe the first-time cheekpieces will eke out some improvement.

Alrightjack 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
15:20, Lingfield Park

Alrightjack won an ordinary bumper, and showed some good form over hurdles last season, and more recently over fences. However, he disappointed on his latest start where he jumped badly out to his left and looked as though he had lost his confidence. We thought a spin back in a 'jumpers bumper' might do his confidence some good, and he has the ability to feature in a race of this nature providing he can put his best foot forward.

Le Boulevardier 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
14:20, Lingfield Park

Le Boulevardier is a half-brother to Volturnus and while he has more natural ability he is less straight-forward than his sibling. He has a mind of his own and is a bit of a playboy whose early bumper form was good but he has become more frustrating. Possible place chances.

Hit The Rocks 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
13:50, Lingfield Park

Last seen running here back since June 20, so first run back off a break so probably best-watched on this occasion.

Jumping Cats    WINNER! winner

Top call from Gary and another nice TQ View winner this month.


Fri 8th Jan 2021
13:20, Lingfield Park

Hopefully our best chance of the day. Not really progresses over hurdles as we'd have liked. But is at home on the AW - won over this trip at Chelmsford back in September, which should give him every chance.

Volturnus 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
13:20, Lingfield Park

Volturnus's jumping career was interrupted by injury and after a year's absence his October return was disappointing. He likes decent ground so this jumpers' bumper should be suitable especially as he was a three-time winner on all-weather when trained by Jamie Osborne before joining us.

Plenty Of Butty 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
13:20, Lingfield Park

Been doing okay over the sticks this season, but with limited opportunities at the moment nice to get a run into him in this NH Flat race. Should be fine on the surface as likes good ground on the turf and is well after a few months off. But not really a betting race in my opinion with a lot of trainers in the same boat as us.

Tazka 
Fri 8th Jan 2021
12:20, Lingfield Park

Obviously first time on the AW for us so hard to assess in a race like this.  In good form though and has been working well so if taking to the surface then would have e/w claims.

Beauty Choice 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
19:00, Wolverhampton

Won here two runs back and was only just run out of things late on here last time. Had a month to get over that last run and only 2lbs higher this time. Same draw (4) as last time helps and the horse is well at home. All points to another big run with Stevie Donohoe in the saddle again.

Productive 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
18:00, Wolverhampton

Has been disappointing recently so we are reaching for the blinkers today - he did work well in them at home recently. We plan to ride him patiently and try to get him to finish his race. He is well-handicapped now but would like to see some improvement.

Royal Heart

He ran well first time out and looked like he need the run. This looks a competitive affair with Stanley Baldwin of Michael Bell’s looking the one to beat on paper. John Gosden’s newcomer which is the half to Aljazzi is an exciting type on pedigree and this looks a tricky contest. He has drawn well in one and Dan Muscutt takes the ride.

Didn't settle over 6f at Wolverhampton last time out so the drop back to 5f here will help as they will go quicker, but does stay 6f well. Only 2lbs higher than last win here in October so can't rule out based on that effort, but an open race with many chances. Small e/w claims.

May The Sixth 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
15:45, Southwell

Second runner for us in this race - bit to prove here at the track with three average showings so far. Trying the cheekpieces on today and only had 5 career runs so has time on her side. Experienced jockey in Levi Williams riding in this apprentice race helps, but need to show a bit more on the track really - small e/w chance.

Leo Minor    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Thu 7th Jan 2021
15:45, Southwell

Ran better last time out at Newcastle - same mark here and we've booked Mollie Phillips to ride as she can claim 5lbs. Low weight and worked well on the track recently so will be okay with the surface. No shock to see a better run here and looks a nice e/w price.

Gossip    WINNER! winner

A top treble on the day for Scott Dixon.


Thu 7th Jan 2021
15:45, Southwell

One of two in the race for us and looks our better chance. Won over this trip here two runs back but just got tired over 6f last time. Still ran a decent fourth of 12 that day and gets in here off the same mark. Bradley Harris, who will be looking for his second career win, rides in this apprentice race to claim 5lbs so that helps too. Should have fair e/w chances.

Thu 7th Jan 2021
14:45, Southwell

Taking his racing well - this will be his 65th career run and his sixth in the last month. Dropped in grade helps into a Class 6, but as a result a lot of weight. We help him by taking off 5lbs with Jonathan's claim though and despite being a horse that is more often placed than winning, he should have a big chance in this grade and we'd be disappointed if he's not going close.

Olivers Pursuit 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
13:45, Southwell

In great form at the moment - winning his last two at Wolves. Only 3lbs higher this time and has come out of those races well - but probably more on his plate here. Had a small 3 week break and is ready to run again. Only question mark is that he's never run here at Southwell before so the surface is an unknown, but we feel it will suit, so fingers crossed on that score. If that's the case then would have a decent chance in a race that's cut up this morning and looks between us and the Appleby and Tate runners.

Headland    WINNER! winner

Visor did the trick for Scott's runner.


Thu 7th Jan 2021
13:45, Southwell

Very hard to fancy on current form - been well beaten the last three times he's run here. Down another 2lbs helps and trying the first-time visor but overall need to see more on the track.

Dark Shot 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
13:15, Southwell

Consistent sprinter but is now 11 races without a win. Drop back to 5f here will suit after getting tired over 6f last time, but ran well that day until getting tired in the closing stages. Same mark here too so although another solid run on the cards these sprints are often won by narrow margins and really who wants it on the day.

Giogiobbo 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
13:15, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and, maybe on current form, our better chance. A close second here last time out to Thegreatestshowman - beaten just 1/2 a length. Better off at the weights here though and Jonathan riding this time to claim 5lbs. If running to that level, should not be far away.

Duke Of Firenze 
Thu 7th Jan 2021
13:15, Southwell

Fair run last time out here, but got a bit isolated coming up the stands stand on his own and that's not the best place to be here. Phil takes over in the saddle and as we know he knows the horse well. Only 2lbs higher than when winning here three runs back and if back to that sort of level then he's every chance at a big price in a tight little race.

Countess Reach 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
17:45, Kempton

Been running in NH Flat races recently and down the field on all three runs. Having her debut on the AW here and should enjoy the drop in trip as didn't quite see it out over 1m5f last time. Likely to be better once handicapped on the flat though after three runs.

Gyspy Boy 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
17:10, Kempton

Returns from around 3 months off so can be expected to improve for this. Can ignore the last run too as that came on heavy ground at Leicester. Back on the AW will suit and has run well here at Wolverhampton in the past too. Small e/w chance.

Zankala 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
17:10, Kempton Park

She has shown some glimpses in her first three starts and hopefully a try in maiden handicap company may yet see further improvement. William Knight's and Phil McEntee's horses look the ones to beat on paper. We have added visors to help sharpen her up and Adam Kirby, who is in great form at the moment, takes the ride.

Smokey Malone 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
17:10, Kempton Park

Hasn't shown much in three runs for a handicap mark. He works much better than his mark suggests though - he is on a very low weight with Tyler Heard claiming 7lbs too. Blinkers have been applied and he did work well in them at home so we would hope for plenty of improvement here today.

Fuwairt 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
16:10, Kempton Park

Solid first run for us last month and a repeat should put him in the mix. Takes some knowing and needs delivering late so Cameron Noble his old sparring partner is back on board taking a handy 3lbs off.

Scorched Earth 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
15:55, Wolverhampton

A rather enigmatic character who has plenty of ability should he choose to use it! The extra couple of furlongs today should suit him, but it will be a case of kidding him into it, so that he doesn't think he is making too much effort!!

Delcia 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
15:40, Kempton Park

No real form to speak of but there is a small race in her. Dam was with us and won here over this trip. At this level anything can happen and could easily go well at a big price if things go smoothly for her.

Scale Force 
Wed 6th Jan 2021
12:45, Wolverhampton

Just the one career win from 22 starts so not one to rely on too much. Down the field the last twice at Southwell and Newcastle too over 6f, but the drop back to 5f here will suit. Goes well at the track too and is down 2lbs from last time to a career-low rating so would have an e/w chance, but does have a wide draw in 8 to overcome. 

Chitra 
Tue 5th Jan 2021

Game filly, who has done plenty of winning and dangerous off this mark in a competitive race and has a nice draw in 1.

Light of Air 
Tue 5th Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Out of form and still looking for first AW win from 12 starts. Ran on okay behind a horse that has won again since last time here, but still have a bit to find being just a pound lower. Also drawn 15 of 16 here makes life very hard and based on that it's hard to pass on anything more positive.

Fairy Fast 
Tue 5th Jan 2021
15:10, Lingfield Park

Didn't run as bad as finishing position suggested last time here over this trip - just over 5 lengths off the winner. Down 4lbs for that helps and with a better start would have been closer. The visor is on for the first time to try and help her focus and is certainly starting to look well-handicapped on old form - won on the turf off an 8lb higher mark. But really just looking for a step forward here as draw 9 makes life harder still, while it might be hard for any of us to beat the in-form Passional.

Ballydoyle 
Tue 5th Jan 2021
14:40, Lingfield Park

Bad race and that would give us a leading chance here. Has run well over the sticks last time out and ran well here over this trip the twice before that. Down a pound from last AW run and the visor on for the first time will help, so we'd be disappointed if he's not going close here. Tom Queally rides.

Tinsmith    WINNER! winner

Promising effort from this rare Jamie Snowden flat runner.


Tue 5th Jan 2021
14:40, Lingfield Park

Didn't really take to hurdling, but ran okay back on the flat the last day. This step up in trip promises to suit and this looks a terrible race! I wouldn't know much about AW racing but hopefully he gets a bit of luck in-running. Each-way chance.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Tue 5th Jan 2021
14:10, Lingfield Park

Most recent runs over further but worth a try back at 6f and top apprentice claims 7lb and should suit her. Has run well round here before and should be thereabouts if all goes to plan.

Maxine    WINNER! winner

Just missed out.


Tue 5th Jan 2021
12:40, Lingfield Park

Yet to win a race from 5 starts, but is going the right way and not been beaten far the last twice - both at Wolverhampton. Those last two run were also better than they looked as fluffed the start last time and was struck into the time before. Down a pound from that last run too and Luke Morris a plus in the saddle. Should go well with a decent e/w chance.

Mukha Magic 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
17:20, Wolverhampton

Not been far away in his recent races - without winning. Down 2lbs for his last run, when a fair 4th (of 9) at Lingfield and up in trip again here (1m6f). Maybe a bit to prove over this distance with all three flat wins coming around 1m4f but we've got George Bass booked to ride to claim 7lbs this time and hoping that will help him with his stamina. Should run well and won't be far away, but the in-form Lleyton might be hard to beat.

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Another few strides and would have won.


Mon 4th Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Nice winner last time at Kempton - that was his first career win but had been knocking on the door. Up 2lbs for that, but Rhys on today to claim 7lbs so actually better off. Has come out of that race well and hopefully can do the same again today.

Clockers Corner 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Only second run for us - was slowly away here over a mile last time but is 5lbs lower here and we feel the step up to 1m4f here will help. But still more needed and likely to be going over hurdles soon, but good to get another run into him.

Party Planner 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
15:40, Lingfield Park

Nice horse that came to us from the Roger Varian camp. Lightly-raced still, with just 5 runs and is having her first run after a wind op. Not had the horse long but has settled in well - we'll find out more here but we are encouraged that he's in here 3lbs lower than his last run when a close third at Wolves and we've also Stefano on today to claim 5lbs. We'll learn a lot, but with a nice draw in 3 could have a small e/w chance here.

Guinness Affair    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice sort for Jamie.


Mon 4th Jan 2021
15:25, Fakenham

Is a nicely bred individual, who had a good bit of education in Ireland last season. He arrived with us this autumn and he's done plenty of work here. He goes well and will make up into a nice sort. Providing the ground isn't a bog, then I think he'll run a good race here on debut - in a race which doesn't look all that strong. 

Chimes Of Dylan    WINNER! winner

Plugged on for a remote third.


Mon 4th Jan 2021
14:55, Fakenham

Not looking too badly treated at the moment - running off 5lbs lower than last win. But has been a bit out of form of late so does need to bounce back. That said, was a fair third at Warwick last time out - albeit 22 lengths back. But we are trying him up in trip to 3m5f here as feel it will suit but also a bit of an experiment. Stayed on well last time to suggest it's worth a crack, so e/w chance if getting the yardage.

River Sprite    WINNER! winner

Top run - just failed.


Mon 4th Jan 2021
14:40, Lingfield Park

Steps up in trip to a mile and a quarter - difficult to predict as she is not the most consistent but does has ability.

Come On Tier 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
14:40, Lingfield Park

Course winner but has not been setting the world alight in recent runs so need to see more on the track. Is down another 3lbs and we've at least a much better draw (1) than last time, so that will help. Down into a 0-55 race here too, so weaker race and we feel he's worth another crack over this 1m2f trip with Dougie Costello taking over this time. Needs to settle better to get the trip as pulled last time and got tired in the closing stages as a result. In short, the horse is well, but we need to see more on the track, so just be happy with an improved run here. 

Pure Bubbles 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
14:10, Lingfield Park

Step up in distance which will hopefully bring out some improvement but a very tough race that is likely to go to one of the first four in the betting.

Episode 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
13:55, Fakenham

Ran well on the track last time when a close second. Up 2lbs here and Jamie takes over. Hopefully she can reproduce that today which should give her every chance.

Tippingituptonancy 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
13:55, Fakenham

Yet to show much but is still lightly-raced and is having her handicap debut here today so that will help. Has her fair share of weight (11-12) - she doesn't look too badly treated - We'll learn more about her mark here. Found the ground a bit too lively last time so the softer surface here will help too and overall feel the horse can run much better today. Each-way chance. 

Mrsgrey 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
13:55, Fakenham

Has run well the last twice - without winning - with her recent third at Ludlow her best form so far. Dropped a pound for that last outing too helps and will be fine on the ground and over this slightly longer trip. A similar run would give her a fair e/w chance.

Landsman 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
13:40, Lingfield Park

Lost all chance last time after being slowly away and the 1m4f trip was a bit on the sharp side. Up to 2m here will help and 4lbs lower, plus is also in an easier race (down 2 grades). Still need to see more on the track though, but feel he's got a bit more in his favour this time so we'll be happy with a step forward and go from there.

Ornate 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
13:10, Lingfield Park

Just got chinned on the line her last time out by Royal Birth, who we meet again. We are meeting again on similar terms ,but Ornate has come out of that last race well and hopeful we can be bang there again. Looks sure to be a tight one again, but hopefully we can turn the tables this time.

Gyllen 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
12:25, Fakenham

Down the field on UK debut at Taunton last month. Another education here on only his second run over hurdles but has some fair flat form in France - Group 2 winner - and will be better once handicapped.

Hunters Step    WINNER! winner

Just nailed on the line.


Mon 4th Jan 2021
12:10, Lingfield Park

First run for us after coming from the Nigel Tinkler yard. Has 2 wins on the AW in the past - both at Newcastle, but no reason why Lingfield won't suit on his first run here too. 3lbs higher than last win (Oct 20) and we are also sticking with his normal jockey - Faye McManoman - and she can claim a handy 3lbs too. We'll, of course, learn more today as we've not had the horse long and draw 10 not ideal, but certainly hopeful he can pick up races like this for us going forward and not without place claims here if able to get a bit of luck from that draw.

Chica Del Dia 
Mon 4th Jan 2021
12:10, Lingfield Park

Still not shown much but did at least stay on back on trip last time out. Has a small race in her and this looks her best chance of getting involved.

Dormio 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
15:45, Southwell

Bit of a fact-finding mission here today as stepping significantly up in trip - has been running over 7f of late but now trying him over 1m3f. Needs to improve for the extra yardage, but we think it's worth a crack and that he will - so hopefully after this it will open up a few more options.

Call Off The Dogs    WINNER! winner

Just run out of things in the closing stages.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
15:28, Plumpton

Our last runner on the day and hopefully can end with another good chance. Won at Fontwell last time out - battled on well to get up by a neck that day, but the slight drop back in trip here should help. Up 5lbs for that, but a horse that is still lightly-raced (6 runs) and should have more to come.

Invicta Lake 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
15:28, Plumpton

14 years-old now so we are taking every race at a time with him now - but seems in good form at home at the moment. Back to Plumpton today and to a course he's won at over this trip before - likes it here. Certainly very well handicapped on old form though with last win (Feb 19) coming off an 11lb higher mark and is 3lbs lower than when last seen. Things happened a bit too quick for him last time at Warwick after a better run at Exeter, Soft ground is fine too and off this low mark could easily run into a place at a fair price.

Quiet Penny 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
15:28, Plumpton

Quiet Penny pulled up on her first start for us, but that was after a long absence and she raced too freely that day and blew up.  She strips fitter today, and should be less gassy here, so the drop in trip might be in her favour too.  If she handles heavy ground, then she should run a nice race here at a big enough price as she works better than her handicap mark....

High Up In The Air    WINNER! winner

Jumped really well and another TQ View winner this month.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:58, Plumpton

Should have a leading chance here is able to back up his recent win at Lingfield. Does have a bit further to go here but has won over 2m4f in the past so no issues on that score and 5lb rise looks fair. Ground fine too and has won over hurdles here at Plumpton - looks to have a lot going for him, with the Newland and Williams runners feared most.

Archimedes 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:45, Southwell

Course winner that has dropped down the ratings of late. Draw 13 not ideal but ran well to be a fair 5th of 14 two runs ago here off this mark and a bit of improvement on that would give him a squeak - certainly capable on old form off this mark and if in the mood. But just be happy to see some better and consistent form on the track to be more confident.

Cheque En Blanc 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:25, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us. Winner two runs back at Fontwell, but failed to follow that up at Fakenham next time out off a 5lbs higher mark. Is down a pound for that, but has won over this CD, which is something that can't be said for any of the others in the race. Light weight helps a lot and that means he can't be discounted at a fair price. Plus, Niall, who gets on well with him, claims 7lbs again, so can't rule out having an e/w chance.

Benevolentdictator    WINNER! winner

Did well to stay on for third after a few mistakes - still looks a horse to note.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:25, Plumpton

Pleased us a lot over fences this season - winning both starts and another bold bid is on the cards. Is, however, up 11lbs from his last win here so a lot more on his plate here taking on more experienced chases in a better race. But is going the right way and did do it nicely last time (14 lengths). Is also up another 3 furlongs here, but runs as if this extra yardage is within range. Looks one of the main players and excited to see how he gets on again.

Seaston Spirit    WINNER! winner

Another win for this improving staying chaser.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:25, Plumpton

Keith (as he's known at home) was impressive in his only race so far this season, a handicap hurdle at Ffos Las, the ground was desperate that day and he had the run of the race to provide young Kai Lenihan with his first winner under rules. Keith has been in good form at home since that run, he was quite naughty as a young horse but these days he’s settled down and he’s easy to deal with. He loves extreme conditions and distances and his jumping is usually very good. Goes without saying a very competitive renewal of this Sussex National, but we'd like to think we come here as one of the leading players. Aidan Colemen, who won on the horse 2 runs back, takes over in the saddle
Samovar    WINNER! winner

Another consistent effort from Scott's horse.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:10, Southwell

Gained a deserved win here in the week - just 2 days ago - and is back for more. Carries a penalty here though and is up in grade so more needed, but a horse that always tries and takes his racing well. Should be bang there again today, but despite his recent success - as I've said many times - he's a horse that is more often placed than winning.

Dark Shot 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
14:10, Southwell

Ran well for much of the way here in the week but faded into third in the end. Down a pound and Jon rides to claim 5lbs so we are 6lbs better off and that should help with this also being a slight drop in grade - each-way.

Norley 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:53, Plumpton

Norley showed promise in his bumper at Warwick on his first outing last season and we thought he’d be a decent novice hurdler this year, he was very disappointing on his only run this season and he was subsequently found to have breathing issues. Norley had an operation to correct this and it’s his first run since. Norley is an extremely good looking son of Yeats and typically of that sire he’s quite a gassy horse at home, he’s a good work horse and has always schooled well. Certainly hopeful of better, but first run back from the op will give us a chance to see where we are after this.
Dorking Lad 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:53, Plumpton

We were disappointed he didn't win last time out when running at Market Rasen (2nd) in the week - has come out of that race well to take his chance again here. Longer trip should suit as stayed on well last time over slightly shorter and doesn't look a race with much depth. The Gordon horse to beat, but hoping the 10lbs we get from that one makes the difference and providing this doesn't come too soon we feel the horse should have every chance of getting off the mark.

Thomas Macdonagh    WINNER! winner

Came home alone but a nice winner for Jamie Snowden.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:30, Catterick

Thomas Macdonagh was a classy hurdler last season, and having won an Irish Point in the past, he has taken to chasing well. He has been placed in his first two chase starts, and is sure to open his account before long. He raced a bit free the last time over 3m around Chepstow, so if he settles better he'll have a great chance of winning here.....but it’s a tight little race.

Evas Oskar 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:30, Catterick

Just the three runners and we all look to have big says. Eva's is a nice horse that ran well on his chase debut at Exeter last time out. With that outing also coming off a break then he's improved for that and also stayed on well after making a few early mistakes. Slightly longer trip will suit and the ground is fine. With just 2lbs between the three runners then we must head here with a decent chance in a very open little race.

San Pedro De Senam 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:20, Plumpton

Not been out since Oct 2019 when brought down at Huntingdon but was beaten at the time anyway. Has had some issues of late - hence the long time off - but is ready to run again, but does have a lot of weight on this return here. Course winner though, so one of the reasons we are starting him back off here but goes without saying will improve for the outing after such a time off.

Right Hand Of God 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
13:20, Plumpton

Hopefully we've found a good opportunity for the horse here but won't be easy with the Evan Williams runner setting a fair standard. Our horse will also need to settle a bit better than last time when taking a bit of a hold, but handled the track here at Plumpton well and the drop back in trip should help as got a bit tired in the closing stages the last day. Has also improved for that run as it came off a long break - should run well.

Twenty Twenty    WINNER! winner

Slightly surprising winner for Gary.


Sun 3rd Jan 2021
12:48, Plumpton

One of two in the race for us and looks our second string really on recent runs. Down the field the last twice over hurdles and is also having his chase debut today. Schools well enough and not badly treated with Tom's claim. Just be happy with a clear round and go from there.

Ar Mest 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
12:48, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us and probably our better chance of our two, but are fearful of the Jamie Snowden runner. Yet to win over fences but has only had 4 chase runs. Was a fair third of 6 at Ascot last time out - jumped a bit left that day but that might not be as much of an issues here at Plumpton. Trip and ground are fine and Jamie rides. Hopeful of a good run and not without a small chance, but just feel he might find the first two in the betting too good.

Thebannerkingrebel 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
12:48, Plumpton

Thebannerkingrebel was a graded performer in bumpers and over hurdles, and he won on his chasing debut at this track in December but with his only rival unseating early, he didn't achieve a great deal that day. He carries a penalty for that success and steps up 2 furlongs in trip here. He looks the class horse in the race, but it’s never easy carrying penalties and so is vulnerable here. Page takes the ride for the first time as Gavin is banned, so let’s hope she can get a nice tune out of him today.

Mickyh 
Sun 3rd Jan 2021
12:27, Catterick

Well back on debut at Sandown, but that was a slightly better race than this. Has learned a lot from that but will still need more time and experience - will be better once handicapped. Bareback Jack looks the main player here.

Zamperini 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
15:35, Sandown

Did well last season and last seen winning at Plumpton Sept 2019. But back in the deepend a bit here after having a few issues and after a long break. Nice to get going with the horse again, but will certainly come on for the run.

Roundabout Magic 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
15:30, Lingfield Park

Multiple winner here and at this trip, drawn wide again but not a huge disadvantage if they go hard enough. Needs luck in-running but can never be left out and sure to run his usual great race.

Do Your Job 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
14:25, Sandown Park

Nice to have a runner in this Grade One. Has progressed well this season - winning twice and wasn't disgraced last time out when second at Haydock in a Listed race. Handles the ground well and likes to get on with things so that will be the plan again here. Taking on some promising sorts - notably the Fry and Jane Williams runners, but is well after a small break and we feel a bold bid is on the cards.

Grandeur Dame 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
14:25, Sandown

We really like him, but [owner] Andrew Brooks, his team and I weren't keen on going down the bumper route for the rest of the season, so we decided to go hurdling, although there was no point going round the gaff tracks at this stage of the campaign. We know he loves soft ground, so we thought we'd put him in good races and if he wins, happy days, we'll be over the moon, but if he doesn't he'll run in a couple of others and have the experience as a second-season novice hurdler next term. He's been a bit rushy in his schooling – seeing the hurdles and charging at them – so he's got to relax a bit, but his actual jumping is very good. I wouldn't have done this on decent ground, but we know he handles this soft, horrible ground.

A close second here two runs back - but fell at Ascot last time out when still in with a chance. Is okay after that tumble and schooled well since. Drop in trip is fine and slightly better off with Darebin, who beat then horse here at the start of December. Jamie rides and should go well, but goes without saying there are one or two others in the race with big chances too - notably Ibleo.

Darebin 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021

Loves it here at Sandown - probably a 10lb better for here. Won this race in 2019 too and ran okay (4th) in it last year. Beat our other runner - Early De Lemo - at this track last time by a neck but with no disrespect to Dave Noonan, this horse is probably better with Jamie riding too. Not without a squeak with just 10st to carry at a track he loves, but if pressed feel Lemo can come out on top of our two today.

Passing Nod 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

CD winner here and has done well on two starts for us since coming from the David O'Meara yard - only beaten 3 1/2 lengths last time out. Down 2lbs for that and is now a pound lower than his CD win here around a year ago. Danny Muscutt takes over in the saddle too, plus a fair draw in 7. The Ron Harris runner - Merweb would be a danger, but is drawn wide so that gives us hope, but overall we head here hopeful of a nice e/w run - anything else a bonus.

Apollinaris    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to win with a bit to spare.


Sat 2nd Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Worth a try at this trip as been outpaced over shorter in two starts for us. Shapes as if there are races to come for him and should be thereabouts if things go well for him and he stays settled.

Trixie Waterbury 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
13:45, Lingfield Park

Needed the run last time after 3 months off. Fair draw here in 6 and has improved for that last outing. Should be more to come as only had four career runs. First run here at the track but no reason why it won't suit and with another step forward here would have an e/w chance.

Wake Up Harry    WINNER! winner

Another top winner on the day for the Dow camp.


Sat 2nd Jan 2021
12:35, Lingfield Park

Pleasing debut recently and sure to have benefitted from the experience. Looks a fair novice for this time of year but he should be involved if he builds on his first run and has been round Lingfield in a Barrier trial. Looks a nice prospect for the future.

Vanity Affair 
Sat 2nd Jan 2021
12:35, Lingfield Park

Made an eye-catching debut at Kempton last time out and should have learnt plenty for that race. I’m not convinced this track will suit him that well but he will learn a lot racing here as it’s quite sharp and he will need to be on his A-game. Should still run well in a race that seems to lack depth.

Hudson De Grugy    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Gary and the yard.


Sat 2nd Jan 2021
12:05, Sandown

The Tom Symonds runner is respected but we would be disappointed if we can't take this after his run at the track (2nd) last time out. Will be fine on the ground and has done well since that race at home. Clearly our best chance on the day.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Simon and the team.


Sat 2nd Jan 2021
11:30, Lingfield Park

Regular here and made it his fourth success over this distance last time. This is a slight rise in class but the horse is at the top of his game and rider knows him well. Needs things to fall right for him, but he knows where the line is.

False Id 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
15:30, Southwell

Ran a cracker last time out when a close second here over this trip. Up 2lbs for that but has come out of the race well and on slightly better terms with the winner last time - Straight Ash - then hopefully we can turn the tables.

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Fri 1st Jan 2021
15:30, Southwell

Makes her Fibresand debut but on breeding and running style should suit. Looked like she just needed the run the last time but still only beaten 2 lengths. In good form at home and hopefully will get the slightly longer trip. Each-way chance.

Plenty written about this horse recently - as we know he's a horse that takes his racing well and always tries. Does have a habit of finding a few too good in his races though but is never far away. No let-up from the handicapper still though and on the same mark as when third here last time out. Mulzim and Duke Of Firenze have finished ahead of us in recent races so a bit to find with them. But, on a plus, we are dropped in grade slightly here and a nice draw in 2. As always, should be thereabouts.

Duke Of Firenze 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
14:25, Southwell

Old favourite that is still enjoying his racing. No explanation for the run last time when last of 9 here over this trip. Wasn't the best away that day though, but the form of his win two runs ago would give him a decent chance. Laura rides and claims 7lbs again, seems well at home and if putting that last run behind him then more than capable here off only 2lbs higher than last win.

Nice mare that's run some big races in defeat this season. Has tended to jumped right in the past but that should be okay at this right-handed track. We've given her a month off to get over that recent busy spell and she seems ready to go again. Very tough race but if running to a similar level than in recent runs this season then would have a decent say.

Fri 1st Jan 2021
13:50, Southwell

One of two in the race for us and hard to split my two - both have chances, but then it looks a race that all 5 do too! This 8 year-old ran here just 3 days ago (5th) but had an excuse that day as fluffed the start - tried to jump the gates and lost all chance. If better than that and a repeat of his second two runs back would see him go close (with a better start!).

Dark Shot 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
13:50, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us - has been running well of late without winning but is down another pound here and in this better race gets in with a low weight (8-5). Tight little race, but the horse is well and not without a chance if things fall right.

Ajax Tavern 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
12:45, Musselburgh

Former 80-rated flat runner but is having his debut over hurdles here and also first run for us - was with Richard Hannon. Fit from the flat - having run well when last seen running at Chelmsford in October (3rd). Lack of experience over hurdles might just catch him out but his proven flat speed will be a plus and a nice horse for the yard - one to note going forward. Small e/w chance with little depth to the race, as the McCain horse looking the main player and likely winner.

Best Tamayuz 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
12:40, Southwell

Not seen since 2018 - so returning from around 2 1/2 years off after having some issues. CD winner though so the track is fine and returns on a fair mark and we are helping him with Jon's claim. But goes without saying after such a time off can be expected to improve for this, but seems well and feel there is another race in him despite his age (10).

De Bruyne Horse 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
12:40, Southwell

Course winner here with last win coming off a 6lb higher mark. Down the field over this trip here last time but 3lbs lower helps and is in good shape at home. Small bit to prove at this 1m trip, with all wins coming over shorter, but hopeful of a good run. Each-way price.

Bond Angel 
Fri 1st Jan 2021
12:05, Southwell

CD winner here in the past, but only second run for us. Well back on first run for us here over 7f in November so more needed. But that came after a break and the step up to 1m here looks more in her favour. We'll learn more here and even though hard to see a win, certainly hopeful of better.

Trixie Mitskie 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
17:50, Newcastle

Yet to win a race from 9 starts so not a race to go mad in, but we'd still have an each-way squeak here. Had excuses the last day at Lingfield, when scoping badly after the race and in what looks a bad race that would give us a chance. Nice draw in 5 helps and we've left the blinkers off this time as they made no impact last time. Jazzy Socks and Desert Mist look the main dangers, but we'd have a small e/w chance.

Mont Kiara 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
15:35, Lingfield Park

Well handicapped these days but not the force of old and needs a revival to feature. Wide draw no help but could work out if they go fast and might go well at a big price if things go well for him.

Desert Marathon 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

Desert Marathon is drawn in the car park which is frustrating as her form is as good as anything in the race. If she can get out of the gates well and get a good position then she will go close. Hayley Turner rides.

Boma Green 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Boma Green has been immensely frustrating this year but his work recently in a visor has been very good. Drop to 7f won’t be a problem and he is well drawn. Should go well. Stevie Donohoe rides.

Corazon Espinado    WINNER! winner

Battled on well and only just denied.


Thu 31st Dec 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Below par in recent efforts but likes it here and slipping down the handicap. Would have a great chance if anything like back to his best but needs a change in fortune on the way round. Rider knows him well and not too badly drawn for a change, so can't be discounted.

Little Boy Boru 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
14:25, Warwick

Old boy that is still enjoying his racing at 12, going on 13! Ran okay on his return at Plumpton last month but just needed that and will be a lot sharper for that. Longer trip is fine and loves the soft ground too. Better race here but that means we get in with just 10-6 and the jockey can claim another 7lbs. Dropped 3lbs from last time too so looking on a fair mark that could easily see him run well off this light weight. Each-way chance.

Via Serendipity    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Charlie's horse.


Thu 31st Dec 2020
14:00, Lingfield Park

Via Serendipity ran a huge race at Kempton last time out and is clearly best on the all weather. He has never run around Lingfield before but I see no reason why it won’t suit him. The final on all weather champs day is his aim, so this will give us a good pointer as to whether that will suit. Hayley Turner rides.

Western Climate    WINNER! winner

Well done to the Henry Oliver yard and another nice TQ View winner - 7/1 into 7/2!


Thu 31st Dec 2020
13:50, Warwick

Often runs well here at Warwick and is also a course winner here. Blew away the cobwebs last time out here and was a bit rusty at some of his fences which cost him really. Stayed on well in the end though and will be a lot better for that run and that also came on ground that was a bit lively for him. Softer conditions here will help and stays further than this trip too. Has a good overall record over fences of hitting the frame and now into these veterans' races should have a better chance racing against horses in and around his age. Each-way claims.

The Fresh Prince 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
13:50, Warwick

Prince won at Huntingdon first time out this season before running below par next time out at Uttoxeter where he was found to be lame post race.The lameness was behind the saddle and it seems he pulled muscles in his back, he was treated by our physiotherapist Michelle and along with some swimming he came right after a few days. Prince had a quiet couple of weeks thereafter and since he came back into full work he has been absolutely fine. Prince is a very tall, good looking horse who had had his fair share of problems over the years and as a result he is lightly raced so even though he is about to turn eleven he still has plenty of miles on the clock so this veterans' race looks ideal - conditions are fine and looks to have an e/w chance in an open affair.
Wrynner 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
12:50, Warwick

Well back on debut run at Hereford earlier this month. Step up in trip and tongue-tie on today should help, but will be better once getting a handicap mark - looks between the first three in the betting.

Getaway Suzy 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
12:50, Warwick

Former Pointer but has only had one run under rules when down the field at Fakenham 11 days ago. Slight step up in trip and the softer ground will help but very much work in progress and will be better once handicapped.

Durouyn 
Thu 31st Dec 2020
12:16, Warwick

Bounced back to form last time out at Sedgefield with an excellent second and gets in here off the same mark. Similar trip - down a furlong here - while the heavy ground is fine too. If backing up that last win then no reason why he can't run well and should have a decent e/w chance.

Golden Force    WINNER! winner

Top call from Charlie and another TQ View winner this month too.


Wed 30th Dec 2020
18:10, Wolverhampton

Looked very unlucky over this CD last time out, so hopefully he can get revenge on De Vegas Kid, who won that race, tonight. He is well drawn (2) and Stevie is back riding - which are two big positives.

Recuerdame 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
17:10, Wolverhampton

Course winner here and with today's rider. Drawn a bit wide but might get away with it in a small field. Had a short break and should be thereabouts if back to his best and no surprise to see him involved.

Dorking Lad 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
15:25, Market Rasen

Comes here instead of running yesterday and we are hopeful of a big run. Lightly-raced with just three career runs, but is taking a step forward each time. Third at Taunton last time out was a good effort and the step up in trip here will help. Softer ground is fine too and into a handicap for the first time should help. Should go well.

Optimistic Bias 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
14:15, Market Rasen

Nice winner at Uttoxeter last time out - up 5lbs for that. Stays well and had an ideal prep for this better race last time out. He knows where the winning post is and overall has a good strike-rate. More needed in this company, but heads here fit and well, plus full of confidence after last time so must have an e/w chance. Philip Armson, who rode last time, rides again and can claim 7lbs like last time too.

Ballinslea Bridge 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
13:45, Market Rasen

Fell early on last time out at Sandown - none the worse for that and had time to get over that. Returns to a course he's won at before (hurdles) and overall form here is good - 2-1-3, so that gives us hope. Trip and ground are fine too so if his jumping holds up then not without an each-way chance.

Jefferson Davis 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
13:35, Taunton

Had his issues in recent seasons and is returning here from another break - this time 315 days. Back over hurdles here too to get some confidence into him and has won on soft/heavy ground in the past. But hard to fancy after his time off so just be happy with a nice run and work from there.

Cherokee Bill  
Wed 30th Dec 2020
13:15, Market Rasen

Second run for us after coming from the Noel Meade yard in Ireland. Pleasing run on debut for us at Hereford last time when a close fourth. A few sketchy jumps that day but after a time off that was expected. Should be a lot sharper this time and gets in here off the same mark and on this softer ground the drop back in trip will be fine. Several non-runners help our cause, so each-way chance.

Darebin

Masterdream  
Wed 30th Dec 2020
13:05, Taunton

A horse that came to us from the John Oxx yard in Ireland. Down the field on hurdles debut for us at Sandown earlier his month so much more needed to trouble the judge here. But will gain more experience here and one step nearer getting a handicap mark. Looks between the O'Brien and Gordon horses.

Zhiguli 
Wed 30th Dec 2020
12:35, Taunton

Travelled well and won with a big in hand last time out at Huntingdon. Up 7lbs for that makes life harder and Niall can only claim 3lbs here (7lbs last time). So, goes without saying more on his plate here and the Mulholland runner looks a big danger, but the horse is well and taken that last race well. Big weight, but over this slightly shorter trip that will help - especially on this heavy ground. Looks to have a big chance though and we'd be disappointed if he's not going close.

Gently Spoken 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
19:00, Southwell

Second runner in the race and of my two has the more to prove. Yet to win a race (or be placed) from 7 tries, but is down another 2lbs this time and has improved for her last run as that came off a 2 month break. Back in trip here to 6f is fine, but we'd like to see more on the track really.

Gossip 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
19:00, Southwell

Got off the mark on third run for us since coming from the Martyn Meade yard. That came here so the surface is fine and we feel the step up from 5f to 6f is worth a crack after staying on well the last day. More needed as up 4lbs, but that looks fair enough and can be expected to improve too with that last outing coming off a 4 1/2 month break. Jonathan Fisher rides again and is able to claim 5lbs too. Should go well and looks to have a decent e/w chance.

Giogiobbo 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
18:30, Southwell

Only had four runs for us but is a nice horse that has been rated as high as 100 in the past. Therefore, looks well handicapped on that form off a mark of 74, plus with Jonathan's 5lb claim. Also returned to form last time here over this trip, when a very close second, so a repeat of that run (off the same mark) should see him be bang there again.

May The Sixth 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
18:30, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us. Winner at Wolverhampton three starts back but has failed to build on that since. Has acted okay on this track twice before and 3lbs lower, plus Luke Morris riding this time helps so not without each-way claims, but if pressed, our other runner in this contest - Giogiobbo - heads here off the back of a better recent run.

A Pint Of Bear     WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Scott and another TQ View winner this month too.


Tue 29th Dec 2020
17:30, Southwell

Looks one of my better chances on the day. Won well here back in October and wasn't disgraced last time over 6f in a similar race to this. The drop back to 5f will help though as got tired in the closing stages the last day and raced a bit free over that longer trip - wanted to go faster. Has had a small break since and even though we've a bit to find with a few on these terms, his proven course form will be a big plus, and should be going close.

Headland 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
15:55, Southwell

Well drawn in stall 2, but hard to get too excited based on recent runs after finishing down the field here the last twice. Dropped another 5lbs helps and having been a bit outpaced over 7f we feel the step up to a mile will suit. David Probert takes over in the saddle and we hope the cheekpieces, that are on here for the first time, eke out more - but, as I say, we need to probably see it on the track first.

Bridle Loanan 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
15:45, Newbury

Top winner at Fontwell last time out - raised 8lbs for that though and also in a much better race (up a grade). Drop in trip will be okay though in these conditions and has less actual racing weight in this better race so that helps too. However, despite being well at home, might be a tall order to win, but small e/w chance if able to build a bit on that last run.

Coole Well 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
14:20, Doncaster

Coole Well hasn't won for two years, but he's consistently hit the crossbar, and is the handicappers dream horse as he rates every race around him......and never gives him a chance! He is an example of why there either needs a change in the handicapping system, or a shake up in the BHA race programme department so there is less reliance on handicap marks.  No doubt Coole Well will run his race again, and I'd bet he's 2nd or 3rd!

Sevarano 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
13:30, Newbury

Severano has won both his starts over fences this season jumping well on both occasions, he won his last race by a long margin but it was a race that fell apart in the end because of the fast pace they went on such testing ground. He has continued to school nicely at home since then and he is a decent work horse without being flashy.

Delighted with his win on debut at Sandown last time out - has come out of that race well and handled the heavy conditions that day really well so today will be fine. But much hotter race here and certainly won't be easy having to give weight to all the others. Therefore, with the penalty, will need to improve a bit, but still not without a small e/w chance.

Fitz Well 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
12:55, Newbury

A lovely young horse who ran well first time out - when fourth of 11 at Hereford. Has come out of that race well, but second run here in a hotter affair though so a lot more needed and he will want further in time.

Catfish Row 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
12:55, Newbury

Former Godolphin horse that came to us from France and the Andre Fabre yard - fair flat form over there but is having his hurdles debut here so expected to learn a lot. Has settled in well and fit and well having run on the flat back in October, but just nice to get going with him in what looks a fairly hot race.

Debece 
Tue 29th Dec 2020
12:00, Doncaster

Nice horse but has had his issues in recent years - returned from a long time off last month but was eventually pulled up on what was heavy ground. He's had almost 2 months to get over that and is 3lbs lower here. The ground should be fine and mark looking workable based on old form. Well at home and not without an e/w chance in an open affair.

Outrage    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Mon 28th Dec 2020
18:35, Newcastle

In good form at the moment after a close second at Lingfield last time out and only a pound higher. This looks a nice opportunity at a track he has a good record at (won here 4 times).

Duel In The Sun    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Charlie and the team.


Mon 28th Dec 2020
15:30, Newcastle

Duel In The Sun picked up a nasty injury after making a lovely debut at Newmarket in the summer, hence we haven’t seen him on a racetrack since. This race has been the plan for a long time and he is ready to run. He would be up there with some of the nicest horses I have trained so I am looking forward to seeing what he can do today in a race he should be winning.

Sashenka 
Mon 28th Dec 2020
14:00, Catterick

Fair flat performer that made a nice start to her hurdles career at Wincanton last month (2nd). Was well supported that day and justified that with a decent run. Probably bumped into a nice horse that day too in Little River Bay, who has since won again, so the form looks very solid. Has had plenty of time to get over that run and should be well-suited by the track here. Looks to have the Snowden horse to beat, but we get a handy 6lbs from that one and we are hoping that's the difference.

Anythingforlove    WINNER! winner

Powered clear to win well - looks a nice mare for the Snowden yard.


Mon 28th Dec 2020
14:00, Catterick

Anythingforlove won two bumpers last season, and put an unfortunate hurdling debut behind her to win last time out again. She carries a penalty here for that success and takes on a couple of interesting opponents, but she is a nice mare and is capable of defying that penalty.

Loco Coco 
Mon 28th Dec 2020
11:50, Catterick

Pleasing return run at Huntingdon last month (4th) after around 10 months off. Has come on for that run and gets in here on a 4lbs lower mark. Decent jockey booked in Connor Brace for this Conditional Jockeys' race and with just three career runs over hurdles we are expecting there to be more to come from him. 3 or 4 others, including Goldencard, with similar chances, but feel we've got a decent e/w chance here.

Bungledupinblue 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
17:40, Wolverhampton

Fair run last time at Kempton in a hot nursery. Drop back to 5f on a quick surface could help judging on her early season form Handicap mark is down to a workable mark and has a reasonable draw that gives her a chance if getting a decent run of things. Laura Coughlan rides too and is able to claim a handy 5lbs.

Ivaquestion    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Sun 27th Dec 2020

Badly hampered turning in at this track last time when seemingly going nicely and ran on well to finish third in the circumstances. Not proved he stays this far yet but run style gives him every chance to get home. Seems in good form and should be thereabouts with luck in-running.

CD winner here and 3lbs lower than last win, but last two runs have not been encouraging and until we see more on the track is hard to get too excited in what looks a very competitive event.

Red Poppy    WINNER! winner

Solid run to take third - looks a horse to follow still.


Sun 27th Dec 2020
15:35, Wolverhampton

Very rare that I run 3 horses in one races, especially when there are only 8 runners, but the race is worth 25k and all the horses deserve their shot.

Red poppy was impressive at Newcastle recently and looks well handicapped. This track and trip should be fine, and she should go very close as long as she has got over her recent win.

Very rare that I run 3 horses in one races, especially when there are only 8 runners, but the race is worth 25k and all the horses deserve their shot.

Nawafeth was bought recently at the 'horses in training' sale having won on her poly track debut last time out. She is a big filly but very clean winded is ready for a run. Her homework suggests she is well handicapped and I wouldn’t be surprised to see her go close.

Lady of Aran is a wonderful old servant, but was struggling with a foot issue last time she ran. She has had a clear run since then and has the class to run well. I won this race with a very similar type a couple of years ago

Debut run here today so can be expected to learn a lot from this. On a plus, we've a nice draw in 1 and he's been doing well at home and bred to like the AW surfaces. The betting suggests the Varian horse is well forward though so we'll be happy with a fair run here and getting the experience into him.

Kalahari Queen 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
14:45, Wetherby

Trappy little race with all four of the runners certainly looking to have a say. Kalahari has been second the last twice and stayed on well over this sort of trip at Chepstow (hurdles) last time out in a decent race. Wasn't disgraced that day as the winner looks a nice mare too. Back over fences here and ground here is fine and is a past course winner here at Wetherby too so being the only past winner here must count for something. Tight race, but our horse is fit and well - should not be far away.

Blazer Two 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
14:25, Wolverhampton

Only third career runs - didn't get the best of runs last time at Kempton so could have got a bit closer that day. Drop back to 6f here will help and a nice draw in stall 1. But will be more competitive once getting a handicap mark, which he will after this. Be a shock if Warrior Brave or Water Of Leith isn't winning this.

Moveonup 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
13:50, Wolverhampton

Won back in October but has failed to build on that since. Dropped a bit down the handicap again, but we are still 2lbs higher than that last win. Hoping the blinkers on here will help eke out a bit and draw 6 is fine. George Bass rides again and is able to claim 7lbs. But hard to fancy until we see a return to form on the track.

Caldwell    WINNER! winner

No match for the easy winner, but still a promising run from Scu's horse.


Sun 27th Dec 2020
13:35, Wetherby

A horse we got from Ireland - has average flat form for the Dermot Weld yard over there, but hoping he can be a better hurdler now. Schooled well and still lightly-raced so should be more to come. Soft ground is fine and this looks a nice place to start off. But there are a few with a bit more experience over the sticks - including the Nicholls runner, Hacker Des Places, so just be happy with a solid run, with small e/w claims in a race that lacks depth.

Jalwan  
Sun 27th Dec 2020
12:45, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us - fair flat performer (rated 76), and has schooled well in preparation for this. Tricky race to get too involved in with a lot of newcomers, but we are pleased with his 3 year-old and looking forward to seeing how he gets on over the sticks. Regardless is one to watch going forward.

 

Royaume Uni 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
12:45, Kempton Park

Former French flat winner. One of two in the race for us. Down the field on debut for the yard over hurdles at Sandown but the heavy ground didn't really suit. Has done well since and on this better surface and flatter track feel he can run much better. Hard to pick between our two in the race, but as mentioned not a race to get too involved in, but this horse is certainly better than last showing.

Let Me Entertain U 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
12:25, Wetherby

Didn't run too bad last time out - just got tired in the closing stages. Therefore, the slight drop in trip will help here and has improved for that run since. Acts well enough on soft/heavy so feel we've got an small e/w chance here, but really the Longsdon and Easterby runners are the ones to beat.

Rollercoster 
Sun 27th Dec 2020
11:55, Wetherby

Won well on first run for the yard at Bangor last time out. Up 11lbs for that win so a lot more needed here but has come out of that race well and could still not be too badly treated. Trip and ground are fine so if finding some improvement then should go well and have a leading e/w chance.

Diddly Do 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
15:50, Wincanton

Diddly Do is out of a sister to the useful Sgt Reckless, and is making her debut here today. She goes well at home and has been away for a racecourse gallop in the spring. All of our bumper horses this season have run well, but the majority have been placed on their debuts. She is a currently too big a price in my opinion.

Distingo 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
15:35, Kempton Park

Ran well at Kempton last time out when 4th so handles the track well. Gets in here off the same mark but in this better race also has a low weight so that will help. Well at home, but I'd say only a small e/w chance in is clearly a better race than he ran in last time.

Amarillo Star 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
15:30, Wolverhampton

Amarillo Star finished 5th last time out but that is half the story as he was beaten less than a length and flying at the death having missed the break. Step up to an easy 7 furlongs should suit well and he is well drawn.

Kchou Du Pecos Aa 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
15:13, Wetherby

Well down the field on first run back at Hereford last month, but that was his first run after a wind operation and also his first for a while. Dropped 4lbs for that and seems to have come out of that race well. The drop back in trip will also help as he seemed to stop quickly last time and clearly didn't see out the trip. Is certainly better than that last showing, so small e/w chance, but really just be happy with a better showing to give us something to build on.

Scorched Earth 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
14:55, Wolverhampton

Has shown bits of form in the past - winning over hurdles and on the flat in Ireland. Yet to sparkle for us from two runs though and only 3lbs lower than when well down the field at Southwell last time. Therefore, goes without saying we need to see more on the track before being more confident.

Lord Halifax    WINNER! winner

Another decent run from Charlie's horse.


Sat 26th Dec 2020
14:55, Wolverhampton

Lord Halifax bounced back to form last time out (2nd) having had a wind operation. Sharp 12 furlongs should be fine and he is well drawn. Should go well if coming forward from that nice run last time out.

Red Verdon 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
14:20, Wolverhampton

He ran a very good race last time pout at Chelmsford and was unfortunately beaten by the fact he almost carried a stone more than anything else in the race. This run is to help aim him toward the All Weather Championships final and we have put 3lb claimer Dylan Hogan on board to try and take some weight off his back. He is in good form at home and should run a nice race.

Early Morning Rain 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
12:59, Wincanton

Early Morning Rain has won a bumper, and two novice hurdles. She was a good 2nd on chasing debut and was 4th in a Listed contest on her latest start. This looks a touch easier than that, but its still a tight and competitive event. Placed chance again.

Il Re Di Nessuno 
Sat 26th Dec 2020
12:40, Kempton Park

Has it all to do really here on these terms. Nice horse, but has had his issues, hence not being on the track since Dec 18! Nice to get going again with him though but just hoping for a nice clear round and go from there.

Guinness Affair 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
15:35, Huntingdon

Come On Tier 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
15:15, Lingfield Park

Course winner so the track is fine, but well down the field last time here. That did, however, come off a long break so can be expected to come on for that, but a bit of a fact-finding mission here today as stepping up to 1m2f for the first time for us. We are hoping this might open a few new avenues, but overall just be delighted with an improved showing.

Sands Cove 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
15:05, Huntingdon

Has been a grand old servant and still shows plenty of enthusiasm at home so we've taken the big decision to let him run again. Tabitha Worsley schooled him today and he schooled like a chaser in his prime. He'll be looked after tomorrow but he might just roll back the years and run a big one.

Durouyn 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:55, Sedgefield

A fair bit to prove at the moment after some poor runs of late - including running no sort of race last time at Ffos Las when pulled up. Up in trip here to see if that helps as we certainly feel he's better than what he's showing. Plus also being 5lbs lower here helps. Like to see more on the track before being more confident though.

Engrave 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:45, Lingfield Park

Has been in great form recently at Chelmsford over 1m2f - she seems to have thrived at home since. She hasn't run well here in the past but that was over 1m4f, which is probably too far. If she gets the run of the race, should have a good e/w chance.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

Held on well for the Simon Dow yard.


Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:45, Lingfield Park

Regular round here and generally gets involved at this level. Reunited with previous winning rider who knows him well and should be thereabouts if all goes well for him.

Jersey Lady 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:35, Huntingdon

Jersey Lady won her first race, a bumper at Ludlow and followed up that win with a good run in a listed mares' bumper at Cheltenham when she finished a staying on well third. She is from a good staying pedigree and she already has some black type, which will make her a valuable broodmare at some stage in the future. A lovely filly at home, she’s very honest and straightforward, she loves her work.

Karlie 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:35, Huntingdon

Nice mare that is a former winning Pointer. Returned to the track back in October with a smooth win at Taunton in a similar race on first run for the yard. This is much harder now into a Listed race so will need to improve again, but the softer ground is fine (won a Point on soft/heavy) and deserves to take her chance. Taking on some other decent-looking types, but she is well and regardless what happens here is a nice horse to note going forward. The plan will be to go over hurdles soon.

Justicialism 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:15, Lingfield Park

Justicialsm made an encouraging debut at Newcastle recently and it looks like he has improved for that run. Annoyingly we are drawn out wide which makes life tougher but the majority of the field have not run before so hopefully we can put our experience to good use.

Tazka 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
14:05, Huntingdon

Won nicely on second go over fences. Seems to have taken to chasing well. In good form but is returning from a lay-off over a shorter trip.

Mukha Magic 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:45, Lingfield Park

Ran better last time at Kempton over this sort of trip, when a fairly close fifth. Down another 2lbs for that and is starting to look better handicapped, but is still 6lbs higher than last win. The horses seem well though and has never run on the AW here at Lingfield so the change of track might help in mixing things up. Luke rides and not without e/w claims.

Zhiguli    WINNER! winner

Top winner for the Moore yard and another TQ View winner this month.


Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:35, Huntingdon

Ran a nice race under heavy conditions last time at Lingfield. Should improve for the experience and will have an e/w chance.

Counteract 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:35, Huntingdon

Has strengthened up a lot and can be competitive off his mark. Concern is the going as by far his best run was at Kempton on good-to-soft and that is probably what he wants.

Bells Of Peterboro 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:35, Huntingdon

Lovely horse, but returns from almost a year off, when last seen winning on Boxing Day at Market Rasen. Had a few issues since but nice to get going with him again. Does return on an 8lb higher mark though and might just improve for this run. But is still lightly-raced with just 8 career runs and feel there is more to come from him, but I suspect after a few runs are under his belt. Recent winners, Project Mars and Dragonfruit, might be hard to beat. 

Espion De Saflo 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:35, Huntingdon

Disappointing horse. Has dropped in the weights so that helps and may have an outside chance based on that.

Heavens Bill 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:15, Lingfield Park

Two average runs so far so hard to fancy on these terms. Will be better once handicapped, which he'll get after this third run.

Waikiki Waves 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
13:05, Huntingdon

Consistent sort who won well latest at Leicester. Up 6lbs for that but the jockey helps today by taking 7lb off his back. Reamins in good form and okay on this softer ground - good e/w chance.

Glen Mooar 
Tue 22nd Dec 2020
12:05, Huntingdon

Second run here today towards getting his handicap mark - ran well last but ultimately will want a lot further in time and also a fence!

 

Scale Force 
Mon 21st Dec 2020
17:25, Newcastle

Just the one win from 21 starts and that came in Dec 18. Has, however, run well in last three runs and is down a pound and more importantly dropped in class here too. First run at Newcastle too to see if the change of scenery helps but win-to-runs record suggests he's more of a e/w play.

Briac 
Mon 21st Dec 2020
15:35, Lingfield Park

Long time since last seen on the flat but after some poor showings over the sticks of late then trying to freshen and mix things up with this 9 year-old. Low weight helps and so does George's claim so can't totally rule out off this mark which he's won off on the flat in the past (Kempton). Seems well at home, but recent runs suggest we'd like to see it on the track again first, with Jens Fella and Gold Standard looking the most likely two to fight this one out.

Lady Dauphin 
Mon 21st Dec 2020
15:25, Newcastle

Third in last three starts so has been knocking on the door. She didn't really see out the 1m2f last time at Chelmsford either so the drop back to a mile is a big positive, while that last run also came off a 2 month break. 12 runners, but looks a race of two halves, but we feel we are in the main half of those with a chance - each-way.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Only just missed out, but still a top run from Gay's horse.


Mon 21st Dec 2020
13:55, Newcastle

We are the only CD winner in the field so the return here is a bonus. Dropped 2lbs from his last run but George Bass is back on this time to claim 7lbs too so 9lbs lower than last time. Won in this grade back in July too and despite an open race we head here with a decent chance - should go close.

Clockers Corner 
Mon 21st Dec 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

First run for us so really a bit of a fact-finding mission here today. Only had one previous run on the AW too but the plan is to find out a bit here and keep him ticking over before hopefully going back over hurdles.

Prince Rock    WINNER! winner

Ran a cracker for Simon.


Mon 21st Dec 2020
12:30, Lingfield Park

Regular here but all victories have been over 7f. Reunited with rider who knows him well but this is tough for the level and will need a career best to win but dangerous to overlook completely.

Productive 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
16:45, Southwell

Is a recent purchase and has run once for the yard so we are still learning about him. He has run his best race so far at Southwell so we know he handles the surface and 7f seems ideal. Drops in grade here and Dylan Hogan takes off a useful 3lbs. Hopeful of a better run today.

Capla Spirit 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
16:15, Southwell

Spring Romance has been flying high at the moment so that horse might be hard to beat. But is up again in the weights and can't keep winning - surely! Our horse is well at home though and also comes here in great form after a decent second here last time out over this trip. Same mark and George rides again to claim 7lbs - should be thereabouts with a nice e/w chance.

Samovar    WINNER! winner

Yet another place finish for Scott's consistent sprinter.


Sun 20th Dec 2020
15:45, Southwell

Most people know about this horse by now - always tries and loves it here at Southwell. 20 races without a win (Dec 19), but never far away in his races and that was the case here last time out when 1 1/4 lengths behind Duke Of Firenze, who we meet again. Much better off at the weights though with that horse this time and after a string of near misses deserves to get his head in front - should not be far away. Each-way.

Giogiobbo    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Scott.


Sun 20th Dec 2020
15:45, Southwell

Fair AW performer having won 9 times before. Only fourth run for us though so still finding our feet a bit with him but is certainly looking well-handicapped on old form having been rated as high as 103 in the past (74 here). First run here at Southwell so the new venue and surface could spark him back to life. We are also dropping him back to 5f here after running way too free over 7f at Wolves last time back in July. Does return from a 5 month break though so will improve for this, but with 5lbs also coming off with the jockey's claim is hard to rule out off this mark - each-way.

No Anxiety    WINNER! winner

Landed the e/w money.


Sun 20th Dec 2020
15:20, Fakenham

No Anxiety is a nice young horse, but the penny hasn't really dropped with him yet. He showed up well on his bumper debut and has shown glimmers of hope in a couple of novice hurdle runs, but might be better off in handicaps in the spring after he's strengthened up further.

Getaway Suzy 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
15:20, Fakenham

Shows ability at home but has been off the track for a long time however and entitled to strip fitter after today. Should put in a reasonable effort but might be best-watched on first start.

Episode    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Sun 20th Dec 2020
14:50, Fakenham

I am hoping for a more respectable run from Episode today. Been doing some decent work at home and if she runs to her hurdle mark she should be close. I would think place claims if we have a solid round of jumping today.

Bolt N Brown 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
14:20, Fakenham

Only fourth run over hurdles and has won once. But was down the field last time at Doncaster so needs to bounce back from that. Tom Bellamy takes over in the saddle so that helps and we are 2lbs lower here. The drop in trip should also help as got tired over that 2m3f distance last time and the tighter track here should also help. Small e/w chance.

Gorhams Cave    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for the Gary Moore yard.


Sun 20th Dec 2020
14:20, Fakenham

GORHAM'S CAVE has run well here at Fakenham the track seems to suit him and as long as the ground remains relatively good with no rain forecast I would have thought decent claims today. Enjoying his work at home and appears to be very well in himself.

Habanero Star 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
14:15, Southwell

Nice draw in 2 but yet to win from 6 runs and needs to improve on her last run here when down the field. On a plus, that came off a small break and we feel the step up to 1m is worth a crack, while she wasn't the best away last time. With a better break and if the longer trip can bring out some improvement then hopeful of a better run, but the in-form Tony Carroll and Mick Appleby runners might be tough to topple.

Alrightjack 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
13:45, Fakenham

Alrightjack was a good novice hurdler, but rather lost his way last season. He has put in two promising chase runs this season, but the handicapper hasn't missed them and he has gone up another 3lbs for coming 3rd last time out! This looks an interesting, albeit competitive race for him, but if he can build on last time out, then he should go close despite the handicapper's harsh treatment of him.

Saturn n Silk 
Sun 20th Dec 2020
12:45, Fakenham

Yet to win a race but has some nice form to her name. Needs to learn to settle a bit better as been taking a hold in her races and that's meant she's not quite been getting home. But the tight track here should suit on that score and might make her hard to catch - we'll that's the thinking anyway! Tom rides and should make a bold bid and even though the Murphy and Wadham horses are feared, hopefully she can get off the mark here.

Maxine    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Harry's horse.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Only had four career runs, but took a nice step forward last time out here over this trip (3rd). Had 2 1/2 months to get over that run with a nice little holiday and is well for that at home and certainly going the right way. Luke Morris rides her for the first time and should have every chance. The Mark Usher horse looks the obvious danger.

Olivers Pursuit    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gay.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
16:30, Wolverhampton

Was a neck winner here last month and up 4lbs for that looks fair. That was his first career win (12 runs) but seems full of confidence at home now after that win. George, who rode last time, is in the saddle again to claim 7lbs so all is in place for another decent run - should have a great chance and hopefully he can follow-up. 

Tinsmith 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
15:40, Lingfield Park

Didn't show much form on the flat previously but he is massive and has needed time. Unfortunately his hurdling career started badly as he fell at the first and broke his ribs. He's taken ages to get back but his confidence over hurdles isn't there still - so is running back on the flat here to hopefully rejuvenate his career.

Botox Has 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
15:35, Ascot

Nice horse that has done well already this season - got a bit hampered last time out at Newbury but was probably beaten at the time anyway, but still did well to run on for fourth. Had 3 weeks off since and softer ground here is fine. Each-way chance but just feel he's got a lot of weight here in what is a very hot and competitive race.

Dadsintrouble    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
15:15, Haydock

Not won since Haydock 2017, but a horse that's had his issues over the years. Looks on a fair mark at the moment too and ran well (travelled well through the race) up to unseating his jockey last time at Market Rasen. Returning here to a course he's won at too. Trip is fine but the only niggle would be the heavy ground so that would be a concern. But with there signs the horses are running a bit better then we feel he'd have a small e/w chance if getting through the ground.

Beat The Breeze 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
15:10, Lingfield Park

Pirate King    WINNER! winner

Another nice run from this TQ View pick.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Is unbeaten at Lingfield and clearly loves the track (3-from-3). I was delighted with his reappearance at Kempton as he bumped into a very good horse and I am certain my fella is better going left-handed as he has never run well at Kempton. The favourite could be anything but my fella has more experience, which will help us.

Electron Bleu 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
14:05, Haydock

Blew away the cobwebs at Wincanton last time out and has certainly come on for that run. But thrown in a bit in the deep end here in a hot race. On a plus we get in here off just 10-7 in weight and Charlie takes a further 5lbs off so that will help to hopefully make him competitive. Softer ground than last time will help too and certainly has bit and pieces of form that could see him run well, but a place might be the best we can hope for in what looks a hot affair.

Early Du Lemo 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
13:50, Ascot

Ran a cracker last time out at Sandown to be a neck second to another of ours - Darebin. That came off a long break so can be expected to improve for that too. Up 5lbs and slightly longer trip here in a better race so more needed, but gets in with a very light weight (10-1) and be fine on the ground. Stamina to prove but we feel he'll stay. Hot race, but probably our best chance of something on the day, albeit each-way.

Not Another Muddle 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
13:50, Ascot

Did well last season, but was last seen being pulled up at Cheltenham in March in the Brown Advisory so is returning from a break here. Has done well over the summer and is as fit as I can get him for this return, but still feel he'll benefit from the run, so only a very small e/w chance.

Northern Beau 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
12:55, Haydock

Second runner in the race for us but certainly heads here with a chance too. Is rated 7lbs higher than Nada To Prada and has a lot more experience. Ran far too free last time at Cheltenham in a decent race but that was her first run back after a wind op and we gave her 2 months off after that. May have liked slightly quicker ground though but is fit and well and should make a bold bid from the front. 

Nada To Prada    WINNER! winner

Another nice win for Scu's horse.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
12:55, Haydock

One of two in the race for us, but they are at least from the same owners so two chances at this prize. A nice mare that won well at Ffos Las last time out in this sort of ground and has now won three of her four races. Will relish conditions again here and had a month to recover from that last run. Clearly another step forward needed in this better race (Listed) and the Noel Williams and Kirby runners are big players too. But we know she acts well on the ground and is well at home. More needed but deserves to take her chance and looking forward to a decent run.

Smiths Cross 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
12:30, Newcastle

Ran better than finishing position suggests at Chepstow last time out over a much shorter trip. Up in distance here but has run well over 2m4f in the past and is a winning Pointer over 3m so hopeful the trip will suit. Likes to race up with the pace and it's encouraging that the form of his last run is working out okay - the third, Enzo D'Airy, won well at Ascot yesterday. Open race, but feel we've got a decent e/w chance.

Roundabout Magic    WINNER! winner

Solid e/w run.


Sat 19th Dec 2020
11:45, Lingfield Park

Regular performer here and multiple winner. Needs them to go fast and have luck in running but on the right mark, top jockey booked who has won on him before and well drawn. Everything in place for a big run.

Fairy Fast 
Sat 19th Dec 2020
11:45, Lingfield Park

Nice draw in 3 and starting to look well handicapped on old form, so can't rule out - has run a close second here off a 10lb higher mark in the past. But we are returning off a small break so no matter what is expected to improve for this.

Sognatore 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
17:45, Wolverhampton

Showed promise on debut but this is a big ask from a wide draw (12) against a couple of previous winners.

Krystallite 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
16:45, Wolverhampton

CD winner here and well-drawn in stall 1, but has been a bit out of sorts recently and needs to show some old sparkle before being more confident. On a plus, has been dropped to a low mark and is now 13lbs lower than last win - but that came in June 18 (16 runs) and been freshened up with 3 months off. Can't rule out at this track and off this very low mark and could surprise at a fair price.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
15:45, Southwell

Up 8lbs since last win which will make life harder. But ran well here last month over this trip and been running well this season, so should be competitive. Had obvious e/w claims though in a tight contest.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
15:05, Ascot

Kiltealy Briggs was a good novice hurdler last season, and had a good reason for flopping in the Albert Bartlett as he ended up in hospital that evening having colic surgery! Back after a long summer holiday, he ran well to be 2nd in a Graduation chase on his chasing debut, and had a Grade 1 winner back in third that day. What was even more impressive, was that was over 2m, and the step back up in trip looks sure to suit. This, however, is a deep Grade 2 with some promising young talent in opposition. That said, I'd not swap our fella though.

Timely Gift    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w return for this TQ View pick.


Fri 18th Dec 2020
14:55, Uttoxeter

Didn't quite see out the 3m2f trip last time out at Warwick, so the drop back slightly in trip will help. That was also his first run back from a fair break so can be expected to some on for it and has also since had a wind op. First run over fences here today too - but schooled well and this has been the plan. Sporting the tongue-tie here too to help with his breathing and will be more at home on the softer ground. 8lbs higher than last win, but seems well at home and sending him chasing has always been on the cards and hopeful he can improve for a fence. As I've said recently there has been a bit of a bug going through the horses, but we are hopeful we are over the worse now, but can't totally be sure until we see more on the track from the runners. If that's the case though, Timely seems very well at home and could run a big race. Each-way.

Monbeg Aquadude 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
14:55, Uttoxeter

Had his issues, with only career win coming back in 2017 at Ffos Las. Had a wind operation since his last run and down in grade here in what looks a very average race. Softer ground is fine too and well at home but just happy to get him back on the track and build from there. But in a poor race not without an e/w chance.

Gently Spoken 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
14:40, Southwell

Had four runs for us since coming from the Martyn Meade yard and strangely been 7th each time! Is 3lbs lower here and we've been tinkering with her trip - running her over 5, 6f and 1m. So, to keep that up we are trying her over 7f this time! Does have a bit to answer, but her first try over this trip gives us hope of improvement off this lower mark and with Jonathan's 5lb claim.

Editeur Du Gite    WINNER! winner

Another fair run - just getting a bit tired late on, but still plugged on well for second.


Fri 18th Dec 2020
13:55, Ascot

Seems well at home after two fair runs this season. If coping with the ground and allowed his own way (likes to lead), should have every chance here after running well at this track two runs ago (second).

Ar Mest 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
13:55, Ascot

Second runner in the race for us. First run of the season for this 7 year-old in a tough race - so we feel best watched on this occasion.

Diamond Brig 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
13:45, Uttoxeter

Dark Shot 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
13:30, Southwell

Well known sprinter at this sort of level these days that is taking his racing well. Third in a competitive race here last week - beaten just 3/4 of a length by Duke Of Firenze, who we take on again. We gave that horse 8lbs last time and this time we actually get 3lbs, so hoping that will favour us this time, but as we know in these sprints it doesn't always pan out that way. Luke Morris take over in the saddle and in a race with three of the 6 runners recent winners and the other three having all been placed in the top 4 last time out, then it's set up to be a tight affair. Should not be far away.

College Oak 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
12:45, Ascot

College Oak won a bumper last season, a novice hurdle on seasonal debut and a handicap at Ascot on his latest start. The step up in trip here, on softer ground promises to suit and to bring about some more improvement but this looks a very competitive race. He should run his race, and might be a bit of each-way value.

Headland 
Fri 18th Dec 2020
11:55, Southwell

Drawn well in 1 helps, but more needed based on last run when well back on first run for us at Lingfield. Does have winning form when with Martyn Meade though and still only had 7 career runs. We are hopeful this first run on the fibresand will suit and being dropped 5lbs and in grade from last time helps. Feel he's better than last run but we'll find out more about him here.

Parikarma 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

She has had a long break since her last run to help freshen her up and looks to be in good form at home. It has been a long time since she last ran so she may well need it and being drawn fourteen is an obvious concern. I am hopeful of a nice first up run and Ryan Moore riding is an obvious bonus.

Juan Les Pins 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
19:30, Chelmsford

He went so close on his stable debut for us being pipped a nose in a good race at Newcastle. This looks a good option for him and he remains in good form at home. We have decided to add a hood to keep him relaxed and have stepped him up to seven furlongs as we felt he was doing his best work late. He should be competitive and I am hopeful of another strong run. He has drawn well in seven and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

Red Verdon 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

He has been in great form all year and has never put in a bad performance. This looks another nice option for him although he is carrying 9lb more than anything else in the race. The one to beat on paper look to be the lightly race Kingswear of Charlie Appleby's and the likes of Nate the Great and Kings Advice should never be underestimated. He has drawn two and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

Timoshenko 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

Was a prolific winner on the flat before coming over hurdles. He won on hurdling debut but hasn't gone forward since. A return to the level might bring about some improvement.

Global Art 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

He has been in good form of late and ran another good race last start in a slowly run affair to finish 4th behind a former listed winner in Outlander. He has come out of this race well and is in good form at home. This does, however, look a tougher option on paper with the 93 rated and ever consistent The Trader looking the one to beat on paper. We have drawn well in three and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
17:45, Southwell

11 runs without a win still but they do say every horse has it's day! But only a pound lower than last time when well down the field here and hard to be confident until we see more on the track.

Calm Down 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
16:35, Southwell

Didn't get home over 1m6f last time so can put a line though that. Is back to 1m4f here, having won over this trip two runs ago at Kempton. Rated 4lbs higher than that run and first run at Southwell but we feel it should suit. We are also putting the blinkers on for the first time to help her focus - if taking to the surface than not without small place claims in what looks an open affair - but only 7 runners so just 2 places on offer for the e/w.

Cordarosa 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
16:20, Chelmsford

Nice filly but debut run here today so will learn a lot. Luke will help teach her in the saddle, but hard to see beyond the Hills horse that's already had four runs and set a decent level - be delighted if we can take 2nd or 3rd behind the hot fav.

Wrynner 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
15:40, Hereford

Debut run here today for this 4 year-old. Backward sort though, who will come on for the run.

Avantgardist 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
15:05, Hereford

Was in the process of running a big race last time at Ludlow when got badly hampered by a faller. Lost all chance after that, but is none the worse for it. Dropped back in trip today but that will be fine in this much heavier ground. We are also putting Millie on today to claim a further 3lbs so with a bit more luck in-running can go well with a fair e/w chance. In-form Sexy Lot is the clear one to beat but is up another 15lbs for her last win so that gives us hope so with little depth to the race and all the focus on if the hot favourite can cope with the rise in the ratings then feel we are a fair e/w alternative.

Cobh Kid    WINNER! winner

Pleasing run from Scott's runner.


Thu 17th Dec 2020
14:50, Southwell

Didn't run too bad on debut at Newcastle - that came over 6f but showed plenty of pace there so the drop back to 5f looks a good move. Has come out of that race well and with that experience can be expected to take a step forward here. Jonathan rides again and helps by claiming a handy 5lbs. Each-way claims.

Caltex 
Thu 17th Dec 2020
14:40, Exeter

Ran much better last time out at Ascot - just getting a bit tired in the closing stages and his jumping let him down a bit that day too. This looks an easier race though today and he's down 2lbs as well. Ground and trip should be fine and if he can jump better then he shouldn't be too far away.

Hijran  
Thu 17th Dec 2020
14:30, Hereford

Gossip    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take this for the Dixon yard.


Thu 17th Dec 2020
14:15, Southwell

Third run for us since coming from the Martyn Meade yard. Wasn't the best away last time so actually did well to beat 5 others home, but that came back in August. Dropped 4lbs for that and first run here at Southwell but with around 4 1/2 months off is expected to improve for this.

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

Gained a much-deserved first career win.


Wed 16th Dec 2020
20:05, Kempton Park

Frustrating that he's not won yet - gone close a few times. Ran into a well-handicapped sort last time out in Pearl Beach so might not be bad form. 1m4f trip is fine and we get in here off a much lower racing weight (8-9). Probably the Palmer horse to beat, but should go well.

Maazel 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
19:05, Kempton Park

Been running okay without winning but is dropped a few more pounds here so that helps. Draw 13 doesn't help though so going to be hard from there and is returning from a fair break (320 days), so despite being fit and well will improve for this.

Maysong 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
18:35, Kempton Park

He has shown some very good form here particularly last year when he was victorious her in a competitive affair. This looks a good option for him and the ones to beat on paper look to be the John Best and Simon Pearce trained runners. He has drawn 9 and P J McDonald takes the ride. 

Enough Already 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
18:35, Kempton Park

Ran well on debut for us last time at Wolves - only beaten 2 lengths into second. Into a handicap here so we'll learn a bit more today re his mark. But the horse is well and has come out of that last race well, while draw 7 is okay. Small e/w chance.

Honours 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Nice filly but first run today so like a lot of mine on debut will improve for the experience, while a high draw in 10 makes life harder.

Toronado Grey    WINNER! winner

Much better from Gary's horse and looks one to follow once into handicaps now.


Wed 16th Dec 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Two average runs to date so more needed, but will gain a handicap mark after this and be better for that. On a plus, we've a top draw in 1.

Wake Up Harry 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
16:30, Kempton Park

Strong, well made colt who trains well. Sure to come on for the run but has done plenty of work and been to the track a few times. Top rider booked and well drawn though these are always tough contests.

West On Sunset 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
15:30, Newbury

Probably not a race to get too involved in with so many newcomers. Sunset has had the benefit of a run though so that will help. Slight drop in trip will be better too after getting tired late of over further last time and the softer ground is fine. Small e/w chance, but the betting suggests the O'Brien and Channon horses might be the ones to beat.

Rafiot    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary and the team.


Wed 16th Dec 2020
15:20, Lingfield Park

Decent third last time out here and gets in here 3lbs better off with Rhys' claim. A similar performance should see him go close.

Flaminger 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
14:55, Newbury

Raced too free last time and over that longer trip had no chance of getting home. ack in trip here should help as they will go quicker and dropped a few pounds in what is also a slight drop in grade. Each-way claims.

Fortune Finder 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
14:45, Lingfield Park

Looks one of our best chances on the day. Ryan rides too. Was a nice winner at Chelmsford last time on his third start and despite going up 5lbs for that should have more to come. Needs to overcome the 10 draw, but over this 1m2f should have plenty of time. Can hopefully hit the back of the net for his owner - Harry Redknapp again.

Kilfilum Cross 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
14:30, Ludlow

One of the stable stars but hasn't been firing this season yet - but more of a Spring ground horse. Has had a few excuses though with the trip being on the sharp side last time at Doncaster, but the time before ran flat at Cheltenham so does need to rediscover his form. Down another 2lbs from that last run and has won at the course before. Seems well at home and hoping the return to this venue will spark him back to form on the track but really after the last recent runs it would probably be better to see that on the track first and he's likely to have a break and returning for his preferred time of the year in the Spring.

Feodora 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
14:20, Newbury

After finishing second in a point to point on her debut Feodora hasn’t enjoyed the best of luck, she slipped up in a bumper and then ran poorly in two further races where the ground was pretty grim and she was unable to handle it at that stage of her career. She is a good looking mare from a solid family that has plenty of winners in her pedigree. She’s an honest mare who enjoys her work and she has schooled nicely.

Apollinaris 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
14:10, Lingfield Park

Not beaten far on stable debut over 5f when never quite being able to get on terms. Slightly longer distance should help and no surprise to see him involved at a big price.

Generous Day    WINNER! winner

Ran a much better race for the Henry Oliver camp.


Wed 16th Dec 2020
13:55, Ludlow

Bit to prove at the moment after a few poor runs since returning to the track. Dropped another 5lbs is a plus and gets into this better race with a very light racing weight (10-4) so we seeing if the rise in class will actually help re the weight. Ground and track are fine, plus the drop back in trip is okay too as that will help in the softer ground - small place chance but would probably like to see more on the track before being more confident with the horses running a bit in-and-out at the moment. Last year's winner - Caid Du Lin - and the Nicholls horse look the main players.

Republican 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
13:10, Newbury

Diable De Sivola 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
13:10, Newbury

Pulled up the last day at Sandown after making some mistakes during the race. Has schooled well since, but needs to jump a bit better on the track so be happier once we see that in actual race conditions.

Durdle Door    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but a step in the right direction after just 3 career runs.


Wed 16th Dec 2020
13:00, Lingfield Park

Ryan riding so an obvious plus - took a step forward last time out when a fair fourth at Chelmsford over 6f. Stepping back up to 7f this time should be fine. Just be happy with a step forward again but another that will benefit from a mark - which she'll get after this third run.

Zankala 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
13:00, Lingfield Park

She has shown some promise on her first two start and I am hopeful she will continue her development here. Luke Morris takes the ride.

Islas Dream 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
12:40, Newbury

Another race the Henderson yard should be taking - Isla's Dream is a former Point winner but down the field on both starts under rules so far. Will be better once getting a mark.

Williamdeconqueror 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
12:20, Ludlow

Pulled up last time on only second career run - will improve for getting a handicap mark, which he'll get after this.

Albert Van Ornum 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
12:10, Newbury

Fair flat performer that came over from France. Has settled in well, but first run over hurdles here today though so will learn a lot and looks a race the Henderson yard will be taking with the first two in the betting.

Prince Percy 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
12:10, Newbury

Second runner in the race for us - beaten favourite last time out at Plumpton after not running his race. We feel e's better than that, but need to see more consistency on the track before being more confident.

Pure Bubbles 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

Average debut at Goodwood back in September, but still learning and will be better once handicapped.

Good Luck Charm 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
11:30, Lingfield Park

Not getting any younger at 11, but still showing up well in his races. 4 lengths to find with Emerald Fox based on his last run but slightly better off here and wasn't the best away that day. Small e/w chance.

Small Pianist 
Wed 16th Dec 2020
11:30, Lingfield Park

Has struggled in maidens but should find this race today much easier. He is definitely capable of winning off this mark but I have a slight question mark over the trip as I am not sure what his optimum distance is.

Productive 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
19:40, Wolverhampton

Trixie Waterbury 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
19:40, Wolverhampton

Improving with each run and did so again last time here when a close third. Into a handicap for the first time helps and another bold bid looks on the cards. Does have a much wider draw here (10) than last time (5) and the Carroll horse - Doctor Nuno is probably the one to beat. In a race with little depth away from the favourite and with our proven track experience we must have a fair e/w chance.

Mymatemarmite    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but ran on well to take second.


Tue 15th Dec 2020
18:10, Wolverhampton

Just three career runs but has shown up well despite not winning. Ran on well over 7f last time out at Kempton so the step back up in trip here will help and we've a top draw in 2. Going to be hard for us all to beat the Haggas runner, but another of ours today that looks to have an each-way chance if building on opening efforts.

Blow Your Horn 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
17:10, Wolverhampton

Has been off for a while as he has been gelded and struggled with a few minor niggles. He is finally ready for a run and this looks like a nice starting point. Trip should be okay and I think the track will suit.

Red Poppy    WINNER! winner

Travelled well and another nice TQ View winner this month. 


Tue 15th Dec 2020
16:20, Newcastle

Was bought at the 'Horses In Training' sales recently and has come to band very quickly. She shows plenty of speed at home so I felt it was worth trying her over slightly shorter than her previous trainer (Haggas) has been running her over. We also feel Newcastle (first run here) should suit.

The Game Is On 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
16:05, Wolverhampton

Winner in this sort of race back on turf late Summer and has run well when conditions allowed subsequently. Wide draw no help but is a course and distance winner and no surprise to see him involved if things go smoothly for him.

Nora The Xplorer 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
15:25, Catterick

Nice mare, but debut run here today in a race that is hard to call with so many newcomers and unexposed sorts. Won't disgrace but likely to improve for the experience.

Kloud Gate 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
15:05, Wincanton

Slightly disappointing last time - but it was his first time on the track for 678 days. Hopefully can improve on that and finish a bit closer today off a 3lb lower mark.

Shattered Glass 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
13:20, Catterick

Returns from a break and has also had a wind op during that time off. Still only had three career runs but a former winner Pointer so chasing has always been the plan. Should also be more competitive now into a handicap and has schooled well for this. Tom rides so every help from the saddle and even though he'll come on for this is not without an each-way chance.

Esprit De Somoza 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
13:05, Wincanton

Second runner in the race for us. First run of the season. Has been doing well at home and fair form fresh in the past. As long as the ground is not too soft for him, should have every chance with a nice weight of 10-9.

Eragon De Chanay    WINNER! winner

Ran well to plug on for third.


Tue 15th Dec 2020
13:05, Wincanton

Failed to get round in this last two attempts. Had just over a month to get over the last fall and seems well as a result. Returning to a track he's won at (hurdles) so that should help and hopefully a clear round today will see him thereabouts with a light weight.

Detatched 
Tue 15th Dec 2020
12:20, Catterick

Nice winner at Uttoxeter last time out and despite a 6lb rise in the ratings has come out of that race well. Softer ground is fine but is up almost half a mile in trip here so a bit more needed. We help again though with the jockey being able to claim 7lbs for this amateur riders' race. Should be thereabouts.

Mont Kiara 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
20:10, Kempton Park

Not enough pace for him last week over 7f and getting a bit long in the tooth but worth another try. Has run well here before and blinkers back on. Wide draw no help but a remains a lively outsider at this level nevertheless.

Madame Peltier 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Is improving nicely at the moment and this drop to a mile and good draw gives her plenty of pluses. Callum won on her last time and I would like to think she is still ahead of her mark.

Hector Loza 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Well handicapped on early form and gelded since last run. Has some good form here, is well drawn and has a top rider booked so could run well down in grade if things go nicely for him.

Celestial Bliss 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

First run for us after coming from the Kevin Ryan yard - we'll learn more here but only had 5 career runs so should have more to come, but tough draw in 12 so really just hoping for a nice run and hopefully we'll find out a bit about him today.

Fuwairt 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

On long losing run and rising nine now. Good horse in the past though and change of scenery may do him good. E/w chance in competitive affair.

Treble Clef 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Had a small break since his last run at Salisbury when 6th of 13 and not beaten far. Dropped 2lbs for that helps and George Bass booked to ride to claim 7lbs too so 9lbs better off. Nice draw in 2 as well helps so small e/w chance.

Twentysharesofgrey    WINNER! winner

Top call from Simon.


Mon 14th Dec 2020
17:00, Kempton Park

Was runner up here twice over this trip earlier in her career and appears back after a short break. Should be fit enough to do herself justice and this is probably her easiest assignment yet. However wide draw could affect her if things don't fall right for her.

Star Dreamer 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
16:30, Kempton Park

Needs to improve again to take this race today but the trip and track should suit well. Life will become easier too when she is able to run in a handicap.

Chain Smoker 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
14:58, Plumpton

Nice winner at Fontwell back in January, but this is his first run of the season. Probably best watched on this occasion - expected to improve for the outing.

Gentleman's Dream 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
14:58, Plumpton

Second runner for us in this race. Promising fifth last time after a very long time off (3 1/2 years) which should see him have every chance today, if acting on the ground, plus is 2lbs lower this time.

Dadsintrouble 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
14:40, Ffos Las

Darkest Day 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
14:23, Plumpton

Very disappointing last time at Fakenham, but had a few excuses and is better than that. If putting that run behind him, should have every chance.

Electron Bleu 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
14:07, Ffos Las

Benevolentdictator    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this month.


Mon 14th Dec 2020
13:53, Plumpton

Top win on chase debut last time out. Hopefully he can follow up his recent win at Lingfield. He should enjoy the ground and stay the distance, plus has had 2 1/2 weeks to get over that last run. Another tight little race, but looks one of our better chances on the day.

Little Awkward    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice sort for the Sherwood camp.


Mon 14th Dec 2020
13:18, Plumpton

All the horses in this race cost less than 30k, Little Awkward won his bumper nicely at Fontwell and then finished fourth under a penalty at Exeter. The form of the Exeter race has worked out well. We sent Little Awkward to Laura Collett to do some pole work a few weeks ago as he could be quite flippant over his hurdles. He has come back a lot sharper and is know economical over his hurdles. I backed off him a little after Exeter and gave him time to freshen up again, he's been in great form at home and hopefully he'lll run a nice race.

Guguss Collonges 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
13:18, Plumpton

Another trappy little race with the Sherwood and Williams horses respected. But any reasonable improvement from his last race at Newbury in this slightly easier race should give Guguss Collonges a chance.

Clockers Corner 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
13:02, Ffos Las

Full Back    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary.


Mon 14th Dec 2020
12:48, Plumpton

Trappy little contest where Acey Milan could be tough to beat. Any chinks in his armour should give Full Back a chance though as well at home.

Bells Of Barnock 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
12:32, Ffos Las

Buckos Boy 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
12:15, Plumpton

Bucko's Boy won a bumper and was 3rd under a penalty. He has the ability to win a novice hurdle before progressing, but is bound to improve for this hurdling debut. Not sure he'd want the ground to deteriorate too much, so I am pleased its the first race. The favourite might be hard to beat, but we should be there or thereabouts at the business end.

Ballydoyle    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Mon 14th Dec 2020
12:15, Plumpton

Tough race - Annual Invictus looks a good thing in the race so really Ballydoyle e/w claims at best.

Bembridge 
Mon 14th Dec 2020
12:15, Plumpton

Bembridge runs in the Novice Hurdle at 12:15pm. Bembridge ran a creditable fifth in a bumper at Fontwell on his first run. The form of that race has worked out ok, he has come back from that race well and has been schooling nicely at home. I do think he'll appreciate further in time when he's stronger but this looks like a nice race for his hurdling debut.

Compadre 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
15:30, Southwell

Light of Air 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
15:20, Lingfield Park

Draw 11 not ideal but return to Lingfield is a plus after running a fair third here two runs back. 3lbs lower for that too and even though an inexperienced rider on today, he's a nice jockey and his 7lb claim helps. If getting the breaks from the draw then not without a chance of hitting the frame at a price, being this looks a very average contest.

Ocean Drifter    WINNER! winner

Great TQ View winner and looks another nice type for the Oliver Sherwood yard.


Sun 13th Dec 2020
15:00, Southwell

Ocean Drifter managed to ground out a win last time out at Fontwell after a very promising debut over hurdles at Uttoxeter when finishing second. He wasn’t hugely impressive but the trip was on the short side for him and a win is a win at the end of the day. He was very keen when he arrived at Rhonehurst, hence why I began him over 2m even though he’s going to be a stayer and Kai has done a good job of relaxing him but he still needs to chill a bit more to truly fulfil his potential. This will come with racing, he’s getting there.

Star Of Screen was a bit unlucky over course and distance last time out and got caught in a pocket at a bad moment. With a clear run she would have been third and this looks a weaker race to me

Cossack Dancer 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
13:55, Southwell

Cossack Dancer ran okay in his bumper when finishing seventh, it was nothing special but he was very gawky and green, so there is a lot of improvement in him. He does think life is all a bit of a game at this stage, he has schooled well at home, so hopefully, he’ll now knuckle down a bit, but whatever happens he is likely to continue to improve with experience.

Outrage    WINNER! winner

Top run and only just failed, but e/w money landed.


Sun 13th Dec 2020
13:45, Lingfield Park

Probably not his ideal track here but looks a winnable race and Hollie got a good tune out of him a couple of starts back.

Moosmee 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
13:15, Lingfield Park

Only shown modest form since joining us and too free last time. Return to sprinting might help and much better handicapped now so could go well at a big price.

Nobel Leader 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
12:55, Southwell

Finished tamely last time out but the handicapper has given him a chance dropping 4lbs, while the drop in trip may help him too. Each-way chance at a course he's won at before too.

Cheers Delboy 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
12:55, Southwell

Needed the run here last time - down 4lbs for that helps and has improved for it at home. Softer ground is fine too and should have more to offer with just 7 career runs so small e/w chance in what looks an open race.

Tractor Fred 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
12:20, Southwell

Has been placed several times over the last year but hasn't got his head in front. He probably needed his seasonal debut and his first run post wind op. He's not the quickest, but should keep galloping - so should run his race again today.

Desert Marathon    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Charlie at 50/1.


Sun 13th Dec 2020
12:10, Lingfield Park

Desert Marathon behaved appallingly at Kempton and blew all chance of running a decent race as a result. Her behaviour was a bit of a surprise to us but we have taken measures to keep her calm before the race and I am hoping we see a different filly today.

Heavens Bill 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
12:10, Lingfield Park

Fair debut run here last month but still very much a work in progress horse that will learn more again here. Looks between the Charlton, Teal and O'Meara runners really.

The Warrior 
Sun 13th Dec 2020
11:40, Lingfield Park

Tricky horse to catch right these days but certainly more than capable in a race like this - especially as he's dropped another 2lbs from last time. Drawn 9 but that should be okay as likes to come off the pace and the return to Lingfield helps. Is now 5lbs lower than last winning so must have an e/w squeak based on that if getting the openings at the right time in the straight.

Golden Dragon 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
19:15, Wolverhampton

Golden Dragon has had a wind op since joining my yard and today is very much a fact finding mission. His work at home has been nice and his current mark looks very workable but he has a lot of questions to answer. We are well drawn which is important

Elusive Polly 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:42, Hereford

Ran below-par last time out on debut at Exeter as a beaten favourite but is better than that and we feel the longer trip here will help. Also will be more at home on this softer ground as got a bit out-paced on the quicker surface last time. She also gets a handy mares' allowance (7lbs) from the other three and that will bring her right into the mix. Looking forward to a much better run - in what looks a very trappy 4-runner affair - and hoping our track experience will help against 2 of the 3 other rivals that are having their debuts.

Jersey Bean    WINNER! winner

Fair run from Oliver's horse.


Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:15, Doncaster

Jersey Bean is having a cracking season, he’s won his last two races and his confidence is sky high. He didn’t look convincing as a chaser before the application of blinkers, which were a recommendation of Henrietta Knight after she had him for two weeks of intensive schooling, and they have transformed him. He wasn’t a bad jumper before but he was too deliberate and he took too long in the air over his obstacles. Bean and Brendan have struck up a great partnership, they have confidence in each other and it’s lovely to see him enjoying his racing again.

Singlefarmpayment 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:15, Doncaster

A horse many people know well, but only second run for us after coming from the Tom George yard. Did well on first run for us when 4th or 10 at Sandown and dropped another 2lbs from that. Has also improved at home with that outing coming off a 312-day break and is starting to look extremely well-handicapped. Is probably best on slightly better ground though so hoping there isn't too much more rain, but should be fine as it is - if that's the case should go well. Each-way.

Three Ways 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:07, Hereford

Fair bit to prove at the moment with some average runs this season. Down 4lbs more there and Ben takes off 7lbs so that helps and this looks a poor race so can't totally discount with last win coming off 13lbs higher. Trying the blinkers for the first time here too to see if that helps, but really just be happy with some improvement here.

Three Colours Red 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:07, Hereford

Pulled up the last day at Chepstow but that came after a fair time off and just needed it. Had plenty of time to get over that race too and Charlie takes off 5lbs this time too so we are 8lbs better off and is back down to last winning mark. Does need to bounce back from that last run but in what looks a poor race would not be shocked to see him run better than odds suggest.

Goshen 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
15:00, Cheltenham

Probably one of the best horses we've ever had. Back to Cheltenham today and can hopefully make up for what happended here in March. We think he'll benefit from the run no matter what happens, but he's in very good order and been doing plenty of work for this. It's obviously a hot race with some other big names in so it's impossible to be totally confident, but we'll see if he's good enough in this sort of company today and if he's up to the task then he will hopefully be off to even better things.

Carnwennan 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
14:20, Newcastle

Carnwennans form has plateaued since impressing in the Northumberland Vase last year - however, he has had a lot of problem physically that have held him back. I feel like I have him back to as good as he has ever been. He is moving great and seems like a different horse mentally. He loves Newcastle and hopefully he bounces back to form in an extremely hot race.

Cape Robin 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
13:57, Hereford

Former winning Pointer that is lightly-raced with only two runs under rules, but thrown in at the deepend here on chase debut against three useful sorts. Fit and well though and has schooled nicely, while the plan has always been to go chasing. Just be delighted with a solid run and obviously a completion and go from there, but it was nice to see the horses running better yesterday and Charlie's 5lb claim a plus.

Benatar    WINNER! winner

Top run back from Gary's horse - one to note.


Sat 12th Dec 2020
13:50, Cheltenham

Benatar has been off the track a long time so I would say best watched today. Grade 2 winner at Ascot a couple of years ago and Benatar performed well here at the Festival in in what used to be the JLT but that was a few seasons back.Hopefully after losing his way rather he will put on a decent performance today. Had a public gallop at Newbury a couple of weeks ago and Benatar did come on for that.

Mr Palmtree 
Sat 12th Dec 2020
12:47, Hereford

This is a step up in class for Mr P, and he will need to up his game. He is well at home and if all goes to plan he could go close.

Samovar 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
17:15, Southwell

No hiding place for this horse these days - rarely runs a bad race but does seem to find a few too good in his races. Loves the track and the surface an was another fine third here in the week. Same mark here, but up in grade so we've a lot less racing weight to carry - just 8-4. Drop back to 5f no problem either so should be in the shake-up again. Each-way.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Fri 11th Dec 2020
17:15, Southwell

Third runner in the race for us. Down the field last time at Lingfield but the return to Southwell will help and is also dropped a few pounds too. Tough sprinter that's been around the block and ran well to be 3rd in a similar race here two starts ago off a 2lbs higher rating - if running to that level again would have every chance of being involved in a race with many many chances.

Crosse Fire 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
17:15, Southwell

Another runner in this race for us and they all look to have similar chances is a very open sprint. 126th run for this 8 year-old and has had a good time of things again recently with four top 4 places in as many runs. Drop back to 5f maybe not quite in his favour despite being a CD winner, while is 5lbs higher than his last win. Can't rule out, but very open race and might just find some younger legs too fast over this 5f trip - we'll see.

Asgoodasitgets 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
16:45, Southwell

2 year-old having it's debut here today - hopeful he'll act well on the surface but very much first day at school today and expected to learn a lot and need the run.

River Sprite 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
16:15, Southwell

Put up a decent effort over course and distance when second last time out - this is a deeper race but should be involved again. 

Mustang Alpha 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
15:25, Doncaster

Mustang Alpha is a nice horse. He has been progressing well over hurdles to date and won nicely last time out. This looks a deeper race with some in form rivals, but they are stepping up in class too, and I think 16-1 is an absolute steal......

Kingswell Theatre 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
15:00, Cheltenham

Won the Cross Country race here last month in great fashion and has come out of that race well. That was his second win over this course and loves these fences. Looks an easier race than last month with no Tiger Roll or Easysland, but as a result we've a lot more weight to carry - only had 10st last time. But he's very well and another bold bid from the front on the cards - we are also the only proven CD winner in the field, so that must count for something over this unique course.

Exodela 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
14:05, Bangor

Exod'ela suits a big field handicap, and ran well to be beaten only 3 lengths at Cheltenham in October. Off this mark, he can win again, but needs the race to work out for him. A fast run race would be ideal, but a small runner race doesn't always help in that regard. This is a qualifier for the £50k Challenger Series Final, and that is the end of season aim.

Hard To Forget 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
13:30, Bangor

Has come on a lot for his return run at Hereford last month. Is down 3lbs for that too and the step back up in trip is a plus. Loves heavy ground too and did well around this time last year so looking forward to a decent run. Probably the Skelton horse to beat but we head here hopeful of a much better run than last time. Each-way.

Madera Mist    WINNER! winner

A welcome return to form for the Tim Vaughan yard.


Fri 11th Dec 2020
13:15, Cheltenham

Returns from a wind operation so that should help and will run with a tongue-tie too. Only 10-0 to carry but is still running 5lbs out of the handicap and as I've said with most of my runners at the moment - many are running a bit below par and needing more outings than we thought so another note of caution here until the horses in generally are running better.

A Time To Shine 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
13:07, Doncaster

It’s not ideal to have two runners in one race but if the conditions suit both horses and the owners want to run, it happens. A Time To Shine is a big horse who has the most unbelievable scope, he will make a much better chaser but he needs racecourse experience and he is very much a work in progress.

Kaphumor 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
13:07, Doncaster

Kaphumor is a different horse in that he’s not so backward but he ran below par first time out for us at Chepstow, he came back with a really nasty overreach which took a while to heal hence why he hasn’t run since. He disappointed me in the way he travelled that day but I’ve no idea when he picked up his injury.

Norwegian Woods 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
12:55, Bangor

Another with a word of caution here after an average run on his return back in October. Dropped 5lbs from last time out though and the drop back in trip will also help. Again, just be happy with a solid run and small e/w chance, but really this race looks between two - Khairagash and Lex Talionis.

Clemencia 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
12:40, Cheltenham

Fell here last time out in a decent handicap but is fine after that and has since had a wind operation to help with his breathing. Will be better for that outing too and is a few pounds lower, but we are taking on the winner again here - Tegerek - and several other in-form rivals so really just be happy with an improved run and go from there.

Peur De Rien    WINNER! winner

Just failed by a neck but a much better run and one to note next time. 


Fri 11th Dec 2020
12:32, Doncaster

Peur De Rein won nicely first time out this season at Uttoxeter, it was his debut over fences and he didn’t miss a beat – it was an impressive performance and the form of the race has held up. He then went to Huntingdon and after an incident in the paddock he was at the start far longer than necessary, but this was just the beginning of his woes, because everywhere he went he found trouble and ended up pulling up. A few weeks later and seemingly unperturbed from that experience he ran at Warwick where he got into a brilliant rhythm before making one mistake at the first fence in the back straight… he then lost his head and pulled up again. Clearly the Huntingdon experience affected him more than we realised, he is a confidence horse but he has plenty of ability and he can jump, so frustrating is an understatement. I don’t know what will happen today, he’s been in great form at home and he’s been much more relaxed in his last few pieces of work so we’re hopeful rather than confident.

Jembug Drummer 
Fri 11th Dec 2020
12:20, Bangor

Pulled up last time out at Ffos Las but would have needed that run and the 3m trip that day stretched him. Back significantly in trip here will help and will be better for that last run. Course winner here too so that helps and Charlie's 5lb claim help but many of mine are running below par at the moment so we'd like to see an overall improvement on the track with our runners before being more confident. But certainly feel he'll have come on for that last outing and small e/w claims at a venue we know the horse likes.

Valletta Sunset 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Ran well on AW debut last time with Shane Kelly riding - he advised that we put blinkers on him and step him up to 1m2f. So if this brings any improvement it should put him in the mix - he does have the ability to do better, so just hoping these tweaks help.

Delcia 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Lightly raced but could win a race like this. Big outsider but has ability so needs to get her confidence on the way round.

Nightswimming 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
19:30, Chelmsford

Seemed to just not get home over 1m3f last time at Kempton so the drop back to 1m2f here will help and we are also on an easier track here today. Still learning too with only a handful of runs so looks to have a fair e/w chance. But the John Best runner - Tebay - looks well-handicapped to us and that might be the one we've all got to beat.

Global Art 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

He was too far back last start and made some good ground late to finish fourth. He has been in good form at home since this run and has some very good form at Chelmsford. This looks a good option for him and the ones to beat on paper look to be Power of States, who has won his last three, and Big Country, a former listed winner, but he is steadily dropping down in grade. He has drawn well in three and Jamie Spencer takes the ride.

Mont Kiara 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
17:30, Chelmsford

Well handicapped these days but has not run for some time. Bit long in the tooth but retains ability and no surprise to see him involved at this level.

Chica Del Dia 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
17:00, Chelmsford

Shown nothing so far on the track but trains well and just needs to put it together. This is shorter than ideal but struggles to get in anywhere so she has to take her chance. Might go well at a big price.

Devonshire Rocco 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
15:32, Warwick

Devonshire Rocco is a good looking son of Shirocco who is from a good jumping family. He is a good workhorse at home but as with all of my bumper horses he will improve for the whole experience and my main priority is for him to finish his race well and to enjoy his day out.

Book of Gold 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
15:02, Warwick

Book has been a disappointing and inconsistent horse since his novice hurdle season, he does have ability but unless things go his way he isn’t the most resolute these days. He won this race twelve months ago and the ground today will be more suitable than on his debut at Southwell. where he never travelled, he is wearing first time blinkers so let’s hope they bring about the necessary improvement. He was once a bit of a lad at home but he’s good to ride now and it could be that he needs a change of scenery so we will reassess his future after today.

Chimes Of Dylan 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
15:02, Warwick

Dropping handicap mark helps and is now 3lbs lower than last winning over fences. Another that needed the run last time on his first run back for around 10 months and had a month to get over that run. Well at home and can't totally rule out off this rating if finding some old form. Small e/w.

Oneida Tribe 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
15:02, Warwick

Had a pleasing return after a long time off, but has had a slightly interrupted follow on. He likes Warwick, and as long as the interruption hasn't got in his way could run into a place.

Invicta Lake 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
14:32, Warwick

Down a few pounds for his last run at Exeter when running a fair 5th of 14. Not getting any younger at 13 but still enjoying his racing. Handles the soft ground well and Rex Dingle helps by taking off 3lbs too. Is 8lbs lower than last win so certainly capable of out running his odds, especially with just 10-1 to carry, but will need to keep tabs on them during the first half of the race.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
14:32, Warwick

Former Point winner but has yet to score under rules. Showed good form back in 2018 but has had a few issues and just the two runs since. Returned last month at Southwell but ran way too free that day and used up too much energy. With that run under his belt then the freshness has hopefully been taken away. Will still need to settle better so we are trying the tongue-tie to help. We are also 3lbs lower here and also have Charlie Price claiming 5lbs, but overall just be happy with a better showing and go from there. 

Monbeg Theatre 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
14:15, Taunton

Has been a prolific winner over the years. He's been a better hurdler but finally opened his account over fences earlier this season. He jumped out to his right around Sedgefield last time out and in the process surrendered any chance. Back on a right-handed track he should run another solid race here, but might be vulnerable to some younger legs. 

Iconic Muddle 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
13:57, Warwick

Rounded off last season with an easy win at Plumpton over hurdles but the plan has been to go chasing since. Has done well over the summer and schooled well in recent weeks for this. This looks a good place to start, but his jumping will need to be spot-on here as some of these fences can be tricky. Drop in trip is fine - stays further - and that will help too as does have his fair share of weight. Looking forward to getting going with him and if his jumping holds up then every chance.

Admirals Bay    WINNER! winner

Cracking winner for Henry and the team.


Thu 10th Dec 2020
13:42, Taunton

Took a big step forward last time out at Exeter with a decent third at a big price. Dropped a few pounds for that helps and being that was only his second run back from a break and a wind op will improve for it too. The first three in the betting setting a fair standard at this level, but with some slight improvement and if he gets his jumping together, then would have e/w claims.

Numero Uno 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
13:42, Taunton

Hard to fancy after last run when down the field at Hereford. But that was the horse's first run back for a while so needed it and will have certainly have improved for it - in fact it seems he's come on no end at home and is well treated, so no shock to see him run better than odds suggest. Chapati and Passing Shadow look the obvious ones though so really just be happy with an improved run.

Gyllen 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
13:10, Taunton

Decent flat horse in France - placed at Group level - so a nice recruit to the yard. We've not had the horse long but has schooled well and looking forward to seeing where we are with him. Ground will be fine and should be okay over this trip, being a winner over 1m2f on the flat. Will probably lack for not having a recent run and improve for the experience but a nice sort. We'll learn a lot about the horse here but we hope is one to look for going forward. The Harry Fry horse - Boothill - looks the one to be with.

Minella Royale 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
12:52, Warwick

Minella won his only race, a point to point in Ireland, easily and he was then bought by Trevor Hemmings for 100k that was two years ago. He originally went into training with Paul Nicholls who experienced on-going lameness issues with him, this culminated in him having several bone chips removed from his knees last spring. He joined me in the autumn and then when Mr Hemmings decided to cull his string he went through the sales ring where I bought him back for 15k. Obviously the operation he had worked and we’ve not had any problems with him since he arrived here in August. He works nicely at home, he’s not flashy he’s a proper galloper who will stay further than this. He has done plenty of work and he’s as fit as I can get him but he is bound to be sharper for an outing.

Glen Mooar 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
12:52, Warwick

First run for us, and this is very much just part of his education. Ultimately he will be a three mile chaser but he has to learn his job first and this is day one at school.

Jersey Wonder 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
12:37, Taunton

Jersey Wonder had good staying flat form when trained by Jamie Osborne, his owner Tony Taylor has horses with us both so Jersey Wonder moved to me a couple of months ago. Initially I sent him to Clairey and Chris Bonner to have a couple of weeks away from Lambourn and whilst there Claire did some grid work and show jumping with him. He took to it quickly and he’s got a good jump in him, plenty of scope. He’s done plenty of schooling with us since he came back from there and he’s improved each time but more importantly he enjoys it. He was a thorough stayer on the flat so this trip may be on the short side for him but it will give us a chance to asses him to see where we go from here.

Espion De Saflo 
Thu 10th Dec 2020
12:07, Taunton

Cosmelli 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
19:25, Kempton Park

Fit and well, plus ran a great race last time out when a close fourth at Chelmsford. That came off a 3 month break so can be expected to have improved for that and the extra distance will help too - up to 2m. Open little race but the Gosden and Charlton horses probably the ones to beat though and might be a tall order against those.

Mukha Magic 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
18:55, Kempton Park

Been running in some hot staying races this year - is back in trip here today so will need to keep tabs on them during the first half of the race, but has run well over 1m4f the last twice he's tried it at Southwell. Quicker track here today but the horse is well and wasn't beaten far last time out over 1m6f - just getting tired in the closing stages. Looks competitive for the grade though and taking on some in-form rivals so only a small e/w chance really - anything else a plus.

Note Bleu    WINNER! winner

An improved run from Gary's horse.


Wed 9th Dec 2020
18:55, Kempton Park

Step up in trip will help this evening after being outpaced over a mile last time. Should go close and looking forward to an improved run.

Vanity Affair 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
17:55, Kempton Park

Vanity affair had a bad injury as a 2yr old which is why he is only just making his racecourse debut. I have been very pleased with his work at home but expect him to improve significantly for this race today

Deputy 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
17:25, Kempton Park

Deputy disappointed me last time but I think I made a mistake in stepping him up in trip and possibly he needed the run. Drop to 7 will suit and we are well drawn so hopefully he can go close.

Little Gem 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
15:50, Kempton Park

Little Gem is making her stable debut today and it’s very much a learning curve for us. Her work has been nice at home but she looks like she will be more competitive in handicaps after this race.

Filles De Fleur    WINNER! winner

Just got nabbed in the final strides but still a solid effort.


Wed 9th Dec 2020
14:45, Lingfield Park

Been disappointing since a good run here in August. This looks easier and hopeful of a good e/w chance.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

Battled on well to take third.


Wed 9th Dec 2020
14:15, Lingfield Park

All his wins are here and just denied in a similar race last time under today's rider. Should be thereabouts again if the race goes well for him and just a wide draw (10) as a disadvantage.

Tenfold 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
13:45, Lingfield Park

First run for us. Has worked nicely at home. If returning to some of his early runs, he may run well at a fair price.

The Dawn Man 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
12:55, Hexham

Last seen at Fontwell back in March - the track didn't really suit him that day and has had a nice break since. Handles the ground well and has won over this trip, but that did come off an 8lb lower mark so does need to prove himself off this mark. Gone well fresh in the past too and is well at home, so place claims, but the recent winner Asking For Answers looks the one to beat.

Cape Greco    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gay.


Wed 9th Dec 2020
12:45, Lingfield Park

Consistent sort at this sort of level - fourth last time out at Southwell over this trip and dropped a pound for that helps. George Bass booked to ride and he can claim 7lbs too and is a proven CD winner here. Only negative is the draw though really (12), so might need a lot of luck from there and a place might be the best we can hope for.

Passing Nod 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
12:45, Lingfield Park

CD winner that has a fair draw in 5. Only second run for the yard after coming from the David O'Meara camp. Okay debut for us here over this trip and despite coming 10th wasn't beaten too far - Pour La Victoire won that race but we are better off this time - 10lbs with that horse. Dropped 2lbs for that and Rhys can claim 7lbs as well. We are trying the visor for the first time to help him focus as did run a bit flat last time. We'll learn more again about the horse here but certainly feel he can improve on that last outing and not without place chances at a course he likes and in a race that looks only between 4-5 of the runners.

Come On Tier 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
12:45, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us and we don't think there will be a lot between our two. Back from a break as had some issues but is fit and seems to run better here at Lingfield - is a course winner - so the return here will help. Blinkers on for the first time and a top draw in 1. Revolutionary Man probably the one to beat but would not be shocked to see this one sneak a place at a price.

Corazon Espinado 
Wed 9th Dec 2020
12:15, Lingfield Park

Well handicapped nowadays on old form but been running some way below that for most of the year. Seems as good as ever at home and better draw back at a track he likes may well bring about a revival.

Crosse Fire

Won his 14th race here last time out and still going strong at the age of 8. Up 5lbs again for that and also up in grade here, but he did it well (2 1/4 lengths) and has come out of that race well too. Taking on three other recent winners too in what looks a tougher race than last time - so more on his plate, but no reason why he won't give it another good go at this favourite track. Each-way.

Ivaquestion 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
17:30, Wolverhampton

Got a bit behind last time at Lingfield and reunited with winning rider here. Looks to have the favourite to beat but lots in place for him to run well at this level and no surprise to see him involved.

Samovar 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
16:15, Southwell

Deserves to get his head in front after another couple of seconds - the form of his last run here has been franked though with the winner going in again on Sunday. A top AW record with 50% of his 50 runs being in the top three (5 wins) and loves it here at Southwell. CD winner that has won off a higher mark in the past so can't rule out - another bold bid expected in an open race and should be bang there. Let's hope he can gain a deserved win. 

Scale Force 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
16:15, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us - course winner that has returned to form the last twice here, being narrowly beaten each time. Same mark here but is up from 5f to 6f this time and does have a bit to prove at this trip with all three past runs over 6f finishing out of the frame. The horse is well though and hoping to eke out a bit more with the eyeshields and we know he handles the surface. Very open race, with all 9 having some sort of a say so a lot will depend on how the race plays out. Each-way claims.

Moveonup 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
16:15, Southwell

CD winner here but not been firing of late and only dropped a pound from his last run here at the end of November when well down the field. Having said that, has had a few excuses the last twice and fluffed the start last time and got hampered early on the time before. Did win in a lower grade three runs back here though so needs to find that level again, but is 4lbs higher this time. With a bit more luck then small e/w claims.

Silver In Disguise 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
15:17, Uttoxeter

Fair run last time behind a nice sort (3rd) and handles the soft ground - but was still just over 20 lengths back that day and likely to find the first 2 or 3 in the betting too good here. But gaining experience all the time and hopeful of another step forward here - but will also get a handicap mark after this so will be worth noting once he does.

Et Moi Alors 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
15:08, Fontwell Park

ET MOI ALORS has been a frustrating horse to train and needed his confidence boosted which we hope has been achieved, Would love to get this horses head in front today so if he can get into a decent rhythm - I hope he can show us what he is capable of. Still only six years old but he has taken a long time to fill that frame of his. Difficult to keep faith when ET MOI ALORS has had plenty of chances but I am hoping for a more positive result today

Mungos Quest 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
14:55, Wolverhampton

Longer distance maybe stretched him on two return runs and this might well suit him. Low grade affair and he should be competitive in races like this so could go well at a big price. Just needs to get his confidence and things go smoothly for him.

Antony 
Tue 8th Dec 2020
14:08, Fontwell Park

ANTONY has been a fantastic horse to train having picked up some decent prizes. Looked to have lost his way most of last season and his last win was here at Fontwell back in 2018. Softer than ideal today but ANTONY has looked to have regained his enthusiasm his last two starts finishing runner up both times. If in that same place today I think ANTONY will put in a solid effort and will have decent each-way claims.

Call Off The Dogs    WINNER! winner

That's the first three winners on the day for the Moore camp!


Tue 8th Dec 2020
13:35, Fontwell Park

I thought CALL OFF THE DOGS would go close last time out at Plumpton where he generally puts in a decent performance. It may be that the trip last time was a shade too far so this slightly shorter trip may be of benefit today. Fit and well and although can be quirky with this his third run of the campaign I hope he settles down and puts in a decent effort today but I think most of the field would struggle to get past Midnight Glance which looks to be on an upward curve. Each-way claims.

Bridle Loanan    WINNER! winner

Second winner of the day for Gary!


Tue 8th Dec 2020
13:05, Fontwell Park

I am hoping BRIDLE LOANAN will have come on for his recent run nearly three weeks ago at Wincanton. That run was after a long break on ground that was quick enough so I am hoping that he will shape up better today and be in with a shout at the finish.

Nassalam    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Gary's promising hurdler.


Tue 8th Dec 2020
12:35, Fontwell Park

NASSALAM made light work of his rivals last time out here at Fontwell when he won by the proverbial country mile. We know it worked out to be a weak race but he was emphatic in his victory and with little competition his attitude was good. NASSALAM has only had two runs under his belt so I am hoping that he will have improved for his last run and perhaps he may have more of a race today which will be good for his education. Very happy with him at home and looks to have an even easier chance with the Nicholls horse now a non-runner.

Beauty Choice 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
18:40, Wolverhampton

Won nicely over course and distance last time out and was clearly suited by the sharp 7f. He is well drawn again today and can go very close on a track that plays to his strengths.

Alibaba 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
18:10, Wolverhampton

Alibaba has had a little break since his run at Newmarket where he was unsuited by the heavy ground, he probably didn’t get the trip at Chester the time before so has had excuses for his last two runs, trying the tapeta for the first time which shouldn’t be a problem, small field will suit and runs well fresh, so will be interesting to see how he fairs in this grade

Quarry Beach 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
17:10, Wolverhampton

Only second run for us - formerly with the Henry Candy yard. Did better than finishing position suggested on debut here over this trip - only beaten around 5 lengths, plus she actually lost a show in that race too! Is off the same mark here but jockey, Dylan Hogan takes off a handy 3lbs this time and we've a much better draw in 1. Certainly feel the horse is capable of better if wanting to put it in so she can't be totally ruled out, but does have a bit to answer still as heads here being 0-from-20 now. Small e/w chance.

Chitra 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
16:40, Wolverhampton

Went very close over course and distance last week and this looks a slightly easier race but does have a tough draw (9).

Madame Peltier 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
15:55, Chelmsford

Won over course and distance two starts ago and then won the hard way around the outside at Lingfield last time out. This drop to 1m should suit and she has the plum draw (1).

Datsalrightgino    WINNER! winner

Nice performance from Jamie's horse.


Mon 7th Dec 2020
15:35, Plumpton

Datsalrightgino was 3rd on his racecourse debut in a race which has worked out well. He was green there, and is better than that bare results shows. He goes very well at home, and providing a newcomer isn't top class then he shouldn't be far off winning this race.

Robins Dream 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
15:35, Plumpton

Probably best watched as I have not rushed him to get to the track as he has always looked like he will need time. Lovely horse though and he will benefit for the racecourse experience today.

Mont Kiara 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
14:25, Chelmsford

Not run for a while but well handicapped these days and seems in good shape. Wide draw (10) no help here but might be able to hold his own at this level.

Chica Del Dia 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
14:25, Chelmsford

Shown nothing on the track but goes nicely enough at home. Needs to get her confidence but out of the handicap here and needs to start on an upward curve if she is going to have a career at this.

Quiana 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
14:05, Plumpton

QUIANA has been off a while but I am pleased with his progress and I am hoping that he is fit enough to do himself justice today. QUIANA has run in decent company and not disgraced himself so if straight enough I am hoping for solid each-way claims.

Thebannerkingrebel    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy with the only other rival falling at the first - still a nice run from Jamie's horse.


Mon 7th Dec 2020
13:00, Plumpton

Thebannerkingrebel was a Graded bumper horse and novice hurdler. He has come unstuck in a couple of top level handicaps, and now is the time to go novice chasing. He jumps well at home, and should take to it on the track. This looks a tight little race, and on ratings he'd have to improve, but its a good place to start his chasing career off, and he can build from here.

Fix Bayonets 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
12:30, Plumpton

FIX BAYONETS has had time away from the track. Ran a respectable 2nd on soft ground bumper debut in August but quicker ground next time out found him out rather. Hurdle debut and I will be pleased with a clear round and a respectable run as this race is not likely to prove rated in his favour. Probably best-watched today 

Right Hand Of God 
Mon 7th Dec 2020
12:30, Plumpton

RIGHT HAND OF GOD had his debut run over hurdles in January which was respectable but did not follow it up that well next run. Hopefully will have improved for time away from the track but he has been slow coming to hand. I do expect more from him today as he has been working well at home but may just come on for the run.

Habanero Star 
Sun 6th Dec 2020
13:46, Southwell

Still finding her feet after 5 runs, but does have time on her side and hoping to mix things up with her first run here at the track. Has handled soft ground well on the turf so hopeful she'll be okay on the fibresand and we are also putting on the eyeshields here today. George takes off 7lbs from the saddle too so that helps. But draw 10 not the best and is also returning from a 3 month break so might just need this to blow the cobwebs away.

Professor Galant 
Sun 6th Dec 2020
12:31, Southwell

Second here the last day and that came with the horse's saddle slipping too so was a solid effort. Dropping back to 5f here today too as took a bit of a hold over 6f that day so they should go a bit quicker, which will help. We know she handles the surface and George's 7lb claim here a further plus. Does, however, look a more competitive race than last time now into a handicap and the Baron horse - Attaboy Roy - might be hard to beat but with a bit more luck with the saddle this time we must have a fair e/w chance too!

Star Dreamer 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Down the field on debut here over 1m2f - still learning but we feel the step up to 1m4f will suit but really just be happy with an improved run and likely to be better once handicapped.

Landsman 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton

No great shakes over hurdles recently so is back on the flat here to try and mix things up and spark some form back into him. Light weight helps and doesn't have too bad an overall flat record but on recent runs hard to get too excited until we see more on the track.

Miss Zenlingus 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
17:00, Wolverhampton

She surprised us a bit on debut at Kempton when finishing a close sixth - beaten just under 2 lengths. Has improved for that at home and that experience will do her good. Nice draw in 2 and Dylan Hogan helps by taking off 3lbs again. A race that is hard to assess but if building on that last run must have a fair e/w chance.

Rosie And Millie 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
15:35, Sandown

Lovely mare that ran another top race at Ascot last time (2nd). The winner that day (Buzz) looks a decent hurdler in the making, so it might turn out to be a solid run. She still pulled 3 1/2 lengths clear of the rest and had some nice horses in behind that day too. Trip is fine and another bold bid from the front on the cards - plus, should be fine on the ground too. Another hot race though and we've all probably got another Henderson runner in Mister Coffey to beat but is well and could be dangerous off 10-9. Each-way.

Let The Heirs Walk 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
15:35, Sandown Park

Fair hurdler but we might be asking a lot here in a tough race. Didn't really get home the last day over 2m4f so the drop back to 2m will help and won well over this trip back in Sept. Likes to get on with things but with the likes of Totterdown in the race might have company up front. Light weight helps in the ground and we'll make a bold bid and see if we can stay there, but a hot race and liking to find several too good. Has handled soft before.

Thomas Macdonagh 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
14:32, Chepstow

Thomas Macdonagh was a decent novice hurdler last season, but always promised to be a better chaser. He ran well to be 4th on chasing debut this season where the ground wasn't soft enough for him, and he needed the run. This step up in trip looks sure to suit, on proper winter ground and he is in top shape. Should go well.

Thor De Cerisy 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
14:12, Wetherby

Has run well here before so that is one of the reasons for coming back here. Handles the soft/heavy ground well and a horse that's gone well fresh in the past. Been doing plenty at home for this and looking forward to a nice run. Should go well and have a fair e/w chance, but only 7 runners and two e/w places on offer.

GA Law 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
13:50, Sandown

Ga Law made it three wins from three starts over fences when bolting up in the Grade 2 Rising Stars Novice Chase last time out at Wincanton. In turn that took his career total to four wins from just five starts.  He is a fast improving and very exciting young talent. He has been doing his winning over 2m2-2m4, so this drop in trip is a bit of an unknown, and so too is the likely softer ground. However, his brother wanted that, and there is no reason Ga Law won't. This is a seriously competitive renewal of this Grade 1 with every horse unbeaten over fences to date - let’s hope we remain unbeaten!

Theligny 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
13:37, Wetherby

Bled (nose) last time on his return run at Sedgefield so had an excuse that day - therefore, really off the back of that just be delighted with a solid run. On a plus, will like the drop back in trip and handles the ground well, plus is only a pound higher than when winning back in Jan over this trip. We've given him around 1 1/2 months to get over that last race and he seems well at home. We are now the top-rated horse in the race but as a result he does have his fair share of weight which makes life harder in the ground. But does handle cut and 3 or 4 others in the race look to have something to prove too. With just the 6 runners now has a chance providing he has a bit more luck with his health in the race.

Trixster 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
13:22, Chepstow

Returned from a break last time to run well for much of the way and has certainly stripped a lot fitter for that. Just got tired in the final third of the race that day but a few pounds lower here helps and we are also returning to a track we know he likes being a past CD winner. Tight race, but should run better here and hopefully not be too far away.

Fifty Ball    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this month.


Sat 5th Dec 2020
13:15, Sandown

Probably our best chance of a winner on the day. Knuckled down well last time to win at Ascot. Travelled well through that race and seems well after a month off. We feel there is more to come from him with just three runs over hurdles so despite being 7lbs higher here should have every chance. Niall, who rode him last time to claim 6lbs rides again - can claim 7lbs this time.

Agamemmon 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:47, Chepstow

A race the Evan Williams and Venetia Williams yards have done well in over the years so their Supreme Escape and Elixir Du Gouet are respected. Our horse did well last season, but probably found the heavy ground too much on his last run at Catterick. Had a nice break since and been working well at home for this. Still 6lbs higher than last win but should have more to come and not without an each-way chance. 

Golden Boy Grey    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice sort for Gary.


Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:40, Sandown

Tough ask against the Henderson horse that should really be taking this, but our horse goes well enough at home and feel we'd have a chance of finising second here. Should be fine in the ground.

Mickyh 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:40, Sandown Park

Just the four runners here and looks like we'll all be playing for places behind the hot Henderson favourite - Grand Mogul. But our horse is a nice sort and the 6lbs we get from the favourite will help. Hard to know anything about the other two runners in the race but we feel we've certainly got a chance of contending for the silver medal here.

Triangle Rock 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:27, Wetherby

Down the field last time on his return run at Hereford over hurdles but the plan has always been to go over fences. Chase debut here today and schooled well for this. Small chance of nicking a place, but really just looking for a clear solid round and go from there.

Masterdream 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:05, Sandown Park

Fair flat form in Ireland from just four runs and has done well since coming to us - schooling well ahead of this. Last run was less than 2 months ago too so fit and well but, goes without saying, in a bit at the deepend here on debut over the sticks. A nice horse though and even though expected to improve for this is one to note. Handles soft ground well, but the Henderson horse seems to set a fair standard.

Hudson De Grugy    WINNER! winner

Solid call from Gary.


Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:05, Sandown

Nice horse being a former bumper winner in France. UK debut today and one of two in the race for us - both have a similar chances. A lot depends on how good the Henderson horse is, but I'd not be shocked to see one of ours give it a race. Of the two this one is probably the better jumper though.

Royaume Uni 
Sat 5th Dec 2020
12:05, Sandown

Second runner in the race for us and would have a chance too. Another French horse (flat) that is having his debut in the UK and for us today. A nice horse and regardless of what happens here will be a horse to note. Hard to pick between my two and could easily give the Henderson horse something to think about.

Juan Les Pins    WINNER! winner

Ran a cracker and only just failed to get up - another stride and he'd have won. One to note next time.


Fri 4th Dec 2020
17:15, Newcastle

This will be his first run for us here at La Grange since being purchased at the horses in training sale. He is in good form at home and it looks a good option for him here. There is a lack of pace in the race with Mohareb of Michael Appleby's the likely front runner and the one to beat on paper is the in-form Gowanland. He has drawn 10 and Tom Marquand takes the ride. 

Ruby Yeats 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
15:35, Sandown

Last seen winning at Plumpton back in March so returning from a break. But has been working well and if coping with the underfoot conditions, should have every chance, but did win on heavy last time so that gives us hope. Looks a nice e/w price.

Nora The Xplorer

15:25, Sedgefield

Point of Principle 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
15:00, Sandown

Bit to prove at the moment after some average runs, but will certainly be better for his last run on his first outing back for 8-9 months. Was a bit rusty with the jumping that day but will be sharper for that. Only a pound lower here and looks another tough race so really just be happy with a step forward here.

Manning Estate

Cherokee Bill

14:50, Sedgefield

Sevarano    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy - and another nice TQ View winner this month!


Fri 4th Dec 2020
14:40, Exeter

Sevarano won at Sandown on his debut over fences last month, his jumping was impeccable on that occasion and he has continued to school well at home so hopefully he can replicate that today. He is a tall rangy horse who has taken time to strengthen up in himself, he doesn’t look a lot different physically to how he looked as a four year old but he’s now able to finish his races properly, something he didn’t do as a youngster.

Ballinslea Bridge 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
13:50, Sandown

Tough race for his first time out so probably best watched on this occasion.

Early Du Lemo 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
13:15, Sandown

Second runner in this race for us. Back from a long break (689 days) after some issues, but a nice horse. Nice to get him back on the track and still only 7 years-old so has time on his side. If the time he has had off does not test his fitness too much, should have every chance.

Darebin    WINNER! winner

Cracking win and a nice 1-2 in the race for the Moore yard!


Fri 4th Dec 2020
13:15, Sandown

Tight little race and one of two in the contest for us. Down to a nice racing weight in a competitive race. A track where he runs well too so will hopefully see him back in the money.

Let Me Entertain U 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
12:55, Exeter

We are returning to the scene of his only career win so that should help - that was a bumper success last season. Made an okay start to his hurdling career at Ayr (4th) at the end of October but that would have taught him a lot and the form might not be too bad with the winner going in again since. Might be a big ask here though in what looks a competitive race but hopeful of a step forward and we know the track suits so that should give him some sort of an edge. Small e/w chance. 

Diable De Sivola 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
12:45, Sandown

Ran quite well first time - just finding the distance a little bit too far. That was also his first run back from a wind op and a 288-day break so we were more than pleased. Back in trip today which hopefully will see him thereabouts.

Howdilyoudo 
Fri 4th Dec 2020
12:35, Sedgefield

Howdilyoudo has been placed in all three of her career starts - she was 3rd in a bumper and been 3rd and 4th in two novice hurdles starts. She is unexposed, maturing, and improving. She can therefore be very competitive off this opening mark of 107, and she can be winning races of this nature. That said, 14 runners around this track has the potential to be messy, so a clear run is first and foremost what we are after and if she gets a clean passage through the race, then she shouldn't be far away.

Apollinaris 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

Speedy gelding who has run with promise in his native country. Will know more about him after today but could go well at a big price and sure to find his races.

Cafe Milano 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
16:30, Chelmsford

Runner up last two starts and his turn is about to come. Tough enough race of its type but the horse is in form and in good shape so sure to run well if things go nicely for him and obviously no surprise to see him involved.

Stormingin 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

15 races without a win now, but often placed and tries. First run at the track so a slight unknown, but no reason why it won't suit. Therefore, if acting on the surface and if able to overcome a bad draw (9), should have a decent chance as well at home and never far away in his races. Each-way

Lady Dauphin 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Steps up to ten furlongs after a couple of solid thirds over a mile since joining us, both time’s looking as if the extra distance wouldn’t be a problem, analysis of her stride patterns in her homework backs this up.

Kentucky Kingdom    WINNER! winner

Easy win for this James Evans runner and another nice TQ View winner too!


Thu 3rd Dec 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Seems to be starting to get more relaxed and confident now so should be thereabouts again with a clear run. Goes up 3lbs for last week's good effort.

It Fitz 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
15:45, Wincanton

Black Kalarosa 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
15:37, Leicester

Ran oaky last time after a long break. Probably needs to come down a bit more yet though as opening mark was harsh enough.

Furia D'oudairies 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
15:37, Leicester

Took a step forward last time at Plumpton (3rd) - gets in off the same mark and as long as the ground isn't too soft, should have every chance in a very open race. Each-way. 

Battleofthesomme 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
15:07, Leicester

Battleofthesomme won a couple of low-grade races for us last season, but then rocketed up the handicap as a result. He therefore struggled but is coming back down to a workable mark again. I've put blinkers on to help, and he shouldn't be far away here.....but as ever in these low grade races, you can't trust any of them!

Akkapenko 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
14:52, Market Rasen

Has run two respectable races in the last two months without winning. Only beaten 5 lengths last time at Huntingdon despite coming 7th, but we feel the longer trip here will be more in his favour. Ground is perfect and has also run well at the track before. Another open affair, with the Rose Dobbin horse probably the one to fear, but our horse is well and heads here with fair e/w claims.

Neff 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
14:45, Wincanton

Better run last time when third at Fontwell - starting to come back into form and has come out of that race well at home. No easy race here, but surely has decent claims off a 5lb lowe mark too. 

Adherence 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
14:22, Market Rasen

Needed the run last time out after some time off the track so will strip fitter here. Dropped 3lbs helps and eased a tad in grade so this will also help him. Is back down to last winning mark so can't rule out having a small e/w chance in a race with that seems to revolve around the in-form Pakie's Dream.

Corri Lindo    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Henry, albeit slightly surprising.


Thu 3rd Dec 2020
14:07, Leicester

Ran better than result shows last time out - lost all chance late on with some mistakes and then weakened. Slightly shorter trip will help and that run would have taken the freshness away after 6 months off. Softer ground is fine and has had plenty of time to get over that run (2 months), but still think best watched here as still a bit to prove around this sort of handicap mark.

Judex Lefou 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
13:45, Wincanton

Much better for his last run at Taunton after a break, but is still to win a race from 13 runs. However, on a plus has dropped another 5lbs in the ratings and having run well over this sort of trip in Ireland we feel the step up in distance is worth a shot. Ground was also way too firm last time so this softer surface will suit and we are trying the tongue-tie today to help with the breathing. Overall a bit to prove so probably a watching brief, but hopeful the longer trip can open up more chances.

Carolines Quest 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
13:22, Market Rasen

Still work in progress really with just four career runs. Fell at the first last time out at Uttoxeter so no harm done and is okay after that. On a plus, a light weight helps - but with having no sort of race there is expected to improve for this too.

Williamdeconqueror 
Thu 3rd Dec 2020
13:07, Leicester

First run over hurdles and will need to get a mark to be seen at his best. The Easterby, Bailey and Twiston-Davies horses should be fighting this one out!

The Warrior 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
20:30, Kempton Park

More than capable in a race like this. Not given the best of rides last time - had way too much to do and had no chance of making up the ground. Dougie Costello takes over here. Likes the track (CD winner) and drawn 8 of 10 not the best draw but is a hold up horse, but expected to be a bit closer this time. This also looks the weaker division of the two races and feel we've got a decent e/w chance here today.

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Didn't get a great ride last time out but actually did well to still finish only 3 3/4 lengths off the winner! Would have improved for that as it also came off a 3 month break. Likes the track (CD winner), but the negative is the draw (11). Going to be a big ask from there so will need plenty of luck in-running. If she gets it could sneak into the frame though as well at home and starting to look fairly well-treated on older form.

Lord Halifax    WINNER! winner

A return to form from Charlie's horse so one to note next time, for sure.


Wed 2nd Dec 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

Lord Halifax looked like a stayer to follow after taking this race apart last year, but since then it has been a struggle and jockeys have been blaming his wind at the races. He has had a wind op since and this has been his first race back since. Off the same mark as last year and this race has been the target for a while - hopefully we'll see the horse that took this prize 12 months ago.

Jeremiah 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

Jeremiah is extremely talented but also extremely quirky. This track will really suit him and he has had a nice break since the Ebor where he had had enough. Can easily run into a place at a nice price.

Red Verdon 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

Red Verdon runs in the Wild Flower Stakes today at Kempton over 1m4f. He has had a great year winning both a Group 2 and a Listed Race and this would be the perfect way to end a good season for him. It looks a competitive affair with the ever improving Johnny Drama the one to beat on paper. He has to carry a 7lb Penalty but I am hopeful will be good enough to compete. Ryan Moore takes the ride and is an obvious plus in the saddle.

Amarillo Star 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Amarillo Star was impressive at Goodwood after a while off the track and then ran a solid race at listed level last time out. Looks to have the Varian runner to beat but he has run well at Kempton before (CD winner) and can put in another solid performance.

Bungledupinblue 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Tough filly who has run well all summer. Big test for her today in hot nursery here today though. But if she runs her usual race she has small e/w chance.

Rose Ohara 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
15:45, Ludlow

Rose O'Hara is a half-sister to a 2m hurdle winner Rose To Fame, out of a bumper and multiple hurdle winner Cinderella Rose, who was a sister to the 143 rated Twelve Roses. It’s a wonderful pedigree from the family of the Stayers' Hurdle winner Rose Ravine. She goes nicely at home, but is bound to improve both mentally and physically for this run, but I'd be confident she can run a nice race here on her racecourse debut.

Galactic Power    WINNER! winner

Top run from Robin's 10 year-old.


Wed 2nd Dec 2020
15:10, Ludlow

First run back after a long break, acts very well on the track (Course winner), will come on for run, but still hopeful of a nice run back to give us something to build on.

Moosmee 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
14:45, Lingfield Park

Starting to look well-handicapped and this looks more suitable though big outsider here. Could easily run better than his odds suggest if he gets his confidence and the race goes well for him.

Stoney Mountain 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
14:35, Ludlow

Stoney Mountain was a Grade 3 winner over hurdles last season for Henry Daly, but he didn't have the most luck when unseating on chasing debut at Cheltenham when with the Daly yard. We've since bought him from the Trevor Hemmings dispersal sale in the autumn, and he has been schooling well over fences here in Lambourn. He looks a really exciting horse to go chasing with, and this looks a nice starting point for him.

Mrsgrey    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Henry's horse.


Wed 2nd Dec 2020
12:55, Ludlow

Yet to win from 11 runs but ran better last time out at Huntingdon. Only got tired in the closing stages and despite finishing 8th was only beaten 11 lengths. That was also her first run back from a wind op so can be expected to improve for it and has come out of that race well. This is also her first run over fences and that has always been the plan being a former Pointer. Has schooled well for this too and looking forward to getting her going over fences. Small e/w chance if her jumping holds out but also we'll be delighted with a positive and clear run.

Zankala 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
12:35, Lingfield Park

Zankala runs in the 1m Novice at Lingfield today. She ran an okay race first up (8th) when she was startled by the stalls and missed the break. She has come out of this race well and this looks a nice option for her. The ones to beat look to be the Roger Varian-trained Mystical Air, plus both the Owen Burrows and Ralph Beckett’s newcomers look interesting on pedigrees alone. Ours has a nice drawn in stall 1 and the in-form Hollie Doyle takes the ride.

King Athelstan 
Wed 2nd Dec 2020
11:30, Lingfield Park

Nice draw (1). CD winner here too and seems well at home. Down a pound for his last run here which was a bit of a fact-finding mission over 2m. Drop back in trip will be more to his liking here and should have every chance - definitely has good e/w claims. Adam Kirby rides. 

Beat The Breeze    WINNER! winner

Another win for this improving Simon Dow runner.


Wed 2nd Dec 2020
11:30, Lingfield Park

Progressive and looks to have a good chance here if he stays this trip. Good form at the track and winning rider remains on board so just needs things to go well for him and he should be involved.

Golden Force 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
18:30, Wolverhampton

Golden Force is very talented but extremely quirky. He has won over course and distance and is well drawn. He should go well

Chitra    WINNER! winner

Top call from Daniel and the team.


Tue 1st Dec 2020
17:30, Wolverhampton

Well drawn (1) in a competitive-looking heat - hasn't been far away recently and should be close here.

London Arch    WINNER! winner

Better effort from Charlie's horse.


Tue 1st Dec 2020
17:00, Wolverhampton

London Arch has regressed since winning his 2nd start and today we try something different with a big step up in trip. He has the ability, it’s just finding the key.

Cold Shoulder 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
15:32, Southwell

Unseated last time out but that was only at the second hurdle so no harm done. Is none the worse for that so out again after a few weeks off from the track. Been doing well at home since and is certainly looking well-handicapped in a race like this (97) having been as high as 117 back in 2019. Still only 6 years-old so has time on his side still so as long as his confidence hasn't been affected by that last run should have every chance in an open contest. Each-way.

Court Glory 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
15:32, Southwell

Twenty Twenty 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
15:23, Lingfield Park

Probably our best chance of the day. A tight little race with just 4 runners. Ground okay and stays a bit further than this so that will help in conditions. All 4 look to have a say in this flat jockeys jump race, but hopefully should have every chance with Danny Muscutt booked to ride.

Justicialism 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:40, Newcastle

Justicialism has landed in a tough maiden on debut but he is ready for a run and will love the track and trip. Nice horse for the future.

Connetable 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:32, Southwell

Seems to have his own ideas about racing at present but has ability to win off this mark if getting out of bed on the right side! Certainly capable, but does come with risks.

Laugharne 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:32, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and looks our better chance having had a few recent outings. Ran well last time over a slightly longer trip so the drop in distance here will help and we are also down a pound in the ratings. Has had a wind op since that run too and we come back here as he's a proven CD winner too. Ground is fine too and with a 50% record of hitting the first three in his 18 hurdles runs then must have a nice e/w chance here.

Brummie Boys 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:32, Southwell

Brummie finished fourth on his seasonal debut at Fontwell, it was okay but I was a bit disappointed by the way he travelled, the ground wasn’t very nice but I wouldn’t use that as an excuse. He will enjoy this step up in trip today, he’s by Flemensfirth and they’re usually staying types, this is his first run in a handicap.

Danboru 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:32, Southwell

Did well last summer - winning twice - but has had a few issues since and not been out since last November. Therefore, returns from just over a year off so expected to improve for this. But it's nice to get him back on the track.

Darlyn 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:23, Lingfield Park

Fair return run at Hereford last month (2nd) and dropped a pound for that helps a bit. Has come out of that race well and has improved for it as well. Stepping up in trip here will be fine as she's won over slightly further in the past. Loves soft/heavy ground too even though the in-form Big Penny looks the one to beat she's up another 5lbs in the ratings from her recent win. Each-way.

Zhiguli 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:23, Lingfield Park

First run in a handicap after two quite promising runs - that will help. In a fairly tough race today though with will need to improve a bit more - so e/w claims at best.

What A Glance 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:00, Southwell

What A Glance ran nicely enough on his debut under rules when finishing third, he had a few traffic problems, which isn’t unusual at Lingfield but he was really staying on well to the line. Windy is a good looking horse who enjoys his schooling at home, he’s a good workhorse who is a thorough galloper.

Caffe Macchiato 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
14:00, Southwell

Got hampered and unseated his jockey last time at Huntingdon so needs to bounce back from that and really will be better once getting a handicap mark - so just looking for a step in the right direction here.

Representing Bob 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
13:30, Southwell

He is by the champion sire Presenting out of a winning Bob Back mare and from the family of the Gold Cup winner, Synchronised. He looks a nice staying prospect for the future. It's taken a while for the penny to drop with him, but he seems to be improving in his homework, and if that transfers to the track then he should run a nice race here on his racecourse debut.

Anythingforlove    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Jamie's horse.


Tue 1st Dec 2020
12:50, Lingfield Park

Anythingforlove was unbeaten in bumpers last season, and being a sister to a Gold Cup winner, she will have a future over obstacles. She jumps well, isn't short of speed but will stay further in time. She had no luck in-running on her hurdling debut when the jockey lost a stirrup before the first flight of hurdles and was unable to recover his equilibrium for the rest of the race.....and still she came 4th. Let’s hope for better luck this time around!

Isla's Dream 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
12:50, Lingfield Park

Tough race and really Best watched until runs in a handicap. The Snowden runner looks the obvious call.

Brave Bairn 
Tue 1st Dec 2020
12:20, Lingfield Park

Brave Bairn looked as if she was going to be fourth on her debut at Taunton when fading in the last furlong, she had done a little bit too much early on in the race, so she just ran out of steam. It was an encouraging first run, she’s a very laid back filly at home, so it was unexpected that she ran with the choke out. There’s a lot of improvement in her.

Vivency    WINNER! winner

Nice call at 40/1 from Lee.


Mon 30th Nov 2020
18:50, Wolverhampton

One of two in the race for us. Ran okay on debut at Kempton at the start of the month (3rd of 6) - has come out of that race really well and will gain more experience here, while based on that run we feel the drop back to 7f here (from 1m) will suit her. Seems to have come on a fair bit for that run and of our two runners Daniel Muscutt had the pick and wanted to ride this one. Of course, a race that we've got a hot Ryan Moore-ridden favourite - Elmetto - and a few other promising sorts but we feel she can run well and of our two in the race - even though she's the bigger price - we know more about her and feel she's the value.

Enough Already 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
18:50, Wolverhampton

Our second runner in the race and even though the shorter priced off the two this one hasn't been out for 500 days and is having it's first outing for us - therefore, can be expected to come on for this and we'll also learn a lot too. Really a fact-finding mission. Came from Kevin Ryan's, but despite not winning yet (5 runs) has shown a good level of form and been placed in the top 3 in 4 of his races - but from what we've seen on the short time we've had the horse doesn't work to it's mark of 83 - but sometimes horses can come alive on the track. If the horse runs to that level will be in the mix, but the Morrison runner looks the one to beat and it won't be easy having to give 6lbs away to that horse either. Could surprise us, but let's see where we are after this.

Quarry Beach 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
17:50, Wolverhampton

New to us having recently come to us from the Henry Candy yard. Yet to win a race from 19 runs but is running off a career-low rating here and has run well at the track in the past (3rd here on only start). But really today is a bit of a fact-finding mission so we'll learn more, but past form and dropping rating suggests she should be competitive in races like once we find out more about her.

Silver Cliffs 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Oud Metha Bridge    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner.


Mon 30th Nov 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Oud Metha Bridge is now very well handicapped, he was a bit disappointing last run when seemly travelling like the winner 2f out. We have fitted cheek pieces here for the first time so hoping he finds his form again, he seems very well at home, good e/w price if he comes back to form.

A Day Of Mischief 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
16:05, Kempton Park

Trappy race - yet to win from 5 runs, but has run well on two of her last three starts, including here last time out over this trip. Dropped 2lbs from that last run too helps and we've a nice draw in 1. Looks a race with several chances despite only 7 runners, but it also looks a dire affair so that must bring us into it. If running to the level of last time should not be far away.

Sognatore 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
15:00, Kempton Park

Makes his debut here today - has done some nice work at home but is sure to improve for the experience against some well-bred types.

Blazer Two 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
15:00, Kempton Park

Average debut run at Kempton earlier this month - wasn't the best away that day either so with a better start and that experience can hopefully get closer, but really is still learning and just be pleased with a step forward here. 

Tamaris    WINNER! winner

Fair run to be third.


Mon 30th Nov 2020
14:50, Fakenham

Winner on the flat when with Roger Charlton. Disappointing run last time on hurdles debut and first run for the yard - we feel the horse is better than that despite the fact he finished third. Took a bit of a hold that day so if settling better here will have more to give - but that last race did come off a 3 month break so was a bit fresh. Hopefully he can also improve on that today with that experience which should give him every chance.

Point Louise    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Harry's horse.


Mon 30th Nov 2020
14:30, Kempton Park

Promising debut run here last month when a close fourth over this trip. Ignore the last run as that came on heavy ground at HQ and didn't act on it and harder race - this looks easier today. Also back to a track we know she likes so expected to run a lot better and would have place claims, but the Roger Teal runner - Sharla - sets the clear standard and is most likely winner.

Dilly Rosa 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
14:30, Kempton Park

Dilly Rosa is making her debut here, she hasn’t been easy but seems to have been transformed for the fitting of a hood recently and has been working nicely, now ready for a run so will be a learning curve for her here.

Cheque En Blanc 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
14:20, Fakenham

Comfortable winner last time in a weaker race at Fontwell. Put up by the handicapper (5lbs) but should still have every chance in a competitive race. Niall remains in the saddle and helps by taking off 7lbs. Only 8 runners and they all look to have some sort of a say with half the field last-time-out winners too, so certainly e/w claims here.

Mymatemarmite 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
13:55, Kempton Park

One of the more experienced in the field despite only having 2 runs. Took a step forward last time out here when second over 1m. The drop back to 7f will be in his favour as was only headed in the final furlong really last time. Going the right way and small e/w chance, but this is a tougher-looking race so would need more. Overall, looks a tough race and will be better once handicapped too - she'll get a mark after this run.

Darkest Day 
Mon 30th Nov 2020
12:45, Fakenham

If suited to the tight track, should have a reasonable chance after needing his first run when sixth of 8 at Lingfield. Dropped 4lbs for that last run too and we feel the longer trip at this track should be fine. Each-way chance.

Durouyn 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
15:50, Ffos Las

Is taking a bit of time to get the hang of things but does have ability. A highly-strung character that shows plenty of attitude. Track and ground are fine though and will be fitter after two recent runs. 9lbs lower when first seen this season and in what looks a poor race then would not be shocked to see him run better here. Each-way.

Makethedifference 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
15:50, Ffos Las

Had his issues and had a huge absence to overcome - over 800 days, so just happy to get him back on the track really. Not getting any younger at 12 - going on 13, but a horse we know well as used to be with us before going the Bishop yard. First run back for us so we'll see where we are after this, but seems well at home and on a plus does return on a very nice mark (85), considering he was rated 117 back in 2017 - but that was 3 years ago!

The Dawn Man 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
15:13, Ffos Las

Lill Smith 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
14:58, Leicester

Was running a fair race on her return at Uttoxeter last time out when falling two out. Would have probably been in the top half that day and she's none the worse for that - just got a bit tired. Slightly shorter trip here will help and her jumping at home has been good since so we feel her confidence hasn't been affected. Races up with the pace and will be fitter this time too. Small e/w chance.

Early Morning Rain 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
13:50, Carlisle

Early Morning Rain has won a bumper and two novice hurdles. She was a good 2nd on her chasing debut a couple of weeks ago, and come here in search of some black type for her future career as a broodmare - so we're looking to be 3rd, or of course better! It looks a tough task, but if one of the top three disappoint we're hoping to pick up the pieces.

Legends Ryde 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
13:20, Carlisle

Legends Ryde is a nice mare. She was listed class as a bumper horse last season, and won a novice hurdle and was on route into Graded company when Covid hit. She's not hit the ground running this season, but the ground was too quick for her on her seasonal reappearance in a Grade 2, and she had too much ground to make up in a slowly run contest last time - the winner has won again since. She has won at this track before, and although it looks a tight little race, I think she'll have every chance here if things fall right for her again.

Alaskan Boy 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
13:12, Ffos Las

4lbs lower than last run when down the field on chase debut - that came off a long break (588 days) so is much better for the outing that came 3 weeks ago. Softer ground will be more to his liking too, so we expect a step forward here but still looks a tall order against 2 or 3 in-form rivals. Will just be happy with an improved run.

Anti Cool 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
12:56, Leicester

Second runner in the race for us and probably - if pushed - our slightly better chance. Pulled up last time at Ludlow but made too many mistakes that day and is better than that. Time before was a close second at Warwick and on that form would have a chance here off the same mark but with Tabitha taking off 5lbs this time. Trip (stays further) and ground are fine and the stiffer track will suit. Each-way.

Some Finish 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
12:56, Leicester

A lot to prove at the moment after being pulled up on his last 5 starts! Certainly capable on his day though and won well off a 6lb higher mark back in Jan. Is also a CD winner here and stays further than this trip so that will help on this stiffer track. If in the mood then can't totally rule out but not one to totally trust and goes without saying after 5 poor runs has a bit to prove.

Coole Well 
Sun 29th Nov 2020
12:10, Carlisle

Coole Well has been a model of consistency, and seldom finishes outside the top three. However, the handicapper loves him and seldom gives him a chance to win as he always seems to rate the races around him! So, although frustrating from a win perspective, he should run his race again.

Quiet Penny 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
15:07, Bangor

Quiet Penny hasn't run for 602 days and is making her debut for us.  She runs off a mark of only 100 here, and she certainly looks better than that mark.  We've done her wind over the summer, and she looks a nice mare.  She has done plenty of work, but is bound to improve for this run, however I'd like to think she can run a really nice race here and still improve for the outing.

Rollercoster    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Scu's horse - looks one to follow.


Sat 28th Nov 2020
15:07, Bangor

Been off the track a while before joining us, has also had a wind operation. Her form has not been great but has won a point on heavy ground in Ireland. Would have preferred to start off at 21/2m but very difficult to get in races at the moment off this rating. It looks a weak race on paper and hopefully she can be competitive off this low mark.

Paseo 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
14:53, Doncaster

Paseo likes good ground and, because he’d had a quiet winter last year, I kept him going through the summer after racing was halted in March. With hindsight it was probably a mistake not to give him a summer break as he ran a bit flat in his first three outings this season. He then did have a break and, because he does everything so easily at home, he needed his recent outing at Kempton on his reappearance. He’ll be sharper for that outing and is a horse you can’t bully in a race, you need him to think he’s going well and keep him happy. He’s wearing first time cheek pieces in an attempt to help him travel.

Botox Has 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
14:25, Newbury

Nice hurdler that has been going the right way and has done nothing wrong winning 3 of his 5 starts. Also returned with a top win at Cheltenham last month and has come out of that race really well. The form of that race has been given a boost with Allmankind winning easily over fences since too. Trip and ground are fine - another step forward needed here as we are having to give 5lbs away to the classy-looking Henderson runner, but hoping our recent run might give us a slight edge. Looking forward to another big run.

Pisgah Pike 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
14:25, Newbury

Pisgah Pike runs in a very competitive renewal of the Gerry Feilden. His form figures read 21212 this season, and after narrowly missing out on Monday, he races here off the same mark and might have a chance of running into a place.

Weststreet 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
13:22, Bangor

Weststreet made an uncharacteristic bad blunder last time out at Fontwell when unseating his jockey, he made no real effort to jump the fence. When I watched it live I thought he’d been blinded, but after seeing the replay it was obvious he wasn’t, a lapse in concentration can happen to any horse but he’s usually a pretty good jumper. The trip today will be on the short side for him, but he needs this ground and with little prospect of any proper rain for the time being I wanted to get him back on a course. He didn’t really fire last season for no apparent reason, he’s been very bright so far this autumn so I’m hopeful he’ll run better – as long as he can remember to jump!

Court Master 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
13:15, Newbury

Run well in all his starts this season and has a decent record around here. Found 2m4f too sharp last time so the step up in trip is a big plus. Looks a very competitive race but the ground should be ideal and he looks to be still improving.

Bolt N Brown 
Sat 28th Nov 2020
13:08, Doncaster

Has run two good races over hurdles already - first and second. Trying her up slightly in trip this time as seemed to run on well last time over 2m and the good ground will also help get the trip. Archie also a bonus in the saddle taking off 7lbs as we've got a penalty here and have to give 6lbs away to most of the others. With just over 40 rides (3 wins), even though he's still learning - he's getting more experience all the time and his claim will help. Presenting Meghan and Didonato look the ones to beat but we are expecting another solid run and should go well. Each-way.

Fortune Finder    WINNER! winner

Powered clear to win well and another TQ View winner this month too!


Fri 27th Nov 2020
19:45, Chelmsford

A horse that came to us from the John Gosden yard. Ran well on debut for us here back in September and we've taken our time with him since. Well at home and if repeating his promising first run, hopefully will go very close.

Blue Eagle 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
19:15, Chelmsford

Didn't get the best of runs last time out at Wolverhampton so actually did well to be only 5 lengths off the winner. Dropping back to 1m2f here will be fine and is learning all the time. Had a nice break since that last run (approx 2 months) and being the least exposed runner in the race gives us hope she can find more. Each-way chance with Hayley riding.

Secret Art 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
19:15, Chelmsford

10 year-old that is a proven CD winner. Has dropped down the ratings after some average runs and starting to look well-handicapped if he can find some old form. First time in this grade too which hopefully will see him have every chance and Rhys takes off a handy 7lbs. No shock to see him run better than odds suggest.

Maysong 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
18:45, Chelmsford

Maysong runs in the 6.45pm at Chelmsford over 7f. He has been running consistently of late and keeps knocking on the door without sealing a victory to his name. This looks a nice option for him and I am hopeful he will run a good race. He has drawn well in 6 and looks a good chance on his current form. James Doyle takes the ride.

Johnny Estella 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
16:45, Chelmsford

Fair debut run at Wolverhampton earlier this month, but still learning. Cheekpieces are on today and then should help but really it's hard to not see the Hugo Palmer horse taking this so just hoping for a step forward from ours here and go from there.

Neminos 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
16:15, Chelmsford

Slightly disappointing so far, but has only had two career runs so still learning. Different tactics will be used this time. If they work, might see some improvement.

The Whipmaster 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
15:45, Chelmsford

Promising run last time at Chelmsford. Handicap debut today will help and only fourth career run so more to come. Hopefully he can improve on that last outing and have every chance - e/w. Tom Queally rides.

Beryl Burton 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
15:45, Chelmsford

With Tom Marquand riding, the first-time blinkers and a nice draw in 1 all this may help. The drop back to 7f should also be in her favour after getting tired over the extended mile at Wolverhampton last time. Hoping for better, but at the moment still hard to fancy on what she's shown to date and until we see a step forward on the track.

Jean Genie

Still not quite sure how he lost the last day when nabbed on the line at Stratford. But still a top run and the way he stayed on that day over 2m6f suggests this step up to 3m will be what he needs. We gave him a month off after those last two quick runs and he seems well for it. More needed as the handicapper put us up 5lbs for that last run and Charlie, who claimed 5lbs last time, isn't riding this time. Another bold bid is still expected though and looks to have a leading chance against the Longsdon horse.

Robero 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
14:10, Southwell

Another open race at the track here today - Rob has been running well here recently without winning but is much better treated today being 4lbs lower this time, plus we are putting George Bass on to claim 7lbs. CD winner here too helps as I think there are only four course winners at the track (us being one), while we are putting the blinkers on today for the first time to help sharpen him up. Expected to be thereabouts.

Crosse Fire    WINNER! winner

Another course win for this great old boy!


Fri 27th Nov 2020
13:40, Southwell

Another stalwart at this track - having his 124th career race and the bulk of those have been here on the fibresand. Last two runs have been solid placed efforts again and dropped back into a Class 5 should give him every chance again. Solid e/w claims.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Another solid run at the track from Gay's horse.


Fri 27th Nov 2020
13:40, Southwell

Course winner that rarely runs a bad race - same mark to last time when third at Chelmsford and another claiming jockey on today with George Bass (7lbs) so that helps. Only niggle would be that he's still got a bit to prove over this 6f trip with all wins coming over 5f, but we feel it's worth another crack here with his track form reading well, 2-2-1.

Moveonup 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
13:40, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us - 5lbs higher than when last winning here two runs back and can ignore the last outing as hampered at the start and lost all chance. Just under 6 lengths to find with Requinto Dawn on that last run but - as I said - the horse had too much ground to make up after a poor start. Still fairly well treated on form early this year at the track so in an open affair e/w chance with a bit more luck in-running. Callum Hutchinson continues in the saddle and claims a handy 7lbs again.

Kilfilum Cross 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
13:25, Doncaster

Didn't give his true running last time at Cheltenham and nothing came to light. Turned out again today as seems well at home since and we are trying to get some confidence back into him. Much shorter trip than normal so may just find some younger legs having a bit more pace and doesn't look a bad race. Be delighted with a clear round and so we can build again from there.

Editeur Du Gite 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
12:45, Newbury

Promising run first time at Ascot when second to Sully D'Oc AA, who runs on another race later today. If repeating that run, should have every chance, but has come out of that well and had 4 weeks off to get over it, while the slightly shorter trip will suit.

Scorched Earth 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
12:35, Southwell

Second run for us, and increase in trip should help, but ultimately will probably want to go up even further.

Sopran Thor 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
12:15, Newbury

Tough race, although promising at home. Probably best watched on this occasion though.

Guguss Collonges 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
12:15, Newbury

Nice horse and promising first run. Tough race for his first attempt over hurdles. Probably best-watched on this occasion though.

Samovar     WINNER! winner

Went down by a neck!


Fri 27th Nov 2020
11:35, Southwell

Regular here - as we know loves the surface and this 5f is ideal. Been busy the last few months and been given a chance by dropping another 2lbs in the ratings and looking well-handicapped at the moment. But has been finding it hard to get his head in front - 17 races without a win now. But always tries and certainly in with a decent chance in this grade. Should not be far away again and hopefully he can end this run without a win.

Scale Force 
Fri 27th Nov 2020
11:35, Southwell

Was starting to be a bit frustrating but bounced back to form last time out here over this course and distance with a close fourth. Same mark and George rides again to claim 5lbs. Well at home since and with that improved effort last time then hopeful he can go well again today, but does look another open affair with 2 or 3 others having similar chances.

Casa Loupi    WINNER! winner

 No chance with the in-form winner, but a promising run over this new trip.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

Tough race with us all taking on the in-form Pearl Beach. But a horse which has been crying out to go further after staying on over 1m2f at Yarmouth last time out - hopefully will have every chance and Ryan a big bonus in the saddle.

Cosmelli 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
18:00, Chelmsford

Decent stayer on his day and is a proven CD winner here too. Returning from a 3 month break so might just need this in a race with some classy rivals. Having said that, he's been working very well at home and George's 7lb claim a bonus, so would also not be shocked if he ran well on this return. Nice to get him back on the track and no matter what though will improve further for this and certainly one to note in the coming weeks.

Durdle Door 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Promising run first time at Newmarket. Is still learning but hopefully she can improve on that today which should give her a reasonable e/w chance at a nice price, but the Hannon, Stoute and Walker runners look the main ones.

Calarules 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
15:41, Taunton

Did well a few seasons ago but has had an interrupted time of things since and returns from a long time off here - so delighted to have the horse back on the track. Returns in an average-looking race though and on a fair mark so that will help, plus Charlie takes off 5lbs too. Goes without saying the run will benefit him, but still only a 7 year-old so hoping with a clear time of it can get back on track this season. Will also love he good ground - one of the reasons for coming here - so small e/w chance, but really the Farrelly and Honeyball runners look the ones to be fighting this out and after such a break we can expect ours to improve for this.

Feralkat 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
15:03, Lingfield Park

Feralkat won an Irish Point on bottomless ground, and is nicely bred. She made her racecourse debut in a warm Aintree bumper when not disgraced in 5th, but the ground wasn't soft enough for her really and she never looked a bumper type. She jumps, stays and gallops - so this looks far more suitable over 2m3f on heavy ground.

Tight Call 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
14:41, Taunton

Very pleased with his win last time out at Ludlow - jumped well from the front that day and ran the others into the ground! Up 6lbs and up in grade here makes life harder but is another that will love the ground and has come out of that last race very well. We still think there's more to come from this horse too as keeps surprising us. Shorter trip should help too as likes to get on with things. Therefore, deserves to take his chance in this better race and must have a fair e/w chance if turning up in the same mood as last time.

Kentucky Kingdom    WINNER! winner

Handled the surface well - one to watch next time in a similar race.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
14:20, Southwell

Been knocking on the door. Drop back in trip and new surface today. If he takes this in his stride he should be thereabouts.

High Up In The Air    WINNER! winner

Treble on the day for Gary and the yard.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
14:03, Lingfield Park

Drop back in distance would be of a slight concern, but a strong traveller last time so it may just suit and should be better for that last run as it came off a break. Each-way claims. 

Holiday Magic    WINNER! winner

Plugged on well to take third.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
13:50, Southwell

Great first run for us when second at last meeting. CD winner and a good old campaigner who must have a decent e/w shout from good draw (1). Dougie Costello rides.

Deebaj    WINNER! winner

Easy winner and another nice TQ View selection this month too.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
13:33, Lingfield Park

Well clear on ratings in this Claiming hurdle. These races don't always pan out as the ratings suggest though so might not be as straightforward as it looks. But the horse is well and handles soft/heavy ground so should definitely be in the frame at worse.

Alrightjack 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
13:03, Lingfield Park

Alrightjack has won a bumper, and a novice hurdle, and run well in the Grade 3 Silver Trophy when 4th last season. He ran well over fences at Uttoxeter on seasonal debut, but he has thrown in some poor performances too, and so we're reaching for the blinkers here. He has the ability to go close here over the right trip, and at a track he has won at before.

Benevolentdictator    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Gary and the team


Thu 26th Nov 2020
13:03, Lingfield Park

First run over fences. Has schooled well at home but probably best-watched on this occasion - will be better once getting more experience over the bigger obstacles.

Dorking Lad    WINNER! winner

Another promising run from this Gary Moore runner.


Thu 26th Nov 2020
12:41, Taunton

Promising run first time over hurdles when third at Sandown. Looks to have the Lavelle horse to fear but hopefully he will improve on that and could be a strong contender today.

The Longest Day 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
12:41, Taunton

The Longest Day has shown a glimmer of promise in a bumper and a novice hurdle, but he's realistically going to find life easier in handicaps when he matures and strengthens.

Sharp Operator 
Thu 26th Nov 2020
11:50, Southwell

Fair first run for us and if he can build on that could have an e/w chance at big price. Drop back in trip should also help.

Note Bleu 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
19:10, Kempton Park

CD winner here and the return to the AW will help after running down the field on the turf the last twice in better races. Dropped in grade will, therefore, also help and we also feel the blinkers for the first time will sharpen him up. Does need to bounce back a bit but form at this track gives us hope he could - 6-4-2-1-6. Each-way.

Dream Chaser 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
18:05, Kempton Park

Going the right way - just touched off last time here over this trip, beaten a neck. Up 5lbs for that run makes life tougher and this also looks a harder race on paper. But Tyler rides again and can claim 7lbs like last time too. Drawn a lot higher this time as well (12) - last time we had draw 4, so that will suggest the make-up of the race this time might be different. Remains in good order though and if building on that last run must have another e/w chance if getting some luck in-running from that draw.

Arbennig    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Jamie's horse.


Wed 25th Nov 2020
15:50, Hereford

Arbennig is by the four time Ascot Gold Cup winner, Yeats (the sire of Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival winner, Shattered Love) and out of a winning sister to the Grade 1 winning Rubi Light, who won the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase, and was rated 168! He has taken time to mature, but is thriving and is certainly a horse I look forward to seeing out onto the track now. He is bound to improve for this both mentally and physically, but he is a lovely young horse.

The Warrior 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
15:40, Lingfield Park

More than capable of winning a race like this if in the mood! Dropped a few pounds from his last run when midfield at Lingfield but was slowly away that day so had it all to do. Step up to 1m is fine and last two wins have been over this CD and off slightly higher marks so that would give him a big chance. Draw 10 not ideal but does like to be held up anyway so hoping it won't be too much of an issue. Will need the breaks still from that draw, but seems well after a small break and should not be far away if getting the luck in-running. Each-way.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
15:40, Lingfield Park

CD winner here and not without a squeak in an open affair. Won three runs ago here over 1m2f and is only a pound higher. We also take 5lbs off here with Rhys' claim and she seems well after a recent wind op. Stays further than this mile so we'll try and make use of that too - each-way chance.

Leading Ewe On 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
15:00, Wetherby

Leading Ewe On is by the first crop of the Ascot Gold Cup and St.Leger winner, Leading Light. This filly is a half-sister to the Cheltenham Festival Grand Annual winner, Croco Bay and three-time winner, Thistle Do Nicely. She was in training last season but didn’t run in the spring due to the pandemic. Tricky to say just how she'll run here on her racecourse debut, but our bumper horses have been running well this season, so we're hopeful she can run into a place. 

Heavens Bill 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Debut run for this 2 year-old today so goes without saying will learn a lot and improve for the experience.

Soyuz 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Promising debut in very different conditions to today but has done a Barrier trial here and shaped nicely. Will stay further in time and outside draw no help but top rider booked and could run a big race if things go smoothly for him.

Donnie Azoff 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
13:50, Wetherby

Donnie Azoff showed some promising bumper form, but I felt he didn't quite gallop through the line on his last run. He's had a small break and a soft palate operation since. He jumps well, has been working really nicely in a tongue tie, and I look forward to seeing him back on the track on his hurdling debut. The favourite will be hard to beat, but I do like this chap and he's certainly got a bright future.

Gentlemans Dream 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
13:40, Hereford

A horse that's had his issues - hence the long time off. Will improve a lot for this, but it's great to finally get him to the track!

 

Ballydoyle 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

Probably my best chance today. Ran well here over this trip last time and the form of that run might be better than it looks with the winner probably better than that grade. That was only his second run back off a break too so getting fitter by the race. Same mark so must have every chance if improving slightly on that last effort.

Motdepas 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
13:10, Hereford

Disappointed last time out at Cheltenham but that was a much harder race. Is better than that though and seems better for that run. Longer trip and softer ground will help too and we expect a better showing. No shock to see him run better than odds suggest.

Rainbow Storm 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
12:40, Hereford

Rainbow Storm is a little star at home, he loves his jumping and he’s very honest in his work. His three races to date have been perfectly okay but he will obviously fare better once he has a handicap mark and this race looks competitive enough on paper. Once a horse has a couple of duck eggs against their names you regularly get balloted out of novice hurdles, so it’s not easy to pick and choose a weaker race, which is why it’s easier when they have a handicap mark.

Lady Morpheus 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

In good order and a horse with a consistent profile - been placed the last three times. Same mark as last time here and Hollie Doyle a plus in the saddle. Nice draw in 3 helps and despite a small bit to prove over this longer trip (1m2f) will be ridden to get it and if that's the case must have a solid e/w chance again here today.

Soramond 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

Soramond runs in the 12.00pm at Lingfield over 1m. We have dropped her back in trip and added blinkers to help sharpen her up. She has drawn well in one and George Wood who knows the horse well takes the ride. I am hopeful of improvement on her last performance.

Mungos Quest 
Wed 25th Nov 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

Bit rusty on his return from injury last start but stayed on well enough and will have learnt plenty. Sure to find his races once he puts it all together and no surprise to see him go well at a big price in a weak race.

Toro Dorado 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
18:30, Wolverhampton

He is in great form at home and always runs a good race. Fair Star is the one to beat on paper after winning back-to-back in good style. He has drawn well in 6 and Luke Morris who knows the horse inside out takes the ride.

Muddle Thinking 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
15:37, Southwell

First time after a long absence. Has been working well and if doing the same on the racecourse, could have every chance with Niall helping by taking off 6lbs too.

Ivaquestion 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
15:25, Lingfield Park

Big price winner just getting up on penultimate start but nothing like the same at Southwell next start. This is more conventional and should go well though looks a competitive race for the grade. Seems in good shape.

Rafiot    WINNER! winner

Nice e/w run at 33/1!


Tue 24th Nov 2020
15:25, Lingfield Park

First run on the all weather for the stable.  If taking to it, should run reasonably well as in good order at home, but the race seems to revolve around the Stoute runner. With little depth outside the hot favourite then could sneak a place.

Cheers Delboy 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
15:07, Southwell

Off the track for over two years, and is sure to need it today. He's done as much as we can at home now, and hopefully this will be a nice prep run for a return to fences.

Star Of Screen 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
14:55, Lingfield Park

Ran well on debut but has disappointed slightly since then. I am hoping that this step up in trip will suit. He is drawn well and if she stays the trip when should go close.

Crystal Lad 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
14:37, Southwell

Ran well last time (3rd) over an inadequate trip. Hopefully the step up in distance will see him be more competitive and the first-time visor is on today to help him focus. Open race, but e/w chance.

Compadre 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
14:37, Southwell

Down the field the last day at Fontwell at the end of August so we gave him some time off to freshen up. So is back from a short break and off a mark that should make him competitive. Has gone well fresh in the past and is 3lbs lower than last winning mark.

Trixie Mitskie 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
13:55, Lingfield Park

She has been running consistently of late and looks to be down to a mark where she can be competitive. We have kept the blinkers on as we feel she runs best in them. It looks a good option for her with the Tom Ward-trained handicap debutant Decadent the one to beat on paper. She has been drawn badly in 9 and Hayley Turner takes the ride

Midnight Centurion    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Jamie!


Tue 24th Nov 2020
13:37, Southwell

Midnight Centurion is a homebred out of a mare we used to train. She won a bumper on her racecourse debut but lost it in the stewards' room afterwards. She was from a decent family herself, and this chap is her first foal. As with most Midnight Legends, he will improve with age, but he goes well enough at home to suggest he can go well in a bumper before he goes hurdling. This looks a warm race on paper, but no reason to suggest he can't run better than his odds suggest, but as most of our horses have been 2nd in the last 2 weeks, I’d suggest an each-way bet here!

Nobel Leader 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
13:07, Southwell

Down to a handy mark and will have the track, trip and ground all to suit here. If he settled well and jumps then he could give the warm favourite something to think about.

Roca Magica 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
11:55, Lingfield Park

She ran well last time and still hit the line strong after clipping heels at Newcastle. She has been in great form all year and this looks a good option for her with Mr Mac looking the horse to beat on paper. She has been drawn badly in 12 and James Doyle takes the ride.

Lord Clenaghcastle 
Tue 24th Nov 2020
11:55, Lingfield Park

Not very well drawn (10). But a change of tactics might see him run a better race as he is down in grade.

Calm Down 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
18:15, Chelmsford

Horse that came to us from the Ralph Beckett yard after we got her at the recent Tatts Sales. Won well last time at Kempton and kept on well that day to suggest she's worth a try over this slightly longer trip. We'll learn more about her today but George offsets her 5lb rise in the handicap so is off the same mark as last time - if she gets the trip then must have an e/w chance, but the in-form Pearl Beach did win very well last time out and might be a horse ahead of the handicapper.

Alamora 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
16:15, Chelmsford

Was very disappointing last time out - however, she had a wide draw that day and was over an inadequate trip. Her finishing position was exaggerated as a result. That race should have brought her on and I would be very disappointed if she didn't bounce back to form today.

Avantgardist 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
15:55, Ludlow

Promising return run at Bangor last month - has certainly come on for that run. Dropped a few pounds helps and also eased in grade slightly helps. Trip and ground are fine and has run okay here at the track in the past. We've probably all got the Daly horse to fear but ours should run well and place claims today - anything else a plus.

Pisgah Pike 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
15:45, Kempton Park

Benefitted hugely from a summer wind op and has won two novice hurdles pretty impressively, plus was just touched off in a Listed handicap. This looks an ideal race for him and he looks to have everything in this favour. Ben takes the ride as it's a conditional jockeys' race for jockeys who have ridden less than 20 winners - he takes off a handy 8lbs as a result.

Vision Clear 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
15:45, Kempton Park

Trappy little contest with just 6 runners but in good order and should have every chance. Conditional jockeys' race too so Niall's 6lb claim helps and he's a proven CD winner at the track (only one in the field) so that must count for something too.

Distingo 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
15:10, Kempton Park

First time over this distance so a bit of a fact-finding mission. Been looking like he needs to step up in trip though, but really best watched on this occasion.

Whats Occurring 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
14:35, Kempton Park

What’s Occurring was beaten a long way last time out at Bangor, the ground was probably too soft for him that day and he made one mistake which seemed to make him loose his confidence. We sent him to Laura Collett to do some intensive schooling and he's come back a lot slicker and full of confidence. He's been working well and hopefully the ground/track will suit him today.

Generous Day 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
14:35, Kempton Park

Won this race 12 months ago and returns off a pound lower mark so must have every chance of going well again. Rather lost his way though after this race last year but has had a wind op during that time and blew away the cobwebs last time at Stratford last month. Conditions are fine - maybe a slightly tougher race than last year with the Nicholls and O'Neill runners, but in good order so each-way chance.

Mr Palmtree 
Mon 23rd Nov 2020
13:00, Ludlow

up a massive 12 lbs for Herford win, so a total of 19 lbs for two success, which seems rather harsh. He is in good form though and will hopefully put in another bold show.

Olivers Pursuit    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gay.


Sun 22nd Nov 2020
17:30, Wolverhampton

Nice draw in 5 and dropped another 2lbs from last time We are also helping him with George Bass riding to claim 7lbs so he's got his best chance in terms of mark here to date. Yet to win a race though (11 runs) and the Carroll horse might be hard to beat, but the step back to 1m 1/2f will be in his favour and has run well at this track in the past. Not a deep race outside the hot favourite so each-way chance.

Atavique 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
16:00, Wolverhampton

Nice horse that we bought of Godolphin and handled the heavy ground well to win at a nice price on debut at Newbury last month. Different conditions here on the AW but we feel it will suit and the longer trip should be within range having won over 1m2f on heavy ground on the turf last time. Probably have the Stoute runner to beat and might not be easy having to give weight away to that horse, but she's well and George takes off a handy 5lbs again - should not be far away.

Invicta Lake 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
15:18, Exeter

Normally goes well on soft and should be a bit sharper for a recent outing. 7lb claimer will help and place claims here today off a light weight.

The Fresh Prince 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
15:03, Uttoxeter

Prince won at Huntingdon on his seasonal debut twelve days ago, he travelled well through the race that day and his jumping was very good, he was left in front at the last fence and he could possibly be considered a lucky winner but we’ll never know. He will be sharper for that race and I just hope this doesn’t come too soon for him but it looked the right race to go for on paper. He is a tall good looking horse who has had a lot of bad luck over the last couple of years, he’s been challenging to train due to his various niggles so I was delighted to see him win for his lovely owners who have been incredibly patient.

Optimistic Bias    WINNER! winner

Great winner for James.


Sun 22nd Nov 2020
15:03, Uttoxeter

Uncharacteristic error last week on return run after a long break. Seems in good form since and could go well fresh so has an each-way chance at a track he likes - CD winner.

Potato Park 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
13:40, Wolverhampton

Going the right way and took another step forward last time at Kempton. Into a handicap for the first time here and the step up in trip will suit, while James Doyle is an obvious plus in the saddle. Expected to go well with the Watson and Hughes runners the clear dangers. Should have fair place claims.

Anythingforlove 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
13:18, Uttoxeter

Anythingforlove was unbeaten in bumpers last season, and being a sister to a Gold Cup winner, she will have a future over obstacles. She jumps well, isn't short of speed but will stay further in time. She will obviously improve for her first run over hurdles, but we love her, and so long as there is plenty of cut in the ground she should progress to being a very smart mare.

Diamond Brig    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Henry and the team.


Sun 22nd Nov 2020
12:48, Uttoxeter

First run for the yard and returning from a break so we'll find out more here. But a former Point and Hunter Chase winner so a horse with potential at this sort of level. Stiff track will suit and the ground is fine, but a bit of a learning curve for us here and we'll find out where we are re his mark so we'd be happy with a solid jumping round and go from there.

Evas Oskar 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
12:33, Exeter

Lovely horse and certainly one with a lot of potential in the yard - returning from a break here today but a horse that has been working well and has gone well fresh in the past so even though we'll naturally feel he'll improve for this it's not a huge concern. Trip and ground are okay too - not without an each-way chance, but we are taking on 2 or 3 in-form horses that have had the benefit of recent runs.

Tallow For Coal 
Sun 22nd Nov 2020
12:18, Uttoxeter

Tallow For Coal won an Irish point earlier this year in pretty emphatic fashion. He was pretty green when we started working him, so he obviously has latent talent, and will surely be one to keep improving. He stays and jumps, and whatever he achieves over hurdles will be a bonus as he will make up into a staying chaser.

Mukha Magic 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Fair stayer on his day and in the right race - calmer waters here after running down the field in the Cesarewitch last time out and back on the AW will suit as decent overall record on the sand surfaces. Been freshened up with a small break and another we've managed to get Tom Marquand to ride. Each-way.

Beauty Choice    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner this month!


Sat 21st Nov 2020
19:30, Wolverhampton

Beauty Choice is very consistent and is well drawn again today. Sharper 7f will suit better after getting nabbed on the line last time at Chelmsford - takes on Eagle Creek, who beat us a head last time, and he can go close again.

Capla Knight 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton

Very open race but we've a good draw in 4 and a top jockey in Tom Marquand, who has ridden him the last three times, booked to ride. Gets in here off the same mark as last time (3rd at Chelmsford), so a repeat of that should see him not be far away. Many chances but is going the right way and well at home so must have e/w claims.

Katyusha 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
18:00, Wolverhampton

Katyusha is going to be a nice filly in time but she is very quirky and it’s imperative that she has a good experience today. Hopefully she can get a nice position in amongst them and run well.

Silver Cliffs 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
16:30, Wolverhampton

We've probably all got the Carroll horse to fear but Silver Cliffs is a consistent performer at this level and is still fairly-lightly raced with just 7 runs. Probably a small bit to prove back up to 1m here, but is well at home and if getting home would have place chances. Hector Crouch rides.

Recuerdame 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
16:30, Wolverhampton

Dual course winner here and last time there under this rider. Not gone up much for recent good efforts and well drawn whilst was unlucky last time at Kempton when stopped with his run. Should be thereabouts if in the same form though has a tough favourite to beat.

Countess Reach 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
15:43, Huntingdon

Probably flattered a bit by finishing fourth last time out in a race that lacked depth as was still beaten 34 lengths. Going the right way though and her experience will be a plus with a lot of the other newcomers, plus we get 7lbs from the others. Morrison and O'Brien runners probably the ones by the betting, but small e/w chance if building on that last run.

It Fitz 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
15:43, Huntingdon

The Game Is On 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
15:30, Lingfield Park

Surprise winner in an amteurs' race back at the end of the Summer but has some decent form and easy to discard the last two runs. Could go well at a big price back at a more suitable distance at a track that suits his style of racing.

Lyrical 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
14:55, Lingfield Park

Lyrical runs in the 2.55pm at Lingfield over 1m2f. We have added blinkers to help sharpen her up and dropped her back in trip. This looks a nice option for her and she is only 1lb higher than when she won at Newmarket at the start of the season. Adam Kirby takes the ride.

Secret Art 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
14:55, Lingfield Park

Dropping down the ratings and very well treated on last win - that came off 15lbs higher, but is now 10 (going on 11) so things are probably catching up with him. Still think there is a race in him, but some of these finished in front of us last time and it might be more of the same today.

Dark Shot 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
14:20, Lingfield Park

Been busy of late but taking his racing well at the moment - ran a close third at Southwell a few weeks ago and off the same mark and trip must have a similar chance. Nice draw in 4 too and switch to Lingfield will be okay. A race with many chances though so probably e/w claims.

Sovereign Duke 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
13:58, Huntingdon

Sovereign Duke would have won on his hurdling debut but took a bad fall at the 2nd last. He has taken a couple of runs back to get his confidence again, and now makes his handicap debut off a decent mark compared to his flat rating. Providing he can put that fall out of his mind, then he should have a chance of being competitive.

Tippingituptonancy 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
12:48, Huntingdon

Last run was her best yet when a close third at Musselburgh - done well over the summer and been working well at home in preparation for this. Ground is fine, but any rain will be okay too. Will improve for the run no matter what looking forward to a solid run but be a shock if one of the top three in the market isn't winning this.

Prince Rock 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
12:35, Lingfield Park

Multiple winner here but most impressive under this rider on first time association on penultimate start. Not so good next time and again drawn wide so has to prove he can compete at this slightly higher level but seems in top form and likely to go well again round here.

Exodela 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
12:20, Ascot

Exod'ela is a tough little horse. He won well on handicap debut in February, and ran well at Cheltenham last time out in a decent handicap when beaten only 3 lengths. He carries a penalty here for his win, but this is his last chance to run in a novice, and this £18k race was worth a shot especially with just 4 runners.  He is fit, well, and will be over-priced considering.

That's Me 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
12:15, Huntingdon

Has shown some ability in his two races for us in races won by fair sorts - another run her for more experience and one step closer to a handicap mark - so although we expect a step forward here is another that will be better once handicapped. The Tom Lacey runner - Glory And Honour looks the one to be winning this.

Do Your Job 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
12:10, Haydock

A horse we like a lot and has been very impressive in winning his last two. Up again in grade here but relishes the soft ground and travels well through it. Likes to front run so another bold bid expected - will need more with the Nicholls and Pauling runners much stiffer opposition here, but he's very well and hopefully he can continue his progression.

Caffe Macchiato  
Sat 21st Nov 2020
11:45, Huntingdon

Has come on for last run at Uttoxeter but that was only second run for us and still feel the horse needs more experience. Will be better in time and also once handicapped, but any rain would be a plus.

Bayaanaat 
Sat 21st Nov 2020
11:45, Huntingdon

Bayaanaat pulled up at Bangor on his reappearance, it was desperate ground that day and whilst he handled soft ground on the flat he couldn’t cope with proper jumping heavy. That race is best ignored. Bayaanaat works nicely enough at home and he enjoys his jumping, but he’s probably a horse that will fare better once he has a handicap mark.
Cobh Kid 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
18:45, Newcastle

Nice horse that has been doing well at home, but debut run here so can be expected to learn a lot from this.

Outrage 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
18:15, Newcastle

Outrage - a rare attempt at 6 furlongs, although he has never won over more than the minimum distance (5f) he does have some decent form at this trip.

Timoshenko 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
15:45, Ascot

Timoshenko is a character.  He was a progressive stayer on the flat, and I was surprised he won on hurdling debut over 2 miles. He has run to a similar level of form since, but has failed to improve for the step up in trip. He ran well enough last time out in first time blinkers in a slowly run contest, and should improve for this more galloping track. Can run well, if he feels like it.....

Arvico La Angel 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
15:25, Chepstow

Hard to fancy on what we saw on debut when unseating her jockey early on. Hoping she can get further this time but one for the future and once handicapped.

Caltex 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
15:15, Ascot

Very disappointing last time up at Ayr no obvious explanation, a tougher race today but all his winning has been right handed so maybe that will help but on a recovery mission after last time but certainly better than that last effort.

Smiths Cross 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
14:50, Chepstow

Ran well on re appearance before bombing out last time a drop to 2m should help and hopefully will be happier back chasing but plenty of questions to answer - the Venetia William runner looks the one to fear.

Rosie And Millie    WINNER! winner

Ran a cracker behind a very useful sort - looks to have a nice season ahead.


Fri 20th Nov 2020
14:40, Ascot

Ran very well at Wetherby last time giving away any chance of winning by jumping right throughout should be much happier going right handed and that last run gives her a chance of this mark softer the better for her. Another hot affair though with the Henderson runner - Buzz - setting a high standard but not without a chance.

Kloud Gate 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
14:40, Ascot

Showed improved form back in 2018-19 when last seen. But another tough race and a tall order coming back from a long time off. Has had a few niggles - hence the time off - so really just hoping for a nice return and build form that.

Flaminger 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
14:05, Ascot

Won well at Fontwell on his first run back last month, but failed to build on that last time here. We are trying him over this longer trip for the first time so a bit of an experiment, but we feel it's worth a crack with this light weight. Ground is fine too and would have a small e/w chance, but another hot affair and until we know more about the trip probably not one to go overboard with.

In Rem 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
12:55, Ascot

Big ask here in a race like this and only third run for us. Does show ability, but will be seen in a better light once handicapped.

Bebraveforglory 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
12:30, Chepstow

One of the more experienced in the field but needs to bounce back from a poor run last time out here. Pulled too hard that day so we've been working on getting him settled and the drop back in trip here should help too. Ground fine and does show ability but might still need more time and will have to settle better here to get home in the testing conditions.

Three Ways 
Fri 20th Nov 2020
12:05, Catterick

Three Ways has some excellent form to his name, but hasn't been the easiest to train in the last couple of years and has some niggly injuries which have kept him off the track. However, the handicapper has given him a chance as a result, and he is off a very competitive mark.  He needed his seasonal reappearance when 6th at Aintree last month, and he should step forward from that effort. Not without a chance here.

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Top call from Julia!!


Thu 19th Nov 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Was unfortunate last run when nothing went her way in the race and she ended up getting shuffled back off a slow pace - probably put a line through that run and if she is in the same form as when she won here over CD the time before then she must have a good e/w chance again.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Another good run from Simon's horse.


Thu 19th Nov 2020
19:30, Chelmsford

Runner up earlier this week when caught close home. Blinkers replace the cheek pieces and should be thereabouts now he is better handicapped and obvious chance if he can back up Monday's effort.

Chitra 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

Consistent sprinter on the AW at this level and has run well the last twice with two close fifths at Lingfield - dropped a pound this time helps. Switch to Chelmsford is fine and a nice draw here today in 2. Jockey Richard Kingscote also gets on well with the horse - 5 of his 7 career wins have been with Richard riding.

Mr Scaramanga 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
16:30, Chelmsford

Winner here from wide draw on penultimate start and did nt quite get home over 10f last time at his favoured Lingfield. Only slightly penalised than when winning and better handicapped these days so could easily go close if things fall right for him again.

Zankala 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
15:50, Newcastle

Zankala runs in the 3.50pm at Newcastle over 7f. It looks a nice option for her with first time out winner The Sedberghian looking the horse to beat. She has shown a bit at home and I am hopeful of a nice first run. Tom Marquand takes the ride.

Sticky Situation 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
15:42, Wincanton

Konigsberg 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
15:33, Market Rasen

Pleasing debut at Newcastle in a NH Flat race on their AW back in Jan - Ran well for a lot of the way that day so the experience will be a plus here. Has done well since that first race and is a lot stronger too - the plan will be to go hurdling soon so be happy with another step forward here and get some more education into him.

Caen Na Coille    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner.


Thu 19th Nov 2020
15:20, Newcastle

Was an impressive winner over CD last time out and we are hoping to repeat the trick here today. She is clearly much better on the AW than she is on the turf and this track suits her down to the ground. She should go well again today.

Editeur Du Gite 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
15:12, Wincanton

Jumping Cats 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
14:42, Wincanton

First time in a handicap here today and that will help - should run a lot better now he's got a mark and not without a small place chance, but the easy winner last time out - Dollnamix - will be hard to beat for us all!

Amazing Red 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
14:20, Newcastle

Amazing Red runs in the 2.20pm at Newcastle over 1m4f. He has been knocking on the door a lot his year and now looks to be off a competitive mark for him. Mark Johnston's ever consistent The Trader looks the horse to beat on paper. James Doyle takes the ride.

Bridle Loanan 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
14:12, Wincanton

Tough race here today so might be a tall order on return run after a break - so even though the horse has been doing plenty at home will probably benefit from the run here today.

Twasnt The Plan 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
14:12, Wincanton

No secrets about this horse - we know he's got the ability to win a race like this but is still winless from 16 outings, with numerous place finishes to his name. Same again last time, when third of 6 at Exeter on his return and only a pound lower here. Conditions are fine again and should run his race again - but his form figures suggest if could be a place again - rather than a win - again here, let's hope they are wrong!

Landsman 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
13:40, Wincanton

Has shown good form in the past, but has had his issues too - only had 3 runs in the last 18 months or so. So, a bit to prove at the moment and also finished lame last time out at Sedgefield. Is fine now, but we'd like to just see a solid run here and go from there. Trying the visor on him too to help him concentrate, but a top half finish would be wonderful.

Dadsintrouble 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
13:30, Market Rasen

Hot race for the track - but we head here with a chance and worth a crack with a nice prize on offer. Ran well on his return at Hereford last month (2nd) and in this better race we have only 10st 4lbs to carry. Will love the ground and we think the visor will sharpen him up. Consistent profile and that last run showed us that he's still loving his racing, despite being 10 years-old now. Small each-way.

Sashenka    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice sort for the Scudamore yard.


Thu 19th Nov 2020
13:10, Wincanton

Nice recruit to the yard from the flat - first run for the yard after coming from the Sylvester Kirk team. Had a good record on the level too - winning 4 times and will probably get further than this trip today as she's won over 1m6f on the flat. Came to us fit and well too - only ran last month on the flat so hoping that fitness edge will play a part too. Schooled well and her flat speed will be a big plus if the jumps stays intact. Looking forward to seeing how she gets on, but not without a chance. Tom rides

Cap St Vincent 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
12:40, Wincanton

Pulled up when last seen at Ludlow back in Feb, but has had a nice break since and the softer/heavy ground that day didn't suit. Better ground here will help and we are starting him back over hurdles as has a 5lb lower rating. Drop in trip is fine too - stays a bit further, so we head here with a fair chance having been a horse that's gone well fresh in the past. Got the in-form O'Brien runner and a lightly-raced Nicholls entry to beat, but the O'Brien horse has to give us 6lbs so that helps. In a race that lacks depth, small e/w chance but might only be one place up for grabs if the main two run as the betting suggests.

No Anxiety 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
12:30, Market Rasen

No Anxiety is a nicely-bred individual who has taken a while for the penny to drop and I'm not sure it's dropped totally yet! He has shown a bit of promise, but needs to step forward to trouble the principles. I'm sure there is ability there, but he needs to mature and in time I do think he'll be okay.

Electron Bleu 
Thu 19th Nov 2020
12:10, Wincanton

Just the one career win and that came back in 2018 over fences - has run well the last twice off this mark over hurdles though (2nd both times), but is back from a break today so will improve. Saying that has been doing well at home of late and this looks a nice race to get going with him again. Ground and trip fine so not without an e/w chance, but a lot more exposed than the Henderson, Scott and Nicholls runners, so might be tough to beat them.

Pirate King 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Pirate King is coming back from a long lay-off but he is pretty fit and should be ready to go. He will need to be off a career high mark, but he is well drawn and loves the all weather

Via Serendipity    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to land the e/w money and another nice TQ View return.


Wed 18th Nov 2020
18:55, Kempton Park

Via Serendipity had genuine excuses last couple of starts (lost both front shoes at Yarmouth). He has a very good record on the all weather and has a cracking draw which means he will have no problem getting cover which is very important to him. He should run well.

Mymatemarmite 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
17:25, Kempton Park

A horse that is still finding her feet - average run on debut when down the field at Lingfield. The step up to a mile will help but more experience here will help and will move one step closer to getting a mark.

A Day Of Mischief 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
16:25, Kempton Park

Dropped 4lb for her last run but was down the field that day on handicap debut so a lot more required here. Had shown better form the time before though over this 6f trip so the return to this distance is a plus. A nice draw in 4 helps too - overall, more needed, but we think she can certainly run better than last time.

Robin Des Theatre    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Scu's horse.


Wed 18th Nov 2020
16:00, Ffos Las

Winning pointer that is only had the one run - first run for us but looks a nice mare and her experience (albeit limited) should be a help here. Won that point on soft ground, form of that hasn’t worked out brilliantly but she is a nice big mare who should handle conditions. Does everything well at home and hopefully can transfer that to the track

Sandaroc 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
16:00, Ffos Las

Sandaroc is by Shirocco and out of a bumper winner who was a half-sister to the prolific French winner Shanango. This is the third foal, and her brother was 2nd in a bumper and ran to a fair level of form. This big, strong filly won on her debut in a Point-to-Point bumper at Buckfastleigh, and looks to have a future under rules. She should appreciate this track and the ground, and she'd have a chance on her racecourse debut.

Cold Shoulder 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
15:40, Hexham

Another of ours that has a fair chance today in what looks a fairly open affair. Ran well on his return at Chepstow last month - when 5th of 13. Dropped a few pounds helps and has improved at home for that. Ground is fine and no reason why the track won't suit. Place claims for sure and another of my better chances on the day.

Pleney    WINNER! winner

Solid effort from Tim's horse.


Wed 18th Nov 2020
15:25, Ffos Las

Looks one of our better chances on the day. Blew away the cobwebs last time out here when staying on well to take fourth over this trip over hurdles. Back over fences here and only second try chasing, but is rated 6lbs lower so that helps. Charlie can claim 5lbs here too and despite a horse that's yet to win a race has the ability to win at this sort of level and seems well at home. The ground will bring his stamina into play and if his jumping holds not without an e/w squeak and looks one of my better chances on the day.

Wizards Bridge 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
15:25, Ffos Las

Black Kalarosa 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
14:40, Warwick

First run for 9 months, and she may well need it. She showed plenty of promise in the spring, however, and should make up into a competitive type at her level, that will probably not be today though!

Oriental Cross 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
12:55, Warwick

Did well at the end of last year - winning twice, but as a result went up the ratings and has struggled a bit since. Still 3lbs higher than the last win so does need to find a bit more, but has improved for that last run off a break. Any rain would help, but the ground should be okay - v.small e/w chance, but really the Hobbs and Williams horses looks the ones here.

Nada To Prada    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Scu's improving hurdler as expected.


Wed 18th Nov 2020
12:30, Ffos Las

A nice mare that we'd be disappointed if she's not going close here and really on these terms should be winning. Returned last month with a fair run at Hexham but has had a wind op since - So very pleased with that first time out run and the form of that has worked out well with the winner winning again since. Conditions will be fine and she will have come on from that first run is fit and well and looks the one to beat on paper.

Silver In Disguise    WINNER! winner

Beaten a fair way but a better run and one to note once getting a mark.


Wed 18th Nov 2020
12:30, Ffos Las

Winning Pointer in Ireland - first run for us last time at Bangor when down the field but that was his first run for just over 600 days. Will be better in time and another that will benefit from a handicap mark.

Dothraki Prince 
Wed 18th Nov 2020
12:20, Warwick

Still finding his feet with us - only third run for the yard. Needed it last time off a break so will strip fitter this time but will be more effective once handicapped - on a plus, will like the quicker ground here today.

The First Hurrah 
Tue 17th Nov 2020
16:15, Newcastle

Made a lovely debut at Kempton despite running green. She will definitely have come on for that run and this stiff 6f will suit. Can go well.

Vadream    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice sort for Charlie.


Tue 17th Nov 2020
16:15, Newcastle

Second runner in the race for us - a nice filly and could be a lovely horse next year. Her work has been very good and she is ready for the race on debut here, but as a side note, mine also always improve for the run.

Alex Gracie 
Tue 17th Nov 2020
15:50, Southwell

Only career win came on the turf at Thirsk back in September. But has some solid efforts on the AW despite not winning - been in the top three 7 times from 12 outings. Acts well on the surface here and was a fine third over this course and distance last time off this mark and Jonathan rides again to claim 5lbs. A similar run to last time must give her another e/w chance.

River Sprite    WINNER! winner

Nice run from this Kubler horse.


Tue 17th Nov 2020
15:20, Southwell

Little bit disappointing last time out, but was perhaps in wrong place the way the race developed. Cheekpieces on for the first time too. Not 100% certain to handle the surface but her mother was a winner on the dirt in the US, which is often a good pointer.

Hijran 
Tue 17th Nov 2020
14:33, Fakenham

Highly-tried last time out at Cheltenham but we are 6lbs better off here with the jockey claim and drop in the ratings. Slightly easier race here and in much better order at home. Track and ground are ideal too so certainly hopeful of a better run today. Still looks a competitive race though so only small e/w chance.

War Empress 
Tue 17th Nov 2020
13:50, Southwell

Has been so consistent this year - being placed nearly every run. Getting into a 0-60 here must surely give her a chance and Tyler Heard, who was third on her at Newbury when he was unable to claim in an apprentice race - but the good news is he can claim it here! We hope this will be her day before she heads to the Tattersalls Mares Sale.

Gleno    WINNER! winner

A strange race but stayed on really well to take this - another nice TQ View winner too!


Tue 17th Nov 2020
13:03, Fakenham

Won the last day at Lingfield. Raised 6lbs for that and got his fair share of weight, but hopefully on a track that might suit (likes to race up with the pace) which should give him every chance. Josh rides.

Gorhams Cave    WINNER! winner

No chance with the easy winner, but a step in the right direction.


Tue 17th Nov 2020
12:33, Fakenham

First run in a handicap which, in my opinion, he is not very well in but only time will tell. 

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Ran well for Simon.


Mon 16th Nov 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

Finally starting to get better handicapped and this looks more in his comfort zone. Remains a maiden but top rider booked and likely to be involved if he can get his confidence and the race goes well for him

Nightswimming 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

Lightly-raced 3 year-old that is only having her fifth run here. Ran better than finishing position suggests last time at Chelmsford and being 3lbs lower this time helps. Nice draw in 3 and we feel the longer trip here today will suit. Think she'll run better than her odds suggest.

Rydan 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

Star Dreamer 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
17:10, Wolverhampton

Star Dreamer has been desperately unlucky not to make a track before now. Small niggles have come at the worst time. I have had to rush her slightly to get here (she is in the sales next week), but she is well drawn (5) in a race that lacks depth.

Small Pianist 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
17:00, Kempton Park

Small Pianist is still learning and will be much more competitive once able to run in handicaps. Going back around a bend will definitely suit him though, but one for the future really.

Desert Marathon 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
16:25, Kempton Park

Desert Marathon is a nice little filly who has improved all year. Wide draw (12) makes things tougher but I can see her running a nice race.

Beryl Burton 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
16:10, Wolverhampton

Shown a bit of ability in first three runs, without winning. But is into a handicap now for the first time and that will help. Nice draw in 4 too and Luke a plus in the saddle, while we feel the cheekpieces will help here - small e/w chance, but still likely to do better in time and with more experience on her back - the George Scott horse looks the one to take the beating.

Little Boy Boru 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
15:50, Plumpton

In excellent form - stay very well and loves extreme/heavy conditions. Usually does very well in this sort of grade too and despite a rise in the weights after his second at Huntingdon last season - with the help of a 7lb claim - would expect him to go very close here today.

Call Off The Dogs 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
15:50, Plumpton

Hard to get too excited until we see a bit more on the track. But trying the first-time blinkers today to see if that helps. Best watched for now.

Waikiki Waves    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take this for the Moore yard.


Mon 16th Nov 2020
15:00, Leicester

Ran well the last twice at Fontwell, but it's nice to take him away from that track today (does most of his running there) - but is also a course winner here at Leicester. Is now only a pound higher than last winning mark so that would give him a fair chance. Each-way.

Isayalittleprayer 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
14:30, Leicester

Pleasing third on hurdles debut last time out at Fakenham at a track that didn't really suit her. Back on a more galloping track will suit and seems to have taken that last race well. Think we should have definite each-way chances here at a fair price.

Bad Boy Du Pouldu

14:20, Plumpton

Been having a lot of racing recently so that would be the only negative. Seems well at home though and we are taking 7lbs off today to help and the slight drop in trip is fine. Tight little race but should have every chance with the ground fine too.

Honorable 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
13:50, Plumpton

Been a bit disappointing of late but first run in a Selling Hurdle today so that will help a lot - looks a very poor race so expecting a much better run. Jamie rides.

Achy Breaky Heart 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
13:30, Leicester

First time chasing today, she has shown ability over hurdles, but can be fizzy and gets her timing all wrong. Hoping that chasing will give her a bit more time to sort herself out. She has schooled very well at home and whilst the main thing is a nice clear round if she settles she could well put in a good run.

Episode 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
13:30, Leicester

Had been off the track a while when running at Lingfield a month ago. I think Episode has come on for that run so I hope to see her with a decent each-way chance today.

Fume 
Mon 16th Nov 2020
12:30, Leicester

Not particularly well in at the weights today but working extremely well at home. But I just have slight reservations if the ground gets any softer as I know Fume is not in love with testing going.

Grandeur Dame    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Oliver's horse.


Sun 15th Nov 2020
16:05, Cheltenham

Grandeur D’Ame was impressive on his debut at Newton Abbot when winning nicely. It was how we hoped he’d run but he is still on the weak side so I wasn’t sure if he’d be able to cope with the soft ground at this stage. He came out of that race well and he has seemed more relaxed at home, it was a little bit of a concern first time out that he might boil over in the preliminaries as he was very gassy when he arrived here.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
15:30, Southwell

A bit better last time out here as the horse didn't get the best of runs - we are trying him back to 6f here too as seemed to get a bit tired the last twice over further. Hard to fancy still though on bare form so just be happy with a better effort.

Diable De Sivola 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
15:15, Fontwell Park

Been absent from the track a while after having a wind op. Ran some decent races in good company last year and appears to be off a reasonable mark. Conditions could be testing enough today for DIABLE DE SIVOLA'S first attempt over this trip but I hope to see him give a good account of himself today.

Weststreet 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
15:15, Fontwell Park

Weststreet has been ready to run for a while but I’ve been waiting for his favoured soft ground to coincide with a race over a longer trip, he’s a thorough stayer. He had a quiet season last winter but often horses like him that run over extreme distances especially on heavy ground can be like that, he didn’t run badly but he just didn’t sparkle. He has been in good form at home this autumn, he’s been trying to run away with Stefan on the gallops lately and there’s not many horses that can do that.

Nassalam    WINNER! winner

Looks a promising sort for the Moore yard.


Sun 15th Nov 2020
14:40, Fontwell Park

Debut run in England for NASSALAM but was placed second in France on his first run at Clarefontaine. I have been pleased with NASSALAM'S work at home and I hope I have done enough with him so he can give a good account of himself today.

Crosse Fire    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed again here.


Sun 15th Nov 2020
14:20, Southwell

Stalwart here - this will be his 123rd career run! Ran well again here last week too (2nd) off this mark and a repeat of that should see him go well. We are up in grade though, but that means he gets to race with 7lbs less weight than last time and we get weight from all the others. Very competitive, but he's in good heart so e/w chance again today.

Neff 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
13:30, Fontwell Park

NEFF ran some great races last season and was in good heart winning in his turn. Last couple of runs disappointing before he had a summer break and his first run back. Hopefully may have needed it and hoping that NEFF has come on for it. Second run after a wind op so I hope that NEFF arrives here today with decent each-way chances.

Samovar    WINNER! winner

Another good run from Scott's horse.


Sun 15th Nov 2020
13:10, Southwell

No hiding place for this horse these days - loves this surface and mainly never far away in his races here. Is a hard horse to win with though - 16 runs without a win, but many places. However, we are down into a Class 5 here and a mark of 69 looks very competitive for this horse. This looks his best chance for some time and should be going close. Luke Morris rides and knows the horse well.

Scale Force 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
13:10, Southwell

CD winner here but has been poor of late so need to see a return to form here first before being more confidence. George's 5lb claim helps though and we know the surface suits, but - as I say - just feel he's got a bit to prove at present.

Republican 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
13:00, Fontwell Park

Republican ran well enough on his first outing over fences at Ascot when finishing fourth. His jumping was good in the main, he was a bit brave at one or two but he quickly learnt from it and the fences around there are big. He will appreciate this longer trip today and after a nice introductory clear round I’m hopeful he can now build on that.

Driftwood 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
12:40, Southwell

Lightning Bug 
Sun 15th Nov 2020
11:40, Southwell

Bred to stay and going well at home. Hopefully she can settle early and will face the kickback here. Was very weak last year so just hoping for some improvement today really.

May The Sixth 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
20:30, Wolverhampton

Only fourth career run but has already gained a win and that came here two runs back - hence one of the reasons for coming back here. Same mark as last time but we are putting Jonathan Fisher on this time to claim 5lbs. Drawn okay in 7 too but this a slight step up in grade so will need to find a bit more.

Roundabout Magic 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
20:30, Wolverhampton

Multiple winner and regular runner at his favourite track Lingfield. Has run here before and just ok but no reason why he should not be suited to here. Arrives in top form and bit unlucky the last twice so could easily go well at a big price.

Lady of Aran 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Lady Of Aran has been a wonderful filly for the yard. She loves the AW and looks a picture. She has a bit to find at the weights but the small field will suit and she can run well this evening.

Lawmans Blis 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
17:30, Wolverhampton

Well-bred sort that is having his debut today - going well at home but likely to improve for the experience, but a nice draw in 2 and Luke will give him every assistance in the saddle.

Jersey Lady    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third and another nice TQ View return.


Sat 14th Nov 2020
15:55, Cheltenham

Goes without saying a hot race with a lot of early-season reputations on the line. Jersey Lady won her first race, a bumper at Ludlow, she showed a great attitude that day she got a bit tapped for toe turning into the hone straight before staying on strongly to the line - so the track today should suit her perfectly. This is a step up in grade but she is from a staying family so - as mentioned - this stiffer track should suit her. Each-way chance.

Golden Lips 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

She has ability and has run well in some decent races this season - including a second in the Oaks Trial at Lingfield in June. We feel the drop back in trip slightly will help as she likes to race up with the pace and she'll make a bold bid from the front again. Light weight (8st 8lbs) helps but she still has a fair bit to find with the Gosden horse - around 14lbs at my calculations. Therefore, will be hard-pressed to overturn that but still hopeful of a nice run and feel she'll run better than her odds suggest.

Debestyman 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
14:50, Cheltenham

Ran a great race last time - staying on at the same pace. Longer trip should be fine if ridden more patiently. Would not want going very soft but chances of mainly good to soft ground. Should go well again and won't be far away.

Early Morning Rain    WINNER! winner

Ran well for Jamie on chase debut.


Sat 14th Nov 2020
14:42, Uttoxeter

Early Morning Rain has won a bumper and two novice hurdles. She came up just short in a couple of listed contests last season, and we'll try to get some black type into her at some point this season.  However, we need to get her off and running over fences and this looks a nice starting point for her. It is a mightily competitive race, so a clear round is our number one objective and anything more will be a bonus. She jumps well and is fit, so let’s hope for an upset!

Jumping For Joy 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
14:30, Lingfield Park

The only benefit JUMPING FOR JOY gained from her debut run at Newmarket was racecourse experience. It was unfortunate that going conditions were extremely testing that day. At least the all weather surface may not prove quite so challenging for a novice. Still best watched and I will be pleased if I can get a decent run out of her today.

Ozzy Thomas 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
14:07, Uttoxeter

Last seen running third in a Hunters' Chase at Fakenham back in March, but is back into a handicap chase here on what looks a fair mark. Has been quite a hard horse to win - not won for about 3 years I think - with but often never far away in his races - been second 10 times! Ground and track are ideal but probably has it to do being 4lbs higher than last handicap win. Jeremiah McGrath rides.

King Athelstan 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
13:20, Lingfield Park

As already noted I have two in this same race however KING ATHELSTAN will be refreshed from a break which may just give him a slight edge but he does carry a lot of weight over two mile. Happy with KING ATHELSTAN though and I will be pleased if both my runners are in the frame.

Ballydoyle 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
13:20, Lingfield Park

BALLYDOYLE will have to take on stablemate KING ATHELSTAN which is a shame as I find these two horses hard to split as both closely matched and working well at home. I am sure BALLYDOYLE will settle better now over this trip but I think decent each-way chance here today.

Kilfilum Cross 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
13:05, Cheltenham

Loves Cheltenham and has been runner-up now in the last two Kim Muirs at the Festival. Only 3lbs higher than the Kim Muir run back in March this year and blew away the cobwebs at Fakenham last time out at a track that was plenty sharp enough for him and wasn't right after that so final result was better than it looked too. Carried the weight well that day and back at his favoured track must have a leading chance. Alex rides again - been on him the last twice - and having pleased us at home we are looking forward to today. Should go well and feel we've got a solid e/w chance.

Detatched    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Henry and the team.


Sat 14th Nov 2020
12:57, Uttoxeter

Former winning Pointer but is yet to win over hurdles from 7 runs but has shown ability - ran the useful Main Fact to 4 lenghts at Warwick back in January. Ran well for a time on his return run at Uttoxeter last month and has certainly improved for that at home and seems in good form. Dropped 2lbs from that last run and Ben rides this time to claim 7lbs so much better off. Small Each-way chance.

Good Luck Charm 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
12:10, Lingfield Park

GOOD LUCK CHARM looks to have a great opportunity here if he is in as good a place when he won here in August 2019. Appears to be sending out all the right signals at home and with 7 off his back and a reduced handicap mark GOOD LUCK CHARM has strong claims today. 

Valletta Sunset 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
12:10, Lingfield Park

Valletta Sunset has been disappointing since handicapping, he is on a low mark now and drops back to a mile but needs to show some improvement to get competitive here.

Bohemian Maestro 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
11:52, Uttoxeter

Happy with his run back in September on hurdles debut at Uttoxeter when 5th of 17. Can only improve for that here and not without small e/w claims in a race that lacks depth. But the Nicholls horse might be hard to beat and ultimately we'll be better once getting a handicap mark too. Trip and ground are fine.

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
11:40, Lingfield Park

We all look to have the Appleby horse to beat but our horse is fit and well after a small 3 month break. Nice draw in 5 helps and is dropped 2lbs from last time as well. She is a skinny filly, but has gone well at the track in the past and starting to look on a fair mark with last win coming off a 4lb higher rating. As I say, Mick's runner to beat, but feel we shouldn't be too far away and looks a nice e/w price.

Headley George 
Sat 14th Nov 2020
11:40, Lingfield Park

Still a baby and inexperienced but starting off the right mark and has plenty of ability. Most of these are battle hardened but it is low grade stuff so he could easily run well at a big price.

Global Art 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
20:15, Wolverhampton

He has recently hit a return to form on the artificial surfaces and looks to be enjoying his racing life again. This looks a nice option for him and I am confident he will be able to show his true colours again. The ones to beat on paper look to be Daheer and Light Up Our Stars. He has drawn well in 6 and should be in the frame. Andrea Atzeni takes the ride.

Scorched Earth 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
20:15, Wolverhampton

First run for us after disappointing last time out over hurdles. If he retains some of his old enthusiasm he could run into a place, and seems well at home, but it's more about finding out a bit some about him today.

Toro Dorado    WINNER! winner

Ran on well and only just failed to get up. One to keep on the right side of.


Fri 13th Nov 2020
19:45, Wolverhampton

He has been very consistent all year and rarely has he run a bad race. We felt after last start he may benefit from a further step up in trip and this will be his maiden effort over the 1m4f distance. The race looks competitive with Combine and Arabian King the horses to beat on paper. Toro has drawn well in 5 so we will be hopeful he can gain a good position and fingers crossed he will run a strong race. Andrea Atzeni takes the ride.

Seaborn 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
16:05, Cheltenham

Another competitive Cheltenham race, but that's to be expected. Has done well the last twice over hurdles - winning at Stratford and Fontwell, plus we've kept him ticking over with a few runs on the flat since. Well at home and so reasonable e/w chances as long as the ground is good and no worse.

Motdepas 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
16:05, Cheltenham

First run of the season. A tough ask in a competitive race, so probably best watched on this occasion.

Zarazena 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
15:55, Southwell

Still finding her feet - this will only be her fifth career run - took a step in the right direction last time with a 6th (of 11) at Exeter too. Dropped 4lbs for that and also has improved for that as it came off a around 9 months off. Easier track today too will help and in what looks an average affair hopeful she can continue to go the right way - each-way chance.

Hawa Bladi 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
15:40, Newcastle

Surprised us slightly last time when winning on the AW in a NH Flat race at Lingfield - but is a very well-bred sort that has done well at home since. On the turf today so much different conditions and hard to know anything about the others with most having their debuts. The experience we have will help but it also won't be easy having to give 7lbs away to most of the others in what looks a competitive race. However, to help on that front we've got Charlie riding to offset 5lbs of that 7lb penalty so that will certainly help. Must have a decent chance based on that last run, but I guess in a race like this there are plenty of risks attached to having a bet with so many lightly-raced sorts in the race.

Blunder Buss 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
15:25, Southwell

Did well on debut run for the yard at Hereford last month - that run blew away the cobwebs and he's done well in his work since. He's been dropped 2lbs by the handicapper too and the slightly shorter trip is fine. Looks a very average race and that should give us a much better chance. Hoping for a nice run and not without a chance of winning.

Kingswell Theatre    WINNER! winner

Great win for Scu's Cross Country horse!


Fri 13th Nov 2020
15:00, Cheltenham

Won this in 2017 so loves this track and this X Country test, but a very very strong renewal this year with the likes of Tiger Roll and Easysland in the race. Therefore, most of us are running out of the handicap so plenty to find at the weights with these big-guns, despite only having 10st in actual racing weight. We are actually 18lbs out of the handicap. But the horse is well and with his experience over the fences then if the race falls apart could steal third - but that really depends on how the Christian Williams runner takes to the course.

Sad Eyed Dylan 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
14:50, Southwell

Has shown ability in the past back last run was back in May 19 as had some issues - therefore, a long break to overcome and even though he's been doing plenty at home and this doesn't look a great race, he's got his fair share of weight (12-0). Therefore, that coupled with the time off suggest he's going to be one to note after a run or two under his belt, but as I say not without ability and one to note in similar races.

Le Boulevardier 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
14:15, Southwell

Le Boulevardier had good bumper form but he hasn’t transferred that to hurdles so far, unseating at the first on his debut and then not facing the first time blinkers last time out at Market Rasen. There is no doubt he has a mind of his own but he also has ability, we’ll give him a couple more runs to see if we can find a key then we’ll re-group with his owners and decide his future.

Beat The Judge    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Fri 13th Nov 2020
13:50, Cheltenham

Tricky little race with many chances, but the horse is well and should still have more to come. Ran well behind the useful Rouge Vif (3rd) here last month - that was a very pleasing run so if running as well as he did last time, should definitely be thereabouts.

A Time To Shine 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
13:40, Southwell

A Time To Shine is a big good looking horse by Malinas who finished third in a point to point before being purchased by Dominic Burke and Tim Syder. The form of that point has held up really nicely, even the horse that finished last has since won a novice hurdle at Uttoxeter. He is a very good jumper who still has some strengthening up to do and you won’t see the best of him until he goes chasing.

Monkey Puzzle 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
13:05, Southwell

Monkey Puzzle won first time out at Fontwell putting up a brave performance and really grinding out the win. He then finished third in a slowly run race at Exeter, He had to make his own running that day which doesn’t suit him – he’s very lazy in front and looks around everywhere, he was beaten quite a long way, but the first two were decent horses. He’s been in good form at home since, he’s won around here before and he’ll love the ground.

Briac 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
12:18, Newcastle

Last win came back in Jan 19 and has lost his way a bit since - but the good news is he's dropping down the ratings and is now only 4lbs higher than last win and Charlie takes off 5lbs so is now lower. Therefore, dangerous to rule out but does need to prove himself and is coming back from a break so no matter what will improve for this. Does seem well at home though so not without place claims off this mark - anything else a plus.

Optimistic Bias 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
12:02, Southwell

Still enthusiastic in his work and seems in good order. Long break but could go well fresh and not without an e/w chance.

Book of Gold 
Fri 13th Nov 2020
12:02, Southwell

Book Of Gold showed initial promise as a youngster but he has become frustrating. He won a chase at Warwick last December under a great front-running ride from Leighton, he had the run of the race that day and he got into a lovely rhythm, it was probably his Gold Cup. He then pulled up in two competitive chases after that. This ground may be a tad lively for Book but with limited opportunities at the moment and his preference for a small field he’s going to take his chance.

Alaskan Lady 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

Improved for her debut and ran a nice race when fourth last time stepped up to seven furlongs. She should build on that again now going over an extra furlong. The fifth from her last race has come out and won giving the form a bit of substance.

Capla Knight    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gay's horse.


Thu 12th Nov 2020
17:00, Chelmsford

A bit of a mix up when entered this horse as wasn't actually meant to be in this race as a first preference. A lot of unexposed runners in the race but the return to Chelmsford for us looks a big positive - we are the only CD winner in the field so that must count for something. Also got a big bogged down in the heavy ground at HQ last time so this will be more suitable. Several unexposed sorts in the race so hard to assess them and the Loughnane and Palmer horses probably set the standard on what we've seen on the track, but happy with Tom Marquand riding and must have a small each-way chance, but this looks a stronger race than the one he won here last month.

Smokey Malone 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
17:00, Chelmsford

Smokey Malone is having his third run here for a handicap mark, he has been given a bit of time to strengthen up so hopefully will show a bit more this time. He will be worth following when more competitive in handicaps.

Fort Denison 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
15:40, Sedgefield

Yet to win from 10 runs and returning from a break today so can be expected to improve for this today.

Tight Call    WINNER! winner

Jumped really well - another top TQ View winner this month!


Thu 12th Nov 2020
15:25, Ludlow

Another good chance in this race after running in a much better race last time should be more at home here. Won well in August on his return and despite being 5lbs higher here we've booked Connor Brace to take off 3lbs so actually only 2lbs higher than that win 2 starts ago. Does, however, have a lot of weight to carry so another step forward is needed. Acts well on good ground though and been freshened up with a few months off - has gone well off a break in the past. If pressed, looks the more reliable of our two in the race. Each-way

Canton Prince 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
15:25, Ludlow

Second runner in the race for us - did well a few seasons ago but has lost his way a bit since. Down the field in his last two races so a bit to answer at the moment, but is 3lbs lower and we are helping him out with Charlie claiming 5lbs too. We are also trying to get his confidence back by running him over hurdles and off this mark certainly can't be ruled out if bouncing back to form. Seems well at home and will also love the good ground, so not without a small e/w squeak.

Bobmahley 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
15:07, Sedgefield

Another of ours that probably needed the run last time as it came off a break but he still ran well to be third of 15 at Stratford. We feel the step up in trip will help after staying on well over around 4 furlongs shorter last time and gets in here off the same mark. Looks to have a nice chance.

Pontresina 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
14:40, Taunton

Pontresina won his last race at Kempton after being demoted to second on his first outing at Fontwell, so he thinks he’s won two-from-two and he’s been cock a hoop at home – the big dog, he’s even managed to unseat two of his jockeys in the last week – which is unheard of! He is a little legend who has been a consistent horse throughout his career, he’s not over big but he’s really taken to fences and even though he saves a little bit for himself he’s honest in his attitude.

Looksnowtlikebrian    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second for Tim Vaughan.


Thu 12th Nov 2020
14:40, Taunton

Top effort last time when a close third at Carlisle - travelled well for much of the way in that race and jumped better too as he's had a habit of hitting a fence or two in the past. Same mark here today and Richard Johnson remains in the saddle and has a great overall record when riding Brian - 5 of his 6 wins have been with Dickie riding. Looks a tight little race with the Sherwood runner respected - but we are happy with him and should have be in the thick of things. Each-way.

Monbeg Theatre 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
13:57, Sedgefield

Monbeg Theatre was a very decent staying hurdler in his younger days.  He has had his problems, but finally won a novice chase at the age of 11 last month.  Up just 2lbs for that victory, he has the ability to win off again and this looks the right race for him.  That said, it does look a tight little race but a reproduction of his latest effort should see him go close again.

Tinsmith 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
13:30, Taunton

Tinsmith hasn't been blessed with a huge amount of luck in his life, and he fell at the first on his hurdling debut last year and broke his ribs. He jumps well, but just over jumped that day, and after a long recovery, he is ready to run again. It almost goes without saying, but we're looking for a nice clear round today, and anything more is a bonus.

Hickeys Rock 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
13:07, Ludlow

Only had two runs for us as was with Mouse Morris in Ireland before that. No great shakes on debut but needed that run after a time off. Dropped 10lbs for that so should have a better chance but still a lot to prove at the moment and trying the visor on him - need to see more on the track really and might just need a few more runs.

Crystal Lad    WINNER! winner

Solid third from Gary's horse.


Thu 12th Nov 2020
13:00, Taunton

CRYSTAL LAD is in good shape after a disappointing run last time. Although not well in with some of the others in this Selling Hurdle - but well after a small break and should still have every chance today, with the Newland and Murphy runners the obvious dangers.

Plenty Of Butty 
Thu 12th Nov 2020
12:52, Sedgefield

Run well the last twice didn’t do much wrong in defeat last time. Slight concern on slightly softer ground today (won on good) but think he should handle good to soft no problem doesn’t look the deepest of races and a repeat of his last couple of runs should see him go very close.

Boma Green    WINNER! winner

Another solid e/w run from Charlie's horse.


Wed 11th Nov 2020
18:35, Kempton Park

Hated Newcastle last time out so put a line through that race. Step up to a mile is a plus and he will be much better suited to going around a bend. He is well drawn today too so should go well.

Pride Of America 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
18:35, Kempton Park

One win from 6 starts but that came on the AW at Wolves so expected to be fine here at Kempton - Drop back to 1m will also suit after getting stretched over 1m2f last time in soft ground and is 2lbs lower this time. We also feel the cheekpieces will help him settle better and Tom Marquand, who rode last time, is of course a bonus in the saddle. Would need to improve a bit but if the headgear helps on that score would have an e/w chance.

Mariegold 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
17:35, Kempton Park

Is a lovely big filly who should make a decent 3 year-old. She has done plenty of work at home and this is a perfect starting point. Would be disappointed if she didn't show some promise.

Legends Ryde 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
16:05, Bangor

Was a Listed bumper mare and after a wind op she won her novice hurdle and looked well-handicapped going to the mares Grade 2 Final at Newbury in the Spring. That obviously didn't happen but she remained a novice until December under the new rules post Covid so we had a crack at the Persian War at Chepstow last month. Unfortunately the going was a bit quick for her and ultimately she was put in her place. Back in calmer waters here - she should get back on track and have every chance of getting her head in front again.

Blazer Two 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
16:00, Kempton Park

Goes well enough at home and has done nothing wrong in his work at home. This does look competitive looking at the yards involved and those that have run already, have done so at a decent level. Therefore, just really be happy to get going with him and go from there.

Czech Her Out 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
15:41, Exeter

Has finished in behind a horse called Cotton End the last twice, but ran well again last time out when third at Hereford - that came over 2m3 1/2f but the drop back to 2m1f here on this stiffer track will be fine. Same mark and slightly softer ground is also fine and with the horse that beaten us the last two times not in the race that helps! However, the CD winner Breffniboy might be hard to beat after winning well last time, but our horse is in good form. This does look competitive for the grade but we still think she shouldn't be too far away.

Sussex Ranger 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
14:36, Exeter

First run of the season through no fault of his own and a very competitive race on a tough track so let's hope Sussex Ranger can build on where he left off - last seen winning at Newbury over fences in Feb. Been doing plenty at home but went up 8lbs for his last win 9 months ago so could find this a test today - unless, of course, the handicapper is correct and he is an improved horse.

Manning Estate 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
14:36, Exeter

Flash, as he's known at home, finished a well beaten third last time out on his second outing over fences, the winner that day was El Presente so with hindsight it probably wasn’t too bad a run - with that horse franking the form since and winning the Badger Beers Silver Trophy last weekend too! Flash had blinkers on last time out to sharpen up his jumping, I’m not sure they made any difference or even if he liked them so I’ve left them off today. This track should suit him today, it’s a lovely course for novices and because Flash is a confidence horse I’d like to get him a few nice clear rounds under his belt and hopefully he’ll keep improving - but the horses overall seem to be running well so you never know! Flash is pretty easy to deal with, he was Jack The Lad as a youngster but he’s grown up a lot now. Brendan Powell rides.
Adherence 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
14:05, Exeter

Was running well last time out at Taunton until unseating - that came back in March so had plenty of time to get over that run and schooled well since. Returns on the same mark here than when last seen - trip and ground are fine too and we feel he's benefitted from the break. Only niggle would be that he's got a bit to prove over this trip still, but that last run - until unseating - gave us encouragement. Small e/w chance, but like a lot of ours at the moment, likely to improve for the run but one to note in the coming months.

Oneida Tribe 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
14:05, Exeter

Will benefit from having a run, but has been working well at home, so one to keep an eye on for the future.

Take Em Out 
Wed 11th Nov 2020
12:55, Exeter

A horse we like but has also had some issues - hence the time off. Last seen winning well at Stratford back in July 19 over fences on only his second chase start so it was frustrating to not progress with the horse. However, delighted to get going again with him and hoping to ease him in gently with a run over hurdles here. Returns on a fair mark and Charlie's claim (3lbs) helps too - trip and ground okay as well and has been doing plenty at home ready for this. Overall will of course improve for the run, but has gone well fresh in the past - just not as fresh as 486 days! Small e/w chance, but will certainly come on for this.

Maysong    WINNER! winner

Top effort from Ed's horse.


Tue 10th Nov 2020
18:25, Newcastle

Maysong runs in the 6.25 at Newcastle over 7 furlongs. The ground was very heavy at Doncaster last start and didn’t seem to be to his liking so a return to the All Weather we thought may see the best of him again. Richard Fahey’s horse look to be the one to beat on paper. Ben Curtis takes the ride.

Roca Magica 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
17:25, Newcastle

Roca magica runs in the 5.25pm at Newcastle over a mile. She has been unlucky on her last couple of starts when being drawn badly. Her mark is at a level now where she has won before and I am hopeful of a strong run. The stiff mile at Newcastle should suit and it looks a nice option for her. Callum Shepherd who knows her inside out takes the ride.

Numero Uno 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
16:12, Hereford

Lightly-raced still with just 4 runs over hurdles. Took a step forward last time out at Musselburgh too back in Feb with a fair third and not beaten far. Has done well over the summer and feel there is more to come from him. Will probably just improve for the run though but has conditions to suit so no shock to see a better run than odds suggest.

Durouyn 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
16:12, Hereford

Last run would have brought him on and is 5lbs lower here but more needed on that run so best watched until we see improvement on the track. But is a big chasing type that should do well in the future.

West On Sunset 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
15:50, Huntingdon

Nice filly but in a very competitive-looking NH Flat race here today so only e/w claims would be advised. One to note going forward though. 

Countess Reach 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
15:50, Huntingdon

Played up a bit last time - and was slowly away and then eventually unseated her jockey so it all went wrong! More experience in the saddle this time will help and seems well at home, but hard to fancy on that last run so really just hoping for a better showing to give the horse confidence - and will be better once handicapped .

Court Glory 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
15:37, Hereford

Was disappointing the last day, but should be better for it as it came off a break and a 5lb drop in the ratings will also help. Jeremiah McGrath knows the horse well and rides again - looking for a step forward here and should improve on that last effort. Should have more to offer and small e/w claims but a bit to prove at the moment.

Timcoda 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:53, Lingfield Park

Timcoda has threatened to win us a race, but seems to have come up short on a few occasions. He is on a winnable mark now, and he will have improved from his seasonal debut. He should appreciate the re application of a tongue tie, and the blinkers, and has the ability to feature in the finish today. With the yard in-form - let’s hope his winning opportunity is today!

Akkapenko 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:45, Huntingdon

Ran a blinder at Ffos Las on his return last month - only getting run out of things in the closing stages really. 2bs higher for that but we come here dropping in trip as a course winner too. Will stay beyond this distance so hoping we can go well again today on his favoured good ground - Charlie rides again to claim 5lbs, but even though a career-high mark must have a fair chance again today and looks our best option of a winner today.

Strike The Flint 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:45, Huntingdon

Last run was pleasing at Kempton - gaining in confidence and running on well behind some extremely useful types. Will be a lot more competitive in this company and it would not be a surprise for her to run into a place here - albeit she is ultimately a stayer.

Mrsgrey 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:45, Huntingdon

Yet to win from 10 runs but is certainly better than what she's shown - a recent wind op will hopefully help her and she's dropped in grade here too, plus racing off 5lbs lower than last time. Starting to look well handicapped and if the wind op works then would have a chance, but these are a few 'if's that she needs to prove to us on the track.

Imphal 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:23, Lingfield Park

Probably our best chance of the day if able to give weight all round. Ran a pleasing race here last time over further and also met a bit of trouble in the race that day too. Drop in trip is fine too and handles the ground well enough. Is also first time in a a handicap over hurdles so that will help.

Darkest Day 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:23, Lingfield Park

Nice horse. Another that we are not quite sure how he will cope with the ground today but if doing so, should have every chance.

The Fresh Prince    WINNER! winner

Top training performance from Oliver.


Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:15, Huntingdon

Prince is a horse with plenty of ability but he has been a nightmare to train, he’s had all sorts of issues mostly niggly things but he did have a tendon strain in August 2018 which required a twelve month spell on the sidelines to recover. He takes a lot of work to get fit because he does things fairly easily on the gallops, we have done plenty with him but he will obviously be sharper for the race.

Hard To Forget 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
14:07, Hereford

Did well last season around this time of the year, but his last two runs were well below par - we've given him a long break to get him back and he seems well at home for the time off. Stays further than this 2m5f trip so we'll try and make use of that and the ground is fine. 8lbs higher than last win, but that was an easy 16 length success so certainly still feel he's got something to offer at the mark and still only 7 so should have more improvement to come. Tight little race but being a course winner that will help - but overall expect the horse to just need this and the Lee runner - Town Parks - is the one to beat for me.

Tractor Fred 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:53, Lingfield Park

Tractor Fred was knocking on the door all of last season, but his form dropped away towards the end of the season.  Back off a nice break, and fresh from a wind operation he is on a competitive mark. He will improve for this run, but should have a lot more to offer this season now fully mature and on the back of the wind op.

High Up In The Air 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:53, Lingfield Park

Been working well but like most of ours, could benefit from his first run this year.

Mustang Alpha    WINNER! winner

Another nice winner for the in-form Snowden camp.


Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:37, Hereford

Mustang Alpha was placed in two novice hurdles over 2m, but disappointed on handicap debut when stepped up to 3m. Back down to 2m3f last time, he ran well in a Class 2 handicap at this track last month. Up 2 furlongs here is fine and down in class, he should run another good race, and not be too far away. Max Kendrick rides and takes off 3lbs.

Kchou Du Pecos Aa 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:37, Hereford

A fine horse that came to us earlier this year from the Willie Mullins yard - ran well on debut for us back in March too and has benefited from a wind op over the summer. That last run was even better than it looks on paper as he burst a blood vessel in the race too and was still only beaten just over 5 lengths. Up in trip here as we feel that will help too and even though it's probably wise to taking a watching brief after what happened in his last race, he's doing well at home and should certainly have more to offer. We'll be delighted with a solid run here and the plan is to go chasing soon after this. The Ralph horse - Mick Mona - looks the one to beat for me.

Isla's Dream 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:23, Lingfield Park

First run for two years. Not sure how she will cope with the ground so probably best watched on this occasion.

Loco Coco 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:15, Huntingdon

Winning pointer that is having his debut over fences and in a handicap today - both those things should see him in a better light. Chasing has always been the plan for him but we've taken our time with him. Also probably better on good ground so that will suit today and Charlie helps with the 5lb claim. Can be expected to improve for this after almost a year off, but has been doing plenty at home and hopefully is ready to kick-on over fences now. Each-way chance.

Mr Palmtree    WINNER! winner

Well done to the Dickin yard and a nice TQ View winner on the day too!


Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:07, Hereford

An easy winner last time, he should go close again if turning up in the same mood! He seems well at home and hoping for another big run.

Wizards Bridge 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:07, Hereford

Not getting any younger at 11 but has won five times over fences but well down the field last time out on debut for us so loads more needed - his last win came in April 18 though. Is 6lbs lower than his last run and will be better for that effort but still hard to get too excited at the moment until we see more on the track.

Some Finish 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
13:07, Hereford

Who knows! Form is generally a P or a 1, although the p's are way ahead at present! Flying at home but impossible to be confident as generally has his own ideas - capable if in the mood, but not really a betting option.

What A Glance 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
12:53, Lingfield Park

What A Glance has had one previous run in a point to point where he pulled up on unsuitably soft ground. He wants decent ground hence why he is running in an all weather bumper today. He is owned by the family of my new pupil assistant Tom Britten, he’s been at Rhonehurst for just over a month and the work he’s done has been good.

Thats Me 
Tue 10th Nov 2020
12:37, Hereford

Happy with his run last time out here on debut for the yard when 5th (of 12) behind a fair sort. That came off a long break too - over 500 days - so will certainly improve for it. Probably doing his best work at the finish that day so might just get outpaced again over this 2m trip with the Bailey, Fry and Skelton runners setting a fair standard, but is a horse to note for the future and when also getting a mark.

Bolt N Brown    WINNER! winner

No chance with the hot favourite but still a solid run from Gay's horse.


Tue 10th Nov 2020
12:15, Huntingdon

Only average runs on the flat recently but is back over the sticks here and is 1-from-1 over hurdles after winning at Ludlow back in Feb. As a result of winning though does have to give weight away to most of the others here and that might be his undoing. Fit and well though and will make a bold bid - hopefully from the front - again, but the Skelton and Henderson horses are the obvious ones in the race.

Visibility 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
20:05, Southwell

Second run for us after coming from the Martyn Meade yard. Down the field last time here but we are 7lbs better off with the jockey's claim too. Was also running well for much of the way last time over a mile so the drop back to 7f will help and is also back into a Class 6. Better expected and not without e/w claims.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
20:05, Southwell

Been very poor of late and hard to get excited - is now 0-from-9 in his races and not been placed either. Best watched until we see more on the track - if and when that might be!

Cape Greco 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
19:35, Southwell

Probably our best chance on the day - Dropped a pound for his last run when 5th at Kempton but George riding here to claim 5lbs as well. CD winner here at Southwell too and the drop back to 7f will suit. We are putting the visor on for the first time as well as we think this will help, while draw 3 is the icing on the cake. Should go well.

Bond Angel 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
19:35, Southwell

CD winner in the last but having her first run for us so we'll find out more about the horse here and not been on the track for 269 days so will naturally improve for this. Last two wins over this track came over a mile though so will stay further than this 7f trip, but they also came in Claimers so a bit to prove now back in a handicap. Last win in a handicap was off a 2lb lower rating so we are helping with Jonathan taking off 5lbs.

Holiday Magic    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second and should be winning soon.


Mon 9th Nov 2020
19:35, Southwell

Fair performer over the years and has settled in well with us. Sliding mark should give him and e/w chance based on past form.

Sociologist 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
19:05, Southwell

Another of ours that goes well here and is often in the shake-up in his races. Placed again last time out (3rd) on the turf and no issue back up in trip. Should make another bold bid but with just 2 wins from 34 starts not one to totally rely on re winning.

Samovar 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
18:05, Southwell

Another runner in this race and another that we all know loves Southwell and is often in the mix. 15 races without a win now but placed many times and has actually been fourth in his last 4 races. 2lbs lower this time so that gives him a chance and a nice draw in 3. Should be bang there with Luke Morris riding and having a good record of being placed on the horse - his last rides on him read 2-2-2-3-4-4.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Placed for Scott and the team.


Mon 9th Nov 2020
18:05, Southwell

Decent and tough sprinter that is never far away in his races - last win came off a pound lower mark on the turf in Sept but is also a CD winner here at Southwell. David Probert rode him for that last win too so is back in the saddle and hoping he can work some magic again. Should be competitive in this grade and in an open race must have e/w claims.

Moveonup 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
17:35, Southwell

Up 5lbs for his win here last time out but more needed now too upped in grade. Is in good order with himself though and seems to enjoy this 6f trip these days. Callum continues in the saddle and can claim 7lbs again so should go well if running to that same level as last time - but just feel he needs to improve a bit on that too.

Crosse Fire    WINNER! winner

Went close for Scott and the team.


Mon 9th Nov 2020
17:35, Southwell

122nd career run here and as we all know loves it here at Southwell. 12 runs without a win though and now 8 years-old but the positive is he's down to a mark of 68 and considering he won last Sept off 80 would certainly make him dangerous to dismiss in a race like this and into a Class 5 - should go close.

A Pint Of Bear 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
17:05, Southwell

Nice 2 year-old that got off the mark here over 5f last time out and ran that day as if this step up to 6f will be within range. Similar contest so if improving for the extra furlong than would have a chance and unlike some of the other main runners, we at least know he likes and handles the fibresand. We do have a bit to find on these terms though with the George Scott runner - Charlie Fellowes - who is rated 17lbs ahead of us - and we only get 7lbs from.

Professor Galant    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gay's horse.


Mon 9th Nov 2020
17:05, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us and our better chance. Has run okay here in the past and ran a blinder to be a close second at Wolves last time out. A bit to find with the Dixon and Scott horses on the ratings, but we get in here with a low weight (8-7) and George helps further with his 5lb claim so that would certainly help to bring her in to the equation.

Piranhadrama 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
17:05, Southwell

Only second career run - down the field on debut at Wolves back in Sept. We gave her plenty of time to get over that run and will be better for that experience so certainly expect a lot better showing here. But will also likely be better with more runs and with a handicap mark. 

Sharp Operator 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
16:35, Southwell

First run for us. Has had plenty of racing over the last few years. Trying a new trip which is an experiment. We hope he can settle and enjoy himself but may need the run after a short break.

Auba Me Yang 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
16:15, Chepstow

Auba Me Yang was very green when he made the running on debut but stayed on well in a slowly run contest to be 3rd. He will have improved enormously for that run, and should be sharper as a result. This looks a warmer race though, but I am looking forward to seeing him out again.

Vision Clear 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
15:53, Kempton Park

Bebraveforglory 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
15:45, Chepstow

Ran fourth (of 9) behind a useful sort last time out here but the form of that race has since been franked and has come on for that effort at home. Has run okay on heavy ground when Pointing so hopeful he'll be okay today and the longer tips will help too. Can't rule out place claims, but it's a race that should be going to the Nicholls horse - Brewers Project.

Paseo 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
14:48, Kempton Park

Paseo has had a break since his last race where he ran a bit flat. He is an enthusiastic member of the string and is a happy jaunty person who loves his work. First run back for around 3 months so no matter what will improve for this too.

Kalahari Queen 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
14:40, Chepstow

Kalahari Queen was a useful novice hurdler and chaser, and was placed in a Grade 2. She lost her way last season, but showed she still retains ability when 2nd last time out over fences on her seasonal debut. That confidence boosting run should put her back on track, and it'll be interesting to see her out today over hurdles off a much reduced mark.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
14:25, Carlisle

Kiltealy Briggs was a useful novice hurdler last season, and has always been a chaser in the making. His dam was a half sister to a Grand National winner, and so he looks sure to keep improving as he matures. He jumps super, and I am very much looking forward to seeing him make his chasing debut today. It looks a warm event and over the minimum trip, whatever he achieves today he will improve on, but it is a lovely place to start him off and the prizemoney is exceptional.

Chimes Of Dylan 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
14:05, Chepstow

Returns off his last winning mark so can't totally rule out but like a lot of ours at the moment is returning from a long break so can be expected to improve for this, while he might have just liked better ground.

Tara Well 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
13:30, Chepstow

First run after a long break, and she usually does need her first one back. Working well at home, and could run into a place if not too stuffy after a longish lay-off.

Working Class 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
13:10, Kempton Park

Working Class will love this good ground, he has schooled very well at home and he has grown up a lot since we’ve had him. He was extremely strong originally, it’s been a process to switch him off enabling us to run him over further, he’s always wanted a trip but he has been a work in progress.

Outisaid    WINNER! winner

Ran on well - a much imroved run from Henry's horse.


Mon 9th Nov 2020
13:00, Chepstow

Ran a bit better last time out so that was encouraging and we get in here 6lbs lower too. We also feel the longer trip will be in his favour and has handled softer ground in the past. Still more needed but with the handicapper relenting a bit seems to have a better chance than recent runs - small e/w chance.

Rollercoster 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
13:00, Chepstow

Dothraki Prince 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
12:30, Chepstow

Second runner in the race for us and our better chance - has shown a fair level of form in bumpers last year and despiting being beaten at the time ran well enough until falling on hurdles debut at Taunton last time. That came around a year ago as had a few issues since but seems ready to run again. One to note for the future, but will come on for the run and the top two in the betting should be fighting this one out so third or fourth might be the best we can hope for in a race that lacks depth.

Arvico La Angel 
Mon 9th Nov 2020
12:30, Chepstow

Filly that is having her debut run here today - goes well enough at home, but best-watched until she gets more experience - the race sponors look to have a great chance here though with Seelotmorebusiness.

Full Of Roque 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
16:25, Ffos Las

Yet to win but only had 6 runs under rules and only second run here in a handicap. Found the longer trip stretching him at this stage last time so the drop back to 2m a plus and is 5lbs better off here (including the jockey claim). Ground is okay too - should be more to come from him, but e/w claims here as returning from a break too so no matter what will improve for this as well.

Williamdeconqueror 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
16:10, Stratford upon Avon

A nice 4 year-old that we are looking forward to running today but first time on the track so will, of course, learn a lot from this today and with more experience will be heading over hurdles and then hopefully fences in time.

Guguss Collonges 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
16:00, Sandown

Debut run today for this 4 year-old - likely to need more time and will certainly benefit for the experience here today so a watching brief at this stage of it's career.

Singlefarmpayment 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
15:30, Sandown

A horse that is well-known to many that came to us from the Tom George yard and so is having his first run for us. We had a nice winner for the owners yesterday too so would be great to add to that here. It's no secret that this horse has ability but has been hard to win with over the years - just 1 chase success from 18 runs, but 5 seconds! Has dropped to a fair mark though and should find things easier in this veterans race - running against horses aged 10 or older. Trip is fine and likes the good ground too - first run here at Sandown too so that might help freshen him up and no reason why it won't suit being a sound jumper. Competitive race, but a delight to have in the yard and would have e/w claims here.

Seaston Spirit    WINNER! winner

A slightly surpising win for Oliver's horse, but certainly a horse to note next time based on this.


Sun 8th Nov 2020
15:25, Ffos Las

Seaston Spirit had a good season over fences last winter winning three times on his favoured soft ground, there were no suitable chases available for him to run in so he’s back over hurdles today. He is a very good jumper of a fence so hurdles wouldn’t play to his strengths but with Kai’s ten pound claim it does give him more of a chance. He is a lazy horse at home so he will definitely improve for this outing.

Trixster 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
15:25, Ffos Las

A horse we like and has so far won 3 of his 12 runs over hurdles. A bit disappointed with his last run at Hexham when a beaten favourite but that make a bad mistake late on that day so it could have been very different. Has done well for his break and a horse that's gone well fresh in the past too. Has also run well in this sort of company and around this mark in the past so with Charlie also taking off 5lbs that helps. There are several at the top of the market that have had the benefit of recent runs so they might just have the fitness edge on us, but he's a consistent sort that would still have place claims here if putting his best foot forward.

Ask Himself 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
15:00, Sandown

Won well at Warwick back in February, but disappointed on his return at Bangor in September. However, had an excuse that day as burst a blood vessel and bled from the nose. Has had a small break since and nice to get going with him again. Softer ground is fine and certainly a lot better than that last run but probably wise to just watch on the track after what happened last time. In a race that lacks depth could easily hit the frame at a price, but really be delighted with an incident-free round and build from there. 

Bassarabad 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
14:50, Ffos Las

Trip and ground are fine and has run well at the track in the past. Yet another of ours though that is coming back from a break though so will improve for this. But is starting to look a bit better treated off a mark of 109 and with Charlie's 5lb claim too, so could surprise, but certainly one to note going forward. The in-form Bowen horse looks the one that sets the standard.

Alaskan Boy 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
14:35, Stratford upon Avon

The favourite seemed to win very easily last time out and will be hard to topple based on that. Our horse is coming back from a long time off too - last seen running in France in March 19. Also first run for us, but seems a nice horse and has settled in well, but we'll find out more here and will improve for the run. Should be one to note going forward though with a few runs under his belt.

Dominateur 
Sun 8th Nov 2020
14:25, Sandown

After falling in his first chase at Carlisle Dominateur had a good season over fences last winter, winning a couple of soft ground chases at Chepstow. His final race was in the Midlands National and it was just a step too far at that stage of his career. The ground today wouldn’t be ideal for him but he has to begin somewhere and with only three runners it seemed an ideal starting point. But obviously does have a bit to find with Nicky and Harry's horses on the ratings too.

Was too free last time in what turned into a slowly run affair due to the going changing to soft. Mainly looking for him to settle today and put in a nice performance. May take a couple of runs for him to learn to switch off but should run a pleasing race still.

Spot on call from Gary - a horse to note!

No real standouts from my 4 runners today, but if pushed this is probably my best chance of something. A nice horse that we like a lot and did well on debut in a bumper at Huntingdon in March. Has done well since over the summer and looks a nice prospect now hurdling. Looks a decent race on paper though with the Lacey, Murphy and Pauling horses the main ones, but our fella certainly won't disgrace and could easily sneak into the frame if one of that trio runs below-par. Regardless of what happens here this is a horse to note going forward!

Another returning from a break here so will improve for this. Got tired in the heavy ground last time at Ffos Las so the break has done him good and the better ground today will help. We are also putting a tongue-tie on him for the first time to help and this drop in grade will also be more to his liking. The fact it looks a poor race would give us an e/w squeak but will also benefit from blowing the cobwebs away.

Sevarano    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice chaser in the making for Oliver.

Sevarano finished off last season with a decent second in the EBF final at Kempton, he had been consistent in his four previous starts including two wins. He is a tall leggy horse who had shown glimmers of ability before last season but he needed to strengthen up in order to finish his races. He has schooled very well at home, he always jumped his hurdles like a chaser so I’m hopeful fences could bring about more improvement in him. Obviously be delighted with a good clear jumping round, but does look to hold every chance if his jumping holds out.

Bit to prove at the moment and comes here off the back of a fall at Plumpton last month. Is okay after that though and that run would have blown some of the cobwebs away. He's also a better horse here at Sandown fo some reason so that was one of the reasons for coming here (course winner) so with a light weight too (10-9) can't be totally ruled out at his favoured venue.

Top run from Suzy's horse - will be certainly winni
