Gary Moore
Tara's Light 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
16:35, Fontwell Park

Tara's Light makes her debut in this bumper. She's a Kayf Tara full-sister to two previous winners both more than useful and trained here. We're hoping she can make a positive start for Heart of the South Racing.

Waikiki Waves 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
16:00, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

Waikiki Waves briefly suggested he was returning to form when 2nd at Lingfield in November, but a return trip there was a reversion to the reluctant chaser that he'd appeared to have become. Hard to predict this CD winner, but he's clearly not one to rely on nowadays.

Oliver Sherwood
Mystic Man 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
15:35, Southwell

Mystic Man was a nightmare to ride when he first arrived with us. He used to panic and throw himself about and that wasn't nice for his jockeys. Fortunately our team including Lewis and Vic have done a good job with him and now anyone can ride him. He made a noise on horrible ground at Leicester so we sent him away for a procedure and we've had to take our time so he won't be as sharp today as would have been the case. He is a good jumper and will be going over fences next season. This is his third hurdles run and he will probably fare better in handicaps in the future.

Jamie Snowden
Doc McCoy 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
14:25, Southwell
DEC Odds: 5.9(Betfair Exc)

Doc McCoy is bred on the same Getaway - Oscar cross as top-class Sporting John. He was the runaway winner of a maiden point on his debut by 20 lengths, 6.5 seconds faster than any of the other three maidens on that card. He was a good 3rd on racecourse debut in the autumn and we've given him time to strengthen. He works well and should have a bright future. The race looks tight but he shouldn't be too far away.

Legal Rights 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
14:15, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 5.3(Betfair Exc)

Legal Rights won three times last winter including over this CD in February but he hasn't managed to replicate that yet this season. His mark has dropped a little and he ought to be able to be competitive at this level. Place chances.

Royal Lake 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
14:15, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 25(Betfair Exc)

Royal Lake didn't take to chasing so we've brought him back hurdling and he ran okay under top-weight in horrific ground at Uttoxeter, staying on strongly for sixth place at the finish. His confidence has improved for that outing so hopefully he can be competitive again at this level. 

Darebin 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
13:40, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 9(Betfair Exc)

Darebin has dropped a few pounds on the basis of his three runs from the autumn on but there was a glimmer of hope about his latest run at Sandown. He's a course and distance winner here and hopefully he can run into the frame in this smallish field.

Inneston 
Sun 29th Jan 2023
13:05, Fontwell Park
DEC Odds: 2.78(Betfair Exc)

We were disappointed initially when Inneston failed to win on stable debut, finishing only 3rd to our other ex-French newcomer Jupiter Du Gite at Newbury. He continues to work well and there's no reason to relate that run to the winner's over-exuberant defeat at Cheltenham yesterday. Hoping he can live up to his home work today. 

Isayalittleprayer 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
20:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 9.8(Betfair Exc)

Isayalittleprayer had been off for almost two years when returning for a couple of runs over jumps either side of Christmas. She made little impact then but her best form of her career has been on AW so it will be interesting to see whether she retains any of that old ability.

Charlie Fellowes
Seasett 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
19:00, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

Seasett has been very inconsistent since returning after a break in the middle of last year, although his best recent performance came over course and distance in November. He seems in good order at home and is off a mark he can definitely win from. I would not be surprised to see him bounce back today.

Michael Scudamore
Mofasa 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
15:35, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 20(Betfair Exc)

After two good wins including around here it was probably one run too soon when Mofada disappointed at Newcastle. He  has had a good break since and seems to be working better than ever at home. His form befiore Newcastle looked rock solid and a repeat of the Cheltenham win would see him go very close. Conditions should be fine for him and he is a massive price based on his first two novice wins.

Ga Law 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
15:15, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 4.4(Betfair Exc)

Having started his chasing career with three wins on the bounce as a 4yo, including the Grade 2 Rising Stars at Wincanton, Ga Law went on to be placed in the Grade 1 Henry VIII at Sandown and Grade 2 Pendil at Kempton. Aimed at that year's Aintree Festival, he picked up an injury and was then off for 600 days before making a promising comeback in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree last autumn. He followed that with an emphaticc success in the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham in November. Now up in distance and 8lb higher in the handicap it will require another big effort for him to win again but he is improving and we are very hopeful.

Suzy Smith
Animal 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
15:07, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 5.4(Betfair Exc)

Animal would have gone close last time but for missing the second-last. He is likely to put in another good effort and should at least finish in the frame all being well.

Botox Has 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
15:00, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 7.2(Betfair Exc)

Botox Has moved into a different category when winning the valuable 3m handicap hurdle at Haydock in November but could not maintain the improvement over 2m4f in a Graded hurdle here on New Year's Day. He is entitled to be tested against these star stayers back to 3m here, but he will do well on ratings to make the frame.

Park This One 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
14:40, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 24(Betfair Exc)

The nicely-bred Park This One (by Walk In The Park) arrived here after winning his English point-to-point and immediately finished 2nd before winning his bumper impressively at Exeter. He won well at Uttoxeter on his hurdles and season's debut then stepped up on that with a fine 4th in testing ground in a Grade 2 novice at Sandown. An easy winner under a penalty at Catterick soon after we believe he deserves another shot at Grade 2 company and over a suitable 3m he holds a definite each-way chance.

Simon Dow
Moosmee 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
13:43, Lingfield
DEC Odds: 80(Betfair Exc)

Moosmee has yet to win for us on the all-weather and has been difficult to train for a while. He returns in top form and with a good draw though with still a bit to prove. Not a complete surprise to see him involved at a big price if he gets away well.

Editeur Du Gite 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
13:20, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 16.5(Betfair Exc)

Editeur Du Gite was another to shock the market by the manner of his winning the Desert Orchid at Kempton, his task made easier by Edwardstone's departure. That horse and Energumene will not be easily beaten, but he runs the track well and deserves this shot as a big pot.

Trevada 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
12:55, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 6.4(Betfair Exc)

Trevada has been a bit of a work in progress for after winning his bumper he was very keen over hurdles which meant his jumping went to pot. He was a good 2nd last time at Exeter and the winner has gone on to win again. He was very relaxed that day and his jumping was good so that was a pleasing effort and something to build on.  A big horse, he'll go chasing next season but he likes decent ground and that's why he hasn't run for a while.

Legends Ryde 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
12:40, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 85(Betfair Exc)

Legends Ryde has a great jumping pedigree. She was going along nicely in her career until Covid intervened but after a frustrating season she came back to win three last winter and was 2nd in a valuable Graduation chase at Ascot. This term began with a good 3rd in another Graduation chase then she ran well back in a handicap when top-weight over an inadequate 2m4f last time at Cheltenham. This race over the Cross-Country course is over 3m6f, a trip which should suit but she is 9lb wrong at the weights. It's a big ask but she could outrun her odds if taking to the obstacles.

Wake Up Harry 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
12:33, Lingfield
DEC Odds: 4.3(Betfair Exc)

Wake Up Harry looked as if he was coming back to form last start and is a course and distance winner here. The wide draw is no help but he is tactically versatile and today's top rider knows him well so he should be thereabouts.

Tim Vaughan
Dalamoi 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
12:10, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 6.8(Betfair Exc)

Dalamoi is a lovely horse who looks extremely progressive. If he can get over his blip last time he ought to have a great each-way chance off his light weight.

Datsalrightgino 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
12:10, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

Datsalrightgino had been coming along nicely in his career, last season winning two novice hurdles including at Cheltenham. He ran well to be 2nd on chasing debut at Newton Abbot in a race that has worked out well and then won very impressively next time at Chepstow. Up 9lb for that he improved again to be 3rd at the Hennessy (Coral Gold Cup) meeting at Newbury but found 2m too quick against an improving type at Doncaster last time. This step up in trip promises to suit him and if the ground isn't too bad he should hold an each-way chance in a competitive race. 

Jupiter Du Gite 
Sat 28th Jan 2023
11:40, Cheltenham
DEC Odds: 3.8(Betfair Exc)

Jupiter Du Gite caught us completely unawares when winning at 33/1 on his debut at Newbury. Making all, he won by 15 lengths, beating some well fancied older rivals including our own market leader on the day. The French import has done well at home since and hopefully he can cope with this big step up in class and show he has Triumph Hurdle potential.

Scott Dixon
Poet 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
19:15, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 60(Betfair Exc)

It's fair to say that Poet has shown us virtually nothing since joining the stable early last year. A gloomy prospect is not improved by his poor draw. 

Visibility 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
18:45, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 11.5(Betfair Exc)

We've kept Visibility busy in recent months and he has generally run with credit. Versatile to trip he was third at a big price the other day over 8.5 furlongs and now reverts to 7f. Each-way hopes as ever and another win never looks too far away.

Daniel & Claire Kubler
Glam Puss 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
18:15, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 8.4(Betfair Exc)

Glam Puss has made a bright start to her career, 2nd on debut and following up with a win over a mile next time. She's going up another furlong and a half but she hit the line well last time. She does give a lot of weight to unexposed 3yo's between the wfa scale and the penalty for her novice win.

Donald Llewellyn 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
17:45, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 2.34(Betfair Exc)

Donald Llewellyn had been off for almost two years when he ran away with a 0-50 Classified at Kempton despite going into the race with a rating of 46. He's up to 56 in this handicap as a result but still looks the one to beat. Very optimistic he can follow up.

Harmonious 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
17:45, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 180(Betfair Exc)

Harmonious has found winning difficult as despite seven places he's now 0-25. Recent runs have been pretty dismal and the outside draw is no bargain either.

Vintage Rascal 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
17:15, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 38(Betfair Exc)

Vintage Rascal was bought at the sales out of my neighbour Tom Ward's yard. He won first time out as a 2yo for Tom but became disappointing. He's a tall, leggy gelding and when he recently made his debut over hurdles at Fontwell unfortunately it was an incredibly rough race. He was almost brought down at the first flight and thereafter the loose horse caused havoc. He lacks confidence anyway and while he schools well enough at home, I thought it best to give him a run on the flat to help him.

Pablo Del Pueblo 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
15:55, Lingfield
DEC Odds: 4.1(Betfair Exc)

Pablo Del Pueblo won readily dropped back to this distance on his return last week at Kempton and under this jockey. Has winning from here as well and is  likely to be thereabouts if things go smoothly for him. Not the most straight-forward but he has plenty of scope and his confidence will have been boosted from last time. Hopeful.

James Evans
Risk And Roll 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
15:35, Huntingdon
DEC Odds: 40(Betfair Exc)

Risk And Roll had been off for four months before winning this race impressively at 33/1 last year. He has been running okay this season and again comes here after a break, albeit a shorter one. Up 9lb now, he will have no problems with the ground and Tabitha is again in the saddle. Might outrun his odds.

Imphal 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
15:35, Huntingdon
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

Imphal was one of the stable stars last season, winning four times and he was consistent through a very busy campaign. He made a low-key return recently when probably a little undercooked and we expect a better performance now on his way to another rewarding season.

Soldier Of Destiny 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
15:15, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 14(Betfair Exc)

Soldier Of Destiny is a Presenting gelding from a nice female family. Beaten on debut in his Irish point by high-class Gentlemansgame, he then finished 2nd in a bumper. A lack-lustre start over hurdles prefaced his being a revelation over fences, winning novice handicaps at Ffos Las and Haydock. Fifth on his comeback in the Old Roan at Aintree, he fell on his next start, so we gave him a confidence-boosting run over hurdles when he finished 2nd. Back after a recent wind-op, blinkers on and over the minimum trip, we hope he can find some form but this does look competitive.

Henry Oliver
Gentle Frank 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
14:05, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 24(Betfair Exc)

Gentle Frank was 2nd in a point but has been unplaced in both runs over hurdles. He has shown promise though and we're hopeful he can challenge for a place here today.

Auriferous 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
13:25, Huntingdon
DEC Odds: 7.2(Betfair Exc)

We bought Auriferous, an 84-rated Golden Horn gelding out of the Andrew Balding stable in the autumn. He has shown promise schooling and as he stays two miles on the flat he should have no trouble getting the trip jumping. Hopeful on this debut.

Can't Beat History 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
13:05, Doncaster
DEC Odds: 100(Betfair Exc)

Can't Beat History showed promise when 2nd in a bumper in Ireland but so far has found it tough going in his two runs over hurdles for us. This looks another daunting task for him.

Brilliant Blue 
Fri 27th Jan 2023
12:45, Lingfield
DEC Odds: 17.5(Betfair Exc)

Brilliant Blue has been gradually coming down the handicap in step with his disappointing sequence of form. He should eventually come good but it's hard to suggest that might happen now as he's shown little sign of a revival recently.

David C Griffiths
Canzone 
Thu 26th Jan 2023
18:30, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 15.5(Betfair Exc)

Canzone put in a better run last time and will be fitter now. I do not think the drop to 5f should be a problem so hopeful for a run in the money.

Six O' Hearts 
Thu 26th Jan 2023
15:50, Southwell
DEC Odds: 20(Betfair Exc)

After a third four runs back at Wolverhampton, it appears Six O'Hearts has been going through the motions. Can do better and needs to!

Dark Shot 
Thu 26th Jan 2023
15:20, Southwell
DEC Odds: 46(Betfair Exc)

Dark Shot has been busy lately and there's no question he's better around here than at Wolverhampton where he has now run three times without causing a ripple. Always in with a chance here and the price he is has little bearing on how he'll run. Always a possibility.

Lady Valentine 
Thu 26th Jan 2023
13:25, Wetherby
DEC Odds: 36(Betfair Exc)

Lady Valentine is out of a half-sister to a Listed 7f winner and Group placed 5f winner, so this No Nay Never filly isn't bred to stay but some of her best flat form was over 1m6f on soft ground. She jumps well at home but was badly in need of the experience first time out, so I hope she can show improved form here.

Silastar

Lee Carter
Dynakite    WINNER! winner
Wed 25th Jan 2023
18:00, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 9(Betfair Exc)

Unfortunately Dynakite is still not showing us much. We're dropping him in class and might ride him in a different way. That said, the favourite looks very hard to beat.

Royal Razzmatazz 
Wed 25th Jan 2023
17:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 30(Betfair Exc)

Royal Razzmatazz got everything the wrong way round at Southwell last time where he ended up in front which is the last place I wanted to be. We will ride him slightly more conservatively this time and I would expect a much better run.

Git Maker    WINNER! winner
Wed 25th Jan 2023
15:45, Catterick
DEC Odds: 1.96(Betfair Exc)

By Saddler Maker, Git Maker is from a very high-class French female family. He was progressive in Irish points, winning on his final appearance in that sphere and then won three of his four starts in his first season for us. A promising 2nd on his chasing debut at Sandown on this season's return, he stepped up on that to be narrowly beaten at Kelso, then deservedly got his head in front over today's course and distance. Up only 1lb for that, he has a decent chance of winning again with a bit of luck today.

Starevitch 
Wed 25th Jan 2023
14:15, Catterick
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

Starevitch is a half-brother to French 2m1f chase winner Laskof and to the dam of top-class chaser Douvan. He won an Irish point-to-point on debut and was 3rd in a bumper at Huntingdon but picked up an injury soon after and missed all of last season. He was off for 638 days before finishing a creditable 5th on hurdling debut at Hereford just before Christmas and will have improved for that race. He is a 3m chaser in the making so the step up in trip will help. This looks competitive but he could have an each-way chance.

Trixster 
Wed 25th Jan 2023
13:45, Catterick
DEC Odds: 7(Betfair Exc)

With two second places in three runs this term, Trixster deserves a change of luck. He's well and everything is in his favour today. We're expecting a massive run.

Julia Feilden
Engrave    WINNER! winner
Wed 25th Jan 2023
13:00, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 3.55(Betfair Exc)

Everyone knows Engrave is a bit of a Chelmsford specialist but there aren't too many opportunities for her there at the moment so we're trying her at Newcastle today which I think should suit her. She is an uncomplicated ride and on a good rating now so we would be disappointed if she didn't finish in the first three.

Medrara 
Tue 24th Jan 2023
19:30, Southwell
DEC Odds: 34(Betfair Exc)

Medrara has been really disappointing since joining my yard. I have no idea what his perfect distance is so we are stepping him right up in trip today. He doesn't look useless at home and should be better than his handicap mark but he has a lot to prove right now.

Harbour Vision 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
19:00, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

Harbour Vision had a busy late summer/early autumn and then after a break, did very well leading up to Christmas with a couple of wins around here. He wasn't beaten far last time off his raised mark and now after a four-week absence, can be fresh enough to figure here if he can get away on terms.

Ornate 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
17:10, Southwell
DEC Odds: 15.5(Betfair Exc)

It's taken a while but Ornate is at last in great physical condition. He ran a blinder when 3rd at 25/1 last time; he has a nice draw and with his good CD form, he has to hold a great chance.

Canzone 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
16:40, Southwell
DEC Odds: 46(Betfair Exc)

Canzone ran better again last time and the drop today to 5f is not a problem. He is a lot fitter now and we think he's ready to run a cracker. Nice chance at a massive price.

Shantou Sunset 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
16:30, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 80(Betfair Exc)

Shantou Sunset ran a lovely race when 4th at Ascot and was going well until pulled up sharply on this track last time. She is happy on any conditions, and particularly loves heavy ground but she needs to bounce back.

Coast 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
16:20, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 38(Betfair Exc)

Coast is not always the most consistent, but she made all to win well over 6f here two runs back. Disappointing last time at Southwell, even though now 5lb higher than for her victory, if she can get away alertly she should not be far behind in this company at the fiinish.

Bobmahley    WINNER! winner
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
16:00, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 7.6(Betfair Exc)

Bobmahley is a lovely consistent staying chaser who ought to relish these conditions. I think he has a cracking chance and like his stable companion, has each-way chances. Maybe a 1-2?

Airtothethrone 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
16:00, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 8.4(Betfair Exc)

We run two in this handicap chase. Airtothethrone is a lovely staying chaser who looks very progressive. The drop back in trip last time played against him but conditions should suit him today. Great each-way chance.

Perseverants 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
15:40, Southwell
DEC Odds: 190(Betfair Exc)

Perseverants joins Conservative in this mile handicap, returning after three months off the track. He was a decent performer in France but made little impact from his two runs for us last year. He should be better adjusted to his new life now and we're looking for an improved performance here.

Conservative 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
15:40, Southwell
DEC Odds: 32(Betfair Exc)

Conservative is owned by the Coral Racing Club and he won once and placed five times in eight races for the Meades. He's been off for a while and starts from a tough-looking mark, but we like what we see and hopefully he can outrun his odds.

Thor De Cerisy 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
15:00, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 3.35(Betfair Exc)

Thor De Cerisy won well around here over hurdles last time in heavy ground. He did have good form in his one chase run before that. A repeat of either performance would see him go close here, but he will need soft/heavy ground as those conditions are vital for him.

Keaden Hill 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
14:30, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 170(Betfair Exc)

Keaden Hill has a nice pedigree and he did well to win his last two points. He needs to step up a good deal on his Rules debut to have a chance of going close to winning this.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
14:20, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 9.4(Betfair Exc)

Non-runner - meeting abandoned

Kap Chidley 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
14:00, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 17(Betfair Exc)

Kap Chidley is a lovely young horse who ought to improve for the step up in trip and soft ground. This is a very competitive event but I'm hoping he will be bang there today. The Twiston-Davies horse is the one to beat.

Wake Up Harry 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
13:50, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 4.8(Betfair Exc)

Non-runner - meeting abandoned

Nordy Lordy 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
13:30, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 570(Betfair Exc)

Nordy Lordy has been struggling to find his form. I think he is best watched today and we will expect more from him when handicapping.

State Of Honor 
Mon 23rd Jan 2023
13:30, Ffos Las
DEC Odds: 150(Betfair Exc)

State Of Honor joins Nordy Lordy is this novice hurdle. He's in a similar stage to his career, is best watched and again will be more interesting when handicapping.

Moosmee

DEC Odds: 36(Betfair Exc)

Non-runner  - meeting abandoned

Teruntum Star 
Sun 22nd Jan 2023
15:15, Newcastle
DEC Odds: 65(Betfair Exc)

Teruntum Star made an instant impression upon joining the stable in late summer, winning consecutive turf races at Doncaster and Pontefract. His subsequent running on AW has been very ordinary, but we know on natural ability there's no way he should be a 33/1 shot in this class - but he is!

Kitten's Dream    WINNER! winner
Sun 22nd Jan 2023
13:15, Newcastle

Kitten's Dream was running some good races in defeat earlier in the winter often giving his rivals a lengthy start but retrieving most of the ground and appearing an unlucky loser twice in succession. In his last run, just over two weeks ago, over this CD, he finished behind three of today's opponents. He has the ability to turn it around, but it would need a fair bit of improvement for him to do so.

Kodi Gold 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
18:30, Wolverhampton

Another two-pronged attack. Kodi Bear ran only once for us last year, back in March when he was 5th over this CD behind Rebel Redemption, who coincidentally re-opposes here. The weight difference is similar, so with the time off to consider too, it is difficult to see him turning that result around.

Rebel Redemption 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
18:30, Wolverhampton

Rebel Redemption has that March win here on his honour board and also repeated over CD in August. Otherwise he has been running moderately and needs to buck his ideas up.

Shaw Park    WINNER! winner
Sat 21st Jan 2023
17:30, Wolverhampton

Shaw Park is a 4yo gelded son of Aclaim making his debut against a field of 3yo's. He concedes a minimum of 16lb and a maximum of 23lb and if he were to figure, we'd probably have a decent performer on our hands. We can dream!

Dark Shot 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
17:00, Wolverhampton

Dark Shot ran his best race after a few duds when fifth at Southwell the other day. He's yet to do anything here from limited opportunities, but with him it's wise to expect the unexpected.

Daphne May 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
17:00, Wolverhampton

Daphne May is gradually coming down the handicap. It is probably unfair to judge her on her last run going up to 7f as she was slowly away and never got involved. Today will tell us if this is her trip or whether she has to go further again.

Our other runner in this is Poet, whose form for us can be summed up in a single word - dreadful! It would take a major internal rehabilitation for him to get near the principals here.

Danah Star 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
15:45, Southwell

Danah Star sometimes misses the break as was the case when he was 4th, not beaten far, over this 6f two runs back. He has plenty of form lines that suggest he should go close, but sometimes too his tendency to race freely counts against him. Place chances if he does it right.

Tom Tulliver 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
15:45, Southwell

Tom Tulliver had a break of four months before his last race around Wolverhampton. He had been showing glimpses of better form in the late summer but seems to be a little off that at the moment and is a few pounds wrong with some of these in this Classified stakes.

Tequilamockingbird 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
14:47, Lingfield

Tequilamockingbird loves Lingfield and she would have finished closer to the favourite last time there had they gone a decent gallop. She needs to take another step forward but she's very reliable and I'm sure she'll run another big race.

Purple Ribbon    WINNER! winner
Sat 21st Jan 2023
14:47, Lingfield

Purple Ribbon is a very good filly but she will need to be, carrying top-weight in a decent handicap. She is in cracking form at home and the drop back to ten furlongs shouldn't be a problem.

Justcallmepete    WINNER! winner
Sat 21st Jan 2023
14:35, Southwell

Justcallmepete has exceeded our expectations since we equipped him with blinkers and his win over this CD on Sunday to complete the hat-trick suggests he's still getting better. He was on terms much earlier in that race, having got up very late the previous twice and in a five-runner field that will be a major help.

Gorak    WINNER! winner
Sat 21st Jan 2023
13:25, Southwell

Gorak was disappointing at Wolverhampton the other day when a well-backed favourite but he had been showing plenty of speed at home and I did tell the owners the trip was a concern. He travelled well but found little off the bridle and I think the drop back in trip will suit. He is by a sprinter so there is speed in the pedigree and the first-time cheek-pieces should sharpen him up too.

Theotherside 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
13:25, Southwell

Theotherside didn't run too badly when 4th of 6 on Wednesday. Just the same, he will need to find a bit more to be competitive in this tight handicap.

Recuerdame 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
13:02, Lingfield

Recuerdame was successful in a similar race last weekend and makes a quick reappearence. He's a multiple all-weather winner who has never been better and should be thereabouts again if the race works out for him. Generally slowly away these days but finishes off strongly and his rider knows him well.

Heer's Sadie 
Sat 21st Jan 2023
13:02, Lingfield

Heer's Sadie has been very frustrating. She gallops better than anything at home and has far more ability than her rating would suggest. Sam has won on her before, so we are putting on cheek-pieces for the first time and will also try different tactics on her. 

Lucky Beggar 
Fri 20th Jan 2023
18:45, Newcastle

Lucky Beggar is in great condition and I'm hopeful the remarkable 13-year-old can make an impression here in his 131st career race. So far he hasn't won on AW but with nine turf wins, who's to say he won't do so one day?

Endofastorm 
Fri 20th Jan 2023
16:15, Newcastle

Endofastorm put up a very good performance last time when winning here at 125/1. She won't be anything like that price today but is in good form at home and I'm very hopeful of a repeat.

Gerrots 
Fri 20th Jan 2023
13:20, Southwell

Gerrots has had a few issues but seems to be going the right way at home. Stepping back up in trip should suit. This is something of a rebuilding exercise today and he is probably not a betting proposition.

Big Jimbo    WINNER! winner
Thu 19th Jan 2023
20:30, Kempton Park

We won one of these 0-50 Classifieds around here on Tuesday with Donald Llewellyn, a 20/1 shot after two years off the track. Big Jimbo is also a 6yo and like Donald has been off for a long time, in his case 21 months. Maybe it's asking lightning to strike twice but he has worked with that winner and the opposition looks modest albeit the favourite won the other day and is unexposed.

Mintana 
Thu 19th Jan 2023
16:15, Wolverhampton

Mintana won well at Lingfied last week in a four-runner 3yo Classified race. She now moves back into handicaps against her elders but I'm hopeful she can put in a solid performance.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Thu 19th Jan 2023
15:05, Wolverhampton

Kentucky Kingdom won around here in February but was then off the track until November. He has gradually been returning to form and last time at Lingfield would have been much nearer with a clear run. Looks about ready to get back in the winner's enclosure.

Visibility    WINNER! winner
Thu 19th Jan 2023
15:05, Wolverhampton

Visibility had a couple of wins around here late last year, including over CD early last month. Couldn't follow up with a penalty a few days later and remains higher than when winning, but does seem a massive price and could pinch a place.

Theotherside 
Wed 18th Jan 2023
18:45, Southwell

Theotherside hasn't been too competitive lately but if she could find her best form, she is handicapped to make an impact.

Victory House 
Wed 18th Jan 2023
17:45, Southwell

Victory House has been a bit frustrating to date but I should never have run him over ten furlongs last time out when he clearly didn't stay at Wolverhampton the time before. The drop back to a mile should suit and he worked well last week. I also think he will like the small field. He should go well.

Lady Ursula 
Tue 17th Jan 2023
18:00, Southwell

Lady Ursula was disappointing last time out and has a few questions to answer. She is not short of speed so the drop to 5f looks interesting at a track where she has run well in the past.

Bungle Bay 
Tue 17th Jan 2023
15:50, Kempton Park

Bungle Boy seems to be getting the hang of things now and won nicely last time. Typically, this is another competitive handicap but today's partner Imogen, who rides him every day at home and knows him well, is very optimistic.

Donald Llewellyn    WINNER! winner
Tue 17th Jan 2023
14:40, Kempton Park

Donald Llewellyn's owner-breeder Chris Stedman has been incredibly patient with him, even waiting almost exactly two years for him to run again since early in his 4yo days. He returns in a race that ought to be within his range judged on what he shows at home, but the long time off is a negative.

Ornate    WINNER! winner
Tue 17th Jan 2023
12:40, Kempton Park

Ornate remains in the best of  health at home. He has a good draw and the track will suit him. As ever he's an outsider in the betting but I'm confident of a good result.

Pablo Del Pueblo    WINNER! winner
Tue 17th Jan 2023
12:40, Kempton Park

Pablo Del Pueblo returns from a break and seems in good form. He can be excitable and is not the most reliable but has loads of speed and is well drawn here so no surprise to see him make a bold bid from the front.

Cilaos Glace 
Mon 16th Jan 2023
16:10, Hereford

This is the Last Chance Saloon for Cilaos Glace. He has completely lost his way on the racecourse but annoyingly he has been flying at home so he still retains plenty of ability. I wouldn't put anyone off from having a pound each way as he could easily make the frame if he got it in his head to try, but we have to accept that he will probably be retired after today and have a new career as an ROR horse. 

Obsessedwithyou 
Mon 16th Jan 2023
14:10, Hereford

Obsessedwithyou is a daughter of a little known stallion Bathyrhon from a winning Sleeping Car mare. She is full-sister to Calipsa who won a hurdle race on racecourse debut in France by ten lengths. Obsessedwithyou was in pre-training last season then fairly bolted up first time in one of these Junior NH development races at Wetherby before making the running in a Listed juvenile fillies' contest at Aintree, keeping on quite well to be fourth once headed. Back down in class but carrying a 7lb penalty in soft ground won't be easy, but she is a talented filly who will give it her all.

Justcallmepete    WINNER! winner
Sun 15th Jan 2023
15:20, Southwell

It's a tight competitive handicap but after wins in his last two, Justcallmepete should have a leading chance. He was quite impressive over course and distance two weeks ago.

Closeness 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
17:30, Chelmsford

Closeness has her first start for us. She showed minor promise for previous connections but subsequently lost her way. She's had a long break so will come forward from this run. She is not well drawn. That said, if she translates what she she shows at home she is up to winning at this sort of level in due course.

Privatory 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
15:50, Kempton Park

Privatory lost his form after a first-time win for the stable at Sandown last March. He has been taken out of a couple of races lately on the day and hopefully conditions will be suitable today. He needs to find his good form from somewhere and this would be a good place to start.

Zhiguli 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
15:15, Kempton Park

Zhiguli did well last season winning twice but unfortunately bled from the nose during his comeback run at Ascot in November and had to be pulled up. He's had almost two months to recover and all we hope today is that he can run well and come home safe and sound.

Fifty Ball 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
14:40, Kempton Park

We run two last-time winners in the Lanzarote and the class of this year's race can be gauged as neither of our runners is shorter than 20/1. Fifty Ball last appeared when winning a handicap hurdle at Ascot in March. This is a tough starting point but hopefully he can run well and offer promise for the rest of the season.

Up For Parol    WINNER! winner
Sat 14th Jan 2023
14:40, Kempton Park

Up For Patrol has a nice jumps pedigree and won an Irish point-to-point before arriving with us upon which he won a couple of novice hurdles. Last season he won a decent handicap hurdle off 127 and was unlucky in last year's Lanzarote at Kempton, beaten eight lengths in sixth staying on late off a mark 4lb higher than today's after getting too far behind. He could run well again, despite this being his first run of the season.

Mark of Gold 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
14:40, Kempton Park

Mark of Gold has been going well this season winning two out of three, but he is paying the penalty for his latest wide-margin win at Lingfield, going up 7lb. A son of Golden Horn, we're moving him up in trip and he might enjoy it. Tough task but going the right way.

Givega 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
14:25, Warwick

Givega has enjoyed two exhibition rounds at Lingfield and Fontwell following an Irish point win for Colin Bowe. We can only assume he will be even more formidable over this longer trip and while facing stronger rivals, we do not believe he has reached his ceiling yet and go there with high hopes.

Arpina 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
14:20, Lingfield

Arpina has been mainly very consistent without winning. She has run well at the track and we hope going up in distance will bring out a bit more improvement. If she gets the trip she will have an each-way chance again.

Haddex Des Obeaux    WINNER! winner
Sat 14th Jan 2023
13:15, Warwick

Although Haddex Des Obeaux is a novice in all regards, he looked like a hardened professional the way he jumped round the testing Doncaster chase track two weeks ago. Up 6lb for that good win we have to be hopeful he can dominate these rivals just as he did those on Town Moor.

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner
Sat 14th Jan 2023
12:35, Lingfield

Recuerdame had a busy winter and has generally run well on all starts. He was a winner here a few runs back and always finds his races, just needs a good gallop. The wide draw makes little difference to him with his run style and he is likely to be staying on strongly so cannot be discounted back at this slightly lower level.

Dutugamunu 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
12:35, Lingfield

Dutugamunu was pushed so wide on the home bend last time he was taken almost to the outside rail. To finish less than five lengths off the winner was highly creditable and today from a good draw and down in grade, he has a good each-way shout.

Come On Tier 
Sat 14th Jan 2023
12:35, Lingfield

Come On Tier has been off the track for just over two years and is best watched today.

Canzone 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
18:15, Newcastle

Canzone has had two quick runs lately but I still expect him to improve from last time as he had been off a long time before that. He doesn't have the greatest draw but at the price I'd recommend each-way support.

Shady Daisy 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
15:50, Sedgefield

Shady Daisy is a nicely-bred young mare who finished 3rd on her racecourse debut at Newton Abbot in May, twice finding considerable trouble and unable to recover in time to get her head  in front. A month later at Stratford she had every chance at the two furlong pole but then ducked the wrong side of a marker. She is a nice mare who deserves to win a bumper.

Miss Elsa 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
15:40, Lingfield

Miss Elsa didn't like Kempton so you can put a line through that. She is much happier around here and has genuine place claims at this level.

Creationist 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
15:10, Lingfield

Creationist was once rated much higher but has been in a bit of a slump since joining the stable. He resumes after almost a year off on a much reduced mark and while he will come on for the run, I give him a small each-way chance.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
15:10, Lingfield

Kentucky Kingdom is a solid performer who should be suited by the increase in trip today. Each-way chances.

Perseus Way    WINNER! winner
Fri 13th Jan 2023
15:00, Huntingdon

We've been delighted with the progress of Perseus Way, a winner of a juvenile hurdle at Leicester between places in two Grade 2 contests. His close 3rd in the Finale Hurdle at Chestow behind Irish-trained Comfort Zone reads very well in this company.

Inneston 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
14:30, Huntingdon

Non-runner

Let It Shine 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
14:30, Huntingdon

Let It Shine has shown hints of promise in bumpers/ novice hurdles but this looks a pretty deep contest. The ground will probably be soft enough for him too.

Superstylin 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
14:30, Huntingdon

Although Superstylin won his Irish point, he has been much too free so far over hurdles. We will be looking for him to be more measured today and the drop in trip will help with that. Desperate ground last time (meeting abandoned soon afterwards) so best putting a line through that. Ultimately a chaser and will likely need a handicap mark. He does work nicely but really hoping just for a better run than anything else.

Mintana    WINNER! winner
Fri 13th Jan 2023
13:40, Lingfield

Mintana has yet to get off the mark but shows good speed at home. The 5f trip should suit her well and she has every chance of gaining those winning brackets in a tight four-horse affair.

Police Academy 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
13:30, Huntingdon

Police aAademy ran okay on her debut  for the stable when just touched off for second at Leicester. The two mares that finished ahead of her are quite smart so that was no disgrace but I would have been happier if her jumping had been as slick as it is at home. I'm dispensing with the hood for the race but will utilise the red hood to keep her calm beforehand. Good each-way chance.

Symphorine    WINNER! winner
Fri 13th Jan 2023
13:30, Huntingdon

Symphorine was placed 2nd in her first start in  a bumper at Fontwell in May but she predictably found Queens Gamble much too tough in a Listed mares' bumper at Cheltenham in November. This hurdles debut also looks demanding with the favourite appearing in a different league but we hope she can show some promise for the future.

Sinurita 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
13:30, Huntingdon

Sinurita was a well-beaten 3rd in the one Irish point she contested and ran far too free after her long layoff last time. She will need to show a great deal of improvement to get involved today and while I expect some progress from that run, it is unlikely to be enough for her to feature here.

Hector Jaguen 
Fri 13th Jan 2023
13:00, Huntingdon

Hector Jaguen has run behind two of our younger stable stars in his last two starts, pulling up behind Authorised Speed at Lingfield and then finishing fourth to Givega at Fontwell. He was a 66/1 chance that day and ran creditably. Now handicapping off what looks a fair mark, he could have place chances.

Legends Ryde 
Thu 12th Jan 2023
14:50, Catterick

Legends Ryde is a beautifully-bred mare and after doing well, earning black type with a 2nd in a Listed bumper she initially struggled over hurdles. She flourished though in novice chases last season, winning three GBB races and was 2nd in a valuable Graduation chase at Ascot. She ran 3rd in another of that category on her comeback run this term and filled the same position in a Listed chase next time. Back in handicap company she was 3rd off top-weight over 2m4f at Cheltenham, a trip that was a bit short for her. This much longer test of the North Yorkshire Grand National is an unknown but she looks like she might appreciate it and if she does, she has a very decent chance.

Via Serendipity 
Thu 12th Jan 2023
13:50, Newcastle

Via Serendipity is in cracking form and comes into this race on the back of three very unlucky efforts. At his best he can go close today but he has never run at Newcastle and a lot of his best efforts have been on tighter turning tracks. That said, this place should suit his run style.

Stintino Sunset 
Wed 11th Jan 2023
18:00, Kempton Park

Stintino Sunset has had a break since running well on heavy ground at Leicester. She has been working well at home and will run well fresh. Hopefully she will be thereabouts in a weak-looking race.

Pirate King 
Wed 11th Jan 2023
14:15, Lingfield

Pirate King heads back to his beloved Lingfield and seems in good order. They went very slowly at Wolverhampton last time out which didn't suit him one bit. Rob Hornby should suit him well and he is off a competitive mark. Hopeful.

Dirham Emirati 
Wed 11th Jan 2023
14:15, Lingfield

After seeming to have lost his confidence over jumps we are retuning Dirham Emirati to the level. He won a 1m4f race at Newcastle early in his 3yo season and while he never really built on it, he was quite lightly-raced. After a bright start when second on debut over hurdles on joining us, he fell next time and his two runs this season have been disappointing. Let's hope a run round Lingfield's AW track will lighten his mood.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Wed 11th Jan 2023
13:15, Lingfield

Hul Ah Bah Loo is still a maiden but has looked as if his turn is around the corner in recent starts. Probably better suited by 7f than the mile over which he was beaten into fourth by less than a length last time. He seems at the top of his game so entitled to enter calculations at this level and looks  sure to be thereabouts.

Masqool 
Wed 11th Jan 2023
12:45, Lingfield

Masqool had a great year in 2022. He is an ever reliable sort who will give it a good go even from the outside draw,

Arctician    WINNER! winner
Wed 11th Jan 2023
12:45, Lingfield

Artician was a shade disappointing here last time over slightly shorter but he did not get the best run round from a wide draw. He has plenty of ability and has slipped down the handicap so he cannot be dismissed. It would be no surprise to see him staying on well.

Dark Shot 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
20:30, Southwell

Unpredictable Dark Shot picked up a race over CD in October but has been very disappointing since. He is always liable to pop up when least expected but he has it all to do from his wide draw now.

Sociologist 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
20:00, Southwell

Sociologist has been making the running in recent starts over varying distances, not quite getting home. His mark is gradually dropping and that gives him a small each-way shout in a competitive affair.

Six O' Hearts 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
17:30, Southwell

Six O' Hearts was never in the argument over the stiff Newcastle 6f last week but his effort three runs back over 5f around Wolverhampton gives him a glimmer in this ordinary contest. Place chances.

Lucky Beggar 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
17:30, Southwell

Lucky Beggar is in good form and the race looks okay for him. They should go fast which will help him but on the negative side he still hasn't won on all-weather.

Maclaine 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
15:00, Doncaster

Maclaine moves up into handicap company after winning his novice hurdle last time at Fontwell. Whilst all out that day there was plenty against him, particularly the sharp track and inadequate distance. He'd been very weak until that point but is starting to mature and it will not be until he goes chasing next season that we'll see the finished article. Hopeful of a good run on a track that will suit him much better.

Ballaquane 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
14:25, Doncaster

Ballaquane won his first race over fences at Fontwell recently when to his credit over that trappy course he avoided making any sort of mistake, winning going away. Now he goes for a novice handicap chase up 3lb and over half a mile further which should suit him. It's a tougher test, but he should be suited by it.

Tapley 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
13:15, Doncaster

Tapley ran well last time and as two or three of these look hard to beat, he is probably going for minor honours at the most again. He is best on good ground so we wouldn't want too much rain beforehand.

Dj Pete 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
12:45, Doncaster

Dj Pete has been placed in both his bumpers to date, looking a real galloper but also still a bit of a baby. He has done plenty of schooling and while jumping very big and carefully initially, he has become much slicker but could still be quite green early on.  He's a very tall horse who does show ability, but he won't have a hard campaign this winter.

Can't Beat History 
Tue 10th Jan 2023
12:45, Doncaster

Can't Beat History was placed in an Irish bumper but was well beaten on hurdles and stable debut at Market Rasen. This looks a very tough task on second start.

Gorak 
Mon 9th Jan 2023
20:30, Wolverhampton

Gorak is new to the yard so we are still trying to find out about him. His work has been good at home and I am happy he can be competitive off his current mark. My only question is the trip as I have a feeling I will be bringing him back in distance in time. That said, Wolverhampton is the sharpest track in the country and he has a cracking draw so he should get home today.

Poet 
Mon 9th Jan 2023
17:30, Wolverhampton

Apart from one run around here in October, Poet has been extremely disappointing since joining the stable. it is hard to fancy him to make a serious challenge in his present form.

Fortune Cookie 
Mon 9th Jan 2023
15:35, Taunton

The policy of UK handicappers adding a mandatory 10lb to Irish ratings makes this opening 95 mark of Fortune Cookie pretty tough. A mistake at the 6th flight at Hereford on stable debut stopped her in her tracks and she was pulled up soon after. Hopefully, a clear round today in this mares' handicap hurdle will give us a better idea of how she might progress from now on.

Robin's Dream 
Mon 9th Jan 2023
13:25, Taunton

Robin's Dream made it to the course only once last season, at Huntingdon in May 2021 when he made all the running and winning his maiden hurdle narrowly as an odds-on chance. He's been off for 588 days and has quite a tough initial mark to go novice handicap chasing although he is bred for the job. He may just be better for this first run back anyway.

Present Value 
Sun 8th Jan 2023
15:40, Chepstow

Present Value is by Gold Well out of a Presenting dam and is half-brother to World Hurdle winner Paisley Park. He made a winning debut for us when taking this race last year off today's mark. He didn't quite repeat that form in three subsequent outings and under-performed on seasonal debut as well. He's not the easiest to predict, but hopefully the blinkers could help spark a revival.

Royal Razzmatazz 
Sun 8th Jan 2023
14:30, Southwell

Royal Razzmatazz gave himself no chance to win on debut over this CD when falling out of the stalls. He did remarkably well to finish where he did and ran a cracker in sixth. He is well drawn today and can put that experience to good use and run a better race.

Chorlton Lane 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
19:00, Kempton Park

Chorlton Lane could not have been more impressive om debut confirming our opinion he is a smart horse. He beat absolutely nothing that day but couldn't have done it any more easily. Today is a tougher test as the Hughes horse is no slouch but we are hopeful our horse will be too good.

Plymouth Rock 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
18:00, Kempton Park

As I've said before I'm not sure Plymouth Rock is an all-weather horse. He hates Lingfield but I'll give him one more go at Kempton. He'll make the running and if that doesn't work out, then we'll wait for Brighton in the spring. His last form there would give him a very good chance in this 0-50 Classified. 

Imphal 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
15:35, Sandown

Imphal had a wonderful and busy season in 2021-2 with four wins and the other six of his ten runs all in the frame. Considering that success, to have gone up 17lb was more than fair. If he does need this first run it would be understandable but he should not be long in getting back into his stride this winter.

Hardy Du Seuil    WINNER! winner
Sat 7th Jan 2023
15:35, Sandown

Hardy Du Seuil was 2nd in two 3yo bumpers in France before bolting up over hurdles at Fontainebleau. We sent him novice chasing last season to utilise his wfa advantage and he won twice and was 2nd in a Grade 2. As his jumping of fences wasn't always assured, though, we thought he would appreciate going back over hurdles where he runs off a lower mark. The ground was too quick for him in the Welsh Champion Hurdle but he ran well to be 3rd last time over 2m4f at Wetherby. He should be suited to dropping back to 2m here on deep ground and he's not without a chance in a competitive race.

In The Air 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
15:35, Sandown

Non-runner

Roman Tempest 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
15:30, Lingfield

Roman Tempest has been well beaten in maidens so looks well handicapped and has come on for his handicap debut. Yet to prove he stays this far but should do so on pedigree and could go well at a big price.

Engrave 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
14:55, Lingfield

Engrave is now very well handicapped but all her best form is at Chelmsford. Unfortunately there are no races for her there at present. This is her first try on the Lingfield AW but she has performed well on the turf track there. If she handles the Polytrack she will have a good each-way chance.

Isayalittleprayer 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
14:40, Wincanton

Isayalittleprayer is in the process of rehabilitation after almost two years off the track before her recent comeback at Sandown when she was pulled up. She had some okay form in the past and hopefully she will be a little further along the road today.

Authorised Speed 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
14:25, Sandown

I said to the press I thought this is a very high-class and deep Tolworth Hurdle. Authorised Speed has done everything asked of him in his first two hurdles, more than living up to the promise of his Festival Bumper 5th. His win around here is a big advantage as they will have to come up that hill and he has! 

Colonel Harry 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
14:25, Sandown

Colonel Harry is by Shirocco, sire of Annie Power and Gold Cup winner Minella Rocco, from a wonderful female jumping family. He fell with the race at his mercy on point-to-point debut but made amends winning his next start in a very fast time. Turning to hurdles on joining us he was 2nd on debut over 2m4f on good going but bolted up on soft ground over this course and distance in November. This race has always been the target and he has blossomed since. He's a big price and needs to step up considerably in this strong Grade 1, but I thick he can.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
13:30, Wincanton

Kiltealy Briggs is out of a half-sister to Grand National winner Ballabriggs. Having been 2nd on debut in  a bumper, he won two novice hurdles and was 3rd in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham. Then when sent novice chasing, he excelled again, winning two and placing in two Graded chases. He improved even on those efforts when returning this term, picking up a 50k race (27k to the winner) at Market Rasen and then was not disgraced up 3lb when 4th at Aintree.  This is a race with a bit less depth and he should go well.

Sopran Thor 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
13:15, Sandown

Sopran Thor was a winner first time out last season and although he didn't manage to win again, he was generally consistent. He finished with 2nd places in two small field chases in April and resumes on a slightly reduced mark. He can go well first time and this is his trip.

High Up In The Air 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
13:15, Sandown

High Up In The Air won a race in February 2021 but has been very disappointing since resuming this winter. He needs to find that old form from somewhere but is clearly the less likely of our two in this.

Daphne May 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
13:10, Lingfield

Daphne May has had a couple of runs over 6f here since being cheaply bought last backend. Up a furlong and nicely drawn, she has come down a little in the handicap but may need more help before we could expect her to start winning races.

Wake Up Harry 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
13:10, Lingfield

Wake Up Harry has not shown much since returning from a lengthy absence. He is sliding down the handicap and needs to get his confidence back but retains plenty of ability. 

Poncho 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
12:55, Wincanton

Poncho is by Derby winner, Motivator, sire of many good jumpers since going to stand in France. He has been placed in both runs in bumpers and we hope he can be competitive at this level in this hurdles debut.

Key Factor 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
12:55, Wincanton

Key Factor was moderate in points and has yet to show much in his two runs over hurdles. He's one for later on.

Villainess 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
12:13, Newcastle

Villainess is out of a wonderfully-bred Listed-winning dam who has produced four winners from four runners in four bumpers. Let's hope she can follow in her siblings' footsteps by winning and hopefully picking up black type for her owner-breeder. She was a promising 2nd on her racecourse debut at Newbury in November and will have improved off the back of that. This looks the right race for her next start but there are some interesting sorts in opposition.

Bo Zenith 
Sat 7th Jan 2023
12:05, Sandown

Bo Zenith was bought last summer after winning his only previous race in a quite valuable juvenile conest at Auteuil. Bo Zenith has been shaping well and while he has to carry a penalty it's a small field and he is clearly the one to beat.

Rose King 
Fri 6th Jan 2023
19:45, Southwell

Non-runner

Danah Star 
Fri 6th Jan 2023
19:15, Southwell

Danah Star has been improving steadily while her mark has been going in the other direction. After her good 4th here the other day, she could be ready to gain that elusive first win.

Tom Tulliver

Striking Out    WINNER! winner
Fri 6th Jan 2023
14:00, Ludlow

Striking Out won a hurdle last season and returns for his chase debut after a seven-month break. He is working well and is in good nick so needs to make a start. I can't see anything beating the Venetia Williams horse, though, who gets in on 114 yet has beaten horses rated far higher in France.

Gentle Frank 
Fri 6th Jan 2023
13:30, Ludlow

Gentle Frank had form in point-to-points and ran well on hurdles debut at Uttoxeter in November. The JP/Nicky Henderson looks a fine prospect and Frank is probably best watched until he gets a handicap mark. 

Spirit D'Aunou    WINNER! winner
Fri 6th Jan 2023
13:00, Ludlow

After a promising first run when 2nd in one of these NH Juvenile contests at Kempton, Spirit D'Aunou was not troubled to land the odds in a three-runner edition of the same series at Huntingdon. The penalty doesn't make it easy but he appears to have the best form and any newcomer will need to have plenty of ability to challenge him.

Arpina 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
20:00, Chelmsford

Arpina was very consistent last year and was unlucky not to have won a race. We have given her a break and her work has been good enough to suggest she can win this sort of race. Dylan Hogan gets on well with her so we hope she has a good each-way chance again.

Zany Idea 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
18:00, Chelmsford

Zany Idea surprised us with the speed she showed on her first run. She just got tired and looked as though she didn't get the trip. We have dropped her to 6f here and hope she has learnt plenty from that first run.

Roger Pol 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
16:00, Ffos Las

Roger Pol is by prolific Grade 1 producing sire Shantou out of a Monsun mare who won on both the flat and over jumps. Among several smart siblings, he is half-brother to seven-time winner Adrrastos which we used to train. Roger Pol was 2nd, beaten narrowly in his only Irish point but won impressively on bumper debut for us  in a warm race at Worcester before not handling the undulations of Cheltenham last time out. Back in calmer waters here and on a more suitable track, he should run well despite carrying his penalty.

My Dream 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
16:00, Ffos Las

My Dream, who makes her debut in this bumper, is a progressive type. Judged on pedigree she is likely to improve once we send her over hurdles.

Ornate 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
15:45, Wolverhampton

Ornate has been running consistently of late and remains in very good condition despite his busy spell. He hasn't a great draw but in an eight-horse race he represents an excellent each-way shout,

Seaston Spirit 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
15:30, Ffos Las

Seaston Spirit became frustrating last season having had a good campaign previously. We tried various things including hunting to perk him up but while he was always okay at home he remained less enthusiastic on the racecourse. This autumn he had a thorough overhaul and he we found he was suffering from ulcers but hand on heart I don't know if that made any difference. Keith is now in the Last Chance Saloon and if he doesn't show any vigour in the next two races he will be retired. He has always been happy in his work and schooling at home so it's impossible to know  if last season was a blip. He has done plenty of work, stays and loves heavy ground but it will be tough for all runners today.

Spitfire Girl 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
15:00, Ffos Las

Spitfire Girl is by Walk In The Park from a well-connected black-type winning mare. She was 2nd in three bumpers and even then looked like she had a future. It took her a few runs to get the hang of hurdling but that meant she started off on a nice mark and was just touched off in her first handicap by a short-head with a long gap back to the third horse. Up 6lb for that today, she is fresh and well and deserves to go one better here.

Noplacetobe 
Thu 5th Jan 2023
15:00, Ffos Las

Noplacetobe stayed on well to be fourth at Uttoxeter and is up against several of those she met there. She handles soft ground but is untried on heavy although she should handle it. This step up in trip is a plus for her and the galloping track should be fine.

Thor De Cerisy    WINNER! winner
Thu 5th Jan 2023
14:30, Ffos Las

Thor De Cerisy had been running in France but did well first go back over here and has won a hurdle on this track earlier in his career too. He loves heavy ground and the worse the going, the better for him. This looks a race he ought to be competitive in, but he wouldn't appear to have much in hand of the handicapper.

Far Horizon 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
19:30, Kempton Park

Far Horizon ran well last time at Chelmsford in a race that didn't suit him as he got blocked when coming to make his challenge before staying on again late. Kempton should suit him better and he comes here in good form. Should go close.

Headley George 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
17:30, Kempton Park

Headley George has been off for some time and returns at a track he knows well. Had consistent form at this level and sure to make his presence felt as he comes back to form.

Brilliant Blue 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
17:30, Kempton Park

Although a non-winner as a juvenile, Brilliant Blue ran well enough to earn a 79 rating, but he did virtually nothing in four runs between May and July last year. The final two were especially poor and after a four-month break, returning here over 7f, he was again disappointing. We're expecting a lot more today as we appear to have BB in a better place. A first-time visor and a step up to a mile are also likely positives. 

Recuerdame 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
16:55, Kempton Park

Recuerdame has been admirably consistent this season and has plenty of form to recommend him. Vulnerable to improvers at this stage of his career and needs things to fall right but still capable when they do and hard to disregard here.

Dynakite 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
16:55, Kempton Park

Dynakite has been disappointing since joining the team in the summer of last year. I'm hoping that the little break he's had since then will spark him into some better form, but for now he is probably best watched.

Skinflint 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
16:00, Hereford

Skinflint is in good form at home and his CD 2nd on his most recent run back in Ferbruary puts him in with a live chance. While he is not only to fully trust, he has a top man onboard who is sure to get the best out of him.

Jersey Lady 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
15:30, Hereford

Non-runner

Canzone 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
15:20, Newcastle

Canzone needed the run badly last time at Southwell and has come on really good in the interim. He will strip a lot fitter today and can go close.

Six O' Hearts 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
14:50, Newcastle

Six O'Hearts put in his best run to date with a staying-on 3rd over 5f at Wolverhampton two runs back. It's probably unfair to judge him on his latest run over the same CD last time as after missing the break and running very free, he was denied a run repeatedly in the straight. Up a furlong, he might do better on this stiffer, straight course.

Endofastorm    WINNER! winner
Wed 4th Jan 2023
12:50, Newcastle

Endofastorm ran better last time and has good form on this track. Hopeful she can show her best in which case she could run into the money.

Kitten's Dream 
Wed 4th Jan 2023
11:50, Newcastle

Kitten's Dream put in a sub-par run last week, certainly compared with two strong finishes into a place the previous twice. All three times, he started very lethargically and it was unsurprising if he didn't feel quite so ready to try to retrieve the deficit a third time. A better exit would go a long way towards getting a better outcome.

Bungle Bay    WINNER! winner
Tue 3rd Jan 2023
18:30, Wolverhampton

Bungle Bay went close under today's rider over CD two weeks ago. This is a deep race and although he is at the bottom of the handicap his task is made more difficult by his draw in 10. Each-way chance.

Harmonious 
Tue 3rd Jan 2023
18:00, Wolverhampton

Harmonious is a long-term maiden and since his latest 2nd place in August he has been running moderately at distances between 1m4f and 2m. Hard to be enthusiastic about his chance tonight.

Light Up Our Stars 
Tue 3rd Jan 2023
17:00, Wolverhampton

Light Up Our Stars has won plenty of races up to a mile, both before joining us and since he's been here. Last time at Southwell he kept going well to finish a close fourth at a mile suggesting he might stay the extra distance today. Place chances if he does.

Fix At All 
Tue 3rd Jan 2023
14:45, Musselburgh

Fix At All ran very poorly at Ayr yesterday. It will take a very quick transformation for him to be involved in what looks a more competitive race, at least on paper.

Gris Gris Top 
Tue 3rd Jan 2023
13:45, Musselburgh

Gris Gris Top showed ability in his novice hurdles but is also very fragile and has not run for a long time. This is his first go over fences. Ground and trip should be fine but is probably best watched today with all the issues we have had getting him here.

Fix At All 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
15:45, Ayr

Fix At All ran better than the result last time probably not quite seeing out the trip. The drop to 2m on testing ground should be ideal. There are only four runners, so not a deep contest, and he should take all the beating.

Saligo Bay 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
15:30, Plumpton

Saligo Bay joined from the Charltons just over a year ago and has been very consistent ever since. He was awarded his latest race at Lingfield in the stewards' room and is 4lb higher now.  He should still be there with a chance but 12st in this ground is hardly a gift.

Tara Iti 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
15:30, Plumpton

Our other runner in this race, Tara Iti has been struggling on the prevailing soft ground lately. We are claiming off him and that could help him challenge for a place.

Lady Ursula 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
15:23, Lingfield

Lady Ursula surprised me last time as she ran a cracker in the first time visor. Interestingly, her work at home seems to have improved since that run too and I think this track will suit her. If the visor works again then she can go close.

Teruntum Star 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
15:08, Newcastle

Teruntum Star, now an 11-year-old, gained the 10th and 11th successes of his long career - all on turf - in the autumn. He has now run seven times on AW and the evidence of the last three after those two recent turf wins, is that we will do well to find a race he can win over the winter.

Park This One 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
13:30, Plumpton

Non-runner

American Rose 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
13:23, Lingfield

It was a promising performance from American Rose last time at Wolverhampton to win her maiden. I'm not sure what she beat that day and this race will tell us how good she is. She has a widish draw but track and trip will suit her. Seems fairly handicapped with he initial mark so should be thereabouts.

Hansard    WINNER! winner
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
13:00, Plumpton

Hansard joined from Charles O'Brien for whom he won a bumper. He was very impressive first time out at Huntingdon in a strong novice hurdle for the track. The Twiston-Davies horse looks decent but he will need to be.

Tenfold 
Mon 2nd Jan 2023
13:00, Plumpton

Tenfold was a massive price at Lingfield when setting off very freely and soon pulling into a long lead. He held on for longer than expected and his late fade was understandable. There are signs he might be improving.

Fine Wine 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
16:56, Southwell

Fine Wine is continuing to defy the handicapper. After a busy summer on turf, when he won a good race at York, he has returned to all weather winning here and at Newcastle. He now stands on a mark of 103, but doesn't appear to be coming to the end of his tether. I'm hoping he can make it a hat-trick.

Cloud Dancer 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
15:40, Cheltenham

Cloud Dancer makes his debut in this junior bumper where he will meet plenty of previous winners. By Jukebox Jury from a good German family, we are hoping he will be competitive first time out.

Jessie Lightfoot 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
15:30, Fakenham

Jessie Lightfoot is in great form and the ground will be ideal. She won impresssively last time, but is up 10lb, and while she has a live chance, she is a very short price. Hopeful.

Hey Frankie 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
15:30, Fakenham

Hey Frankie was slightly disappointing last time but she should bounce back to form in this. The Fakenham track is probably sharp enough for her but ground conditions should be fine. She stays and jumps well and while the favourite looks well in, she shouldn't be far away.

Faitque De L'Isle 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
15:00, Catterick

Faitque De L'Isle was too keen last time and as a result pulled his chance away far too early. Hopefully he will settle better here and the hood should help him do so. This is a weak race so if he does settle he should go close. Conditions are a slight unknown, but he has handled soft ground in France.

A Time To Shine 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
14:40, Exeter

A Time To Shine had the whole of last season off with a tendon injury. When he runs today at Exeter he will have been off the track for 658 days. He had useful form over hurdles and when going chasing he finished second staying on well at Hereford. I ran him back at Warwick but it was too soon and he pulled up. We hope he can show promise for the future now.

Botox Has 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
14:30, Cheltenham

Botox Has is continuing to show improvement and both this season's runs have been indicative of that progress. He is 6lb higher for his last-time win at Haydock and as a result carries 12st in a very strong race. Both his previous runs have been at three miles and dropping back to 2m4f is another extra difficulty although under these conditions they will need to stay every yard - as he will.

Nassalam 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
13:55, Cheltenham

Nassalam had a truncated season in 2021-22 but won a couple of times. He has not been quite so sharp so far this term and we are trying first-time cheek-pieces to see if they can rekindle his undoubted talent. This is a very tough race in which for him to try to find it though.

Git Maker 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
13:50, Catterick

Git Maker has a great jumps pedigree - by Saddler Maker out of a mare from a lovely French family. A winner of his final Irish point-to-point, he had a fine first season over hurdles winning three of his four starts. The highlight was his final success under a double penalty at Newcastle which made it a clean sweep of wins at all UK jumps courses for team Jamie Snowden Racing. Returning over fences, he was a promising 2nd on debut at Sandown and stepped up on that to be beaten half a length last time at Kelso. Off the same mark here, this looks a golden opportunity for him.

Park This One 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
12:40, Catterick

Park This One, by Walk In The Park, is out of an unraced sister to Listed five-time winner Santia and to smart Lord Over. He came to us after winning an English point-to-point and following a 2nd on Rules debut, impressively won a bumper at Exeter. He then won first time over hurdles at Uttoxeter before running a creditable 4th in a Grade 2 last time out. Back in calmer waters here, he should be able to defy the penalty. 

Upton Road 
Sun 1st Jan 2023
12:20, Exeter

Upton Road didn't run any sort of race last time but now back to a track where he has run well before, we'll give him another chance. He jumps and stays well and also handles deep ground effectively. He is on a mark from which he is more than capable of winning and I am hopeful he will do just that.

Bobmahley 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:28, Uttoxeter

Bobmahley appears to be in great form and all the conditions suit him today, albeit it's a competitive race. We think he has rock-solid each-way chances.

Patient Owner 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:28, Uttoxeter

Patient Owner showed promise over hurdles last season. He's bred to be a better chaser and starts in this novice handicap off a slightly reduced mark. Each-way shout in an open event.

East Bridge 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:20, Warwick

East Bridge makes his debut in the bumper. He's a horse we've had for two years but he's had lots of problems with his feet including a fractured pedal bone. A lovely-looking big gelding, he's a typical horse of his late owner's and while he goes nicely enough, he's a proper galloper.

Big Bard 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:15, Lingfield

We run two here also. It was only by inches that Big Bard failed to win any one of three successive sprints in the autumn, the first two at Brighton. He has disappointed more recently but Brighton form lends itself to Lingfield even on AW and the number one draw is a big help over 6f.

Daphne May 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:15, Lingfield

Multiple previous winner Daphne May is a recent bargain (we hope!) acquisition. She had a first run for us over this 6f last week, not really getting involved and most of her form is over longer distances. Hopefully she will be better for last week's run.

You Wear It Well 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:00, Newbury

You Wear It Well is a Midnight Legend daughter of a black type mare that has produced three winners from four runners. She was 2nd on her racecourse debut at Ludlow and then won a bumper on her next start. We always liked her and, switched to hurdles after showing she jumps well, she won on seasonal/hurdles debut then bolted up under a penalty at Hexham. This for her too is a huge step up in class but she is totally unexposed and could be very good. 

Passing Well 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
15:00, Newbury

Passing Well is by top French sire Coastal Path from a good female family. He finished 2nd in a 21-runner bumper at the Punchestown Festival last spring, despite having problems in running and fulfilled all that promise with a debut win over hurdles for us at Uttoxeter. It was always the intention to come to the Challow after that and while it's a huge step up in class, he should run a big race.

Striking Out

Non-runner

Generous Day 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
14:45, Warwick

Generous Day took advantage of a lower mark when making all last time at Southwell, but the handicapper has not wasted time in putting him back up again. Can still be competitive as he's in great form and I'm hopeful he can at least go close again here.

Cokytho 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
14:45, Warwick

Cokytho came over from France a couple of months ago after my landlord Charlie Mann bought him for a syndicate. Only four, he's already had nine runs over fences, jumps well and will need proper soft ground to show his best. Charlie points out that he's had a busy autumn and might need a break, so hopefully he'll show promise today and we can look forward to a bright future with him.

Tallow For Coal 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
14:25, Newbury

Tallow For Coal is half-brother to two black type winners and is from the female family of Denman. He won his maiden Irish point and then was placed in all three novice hurdles. He was always going to be a better chaser though and won two novice handicaps last season. He returned in style this time, winning an Intermediate chase in the manner of an improving young horse. This will be his first step into open company and 11st12lb is a daunting weight in this fiercely competitive handicap. That said, he is still a young horse with hopefully much more to come.

Warranty 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
13:50, Newbury

When Warranty joined us midway through last season,  it was a case of so near yet so far with three 2nd places in four. Since he came back in, a switch seems to have clicked and he is poised to complete a hat-trick. Up 7lb for his last win, we're claiming off Warranty today and Jamie rides Moulins Clermont.

Moulins Clermont    WINNER! winner
Sat 31st Dec 2022
13:50, Newbury

Moulins Clermont won a couple of races in good style last season after joining from France. He had a long summer break before returning recently at Kempton. Still relatively inexperienced, he should improve for that run and the 4lb shaved off his mark will be a help in a race where we run two.

Maclaine 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
13:43, Uttoxeter

Maclaine won last time at Fontwell and while he looked all out, there was plenty against him. He's a huge horse (17hh) and the sharp track wasn't ideal and the trip too short. He's looking more furnished these days and while he won't be at his peak until going chasing next season, we are hopeful he will put in a good show first time in a handicap.

Royal Lake 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
13:08, Uttoxeter

Royal Lake has had two runs over fences, slipping on landing and pulling up early on debut and then he clearly didn't enjoy his second run around here so we've reverted to the smaller obstacles. He's been much happier schooling over hurdles and has been working well. 

Victory House 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
12:55, Lingfield

Victory House ran great last time and is improving with every run. We have to take on the horse that beat us last time at Wolverhampton but my fella is improving rapidly and from a lovely draw, can go very close again.

Inneston 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
12:40, Newbury

Newbury midwinter novice hurdles take plenty of winning but we like what we've seen from Inneston. Winner of his one run in a French bumper in October last year, he is a Doctor Dino half-brother to the top-class Delta Work and we are very much looking foward to his debut over jumps.

Jupiter Du Gite    WINNER! winner
Sat 31st Dec 2022
12:40, Newbury

We also run the 3yo Jupiter Du Gite here for his first time over jumps and in the UK. Third on his one run in France in the spring, he gets plenty of weight as the only juvenile in the line-up. Again we're excited to get him on the track.

Amidnightstar 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
12:25, Warwick

Amidnightstar ran well in a bumper on good ground at Stratford. Her future lies over fences where she will reach her full potential. Any experience she gets now will be of benefit to her.

Arctician 
Sat 31st Dec 2022
11:50, Lingfield

Artician is starting to look better handicapped and a top rider booked so his turn is coming. Wide draw no particular help but likely to be a strong finisher and could go well if things fall right for him.

Endofastorm 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Endofatorm has been disappointing the last couple of times but her second at Southwell before that to Southwold was made to look fair form by the winner's third yesterday. Well drawn and a small each-way chance if repeating the Southwell performance.

Visibility 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

With two wins here and several other good performances over the past couple of months, Visibility remains in good shape. This smaller field should be to his advantage and I expect another solid run this evening.

Duke Of Firenze 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

Non-runner

Jack Sprat 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
15:30, Haydock

Jack Sprat is by prolific jumps sire Walk In The Park out of a mare from a black type family. He was backed and ridden away last season and after a winter's education made a promising debut when 4th in his bumper at Chepstow. Green and backward that day, he improved over the summer and put in an improved display at Exeter last month. I think he has progressed again and should be placed here.

Luckello 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
15:15, Taunton

Luckello is an improving mare running off a nice weight having won her last two in point-to-points. We are uncertain about the ground but are expecting a big run assuming she handles it. Solid chance.

Havanella 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
15:15, Taunton

Havanella ran well on her chase debut at Hereford, jumping well but two and a half miles is too short for her. She has been ready to run for ages but this winter has been impossible, dry ground followed by frost. At least it means she's fresh and well and hopefully she can enjoy a busier spring.

Republican 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
14:45, Taunton

Republican has plenty of ability but he has had so much bad luck over the past couple of seasons and has completely lost his confidence. In an attempt to help him regain it, we've brought him back hurdling this season and he ran okay on debut. Hopefully as the confidence returns we can get him back to somewhere near his useful novice form.

Thomas Macdonagh 
Fri 30th Dec 2022
14:00, Haydock

Having been placed in a couple of bumpers, Thomas Macdonagh has won three races over hurdles and a novice chase. Unfortunately, last season was a bit frustrating as he didn't take to the Grand National fences in the Grand Sefton and it took him a while to get his confidence back. Despite this, he still ran some fine races including narrowly beaten in this race last year off 2lb higher. He needed his comeback run over hurdles last month but now back over fences, on deep ground at a track where he goes well, I like to think he can go close in this race again.

Danah Star 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
19:30, Southwell

Danah Star is dropping back in trip and this more galloping track should suit her. We are putting a red hot 7lb claimer on board today and she is well worth a small each-way bet.

Justcallmepete    WINNER! winner
Thu 29th Dec 2022
18:30, Southwell

Justcallmepete came back to form with a brilliant run down the outside at Lingfield, getting up on the line. If he can build on that on this more galloping track, he should be thereabouts.

Fai Fai 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
18:30, Southwell

Slowly but surely, Fai Fai is getting closer to winning a race. He seems to be settling much better now hence we feel the step back to 6f will suit. He also drops another grade which should make things easier. He is well dfrawn too so there is plenty to be positive about.

Catesby 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
18:30, Southwell

Catesby won at Wolverhampoton in the spring but since returning from a summer break he has been way short of winning again. His mark has finally dipped below 60, his previous winning figure and hopefully there are better times ahead.

Evening Story 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
17:00, Southwell

Evening Story has improved for each start and will enjoy the extra furlong. She should be competitive off her mark, but is not well drawn.

Corporate Raider 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
17:00, Southwell

Corporate Raider makes his debut for the yard here. He has settled in well and his work has been good. We hope that the step up in trip and drop in grade will bring some improvement to his form. Hopefully he will have an each-way chance at a good price.

Southwold 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
16:30, Southwell

Our secind runner here, Southwold, won nicely on debut and should have more to come as he showed signs of inexperience that day.

Glam Puss    WINNER! winner
Thu 29th Dec 2022
16:30, Southwell

We run two in this Restricted novice stakes. Glam Puss looked raw when second on debut and should improve for the extra furlong.

Mudlahhim 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
16:00, Southwell

Mudlahhim has been a decent sprinter in his day but he seems to have completely lost his form. We are pretty much waiting for a sign that better times could be around the corner.

Kansas City Chief 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
13:55, Doncaster

Kansas City Chief is a grand old favourite who turns 14 on Sunday! Age hasn't dimmed his enthusiasm and it is easy to excuse his run at Cheltenham which came too soon after a much better showing at Wetherby on seasonal return. He will love this track and ground and I think he has a small each-way chance today.

Lady Valentine 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
13:20, Doncaster

Lady Valentine is a filly by No Nay Never and while she isn't really bred to stay, some of her best flat runs have been at 1m6f on soft ground! She schools well at home and seems to enjoy her jumping so she should have a future in this discipline. She'll improve for the experience and it will certainly be interesting to see her on the track today.

Haddex Des Obeaux    WINNER! winner
Thu 29th Dec 2022
12:45, Doncaster

Haddex Des Obeaux won a handicap hurdle in October last year after arriving from France but then had almost a year off before unseating at the last on his debut over fences at Newton Abbot when looking held. He did much better last month when 2nd at Kempton and should be ready to go one better in this tricky handicap chase.

Coastguard Station 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
12:45, Doncaster

Coastguard Station made a winning debut over fences around here last month. He's up in class today but the track and ground are ideal and he looks a nice each-way bet at 14/1.

Datsalrightgino 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
12:45, Doncaster

Datsalrightgino was 2nd in three bumpers before having a fruitful novice hurdle campaign last season, winning twice including at Cheltenham. He ran well to be 2nd on chasing debut at Newton Abbot in a race that has worked out well and then won very impressively at Chepstow. Up 9lb for that, he improved again to be 3rd at the big November Newbury meeting despite finding the ground a bit too quick. Back on genuine good to soft/soft ground today he should run another big race in this competitive affair. 

Hermino AA 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
12:10, Doncaster

Hermino AA made a promising start when 2nd on debut in an Ascot bumper last month. He has a nice French pedigree although bought in Ireland as a 3yo, and he looks an interesting contender first time over hurdles.

Heads Or Harps 
Thu 29th Dec 2022
12:10, Doncaster

Heads Or Harps disappointed on first start for us when after travelling well he stopped very quickly at Worcester. He's on a recovery mission today and works like a good horse at home and impressively won his point. We will need to see more than last time though before getting too excited.

Milldam 
Wed 28th Dec 2022
14:35, Leicester

Milldam is by Martaline out of a mare from a strong winning French family. He was placed in all three starts in juvenile hurdles in France, arriving here midway through last season. He was in midfield in the Boodles at the Festival in March and although he has been 2nd and then 3rd in two runs this time, I'm not sure we've quite found the key to him. But with a first-time tongue-tie, on very testing ground and off bottom-weight in a handicap, we might finally be able to unlock the undoubted potential.

I Am Gonna Be 
Wed 28th Dec 2022
13:03, Catterick

I Am Gonna Be is going the right way. Winner of her bumper at Newcastle last season, she improved on earlier hurdles form to win a 2m4f mares' novice hurdle on the same track last time. Into handicaps, she has not been harshly treated but now faced with male opposition, she will need to progress again to win.

Adamhill 
Wed 28th Dec 2022
12:10, Leicester

Adamhill has yet to finish in the first four either in bumpers or his two runs in novice hurdles. He did get a little closer last time but is sure to be a big outsider again today and it will not be until he can meet his own class in low-grade handicaps that we will be holding out any extravagant expectations.

Ornate 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Ornate is also in great shape and for once he has a good draw from which to cast his spell of early speed. It wasn't so long ago that he added a real will to win to his best-known characteristic coming home in front at Chelmsford and hopefully he can show his celebrated qualities today.

Harbour Vision 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

We've been keeping Harbour Vision busy and he rewarded us with two nice wins, before falling a little below that the last twice. Inevitably his mark has gone up but he still wasn't beaten far even though 7th last time, and he is always one to consider in this type of handicap.

Kitten's Dream 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
18:00, Wolverhampton

Kitten's Dream could have won both his last two races with even a moderately acceptable start but he has got into the habit of losing lots of ground at the traps. He did especially well last time to get so close and if he is in the same form again, he could make amends..

Duke Of Firenze 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

The legend that is Duke Of Firenze is in great shape for what is planned to be his final run before his well-earned retirement. Hopefully he can finish on a good performance, but of course he owes us nothing.

Dark Shot 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
16:30, Wolverhampton

Dark Shot is always to be feared as when winning three runs back at Southwell. Two poor efforts followed including first time ever on this track before another unconvincing display back at Southwell. Could pop up at any time in this grade and he has a nice draw to take a good position going into the bend. 

Invincible Nao 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
15:40, Kempton Park

Invincible Nao, winner of a novice race in France befire joining us, was well beaten first time out in a novice race over here. In that context his initial mark of 127 looked tough and although off that he did finish 3rd, he was beaten a long way and has been dropped 5lb for today. Whether that will be enough to bring him more into this argument is something we will find out today.

Dalamoi 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
15:25, Chepstow

Dalamoi is an extremely exciting horse who ought to excel with this step up in trip. We are hoping for a huge run.

Super Survivor    WINNER! winner
Tue 27th Dec 2022
15:25, Chepstow

Super Survivor is by the sire of Grade 1 winner The Storyteller out of a winning half-sister to triple Gold Cup winner Best Mate. He was 2nd in an Irish point before joining us last summer. He had a great season's novice hurdling, winning two and finishing 2nd in the other. He is built to be a proper staying chaser so despite his lack of experience we've sent him over fences and he was an excellent 2nd on debut at Uttoxeter. He will improve for that run and should appreciate the step up in trip. Interesting.

Larry 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
15:09, Kempton Park

Larry was an impressive winner of his comeback race at Ascot which must rank possibly as a career-best. We're claiming to offset the rise in his mark and hopefully he can be right in the thick of things at the business end again.

Movethechains 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
14:50, Chepstow

Four consecutive wins for Movethechains, all over the Lingfield 3m from October last year to February resulted in his mark going from 80 to 128 with the last 28lb coming from the final two performances. It's hard to know where they ought to place him but at no stage did he look as though going up to 3m6f would be a problem for him. Could be exciting days ahead, starting today.  

Editeur Du Gite    WINNER! winner
Tue 27th Dec 2022
14:30, Kempton Park

Editeur Du Gite  ran a nice third on his recent comeback at Cheltenham. This level-weights Grade 2 may stretch him a little but he has plenty of class and deserves a shot at a race of this kind.

 

Bells Of Peterboro    WINNER! winner
Tue 27th Dec 2022
14:10, Chepstow

Bells Of Peterboro won this race last year and comes here in good form. He would have preferred slower ground but has solid each-way claims anyway.

Perseus Way 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
13:40, Chepstow

Perseus Way was promising at Cheltenham and very impressive at Leicester. This Sea The Stars gelding is clearly going the right way and is a juvenile with a future. This galloping track is made for him and we have to be hopeful he can take the next step up the ladder today.

The Big Bite 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
13:05, Chepstow

This is a very competitive race but The Big Bote is dropping back in trip and is back down to his last winning mark having been a fair bit higher. A previous course winner, he has each-way chances with that Newcastle run in the Rehearsal Chase to tighten him up behind him.

Keaden Hill 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
12:30, Chepstow

Keaden Hill looks a lovely type but is in at the deep end in a really competitive race. Winner by a wide margin of his last two British points, it wouldn't be the biggest surprise if he were to out-perform his odds on this Rules debut.

Nordy Lordy 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
12:30, Chepstow

Nordy Lordy is best watched today. He would have to improve a great deal to be competitive in this hot contest.

Kap Chidley 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
12:00, Chepstow

We bought Kap Chidley after his close second in an Irish point. He is an extremely nice type with a good pedigree. We are excited to get him started and learn about him but suspect a longer trip will suit him in time.

Invincible De Mee 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
12:00, Chepstow

Invincible De Mee looks like he will need to go in lower grade handicaps to make an impact. This novice contest is a very competitive race.

Let Me Entertain U 
Tue 27th Dec 2022
11:50, Wetherby

Let Me Entertain U has plenty of ability but doesn't always want to put it all in. He has been running consistently of late but this race looks deeper than those he has been contesting. Ground and trip are fine and as I say, he has the ability to win if he wanted to.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
16:45, Wolverhampton

Kentucky Kingdom ran well from a break last month. He should have come on from that and ought to have an each-way chance in what looks like an open contest.

Via Serendipity 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
16:10, Wolverhampton

Via Serendipity ran a cracker at Lingfield last time out and the form has been franked nicely since. The 9.5 furlongs around Wolverhampton will suit him well as does a small field. He can go very close again.

Royaume Uni 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
15:40, Kempton Park

We run two here. Royaume Uni did well last spring and made a perfectly acceptable comeback run at Plumpton in October. Each-way hopes in an open handicap hurdle. 

Vorashann 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
15:40, Kempton Park

Vorashann has done all his winning at Fontwell, and had two more victories there this autumn before his latest unplaced run at Sandown where he set off to make the running. He is probably our lesser chance of the pair.

Hudson De Grugy 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
15:05, Kempton Park

Hudson De Grugy was beaten a long way in a three-horse race around here last time. He has yet to prove he stays this far and the company is pretty hot too.

Bells Of Stamford 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:57, Huntingdon

Bells Of Stamford is bred for this job and it looks like he can only improve for a fence. He made a promising start to chasing at Market Rasen last month and with that experience behind him can take advantage of bottom-weight.

Boys Of Wexford    WINNER! winner
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:57, Huntingdon

Boys Of Wexford won nicely last time at Uttoxeter. He remains in good form and still looks well weighted. He enjoyed forcing the pace there and I'm hopeful he can put in a repeat performance here.

Mister Tickle 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:52, Fontwell Park

Mister Tickle racked up an autumn hat-trick in staying chases last year but has been well short of that since coming back into action this year. His mark is lower though and hopefully that might encourage the start of a revival.

Representing Bob 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:50, Market Rasen

Representing Bob is out of a winning Bob Back mare and from the family of Gold Cup winner Synchronised - suitable for a Lincolnshire National. Green and backward in his three hurdles, he started handicapping from a favourable position and exploited that last season with three wins over fences along with two close 2nd places. Still not the finished article, we didn't overrace him and there should be more to come this time. A good 2nd on his return at Uttoxeter he followed with another and hopefully he will be ready for this step up in grade when the first-time blinkers should help him. Each-way chance.

Airtothethrone 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:22, Huntingdon

Airtothethrone won very nicely last time out and looks to be an improving sort. We think the drop in trip should not be an issue and he goes there with strong claims.

Aviles 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:17, Fontwell Park

Aviles has run in two juvenile hurdles at Fontwell and each time has come to the last flight with a chance before weakening up the hill in 2nd. Hopefully he can make it third-time-lucky today!

Animal 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
14:03, Wincanton

Animal was left with too much to do last time when he could have gone very close. Today's trip is slightly on the short side - he is better at 2 and 3/4 miles - but he has enough pace to be involved in the finish today. Each-way chances.

Legal Rights 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:47, Huntingdon

Legal Rights had a profitable time last winter in staying hurdle handicaps but has been a little lack-lustre so far this season. His rider reported him as running lazily last time, so we've applied first-time blinkers in the hope they make a difference. Each-way chance if they do.

Oscarsman 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:47, Huntingdon

Oscarsman has been running well this season and the ground should suit. He would have preferred a greater test of stamina and the race looks competitive, but with a 5lb claimer booked, he looks to have an each-way chance.

Teddy Blue 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:42, Fontwell Park

Non-runn

Yorksea    WINNER! winner
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:42, Fontwell Park

Yorksea ran in decent company last winter, ending with a wide-margin win on this card. He probably needed his comeback run at Newbury, but whether he can pull back all the distance by which Teddy Blue beat him is probably doubtful.

Dirham Emirati 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:42, Fontwell Park

Dirham Emirati shaped promisingly on both his hurdles starts last season but was beaten a long way on last month's return to action. He looks our number three here on current form.

Counteract 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:15, Huntingdon

Non-runner

Copperfasten 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
13:00, Wetherby

Copperfasten has plenty of ability and ought to be reasonably handicapped off this mark. She needs to step up on her last run though to take advantage of it.

Goshen 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
12:45, Kempton Park

It was great when Goshen showed his true self when going back to hurdles at Ascot last time after his disappointment over fences there previously. We have been wanting to try him over three miles, but it could hardly be a bigger test even if it's a smallish field. If he wins, it will open up more possibilities for him.

Can't Beat History 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
12:30, Market Rasen

Can't Beat History is a promising horse who has been working well. He has some nice Irish bumper form but this is a competitive novice hurdle and he might be best watched on jumps/stable debut.

Jean Genie 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
12:27, Wetherby

Jean Genie was disappointing last time but we think the track was too tight for him. This big, galloping circuit ought to suit him much better. Each-way claims.

He's A Latchico 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
12:10, Kempton Park

He's A Latchico completed a hat-trick on all-weather early in the year and only recently returned with a low-key comeback run. He is highly tried for this debut over hurdles and may be best watched in this company.

Givega 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
11:57, Fontwell Park

Givega gained a big reputation when winning his one Irish point back in May and could hardly have been more impressive when winnng on his hurdles debut for us earlier in the month at Lingfield. Hopefully he can continue the upward progression by defying the penalty here.

Hector Jaguen 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
11:57, Fontwell Park

Hector Jaguen, our other runner in this novice event, also came from the Irish pointing field where he was placed 2nd once. He has been slow to get the hang of hurdling and it will probably be in handicaps that he can be best employed later on.

Vintage Rascal 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
11:57, Fontwell Park

I bought Vintage Rascal on spec. Our second runner in this novice contest, he has had some little niggles on the way to this debut and is very much a work in progress. Look and learn is the idea for today.

Scrum Diddly 
Mon 26th Dec 2022
11:57, Fontwell Park

We run two in this novice race. Scrum Diddly ran in a bollocks of a race at Ascot and while he was disappointing it wasn't really his fault and he has shown us a fair bit at home. He jumps well and while I am not expecting him to win, I think he'll run a good race. 

Odin's Quest 
Fri 23rd Dec 2022
15:32, Huntingdon

Odin's Quest won on debut around here in January and after his break didn't do a bad job of trying to cope with his penalty when 4th at Ascot. The one with the form, but it would not be a shock if a smart unexposed one lurked somewhere in the line-up.

Boys Of Wexford 
Fri 23rd Dec 2022
14:57, Huntingdon

Boys Of Wexford won his latest race at Uttoxeter in great style. He is in good form and still weighted to go well. He enjoyed forcing the pace there and similar tactics could work again.

Masqool 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
19:30, Southwell

Masqool has done us proud this year with five wins and although he has found it slightly more difficult the last three times since his rating went into the 70's, he continues to run with credit. Two of his victories have been over this CD and it would not be a shock if this genuine and consistent performer got his head in front once more.

Mudlahhim 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
19:30, Southwell

Mudlahhim was rated 89 when making his debut for the yard at the beginning of the year. He is now down to 66 and has offered little sign of arresting the slide. It's time he began to show something.

Ebury 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
18:30, Southwell

Ebury has had a host of good opportunities lately but continues not to make the most of them. He is liable to pop up and win one but he is rapidly losing his fan club with the number of times he has been a beaten favourite.

Sociologist 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
17:30, Southwell

Sociologist has been kept busy around here of late but he has not been matching recent turf runs. He has come down a few pounds and if ridden with more restraint than last time when he went a long way clear in the first half of the race, he might last home better. Place chances.

Colonial Empire    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
15:40, Ffos Las

Colonial Empire has been a model of consistency. He won impressively last time out at Leicester and with only a 4lb rise in his mark, he can come out on top in a competitive but ordinary enough handicap hurdle.

Weaver's Answer    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
15:40, Ffos Las

Weaver's Answer has been very immature in his runs to date in novice events. This lower-grade contest should help him find his feet and now he is in handicaps off a low mark, he will be far more competitive although it could take a race or two for him to work it all out. 

Daphne May 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
15:20, Lingfield

Daphne May is a four-time winning filly who reached a peak of 79 in summer 2021 with previous connections. She is now on a career-low of 60 as she makes her stable debut after being acquired for only 7,000gns this month. We are looking forward to see how she responds to her new surroundings.

Wake Up Harry 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
15:20, Lingfield

Wake Up Harry was too keen over much further on return and now goes right back in distance. It's not guaranteed to suit but he should at least be finishing and does have plenty of ability.

Shantou Sunset 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
15:10, Ffos Las

Shantou Sunset should have come on for her stable debut when fourth at Ascot behind Coquelicot in a competitive mares' handicap hurdle. She appears in great form at home and as all conditions come alike to her, we think she has a great each-way chance here under top-weight.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
14:50, Lingfield

It looks like Hul Ah Bah Loo's turn is not too far away as he has been running on well in his last two starts over 7f and should enjoy going up to 1m. Arguably better at this track than Kempton, he should be thereabouts if he gets a good run round. He seems in good shape at home.

Tequilamockingbird    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
14:20, Lingfield

Tequilamockingbird is unbeaten over course and distance and loves to come off a strong pace which she should get today, She seems in good order and is very easy to keep fit so the race delay will not have done her any harm. This is slightly tougher than the original field but she should still go well.

Galop Du Bosc 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
14:10, Ffos Las

Galop Du Bosc is trying a much higher grade than he has been competing in, the plus side being he has a much lower weight. I think he is best watched today at this level.

Sir Sedric 
Thu 22nd Dec 2022
11:50, Lingfield

Sir Sedric has to be ridden with restraint and covered up until late before coming with a run, an instruction tactic his young rider failed to listen to last time, giving him far too much daylight. Rob Hornby can be relied upon to drop him in from the one draw and hopefully bring him with one late flourish. Nice each-way price.

Harbour Vision 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Harbour Vision won two in a row and looked sure to make it a hat-trick when securing a good lead from the inside in an amateur riders' handicap here last week. He runs off 10lb higher tonight than for the first of those wins and we hope his capable rider's claim will help offset that.

Amber Dew 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

Amber Dew was caught only in the last strides in her penultimate run over course and distance last month, but did not run anywhere near that when 7th on her latest outing. We are trying first-time cheek-pieces tonight but her draw on the outside in nine is hardly an encouragement.

Bungle Bay 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Bungle Bay is taking time to get the hang of racing but the handicapper has now given him an opening. Has ability, so with a decent passage from his plum draw he should be thereabouts tonight.

Victory House 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

Victory House has progressed with every run and I will be disappointed if he doesn't take another step forward today. The trip and track should suit and we have a very good jockey on board. Hopeful each-way.

Roger Pol 
Wed 21st Dec 2022

Non-runner

Amidnightstar 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
15:45, Hereford

Amidnightstar is a strong mare who shaped well in 2nd in a Stratford summer bumper. Easier ground and a more galloping track should help, so with that vital experience under her belt, she should give a good account in what looks a competitive race full of well-bred types.

Isle Of Aron 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:45, Hereford

Isle Of Aron ran a blinder last time at Exeter and this step up in trip ought to suit him in what looks a competitive race. Solid each-way claims.

Fortune Cookie 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:45, Hereford

Fortune Cookie makes his debut for the stable today just 3lb off top-weight in this 0-100 handicap hurdle. Back in Ireland he was tailed off in his only handicap off a mark 10lb lower. It's hard to see how he can be a factor here and he is clearly best watched today.

Thor De Cerisy 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:30, Lingfield

Thor De Cerisy ran well when 3rd around here on his first start this season and if he can back that up today he must have a decent chance. The return to two miles should not pose any issue especially under today's conditions. He loves heavy ground - it cannot be soft enough for him!

Pappa Rocco Coco 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:23, Taunton

Pappa Rocco Coco is by Shirocco out of an unraced sister to five-time winner Coco Opera, herself dam of good winners Arctic Skipper and Charlie Longsdon's Castle Robin. He looks to have plenty of speed but was green and backward on his debut and didn't handle an all-weather surface the last day. He jumps well and should have a future but it might be further down the line.

Nordy Lordy 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:23, Taunton

Nordy Lordy disappointed on his only previous start for us when he appeared very novicey in his running. I think he will still need the experience of today's outing.

Executive Pool 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:00, Lingfield

We run two in this 0-105 handicap hurdle and while they are close together in overnight betting, they come here from widely differing perspectives. Executive Pool, by Churchill, was placed in all three runs in juvenile hurdles, a good 2nd the last twice. As a 3yo he gets a massive 15lb wfa allowance from his elders and although he is rated within 6lb of our other runner Tara Iti, he carries 21lb less. Jamie rides him.

Tara Iti 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
14:00, Lingfield

We're claiming off Tara Iti to help reduce his big weight. Placed in both runs this autumn, he too has a decent each-way chance but it's hard to know what to expect in relation to our other runner,

Ozzie Man 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Non-runner

Trixster 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
13:23, Taunton

Trixster is in great form and everything should suit him about today's race - a deal easier than the one he contested last time at Cheltenham. He has massive each-way claims.

Faitque De Lisle 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
13:23, Taunton

Faitque De Lisle didn't run too badly at Leicester last time - it all happened too quickly for him over 2m6f. The step up in trip should suit him and the ground will be fine. Lucy Turner takes off 5lb which will also help. Hopeful.

Heaven Smart 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
13:00, Lingfield

Heaven Smart was 2nd in two Irish points early in the year and would have filled the same position again bar falling at the last fence on his final start. His initial 2nd over hurdles was not as good as might be imagined as he was a long way behind Scarface at Plumpton and he was very disappointing on a return trip there. He has had a break since and we are hopeful he could put in a decent effort now.

Princess Poppy 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
12:30, Lingfield

Princess Polly went through the ring at  Doncaster May sales. She is a 4yo filly by Okavango and while she has shown ability at home, the stables represented here for this newcomers' race suggest it might take a fair bit of winning. We will be loooking for an encouraging start to her career.

Starevitch 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
12:15, Hereford

Starevitch is a half-brother to French 2m1f chase winner Laskov and to the dam of champion Douvan. Starevitch won an Irish point-to-point on debut and was 3rd in a Huntingdon bumper. He picked up an injury soon after and missed the whole of last season. He has been off the track for 638 days so is bound to improve for today's outing but he is in great form and should run a nice race here.

Invincible De Mee 
Wed 21st Dec 2022
12:15, Hereford

Invincible De Mee is very well bred and works nicely too but he had a fright early on in his last race and we want to restore his confidence. Best watched today.

Ornate 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
17:45, Newcastle

Ornate ran another solid race last time at Southwell. He remains in good condition and as he showed two runs before when winning at Chelmsford, he still retains plenty of pace so we're hopeful of a good day with the old boy.

State Of Honor 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
15:25, Ludlow

State Of Honor showed a bit of form in bumpers in Ireland but this is a tough race today. We will learn a bit about her, but I suspect she will be best watched on this stable debut.

Tazka 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
15:00, Plumpton

Tazka was another denied a run at Lingfield yesterday. Her previous run there can be ignored and while she gets a fair bit of weight from Ozzie Man, it is hard to imagine her coping with him on these terms.

Ozzie Man 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
15:00, Plumpton

We run two in this novice handicap chase and clearly Ozzie Man has the better chance on recent form. He was off for a year before making his chase debut in October, winning that narrowly over half a mile shorter here than today, and followed up more easily at Lingfield stretching out to three miles. He still looks fairly weighted and the hat-trick is hopefully on the cards.

Le Patron    WINNER! winner
Tue 20th Dec 2022
14:30, Plumpton

Le Patron won a hurdle race in the French Provinces in May and then went close when 2nd in a much stronger 15-runner contest at Auteuil the following month after which he joined the stable. Only a 4yo, he has a big weight today but we've been happy with him and hope he can go close on debut.

Judex Lefou 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
14:20, Ludlow

Judex Lefou has everything in his favour today and is extremely well handicapped but is very in and out with his running. Could spring a surprise at a big price if on a going day.

Light Up Our Stars 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
14:13, Southwell

Light Up Our Stars made a winning start for the stable back in June but has struggled in recent runs. That said, he is rarely beaten far and at this level he could run into a place.

Ebonello 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
14:00, Plumpton

Ebonello is a gorgeous daughter of champion NH sire Presenting out of Ravello Bay, a black-type winning daughter of Supreme Leader. Ravello Bay won a bumper and novice hurdle before finishing 2nd in the Listed Mares' Novice Hurdle Final at Newbury. Ebonello was placed in two bumpers last season then won one on her return and followed that with a nice win first time over hurdles at Wincanton. She runs now against the boys where her penalty is offset by her allowance. There are some smart bumper winners and a good one off the flat too, so she'll need to improve to win again. Hopefully she will!

Walk In The Wild 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
12:55, Plumpton

We thought Walk In The Wild had an excellent chance on yesterday's abandoned Lingfield card. Unbeaten in both chases since joining us, this is a lower-grade affair and his chance is there for all to see.

Mollycoddled 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
12:45, Ludlow

Mollycoddled is by the beautifully-bred stallion Dartmouth out of a winning sister to Grand National runner-up Oscar Time. She was backed and ridden away through last winter with the idea of having her ready for the new Junior NH development hurdle races. She has done plenty and jumps well but is a true NH-bred filly that will improve for the experience.

Abingworth 
Tue 20th Dec 2022
12:25, Plumpton

Abingworth ran better than his 50/1 odds when fourth, admittedly beaten some way, at Leicester two weeks ago. He will do better when able to compete in handicaps against his own class.

Capricorn Prince    WINNER! winner
Mon 19th Dec 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Capricorn Prince has a great record around Lingfield and we had him in there the other day when the meeting was called off. He has yet to win around here, but has been placed and if he gets a good run round, he has to be a player for a place at least.

Big Bard 
Mon 19th Dec 2022
19:30, Chelmsford

Big Bard had a couple of near misses on turf in the autumn and was not disgraced first time back on all-weather at Wolverhampton. If he finds a little more, he should be thereabouts.

Holy Fire    WINNER! winner
Mon 19th Dec 2022
18:30, Chelmsford

Somehow Holy Fire has managed to get herself withdrawn twice before races recently. She is the quietest horse in the yard at home so the antics at the races have been very out of character and I don't expect to see them tonight. She has been working well at home and I expect a nice debut if everything goes to plan before the race. 

Zany Idea 
Mon 19th Dec 2022
18:00, Chelmsford

Zany Idea is only a small filly but has taken time to mature mentally and physically. We've pitched her in at a realistic level but we just hope she can run respectably and show a bit of promise for the future.

Miss Elsa 
Mon 19th Dec 2022
15:20, Kempton Park

Miss Elsa had been off for almost eight months before her recent run at Lingfield. In the circumstances a closing third was an excellent effort and she is fancied to run another big race today. Good each-way claims.

Recuerdame 
Mon 19th Dec 2022
14:20, Kempton Park

This is much tougher than the handicap Recuerdame won at Lingfield last week but he is a course and distance winner here and has been in great form so far this winter. He always needs luck in running with his run style but can't be ignored and is a big price here under his penalty with some of it negated by his good 3lb claimer.

Scylla 
Mon 19th Dec 2022
13:20, Kempton Park

Scylla is a big, backward filly we expect to do better as a 3yo. She's ready for a run and I think she'll go well.

Engrave 
Sat 17th Dec 2022
17:15, Chelmsford

Engrave ran well last time after a break when she normally needs the run. She has come out of her recent race well and is very well handicapped. Dylan Hogan is back on board and I think they will have a good each-way chance again.

Tequilamockingbird 
Sat 17th Dec 2022
15:00, Lingfield

Tequilamockingbird has won three times this year, twice over course and distance. She is only 1lb higher than for her victory last time out and she seems in cracking form at home. This is another step up in class but she should be suited to the conditions of the race better than anything else.

Capricorn Prince 
Sat 17th Dec 2022
14:25, Lingfield

Capricorn Prince has been a great servant who usually runs his race around here where he is a four-time winner. After a summer break he had a warm-up at Newbury before running a good 2nd on his return here, so it was something of a surprise when he was a well-beaten favourite last time. He's had a short break since, so hopefully he can resume his Lingfield love affair today.

Heer's Sadie 
Sat 17th Dec 2022
14:05, Chelmsford

Heer's Sadie has been disappointing since winning at Yarmouth last year but is now very well handicapped, Sam Feilden back on board and he gets on very well with her. We just need her to show some form again and hope she can run into a place.

Dirham Emirati 
Sat 17th Dec 2022
12:05, Lingfield

Dirham Emirati makes his flat-race debut for us with a high enough mark, the result of a win in a Newcastle 3yo novice early last year. He started here with a 3rd over hurdles before falling when still in contention at the final flight at Plumpton soon after. He was off the track then until last month in a novice hurdle around here when he jumped poorly and was never in contention. He may be due a break from jumping but this is a tough enough starting point back on the level.

Valorant 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
17:25, Southwell

Valorant has not been getting home in recent races at 1m. Dropping back to 7f today, we are also trying first-time blinkers in the hope they have an impact. He will need them to work as his draw, like Tom Tulliver's, is very difficult.

Tom Tulliver 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
17:25, Southwell

Tom Tulliver is our second runner in this handicap. He's been off almost four months since trailing the field around here and could well benefit from the comeback run. His chance is not helped nby a dreadful outside draw.

Junkanoo 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
17:15, Kempton Park

It was an eye-opener when Junkanoo bolted up at 28/1 first time ever on all-weather here last month. Up 4lb, he was a staying-on 2nd next time and the way he kept on suggests that up another 2lb he should not be troubled stretching out to 1m4f. We are hopeful he can regain the winning thread.

Copperknob 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
17:15, Kempton Park

Copperknob ended a brief early-summer campaign with an easy win at Brighton and we liked his chance back from a long break at Chelmsford last week. He reared at the start that day and that ended any chance and now he is probably our second string to Junkanoo. Still a 3yo, we're claiming off him to ease his task in this tough handicap.

Gerrots 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
17:15, Kempton Park

Non-runner

Ebury 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
16:55, Southwell

Ebury has been on a long losing run but ran his best race for ages last time, staying on into a close 3rd under Luke Morris. Luke is back on board tonight and we have to be hopeful Ebury can step into top spot.

Sycamore    WINNER! winner
Fri 16th Dec 2022
16:25, Southwell

Sycamore had winning form here in January but has run two stinkers since coming back after a long break. He needs to find his mojo if he is to take a hand here.

Medrara 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
15:10, Southwell

Medrara was very disappointing upped in trip at Lingfield last time and found next to nothing off the bridle. His best run to date was over this course and distance so we are hoping returning to it will bring some improvement.

Fai Fai 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
14:35, Southwell

Fai Fai is dropping down to a mark he can be competitive off now. He ran much better at Chelmsford last time and I think the drop to 5f will suit. He should take another step forward now.

Lady Ursula 
Fri 16th Dec 2022
14:00, Southwell

Lady Ursula regressed last time and I didn't like the way she raced one bit. Hence we have reached for the visor very early. She has a fair bit to prove at the moment in my opinion.

Dark Shot 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
17:05, Southwell

Non-runner

Teruntum Star 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
17:05, Southwell

Teruntum Star joins Dark Shot in this wide-open handicap. Two wins on turf in the autumn after joining us in mid-season, brought his career tally to 11 wins, but he is far less exposed on AW. His first run on such a surface for ages, two weeks ago at Newcastle, offered very little encouragement - for the moment at least.

Canzone 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
17:05, Southwell

Canzone returns after six months off following a poor effort at Thirsk. That said, it was his only run on turf in the past year and a bit and his form on all-weather around the turn of the year was much more respectable. I think you can ignore Thirsk - he is mostly an AW horse - and this is an ideal place to start off another winter campaign.

Motagally 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
16:35, Southwell

Apart from finishing fifth in the Portland Handicap at Doncaster in September, Motagally hasn't shown much sign of retaining his earlier ability. He was rated above 100 in the summer of last year in his previous stable, but needs to show much more if he is to take advantage of his slipping mark.

Kittens Dream

Lucky Beggar 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
14:33, Southwell

Although rising 13, Lucky Beggar has been doing us proud, winning at 66/1 at Nottingham and then running a creditable fourth soon after at Catterick to finish his 2022 turf campaign. Both those races were at six furlongs and I think the drop back to the minimum as he returns to AW is a positive. Hoping for another age-defying performance.

Fierce 
Thu 15th Dec 2022
14:03, Southwell

Fierce has been placed a few times already in decent company, showing ability under a variety of conditions including when third last time on heavy ground in a Newbury nursery. He is equally adept on all-weather and from the same mark of 76 against possibly weaker opposition, he is clearly the one to beat today.

Silastar 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
18:00, Kempton Park

Silastar was running well earlier in the summer, winning over a mile here in July. His form has been disappointing since then and he needs to recapture that level. It might not be easy from his wide draw dropping down to seven furlongs.

Arctician 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
18:00, Kempton Park

Artician had his first run back since his gelding operation last time and looked a bit rusty. He should be sharper for that and as he he is starting to look better handicapped, it will be no surprise to see a return to form tonight.

Brilliant Blue 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
18:00, Kempton Park

We run two horses on the way back here and Brilliant Blue has his first run since being gelded in the summer. He disappointed in four runs in a short spell before that and the hope has to be that the operation will have rekindled his enthusiasm and he does have a good draw to boost his chance.

El Jasor 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
16:30, Kempton Park

El Jasor is a big, laid-back individual. He's a good-looking horse and will be a better 3yo, however he is ready for a run now. The mile at Kempton will suit him well but his biggest weapon is his attitude as he tries his heart out. I expect him to make a nice debut.

El Pequeno Pulpo 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
16:30, Kempton Park

El Pequeno Pulpo has looked babyish on both starts so far and will be better once handicapping. A scopey and well-related colt who has his whole future in front of him.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
15:30, Kempton Park

Hul Ah Bah Loo looked to be on the way back on last start at Lingfield where his form is arguably better than here. He has slipped down the handicap however and if he can negate his wide draw on the way round then it will be no surprise to see him involved here.

Gerrots 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
15:25, Lingfield

Gerrots lost his way in the middle of the year. He seemed to be getting back on track with an improved run at Kempton last month. He has been slipping in the weights so if he can back up his last run he could be thereabouts.

Masqool 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
14:55, Lingfield

Masqool is a tough, consistent horse who has been in great form throughout the year. He needs a personal best to come out on top in this off his highest career mark, but cannot be ruled out if he gets the run of the race.

Heers Sadie 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
13:55, Lingfield

Non-runner

Danah Star 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
13:55, Lingfield

Danah Star is a tough likeable mare who is trying a small step up in trip. She has been coming down the weights and appeals as having a small each-way chance.

Justcallmepete    WINNER! winner
Wed 14th Dec 2022
12:50, Lingfield

Justcallmepete has been showing good solid form all season. He has a workable handicap mark and is dropping down in grade and trip today. With a clear run off the home turn at Lingfield, he should be staying on strongly and can be thereabouts at the finish.

Seneca Chief 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
12:50, Lingfield

Seneca Chief has a bit to prove at present particularly at the start and we're not convinced he really gets six furlongs. It's an easy six here though and he is well drawn.

Wake Up Harry 
Wed 14th Dec 2022
12:50, Lingfield

Wake Up Harry was surprisingly keen on return here last time after a lengthy absence. He's been dropped back in distance today, hopefully to help him settle better, and he should be finishing off nicely.

Catesby 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
18:45, Wolverhampton

We gave Catesby another chance to see whether he truly stays 7f and the evidence at Southwell in October was unpromising as he weakened after leading in the straight. One of two runners here for the stable, his wide draw is unlikely to help him either.

Mudlahhim 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
18:45, Wolverhampton

Mudlahhim, rated 89 at the start of the year, has been slipping down the rankings with little sign of halting the disappointing sequence. All we can do is persevere and trust he finds the spark to recapture that earlier ability. Hopefully that can start tonight.

Visibility 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
17:45, Wolverhampton

Visibility has been running consistently lately and bounced back to winning form emphatically on Friday over CD under today's apprentice. The 5lb extra should not stop him making it five wins in 25 starts in the calendar year. Some servant!

Blazer Two 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
16:45, Wolverhampton

Blazer Two was a winner at 1m4f on the turf at Leicester in July, but reverting to AW he has struggled to get involved the last couple of times at Southwell. We're trying this step up in trip and while his pedigree does not guarantee it,  he does seem to stay well so we're hopeful it will suit him.

Harbour Vision 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
15:45, Wolverhampton

Harbour Vision has been in tremendous form winning his last two and his latest success was spectacularly gained drawing right away over CD on Saturday. The 4lb penalty should not stop the hat-trick and in top amateur Fred Tett, he has the ideal partner to take advantage of his plum draw on the inside.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
15:45, Wolverhampton

Non-runner

Kitten's Dream 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
15:13, Southwell

Kitten's Dream is one of those horses in our care that seems to run in cycles, and when he hits form you have to take notice. His third over CD a week ago after some lesser efforts was his best for a while and a repetition would enable him to go very close.

Sociologist 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
15:13, Southwell

Sociologist also ran last Tuesday in a different race and although he does stay this trip, he weakened late over 12f. He had been running better on turf, notably a second at Nottingham in his previous race, and he is probably our second string here.

Ornate 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
14:13, Southwell

Ornate may not be the force of earlier days, but on occasion the veteran can show glimpses of that undoubted ability, as he did when a game winner at Chelmsford in October. He could not back that up the following week at the same track, but freshened up for today, he could make them all go again at what looks a value each-way price.

Endofastorm 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
12:43, Southwell

Endofastorm did better over a mile at Newcastle two runs back than on handicap debut over a furlong less at Wolverhampton. Now back at a mile, from a decent draw and in first-time cheek-pieces, she could challenge for a place at long odds in a tough-looking race for the grade.

Valorant 
Tue 13th Dec 2022
12:43, Southwell

You couldn't say Valorant is dropping down the handicap, seven runs on from his stable debut in April, he has hurtled down from 77 to 47 with no sign of promise - indeed his latest run was his worst. Help!

Pop Favorite 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Pop Favorite's form is nothing to write home about and neither is his draw tonight in ten. There was some promise the last time he went over this trip two runs back when he was a decent third, but he'll need to improve on that if he is to gaiin an initial success for the stable.

Broomy Law 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

We run two here and Broomy Law has by far the better of the draw. His form though has been uniformly disappointing and he will need a sudden improvement to figure today.

Duke Of Firenze 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Duke Of Firenze ran well again at Lingfield last time. He is in great condition and confidence is high.

Henley Park 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
15:20, Lingfield

Henley Park looks to have lost his way in three runs since coming back from a summer break. I think we will have to wait for him to signal a return to form and until he shows signs of that, he is probably best watched.

Stormingin 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
14:50, Lingfield

Stormingin has been a regular ride for today's apprentice and she has taken him into a couple of places recently. Last time under an even less experienced amateur, he stayed on well from the back into a close fifth and this looks a decent chance in a moderate handicap.

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner
Mon 12th Dec 2022
14:20, Lingfield

Recuerdame is a multiple all-weather winner who has run well on all starts since his return earlier this year. Can meet trouble in running but this small field gives him more options. He should be involved if things go smoothly for him.

Celestial Point 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
13:42, Lingfield

Celestial Point hasn't been beaten far the last twice and considering he was a 28/1 shot, his fifth of 16 around here in late October wasn't too bad. However it's 18 months since he got his head in front and we cannot realistically expect him to make a sudden jump back into winning form.

Heer's Sadie 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
13:42, Lingfield

Heer's Sadie ran well at Lingfield on her first try at the track. She is very well handicapped now and Sam takes off a further 7lb. He gets on very well with her and won on her last year. If she can reproduce the form from then, she would have a good each-way chance down in grade.

Ricardo Ofworthing 
Mon 12th Dec 2022
12:42, Lingfield

Ricardo Ofworthing showed promise in maidens earlier this year and is likely to find things easier in handicaps. Showed good speed here on penultimate start so should run with encouragement and is sure to come on for the run. May go better than the odds suggest, although the principals are at the top of their game.

Soldier Of Destiny 
Sun 11th Dec 2022
14:58, Southwell

Soldier Of Destiny ran 2nd to the smart Gentlemansgame in his Irish point and filled a similat position in a bumper. After a lack-lustre start over hurdles he proved a revelation over fences and won decent novice handicaps at Ffos Las and Haydock. He was an excellent fifth in the Old Roan on his return but fell next time. Back over hurdles here, we're looking for a confidence boosting run and hopefully a win.

Commander Of Ten

Janworth 
Sun 11th Dec 2022
13:23, Southwell

Janworth is a daughter of Norse Dancer and is a sister to our bumper/novice hurdle winner Bucko's Boy. Janworth goes well at home and should be able to win a bumper before progressing over hurdles. but she will undoubtedly improve for the experience of her racecourse debut today.

Amidnightstar 
Sun 11th Dec 2022
13:23, Southwell

Amidnightstar was 2nd in a mares' bumper in August. It might be tough to be competitive against male opponents this time.

Jessie Lightfoot 
Sun 11th Dec 2022
12:23, Southwell

Jessie Lightfoot makes his stable debut after nine months off the track. A winner at Market Rasen in February, we are looking forward to seeing her ack in action today.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Sat 10th Dec 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

Harbour Vision has been very consistent of late and his latest win continues to edge up his rating. He has a difficult draw but in-form horses can often find a way throiugh. I'm hopeful he will.

Theotherside 
Sat 10th Dec 2022
17:50, Wolverhampton

Theotherside ran a couple of second places early in the year He returned below par but after two months, his run last week was a better effort. Not a totally forfon hope. 

Abbey Heights 
Sat 10th Dec 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Abbey Heights won a similar race over course and distance last time and is still improving. This is perhaps a slightly deeper contest than that but he should still be competitive.

Ahlawi 
Sat 10th Dec 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Ahlawi won for the first time for us in his latest race here since joining earlier in the year. He is clearly the better of our two candidates. If he can get away alertly from his middle draw he could follow up.

Amber Dew 
Sat 10th Dec 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Amber Dew is a worthy back-up to Ahlawi and certainly on his latest run when a strong finishing second it is easy to think he is running into form. I think we should back the pair singly and link them in a forecast.

American Rose    WINNER! winner
Sat 10th Dec 2022
16:20, Wolverhampton

American Rose is a nice filly that seems to be going the right way. We are experimenting with the drop back to 5f and she goes from a good draw, It is difficult to assess this opposition, but if she has luck in running she can be worth a small each-way bet.

Bungle Bay 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
19:45, Southwell

Bungle Boy has been knocking on the door and dropping down the weights. He has ability and seems well so should be thereabouts. Each-way chance.

Light Up Our Stars 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
19:15, Southwell

Light Up Our Stars is likely to be our number one here. Rated 76 in a 0-75. he is a class act here and has been fairly consistent since winning on stable debut at Epsom in June. Big chance.

Gypsy Whisper 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
19:15, Southwell

Gypsy Whisper was kept busy on turf through the year, managing a win at Doncaster. She returned to all-weather at Newcatle and will need to improve on that effort to match her turf exploits.

Sycamore 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
18:45, Southwell

Sycamore won over course and distance in January and probably needed his return after nine months off here last month over 7f. Should be fitter today but may need a run or two to get into full swing.

Coast 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
16:15, Southwell

Coast had a couple of runs to get back in the swim after a summer break, but then she struck form last time on the same track. Her form at Southwell in the past was pretty ordinary but she goes there in good shape and it would not be a shock if she did follow up.

Amidnightstar 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
15:45, Bangor

Amidnightstar made a promising start when a good second on bumper debut at Stratford in August and seems to have come on for that at home. It's only a small field but there are some well-bred newcomers and this could turn out to be a decent race. Each-way chance.

Janworth 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
15:45, Bangor

Janworth is by Norse Dancer from a smart jumps female family and is half-sister to our smart performer Bucko's Boy. She goes well at home and should be able to win a bumper before going hurdling but she will undoubtedly improve for the racecourse experience today.

Tanglewood Tales 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
15:05, Wolverhampton

Tanglewood Tales has been struggling to get home over a mile and a half. We're dropping him back in trip today but he will need to make a big improvement on four days ago's effort to figure.

Non-runner

Soldier Of Destiny 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
14:35, Bangor

This Presenting gelding is half-brother to a couple of useful winners. Second in a bumper, Soldier Of Destiny made a lack-lustre start over hurdles but proved a revelation over fences. Winner of handicaps at Ffos Las and Haydock he ran well when 5th on comeback in the Grade 2 Old Roan Chase at Aintree. We're giving him the chance of a confidence boost back over hurdles, but this is tough enough. 

Visibility    WINNER! winner
Fri 9th Dec 2022
14:30, Wolverhampton

Visibility has a good draw and a  nice light weight. A course and distance winner not long ago, he has a solid each-way chance on his best form.

Eva's Oskar    WINNER! winner
Fri 9th Dec 2022
14:25, Cheltenham

Eva's Oskar appears to be in the same sort of form as when she was a good second in a similar race at the last meeting here. We are hoping for another big run but we could have done with softer ground.

Nassalam 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
14:25, Cheltenham

Non-runner

Legends Ryde 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
13:50, Cheltenham

The very well-connected Legends Ryde won a bumper and was 2nd in another at Cheltenham before winning a novice hurdle. Covid then interrupted her progression before she came back later to win two novice chases. Then she won three GBB races and was second in a valuable race at Ascot. After two nice third places in strong company she is now back in a handicap where she should find life easier. She would prefer softer ground though.

Madera Mist 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
13:50, Cheltenham

Madera Mist is hard to catch right but when she is on song she is capable. She loves it round here and can sometimes over-achieve. That said, it is a competitive race so we are feeling she has a small each-way claim.

Commander Of Ten 
Fri 9th Dec 2022
12:40, Cheltenham

Commander Of Ten ran okay when third here back in November but hated conditions when disappointing in very soft ground at Lingfield last time. He's back on a better surface here but a long way out of his depth.

Copperknob 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Copperknob is a Churchill colt who built on the promise of his Goodwood third in early June by easily landing the odds at Brighton a few days later. Off the track since, he is up 6lb but remains a horse with a bright future in handicaps and he should go well here tonight.

Far Horizon    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Dec 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Far Horizon won well at Lingfield last time, doing his best work at the finish to get up close home. The step up to 1m2f should be a plus for him. The mark of 71 looks fair and we have a good claimer taking off 5lb, which is also a help. It doesn't look a deep contest and he should have every chance.

Tawalla 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
18:30, Chelmsford

Tawalla picked up an injury in the summer otherwise we would have seen him much earlier than this. He has done plenty of work and knows his job but as always with mine he will improve for the run.

Fierce 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
18:00, Chelmsford

Fierce has the most experience of these maidens and after two placed efforts in novices and a good third in a heavy-ground Newbury nursery in October, he will have his chance again today. He could be vulnerable to a unexposed improver, but it will take a decent animal to beat him.

Hill Station 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
17:00, Chelmsford

Hill Station had been hurdling before making a return to the flat when a staying on 3rd over 1m4f at Lingfield last week. He is still a maiden under both codes but this second division of this amateur handicap gives him a good opportunity to open his account.

Engrave    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Dec 2022
16:30, Chelmsford

Engrave has had a break after two below-par runs when she was found to be unwell. She is now back to form and running in this grade for the first time in a long while. Unfortunately our usual amateur Ross Birkett who has won on her previously is banned so Simon Walker takes the reins. The only negative is that she usually needs a run after a break but hopefully she will be thereabouts even if only half-fit.

Stormingin 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
16:30, Chelmsford

Stormingin had a busy time at the beginning of the year on all-weather, coming close to a win on a couple of occasions. He returns after eight months off in this amateurs' handicap and as he was claimer-ridden in all those starts, he looks a suitable partner for his inexperienced rider. Place chance.

Airtothethrone    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Dec 2022
15:08, Taunton

Airtothethrone showed promise on jumps debut when second at Ffos Las in October last year but then was off the track for almost a year. After an encouraging comeback run, he stepped up on that first time over fences and on handicap debut last time at Ludlow, finishing third. This looks an excellent opportunity for him to gain that all-important first win.

Invincible De Mee 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
13:35, Taunton

Invincible De Mee was picked up from France in the summer after running his best race in seven when third in an AQPS bumper on a minor track. This is a pretty hot place to start him off and we will be looking for encouragement for the future from this son of Derby winner Authorized.

Let It Shine 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
13:35, Taunton

Let It Shine ran okay at Huntingdon last time but neither the two bumper runs nor one novice hurdle suggest he will be anywhere near good enough to be competitive here. Ground and track should be fine but he will need to take a massive step forward to figure.

Bells Of Rutland 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
13:00, Taunton

Bells Of Rutland has been most disappointing on both starts since coming back from his summer break. We need to see him turn the corner in a major way before holding out much hope of imminent success.

Commander Of Ten 
Thu 8th Dec 2022
12:42, Newcastle

Non-runner

Junkanoo 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

The market clearly did not know what to expect of Junkanoo on his all-weather debut here three weeks ago and to be honest neither did we. He had been running without much spark having returned in the summer following almost two years' absence. He bolted up in that race, starting 28/1 and if that wasn't a fluke, which we doubt, he must have a big chance of a follow up off only 4lb higher.

He's A Latchico 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

Non-runner

Colombidea    WINNER! winner
Wed 7th Dec 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Colombidea finds herself in a weak race but she has to run 6lb wrong as she carries a penalty for last week's win while her mark was unchanged yesterday. She has run well previously at the track and the step back up to a mile will help her. She can go well despite the big weight.

Evening Story 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
16:55, Kempton Park

Evening Story took a step forward on her second start and should be suited by the more galloping test at Kempton. She will get further in time and another step forward here would make her competitive, judged on what the others have shown to date although most are open to improvement too.

Holy Fire 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
16:55, Kempton Park

Holy Fire is a nice filly who worked well with my runner yesterday that made eye-catching late headway at Southwell. Obviously this is her first day at school so we expect plenty of improvement to come from today's debut.

Present Value 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
15:35, Leicester

Present Value is by Gold Well and is a half-brother to World Hurdle winner Paisley Park. He made a winning debut for us, taking this race last year off this mark. He didn't manage to reproduce that form in three subsequent outings but back here and fresh, we're hoping he can repeat the winning performance from 2021.

Cilaos Glace 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
15:35, Leicester

Cilaos Glace has had his share of issues over the years and sadly as a result he has never achieved the heights his ability deserved. He still loves his work and schooling so there is no reason to be negative about today but he did pull up first time at Lingfield. He has been in cracking form on the gallops and I just hope he retains the enthusiasm on the racecourse that he shows at home.

Robbie Dazzler 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
15:25, Hexham

Robbie Dazzler has been very consistent in his last two runs, stays very well and is a real battler. He has form over course and distance which gives him a solid chance here. The ground will probably be as soft as he has been on but I don't see any issues there.

Roman Tempest 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
15:10, Lingfield

Roman Tempest showed a bit more on handicap debut and the longer trip today looks likely to help. This is competitive enough for the level but he should take another step forward and it will be no surprise to see him improve from his last time fifth place and go very close.

Vanity Affair 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
14:25, Leicester

Vanity Affair makes his debut over hurdles today. He loves cut in the ground and stays 12f on the flat so this should be a good starting point. He has schooled well at home.

Abingworth 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
14:25, Leicester

Abingworth was second in the first of three bumpers last season. He was never in contention on hurdles debut at Lingfield recently but was staying on pleasingly at the finish and could improve a fair bit on that today.

Braveheart 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
13:50, Leicester

Braveheart is is by Westerner, sire of many Grade 1 winners from a prolific female family.He finished 2nd in a bumper last season and then 2nd too on hurdles debut, but didn't have much luck thereafter. I'd like to think he can progress over fences this season. He ran well enough when 3rd on seasonal debut but he stepped up a gear on that, jumping fluently to win impressively at Exeter. Disappointing when never in a rhythm at Ludlow last time, now he has his winning jockey back, a stiffer track and smaller field, another win awaits if he can reproduce the Exeter performance. 

Scamallach Liath 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
13:15, Leicester

Scamallach Liath (Grey Clouds in Gaelic) ran well on debut for us at Plumpton when he was green throughout and also tended to jump to the right, hence he is running this way round today. His jumping was good if a little deliberate but overall it was a pleasing Rules debut and he stayed on well having been outpaced at the end of the back straight. He should come on for that.

Mystic Man 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
13:15, Leicester

Mystic Man also runs in the 2m4f novice hurdle. He started for us over a wholly inadequate (in hindsight) two miles at Southwell, because he had been a gassy, keen horse and we were worried he could over-race. As it was my team, principally Lewis Saunders, had done such a good job with him at home he was very chilled and all he did was stay on having been flat out for the majority of the race. He jumps well and I'm hoping for an improved run today but he may fare better once he's handicapped.  

Aggagio    WINNER! winner
Wed 7th Dec 2022
12:10, Leicester

After a great summer, principally around Goodwood, Aggagio's flat rating rose to 87, and he looked well treated off his108 jumps mark having won twice in novice handicap hurdles last season. We expected a big run on his return at Fontwell last month but he was far too free. Maybe with the outing behind him he can run a more measured race and take advantage of his mark.    

La Rav 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
11:50, Lingfield

La Rav finally put it all together under a patient ride from his inexperienced apprentice last time after a contrastingly injudicious ride the time before. He overcame a poor draw then  - nothing changed there then! - and over a furlong less, it is vital they get a clear run round. He is effectively 5lb well in as that was an apprentice race and hopefully he has the finishing speed to overcome the shorter trip.

Dutugamunu 
Wed 7th Dec 2022
11:20, Lingfield

Dutugamunu always runs well around Lingfield where he is a dual CD winner. He's 8lb lower than for his last win and with cheek-pieces back on he has to have an each-way shout.

Sociologist 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
20:20, Southwell

Sociologist hasn't competed of late but he's a horse that's equally adept on turf and AW. He has been apprentice-ridden for most of the year, and now we have professional handling, that could make a difference.

Kitten's Dream 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
19:50, Southwell

Kitten's Dream was running well through the second half of the year until a couple of lesser performances of late. He's a horse though that can always pop up at a price and tonight may be no exception, hopefully!

Dark Shot 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
18:20, Southwell

Dark Shot had his first run (after 102 elsewhere!) at Wolverhampton last week and it showed. The previous time he won over this CD and certainly knows his way around. You can never rule the old boy out!

Royal Razzmatazz 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
17:20, Southwell

Royal Razzmatazz looks to be a nice 2yo who is ready for a run. Like all of mine he will improve for his debut but a good draw helps his chances of a decent performance today.

Theotherside 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
16:50, Southwell

Theotherside had a break before his latest run at York. While he ran moderately there it was a competitive, big field. He has yet to win on all-weather but his two best runs on it came on the new surface here early in the year when he was twice second. He will be fitter now and has a chance breaking that duck. 

Vision Clear 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
15:35, Fontwell Park

Vision Clear has been rated much higher but he needs to recover from a couple of falls in his last two runs over jumps, both in sellers. The first came too early in the race to make a judgment but last time at Taunton he was still in with a shout when coming down at the last flight. With a safe, clear round he could have an each-way chance in this trappy low-grade handicap.

Animal 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
15:25, Uttoxeter

Animal was consistent last season and ran much better than his finishing position suggests on his comeback run at Bangor. He is fitter now and looks nicely weighted in the middle of this ordinary handicap. Good each-way chance.

Royal Lake 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
15:25, Uttoxeter

Royal Lake slipped on landing early in his chasing debut at Exeter and Johnny allowed him to jump one more fence before wisely pulling him up. He has schooled twice since, slightly lacking in confidence the first time but good last week. We always thought he would be a better chaser, so let's hope he has a nice clear round today and we can build on that in the future.

Black Gerry 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
14:05, Fontwell Park

Black Gerry has won both his starts this season and did well to beat a decent performer in Harry Redknapp's Bowtogreatness (Ben Pauling) at Exeter last time. Up 7lb for that, he will need to have improved a bit more to complete the hat-trick. Hopefully he has!

Noplacetobe 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
13:55, Uttoxeter

Noplacetobe is a point winner who made a decent start under Rules when third at Worcester but then disappointed at Hexham where perhaps the track didn't suit. She's back to a flatter circuit today and on first run in a handicap off what should be a nice mark for her. Hopefully the step up in trip will be a plus as well.

Spitfire Girl    WINNER! winner
Tue 6th Dec 2022
13:55, Uttoxeter

Spitfire Girl is by all-conquering Walk In The Park out of a black-type winning mare who is herself very well connected. Spitfire Girl was 2nd in three bumpers and looks like she has a future. She was pretty green on seasonal/hurdling debut and after a good fourth next time, found the company a little too competitive. The positive from that is she starts handicapping off a nice mark and shouldn't be too far away.

Prison Break 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
13:35, Fontwell Park

Prison Break had a solid comeback run at Hereford after a summer's break and ought to have improved for that. Conditions today are suitable and we feel he has a strong each-way claim.

Dusky Days 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
13:35, Fontwell Park

Dusky Days is a full-brother to good stayer Fontsanta and is from a strong female family. He won a bumper on debut and was then 4th in a Listed bumper at Ascot. He ended last season with two seconds over hurdles and ran to a similar level when third on seasonal debut. However, he disappointed on his handicap debut when I think he sulked in a first-time tongue-tie. With that left off and down in class he should get back on track with a good run here.

Aviles 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
12:35, Fontwell Park

Aviles tried to make all on stable debut here three weeks ago, but got tired and ended up a well-beaten 2nd. If anything, this is a stronger race and he may struggle to beat a couple of these.

Pilbara 
Tue 6th Dec 2022
11:55, Uttoxeter

Pilbara has had his share of issues and we are switching back to hurdles and over further in the hope of getting him back on track. Really wanting to see his running on and getting his confidence back. Probably best watched.

Tanglewood Tales 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
19:50, Wolverhampton

Tanglewood Tales turns out again quickly after running unplaced here last Tuesday following a near six-month break. He is bred to be useful but so far hasn't really lived up to his pedigree.

Six O' Hearts 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
16:20, Wolverhampton

Six O'Hearts has been relatively lightly-raced so far but he has been improving with experience and was a good third around here last time. He doesn't have the best of the draw but if he gets a clearer run than last time, he ought to pick up a place at least.

Waikiki Waves 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
15:25, Lingfield

Waikiki Waves had seemed to be running without too much enthusiasm but a return to Lingfield, where he usually runs well, brought a revival with a close second last time. A repetition of that run would possibly be good enough. Each-way chances.

Mark of Gold    WINNER! winner
Mon 5th Dec 2022
14:55, Lingfield

Mark Of Gold won nicely on his seasonal comeback at Plumpton and while he didn't get in the money in the Greatwood at Cheltenham, he beat as many as beat him. Now back in his comfort zone and only 2lb higher than at Plumpton. Big weight but big chance.

Icare Grandchamp 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
13:55, Lingfield

Icare Grandchamp was placed in the second of his two runs in France but has disappointed in both appearances since coming over. He will need to return to the French form to figure in this.

Albert Van Ornum 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
13:25, Lingfield

Albert Van Ornum has been a big disappointment with two pulled ups and a remote fourth in a selling hurdle last time. We are trying him in a novice handicap chase and the fact he is as short as 5/1 indicates the quality on show. He will need to re-discover some enthusiasm to make an impact over fences.

Parikarma 
Mon 5th Dec 2022
12:55, Lingfield

Parikarma makes her hurdles debut as a rising six-year-old with 42 runs to her name and three wins. Two of them have come in three outings since we bought her cheaply in the summer. Although she runs off modest marks she could be the type of tough filly to make an impact jumping. This looks very demanding for a starter but we will be interested to see how she shapes today.

Queens Gamble 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
15:25, Huntingdon

Non-runner

Do Your Job 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
14:55, Huntingdon

Do Your Job ended last season on a high note with two wins, culminating with an impressive performance at Ayr. He has come up a little short in two strong handicaps at Aintree this autumn but they will have brought him to full fitness. Whether he can match these on WFA terms is questionable, but he may well outrun the odds.

Privatory 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
14:20, Huntingdon

French import Privatory won on his career debut in a 16-runner 3yo hurdle at Cagnes-sur-Mer over the corresponding weekend last year and then switched to us, Privatory landed the odds in a five-runner race below the usual standard at Sandown in March. He has not built on that form in three runs since, including on his return at Plumpton when he finished well behind. This is something of a retrieval mission and he needs to show more to figure here. May be better for the run. 

Counteract    WINNER! winner
Sun 4th Dec 2022
13:45, Huntingdon

Counteract is a burly type of horse who would have needed his last two runs, with the latest over an inadequate trip. Acts on good ground and three miles should suit him. He is back down on a reasonable mark but the race looks very competitive. I am expecting a much better run today though.

Git Maker 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
13:35, Kelso

Git Maker is a son of top sire Saddler Maker from a high-class French female family. He was progressive in Irish point-to-points, winning on his final start. Upon joining us he had a great first season over hurdles, winning three of his four starts. The final win came at Newcastle under a double penalty which completed a  clean sweep of winners at every NH track in the UK for Jamie Snowden Racing. A promising 2nd on seasonal return, he has improved for that and jumped great when schooled over fences at home in the week. He should appreciate the step up in trip and as long as the ground is soft enough, he should run a big race.

Hansard    WINNER! winner
Sun 4th Dec 2022
13:15, Huntingdon

Hansard was bought out of Charles O'Brien's yard after he won a bumper at Ballinrobe in the spring. Mrs Grimley, the filly that chased him over the line that day, hasn't let the form down with two good placed efforts over hurdles for Ben Pauling recently. He jumps well and we're hoping for a prominent start to hurdling.

Herecomesfreddie 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
13:15, Huntingdon

Herecomesfreddie has had a couple of runs over hurdles and in neither did he do anything to suggest he is capable of winning a race of this description. One for handicaps later on probably.

Rhebus Road 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
12:45, Huntingdon

Rhebus Road ran well first time out at Fakenham finishing second to the vastly-improved Sophosc. It's well documented that he takes a lot of work to get fit, so he was always going to improve for the outing. We then ran him back here at Huntingdon, dropping to 2m and he was readily out-sprinted by the winner. Reverting to the longer trip again he has to have each-way claims.

Spirit D'Aunou 
Sun 4th Dec 2022
12:15, Huntingdon

Spirit D'Aunou made a promising start to jumping when a close second at Kempton two weeks ago. This French-bred never ran on the flat and will have learnt a great deal from that outing. Hope he can go one better.

Pirate King 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
19:20, Wolverhampton

Pirate King ran a great race last time out after a long break. He should like this track although the only time he has raced here before he disappointed. He had been on the go for a long time then, though, and I think he was in need of a break. He seems in great form at home and we have a seriously good jockey on board. Hopeful.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
14:40, Aintree

Kiltealy Briggs is out of a half-sister to Grand National winner Ballabriggs. After finishing 2nd in his bumper on debut, he won two novice hurdles and was 3rd in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham. He excelled when we sent him novice chasing, winning two and placed twice in Graded events. He exceeded those achievements when winning a 50k added race at Market Rasen nicely on his return this autumn. He's up 3lb for that and on a career high today but he should run his race again. Excellent chance.  

In The Air 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
14:20, Sandown

In The Air failed to get very far on his return to action this season but did rather better at Ascot next time. He probably needs to improve a fair bit on that to be competitive here and may need some more time before returning to his best.

Bells Of Peterboro 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
14:12, Chepstow

Bells Of Peterborough has been running well this season, and was a good second last time at Uttoxeter. He loves Chepstow, where he has won twice previously, and everything should suit him today. This is a highly competitive race, but I think he has solid each-way claims.

Lebowski 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
13:58, Wetherby

Lebowski won his two novice events well last season before disappointing in two better races, although he did burst a blood vessel when looking to run a big race at Sandown. If over his problems, he looks to be off a decent mark and could be well in here if he is. As to the ground, it's the softer the better for him and the trip of 2m is ideal.

Dalamoi 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
13:02, Chepstow

Dalamoi appears to have improved at home since his very pleasing win on chasing debut at Kempton. Although up 8lb for the win, this looks a good opportunity to follow up that great start to his career over fences.

Obsessedwithyou 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
12:55, Aintree

Obsessedwithyou is a daughter of Bathyrhon (by Monsun), sire of a couple of jumping Stakes winners out of a winning Sleeping Car mare. She is full-sister to Calipsa who won a hurdle on racecourse debut by 10 lengths. This filly almost matched that, winning one of the new Junior NH Development races by just short of that at Wetherby in October on her debut. She is a smart filly with an awful amount of class. This is a giant step up in grade and she has so little experience, but then she might be very good! 

Authorised Speed 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
12:00, Sandown

Authorised Speed was fifth in the Festival Bumper at Cheltenham, but first of the home team over the line. He was most impressive on hurdles debut at Lingfield. This looks a good opportunity to get some more hurdling experience and hopefully gain another win.

Regarde 
Sat 3rd Dec 2022
11:40, Wetherby

Regarde is by Kapgarde out of a half-sister to a couple of winners in France and to the dam of top-class hurdler The New One. Placed in 4yo Irish points he won this spring as a 5yo. He is a strapping individual who did okay on hurdling debut when fourth at Carlisle. He got tired on the deep ground there and I suspect he needed the race more than I thought he would. We've done plenty with him since and he should be sharper this time around. The addition of a tongue-tie should help him too, so he should show improvement here today.

Poet 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
19:15, Newcastle

Poet has struggled all year at our two home tracks though mainly at Wolverhampton, and this will be a new experience. The straight course here could be to his liking and we'll be noting how he takes to it - or not!

Teruntum Star 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
18:45, Newcastle

Teruntum Star won his first two races for us on turf in September and October but found the hat-trick attempt beyond him at Pontefract. He hasn't figured in his runs on all-weather earlier in his career but he has experience of similar surfaces at home and there seems no reason why he should not be effective here. Might just need a look first.

Captain's Bar 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
18:15, Newcastle

We bought Captain's Bar in July soon after his win in a seller for Richard Hannon and he had a break before making a start for us at Southwell last month. He might take a while to get up to speed and will probably improve for the run today.

Fine Wine    WINNER! winner
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
17:45, Newcastle

Starting in late January off 71, Fine Wine won four races between all-weather and turf by the first week in June when we decided to give him a break. He resumed off 95 last month at Southwell and won impressively, so while he is 4lb higher again, it's hard to rule him out today. Value each-way.

Motagally 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
17:45, Newcastle

While Fine Wine has been going up the ratings, Motagally has been going in the other direction albeit while running in high-class handicap company. I'm sure there will be races to be won with him in the future, but his price of 100/1 suggests probably not today.

Silver In Disguise 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
15:10, Exeter

Silver In Disguise has conditions in his favour for the first time since his win over 3m6f at Chepstow last season. He will enjoy every yard of this slightly longer trip on this galloping track and he will love the ground too. Each-way claims.

Gypsy Whisper 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
15:03, Newcastle

Gypsy Whisper has been mainly occupied on turf - a winner at Doncaster in the summer -  but has been a little out of form since. He turns to all-weather for the first time since early in the year, and the straight mile often favours horses with high draws - he is in 11. Hoping he can start to show something as it's a long time till he can run again on turf.

Valorant 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
15:03, Newcastle

Valorant is our second runner in this mile handicap. Since joining from the Charltons he has shown nothing for us while dropping a stone and a half in his rating. Sure to be a massive price once again and we have to hope he will recapture some of his old form before too long.

Darebin 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
14:55, Sandown

Darebin has plenty of experience around here but while he has won three times at Sandown it's been almost four years since that last victory. Now in the veteran stage, his mark is lower this year and he has had a couple of runs. Always likely to be in contention around here, but possibly slightly on the downgrade.

High Up In The Air 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
14:55, Sandown

High Up In The Air won a couple of novice handicap chases here and at Fontwell in February 2021 but has appeared only sporadically since. Off for ten months before his recent pulled-up effort at Ascot, he may still need a little while to get back in the swim.

Park This One 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
14:20, Sandown

Park This One is by Walk In The Park from a high-class female family. He arrived with us after winning an English point-to-point and following a debut second under Rules, he progressed to win a bumper impressively at Exeter. He won on hurdles debut at Uttoxeter and has improved at home again since then. This move into Graded company is a big step up and he'll need to improve but he jumps and stays well and is as tough as they come. He always gives himself a chance so he's no forlorn hope!

Trevada 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
13:25, Exeter

Trevada is a difficult horse to place off his mark. We're going up a little further in trip in the hope that helps and he also has a first-time tongue-tie. Even so, I can't see him beating Henry Daly's horse on these terms.

Kansas Du Berlais 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
13:10, Sandown

Kansas Du Berlais was a close fourth when favourite for a Listed 3yo hurdle on debut at Auteuil. So far the form of the trio that finished ahead of him has not been spectacular but his pedigree is. By Martaline out of a well-connected mare by Poliglote, he has shaped well here and his experience will make him hard to beat today.

Isle Of Aron 
Fri 2nd Dec 2022
12:50, Exeter

If Isle Of Aron can put his most recent disappointing chase run behind him, he ought to have a massive chance here. He has been in good form at home and we go there today with a degree of optimism.

Seasett 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
17:30, Chelmsford

Seasett ran much better last time out and I think the all-weather will really suit him and I also believe Chelmsford will work for him too. A good draw was key as he could be keen on his first time over 10 furlongs but it gives him every chance to settle. With my horses flying at present, he could go well.

Colonial Empire 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
15:17, Leicester

Colonial Empire has been improving with his racing and after two good second places must be getting close to a win. We could have done without the 4lb rise for the near miss at Uttoxeter, but that race showed he has resilience and that will stand him in good stead today.

Adamhill 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
13:47, Leicester

Adamhill is a long way behind these on anything he's shown to date. Best watched today.

Galop Du Bosc 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
13:25, Wincanton

Galop Du Bosc built on some easy wins in summer points with an impressive win at Chepstow on his return to racing under Rules. He has been beaten a fair way in both starts since but is fairly handicapped and can be a factor in the finish here.

Faitque De Lisle 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
13:17, Leicester

Faitque De Lisle won nicely at Ffos Las in October before pulling up on very soft ground at Newcastle. Up only 4lb for the win, he will handle today's much quicker surface and in this small field has to be the one to beat.

Kotmask 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
12:47, Leicester

Kotmask made a great start in juvenile hurdles last season on arrival from France, winning twice, once either side of the New Year. He found it harder going in handicaps and when returning at Ascot recently, weakened on the run-in after looking a threat turning for home. Should be straighter now and could resume his winning ways.

Police Academy 
Thu 1st Dec 2022
12:15, Leicester

Police Academy won an Irish point before joining us and ran with credit when fifth on her Rules debut at Chepstow in October. She tends to be keen and gassy and Johnny gave her a lovely ride, dropping her out last, settling her, creeping into the race and finishing strongly. She jumps her hurdles very fast and over the extra half-mile today we have to think she has a good each-way chance.

Purple Ribbon 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
19:50, Kempton Park

Purple Ribbon is talented but extremely fragile. She got too far behind last time when running on well from the back of the field. This is a massive step up in grade for her but I don't think she's far off stakes class so it's worth a shot. She will love the track.

Arctician 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
19:20, Kempton Park

This is the first run for Artician since his gelding operation, coinciding with his starting to get better handicapped. He has plenty of ability and is sure to find his races though this looks tough enough. It would not be a complete surprise to see him involved if all goes well on the way round.

Recuerdame 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
17:50, Kempton Park

Recuerdame has run well on all starts since returning from a break and we think he is sure to find one of these soon. Again drawn wide, though that is not necessarily against him given his run style, but he does need everything to fall right for him.

Thomas Macdonagh 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
15:37, Haydock

Having been placed in a couple of bumpers, Thomas Macdonagh has won three races over hurdles and a novice chase. Unfortunately last season was a bit frustrating as he didn't take to the Grand National fences in the Grand Sefton and it took hom a while to get his confidence back. Ultimately we didn't have his beloved heavy ground on many occasions but he has shown he can win off his current handicap mark. Back over hurdles here on his seasonal return, he is bound to improve for the run, and Will takes off a valuable 10lb so he's not without a small chance, but with now only four runners, the favourite will be tough to beat and each-way betting is ruled out.

Duke Of Firenze 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
15:25, Lingfield

Duke Of Firenze ran really well last time at Wolverhampton, beaten only three lengths in fourth. The old boy is in great condition at home, has a good draw and we are hopeful of a big run with expectations of going very close.

London 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
14:55, Lingfield

London has shown some nice form but she needs to take a big step forward to win this. Small each-way claims if she bounces back from her disappointing first run at Wolverhampton following a break.

Hill Station 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
14:55, Lingfield

Hill Station has been hurdling of late and while it has seemed he has not been getting home too well, he would have won at Newton Abbot in the summer bar a fall at the last flight when well in command. He had his four flat runs before that jumping spell and he has certainly learnt plenty from that. Could be dangerous off that existing mark and we like him for an each-way shout today.

Via Serendipity    WINNER! winner
Wed 30th Nov 2022
14:25, Lingfield

Via Serendipity was incredibly unlucky last time out when travelling much the best before getting stopped badly in his run. With a clear run that day he would have been in the first three and his price would have been a fraction of what it is. Ten furlongs around Lingfield suits and he can run a decent race.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Wed 30th Nov 2022
11:25, Lingfield

Hul Ah Bah Loo is beginning to get better handicapped and ran well enough on penultimate start which was his return from a break. He is arguably better over a mile, but not without hope here if things fall right for him.

Tanglewood Tales 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

Tanglewood Tales was out of form after joining us early in the year and has a had a break over the summer. He resumes from an awful draw in a competitive race and is probably best watched.

Ebury 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
18:20, Wolverhampton

It was pleasing that Ebury finally showed a glimpse of his latent ability, staying on well into third last night. If he is able to turn out again he will make them all go even from his poor draw.

Broomy Law 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
18:20, Wolverhampton

If Ebury eats up and trots up sound after last night's improved run, he will probably take his chance again but Broomy Law has the better of the draw. That said, Broomy Law has been struggling since returning from his break and needs to show more.

Light Up Our Stars 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
17:50, Wolverhampton

Light Up Our Stars won four times between spring and early summer and has been knocking on the door just behind the leaders in recent runs. He's in a tough heat but his inside draw should help Jimmy Sullivan get him good track position. Can outrun his odds.

Landlordtothestars 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Landlordtothestars is a big strong lad who has been gelded since his last run. The wide draw is no help and as a result he will do well to run into midfield. One for handicaps in the future.

Coast    WINNER! winner
Tue 29th Nov 2022
15:15, Wolverhampton

A winner over C/D in early July, Coast came back after a summer break two weeks ago, running better second time three days after the return. She gts an experienced rider for this amateurs' handicap and could make an impact coming home.

Capricorn Prince 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
14:50, Lingfield

Capricorn Prince is ultra-consistent and versatile as to trip from 1m4f up. He shows he stays this 2m with a fine second last time and is the one they all have to beat on a track he loves.

Tequilamockingbird    WINNER! winner
Tue 29th Nov 2022
14:20, Lingfield

Tequilamockingbird has had a good year winning twice. I think she is best over 10 furlongs off a decent pace and her best performance this year was over course and distance.Last time out they went far too steady for her and she couldn't get into the race from out the back. She is more than capable of winning off her current mark and can go well.

Wake Up Harry 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
14:20, Lingfield

Wake Up Harry was a maiden winner here at a mile but never held it together in handicaps after that. Returns from injury now and the break has done him good. He has plenty of ability and is sure to come on for the run.

Miss Elsa 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
13:50, Lingfield

Miss Elsa has been off for a while and may just need the run but should still go okay off this handicap mark. She likes Lingfield, having won three times over course and distance.

Cafe Milano 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
13:20, Lingfield

Cafe Milano has beeen off the track for some time and is still a maiden. He often threatens to take part and goes well in the mornings so may surprise one day, but he is hard to recommend here.

Henley Park 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
13:20, Lingfield

Henley Park won well here in January but was less impressive in two return trips and was even more disappointing switched to the turf at Brighton last time. He is well enough handicapped and ideally drawn to stage a revival..

La Rav    WINNER! winner
Tue 29th Nov 2022
11:40, Lingfield

La Rav ran away with his rider last time, rushing up after missing the break and not getting home. He needs holding up and hopefully the kid who is on for the first time now, can do that and bring him for a late challenge. He's well handicapped if we can get it right.

Heer's Sadie 
Tue 29th Nov 2022
11:40, Lingfield

Heer's Sadie has been disappointing since gaining her only career win at Yarmouth almost 16 months ago when Sam Feilden had the mount. He's ridden her plenty of times since, but four different jockeys have been on since their last time together. We go to Lingfield for the first time over 1m and hopefully the track will suit. She is very well handicapped now but needs to find that old form again.

Ebury 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
20:25, Wolverhampton

Two more chances here. Ebury was rated in the mid-90's in his days with Martin Meade and has slipped gradually down the rankings until he's firmly in 0-55 class. He's been thereabouts quite often but hasn't managed to find that kick to win a race. Maybe the best draw and Luke Morris could do something about that tonight but we won't be holding our breath.

Gharbeyih 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
20:25, Wolverhampton

Our second runner here Gharbeyih ran in three novice events, all at Doncaster, earlier in the summer. There was some promise from her then and her mark of 52 looks fair. She hasn't run for five months, and we will be looking to see whether she has potential for the all-weather. Interesting.

Colombidea    WINNER! winner
Mon 28th Nov 2022
19:55, Wolverhampton

Colombidea bumped into a useful horse last time out, but there was plenty to like about her performance as she settled much better and clearly the penny is dropping. This looks like a match race on paper between us and the third horse home last time. One For The Frog was odds-on then, but he has looked a difficult ride on both his starts and the wide draw may not be ideal.

Amber Dew 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
19:25, Wolverhampton

Amber Dew runs back quickly after fading late in her race over 7f here on Saturday evening. The drop back to six will be in her favour and if the run hasn't taken too much from her, she could have place chances from the same mark.

Rebel Redemption 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
18:55, Wolverhampton

Rebel Redemption won a four-horse race around here in August by a narrow margin but hasn't beaten a rival either at Kempton next time or after a break, on this track. He is the type that can bounce back and from the same mark, he has a favourable draw from which to outrun his odds.

Dark Shot 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
18:25, Wolverhampton

After 102 career starts, Dark Shot finally gets the chance to run around Dunstall Park. A winner at Southwell last time, the handicapper has been very lenient, asking him to run off only 1lb higher. If he acts on the track, there is no doubt he is capable of being a threat.

Ahlawi    WINNER! winner
Mon 28th Nov 2022
18:25, Wolverhampton

Ahlawi had a break in the summer and came back with a good second at Southwell in October. He was less impressive there last time but he has a good draw and forms a double challenge with Dark Shot. 

L'Enclume 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
17:45, Kempton Park

Last time it looked as though the extra distance would be a plus for L'Enclume. This might be a touch of an easier assignment too.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
17:25, Wolverhampton

Kentucky Kingdom has been a solid handicapper and won on his last start over this course and distance in February. he returns off top-weight but with a decent draw and we hope he will shape with promise for the forthcoming winter campaign.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Mon 28th Nov 2022
17:25, Wolverhampton

Harbour Vision has been running consistently well until a slightly below par effort last time at Southwell. He is marginally better around here and if he can get away alertly from his wide draw, he could make them all go and may try to hold on in the straight.

American Rose 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
15:45, Kempton Park

American Rose made her debut at Leicester last month and was soon struggling. This switch to all-weather won't be any easier judged by the form of the opposition and her chance isn't helped by the wide draw either.

Big Wing 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
14:15, Kempton Park

Big Wing was just edged out over 9.5f at Wolverhampton last time and the winner followed up the following week. I think a mile and a half around Kempton will suit him better and I'm delighted to have Jason Watson on board again. Hopeful.

Gerrots 
Mon 28th Nov 2022
14:15, Kempton Park

Gerrots joined us from France last year and while gradually dropping down the handicap, he has been disappointing overall. We're trying him in blinkers today in the hope he improves on a moderate effort on his recent return after a break.

Upton Road 
Sun 27th Nov 2022
15:00, Carlisle

Upton Road has been very lightly-raced as he has had lots of issues. He ran okay for a long way before getting tired on his first run this season. The step up to 3m should help him and soft ground should be fine, but he has been given a tough enough mark for his first run in a handicap.

Lockandload 
Sun 27th Nov 2022
13:10, Leicester

Lockandload showed promise in two bumpers earlier in the summer but so far has been let down by her jumping over obstacles, She has schooled better at home since we've applied blinkers and if she could put in an improved round of jumping today she could well be in the shake-up.

Perseus Way 
Sun 27th Nov 2022
12:40, Leicester

Perseus Way won twice from five starts for Owen Burrows and his owner sent him to us for jumping. He was rated around 80 and we started him off in a Grade 2 juvenile hurdle at Cheltenham, where despite his price of 25/1 he finished well into second up the hill. He looks a decent prospect and this appears an excellent opportunity to get him off the mark.

Masqool 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
20:20, Wolverhampton

Masqool has been in great form this season. After three wins in a row he just was foiled in the four-timer quest with a narrow defeat at Kempton. Dangerous again tonight and should be thereabouts.

Danah Star 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
19:50, Wolverhampton

Danah Star is a tough genuine filly who is slipping down the weights. She has a nice draw so I'm saying each-way chances with a clear run.

Visibility 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

Visibility won over course and distance three runs back and followed with a good run over slightly further before a lesser effort back at the trip last time. He is drawn next to Amber Dew towards the outside and will need to have everything go right to get back into the winner's circle from out there.

Justcallmepete 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

Justcallmepete didn't have much luck in running last week. He has a poor draw again but with a 1lb drop he should be thereabouts as long as he can get a clear run at the turn.

Amber Dew 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

We're trying Amber Dew at seven furlongs for only the second time. It's far from certain she'll stay and if it wasn't going to be hard enough for her, of all the places to get an awful wide draw, 7f at Wolverhampton probably takes the biscuit.

The Big Bite 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
15:25, Newcastle

The Big Bite resumes action in a very competitive Rehearsal Chase but we have to be encouraged by the form of the horses and he seems very well in himself. He has been rated higher in the past and showed a couple of times last season he retains his ability. Hoping for a share of the money on offer.

Teddy Blue 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
14:30, Newbury

Teddy Blue made an instant impression on arriving from France running well in good-class juvenile races. He has continued to progress, winning impressively at Fontwell. He starts handicapping here off what looks a fair mark and should be a contender.

Yorksea 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
14:30, Newbury

Yorksea, a winner on the flat in France for Freddy Head, showed plenty of promise when third on hurdles debut to Knight Salute. He finished his brief campaign winning at Fontwell and returns here as our second runner along with Teddy Blue. We hope he can live up to his opening mark of 123.

Porticello 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
13:55, Newbury

Porticello had an excellent first season's hurdling, going to the Triumph on the back of four wins (one in France) and a single defeat by Knight Salute. He ran a blinder at the Festival, disputing with Fil D'Or until tiring late and finishing sixth to Vauban. He's stepping up in trip but the way he finished off in heavy ground at Haydock in the Victor Ludorum suggests he's likely to stay.

Imphal 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
13:55, Newbury

Non-runner

Mofasa 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
13:00, Newcastle

Mofasa has done nothing wrong in his two novice hurdles, winning both. The step up to 2m6f should be fine for him and the ground should be too. He has a double penalty to contend with but is clear of these on the ratings so should take all the beating all being well.

Fix At All 
Sat 26th Nov 2022
12:30, Newcastle

Fix At All was a bit disappointing last season but he has had his wind done and his back looked at over the summer. His work at home is better than last season so hopefully he can take a step in the right direction today. The trip should be fine and although he would prefer the ground to be a little softer, that should be okay too.

Copper Coin 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
15:40, Newbury

Copper Coin usually runs his race as was the case last time when second at Uttoxeter. Good ground is important to him and he stays three miles very well. This looks a competitive race but he should have each-way claims at a decent price.

Cornicello 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
15:30, Doncaster

Cornicello was useful at 1m2f on the flat and was placed in four hurdle races last season. He would probably have won bar falling when in a winning position on his final start. This season he improved on his reappearance effort to win on his next run and raised only 1lb, was just denied for the follow up. He won impressively at Wincanton last week, and after the rise in his mark for Hereford he is still 4lb well in this time as the last win did not entail a penalty. If he copes with the step up in trip as the pedigree suggests he should be tough to beat as long as his busy spell doesn't catch him out.  

Bobmahley 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
15:15, Ffos Las

Non-runner

Hey Frankie 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
14:55, Doncaster

Hey Frankie did nothing wrong in her novice hurdles from 2m to 3m before  being found to have finished lame after disappointing on her handicap debut. The ground and trip should be ideal for this chase debut on this return after three months' absence. She has schooled well at home and chasing should bring out improvement in her. This looks a decent chance in an ordinary five-horse affair.

Dirham Emirati 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
13:20, Newbury

Dirham Emirati ran yesterday. A late decision will be made about his appearing again today.

Times Are Blue 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
13:10, Doncaster

Times Are Blue has run with credit in both hurdle races this season after winning a bumper last spring. He's a tall, leggy horse who is still on the weak side. He's only a four-year-old who wouldn't handle soft conditions at this stage of his career. Whilst the ground remains decent he'll continue to gain experience and hopefully get his head in front somewhere.

Newtonian 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
13:10, Doncaster

We supply two of the six runners in this 2m5f novice hurdle and Vic Malzard rides Newtonian, who has been very frustrating. He showed he had ability when placed in two bumpers and running okay first time over hurdles at Taunton last season. Then he fell twice in succession at Fontwell, jumping all right until losing concentration. He's been jumping the fences on the Mandown schooling ground every Thursday for two months now and had a short spell with Henrietta Knight last spring and hasn't made a semblance of a mistake. We're hoping all that preparation will have had a positive effect on him. 

Twilight Glory 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
12:55, Ffos Las

Twilight Glory needs to improve on his form to date under Rules, although he did run one very decent race in a point-to-point beforehand. The smaller field and softer ground ought to help him but still he is probably best watched today.

Datsalrightgino 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
12:45, Newbury

Datsalrightgino, by Arc third It's Gino, a high-class jumps sire, is also from a smart female family. He was second in three bumpers before enjoying a fruitful novice hurdling campaign with two wins including at Cheltenham. Switched to fences he ran well when 2nd on debut at Newton Abbot and won impressively at Chepstow last time out. Up 9lb for that he runs in a seriously competitive race but is in tip top form and should run well.

Coastguard Station 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
12:35, Doncaster

Coastguard Station is in good nick and will have come on for his comeback run after a long break at Fakenham the other day. He has a live chance here hopefully with the ground ideal for him.

Givega 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
12:10, Newbury

Non-runner

Tapley 
Fri 25th Nov 2022
12:10, Newbury

Ex-Irish pointer Tapley made an impressive winning debut in a Fontwell bumper but stepped up in class at Cheltenham, he gradually weakened after running into a challenging position coming to the straight. This is a hot hurdle race to start him in and he may also need further than the minimum later in his career. Interesting to see where he fits in here.

Walk In The Wild    WINNER! winner
Thu 24th Nov 2022
15:35, Lingfield

Walk In The Wild won around here two weeks ago when a massive price on stable/chase debut. He won't be a big price today but hopefully he can follow up as we believe he's in the same fettle.

Thor De Cerisy 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
14:35, Lingfield

Thor De Cerisy has shown glimpses of ability throughout his career but he is also very inconsistent. He spent last season running exclusively in France and on his first run in October last year he probably would have won but for falling at the last flight at Auteuil. He didn't match that subsequently but after a summer break he has schooled well for this return race in the UK, his first over fences. Soft ground is very important to him and he is often at his best first time out. Hopeful in a decent race. 

Dirham Emirati 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
14:05, Lingfield

Dirham Emirati had a couple of hurdle runs and showed promise although whether he would have won the second time when a late faller is debatable. He's back from a break and we're taling 5lb off for Caolin. We also run Givega in this race.

Givega    WINNER! winner
Thu 24th Nov 2022
14:05, Lingfield

Givega won his Irish point 18 months ago. He has been pleasing us and has been dominating overnight betting with Hot Rod Lincoln. We are hopeful he can make a winning start under Jamie.

Issar D'Airy 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

I refer to my comments above on Iskar D'Airy. Issar D'Airy has many similarities with his near-namesake. As long as one of them wins, everyone will be happy! Take your pick.

Iskar D'Airy 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Watch your bets and look closely. We have Iskar D'Airy and Issay D'Airy, four-year-olds in the same ownership, both by Derby winner Sinndar, acquired for almost identical amounts from France and with similar form credentials although Iskar is 7lb higher in the weights, and we're claiming 5lb off him. Their prices are just about the same too. You tell us!

Kalpaga 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Kalpaga needs to take a step forward again. We are hopeful of a better run today.

Bobmahley    WINNER! winner
Thu 24th Nov 2022
12:55, Lingfield

Bobmahley stayed on well to win on his seasonal debut at Fakenham last month. The softer conditions and stiffer track today are more suitable but this is a super-competitive race. We are hoping for a solid run and I rate him a good each-way chance. 

Legal Rights 
Thu 24th Nov 2022
12:25, Lingfield

Legal Rights has been a regular winner both on the flat and over jumps. He has been in a relatively quiet spell but his two autumn runs over hurdles should have brought him somewhere close, although the handicapper has been careful not to give him too much rope.

Cornicello 
Wed 23rd Nov 2022
13:20, Hereford

Non-runner

Trevada 
Tue 22nd Nov 2022
15:05, Southwell

Trevada ran better than the bare form suggests on his seasonal debut at Chepstow last month. He's a big horse that takes a lot of work and he definitely needed the outing, travelling well until blowing up three out. I was happy enough with him and he's obviously improved for that race. Hopeful of a good run today.

Spitfire Girl 
Tue 22nd Nov 2022
14:05, Southwell

Spitfire Girl is by Walk In The Park out of a black-type winning sister to the Cheltenham Festival winner Son Of Flicka. This filly is half-sister to 3 winners including Bandit Country and the 135-rated Granny Biddy. She was pretty green and race-rusty on seasonal/hurdling debut but stepped up on that to be fourth last time out. This looks a warm enough race and it might be she finds her level in handicap hurdles further down the line.

Generous Day    WINNER! winner
Tue 22nd Nov 2022
12:35, Southwell

Generous Day is getting to the veteran stage but he did show at times last season there is still life in the old boy. He needed his comeback run over hurdles the other day and I'm hoping we'll see a little more from him back over fences today.

Sea The Clouds 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
15:45, Ludlow

Sea The Clouds is out of a half-sister to Group 2 one mile winner Echo Of Light and Listed 1m4f winer Akaram. He is half-brother to Contended, who has won over hurdles and fences and full-brother to My Mate Mozzie who developed into a Graded novice hurdler. Sea The Clouds was placed in three bumpers last season and won one on his seasonal return. He followed that with an improved display to win on his hurdles debut at Newton Abbot and was second last time out under a penalty. He enters handicaps here off a mark of 111 which looks fair and Will takes off 10lb which puts him firmly in the picture. He should be very competitive.

Moulins Clermont 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
15:25, Kempton Park

Moulins Clermont won two of his four races after joining the stable from France last year. He looks a decent animal on that evidence and in a tight race he should be there or thereabouts on seasonal return.

Dorking Lad    WINNER! winner
Mon 21st Nov 2022
14:20, Kempton Park

Dorking Lad was the outsider of two runners for the stable around here recently on his return to action, but stayed on very strongly into third from the last fence. With that run behind him off what looks a fair mark, he must be very competitive here.

Republican 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
13:50, Kempton Park

I've taken Republican out a couple of times recently before what should have been his seasonal return because the ground turned bottomless. He's a horse I like a lot but he had no luck last season. He's in great form for this return and I'm very hopeful he will run a big race.

Jean Genie 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
13:35, Ludlow

Jean Genie has not won in 22 starts but here he is top-weight conceding 21lb to the favourite who won last time! He's had a couple of near misses in his sequence of four second places so far this term. He deserves to get his head in front but it won't be easy.

Airtothethrone 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
13:35, Ludlow

We run two  six-year-old maidens in this novice handicap chase and they are the top two in the weights! Airtothethrone is much the less experienced of the pair. A son of Yeats, he was placed in two Irish points and went very close in the second of three runs in novice hurdlles last season. I think he'll make a better chaser and we have to be hopeful he will stay three miles. Could go close.

Hudson De Grugy 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
13:15, Kempton Park

Hudson De Grugy is the outsider in the betting on this three-horse race but is not that far behind the favourite on ratings. and his record of four wins in eight hurdle races is creditable. He will be better for his seasonal/chase debut behind Solo at Sandown and may surprise the market.

Invincible Nao 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
12:40, Kempton Park

Invincible Nao takes a 10lb penalty here for his win in a valuable novice race in France during the summer. When he made his debut last month at Ascot he found it difficult under similar circumstances but may have needed the run anyway. To offset the penalty, we're taking off 7lb with Caolin Quinn's claim and as he showed at the weekend he is a very capable young rider. 

Spirit D'Aunou 
Mon 21st Nov 2022
12:10, Kempton Park

Only five line up for this juvenie hurdle race, an unusual one in that they are rarely framed for NH bred animals. Not that ours is technically NH bred as his dam has had winners on the flat in France and his sire is dual purpose. Spirit D'Aunou has done plenty of schooling and could well figure in what might be an ordinary affair.

Colonial Empire 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
15:43, Uttoxeter

Colonial Empire ran extremely well last time out and looked to bump into one! We hope the step up in trip will suit and feel he has a solid winning chance.

Patient Owner 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
15:43, Uttoxeter

Patient Owner is in good nick and looks to be on a workable mark. He hasn't had his required soft ground yet but conditons will be ideal today and he looks to have a small each-way chance.

Upton Road 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
15:00, Exeter

Non-runner

Risk And Roll 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
14:33, Uttoxeter

Risk And Roll ran very well on his return at Newbury, finishing a close second under Tabitha Worsley, who rides him regularly. He has top-weight, but in a five-runner field, we have to be hopeful as long as the ground doesn't prove too tersting.

Black Gerry    WINNER! winner
Sun 20th Nov 2022
14:25, Exeter

Black Gerry took his good form of last winter into a run after a break at the end of May with a comfortable win in a five-runner race at Fontwell. He returns 5lb higher in a better race, but with the horses going well, it wouldn't be a massive shock if he went close.

Boys Of Wexford    WINNER! winner
Sun 20th Nov 2022
13:58, Uttoxeter

Boys Of Wexfod has been schooling well but hasn't shown enough yet to be of interest today.

Super Survivor 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
13:23, Uttoxeter

Super Survivor is by the sire of Grade 1 winner The Storyteller out of a winning half-sister to triple Gold Cup winner Best Mate. He was 2bd in an Irish point before joining us last summer. He had a great novice hurdle season when he won twice and was 2nd on his only other start. He is a proper staying chaser for the future and I look forward to sending him novice chasing this season. He too will appreciate softer ground and further in time but this also looks an ideal starting point. 

Copperfasten 
Sun 20th Nov 2022
13:15, Exeter

Copperfasten won nicely last time  out and had really improved at home. We think the step up in trip and different track will suit but it is a highly competitive race. Solid each-way claims.

Passing Well    WINNER! winner
Sun 20th Nov 2022
12:10, Uttoxeter

Passing Well is by Coastal Path, sire of many Grade 1 winners out of a winning sister to the multiple black type winning Papy Mamy. The dam is by Passing Sale, sire of Grand National winner Mon Mome. Passing Well was 2nd last time out at the Punchestown Festival in a seriously-competitive 21-runner bumper. There he was squeezed on the home turn, losing his position but then rallied to stay on and was closing on the winner at the line, after which he joined us. He jumps really well and has the size and scope to make up into a smart prospect. He'll want soft ground and further in time but this looks a nice starting point.  

Danah Star 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Danah Star has had three runs for us since joining from France. She has been beaten by a similar amount each time and while she has not yet suggested a first win is imminent, from a decent draw she can run a solid race.

Ebury 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Ebury has been on a long losing run and since returning in June has gradually slipped down the handicap. He has the ability to win off his present mark and hopefully he can finally end the drought.

Justcallmepete 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Justcallmepete has taken his time getting over a few hard races earlier in the year. He seems to be showing a few encouraging signs in his work now. He has a poor draw but could have an each-way chance.

Rebel Redemption 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Rebel Redemption won here three runs back but has been totally out of form since. Again, we're hoping that running him through his slump might bring him back into some kind of form.

Abbey Heights 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

Abbey Heights is a horse we've always thought a bit of and he made a decent return to action last time, making a bold bid from a wide draw. Fitness just caught him out late on.

Iconique 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
16:30, Wolverhampton

Iconique ran very well in a better race at Chelmsford recently. I think this track will really suit her and Hayley Turner gets on very well with her. She has a lovely draw so should be able to sit closer to the pace this time. Good each-way chance.

Kitten's Dream 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
16:30, Wolverhampton

Kitten's Dream was a winner over course and distance at the end of August and has been kept busy since, but with contrastingly modest results. He can always put in a good run and he remains reasonably handicapped.

Odin's Quest 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
15:50, Ascot

Odin's Quest is a 4yo homebred who made a winning debut in a five-runner bumper at Huntingdon in January. He has a 4lb penalty for that and they are never easily defied, so we're taking 3lb off. A fascinating private battle between our two and hopefully one of them can win the race.

Hermino AA 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
15:50, Ascot

Hermino AA is a son of Derby/Arc winner Sinndar from a good French family. He went through the ring in Goffs in Ireland more than two years ago and is only now ready for his first run. Jamie rides him but we also run Odin's Quest here and there's no guarantee Jamie's on the right one.

Lasting Legacy 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
15:30, Lingfield

Lasting Legacy seems to enjoy the all-weather much more than turf hence we have returned to that surface in a bid to get things back on track. Ten furlongs around Lingfield is perfect and she has a great draw. Each-way chance.

Sobegrand 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
15:30, Lingfield

We bought Sobegrand at Ascot sales just over two weeks ago after he ran three quick races for the Gosdens. We should find a lot more about him first time in a handicap today.

Kiltealy Briggs 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
15:15, Ascot

Kiltealy Briggs won on his seasonal reappearance and was brave and honest that day. He's been a star for us over the years and has been placed in Grade 1 and 2 company. The only times he's disappointed have been over three miles at the Cheltenham Festival. We've tried to make him a three-miler as he's out of a sister to Ballybriggs, who won the National, but his best runs have been over shorter. He gallops and jumps and we're dropping him back to two miles which is a different approach, but hopefully it will suit on a stiff track such as Ascot. He's got no weight either so while it's a gamble it's an interesting one.

Medrara 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
14:55, Lingfield

Medrara qualified for a handicap mark after his last start and we think they have been very fair in giving him 65. The step up in trip should suit and he  has a decent draw too.

Goshen    WINNER! winner
Sat 19th Nov 2022
14:40, Ascot

After his good season in 2021-2, Goshen's comeback run on debut over fences was disappointing to say the least. This race gives him the chance to do what he does best, but maybe facing Constitution Hill is not the ideal situation for a horse with something to prove. Second would be nice!

Botox Has    WINNER! winner
Sat 19th Nov 2022
14:25, Haydock

Botox Has ran a blinder on his comeback run at Cheltenham last month. In contention all the way he was still there at the last and battled up the hill to be 2nd of 15. Up 4lb for that, which wasn't particularly kind, so we're taking 7lb off for our promising 7lb claimer Caolin Quinn, who has been in good form lately including riding a winner at Chepstow yesterday.

Do Your Job 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
14:05, Ascot

Non-runner

Rhebus Road 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
13:58, Huntingdon

Rhebus Road ran well on his season reappearance at Fakenham last month when 2nd to the promising Sophosc. He takes a lot of work to get fit and had a good blow after the race so he'll definitely be sharper today. That race was over half a mile further than today's, but he is versatile to trip and has won over two miles around here. He won't handle anything on the soft side so hopefully conditions today will be perfect.

Shantou Sunset 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
13:30, Ascot

This will be Shantou Sunset's first run for us. She has been off the track since May, but ran well in this race last year. It looks like being hotly contested today and I will be pleased if she can be competitive and run a solid race.

Far Horizon    WINNER! winner
Sat 19th Nov 2022
12:35, Lingfield

Far Horizon ran okay in two novice events, A mile is probably sharp enough for him but he ran well here before and this isn't a deep race. The jockey takes 5lb off which will help as well.

Let It Shine 
Sat 19th Nov 2022
12:15, Huntingdon

Let It Shine has run okay in his two bumpers. He has schooled well at home but doesn't look good enough on what he's shown so far to be involved today. Ground and track should be fine.

Seasett 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
19:45, Kempton Park

Seasett was very disappointing last time out at Haydock in conditions he should have loved. We think all-weather will suit hom and I like the configuration of the track for him today. Cheek-pieces should help too. He has a few questions to answer but I am hopeful he can bounce back today.

Lasting Legacy 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
19:15, Kempton Park

Non-runner

Don't Tell Rosie 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
17:45, Kempton Park

Don't Tell Rosi is a nice filly just ready to get some experience and her future is all about next season. Anything she does tonight is a bonus.

Silastar 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
16:10, Kempton Park

Silastar won around here in July but didn't quite match that in three quick runs soon after on turf. Back at Kempton after a three-month break, he has a plum inside draw and his promising young rider, who has three wins to her credit, can claim 7lb in this apprentices' race.

Hul Ah Bah Loo 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
16:10, Kempton Park

Hul Ah Bah Loo looked to be on his way back to form last start and there's no reason why he won't back that up here in a similar race. The wide draw is no help but there's plenty of pace and he should stay on well if the race goes well for him. No surprise to see him involved.

In The Air 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
15:15, Ascot

In The Air was a winner in France before joining us and made an impressive start, winning comfortably at Newbury under the penalty. He ran too badly upped in class at Aintree for us to believe it was his true form and a fall first time back at Fontwell came too early to indicate how he would have fared. Still he's one we think has plenty more mileage in him.

Larry    WINNER! winner
Fri 18th Nov 2022
14:40, Ascot

Larry won a valuable chase over this course and distance last October but never really matched the form afterwards, although in fairness we did try him highly. If he returns in his best form he will have a good each-way chance from this mark.

Do Your Job 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
14:05, Ascot

Do Your Job was travelling welll until a mistake cost him any chance in the Old Roan. He has had his wind tightened since and he comes here in good form. The ground should be perfect and while it's a lot of weight, still there's room off this mark. Luca's 3lb claim and the step up in trip will help him. Very hopeful.

Zhiguli 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
14:05, Ascot

Zhiguli had another successful season in 2021-2 winning twice from five runs and matching his tally from the previous season. He hasn't been over-raced and has the potential to achieve more as he moves into better-class races. Today is his first run back but he made a winning return on October 31 last year, so there's grounds for optiimism for another good start.

High Up In The Air 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
14:05, Ascot

We have a double interest here too. High Up In The Air won five races in a row two seasons ago when his rating went from 100 to 135. He ended that campaign with a remote fourth which suggested he'd done enough and it was almost a year until January before he ran again and he pulled up. This has been a similar break and he might need this run.

Midnight Centurion 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
13:55, Catterick

Midnight Centurion is out of a half-sister to the very useful bumper/hurdle/chase winner Centasia and from the family of De Soto 2nd in the Champion bumper and fourth in the Supreme Novices at Cheltenham. He finished second in both his bumper starts and was placed in a couple of novice hurdles before deservedly getting his head in front. His future lies over fences and he jumps really well. He might want further in time but this is a perfect place for him to make his chasing debut. He is off a nice mark and can be competitive.

Diyaken 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
13:30, Ascot

Diyaken joined us from France after winning his only race, a 16-runner 4yo conditions hurdle over 2m2f at Compiegne in April run on heavy ground. Goken, his French-based sire, was a sprinter but on the evidence of Compiegne, it looks as if Diyaken will stay. Interesting on stable debut.

Schelem 
Fri 18th Nov 2022
13:30, Ascot

Schelem, our second runner in this, also came from France and coincidentally he too won his only race by nine lengths - the difference being it was two years ago. He has shown promise at home and in a hot race it will be instructive to see how they compare. If either won it would be great.

Inchbae 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Inchbae has a stayer's pedigree and after running in two one-mile handicaps, I'm hopeful she can show improvement stepping up to 1m2f. Each-way chances.

Dorothee 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
19:00, Chelmsford

Dorothee won her maiden at Yarmouth and was then off for four months before running unplaced in her first handicap at Brighton. With that outing behind her, she could challenge for a place.

Arpina 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
17:30, Chelmsford

Arpina ran well last time after a break. She is always competitive in this grade but hasn't had much luck with the draw here. Dylan has chosen to ride Chagal which he won on last time but I think we should be thereabouts again as Arpina is very well at home.

Henley Park 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
17:30, Chelmsford

Henley Park won a 10f Lingfield handicap in January by a narrow margin but could not match that form for the rest of the campaign. He returns after a nine-week break able to run off a similar mark but his draw in 12 back to a mile is not a help.

Peaky Boy 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
15:23, Newcastle

Irish point winner Peaky Boy ran well in his first bumper, just bumping into one. He looks the one to beat on form and has probably come on a bit for that run. Again, he's unproven with lots of cut in the ground so that would be an unknown.

Ebonello    WINNER! winner
Thu 17th Nov 2022
14:05, Wincanton

Ebonello was placed in both her bumpers last season and pleased us when coming out and winning at Sedgefield getting up close home after showing signs of greenness. She can continue to improve and hopefully can win again.

Coastguard Station 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
13:55, Market Rasen

This has come down to a four-runner race. Coastguard Station heads the weights and after his promising return when third at Fakenham, he should have every chance.

Faitque De Lisle 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
13:38, Newcastle

Faitque De Lisle won at Ffos Las last time and is up 4lb for that which still leaves him in the 0-100 bracket. That wasn't a strong race but neither is this. Course and trip are no concern but very soft ground would be if the rain keeps coming. He's in great form and has come on again since his win but conditions are a concern.

Let Me Entertain U 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
13:03, Newcastle

Let Me Entertain U has lots of scope off this mark but doesn't try as hard as he might. Good to soft ground won't be a worry nor will the step back up to 3m - it's more what he decides he wants to do.

Cornicello    WINNER! winner
Thu 17th Nov 2022
12:25, Wincanton

Cornicello has been running well and after winning the previous time ran another good race when second at Hereford. This is a hands and heels race and his rider is inexperienecd so we're hoping Cornicello can help him to a first career win.

Superstylin 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
12:17, Market Rasen

You can put a line through Superstylin's last run as he pulled hard for almost two miles. A very tall horse and much more a future chaser, he does have ability but currently needs to learn to settle. Hopefully he can switch off at the back today and get into a rhythm. If he relaxes early and is patiently ridden we will see a lot better from him.

I Am Gonna Be 
Thu 17th Nov 2022
12:00, Newcastle

I Am Gonna Be ran well at Uttoxeter last time and the step up in trip looks like it should be a big plus. He has form on soft in a point so rain wouldn't be a huge worry at this point. This doesn't look the deepest of contests so he must have a big chance.

Big Bard 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

Big Bard is equally capable on turf and all-weather but there does seem to be a discrepancy when he encounters soft turf. After a great 2nd of 16 on good ground at Windsor when he just failed to get up, he was a disappointing favourite on the soft at Brighton. He has yet to run at Kempton which can ride slow but from a good draw he must have a decent each-way shout.

Seneca Chief 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

Seneca Chief missed the kick last time when finishing third over course and distance. If he can break better he should be competitive at this level.

La Rav 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

La Rav was not beaten far last time when his jockey seemed not at full strength. His draw in 12 is not great but I rate him a good each-way bet with the boy taking 5lb off.

Ahlawi 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
16:38, Southwell

Ahlawi ran a good second last here month over six furlongs, staying on well at te finish. From a good draw he tries seven for the first time and if he stays he ought to have a great chance.

Sycamore 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
16:38, Southwell

Our second runner Sycamore is realistically second string to Ahlawi. He was an easy winner over a mile here in January and from his higher mark, could not find the speed to supplement the win when switching back to 6f at Wolverhampton the following month. This trip is fine as is the draw but he may just need the run after the absence..

Light Up Our Stars 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
16:08, Southwell

Light Up Our Stars joined us in mid-season from Tony Carroll, who kept busy while winning three times this year. He's won another as well as a couple of good placed efforts for us and if he can replicate the form he showed when second at Newcastle in September he shouldn't be far away.

Spice Heaven 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
15:45, Warwick

Spice Heaven is out of a half-sister to Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Sizing John and our Grade 2 winner Anythingforlove. Spice Heaven was in pre-training in Ireland last season and arrived wih us this autumn. This is just the starting point for her on racecourse debut but I'd like to think she can finish in the top half of this field.

Fine Wine 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
14:38, Southwell

Fine Wine had a tremendous time over the last winter/spring season running 18 times for five wins with his rating going from 68 to 95, off which he ran in the middle in the Dash at Epsom on Derby Day. This will be his first run since and from a good draw hopefully he can start from where he left off with another sound effort.

Milldam 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
13:53, Hexham

Milldam is a son of Martaline out of a winning half-sister to the useful 2m1f to 2m4f hurdle and chase winner Polidam and Dayladam. Milldam was placed in all three starts over hurdles in France and arrived here midway through last season. He finished midfield in the Boodles at the Festival in March, thereby remaining a novice for this season. He was second on his seasonal debut and should improve for the run and he will appreciate the softer ground. Hopefully he can get off the mark here.

Captain's Bar 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
13:35, Southwell

We bought Captain's Bar out of the Hannon stable at the July Sales and have taken our time with him. He had been in excellent form only belatedly coming to all-weather and while he has never run over 5f, he always showed plenty of speed. Looking forward to getting him out today.

You Wear It Well 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
13:23, Hexham

You Wear It Well is a daughter of Midnight Legend out of a winning black-type mare who has produced three winners from four runners including  five-time scorer Schiaparannie. She finished second on her racecourse debut at Ludlow and then easily won a Catterick bumper which looked quite competitive. We like this mare who jumps well and she duly made an impressive return on her hurdling debut, winning by a wide margin at Worcester. Hopefully she can defy the penalty today before stepping up in class.

Warranty 
Wed 16th Nov 2022
12:45, Warwick

Warranty had been very consistent with three second places in four after joining us earlier in the year. That really didn't prepare us for the ease of his win when returning after five months off in a Plumpton handicap hurdle which he won by nine lengths. Up 7lb for that we have to be hopeful he might have a bit more up his sleeve.

Valorant 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
19:15, Newcastle

We have yet to find the key to Valorant. A 77-rated winning miler for the Charltons, his mark has dropped in seven months and only five runs to 55. We are trying a first-time hood to see if that can eke out some of that old ability.

Lady Ursula 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
16:45, Newcastle

Lady Ursula was drawn on the wing last time at Yarmouth and never got any cover. She ran well under the circumstances and with a much better draw today she can improve again.

Lady Primrose 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
16:12, Newcastle

Lady Primrose ran well on debut at Yarmouth but I expect her to have improved significantly for that run. She looks a picture and this 6f at Newcastle will suit. Hopeful.

Pirate King    WINNER! winner
Tue 15th Nov 2022
15:42, Newcastle

Pirate King has had a good holiday and has been doing some dressage to freshen him up and getting him to use himself properly. As a result I have never seen him in such good nick physically and am looking forward to this winter with him. He likes going left-handed and I am hopeful of a decent performance today.

Republican 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
15:30, Lingfield

Republican has been off since January with various niggles but he's came back well and on his best form he would have a decent chance. In retrospect, his last run over fences when he was fourth trying to give weight to Slipway, was shown to be fair form when that horse won at Fontwell on Sunday. Another each-way chance. 

Baya Lescribaa 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
15:22, Fakenham

Baya Lescribaa has a nice French pedigree - his sire Spanish Moon being responsible for many decent jumpers. He faces only four opponents in this newcomers' bumper and while there looks to be confidence behind at least a couple of them, I'm hoping he can put up a decent show.

Tallow For Coal    WINNER! winner
Tue 15th Nov 2022
15:00, Lingfield

Tallow For Coal is brother to two black-type winners from a good female family which features Denman. Tallow For Coal won a maiden Irish point-to-point and was placed in all three novice hurdles. However, he was always going to be a better chaser and won two novice handicaps and placed another three times. He has done well for the summer and he is still a young horse with more improvement in him.  He is fit and well and this looks a suitable race in which to start him outside novice company. This is competitive but he should run well.

Waikiki Waves 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
14:30, Lingfield

Waikiki Waves was becoming very lazy in his races last season and judged on his comeback at Fontwell 11 days ago that tendency has not been altered by his summer break. He did win a race around here last December so the hope is when he gets to Lingfield he might be encouraged to try his hardest. We can dream anyway!

Icare Grandchamp 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
14:00, Lingfield

We bought Icare Grandchamp after he ran a nice race in a 4yo conditions hurdle at Compiegne in March. He cost a lot of money so the first run in Harry Redknapp's colours at Worcester last month was a little disappointing. He probably needed the run a little more than we thought and now he will be fitter and more competitive off what looks a fair mark for his first handicap.

Cilaos Glace 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
14:00, Lingfield

Cileos Glace will love the ground today and we have put him back to hurdles as he never seemed to enjoy fences although he did jump them well at home. On his best form he would go close and looks a decent value each-way bet.

Commander Of Ten 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Commander Of Ten was an 80/1 shot when running an excellent first race over jumps, finishing third at Cheltenham last month. The Toby Lawes horse looks the one to beat, but we do not have too much to find to match him. Hopeful.

Maclaine 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Non-runner

Abingworth 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Abingworth is a home-bred with a nice French jumps pedigree and he made a promising start when runner-up in his first bumper last season. The next efforts were less convincing but he seems the type to do better with a jump in front of him. Place chances.

Tenfold 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Tenfold soon lost any chance at Kempton the other day when his saddle slipped. He does tend to pull hard though so it would help if he could be more amenable as the main objective today would be for him to jump round safely.

Tazka 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
13:00, Lingfield

Tazka won over fences two seasons back and after returning from a 14-month break did well to finish runner-up in a couple of chases early in the summer. Ready to continue from where she left off, and with chances if in the same form. 

Herecomesfreddie 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
12:45, Hereford

Bumper winner HerecomesFreddie made a fair enough start to hurdling at Worcester but this is a different class novice. He'd do well to get close to the principals.

Captain Attridge 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
12:45, Hereford

Non-runner

Authorised Speed    WINNER! winner
Tue 15th Nov 2022
12:30, Lingfield

Authorised Speed won his bumper last season but he vastly improved on that when fifth in the Festival Bumper at Cheltenham beaten 11 lengths behind Facile Vega. If he jumps securely this would look an obvious opportunity. 

Hector Jaguen 
Tue 15th Nov 2022
12:30, Lingfield

Hector Jaguen was placed in a point last season. He is likely to find these going too quickly for him. The stable second string, he will benefit from the experience.

Six O' Hearts    WINNER! winner
Mon 14th Nov 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Six O' Hearts was far from disgraced over course and distance last month when after a slow start he finished close behind the leaders in a creditable sixth. That was only his second run in a handicap and off 3lb lower, with a better start he could figure at the finish tonight.

Duke Of Firenze 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Old Duke Of Firenze has been on a long losing run but he ran better than the finishing position suggests at Catterick and his AW mark is 9lb lower than the last time he ran here in August. He's in really good order, has a good draw and I'm expecting a much-improved performance.

Coast 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

Coast won over 6f here in early July and was off the track until last Friday, again here, when she showed signs of ring-rustiness after the absence. She should have tightened up for the outing, but her outside draw is a possible negative unless she gets a flyer from the stalls.

Endofastorm 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Endofastorm justified our optimism before her latest run at Newcastle, vastly outrunning her 25/1 odds by making a persistent challenge against well-fancied debutant Southwold. She has improved again for that run and from a good draw I'm confident she will take another step forward.

Jack Sprat 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
16:05, Exeter

Jack Sprat is by Walk In The Park, sire of many Grade 1 winning jumpers including Douvan and Min, from a successful female family on the flat and over jumps. He was backed and ridden away last summer and after a winter's education, made his debut in a bumper at Chepstow, finishing a promising fourth. Green and backward that day, he has matured since and can run a nice race here.

Hit The Rocks 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
14:40, Plumpton

The ground was heavy at Fontwell last February when Hit The Rocks, by mud-loving sire Fast Company, achieved his sole win over jumps. He came back to the track a fortnight ago when well beaten, but we are expecting an improved performance, but whether it will be enough for him to trouble the judge we are unsure. Certainly the more rain we get the better.

Oscarsman    WINNER! winner
Mon 14th Nov 2022
14:40, Plumpton

Oscarsman had been off the track for two years before what in the circumstances was a creditable return here two weeks ago. Hopefully he will have come on for that and we can get a clear run with him from now on.

Representing Bob 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
14:30, Exeter

Representing Bob is out of a winning Bob Back mare and from the family of Gold Cup winner Synchronised. He wasn't beaten far in his bumper but still looked green and backward in three hurdle starts. As a result he picked up a low handicap mark and exploited it last season with three wins over fences and two close seconds. He still wasn't the finished article so we didn't over-race him and there should be more to come this season. A good second on his return at Uttoxeter last month, he'll improve for the run. He would appreciate some cut in the ground so hopefully it hasn't dried out too much. 

Royal Lake 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
14:30, Exeter

Royal Lake has a profile a bit like Ballaquane who won first time over fences yesterday. While his hurdle runs hadn't been exciting, there were usually reasons for them and I always thought he would be a better chaser. He returns after a six-month absence and I'm hoping for a good showing first time over fences.

Darebin 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
14:10, Plumpton

Darebin has been a prolific winner over the years, usually from the front, so this small field should be to his liking. He returned at Fontwell ten days ago after a summer break and should be straighter now. Interesting.

Albert Van Ornum 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
13:40, Plumpton

Albert Van Ornum, an ex-French horse, has been really disappointing and we felt we needed to drop him in class. Even in this modest seller at least two of these have much more obvious chances and he will need to make significant improvement to match them.

Heaven Smart 
Mon 14th Nov 2022
13:10, Plumpton

Ex-pointer Heaven Smart made a promising start for us when second, albeit a long way behind the odds-on winner on hurdling debut over this course and distance two weeks ago. He again faces a short-priced favourite, but we hope with the experience behind him, he can make more of a challenge this time.

Scamallach Liath    WINNER! winner
Mon 14th Nov 2022
13:10, Plumpton

Scamallach Liath makes his debut in this 2m4f novice hurdle having won one of his three Irish point-to-points. He was sourced for me by Leighton Aspell who rode winners for this horse's owners Sue and Joe Norman. He is easy to deal with and has schooled well, although considering he has had three runs, he is still quite a green horse. Place chances.

Roger Pol 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
16:00, Cheltenham

Roger Pol, by Shantou, sire of multiple Grade 1 winners out of a flat winning dam by Monsun, is a relative of a host of black-type winners including seven-time successful Adrrastos, which we used to train. Roger Pol was second on his only start in an Irish point, when he went down narrowly, He won pretty impressively in a warm Worcester bumper on his debut for us. He could be smart and can run well here despite this being a good race.

Makety 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
15:50, Fontwell Park

Makety ran well stepped up to 3m for the first time at Hexham last time, looking the likely winner until fading from the last fence. That showed she retains her enthusiasm and we're dropping her back in trip as this looked the right race for her. Each-way chances.

Ballaquane    WINNER! winner
Sun 13th Nov 2022
15:15, Fontwell Park

Ballaquane finished third on his bumper almost three years ago but proved less inspiring over hurdles. Sold as he had been owned by the late Trevor Hemmings, I bought him back to go chasing. He has schooled well and in what looks an ordinary contest we are hopeful, although Fontwell can be a tricky course for a novice.

Mark of Gold 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
14:55, Cheltenham

Mark Of Gold, a Golden Horn gelding, has been kept to hurdling since joining us, and has won four of his eight starts. All the wins have been at Plumpton including his return to action last month and hopefully he should be ready for this big step up in class. He has a low weight and could be a value each-way bet at what looks a massive price.  

Aggagio 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
14:40, Fontwell Park

You could hardly find a more genuine performer than Aggagio, who won two hurdles last season and then went on to win three handicaps on the flat at Goodwood, none by more than half a length. By the end of the year, his flat rating had risen to 87, so he should be very competitive off his existing hurdles mark of 108. Hoping for another good season over jumps.

Eva's Oskar 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
14:20, Cheltenham

Eva's Oskar is in great heart at home, has good course form and the trip is ideal, although he would prefer softer ground. We are hoping for a big run after his encouraging return at Kelso.

Full Back 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
14:05, Fontwell Park

Full Back had another good season in staying chases in 2021-2, winning at Cheltenham on New Year's Day and following that with a big run behind Yala Enki in a marathon at Taunton. He made a highly-encouraging return when fourth at Ascot three weeks ago and should be ready to get back in the winner's circle under top-weight here.

Aviles 
Sun 13th Nov 2022
13:30, Fontwell Park

Aviles ran once over hurdles in France seven months ago, finishing a promising fourth. He never raced on the flat beforehand and we've been happy with him since he joined the stable. His experience of hurdles will be to his advantage and hopefully he can go close today.

Maclaine    WINNER! winner
Sun 13th Nov 2022
12:30, Fontwell Park

Maclaine has been a work in progress. A huge horse who had looked weak and immature previously, he has now filled his frame and strengthened. A fast-finishing fourth after initially looking no threat in his bumper, he then went hurdling and knocked the first flight over on debut. Back to basics next time he finished third and now after a good break he should be ready to show what he can do. Hopeful.

Hello Zabeel

Rebel Redemption 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Rebel Redemption jumped out of the stalls very alertly here two runs back and made the rest of the running to win nicely. He couldn't get to the front last time at Lingfield, but from a nice draw near the inside, if Elisha can get him to break well, he could be hard to peg back.

Ebury 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

Ebury has started favourite the last twice and in fairness hasn't been beaten all that far in either. He looked a little unlucky when denied a run in the straight last time here and tonight from an okay draw and 2lb lower mark he might get an overdue success.

Queens Gamble    WINNER! winner
Sat 12th Nov 2022
16:05, Cheltenham

Queens Gamble, a home-bred filly whose owners raced her dam with success with Jessica Harrington, made a wide-margin winning debut on the track in April, so it was sensible we thought to try to get some black type in this Listed bumper. Queenie has been working nicely at home and has the most wonderful attitude: she just gets on with life and nothing phases her. Looking forward greatly to seeing her back on the track.

Symphorine 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
16:05, Cheltenham

Symphorine shaped nicely in the spring, finishing second on debut in a Fontwell bumper. The experience will not have been lost on her, but this is always a very tough mares' bumper and she will do well to get in the first six today.

Capricorn Prince 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
15:45, Lingfield

Capricorn Prince did the best of our trio coming back after their long breaks in the same Newbury amateur riders' race last month. He was in great form early in the year, winning three times, two around here. He has a good draw and a capabe claimer riding so he should not be far away.

GA Law    WINNER! winner
Sat 12th Nov 2022
14:20, Cheltenham

GA Law goes for the Paddy Power Gold Cup. He is half-brother to six winners including Val De Law who was placed in a Grade 1 for us two years ago. He won on hurdles debut in France before arriving with us. After giving him time to acclimatise he hit the ground running in novice chases as we utilised the generous 4yo wfa allowance. He won three novices on the bounce including the Grade 2 Rising Stars Chase at Wincanton and placed in the Henry VIII (Grade 1) at Sandown and Pendil (Grade 2) at Kempton but then picked up an injury before Aintree 2021. Off for 600 days, he returned in the Old Roan Chase there, making a mistake 5 out but staying on strongly to be third beaten only a length. My only concern is that the race was just three weeks ago and that he doesn't "bounce" after the long absence. If he doesn't he will have a seriously good chance.. 

Nassalam 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
14:20, Cheltenham

Nassalam probably needed his run at Ascot after his long summer break rather more than we expected beforehand. The Paddy Power is always one of the toughest handicap chases of the pre-Christmas period but we expect him to have benefited from the Ascot run and hope he can put up a good show, possibly running into the money if back to last season's best form.

Bells Of Peterboro 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
14:12, Uttoxeter

Bells Of Peterboro ran a lovely race last time and has come on for that at home. We hope he will run a solid race today but he is better on heavy ground.

Soldier Of Destiny 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
13:53, Wetherby

Soldier Of Destiny is a Presenting gelding out of a winning dam and half-brother to a couple of winners. Beaten five lengths on Irish point-to-point debut behind subsequent Grade 1 winner Gentlemansgame, he was then second in a bumper. After a lack-lustre start over hurdles he proved a revelation over fences, winning decent novice handicaps at Ffos Las and Haydock. He needed his run in the Old Roan more than I thought he would but he has improved since and I'd like to think he can go well here.

Hardy Du Seuil 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
13:18, Wetherby

Hardy Du Seuil is by Coastal Path, from the family of Silviniaco Conti and Cheltenham Festival winner Eglantine Du Seuil. He was 2nd in two 3yo bumpers in France before bolting up over hurdles at Fontainebleau. He then came to us and we sent him novice chasing last season when he utilised the wfa allowance, winning twice and finishing 2nd in a Grade 3. His jumping of fences wasn't always assured though and we thought he would appreciate going back over hurdles this season where he runs off a lower mark. The ground was too quick in the Welsh Champion Hurdle on his reappearance and if we put a line through that he looks a big price here today.. 

Trixster 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
13:10, Cheltenham

Trixster comes here on the back of a really solid run. He ought to handle the track and trip and has a super light weight. We are hoping for a huge effort from him, so solid each-way claims.

Silver In Disguise 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
13:10, Cheltenham

Silver In Disguise needs to step up on his seasonal debut but the big, galloping track and stiff finish will be to his liking. We're hopeful of a decent run in an exceptionally competitive race.

Star Of Sussex 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:50, Lingfield

Star Of Sussez, coincidentally also by Sea The Stars, is in a much earlier phase in his career than Perseus Way. Last of 13 on his sole start at Newmarket in September, we hope he will have learnt plenty from the experience.

Perseus Way    WINNER! winner
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:35, Cheltenham

Perseus Way, a gelding by Sea The Stars, picked up two nice races from only five starts with Owen Burrows. After winning a decent Newbury 10f handicap in September, owner Oliver Harris sent him to us for jumping and he starts in a race where we have had success in the past. We are hopeful he can make a bright start to his hurdles career.

Gentle Frank 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:27, Uttoxeter

Gentle Frank is our second runner in this novice hurdle, and he showed promise in the last of his three runs in UK points. One for the future.

Adamhill 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:27, Uttoxeter

Adamhill makes his stable debut after a long absence. He's shown little bits of form in bumpers but needs to find more switched to hurdles.

Recuerdame 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:15, Lingfield

Recuerdame has run well on both starts since returning from a lengthy break. He is a regular here and is sure to find his races over the winter, indeed he should not be too far away today if the race gets run to suit him. Top all-weather rider has won on him before so it will be no surprise to see him involved.

Dynakite 
Sat 12th Nov 2022
12:15, Lingfield

Dynakite has been a little disappointing so far and needs to improve on what he's shown to make an impact. The positives are that this is a smallish field of nine and he has a good draw, so hoping for better today.

Big Wing 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Big Wing has had a short break since running his best race since joining us at Kempton, staying on into a close fifth. If the drop back in trip does not inconvenience him he could be challenging up the home straight. Each-way chance.

Broomy Law 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Broomy Law is another who has been sliding down the handicap and if I'm fair, with not much sign of breaking though. We're trying first-time cheek-pieces and the hope is they will galvanise him.

Poet 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Poet has been a massive price for all his runs since joining us this year, but there was encouragement from his latest close fifth when an 80/1 shot. Just a little progress could get this horse, a winner late last year for his previous stable, into the first three. Hopeful. 

Fiscal Policy 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Fiscal Policy won a couple of runs ago at Kempton. We are trying cheek-pieces for the first time after a subsequent disappointment, but he has a tricky draw in ten to cope with in this apprentices' handicap.

Coast 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Coast has had a break since her win around here off 6lb lower back in July. Her draw is not ideal and it could take a race or two for her to get back in the swim. Place chances.

Banana 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
16:55, Wolverhampton

Banana's slide down the handicap shows no sign of slowing down and she now is a full 32lb lower than her mark in the spring. She can surely be dangerous from today's good draw if she finds her old form, but her price suggests the market doesn't expect it. Maybe worth a small each-way at that price.

Mystic Man 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
14:30, Southwell

Mystic Man makes his debut for the stable in this NH maiden hurdle under good amateur Ben Bronley. Ben knows him well having finished runner-up on him in a Stratford bumper in May for his previous stable and also having ridden him in English points, winning one of five. A nice type who should go well.

Galop Du Bosc 
Fri 11th Nov 2022
12:15, Southwell

Galop Du Bosc ran well for third in a competitive affair at Ludlow last week. I am hoping that the drop in grade will suit him. Solid chance for this reliable performer.

Fai Fai 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
19:30, Chelmsford

Fai Fai has been a real project, as when he arrived in my yard he was a proper handful, but we gradually sorted him out. Six furlongs around Chelmsford should suit him and he has been gelded since his last run. I am hoping for a big improvement on that effort tonight.

Colombidea 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
18:30, Chelmsford

Colombidea found a mile on heavy ground too far last time out. The return to seven furlongs should suit her tonight and we think she will handle the track. She should go close.

Diplomatie 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
16:10, Taunton

Diplomatie won four times (the last over hurdles at Nimes in September) from 14 runs in France. She obviously has ability and was pretty fit when she joined us but we're still finding out about her. She schools and works well and I'm hoping she will run a good first race for us in this mares' handicap hurdle.

Bells Of Stamford 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
15:45, Market Rasen

Bells Of Stamford has improved a lot for his run at Fakenham. If he takes to fences today he would have strong each-way claims.

Legends Ryde 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
15:15, Market Rasen

Legends Ryde is out of a black-type winning mare who won the Listed Mares' Hurdle Final at Newbury. She won a bumper and was second in another at Listed level before winning her novice hurdle. Covid then interrupted her progression but she came back to form last season in novice chases. She won three and was second in a valuable Graduation Chase at Ascot. Her recent comeback third would have brought her on nicely. This Listed race is very competitive and she'll have to improve again to win it, but she (unlike some in the field) is guaranteed to stay and is not without an each-way chance.

Artistic Endeavour 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
15:00, Taunton

Artistic Endeavour made a satisfactory start to his career at Sedgefield and hopefully will progress from that. Anywhere near the principals and we will be happy.

Ocean Drifter 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
14:40, Market Rasen

Ocean Drifter - Murphy in the stable - had good form two seasons ago, but the following year sustained an injury and has been off the track foir 568 days. He came back in the summer and has been working and schooling wlell but after such a long time off will obviously be better for the run.

Margaret's Legacy 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
14:40, Market Rasen

Margaret's Legacy jumped and travelled well for a long way on his stable debut but was too keen. We are hoping he will settle today and if he does he ought to be very competitive in this line-up.

Sinurita 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
13:30, Market Rasen

Sinurita ran in one point in Ireland , finishing third, before joining us last season. She has had a long time off the track so I am sure she will improve for today's outing. She has done plenty of work though and has shown enough to suggest she has each-way claims today. 

Vision Clear 
Thu 10th Nov 2022
13:15, Taunton

Vision Clear came back from a year off with a run in the Newbury amateurs' handicap late last month in which we ran three horses back froim longish breaks. He was perhaps the least forward of the group that day and on latest hurdles form has a bit to find today with two of these. Earlier in his career he would have been at least at their level and with the horses in good form, he goes for this selling hurdle with a chance.

Dream Composer 
Wed 9th Nov 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Dream Composer has a 5lb hike in the weights to contend with after his nice win at Ascot last month in a very competitive handicap. He has a wide draw but on the positive side, the form of the Ascot race has worked out well so this in-form horse is no forlorn hope..

Junkanoo    WINNER! winner
Wed 9th Nov 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Junkanoo struggled a bit this summer/autumn having come back from a long absence. So far all his 13 career races have been on turf and he starts on all-weather drawn in the car park in 13. It will be interesting to see how he copes with that draw and the first experience of an artificial surface. We will be delighted if he gets somewhere close tonight.

Masqool    WINNER! winner
Wed 9th Nov 2022
18:30, Kempton Park

Masqool has delighted us lately winning his last three and now bidding for the four-timer off a 5lb higher mark in a much deeper race tonight. He is clearly going the right way however and from a good draw, he should be thereabouts.

Beccara Rose    WINNER! winner
Wed 9th Nov 2022
17:30, Kempton Park

Beccara Rose made a lovely debut at Doncaster on hock-deep ground. She is a filly we like a huge amount but she is a big girl and is only going to improve with age. She is well drawn and should go well around Kempton, so I'm hoping for a big run tonight

Iconique 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
20:00, Chelmsford

Iconique ran very well over this track last time, just doing a little too much early on. This slightly shorter trip should suit her well and Hayley knows her like the back of her hand. Big chance.

Via Serendipity 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
19:30, Chelmsford

Via Serendipity has always been better on all-weather than turf. This track should suit him and he seems in great form at home. I would not be surprised if he were to run a big race tonight.

Lady Ursula

Quizlet 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
16:30, Chelmsford

Quizlet has run okay in maidens but realistically his life will become more interesting when he can run in handicaps. This third run should qualify him for that. 

Cornicello 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
16:15, Hereford

Cornicello was twice a winner over 1m2f on the flat and placed in four hurdle starts before taking a nasty fall at the last flight when looking the most likely winner at Huntingdon. He has come back better than ever this autumn winning nicely at Plumpton and from a 1lb higher mark is the one they all have to beat,

Mister Tickle 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
15:30, Lingfield

We're switching Mister Tickle to hurdles after a long spell racing unsuccessfully over fences. It's hard to know what to expect, especially in this ground.

Ozzie Man    WINNER! winner
Tue 8th Nov 2022
15:00, Lingfield

Ozzie Man returned after a year off at Plumpton recently and on chase debut did well to win narrowly. Up just 1lb for that in what's now a four-horse race, we have to be hopeful of a follow-up.

Prison Break 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
14:45, Hereford

Prison Break returns from his summer holiday on a nice mark. He's a progressive type but is likely to take a step forward from today's run in a competitive field.

Peur De Rien 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
14:45, Hereford

Peur De Rien lost his way completely last season and today will hopefully be a confidence boost. He continues to work well at home and I don't think he'll run too badly today.

Imperial Hope 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
14:00, Lingfield

Imperial Hope was running very well in his first chase at Bangor the other day when his race had to be declared void. A point winner in Ireland, he should go well today.

Walk In The Wild    WINNER! winner
Tue 8th Nov 2022
14:00, Lingfield

Walk In The Wild joined us recently and makes his debut over fences after a longish time off. A fair maiden hurdler, we will know more about him after today.

Judex Lefou 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:45, Hereford

Judex Lefou blew away the cobwebs recently with a spin around Huntingdon. He has improved at home since and we hope to have big each-way claims with him today.

Saligo Bay    WINNER! winner
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:30, Lingfield

Saligo Bay ran well the other day at Fakenham and overall has been very consistent. He ran well on soft going last season and while the ground today will be very testing, we are hopeful he can handle it. Big chance.

Weaver's Answer 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:15, Hereford

Weaver's Answer has a little more experience than our other runner Hidden Belle, but he too will be better in handicaps.

Key Factor 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:15, Hereford

Ex-pointer Key Factor pulled too hard early on Rules debut at Chepstow the other day and had to be pulled up. Hopefully he will be less headstrong today and we want him to show us a little more of what he can do

Hidden Belle 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:15, Hereford

Hidden Belle is just a baby really and will find this a tough assignment. She will be better when able to run in handicaps.

Pappa Rocco Coco 
Tue 8th Nov 2022
13:00, Lingfield

Papa Rocco Coco is by Shirocco from the family of Arkle Chase winner Mulligan. He looks to have plenty of speed but was green and backward on his debut last month. If he can step forward and harness that ability here he would have an each-way chance.

L'Enclume    WINNER! winner
Mon 7th Nov 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

L'Enclume unfortunately hasn't quite gone on as we had hoped from her novice win in January. She has trained nicely after a little freshen up and I'm hopeful she will stay the extra distance tonight. If she does, she could easily outrun her odds.

Light Up Our Stars 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Light Up Our Stars was a prolific winner when with Tony Carroll and since joining us he has shown equal ability on turf and all-weather. His last second at Newcastle was creditable and if Luke can get him into a good position from his ideal draw near the inside, he should go very close.

Visibility 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Visibility has really come to himself in recent runs around here, all over different distances. He won nicely over today's 7f two runs back and then just failed to hold on to a lead in the home straight trying further last time. Back at what we thing is his ideal trip, he should take all the beating in a tight 0-75 handicap.

Haddex Des Obeaux 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
14:35, Kempton Park

Haddex Des Obeaux made rapid strides last season, winning twice late in 2021 after which he was off until last month. Resuming at Newton Abbot, also first time over fences, he was in contention until tiring in the closing stages. He will be straighter today and we feel he is potentially a chaser with a future.

Dorking Lad    WINNER! winner
Mon 7th Nov 2022
14:35, Kempton Park

Dorking Lad, one of two we have in this handicap chase, is by far the more experienced. He ran right through last winter for two chase wins as his mark went up around 10lb. Back after a good summer, he could need this first run for seven months but he should not be long getting back into his stride.

Dalamoi    WINNER! winner
Mon 7th Nov 2022
13:25, Kempton Park

After winning his novice hurdle in the soft at Ffos Las late last year, Dalamoi had a few runs in handicaps and generally acquitted himself pretty well. He's bred to be a chaser and I'm looking forward to this first run over fences, in which he doesn't seem too badly weighted. Hoping for a good start to his season.

Commander Of Ten 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
13:10, Carlisle

Meeting abandoned

Iskar D'Airy 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
12:50, Kempton Park

Iskar D'Airy won his bumper in the French provinces and didn't shape too badly in two starts in that sphere after joining us. Since going over hurdles his two runs have been under-whelming and we need to see something more after a very disappointing effort first time this term.

Tenfold 
Mon 7th Nov 2022
12:50, Kempton Park

Tenfold is our second runner in this novice. He came to us from the Meades with an 80 flat handicap which didn't leave us much room to manoeuvre. He did have one run over hurdles at the beginning of last year, pulling up in a decent race. He was then off until last month at Newbury where along with a few others back from long breaks he needed the run. On that evidence it will take some more time before he is up to winning.

Moulins Clermont 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
15:05, Sandown

Moulins Clermont ran only four times last season, but won twice. In the first of them he was a 13-length winner from Malakahna on this track in January and that filly's subsequent exploits over hurdles and more recently on the flat put the performance into perspective. He found Pied Piper and company too strong in the Triumph Hurdle trial at Cheltenham, but signed off with a nice win at Fakenham in April. Another we're excited to see back in action with the season ahead of him.

Hardy Du Seuil 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
15:05, Sandown

Hardy Du Seuil, a son of top French jumps stallion Coastal Path from a smart female family, finished second in two French bumpers as a three-year-old before bolting up at Fontainebleau. We utilised his 4yo WFA allowance to win two chases and he also finished second in a Grade 2 novice chase at Haydock. His jumping of fences wasn't always assured, though, so we've brought him back hurdling where he is better handicapped. He found the ground too fast in the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las last month, but if, as I believe, you can put a line through that, he's a very big price today.

Colonel Harry    WINNER! winner
Sun 6th Nov 2022
14:00, Sandown

Colonel Harry is another with a lovely jumps pedigree - by Shirocco out of a sister to Colonel Yaeger,- and he's full-brother to smart Dorabelle. He fell at the last fence when having the race at his mercy on point-to-point debut but made amends with a fast-time win on his next appearance. Runner-up at 2m4f on hurdles debut, I think he will be happier dropping to the minimum trip on soft ground here. Beaten by a good horse that day, he will have improved for the run and I expect him to go very close today.

Isayalittleprayer 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
14:00, Sandown

Isayalittleprayer has been off the track for almost two years. She showed promise in the first of her two hurdles starts and then ran well in a jumpers' bumper. She has had a wind-op but this big mare will probably need the comeback run after her lay-off.

Git Maker 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
13:25, Sandown

Git Maker, a son of top jumps sire Saddler Maker out of a black type winner from a lovely French family, was progressive in Irish points, winning on his final start. He had a great first season over hurdles after joining us, winning three of four. His success at Newcastle on his final start was memorable not just for his defying a double penalty, but as it completed a clean sweep for Jamie Snowden Racing with winners at all the UK's jump courses. He has schooled well at home and should continue to progress over fences this season. I'm sure he will improve for going up in trip on softer ground but this is a nice starting point.  

Hudson De Grugy 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
13:25, Sandown

Hudson De Grugy made great strides last season with two good wins from only four starts. Unsurprisingly, he found yesterday's impressive November Handicap winner Metier much too good at a difference of only 4lb in a valuable handicap hurdle at Lingfield on his season's finale. We're looking forward to getting him back on the track, switching to fences in a tight little novices' handicap.

Vorashann 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
12:50, Sandown

Vorashann returned in good form at Fontwell adding to his already excellent record at that track where he finished off with a victory in early June. Caolin is a very promising young rider who can claim 6lb here so a race-fit Vorashann's chance is there for all to see. One note of caution, though, he did disappoint at this fixture 12 months ago, albeit over two miles.

Cilaos Glace 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
12:50, Sandown

Non-runner

Legal Rights 
Sun 6th Nov 2022
12:50, Sandown

Legal Rights was very progressive last season and probably needed his run the other day at Fakenham.  In any case, two miles aroud that sharp track would hardly have been ideal as he stays well. Niall can take 3lb off in this conditionals' race as he's riding for his own stable and Legal Rights should put up a much better display in this decent race.

Arpina 
Sat 5th Nov 2022
17:30, Chelmsford

Arpina has had a short break after a busy season. She is the best on the all-weather and this track and trip will suit her style of running. She is in good form at home and should be thereabouts in a weak-looking race.

Holy Fire 
Sat 5th Nov 2022
16:30, Chelmsford

Holy Fire is a nice big filly who has taken a bit of time to come to hand. She is finally ready to make her debut and I think we have found a nice opportunity. Callum has ridden her at home so knows her well. She will improve for the run.

Victory House 
Sat 5th Nov 2022
15:30, Chelmsford

Victory House has improved with each run this year and earned a reprieve from the Horses In Training sales last month. He has definitely improved for being gelded and this looks like a decent starting point in handicaps. I'm expecting a nice performance today.

Wynter Wildes 
Sat 5th Nov 2022
13:30, Doncaster

Wynter Wildes has had a wonderful year running consistently all season. I'm not sure she quite saw out the 12 furlongs last time out so we drop back to a stiff ten. She will love the ground but this is obviously a big step up in grade.

Don't Tell Claire 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
19:30, Dundalk

Don't Tell Claire won nicely at Newmarket last time. We're having a shot to try to earn some valuable black type tonight and it will take a career-best effort for her to win. We would be delighted of course if she managed to be placed.

Tara Iti 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
16:00, Fontwell Park

Tara Iti improved all through last season and the signs were good on his recent comeback at Plumpton where he was a creditable second, that the progress is continuing. We are claiming 7lb off him in a tight conest and that could swing the issue his way.

Robbie Dazzler 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
15:45, Hexham

Robie Dazzler came back to form with a good second last time at Ffos Las. The tough three miles should suit, but the big question mark is the soft going as this will be his first run on anything but good. Hoping for the best.

Waikiki Waves 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
15:25, Fontwell Park

Waikiki Waves has been a good servant over the years and has previously won off higher marks than today's. His form did drop off a little towards the end of last season and we will be hoping that his enthusiasm might have been rekindled by his summer break. Each-way chances.

Darebin 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
14:15, Fontwell Park

Darebin returns after his break to the track where he was a winner second time out last season at around this time. He returns off a reduced mark - 8lb lower than the win - and could be dangerous if he isn't just needing it. Value each-way at the price.

Jersey Lady 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
13:50, Exeter

Jersey Lady has been pretty consistent apart from a couple of times early in her career while her last run in June is best ignored as she had had enough for the season and went straight out after for her break. She already has black type and will be a cracking broodmare, although not yet as there are still races to be won with her. Hoping for a good start back today.

Noplacetobe 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
13:23, Hexham

Noplacetobe ran well on debut, finishing third at Worcester. She will have come on plenty for that run having had a hold-up leading into the race. The stiff 2m should be perfect for her for now and the soft ground shouldn't be an issue. A couple of others in here have decent form but she will not be too far away.

Teddy Blue 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
13:05, Fontwell Park

Teddy Blue ran well in all his hurdles starts last season - even his tenth in the Triumph was no disgrace. He might have been a little unlucky on his recent return at Kempton when just beaten after Jamie dropped his whip! Most unlike him! This looks a very good opportunity to get his head in front.

Times Are Blue 
Fri 4th Nov 2022
12:40, Exeter

Times Are Blue won his bumper last spring and then finished second on hurdles debut three weeks ago, still looking green. There is obviously improvement in him but he is a gawky horse by nature so it might take more racing for the penny properly to drop. He is a tall leggy four-year-old who loves decent ground. I won't over-race him and when the proper winter going arrives he'll have a mid-season break. A stayer in the making, he should run a nice race today.

Ornate 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
18:00, Chelmsford

Ornate won nicely last time over course and distance seven days ago, showing plenty of resolution and making the most of being dropped to his lowest ever mark. Penalised 4lb for that, he remains in good order and I am hopeful the old boy can follow up.

Poncho 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
16:12, Newbury

Poncho ran a race full of promise when runner-up on debut at Market Rasen back in the spring. A son of Motivator, he should know much more about it now and hopefully he can get his head in front in what is always a decent bumper.

Villainess 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
16:12, Newbury

Villainess is a daughter of a wonderfully-bred Listed winning dam who has already produced three winners from three runners in three bumpers. Let's hope she can follow in her siblings' footsteps by taking this bumper on debut and from there go on to pick up some black type for her enthusiastic owner-breeder. I don't think this looks the warmest of bumpers for Newbury and hopefully she can run well.

Galop Du Bosc 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
15:49, Ludlow

Galop Du Bosc won well last time in a three-horse affair at Chepstow and looks progressive. We are hoping for a big run but he needs to take another step forward off 7lb higher in this more competitive race.

Trixster

Oj Lifestyle 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
15:30, Chelmsford

Oj Lifestyle ruffled a few feathers when winning on only his second start at 125/1 at Newbury. He ran back soon after at Ascot and while far from disgraced, was a little disappointing. He's has a nice break and makes his all-weather debut today. He has to give 7lb to the Godolphin favourite but should run another good race.

Risk And Roll 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
15:05, Newbury

Risk And Roll seems well after his summer break and did run a good race after an earlier absence this year. If he can carry on in similar vein to how he finishhed off last season he would have a decent each-way chance today.

Braveheart 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
14:40, Ludlow

By Westerner, sire of multiple Grade 1 winning jumpers out of a sister to four Black Type winners, Braveheart was second in a bumper and on hurdle debut too. He didn't have much luck following that initial promise but after he returned this season with an initial third, he then stepped up a gear at Exeter jumping fluently to win impressively. He's up 8lb here so this is a bit tougher, but a reproduction of that form would enable him to go close again as the odds suggest.

Git Maker 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
13:55, Newbury

A son of Saddler Maker out of a Black Type winner from a lovely French family, Git Maker was progressive in Irish points, winning on his final outing. He had a great first season for us over hurdles, winning three of his four starts. When he won his final race at Newcastle, defying his double penalty, he completed the clean sweep of a winner at every UK jumps track for team Jamie Snowden racing. He jumps fences well and should continue to progress over them this season. He wants softer ground so hopefully Newbury will get its share of the rain that is due or else he will not run.

Hansard 
Thu 3rd Nov 2022
13:20, Newbury

Hansard joined us when the Noel Fehilly Racing Syndicates bought him after an impressive all the way bumper win at Ballinrobe in April. The form of that run was franked when Mrs Grimley, the runner-up that day, later made a winning start for Ben Pauling and she runs in a later race for his stable here today. Hansard is a promising type and in a tight little race, could make a good start for us and finish close to the principals.

Heer's Sadie 
Wed 2nd Nov 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Heer's Sadie is becoming very well handicapped but only because she has been disappointing in her last couple of runs. Feedback from her jockeys has been to try a tongue-tie so we will be fitting one this evening. The trip will suit and she has run well at Kempton before. We are just hoping for an improvement on her recent form.

Datsalrightgino    WINNER! winner
Wed 2nd Nov 2022
14:52, Chepstow

Datsalrightgino, by German-trained Arc third I'ts Gino, is out of a three-time winning Group placed mare. He was second in three bumpers before a fruitful novice hurdling campaign last season, including two wins around Cheltenham. He ran well to be second on his chasing debut at Newton Abbot last month and will be sharper for that outing. He should be very competitive here despite its being a tight, warm affair.  

Gleno 
Wed 2nd Nov 2022
12:52, Chepstow

Gleno went through last season without a win although in the second half of his campaign he had a couple of second places at Plumpton. Equally adept over hurdles and chases, he tackles the smaller obstacles on this return to action whereas his last win came over fences over this trip on today's track. He has come down a little in the ratings and gets a further 6lb off for his promising conditional rider. Hopefully he can be competitive on this comeback run.

Endofastorm    WINNER! winner
Tue 1st Nov 2022
17:45, Newcastle

Endofastorm has improved from both her runs and ran an especially nice race last time at Catterick when beaten less than six lengths in fifth. This looks an ordinary race and I think she is capable of running a good race this evening.

Southwold    WINNER! winner
Tue 1st Nov 2022
17:45, Newcastle

Southwold, a home-bred colt by Gleneagles, has taken a while to come to himself but goes nicely enough at home. He should be competitive in a weak-looking race on his debut as long as he doesn't get stage-fright on his first day at school.

Virgo 
Tue 1st Nov 2022
16:05, Redcar

Virgo has been a shade unlucky on his last two starts and as a result has dropped to a very handy mark. We think he will like the soft ground but his jockey is very inexperienced, so we have to hope he has learnt from his last couple of rides.

Valorant 
Tue 1st Nov 2022
16:05, Redcar

Valorant has shown very little since joining us, well beaten in his four starts, all at massive odds. He has been off for some time and we have to hope that he can take advantage of his reduced mark.

Banana 
Tue 1st Nov 2022
14:55, Southwell

Banana has slipped a long way down the ratings all year and she is a full 30lb lower than when she joined the team back in February. There was some encouragement from her recent fifth at Wolverhampton but she needs to find something extra if she is to lose that non-winning record.

Big Wing 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

Only had three runs for us since coming from the Hannon yard. Improved last time to only be beaten 3 3/4 lengths into 5th (of 13) and feel the slight drop in trip here will help. Draw 2 a plus and Kieran O'Neill takes over in the saddle. Place chance after a nice 2 months break.

Kittens Dream 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
18:00, Wolverhampton

Consistent performer of later - hitting the top four in his last 7 races. CD winner here so no track issues and takes his racing well. A race with plenty of chances again, but looks a nice e/w price and should run his race again.

Tequilamockingbird 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
17:20, Kempton Park

Tequilamockingbird has had a great year winning twice and rarely running a bad race all year. Last time out she landed in a very hot race that will work out well (2nd has already won), and I am not convinced we quite saw the trip out. Smaller field over a course and distance she has won over should suit her perfectly. She can go close again

Mudlahhim 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
16:20, Wolverhampton

Fluffed the start the last day - jumped the gates - so can ignore that run. Drawn well in 4 helps here and is a past course winner. Is a bt in-and-out but no shock to see him bounce back as he tries to grab first career win for us. Place chance.

Warranty    WINNER! winner
Mon 31st Oct 2022
16:05, Plumpton

Second the last twice, including once here back in May. Another that Caoilin rides and claims 7lbs on so that helps and is a horse that's gone well off a break in the past. Looks a very open race but stays further than this 2m4f trip and we'll be trying to make good use of that. Each-way chance.

Dusky Days 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
16:05, Plumpton

A full brother to the good stayer, Fontsanta.  He is out of a half-sister to useful bumper/2m-2m1f hurdle winner Dusky Lord who herself was out of a sister to high-class jumper Deep Sensation.  Dusky Days won a bumper on his racecourse debut and was then 4th in a Listed bumper at Ascot. He finished last season with two 2nds over hurdles, and ran to a similar level of form when 3rd on seasonal debut.  This step up in trip on handicap debut should help him, as will the tongue tie....so let's hope he can get back into the winners enclosure.

Oscarsman 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
16:05, Plumpton

Has been off the track for two years so entitled to need this, though fit enough to run a reasonable race. Won over course and distance and this race is easier than what he has been contesting but really just hoping for a nice comeback run.

Hit The Rocks 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
15:30, Plumpton

Ran well for much of the way last time at Fontwell for today's jockey Caoilin Quinn, who rides again. Can claim a handy 7lbs too and is 2lbs lower in the ratings. Has run well at this track too in the past and gets into this better race with only 10-7 to carry - less the jockey's claim and that's a featherweight of only 10st. Each-way.

Privatory 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
15:30, Plumpton

Good winner on debut for us last season at Sandown and even though he didn't quite progress as we liked after was highly-tried last time in a Class 3 race. Has had a good summer to get stronger and returns on a 2lbs lower mark in an easier race. We feel there is a lot more to come from this 4 year-old and not to worried about the lay-off as been working well at home and has gone well fresh in the past too.

Sea The Clouds 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
15:10, Hereford

Out of an unraced half-sister to the Group 2 winner over 1m, Echo Of Light, and Listed 1m4f winner Akarem.  Sea the Clouds is a half-brother to Contented who has won over hurdles and fences, and a full brother to My Mate Mozzie who developed into a Graded novice hurdler.  Sea the Clouds was placed in three bumpers last season, and won a bumper on his seasonal return. He followed up with an improved display when winning on his hurdling debut at Newton Abbot last month, and can defy a penalty this autumn.  This looks a tight race, but he has improved for his hurdling debut, and should be there or thereabouts.

Between The Waters 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
14:55, Plumpton

Was very consistent in his younger days before finally getting his head in front and then won three chases in relatively quick succession.  Although he has struggled off higher marks, he slipped back to an attractive mark again and won well last time out.  Up 3lbs for that, he should go well again here, but isn't getting any younger....

Counteract 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
14:55, Plumpton

A burly type of horse who definitely needed the race last time, this trip is slightly on the short side for him nowadays, albeit he has won over course and distance previously, though that was a much weaker race.

Royaume Uni 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
14:20, Plumpton

Needed the run last time at Goodwood after 6 months off. Course winner here and back over hurdles in a race that he looks to have every chance in. Had been running well at the end of last season in better races and that last spin on the flat should have him spot-on for this. Gordon horse to beat, but should run well.

Dutugamunu 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:52, Kempton Park

Can ignore the last run as was in a higher grade, on the grass and in a amateur riders' race. Back on the AW here today will help and eased back into a Class 6. Better form is on the AW tracks and we'd have an e/w chance here outside the unexposed Boughey horse - Banbrook Boy.

Recuerdame 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:52, Kempton Park

Regular at this time of year and often competitive in these type of races. Ran well on return here over slightly shorter after a lengthy break and sure to be fitter today. Wide draw no help but no surprise if he gets involved, though needs plenty of pace.

Bal Amie 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:45, Plumpton

Arnie ran ok on his debut for us at Huntingdon earlier this month, he finished second to a nice type despite not being particularly well handicapped on his Jersey form.
Arnie jumped well on that occasion and his schooling at home has always been very good.
Arnie is a good looking horse, who is good to ride at home.
Havanella 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:25, Hereford

Nellie has been a work in progress.
She was very gassy in her races last season so we had to drop her back in trip to get her to settle yet she’s a staying mare so we just had to bite the bullet and teach her with a view to the future.
Nellie has been much more relaxed at home this season but obviously the proof will be on a racecourse, she’s schooled very well and I’m hoping the fences give her a focus so she can get into a rhythm and not be too keen.
Nellie is a sweet mare to deal with, she very honest and just wants to please.
Roman Tempest 
Mon 31st Oct 2022

First go in a handicap and looks like this trip and further will suit. Still a bit immature but should progress now and no surprise if he runs better than his odds suggest.

Heaven Smart 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:15, Plumpton

Former Pointer that is having his debut under rules. Fell when last time out so needs to bounce back from that but that's why we are starting him off over hurdles here. Jamie rides and should not be far away with an each-way chance away from the Tizzard runner too. Hoping he's one to watch regardless of this today though.

Im Digby 
Mon 31st Oct 2022
13:15, Plumpton

Digby is relatively new to me having come over recently from Jersey where he was been trained by Alyson Malzard last summer.
Digby has won on the flat and been placed numerous times, this will be his first hurdle race.
Digby has thoroughly enjoyed his schooling and he has taken to it like a duck to water, this will be a look and see mission to find out what we do with him next.
Digby is a busy horse at home but to give him a chance it’s all fairly new to him yet.

By Walk In The Park, out of a black-type winning sister to the Cheltenham Festival winner, Son Of Flicka. This filly is a half-sister to 3 winners including Bandit Country and the 135 rated Granny Biddy.  She was 2nd in three bumpers, and looks like she has a future.  She was pretty green and race rusty on seasonal and hurdling debut, and needs to brush up on her hurdling.  I am sure she has ability, so should step forward here and she has place claims here.

Age Of Sail 
Sun 30th Oct 2022
14:48, Huntingdon

Age Of Sail has had two runs over hurdles so far and has been beaten both times by Alan King runners. Admiralty House had two lengths in hand of him at Kempton two weeks ago and has to concede him 7lb today. We go there with high hopes of making it third time lucky.

Upton Road 
Sun 30th Oct 2022
14:30, Carlisle

Upton Road has had his share of injury problems but showed on the one start we could get into him last season that he retains all his ability. This is not the ideal race for him but he's a horse with few options. Ground and trip are fine but he has plenty to find with all of these.

Regarde 
Sun 30th Oct 2022
12:50, Carlisle

Regarde, by Kapgarde, is out of a half-sister to a couple of winners in France and from the family of The New One. Placed in Irish points as a four-year-old for Colin Bowe, his form took a big step up when winning one this spring. He's a strapping individual and looks an exciting recruit to our team. He is working well, jumps superbly and this looks an ideal starting point. He shouldn't be far away.

Pop Favorite 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

Pop Favorite had not made much of an impact in his runs for the stable unttil shaping with much more promise last time. Off slowly from the gate, he stayed on well over a furlong shorter than today's trip around here finishing third. A dual winner before joining us, it seems he may just be running into form. Each-way chances.

Visibility 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Visibility has been running well here lately, finishing third over a furlong more than tonight's race and last time a winner at 7f (a furlong and a half shorter). Up 3lb for his win nine days ago, Visibility has his winning rider Kieran O'Neill back on board. They have a great chance of following up from the inside draw.

The Mouse King 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
17:08, Newmarket

The Mouse King has had a good season but he has gone up the handicap in the process. He takes his chance here and will like the easy ground but he is probably better on all-weather.

Justcallmepete 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
17:08, Newmarket

Justcallmepete has lost his way after some good early-season runs. If he handles the ground and the step up in trip he would have a chance if back to his best. We'll find out this afternoon!

Scrum Diddly 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
17:03, Ascot

Scrum Diddly had two runs in Irish points, falling when still in contention in the first and then finishing a good third in his most recent after which we bought him. He is very good over his hurdles and as with all my bumper horses he has not been hard trained. Win or lose today he will go hurdling next time.

Odins Quest 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
17:03, Ascot

Non-runner

Ashfield Paddy 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
16:45, Wetherby

We picked up Ashfield Paddy from the Jonjo O'Neill yard for what looks a bargain price and hopefully he can start to show that impression was correct. A winner of his final start for Jonjo just before the sale, he has a big weight for this comeback run, but the talented Beau Morgan takes off 7lb. Looking forward to seeing him run.

Invincible Nao 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
15:50, Ascot

Invincible Nao already has experience and winning hurdles form, successful in an 18k to the winner race by a wide margin at Auteuil in April. He was bought soon after and undoubtedly looks a nice prospect, but the 10lb penalty incurred for the victory is something to worry about. Interesting newcomer.

Hector Jaguen 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
15:50, Ascot

We run two horses new to the stable in this novice hurdle and Hector Jaguen is the less precocious of the pair, although he ran his best race in Irish points in the last of them. He will probably be better when trying a longer trip.

Full Back 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
15:15, Ascot

Full Back more than paid his way last season with a nice win at Cheltenham on New Year's Day and then stepping up with a good second to Yala Enki over a longer trip at Taunton. Unplaced at the Festival after that, he has been off since and may well be better for this comeback run. We are looking forward to a good season in decent staying chases.

Shahbaz    WINNER! winner
Sat 29th Oct 2022
14:48, Newmarket

Shahbaz has had a great year but should have won a race. Conditions should suit him perfectly and I think he will handle the track. He seems in great order at home.

Nassalam 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
14:40, Ascot

Nassalam was a decent hurdler two seasons back and made an instant impact winning a novice handicap chase on this track on this day last year. He won a Grade 2 next time at Newbury unchallenged by 30 lengths  and ended the year with three wins and two seconds from five runs. Hopefully he will be ready to start off with a bold showing in this very hot handicap chase.

Kotmask 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
14:05, Ascot

French import Kotmask made a good start with wins in juvenile hurdles either side of the New Year but was not ready when pitched into handicap company. He sits at the bottom of this decent race and will be an outsider. We are hoping he can show he deserves to run in this type of company by putting up a decent show.

Goshen 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
13:30, Ascot

Goshen had a great season's hurdling, picking up another two important prizes at Sandown (Listed) and then the Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton. He had a nice warm-up on the flat at Goodwood this month, showing all his old ability and now makes his debut over fences. His schooling has been very exciting and while his three opponents all have plenty of ability, we hope he can translate his hurdling ability to fences. 

Zanagor 
Sat 29th Oct 2022
13:03, Newmarket

Zanagor is a filly we like. Her work has been good and she is ready for the run. She will be worth following next year but will outrun her odds today.

Blazer Two 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
20:15, Southwell

Been a frustrating horse has has the ability in a race like this but has just one win from 17 to his name, which came back in July. Been runner-up 5 times as well and wasn't beaten far (5th) here the last day. A repeat of that run would give him an e/w chance.

Perseverants 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
19:15, Southwell

Fair form in France, but is yet to show that here from opening two runs for us. Hoping the switch to the AW will help but hard to get too excited at the moment until we see more.

Medrara 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
18:45, Southwell

Medrara was bought cheaply out of Roger Varians yard and we have taken our time with him. He is due a handicap mark after the race today so life will become easier then. We like him but he is a bit of a project

Far Horizon 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
18:15, Southwell

Pleasing run the last day at Lingfield after a break when 5th of 9. Also wasn't the best away that day so with a better start that will help. The Crisford and Prescott horses respected but with that last run coming off a wind op too then hopeful for a bit more today. Each-way.

Southwold 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
18:15, Southwell

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner
Fri 28th Oct 2022
17:45, Southwell

Down the field at Redcar in the week - 102nd race here today and back at Southwell where he's a course winner. Up in grade here to give him just 8-8 in weight to carry, which makes him dangerous but a bit of an in-and-out performer these days.

Let Me Entertain U 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
16:15, Uttoxeter

Still to win over hurdles from 9 starts and so we sent him back Pointing earlier this year to get some confidence back and he won back in April. Also had a wind op over the summer and returns in the right race. Luca rides to take off 3lbs too and we'd be hopeful of a nice e/w showing here.

Obsessedwithyou    WINNER! winner
Fri 28th Oct 2022
16:05, Wetherby

By a son of Monsun called Bathyrhon (the sire of Compiegne Grade 3 winner Bathyscaphe and Isatis De L'Ecu, a Grade 1 winner at Merano), out of a Sleeping Car mare who won twice.  This filly is a full sister to Calipsa who won a hurdle race by 10 lengths on her racecourse debut.  She was in pre-training last season, and looks tailor made for these new Junior National Hunt Development Hurdle Races.  Tricky to evaluate the opposition, but this filly shouldn't be too far away on this her racecourse debut.  She will be for sale afterwards....

Generous Day 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
15:05, Uttoxeter

Back from a fair break of 306 days but we are starting him back over hurdles today as his mark is a lot lower - 14lbs - than over fences. Also eased into a Class 5 here will help and although sure to improve for this would be dangerous to rule out if getting into a nice stride up top. Each-way. 

Star Of Sussex 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
14:05, Newmarket

Nice colt by Sea The Stars but debut run here today and is taking on a few that have already had runs on the track. Nice to get going with him and will learn a lot, but Ryan's mount for the Hills yard - Bodorgan - looks the call here.

Quizlet 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
14:05, Newmarket

Quizlet ran ok on debut at Newcastle and hopefully he has learnt from that run and improved a bit. We think he will like the soft ground and I don’t have a problem with the track for him. His future might lie in handicaps though

Park This One 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
13:55, Uttoxeter

By Walk In The Park and is out of an unraced sister to the Listed and five-time winner Santia (officially rated 139) and Lord Over who was 3rd in the Champion Bumper at Punchestown. Park This One arrived with us after winning an English Point-to-Point. He was 2nd on his rules debut and progressed to win a bumper impressively at Exeter. He looks a really promising horse to go novice hurdling with this winter.  He jumps well, stays well, and should be competitive here, but will obviously improve for the seasonal debut.

Macho Sun 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
13:30, Newmarket

Macho Sun is having his third run here for a handicap mark, he ran well last time over 1m2f but this 7f will probably be too sharp for him, we had to run in this because no other suitable races on the turf. He will be a nice horse for next year.

Alpha Crucis    WINNER! winner
Fri 28th Oct 2022
13:30, Newmarket

No great shakes so far after two runs and unlikely to be winning this, but will get a handicap mark after today and then will be a lot more competitive.

I Am Gonna Be 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
13:20, Uttoxeter

NH Flat winner at Newcastle back in March but highly-tried last time at Cheltenham last time in a decent race there in April. Has done well over the summer and been readied for this first run over hurdles. Looks a good race for her to start off and although hard to know about the others and a lot of lightly-raced runners, not without a chance.

Spirit Of Breeze 
Fri 28th Oct 2022
13:00, Newmarket

Goes without saying a tall order against the Hannon horse in this 3 runner race but hoping we can pick up second place after a promising debut run at Newbury. Andrea Atzeni rides and with the expected improvement we'd be disappointed if he's not taking silver here.

Ornate    WINNER! winner
Thu 27th Oct 2022
20:00, Chelmsford

In good form and not beaten far the last day at Newcastle - down another 3lbs here and now career-low mark for this 100+ once rated sprinter. Of course, not getting younger but still has plenty of pace for races of this grade. Well drawn in 4 and Phil Dennis knows the horse well. Dangerous to rule out, each-way chance.

Celestial Point 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
19:30, Chelmsford

Back to a mile will suit after not really getting home over 1m2f last time at Brighton and is 3lbs lower this time too. Only 4 runs on the AW (no wins) so should be more to come, but another of ours today drawn wide (13), which isn't ideal. Tom Queally rides.

Anificas Beauty 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
18:00, Chelmsford

CD winner but that came just over a year ago and hasn't really moved on after that as we'd hoped. Down again in the handicap though helps and a small break since last time too, while this is only her third run for us after being with Gay Kelleway before. A bit better last time over 5f at Lingers was a good sign and hopeful the step up to 6f will help. Negative is the wide draw in 12 though so might need a bit of luck from there. Small e/w.

Boys Of Wexford 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
17:00, Stratford upon Avon

Back from a break and been pulled up the last twice so a bit to answer at the moment. On a plus, is certainly capable of better and is down another 5lbs here and has only had 6 career runs, but would like to see more on the track first.

Ballycorr 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
16:25, Stratford upon Avon

One of two runners on the day for us and our better chance of getting something. Nice winner at Sedgefield back in May but struggled the last day at Cartmel. So we gave him a break and a wind op over the summer, which we feel will help. Stays further than this trip, but on first run back this 2m6f distance looks ideal. Likely to improve for this but would still have a small e/w chance.

Heads Or Harps 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
15:40, Worcester

Nice horse that won his Point last time out in April well. First run back and under rules today but has been doing well and excited to get going with him. Trip and soft ground fine and should not be far away.

Harry Dunlop
Sea Of Charm 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
15:25, Lingfield

Consistent performer in lower-graded handicaps but in at the deep end today in a Listed race. Obviously a lot to find on these terms at the weights being rated 67 and taking on 100 rated horses, but is fit and well and is a course winner so hoping she might be able to get by a few in the race if improving a bit.

Icare Grandchamp 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
15:05, Worcester

Nice horse that came to us from France and is owned by Harry Redknapp. Will love the softer ground and has schooled well since coming to us. Putting the hood on today as well to help him get on with the job and focus at the hurdles, but even though likely to improve for the run after 225 days off has been doing plenty and not without a place chance, with the Jonjo horse the main player. Hopeful this is one to note going forward though.

Evening Story 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
14:50, Lingfield

Evening Story was green on debut but started getting the hang of it late on. She should take a step forward here.

Atwixaday 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
14:15, Lingfield

No great shakes as yet after running down the field in his last two races at Brighton. But will get a handicap mark today for this and that will help going forward so really just looking for more experience here.

Copperfasten    WINNER! winner
Thu 27th Oct 2022
14:05, Stratford upon Avon

Winning Pointer but has only had two runs under rules. Needed the run back the last day at Bangor so will be better this time and the longer trip will help. Still work in progress though but one step nearer getting a mark.

Sir Sedric 
Thu 27th Oct 2022
13:40, Lingfield

Despite running 9th of 12 last time was actually only beaten just under 3 lengths. Was taken wide that day which didn't help and so with a bit more luck today then hopeful of better. Nice draw in 4 and Callum Hutchinson a plus in the saddle. Starting to look well-handicapped off 59 too having been as high as 72 at the start of the year. Each-way with the step back to 7f a help too (was only beaten a length over this trip in Aug here).

Moonis 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Seventh the last day at Windsor but was actually only beaten 2 1/2 lengths. Up to 1m4f here will help too as stayed on well over 1m2f the last day and we also feel the cheekpieces on today for the first time will help him settle after looking not the most straightforward. Has time on his side though and we'd like to think he'll have an nice e/w chance here.

La Rav    WINNER! winner
Wed 26th Oct 2022
19:00, Kempton Park

Looks our better chance on the day after running some nice races recently without getting his head in front. Robert Havlin booked to ride too and handicapper has helped by dropping him a pound from last time too. Draw 3 helps and hopeful of a very good run.

Dynakite 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
18:30, Kempton Park

Had a lot of weight the last day at Kempton in a Class 6 so is dropping back into a Class 5 here with less weight. CD winner here though and a good draw in 4 help, plus 3lbs lower this time. Back up to a mile will help and even though needs to bounce back we'd not be shocked to see a better run here.

Glam Puss 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:55, Kempton Park

Makes her debut, shows a bit at home and this doesn’t look a deep contest. She’s sure to improve for the experience and how she fares is going to come down to how she takes her first day at the races.

Police Academy 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:30, Chepstow

Police Academy won a point to point in Ireland before being bought by the Million In Mind syndicate.
When Police Academy first arrived with us she was very tricky to ride, she tried to bolt on the gallops and it took a good while to get her to relax. We put a hood on her and then it just took patience and a steely nerve at times.
She was initially ridden by Tayla Wenn and then Amy Deans took over when Tayla returned to NZ in September, both girls have done a great job with her and I’m happy with her demeanour now.
Police Academy has schooled very well at home but I’m giving her a spin in a bumper today just to see how she takes the whole experience.
Thyme N Tyde 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:30, Chepstow

Nice filly that is making his debut here today in a bumper. Knows her job and has been doing plenty of work but will learn a lot from the experience. Tom will help in the saddle, but certainly one to note for the future.

Aira Force 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:20, Kempton Park

Aira Force has progressed all season and won nicely last time, steps up in class but should remain competitive.

Parikarma 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:05, Nottingham

Been in great order since coming to us from the Ed Dunlop yard - winning her last two. Up another 3lbs from her recent win at Brighton and even though much softer ground today no reason why it won't suit. Wide draw the slight negative but hard to fault her form at the moment and should have every chance again.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:05, Nottingham

Capable performer on his day - winning 5 times from 57 runs. The last of those wins came back in May 22 and is back to that winning mark too. Matthew Ennis a decent rider for these amateur riders' races and capable of having a small e/w chance, but no matter what will improve for the run after 3 months off.

Firewater 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
17:05, Nottingham

CD winner that continues to drop down the ratings and is looking on a fair mark at the moment (46) after being rated in the 60's at the start of this year. 7lbs claimer also booked for this apprentice race and the horse seems well after a break. Hoping the return to this track will suit and not without an e/w chance.

Seneca Chief 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
16:50, Kempton Park

Getting on a bit and hasn’t quite got home over six in the past but is a more relaxed horse these days so fingers crossed he can last out.

Saligo Bay 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
16:45, Fakenham

Second runner in the race for us and a consistent hurdler that's only been out of the first two from 6 runs. Third the last day on the flat so blew away the cobwebs for this return run over hurdles and looks to have a great chance of giving the favourite something to think about and looks one of our best chances on the day.

Legal Rights 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
16:45, Fakenham

Consistent hurdler that is back after a summer break. Last seen running second at Plumpton back in March and is here off the same mark. Niall takes off 3lbs and stays further than this 2m trip. Only niggle might be the sharp track over this distance but if able to keep tabs on them his stamina will help.

Coastguard Station    WINNER! winner
Wed 26th Oct 2022
16:45, Fakenham

Won well at Southwell two runs back but flopped as favourite the last day at Southwell. Ran a bit too free that day so we gave him a break to get over it. We think this front runners track will suit as he also likes to get on with things and Ben Godfrey rides this time to take off a handy 3lbs. A better race though so more needed and the Watson horse feared, but hopeful the break has done him good and would have an e/w chance.

Howdilyoudo 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
15:35, Fakenham

Out of a half-sister to the useful winner Whodoyouthink and to Whatuthink (who was third in the Irish National); from the family of Glens Music.  This Presenting filly was placed in bumpers and novice hurdles, before winning two handicap hurdles last summer. She won on chase debut but has struggled a bit since.  There is decent prize money here, and only the 4 runners, so hopefully she can end her season with a placed effort at worst here!

Milldam 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
14:25, Fakenham

By Martaline out of a French winning half-sister to the very useful 2m1f-2m4f hurdle and chase winner Polidam and Listed-placed chase winner Dayladam.  Milldam was placed in all three starts over hurdles in France, and arrived here mid-way through last season.  He was mid-field in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at the Festival in March, and remains a novice which could be useful in the future. This looks a bit trappy, but providing there is cut in the ground, then I think he might be the one to beat.

Iskar Dairy 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
14:25, Fakenham

Second runner in the race for us and very similar name too! This one has shown the better form on the track after some fair runs in bumpers but just got a bit tired in the closing stages on hurdles debut at Kempton back in May. Had the summer to get stronger and more schooling so hopeful of a better run here and Jamie rides this one.

Issar Dairy 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
14:25, Fakenham

French horse that has had two runs for us and shown little so far. Will get a handicap mark after today though and needs to brush up his jumping a bit. Still has time on his hands and will probably benefit from a bit of cut in the ground in the near future too. Niall rides to claim 3lbs.

Sonification 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
14:00, Chepstow

Sonification won his only outing to date a bumper here in the spring, he got to the front a long way from home that day and he galloped all the way to the line in the style of a proper stayer.
Sonification has schooled nicely at home and whilst he will get further than this it’s a good starting point.
Key Factor 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
14:00, Chepstow

Pointer that's having his first run for the yard today under rules. Work in progress though and likely to be better once handicapped.

Colombidea 
Wed 26th Oct 2022
13:35, Nottingham

Colombidea has run well twice for the yard and takes a significant drop in grade today. We think she will like the track and ground and hope that she is better than her current mark. Callum Shepherd should suit her well

Rampage 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
19:30, Newcastle

Frustratingly missed a good chunk of the season with a tooth infection. Returns after the break, could run at a lower level but he goes to the sales on Thursday and this was about the only option left.

Broomy Law 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
19:30, Newcastle

14 races without a win and well back the last day at Wolves. Will be better for that off a break and 4lbs lower here and we feel he'll enjoy the drop back in trip here - hasn't seemed to stay 1m4f the last twice. No shock to see a bit better here but would like to see a bit more on the track before being more confident.

Lucky Beggar 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
17:30, Catterick

Won his 9th career run on his 111th start last time at Nottingham so showed he's still enjoying his racing. Up just 3lbs for that and managed to get Graham Lee to ride again. Has come out of the race well and still very well weighted, so hopeful he can go close to following up.

Peaky Boy 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
17:10, Bangor

Lovely former Point winner in Ireland that is having his debut under rules today in a NH Flat race. Expected to be fit enough (done plenty of work) and the horses overall are running well at the moment. Of course, in races like this it's hard to know about the others in the race being very lightly-raced but we are happy with our horse and should be going well here with the trip, ground and track all fine. Tom rides.

Dj Pete    WINNER! winner
Tue 25th Oct 2022
16:40, Bangor

Pete ran very green in his only outing to date, a bumper at Southwell when finishing fourth.
He travelled behind the bridle that day and the penny didn’t really drop until he passed the line where Alfie couldn’t pull him up.
Pete has done plenty of schooling and his jumping is good, he’s running here for a bit more experience before going down the hurdling route this winter.
Pete is very laid back as a person but he is now much more forward going on the gallops. He’s basically good to ride but he can be a boy when he’s fresh.
Doc Mccoy 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
16:40, Bangor

Tricky Trickster (officially rated 152).  Interestingly, Doc McCoy is bred on the same Getaway/Oscar cross as Sporting John (officially rated 153). Doc McCoy was a deeply impressive winner of a maiden Point-to-Point on his debut where he won by 20 lengths in a time that was 6.5 seconds quicker than any of the other three maidens on the card.  He works nicely at home, and could be quite smart.  Obviously, we've not been working on the grass yet, but he goes well, and should be capable of winning a bumper.

Seven Brothers 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
16:30, Catterick

Ran well to be a close third at Windsor two runs back. Didn't enjoy the AW at Newcastle last time so the switch back to the grass will suit. Dropped in grade slightly here too and gets in here off the same mark as his third two starts ago. Would have a decent e/w chance if back to that level in this easier race.

Kalpaga 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
16:20, Chepstow

Another runner that's come to us from France - has only had three career runs and just one in this country when we pitched her into a decent NH Flat race at Cheltenham back in April. Schooled well over hurdles since and makes her debut over the smaller obstacles today. Should go well, but we'll just be happy with a solid first run here and build from there.

Margarets Legacy 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
15:45, Chepstow

Both career wins came over hurdles when trained in France - came to us back in January from France and we've been schooling him over fences since. Might have liked it a bit softer with his best form coming with give underfoot in France, but this looks a nice place to start him off. Likely to improve to the run too after 339 days away from the track, but a horse we feel will be winning especially when the rain comes.

Shantou Sunset 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
14:35, Chepstow

First run for us after coming from the Philip Hobbs yard. Last seen winning in May at Stratford but is now with Optimum Racing and us. Still only 8 and a nice recruit to the yard and is only 5lbs higher than last time. We'll find out a bit more about her here but has settled in well and hopeful she'll be winning more races for us. On a plus, has also won off a break in the past, which in encouraging. Each-way chance.

Makety 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
14:35, Chepstow

Makety has been a fairly consistent performer at her own level, she is a filly that looked quite decent as a youngster but nothing ever seemed to go her way … if it wasn’t for bad luck she’d have had no luck at all.
She’s been chasing until her most recent run and she’s a very good jumper, we’ve reverted to hurdles because of the opportunities and we’re trying a longer trip today, which should suit.
Animal 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
14:20, Bangor

Ran well last season over fences and was really starting to gain his confidence jumping. Trip and going fine and hoping he can reach the frame here on his reappearance run.

Duke Of Firenze 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
14:10, Catterick

130th career run here today for the Duke at the age of 13. CD winner here at the track helps and a nice draw in 2 as well. Has dropped to a low mark of jusr 53, was as high as 107 in his prime. But is still enjoying his racing and is well at home so certainly can't rule out back into a Class 6 and after a small break.

Imperial Hope 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
13:45, Bangor

Impy had a non event season last winter, he was far too keen first time out and then on his second outing he ran very flat at a time my horses were not firing so it’s probably best to ignore both outings.
Unfortunately Imperial Hope is prone to be very keen in his races, he ran away with Brendan when winning his bumper at Doncaster on his first outing for us, it turned out to be a race that wasn’t the strongest so he still won despite this.
I’m hoping that fences give him something to think about and make him concentrate on jumping and not being too keen.
Imperial Hope has done plenty of schooling and he has been very good at home.
Superstylin 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
13:25, Chepstow

Tall, rangy horse, much more of a chaser than a hurdling type. Ran in a decent bumper at Haydock last season, purely as it was the only place with some give in the ground. Ran him from the front that day, which in hindsight he may have been better held up. Really looking for a nice introduction to hurdles today and wanting to make sure he settles. Does have ability but will likely need a bit of time.

Trevada 
Tue 25th Oct 2022
12:55, Chepstow

Trevada finished a good second on his last outing over hurdles at Uttoxeter in May having run too keen in his previous race at Hereford which was his debut over obstacles.
Trevada is a big strong horse who is a half brother to Tarada, who I trained for Trevor Hemmings, he can get a bit gassy at times and I hope he knuckles down and concentrates today because he has plenty of ability.
Dark Shot 
Mon 24th Oct 2022
17:25, Redcar

101st career run here today - last win came around this time of the year 12 months ago and off a 10lbs higher mark so certainly can't rule out here despite his advancing years. Has also run well at Redcar in the past and draw 5 looks perfect. Not the most consistent these days so does need to bounce back from four average runs after a top third at Goodwood in July, but off this career-low mark can't rule out. Each-way.

Perseverants 
Mon 24th Oct 2022
15:40, Redcar

We are still finding out about this horse after coming over from France. Down the field on debut at York earlier this month and needed the run that day, while it was in a better race. Eased into a Class 3 helps and softer ground will pose no issues, but really just be happy with a better showing on this occasion.

Stintino Sunset    WINNER! winner
Mon 24th Oct 2022
14:20, Leicester

Stintino Sunset ran well last run to finish a good fourth dropped a couple of pounds for that run so meets the favourite on 6lb better terms. Trip and ground will suit, we have added cheek pieces just to help her concentrate, she should have an e/w chance.

American Rose 
Mon 24th Oct 2022
13:50, Leicester

Nice well bred filly having her first run today. Ground a big factor and Rhys Clutterbuck will need to keep hold of her head until meeting the stiff pull to the line. Unlikely to trouble the market leaders but
shown enough to suggest a good run.

Fen Tiger    WINNER! winner
Mon 24th Oct 2022
13:20, Leicester

Was unlucky last week to bump into an improving three year old. He seems to have come out of the race well but has never backed up so quickly, this does seem a good opportunity for him and we are running out of options on the soft ground that he needs. Fred Gordon good value as he still qualifies for the race. We are hopeful that he will go close again.

Colonial Empire 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
16:40, Ffos Las

Colonial Empire put in a much better run last time out at Uttoxeter after a long break. We are hoping he can take another step forward today as we believe he is a horse going in the right direction. The expected solid run should give him a good chance of a place.

Bells Of Rutland 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
16:40, Ffos Las

Bells Of Rutland needs to take a huge step forward to get involved but he did show glimmers of ability last year. He is a horse that works extremely well at home - far beyond his very low rating - and we just hope it will all click into place one day.

Jean Genie 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
16:03, Ffos Las

While Jean Genie has never managed a win he is always in the mix and surely will get his deserved victory before long. We are hoping conditions will be perfect today and the drop in class should help him. Strong chance.

Faitque De Lisle    WINNER! winner
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
16:03, Ffos Las

We were delighted with Faitque De Lisle's comeback third earlier this month at Stratford when he just tired in the closing stages. He will be straighter today and with the team in good form we have to be hopeful he can open his winning account.

Airtothethrone 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
14:55, Ffos Las

Airtothethrone made a good start last year and returns fit and well but in a very competitive race. He might have place claims if all went to plan but he is sure to improve for today's outing after his long layoff.

Do Your Job 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
14:40, Aintree

Do Your Job had a great year in high-class novices last season and I don't think the handicapper reacted at all harshly to his last impressive Grade 2 win at the Ayr Scottish National meeting. He's in great form for this comeback and I'm excited to see where he fits with these top-grade experienced chasers.

Soldier Of Destiny 
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
14:40, Aintree

Soldier Of Destiny is a well-connected Presenting gelding and started out placed in an Irish point and second in a bumper. Lacklustre initially over hurdles, he proved a revelation over fences and won decent novice handicaps at Ffos Las and Haydock. He looks to have strengthened for his summer break and this has been the plan since he came back in. He is 2lb out of the handicap today but is an unexposed young horse with a nice future and I'd like to think he can go well here.

GA Law    WINNER! winner
Sun 23rd Oct 2022
14:40, Aintree

We also run GA Law in the Old Roan Chase and this half-brother to six winners was placed in a Grade 1 hurdle two seasons back. A winner on debut over hurdles in France before joining us, we gave him time to acclimatise. We exploited the four-year-old allowance and he hit the ground running in novice chases, winning three on the bounce including the Grade 2 Rising Stars at Wincanton. Later he was placed in both the Grade 1 Henry VIII and Grade 2 Pendil but then picked up an injury before his target at Aintree 2021. That has kept him off until now but he has come back bigger and stronger and has done plenty of work. He's been off for 600 days, so should come on for this, but he is weighted to run very well.

Tapley 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
17:00, Cheltenham

Tapley probably wasn't quite getting home in his points and his pedigree isn't hugely about stamina. He stuck it out very well though in an evenly-run bumper at Fontwell and is entitled to have come on a bit for that. This is hugely competitive so he would need to improve to win it. That said, he has similar form to most of these barring two or three, so looks a value each-way bet at the price.

Mrs Meader    WINNER! winner
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:50, Newbury

Mrs Meader loves it here at Newbury, as she showed when winning impressively earlier in the summer. She is not an easy ride but Ross gets on so well with her. She runs best fresh so the break between the last race and today is good. With luck in running we hope she can be thereabouts.

Capricorn Prince 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:50, Newbury

We run four in this amateur riders' handicap and all four are returning from having time off. Capricorn Prince is the only one of the quartet to have run in 2022 and he had a successful time on all-weather over the winter, last running in early spring. He has a very capable rider in Freddie Mitchell and he will probably be our best chance.

Isayalittleprayer 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:50, Newbury

Isayalittleprayer returns after 21 months off the track and was last seen finishing second in a jumpers' bumper having run twice in juvenile hurdles, with an okay third in the first of them. She has the vastly-experienced David Dunsdon to help her. Interesting.

Vision Clear 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:50, Newbury

Vision Clear is also on the comeback trail having been absent since falling when odds-on for a selling hurdle in November last year. He has not won a race for a long time and we will be hoping he shows some encouragement for what we hope will be a winter campaign.

Tenfold 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:50, Newbury

Tenfold joined us from Martyn Meade in December 2020 with a rating of 80. He ran once on the flat for us, dropped to 77 and finishing a fair fifth and was then pulled up in his one hurdle race and has been absent since. the handicapper has given him a chance dropped to 69 but almost two years off is a long time.

Star Zinc 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:45, Doncaster

Star Zinc also loves soft ground. Donny should suit him and Callum has ridden him at home. He has more than enough ability to win a race of this nature.

Vanity Affair 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
16:15, Newbury

Vanity Affair cannot have the ground soft enough. The track will really suit him and the drop to ten furlongs should work well. We will ride him positively and his low weight should be a big plus in those circumstances. He is out of the handicap but with so much in his favour that wouldn't worry me too much.

Botox Has    WINNER! winner
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
15:50, Cheltenham

Botax Has ran well in two three-mile handicaps at the same November and December meetings last year when Editeur Du Gote was a winner and meets a number of former adversaries again today. He wound up his season with a slightly unpredictable victory over a shorter trip in a Grade 2 handicap at Fontwell but while it was worth £51k to the winner, his mark was virtually untouched by the handicapper. A typically big field, but he should remain very competitive off his mark.

Kansas City Chief 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
15:50, Cheltenham

Kansas City Chief ran with credit on stable debut at Wetherby ten days ago, jumping fantastically well and then after going for his girths in the straight, he ran on again from the last flight. He's a sprightly 13-year-old and has come out of the race really well. Vic rides him and pretty much trains him, and I rely totally on her feedback. A star of a horse to deal with, he can be a bit of a boy on the gallops but is a real professional and I'm looking forward to the run today.

Editeur Du Gite    WINNER! winner
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
15:15, Cheltenham

Editeur Du Gite has a tremendous record on this track and he won twice impressively here under today's rider in November and December last year. Raised to this mark, he ran another great race under Jamie when fourth at the Festival behind Global Citisen. He meets some in-form rivals on this return and might be challenged early for the lead he enjoys by the Irish mare Effernock Fizz but I would expect his superior jumping to deal effectively with her. Very hopeful he con continue the love affair with Cheltenham.

Charming Lily 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
14:55, Newbury

Charming Lily has shown promise on both her starts at Kempton. Soft ground is an unknown for her but we are hopeful of a nice run from the daughter of Charm Spirit.

Eva's Oskar 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
14:48, Kelso

Eva's Oskar is in great form and runs well fresh, but this is a significant step up in grade and he is now on a career-high mark which will make this tougher. We are hoping for a decent run.

Grand Alliance 
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
14:25, Newbury

Grand Alliance has had a very good year but is extremely quirky. He has been gelded since his last run which must be a positive. This will also be the first time he has run on ground softer than good and we think he will love it. James Doyle knows him well which is further encouragement for his chance today.

Fierce    WINNER! winner
Sat 22nd Oct 2022
13:15, Newbury

Fierce has shown steady improvement in his races and last time at Goodwood, on good to soft ground, he was a good second to Yacowlef. Beaten just over two lengths he now meets the winner on 8lb better which should at least bring them together. The ground today will be softer but on the evidence of Goodwood he should handle it. Good each-way chances.

Commander Of Ten 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
17:05, Cheltenham

Hurdles debut here today after two runs in NH Flat races. Has schooled well but a tough ask in what looks a hot race, while he's also back from a wind op. Feel he's better than what he's shown though, but work in progress and be happy with an improved showing here and go from there.

Madera Mist 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
16:30, Cheltenham

9th in this race last season. Bolted up here over fences back in April so we know the track is fine. Returned last month at Bangor (hurdles) but needed the run that day and this race was in mind. Has had 3 weeks to get over that and comes here back over hurdles, which will suit. Will need to improve again as 10lbs higher than when winning here in April, but a good jockey in James King riding in this amateur riders' race. Very competitive affair, but hopeful she can leave that last run behind. Each-way.

Fresh Hope 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
15:45, Newbury

Fresh Hope has had a fantastic year and we are hoping to finish it on a good note at Newbury today. The track should suit her and we think she has been crying out for some cut in the ground all year.

Mofasa    WINNER! winner
Fri 21st Oct 2022
14:45, Cheltenham

Lovely horse that we have high hopes for. Only had two career runs, but was a tasty winner at Uttoxeter last time out - going in by 7 lengths. Had a bit more up his sleeve that day so we feel he deserves his chance in this better race. Trip and ground are ideal and looking forward to seeing how he gets on in this better company. Place chance, but hopeful he'll make his presence felt. Luca Morgan, who was on last time, rides.

Lasting Legacy 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
14:35, Newbury

Is a frustrating filly as you never know what you are going to get at the races. Conditions are perfect today but it completely depends on her mood!

Beccara Rose 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
14:20, Doncaster

is a filly we like a lot but she is a big girl and has taken her time to come to hand. They have had a lot of rain at Donny so it will be testing conditions but we think she would like a bit of cut and she has the physique to get through it.

Pisgah Pike 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
13:35, Cheltenham

A remarkable horse with not much of a pedigree, who has been a star for us.  After being placed in a bumper, he won two novice hurdles the season before last and was just touched off in a listed event at Market Rasen on handicap debut.  He won two novice chases last season and was given a lofty rating.  However, we thought he was quite ‘well in’ off his hurdles rating and so it proved when winning the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen in July – the big hurdle race of the summer.   Up 4lbs for that, we gave him a spin at Worcester in August, but he pulled both front shoes off that day, so we can forgive him that.  The handicapper gave us a pound back, and he ran a belter off top weight back at Market Rasen when 3rd last time out.  This looks tough, but Will can take 10lbs off his back, and providing the ground doesn't turn soft, then he can run another big race.

Novus    WINNER! winner
Fri 21st Oct 2022
12:50, Newbury

Nice filly that is going the right way after two solid runs. A close fourth on debut at Sandown and then ran well to be 5th at Kempton last time when stepping up to 6f. Up another 1/2 a furlong here we think will suit and back on the grass is fine. A lot of unknowns with the others but hoping our track experience will give us an edge and we'd have e/w claims. Rhys rides.

Spirit Of Breeze 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
12:50, Newbury

Second runner in the race for us and not without a chance too. Lovely debut run here at the end of June, when 6th and only beaten just under 4 lengths. Ran on well over that 6f that day so the extra 1/2 a furlong here will help. We've taken our time with this colt since but he's strengthened up and no surprise to see a step forward here too. Not without an each-way chance. Tom Queally, who rode on debut, remains in the saddle.

Deceiver 
Fri 21st Oct 2022
12:50, Newbury

Made a nice start to his career at Fos Llas slightly concerned about the soft ground but the drop back should counter the stamina element of those concerns. Very much a horse to improve as a three year old so anythig  he does today a bonus.

Mudlahhim 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
20:15, Wolverhampton

The Haggas horse will be hard to beat here. But our horse will be better for a recent 3rd at Windsor after 2 1/2 months off and the switch back to the AW  a plus - all three career wins have been on the AW and is a course winner too. Nice draw in 2, so e/w chance in a race that revolves around Holocene.

Three Beauz 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
19:45, Wolverhampton

Three Beauz ran back to form last run, she now runs on the aw as she likes quick ground, she has  good draw in 1 and must have a good ew chance but she maybe best over 6f now.

Visibility    WINNER! winner
Thu 20th Oct 2022
17:10, Wolverhampton

Won back at Ponty in the summer but despite running well since has just struggled a bit off the higher mark. Eased another 2lbs here helps and back into a Class 5 as well. Likely we'll all be playing for places behind the unexposed Varian horse, but another of ours today with a chance of hitting the frame.

Kittens Dream 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
16:50, Southwell

Continues to run with consistency - third again the last day and has now hit the top 4 in his last 6 races. Career-best needed but is a course winner here and continues to surprise us and we know he stays a bit longer than this 1m6f trip. Might have to settle for places again with the Hills, Prescott and Wall horses feared but it well and small e/w chance yet again.

Coastguard Station 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
16:40, Ludlow

Beaten market leader the last day, but is much better than that - ran too free. Had 5 1/2 months off after that run to get over it and we are helping him with Ben taking off 3lbs. Won well two runs back at Southwell and a repeat of that would make him hard to beat. Bit to prove, but seems well and doesn't look a great contest.

Ebury 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
16:35, Wolverhampton

Rarely runs a bad race and never too far away, but a hard horse to win with - just 2 wins from 30. Close up 5th again here last time just 3 days ago in a Class 6, so off the same mark in this Class 5 we've a lower racing weight (10lbs). Has come out of that race well and would have place chances again.

Giogiobbo 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
16:15, Southwell

Did well again at the end of the summer - winning twice at Yarmouth and Donny. Close 4th the last day at Yarmouth and had a few months off to get over that busy spell. 5lbs higher still than last win but likes it here being a CD winner. Also stays a bit further than this 5f trip so if able to keep tabs on them can hopefully run on well at the death. Another open race, but Each-way chance.

Abbey Heights 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
15:05, Southwell

Abbey Heights had a niggle in the spring so we gave him a nice break over the summer. He’s a nice horse and will be better than this class in time but may need the run after such a long break. Wide draw a negative.

Ahlawi 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
15:05, Southwell

Open affair but a nice horse that came to us from the Hugo Palmer yard and that has only had two runs for us. Down a few pounds from last time too and has been running in higher-graded races so the ease into a Class 5 will help. Not been out since May but has been working well at home and we've a good draw in 3. Feel we've got a nice e/w chance.

Sea The Clouds 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
14:55, Ludlow

Out of an unraced half-sister to the Group 2 winner over 1m, Echo Of Light, and Listed 1m4f winner Akarem.  Sea the Clouds is a half-brother to Contented who has won over hurdles and fences, and a full brother to My Mate Mozzie who developed into a Graded novice hurdler.  Sea the Clouds was placed in three bumpers last season, and won a bumper on his seasonal return. He followed up with an improved display when winning on his hurdling debut at Newton Abbot last month, and can defy a penalty this autumn.  It looks like we have the favourite to beat here.

Hello Zabeel    WINNER! winner
Thu 20th Oct 2022
14:30, Southwell

Hello Zabeel has run two cracking races for the yard and we have had this race in mind for him for a while as we think the trip and track will suit. He seems in great order at home and should go close.

Amber Dew 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
14:30, Southwell

Only career win came on the turf and is 6 runs without a win on the AW, but was only a length back the last day at Wolves and on the same mark today. Nice draw in 5 and if just settling a bit better this time (took a hold last time), would not be without e/w claims.

Between The Waters 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
14:20, Ludlow

Was very consistent in his younger days before finally getting his head in front and then won three chases in relatively quick succession. Although he has struggled off higher marks, he slipped back to an attractive mark and won last time out under a lovely ride from Page.  He is up 3lbs and in good form.  Jonathan is having his second ride, and knows him well from riding him every day at home. 

Rose Fandango 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
13:55, Southwell

Two wins this year and wasn't beaten far the last day at Wolves. Same mark this time and first run here at Southwell, but no reason why it won't suit. Would have e/w claims but drawn wide in 11 so might need some openings and luck in-running from there.

Catesby 
Thu 20th Oct 2022
13:20, Southwell

Won well at Wolves back in May and despite not winning since has been running some solid races in defeat. Same mark as last time when a fair fourth at Wolves and we've got a 5lb claimer on this time. Well drawn in 1 too and seems well after a few months off.

Louis Treize 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

A bit of a character who has to have everything drop right for him. If Dougie Costello can produce him on the line he has the talent to go close off this mark.

Dont Tell Claire    WINNER! winner

Top call from the Kubler camp.


Wed 19th Oct 2022
16:10, Newmarket

Has run well in defeat several times this season and deserves to get her head in front this season.

Age of Wisdom 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
16:00, Fontwell Park

Not the most reliable of customers but more than capable in a race like this. Last seen in the summer here when running a close second and a repeat of that run off just 3lbs higher would see him go close. We are also offsetting that rise with a 7lb claimer (Caoilin Quinn) riding. Weighted to go well with last success on a 9lbs higher mark, but that came back on 2020 so a bit to prove. Each-way in an open race.

Albert Van Ornum 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
16:00, Fontwell Park

Just the one career win and that came on the flat. 6 runs over hurdles without a win and last seen pulling up at Huntingdon so needs to bounce back from that. Softer ground would have helped but 3lbs lower is a plus in his lower-graded race. Be happy with a step forward in an average-looking race, but does have a big weight 12st.

You Wear It Well    WINNER! winner
Wed 19th Oct 2022
15:45, Worcester

A Midnight Legend filly out of a winning black-type mare, who has produced three winners from four runners, including the five-time winner, Schiaparannie.  This mare was 2nd on her racecourse debut at Ludlow and then won a bumper on her next start.  That race looked competitive, and we like this mare.  She jumps well, and could be quite smart.  This race is full of bumper winners, and could end up being a warm contest.  Would appreciate the ground softer.

Noplacetobe 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
15:10, Worcester

Nice horse that was a winner in a Point back in April. Rules debut here today but is going the right way at home and every help in the saddle with Tom riding. A nice run expected with e/w claims outside the Fry and Bowen runners.

Macho Sun 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
15:00, Newmarket

Macho Sun will make up into a nice three year old, he is having his second run here after showing promise on his first run. He will be worth following when handicapped for next year.

Roger Pol    WINNER! winner
Wed 19th Oct 2022
14:40, Worcester

By Shantou (the sire of multiple Grade 1 winners including The Storyteller and Death Duty), out of a winner on the flat and over jumps by Monsun.  Roger Pol is a brother to the Grade 1-placed and 3m hurdle winner Minella Crooner, and a half-brother to the seven-time winner, Adrrastos (who we used to train) and the black-type winning, L'Aigle Royale. Roger Pol was 2nd on his first and only start to date in an Irish Point-to-Point where he only went down narrowly. He looks smart enough to win a bumper in this autumn, whilst he will develop into a capable hurdler this coming season.  This looks a hot contest, but he should run well.

Let It Shine 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
14:40, Worcester

Ran well for a fair way on debut at Bangor last time out but just got tired in the closing stages. Had a break over the summer and seems stronger, but work in progress with more experience needed.

In The Air 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
14:17, Fontwell Park

Did well last season - winning twice and then highly-tried in at Aintree in a Grade 1. Back in calmer waters here and had a nice break over the summer. Gone well fresh in the past and should be right there, with Winterwatch, who we have to give a fair bit of weight too, the main danger.

Fitz Perfectly 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
13:55, Newmarket

Fitz perfectly made a lovely debut at Newcastle last month and this looked like the logical next place to run her. She seems to have taken her run well and should have improved significantly for the experience. We think the track and ground will suit her.

Icare Grandchamp 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
13:47, Fontwell Park

Nice recruit from France and another runner for us for Harry Redknapp. Yet to win a race over there but has only had two outings and shown up well. Any rain would help but seems fit and well so should run a decent race here. Hood is on to help him focus and Jamie rides. Likely to have the Henderson and Gordon horses to fear most, but can mix it with them if enough juice in the ground.

Givega 
Wed 19th Oct 2022
13:12, Fontwell Park

Former winning Pointer from Ireland that has only had one last run. A fair prosect that has settled in well. Returns from a long time off the track but is still only 6 and looking forward to getting him going again. Looks a good race to start him off and not without a chance, but will improve for this no matter what and hoping he's won to look for this season.

Escape Free 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

First time into a handicap here today after three promising runs. The step back up in trip will suit after running on well the last day over a mile at Lingfield and has also tasted the Kempton track in the past too. Several with similar chances, but we feel she's an improving filly and will have a leading chance here with the expected improvement.

Barn Owl 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Yet to sparkle from 6 runs since coming to us and the last three after a wind op. Back on the flat too after a poor run on hurdles debut last time, so really just looking for a step forward here - dropping mark helps, but doesn't need to show more.

Masqool 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
19:00, Kempton Park

Good win last Saturday and a repeat performance should make him hard to beat.
5lb penalty sure to make life tricky though so plenty on his plate tonight.

Dutugamunu 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
19:00, Kempton Park

Ran well at Lingfield two runs ago but was disappointing last time back on the grass at Sandown. That was a lady amateur riders' race though and the switch back to the AW here will help. We also gave the horse 3 1/2 months off from that last run and seems well for the break - is also down a pound here. The in-form James Evans runner the one to beat, but feel he can run much better here having shown consistent form prior to that last effort.

Sausalito 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
19:00, Kempton Park

Frankel gelding, but no great shakes in opening six runs, but will still have more to come and more improvement as he has more racing. Back on the AW here and dropped another 3lbs but best watched until we see a bit more on the track.

City Cyclone 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
18:30, Kempton Park

City Cyclone has made an encouraging start and if he takes another step forward can be involved in a fairly open looking race.

Larrsen 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
18:00, Kempton Park

Lightly-raced with just 4 runs. Wasn't beaten far on his handicap debut last time at Brighton and was a bit hampered that day too. We feel the step up to a mile will help and 2lbs lower this time. Might have to settle for a place with the Boughey horse the one to beat, but very hopeful of better than last time, with small e/w claims.

Ornate 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
17:20, Newcastle

Needs little introduction - former 100+ rated sprinter in his prime. Now 9 years-old so not getting younger but still loving his racing and has dropped to a mark of 61 - which is 3lbs less than last time and a career low. Is also dropped into a Class 6 race here for the first time and a nice draw in 3 helps. Open race but is well and certainly can't rule out in this grade. Each-way.

Spanish Mane 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
17:05, Yarmouth

Heers Sadie 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
16:30, Yarmouth

Heer’s Sadie has been unlucky not to win again this year but she has dropped in the handicap to a winning mark, ground will suit. Hopeful of a better run here.

Initiate 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
16:30, Yarmouth

Initiate has been disappointing this year, this is her last run before she goes to the sales, tongue strap fitted here so just hoping for a good run.

Aira Force 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
15:55, Yarmouth

Braveheart    WINNER! winner
Tue 18th Oct 2022
15:45, Exeter

By Westerner, the sire of multiple Grade 1 jumpers, out of a sister to four black-typed horses: Group-placed 1m4f winner Armand, Guilder (Grade 2), Rock Gone (Grade 3), and useful winner Goss (Grade 2).  He was 2nd in a bumper last season and was 2nd on his hurdling debut too, and although he didn’t have much luck afterwards, I’d like to think he can progress over fences this season.  He ran well enough on seasonal debut when 3rd, but he didn't get into a good jumping rhythm that day.....if he can today, then he'd have a decent chance. 

Lady Primrose 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
14:25, Yarmouth

Lady primrose is a nice filly with a decent pedigree. This is the perfect starting point for her but like my other filly she is drawn on the end and that can be very hard for a horse that has never run before

Lady Ursula 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
14:25, Yarmouth

Lady Ursula seems to have taken a big step forward from her debut. This track will suit her well but the draw has not been kind to me as both of my runners are drawn on the end.

Quizlet 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
14:08, Newcastle

Quizlet makes his debut at Newcastle where I love introducing horses. His work has been good without being spectacular so I am expecting a nice run today.

Zanagor 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
13:55, Yarmouth

Zanagor is a filly we like who has needed the time, this looks a hot race but I am sure she won’t look out of the place, she is a filly for next year.

Rainbow Storm 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
13:45, Exeter

Rainbow Storm ran well on his only outing last season when finishing third at Taunton over this trip, he subsequently picked up a hair line fracture of his cannon bone so he didn’t run again. He will was given plenty of time to recover followed by a good summer out, he’s definitely grown and filled out as a result which can only help him. Rainbow has been in good order at home and this will be Lewis’s first ride for me after moving to us this summer from Tim Vaughan, he intends to turn conditional in the new year which should bring more opportunities for him.

Jersey Wonder 
Tue 18th Oct 2022
13:15, Exeter

Jersey Wonder has been consistent at this grade in the last couple of seasons since joining us, he loves his jumping and it seemed to freshen him up after a decent flat career. With only one two runners it’s a great opportunity for him on his preferred quick ground and he has won around here before.

Treble Joy 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Looks between the top three in the betting, on of which we are. Yet to win a race but has only had 5 runs and been second three times. Back into a Class 5 helps and debut here at Wolves having run well at Kempton and Lingfield's AW. We are also putting the cheekpieces on today to as we think these will help. Should go close.

Poet 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

Plenty to proven at the moment so best watched for now. On a plus, has been dropped another 3lbs here and actually did better last time than it looks as didn't get the best of runs either. Returning to 7f here, so hoping that helps too but overall just be happy with a step forward.

Makety 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
17:40, Plumpton

Makety has been a fairly consistent performer at her own level, she is a filly that looked quite decent as a youngster but nothing ever seemed to go her way … if it wasn’t for bad luck she’d have had no luck at all.
She’s been chasing until her most recent run and she’s a very good jumper, we’ve reverted to hurdles because of the opportunities and we’re trying a longer trip today, which should suit.
This represents a drop in class, hence why she is carrying top weight.
Makety is an honest mare who is easy to deal with.
She will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Ebury 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Fair fourth the last day at Southwell and eased a few pounds for that by the handicapper. Good draw here in 2 helps and ran well on his only previous run here at Wolves. Each-way claims.

Danah Star 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
17:30, Wolverhampton

Two respectable runs for us so far and seems a nice tough little filly.  Step up in trip on this surface shouldn't  be a problem. Ew chance at big price.

Rampage 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
17:15, Windsor

Gypsy Whisper 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
16:45, Windsor

Better for her last run at Leciester after 2 1/2 months off. But wasn't beaten far at the line (2 3/4 lengths) and the step up from 7f to a mile here will help. Small bit to prove still as running 5lbs higher than last win, but is fit and well so each-way chance. Charles Bishop rides for the first time.

Platinum Prince 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
16:45, Windsor

Very consistent performer in and around this level. Third at Nottingham the last day over 1m2f, but is fine back in trip to 1m too. Probably an easier-looking race than last time in the same grade (6) and Tom Queally takes over in the saddle. Hoping he's the one to beat.

Tara Iti    WINNER! winner
Mon 17th Oct 2022
16:30, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us - last seen back in March winning here, but has been off the track since. Up 6lbs for that win and in a better grade this time, but low weight helps and also Caoilin Quinn booked to ride. Might just need the run back but is a horse we feel has more to come and featherweight gives him place chances.

Mark of Gold    WINNER! winner
Mon 17th Oct 2022
16:30, Plumpton

Good winner at Newbury last season and wasn't disgraced in a better race here last time out - also back in April. Has had a nice summer break and returns in the right grade. Likes the track here too - is a two-time winner and this is a race we like having won it last year. Hopeful of a good run with the Henderson and Harris horses the likely dangers.

Teruntum Star 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:45, Pontefract

Found his form again the last twice - winning at Doncaster and here at Pontefract. Up another 2lbs here but still well-treated on old form and seems to love the stiff finish here. Remains in great form - another open race, but in the form he's in then much have place chances again. 

Moonis 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:35, Windsor

Five career runs and yet to win a race. Needs to show more than last time when well back at Sandown, which was his first run for us since coming from the Varian yard and also being gelded. Only 2lbs lower and the ease in grade will help, but more needed before being more confident.

Cornicello    WINNER! winner
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:20, Plumpton

Cornicello won twice from 6 starts on the flat over 1m2, and was placed in four hurdle starts last season before taking a nasty fall at the last when looking the most likely winner. He remains a novice hurdler for this season, and that could prove a blessing in disguise. He will have improved for his seasonal debut, and looks nicely handicapped here.  Carries a lot of weight, but if he can carry that, then he'd have a decent chance of being in the mix once more.

Hill Station 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:20, Plumpton

Just needed the run the last day after 2 1/2 months off, but still ran a fair 2nd at Fontwell. But also lost a shoe in that last race so that wasn't ideal and the winner looked a fair sort anyway. Niall rides today to claim 3lbs and the drop back to 2m will suit. Mordred the one to beat but not much depth to the race so we'd certainly have an e/w chance here.

Hes A Latchico 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:00, Windsor

In tip-top form at the moment - winning his last three. Those wins all came on the AW, so is back on the grass today and on a 5lbs higher mark again. But we are offsetting much of that with Anna's 7lb claim. Only had 2 career runs on the grass (yet to win), but feel there is more to come. Another step forward needed, but has been freshened up with around 7 months off and should have more to come. Regardless will improve for the run, but still and Each-way chance.

Andaleep 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:00, Windsor

Andaleep bids for his sixth win of the campaign, a course and distance winner last week he should be competitive if fully recovered.

The Whipmaster 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
15:00, Windsor

Ran below par the last day at Epsom, but wasn't the best away that day. Back to Windsor is a plus as won here in Une and dropped a few pounds by the handicapper too. Any overnight rain will be fine and Tom rides again. Needs to bounce back, but no reason why he can't. Each-way.

Ozzie Man    WINNER! winner
Mon 17th Oct 2022
14:45, Plumpton

Winning Pointer that is lightly-raced under rules. Also back from around a year off here today but has been doing plenty at home and this doesn't look the strongest of races. Should be more to come from him and won't mind any overnight rain.

Counteract 
Mon 17th Oct 2022
14:45, Plumpton

Fen Tiger    WINNER! winner
Mon 17th Oct 2022
13:20, Windsor

Fen Tiger has shown improved form since running on soft ground and a step up in trip. Hopefully Windsor will get the rain. Ross being a very good amateur is a big bonus so we would hope he goes well again here.

Mister Tickle 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
17:10, Kempton Park

Mister Tickle compiled a late summer/early autumn hat-trick last year but when he disappointed finishing a remore third in this race, that signalled a loss of form which he did not regain in two more runs. Freshened up by his break, hopefully he can go well and he looks a rather bigger price that he ought to be in this gtrappy line-up.

Ebonello    WINNER! winner
Sun 16th Oct 2022
17:00, Sedgefield

Ebonello is a gorgeous daughter of champion jumps sire Presenting out of smart, black-type winning mare Ravello Bay. She has acquitted herself well in her two runs to date, third at Ludlow and then second, staying on at Hereford. She could be capable of winning an autumn bumper after which her target will be the Listed Mares' final at Newbury in which her dam was placed. Big chance.

Silver In Disguise 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
15:50, Sedgefield

Silver In Disguise thrived last year but has gone up in the weights to reflect this. He is in great form and the long distance is perfect but softer ground would be ideal. Solid each-way claims.

Artistic Endeavour 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
15:15, Sedgefield

Artistic Endeavour is out of a nice dam we trained to win five races. He shows plenty of ability at home but I suspect he will need the experience today.

Teddy Blue 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
14:50, Kempton Park

Teddy Blue did very well in his novice season finishing a creditable second to the smart Knight Salute here in the Adonis before finding the Triumph a little tough at that stage of his development. This is only a three-horse affair which potentially makes it very tactical, but his form reads stronger than the Skelton horse and hopefully the ratings will be proved correct.

Twilight Glory 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
14:05, Sedgefield

Twilight Glory showed us plenty last year but it simply didn't click for him. We think the increase in trip and going over fences ought to improve him significantly and he has summered well. We are hoping for a decent run and feel he has each-way claims.

Age Of Sail 
Sun 16th Oct 2022
13:40, Kempton Park

Age Of Sail is by sire of the moment Frankel and he made a highly-promising stable and hurdles debut when a good second at Chepstow the other day. He jumped well enlough and his experience could be the major factor. Good chance.

Banana 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Apart from one decent third place at Nottingham in June, Banana's summer form has not remotely matched her all-weather level from the early part of the year. Her mark has slipped accordingly though and if she shows any sign of that old ability she would have her chance. 

Six O' Hearts 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

The three-year-old Six O'Hearts is much the less experienced of our duo in this. He did run well for one second place at Windsor during his qualifying runs but when he made his handicap debut, he lost all chance at the start. If he can get away on terms he could yet be a contender.

Coast 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

We have two last-time-out winners in this handicap. It's a while since Coast obliged at a big price over course and distance and I thought he was a little unluclky to have been raised 6lb for a length and a half win. Either of ours could go close.

Valentine Blues    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

Valentine Blues had been off the track for 11 months when making her stable debut here seven weeks ago and won nicely. She too has been raised by the handicapper, in her case by 4lb. As with Coast, she should be a contender in a trappy affair. 

Amber Dew 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
18:00, Wolverhampton

Amber Dew has a nice pedigree but she joined us with a handicap mark in the 80's and it has been difficult to plan her races. Down a few pounds now in this fillies' race, she was a more promising fifth last time and that suggests it won't be long before she gets right in the mix, hopefully starting tonight.

Madaa    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
17:10, Newton Abbot

When Madaa, a son of Le Havre, was sent to the sales unraced from the John Gosden yard as part of the Shadwell dispersal, the last thing Jamie expected was to pick him up for £1,000. Unsold at only double that soon after, he came home and carrying Lucie's colours bolted in on debut in a maiden bumper at Warwick. Still in the family, he has his second start here and we're hoping he can win this too!

Masqool    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Masqool has been in good form this year. Unfortunately the draw has not been kind to him but despite that he still looks the one to beat.

Pop Favorite    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:50, Wolverhampton

Our satellite Wolverhampton yard will be at full steam with plenty of runners at their home venue. Pop Favorite has been disappointing and it would be good for the Wolverhampton Racing Club who own him if he could give them a little more cause for optimism. He did have winning form in the past and it's whether we can get him to recapture it.

Haddex Des Obeaux 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:35, Newton Abbot

French import Haddex Des Obeaux made a good start to his UK career, winning easily on his second start for us over hurdles off a mark of 120 at Fontwell last autumn, earned by a nice win at Auteuil the previous April. He starts over fences off 127 in this novice handicap chase and we rate him quite highly. Hopeful in a competitive contest.

Datsalrightgino    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:35, Newton Abbot

Datsalrightgino is by the high-class German stallion It's Gino (Arc third) and out of a triple winning and Group placed mare. He was second in three bumpers before a fruitful novice hurdles campaign when he won twice including at Cheltenham. He hated winter ground so he should appreciate autumn conditions as we go chasing with him. This is a tight four-runner novice handicap but I think he's well handicapped on hurdles form. Good chance.

Counteract 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:29, Stratford upon Avon

Counteract was off for most of last season and then was out of sorts for his sole run in the spring. He has come back well from his break, is reasonably well treated on his best form and trip/ground should suit. Hopeful of a much better run.

Isle Of Aron 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:14, Market Rasen

Isle Of Aron ended last season on a winning note and has thrived all summer. The form of his last race has worked out well and we are really hopeful he can take this race by the scruff of the neck. He ought to be bang there at the finish.

Legends Ryde 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
16:05, Newton Abbot

Legends Ryde is from a good jumps family and she won a bumper and was 2nd in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham before winning a novice hurdle. Covid then interrupted her progression but after a frustrating season she bounced back last term winning three GBB races and was 2nd in a good graduation chase at Ascot. I'm aiming her at Listed chases this season and while this race will bring her on, it's a decent pot anyway and I think she can be second to get her season rolling.

Dark Shot 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
15:50, Catterick

Dark Shot won this veterans' race a year ago on similar ground and followed up over course and distance a few days later. His close third in the Stewards' Cup consolation race shows he retains all his ability and with conditions to his liking he has to be a factor. I expect a big run.

Kiltealy Briggs    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
15:37, Market Rasen

Kiltealy Briggs is out of a half-sister to Grand National winner Ballabriggs. After a second on debut in a bumper he won two novice hurdles and was 3rd in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham. He excelled when sent novice chasing, winning twice and placed in Grade 1 and Grade 2 company. We'd like to aim for the Grand Sefton at Aintree next month and this looks a good starting point. It's competitive as it should be for the money and although he will improve for the run he should make a good showing.

Motagally 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
15:15, Catterick

We've been aiming high with Motagally and he showed that wasn't out of the way when running a close fifth in the Portland. Next time he never got in contention in the Ayr Gold Cup but he completely missed the break that day. He'll need to break alertly over this 5f but if he does he can be a factor.

Endofastorm 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
14:10, Catterick

Endovastorm ran okay on debut in a good race at Chelmsford considering he made a slow start and was always playing catch up. He has improved for the run and could have each-way chances at a big price.

Vadream 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
14:00, Ascot

Vadream has had nothing go her way this year and I think she was given a very poor ride last time out at Ascot where the jockey went far too soon. She loves the track and soft ground and I am absolutely certain she retains all her ability. Hollie Doyle has a great record in the race and should suit her well.

Wonderweasle    WINNER! winner
Sat 15th Oct 2022
13:52, Market Rasen

Wonderweasle is a lovely, well-bred filly but we've thrown her into a competitive race for her debut today. She ought to learn plenty but this is a tough ask.

Bells Of Peterboro 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
13:45, Newton Abbot

Bells Of Peterboro seems in great shape at home and this is a sensible-looking race for him. He would prefer as much rain as possible to hit the track before race time. The top-weight looks the principal threat but we are hoping for a big run.

Hidden Belle 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
13:10, Newton Abbot

We run two in this novice event and I would be surprised if either of them troubles the judge today. Hidden Belle is a home-bred daughter of top sire Kayf Tara and down the road I'm sure she'll have plenty to offer but she's immature and will need the experience.

Weaver's Answer 
Sat 15th Oct 2022
13:10, Newton Abbot

Weaver's Answer is the one of ours with experience but he was beaten miles on hurdles debut last week and needs to get more experience before we can expect much in the way of results.

Fiscal Policy 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
19:45, Newcastle

A repeat of the effort that saw Fiscal Policy win on handicap debut last week should make him very competitive. The stand rail can have a bias here so being drawn 1 is a disadvantage.

Firewater 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
17:20, Redcar

Lady riders race here but we've Fern O'Brien riding, who has won 6 times from just 36 rides. Back from a break after last seen at the end of May, down 2lbs for that and Fern can claim 3lbs too. Can't rule out off this career-low mark, having won off 19lbs higher when trained by Richard Fahey. Any more rain a help as the ground is key to him, but is well at home and hopeful we can improve on last time. We had a nice winner in the week at a good price, so you never know!

Maketh Believeth 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
17:08, Haydock

Just the one career win from 14 races, but is a fairly consistent performer. A close third last time out at Wolves and back on the grass is fine. Has been freshened up with 2 1/2 months off and we feel the return to 2m is worth another try. Each-way chance if the ground is soft enough.

Cindysox 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
16:40, Uttoxeter

By the champion sire, Kayf Tara (the sire of multiple Grade 1 winners, Thistlecrack, Special Tiara, Thyme Hill etc).  She is out of a four-time winning black-typed mare who won the Sidney Banks at Huntingdon.  Her dam is the sister to the Grade 1 and Grade 2 winner, Bitofapuzzle.  She was in training last season but wasn’t ready to run, however she did well this summer and looks a nice young horse.  Obviously she will improve for this racecourse debut, but we like her and she should run a nice race. 

Blow The Budget 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
16:40, Uttoxeter

Goes nicely at home and shows a good attitude. Has done plenty of work and ground should be fine for her. Looks a competitive contest on paper but does have each way possibilities

Bobmahley    WINNER! winner
Fri 14th Oct 2022
16:25, Fakenham

Another back form a break and another that's had a nice summer - but is fit and well. Still to win a race though from 11 outings, but has been in the top 3 five times, plus doesn't look the best of races so hoping he can go well today. Looks to have Oceans Red to fear most, who is race fit. Like our other runner, probably would want more give in the ground and a more galloping track, but should not be far away.

Seasett 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
16:00, Haydock

Seasett has to have soft ground to be at his best and sadly that has been in short supply this year. Today however he finally gets his conditions on a track he has run very well at in the past. He goes there today with a huge chance

Bells Of Stamford 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
15:15, Fakenham

Won at Ayr back in May and has strengthened up over the summer for us. Up just 4lbs for this return but still only 5 and we think there will be more to come. Fit and well and nice to get going with him again. Ground and trip are fine and this looks a good place to start. Probably would have liked a more galloping track and a bit more juice in the ground, but is in the right race and should go well and be bang there, despite the 5 1/2 month break.

Representing Bob 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
14:59, Uttoxeter

Out of a winning Bob Back mare and from the family of the Gold Cup winner, Synchronised. Representing Bob wasn’t beaten far in a bumper, but looked green and backward in three hurdle starts.  However, he has picked up a low handicap mark as a result, and he exploited that last season with three wins over fences and two close seconds. He still wasn’t the finished article so we didn’t over race him, and there should be more to come from him again this season. This looks a tight little race, and competitive, but the ground should be good having watered all summer, and we need to start him off somewhere.  He is in great order and 3m on a galloping track looks a nice starting point for the season.

Copper Coin 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
14:24, Uttoxeter

CD winner here. Looks a trappy race but we'd have a leading chance. Usually goes well fresh and has won round here in the past. Good ground looks ideal for him these days and the trip holds no fears. He is off a high mark but doesn’t look a deep contest and should go very close

Pilbara 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
14:05, Fakenham

Won at Fontwell this time last year and has run well off a break before, but needs to bounce back from being pulled up the last twice, albeit in fair races. Drop back into a Class 3 helps and should enjoy the tight track, while at 7 he's still got time on his side. Looking for a nice run back, but likely to find a few of the more race-fit ones too good this time.

Rhebus Road 
Fri 14th Oct 2022
13:30, Fakenham

Rhebus has had five runs over hurdles so far and he’s only been out of the four once, that was when my horses weren’t right back in January. He loves his jumping and it was lovely to see him get his head in front at Huntingdon in May, he bounced along in front and it never really looked in doubt. I’d be inclined to ignore his next race at Warwick when he got very upset at the start as that’s a classic sign that a horse has gone over the top, which is understandable he’d been on the go a long time having come from a busy flat season before arriving at Neardown. Rhebus is a horse that takes a lot of work to get fit, he’s done as much as I can possibly do with him at home and he now needs a race to sharpen him up but he will definitely improve for the outing today.

Dorothee 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
17:00, Brighton

We took a punt with the weather and hoped for rain at Brighton and it looks like our wishes have come true as they had 21mm of rain over night. Trip should be perfect and Harry knows her well.

Big Bard 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
16:25, Brighton

A touch of seconditis at the moment - with three silver medals in the spin. Same mark as last time though and acts well here at Brighton, while Rhys can claim this time 3lbs. Taking his racing well and should have a big chance again.

Plymouth Rock 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
16:25, Brighton

Continues to drop down the ratings so hard to discount, but does need to find some old form. 3lbs lower than last time when down the field at Lingfield - but hated the track that day. Eased in trip to 7f (from 1m) here will help and a nice draw in 2. Needs to bounce back but career-low mark gives us hope of a better run.

Pure Bubbles 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
15:50, Brighton

Needed the run back last time out here after 3 months off. But was also slowly away that day, so should be sharper this time. Down 5lbs and also dropped into a Class 6 helps. Rhys booked to take off 3lbs too and we are hopeful the blinkers on today will help. We are giving him a better chance today so small place claims, but the Eustace yard's horse might be hard to beat.

Parikarma    WINNER! winner
Thu 13th Oct 2022
15:15, Brighton

Delighted with her win last time out here on what was her first run for us. Stayed on well that day to win by 2 3/4 lengths and only up 5lbs. Tom rode her well and keeps the ride. Gay's is now a n/r so that helps, but has come out of the race well and should head here with a lot more confidence. Shouldn't be far away.

Atwixaday 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
14:40, Brighton

Fair run on debut here last time out and only 6l off the winner. Would have learned a lot from that run having run green in the early part of the race. Also stepping up to a mile will suit and even though better on the cards still might need more time to get the hang of things.

Proud Fairy 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
14:05, Brighton

Only a neck second to Granary Queen, who we take on again here today. Up a pound for that run and back on the grass here today, which will only be her third outing on the turf. Might need a bit of luck from draw 10, but Rhys rides again and must have another fair e/w chance.

Robs Secret 
Thu 13th Oct 2022
12:55, Brighton

Not shown much from opening three runs, but first run in a handicap here today so that will help. Handled Goodwood okay on debut so we think the ups and downs of Brighton will be fine. Hopeful of better, but still work in progress.

Lucky Beggar    WINNER! winner
Wed 12th Oct 2022
17:15, Nottingham

127th career run today at the age of 12. Has fallen to a low handicap mark after 20 races without a win, but that only came last year. Softer ground today will be more up his street and plenty of experience in the saddle with Graham Lee riding. Hopeful of better and can't rule out off this low weight, but only minor e/w chance.

Kittens Dream 
Wed 12th Oct 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

Another placed run last time out at Southwell (3rd) but continues to creep up the handicap again without winning - up another 2lbs here. Back to Wolves a plus - course winner - and no issues back up to 2m. Is, however, up in grade again this time so taking on better horsesin this 0-70. Would likely need a career-best, so just small e/w chance again.

Kansas City Chief 
Wed 12th Oct 2022
15:40, Wetherby

Kansas moved to us about six weeks ago along with his regular partner Vic Malzard who is now my pupil assistant trainer. Vic is an accomplished amateur jockey who rode 10 winners this summer in her native Jersey taking her tally to 16 and she’s keen to get as many outside rides as possible, she still claims a valuable 7lb. Kansas has been a total star for his connections and I was delighted to be asked to have him this season, Neil Mulholland did a great job with him so it’s going to be a hard act to follow especially as he’s now thirteen but you wouldn’t know it to look at him. He is a bit quirky at home, Vic rides him out in a bit less bridle and he very much does his own thing on the gallops, he’s done as much work as I can possibly do but he will definitely improve for this outing. Apparently he’s always needed his first run of the season but this is a good starting point for him.

Cumulonimbus    WINNER! winner
Wed 12th Oct 2022
15:30, Nottingham

Cumulonimbus has improved out of sight for a change in tactics and looked very impressive last time out. We think this track will suit and the ground is perfect. It’s a tough race today but he is progressing rapidly right now

Entrancement    WINNER! winner
Wed 12th Oct 2022
14:55, Nottingham

5 runs and yet to win a race but has show enough ability to take a race like this. Was a close second last time out at Wolves and with two past runs on the grass the switch to the green stuff is fine. Expected to have a leading e/w chance.

Atomise 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
20:05, Newcastle

Atomise has had such a frustrating season as she deserves to have won a race: I think Newcastle will suit her and a stiff straight 6 furlongs is right up her street. The quicker they go the better for us today

Bal Amie 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
16:22, Huntingdon

Bal Amie is relatively new to me, the gelding having been raced exclusively over hurdles in Jersey for the past couple of seasons after starting out with a win over fences in France. He was trained in Jersey by Alyson Malzard, whose daughter Victoria rides him in all his exercise and on the track today. A very quick jumper, I'm looking forward to finding out from Vic more about him. Hopefully he will run a nice first race for us today.

Judex Lefou 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
16:22, Huntingdon

0-from-14 over hurdles but did better over fences last season when winning at Exeter. Has only had 5 runs over the bigger obstacles and so hoping more in the offering. Back from a 205 day break so likely to improve but has been doing well at home and won off a smaller break in the past. Trappy and tight little race with many chances, but we'd like to think we are one of those.

Solar Prophet 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
16:15, Leicester

Only third run in a handicap here but will be better for his last run at Nottingham after 2 1/2 months off. We also feel the shorter trip here will help after not quite getting home over 1m 1/2f last time. Better expected and should have decent e/w claims. 

Barn Owl 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
14:02, Huntingdon

Nice flat horse that we are going to try over the sticks this season - that's always been the plan. Owned by Steve Packham of Goshen fame so hoping this one can give him some fun over the jumps too. Formerly with the Roger Charlton team too and has won off a mark of 84 on the level. Schooled well for this and looking forward to getting going with him over hurdles. Should have every chance if his jumping holds, with his flat speed an obvious plus, Jamie rides.

Junkanoo 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
13:55, Leicester

Ran well at Goodwood the last day when fourth at the end of August. Been given a helping hand by the handicapper with 2lbs off and we've booked Anna to take off 5lbs this time. The ease in grade here is also a plus and won't mind it if any rain turns up. We feel he's got a live chance here.

Sea Of Charm    WINNER! winner
Tue 11th Oct 2022
13:55, Leicester

Only career win to date has come on the AW back in Nov 21. Returned last time with a fair 3rd of 8 though at Wolves and has improved for that run coming off 2 1/2 months off. 2lbs lower here and we know she stays further than this 1m2f trip, which we'll try and make use of. Each-way chance.

Times Are Blue 
Tue 11th Oct 2022
13:35, Hereford

Times Are Blue won his bumper on debut at Fontwell in the spring in good style despite running green. He went through the line that day in the style of a potential stayer and should enjoy every yard of this trip. He jumps nicely and we are hopeful of a winning start over obstacles.

Point Louise    WINNER! winner
Mon 10th Oct 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Back up in trip here today but has run well on only start over this 1m4f distance on the turf. Fair track form here at Wolves too winning here last year and also running well (2nd) last time over 1m 1/2f - staying on well so the extra trip we think will suit. Taking off 5lbs too with Christian's claim, he's ridden the horse before too and so overall we'd like to think we'd have fair e/w chances today.

Morning Symphony 
Mon 10th Oct 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

By Shamardal, out of a half-sister to St Leger winner, Encke. Morning Symphony won on her handicap debut on the flat when stepped up to 1m4.  She was bought to go jumping but hasn't been the most natural, and so we've put her back on the flat.  She has run ok in both starts on the flat, but still looks vulnerable tonight really.

Visibility 
Mon 10th Oct 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Fairly consistent performer in and around this level. CD winner here at the track and wasn't beaten far the last day at Southwell. Stepping up to 1m 1 1/2f here is fine and in this slightly better grade we get in with 8lbs less in racing weight tha last time. Each-way.

Queens Company    WINNER! winner
Mon 10th Oct 2022
17:40, Yarmouth

Queen’s Company has run well at the track in her last two runs, the step up to a mile will suit but we would have preferred to run in a lower grade, she is in good form and should have an e/w chance again.

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner
Mon 10th Oct 2022
17:05, Yarmouth

Spanish Mane is in great form at home, the drying ground will suit and Rose Dawes back on board after her injury, she should run her race again and have an e/w chance.

Stintino Sunset 
Mon 10th Oct 2022
16:30, Yarmouth

Stintino Sunset makes her debut on turf, she has been working well on the turf, track & trip will suit and handicap mark about right. We think she has an e/w chance at a good price.

Andaleep    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for the Kubler camp.


Mon 10th Oct 2022
15:20, Windsor

Andaleep hasn’t quite had things pan out for him in stronger  races the last couple of times. Bidding for a fifth win of the season the ease in grade should suit, draw a little tricky.

Saligo Bay    WINNER! winner
Mon 10th Oct 2022
15:20, Windsor

Versatile performer with wins on the flat and over hurdles. Returns on the level today after 5 months off to get him going again before running over the sticks again this season. Rhys takes off a handy 3lbs and won't mind the overnight rain, while he's been doing plenty of work at home. Trip maybe a tad on the tight side, but has plenty of pace and we know he stays further so in the wetter conditions that will help. Each-way claims.

Warning Sign 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
17:20, Goodwood

We bought Warning Sign from France in the summer. He had five runs there and won a small race in the Provinces late last year. His debut here at Sandown in August was encouraging enough, staying on as a 50/1 shot and we hope he can improve on that today.

Goshen    WINNER! winner
Sun 9th Oct 2022
16:45, Goodwood

As ever we are looking forward with anticipation to Goshen's return to action. He had another excellent season over jumps, winning a Listed at Sandown by miles and then the Kingwell at Wincanton. He had a run in a handicap here after that back in May when he was a creditable third and he can be a factor in this even if he can be made sharper, probably for his comeback over jumps next time.

Miller Spirit 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
16:10, Goodwood

Miller Spirit is by Australia and has been showing promise on the gallops. Nine furlongs is a long way for a juvenile especially on debut and Goodwood is also not the easiest for a newcomer. Hoping he can show the promise on the track he does at home.

Gerrots 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
16:00, Southwell

Gerrots was progressing nicely in the spring until picking up a minor injury. The summer break has done him the world of good but he may need the run today.

Robbie Dazzler    WINNER! winner
Sun 9th Oct 2022
15:45, Ffos Las

Robbie Dazzler ran well when third over just short of today's trip at Bangor but faded third time up the hill late on stepping up to 3m2f at Fontwell. This flat track will be more to his liking and a repetition of the Bangor form would put him in the mix.

Hardy Du Seuil 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
15:10, Ffos Las

Hardy Du Seuil, by smart NH sire Coastal Path, was second in two three-year-old bumpers in France before bolting up at Fontainebleau.  On joining our stable we sent him novice chasing to utilise the 4yo wfa allowance and he won twice as well as finishing second in a Grade 2. His jumping wasn't always assured and we thought he would appreciate going back over hurdles where he runs off a lower mark. He has an engine and could be very well handicapped. It's a 50k race and he is well worth a chance at a decent price.

Chiefofchiefs 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
15:00, Goodwood

Chiefofchiefs drops in grade significantly for the first time in years today in the hope he can get the win he so richly deserves. Conditions should be spot on and he seems in great order.

Justcallmepete 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
14:50, Southwell

Justcallmepete had solid early-season form and then lost his way. If back to his best he would have a chance but lack of a recent run and a wide draw make this a big ask.

Fierce    WINNER! winner
Sun 9th Oct 2022
14:25, Goodwood

Fierce is a likeable colt by Dandy Man and he has been gradually finding his feet in his races over 5f. Last time he ran on into third at Lingfield suggesting this step up to 6f will suit. Place chances at least.

Royaume Uni 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
13:50, Goodwood

Last year after a similar summer break to this, Royaume Uni was quickly into his stride over hurdles after a single flat comeback run. Top-weight in the NH jockeys' handicap will not be easily defied but he is a fresh horse unlike many of his rivals and Jamie knows him well. Each-way chances.

Pop Favorite 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
13:40, Southwell

We gave Pop Favorite a few runs over the winter mainly at the "old" Southwell and he didn't match his earlier form in his previous stable. He had the spring and summer off and returned with a pipe-opener at Wolverhampton where he didn't shape too badly. Now on the Tapeta at Southwell we could anticipate a more prominent shpwing today.

Howdilyoudo 
Sun 9th Oct 2022
13:25, Ffos Las

Howdilyoudo is out of a half-sister to Irish Grand National third Whatuthink. By Presenting, she was placed in bumpers and novice hurdles before winning two handicap hurdles last summer. She won on chase debut this season but things haven't quite gone to plan since. She did run well enough last time though back over fences and off a competitive low mark she'll have her chance.

Travesuras 
Sat 8th Oct 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Travesuras won over course and distance last time out but tonight he has a tougher draw. That said he is still highly progressive and there should be plenty more to come from him.

Perseverants 
Sat 8th Oct 2022
17:00, York

Non-runner

Marbaan 
Sat 8th Oct 2022
15:00, Newmarket

Marbaan was very disappointing in Ireland but it must have been the ground as the form of his race at Goodwood has worked out very well. If it was the ground then he is a massive price as conditions should be perfect.

Age Of Sail 
Sat 8th Oct 2022
13:42, Chepstow

Age Of Sail is a son of Frankel, whose progeny were in such fantastic demand at the yearling sales this week. Ex-Godolphin, he raced in the high 70's on the flat for his last trainer, staying on in his races at 1m4f and not always having the best of luck. He is fit for this debut and shows hurdling promise. Hopeful of a winning start.

Theotherside 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
17:35, York

Needed the run back last time out after 5 1/2 months off, but still ran a decent race to be 5th that day. Dropped a pound helps and since coming to us from the Hannon yard has run 5 solid races ow without winning. Another good show on the cards, but the wide draw in 11 would be the negative, so being more of a hold-up performer might need some luck from there.

Galop Du Bosc 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
16:35, Chepstow

Three time winning Pointer that is having his first run for us. Not been out since May though so will improve for this but the plus is that we are taking on three others that are also back from a break! We are also the youngest in the field at 6 so hopeful there is more to come. Should run well and no matter certainly one to note this season - but doesn't really look a betting race with acttually race fitness having to be taken on trust for all these.

Zargun 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
16:25, York

Has frustrated this season and is now 13 races without a win. But the last of those wins came in this month last year and is now 5lbs lower too. Better last time at Ayr in the Silver Cup (7th of 25) and off a 2lbs lower mark is not without an e/w squeak.

Polly Pott 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
15:35, Newmarket

Hard to not be delighted with her this season - one of the success stories of the year (in my eyes anyway). Has progressed up the ranks when winning her last four and shot up 31lbs from her last run when winning the G2 May Hill at Doncaster. That was her 4th win in a row and is still improving. Up into a Group 1 now seems crazy but deserves to take her chance and with that rise last time is actually the second top-rated in the field now. Commissioning the one to beat, but this filly keep on surprising us, so you never know!

Weavers Answer 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
14:50, Chepstow

Fair opening run back in March in a NH Flat race - put away for the summer and done well for this first run over the sticks. But work in progress and will be better not only for the run but once gaining a mark and more experience.

Helm Rock 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
14:40, York

Helm Rock put up a career best last time to win well at Haydock this is another step up, he loves softer going so the more rain the better

Perseverants 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
14:40, York

Came to us from France, where he's won twice from 13. Hard to access that form but has settled in well and this looks a nice place to start him off. Any rain would probably help but has won on good in the past. Draw wide in 18 not ideal though and so really we'll learn a lot here and kick on from there.

Percys Lad 
Fri 7th Oct 2022
14:40, York

Percy’s Lad has had a good season winning three, he was taken on in front last time out and the pair of horses ended up doing a bit much. Big field a concern as he seems most effective when rolling along in front.

Some Chaos    WINNER! winner
Fri 7th Oct 2022
13:35, Chepstow

Some old faces in this Vets Race, including Cloth Cap, but Some Chaos has a following too and we won this race last year too. Back off a 2lb lower mark this year and a horse that goes well off a break. This has been the target for a while again and the ground is fine. Ben knows the horse well and rode him to win this 12 months ago too. Probably a slightly harder race than last year, but we head here as the current champ in the race and hopeful he can go well again.

Smokey Malone 
Thu 6th Oct 2022
20:00, Chelmsford

Smokey Malone has been very consistent this season since being stepped up in trip, another step up to 1m6f tomorrow but Dylan Hogan has been wanting to see him over this distance for some time. He is in great form at home and has won at Chelmsford. We would hope that he has a good e/w chance again.

Iconique    WINNER! winner
Thu 6th Oct 2022
20:00, Chelmsford

Iconique has run consistently all year. I think the 14 furlongs at Chelmsford will suit although the draw hasn’t been kind. Harry Davies takes a very useful 3lbs off

Endofastorm 
Thu 6th Oct 2022
18:00, Chelmsford

Nice filly, but first day at school today for her. Should be fine over this 7f trip though and looking forward to getting going with her, but the three at the head of the betting, that have all had recent runs, look the obvious ones.

Night Fever 
Thu 6th Oct 2022
17:40, Worcester

By Dylan Thomas out of a German 1m3f winner, who is a half-sister to two German Listed winners over 1m and 1m2f.  Night Fever is a half-sister to a couple of French flat winners.  She won over 1m1f on the flat, and was placed over 2m.  After a winter off, she has been placed over hurdles this summer, but her jumping has let her down on occasions.  She seems in a good place now, and providing carrying top weight doesn't inconvenience her, then she'd have a chance here.

Herecomesfreddie    WINNER! winner
Thu 6th Oct 2022
17:05, Worcester

Won his bumper well last season then put up a good performance in a hot bumper at Lingfield. Was found to be lame after his last start at Hereford, has schooled well at home and conditions should be ideal for him today the top two in the market will be hard to beat and have decent reputations. Should be in first 4 if all goes well

Trixster 
Thu 6th Oct 2022
14:50, Warwick

Tight little race with just 3 runners but seems we've all got a chance. Trix is well at home and been freshened up with almost 6 months off. On a plus, we are the only course winner in the field, so that has to be an advantage and acts well on this good ground. Only had 3 runs over fences and yet to finish out of the first three (1 win). Taking on two horses that have had the benefit of recent runs, but regardless, will come on a bit for this but has won off a break in the past and that also came here at Warwick, which gives us confidence too!

Enthused

Reckon Im Hot 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

14 race maiden. Needed the run last time out at Chelmsford after a few months off and getting tired in the closing stages. Will be better for that and a nice draw in 3 too. Also eased 2lbs by the handicapper from that last run will help. Should have fair e/w claims, with Tom Queally riding.

Fiscal Policy    WINNER! winner
Wed 5th Oct 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

Fiscal Policy is still a work in progress but has stepped forward with each race, but drawn wider than ideal.

Alpha Crucis 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
17:50, Kempton Park

Work in progress after running down the field on debut at Ascot last month. Switch to the AW will be fine here today but very much one that needs experience and will be better once handicapped.

Bowland Park 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
16:20, Nottingham

Bowland Park gets his ground today and should appreciate the ease in class.

Solar Prophet 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
16:20, Nottingham

Four career runs to date and glimmers of ability. Back up in trip here today will help, but higher grade here today so more on his plate. Overall needs to improve though to figure today.

Shahbaz    WINNER! winner
Wed 5th Oct 2022
15:50, Nottingham

Shabhaz has been a bit unlucky not to win yet and we think he will appreciate this step up in trip. I also like the fact he is going around a bend too. Jamie Spencer is the perfect jockey and the ground should be beautiful. Plenty in his favour today

Novus 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
14:05, Nottingham

She was 5th on debut at Sandown and not far away last week on only second career run at Kempton - beaten just 2 1/2 lengths. Nice filly in the making and certainly going the right way, plus has come out of that last race well. The Tate runner likely to be hard to beat though so looks like we are all playing for places. But will get a handicap mark after this, which will help. Each-way.

Enthused 
Wed 5th Oct 2022
13:40, Sedgefield

First run for us after running on the flat 11 times - mainly for Joseph Parr. Useful performer on the level too - rated in the 80's and has schooled well for this first run over hurdles. Looks a race with just two others with chances - based on our flat ratings - Summer Moon and Onesmoothoperator, but providing his jumping holds up shows plenty of pace at home and hopeful that will see him go close. Tom rides.

Platinum Prince    WINNER! winner
Wed 5th Oct 2022
13:30, Nottingham

Been running with a lot of consistency of late and is versatile in terms of trip. A close third over a mile at Brighton last time, but stays this 1m2f trip well too. Does have a habit of carrying his head high, but that doesn't stop him winning (4 wins). Course winner here too and Anna gets on well - she claims 5lbs again too. Be surprised if he's not involved again and hoping he's the one to beat.

Tequilamockingbird 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
20:00, Southwell

Ran a fine second here at the track last time out - staying on well over the 1m3f trip. The extra furlong is fine and is only a pound higher this time. We are also helping by booking Harry Davies to claim 3lbs, so is actually in here 2lbs lower than last time. Should go well and we expect her to not be far away.

Cool Spirit 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
19:30, Southwell

Had a little break since last seen at the end of Aug. Is a course winner here and been doing well in his work at home with the cheekpieces back on today expected to help. On the straight track here too will sharpen him up and a fair draw in 10. Very open race but we feel he'd have an e/w chance off this mark of 50, which is 10lbs lower than last win back in March.

Sausalito 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
17:40, Brighton

Fair bit to prove at the moment with some average recent runs. On a plus, has only had 5 career runs and two for us so hoping there is still time for this 3 year-old, but best-watched until we see more.

Visibility 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
17:30, Southwell

CD winner that had a small break since last running (7th at Wolves). 2lbs lower this time and back down to a mile is fine. Wide draw the negative so might need some luck from there, but more than capable of getting in the mix in a race like this. Each-way.

Asense    WINNER! winner
Tue 4th Oct 2022
17:05, Brighton

Probably one of our better chances on the day. Can ignore the last run as didn't stay the longer trip and an amateur riders' race too. Before that had run well here over this distance and so a repeat of that run, with Hector taking over, will see her go close in what looks a very average contest.

Parikarma    WINNER! winner
Tue 4th Oct 2022
17:05, Brighton

Second runner for us in the race and debut run for us after coming from the Ed Dunlop yard. Just the one win from 38 races tells a story, but as a result has dropped to a career-low mark of just 49 - which is 21lbs lower than when winning. Back also from 3 1/2 months away from the track and despite never seemingly far away in her races gives her a small e/w chance but today will of course tell us more about her and also her first try here at Brighton. Tom rides.

Harbour Vision 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
17:00, Southwell

Ultra consistent at the moment with six top three runs. Another good second last time at Wolves and is only a pound higher. Good draw in 2 helps again and is taking his racing well. No reason to think he can't be in the thick of things again today.

Gypsy Whisper 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
16:55, Leicester

Good winner two runs back at Donny but slightly disappointing as a beaten fav at the same track last time. Back to 7f here will be fine and had a 2 1/2 month break since as it's possible that last run just came a bit too soon - just 5 days between races. Seems well at home so not without a chance of bouncing back in a race with a fair few chances. Each-way.

Bells Of Stamford 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
16:35, Huntingdon

Live chance for us today - improved back in May when last seen to win at Ayr for the first time. That was only his sixth career run so will have more in the locker and has done well over the summer. Up just 4lbs for that last win looks fair and we know he stays a tad further than this trip. Ground also fine and hopeful of another decent run.

Celestial Point 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
16:28, Brighton

Course winner here at Brighton so no issues about the track. Needed the run back the last day here after a few months off so expected to be better for this. Also back up in trip here to 1m2f will be fine and down a pound from last time so returns to last winning mark. A race with little depth so e/w chance, but the first two in the market might be hard to topple.

Danah Star 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
16:20, Leicester

Big field and very open contest
again. Poor draw for our filly and we're still trying to learn a bit about her. Tough likable sort but may find things a bit beyond her today.

Eragon De Chanay 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
15:25, Huntingdon

Just the one win over fences to date and that came back in January this year. Had a summer break from March so is back from around 6 months off here. Gone okay off a break in the past and only 3lbs higher than last win, so small place chance with the ease back into a Class 4 a help, but no matter will improve for the run.

Atwixaday 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
14:43, Brighton

Debut on the track for well-named colt so very much a fact-finding mission today with the experience going to be a plus for the horse going forward - while he's taken on several that have already raced. Strawberry Belle looks the obvious call.

Larrsen 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
14:08, Brighton

Only average form to date, but into a handicap today for the first time will help, plus doesn't look the strongest of races. A step forward on the cards but might just find 1 or 2 too good. Small e/w

Elterwater 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
14:00, Leicester

Has shown plenty of ability at home and now needs to translate that to the track. Ultimately she will progress as a three year old but we would hope she can win at two. She will get further in due course but didn’t look quite strong enough over a mile last time out so drops back to seven. She has a nice draw in 2.

Jean Genie    WINNER! winner
Tue 4th Oct 2022
13:40, Huntingdon

Been a frustrating horse as never far away in his races but is still looking for a first career win from 21 runs. A close head second last time at Newton Abbot backed this up again last time, but stayed on well that day over 2m5f so we feel the step back up in trip will suit. The Henderson horse the likely one, but another bold show on the cards and should have a decent e/w chance.

Aira Force    WINNER! winner
Tue 4th Oct 2022
13:25, Leicester

Aira Force has progressed with each start. She was a good second last time in a similar race at Kempton. Another step forward would give her a good chance here. This is a big field and her draw in the middle of the pack could have been better, but it also could have been worse.

Mintana 
Tue 4th Oct 2022
13:25, Leicester

Big field of juveniles so anyones guess who is progressing. Ours is small but tough and racy. Ran well last time out when saddle slipped. Small e/w shout in very open contest.

Executive Pool    WINNER! winner
Tue 4th Oct 2022
13:05, Huntingdon

Might be tough to beat the Skelton horse, but we'll be there to pounce if their horse runs below par. Our 3 year-old is going the right way after 2 runs over hurdles since switching from the flat. A fair second last time at Plumpton was another solid effort - just getting a bit tired in the final stages. Therefore, the drop back to 2m here is a plus and will love the track and ground. Should be thereabouts, but likely second.

Seneca Chief 
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
17:55, Wolverhampton

Returns after a bit of a break. Draw wider than ideal. Congratulations to Arc winning jockey Luke Morris, quite the change up for him to be at Wolverhampton the day after.

Star Zinc 
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
17:32, Windsor

has been crying out for a step up to a mile for a while but his head has prevented him from doing that. He was much more settled last time out and so I think it’s time to give it a go. The ground should be ideal and he seems well at home. Harry Davies takes a valuable 3lbs off his back

Teruntum Star    WINNER! winner
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
17:25, Pontefract

Delighted with his win last time on first run for us. Loved the strong pace that day and came with a lovely late run to win going away in the end. Up just 4lbs for that and the extra 1/2 a furlong here will be fine. Bit of give in the ground a plus too and should enjoy the stiff finish. Had 3 1/2 weeks to get over that run and although he's no spring chicken last time clearly showed he's still enjoying his racing. Place chance here again today with Dale riding again.

Broomy Law 
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
16:46, Wolverhampton

Just average performances recently but continues to ease down the handicap and racing off a career-low mark here today. Another 3lbs lower this time helps and we are also dropping him into a Class 6 with blinkers on for the first time as well. The Morrison runner looks the obvious call, but hard to ignore ours off dropping mark and hopeful we'd have an e/w chance.

Pappa Rocco Coco 
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
16:30, Stratford upon Avon

By Shirocco, out of an unraced sister to the five-time winner, Coco Opera, who was the dam of Grade 2 winner Artic Skipper and five-time winner, Castle Robin.  He is from the family of the Arkle winner, Mulligan. He was in pre training last season, and he looks to have the speed to win a bumper. Tricky to work out this race with quite a few unraced horses, but our lad goes well at home

Faitque De Lisle 
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
14:45, Stratford upon Avon

Yet to win a race, but has only had one career run for us after coming from the Ed de Giles yard. Last seen back in Feb but that came on heavy ground and was put away for the summer after. Better ground today will help and despite not winning a race yet has shown some fair form over hurdles, including here at Stratford. Lightly-raced over fences too and should have more to come. Place chance in an open affair.

Big Bard    WINNER! winner
Mon 3rd Oct 2022
13:30, Windsor

Second the last twice - narrowly beaten both times at Brighton. Remains in good order at home though and switch to Windsor is fine - only previous run here came over a mile, but seems more at home over a bit shorter these days. Cheekpieces are on today for the first time and a good draw in 1. Expect him to be thereabouts again.

Bells Of Rutland 
Sun 2nd Oct 2022
15:28, Uttoxeter

Bells Of Rutland is a well-bred type and while uninspiring to start with, he did show glimmers of improvement last time. He could improve now handicapping and is one to keep an eye on, although he still needs roadway experience.

Colonial Empire 
Sun 2nd Oct 2022
14:53, Uttoxeter

Colonial Empire won his bumper in good style but hasn't instantly taken to hurdles. I think he will start finding his feet soon and am expecting an improved run, but having been off for some time he might need this.

Colonel Harry 
Sun 2nd Oct 2022
13:43, Uttoxeter

Colonel Harry, a son of Shirocco, sire of numerous Grade 1 winning juimpers iincluding Annie Power and Minella Rocco, is out of a full-sister to smart performer Colonel Yeager. He fell at the final fence with the race at his mercy on his point-to-point debut but then made amends, bolting up in a very fast time. He has summered well and looks a potentially smart horse at home. He is bound to improve for his racecourse debut as the season progresses but this is a nice starting point.

Mofasa    WINNER! winner
Sun 2nd Oct 2022
13:43, Uttoxeter

Mofasa is a big chasing type who showed plenty of promise on his first start when fourth at Ffos Las. We gave him plenty of time after that and he has schooled well and matured physically over the summer. The Snowden horse has some good pointing form and looks the one to beat.

Jeremy Central 
Sun 2nd Oct 2022
13:08, Uttoxeter

Jeremy Central won a couple of Irish points and had plenty of experience but this is his first run over hurdles and it looks a tall order. Best watched.

Pop Favorite 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

We've yet to coax a tune out of Pop Favorite on the track but know there is some ability in there. Hopefully he can start to show something off his slightly reduced mark.

Poet 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Poet was a decent performer for his previous stable but he has struggled in his races for us. If he could rekindle that form, with a jockey who knew him in the good days, he might spring a surprise at massive odds, but that may be wishful thinking!

Harmonious 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
17:00, Wolverhampton

Harmoniuos did run a decent race five runs back over this trip at Southwell when second, but he has been regressing since. He turns out again two days after a modest effort here and it would take a massive change of attitude for him to figure. 

Tapley    WINNER! winner
Sat 1st Oct 2022
16:55, Fontwell Park

Tapley was bought in Ireland after the latest of his point-to-points when he finished a good second and might have won bar a last-fence mistake. A five-year-old by Geordieland, he is sure to stay and has the experience to take a hand against less seasoned rivals. Hopeful each-way.

Dream Composer    WINNER! winner
Sat 1st Oct 2022
16:45, Ascot

Dream Composer has been pretty consistent in handicaps of this nature and ran very well when runner-up at Goodwood last time. We are taking 3lb off in a trappy handicap and on similar ground to Goodwood he can hold each-way claims.

Wynter Wildes 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
16:27, Newmarket

Wynter Wildes is one of the toughest horses I have trained. She thrives on racing  and never runs a bad race. Conditions should suit her perfectly and I see no rreason why she shouldn't act on the track. Very unlucky last time, so clearly on a decent mark, she will have her chance once more.

Colombidea 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
16:10, Ascot

We are shooting for the stars with Colombidea and she will also be happy on the rain-softened surface. She is far from useless but this is a very tough assignment. On the prevailing ground she has an each-way squeak.

Chapmanshype 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
15:45, Fontwell Park

Chapmanshype has been a prolific performer, winning nine of his 25 career starts. Six times successful in handicap hurdles earlier in his career he made an impressive winning debut over fences in the summer of last year but scared himself that day. He did manage places on his next two starts but didn't look a natural chaser. Back over hurdles he took a while to come back to himself and for his mark to slip to a competitive mark. It all fell right again at Newton Abbot in July and he was a good second last time out. He loves this track and providing it's not riding too soft after last night's rain he should have a decent chance of maintaining his unbeaten record here.

Vorashann    WINNER! winner
Sat 1st Oct 2022
15:45, Fontwell Park

Vorashann has a good record on the course and won on his latest start in June when ridden by the same 7lb claimer. Up only 3lb but in a better race, he must have each-way chances.

Vadream 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
15:00, Ascot

Vadream has had an extremely frustrating year and is clearly at her best when the ground is soft. Overnight rain has made it good to soft, soft in places and that should be fine. I think she has a great chance.

Icare Grandchamp 
Sat 1st Oct 2022
14:00, Fontwell Park

Non-runner

Ornate 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
20:15, Newcastle

Ran okay last time at Wolverhampton from a wider draw. Dropped 4lbs for that here and a better draw in 1. Very well-treated in old form despite not winning for since March 21, but that came off a 33lb higher mark! Dangerous to rule out in this grade and from a top draw. Decent e/w value

Braveheart 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
17:10, Fontwell Park

By Westerner, the sire of multiple Grade 1 jumpers, out of a sister to four black-typed horses: Group-placed 1m4f winner Armand, Guilder (Grade 2), Rock Gone (Grade 3), and useful winner Goss (Grade 2).  He was 2nd in a bumper last season and was 2nd on his hurdling debut too, and although he didn’t have much luck afterwards, I’d like to think that he can progress over fences this autumn.

Virgo 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
16:40, Newcastle

Virgo was unlucky at Redcar when getting trapped on the rail and having to switch very wide. I’m not sure if the drop back to 7 will suit but the track definitely will. He is well handicapped but his jockey is very inexperienced and very much still learning the ropes

Albert Van Ornum 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
16:35, Fontwell Park

Pulled up the last twice so we gave him a break. Still only had 6 runs over hurdles so should have more to offer around this grade but returning from 4 1/2 months off so best-watched for now with the Mulholland horse the likely winner.

Pilbara 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
16:00, Fontwell Park

Jersey Wonder 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
15:35, Hexham

Jersey Wonder has been a consistent horse at this level since joining us from a reasonably successful career on the flat. He enjoys his jumping and it initially rejuvenated him in his new role as a hurdler, he’s got a bit cuter nowadays but still retains ability if things go his way. He will stay further than this distance but it is a stiff finish here and he’s not devoid of speed, the better the gallop they go the better chance he will have.

Hill Station    WINNER! winner
Fri 30th Sep 2022
15:25, Fontwell Park

Well back the last day at Newton Abbot but was in a better race than this. We gave him 2 1/2 months off after that race and should find this a lot easier. The Mullins horse is fearer, while we also get a handy 12lbs off Sheena's in-form runner. Hopeful of a better run today with Jamie riding.

Dusky Days 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
14:50, Fontwell Park

A full brother to the good stayer, Fontsanta.  He is out of a half-sister to useful bumper/2m-2m1f hurdle winner Dusky Lord who herself was out of a sister to high-class jumper Deep Sensation.  Dusky Days won a bumper on his racecourse debut and was then 4th in a Listed bumper at Ascot. He finished last season with two 2nds over hurdles and remains a novice hurdler this season, and should be able to win one of these. 

Fascinating Lips    WINNER! winner
Fri 30th Sep 2022
14:50, Fontwell Park

Fair flat performer (70 rated) that has won 3 times from 15. Fit from a recent spell in the level but the plan was always to give him a try over the sticks. Schooled well enough and looking forward to seeing how he gets on. If his jumping holds up not without a chance.

Aggagio 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
14:35, Ascot

Has been running well at Goodwood this season but isn't a one track pony. Stays this 2m trip will on the flat and only 3lbs higher than when scoring last time out. Rhys rides again and should be going close again - any rain a plus.

Buckos Boy 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
14:15, Fontwell Park

Out of a mare we used to train who won a couple of bumpers and over hurdles, this son of Midnight Legend won a bumper and a maiden hurdle.  He has largely been very consistent since, and has been placed in several decent handicaps. He deservedly got his head in front earlier this summer at Newton Abbot and can continue to progress over hurdles before he goes novice chasing in the spring.  This looks a tight little race, but he should run his race and won't be far away.

Makety 
Fri 30th Sep 2022
13:50, Hexham

Makety ran better at Newton Abbot last time out when third of four over fences, she got a bit behind before staying on well that day around a track that was on the sharp side for her. She’s reverting to hurdles today, only because it’s the right race, this course with its uphill climb to the finish should suit her better. She is a fun mare who is honest and jumps nicely, she is easy to deal with and generally good to ride. She can be a bit gassy when she’s fresh.

Sea Of Charm 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
20:15, Wolverhampton

No show last time at Newbury but this looks an easier race and the switch back to the AW will suit. Well drawn in 3 to get a better early position. We've also given the horse a break since that last run (2 1/2 months) to freshen up and that should help. Place chance.

Samara Star 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
20:15, Wolverhampton

CD winner, but that's the only plus at the moment. Out of form and well beaten in her last races so hard to back with confidence until we see a return to form. Trying the blinkers today and Kieran helps to take off another 5lbs, but is also 4lbs out of the handicap.

London 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
19:45, Wolverhampton

Been knocking on the door in recent runs, but still hunting a first career win. Third the last day at Windsor was a fair run and Mollie, who rode that day remains in the saddle. Similar run again will have us not far away, but the Prescott horse looks the sort that could be ahead of the handicapper and record a number of wins. Each-way.

Harmonious 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
19:45, Wolverhampton

23 race maiden and a race that revolves around the Sir Mark Prescott horse who looks to be one of theirs that will run up a sequence. Likely that the rest of us will be playing for places!

Shenzhen Subway 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
17:50, Lingfield

Came to us from the Jamie Osbourne yard. Ran for the first time for us at Kempton at the start of this month when down the field. Qualifies for a handicap mark now and that will help while he's only had three career runs in total so still learning. Good draw in 4 and gets weight from most so should have better to come, but probably best watched with the first 3/4 in the betting likely to be hard to beat.

Entrancement    WINNER! winner
Thu 29th Sep 2022
17:45, Wolverhampton

The Hughes and Boughey runners have fair form to aim at so a place might be all we can hope for here. Our filly ran well again last time at Kempton (3rd) and kept on well so the extra 1/2 a furlong will help. Luke rides and draw 4 helps. Each-way claims. 

Plymouth Rock 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
17:13, Lingfield

Both career wins have been on the grass but has only had 3 runs on the AW. Dropped into a Class 6 here today and down to a mark of 55 give him a much better chance, while draw 4 is a plus. Needs to run better than her only other try here, but that came off a 5 month break and needed the run and in a higher grade. Better expected and would have a small e/w chance.

Nordy Lordy 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
17:06, Warwick

Nice to get going with this 5 year-old, but first run here today so just hoping for a nice introduction really and go from there.

Proud Fairy    WINNER! winner
Thu 29th Sep 2022
16:39, Lingfield

Neck winner at Chelmsford last time out - breaking her duck at the seventh try. Has had 3 weeks to get over that run and seems to have improved at home since. We also feel she ran on well over that 7f to give her a try over this 1m trip. Up 4lbs, but Rhys rides to take 3lbs of that off. Plenty of chances, but we are one of those, each-way chance.

Escape Free 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
16:04, Lingfield

Third run so will get a handicap mark after today. Has run two fair races so far without winning - beaten 3 1/4 lengths both times. Wide draw not ideal, but hoping over this 1m trip she can overcome that. The Crisford horse sets a fair standard though so place chance probably the best we can hope for, but will be one to note once into handicaps.

Far Horizon 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
16:04, Lingfield

Three runs in NH Flat races to date and has shown glimmers of ability. Not been out since January so likely to need this to blow away the cobwebs and hoping we can get him over the sticks soon after.

Evening Story 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
14:54, Lingfield

Has come forward quite a lot at home recently, having not shown much earlier in the season, nonetheless strikes as the sort of horse who will improve for the experience of her first run.

Spitfire Girl 
Thu 29th Sep 2022
13:36, Warwick

By Walk In The Park, out of a black-type winning sister to the Cheltenham Festival winner, Son Of Flicka. This filly is a half-sister to 3 winners including Bandit Country and the 135 rated Granny Biddy.  She was 2nd on her racecourse debut in a bumper and has since been 2nd in two more bumpers last season.  We have been patient with her, and she has really developed well over the summer.  She jumps well, and should make up into a useful novice hurdler this season.  This looks a lovely starting point for her hurdling debut, and she should run a nice race, but is sure to improve for the experience. 

Atlantic Heart 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Got a deserved win on the board under a good ride last time from Luke - has to show she can do it against older horses today.

Dynakite 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Only third run for us since coming from the Brisland yard. No great shakes from first two outings for us but is now 4lbs lower and we feel the return to 7f and back here at Kempton (course winner) will help. Is also down into a Class 6 today so easier oppo and even though it might be hard to trouble the three recent winners at the top of the betting, we are expecting better than last time.

Charming Lily 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
17:30, Kempton Park

Fair debut run here last time out over a mile. Ran a bit green that day so the experience would have helped and hopeful of better here, but might still need more time.

Novus 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
17:00, Kempton Park

Very happy with her debut run at Sandown back in July when a close 4th. We've taken our time with her since but feel after running on well over 5f the step up to 6f here is a big plus. No reason why the switch to the AW won't suit and would have an e/w chance outside the Haggas runner.

Madera Mist 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
15:36, Bangor

Rounded off last season with a nice win at Cheltenham and has done well over the summer. Lightly-raced for her age (8) with just 15 runs. Back over hurdles this time and only rated 5lbs higher than last Chase win. Trip and ground are ideal and will stay further too. Will improve no matter what for the run, with the McCain horse looking the one to beat, but we get a stone from that one and so we'd have e/w chances here.

Copperfasten 
Wed 28th Sep 2022
14:26, Bangor

Winning Pointer that has only had one run under rules which came in a bumper at Uttoxeter. Ran a fair 5th that day and has done well over the summer since. Schooled well for this hurdles debut and we feel the longer trip will suit. We also get a handy 7lbs from the more experienced runners in the field so no surprise to see an e/w effort here today.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Tue 27th Sep 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Doesn't know how to run a bad race at the moment - been in the first three in his last five and was a good winner here two runs back. Up 5lbs from that effort but still in a Class 6 contest so would have every chance again. Negative is the wide draw in 11, but hoping he has a bit more time over this 1m1f trip to overcome it.

Between The Waters    WINNER! winner
Tue 27th Sep 2022
15:01, Southwell

Was very consistent in his younger days before finally getting his head in front and then won three chases in relatively quick succession. Although he has struggled off higher marks, he has slipped back to an attractive mark again and after a break he should be competitive again.

Cape Robin 
Tue 27th Sep 2022
15:01, Southwell

3lbs lower than last time, but down the field at Worcester a month ago. That was his first run back from a 3 month break and a wind op though so hopeful of better today with the drop in trip likely to help too. It's also worth noting he lost two shoes the last day so can put a line through that race regardless. Overall, probably best-watched but certainly had excuses the last day and feel he can run better. But the first three in the market likely to be fighting this one out.

Trixster 
Tue 27th Sep 2022
14:26, Southwell

Is back from a break, after last running at Ludlow in April. Has only had three runs over fences too and is yet to finish out of the first three, including a win here at Southwell earlier this year. Is 9lbs higher than that success but did it well by 17 lengths and wasn't disgraced in a better race last time. Likely to improve for the run no matter what, but has been working well, plus the ground is fine and we know the track suits. Each-way chance in a race all 6 seem to have a chance.

Chorlton Lane    WINNER! winner
Mon 26th Sep 2022
19:00, Newcastle

Chorlton lane is a very nice horse that has been working well at home. On ability he would be going close today but my 2yr olds have been needing the run badly this year and I would back him with caution.

Fitz Perfectly 
Mon 26th Sep 2022
18:00, Newcastle

Similar comments apply to Fitz perfectly. She looks like a lovely filly and has plenty of ability but I haven’t been happy with the performances of several of my 2yr olds recently so it’s very hard to be too bullish.

Sea The Clouds    WINNER! winner
Mon 26th Sep 2022
15:28, Newton Abbot

Out of an unraced half-sister to the Group 2 winner over 1m, Echo Of Light, and Listed 1m4f winner Akarem.  Sea the Clouds is a half-brother to Contented who has won over hurdles and fences, and a full brother to My Mate Mozzie who developed into a Graded novice hurdler.  Sea the Clouds was placed in three bumpers last season, and won a bumper on his seasonal return.  He jumps well, and should develop into a smart hurdler in time.  Hopefully he can start off on the right foot today.

Deceiver 
Mon 26th Sep 2022
14:00, Ffos Las

A big raw colt who is a half-brother to Outgate who did so well for us last year and the beginning of this before being sold to Hong Kong, the favourite will be tough to beat as he already has very good form. However, the small field and big galloping track offer a nice opportunity to start his career off and we hope he will develop into a nice horse in time.

Heer's Sadie 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
16:39, Yarmouth

Heer's Sadie has become well handicapped but she hasn't found her form of last year. She has been running quite well but we think she needs some help so we've added blinkers with the in-form Dylan Hogan on board. Good each-way chance in a weaker race.

Initiate 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
16:39, Yarmouth

Initiate has been coming down in the handicap from a mark that was too high for what she actually achieved. Easy ground will suit and we take off another 5lb for Johnny Peate. She ought to start showing some sort of form.

Mr Chua 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
16:23, Ffos Las

Mr Chua has been largely disappointing this season but is slipping down the weights as a result so is off a very good mark if finding any of his old form. Visor replaces cheek-pieces which will hopefully help as should the return to turf, another potential plus for him.

Barn Owl 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
15:25, Epsom

Barn Owl was progressive for the Charltons last year but has yet to manage to beat a rival in any of his four starts since joining us. The plus side is a declining mark but we will need to see an abrupt improvement before we can anticipate imminent success

City Cyclone 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
14:59, Yarmouth

City Cyclone was getting the hang of things towards the end of his debut at Newbury last Saturday and should improve for the experience. There aren't many resricted novice races left on the turf and they are normally less competitive than open maiden/novices so although the turnaround is quicker than ideal, we felt it worth trying with the ground likely to suit.

Churchill Rose 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
14:59, Yarmouth

Churchill Rose was a breeze-up filly so she should know the job relatively well. This is the perfect starting point and she should run a decent race on debut.

Macho Sun 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
14:59, Yarmouth

Macho Sun is a colt we like a lot and he will make up into a lovely three-year-old. He will need this run for experience but should run a nice race and will be worth following in the future.

The Whipmaster 
Sun 25th Sep 2022
14:50, Epsom

The Whipmaster enjoyed a four-timer in just over six weeks in spring and early summer but did not quite match that level in two runs over 1m4f around Ascot. He drops back to 1m2f now with a big chance if he can return to those earlier performances.

Hello Zabeel 
Sat 24th Sep 2022
17:10, Chester

Hello Zabeel ran a cracker at Newmarket recently when it looked like this step up in trip would suit. He does not want soft ground so we are hoping it dries out as much as possible.

Vanity Affair    WINNER! winner
Sat 24th Sep 2022
17:00, Haydock

Vanity Affair wants the ground as soft as possible and we thought it was testing enough there yesterday. Harry Davies is a top young jockey and he takes a valuable 3lb off. This track should suit.

Pisgah Pike    WINNER! winner
Sat 24th Sep 2022
16:05, Market Rasen

Pisgah Pike took advantage of his lower hurdles mark to win the Summer Hurdle here with a strong late run. Raised for that he did not run much of a race at Warwick but he pulled both front shoes off so we can forgive him. The handicapper gave us 1lb back for that and this race has been the target even since. If he can replicate the Summer Hurdle run he will be bang there again.

Injazati 
Sat 24th Sep 2022
15:40, Newmarket

Injazati didn't get home over further last time so this drop in trip should suit. Hopefully the ground doesn't dry out too much and the track should suit him. Very hopeful.

Cumulonimbus    WINNER! winner
Fri 23rd Sep 2022
16:55, Haydock

Nice winner at Yarmouth last time out - breaking his duck at the sixth try. We've alwasy thought the horse has some ability and that showed last time. Up 6lbs for that with the penalty but had a fair bit up his sleeve we feel and actually eased a tad in grade here too. Apprentice race but Mark Winn booked to ride and he's experienced enough with 19 winners already. Ground is fine and expected to go well again - hopefully can follow-up.

Lady Ursula 
Fri 23rd Sep 2022
15:15, Haydock

Nice filly, but first time on the track today so will learn a lot. Also wears the headgear today to help her keep her kind on the job, but taking on several that have already run so just be delighted with a fair run and go from there for next term.

Helm Rock    WINNER! winner
Fri 23rd Sep 2022
14:05, Haydock

Looks a competitive race with some unexposed sorts particularly amongst the three year olds, any further ease in the ground a plus, well drawn.

Howdilyoudo 
Fri 23rd Sep 2022
13:55, Worcester

Out of a half-sister to the useful winner Whodoyouthink and to Whatuthink (who was third in the Irish National); from the family of Glens Music.  This Presenting filly was placed in bumpers and novice hurdles, before winning two handicap hurdles last summer. She won on chase debut this season, but things haven't fallen for her since.  Back off a nice mark, and back over fences again in a small runner affair, I'd like to think she can run well here.

Blazer Two 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
20:30, Southwell

Touch of the 2nds and 7ths in his races, but in between those has won a race at Leicester. We gave him a break since that last run when running below-par at Ffos Las (beaten fav). Seems well for the time off, but needs to bounce back and is 0-from-13 on the AW tracks.

Morning Symphony 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
20:30, Southwell

By Shamardal, out of a half-sister to St Leger winner, Encke. Morning Symphony won on her handicap debut on the flat when stepped up to 1m4.  She was bought to go jumping but hasn't been the most natural, and so we've put her back on the flat.  She ran ok last time out, when just appearing not to stay 1m6, and so this drop back to 1m4 should be in her favour.  Probably over-priced at 25-1, but still a long shot!

Samara Star 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
20:30, Southwell

Plenty to answer at the moment and drawn wide in 13 makes life hard too. Need to see a return to form so best watched today.

Kittens Dream    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
20:00, Southwell

In good order at the moment - hitting the top four in his last four races. Course winner here too and versatile in terms of trip, but last win came over this 1m6f distance. The Prescott horse could be a handicap blot, but Kitten is running well around this level and has to be considered again.

Engrave 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
19:45, Chelmsford

Engrave did not run to form last week when the race wasn’t run to suit and Fred Larson didn’t know her. Back at her favourite track in a lower grade with Dylan Hogan back on her will hopefully see her run a better race. We hope she will have an ew chance again.

Marnie James    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
19:30, Southwell

Hasn't really hit the heights we've have hoped since coming to us a few years ago - and yet to win a race for us. As a result though has plummeted down the handicap and is 24lbs lower than when he came to us. Hoping the cheekpieces help, which are on for the first time, but can only be hopeful rather than confident.

Louis Treize 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
19:00, Southwell

Talented hold-up horse who could win but not certain to get the run of the race. That said, if everything goes right he should go close as seems well off a short break.

Six O Hearts 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
18:30, Southwell

First time in a handicap after three fair runs. Will be seen in a better light now he's got a mark but first run back for 77 days and also not the best of draws in 12, so just be happy with a solid run and build from there. Will be more in time to come.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
17:25, Southwell

Up 4lbs for a recent win at Wolverhampton but did it well enough to suggest there is more to come despite this being his 66th run. Switch to Southwell is fine too - has run well here without winning - and draw 5 helps. Should not be far away and be disappointed if he's not in the mix.

Masqool    WINNER! winner
Thu 22nd Sep 2022

Back up to a mile at this galloping track should suit.
Nice draw and should give a good account

Croeso Cymraeg 
Thu 22nd Sep 2022
14:53, Pontefract

Done us proud this year and running well in defeat lately in valuable handicaps.
Stiff 10f should suit and fast ground and strong gallop likely. This should play to his strengths. With a bit of luck in-running from off the pace he should be thereabouts

Smokey Malone    WINNER! winner
Wed 21st Sep 2022
20:30, Southwell

Runs back at Southwell where he has won, he has had excuses for his last couple of runs. Trip is fine and Dylan knows him well. We hope he has an e/w chance again.

Harmonious 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
20:30, Southwell

Another that's capable on his day but a bit out of sorts at the moment. Fair second here back in Aug would give him a chance, but since then has been down the field in three runs. Small chance as the drop back to 1m4f will help and if being picky then has had a few excuses the last three times.

Amber Dew 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
20:00, Southwell

Only career win came at Salisbury when trained by Ralph Beckett in Sept 21. Got hiked up the ratings a bit since and has taken time to come back. Is still actually a pound higher here and last run at York suggests more is needed until we see a bit more consistency on the course.

Dark Shot 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
19:30, Southwell

9 year-old now and having his 99th career run today. A bit in-and-out these days so hard to be totally confident but is a course winner that is 2lbs lower than last time and is back to his last winning mark. Hard to rule out (e/w), but goes without saying no hiding place from the handicapper with 90+ runs!

Colombidea 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
18:15, Kempton Park

Is a nice filly but has landed in a very hot race. She has a great draw but it’s her first run in a while so she wont be given a hard time if things aren’t happening today

Ebury 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
18:00, Southwell

Been frustrating and on a run of 24 races without a win. That success came back in 2019 too but on a plus it was off a mark of 90 and he's rated 61 now! Still only 6 so not a horse to give up on and dropping into a Class 6 again here helps him. 2lbs lower from last time and likes to race up with the pace so we also think the drop back to 7f will suit. Blinkers on today too, so trying to give him all the help we can. If it all works, then e/w chance.

Dream Composer    WINNER! winner
Wed 21st Sep 2022
17:20, Goodwood

Drop back to 5f is a gamble. More rain would suit.
Likely fast pace will help his chance. If the gaps come right for him he has an e/w chance.

Fierce 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
17:15, Kempton Park

Improving with easy race after only having three outings. Third at Lingfield the last day over 5f and ran on well that day so the step up to 6f again (tried this trip on debut) looks to be ready for him again. Cracking draw in 1 and Tom rides again. Should go close, with the Fanshawe runner to beat, outside us and that runner the race doesn't look to have much depth.

Toronado Grey 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
16:45, Goodwood

Found the 1m2f trip a bit too far the last day at Epsom. Won well over a mile before that so the drop back to 1m1f here will help. Softer ground is okay too and we've given him a few months off to freshen up with an AW winter campaign on the cards. Rhys also rides this time to take off 3lbs.

Endofastorm 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
15:28, Redcar

First day at school for this filly here today. Well-bred out of the 1000 Guineas winner - Galileo Gold, so could have a fair future, but very much a fact-finding mission here today.

Percys Lad 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
14:25, Goodwood

Made it 3 from 6 since joining us last time with a determined effort from the front at Chester. Looks like he will face a challenge for the lead and has a wide draw which isn’t ideal around here but if able to overcome those challenges will remain competitive.

Via Serendipity 
Wed 21st Sep 2022
14:25, Goodwood

Won this race last year and this has been the plan for a while. He has a great draw and the ground is perfect. Race wasn’t run to suit him last time out.

Three Beauz    WINNER! winner
Wed 21st Sep 2022
13:43, Redcar

Makes her handicap debut here, she has probably been well treated but needs to find the form of her first run. Ground will suit and jockey knows her. We hope she has an e/w chance at a good price.

Teeceethree    WINNER! winner
Tue 20th Sep 2022
17:20, Warwick

Teeceethree is out of a 4-time winning mare that we trained when we started out.  This 4-year-old is by Native Ruler, who is a half-brother to the St Leger winner, Sixties Icon, out of the Oaks winner Love Divine.  TeeCeeThree was a good 4th on her racecourse debut at Stratford last month, and will have improved for that run...so shouldn’t be too far away here.

Semser 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
17:03, Lingfield

Won at Chelmsford last month but ran poorly last time at Epsom. Hard to know why, but maybe just didn't like the sometimes tricky Epsom track and yet to win on the grass. Back on the AW here will help and has won here in the past too. Needs to bounce back but that last run was too bad to be true and no shock if he does. Average e/w chance.

Escape Free 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
16:30, Lingfield

Going the right way with two fair opening runs at Wolves and Kempton. Just got a bit tired the last day over 1m3f so the drop in trip will suit and no reason why the track won't suit. David Probert rides again (on last time) and we'd have small place chances but would likely need to improve here to figure and the Stoute and Johnston runners might be hard to beat.

Anificas Beauty 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
15:55, Lingfield

Second run for the yard after coming from the Gay Kelleway yard. Down the field for us last time on first run at Kempton but took a bit of a hold that day and so we are trying her back to 5f. Shows a fair bit of pace to come with the ease in trip and well drawn in 3. No shock to see a better run here, small e/w chance.

Rebel Redemption 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
14:45, Lingfield

Got up to win narrowly at Wolverhampton last time out and only a pound higher. Good draw in 3 helps as likes to get on with things too. Open race but is well and come out of that last win well too. Each-way chance.

Cornicello 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
13:50, Warwick

Cornicello won twice from 6 starts on the flat over 1m2, and was placed in four hurdle starts last season before taking a nasty fall at the last when looking the most likely winner. He remains a novice hurdler for this season, and that could prove a blessing in disguise.  This looks competitive but I think we come out best on the figures, and we go there with a decent chance of upsetting the favourite.

La Rav 
Tue 20th Sep 2022
13:35, Lingfield

Needs to overcome a wide draw in 10 but has been running well of late and been knocking on the door in recent runs. Down another 1lb here from his recent 4th here at the end of August and if building on that should not be far away if getting the breaks from the wider draw. We probably also sat a bit too handy the last time so we'll drop in today and come with a late run and then hope for a bit of luck in-running with the gaps etc.

Lake Washington 
Sun 18th Sep 2022
16:20, Plumpton

There was just over three years between Lake Washington's one good form line, a second on his only start for Tom Lacey and his debut for us in June. His three runs off very low marks have been pretty ordinary and he will need a major step forward to figure today. 

Executive Pool    WINNER! winner
Sun 18th Sep 2022
14:50, Plumpton

Winner of a 1m4f Classified at Brighton in the summer, Executive Pool is a free racer who probably pulled away his chance first time over hurdles at Fontwell. Racing for two miles around here is less of a stamina test and he if he can be ridden with a little more restraint he could go close.

Starspangledjama 
Sun 18th Sep 2022
14:50, Plumpton

Starspangledjama returned after more than a year off with a run over 1m4f at Epsom this month. He is bred to stay and while he lacks hurdling experience there could be more to come in future.

Arbennig 
Sun 18th Sep 2022
14:20, Plumpton

Although Arbennig began his career with a promising third in a bumper, it took a while for the penny to drop over hurdles. Once qualified for a handicap rating we sent him chasing and he won nicely earlier this summer. He has been a little in and out since then but there should be more to come after his recent wind operation. Hopeful.

Atlantic Heart 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Atlantic Heart threw away a golden opportunity last time but she has gone close to winning a couple of times this season. Hopefully things will fall right for her today.

Rose Fandango 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
20:00, Wolverhampton

Rose Fandango has been running well all summer, both around here where she won a few runs back and also on turf at Haydock where she won narrowly last time. The 4lb rise for that and a wide draw are not ideal, but she's tough and genuine and will be battling all the way to the line.

Magnificent Millie 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
18:30, Wolverhampton

Magnificent Millie ran three times in novice races before showing improvement first time in a nursery when not far behind the placed horses. She has an each-way chance here but really needs to progress a good deal to take the prize.

Marks Bear 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
17:10, Newbury

Marks Bear was running consistently in sprints over the winter but after a break he has come back in less convincing form. He needs to pick up but in this big field his stamina is not certain over this tough seven furlongs as his wins have come at six.

Star Zinc 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
16:45, Ayr

Star Zinc has been waiting for cut and finally gets some today. This track should suit him as will a big field as the stronger the pace the better. He can go well.

Vadream 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
15:40, Ayr

Vadream was back to form beaten a head last time at Newmarket. The race has worked out very well and I think this track will suit her. She looks to have a decent draw. 

Chiefofchiefs 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
15:40, Ayr

Chiefofchiefs is an absolute star and he was a bit unlucky at Ascot in both the Victoria Cup and Buckingham Palace. He ran flat last time so was given a freshen up for three weeks in a paddock. He has come back looking a picture and is ready to go in a race that should suit him perfectly.

Motagally 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
15:40, Ayr

Motagally was having only his second run for the stable when a good fifth in the Portland on Sunday, staying on well at the finish. He was fourth in this last year for his previous yard and with the promise of improvement for the slight increase in distance we have to be hopeful he can be in at the business end today.

Strength 'n Honour 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
15:33, Catterick

Strength 'n Honour ran disappointingly last time but I am not convinced he got home. Cheek-pieces along with the drop in trip will help.

Hello Zabeel 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
15:16, Newmarket

Hello Zabeel is a new recruit to the yard. We think the drop in trip will suit and I like this track for him. He loves decent ground and he should get that here today. Still learning about him but he looks nice.

The Mouse King 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
14:41, Newmarket

The Mouse King won at Southwell two runs back and was raised 13lb! We ran him back, unplaced, under a penalty and he was dropped just 3lb. This looks a tough handicap and I think he's probably better on all-weather and in a lower grade.

Zargun 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
14:30, Ayr

Zargun has not been matching his early season form of late but he didn't run too badly in the Portland on Sunday and could challenge for a place here.

Lady Clemmie 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
13:31, Newmarket

Lady Clemmie is having her third run, again at Newmarket. As she doesn't qualify for the banded two-year-old races, we have to compete with these hot novices. She will be worth following once handicapped.

Seasett 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
13:20, Ayr

Seasett was unsuited by Epsom but has had a nice break since then. He has a lovely draw today and the ground should be absolutely fine although the softer the better for him. I think he will love the track.

City Cyclone 
Sat 17th Sep 2022
13:10, Newbury

City Cyclone is a big, scopey horse who will make up into a nice three-year-old. We had intended to give him a debut in a race that was abandoned. This alternative is a tough first attempt for him.

Big Wing 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
20:15, Kempton Park

Came to us from the Richard Hannon yard in the summer. Two average runs so far so more needed on those efforts but is 3lbs lower. We'll learn more here today.

Sausalito 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
20:15, Kempton Park

Didn't seem to enjoy the track at Epsom last time out on first run for us after coming from the Clive Cox yard. Longer trip and back on the AW give us hope of a better run but best watched until we see a few more runs.

Dynakite 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
19:45, Kempton Park

CD winner here so the track is fine, but only second run for us after coming from the Brisland yard. Needed the run back last time at Lingfield after 4 1/2 months off and only eased a pound in the ratings. Fair draw in 5 and maybe a bit to prove off this mark still, with last win coming off 62 (7lbs lower). But the return to this track will help and the step back t a 1m a plus. Should outrun his odds and we'll be happy with an improved run.

Fiscal Policy 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
18:15, Kempton Park

Has been pretty green on both starts so far. Has the ability so hopefully he gets his act together here.

Robs Secret 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
18:15, Kempton Park

Two run at the end of last year but has been gelded since and we've taken our time with him since. Third run here so will get a handicap rating after this and be seen in a better light after that, but nice to get back going with him.

Stintino Sunset 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
17:45, Kempton Park

Stintino Sunset ran much better on her third run and the form has been working out well. She seems fairly handicapped and has a good draw, Dylan Hogan rides her again and we hope she can progress. Just hopeful of a good run here.

Ulysses Princess 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
14:18, Newbury

Nice breeding for this filly, but debut outing here today for her and taking on several that have already shown a good level of form. Best watched for now lacking the experience edge.

Fierce 
Fri 16th Sep 2022
13:43, Newbury

Getting better with each run - only had three. A fair third last time at Lingfield on the AW was another step forward and after keeping on well over the 5f that day this step up to 6f will help. Should have a nice e/w chance, but the Haggas and Tregoning runners might be fighting this out.

Marnie James 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
20:45, Newcastle

2lbs lower again from last time - has been a frustrating horse as has the ability but has been very hard to win with. Was rated in the 100's 3 years ago so current mark of 74 say it all. Not a bad overall record of placing on the AW though with 6 top 3 runs from 12, so that gives us each-way hope today.

Travesuras    WINNER! winner
Thu 15th Sep 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

In good order despite being a beaten favourite last time out at Windsor. Back on the AW will suit and we've booked Harry Davies to help by taking off 3lbs this time. Well drawn in 1 too and in what doesn't look a great race will have a leading chance.

Engrave 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
20:30, Chelmsford

Engrave loves it here at Chelmsford, it was a shame she was unable to run here last Saturday in a lower grade race due to abandoned racing but she is now well handicapped and Fred Larson can claim another 5lb, there is no reason why she shouldn’t be thereabouts again in this higher grade race.

Seven Brothers 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
20:15, Newcastle

Close third in another Racing League race at Windsor earlier this month. First run on the AW here today but we think he'll enjoy it. Only third run for us too, so more to come, but is fit and well and we think we'd have a decent e/w chance here, albeit in an open affair.

Fresh Hope 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
19:15, Newcastle

Another with a fair chance of getting involved - having won here last time out at the track. Got home by just a neck that day and up 3lbs for that here but is a horse that only does enough and we feel she had more in the tank last time. Should go well again and another Hayley rides.

Dont Tell Claire 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
18:45, Newcastle

Beat some good sorts when second at Ascot last time and found only one very well bred filly who looked a group horse on the day, unlikely to face anything that good in this and should be able to compete

Light Up Our Stars 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
18:45, Newcastle

Experienced sort that has won 8 times, including four times this year. Fourth run for us after coming to us back in June, but won well on first run for up at Epsom. Two fair runs since and the last of those came in a better race too than the one he won. Has the pace to come with the drop back to 1m here, but also has stamina for further which will help in the closing stages if able to keep tabs. Very tough race for the grade though, but 6 of his 8 career runs came on the AW so looking forward to seeing how he gets on here at Newcastle. Small e/w chance.

Andaleep 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
18:15, Newcastle

Got a bit far back in a slowly run race at Windsor last time when finishing fourth in a racing league race. Should remain competitive in a similar event and has held his condition and form remarkably for a horse who has had a busy schedule.

Vanity Affair 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
18:15, Newcastle

Another of ours running at the Racing League card with a consistent profile. Came back from a 2 month break to run a fair second at Kempton last time out and has improved for that run. CD winner here at Newcastle too and Hayley rides this one too. Each-way claims.

Wynter Wildes 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
17:45, Newcastle

One of our better chances on the day - consistent sort and won well here at Newcastle last time out in another Racing League contest so we are back for more. Up 4lbs for that win so more on her plate but has recovered well from the 3 weeks off and Hayley back to ride (knows the horse well). Tough and competitive race, but we head here with every chance and looks to have a solid e/w chance.

Inchbae 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
17:35, Yarmouth

Ran better at Southwell last time out when dropped back to a mile, but still only had 4 runs and work in progress. Back on the grass today and we feel there is more to come, but back up in grade so really overall just be happy with an improved run.

Fai Fai 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
17:05, Yarmouth

Came to us in the summer from the Andre Fabre yard in France. First run came back in June at the Royal Meeting at Ascot and was slowly away that day and lost all chance. Had time off since for us to get to know the horse and the visor is on today too. Into calmer waters and the step up to 6f will help, so better expected but we'll find out more here today.

Reckon Im Hot 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
17:00, Chelmsford

13 race maiden but has hit the top three 4 times and we feel he's capable of winning a race like this. Fourth the last day at Lingfield and third at Wolves the time before. Down a pound helps and freshened up with 2 months off. Could be vulnerable to a lesser exposed sort, like the Tate horse, but would have place chances again.

Iconique 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
16:30, Yarmouth

CD winner that hasn't been beaten far the last twice here. Down another 2lbs here and only 2lbs higher than last winning mark. Any rain would help and top jockey booked to ride (Andrea Atzeni). Would have e/w claims.

Aussie Mystic 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
14:10, Yarmouth

Well-bred colt but is having his debut run today so very much first day at school. Will learn a lot and nice to get going with him over this mile, but hoping he'll get a bit further in time too.

Queens Company 
Thu 15th Sep 2022
13:35, Yarmouth

Queen’s Company ran well to finish 2nd on last run over C&D after a break when we thought she would have needed the run. She is in similar race here and same mark, ground will be fine. We hope she has an e/w chance again.

Deceit 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
17:10, Sandown

Came to us from Ireland and ran down the field on debut for us at Windsor last time, but needed the run that day. 4lbs lower here helps and after taking a bit of a hold the drop back to 1m2f will suit. Still finding our feet a bit with her, but the softer ground should help and hopeful of an improved run from last time.

Moonis 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
16:40, Sandown

First run for us after coming from the Roger Varian yard. Has also been gelded since his last run, which also came here at Sandown. We know the track is fine and despite not winning yet has only run 4 times and shown promise. Travelled well in his last race but didn't seem to stay the 1m6f trip, so the shorter 1m2f distance here should suit, plus the softer ground a plus.

Atomise 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
14:10, Yarmouth

Atomise should have won a race this year but everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong. Last time out she was drawn on the wing and got no cover. She is well drawn today, the stiff six should be perfect  and the easier ground is ideal. She should go close

Heers Sadie 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
14:10, Yarmouth

Heer’s Sadie has been struggling on the quick ground this summer, her last good run when she was second was on soft ground. Easy ground here and claiming 5lb with Molly Phillips but up in grade which is a worry, I hope that she will not be out classed, we take our chance and hope she runs well.

Katyusha 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
14:10, Yarmouth

Katyusha is the most frustrating filly to train. She is always last off the bridle and looks like winning but fails to find anything. Hopefully the drop back to 6 furlongs will suit as she is not short of speed

Initiate 
Wed 14th Sep 2022
14:10, Yarmouth

Initiate has been disappointing but she has been given too high a handicap mark, we are hoping for some improvement on slower ground and claiming 7lb with Rose Dawes. Just hoping for a better run and some encouragement.

Valentine Blues 
Tue 13th Sep 2022
20:30, Wolverhampton

Won on debut run for us last time here after coming from the Tom Ward yard. Had settled in well but was still a slightly surprising win. Up just 3lbs for that and should improve for it as it came off 11 months away from the track too. Drawn a bit wider in 9 here (5 last time) so needs to get over that, but seems well and can't be ruled out again.

Poet 
Tue 13th Sep 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

Winner at Kempton last December - sole career success and when trained by Roger Varian. Will be better for last run at Southwell as it came off a break. Only third run for us here too so more to come and has run well over this 7f trip in the past so that gives up hope too.

Kittens Dream    WINNER! winner
Tue 13th Sep 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Grabbed his fourth career win here last time out - just 2 weeks ago. Has come out of that race well and only 3lbs higher. Dale continues in the saddle too and even though this is a step back up in trip has won over 2m in the past. Master Grey and Captain Howse look to have similar chances, but we should not be far away.

Harmonious 
Tue 13th Sep 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Comes with a few risks as didn't fancy it at the start the last day at Southwell and was slowly away. Up to 2m here (from 1m6f) and dropped a pound in the ratings too. Certainly has the ability to win a race like this but is 21 races without a win and after last time a bit risky. Small e/w chance really.

Samara Star 
Tue 13th Sep 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Third runner in here for us and looks the outsider of our trio. Needed the run back the last day at Wolves when down the field over 1m6f. Only had 8 career runs so more to come and we think this step up to 2m is worth a try. Only career win also came here at Wolverhampton on debut when trained by the Crisford yard so that's a plus. Better on the cards today, but probably best watched for now.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Tue 13th Sep 2022
17:25, Wolverhampton

Been running well of late without winning - hitting the top three in his last three races. Same mark as when last seen running second here just 10 days ago in a similar race and a repeat of that would see him go close. Niggle is the wide draw in 13 though, so might need a bit of luck from there.

Point Louise    WINNER! winner
Tue 13th Sep 2022
17:25, Wolverhampton

Two career wins from 19 runs but often never far away in her races. Fourth last time at Ffos Las and only 1 3/4 off the winner that day. Back to Wolves helps as only AW win came here. She also seems to run well for the girls so Saffie back on today and helping to claim 3lbs. Nice draw in 5 and continues to hold her form well at home. Looks to have a nice e/w chance.

Cumulonimbus    WINNER! winner
Tue 13th Sep 2022
15:55, Yarmouth

Needed the run back last time after 3 months off. That was also his first from being gelded so we've given him time to get over that too. Hollie a plus in the saddle and back on the grass will help. No shock to see a step forward here with the handicapper dropping him a few pounds too. Fair e/w chance.

Virgo 
Tue 13th Sep 2022
13:43, Redcar

8 race maiden but has shjown ability in and around this level. Back on the grass here after running third on the AW at Wolves last time and off the same mark. Capable rider that claims 7lbs but apprentice race and so probably not one to get too involved in. Our horse is well though and we think there is more to come on the grass with this only his thirdd run on it. Each-way.

Treble Joy 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

A touch of the seconds at the moment with three silvers in as many runs. Ran well behind a Royal runner last time at Lingfield over this trip and being the most experienced in the race we'd like to think that will help. The unraced Gosden horse is an unknown and some other lesser exposed runners too, but we've got the form in the book and we'd be disappointed if he's not in the shake-up.

Aira Force    WINNER! winner
Mon 12th Sep 2022
17:30, Kempton Park

Aira Force has improved with each start and finished strongly over five last time. The step up to six should be a plus in a race we won a couple of seasons ago with Chitra who won 7 for us. The wide draw isn’t idea.

Voodoo Ray    WINNER! winner
Mon 12th Sep 2022
16:30, Brighton

8 race maiden and was a beaten favourite last time here in a Classified Stakes race, so a bit to answer at the moment. Handicapper has given him a chance though by dropping him another 3lbs and is now 8lbs lower than when last seen in a handicap. Aidan also rides to take off 5lbs and we feel the cheekpieces on today will help him settle better. Favourite has an obvious chance - Redredrobin - but with a light weight (8-6) and the jockey's claim, we'd be hopeful of getting involved. Each-way.

Platinum Prince 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
16:00, Brighton

Likely to be our best chance on the day - won his last two in great fashion with the last of those coming here at Brighton last week. Same grade here and escapes a penalty for that win as it was an apprentice race. Anna rides again to take off 7lbs and the slight give in the ground this time is okay too. Should have a big chance.

Night Eagle 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
15:30, Brighton

Had a small break since his last race when 6th here at Brighton last month. Down a pound for that run here and back into a Class 5 (from Class 4) will make life easier. Tom has won on the horse in the past too and back riding, so we come here with a leading each-way chance.

Donnie Azoff 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
15:10, Worcester

Donnie was placed in all three bumpers but then picked up an injury, and missed last season.  He was a very creditable 2nd earlier this summer after being off the track for just shy of 600 days.  We've given him time since that run, and he can only improve going forwards.  This race looks quite competitive, but he should be bang there at the end....

Promotion 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
15:00, Brighton

Promotion been unlucky not to win a race. Ground is an unknown but sires progeny often relish give. Again a big field apprentice race so not the best of betting heats.

Reel Power 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
15:00, Brighton

Only had three career runs, but first time into a handicap here today will help. We'll learn more here and first try over this 1m2f distance is expected to suit. Work in progress still

Henley Park 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
15:00, Brighton

We won this race last year. This 5 year-old will be better for his last run as it came off a 6 month break. Same mark but Aidan booked to ride and take off 3lbs this time. Switch to turf is fine and only had four career runs on the grass. Overall, probably has a bit to find, but hopeful of taking a step forward from last time.

Big Bard 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
13:50, Brighton

Ran well to be second here last week - we take on the horse that beat us again - Red Alert - but are 4lbs better off this time. Travelled well into the race last time and so we think the drop back to 6f here will be fine. Expected to have a leading each-way chance.

Fen Tiger    WINNER! winner
Mon 12th Sep 2022
13:40, Thirsk

Fen Tiger has been running well all year but the key to him is the ground and the step up in trip. He has the soft ground he needs here, stays 1m4f and Fred Larson has won on him. With all conditions right for him we hope he has an excellent chance of winning with luck in-running.

Eminent Angel 
Mon 12th Sep 2022
13:40, Thirsk

Eminent Angel step up on trip needs to suit as doesn’t have the pace for shorter trips. Apprentice race with a big field so needs luck.

Mr Curiosity 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
17:05, Doncaster

Mr Curiosity had a setback in the spring and then has had to wait for soft ground. Finally it's come at a track that should suit him really well. He will definitely come on for the run but he has his perfect conditions.

Atrium    WINNER! winner
Sun 11th Sep 2022
16:30, Doncaster

Atrium is another horse that has done us proud this year. He will love the soft ground and Doncaster will suit him perfectly. We have the right jockey on board.

Moondial 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
16:20, Chepstow

Moondial opened her account last time at Kempton but these are significantly different conditions with the ground in particular being a bit of a concern. She has met some of these before and there may not be too much between them. Each-way chances.

Danah Star 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
15:40, Chepstow

Danah Star has her first run for us after a few outings in France. The French rating is hard to equate in what looks a small but competitive field. She's a nice tough filly who might need this run off a break.

Marbaan 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
15:35, Curragh

Marbaan has been a star all year, winning the Group 2 Vintage Stakes last time at Goodwood. We think the track will suit him and any further rain will be a positive. Aesop's Fables is very highly regarded and will be tough to beat but we could be second.

Motagally 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
14:10, Doncaster

Motagally didn't run  too badly in the Beverley Bullet, his first race of the year and stable debut last month. His mark has already come down a handy amount and with the run under his belt we can anticipate an improved display in this always-competitive sprint.

Zargun 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
14:10, Doncaster

Whether Zargiun runs here or in his earlier engagement, he will need to step up appreciably on what he has shown us lately.

Zargun 
Sun 11th Sep 2022
13:00, Doncaster

We'll make a late decision on whether to run Zargun in this race of 6.5 furlongs or the furlong shorter Portland later on. He's not been in the greatest of form, but has the ability to step up to this level on past performances.

Marnie James 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
20:45, Southwell

Continues to slip down the handicap and looks well-treated off a mark of 74, but is 25 races without a win now. Has run okay the last three times though and not beaten far in those races. Open race though so only small place chances based on his wins to runs ratio at the moment.

Smokey Malone 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
20:05, Chelmsford

Smokey Malone has won at the track. Dylan Hogan who rides him thinks he wants this trip. He has been very consistent this year and is in the right grade. He should have a good e/w chance.

Seven Brothers 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
19:45, Southwell

Took a step forward last time out at Windsor in another Racing League race last week. Has come out of that well and off the same mark here. First try on the AW though (any track) so a bit of an unknown in race conditions but we think he'll like it. Connor rides again too and feel he's got a decent e/w chance here.

Fai Fai 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
19:45, Southwell

Came to us from France, where he had 4 runs. Debut for us last time at Ascot at the Royal Meeting so highly-tried there. We've given him plenty of time to get over that (3 months) and the ease in grade and step up to 6f will help. Work in progress still - hopeful of better, but just be happy with an improved run.

Reckon Im Hot 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
19:35, Chelmsford

Been running well without winning so a bit disappointing that he comes here 13 races without a win. 1lb lower than last time at Lingfield but has run well here at Chelmsford in the past so the switch to this track is fine. Each-way chance in an open race outside the Williams horse Manettino.

Star Zinc 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
19:15, Southwell

5 race maiden but took a step forward the last day at Haydock on first run back from being gelded. Only beaten a neck that day and it also came off a 3 month break. Not the best draw in 12 to overcome here but the low weight helps and we feel it won't be long before he's getting off the mark. Each-way.

Tequilamockingbird 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
18:15, Southwell

Another recent winner for us - winning at Kempton last month. Up 4lbs for that and is 2-from-2 on the AW so hopeful her first run here will be fine. Competitive but has done well over the last 4 weeks and we come here with place chances. Hayley rides.

Proud Fairy    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Sep 2022
18:05, Chelmsford

6-race maiden but has shown ability in her races. Not beaten far the last day at Wolverhampton and 2lbs lower this time and also into a handicap for the first time. Back to 7f is fine, but has a wide draw to deal with so only e/w chance with the Holland runner - Silks Pass - setting a fair standard.

Lasting Legacy 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
17:45, Southwell

Neck winner at Wolves the last day - but showed a good attitude that day. Up only 2lbs here so not without a squeak, but does look a harder race. The drop back to 1m3f is fine though and no reason why the track won't suit (first run here). Each-way.

Teruntum Star    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Sep 2022
17:28, Doncaster

First run for us after coming from the Dave Griffiths yard. Experienced sort that has dropped to a low rating (career-low). We'll learn more here but hopeful there will be another race or two in the old boy over the winter at some point.

Lucky Beggar 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
17:28, Doncaster

Another old-timer that his having his 127th run today. Fit and well, but no easy task here having to run 12lbs out of the handicap. Jockey's 7lb claim helps - in good form, but a tall order so just hoping for a solid run really.

Duke Of Firenze 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
16:55, Doncaster

Career-low mark here for this 13 year-old and having his 129th run today. Still loving his racing and low weight (8-8) helps with the jockey taking off 7lbs more too. Should enjoy the extra 1/2 a furlong too and had excuses the last twice being slowly away. 20 races without a win, but hard to rule out off this lowly mark. Small e/w.

Masqool 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
16:10, Chepstow

Drop back in trip unlikely to suit unless ground genuinely soft. The more rain the better to bring his stamina into play.
Tough consistent gelding who cant be ruled out if things drop right for him.

Plymouth Rock 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
16:00, Epsom

Better for last run here after a break and is 3lbs lower this time too - was still only beaten 5 1/2 lengths. Eased in grade here will also help but if improving on that last run then not without a chance of running better than his odds - especially as the horse will love the rain and the softer ground.

Landlordtothestars 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
15:35, Chepstow

Massive 2yo who ran green on his debut but aquitted himself well in the end. Likely to be slowly away as he barely fits into the stalls but if he can get into a rythm a bit earlier than on debut he should show a bit more today. Looks to be some useful youngsters on show in this so race difficult to asses his chances.

Starspangledjama 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
15:25, Epsom

Third run last time so gets in here with a handicap mark. Also stepping up to 1m4f here as been looking a bit outpaced over shorter. Bit of a fact-finding mission here but expected to go forward in the next runs now he's got a mark. Best-watched for now.

Semser 
Thu 8th Sep 2022
14:50, Epsom

Winner last time at Chelmsford but back on the grass here today and a bit to prove on the turf with all three wins so far coming on the AW. Is fit and well though and only 4lbs higher than last time. Track an unknown too but the trip is fine. Would probably not want the ground too soft either.

Polly Pott    WINNER! winner

Cracking winner for Harry Dunlop.


Thu 8th Sep 2022
14:35, Doncaster

In flying form at the moment - winning her last three from 5 1/2f to 1m 1/2. Therefore an improving and versatile filly but in at the deepend here in this Group 2. Rated 35lbs lower than the fav - Dance In The Grass - so that tells it's own story. But Polly is thriving at the moment and we know she stays this trip - could outrun her odds in a race that lacks depth.

Mintana    WINNER! winner
Thu 8th Sep 2022
13:50, Chepstow

Likeable filly who is still learning but going the right way. Back in trip so soft ground will be needed to give her a small e/w chance.

Bungle Bay 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Has ability and if Mollie Phillips can get him to settle he could run well if the gaps come for him. Ew chance

Escape Free 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Very happy with her debut run at Wolverhampton (5th of 10). Has come out of that race well and we think the longer trip here will be in her favour. Can take a step forward but the first three in the betting are likely to fight this one out.

Shenzhen Subway 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
19:30, Kempton Park

Back from a break here today. First run for us after coming from the Jamie Osborne yard, but today is very much a fact-finding mission on what his also only his third career run - will get a handicap mark after today.

Entrancement 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
17:30, Kempton Park

Shown fair form to date from opening three runs - into a handicap here for the first time will help and we also feel the step up to a mile will bring out more. David Probert, who rode on debut, gets the call again. Needs to improve but each-way chance.

Shahbaz 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
16:45, Doncaster

I ran Shabhaz at the wrong track last time out and he just got done for some toe before staying on when the race was all over. This will be much more up his street and he can go well at a track that should suit him perfectly

Adaay In Asia 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
15:35, Doncaster

Been in super form this season - winning her last four with the last three coming at the big Goodwood, Ascot and York festivals. Up into a Listed race here for the first time and therefore a bit to find on these terms. But is improving still and could be more to come over this 7f with last time over it only her first try at this trip. Deserves to take her chance and could easily surprise again. Each-way chance.

Ebury 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
15:00, Doncaster

Legends race so delighted to have a runner in it and we've got the 'angry ant' Gary Bardwell riding - who won this race last year. Ebury is in good form but has a bit to prove at the moment with 23 runs without a win. Very well treated on old form though and ran well here back in June (4th). Probably not a race to get too involved in, but could sneak a place.

Chapmanshype    WINNER! winner
Wed 7th Sep 2022
14:40, Uttoxeter

A prolific winner, having won 9 of his 25 starts.  Having won six handicap hurdles earlier in his career, he won on chasing debut in impressive fashion last summer.  However, he rather scared himself that day, and although placed on his next two starts, he didn’t look a natural chaser.  Back over hurdles, he took a while to come back to himself, and for his mark to slip to where could be competitive again.  However, it all fell right with an authoritative win at Newton Abbot in July, and he is now our winning most horse ever – what a legend! He has to back that up again here, but as long as the ground isn't soft here, then he'd have another chance.....

Dark Shot 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
13:50, Doncaster

98th career run here today - has been a bit in-and-out this season and yet to win a race this year. But has dropped to a fair mark that is 11lbs lower than the start of the year. Kieran takes off 3lbs this time too and ran well here in June (4th). Super tough race but is fit and well - not without a small e/w chance.

Lockandload 
Wed 7th Sep 2022
13:30, Uttoxeter

Lacks a bit of confidence at the moment but if she jumps a bit better with experience she could make the frame.

Aggagio    WINNER! winner
Tue 6th Sep 2022
15:40, Goodwood

Loves it here and seems to bring out the best in him. Only just touched off over the course last time over 1m6f and is up to 2m this time. The longer trip will be fine and is only 2lbs higher. The first two pulled clear of the rest the last day too. More on his plate in this better graded race but has 5lbs less in racing weight as a result and that will help. Should have a big chance.

Fiscal Policy 
Tue 6th Sep 2022
15:30, Catterick

Was very green on his debut, hopefully he can put in a more professional performance today.

Fascinating Lips 
Tue 6th Sep 2022
13:55, Goodwood

In good form with two seconds and a win from his three runs this year. 3 weeks to get over the last run and seems well at home. Back on the grass today too is okay and won't mind the slight ease in the ground. Mujid could be ahead of the handicapper still and might be hard to beat but we'd have an e/w chance.

Mrs Meader    WINNER! winner
Tue 6th Sep 2022
13:00, Leicester

Mrs Meader has been in good form this year, back to Leicester where she ran well last run. Sam Feilden rides her and knows her well, he claims 5lb which is a bonus. Any overnight rain will help. She should have an ew chance again.

Pure Bubbles 
Mon 5th Sep 2022
15:40, Brighton

0-from-15 with runs on the flat and three over hurdles. Back on the level here and 3lbs lower than when last seen on the lfat back in April. Is a race for horse that haven't won a race in 2022. Dropped into a Class 5 helps and stays this 1m2f well. Each-way chance. 

Big Bard    WINNER! winner
Mon 5th Sep 2022
14:40, Brighton

Course winner here over 6f so a bit to prove over this longer trip of 7f. But has only run once over this trip in the past. Only 2lbs higher than last winning mark and Tom back riding, who has won on the horse before too. Has improved for his last race too as it came off a 2 month break. Expected to go well, if lasting out the trip.

Platinum Prince    WINNER! winner
Mon 5th Sep 2022
13:00, Brighton

One of three in the race for us and looks our slightly better chance of getting something. Won at Nottingham last time out and very consistent profile of late with four top-3 finishes in recent outings. Anna rides again to claim 7lbs and has run well here at Brighton before. Should not be far away.

Celestial Point 
Mon 5th Sep 2022
13:00, Brighton

Third runner in the race for us. Down the field last time out here but is back up to a mile and dropped in grade again into a Class 6. That will give us a much better chance and has been freshened up with 2 months off. Should have a leading e/w chance.

Aiguillette 
Mon 5th Sep 2022
13:00, Brighton

Another in the race for us. Only career win so far came on the AW back at Lingfield last summer - from 24 runs. Back on the grass here today and returns on a 2lb lower mark than last time and jockey can take off another 7lbs. Has run here at Brighton a few times and a little bit to prove at the seaside track but we'd like to think he'd have e/w claims off the low rating. 

Executive Pool 
Sun 4th Sep 2022
15:15, Fontwell Park

Executive Pool was consistent in his three starts on the flat this summer after being gelded but at a modest level. He stays a mile-and-a-half well so ought to get the trip jumping but is at an experience disadvantage with a couple of these while the Milton Harris horse is rated 20lb higher and has recent form in a hot handicap. One to watch today.

Nazwa 
Sun 4th Sep 2022
14:05, Fontwell Park

Nazwa was bred to run on the flat but he managed only one run before an aversion to the stalls effectively ruled that out as he refused to enter them before his propsed second start. He has done well for us over hurdles and won twice in May before a disappointing latest effort at Worcester the following month. He's had a nice break and as this is a strong race I've decided to run him in blinkers for the first time. Hopeful he will run his race.

Valentine Blues    WINNER! winner
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
19:30, Wolverhampton

Valentine Blues has been off for almost a year since her final run for Tom Ward for whom she had some placed runs without managing a win. She has been shaping okay at home and has a decent draw and jockey for tonight's stable debut. Expecting a solid showing on stable debut.

Ornate 
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
19:00, Wolverhampton

Ornate's great asset is his speed from the gate, so when he completely missed it at Southwell on Monday, the die was cast. If he could get away tonight in his more usual manner he could be a factor for a long way although he has been running disappointingly of late.

Sea The Clouds    WINNER! winner
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
17:19, Stratford upon Avon

Sea The Clouds is a well-bred gelding who has been placed in all three of his bumpers. He had a good break over the summer and has been working well recently. We were going to send him over hurdles, but this bumper was looking as though it would cut up and I thought it too good an opportunity to miss. Big chance and a worthy favourite.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
16:40, Wolverhampton

It's ages since Harbour Vision last won but he has been running consistently of late. If he could match his run two outings back when runner-up here behind Helm Rock he would represent excellent each-way value.

Don't Tell Claire    WINNER! winner
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
16:20, Ascot

Don't Tell Claire won this race last year off just 1lb lower but she's had a series of hard-luck stories this season. She will need everything to go right and be at the top of her game as there are some improving types who have already shown plenty of ability.

Helm Rock 
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
14:40, Kempton Park

Helm Rock is going for the final of this series and understandably there is a big competitive field seeking the big bucks. He is not one of the most obvious contenders but as they say you have to be in it to win ot.

Oj Lifestyle 
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
14:00, Ascot

We're not known as a two-year-old stable so when Oj Lifestyle won at 125/1 at Newbury to give us our only juvenile winner so far this year, the win came with a fair amount of head-scratching. We hope he can follow up here to prove himself a decent performer.

Alpha Crucis 
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
14:00, Ascot

Alpha Crucis is a son of  Australia from a nice female famile. He is our back up to Oj Lifestyle and we are looking forward to getting him on the track.

Aiguillette 
Sat 3rd Sep 2022
13:00, Kempton Park

Aiguilllette was running well at this time last year when he gained his only career success to date. He was slightly disappointing when given a decent chance at Lingfield five weeks ago and his difficult draw makes this a far from obvious opportunity. 

Nova Vida 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
19:20, Kempton Park

Last seen running down the field at Lingfield back in March. Will improve for the run after the break and also another of ours that will be better off once getting a handicap mark, which she will after today's run.

Charming Lily 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
18:50, Kempton Park

Nice filly but like a lot of ours first time out will learn a lot from the experience and taking on a Godolphin horse that have also won and had two runs so will have the experience edge over us here.

Victory House 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
18:50, Kempton Park

Has been incredibly disappointing as he works well at home but has shown absolutely nothing on the track. The visor needs to bring out some serious improvement.

Larrsen 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
18:20, Kempton Park

Hard to get too excited after opening two runs. Down the field both times but on a plus will get a handicap mark after today and that will help. Work in progress.

Moondial    WINNER! winner
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
17:50, Kempton Park

Drops back a furlong, has run competitively since switched to nurseries over seven and a mile and should once again be involved. The small drop in class hopefully enough to make the difference.

Magnificent Millie 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
17:50, Kempton Park

Three promising runs to date and qualifies for a handicap now based on that. Starting her off in a Class 6 and looks on a fair mark so hopeful of a better run here today. Luke rides and probably needs to improve again but is lightly-raced and that's certainly possible - we come here with a decent e/w chance.

Mintana 
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
17:50, Kempton Park

Likeable filly who seems to be going the right way.
Started handicapping in a higher grade and not disgraced. Difficult to assess all these youngsters but we hope she can show something today. Ew chance

Rose Fandango    WINNER! winner
Fri 2nd Sep 2022
16:48, Haydock

Running well at the moment but is yet to win on the turf. That said, has only had 2 runs on the grass and was a solid second here at Haydock three runs back. Only 2lbs higher here but the drop back from 7f to a mile will help. If running to that form again here will be in the mix.

Andaleep 
Thu 1st Sep 2022
19:30, Windsor

Proved up to the jump in class last time to land the hat trick when posting a career best. Will likely need to find a bit more again here, great prize money so let’s hope he can.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Thu 1st Sep 2022
19:30, Windsor

Lost little in defeat the last twice in strong handicaps. Eased 1lb in another deep race here. If things drop right he should be thereabouts. Each-way chance.

Seven Brothers    WINNER! winner
Thu 1st Sep 2022
17:30, Windsor

Fair debut run for us at Haydock the last day when 4th of 17. Down a pound for that here helps but this looks another tough and competitive race. Probably handicapped about right though so would likely need to find a bit from somewhere as been in and around this mark for a while now with just one win. Decent pot though and the horses are running okay, so worth a stab. Small e/w chance with Connor Beasley taking over in the saddle.

Night Fever 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
19:40, Worcester

Night Fever is by Dylan Thomas out of a winning High Chaparral flat mare, whose sisters were both Listed winners over 1m and 1m3. Night Fever was a winner on the flat in Germany over 1m1, and was 2nd over 2 miles. She was bought last summer, with the plan of going hurdling this summer. She was a good 3rd on her hurdling debut, but her jumping wasn't up to scratch on her second start.  She ran well last time out back here at Worcester over these brush hurdles, and after a recent wind operation, she makes her handicap debut tonight. Place chance.

Jersey Wonder 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
18:10, Worcester

Jersey Wonder is a cheeky character who has had a busy life, initially as a useful staying handicapper on the flat. He needs an end-to-end gallop over hurdles nowadays and that wasn't the case last time. We're fitting a first-time visor, which could also help. Each-way chance at a nice price.

Cape Robin 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
16:40, Worcester

Course winner but a bit to answer at the moment, pulling up here the last day in June. Has had a wind op since though and hopeful that's going to help as been getting tired in his races. Only 3lbs higher than last win gives us hope and Charlie rides to take off 3lbs as well. But just happy to get going with him again and first run back for 3 months and after the op suggests a watching brief until we see a return to form. On a plus, will love the ground.

La Rav 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
15:30, Lingfield

Only third run for us since coming from the Easterby yard. Has plenty of experience though (29 races) and has won 5 times. Nice third last time at Brighton too over a mile so looks to be running into form. Well drawn in 4 and has had 4 weeks to get over the run. Should be going close with Neil Callan riding.

Treble Joy    WINNER! winner
Wed 31st Aug 2022
15:00, Lingfield

Ran a solid second the last twice at Kempton and here at Lingfield. Had around 3 weeks off to get over the last run and seems to have improved at home since. The Hughes and Royal runner (who Ryan rides) are the obvious dangers, but we come here hopeful of a nice run and should be going close.

Harmonious 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
14:50, Southwell

Only ran a few days ago here but was slowly away and never got back into the race. Before that had run well over 1m4f, so on that run (2nd) would certainly have a chance. Trying him back up to 1m6f and seems okay after that recent run. But is a 20 race maiden so comes with risks and hard to get too excited despite having the ability to win a race like this if in the mood.

Poet 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
14:20, Southwell

Only career win came at Kempton back last December. Off the same mark as that win, which also came when trained by Roger Varian. Only second run for us so we are still finding our feet and not been out since March so likely to need the run here.

Fierce    WINNER! winner
Wed 31st Aug 2022
14:00, Lingfield

Only had two outings, but is getting better with each run. Beaten just over 4 lengths last time at Sandown on only second run and eased slightly in grade here will help. Will probably want a bit further in time, but will get a handicap mark after today and that will help. The Simcock runner looks the obvious call here.

Kittens Dream    WINNER! winner
Wed 31st Aug 2022
13:40, Wolverhampton

Two fair runs here recently over 1m4f and 2m, so we are trying 1m6f this time. Hung a bit left the last day so will need to iron that out and dropped a pound helps. Dale Swift takes over in the saddle to mix it up and even though the Hollie Doyle runner - La Belle Vie - is respected we'd have decent e/w claims.

Morning Symphony 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
13:40, Wolverhampton

By Shamardal out of a half-sister to St Leger winner, Encke. Morning Symphony won on her handicap debut on the flat when stepped up to 1m4. She has been bought to go jumping this summer, but unfortunately she's not had much luck jumping so far, so we're back on the flat here. She should run well, granted a clear run.

Heers Sadie 
Wed 31st Aug 2022
13:20, Southwell

Heer’s Sadie is now below her last winning mark, she showed a return to form last run but she does like some cut in the ground ideally, first try at Southwell with Sam Feilden on board who knows her well, we think track and trip should suit her. Hopefully she has an ew chance at a good price

Buckos Boy 
Tue 30th Aug 2022
17:40, Newton Abbot

Bucko's Boy is out of a mare we used to train who won a couple of bumpers and over hurdles, this son of Midnight Legend won a bumper at Hexham.  After a couple of frustrating falls over hurdles, he won a maiden hurdle last season at Fakenham.  However, things didn't fall his way through the winter.  After a break, he showed improved form to be 2nd at Hexham in May when dropped back in trip and with the application of cheek pieces he wasn't beaten far into 3rd at Fontwell.  He ran well at Stratford when stepped up in class, and deservedly got his head in front last time out at Newton.  Up 8lbs here, he should run well again as he is in great order at home, but has to improve again off this kind of mark. 

Makety 
Tue 30th Aug 2022
17:05, Newton Abbot

Makety was due to run last week but she didn't eat up the night before so we didn't risk it. She's been fine since and while she disappointed last time at Worcester that was her first outing after a break and she is fitter now. Just a four-horse race and she should be in there pitching.

Voodoo Ray

Three Beauz 
Tue 30th Aug 2022
13:30, Ripon

Three Beauz ran well first time at Yarmouth but disappointed next run at Nottingham for no apparent reason, she would need to put that run behind her but this still looks a hot race so just hoping for a better run.

Kilchreest Moon    WINNER! winner
Mon 29th Aug 2022
17:10, Cartmel

Won well at Newton Abbot back in June but made too many mistakes last time at Stratford last time. We gave him a month off after that run and the step back up in trip here will help. Acts well on the good ground too and in a race that lacks depth behind the short favourite - Ange Endormi - we'd have place chances.

Cool Spirit 
Mon 29th Aug 2022
17:05, Southwell

Not beaten far recently at Lingfield - just over 2 lengths - and gets in here off the same mark. Has come out of that race well and is a past course winner here at Southwell. Nice draw in 5 and another that should have a fair e/w chance today.

Zulu Girl 
Mon 29th Aug 2022
17:00, Epsom

Zulu Girl has been enigmatic this season, should handle the track based on her successes at Brighton

Sausalito 
Mon 29th Aug 2022
17:00, Epsom

Debut run for us after coming from the Clive Cox yard. Has been gelded since his last run too and only raced three times so that gives us something to work with. No wins to date, finishing 7th in all three runs, but has shown promise so this first run in a handicap will help. We’ll learn more today too and the first-time hood will help. Probably best watched on this occasion but no shock to see a bit better and one to note going forward.

Harmonious 
Mon 29th Aug 2022
14:45, Southwell

Open race but should have a fair e/w chance if running to the level that saw him finish second here last time out. Get in here off the same mark and handles this track and surface well. Yet to win a race from 19 runs though is the negative, but this ease in grade helps and would have small e/w claims.

Ornate 
Mon 29th Aug 2022
14:10, Southwell

In good shape and the visor is on today as ran well in it in the past. Not getting any younger but still has ability in and around this level and very well-treated on old form - rated 68 and was 98 last summer. Nice draw in 4 and is a course winner too, plus did a nice piece of work on the track recently. Each-way chance.

Aira Force    WINNER! winner
Mon 29th Aug 2022
13:35, Southwell

Aira Force quick filly who probably wasn’t seen to beat effect last time out when hampered coming out the gates and getting a tricky trip.

Silastar 
Sun 28th Aug 2022
16:45, Goodwood

Silastar found going left-handed at Epsom and fast ground there not suiting him last time. Now with give in the ground and a top amateur to ride, it would not be a major surprise if he were to bounce back with a win.

Queen's Company    WINNER! winner
Sun 28th Aug 2022
16:35, Yarmouth

Queen's Company came back from Chelmsford after her last run quite jarred up so she has been given time to recover. She has gone well at Yarmouth as a two-year-old but after the break may well run fresh so we hope she will improve for the outing.

Duke Of Firenze 
Sun 28th Aug 2022
16:25, Beverley

Duke Of Firenze's race didn't pan out as planned last time at Wolverhampton. He comes here in grand form, has a good draw and an excellent jockey booking. All set for a really nice run from the old boy.

Via Serendipity 
Sun 28th Aug 2022
14:15, Yarmouth

Via Serendipity had a nice win at Sandown in June but has struggled, albeit in decent company, in three runs since. He has never raced as far as 1m2f. If he stays and is in the same form as at Sandown, he would surely go very close. Each-way chance.

Sunset Salute 
Sun 28th Aug 2022
13:40, Yarmouth

Sunset Salute has been very disappointing and is not in love with the game. We are trying new headgear and he needs to find some improvement  or this could be his last chance.

Travesuras    WINNER! winner
Sat 27th Aug 2022
19:35, Windsor

Travesarus travelled like a winner last time before finishing tamely into third over this course and distance where he had won his previous race. The ground was very quick last time and he didn't let himself down on it. The surface should be fine today.

Deceit 
Sat 27th Aug 2022
19:35, Windsor

We bought Deceit out of the Johnny Murtagh yard last month. He won once but otherwise had some ordinary performances too and we will look forward to gauging where he fits in the UK handicap after tonight's stable debut.

Injazati 
Sat 27th Aug 2022
18:05, Windsor

Injazati has been off for a while but is ready to rock and roll. The ground is perfect for him and I think the track will suit. He should be thereabouts.

Aggagio 
Sat 27th Aug 2022
17:20, Goodwood

Aggagio won both his starts here over two miles and then today's trip in May and June and then had a ten-week break before returning at Sandown on Sunday. He ran promisingly there, finishing a close fifth and hopefully that will have put him right for today. The ease in the ground will suit and he is clearly our best chance on the day.

Junkanoo 
Sat 27th Aug 2022
16:45, Goodwood

Junkanoo was a winner over this CD at the Glorious meeting two years ago but after missing all of last season, he has yet to approach that form in two runs this time. First-time blinkers could bring an improvement and off bottom weight and a reduced mark he is no forlorn hope.

Vadream    WINNER! winner
Sat 27th Aug 2022
15:15, Newmarket

Vadream has not reached the heights she did in 2021 but all her best form was on soft ground and she gets to run on it for the first time this year. Her work is as good as ever and I am hopeful of a big run.

Motagally 
Sat 27th Aug 2022
14:40, Beverley

Motagally is a smart sprinter we bought from the Shadwell dispersal out of the Charlie Hills yard last autumn. We haven't been able to get him on the track until now but he was fourth in the Ayr Gold Cup on his penultimate start and is a little lower in the handicap now. Interesting to see where we are with him but at his best he would make them all go. I hope he is in that kind of form.

Fai Fai 
Fri 26th Aug 2022
16:25, Ffos Las

Fai Fai hated the ground at Ascot and we have been waiting for the rain for him ever since. The track should suit and the visor has had a positive effect at home.

Atlantic Heart    WINNER! winner
Fri 26th Aug 2022
15:52, Ffos Las

Atlantic Heart has been there or thereabouts in recent starts and we are putting on first-time blinkers today in an attempt to get the last bit extra needed to get her head in front. Based on her sire, softer going than has been prevalent lately ought to a plus. Good chance.

Victory House 
Fri 26th Aug 2022
14:10, Ffos Las

Victory House fluffed his lines on debut but is much better than he showed that day. He should enjoy the ground and has improved for the first run. He can put it behind him here.

Madame Peltier 
Fri 26th Aug 2022
14:00, Newmarket

Madame Peltier has been really disappointing this year as she has been much too keen in her races, failing to get home. The drop to seven furlongs should suit and the ground will be perfect. She has a bit to prove but she has the ability to do it.

Lady Clemmie 
Fri 26th Aug 2022
13:25, Newmarket

Lady Clemmie is having her second run, again at Newmarket, as she has to run in these hot maidens. She is a daughter of Churchill and his progeny do not qualify for the restricted races. She's ready for the run and while likely to be a little short on class today, we think she will be worth following once handicapped.

Fresh Hope    WINNER! winner
Thu 25th Aug 2022
19:15, Newcastle

Fresh Hope is talented but can be frustrating to support as she gets herself into trouble. Seven furlongs at Newcastle is perfect for her and so is her draw. She has the ability to win with her eyes closed!

Wynter Wildes    WINNER! winner
Thu 25th Aug 2022
17:45, Newcastle

Wynter Wildes has been a remarkable horse this year running consistently and often. She ran a career-best last time out on ground that was too quick and just three days after her previous run. This has been been the aim ever since and she should love the stiff track.

Point Louise 
Thu 25th Aug 2022
14:53, Ffos Las

We are trying a new trip with Point Louise, who has been staying on at the end of each of her three runs at ten furlongs. Top-weight on a galloping track will require her to get the distance well, but we're taking off 5lb for a capable claimer. Each-way hopes if she does stay this far. 

Contessa Verde 
Thu 25th Aug 2022
14:53, Ffos Las

Contessa Verde takes a step up in trip today. If she can settle into a nice rhythm it should suit her galloping stride. We think she can be competitive on this handicap debut.

Strength 'n Honour 
Thu 25th Aug 2022
14:18, Ffos Las

Strength 'n Honour ran three decent races before being gelded and given some time off. He likes a bit of cut in the ground and the step up to six furlongs should work well. He can go close.

On The Nose 
Thu 25th Aug 2022
14:10, Chelmsford

On The Nose ran well making the running for a long way at Lingfield last Saturday, only fading in the last furlong. If she can make a good start and get into a rhythm she might take plenty of pegging back. Each-way chances.

Anificas Beauty 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
20:30, Kempton Park

Anificas Beauty is another stable debutante tonight, the daughter of Exceed and Excel having joined from Gay Kelleway. She won at Chelmsford last year but has struggled in handicaps in 2022 and it will be interesting to see how she shapes off her reduced mark tonight.

The Mouse King    WINNER! winner
Wed 24th Aug 2022
18:00, Kempton Park

The Mouse King won very nicely at Southwell ten days ago and he was put up 13lb for that in yesterday's new ratings. That looked harsh and it forced us to run here with a 6lb penalty. Sam Feilding claims 7lb again and he will need to win today to justify that big rise.

Sir Sedric 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
15:40, Lingfield

Sir Sedric put in an improved performance third time out for us when a close fourth over seven furlongs here. He doesn't have a brilliant draw but shows enough speed to suggest he will cope with the drop to six furlongs. Each-way claims.

Big Bard 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
15:40, Lingfield

Big Bard has not threatened to match last autumn's good form in three starts this year, but he is gradjually coming down towards his winning mark after a big rise. We are hopeful of an improved display today.

Cool Spirit 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
15:40, Lingfield

Cool Spirit ran a lot better at Wolverhampton and appears to be coming back to form. He likes the track so we have to be hopeful and while the draw could have been better, he is on a nicely reduced mark. Good each-way chances.

Dark Shot 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
14:30, Catterick

Non runner - race abandoned

Stintino Sunset 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
13:40, Lingfield

Stintino Sunset is having her second run and this looks a nice race for her. She will be more competitive once handicapped.

Fen Tiger    WINNER! winner
Wed 24th Aug 2022
13:10, Lingfield

Fen Tiger has ben running well since he has been stepped up in trip. Ideally he is best on soft turf but that isn't happening anytime soon. He is in great form and this looks a weak race. Ross Birkett riding is a big advantage so he should be thereabouts if he gets this longer trip and handles the track.

Final Choice 
Wed 24th Aug 2022
13:10, Lingfield

Final Choice has been a high-class jumper in the past but now a nine-year-old, his winning days seem a long way off. He did win on the all-weather here two years ago, but it's been downhill since and on his first run for us he was beaten miles. Hopefully he show a little more today to suggest there might still be some fun to be had with him in the future.

Robbie Dazzler 
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
19:00, Fontwell Park

Robbie Dazzler ran easily his best race when third at Bangor the other day. He is bred to appreciate today's longer trip and off his selling-plater's mark of 77 has his first realistic chance of a victory. We hope he can take the opportunity.

Between The Waters 
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
19:00, Fontwell Park

It's three years now since Between The Waters recorded his three chase victories in fairly quick succession, all with Page in the saddle. He is in a long losing run but consequently his mark has dropped. Nowadays he's mainly one for the young jockeys to ride, but back in a normal race, Page takes over. He'd have a chance if he settles and lasts out the 3m2f trip.

Lake Washington 
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
17:30, Fontwell Park

Lake Washington missed the past three seasons before joining us. His form was nothing to write home about before and while he improved on stable debut last time, he was still beaten a long way. His young amateur rides him again and we will be hoping for another step forward tonight.

Valamix 
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
16:00, Worcester

Valamix is a well-connected gelding by the top French stayer Valirann, an Aga Khan stallion. Valamix was placed in his final bumper run and now in all three of his hurdles starts. He looks to have improved each time and clearly appreciated the latest step up in trip. He is not overly well handicapped but is improving and can steo forward again here.

Czech Her Out    WINNER! winner
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
15:30, Worcester

Czech Her Out has plenty of recent placed form on her card but the latest run here last month behind in-form top-weight Sheila Nash was very disappointing. Hopefully she can get back to the earlier form in which case she would have each-way chances again.

Pisgah Pike 
Tue 23rd Aug 2022
15:00, Worcester

Pisgah Pike has proved himself capable both over hurdles and fences in the past. He returned this season needing his first run over fences at Newton Abbot but then bounced back to his best with a thrilling win with a strong finish to a strong renewal of the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen. He's had time to recover from that effort and now raised 4lb he can continue to be competitive in similar races. Hopeful of another good performance. 

Tom Tulliver 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
20:45, Southwell

Only once in his career of 36 starts has Tom Tulliver run as far as 7f. That was ages ago and he appeared not to stay. It is hard to suggest he will now and in any case he was quite disappointing last time after an encouraging second at 6f the time before.

Masqool 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
20:45, Southwell

Masqool ran very well over 1m2f at Lingfield on Saturday evening, narrowly beaten by a potentially well-handicapped rival. He is versatile - he won over 7f there earlier in the year - so should have no trouble adjusting to that shorter trip here tonight. The quick follow-up offers an obvious winning chance.

Ebury 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
19:40, Southwell

Ebury has not had much luck lately but I've noticed all of his last 12 runs have been at Grade 1 tracks. He should find a run on his home ground a relief after that sequence and I'm hopeful he will respond in a positive manner as he has come down a fair way in the handicap.

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
19:40, Southwell

Harbour Vision found in-form Helm Rock too good at Wolverhampton last time but beat the rest well enough. He joins Ebury here and there might not be too much between them at the finish.

Last Mission 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
19:40, Southwell

Last Mission did not run too badly at Chelmsford last time and this track suits him - he has shown decent form around here in the past. Each-way chance in an open contest.

College Oak 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
18:50, Stratford upon Avon

College Oak has come back well this season and after a couple of decent efforts he won nicely at Stratford with a resolute performance. Next time at Uttoxeter, up 5lb, he couldn't get his required lead and the distance might have stretched him anyway. Back over the course and distance of that most recent win, he has to hold a big chance in this four-horse affair.

Duke Of Firenze 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
18:40, Southwell

We can draw a line under Duke Of Firenze's last effort. The old boy is in great shape and now we have lowered his sights we are confident of a big run.

Mon 22nd Aug 2022
16:20, Brighton

Spanish Mane seems to have taken well to the track where she has won twice this year. She has been in good form at home and Laura Coughlan will know her better now having been on her last time. Should be thereabouts.

Big Bard 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022
16:20, Brighton

Big Bard has been quiet so far this season, but he did win a couple easily last year including here. The handicapper was pretty severe after the latter win but he is coming closer to that last winning mark and might offer a little more today.

Louis Treize 
Mon 22nd Aug 2022

Aggagio 
Sun 21st Aug 2022
18:42, Sandown

Aggagio had a great time in the spring, winning two hurdle races in March and then scoring twice on soft ground at Goodwood. In the second of the flat wins he beat useful yardstick Ravens Ark and the 4lb rise for that does not look excessive. Hopefully the ground will not be too lively for him.

Barn Owl 
Sun 21st Aug 2022
18:42, Sandown

Barn Owl came from the Charlton stable where he had a good year in 2021. In three runs for us he didn't beat a rival but he has had a wind operation since and hopefully that will have made things easier for him. We'll begin to find out about that today.

Helm Rock 
Sun 21st Aug 2022
18:12, Sandown

Helm Rock is also looking for a hat-trick although this is deeper. He won't want the ground to be too quick.

Don't Tell Claire    WINNER! winner
Sun 21st Aug 2022

Don't Tell Claire has had no luck this season and once again has a tricky draw. She is becoming well handicapped.

Warning Sign 
Sun 21st Aug 2022
18:12, Sandown

We picked up Warning Sign at the sales in France at the beginning of July. He doesn't have many miles on the clock but is a winner and twice placed from only five career starts. It will be interesting to see how he fits with a mark of 85.

Andaleep    WINNER! winner
Sun 21st Aug 2022
17:12, Sandown

Andaleep has been in great form and seeks a hat-trick though this is tougher. He has good course and distance form and should run his race once more.

Asense 
Sun 21st Aug 2022
16:50, Brighton

Asense ran well here when second over 1m2f earlier in the month. She should get the extra distance and must have a chance although her rider will be at a big experience disadvantage against these seasoned amateurs.

Iconique 
Sun 21st Aug 2022

Iconique looked the likely winner a furlong out last time here over 1m6f but didn't stay. She loves Yarmouth and the fast ground and looks a big price in a very open handicap.

14:45, Brighton

Marks Bear put together some good runs over the winter but since returning to action he has not matched that level. He has been dropped a few pounds, enabling him to run in this 0-80 off top-weight and he certainly has the class if he can get back to his earlier form.

Mr Chua 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
19:50, Lingfield

Mr Chua returned with a good run at the start of the turf season but had been below that level since and we gave him a wind-op last month. On his form of last year he would be very competitive off this mark and if the surgery works he could go very close.

Henley Park 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
19:20, Lingfield

We run two in this and both Henley Park and On The Nose have a chance on their best form. Henley Park won here in January but did less well on a return and has been off the track for six months. He is certainly capable of going close if he isn't a little ring rusty.

On The Nose 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
19:20, Lingfield

On The Nose won narrowly over a mile-and-a-quarter at Brighton two runs back but did less well dropped to a mile there last time. His all-weather form to date has been very ordinary and it would take a big improvement for him to figure, but he has the natural ability to be involved.

Masqool 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
19:20, Lingfield

Masqool is a tough character who made a nice return recently after a break. He won twice earlier in the year and while there are a few dark horses in this he should be thereabouts.

Marnie James 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
17:35, Sandown

Marnie James made a significant improvement on recent form when a close fourth at Doncaster two weeks ago. It's a long time since he won a race but that was encouraging and now, off his lowest mark for five years, he could be dangerous. Place chances at least.

Amberdaay 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
17:26, Chelmsford

Amberdaay has been given a short break to strengthen up. The drop back to five furlongs last time proved too sharp but six furlongs on alll-weather should suit as will Fred Larsen's 5lb claim. Hopeful he has an each-way chance.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Sat 20th Aug 2022
15:50, Sandown

Croeso Cymraeg is a much-loved stable stalwart who keeps giving it his best shot. This is a very competitive handicap but he has a good draw on a track where he is a course and distance winner. The likely strong pace will be to his liking.

Kittens Dream 
Fri 19th Aug 2022
19:50, Wolverhampton

In good form at home and was a fair 4th last time out here. Same mark here and Jon rides to take off 5lbs again. Fairly open race, but we come here in good order and the horses seem to be going well overall. Should not be far away.

Bowland Park 
Fri 19th Aug 2022
18:29, Newcastle

Yet to prove he stays this far but we feel it's worth another go - if he can will open up more options.

Polly Pott    WINNER! winner
Fri 19th Aug 2022
18:00, Salisbury

Done great this season - winning her last two. Up just 2lbs for the last of those and been very versatile in term of trip - winning over 5 1/2f and last time over 1m 1/2f. Over a mile here is fine and should have a decent chance of landing the three-timer.

Atrium    WINNER! winner
Fri 19th Aug 2022
14:50, Newbury

Atrium ran very well off a slow pace last time in a race that looks hot. He should love Newbury and the softer ground will definitely suit. He is bouncing

Atomise 
Fri 19th Aug 2022
14:15, Newbury

Bumped into a very well handicapped horse last time but beat the rest fair and square. The ground should be perfect and she seems in good order at home. The track will suit well.

Bingley Crocker 
Fri 19th Aug 2022
13:40, Newbury

Open race here and would have an e/w chance. 3rd to a nice horse in Ferrari Queen last time at Kempton was franked since - ran 2nd in a Listed race here. Also be better for being in a handicap now too and Charles, who rode last time, keeps the ride. Each-way.

Entrancement 
Fri 19th Aug 2022
13:10, Newbury

Third run here today - two average runs so far, but has some a bit of promise and will improve with racing. Will get a handicap mark after today and be seen in better affect thereafter.

Howdilyoudo 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
19:55, Fontwell Park

Howdilyoudo is out of a half-sister to the useful winner Whodoyouthink and to Whatuthink (who was third in the Irish National); from the family of Glens Music.  This Presenting filly was placed in bumpers and novice hurdles, but came good after a winter break with victory last summer at Worcester and at Uttoxeter, and she was very consistent all summer and into the autumn.  She returned in good form to be 3rd at Ffos Las in early April, and she then won on her chasing debut at Stratford.  She disappointed on her next start over fences, but back over hurdles, off a mark only 2lbs higher than last successful over hurdles, she looked to have every chance when clattering through the last and ultimately was pulled up immediately. Thankfully none the worse, she comes here with a chance once more.

Mrs Meader    WINNER! winner
Thu 18th Aug 2022
19:45, Leicester

Mrs Meader has been waiting for some rain since her hood win at Newbury, Leicester seems to have got the rain which is ideal. She is in great form at home and runs well fresh. Sean Kirrane knows her well and takes off a handy 3lb. She should be thereabouts again.

Hayedo 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
18:25, Fontwell Park

Back over hurdles here after running on the flat at Epsom last time out. Won well at Hereford back in January, but hasn't been able to really building on that since. Has been schooling more at home since and will be sharper for that recent flat outing. Hopeful of better today as the ground is fine and in an open race we'd head here with place claims as he's got a bit to prove to get back on track.

Some Day Soon 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
18:25, Fontwell Park

Some Day Soon was running well off a mark of 139 over hurdles at the start of last summer, but wasn't able to win.  So we sent him novice chasing, and he bolted up on his chasing debut, but then showed he lacked the scope to progress over fences.  Back over hurdles he was a fine 3rd at Aintree in the autumn, but his mark has looked a bit high.  He wasn't beaten far on his seasonal return, but hasn't looked to stay 3m the last two times. However, his mark has slipped as a result, and he's looking dangerously handicapped now dropping in class, with a useful 7lbs claimer on board. This trip might be a touch short, and he needs to bounce back to form....but that could happen here.

Fortunate Fred 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
17:55, Fontwell Park

Fortunate Fred is out of a sister to French winners, this gelding is a half-brother to the 130 rated Darling Maltaix.  Having been placed in a couple of bumpers, he looked to be in with every chance when coming down at the last on his hurdling debut.  He subsequently finished 2nd on his next start, but came back with an injury to his knee and was off for a while before coming back in December and finishing 5th but not enjoying the softer ground. He has been placed on both starts this summer and was very unfortunate to be beaten a nose last time out. This looks a good opportunity for him, granted a touch of fortune this time.

Hey Frankie 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
17:25, Fontwell Park

Got a bit of seconditis as the moment - landing the silver medal in her last three. Conditional jockeys' race here but we've a good pilot in Luca Morgan riding. Is well after recent run at Worcester after 3 weeks off and will love the ground and trip. We come here with a decent each-way chance.

Adaay In Asia    WINNER! winner
Thu 18th Aug 2022
17:20, York

Delighted with her this season - winning her last three and has improved 13lbs as a result. Up another 6lbs for her Ascot win at the Shergar Cup. But is up to 7f here today (from 6f) so hoping the extra furlong will bring out more improvement. More on her plate, but continues to surprise us so you never know. Fit and well, so e/w call here.

Teeceethree 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
16:20, Stratford upon Avon

Out of a four time winning mare that we trained, this filly has done plenty of work and is developing into a nice sort. She's not worked on grass, so will improve for this outing, but she goes well enough at home to suggest she can be winning races of this nature. 

Amidnightstar 
Thu 18th Aug 2022
16:20, Stratford upon Avon

Strong mare who has been going well. Difficult race to assess but she could run well having at least has some racecourse experience.

Bungle Bay 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
20:20, Kempton Park

Form of his last race is working out well and if he gets a clear passage should be thereabouts on a track that suits.

Envol De La Cour 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
20:10, Worcester

Battled on really well the last day at Southwell to win by just over a length. Up 4lbs for that win and Luca rides again to claim 3lbs, which helps. Has had a few months off to freshen up again too and well for that. Another bold bid on the cards.

Morning Symphony 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
19:10, Worcester

By Shamardal out of a half-sister to St Leger winner, Encke. Morning Symphony won on her handicap debut on the flat when stepped up to 1m4. She has been bought to go jumping this summer, and she jumps well so should be winning races in this sphere. Unfortunately, she was at the wrong end of a domino effect and unseated at the first on her hurdling debut, but she has schooled well since, so we're hoping for a clear round this time!  Providing all goes well, I can see her running into a place here.

Cape Robin 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
16:29, Worcester

Pulled up the last twice so we gave him a small break. Back from 2 1/2 months off here and been doing well at home. Bringing him back here as a CD winner too and only 3lbs higher than last win here. Charlie knows him well too and loves the good ground. In-form Tizzard runner the likely winner, but in a tight race after this one we'd have a small e/w chance.

Rose Fandango 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
16:00, Wolverhampton

Been in top from this summer - winning once and running two silver medals in recent runs. Course winner over 7f but even though she's yet to win over this far we feel she stays it well. Drawn well in 4 helps and top jockey in David Probert booked to ride. Decent e/w chance.

Virgo    WINNER! winner
Wed 17th Aug 2022
16:00, Wolverhampton

Ran ok off a long break at Newcastle recently, but has been showing more speed at home and I think this drop back in trip will suit him. He is well drawn too so we can be positive. I’m hopeful of a decent run.

Visibility 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
15:25, Wolverhampton

Been running in better races than this so the ease in grade will help. We are also down 2lbs from last time when down the field at Doncaster. Likes this track (CD winner) and Jon's claim always handy. We'd like to think we've got a fair e/w chance here outside the in-form Morris horse - Hot Team.

Grand Alliance 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
15:00, York

Is very talented but extremely quirky. He absolutely hated Goodwood last time out but that wouldn’t be unusual. He will enjoy this track much more and all of his best runs have come in small fields. I would have loved a bit more rain but it was very quick at Ascot when he should have won a Group 2.

Rebel Redemption    WINNER! winner
Wed 17th Aug 2022
14:50, Wolverhampton

6 time winner and a CD winner here at the track too. Faded over this trip here last time (just 4 days ago) but a slightly better draw here in 1 as likes to race up with the pace. Sir Gregory the one to beat but hopeful of a better run than last time, with an e/w chance. Jonathan Fisher rides to claim 5lbs.

Samara Star 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
14:15, Wolverhampton

Course winner but a fair bit to prove at the moment - stopped quickly the last day here over this trip but nothing has come to light so we decided to give her 4 months off to recover. Seems well at home and nice to get going again, is lightly-raced with just 7 runs so has time on her side, but best watched until we know a bit more where we are on the course.

Duke Of Firenze 
Wed 17th Aug 2022
13:05, Wolverhampton

13 year-old now but still loving his racing and will be having his 127th run here today. This is his grade these days and ran another nice race when third at Leicester last time out, when the race didn't quite work out and is off the same mark here. The switch to the AW is fine too - has run well here in the past. Draw 7 is okay too as like to come off the pace so if getting the openings we'd have a nice e/w chance again here.

Engrave    WINNER! winner
Tue 16th Aug 2022
20:05, Chelmsford

Engrave loves it at Chelmsford and ran surprisingly well last week when we thought she wasn’t fit. She has now dropped to a very good mark by running at other tracks through the Summer. She should have a good ew chance with Dylan Hogan back on board.

Semser    WINNER! winner
Tue 16th Aug 2022
20:05, Chelmsford

Did well at the start of the year but has rather lost his way a bit in last few runs - ran too free two starts ago. First run here at Chelmsford and dropped a few pounds, plus Rhys takes off another 3lbs. Is better than last showings but needs to bounce back so probably best-watched until we see a return to form on the track.

Lasting Legacy    WINNER! winner
Tue 16th Aug 2022
19:45, Wolverhampton

Has been very consistent but not won as many as I thought she would. Last time she looked like she would have no problem getting further so we have decided to give 12 furlongs a crack. She likes a small field and Wolves will suit well.

Eminent Angel 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
19:10, Wolverhampton

Needs the extra distance to bring out some improvement, pedigree doesn't scream this far but she hasn't shown enough pace to be competitive at shorter.

Lil Guff 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
18:55, Chelmsford

Has been a real staff and run well at some of the big meetings, should be very competitive dropped down to this easier level

Proud Fairy 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
18:35, Wolverhampton

The most experienced in the field so that's a plus, but is yet to win. Close second at Lingfield last time out over a mile - stayed on well that day so the extra 1/2 a furlong will help. Should run his race again and Aidan's claim will help too, but hard to obviously know much about the other lesser exposed runners in the race. That said, we'd be hopeful of a top three finish - anything else a plus - and hopefully she can break her duck.

Escape Free 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
18:35, Wolverhampton

Nice filly but is having her first run today and like a lot of mine will improve for the experience. But still hopeful of a nice showing and should be one to note one getting some experience under her belt.

Tom Tulliver 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
18:00, Wolverhampton

Returned to form last time here at Wolves over this 6f trip, with a 2 length second. Jonathan takes off 5lbs this time and seems to have come out of that last race well to take his chance again quickly. Only niggle is the wide draw in 12 so might need some luck from there. Each-way chance.

Shahbaz 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
17:10, Chelmsford

Has run very well in decent races on both starts, at was probably racing on the worst part of the track at Newcastle. I think he will be better suited to going around a bend and seems in great order so he should go well

Landlordtothestars 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
17:10, Chelmsford

Huge two year old who has a likeable way of going about things. Difficult to assess him so today we shall learn plenty.
Big field of exciting prospects so this race is probably not a great betting proposition.

Fascinating Lips    WINNER! winner
Tue 16th Aug 2022
16:30, Kempton Park

Looks our best chance of getting something on the day. Has won three of his 13 starts, including last time out at Lingfield. Did it nicely that day by just over 2 lengths and up just 5lbs for that. Up to 1m4f (from 1m2f) but ran on very well last time to think the extra 2 furlongs is well within range.

Lenclume 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
16:30, Kempton Park

Course and distance winner the drop in class should give her a chance

Dream Composer 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
16:00, Kempton Park

In good form this season. Bad draw last time so could bounce back today with in form claimer on board. Course and distance winner too which helps.

Reel Power 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
14:30, Kempton Park

Experimenting with his trip a bit at the moment but didn't stay last time over 1m4f. Back to a mile will, therefore, suit and hopeful of better, but still wet behind the ears and only second career run. Will get a handicap mark after today. 

Elterwater 
Tue 16th Aug 2022
14:00, Kempton Park

Will enjoy the extra furlong here. She's a well bred filly who will make into a lovely three year old but we'd hope is up to winning at two.

Jersey Wonder 
Mon 15th Aug 2022
18:40, Bangor

Jersey Wonder ran a little disappointing last time out when stepping up in class, there was no obvious reason but he is a horse that knows more about racing than most. Jersey Wonder has beaten the favourite today, who is better known as a chaser, so he has the ability if things go his way. He's a character at home, he had a successful flat career before arriving with me and when we see people from Jamie Osborne’s string riding out they remember him fondly but as a bit of a boy. Open race, with the two recent winners in the field respected, but we head here with a fair e/w chance.
Magnificent Millie 
Mon 15th Aug 2022
17:50, Windsor

Going the right way from only three career runs, but will get a handicap mark after today and will be seen in a better light thereafter.

Executive Pool 
Mon 15th Aug 2022
13:00, Lingfield

Nice winner at Brighton in June and wasn't disgraced next time at Windsor (2nd). We gave the horse a break since to freshen him up but is ready to run again here. Same mark as last time and Rhys rides to take off 3lbs. Only had one previous run on the AW too so we expect more to come on this surface. Should have every chance.

Big Wing 
Mon 15th Aug 2022
13:00, Lingfield

Came to us from the Richard Hannon yard last month. Only had the one run for us when a fair 4th of 8 here 3 weeks ago. 3lbs lower this time helps and dropped into a 0-60 will help too. Still a 13 race maiden, but as we say, has only raced once for us. Ethan's claim (7lbs) a help and is well at home. Small e/w chance but the Hughes and Moore runners might be fighting this one out.

Harmonious    WINNER! winner
Sun 14th Aug 2022
17:33, Southwell

Since returning to action this year Harmonious has been well beaten in all four starts. His mark has come down a long way as a result and back to 1m4f he could suddenly bounce back. That said, the odds suggest otherwise!

Country Charm 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
17:03, Southwell

Apart from a close third at Wolverhampton early last month, Country Charm has been out of form for a long time. He was behind a few of these here last time and will need a rapid transformation to change that.

Ellen Clacy 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
16:55, Chelmsford

Ellen Clacy has been very frustrating as she has always shown a bit of ability at home. We're very much hoping that the switch to all-weather enables her to show herself in a better light. Place chances.

Banana 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
16:28, Southwell

Banana ran very poorly at Wolverhampton last night. It is hard to fancy her at present and if she turns out again we would not be getting involved.

You Didn't Did You 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
16:20, Chelmsford

You Didn't Did You has been given a very low handicap mark and she actually runs 10lb "wrong" in this race. It will be interesting to see how she goes in her first handicap. With Fred Larson taking off 5lb we would just like to see an improved run.

Dark Shot 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
15:53, Southwell

When Dark Shot is in form he usually puts a number of good runs together. Beaten only narrowly when third in the Stewards' Cup consolation race last month at Goodwood we can be hopeful that he can sustain it with another good run on his home track. Good each-way chances.

The Mouse King    WINNER! winner
Sun 14th Aug 2022
15:18, Southwell

The Mouse King has been riunning well on the all-weather and looks like he can win off this handoicap mark. Sam Feilden is on board today and his 7lb claim will be a big help. Good each-way chance.

Adaay In Asia 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
15:00, Pontefract

Non-runner

Inchbae 
Sun 14th Aug 2022
14:08, Southwell

Inchbae has been trained appallingly to date. Far too green on debut and then raced over too long a distance since then. This is much more up her street and I'm convinced she is better than a 57 horse.

Helm Rock    WINNER! winner
Sat 13th Aug 2022
20:50, Wolverhampton

Helm Rock won well last time under Nicola and while ideally he wants soft ground, we think he should be fine on this surface. He is up 7lb tonight but remains in great form after Carlisle and it's his last chance to run in a 0-75 for a while - we hope!

Harbour Vision    WINNER! winner
Sat 13th Aug 2022
20:50, Wolverhampton

A frequent winner in the past, Harbour Vision has become very disappointing and is on a losing run of 27. Until he shows signs of a revival we will not be going to the races expecting too much from him.

Sunset Salute 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
20:50, Wolverhampton

Sunset Salute has been disappointing but he still to high in the handicap. We are trying hoim on all-weather as he wants cut in the ground. He needs to find his level before being worth following.

Dinsdale 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
20:10, Market Rasen

Dinsdale has been running below what has been needed to win a hurdles handicap but his mark has been dropping and this is a lower level than he has been contesting latest. If it all came together tonight it wouldn't be the biggest surprise in the world. 

Kitten's Dream 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
19:50, Wolverhampton

Kitten's Dream, a Southwell winner in the spring, was disappointing in his last run and has had three months off since. He might just need this to get back on track.

Rebel Redemption 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
19:20, Wolverhampton

Rebel Redemption is another old warrior and in his case a good draw and the reversion to the mark off which his last all-way-win here in March was achieved could signal a big improvement on his last two runs at Southwell. If he gets away alertly he might take some pegging back.

Tom Tulliver 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
18:50, Wolverhampton

The blinkers seemed to cheer up Tom Tulliver here yesterday. It's only a shortish drive for the quick repeat and if he is the same form he could easily get in the money again.

Banana 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
17:46, Wolverhampton

Banana continues to slip down the handicap - couldn't resist that! - but hopefully the slide might soon be arrested. Looking for a better run getting so much weight from the rest of her field.

Ar Mest 
Sat 13th Aug 2022
17:06, Market Rasen

Ar Mest spent his first season for us running over fences. Now, after an early-summer break he returns but back over hurdles where his form for his previous stable was better overall. Might be ready to prove that opinion.

Giogiobbo    WINNER! winner
Sat 13th Aug 2022
16:23, Doncaster

Giogiobbo was a smooth winner last time at Yarmouth under today's very under-used rider. Up only 3lb for that, there is no reason why this prolific veteran should not make it career win number 16 as he continues to defy anno domini.

Catesby 
Fri 12th Aug 2022
16:18, Wolverhampton

In good order after a nice second at Southwell last month - with Ustath beating us that day. We take on that horse again but on 9lbs better terms so hopeful we can turn the tables. Switching to Wolverhampton here is fine as a CD winner and a nice draw in 5. Apprentice race too but Jonathan knows him well. Should be going close.

Tom Tulliver 
Fri 12th Aug 2022
16:18, Wolverhampton

Second runner in the race for us - has rather lost his way though and is 16 races without a win. Has come down the ratings though and looking dangerous off 46 (was rated 68 last June), but does need to find some old sparkle. Good draw in 2 may help him do that.

Promotion 
Fri 12th Aug 2022
15:48, Wolverhampton

Has been knocking at the door and is the type of horse who will win everything falls right. Blinkers replace cheekpieces to try and get a tiny bit extra from him.

Oj Lifestyle    WINNER! winner
Fri 12th Aug 2022
14:00, Newbury

Well bred colt but work in progress horse that was down the field on debut at Ascot. Similar race here and will gain more experience so hopeful of better but will be seen to better effect with more runs and a handicap rating.

Moondial 
Fri 12th Aug 2022
13:35, Wolverhampton

Was third last time and may have managed second we’re it not for interference. The extra furlong should be a positive today.

Novus 
Fri 12th Aug 2022
13:25, Newbury

Purple Ribbon 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
19:40, Lingfield

Is a talented filly but has been extremely fragile. An injury in the spring meant her seasonal debut has been delayed but she has been ready to run for a while now so comes into this race fit enough. Draw hasn’t been kind so we will have to hope there is some pace on up front.

Light Up Our Stars 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
19:10, Lingfield

Only third run for us since coming from the Tony Carroll yard. Hasd done well though - winning on debut for us at Epsom and a fine third last time out at Sandown. Has won 6 times on the AW (has run well at Lingfield too) so that helps too and had 3 weeks to get over that last run. Good draw in 2 and we'd like to think we'd have e/w claims in another competitive contest.

Mykonos St John 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
17:10, Lingfield

Up and down profile at the moment but is a CD winner here so that's a plus. Does need to bounce back from a poor run at Donny in another Racing League race last week but does have better form on the AW surfaces (4-from-13). Good draw in 6 so small e/w chance if getting the breaks in a very open race.

Blazer Two 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
16:40, Ffos Las

Broke his duck when winning at Leicester last month. Up 4lbs for that here but has taken that last race well and fresh after a month off. First run at the track but no reason why it won't suit. Should have every chance.

Atlantic Heart 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
15:40, Salisbury

The extra furlong looks like it should suit after a couple of placed efforts over 7f. Takes on the older horses for the first time.

Ornate 
Thu 11th Aug 2022
14:45, Beverley

Back from a wind op and 3 months off last time at Goodwood and ran well to be only beaten just under 5 lengths. Has improved for that at home and 8lbs lower this time so racing off a career-low mark of 71 - in his prime was rated 110. CD winner here too so the track is fine and well at home. Negative is the draw (14), but can't be ruled out off dropping mark - each-way chance with John Egan riding.

Tequilamockingbird    WINNER! winner
Wed 10th Aug 2022
20:00, Kempton Park

Won nicely on handicap debut before running a very strange race at Newbury where she was the first off the bridle before staying on nicely all the way to the line. I just wonder if she might be better on the all weather hence the return to poly track. She seems in good order at home

Mr Quigley 
Wed 10th Aug 2022
17:10, Beverley

Fair bit to prove based on opening three runs. Will be more at home now in a handicap for the first time though and having taken a keen hold in his races we feel the drop back to 5f here will help. Still work in progress, but is well and hopeful of better.

Has been learning with racing and should find the switch to nursery company makes life easier.

Likeable filly who has taken to things well. First handicap run and warmish race but could run into a place with a fleaweight.

A quick return to action under a penalty, hopefully didn’t have too hard a race when winning at Windsor on Sunday as looks a decent opportunity.

Helm Princess

Never got involved on her third start stuck out the back at Chelmsford after showing promise on her first two starts. Extra furlong should help in what doesn’t look the strongest of events.

Engrave    WINNER! winner
Tue 9th Aug 2022
20:15, Chelmsford

Engrave is running back at her favourite track where she has done all her winning and she is back to her winning mark but she has had a break and usually needs the run plus there are some unexposed three year olds here. Dylan her usual jockey has chosen to ride the Michael Bell horse so we think she will improve for the run.

Louis Treize

Can win a race of this type if he gets out of bed the right side. If things drop perfectly he can make the frame - anything else a plus.

Last Mission

Big longstriding lad who generally runs his race. Back from break and probably has small ew chance.

Villeurbanne 
Tue 9th Aug 2022

16 race maiden but ran much better last time here when a 1 length third. Same trip and mark this time and Paddy Bradley claims 3lbs again. Has come out of that lastg race well (10 days ago). Just needs to save a bit mroe for the finish, but plugged on well despite losing second late on. So a repeat of that would give us a solid e/w chance.

Point Louise    WINNER! winner
Tue 9th Aug 2022

Back on the AW here after a poor run at Salisbury last time. But that was in an amateur riders' race so can be ignored. 2lbs lower and a 5lb claimer on today to help and will be fine over the longer trip. Looks fairly well-treated at the moment so can't ignore, but does need to leave that last run behind her.

Sir Sedric 
Tue 9th Aug 2022
15:00, Lingfield

Ran a solid race here last time over this trip and is dropped 2lbs for that. Well drawn in stall 1 too and does run well here at Lingfield. Well at home and would have an each-way chance here today.

Aira Force 
Tue 9th Aug 2022
14:00, Lingfield

Is quite a burly sort but showed good pace at Nottingham first time out before tiring in the second part of the race. Missed a little bit since with dirty scope so still fitness to come but this is a decent prize, particularly with a couple of valuable bonuses attached so we will give it a shot.  If nothing else she’ll come on more for a race as a gallop at home

Neminos 
Tue 9th Aug 2022

Still to win a race from 12 runs and bit to answer after running down the field at Goodwood last time. Had a few months off since that last run and back on the AW is dropped into a Classified Stakes race. Aidan helps with taking off 5lbs but on these terms we've a fair bit to find. Hoping for better with the cheekpices on, but hard to fancy until we see more.

Travesuras

Won cosily at Windsor last time out and with conditions identical to last time, it seemed sensible to bring him back to the same track. The opposition looks very similar and he goes there with a decent chance.

Mudlahhim 
Mon 8th Aug 2022

Bit out of sorts at the moment in recent runs, so would prefer to see him show more on the track. We've given him a nice break though (2 1/2 months) and is down another 4lbs here. Starting to look well-handicapped, but overall though probably best watched until we see a return to form.

Rose Fandango    WINNER! winner
Mon 8th Aug 2022
15:45, Wolverhampton

In good form at the moment - won here two runs back and was a close second at Haydock in a better race last time. Remains in a Class 5 but the return to the AW will help and Jonathan, who rode her in that last win is back in the saddle. Probably have the Hollie Doyle-ridden Prenup as the one to fear, but hoping our proven CD winning form can be the difference.

Sous Les Etoiles 
Mon 8th Aug 2022
15:30, Kempton Park

Ran well at Salisbury last time out but the ground was like a road that day and the jockey felt she didn’t let herself down on it. We have always felt this step up in trip would suit and she should enjoy the all weather surface at Kempton

Cool Spirit 
Mon 8th Aug 2022

Not been firing in recent races and dropped into a Claimer here today. Bit to find on these terms at the weights, but Rhys' 3lb claim a help on that front. On a plus, we've a good draw in 3 too and is well at home, plus the drop back in grade will help. But taking on two 70+ rated horses might be a tall order and not getting much weight from them, but we certainly fee he can run better than recent runs.

Don't Tell Claire 
Sun 7th Aug 2022

We passed up the outside chance of some placed black type yesterday here for Don't Tell Claire for this run in a Sunday series handicap. The more the ground dries the better it will be for her and although she has a big weight and a wide draw, this is a drop in class compared with the Ascot races she has been contesting, and it's a decent prize too!

Duke Of Firenze 
Sun 7th Aug 2022
16:52, Leicester

We've been giving Duke Of Firenze some pretty tall assignments in recent outings, encouraged by our valiant old boy's excellent home work. He will think he is running loose today off this mark and I'm very hopeful he can take full advantage and add to his 12 career victories.

Seven Brothers 
Sun 7th Aug 2022
16:45, Haydock

Seven Btrothers recently joined us from the Kevin Ryan stable. While his last two runs have been modest he did win over 7f at Doncaster in March and has won four of his 14 career starts. His mark of 84 tells us he is a talented performer, so I'm looking forward to see what he can find. He certainly looks over-priced here at 33/1!

Magnificent Millie 
Sun 7th Aug 2022
14:40, Windsor

Magnificent Millie missed the break on debut here two weeks ago and was never able to get on terms from that point. She will know more about it and as a daughter of Tasleet- sire of this year's Coventry Stakes winner - she is bred to be quick. Hopefully she will show more signs of that today.

Andaleep    WINNER! winner
Sun 7th Aug 2022
14:10, Windsor

Andaleep has been very consistent since joining us either winning or being placed in every start. He faces only four opponents and while he has never won over this far he did have placed form over 1m3f in the past. Amateur races always come with a slight warning and the Sir Mark Prescott horse looks a potential worry, but we're sure he can be involved again today.

Treble Joy    WINNER! winner
Sat 6th Aug 2022
19:35, Lingfield

Treble Joy outran his 40/1 odds at Kempton last month on stable debut when a good second over today's trip. He is clearly our number one in this and hopefully he can get off the mark here if building on that promising start.

Reel Power 
Sat 6th Aug 2022
19:35, Lingfield

We run two in this and Reel Power is the one with more to prove as he was well behind on his debut over a mile at Windsor in late June. Up to 1m4f now, the son of Highland Reel should improve for the step up in trip but probably still has plenty to learn about the game.

Young Endless 
Sat 6th Aug 2022
19:35, Lingfield

Young Endless has run to a very low level so far but definitely improved last time. He is very laid backl and therefore a notably slow learner so hopefully he can take another big step forward today.

Dynakite 
Sat 6th Aug 2022
18:35, Lingfield

I'm pleased to say that the horses are starting to run a lot better. This is Dynakite's first run for me and he has not been helped by the draw. That said he is a hold up horse and we will know a lot more about him after this.

Star Zinc 
Sat 6th Aug 2022
17:15, Haydock

Star Zinc didn't run too badly in his first handicap in May but we decided to geld him. He is talented but not straight-forward and needs cut which he should get today. He can go well if settling early.

Adaay In Asia    WINNER! winner
Sat 6th Aug 2022
17:05, Ascot

Adaay In Asia has done very well to win her last two races and put in a super performance to win at Goodwood. Although this is much tougher we still expect her to run well and she should enjoy the straight track.

Via Serendipity 
Sat 6th Aug 2022
15:55, Ascot

Via Serendipity is a funny horse and we've only just found out which tracks he likes and which tracks he doesn't. We made the mistake of running him at York last time but we've had this race in mind for some time as he likes going right-handed and loves the Round track at Ascot. He can go well.
