DEC Odds: 38(Betfair Exc)

Has been a slow maturing sort - he wasn't suited by the track at Bath last time so with Nottingham being a more galloping track this should suit him better. The ground is fine too and probably would be better in a lower grade but the lack of races means he has to take his chance in this higher class race - really though just hoping for a better run.

Gary Moore
Quloob 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
19:15, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

QULOOB has been running consistently well under both codes but possible his recent run at Fontwell was a little soon after winning there late August. Freshened up at home and I can't see why QULOOB should not be as effective on the all weather as the turf. Looks a tight little race, with the Varian and Prescott horses looking the ones to beat, but we head here with a squeak.

Winter Snowdrop 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
17:45, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 15(Betfair Exc)

Seems to be coming into form now but the lack of opportunities on the turf means we have to take our chance on the AW. Looks like we have the tougher division of the two races and a wide draw in 15 is not ideal either - but she is on good form so takes her chance.

Luxford 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
17:45, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 48(Betfair Exc)

Been a while since LUXFORD has troubled the judge but this is the right race for her if LUXFORD can do her very best at a track she runs well at and has won at in the past. Each-way price.

DEC Odds: 30(Betfair Exc)

Yet to win a race from 16 starts so hard to get too excited until we see more. A small step in the right direction last time out at Wolverhampton - not beaten too far so we'd be delighted if he can build on that.

Simon Dow
Mungos Quest 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
17:15, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 48(Betfair Exc)

Returns here after a minor injury. No suggestion in the pedigree that he wants this far but he certainly trains that way. Done plenty of work but sure to come on for the run and we will know a lot more after today.

Kentucky Kingdom    WINNER! winner

Top run from James' horse.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
17:15, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 50(Betfair Exc)

Nice horse, who finished last season on a disappointing note. After a good break we are hoping a step up in trip will suit, but may just need the run here today.

Daniel & Claire Kubler
Salsa Dip 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
17:15, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 30(Betfair Exc)

Yet to really make an impact on the track, he has shown enough at home to suggest that he is capable of winning a race such as this, just needs to put it together on the track now.

Aiguillette 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
16:45, Chelmsford
DEC Odds: 5.4(Betfair Exc)

AIGUILLETTE has been frustrating as has come close several times but seems to bump into one. Hopefully the headgear will help. Working well at home and with Shane Kelly on board I hope Shane can lift him over that line in front.

Lee Carter

Sat 26th Sep 2020

DEC Odds: 19.5(Betfair Exc)

Scott Dixon
Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Another place finish for Scott's horse.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
16:35, Ripon
DEC Odds: 42(Betfair Exc)

Gained a deserved win at Hamilton back in July and ran well to be second after that. Had a few excuses the last twice as tried 2m and didn't really stay and then got bumped at the start last time at Beverley. Still 6lbs higher than that summer win so more needed, but the trip today (1m4f) will suit and will love the soft ground. Also had a month off to get over those quick runs and seems well for the break. Generally, a consistent sort, but does have a habit of being placed more often than winning. On a plus, we are in a better race so gets in with just 8-9 and gets weight all round, plus with the jockey's 3lb claim that light burden will be a help. Overall might be a tough ask to win, but better expected than last few runs.

Jamie Snowden
Datsalrightgino    WINNER! winner

Looks a nice prospect for the Jamie Snowden yard.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
16:25, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 6.4(Betfair Exc)

By the high-class German-trained middle-distance performer, It’s Gino, who was 3rd in the Arc (the sire of Grade 1 winner hurdler and Grade 2 winning chaser, Lalor) and out of a 3-time winning ‘Group placed’ mare. This full brother to a 9-time winner was ready to run in the spring, but was unable to due to Covid. However, he has been away for a racecourse gallop in the spring, and he looked a smart prospect. I look forward to seeing him on the track now.

Michael Scudamore
Justice Knight 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
15:55, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 9.6(Betfair Exc)

Chase debut didn't go to plan or well last time out at Kelso, he just didn't take to them so we are quickly back over his preferred hurdles here today. Had run okay the time before (4th) at Stratford and with that run coming off a break had come on for it. Ground and trip are fine and was 2nd over this CD a while back so the track is fine too. Blinkers are also on today as raced a bit too keen last time too. Should put that last run behind him and only 5lbs higher than last win and 3lbs of that is offset with the jockey's claim. A return to that previous course form here would see him go very close.

Goshen 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
15:45, Haydock
DEC Odds: 1.41(Betfair Exc)

Last seen in that agonising unseat in the Triumph Hurdle at the Festival, when having the race in the bag. Had a well-deserved break since and back on the flat today. GOSHEN appears to be attractively handicapped. Been off the track a long time and needs to blow a few cobwebs away but I have been very pleased with GOSHEN'S work at home and delighted to get him back on the track. 

Charlie Fellowes
King Carney 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
15:35, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 36(Betfair Exc)

Got back on track last time out at Newbury and this has very much been the plan since. He has a good cruising speed and is well balanced so should have no issues with the track. The trip should also be fine as will the easy ground.

Tulfarris 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
15:35, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 30(Betfair Exc)

Is a bit of a dark horse today. He loves straight tracks, easy ground and is very well-balanced so should have no issues with the undulations. Small question about whether he stays 9f but I think he can. Could run well at a big price.

The Crazed Moon    WINNER! winner

Plugged on well to take third.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
15:20, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

Hasn't really fired for us over fences in the two runs he's had since joining the yard. So, we gave him a break and also a wind op over the summer as got tired quickly last time. Back over hurdles here to get his confidence back, but his better form is over the smaller obstacles anyway and has form at the track. Is also back to a nice mark - only a pound higher than last win - and should be fine on the ground, but any rain would help his cause. Fit and well at home - has been doing plenty of work, while it's nice to get going with him again and in what doesn't look the best of races must have a chance and shouldn't be far away.

Pisgah Pike    WINNER! winner

Great call from Jamie.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
14:45, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 9.6(Betfair Exc)

Pisgah Pike had a wind operation over the summer, and after a positive seasonal debut, he bolted up in a novice at Hexham. That wasn't much of a race, but the manner of his win was impressive. He makes his handicap debut in this competitive Listed event, but he is totally unexposed and off bottom weight he could play a part.

Dark Shot 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
14:40, Haydock
DEC Odds: 9.2(Betfair Exc)

Found a new lease of life recently after losing his way for a while. Won well at Leicester earlier in the week and only 4lbs higher for that here. Goes without saying a much harder race as up in grade but still well-treated on old form and clearly in good heart with himself at the moment. Conditions are fine and would not be surprised to see him involved again. Each-way.

Oliver Sherwood
Vinnie The Hoddie 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
14:10, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 14.5(Betfair Exc)

I was very pleased with his last run, when winning well at Uttoxeter and the form is holding up. It’s quite a competitive race and he’ll have a lot of weight today (raised 8lbs for that last win), but he’s in great order. It’s another step up the ladder and it’s a great prize so subject to any jumping errors he’ll be bang there.

Ed Dunlop
Alternative Fact    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Ed's horse.


Sat 26th Sep 2020
14:05, Haydock
DEC Odds: 5.5(Betfair Exc)

Recently come back from a break and is very fresh and well at home so looking forward to running him at Haydock here today - where he's a proven course and distance winner. The ground will be in his favour, as it's on the softer side of good and he should run a nice race. The plan will be to stick him in behind and ride for luck - hopefully he can come with a late run and be bang there at the finish.

Star Of Screen 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
13:15, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 65(Betfair Exc)

Is a lovely filly, who seems to go well at home. Like all of mine she will improve significantly for the run but she will definitely not disgrace herself.

Howdilyoudo 
Sat 26th Sep 2020
12:35, Market Rasen
DEC Odds: 85(Betfair Exc)

Howdilyoudo ran well to be 3rd in a bumper on her racecourse debut last season, she jumps well, and has a bright future. This looks a competitive race, and she is bound to improve for the experience.

Czech Her Out 
Fri 25th Sep 2020
16:20, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 16(Betfair Exc)

Won well at Stratford back in July but failed to build on that on her handicap debut at Market Rasen the last day. Got tired quite quickly so we've given her a wind operation since. Should be more to come but being first run back after the op then really just be delighted with a nice clear run and get some confidence back into her. Anything else a plus.

Gay Kelleway
Pride Of Uk 
Fri 25th Sep 2020
15:25, Haydock
DEC Odds: 210(Betfair Exc)

Nice colt that is well-bred - shows up well at home and has plenty of pace but he's also a bit hot and buzzy so expected to need the experience on this debut run. But certainly one to note for the future. Luke Morris rides.

Northern Beau    WINNER! winner

Ran well for the Michael Scudamore yard.


Fri 25th Sep 2020
15:10, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 16.5(Betfair Exc)

Needed the run in the end last time out at Cartmel over fences after just over 6 months off and probably not totally suited by the track that day. Back over hurdles here too, but is rated 3lbs lower than over fences. The longer trip is fine too - has won over his distance - this also represents a slight drop in grade to what he's been running in. Acts on any ground, so any rain is fine as well. Looks a decent race and not without a squeak as she's certainly come on for that last race, but it's no secret his better form has been over fences - yet to win over hurdles from 10 runs - so a bit to answer on that score.

Harry Dunlop
Vulcan    WINNER! winner

Very easy win for Harry's horse and another TQ View pick this month.


Fri 25th Sep 2020
14:15, Haydock
DEC Odds: 3.5(Betfair Exc)

Got off the mark last time here on his ninth run, but had been knocking on the door a bit before that. Up 4lbs for that but we offset some of that with Saffie Osborne able to claim 5lbs - last time the jockey could claim 3lbs, so really the horse is only 2lbs worse off this time. Up from 1m to 1m2 1/2f here but kept on well to suggest it's worth another try and that last run also came on soft ground to also back up that - the last time he tried this trip it came off a long break too. But he will need to relax again in order to get the trip. Probably a deeper and more competitive race than the last one too, but the horse is full of confidence after that last run and if able to save a bit for the end of the race and relax then should not be far away.

Robin Dickin
Mr Palmtree 
Fri 25th Sep 2020
13:30, Uttoxeter
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

Really a prep run to go back chasing. Working well at home, but his real target is chasing this season. Therefore, best watched today.

Relativity 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
20:00, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 11.5(Betfair Exc)

Ran better two runs back at Kempton but down the field when upped to 2m last time at Wolves. Giving him another try over this trip though as down in grade and has run his best race at the track - so returning here for that reason too. The horse has a bit to answer still over this trip with the Prescott and Simcock horses looking the obvious ones, but we know the track suits and if running to the level of his last run at the course then would have an e/w chance.

Boma Green 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
19:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 6.8(Betfair Exc)

Only had three career runs and two for us, so will be more to come. Has not been the best away each time but has still run on well to finish third and fourth recently. Is certainly well-handicapped but the negative is an awful draw (13). He's got plenty of ability though, but just feel he'll need luck in-running from that starting berth today.

Maysong 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
19:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 12(Betfair Exc)

Maysong runs in the 7f 0-80 Handicap at Kempton today, a track he's a course and distance winner at. He ran a very creditable race last time out when returning from a long break. We have decided to drop him back to 7f and take him back to the scene of his last win. He looks to be in good form at home and I am confident he will put in a solid performance. Marco Ghiani claims 5 and takes the ride.

Corazon Espinado 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
19:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 44(Betfair Exc)

Dropping down the handicap and rider claims another useful 5lbs. Probably slightly better left handed these days though is a winner here and runner up in London mile back in his career. No surprise to see him involved.

Voice Of Calm 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
17:20, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 14(Betfair Exc)

Only career win from 7 runs has come on the AW. But handled a bit of cut well last time at Sandown - albeit in a worse race than this. Up in grade, but the thinking is that we can race off a much lower racing weight than last time - just 8st 8lbs. We are also the only proven distance winner in the field so that must also count for something. However, more on her plate but the horse is well and hoping the lighter weight can make her competitive - the Hugo Palmer and Michael Bell runners look the ones to beat though.

Caen Na Coille 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
17:20, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 10.5(Betfair Exc)

Tight little race. Coille was in season last time she ran on the turf (June, Windsor) so I am hoping she will show her true colours today. Has run well on the AW since and 10 furlongs should be fine for her today - we will ride her patiently.

Beryl Burton 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
16:55, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 32(Betfair Exc)

Going in the right direction after solid runs at Salisbury and Lingfield - but will gain a handicap mark after today and that will help her going forward. On a plus, we feel the step up to 1m will suit and the horses overall seem to be in good heart at the moment, but - as I say - another learning curve for the horse here.

Beauty Choice 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
16:25, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 22(Betfair Exc)

I have no explanation for his run last time out when down the field at Winsdor. He has always worked well at home though so hopefully can get back on track today off a 2lbs lower rating than last time. Track shouldn't be a problem either - has run here in the past, while James Doyle a big plus in the saddle. Each-way price. 

Arthurs Realm 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
15:10, Pontefract
DEC Odds: 3.35(Betfair Exc)

Arthur’s Realm runs in the 1m Novice Auction at Pontefract today. He ran a lovely maiden last time out in what is looking like a hotly contested affair at Doncaster. He has come out of this race well and looks to have come on for the run. This looks an easier task ahead of him and the one to beat on paper is the Andrew Balding trained Classic Lord who has to defy a penalty here to win again. I am confident of a strong performance and we should be in the picture. Ben Curtis takes the ride.

Amazing Red 
Thu 24th Sep 2020
14:40, Pontefract
DEC Odds: 7.8(Betfair Exc)

Amazing Red runs in the 1m4f 0-105 Handicap at Pontefract today. He has been a consistent horse this year knocking on the door a few times but looks to be handicapped to the hilt slightly. He has come out of his last run well and is looking fresh and well. It is an open affair and I would be hopeful of a strong run. The negative would be the recent rain at Pontefract - this may be a slight disadvantage and he does prefer it on the quicker side.

Lady of Aran    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win from Charlie's horse.


Thu 24th Sep 2020
14:25, Newmarket
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

Has run well for Georgia the last twice so she keeps the ride and claims a handy 5lbs again. Is ultra-consistent and will appreciate the rain that has fallen over the last 24 hours. We think she can run well here today with decent e/w claims.

Starter For Ten 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
20:00, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 6.2(Betfair Exc)

Was incredibly unlucky last time out, having got stopped in his run several times. His work has been good on the AW and he too could go close today.

Soramond 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
19:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 60(Betfair Exc)

Soramond runs at Kempton this evening. It looks a competitive affair and we have added cheekpieces to see if it helps her concentrate.

Pioneering 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
18:30, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 3.85(Betfair Exc)

Won well in a bad seller last week at Lingfield. Has come out of that race well and full of confidence at the moment. Is down in trip today (1m from 1m2f), but shouldn't be an issue and would have a fair chance again today. Rhys, who can claim 7lbs again, keeps the ride.

Perfect Inch 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
18:00, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 1.8(Betfair Exc)

Has been very unlucky not to win a race yet and this looks a good opportunity. She has a top jockey (Ryan Moore) on and is well drawn too in 5 - it's hers to lose!

Anti Cool 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
17:20, Perth

Sea Of Charm    WINNER! winner

Went down a head at the line - but still a nice e/w return!

 


Wed 23rd Sep 2020
16:25, Kempton Park
DEC Odds: 16.5(Betfair Exc)

Happy with her debut run at Wolverhampton, when fourth over 7f. Dropping back to 6f here as seemed to get tired the last day. Probably not a race to go mad in, as a lot of unraced and lightly-raced sorts, but Tom Marquand a plus in the saddle and with the expected progress should not be far away - Each-way chance.

Alex Gracie 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
16:20, Redcar
DEC Odds: 17.5(Betfair Exc)

Horses seem to be running well at the moment - Gracie slightly surprised us last time by winning at Thirsk and breaking her maiden too - but has come out of that race well. 6lbs higher here though and looks a deeper race so another step forward needed, but hoping that last run would have given her a lot more confidence. Ground is fine and so is the trip 6f. Each-way.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
16:05, Goodwood
DEC Odds: 10(Betfair Exc)

In good form and liked Goodwood last time - up 6lbs for that so a bit more needed. Drop back in trip and usual partner injured. Jimmy Quinn takes over, but has ridden him before and if they get a bit of luck in-running they could be in the shake-up in what looks a very open and competitive race.

Tashbeeh 
Wed 23rd Sep 2020
13:00, Redcar
DEC Odds: 18.5(Betfair Exc)

Tashbeeh runs in the 6f Nursery at Redcar over 6f. He is in good form at home and we feel the addition of blinkers will he’ll sharpen him up. It is a open affair and I hope the rain stays away as he does prefer it on the quicker.

The Game Is On 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
17:50, Lingfield Park

Back to form on soft ground at Goodwood last time, this is much different. Well drawn and rider knows him well so no surprise to see him run a great race with his confidence boosted, but this is a career-high and he needs to make further progress. Seems in great shape though.

Tara Iti 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
17:40, Newcastle

Tara ITI is running in a competitive novice and we are hopeful he will come on for his last run.

Nightswimming 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
17:20, Lingfield Park

Best watched on this occasion after a poor run last time - will be better once getting a handicap mark.

Tim Vaughan
Cool Tara 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
17:15, Warwick

Red Secret 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
16:50, Lingfield Park

Red Secret is a consistent horse who may be handicapped to the hilt at the moment of 75. It is a tricky race with Mick Channon’s handicap debutant looking the one to beat. We have applied blinkers again to sharpen him up and we are hopeful of a good run.

Rydan    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Tue 22nd Sep 2020
16:50, Lingfield Park

Promising run last time, when fourth here on the turf. If he can repeat that, should have good e/w chance being rated a few pounds lower on the AW. William Buick rides.

Looksnowtlikebrian 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
16:40, Warwick

Did well a few seasons ago but hasn't really built on that since and had a few niggly issues. First run since January and only second run back since a wind op. Last win came off a 5lb higher mark but Charlie can claim 5lbs so that brings his rating back to a winnable mark. But really with such a lay-off will just be happy with a solid return run.

Anti Cool    WINNER! winner

Wind op helped and ran a much better race.


Tue 22nd Sep 2020
16:05, Warwick

Outsider chances to be realistic, he has had a wind op since his last run, but needs to up his game and is probably better right handed. However, options are limited at the moment so he has to take his chance, as the ground at Perth could go too soft for him so heads here to Warwick.

Laugharne 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
15:30, Warwick

Has some useful hurdles form to his name and stays this 3m2f trip well. Ground is fine too and another that Richard Johnson rides for us today, so that's an obvious plus. Tongue tie on today to help with his breathing too, and even though is likely improve for the run though as last outing was back in November 19, not totally dismissed with just 4 runners. Present Chief looks the one to beat.

Dansing Bear 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
14:30, Lingfield Park

Dansing Bear ran well on debut hitting the line to finish 4th in a decent maiden here last month. He has drawn badly however in 11 and Mark Johnston’s looks the one to beat. We are confident of a strong performance and he should hit the line well.

Ahdab 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
13:55, Lingfield Park

Ahdab has had a wind operation and gelding. First run back after a very long time seems in good form. I am hopeful of a good run although he may need it. He has drawn well in 5 and it looks to be a relatively open affair.

Let The Heirs Walk    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Tim's horse - as expected.


Tue 22nd Sep 2020
13:15, Warwick

Nice winner for us last time out on stable debut - that was the horse's first run since coming from the Brendan Duke yard and has done well since that run in February. Hoping we've found another good chance for the horse to add to that win here and even though any rain would help should be fine on the quicker ground. Richard Johnson rides so be disappointed if he's not taking this.

Henry Oliver
Coulborn Hood 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
13:15, Warwick

Very much best-watched today. Only second career run and not been out since Oct 18 after having some setbacks. Will be happy with a clear round and build from there.

Capla Knight 
Tue 22nd Sep 2020
13:00, Beverley

Nice colt that's going the right way at home - debut run here today so likely to improve for the experience here today, but having said that is a horse that knows his job at home and with the 3lb jockey claim would not be shocked to see him run well. If all 8 run, then not without e/w claims.

Blackcurantspangle 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
20:30, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 13.5(Betfair Exc)

Is still very unexposed but was well beaten on handicap debut. Stevie knows him well and he did show encouraging signs at Windsor on this third start. Hoping the headgear might just help him concentrate a bit better too.

Maxine 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
19:30, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 55(Betfair Exc)

Going the right way and took another step forward on only her second run last time out at Kempton (5th of 14). Another learning experience for the horse today and we hope the longer trip will help, but likely to be a lot more competitive once handicapped.

Aquascape    WINNER! winner

Stayed well, powered clear and won with a bit to spare!


Mon 21st Sep 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 21(Betfair Exc)

Yet to win but has some fair form to his name and been second a few times too. Seems well after a small break. Trying him up slightly in trip as runs as if it will suit so if that's the case and he stays would have an e/w chance.

Alaskan Lady 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
17:00, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 46(Betfair Exc)

Ready for her first taste of a racecourse here today - 6f will give her a nice introduction but will be better over a little further with some experience under her belt.

A Day Of Mischief 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
17:00, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 170(Betfair Exc)

Two average runs so far - trying the cheekpieces today but needs to improve a lot to figure here and will be better once handicapped.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Another nice run from Gay's horse.


Mon 21st Sep 2020
16:25, Wolverhampton
DEC Odds: 15(Betfair Exc)

CD winner here so no problems on that front and won well here two runs back. Bit more needed off a 5lb higher mark than that last win and not the best draw in 8 as likes to race up with the pace. But on a plus the horse is well and can't be ruled out. Each-way.

Timely Gift 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
16:20, Warwick
DEC Odds: 5.4(Betfair Exc)

Won his last two, with the last win coming back in December - so will be returning off a break here. Has done well over the summer though and should have more to come this season. Up 8lbs since that last win too but still not too badly-treated on old form - has won off 2lbs lower before. Dickie rides and even though he'll improve for this due to the break is fit and well so should go well.

Agent of Fortune 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
16:10, Leicester
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

Been out of sorts recently. Now she has dropped down in grade that will help and 2lbs lower than last time, should have a much better chance and looks an e/w price.

Suzy Smith
Vue Cavaliere    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well to take second - one to watch.


Mon 21st Sep 2020
15:45, Warwick
DEC Odds: 10(Betfair Exc)

Ran well on her reappearance last time and the drop back to 2m should not be a problem for her. Competitive race but very genuine and likely to give another good account. Place claims.

Corri Lindo 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
15:15, Warwick
DEC Odds: 48(Betfair Exc)

Last seen winning well at Fakenham back in March - had the summer off and seems well for the break. That was his first career win from 19 runs. Acts well on good ground but we are 5lbs higher here and that last win we were able to claim 10lbs from the jockey. Therefore, more needed and expected to be sharper for the run, but on a plus the ground will be to his liking.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Scott's in-form sprinter is back to form!


Mon 21st Sep 2020
15:05, Leicester
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

Has found a bit of form again recently - winning at Southwell and then running close (2nd) at Catterick last time. Is creeping up the ratings again as a result and is another 3lbs higher than last time and in a better race here. Trip and ground are fine and taking his racing well at the moment. SDS rides for the first time so is a plus in the saddle and another solid run expected. But the in-form Midgley horse - Indian Sounds - might be hard for us all to beat.

Admirals Bay 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
14:15, Warwick
DEC Odds: 18(Betfair Exc)

Another of ours that is returning from a break. Fair performer on the flat when with Andrew Balding and after three runs over hurdles is into a handicap for the first time and that will help. Also first run back after a wind operation so hoping the horse can kick on now. Goes without saying will improve for this but the better ground will suit and would have small place claims.

Catlow 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
13:45, Warwick
DEC Odds: 11(Betfair Exc)

Lightly-raced 7 year-old that should certainly have more to offer. Dropped in grade here today will help and seems well after around 9 months off. The tongue-tie is on today too and should be more at home on the better ground. Kabrit and Cremant look the ones to beat but we head here with an e/w chance.

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner

Came with a well-timed late run to win again - and another nice TQ View winner this month!


Mon 21st Sep 2020
13:00, Leicester
DEC Odds: 6(Betfair Exc)

Has been in great form this year since we have changed her bridle and her liking of lay jockeys! This is an apprentice handicap for riders that have not ridden more than 10 winners so we have to have a different jockey again. Saffie Osborne is able to claim 5lbs though, while the track, ground and distance should be ideal so we hope she has a good chance of following up her last win.

Achy Breaky Heart 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
12:45, Warwick
DEC Odds: 12.5(Betfair Exc)

Much improved run last time, and the slight increase in trip should suit her. Although the Sedgefield form was not all that solid she should feature in the finish today.

Judex Lefou 
Mon 21st Sep 2020
12:45, Warwick

Overrated Passtime 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
16:25, Plumpton

A half-brother to the Grade 3 winning, 148 rated Gemini Lucy (best at 2m) and out of a bumper winner, and from the family of Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Jodami. He looks like he'll want this better ground, and providing he's not too green, he should run well today.

Serenisa 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
16:25, Plumpton

Is a sister to a 130 rated hurdler, from the family of the Midlands National winner Ackzo. She had one run in Ireland when she got rather bogged down in the mud, but she is a good moving horse who looks like she’d enjoy bouncing off this better ground today.

Red For All 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Red for All runs in the 4.00pm at Chelmsford on Sunday over 1m2f. We have decided to take the headgear of this horse as we feel it didn’t aid him at Kempton on his last start and his best form has been without them on. A return to 1m2f should be a plus and he is in good form at home. He isn’t drawn well in 11 but the booking of Ryan Moore, who rides both our runners today, is an obvious plus.

 

Subliminal 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Not won for a while and is at his best at Lingfield. Come back from a short break in great order and should have another good all weather season ahead. Rider knows him well but this looks a trappy event for the level.

Darebin 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
15:50, Plumpton

DAREBIN has been a solid performer over the years winning under all codes. Certainly had been struggling off his mark but now that DAREBIN is below his last winning mark I am hoping it may be enough to make DAREBIN competitive today. Competent conditional rider taking of 7 will help but the bottom weight KIRUNA PEAK looks to be on the upgrade and if he handles this sharp track is certainly the one to fear.

Global Art    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this month.


Sun 20th Sep 2020
15:30, Chelmsford

Global Art runs in the 3.30pm at Chelmsford on Sunday over 1m2f. He has drawn well in 2 and has shown some good form round here. It looks a nice spot for him and I am hopeful of a strong run. The booking of a brilliant jockey in Ryan Moore is an obvious plus.

Honorable 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
15:20, Plumpton

HONORABLE is proving tricky to get his head in front but does look well handicapped at present. Hoping that a change of headgear may help his case. Doing some very nice work at home and I think the track will suit but I suspect best watched today.

Vision Clear    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gary's horse.


Sun 20th Sep 2020
14:50, Plumpton

VISION CLEAR ran well enough on the flat several months ago after a break and could have just needed that run more than I thought. Came out and ran a respectable race at Fontwell just over a month ago when finishing third. I appreciate that this is a competitive race and VISION CLEAR will have to have come on from the Fontwell run to figure here today but I think that he has and with the top horse raised yet again for a recent win I think we have solid each-way claims.

Carntop 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
14:50, Plumpton

Carntop is 4lbs below his last winning mark, and has had a few excuses for his last couple of runs.  He needs to come from off the pace in a fast run contest over 2m, so we need to ride him for a 'bit of luck'. If the race pans out accordingly, then he'll have a chance at a big price.

Que Quieres 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
14:00, Chelmsford

Ran well enough here last start and the track suits him well. New rider takes over today and the horse seems in great shape so no surprise to see him run a big race.

Prince Percy 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
13:15, Plumpton

Not an easy race to evaluate at all and a case can be made for half the field. I like to think that PRINCE PERCY has as good a chance as any of these with racecourse experience on his side after a number of flat runs  finishing in the frame a couple of times as well as finishing second on his hurdling debut a couple of months ago. Certainly fit enough if good enough and it would be good if PRINCE PERCY could get his head in front today at the finish

Lightning Bug 
Sun 20th Sep 2020
13:15, Plumpton

Has strengthened up a lot this year and has been schooling and working well at home. Hopeful of a nice run but others have more experience today.

Ragtime Sally 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
20:15, Wolverhampton

Wasn't beaten too far last time out at Lingfield over 1m6f, but tried up to 2m here today and also in a better race. Low weight helps and the jockey can claim a useful 3lbs, but really more needed on what she's shown to date, with the Prescott and Ellison horses the obvious ones.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
19:45, Wolverhampton

6 raced maiden at the moment and well back last time - but stumbled after the break and lost all chance so can put a line through that last run. Time before, when 4th of 11, was a big step in the right direction and if repeating that would have a squeak. Jon Fisher has ridden him in all his races and can claim 5lbs again. Will need to break better and put that last run behind him but if he does then could outrun his odds.

Krystallite 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
19:15, Wolverhampton

Down the field here the last twice, but didn't have the best of draws both times. We've a better starting point here (2) so that helps and a proven CD winner. Last win came off a 10lbs higher mark so that gives us hope, but that did come back in June 18, so a bit to answer at the moment with 14 runs since that victory.

Isle Of Aron 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
17:55, Newton Abbot

Delighted with his debut run at Musselburgh back in February. Has got stronger over the summer and hopeful that racecourse experience will give him an edge over some of these. Tricky race to weigh-up with a lot of newcomers so probably not one to go overboard in, but our horse is fit and well - should have an e/w chance, but the plan will be to go over hurdles soon.

Light N Strike    WINNER! winner

Looks a horse going the right way.


Sat 19th Sep 2020
17:55, Newton Abbot

Out of a bumper winner who was a half-sister to the useful bumper, hurdle, and chase winner Ross River. He is from the very useful staying jumper Over The Creek. Light N Strike has been working well at home and looks to have a bright future. He’s a future staying chaser, but looks the type to win a bumper on route to better things.

Crosse Fire 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
17:15, Wolverhampton

13 wins on the AW but they've ALL come at Southwell. Bit to prove at the moment after some average runs and not getting any younger at 8 - this will be his 118th career run! A bit better last time when only 5 lengths behind our Dark Shot, but that came at his favoured Southwell. Draw 10 makes life hard too, but can really only be hopeful, rather than confident.

Monbeg Theatre 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
16:45, Newton Abbot

Monbeg Theatre was a decent handicap hurdler, and was on the verge of being graded class. He jumps well, but has always made one blunder in a couple of novice chases and that has proved costly. Another year older now, he should be able to win over fences this season, but this looks quite competitive.

Timoshenko 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
16:10, Newton Abbot

Timoshenko was a decent stayer on the flat. He won on hurdling debut over 2m, but has slightly disappointed under a penalty - however, we haven't got the tactics quite right. Up in trip here, on handicap debut, with cheek pieces applied, he shouldn't be too far away here.

Sazerak 
Sat 19th Sep 2020
15:35, Newton Abbot

Sazerak showed a good attitude to be 2nd in a bumper last time out. She lacks a bit of size and scope, but should have a future over hurdles.  She may appreciate a step up in trip in due course, and will improve for this experience.

Fancy Shapes    WINNER! winner

Improved run from Scu's horse.


Sat 19th Sep 2020
15:35, Newton Abbot

Former Pointer that is lightly-raced - returns from a break though and this is also her first run back from a wind op so just be happy with a soild run and build from there - will be better once handicapped too.

Dont Tell Claire    WINNER! winner

Went down by just a head but still a top run.


Sat 19th Sep 2020
15:15, Newmarket

Open-looking race - she's had a few of these in behind her in recent starts - although One Small Step got the better of her earlier in the summer.

Plenty Of Butty    WINNER! winner

Top call and another nice TQ View winner this month.


Sat 19th Sep 2020
15:00, Newton Abbot

Ran really well last time out at Uttoxeter after almost a year out - only really got tired in the closing stages, but still did well to finish fourth. We are a pound lower for that, but the drop back to 2m1f here is in his favour and he seems well after a month off to get over that last outing. Looking forward to another solid run.

Holiday Magic 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
20:15, Kempton Park

CD winner but has rather lost his way of late. In his defence had a bad draw last time out here and is dropped a few pounds for that. Is now drawn better in 6 and step back up to 1m is fine. Overall, is certainly capable off this mark and in a race like this but would like to see a return to form on the track first really as recent runs have been average to say the least.

Ten Chants 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
20:15, Kempton Park

Ten Chants runs in the mile 0-65 handicap at Kempton tomorrow night. He has had a successful campaign this year winning at Leicester two starts ago and was too far back at Salisbury last start and therefore had excuses. He returns to the all-weather as the ground is too quick at the moment for him on the turf and he looks to be in good order at home. It is an open race with a fair few horses in with a chance. George Wood who knows the horse well takes the rides and we are hopeful of a strong performance from him having drawn well in one.

Filles De Fleur 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

I was very pleased with FILLES DE FLEUR'S first run for me and she has put in a couple of other respectable runs as well. Working well and with luck she should have solid each-way claims tonight. I am hoping that taking 7lbs off will also be of benefit.

Seaborn 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
19:15, Kempton Park

SEABORN has been in good form recently winning his last two races, albeit over hurdles. Been raised 4lbs on the level since his last all weather success, but with an apprentice taking 7lbs off I hope  SEABORN can take this race this evening as well. Conditions remaining firm over sticks at present - hence a return to the flat - whilst in good heart and seemingly very well.

Gentleman At Arms 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
19:15, Kempton Park

Shown a good level of form from his four runs to date and we feel the step up in trip will suit. Up from 1m4f to 2m here today and if he stays this will open up more avenues for the horse. Only win came on the AW (Lingfield) so the surface will be fine (first run here) and Luke Morris has won on him in the past too. Probably just an e/w chance though with those few unknowns (stamina) to tackle.

Byron Hill 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
18:40, Kempton Park

Made a lovely debut at Wolverhampton before disappointing in a hot race on soft ground at Newbury. This is much easier and I'm hoping the return to the AW will also help.

Blue Eagle 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
18:40, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us - improved significantly from her debut last time out. We are hoping to see another big step forward today and we think the return to the AW will also help her.

Smoke On The Water 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
18:10, Kempton Park

Ran well over 6f on handicap debut and looked in need of this step up in trip. Kempton will suit and he should have a great chance.

Cape Greco    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gay's horse.


Fri 18th Sep 2020
18:10, Kempton Park

Only a pound higher than last win - that came at Southwell back in March. Hasn't really built on that since but didn't get the best of runs last time so had a bit of an excuse. George Rooke's 5lbs claim a further help and overall AW record not bad - 6 top three finished from 13, and has run third here at Kempton on only start over 1m. Good draw in 4 and if able to hold that position could have place chances, as we feel the horse is also a lot fitter than lat time. The Candy and Jenkins runners probably the ones to beat, but e/w claims.

Mayfair Pompette 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
17:20, Newbury

Rolfe Rembrandt 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
14:45, Ayr

Deserves to take his chance in this Listed race after a smooth win at Newbury last time out. Was slowly away that day too so was made to be even better and has come out of the race well. Any more rain would help as that win came on soft. More needed in this better race and a bit to find on the ratings but is going the right way and could run well at a fair price.

Mankayan 
Fri 18th Sep 2020
14:30, Newbury

Craneur 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Poor recent runs so more needed based on that - dropped 4lbs helps but wide draw in 11 not ideal either and will need plenty of luck from there too. Hard to get too excited until we see more on the track.

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Great shout from Julia and another nice TQ View winner this month!


Thu 17th Sep 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Has run well over course and distance in the past - the drop in class will suit here though. Dylan Hogan knows her well and is riding well at the moment too. Looks quite a weak race so we are hopeful that she has an each-way chance at a nice price.

Luxford 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Badly drawn (12) and finds it hard to win, but runs her best races on this track so fingers crossed of a betting showing if getting the breaks in-running from that draw.

Fortune Finder 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

First run for the stable. Not really had him that long so probably best watched on this occasion - we'll learn more today. 

Small Pianist 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

Has taken ages to get a race due to the small niggles, but he is finally ready to go. He too has ability, but the widest stall makes things harder. Hopefully another one to make an encouraging debut.

One Of The Girls 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
18:30, Chelmsford

Is having her third run and will be better suited when handicapped over 6 or7f.

Di Matteo 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
17:30, Chelmsford

Not run for around 3 months as had a few niggles - therefore, will certainly improve for this. Draw 9 not totally great but should be okay and career-low mark with Josh's 3lbs claim would mean she can't be totally ruled out in what looks a poor race. Blinkers and tongue-tie on today too to help her, but no matter what is a horse to look for in the coming weeks/months as would have ability off this rating and in these similar poor races. Small outsiders chance.

Jumping Cats 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
16:55, Chelmsford

Won nicely last time here at the course. This is probably a more difficult task and up 4lbs for that, but is well and came out of that last run well, so no reason why he shouldn't run well.

Relative Choice 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
16:25, Chelmsford

Disappointing run last time where things did not work out - bad draw and not a suitable surface that day two excuses though. Hopefully back on a sounder surface and a better draw (3) will give her every chance.

Trixie Mitskie 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
16:25, Chelmsford

Trixie Mitskie runs in the 5 furlong Nursery Handicap tomorrow at Chelmsford. She is being dropped back to her preferred 5 furlong trip and we have been happy with her at home. It is going to be hard having been drawn 12 on a tight turning track but we have our fingers crossed for a nice run.

Shamfizz 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
16:10, Yarmouth

Is a tough filly, who has definitely got ability but this is a decent race to start in. Should run well but to win would be a big ask.

Solo Hunter 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
15:20, Pontefract

Hopefully can make his long awaited return after almost 3 years off the track! First run for the yard too. Showed a decent level of form when racing back in 2016 and 2017 but goes without saying has had his problems, so after such a time off will be delighted with an injury-free solid effort - anything else a plus.

Gas Monkey 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
15:10, Yarmouth

Is stepping up in trip and grade here - he has been running consistently all year, the distance should not be a problem on quicker ground. Tyler Heard takes off a handy 7lbs and knows him better after finishing second on him before. We will be delighted if he can finish in the money in a Class Two.

London Arch 
Thu 17th Sep 2020
14:40, Yarmouth

Looked like being a lovely horse earlier this year but he got turned over at Lingfield and then everything went wrong at Haydock. I have given him time since then and gelded him too - with that we feel like he's back to his old self, but we'll find out today!

Sumelia 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
19:10, Kelso

A well-bred filly who has just had the one run a couple of seasons ago. Was very weak and backward then so has been given plenty of time since then. Works well at home so hopefully she can transfer her homework to the track.

Lovers Gait 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
17:30, Sandown

Game filly who should remain competitive now dropped in trip and eased in class.

Chapmanshype    WINNER! winner

Another top win for Jamie's progressive hurdler.


Wed 16th Sep 2020
17:10, Kelso

Has been a prolific winner and is now 5 wins from 8 starts in handicaps. He fairly bolted-up last time at Fontwell (where he is unbeaten) but the handicapper hasn't left any stone unturned by giving him a 10lb rise! This obviously makes life tricky in this competitive Class Two Handicap off top weight. However, he is in top form and is full of confidence, so let's hope he can defy this mark before stepping into Graded company.

Tight Call 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
17:10, Kelso

Could not have been happier with his return win at Southwell last month - raised 6lbs for that and up two grades in class here. On a plus though due to the higher grade of race we race off only 10st 7lbs as opposed to the 11st 8lbs last time. Trip is fine and loves this god ground, so we feel he deserves to take his chance in this better race with a nice prize on offer. Richard Johnson, who rode last time, remains in the saddle and he's now 3-from-3 on the horse so that gives us more confidence too! Hopeful of a good run.

Junkanoo 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
17:00, Sandown

Disappointing last time after a good winning run at Goodwood the time before. Better ground is fine and probably suffered with a slower pace last time. Therefore, if strong pace in the race, should have every chance as seems well at home. 

Global Esteem 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
16:50, Yarmouth

A horse we like a lot and very happy with his win over this course and distance last time out - has come out of that well and a 5lb rise looks fair enough as he did win by 2 lengths. Much quicker ground here (soft last time), so that's a slight concern, but with only 5 career runs is a horse we feel has more to come. Should go close and Tom Marquand rides.

Anglo Saxson 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
16:50, Yarmouth

Never far away in his races and more of the same expected today. Trip and ground are fine and returning to the scene of his only career win - Yarmouth - so hoping that helps too. Tiny bit to prove over this 1m trip, with slightly better runs coming over 7f, but we are also putting the visor on for the first time to see if that helps re the trip. Each-way chance. 

Justice Knight 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
16:40, Kelso

Ran well in unsuitable soft ground at Stratford last time - the winner has won again since so the form looks okay too. The ground will be more to his liking here today. First time over fences but has schooled well at home and if he takes to them in a race and on the track should run well. Each-way.

Via Serendipity 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
16:20, Yarmouth

Won well on stable debut at Ascot two runs ago and just took a bit of a hold last time when dropped back to 7f. The return to a mile a big plus and into a slightly easier race must give him a decent chance. Will also love the ground and Hayley knows him well.

Virgin Snow 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
15:10, Yarmouth

Virgin Snow has been in good form at home and I am looking forward to running her in the 1m 2f Listed Race at Yarmouth on Wednesday. It looks a competitive race on paper with a few improving fillies in the field. The likely favourites in my opinion look to be Roger Varian’s, Waliyak, who was very impressive on her last start when winning at Lingfield over this trip and Sir Michael Stoute’s, A La Voile, who is very much an improving horse. I am hopeful Virgin Snow will run a decent race though and she should thereabouts. Callum Shepherd takes the ride, who has also ridden her at home.

Ivynator 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
15:00, Beverley

Nice colt but is having his debut run here today so will learn a lot from this today (purchase at the breeze-up sales), while all the others have had the benefit of a previous run.

Night Eagle 
Wed 16th Sep 2020
14:50, Sandown

Tough race. Best watched until he goes handicapping.

Oneofthesenights    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Jamie's horse.


Wed 16th Sep 2020
12:25, Auteuil

Makes her long awaited seasonal debut in a conditions hurdle over 2m4f at Auteuil (France). She is unbeaten having won an Irish Point and three Novice Hurdles last summer. She gets a big weight pull and is in good form at home. Who quite knows the quality of the race, or her chances, but it's a 38k Euro race so it's worth a shot at some decent prize money.

Treble Clef 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
20:10, Kempton Park

Has disappointed the last twice and no real answer as to why - is certainly better than that, but the stable form a few months ago wasn't great so that might be it. The Warrior ran better last week so the signs re the yard form are better too. We've freshened-up Treble Clef though with a few months off and putting the visor on for the first time too to keep his mind on the job. We've also a good draw in 2, so if the visor and the break spark her into life then would certainly not be surprised if he ran better than her odds.

Aiguillette    WINNER! winner

Went down by just a nose.


Tue 15th Sep 2020
19:40, Kempton Park

Consistent sort on the AWT and in good order after a fine second at Yarmouth last month. Yet to win a race from 10 starts, but deserves to get his head in front. Visor is on for the first time today and the conditions could suit well - should me in the mix and looks like the Prescott horse to beat.

Cassidy Jo 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
19:10, Kempton Park

Fifth career run here today - yet to win but has run some promising races. Step back up in trip will help and will be fine at the track - first run here. Soft ground wasn't ideal last time and we think her future lies over this sort of trip or maybe further. The Beckett and Wall horses the likely winners so really just be happy with a step forward here and small place claims.

Beat The Breeze 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
19:10, Kempton Park

Ran well enough on return after castration last start and conditions should suit him here. Top rider booked and although stamina is yet to be proved he is well handicapped to take advantage if he gets home.

Burano Boy 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
18:40, Kempton Park

Burano Boy has been a consistent horse all year but just hasn’t quite reached his full potential yet. We feel his ideal trip is 1m4f and a more galloping track like Kempton may suit him more. We have added Cheekpieces to hopefully sharpen him up and Luke Morris rides who gets on with the horse well. Simon and Ed Crisford’s Myseven looks the horse to beat on form making his handicap debut here. I am confident of a good performance.

Cafe Milano 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
18:40, Kempton Park

Not run here yet and he looks a big outsider. Getting better handicapped though and sure to find his races as time goes on and no surprise if he belies his odds here.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Runner up last twice and worth a try over slightly further. Drawn outside again no help but her hold up style means this may not inconvenience her too much. Should be thereabouts if in the same form as last start.

Harrier Hawk

Harrier Hawk has been a filly who looks to be improving with every run. She ran a great race last start at Chelmsford to be second behind a nice horse of Mark Johnstons in Majd Al Arab. She has come out of this race well and a step up to a mile should suit her. She is drawn well in 5 and George Wood takes the ride.

Atailof Two Cities    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Tue 15th Sep 2020
16:50, Redcar

Has not got it together so far but it's still very early days and she is definitely better than her mark of 59. Visor should help sharpen her up and she will love the track. 14/1 could be a big price.

Coole Well    WINNER! winner

Ran a much better race for the Jamie Snowden yard.


Tue 15th Sep 2020
16:10, Hexham

Hasn't been easy to place since he won his novice hurdle a couple of seasons ago, but has been second in six of his subsequent 10 outings. He slipped up on his seasonal debut when still in with every chance and back from a short break he looks to be competitvely handicapped to win - if he can put his best foot forward. Can be a bit quirky though so we are taking all the headgear off today and hoping for a change that ignites a change of luck for him!

Global Hope    WINNER! winner

Powerful ride from Kirby to get Gay's horse home.


Tue 15th Sep 2020
16:00, Yarmouth

Open race but we head here with a decent chance at a course we are a proven CD winner at. Ran well in softer than ideal ground last time here so the better conditons will suit and we are also 2lbs lower. Adam Kirby rides the horse for the time and is another obvious plus. Competitive race though with a lot of similar-looking chances to us, so e/w chance.

Billies Girl 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
15:55, Kempton Park

Billies Girl is having her first run for a great supporter of mine in Paul Turner. She is a nice filly with a good mind and I am hopeful of a good run first time out. She will no doubt come on for this run and progress more as a three year old. She is drawn 13 and George Wood takes the ride.

Arenas Del Tiempo 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
15:55, Kempton Park

Best of the dam's off spring so far but is still quite unfurnished. Has done some good work so no surprise to see her run a big race but sure to come on for the experience.

Golden Love 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
15:50, Redcar

Is a beautifully bred filly who has shown a decent level of ability at home. Today is a lovely starting point, although we have the Haggas horse to beat.

Outrage 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
15:00, Yarmouth

Bad habit of missing the break, but if he gets the start right should be involved.

Mrsgrey 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
14:40, Hexham

Last seen unseating at Huntingdon back in March, but was beaten at the time. We've given her plenty of time off to get over that race and been well-schoolled since. Does look a race that revolves around the Nicky Richards horse (Millie Of Mayo) though so we might all be playing for places. On a plus, we are 5lbs lower than last time and will be better suited by the better ground today. Small place claims.

Ajrad 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
14:30, Yarmouth

Ajrad has run well behind some quality opposition on both of his maiden runs and was unlucky last time when he was a bit keen in a slowly run race. This looks the logical option for him entering nursery company and he should be very competitive here. Mark Johnston’s Majd Al Arab looks his stiffest opposition on paper. Jim Crowley takes the ride.

Lyrical 
Tue 15th Sep 2020
13:00, Yarmouth

Lyrical returned to form at Windsor when running on well to finish 3rd in a competitive run affair. She has come out of this race well and I am confident of a good performance. The ground is on the quick side which will be a concern but hopefully she will handle it. It looks a strong race with Roger Varian’s handicap debutant Progressive looking the one to beat on paper. Tom Marquand takes the ride.

Moveonup 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
20:20, Wolverhampton

Below par in better races than this last month but is 2lbs lower here and down significantly in grade. Well drawn in stall 2 too and Ray can claim 5lbs too - does need to find some old sparkle, but the easier oppo should help and could be dangerous to totally rule out based on that.

Global Warning 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
19:50, Wolverhampton

Returns to the scene of his best form after running a solid second here two starts ago. Evident that he didn't quite handle the ground (soft) and possibly the step up in trip last time at Windsor, so will be more suited with the AW here and the drop back in trip. Looks a trappy race on paper and not drawn well in 10, but hopeful of a better run and anything else a bonus.

Recuerdame 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
17:50, Wolverhampton

In good form and won here in a similar race last start. Seems to have got his confidence back and could easily follow up if the race goes ok for him from a wide draw (8).

Lady Dauphin 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
17:50, Wolverhampton

Lady Dauphin has her first run for the yard, having lost her way this is a bit of a learning exercise for us but on her best form she would be more than capable in this grade.

Pioneering    WINNER! winner

Gary told us this was his best chance of his three runners in the race.


Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:55, Lingfield Park

Third runner in the race for us and despite them all having chances this one would be the strongest one of the three in the race for us, if I had to stick my neck out. Moderate draw to overcome (8) is well at home after running well to be second at Chelmsford last time out - gets in off the same mark today so another one with a strong chance.

Iballisticvin 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:55, Lingfield Park

On of three in the race for us. Nice draw today in stall 5 and ran two respectable races last month here at Lingfield - one on the AW and the last one on the turf. Same mark as last time and Louis can claim 7lbs again so that helps. Return to the AW will help and overall record on the artificial surfaces is not too bad - 8 top three finishes from 13. Should have every chance in a tricky race for the grade. 

Light of Air 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:55, Lingfield Park

Very well drawn in 1 and has run well for this apprentice in the past. Dropped a few pounds after last run and we feel that if able to maintain his position, another one of ours in the race which should have every chance.

Piranhadrama 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:40, Wolverhampton

Nice filly. Goes well at home ahead of this debut run. Shows plenty of pace so the 6f trip should be fine and a nice draw in stall 2. Luke will give her every assistance from the saddle too and although it goes without saying she'll learn a lot from this, it also looks a race that she can be competitive in and we feel she's got a decent chance in if translating what she's doing at home to the track on debut.

Ivaquestion 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

Good sort but tries a new distance here and we are still learning about him. Stayed on well enough on first start for us over a mile but was readily outpaced two weeks ago here on turf.

Professor Galant    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Gay.


Mon 14th Sep 2020
16:10, Wolverhampton

One of the more experienced in the field with three career runs and hoping that gives us an edge. Fair form in all three races too, despite not winning and the form of her last run (4th of 13) has been boosted again by the winner that day. We've probably all got Hemmsa to beat, but Luke Morris takes over in the saddle too and feel we've got an e/w chance. 

Alex Gracie    WINNER! winner

Much improved run from Scott's horse.


Mon 14th Sep 2020
15:15, Thirsk

0 from 11 so far. Has done the bulk of his running on the AW to date - this will only be her second run on the grass. Bit to prove based on that as was down the field on only turf run, but only a plus is racing 5lbs lower here and the jockey claims 5lbs this time too. Bits and pieces of form to suggest she can't be totally ruled out off this mark, but does need to put a few average efforts behind her.

Beryl Burton 
Mon 14th Sep 2020
14:20, Lingfield Park

Very happy with her debut run at Salisbury last month when sixth of 12. Same trip and conditions here and has had a month to get over that run. Seems to have come on at home and with the expected improvement and that experience under her belt would have a small e/w chance, but we still expect her to learn from this and improve for the run.

Bolt N Brown

16:25, Chelmsford

Travelled well into the race last time at Ripon over 2m, but just ran out of gas at the business end. Therefore, the drop back to 1m6f is a plus and we've also been lowered a few pounds. Cieren Fallon takes over in the saddle and track should be fine (first run here). Feel we've got e/w chances here today.

Relativity 
Sun 13th Sep 2020
16:05, Wolverhampton

Tough looking race for the grade, but the horse took a step forward with a better run (2nd) at Kempton last time out. That was over 1m4f but ran is if this step up to 2m would suit (ran on well that day). If that's proved to be right then this lightly-raced sort must have a fair e/w chance here.

Moosmee 
Sun 13th Sep 2020
15:55, Chelmsford

Outsider here but well treated on his best form and it is taking us a while to get to know him. Needs to settle but this track should suit him and no surprise to see him go well at a big price.

Shanachloeleah 
Sun 13th Sep 2020
14:45, Bath

Only second run for the yard, but made a pleasing debut when 4th or 14 at Yarmouth last month. Has come on from that run and we think the step up to 1m2f will help her. Megan Nicholls booked to ride and she can also claim a handy 3lbs. Should have more to come and no shock to see her run well today.

Very easy win for Gary's horse.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
18:00, Lingfield Park

THECHILDRENSTRUST wins in his turn, a 2 pound rise above his winning mark is of concern, but hopefully we can overcome that by taking some weight off his back as he is ridden today by my apprentice Rhys who has won on this horse several times and knows him well.

Mankayan 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
17:15, Doncaster

Has been very good this year and should have won last time out. He has won over course and distance in the past and the ground will be perfect for him. Should go very close, with the Haggas runner - Al Muffrih - looking the obvious danger.

Donnie Azoff    WINNER! winner

Another promising run from Jamie's horse.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
17:05, Fontwell Park

Ran well to be second on debut behind a subsequent winner. He met all sorts of trouble that day and was forced to race very wide when only third on his next start. But he is better than that and with the best form to his name he should go close here unless a newcomer is quite special.

Fix Bayonets 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
17:05, Fontwell Park

This bumper looks to be stronger today than when FIX BAYONETS ran a respectable second here just over two weeks ago. Racecourse debut that day though and learnt a lot. Good attitude which may make him competitive in this better race but I am hoping the ground will not be too firm for him. 

Headland 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

First run for us after coming from the Martyn Meade yard. Has settled in well but first run on the track since January so likely to improve for this. Mark does have an attractive look to it based on old form, but really we'll also find out a bit more about him.

Ragtime Sally 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
15:50, Lingfield Park

Yet to shown us much on the track from 7 runs - is down another 3lbs here and the jockey can claim 3lbs too so that helps and trying her in a hood for the first time. Needs to show loads more still though to figure so best watched until we see a step forward. Will give jockey Kaia Ingolfsland some more experience in the saddle though - with this being her eleventh ride.

Beat The Judge    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Gary and another TQ View winner this month.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
15:25, Fontwell Park

BEAT THE JUDGE has taken on ASHUTOR before and beaten him at Newton Abbott so I would like to think that he can do same today as ASHUTOR has taken a rise in the weights. Certainly not a two horse race though as there are several others with decent claims today, but I hope BEAT THE JUDGE will have shown improvement from his recent win to give him strong claims today.

Fume 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
14:50, Fontwell Park

FUME bumped into one last time out here at Fontwell finishing second and picking up a three pound rise in the handicap for his trouble. I expect a decent run from him today as certainly fit enough - if good enough if he can overcome his adjusted handicap mark.

Spice War 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
14:50, Fontwell Park

Spice has had two recent runs on the flat, he ran ok first time but his next run was a bit regressive and because he loves his schooling so much I think he just finds flat racing a bit boring. Spice ran well in his first outing over hurdles at Kempton last season on his favoured good ground before looking a bit laboured in his next two runs on softer ground. We then gave him a good break and the plan was to go summer jumping before racing was halted, he was fit and well hence the reason we gave him a couple of spins on the flat off what we thought was a sensible mark. Spice does enjoy his jumping at home and I’ve put a pair of blinkers on him today just to sharpen him up especially over this slightly inadequate trip. The horses have also been going well this week so that's a good sign - looks an e/w chance in a race that probably revolves around the Nigel Hawke runner - Historic Heart.
Vorashann    WINNER! winner

Top call from Gary.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
14:50, Fontwell Park

First time in a handicap over hurdles and first run since a wind op which I hope may bring about some improvement. Ran in decent company on previous hurdle runs so in this lesser grade race with a decent amount of weight taken off I hope to see a more respectable run.

GA Law    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Jamie.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
14:15, Fontwell Park

Is a half-brother to a graded chaser we used to trainer called Val De Law. Like him, GA Law won a novice hurdle in France prior to arriving here. He too took a while to settle in, and then became a very good chaser. GA Law ran once for us last season and wasn't beaten far under a penalty. He jumps for fun and although he will improve for this run, he is a proper chaser and the weight-for-age allowance will give us a chance if the favourite disappoints again.

Fifty Ball 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

Tricky race to assess with most of the runners having been absent for a while. First run for me from FIFTY BALL, he has won a couple of AQPS flat races in France but under softer conditions than today.  Having been off the track for nearly a year he just may come on for the run, but I think quite a lot of him from his work at home.

Strike The Flint 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

Acts best on top of the ground - which was pretty hard to find last season. First run over hurdles and others have more experience but could run well into a place at a decent price.

King Ottokar 
Sat 12th Sep 2020
13:15, Doncaster

Didn't get home on soft ground at Windsor last time out but his work since putting a visor o him has been completely different and has shown me much more speed. His dam was a 6f Listed winner too. The ground was beautiful there yesterday and I think it's worth trying him on it in this massive drop in grade.

Shantou Master    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gary's horse.


Sat 12th Sep 2020
13:10, Fontwell Park

It was good to see SHANTOU MASTER win here at Fontwell recently. I think decent ground helped and with similar conditions today I hope to see a good run. SHANTOU MASTER has to overcome a penalty today and there are a couple of others in the race with some solid claims after recent runs but SHANTOU MASTER looked to enjoy getting his head in front just over three weeks ago, has a great attitude and in good form at home so I have to give him every chance today.

John Leeper 
Fri 11th Sep 2020
16:15, Doncaster

Frankel colt - John Leeper - is a horse that is very close to my heart being out of my champion mare - Snow Fairy. He's a big-striding and well-built colt with a nice attitude. Excited to get going with him in this maiden, but is also expected to need it and only improve for the experience. William Buick rides.

Alibaba 
Fri 11th Sep 2020
15:30, Chester

Has improved after lockdown - winning twice - he struggled last time out on the firm ground and came home very jarred up. Easy ground here will be to his liking and the step up in trip will suit based on breeding. He is in good form at home so has a good each-way chance and a nice price.

Red Verdon 
Fri 11th Sep 2020
15:15, Doncaster

As always, the Donny Cup is another competitive affair but at least there is no Stradivarius this year! Spanish Mission looks the one to beat but Red Verdon has been in great form all year and should really relish the good (quicker) ground. I expect a good run and we are hopeful he'll stay the 2m2f trip, which will be the furthest he's gone to date. Frankie, who won on him two starts ago in France, riding is also an obvious plus.

Chiefofchiefs 
Fri 11th Sep 2020
14:10, Doncaster

Has been a star this year and was a shade unlucky last time out on ground that would have been too quick for him. He will love conditions today. Track is perfect and the trip is ideal too (6 1/2f). He needs to win here if we are going to take up our engagement in the Champions Sprint at the end of the year.

Robero 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Pulled out at Doncaster yesterday as the ground was probably too dry for him. Nice draw in 1 here so that helps, but looks a tough race and does need to bounce back from a few average performances of late. So really just be delighted with a step back in the right direction here.

Lauberhorn Rocket 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Seems to like it here - hence why we are coming back. CD winner at the track back in June and only 2lbs higher here. Charlie rides again and can claim 5lbs, while the horse has been freshened up with a few months off and seems well for it. Cheng Gong and Affair probably the ones to beat but if repeating his winning run here earlier this season must have fair place claims.

Que Quieres 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Not been in the same form as last Winter so far but had a good record here. Back to his last winning mark and would have an obvious chance on his old form. No surprise to see him involved if the race goes right for him.

Lady Marwah 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
17:40, Chepstow

Fit from running over hurdles last month but runs on the flat here for the first time. Showed ability in bumpers but has struggled a bit with injuries and mostly with her jumping over hurdles. However, does retain ability but the niggle here will be the 1m4f being a bit on the sharp side - likely to be better on the flat over further.

Red Glory 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
17:30, Chelmsford

We were pleased with his debut run at Sandown at the end of last month - when 9th of 14 over 7f. He jumped out well that day and just got tired in the closing stages. This race at Chelmsford looks a good steppingstone for him and hopeful he can be competitive, but we are more excited for his 3 year-old campaign next season, where he'll be stepping up in trip.

Vulcan    WINNER! winner

Gained a much deserved first win.


Thu 10th Sep 2020
16:05, Haydock

Has run two good races in defeat to be second at Newbury and Sandown recently - gets in here off the same mark as last time and Dylan, who rode last time, remains in the saddle and can claim 3lbs. Trip fine and handles the soft well - with the slight ease in grade should have every chance again, with the Channon horse (Wightman) probably the one to beat. Each-way.

Dubious Affair 
Thu 10th Sep 2020
15:15, Doncaster

Has done nothing but improve this year and despite hating conditions at Newmarket last time out, she produced a career-best performance to give a very decent stayer a scare. The track (CD winner here) and ground today will suit her much better and I think she has a great each-way shout.

Trixie Waterbury    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Harry's horse.


Wed 9th Sep 2020
18:45, Wolverhampton

Third run here today so will get a handicap mark after this. Two average runs to date but at least handled the track well last time. Needs to settle a bit better today so the hood remains on. Work in progress and will learn more here today.

Mustang Alpha 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
17:15, Uttoxeter

Won an Irish Point on good ground. He's been third in two novice hurdles over 2m on soft ground and picked up a mark of 111 as a result. He's undoubtedly better than that, so hoping the combination of stepping up markedly in trip on better ground will see him improve.

Vinnie The Hoddie    WINNER! winner

Gallopped them into the ground.


Wed 9th Sep 2020
16:45, Uttoxeter

Vinnie The Hoddie ran a blinder here last week in a competitive race where four horses had a chance winning going to the last fence, Vinnie had been a bit keen early on in the race that day so unfortunately he had no more to offer on the run in. The most pleasing thing about that run was his jumping, he’s got tons of scope at home but he can lose concentration in a race and as result he lost his confidence last winter. I am concerned that this race may come a bit soon for him but there is nothing else for him for a few weeks and long gaps between his races doesn’t really suit him either as he gets too fresh and keen again ....then you’re back to square one. Vinnie is a talented horse but he is a work in progress, he just needs a few confidence boosting clear rounds and to learn to relax in his races so I can eventually step him up in trip because all he does is gallop. Vinnie is a gent to deal with but he is cold backed to get on and he can be strong on the gallops. He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.

War Empress 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
16:40, Kempton Park

War Empress too time off during lockdown but it probably has been a blessing for her - she looks to have come back in good form. This looks to be a weak race so we hope she is fit enough to do herself justice here. Whatever she does she will improve for the run though.

Dark Shot 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
16:15, Doncaster

Jersey Bean    WINNER! winner

Another top run from a Oliver Sherwood horse on the day. 


Wed 9th Sep 2020
16:10, Uttoxeter

Jersey Bean has run over fences three times previously and his jumping has been good but a bit too careful - but been second twice so not a bad start for him over the bigger obstacles. Bean went over to Henrietta Knight a month ago where he did some intensive schooling and she suggested we try blinkers on him, not because he is ungenuine but to get him to concentrate more on his fences, we have used them on him at home and his jumping is more accurate as a result. Bean has ability but he’s not the biggest horse and when the handicapper had him in his grip he was unable to shoulder the big weights in lower grade hurdle races but he found bigger races a bit too competitive. Bean is a cheeky horse by nature, a bit of a playboy but harmless. He will be ridden by Brendan Powell. If the blinkers help in the race then another of ours with place claims today.

River Sprite 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
16:05, Kempton Park

Hasn't built on a promising start to her career over course and distance (2nd, Sept 19) as a 2 year-old. A return to the same venue can hopefully get her back on track.

Mayfair Spirit 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
15:45, Doncaster

Has been a star for my yard and is still on a competitive mark. He will love Donny and the ground so should run his race as usual in what looks a very open and competitive affair. Place claims.

Cervaro Mix    WINNER! winner

Top run from Oliver's horse.


Wed 9th Sep 2020
15:35, Uttoxeter

Cervaro Mix (Alan) ran well on his seasonal debut at Southwell last month when finishing a close up third. Gavin gave him a patient ride on that occasion because he can be very keen when he’s fresh but they went a good gallop in the race so he actually settled nicely. Alan will improve for that outing but he is carrying top weight today and he’s not over big. Alan is a sweet horse at home although he can be strong on the gallops. He will be ridden by Gavin Sheehan. Open affair but if building on that last run should have fair e/w chances.

The First Hurrah 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
15:30, Kempton Park

Is a nice filly with lots of potential. His work at home has been good and she is definitely ready to run. The outside draw (9) is a negative, but I would be disappointed if she didn't run a decent race.

Onassis 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
15:15, Doncaster

Is a very good filly, with loads of speed so I am expecting her to appreciate the drop to 7f. She will love the track and ground and the big field should ensure there is a decent pace. Hayley rides and gets on well with the horse. Each-way.

Maxine 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
14:55, Kempton Park

Pleasing debut run at Lingfield over 7f and would have learned a lot from that. Up to 1m here will help as breeding suggests she'll want further in time. Be happy with a step forward here but likely to need more time and to be handicapped.

Copper Coin    WINNER! winner

Ran well to land the e/w money.


Wed 9th Sep 2020
14:30, Uttoxeter

Has some good form to his name but flopped when last seen back in November at Ascot. That came in a better race and is well after a break. Has also gone well off a lay-off in the past and has been doing plenty of work at home. We've probably all got Minella Encore to beat but should run well and looks to have nice e/w claims.

Caffe Macchiato 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
14:30, Uttoxeter

Second runner in the race for us - owned by the Michael Owen Racing club, but unlikely to hit the back of the net here as returns from around 6 months off. A nice horse though that we got from France and has won twice in the past. Looking forward to getting the horse going but another that will benefit from a handicap mark.

Bohemian Maestro 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
14:30, Uttoxeter

Down the field on debut run at Ffos Las in January - that came on heavy ground so conditions more to his liking here but likely to be better with more runs and once handicapped.

Hickeys Rock 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
14:00, Uttoxeter

Second division of this Conditional jockeys' race - this is a horse we got from the Mouse Morris yard in Ireland and has only had one run for us, when pulled up at Ludlow back in Feb. The better ground here will certainly help though as found conditions a bit too soft that last day. Likely to improve for the run though after a break, but should certainly be more competitive on this ground.

Carolines Quest 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
13:30, Uttoxeter

Not shown much to date from three runs, but first time into a handicap here today will help. Looks on a fair mark and Charlie's 3lb claim will help - done well over the spring and summer too so hoping to kick on with her now. We'll learn more here but certainly hopeful of a much better showing.

Relative Choice 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
12:55, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us today. Won well at Wolves the last day on only her fourth start at 5f. Up 4lbs for that looks fair enough and has come out of that race well. Step up to 6f is fine and if overcoming a bad draw (12), should have every chance.

Celestial Point 
Wed 9th Sep 2020
12:55, Kempton Park

First time in a handicap so that will help after three okay runs. Nice draw (6) and the step up to 6f will be fine. Hopefully she can improve today.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Nice run again from Scott's horse - only just failed.


Tue 8th Sep 2020
16:30, Catterick

Bounced back to winning form last time out at Southwell - back on the turf today but only 4lbs higher than that last win and also down in grade here. Has run well at this track in the past too and we're delighted to have Cieren Fallon booked to ride. Remarkably has still only won 3 times from 50 runs but still looking well-handicapping and if that last run has given him his confidence back then could be very dangerous again.

Former Pointer that is lightly-raced with only one past run. Nice horse though and a good recruit to the yard. Nice pedigree too - a little head-strong at home but is fit and well so hoping he can run a big race on rules debut.

Pure Bubbles 
Tue 8th Sep 2020

Nice colt but having his debut run here today in what looks a tough little race. Likely to learn a lot from this and really best-watched on this occasion.

Included 
Tue 8th Sep 2020
15:15, Newton Abbot

Was a fine second on stable debut in July off 2lbs lower - but disappointed back over hurdles when we turned her out quickly. Back off a bit of a break and she is fresh and well for it. She wouldn't be the most trustworthy, but if she put her best foot forward then she would have a great chance here - but that is a 'BIG IF' and this looks quite competitive.

Stormingin 
Tue 8th Sep 2020
14:25, Goodwood

He is what he is really these days - fairly consistent in this sort of grade but wins to runs record (2-from-40) highlights he's not an easy horse to catch right. Handles the track and ran okay to be third here recently - but same mark today so, therefore, no more than an each-way chance really.

Croeso Cymraeg    WINNER! winner

Travelled well and got the job done well - great quote from James Evans!


Tue 8th Sep 2020
14:25, Goodwood

Consistent sort that ran another good race last time when second at Chepstow. Up 2lbs for that but regular pilot Raul de Silva is back riding today and the horse is well after just over 3 weeks off. Looks a wide-open race, but the track and trip will suit and should be thereabouts at the finish.

Casa Loupi 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
18:30, Windsor

Promising run last time when sixth at Sandown - and could have been better as wasn't the best away and also got hampered in the race. Hopefully can build on that today in a slightly lower grade and we are also 3lbs lower.

Valletta Sunset 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
18:30, Windsor

Disappointed on handicap debut but it was during the heat wave and we think he was affected by the heat. He is stepped up in trip here on better ground and with the 'all-conquering' Hollie Doyle riding we are hopeful of a better run.

Gentleman At Arms 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
16:55, Leicester

Every chance if running to the same level as last time when a close second at Salisbury. Deeper race than last time though so a bit more needed, but we return on the same mark so that helps and still unexposed with just three runs. Softer ground to contend with too but we feel he'll handle it - each-way chance

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well to take this for the Julia Feilden yard.


Mon 7th Sep 2020
16:35, Lingfield Park

Has been running well all year - she ran too keen with no cover last time so lost her chance. If she gets cover this time she will be thereabouts with an experienced apprentice in Georgia Dobie riding - she does seem to run best for the girls!

The Warrior    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third and the e/w money.


Mon 7th Sep 2020
16:35, Lingfield Park

Talented old-timer on his day and in this sort of grade these days - and dropped in to a 0-60 today will help. Ran well again last time here (AW) over a mile when a staying on fourth - but always a horse that's a risky proposition as likes to come from the back and if the gaps don't come at the right times it makes life a lot harder. Slight drop in trip is fine and off the same mark here gives on the turf us a similar chance to last time. Despite only 1 win from 39 on the turf I'm not worried about that as has 10 top three finishes on the grass too. Good jockey in Josh Bryan riding too. Only really concern though is the draw (2) as that's not really ideal for him, being he likes to come from off the pace. If he gets stuck on the rail from there, but find it hard for the breaks to come. Fit and well though and if getting the luck from the draw a chance - Therefore, likely to be more of an e/w option, rather than win.

Silver Cliffs 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
15:30, Lingfield Park

Very unlucky last time when not getting the best of runs at Yarmouth (4th). Hopefully he can put it right today, but has got his fair share of weight so that would be the only negative. Tom Queally takes over in the saddle. 

Gypsy Boy 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
14:30, Lingfield Park

King Zain the clear one to beat here on the form we've seen on the track so far. Our horse hasn't shown much so far from two runs, but it's still early days with the horse. Will benefit from having George Rooke claiming 5lbs but really he'll be a lot more competitive once into handicaps.

Donald Llewellyn 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

Disappointing last time over 2m at Goodwood. Hopefully didn't stay the distance on the heavy ground and will show his true colours today. Prior to that last run had run a good race at Chepstow behind a useful sort so there is promise there. Therefore, with the drop in trip and better ground a plus hopeful of better.

Raha 
Mon 7th Sep 2020
13:15, Leicester

Returns after a year off the track - she had the winter off and was then ready to run in March but then lockdown came and she had to be taken out of training so it's taken a while to get her fit again. She has strengthened up a lot for the break though and will be worth following in the future, but she will probably need the run here today.

Agent of Fortune

Rainbow Storm 
Sun 6th Sep 2020
16:20, Fontwell Park

This will Rainbow Storms first race, he was ready to run last spring before the shutdown. Rainbow goes nicely at home, he’s a thorough galloper that may get a bit tapped for toe but I’m confident he’ll stay on to the line. Rainbow is a real trier and what he lacks in size he makes up for in heart. Looking forward to getting going with him and even though the Lacey and Mulholland look the obvious ones we are not without place claims.

Pontresina    WINNER! winner

Placed first bet was demoted to second - still a top run.


Sun 6th Sep 2020
15:50, Fontwell Park

Pontresina is an honest horse who has been placed five times from eight runs when running on his favoured good ground. He has schooled nicely at home he’s not over big but he’s neat and athletic over an obstacle, he’s not flash in his work but is very competitive when upsides. This will be his first run for us over fences, but he did win a point to point before joining Rhonehurst. He is a thoroughly likeable horse who is very straightforward to deal with. Looks to have an e/w chance here today.

Boma Green    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Sun 6th Sep 2020
15:40, York

Made a nice comeback at Chepstow a few weeks back after a very long time off the track. This is a very different race today but the ground should be beautiful and he will love the track. Big ask to win it but will run well with Hollie Doyle an obvious plus in the saddle too.

Mr Chua 
Sun 6th Sep 2020
15:05, York

In rude health at the moment - winning his last two in great fashion. Turns out again just 4 days after winning well at Lingfield on Wednesday but has come out of the race well. Carries a 5lb penalty here and Jim Crowley, who was on last time too, remains in the saddle. Another step forward needed and a small concern over the quick return, but in great form and looking forward to another big run.

Big Jimbo    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Gary's horse.


Sun 6th Sep 2020
14:45, Fontwell Park

This looks a decent Juvenile Hurdle for the time of year and could be interesting. BIG JIMBO made a pleasing enough debut over hurdles back in July and the two that finished in front of him have both won. Certainly fit enough if good enough as he subsequently ran on the flat. Again, there is a case for several of them but I am pleased enough with BIG JIMBO and I give him every chance

Tazka    WINNER! winner

Top quote from Gary!


Sun 6th Sep 2020
14:10, Fontwell Park

TAZKA ran in some smart company as a juvenile but then appeared to flounder losing her way. I am hoping that I have got her back on track and at a course where she has won, I hope to see a more respectable performance from her today. JOLY MAKER is still an attractive looking prospect off his mark but I would like to think TAZKA can finish very close to him today.

Quloob 
Sun 6th Sep 2020
13:10, Fontwell Park

Tricky race to evaluate actually - with a case for several of today's runners. QULOOB won nicely here at Fontwell just over a week ago and if in the same form he has a strong chance today. Came out of the race well and has been running consistently well on the flat and I am very happy with him at present.

Halfacrown 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
21:00, Wolverhampton

Ran well last time and the drop back in trip today with a good claimer riding. Much will depend on the run of the race, but he has small place claims at a fair price from a wide draw.

Di Matteo 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
19:30, Wolverhampton

Stratton Oakmont 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
17:50, Stratford upon Avon

Is out of a sister to three winning jumpers. He went away for a racecourse gallop at Lingfield in the Spring and then the Coronavirus stopped racing. It may have been a blessing in disguise though as he has developed and matured over the summer into a nice type of horse. He goes well at home and should be capable of running a nice race on debut here. It looks a competitive enough bumper but if he settles and handles the occasion, then he shouldn't be too far away at the business end.

Anglo Saxson 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
16:20, Kempton Park

Anglo Saxon ran great in a deeper race than this a few weeks ago. A mile around Kempton suits and he too could run a nice race today and should not be far away.

Via Serendipity 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
16:15, Ascot

Via Serendipity was impressive at Ascot last time over a furlongs further. Drop to 7 is no issue as there is plenty of pace and the ground should be perfect. He can go very close today. Hayley rides.

Prince of Arran 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
14:35, Kempton Park

Prince of Arran has got his work cut out today and would need enable to be well below par if he was to beat her. He has the perfect draw to sit on her tail and she should give us a lovely lead around. Hopefully we can finish a respectable 2nd to Enable!

Perfect Inch    WINNER! winner

Top run from Charlie's horse.


Sat 5th Sep 2020
14:30, Ascot

Perfect inch was completely unsuited by the slow pace at Salisbury so put a line through that. Drop back to handicap company is a big plus and she should love the track. I expect her to run well today - looks a nice e/w price.

High Renown 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
14:25, Stratford upon Avon

Showed a glimmer of promise in bumpers, but has achieved very little to date over hurdles. He looks limited on what he has shown and this looks too competitive for him once again. He'll find life easier in low grade handicaps.

Outisaid 
Sat 5th Sep 2020
14:25, Stratford upon Avon

Looks to rest between the first four in the market - our runner ran a respectable race (3rd) at Stratford last time out - albeit beaten 33 lengths. Another step forward here will be a bonus but is really best-watched and will be better once into handicaps (one to note then), with the Kim, Nigel, Alan and Alex's horses to one that are sure to fight this one out.

Lord Halifax 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
20:50, Kempton Park

Carnwennan 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
19:20, Kempton Park

Carnwennan ran a huge race in the Northumberland plate from too far back before disappointing again on turf. He is clearly much better on the all weather now so this switch to Kempton is perfect and he should run well.

Dont Tell Claire 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
17:55, Ascot

Steps up in class after winning nicely at Sandown - the less rain the better as softer going an unknown.

Achy Breaky Heart    WINNER! winner

Top run from Robin's runner.


Fri 4th Sep 2020
17:30, Sedgefield

Former winning Pointer that showed ability in a bumper back in March. We were disappointed with her last time on hurdles debut though, but couldn't find anything amiss. Hoping for a much-improved run today - slight worry that the trip will be a bit on the short side.

Tulfarris    WINNER! winner

A nice return run back from Charlie's horse.


Fri 4th Sep 2020
16:15, Ascot

Tulfarris was sold to Norway last year but that didn’t work out. He seems to be in as good a form as he was when he left and he loves this track and cut in the ground. Should go well.

The Whipmaster 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
15:05, Ascot

Fair debut run when fifth of 10 at Ascot. That experience will help him this time, but still probably best-watched in what looks a competitive race.

Champagne Piaff 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
15:05, Ascot

One of two in the race for us and looks a competitive affair - another of ours having it's debut here today so will come on for this and really best watched on this occasion.

Pure Bubbles 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
15:05, Ascot

George Scott 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
14:30, Ascot

George Scott made a lovely debut at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks ago (5th) and should love the switch to turf and drop back to a stiff 6 furlongs. Hayley rides and should be thereabouts.

Marks Bear 
Fri 4th Sep 2020
13:55, Ascot

Debut on the track here today so goes without saying the horse will learn a lot from this. But goes nicely at home and should have an each way chance.

Jumping Cats    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner.


Thu 3rd Sep 2020
20:50, Chelmsford

Giving weight to three-year-olds is a worry but back on a track where he has run well (CD winner) and hopefully should have every chance. 

Outrage 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
20:20, Chelmsford

Not the ideal track for a 'come from behind' sprinter but there are a few other options for him at present so will see if we can get lucky with the splits.

Envol De La Cour 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
19:30, Southwell

Was set to run a big race at Wetherby over fences back in March when unseating Brendan Powell. Back over hurdles today to give him a confidence booster and has done well during his 6 months off. Step up in trip a slight unknown but we feel it will be fine around here and on this better ground. The horses seem to be running well at the moment too so looking forward to getting going again with this one and should run well.

Lawmaking 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
18:50, Chelmsford

Nice draw in 4 and proven CD winner at the track - in fact, we landed this race 12 months ago! Returns from almost 3 months off as we gave him a break after running well below-par last time at Newbury in June. Decent AW record with 6 top three finishes from 12 runs and gone well off a break in the past too. Only a pound higher than last year's win in this race so based on that hard to rule out at a venue and in a race he's proven. Fair e/w chance in an open race.

Mr Scaramanga 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
18:50, Chelmsford

Becoming better handicapped and ran well enough last time. Not won here yet but loves racing and can never be entirely left out at this level.

Secret Art 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
18:20, Chelmsford

Very disappointing of late so probably best-watched until he shows a spark back on the track.

Talkingpicturestv 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
18:00, Southwell

Nice winner at Market Rasen at the end of July but shot up 7lbs in the handicap as a result and is now 19lbs higher than when winning at Catterick three runs back. Found the Cartmel track a bit on the tight side last time but still ran on well to take a distance third. Up another 3lbs here so now 10lbs higher than last win and into a better race. On a plus, is well after a small break and the horse is well so could run well (place), but more needed off this mark and in this higher grade so probably hard to see us winning.

Pioneering    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gary's horse.


Thu 3rd Sep 2020
17:50, Chelmsford

CD winner here at the track and is down in grade. Not a very good draw (11) but if able to overcome, should have every chance.

Saturn n Silk    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take second.


Thu 3rd Sep 2020
17:00, Southwell

Ran much better last time out in a bumper at Doncaster (4th) and has progressed at home since - stronger horse. Tom a plus in the saddle and won't mind conditions here today. Winners, Emmarelli and Seaton Carew are feared as is the Henderson runner - Go Chique - so these are probably the likely winners, but we are not without small place claims.

Aquascape 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
16:50, Salisbury

Hollie Doyle booked to ride but needs to bounce back from a poor run last time out at Goodwood - but is better than that. Had been running better prior to that last run, but last time was a harder race than he'd been used to. Slight ease in grade will help, but probably does need to find more in what looks still looks a tough race for the grade. Hopefully Hollie can work some magic.

Reims 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
16:15, Salisbury

Made an encouraging debut for the yard when third over 6f. Drop back to 5f looked like it would suit that day though and first run on the turf here today.

Lady of Aran 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
15:40, Salisbury

Ran a great race at York last time out, but I felt her petrol tank was running out in the last furlong. The drop back to 6f should, therefore, suit and she will love the ease in the ground. Georgia keeps the ride and is able to claim 5lbs again.

Blackcurantspangle 
Thu 3rd Sep 2020
13:35, Salisbury

Ran an eye-catching race last time out at Windsor - when sixth. First time into a handicap here today and he should love the easier ground, while Salisbury will suit.

Hydraulic 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
20:45, Wolverhampton

Showed a little bit at the track - which is the only real encouragement from three starts to date. The longer trip should suit as he doesn't do much quickly. He's a very big horse though and is strengthening all the time.

Chamomile 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
19:45, Wolverhampton

CD winner here, but not gone from a really encouraging course and distance win last season - and was too free over further last time so will need to learn to settle better here today, but hopeful the drop back in trip will help.

Ask Robin 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
19:00, Hexham

Ask Robin has shown glimmers of form on good ground - but got stuck in the winter mud last season on the back of an absence. He has had his issues but he seems in a good place now and granted a bit of luck he could go well providing he's sharp enough on the back of another break.

Gorham's Cave 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
17:40, Bath

Disappointing latest. Track might suit, however so may be worth another chance getting weight from most of the others.

Good Luck Charm 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
17:15, Lingfield Park

Still going strong in the right grade at the age of 11. Ran very well latest - when second here on the AW. Would have to have a solid chance again down to 7f - with Rhys riding again and taking off a handy 7lbs.

Ubla 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
17:15, Lingfield Park

Ran well for much of the way last time at York - but just didn't really go through with it at the end. Similar conditions here and a nice draw in 2 help for this apprentice race. Also hopeful the visor (first time) will help so in what looks an average race should go well if putting it all in today.

Hollywood Road 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
17:05, Bath

Been a bit disappointing since returning from a long break. Seems well at home now though, so hopeful of a better show after also being dropped another 4lbs and down in grade too.

Galactic Spirit 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
17:05, Bath

Has his own ideas about racing and normally very slowly away. Blinkers on for the first time and claiming off him today. If he decided to put in some effort today would have a chance on last year's form.

Ivaquestion 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
16:45, Lingfield Park

Ran just ok on debut and probably better suited to turf and soft ground. Drying ground now may not be ideal but has plenty of ability and sure to find his races as time goes on.

Sea Of Charm 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
16:30, Wolverhampton

Debut run here today - nice filly but like a lot of mine first time out will improve for the experience.

Pisgah Pike    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to win this easily.


Wed 2nd Sep 2020
16:15, Hexham

Ran well to be third in a bumper last season - but found the softer ground caught his wind out. We rectified his wind this summer and he put in an improved display at Market Rasen in July. He's fresh and well and this looks a very good opportunity for him to get his head in front, given a clear run.

Lovers Gait 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
16:00, Bath

Steps up to 1m4f in a deeper race here so more on his plate - has won two from two at the track though this summer so that's a big plus.

Agent of Fortune 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:30, Bath

Shot up the handicap after 7 wins since coming to us last year. Down in grade here today though and wasn't beaten too far in a Class 3 race last time out at Goodwood. Got her fair share of weight in this easier race, but surely in this company should have every chance. Each-way

Vinnie The Hoddie 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:20, Uttoxeter

Vinnie began his chasing career last season with credit at Wincanton when finishing second, he jumped exceptionally well on that occasion and the fences around there are pretty big and can be trappy for novices. After that he rather lost the plot. Vinnie is a highly-strung horse and he just seemed to lose concentration in the jumping department, it’s so frustrating knowing how well he can jump, he has tons of natural scope. He can be a gassy horse especially when he’s fresh so first and foremost I want a clear round today so we can rebuild his confidence because he does have ability. Vinnie is a gentle horse to deal with in his stable but he can occasionally be a bit of a boy to ride, quite cold backed and spooky he’s also fairly keen on the gallops in his work.

Immortal Beloved 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:10, Lingfield Park

Just got up at Sandown last time out, looking like she will have no problem staying further. She is on good form and should have no issues with the track or ground. Hopefully she should to close!

Mr Chua    WINNER! winner

Another game win for Scus improving sort.


Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:10, Lingfield Park

Improving all the time and did well to win in a bunch finish at Chester last time out. Only 3lbs higher for that and the step up from 1m6f to 2m should be fine. Jim Crowley an obvious plus in the saddle and has run over this course already this year. Another bold bid on the cards and looks to have a solid e/w chance with the Fellowes horse looking the one to beat.

Rydan 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:10, Lingfield Park

No 20-1 chance. Has been working well at home and been freshened up with a small break - should have definite e/w claims.

Capla Spirit 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
15:00, Bath

Won well last time out at Wolverhampton - back on the turf here and up 6lbs for that, but a nice draw in 2 helps and will be fine on the ground here. Tyler, who can claim 7lbs again, remains in the saddle and the horse seems to have come out of that last race well. Tiny bit more needed as up in grade here, but probably my best chance on the day.

Phoebus Lescribaa 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
14:50, Uttoxeter

Phoebus is well, but has a tough task on his hands today. Tongue-tie is on for the first time to see if that helps a bit - overall he's a horse that needs to have things go his way, and if that should happen he could still have small placed chances at a fair price.

Speedy Buck 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
14:50, Uttoxeter

Former winning Pointer but had a few issues since running under rules - having a few wind operations. First run back since October so likely to improve a lot for this, but nice to get going with him on the track again.

Albatross Reach 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
14:40, Lingfield Park

Third career run here today so will get a handicap mark after this and will be seen in a better light once into those races.

Vue Cavaliere    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Suzy to hit the frame.


Wed 2nd Sep 2020
14:20, Uttoxeter

In good form and is in a much better grade for her as she was contesting much stronger races last year and kept bumping into a few improvers. At her best on a sound surface - fit too and is expected to go well here. Each-way.

Voila Eric 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
13:50, Uttoxeter

Was in the process of running a big race last time out at Newcastle when falling - that came back in January so has had plenty of time to get over that and schooled well since. Might have liked slightly softer ground, but should be okay in conditions and has run well off a break in the past. Well at home and if jumping holds up then could outrun his odds.

Peur De Rien    WINNER! winner

Ran on really well to win this for the Oliver Sherwood yard.


Wed 2nd Sep 2020
13:50, Uttoxeter

This will be his first run over fences and his second race since a major wind operation. He’s a stunning looking horse who has been disappointing so far in his races but he was found to have a serious wind issue and due to ground he has only had one outing since so it’s impossible to know how successful it has been. As you know it sometimes takes horses a couple of runs to gain confidence and realise they can breathe properly again. We decided to send Roger chasing because his schooling has always been very good at home and if he can enjoys fences he will find it easier on his wind than hurdling. Over hurdles horses tend to go a good gallop and quicken off it and there isn’t so much emphasis on the jumping whereas chasing is much more about rhythm. Roger is a kind horse at home, he’s generally good to ride but he can be easily wound up if something upsets him.

Smiths Cross    WINNER! winner

Nice return run from Scu's horse.


Wed 2nd Sep 2020
12:40, Uttoxeter

Another of ours today that is returning from a break - but the horse is well and we feel he'll be better for the wind surgery he had back in January as seemed to get tired in his last two races at the end of 2019. Returning here as a course winner at the track (NH Flat) and hoping to get his confidence back by switching back to hurdles. Looks a funny race as will probably rest between four horses - of which we are one - with the Fergal O'Brien runner the main danger. but we do get 6lbs from that horse so that gives us hope. Based on the lack of depth to the race, hopeful of hitting the frame at worse.

Maries Girl 
Wed 2nd Sep 2020
12:40, Uttoxeter

Nice filly, who is making her debut over hurdles today. So a clear round is the main priority. A stiff task with some nice novices on show, so she will be seen to better effect when handicapping.

Secret Court 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
19:30, Newton Abbot

Ideally would want to go a bit further in trip, but this is first time in a handicap. She ran very well last time, and could run into a place at a long price.

Fact of The Matter 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
17:30, Newton Abbot

Fact of the Matter is an old favourite of all of ours. He's been a legend down the years and has won twice at Cheltenham for us, most recently over the cross-country course there. He was 5th in the Belgium Grand National last season, and was set on touring the continent this summer in all of their cross country races, but Covid has put paid to that! In here over hurdles off a vastly reduced handicap mark, he'd have a good chance, although he is still a novice over hurdles and amazingly enough has never won over hurdles!

Caen Na Coille 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
16:50, Kempton Park

Clearly loves the AW and this is her trip - she is very consistent and is more than capable of winning off this mark. She will be thereabouts once again.

Bolt N Brown 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
16:35, Ripon

Sole career win to date has come over hurdles - and that came two runs back at Ludlow. Has run okay since on the flat over 1m4f but upping him to 2m here and we think it will suit. Dropped a pound too from last run and Tyler claims a further 7lbs so a lot better off at the weights too. Likes to race up with the pace and the eyesheilds are also on for the first time today to help him focus. Decent each-way chance with the race looking to rest between five of us and - if pushed - looks my slightly better chance on the day.

Redbridge Gold    WINNER! winner

Went down by just a neck here, but a solid run still.


Tue 1st Sep 2020
16:25, Newton Abbot

Redbridge Gold won an Irish point before winning a bumper on good ground. Some of her bumper form looks pretty strong. Last season was a bit of a right off as she picked up an injury on her hurdling debut in the autumn and then hated the heavy ground in the winter. She's a nice mare and will be winning races over hurdles prior to going chasing, however we seem to have been dropped in the hottest of these two divisions and might be vulnerable to a horse off the flat here.

Corazon Espinado 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
15:45, Kempton Park

Not been at his best so far this Summer but well treated on his best form now. Probably better on left-handed tracks but has run well here before (CD winner) and seems in good shape so no surprise to see him bounce back.

Holiday Magic 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
15:15, Kempton Park

CD winner here at the track and in good order at home, but the killer here is the draw (11). Going to be very tough from there so really can just ride the horse for luck and with 13 runners in the race that makes life even harder!

Twentysharesofgrey    WINNER! winner

Another solid race from Simon's horse.


Tue 1st Sep 2020
14:45, Kempton Park

Ran in to one last start (2nd) here when drawn wide (9). Not much better today and will need luck in-running re the draw, but seems in good form and should be involved if things fall right for her with the in-form Hollie Doyle booked to ride.

Olivers Pursuit 
Tue 1st Sep 2020
13:30, Ripon

Into a Selling Stakes after glimmers of form in handicaps from opening 9 runs. Should find this easier and we head here at one of the top three rated in the field and is another we are legging up Tyler Heard to claim 7lbs. Bit to prove over this longer 1m2f trip - has tried it once, but that came off a break. Weights suggest Chichloui might be the one to beat for us, but hopeful of a nice run and should not be far away.

Voice Of Calm 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
18:55, Sandown

Won well at Lingfield two runs back but flopped at Newbury last time. The step back up in trip will help but needs to bounce back from that run and probably improve a bit too against some lesser exposed sorts.

Vulcan    WINNER! winner

Another top effort from Harry's horse.


Mon 31st Aug 2020
17:50, Sandown

Going the right way and ran well to be dead-heated second at Newbury last time out - they pulled clear of the rest of the field so the form okay and handled the softer ground that day well. Dylan rides again, but can claim 3lbs this time so that's another obvious help. Each-way chance in an open race.

Dream Chaser 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
16:45, Sandown

William Buick a bonus in the saddle - first run in a handicap here today so hopeful that will help, but ran much better to be 2nd last time at Lingfield when stepped up to this 7f trip. First run on the turf today too but the track will be fine. Small e/w chance.

Night Eagle 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
16:10, Sandown

Nice colt, but very much 'first day at school' today so will learn a lot from this.

Alex Gracie 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
15:50, Southwell

10 race maiden but has run okay at the track in the past. Can ignore the last run at Catterick as stumbled at the start and lost all chance. Cheekpieces are on for the first time today to try and help. More needed but the experienced Graham Lee rides now so hoping that improves her.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
15:50, Southwell

Lightly-raced with only five career runs - first run at the track but should suit and ran much better last time at Catterick, when a close-up fourth. Rated 4lbs lower on the AW helps and another of ours today that Jonathan Fisher rides and claims 5lbs. Each-way. 

Gently Spoken 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
15:15, Southwell

First run for us after coming from the Martyn Meade camp. Only had two previous runs so should have more to come, but we'll find out more today and that will give us more knowledge going forward.

Shackabooah 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
15:15, Southwell

Third runner in the race for us and if pushed probably our better chance - mainly due to the fact he's already had two fair runs. Nice third at Musselburgh last time out and that effort was even better than it looked as the horse hung in the early stages - but stayed on well. Think he'll like the track and surface and could nick a place with the front two in the betting the obvious ones.

May The Sixth    WINNER! winner

No chance with the front two, but stayed on well to take third on debut.


Mon 31st Aug 2020
15:15, Southwell

Nice filly that makes her debut here today - has been doing well at home and we feel the track will suit so looking forward to a nice run. Goes without saying whatever happens here will improve for the run and experience though.

Samovar 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
14:40, Southwell

Another runner in the race for us and another that acts well on the track. Is better for a recent run at Wolverhampton after a 5 month break, while his very consistent form here at Southwell would give him each-way claims too. Luke Morris knows the horse well too and is yet to finish out of the top three on him from 5 rides so that gives us hope too.

Moveonup 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
14:40, Southwell

CD winner here and returned with a run down the field at Salisbury last time out. Will be better for that, but still feel the horse isn't quite himself at the moment and might just need another run or two. Tyler's 7lb claim a help though and overall form at the track reads well 3-3-1-3-2-2-4, so that could spark him back to life.

Crosse Fire 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
14:40, Southwell

Won this race 12 months ago so can't be ruled out off the same mark and has won off higher in the past too. Fit and well from recent runs but the return to Southwell is a big plus so expect a much better run. Each-way claims in a very open race.

Dark Shot    WINNER! winner

Nice to see Scott's Dark Shot back to winning form.


Mon 31st Aug 2020
14:40, Southwell

Third runner in the race for us - probably not the force of old and has dropped down the handicap to a mark of 69 after being rated as high as 90 in the past. Third in this race last year off a mark 18lbs higher so based on that is another that's hard to rule out. Hard to win with though - just 2 career wins from 49 runs - and needs to put some average efforts behind him - but dropping mark gives us a squeak.

Limerick Lord 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
14:10, Southwell

Only went to Bath last time as a warm-up run for today and ended up winning! So he is well and back at his favourite surface here so should be competitive in a weak-looking race. Tyler Heard won on him last time out and takes off a handy 7lbs.

Professor Galant 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
13:10, Southwell

Third run so will get a mark after this - has progressed with each outing though and wasn't beaten far at Bath last time out. Tyler's claim a help and if taking to the surface then could easily run into a place.

Arfinn Rose 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
13:10, Southwell

Work in progress - only second career run after running down the field on debut at Musselburgh. We feel the track will suit but really just be happy with a step forward here.

Cape Greco 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
12:00, Southwell

CD winner here so the track and surface is fine. Dropped in grade from last run but as a result does carry top-weight here so that would be the worry. Tyler can claim 7lbs though so that helps and should run his race, but just wonder if the big weight will get the better of him.

Break The Silence 
Mon 31st Aug 2020
12:00, Southwell

No great shakes the last twice but returns to Southwell - a track we know he loves. He's actually won this race 12 months ago too and another bold bid on the cards. Is however, rated 11lbs higher this year after progressing through last season. Jonathan Fisher knows the horse well and won on in this race last year too - he can claim a handy 5lbs. Goes without saying more on than 12 months ago but is a better horse and his record and liking for the fibresand must give him a decent e/w chance in an open race.

Rafiot    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gary Moore.


Sun 30th Aug 2020
17:20, Goodwood

RAFIOT ran well in an amateur race at Salisbury recently with Ellie Vaughan having her first ride. Hoping the race will have been of benefit to both horse and jockey and if all goes to plan I expect to see RAFIOT with strong each-way chance today.

Thermal    WINNER! winner

A nice 1-2 in the race for Gary Moore.


Sun 30th Aug 2020
17:20, Goodwood

THERMAL ran a better race recently at Kempton finishing well after struggling to go with the early pace. This softer ground just may be to her liking and if so she could be there at the finish.

Global Hope 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
17:10, Yarmouth

CD winner here so no track issues - only 2lbs higher than last win but feel he's in the handicapper's grip at the moment - but Tyler Heard booked to ride and he takes off a handy 7lbs so that brings him more into it. However, like our other runner today the ground is a worry. Yet to race on anything this soft and we are not sure that will really suit.

Stormingin    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gary's horse.


Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:45, Goodwood

STORMINGIN does not get his head in front very often but he does act on soft going. Hopefully today STORMINGIN will put this right as he is in great form at home and this looks to be a real opportunity for him.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:45, Goodwood

The Game Is On    WINNER! winner

Wow - cracking 50/1 winner for Simon Dow!


Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:45, Goodwood

Looks a good type for these sort of races and was bought for this job. No form on soft but he is a great type and sure to go well for his enthusiastic team.

First Prophet 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:35, Yarmouth

Is slowly getting things back on track after an impressive debut. He should love Yarmouth and 6f is the right trip for him. The only question mark is the ground, but he's won on good-to-soft in the past and all the other horses in the race have big question marks over the underfoot conditions.

Nightswimming 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:10, Goodwood

NIGHTSWIMMING was well beaten on her racecourse debut but I do think she did come on for the run. Best-watched until she qualifies for a handicap and if she copes well enough with this slower ground I will be pleased if she finishes with the pack.

Silver Cliffs 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:00, Yarmouth

Silver Cliffs possibly found the going rather too lively last time out. I hope the ground is not going to be the other extreme today but with give in the ground and dropped into a lower grade race I think Silver Cliffs has solid each-way claims today.

Divine Queen    WINNER! winner

Nice each-way return for Julia's horse.


Sun 30th Aug 2020
16:00, Yarmouth

Is a lovely Kingman filly, who we hope is now well-handicapped. She has been wanting this ground so we hope she will get competitive in this weak race.

Global Esteem    WINNER! winner

Looks a horse to follow from the Gay Kelleway yard.


Sun 30th Aug 2020
15:25, Yarmouth

Very good horse that is improving with every run. Only had four career starts and returned with a solid second at Sandown last month. We feel the step up from 7f to 1m will be in his favour and certainly a horse to follow. Only niggle is the horse is running on ground this soft for the first time and I'm not sure that's going to be ideal for him.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
15:25, Yarmouth

Loves it here at Yarmouth - he had no run last time when stumbling coming out the stalls on last run. He will love the ground and Sean Kirrane back riding is a plus having previously won on him. Good each-way chance here today.

Lemon Song 
Sun 30th Aug 2020
13:15, Goodwood

The horse is into a Selling Stakes race here so should be a bit more competitive, but the ratings suggest we've still a bit to find with 2 or 3 of the others. First run on the turf too, but overall needs to improve on what we've seen on the track to date.

Mayfair Pompette    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to nab third.


Sat 29th Aug 2020
19:15, Redcar

Mayfair Pompette has been one of my biggest disappointments this year as she has always been a favourite of mine. Last time out was a non-event as she got trapped far too far back. I am hoping a return to turf and the 10 furlongs will be the key. Can't rule out but be delighted with an improved run here and go from there.

Habanero Star 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
17:15, Goodwood

The horse is still learning but ran a fair race first time in a handicap last time at Wolverhampton (6th of 12). The softer ground a bit of an unknown, but stays further than this 6f trip so that stamina will be a big help in conditions - if acts on the ground we think the horse will run a much improved race. Selema takes off a handy 7lbs too and we are dropped 2lbs from last time. Overall feel another step forward is on the cards and even though realistically likely to find a few too good we are hopeful of a step forward.

Winter Snowdrop 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
17:00, Windsor

Junkanoo 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
16:45, Goodwood

Top winner at the track here last time out and has come out of that race well - Only up 4lbs and that looks fair enough, while the slight drop in trip should be fine. Softer ground here too, but has acted well with give and with only six career outings should have more in the locker. We think he'll go close here today. Daivd Egan, who was on last time too, remains in the saddle.

Lord Clenaghcastle 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
16:45, Goodwood

Second runner in the race for us and clearly our second string. Well down the field last Saturday at Sandown and based on that run a lot more needed off only a 2lb lower mark.

Mr Chua 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
16:10, Goodwood

Starter For Ten 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
16:05, Redcar

Starter For Ten made a pleasing debut for my yard last time out despite not enjoying the track. I think the drop back to 6 will really suit him and he will love the soft ground. He is well drawn too (1) and in another open affair must have nice e/w claims.

Beat The Breeze 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
15:50, Windsor

Been waiting for some soft ground and should go well enough on first start since castration. This is a grade higher than his comfort zone but extreme conditions could see him take a hand if he is fit enough

Mukha Magic 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
15:20, Newmarket

Been running well in some decent staying handicaps this season - without winning. Softer ground today will be to his liking and expected to run his race again. But really we feel the horse is badly handicapped at the moment and in another hot race is likely to find a few too good.

King Ottokar 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
15:15, Windsor

King Ottokar is very talented but has had a disappointing season so far. However, he has been gelded and the application of a visor seems to have really woken him up. His work has been back to his best. He will run very well today.

Beauty Choice 
Sat 29th Aug 2020
13:05, Windsor

Beauty Choice is a different horse on soft ground hence he disappointed last time out at Doncaster. Conditions should suit perfectly today and he will love the track. Looks an open race on paper so must have a fair e/w chance. Martin Harley rides.

Olivia Brend    WINNER! winner

Good run from Gay's horse in France.


Sat 29th Aug 2020
11:15, Deauville

Running in France today in a 6f Claimer - has travelled over well and ran well last time out at Salisbury when a fair 3rd over 7f. Drop to 6f fine, but clearly stays further so if able to keep in touch that will be a plus in the closing stages - not without each-way clams. Stepane Pasquier rides.

Zephyrina 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
19:00, Newmarket

Has not really fulfilled the promise she showed last year - and we were 4 3/4 lengths behind Morrooj over 1m last time (we meet that horse again, but we are 8lbs better off). We are also hoping the return to 1m2f here today will be a plus and that can spark a return to form.

Filles De Fleur 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
19:00, Newmarket

Be interesting to see how FILLES DE FLEUR performs on turf today as I am hoping that rain softened ground may bring about improvement to her turf form. Probably best-watched though, but she ran a respectable enough race recently on the all weather to suggest she can improve here and one to note going forward.

Mrs Meader    WINNER! winner

Julia was spot-on here.


Fri 28th Aug 2020
19:00, Newmarket

Is a full sister to Gas Monkey. He didn't show any form until he was a 4 year-old - this is her first run for us too and she looks to be on a good handicap mark - any rain will help. She will, however, improve on what she does here and is well worth following going forward - but we still feel she will outrun her odds here today.

Engrave 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
18:30, Newmarket

Is well suited by 1m2f on a galloping track on soft ground. She seems well-handicapped now too and Tyler Heard takes off a handy 7lbs. She should have an each-way chance at a good price.

Letscrackon 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
16:15, Newmarket

Running after a break - probably best watched on this occasion.

Little Awkward 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
15:50, Fontwell Park

Little Awkward is a good looking grey gelding by Monmatre. I bought him in Ireland at Goffs Land Rover sale as a 3yo and had racing not been suspended in March he would have run in a bumper in the spring. He goes nicely enough at home, he’s a good moving horse and because of his colour he catches the eye. As with all of my bumper horses he is not trained to the minute, he knows his job but he will improve. I never like my youngsters to have hard races at the beginning of their careers, if they are looked after and enjoy the whole experience it does wonders for their confidence and future racing life.

Fix Bayonets 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
15:50, Fontwell Park

First run today but he has been going well at home but this is truly a difficult race to assess today so I am just hoping for a decent run from FIX BAYONETS.

Beat The Judge 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
15:15, Fontwell Park

In good form as we saw when beating ASHUTOR at Newton Abbott last month. Clearly ASHUTOR now meets BEAT THE JUDGE off a more favourable mark but BEAT THE JUDGE met the last wrong that day so if he can make amends for that today I am hoping he can beat ASHUTOR again. It will be a close match I suspect.

Relativity 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
15:00, Goodwood

Donald Llewellyn 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
15:00, Goodwood

DONALD LLEWELLYN has failed to land a blow in three runs but makes his handicap debut today. He was staying on for 6th behind Coltrane last month so off this mark could be interesting today. I hope to see DONALD LLEWELLYN be close-up at the finish.

Monkey Puzzle    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win from Oliver's staying chaser.


Fri 28th Aug 2020
14:15, Fontwell Park

Monkey Puzzle is a horse that wants decent ground so last winter was a nightmare for him, he had wind surgery in December after a poor show at Taunton on his only chase run and he was being readied for a spring campaign when racing was halted. He enjoys his schooling and he has always jumped well at home, he’s not flashy in his work but he’s done plenty so he should be fit enough if good enough. He is a sweet horse but he’s a bit of a goon at home and he likes to act the fool, he’s generally lazy in his work. Looks to have Flying Verse and Never Learn to beat.

Compadre 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

In good form at the moment after winning well at Uttoxeter last time out over fences. Back over hurdles here and returns on an 8lb lower rating than over fences so looking well-treated. A couple of dark horses in the race but we feel he's still very much the one to beat.

Felix Dautry 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

Felix is a lightly raced 6yo who has shown glimmers of ability but his jumping can occasionally let him down. He jumps perfectly well at home but he can lack concentration on a racecourse. He is a bit of a playboy and I’m hoping he has grown up a bit now and he can finally knuckle down to the job of being a racehorse.

King Cool    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Gary and a return to form from King Cool.


Fri 28th Aug 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

KING COOL is not improving and has struggled to win for a while but was runner up three times last season. KING COOL has come down in the handicap, is a course winner and fitness should not be an issue so I am hoping KING COOL can run into a place today.

Seaborn    WINNER! winner

Another top win for this improving hurdler.


Fri 28th Aug 2020
12:35, Fontwell Park

SEABORN was disappointing at Stratford in a messy race first time out for me but put things right with a decent win next time out. Handicapper took a dim view and SEABORN has gone up a whopping 13 pounds since then. Decent claimer on board today so that will help. Difficult with two runners in the race but they both have to beat FIRST MAN who is on what is likely to be softer going than anticipated and is well handicapped for today.

Fume 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
12:35, Fontwell Park

Quloob    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Gary's horse.


Fri 28th Aug 2020
12:00, Fontwell Park

QULOOB has run a couple of times on the flat recently and placed in good company so fitness is not an issue today. I should think ground conditions may be softer than expected, but I think QULOOB has decent claims today.

Bringthehousedown 
Fri 28th Aug 2020
12:00, Fontwell Park

Bringthehousedown or Joey as he is known, arrived with us last winter thanks to Ron Hodges who recommended us because of our equine pool. Joey has big flat feet so therefore he has had plenty of annoying issues with bruising etc. He spends a lot of time swimming and Ben, my farrier, is his constant companion. He is a big, strong horse who won on the flat In Ireland, although how he even went into the stalls is beyond me. He is a good workhorse at home, he’s not flash but he’s very honest, you can’t help but like his attitude.

Cafe Milano 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
18:00, Lingfield Park

Looked as if he was going to win back in the Spring and too wide when tried here over 12f last time. Better drawn here (5), gelded and top rider booked (Silvestre de Sousa) so could go well at a big price against some less exposed rivals.

Platinum Prince    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gary - easy winner at 5/1!


Thu 27th Aug 2020
17:25, Lingfield Park

Been working well at home. Hopefully the drop back in distance (1m from 1m2f) will suit and see the horse run well. Hector Crouch rides and we've also been dropped 2lbs from the last run. Competitive, but looks to have decent claims.

Sociologist 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
17:05, Beverley

Back in calmer waters today after running in a Class 3 at Chester last time and getting a bit out-classed in the end. Drop back in trip will help too as more actual racing weight to carry in this lower grade. Likes to race up with the pace so that will be the plan again here. Is, however, rated 7lbs higher than his last win (Jul 20) so does need to eke out a bit more, but doesn't mind the softer ground and has also run well here at the track before. Place claims.

The Warrior 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
16:55, Lingfield Park

CD winner here that is more than capable in a race like this on his day. As I've said many times too though, he's also a bit of a quirky customer so can have is own ideas - if in the mood would have a big chance as also back down to last winning mark. Danny Muscutt back riding him too and has won on him twice before over this course and distance. Draw 7 is okay as like to come late anyway - each-way chance.

Sazerak    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Jamie's horse - one to note.


Thu 27th Aug 2020
16:30, Sedgefield

Sazerak wasn’t beaten far on debut last season on soft ground. This better ground should be more suitable and the Penny seems to have dropped at home. She’d have every chance here.

Chica Del Dia 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
15:45, Chelmsford

Not shown anything in three starts but goes well and will be better up to this distance. Dam is yet to breed a winner but has had few chances and this one is sure to find a race on her homework. Outside draw (10) no help so going to be tricky from there, but very weak race gives us a chance of a better showing - Lively outsider.

Canton Prince 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
14:50, Sedgefield

The horses returned earlier in the week to run well - and better than I expected if I'm honest - so that's a plus. Canton Prince will be better for his recent run at Southwell after getting tired in the closing stages. We've been dropped a few pounds for that and Richard Johnson taking over an obvious plus. Longer trip won't be an issue either and acts on most ground should any more rain come. Recent winners - Arthur's Sixpence and Kitty's Light the likely winners though, but certainly hoping for an improved run from last time and small e/w claims.

Roundabout Magic 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
14:10, Chelmsford

Multiple winner but saves his best for Lingfield though has run well here. Good draw (1) though and regular top rider booked (Tom Marquand), so sure to be thereabouts if the race goes right for him.

Timoshenko 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
13:20, Sedgefield

Timoshenko won well on his hurdling debut but disappointed last time under a penalty - he got very worked up and blew his mind, so never jumped well but was still only beaten 7 lengths. This doesn’t look the strongest race and looks to only have one to beat on paper. This step up in trip promises to help and providing he keeps his mind, he should run well.

Fortunate Fred 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
12:50, Sedgefield

Fortunate Fred was placed in a couple of bumpers last season, showing a pretty good level of ability. He jumps well, will improve for better ground, and will stay well. This looks the warmer division, but both of the main dangers carry a penalty, so we shouldn’t be too far away.

Redbridge Gold 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
12:50, Sedgefield

Blue Beret 
Thu 27th Aug 2020
12:40, Chelmsford

Green on debut but stayed on well enough and seems to have come out of it quite well. Needs to take another step forward but could be going the right way and no surprise to see her involved under a new rider (Luke Morris).

King Athelstan    WINNER! winner

Close-up third and based on that run should be winning in a similar grade soon.


Wed 26th Aug 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

A strong chance here today. Well at home and much better for a return run here at the start of the month - well drawn (1) and the race should suit. Hector Crouch rides and knows the horse very well. 

Light of Air 
Wed 26th Aug 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

Second runner in this race for us. Disappointing latest so needs to bounce back on that. Inexperienced rider and a bit to prove - however, is capable on his best form.

Captain Haddock    WINNER! winner

Improved run from Harry's horse on only it's second run.


Wed 26th Aug 2020
16:30, Lingfield Park

Lovely debut run when fourth (of 12) at Kempton in the AW. Running over a similar trip here and we've given him a lot of time to get over that run. Has progressed at home again and looking forward to getting him out again. With the expected improvement no reason why he shouldn't have e/w claims here - with John Locke and Ocean Wind looking the clear dangers on what we've seen on the track so far.

Albatross Reach 
Wed 26th Aug 2020
16:30, Lingfield Park

Down the field on debut at Bath over a mile, but we feel the step up in trip here will suit as looked a bit outpaced that day. Having said that, it's still a bit of a fact-finding mission re the trip and overall likely to need more races, experience and a handicap mark to be seen in a better light.

Unlucky last time - but ran on well in the end when getting a clearer run. The trip is a bit sharp as running over 1m2f again, but has won over this distance and at the course. Louis rides and claims 7lbs again - well at home and should still go well in a bad race.

Spanish Mane 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
19:00, Yarmouth

Loves it here at Yarmouth - she is still well-handicapped and Tyler Heard, who has been going very well for us recently, takes off a handy 7lbs. She wouldn't want the ground to go too soft - so if conditions are right will be thereabouts again.

Shanachloeleah 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
19:00, Yarmouth

A horse owned by my head lad. However, she's not set the world alight as yet but has only had three runs. First time into a handicap here today will help but still needs to improve a lot from her last outing and from what we are seeing at home.

One Of The Girls 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
18:30, Yarmouth

Is having her second run in a tough race - she will be more competitive once she has a handicap mark though.

Aiguillette    WINNER! winner

Ran a much better race to take second.


Tue 25th Aug 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

Drawn 12 and that might not be a bad thing here as likely to come over this side. Horse blew up a bit last time at Wolverhampton as that came off a 285 day break, but is much better for it. Poor race gives us a chance too and hopeful of a better each-way run here, with the Appleby horse probably the one to beat.

Approve The Dream 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

Will only run if the rain comes - he has not been letting himself down on the firm ground recently. He has the ability and is well-handicapped so we will have to see what the weather does.

Ubla 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

Into a Classified Stakes race and must have a chance in what looks a very average race. Likes the track and is a CD winner here, while two recent runs at Kempton and Yarmouth have blown away the cobwebs. Feel we've probably got the Appleby horse to beat, but think we've got a great chance and should go close.

Le Boulevardier 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
16:05, Bangor

Le Boulevardier has run well in both his previous starts in bumpers finishing third and second respectively - so should have a good chance today. Both of those races were won by horses trained by Fergal O’Brien and they produced professional performances whereas Le Boulevardier still looked a bit green and gawky - he'd have learned a lot from those outings. Le Boulevardier is a cheeky horse at home, he’s always looking around and acting Jack the lad....there’s no harm in him though.

Some Chaos 
Tue 25th Aug 2020
12:00, Bangor

Returns from around 7 months off but is well at home and no stranger to going well off a break in the past. Likes the track - is a course winner here - and returns over hurdles as still a novice over the smaller obstacles. Rain is not ideal and guess it's just who handles the conditions the best as it looks as if it will be a negative for the others in the race too. However, first-time cheekpieces are on today to help him concentrate but if translating last seasons improved chase form to hurdles then must have a big chance.

Saigon Suzi 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
19:50, Bath

Improved with each start in novice company and will find this easier. Extra distance a plus too, just a slight concern that this comes a little quick after his last run, but it looked a good opportunity for the horse.

Lady Morpheus    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Mon 24th Aug 2020
19:20, Bath

In good form and won't mind the ground, but only niggle is the longer trip (1m2f) again here. Failed to see it out last time at Yarmouth, but a pound lower and Hector, who gets on well with the horse, is back in the saddle - so hoping those factors can see her more competive today.

Ragtime Sally 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
19:20, Bath

Down 2lbs from her last run at Lingfield - that came over a mile but we feel the step up to 1m2f here will suit at this tight track. We are also putting the first-time visor on today to keep her mind on the job. Still a bit to answer at the moment and more needed but still only had 6 career runs so should be more to come. Small e/w if the visor and longer trip help.

Salsa Dip 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
19:20, Bath

Should find the switch to handicap company means he can be more involved. The step up in distance should also suit.

Blue Eagle 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
18:50, Bath

Only second career run so still learning about the game. Wasn't the best away last time so lost all chance there at Chelmsford. Switch to the turf will suit, but one for the future really so just be happy with an improved effort. The Stoute horse looks to hold the best form.

Secret Art 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
17:15, Bath

Not shown much so far this year from three runs - as a result is starting to look well-handicapped off 67 as rated in the 80's last year. But not getting any younger at 10, so this is probably his level these days. Hollie Doyle rides and the softer ground will certainly be more to his liking than recent runs. Bit to answer and the company here could mean she finds a few too good, but if finding some old form could be dangerous of this mark. Small e/w, but the Hugo Palmer horse looks the obvious one.

Jungle Boogaloo 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
16:40, Bath

Better run last time when fourth at Lingfield and closely-matched with Emerald Fox, who was second that last day. Hopefully she can improve on that which will surely give her every chance. Jason Watson, who rode last time, remains in the saddle. 

Tight Call    WINNER! winner

A slightly suprising winner, but did it well and looks a horse to follow. 


Mon 24th Aug 2020
14:50, Southwell

Another of ours today returning from a break after last seen falling at Ludlow back in Feb. Has done well at home since and will be much more at home on this good ground. Richard Johnston rides and he's 2-from-2 on the horse so that gives us a boost too. Looks competitive between about 7 of the 10 runners, but with the lay-off we expect the horse to improve for this, but certainly one to look for after this.

Twasnt The Plan 
Mon 24th Aug 2020
14:20, Southwell

Back from a break here after a busy time of it between Sept and Jan. Still a horse that's yet to win a race from 14 runs and having been placed in the top three 9 times is a horse that deserves to get his head in front - been second 4 times from his 8 runs over fences too. Richard Johnson a plus in the saddle and looking not too badly treated off a mark of 108 - a career low. Good ground is fine and the track should suit. Should run his race, but after around 6 months off can be expected to come on for this and one to watch after this - Lough Har and Lock's Corner look the obvious ones.

Mukha Magic 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
17:20, Sandown

Has improved a lot this season and ran a cracker at Royal Ascot two runs ago in the Queen Alexanrdra (3rd). That came over 2m5f so stays well and we'll be hoping to make good use of that stamina over this shorter 1m6f trip. But the handicapper did out us up after that Ascot run and worth noting we are now 13lbs higher than last win (Southwell). Has certainly improved since then though, but looks a hot contest so would just be delighted with a solid run and likely to find a few too good.

Olivers Pursuit 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
16:40, Wolverhampton

Might be a bit more exposed than the Hills runner - Smart Connection - but hoping our experience will help. She's yet to win from 4 runs, but took a big step forward last time when a close fourth here at the track. Clearly liked it here and only 2lbs higher must give her a good e/w chance. Also another runner we are putting 7lb claimer - Tyler Heard - on today so is actually 5lbs better of than her last outing. Only negative was that she was a bit slow away last time, so if sorting that out today should hopefully not be far away. Each-way.

Parkers Boy 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
16:40, Wolverhampton

Lot more needed on what we've seen in last two runs at Leicester - on a plus, has run okay at the track before so the return to the AW will help, but hard to get too excited until we see more on the track.

Onassis 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
15:05, Sandown

Has been a star this year - winning at Royal Ascot and winning impressively in France. This is a step up in grade today and an extremely tough race but she is improving rapidly. Ground should be fine and she will be ridden to get the trip.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this month.


Sun 23rd Aug 2020
14:25, Wolverhampton

Looks one of my better chances on the day - nice draw in 4 will help and is also dropped in grade here into a Class 6. 9lbs better off than last run too as 2lbs lower and also we've the 7lb claimer - Tyler Heard - riding today. Fear the Easterby horse - Wade's Magic - but feel we come here with a decent chance too.

Northern Beau 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
14:15, Cartmel

Did well last season and overall record over fences is good with 12 runs and 4 wins (8 top three finishes). Competitive race for the track but a nice prize on offer so this race has been a target. First run at the track but no reason why it won't suit as likes to race up with the pace and, therefore, the tight track should play to her strengths. Well at home too and has run well fresh in the past - only 3lbs higher than that Cheltenham win last term. Looking forward to a good run.

Krystallite 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
13:55, Wolverhampton

Fluffed the start last time so had an excuse but now 13 runs without a win so a bit to answer at the moment. As a result is dropping down the ratings and into a poor Classified race here - based on that can't totally rule out at a track she likes and we are one of just two proven CD winners in the field. Jonathan Fisher also helps by taking off 5lbs so if getting away from the gates better then not without e/w claims, but does need to put some average efforts behind her.

Gypsy Boy 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
13:25, Sandown

Only second career run - down the field on debut here, so at least has some track experience. Learned a lot form that run and will improve for it, while the step up to 7f (from 5f) will be more up his street. But very much one for the future and likely to be better once getting a mark in what looks a decent race for the grade.

Mustang Alpha 
Sun 23rd Aug 2020
12:45, Cartmel

Is a lovely horse. He won his Point in Ireland on spring ground and so it wasn't surprising he didn't handle the deep winter ground, but he ran well when third on good-to-soft at Huntingdon on hurdling debut. He's been working well at home after a wind op and he is capable if winning a novice hurdle before progressing on. This looks a nice opportunity with the main danger carrying a penalty.

Gas Monkey    WINNER! winner

Another solid run from Julia's horse.


Sat 22nd Aug 2020
17:00, Sandown

Is turning out quickly for him but seems to have come out of that recent race last Saturday well. He has recent CD form here and Tyler Heard being able to claim a handy 7lbs in this apprentice race is a big bonus. We did go up 3lbs for his last run, which was a bit harsh but hopeful he has a chance of going one better today.

Donnie Azoff 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
16:55, Uttoxeter

Was second on his racecourse debut at Southwell last month, when looking very green as he'd not been working on grass and nor had he been away for a gallop due to the pandemic. He will have improved a ton for that run and he is fit and well. The form of that race has worked out well and he should have every chance of going one better today. There are a few newcomers who could be anything and Nicky's is favourite - but I'd say our chaps form is better and he looks a good price as a result.

Jeremiah 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
15:40, York

Was completely unsuited by the slow pace last time out and I am not sure he enjoyed the rattling quick ground. Conditions today are perfect, but the big question mark is the trip. He finished second on bottomless ground over 14.5f as a 3 year-old and this race won't be as testing so I'm holding out that he will stay.

Pride Of America 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
15:15, Sandown

Nice horse that is going the right way - was 6th in the Lingfield Derby Trial back in June and improved in that with a fine second in a good race in France last time out. Has had time to get over that race and into a handicap for the first time. Trip, ground and the stiff finish here will suit and should have more to come. Is, however, a very open race with many chances - but hopeful of a nice run and not without small e/w chances.

Lord Clenaghcastle 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
14:40, Sandown Park

A horse that's had a few issues and has been off the track since Nov 18 as a result. With that in mind, will very much need the run today to blow away the cobwebs, but hopefully we can get a clear run with the horse after this outing.

Golden Force 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
14:40, Sandown

Is in rude health at the moment - winning his last two. Sandown should suit his running style and the mile is perfect. Small question mark over the ground, but I don't see that being a problem. Up another 6lbs for his last win, but in current form must have nice e/w claims in a very competitive contest.

Plenty Of Butty 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
14:10, Uttoxeter

Was starting to get the hang of things a bit last season - putting one or two good performances in. Still a long way off winning though and will need to see a lot more before getting too carried away with him. Trip and ground are fine though, but best-watched until he's able to show more.

Casa Loupi  
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
14:05, Sandown Park

Fourth run and first time in a handicap here today so that will help. We feel he'll improve for the step up in trip, but is also returning from a 269-day break so will certainly improve for this - very small each-way claims at best.

Seneca Chief 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
13:30, Sandown

Won well over course and distance three weeks ago - tackles better company as a result this time. Going easier than what he has encountered previously, so he has a couple of questions to answer. He has been progressive all summer so hopefully he can answer them.

Secret Court 
Sat 22nd Aug 2020
12:30, Uttoxeter

Will certainly come on for her run last time, but needs a mark to be seen at her best, which she'll get after today's run.

Atailof Two Cities 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
20:35, Wolverhampton

Is ready for a step up in trip and is well-drawn. She still has a lot to learn but is definitely ahead of her mark and should be competitive today.

Chamomile

2-from-2 since joining us - switches to the AW for the first time today but shouldn't be an issue as she trains on it at home. Should still be very competitive at this level.

Riviera Belle 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
19:35, Wolverhampton

Has been working well at home and seems to be in good form. She is much better on the AW and didn't get home last time out. Conditions will suit her much better today.

Between The Waters 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
19:25, Newton Abbot

Between the Waters has won three handicap chases and will win again, but the handicapper put him up and having run some solid races, he just couldn't win off those marks. He's drifting back to a realistic mark but now needs his confidence restoring. He'll have his day again before long.

Lady Marwah 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
17:55, Newton Abbot

Dropped 8lbs from her last run - after which she ran well for much of the way only to tire in the closing stages - but worth noting that came back in June 19. Had a few issues since - hence the long lay-off so likely to improve for this no matter what. But in good form at home and in a race that looks to lack depth could sneak a place. The Fergal O'Brien runner - Saintbury Lady - looks the one to beat.

Floral Bouquet 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
17:25, Newton Abbot

Floral Bouquet has been waiting for summer ground for a while, and showed her capabilities when 2nd off 110 last time out. Unfortunately, a last flight blunder cost her the race and she races off a 3lbs higher mark here as a result.  So long as the rain doesn't set in, then she should run her race again and hopefully be there with every chance.

Pacify 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:55, Newton Abbot

Pacify won 5 of his 7 novice hurdles starts last season and looked very useful. He was only beaten by the Supreme Novice winner and when 2nd in a Grade 2. He was 2nd on his chasing debut when he jumped well but looked a bit rusty. He should strip fitter for that run and this step up in trip promises to help. This looks a competitive race, but his class should mean he's not too far away.

Paseo 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:55, Newton Abbot

Paseo was consistent last winter in his first few runs over hurdles before the weather went against him. Because of the endless winter we endured we decided to give him a couple of runs on the all weather, he ran ok first time out but his form became regressive and it continued to be so on the turf this season. Paseo ran well last time out though in a very competitive handicap hurdle at Southwell so that was encouraging. He ended up making the running, which with hindsight I don’t think suited him and he dropped away fairly tamely in the straight... he ran ok. Paseo is pretty cute and he will probably need headgear at some stage to concentrate his mind but he does love his jumping and that does bring out the best in him. He has schooled very well over fences, for this debut today, so hopefully fences are what he’s been waiting for. Hopefully will be fitter than some after his recent runs and if jumping holds up e/w chance, but just be delighted with a clear/solid round to give him confidence over fences going forward.
George Scott 
Fri 21st Aug 2020

Is a nice 2 year-old who is ready for his first run. Trip and track should suit and I hope to see him make an encouraging debut.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:25, Salisbury

Has been in good form this year, without winning. He has been slipping down the handicap though and has a good draw here (11) and the ground will be ideal. Sam rides well and value for his 7lb claim too. He should have a good e/w chance.

Robero 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:25, Salisbury

Jockey has only had 6 career rides in public so will gain more experience here. The horse is well though and looking well-handicapped off this mark of 70 based on old form - especially as the jockey can claim 7lbs too. Certainly capable, but not really a betting proposition in a race like this with so many inexperienced riders in.

Craneur 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:25, Salisbury

We are delighted to have got top amateur - Simon Walker - for this race and that will sure give the horse every assistance from the saddle. Can ignore the last run as messed up the start but before that ran well at Kempton over 1m2f (6th of 13). Still to win a race from 13 runs so is looking a bit exposed but we feel the drop to 1m will help as just not quite been seeing out the 1m2f trip. Each-way chance in an open race.

Rafiot 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:25, Salisbury

Probably not a contest to get too involved in with a lot of inexperienced riders in. Our horse is well and will like conditions, while we feel he'll run a lot better than his price suggests. But still only small place claims at best based on recent runs and really just be happy for an improved showing and a nice ride for the young jockey.

High Renown 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:20, Newton Abbot

High Renown showed some form in bumpers on softer ground but looked the type to improve for better ground and a flight of hurdles.  He jumps nicely but was disappointing on hurdling debut when perhaps he went too fast early and blew up. He should have a future over hurdles, but doesn't look a star.

Sovereign Duke 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
16:20, Newton Abbot

Sovereign Duke was a useful horse on the flat, and has taken well to jumping.  We've tinkered with his wind to help him out, and a tongue tie has certainly helped him in his faster work too.  Providing the ground isn't too soft, and he takes to this discipline on the track then he should run a big race on his hurdling debut.

Moveonup 
Fri 21st Aug 2020
15:25, Salisbury

Both career wins have come on the AW so a bit to prove on the turf still. But has only had 6 runs on the grass. Will be suited by this return to 5f after tiring over 6f last time, but is also having his first run back since March so likely to improve for this.

Always tries and been placed in the top four in 13 of his last 14 races! Another solid run last time out at Ayr - just getting run out of it in the closing stages (2nd). Only 2lbs higher here but rise in grade means a lighter racing weight. However, also more needed in this better race but the step up to 2m for the first time can hopefully bring out more and his front-running style will be well-suited by this tight track. Likely to find a few too good, but still each-way claims.

Lady of Aran 
Thu 20th Aug 2020
16:50, York

Was disappointing at Yarmouth last time out but the ground was very very quick that day and I am not convinced she let herself down on it. Conditions will suit much better today and she was a very good apprentice on taking off 5lbs. Goes without saying a tough and competitive race, but hopefully she can bounce back to form.

Nice horse, but very much thrown in at the deepend today in this tough race. Ran a bit green last time out on his second run at Wolverhampton but that would have taught him more. The drop back to 6f for the first time we feel will suit though and he can gain some more valuable experience here. The ratings suggest the Dascombe horse - Devious Company - is one here.

Paintball Wizard 
Wed 19th Aug 2020
20:00, Bath

Has been a slow maturing sort - he was not suited by the AW on his handicap debut and hopefully Bath will have plenty of rain which will be ideal and show him in a better light. We think he is probably well-handicapped though and Ross knows him well. Each-way.

Big Jimbo    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed for Gary's horse.


Wed 19th Aug 2020
19:30, Bath

Ran a pleasing race over the sticks last time out at Bangor but back on the flat here. Will like the softer ground so hoping the rain continues and this race has been planned since that last run - although we do feel his future lies over the jumps. Still looks to have a fair e/w chance if building on that last run in what looks a pretty average contest.

Cassidy Jo    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Wed 19th Aug 2020
19:00, Bath

Not a great race so that should give every a fair chance. Shown fair form around this sort of level to date from her three runs and getting 7lbs from five of the runners an obvious help. Track and trip are fine and we are hopeful on the softer ground - if handling it then feel we've got e/w claims here. Looks to have My Brother Mike and Johni Boxit as the main dangers - but, as I say, if getting through the softer ground then each-way claims.

Halfacrown

Bids for a hat-trick over this course and distance. This is a tougher assignment but she deserves a chance in a better race. Softer ground would be a concern.

Slightly surpising win from Julia's horse but one to note next time when Southwell AW start racing again.


Wed 19th Aug 2020
17:30, Bath

Is best suited by Southwell but have not been able to run there this year. This run should hopefully put him right to go back there at the end of the month.

Justice Knight 
Wed 19th Aug 2020
14:35, Stratford upon Avon

Returning from around 6 months off so no matter what can be expected to improve for this. Won't mind the slightly softer ground though and well at home. Richard's 3lb claim helps and is well suited by this trip. Still a bit to prove too as 7lbs higher than last win, so just be happy with a nice run back. Roar and Right Destination look the obvious ones.  

Phoebus Lescribaa 
Wed 19th Aug 2020
14:05, Stratford upon Avon

Ran okay two runs back but found the trip a bit on the sharp side last time at Bangor (both over hurdles) - therefore, the step up in distance here is a plus. He's back over fences here - only third run over the bigger obstacles - but jumps well and is rated 3lbs lower over fences. We are the only distance winner in the field, so that must count for something. Going Mobile probably the one to aim at, but we head here with fair place claims.

Outisaid 
Wed 19th Aug 2020
13:35, Stratford upon Avon

Going to be hard for any of us to beat the in-form O'Brien runner - Courtandbould - who heads here on a three-timer. Our fella was 95 lengths behind that horse last time too at Stratford so we've a lot to make up! Will, however, be better for that last run after a long break, so hoping to get a bit closer, but will be better once handicapped.

Slade King 
Tue 18th Aug 2020

Much improved run from Harry's horse.


Tue 18th Aug 2020

First time in a handicap here today so that will help after three average runs. Still learning though and we'll find out more about his opening mark today so just be happy with a step in the right direction.

Hector Loza 
Tue 18th Aug 2020

Tue 18th Aug 2020

Solid run - went down by just a neck in the end.


Tue 18th Aug 2020

First run back after a long break. Disappointing on the flat the other day so probably best-watched on this occasion.

Midnight Chill 
Tue 18th Aug 2020
15:45, Fontwell Park

Midnight Chill won three novice handicaps the season before last, but got stuck in the mud last winter.  Back down to his last winning mark, he'd have a chance here if he puts his best foot forward.  He can be quite lazy, so he might be a tough ride for Gavin, but he's got the ability to win again this autumn.

Vision Clear    WINNER! winner

Solid each-way run from Gary's horse.


Tue 18th Aug 2020
15:15, Fontwell Park

Well at home and fit from running on the flat a few months ago. Gone well off a small break in the past too and Niall helps by taking off 7lbs. Every chance in a competitive little race.  Sound e/w claims.

Carntop 
Tue 18th Aug 2020
15:15, Fontwell Park

Carntop has won a brace of novice hurdles before winning off a 2lbs higher mark last summer, and so can be competitive here.  He didn't stay 2m4 last time out, and wasn't beaten far on his seasonal debut this season in a slowly run contest. The return to 2m1 here should help as should the re-application of blinkers, so he's not a bad each way chance here.

Disappointing last season. First run back after a disappointing run on the flat so hopefully can improve this time.

Chapmanshype    WINNER! winner

Great call from Jamie and another TQ View winner this month.


Tue 18th Aug 2020
14:45, Fontwell Park

Chapmanshype was highly progressive last summer, winning four handicaps and rising from a mark of 110 to a mark of 132.  He didn't really get the run of the race on his seasonal debut, but he's got to improve again off this kind of mark. He's fresh and well, and back over the course and distance he has won over twice before, he shouldn't be too far away in what looks a competitive race.

Et Moi Alors 
Tue 18th Aug 2020
14:15, Fontwell Park

Beaten a long way on his chase debut but I truly think ET MOI ALORS will progress from that run. I suspect ET MOI ALORS may have a battle with the top one Jen's Boy, from the Henderson yard, but I hope to see him give a decent account of himself today.

Jumping Cats 
Tue 18th Aug 2020
13:45, Fontwell Park

First run over hurdles but JUMPING CATS has put in some nice work at home so I hope to see a decent run from him today. Fit from the flat too (ran last month at Sandown) and I would like to think he has good each-way claims today.

Shantou Master    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Gary - albeit a tad unexpected.


Tue 18th Aug 2020
13:45, Fontwell Park

I have two runners in this race and this is the first run for me from SHANTOU MASTER I would think probably best-watched today as he has been off the track a long time whereas JUMPING CATS has had a few flat runs whilst waiting for an opportunity to go jumping. Nevertheless SHANTOU MASTERS, who is a former Pointer, progress at home has been good and I think the trip and going will be perfect for him.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Mon 17th Aug 2020
16:20, Catterick

Yet to show much on the track so we need to see more on that front. Hopeful the return to the turf will help though and breeding suggests this softer ground - that he's trying for the first time - will suit. Still finding his way with just 4 career runs, so really just be delighted with an improved effort here.

Compadre    WINNER! winner

Nice call from James.


Mon 17th Aug 2020
14:40, Uttoxeter

Two solid runs behind him and the form of his last run has worked out well with the winner hacking up last week. Should be thereabouts in what looks a tight little race.

College Oak    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Jamie.


Mon 17th Aug 2020
13:35, Uttoxeter

Won his bumper last autumn and ran well in two novice hurdle starts on really soft ground. We gave him a break to come back for the spring, but that obviously never materialised which was disappointing. However, it does mean he remained a novice for this season. He should appreciate this better ground - he jumps nicely and he looks to have improved at home too.

French De Guye 
Mon 17th Aug 2020
13:35, Uttoxeter

First run over obstacles, which should see him in a better light. Probably be more of a player later in handicaps though and also over fences like his brothers. Still a big baby so a safe passage is the main objective.

Sun 16th Aug 2020
18:10, Newbury

Third run after being gelded over the winter. Took a step forward last time out at Kempton when a much better 4th (of 13) and that came after not getting a clear run too. Well at home and freshened up with around 4 weeks off. Trip, ground and track are all fine and if taking another leap forward here must have fair e/w claims in what looks an open affair.

Rolfe Rembrandt    WINNER! winner

Fluffed the start but it didn't matter as came home well to win with a bit in-hand.


Sun 16th Aug 2020
16:10, Newbury

A nice little race - with all 5 runners looking to have some sort of a say. Rolfe has done really well for us in his three races so far - and despite not winning yet has been placed in the top three each time. Tried 6f last time but we feel the drop back to 5f here will suit as just ran out of gas last time. Speedy sort that has also run well with a bit of cut in the ground, while Thore's 3lb claim is an added bonus. Looking forward to a good run and should not be far away. One Day and Jojo Rabbit are the ones we probably fear the most.

Cosmelli 
Sun 16th Aug 2020
15:00, Newbury

Back on the grass after a top win at Newcastle (AW) last month. We've given him a month or so off to get over that race and seems well at home for it. Turf mark is 4lbs lower than his win last time and George rides again to claim another 5lbs. Has won with give in the ground in the past so conditions are fine and stays further than this 1m5f trip so that will help in the closing stages. Does, however, looks a very competitive race with many chances - with the Queen's horse - Space Walk - probably the one to beat. But the horse is well and we head here hopeful of a good run. Each-way price.

Sat 15th Aug 2020

Has won on soft ground in the past so no issues on that front with all the rain. That in also came off a 4lbs higher mark too - this month last year. Freshened up after a poor run last time out - was never travelling that day and eased so can be forgiven. Form prior to that last effort had been good so if bouncing back not without an e/w chance with conditions to suit.

Boma Green    WINNER! winner

Nice debut run from Charlie's horse.


Sat 15th Aug 2020
18:00, Chepstow

Has been incredibly tough to train but is a talented horse. He too will like the soft ground but the track worries me. However, there are no other options at the moment. Roger Varian's will be hard to beat but mine could give him something to think about.

Saigon Suzi 
Sat 15th Aug 2020

Gas Monkey    WINNER! winner

Close second and looks sure to be winning again before too long.


Sat 15th Aug 2020
17:55, Newbury

Has been a star for the yard since being fitted with a hood last year - he loves it here (CD winner) and ground will be perfect. Sam Feilden has yet to ride a winner so claims a handy 7lbs but he is quite capable and so long as he stays cool must have a good chance of getting off the mark.

Angel On High 
Sat 15th Aug 2020
17:40, Doncaster

Only a pound higher than when running a fine second at Kempton back in June. That came off a 5 month break too and after just getting tired in the closing stages the drop back to 1m2f will suit - has won over this trip. Luke Morris is also back in the saddle and has won on him before too. Given another few months to freshen up but seems to go well off a break - open race, but also a tough one so more needed. Going the right way and small e/w claims.

King Carney    WINNER! winner

Plugged on really well - much improved effort and one to watch next time.


Sat 15th Aug 2020

Has been really disappointing this year but he has had clear excuses on both occasions. He has been gelded since his last run and will love the ground and should suit the drop in trip. Hoping to see a revival today.

Jungle Boogaloo 
Fri 14th Aug 2020
17:25, Lingfield Park

A bit of an enigma - capable but needs to show it on the track. But into a Classified Stakes here and the ratings suggest we've a fair chance. Surely the horse's best chance must be today. Looks a nice e/w chance.

Caen Na Coille    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Charlie's horse.


Fri 14th Aug 2020

Delighted with his win at Lingfield last time out on only his second run. Into a handicap here and a harder race so more needed but will be well suited by this trip again and Jim Crowley, who has ridden him before, is an obvious plus riding. Three non-runners in the race obviously now help and we've only one other rival to take on at this stage - Iron Heart - Should be an interesting tactical battle between two of the best jockeys around!

Perfect Inch

Thu 13th Aug 2020
12:45, Salisbury

One of the more experienced in the field so hoping that will help us. Cheekpieces on for the first time too and Hollie Doyle a bonus in the saddle. Ignore the last run as fluffed the start and over that 5f trip had no time to recover. The step up to 7f will suit and she's had a month to get over that last run. But, might be tough against the Johnston and Ward runners and on a plus this is her third run so will get a handicap mark after this.

Beryl Burton

Nice 2 year-old but like a lot of mine on debut will come on for the experience and likely to want a tad further in time.

Mayfair Pompette has taken a while to understand how to race properly but I thought last time was much better as she settled and got into a nice rhythm. Step up in trip is sure to suit, as will the all weather. Good chance from a good draw.

Crosse Fire 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
18:10, Wolverhampton

Having his 116th race today and back on the AW where the bulk of his wins have been. Rated 2lbs lower than last career win (Sept 19) so that helps, but most of his AW wins have been at Southwell. Has, however, only raced at Wolves a handful of times - seems to have come on for recent runs since the break and the step up to 7f is fine. Overall capable on his best form but does need to bounce back and is taking on some in-form rivals.

Samovar 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
17:35, Wolverhampton

Consistent sprinter in and around this sort of level - not beaten far last time over this 5f trip at Southwell having missed the break and a pound lower for that. Not without a squeak but the wide draw in 10 makes life hard as likes to generally run up with the pace and that might now require him to use up a bit too much early on.

Noble Account 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
17:25, Kempton Park

Has loads of ability and works like a group horse at home! Ross will be riding him cold and hope to coast through the race - he knows him well and if we have a good pace to aim at this could fall into his lap!

Thermal    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner, but ran on well to show promise.

Runs well for an amateur so this sort of race will be fine. In a tricky contest though with many chances so no more than e/w chances.

Krystallite 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
17:05, Wolverhampton

Second runner in the race for us and a proven CD winner. Missed the break last time out here over this trip so had excuses there. 12 races without a win but starting to look well-handicapped on old form with last success coming off 5lbs higher. Needs to show a bit more on the track, but hard to pick between by two in the race - with both looking to have similar small e/w chances.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
17:05, Wolverhampton

Only fourth career run - first time in a handicap today and that should also help. Has shown fair form to date and should be suited by this first try on an AW surface. Jonathan Fisher helps too with his 5lb claim. Still learning and will have more to come - Small each-way chance.

Relative Choice    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Gary and the team.


Wed 12th Aug 2020
16:35, Wolverhampton

Well drawn for a change in stall 4 and that will help a lot. Well at home and if acting on the AW, hopefully will have every chance. Looks a nice e/w option in an open affair.

Rudy Lewis 
Wed 12th Aug 2020
16:10, Beverley

Rudy Lewis won an apprentice race last week and so is able to run again without a penalty. In fact, he is carrying 3lbs less because of Cierens claim. Ground is perfect too - however, the track would be my only concern. The quicker they go the better.

Ivaquestion 
Wed 12th Aug 2020

One Of The Girls 
Wed 12th Aug 2020

Only average debut run at Leicester - needs to improve on that but will gain more experience here and she'll also be better once handicapped.

Wed 12th Aug 2020

Always looked like a 2 year old and had no luck and was green on first two starts. More encouraging last time and the race has worked out well. Sure to find her races, 7f will suit and no surprise to see her involved today, even from a wide draw.

Golden Bear    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Charlie's horse.


Wed 12th Aug 2020
13:15, Kempton Park

Golden Bear has really disappointed me to date because he promises so much at home but hasn’t really delivered on the track. That said, he has had plenty of excuses. Today there doesn’t seem to be any. Well drawn, will love the track and has a top jockey.

Sea Shack 
Tue 11th Aug 2020
19:55, Lingfield Park

Is a lovely horse to give Sam Feilden the experience he needs - the 7f may be a bit sharp for him here, but he has a good draw and hopefully he will run well for Sam and be staying on at the finish.

The Warrior 
Tue 11th Aug 2020
19:55, Lingfield Park

Our horses overall are a bit up and down at the moment so a word of caution on that front. But The Warrior seems well at home and loves the track here so we thought we'd run in this amateur riders' race. Capable jockey on that can claim 7lbs so that helps and this drop back to 7f is fine. A squeak on his best form, but - as I say - we'd be more confident when the horses in general are running a bit better.

Starter For Ten    WINNER! winner

Showed enough promise here to suggest a win is not far away.


Tue 11th Aug 2020
19:25, Lingfield Park

Has not been with me long but I have been pleased with his work at home. Today is very much a fact-finding mission as I am not sure what his best trip will be - but he is well drawn and should go well on the AW surface.

Mr Scaramanga 
Tue 11th Aug 2020

Normally at his best here and not had many chances in recent months. Wide draw no help here over a trip that is a bit sharp for him these days but always tries hard and can never be discounted.

Isayalittleprayer 
Tue 11th Aug 2020
18:25, Lingfield Park

Yet to win from 6 runs, but has run well several times. Probably our best chance of the day if the way the AW is riding suits her style of racing - has been a close second over this CD in the past.

Iballisticvin

Mont Kiara 
Tue 11th Aug 2020
17:15, Wolverhampton

Celestial Point 
Tue 11th Aug 2020

I was pleased with his run here last time, he showed his inexperience when he hit the front 2f from home - but still did well to stay on well to be a close-up third. The form of that race has worked out well and the horse of Jamie Snowden’s, who just beat us is in the race today, looks a fair sort - that horse was meant to run here today too but is a non-runner now. Our horse is a very laid back individual and I'm hoping he has come on for that run - should be bang there.

Isaac Wonder 
Mon 10th Aug 2020
14:15, Southwell

Disappointed us last time out at Bangor when only fourth as the odds-on favourite. Was never happy that day back over hurdles so he's returning to fences today. He won well over this CD two runs ago - beating Azzuri - by 3/4 of a length. We take on that horse again here on similar terms so that gives us hope. Needs to bounce back and put that last effort behind him but the cheekpieces are on today too and they will hopefully help him settle. Open-looking race, but each-way chances.

Adrrastos    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Mon 10th Aug 2020
14:15, Southwell

Has been a prolific winner over the year and has risen through the handicap ranks as a result. He got in behind a wall of horses last time out in the Summer Plate at Market Rasen and got claustrophobic. This smaller field should suit him better and he'll run another sound race but might be in the grip of the handicapper at the moment.

Anglo Saxson 
Sun 9th Aug 2020
16:00, Salisbury

Won nicely last time at Yarmouth and will have no problems with the step up in trip. Ground should also be perfect. This is a much tougher race though and he will need to bring his A-game to win it.

Valletta Sunset 
Sun 9th Aug 2020
15:15, Windsor

Is making his handicap debut - he had been a slow maturing type and we think he is well-handicapped. He has run well over CD too, but he could have done with some rain. But this does look the easier division so he takes his chance and must have a good each-way shout.

Quloob 
Sat 8th Aug 2020
17:40, Newmarket

Goes without saying we've all got the Balding horse - Coltrane - to beat. But we still fee we've got an each-way chance here today. We got the tactics wrong last time after leading so the horse will be dropped in today. 2lbs lower today and Rhys takes off another 7lbs so 9lbs better off too. Blinkers are on too to try and help him settle and despite only 6 runners we feel we've got place claims.

Pacify 
Sat 8th Aug 2020
17:30, Uttoxeter

Was a revelation last summer and autumn and won five on the bounce. He came up short in a couple of Graded races, but he is a classy horse from the flat and has a good attitude to jumping. He attacks his fences well and should make into a useful novice chaser. This looks a decent contest as you'd expect with the minimal opportunities since the resumption of racing, but he's fit and well, while I look forward to seeing him making his debut over the bigger obstacles.

Via Serendipity    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Charlie - top stuff.


Sat 8th Aug 2020
14:25, Ascot

Has not been with me long, after coming from the Stuart Williams yard, so I'm still learning a lot about him. His work has been faultless at home and he has a good record at Ascot and we are the only course winner in the field. Therefore, this seemed like the right race to start the horse off for us in. He is well-handicapped on old form too.

First Prophet 
Sat 8th Aug 2020
13:15, Ascot

Has been disappointing since a winning debut - however, he didn't like the soft ground at Ascot and I don't think he got home at Salisbury recently. The drop in trip should suit and I think he will love the track - don't lose faith!

The Whipmaster

Krystallite

17:50, Wolverhampton

Krystallite - She's a course and distance winner but drawn wider than ideal! They went quicker than I wanted early on last time out but she's come out of that fine and down in the handicap. If she gets the rub off the green and can over come the draw she's got place claims at the very least. Each-way chance!!

Talkingpicturestv 
Fri 7th Aug 2020
16:20, Cartmel

Talkingpicturestv - We’re taking a long trip up to Cartmel to hopefully make it 3 wins on the bounce under Mille Wonnacott. She’s in good order, eating well and 4lb in with her penalty, ground is fine so hopefully with a clear round she'll complete the hat-trick.

Reims    WINNER! winner

Stay on well to take third.


Fri 7th Aug 2020
16:15, Wolverhampton

Reims has her first start for the yard tomorrow, bit of a fact finding mission as we are still learning about her, doesn’t look the strongest of races so worth taking a shot albeit we’d be really keen to get her on turf which is where the family seem to thrive.

Habanero Star - She’s having her handicap debut today and doesn’t have the best of draws being drawn out wide so best watched today.

Coole Well 
Fri 7th Aug 2020
15:45, Cartmel

Coole Well has some good form to his name but was caught in the grip of the handicapper. His mark has dropped and he could be quite well in now, but he's a tricky character so providing he puts his best foot forward today, he's got every chance.

Celestial Point 
Fri 7th Aug 2020
12:35, Sandown

We are running today with more restraint which hopefully will see her finish off better.  Each way claims at best.

Gypsy Boy 
Fri 7th Aug 2020
12:35, Sandown

Gypsy Boy - A nice colt who’s showing promise at home. This is a tough ask for his first run and we’ll both learn a lot today, another thats best watched and will be interesting going forward in time!

Seaborn    WINNER! winner

Another comfortable winner for the Moores.


Thu 6th Aug 2020
18:20, Stratford upon Avon

Seaborn - Slightly disappointing latest. Off a good mark so we are hopeful of a big step forward.

Lovers Gait    WINNER! winner

Lovers Gait, looks one to follow.


Thu 6th Aug 2020
17:10, Bath

Lovers Gait - Back to the scene of the crime as she bids to follow up recent course and distance win. Up in grade but did it comfortably enough last time to suggest she will be up to this class. Lightly raced and the small field will probably suit her.

Outisaid 
Thu 6th Aug 2020
16:15, Stratford upon Avon

Outisaid - A pointer to pointer who's having his first run under rules and having yet to complete in points so a big unknown. He is working nicely but today will all be a fact finding mission and clear round most important so best watched!

Silver Cliffs 
Thu 6th Aug 2020
16:10, Bath

Silver Cliffs - Ran well last time when still a bit green. In good form with good e/w chance.

Filles De Fleur    WINNER! winner

Another top quote from the Moore team.


Wed 5th Aug 2020
20:05, Lingfield Park

This is the first run for me from FILLES DE FLEUR. She has been working well at home and her work suggests she is fit enough if good enough. I have been pleased with her progress on the whole so I hope to see her go close today.

Emperor Alley 
Wed 5th Aug 2020
19:35, Lingfield Park

Got a bit outpaced over 1m on debut - hence the step up in trip here to 1m4f. Still, however, only second career run so needs to improve and likely to do better in time, plus when handicapped - but should put in a better effort today and gain more experience.

King Athelstan 
Wed 5th Aug 2020
19:05, Lingfield Park

KING ATHELSTAN has not run for a while and I am hoping that the break will have freshened him up. Has won over further but he will not be inconvenienced by the drop back in trip especially as the track is riding slow.  I suspect that King Athelstan may just benefit from this run tonight and he is probably off a stiff enough mark but he should give a good account of himself as he is a very honest horse.

Shyron 
Wed 5th Aug 2020
19:05, Lingfield Park

Old boy at 9 and having his 65th run today. Very well-handicapped on old form as he's now dropped to a mark of 67 and was in the 80's last year. Course winner but only niggle is the step back up to 1m2f as all wins have been over shorter. Tom Marquand also rides this one for us too. Lot of weight to carry in 10-2 but dropped in grade into this 0-65 gives him a much better chance. Small e/w, but as I say, needs to be ridden to get the trip.

Dove Divine 
Wed 5th Aug 2020
18:35, Lingfield Park

Nice draw in 1 and top jockey in Tom Marquand booked. First run for yard after coming from the Hughie Morrison yard. Has settled in well and despite not winning has shown some fair form from 7 career runs. Returns for us 3lbs lower than last time and has gone okay fresh in the past. We'll learn a lot today and its really a fact finding mission and sure to come on for the run, but we think a very small each-way chance today if she has settled in well.

Ragtime Sally 
Wed 5th Aug 2020
17:35, Lingfield Park

Tried over longer trips of late but not really been getting home. Drop back to a mile today will, therefore, suit and we are also 3lbs lower than last outing. Nice draw in 4 helps and Nicola Currie knows the horse well. Overall, more is needed but we expect to see an improved run over this trip and back on the AW. Each-way.

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
20:15, Lingfield Park

Kids race but we've got one of the better jockeys riding in Dylan Hogan. Not really sparkled this year for us but has dropped to a fair mark as a result. Looks a wide open affair and on her best form would certainly have a chance. A few non-runners help too so e/w claims today.

Good Luck Charm    WINNER! winner

Soild run from the old horse.


Tue 4th Aug 2020
20:15, Lingfield Park

Still going well at the age of 11 and should have another race in him in the right grade. Jockey gets on well with him so in this apprentice race that's a help Goes well on the surface too and is a proven CD winner here at Lingfield. Each-way chance in an open race.

Lemon Song 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
18:45, Lingfield Park

Shown a bit of form to date. Third run so will get a handicap mark after this and likely to be seen in a better light then. Cheekpieces will, however, help and the slight drop in trip will also be a plus. More experience here will help him going forward too.

Roundabout Magic 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
18:15, Lingfield Park

Great record here but not won over 6f at this track yet. Needs a strong pace to aim up and creeping up the handicap but no horse tries harder and can never be discounted at this level.

Fairy Fast 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
18:15, Lingfield Park

No joy with the draw (10) so going to need a lot of luck in-running from there - we'll be forced to now drop in and hope for the best as can't really go forward from that draw over this 6f as won't get home.

Anti Cool 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
16:55, Southwell

Pulled far too hard for his own good last time, and consequently didn't quite get home. He should have come on a bit for that though, and if he settles & gives himself a chance should be capable of a decent run.

Chica Del Dia 
Tue 4th Aug 2020
16:40, Lingfield Park

Immature filly and shown inexperience in both starts so far and this looks another warm event. Handicapped after this and will have better opportunities as time goes on.

Alibaba    WINNER! winner

No chance with the easy winner but still ran on well to land the e/w money.


Mon 3rd Aug 2020
18:45, Windsor

Has strengthened up and improved after lockdown - he never shows much at home but comes alive on the track. A step up in class here and we probably have the favourite to beat but we hope he is still improving and will be in the shake-up.

Olivia Brend 
Mon 3rd Aug 2020
15:30, Yarmouth

Third run today and will get a handicap mark after this - not shown much to date, but the step back to 6f will help and we also feel the first time visor will too. Jockey claims 7lbs too so a better run on the cards but still likely to be one to follow once handicapped.

Winter Snowdrop    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take this for Julia Feilden.


Mon 3rd Aug 2020
15:00, Yarmouth

Ran very well on last run for Tyler Heard and he rides again over this course and distance - she tries hard and hopefully has an e/w chance again.

Luxford 
Mon 3rd Aug 2020
15:00, Yarmouth

Luxford has not troubled the winners enclosure for a while but ran well finishing a promising third on her run before last but looked to have been rather intimidated last time out and disappointed. Hopefully if the race pans out well for her with confidence restored I hope to see LUXFORD finish in the frame.

Lady Morpheus 
Mon 3rd Aug 2020
14:30, Yarmouth

In good form since a win on the all weather recently. I see no reason why she won't manage the step up in trip and as long as the ground has no jar in it I expect her to run well. Has to overcome a 6 pound rise though but LADY MORPHEUS has run well on the turf.

Rudy Lewis    WINNER! winner

Held on to give the in-form Charlie Fellowes yard another nice winner this month.


Mon 3rd Aug 2020
13:45, Haydock

Didn't get home last time out at Salisbury so the drop back to 10f on an easier track will really suit him. We also have the best apprentice in the country helping us today too. Only negative is a wide draw which complicates things slightly on a horse that needs cover.

Gossip 
Sun 2nd Aug 2020
17:10, Leicester

Only had 5 career runs so will have more to come. Second run for us and needs to show more than debut, but is 5lbs lower this time and we think the drop back to 5f will help. Watching brief though for now until we see more.

Immortal Beloved    WINNER! winner

Top call from Charlie.


Sun 2nd Aug 2020
15:55, Sandown

Would have won in another stride last time out at Haydock and should be suited by this step up in trip. I don't think she will mind the quick going and she should handle the track. Hopefully she will go close.

Parkers Boy 
Sun 2nd Aug 2020
14:10, Leicester

Only second run for the yard - yet to win a race from 10 runs and really needs to show a bit more. Drop in trip to 7f will help though and gets in here with a low weight but still need to see more on the track before being more confident.

Dont Tell Claire    WINNER! winner

Top winner for the Kubler team.


Sun 2nd Aug 2020
13:45, Sandown

A case can be made for most here - she has been placed on all three starts this year in novice company and learned plenty on her true debut last time out, when early interference knocked her out of rhythm but she finished the race nicely and should see out the stiff 7f nicely on that evidence.

Capla Spirit 
Sun 2nd Aug 2020
13:25, Newcastle

Second runner on the day for us - likes the AW surfaces too and was a solid third last time out at Sandown. 3lbs lower back on the AW here and remains in good heart at home. Should run his race and not be far away. Each-way.

Cape Greco 
Sun 2nd Aug 2020
12:50, Newcastle

Won well two runs back and probably needed the run last time at Wolves after a break. Has come on for that at home and likes these AW surfaces. Open race but feel we've got an e/w chance here.

Seneca Chief    WINNER! winner

First of two winners on the day for Daniel and Claire.


Sun 2nd Aug 2020
12:00, Sandown

A competitive heat - only his second start on the turf and will need to show more improvement but his homework is suggestive that he can be competitive at this level.

Halfacrown 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
17:25, Chepstow

Step up in trip and the switch to turf could be the making of him. Worth a sporting each-way as his recent run was a respectable effort off a break.

Lord Clenaghcastle

Spice War 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
16:50, Chepstow

Spice ran better than his position suggests at Newbury three weeks ago, it was a much more competitive race than this and he wasn’t beaten that far. He did hang a bit in the home straight but we’ve found nothing wrong with him that could’ve caused it so I have to hope it was a one off. Spice came back from that race in good order and because he prefers to be on the fresh side we’re not done a lot with him since. This is a lesser race today and he’s a big horse to carry the weight. I’d be disappointed if he was out of the four today. He’ll be going hurdling after this.
Dovils Date 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
16:50, Chepstow

Old-timer that's still going and having his 65th race today. Ran well at Lingfield two runs back when a close 6th, but failed to build on that at Bath last time over a longer trip. Dropped a few pounds for that and Charlie rides today and claims 5lbs so 7lbs better off this time. CD winner here too and won't mind the quicker ground. Seems well after a small break so each-way claims.

Mayfair Spirit 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
16:25, Newmarket

Has been an amazing horse - winning 6 out of this 10 starts. He will like conditions today but was withdrawn at the start last time out after misbehaving in the gates - so needs to do better than that.

Dubious Affair 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
15:50, Newmarket

Has done brilliantly this year - winning 3-from-3 for us. However, this is by fay her toughest test so far now up to Listed company so she will need to improve again. On a plus, only 3 rivals and despite all being rated higher than us they are all out of form so that gives us hope. She comes here with her confidence sky-high so we'll have to see if that trumps the out-of-form runners. Looking forward to it though and win, lose or draw she owes us nothing this season.

Golden Lips 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
15:15, Newmarket

Ran a blinder in the Lingfield Oaks Trial back in June but highly-tried last time out at Ascot in the Ribblesdale Stakes. Back into a Listed race her helps but still looks a tough race. Trip and ground are fine and should have more to come so be happy with a solid performance, but likely to find a few too good today.

Quloob 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
14:25, Goodwood

Competitive staying handicap. Seems to have come on well enough for his last run as that came off a break. Didn't quite see out the 2m4f trip that day at Ascot so the drop back to 1m6f will suit the horse much better today. 2lbs lower and the quick ground is fine, while first run at the track but can't see any issues on that front. Each-way chance in an open affair.

Dark Shot 
Sat 1st Aug 2020
13:50, Goodwood

Fair bit to prove at the moment and on long losing run - on a plus has dropped to a fair mark (72) and starting to look very well handicapped with his last win coming off a mark of 80. But despite running well in some top handicaps has still only 2 career wins to his name from 48 races, but 12 seconds! Low weight helps, 14th in this race last year but is 8lbs lower this time. Overall a bit to answer based on recent runs so hard to be too confident, but as mentioned, current handicap mark means he can't be totally ruled out running better than odds suggest.

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Simon and the team.


Fri 31st Jul 2020
20:35, Wolverhampton

Finally found his form again last time when everything went right for him at Kempton. Has come out of that well and has a fair chance again, still well handicapped if things pan out for him here on his first visit to the track.

Capricorn Prince    WINNER! winner

Another win for this improving sort.


Fri 31st Jul 2020
20:25, Lingfield Park

Horse seems in good heart and is a proven CD winner here at Lingfield. Has done very well so far this season - winning three times - and hopefully will continue to improve. 

Light of Air 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
20:25, Lingfield Park

First run of the season. Probably best watched on this occasion with an inexperienced rider on board.

Byron Hill 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
20:05, Wolverhampton

Is a lovely scopey staying type who has taken a while to come to hand, but is now ready for his racecourse debut. I expect him to be green and learn from the experience, but hopefully will run with plenty of promise still.

Relativity 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
20:05, Wolverhampton

Third run so will get a handicap mark after today and will be seen in a better light once in races like that. Be a shock if this isn't going to one of the Stoute or Suroor runners.

Subliminal 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
19:55, Lingfield Park

Solid and best form here and ran a great race last time over same distance. Always needs luck in-running and has a hot favourite to beat but can never be discounted if things go right for him and seems in good form.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
19:55, Lingfield Park

Ran very well last time on the AW. The race last time was a waste of time as the ground went heavy so back on her favourite surface and should have every chance.

Galactic Spirit 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
19:35, Wolverhampton

Has his own way of doing things and now back from a long break. Could run well fresh but likely to need the run and is tackling 1m6f for the first time.

Savitar 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
19:25, Lingfield Park

CD winner so no track issues and ran better than recent run indicates (4th) as missed the kick a bit. Not been done any favours by the draw (10) so will be a big ask from there and might need a bit of luck in-running but the horse is well and if getting a few breaks in the race not without an each-way chance.

Prince Rock    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well and wasn't beaten far at the line.


Fri 31st Jul 2020
19:25, Lingfield Park

Both victories here and run well since resumption but yet to try this slightly longer distance. Generally stays on well in his races so has every chance if the race goes right for him and seems in good shape.

Dream Chaser 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
17:55, Lingfield Park

The Hughie Morrison runner - Equisential - sets a fair standard and looks the most likely winner, but after two fourths we are not without place claims. We feel the step up from 6f to 7f will suit him and has run well at the track before. Also adding the cheekpieces for the first time as we feel these will help the horse settle. Each-way. 

Maxine 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
16:50, Lingfield Park

Nice filly but like a lot of mine will improve for the run being it's her first day at school.

Alex Gracie 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
16:15, Lingfield Park

Didn't quite like the track at Catterick last time out so the return to Lingfield and the AW will help as has run well here before. Same mark as when runner-up here two runs back and Jonathan Fisher takes off a handy 5lbs too. The Appleby horse might be hard to beat but with little depth to the race most of the rest of us must have each-way claims and hoping our proven track experience is a help on that score.

Aquascape 
Fri 31st Jul 2020
13:10, Goodwood

Has run well at the course (2nd) before so that's a plus, but is in a much harder race this time. Trip and quick ground will suit though and should have more to offer with just 4 career runs. Top jockey in Andrea Atzeni riding and the slightly longer trip today from last time should help. More on his plate in what looks a tough race, but with the ability to handle the track then small e/w claims.

Golden Bear 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
16:55, Goodwood

Has run two solid races to date and on both occasions he has misbehaved in the preliminaries, hence he has been gelded since his last start. His work at home has always been very good (better than a 72-rated horse) but he needs to keep a lid on it before the race. Favourite looks very well-handicapped but she only ran 3 days ago and that race was far weaker than this one today. Each-way chance if settling before the race starts!

Relative Choice 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
16:55, Goodwood

Sweet filly who ran well over course and distance on her first run. Hollie Doyle a plus in the saddle. Hopefully the experience will see her go forward today. Would not be shocked to see her run better than her odds suggest despite running from out of the handicap here - reasonable e/w chances today.

Carntop 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
15:00, Southwell

Won off this mark last summer here at Southwell over 2m. This step up in trip is a bit of an unknown, but if he stays then he should have every chance of going in again. He is fit and well and loves the brush hurdles so though it looks another tight handicap - he shouldn't be too far away.

Cervaro Mix    WINNER! winner

Solid first run back and one to note next time.


Thu 30th Jul 2020
14:30, Southwell

Cervao Mix ran very flat in his last race in early March, he’d been on the go a long time and I think he just needed a break. He went away for a good holiday after that. He would probably prefer a bit further than this two miles but he can be very keen when he’s fresh so I’ve dropped him back in trip today in the hope there is a good strong gallop and he can settle. He is a horse that has ability, he hasn’t always helped himself by not relaxing in his races and I would like to step him back up in trip once I’ve got the gas out of him. He’s pretty fit but he will improve for the outing.

Junkanoo    WINNER! winner

Superb call from Gary - Glorious Goodwood winner at 50/1!


Thu 30th Jul 2020
13:45, Goodwood

Ran well for much of the way at Windsor last time and only just got a bit tired at the end to finish a fair fourth. Hopefully the track and the ground will suit, but has at least run here at the course in the past (on debut). Goes without saying a tough race but although 3lbs out of the handicap, confident he has reasonable e/w chances at a fair price.

Note Bleu 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
13:45, Goodwood

Second runner in the race for us. First race on grass but no reason why it won't suit. Like our other runner, is 3lbs out of the handicap but hopefully should have reasonable e/w chances with George able to claim 5lbs too.

Tarsini 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
13:30, Southwell

First run for us and only second career run - and that came back in 2018! Therefore would be a big ask after such a lay-off so really just hoping for a solid run back and build from there.

Secret Court 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
13:30, Southwell

Ran really well on hurdles debut and in good heart at home. This is a hot little contest with the Fry runner the obvious one that sets the standard - but she has place claims here today at a nice price with ground, track and trip all fine.

Canton Prince 
Thu 30th Jul 2020
13:00, Southwell

Did well last summer so the plan was to always get him out again around this time of the year. Had a nice break and fair record over fences from only 4 runs. Acts well on this good ground too, but negative is the step up in grade in what looks a hot little race. But he's well at home and - as I say - will love the ground. Would not be surprised if he went well at a nice price. Each-way.

Phoebus Lescribaa 
Wed 29th Jul 2020
15:00, Bangor

Ran well last time, and has place claims. Trip a slight worry as may be on the short side for him, and he is a horse that likes to have things go his own way. Very capable if he is in the mood! For Pleasure looks the obvious one, but in a race that lacks depth we'd have an e/w chance.

Mukha Magic 
Wed 29th Jul 2020
13:45, Goodwood

Ran well at Ascot two runs ago in the Queen Alexandra Stakes over this sort of trip - didn't really build on that last time at Kempton over 2m but the return to longer will suit and should like the track. Super competitive race though - with some leading staying handicaps in the line-up. But the horse is well and should run his race - small e/w chance.

Floral Bouquet    WINNER! winner

Just got collared on the line.


Wed 29th Jul 2020
13:30, Bangor

Was a good second at Aintree last summer on decent ground and has been waiting for a mares race over 2m4f on good ground for sometime. Off a winnable mark here and she looks to have a good opportunity - albeit in a competitive race.

Isaac Wonder 
Wed 29th Jul 2020
12:00, Bangor

Delighted with his win at Southwell last time out - that came over fences but is back over hurdles today in what looks a winnable race. Had 4 weeks to get over that last run and is well at home - loves the good ground and this trip is ideal. Two good runs on the flat and over fences this season. Has some solid enough hurdles form from two seasons ago. Looks in front on the ratings and this looks a good opportunity for him back over hurdles in Novice company.

Cape Greco 
Tue 28th Jul 2020
20:00, Yarmouth

Lady Quickstep 
Tue 28th Jul 2020
19:00, Yarmouth

Ran okay here last time out - beaten just over 4 lengths. Has been dropped 4lbs for that and we are also in an easier graded race here so that should make her more competitive. We are also hopeful the first-time cheekpieces will help her through the race - small chance, but just be delighted with an improved run and build on that.

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner

Another decent run from Julia's horse.


Tue 28th Jul 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

Has come out of her win at Yarmouth last time well. She is in good form and is still well-handicapped. The drop to 7f is no problem and she does seem to go better for the girsls so Sophie Ralston rides her again. She would have a good each-way chance again.

Ubla 
Tue 28th Jul 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

CD winner so likes the track, but does need to build on a slightly poor run last time. On a plus, that came after a break so can be expected to have come on for it and the drop back from 1m to 7f will suit. The horse also has a much lower turf rating as we are running off 12lbs lower than last time. But with just 1 win from 16 runs on the grass does have a bit to answer - as mentioned though that sole turf win did at least come here at Yarmouth and off this mark! Small chances.

Secret Art 
Tue 28th Jul 2020
17:00, Yarmouth

In good form and ran a better race last time out at Kempton. But might have liked softer ground on the turf, which we are not sure he'll get today. Right race though and rated 10lbs lower on the grass so could outrun his odds, but - as mentioned - just worried the ground isn't soft enough.

Fume    WINNER! winner

Nice each-way call from Gary.


Tue 28th Jul 2020
16:30, Yarmouth

Ran well to win the last day at Lingfield - more needed off a 5lb higher mark and on the turf here today. Also dropping back in trip but should be fine and as long as he can keep in touch with them, his proven stamina will be a plus in the closing stages. Chris Wall horse feared, but feel we've got fair Each-way claims.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Another top run - just got nabbed on the line, but e/w money landed.


Tue 28th Jul 2020
15:00, Ayr

Gained a much-deserved second career win last time out at Hamilton after a string of placed runs. Up 5lbs for that success but won by just under 4 lengths so that looks fair enough. Same trip and should hopefully get the soft ground that he had last time too. Up one grade here though so another step forward needed, but did it well enough last time to suggest he deserves to take his chance. Well at home after just over 3 weeks off and another bold bid on the cards.

Agent of Fortune 
Tue 28th Jul 2020
13:10, Goodwood

AGENT OF FORTUNE has been great to train on the all weather but has yet to show as much improvement on the grass. However the run at Ascot last time was actually ok after a break and on a less conventional track I am hoping AGENT OF FORTUNE just might show enough improvement to be closer at the finish - but maybe best-watched on this her second run for me on grass. However, Ryan rides so that's an obvious plus.

Chamomile 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
20:30, Windsor

Will be monitoring the ground through the day. Hoping the step up in trip and the wind op gets her career back on track.

Lord Halifax 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
19:30, Windsor

Has completely lost his way since an impressive win at Kempton over the winter. Last time the jockey said he might be better going right-handed and he has run well at Windsor in the past. On top of that the rain over the weekend means the ground is perfect. I have also put cheekpieces on to try and keep him straight - hopefully it all works and the horses overall seem to be in great form so that's an added comfort.

Hector Loza 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
18:00, Windsor

Worth a try back at 6f and getting more conventional after getting over excited for a while. Ease in the ground will help and can't be totally discounted at a big price.

Talkingpicturestv    WINNER! winner

Powered clear to win easily.


Mon 27th Jul 2020
16:30, Market Rasen

Up 9lbs for her easy win at Catterick back in February. Had a break since but is a horse that goes well fresh and acts on all ground so if any more rain comes that's fine. Millie rides again (rode last time) and is able to claim 7lbs so that helps. A few others with similar chances but we head here with a reasonable each-way shout.

Akkapenko    WINNER! winner

Game run from Tim's horse - each-way money landed.


Mon 27th Jul 2020
16:00, Market Rasen

Respectable run on the flat last time out at Chepstow, which helped blow away the cobwebs. Back over hurdles today and only 4lbs higher than when winning at Huntingdon back in October. Charlie Price rides too and cam claim 5lbs so that gives us a chance at the weights. Trip and ground are fine and no reason why he won't be suited by the track - first run here. The Mulholland horse probably the one to beat but feel we head here with an each-way chance.

Between The Waters 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
15:30, Market Rasen

Won a couple of these class races last season - but went up in the handicap as a result and slightly struggled. Back down in class here so he can be competitive again. The favourite will be hard to beat but we should be placed and if the market leader disappoints then we might be there to pick up the pieces.

Bally Lagan 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
13:25, Market Rasen

The old warrior is in great form at home, 2m might be a bit sharp for him these days but he is in good heart and conditions will suit as long as it doesn't get too soft.

Achy Breaky Heart 
Mon 27th Jul 2020
12:50, Market Rasen

A really nice filly who ran well for a long way on ground probably too soft in her bumper back in March at Stratford (6th and only beaten 8 lengths). Conditions should suit today, she is schooling and working well and we are hoping for a good run on debut run over hurdles.

Prince Percy    WINNER! winner

Solid debut run over hurdles.


Mon 27th Jul 2020
12:20, Market Rasen

PRINCE PERCY has been schooling nicely at home. Trappy looking contest but with decent ground forecast I think PRINCE PERCY should have every chance.

Isayalittleprayer    WINNER! winner

Nice effort from Gary's horse.


Sun 26th Jul 2020
17:35, Wolverhampton

First run at Wolverhampton indeed first run on an artificial surface so all being well she should give a good account of herself today as she is working well enough at home. Firm ground conditions in general have forced my hand rather but ISAYALITTLEPRAYER should have every chance today. Looks a nice e/w option in an open affair.

Alramz 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
17:05, Wolverhampton

Nice draw in stall 1 and the drop in class will also make things easier for him. Track an unknown as first run here but still feel we've got a small e/w chance, with the favourite - Gold Standard - the obvious one for us all to aim at.

Gorham's Cave 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:35, Wolverhampton

GORHAM'S CAVE is in the right race and if he is good enough he should have every chance today at a nice price. Draw 4 looks ideal and seems well at home. Each-way.

Olivers Pursuit    WINNER! winner

Ran well to be third.


Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:35, Wolverhampton

Yet to win a race but only had 7 career runs and has shown some fair form to suggest he can go well in a race like this. Working well at home and has improved for his last run at Chelmsford (4th). Eyeshields remain on - had them on for the first time last time - and Luke Morris a plus in the saddle. Each-way chance.

Noble Account 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:35, Wolverhampton

Has so much ability and works so well but has yet to show this on the racetrack - he probably ran his best race here in the past and does like a good pace to run at. If things fall right for him he should have a good each-way chance, while we are also trying the blinkers for the first time too.

Golden Force    WINNER! winner

Showed a great attitude to win this decent handicap.


Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:30, York

Is a very very quirky sort but talented with it. He should love York and the trip is perfect so he will also run well as long as he behaves - each-way.

Robero 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:00, Wolverhampton

Working well at home and a nice draw here in 3. CD winner so no track issues and recent runs here give him a solid profile - 1-4-2-2-3-2. Think we've got a decent each-way chance here.

Giogiobbo 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
16:00, Wolverhampton

Fair form on the AW but has not sparkled in first two runs since joining our yard. Extremely well-handicapped on old form as rated 77 now and has been as high as 103 last year. Jockey can also take off 5lbs so that helps too. Can't totally rule out based on current rating, but draw 10 has not been kind so likely to need a bit of luck from there.

Sans Souci Bay 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
15:25, Wolverhampton

Refused to race last time out at Southwell back in January so on a bit of a recovery mission here. Had a break since and tried with the blinkers today to try and focus him at the start. Nice draw in 5 and well handicapped on old form but need to see come confidence before passing on anything more solid.

Jeremiah    WINNER! winner

Gutsy win from Charlie's horse.


Sun 26th Jul 2020
14:30, Ascot

Ran very well from miles off the pace last time and is handicapped to win. He will love the track and this ground should suit much better. Should run well.

Chitra 
Sun 26th Jul 2020
13:20, Ascot

Tight handicap - several have similar chances but she's in good form and in yesterday's evidence seems to have the best of the draw.

Perfect Inch    WINNER! winner

Solid call from Charlie at 16/1.


Sun 26th Jul 2020
13:00, York

Hated the heavy ground at Haydock last time out and is much much better than that. I will be disappointed is she doesn't go close today.

Beauty Choice 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
18:30, Doncaster

Beauty Choice won at Chepstow last time and I think he won despite conditions not being ideal. He has run very well at Donny before and has an excellent apprentice taking weight off his back. The only question mark is the ground which he has not run on yet.

Cosmelli 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
17:20, Ascot

In good form at the moment and heads here off the back off a nice win at Newcastle. Back on the turf here is fine but would really like the rain to come - probably won't run if it doesn't rain! It's expected to though so as long as that happens it will greatly increase his chance. Each-way.

Mankayan 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
16:10, Ascot

Mankayan has really got back on track this year and won a very competitive handicap nicely last time out. The form has been franked and he will love conditions. Looks to have another leading chance.

Chiefofchiefs    WINNER! winner

Ran another solid race at Ascot.


Sat 25th Jul 2020
14:25, Ascot

Chiefofchiefs loves Ascot and has the perfect draw. The ground should be lovely and I think he will be just as effective over 7 furlongs as 6. Should run well and looks a nice e/w option in a very open race.

Bowland Park 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
13:50, Ascot

Won impressively last time and deserves a shot at some black type - will need to show further improvement against some that have already shown form in Group races.

Rum Baba 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
13:30, York

Rum Baba was disappointing last time out at Kempton but they went no pace and turned it into a sprint and that didn’t suit him. He should love the track and ground and I think a big field will help. Hopefully he will fire today.

Outrage 
Sat 25th Jul 2020
12:30, Newmarket

Race didn't pan out well last time for him but showed the old desire remains and this is perhaps a little easier.

Beat The Judge    WINNER! winner

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


Fri 24th Jul 2020
19:05, Newton Abbot

Has been working nicely at home after his third on chase debut at Startford last time out. Seems in a good place after that run too and would have learned a lot from it. Conditions are fine and we think he should have a strong chance here today.

Heliaebel 
Fri 24th Jul 2020
15:20, Newmarket

Has been a big disappointment this year and has not really progressed as a 3 year-old. However, she worked the other day in a visor and it was without doubt the best piece of work I have seen her do. So we have kept it on for today! It still takes a huge leap of faith to be backing her after recent runs on the track, but hopefully we will see more than we have so far this year - if the headgear works like it does at home.

Global Hope 
Fri 24th Jul 2020
12:35, Newmarket

Lucky as we've been able to get another top jockey to ride - this time James Doyle. Ran well last time to be third at Yarmouth - stayed on well that day so we were pleased of that return to form. Dropped a pound helps and slight ease in grade will give the horse a much better chance. In good order at home and hopeful of a decent each-way run with the horses seemingly in fine order at the moment. Each-way.

Gas Monkey    WINNER! winner

Top effort from Julia's horse.


Thu 23rd Jul 2020
19:30, Sandown

Seemed to run to his rating last time - we were hoping that this race would divide so not sure the big field will suit. The track and trip will be ideal though. He will need luck in running but he is in good form at home so just hopeful of a good run.

Hollywood Road 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
19:30, Sandown

Nice comeback run at Windsor recently. Hopeful of a nice step forward today. Looks an open affair so no shock if the horse ran better than odds suggest.

Thechildren'strust 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
18:30, Sandown

In good form at home. Track could suit him well with 7lbs off his back tonight. Good e/w chance.

Holiday Magic 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
18:30, Sandown

Not been firing of late so switching to the turf to see if that can spark something. First run at the track but no reason why it won't suit, but we've been done no favours with the draw (14) so going to be a very tall order from there. Just be happy with a bit of old sparkle and go from there.

Global Esteem    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner but still a solid run off a break - one to note next time.


Thu 23rd Jul 2020
17:55, Sandown

Fair form from his three runs to date but into a handicap here today helps and has been gelded since his last run too. The step back up to 7f will help and should also like the stiffer finish here. Better expected but likely to improve for this and need the run after around 6 months off.

Saigon Suzi  
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
17:25, Sandown Park

Showed a bit of promise on debut at Salisbury and should take another step forward in her development here.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to grab third.


Thu 23rd Jul 2020
16:20, Sandown

Is better than that last run but in fairness it was a better race than this so the drop back in grade will help. Likes to run up with the pace and we've a fair drawn here in stall 5. The cheekpieces are on here today for the first time too and we're hopeful they will help. Hopeful of better, but the main concern would be the big weight (9-7) as we are joint-topweight here. Agent Shiftwell the one we've all got to beat, but feel we've got an average e/w chance here.

Crosse Fire 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
14:20, Pontefract

Ignore the last run as fluffed the start by rearing up when the gates opened. Has improved for that return run at Ripon off a break though. Up slightly in grade here but we get in here with a low weight - just 8-9. We are, however, running from 2lbs out of the handicap as a result. CD winner at the track helps and turf rating is very attractive based on his AW rating so based on that hard to rule out, but does need to prove himself still on the turf with just 2 wins from 41 grass starts. Small e/w chance with the stiffer track a plus.

The Lion Man 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
13:40, Uttoxeter

No great hopes for this one today. Has ability but it does all have to go his way, as he is not the most resolute individual! However he is working very well at home, and conditions should suit so be delighted with a solid run and build from there.

Timoshenko 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
12:35, Uttoxeter

Was a prolific flat winner and won well on hurdling debut over course and distance. He's come out of that well and should improve for that experience. It'll be harder to carry a penalty today and give weight away to the others but he shouldn't be too far away.

Jolyon 
Thu 23rd Jul 2020
12:35, Uttoxeter

Had three runs on the flat but is having his hurdles debut here today. Jumps well enough at home and fit and well. But taking on some slightly more experienced sorts here so really just be happy with a solid first run over the sticks and go from there.

Alex Gracie 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
19:00, Catterick

Second runner in the race for us and looks our better chance - has run second behind the same horse the last twice but that runner is not in this time. Off the same as last time and first career run on the turf here today. Will be suited by the quick ground though and is in good order at home. If taking to the track then should have a fair chance of hitting the frame - Each-way.

Gossip 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
19:00, Catterick

Well-bred filly that had fair form when with Martyn Meade - only had four career runs and having debut for the yard today. 2lbs lower than last turf run and Jonathan Fisher can take off 5lbs more. Should be more to come and lower rating will give her a better chance. Small e/w chance but we'll learn more here.

Anglo Saxson    WINNER! winner

Another top TQ View winner this month - Great call from Charlie.


Wed 22nd Jul 2020
16:20, Yarmouth

Ran really well last time out at Bath and this looks a much weaker race. I think he has the speed to drop back to 7f and he has run well at the track before - solid chance.

Look At Him 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
15:40, Bath

Yet to set the world alight since coming to ours from the Jo Hughes yard - this will be his third run though so likely to be more competitive once into handicaps, while after running too free over the 1m2f trip last time this drop to a mile should see them go faster and that can hopefully get him to settle better. We'll learn more today.

Approve The Dream 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
15:20, Yarmouth

Improved for the fitting of blinkers last time but didn't see out the 7f. So we are dropping back to 6f today, which will hopefully make the difference. Having said that, the favourite - Bold Decision - may be hard to beat if following up it's last run/win. We've still got a decent e/w chance though.

Trixie Waterbury 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
15:10, Bath

Fair debut run at Leicester over 6f but got a bit outpaced that day so we are stepping her up to a mile here and should be more at home. Hood is on today too and slowly away last time and will hopefully help her focus. Work in progress still though and will be better once handicapped.

Winter Snowdrop    WINNER! winner

Solid e/w call from Julia


Wed 22nd Jul 2020
13:50, Yarmouth

Can be forgiven for her last run as there were no stalls that day and she just ran too free. She tries and is normally consistent, while she seems in good form at home. A good 7lb apprentice on board today and we hope she has an each-way chance.

American Dreamer 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
13:20, Yarmouth

A horse that came to us from the Jamie Osborne yard and was last seen jumping just a few weeks ago. Back on the flat here and should be more at home on the quicker ground. We also feel the drop back to 1m2f will help and the hood is on to help him keep his mind on the job. However, very much a learning outing for us here with the likely winner the in-form Alpine Mistral.

Ride And Prejudice 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
13:20, Yarmouth

Didn't show much last run after a break - trying a new trip but really needs to show some improvement before following.

Riviera Belle 
Wed 22nd Jul 2020
12:45, Yarmouth

Has been progressing slowly as she steps up in trip and this further increase in distance should suit her well. She will like the track and the ground too. I would be disappointed if she didn't go close here today.

Note Bleu 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
20:45, Sandown

First turf start today at Sandown having been running on the all weather and winning his novice race at Kempton when making all. Did not fare so well next start on handicap debut but on his first start on grass I hope to see a better result today. There look to be several improving types in this race today and I think competitive. On this first turf start I would think best-watched as I would prefer a little less firm in the ground.

Croeso Cymraeg    WINNER! winner

Top winner for James and the team.


Tue 21st Jul 2020
18:05, Sandown

Will be better for last run that came off a break - did well that day to be a fair 5th and dropped 2lbs for that helps. We feel the drop back to 1m2f will suit and the firm ground is fine. Bit to answer on the turf with best runs coming on the AW to date, but has only had 4 runs on the grass so should hopefully have more to come. Jockey knows the horse well so head here with an each-way chance with Harlow looking the one we've got to aim at.

Craneur 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
17:35, Sandown

Is better for recent run at Kempton when fifth of 13 and not beaten too far - That was his first outing for around 9 months. Rated a pound lower on the turf and has run well off this mark over this course and distance in the past too. All ground is fine and the drop back to 1m2f is a plus. With Tom Marquand riding too then looks to have a fair few things in his favour so in a race with many chance must have an each-way chance.

Engrave 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
17:35, Sandown

Engrave is best-suited by the 1m2f trip that she'll get here. Looks a wide open handicap with much of the form of the others on the AW so maybe a bit to prove. We is well and we hope she has an each-way chance off a light weight and Dylan also able to claim 3lbs.

Barrier Reef 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
16:50, Chepstow

Going to be hard for us all to topple the in-form Prescott horse - however, our runner still heads here with a fair e/w chance after a nice fourth at Chelmsford last time out. Has come on for that run and with jockey Charlie Price able to claim 5lbs then we are that much better off than last time with regards to the weights too. Trip, ground and track are all fine and hopeful of an e/w run - anything else a plus.

Mister Tickle 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
16:30, Stratford upon Avon

First run for me and I am hoping that decent ground will be more to his liking than when he last ran on heavy ground in January on his first race over fences. Ran well on decent ground over hurdles at Fontwell previously so it does look as though ground could be a contributory factor. Hoping it will ride as decent ground with no firmness. Pleased with his progress at home and after a break away from the track I am hoping MISTER TICKLE will run a respectable race today. 

A Day Of Mischief 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
16:25, Sandown

Not the best debut run at Lingfield - fluffed the start, hung and ran very green. That would have taught her a lot, but still very much a 'work in progress' horse that will do better in time and also once handicapped.

Seaborn 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
15:30, Stratford upon Avon

SEABORN was never placed in juvenile hurdles but he subsequently carved out a decent career on the flat winning five times for his previous trainer - Pat Chamings. Off a very attractive mark on his handicap debut and if he can transfer his flat ability over to hurdles then this could put SEABORN in with strong claims. The top one (Perfect City) is the worry but he has to give plenty of weight to SEABORN. Pleased with SEABORN'S work at home though and looking forward to getting going with him over hurdles.

Some Day Soon 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
15:00, Stratford upon Avon

Was a prolific novice hurdler last summer - winning four on the bounce and being placed in a couple of Graded races. He was just touched off on handicap debut last week and is due to go up 4lbs as a result so runs here off his previous mark. This drop in trip might not be ideal but if this race doesn't come too soon then he looks to have a great opportunity of getting his head in front again.

High Renown 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
13:55, Stratford upon Avon

Showed promise in a couple of bumpers on softer ground for a previous yard. We've done his wind and he jumps like a bunny. This looks quite competitive and he'll improve for this experience but he should run a nice race on hurdling debut.

West Coast Flyer 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
13:20, Stratford upon Avon

West Coast Flyer won two novice hurdles last summer and I had intended to send him back over hurdles initially this season but at this time of year he would be giving plenty of weight away and his jumping is very good, so as he’s a thorough galloper I thought fences should suit him more. He is a big good-looking horse who came to me after a busy flat campaign, he had a good break after his last run where he ran very flat. I’m hopeful he can improve for that holiday and as a one-paced horse I think fences will suit him as long as he can get into a good rhythm.

Royal Bassett 
Tue 21st Jul 2020
12:50, Stratford upon Avon

Only had 4 career runs an they've all been on the flat - highly-tried in a good staying Ascot race last time out but is having hurdles debut today. Tongue-tie will help and fit and well after recent runs so a fair run expected. Jumps well  but will of course learn a lot from this and likely to be better in time and once handicapped over the sticks.

Blackcurantspangle 
Mon 20th Jul 2020
18:30, Windsor

Is still very immature and hasn't quite worked the game out yet. He was too keen last time and is doing everything the wrong way around. Hopefully we can ride a race on him and get him to finish well. He will be better once he can run in handicaps.

The Warrior 
Mon 20th Jul 2020
17:30, Windsor

Has been running okay this year - winning twice. Certainly well handicapped on his old form - rated 62 today and we've Georgia taking off 5lbs too - as once rated as high as 90. 8 year-old now and still has ability in and around this level - for sure. Hoping the ground isn't too quick but the overnight rain would have hopefully helped, but there is all day for it to dry out more. Likes to be held up and be aimed at a strong pace so small e/w claims if getting that in the race and the luck in-running. But might just improve for this after a month or so off.

Anti Cool 
Mon 20th Jul 2020
15:10, Market Rasen

Not getting any younger at 11 but fairly lightly-raced for his age and still showing up well at home. On his best form should have a chance and is a proven CD winner at the track. First run for a good while (256 days) so might just need and no matter what will improve for the outing - however, the trip and conditions are right for him so we are still hopeful of at least a place.

Czech Her Out 
Mon 20th Jul 2020
12:35, Market Rasen

Much better last time out at Stratford when winning on her return run. The tongue-tie seemed to help that day so not surprise it's on again here. Into a handicap for the first time here and has come out of that last race well - we'll know more about her mark after this but conditions will suit and unlike some of the others we at least head here with a recent run under our belts. Overall, probably more is needed and we'll learn a lot more here but must have an each-way chance still.

Pisgah Pike    WINNER! winner
Mon 20th Jul 2020
12:00, Market Rasen

Showed some promise when third on stable debut in a bumper at Ludlow. He was fourth on hurdling debut and we've tinkered with his wind over the summer, so he will be winning races in time. They favourite here will be hard to beat today so we're playing for places really unless the jolly runs below par.

Included 
Sun 19th Jul 2020
16:50, Southwell

Ran very well on debut for us when second last week over fences - where she pulled a long way clear of the third placed horse. The handicapper has had his say so we're running back over hurdles today off the same mark as last week. She is in good form and if she can run to a similar level of form then she really shouldn't be too far away - the question is whether she can back that last run up?

Dubious Affair    WINNER! winner

Another top win for Charlie's improving stayer.


Sun 19th Jul 2020
16:30, Newbury

Has won her last two starts pretty cosily for us and seems to be improving rapidly. Track will suit, while the trip and ground will be fine too Hopefully she can go in again.

Carnwennan 
Sun 19th Jul 2020
16:00, Newbury

Ran well in the Northumberland Plate last time out but he always improves for his first race off a break. He will love the track and the ground looks perfect (I don't want it too soft). I have put cheekpieces on him to sharpen him up a bit too.

Lauberhorn Rocket    WINNER! winner

Improved effort from Tim's horse.


Sat 18th Jul 2020
20:05, Bath

Disappointed us last time at Chepstow - is better than that, but the step back up in trip will help here after winning around this distance 2 runs back. Only 3lbs higher than that win and the firm ground here at Bath will be to his liking. Needs to bounce back but capable of doing so and the first-time visor should help. Small e/w chance.

Lovers Gait    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Daniel and the team - looks an exciting prospect!


Sat 18th Jul 2020
19:35, Bath

First start for the yard - shows ability at home but needs to show she has overcome stalls issues. Step up in trip should suit though.

Voice Of Calm 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
17:00, Newbury

Second runner on the day for us and our better chance. Won well at Lingfield last month off a break and has come out of that race well. We gave her a nice break to get over that and is only 4lbs higher here. Drop back to 1m maybe a tiny concern but does show enough pace so if able to stay in the mix her proven stamina - having won over 1m2f - will be an asset. Competitive, but looks to have a fair each-way chance.

A Day Of Mischief 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
16:35, Bath

The Michael Bell horse - Twilight Heir - sets a good standard here. Our horse was down the field on debut at Lingfield and ran green that day being slowly away too. Will need to break better over this shorter trip, but very much another learning day for the horse.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
16:30, Newbury

Is very consistent and seems very well at home - he has run well at Newbury in the past and does like the straight mile. We would hope he has an e/w chance again here.

Dark Shot 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
16:10, York

Dropping down the ratings after a string of below-par runs. Dangerous to rule out off this sort of rating - lowest career mark - but on a long losing run and down the field last time out at Windsor. Back up to 6f to see if that sparks something.

Mayfair Spirit 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
15:40, York

Has been a total star for the yard and continues to defy the handicapper with every win. The step up in trip has clearly brought about some more improvement and he will love the track. He is thriving at the moment so hopeful of another solid run.

Professor Galant 
Sat 18th Jul 2020
13:40, Newbury

Nice filly that's been doing well at home but first day at school today so will learn a lot. George's 5lb claim an obvious help but just be happy with a solid run and go from there - but a nice horse to look out for in the future.

Prince Of Tides 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
19:55, Haydock

Has struggled so far but I don't think I have trained him well - ran over too far on debut and shouldn't have put a visor on him second time out. I hope to see a bit more from him today but life will become easier in handicaps.

Divine Queen 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
19:35, Leicester

She is a lovely Kingman filly. She has had the three runs in tough maidens and we think she's been given a very good handicap mark. Track, ground and distance should be fine and we will be disappointed is she's is not in the top three here at a good price!

Salsa Dip 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
19:25, Haydock

Learning on the job but needs to get into handicaps to be competitive - will qualify after this run.

Pettinger

Only third run for the yard after coming from the Charles Hills team. Did well on first run for us (4th) but didn't build on that last time at Doncaster, albeit in what looked a slightly harder race. Stepping up to 1m here (from 7f) and dropped a pound, while we feel the three week break has helped. She also didn't have the hood on last time (wore it two runs back) so with that back on today we are hoping that will also help. Each-way chance.

Parkers Boy 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
19:05, Leicester

First run for us and a change in trip. Has been sprinting, but hard to see him at that trip from his work at home. May be that we have got it wrong, but a wind op should help him too. Definitely a watching brief today though.

Valletta Sunset 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
18:05, Leicester

Ran a promising race last time - he has come out of that well too and seems to have improved again. This looks quite a weak race so we think he has an each-way chance at a big price

Rolfe Rembrandt    WINNER! winner
Fri 17th Jul 2020
16:55, Haydock

We might all be hard-pressed to topple the Andrew Balding runner - Imperial Force - who sets a high standard on what we've seen so far. Our horse has done well though from his two runs (placed both times) and we feel the step up to 6f (from 5f) will suit. Place claims.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
16:35, Leicester

Pacey sort that is having his third career run today. Wasn't beaten too far last time considering he took a bit of a hold and didn't really settle. Likely to be better once handicapped, but will gain more experience here - the race looks likely to be fought out between the Tate and Varian runners.

Hydraulic 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
15:50, Chepstow

Needs this run to qualify for a mark over which he'll be able to race over furhter - which will be his game.

Donald Llewellyn 
Fri 17th Jul 2020

Best watched on this occasion.

Stormingin 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
15:20, Chepstow

Competitive race, reasonably well drawn which helps. Big field which also suits. Any ease in the ground would be helpful which should give him a reasonable chance.

Mayfair Pompette 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
14:20, Chepstow

Has run well twice this year but hit the post both times - however, I think she wants some cut in the ground and today's conditions should suit him better. We like her a lot and I would be disappointed if she doesn't go close.

Olivia Brend 
Fri 17th Jul 2020
12:00, Beverley

Really happy with her debut run at Newmarket (4th) - was thrown in at the deep end that day (Listed race). In much calmer waters here and shows plenty of speed to suggest this drop back to 5f will suit. Hoping for a good run and should be going close and really hope she's good enough to win.

Mr Chua    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Thu 16th Jul 2020
20:00, Sandown

Got nailed near the finish last time out at Lingfield when looking the likely winner. Has only been raised a pound for that run and top jockey Oisin Murphy takes over. With that also being his first run after a wind operation that made the run even better and we now also know this 1m6f trip is within range on the flat. Should go well.

Jumping Cats 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
20:00, Sandown

Yet to find his form for us. Hopeful a stiffer test today will be to his liking but needs to improve and show a bit more in the track really to be more confident.

Alramz 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
20:00, Sandown

Returning from just over 4 months off so expected to improve for this - but is ready to run and does show ability at home. Pluses are we get in with a very low weight but needs to improve on what we've seen on the track. Would also have liked a bit softer ground so any rain will help - so just be delighted with an improved effort and go from there.

Flat Stone 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
20:00, Sandown

First time in a handicap today so that will suit and benefitted from his last run as that came off over a year off. Hopeful of a step forward here but still a work in progress horse. 

Summer Valley 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
19:30, Sandown

Improved effort last time out at Windsor - close fourth. This stiffer test will suit here at Sandown. Hopeful of an e/w chance in what is an open-looking race. Jason Watson rides.

Fighting Don 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
19:30, Sandown

Not sparkled as yet on the track but will be better for last run as that came off a 6 month break and the horse is 3lbs lower this time. More needed but the slight drop back in trip will help after not quite staying the extra 1 1/2 furlongs last time. Be happy with a step forward and build from there.

Silver Cliffs 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
19:00, Sandown

Lightly-races with just two career runs so should have more to come -  is also first time in a handicap today. Has run some nice races so far though, but quite a competitive race - hopefully we'll still have an e/w chance.

Bright Valentine 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
19:00, Sandown

First start for us and from a family we know well. Goes nicely and sure to find her races but won't run if the ground dries out

Outrage 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
16:55, Sandown

Ran better than the result perhaps suggests following his lengthy absence last time out - tiring late on. Normally needs a couple of runs to really get going but has run well here before.

Seneca Chief 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
16:20, Sandown

Upped in class after his two easy wins last month as his mark has shot up. Has to prove he has enough ability to be competitive in this grade.

Phoebus Lescribaa 
Thu 16th Jul 2020
15:15, Uttoxeter

First run for us, and also our first runner jumping of the new campaign! Seems well at home, but can be a bit of a monkey and does just need things to go his way to make his best effort.

 

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner

Battled on well to take this at 6/1.


Wed 15th Jul 2020
20:45, Kempton Park

Has run some fair races here and though only a one-time winner he has plenty of ability and is on a low mark. Needs to get his confidence but should have every chance in this grade if he can hold it together and the race goes well for him.

Halfacrown 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
20:45, Kempton Park

First run for us so a bit of a fact finder. Trip could be on the sharp side but we hope he can run on and snatch a place. We shall learn something either way!

Lady Morpheus    WINNER! winner

Top call from Gary.


Wed 15th Jul 2020
20:15, Kempton Park

Well drawn in stall 5. Not been out since January, but has been ticking over nicely at home and if everything goes right as often likes to come from behind, should have every chance - is one pound lower than last time out too. 

Vulcan 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

Ran with the choke out last time over the longer trip so had little chance of lasting it out. That came off an 8 month break so can be expected to improve for it and also dropping him back to 1m will help. Given him time to get over that run and done well at home since. Form prior to that last run was progressive so if running back that sort of level and settling better would have an each-way chance.

Captain Haddock 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
19:15, Kempton Park

Debut run here so like a lot of mine on their first outing can be expected to improve for this.

Rum Baba 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
18:10, Kempton Park

Rum Baba ran much better at Kempton last time out but we felt he travelled as good as anything in the race before not finding much off the bridle. A drop to 7f should suit him well and he is also drawn well. Would be disappointed if he isn't thereabouts.

Vegas Boy 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
17:10, Kempton Park

Ran well last time at HQ (3rd) but we are dropping in grade here and the horse is also 2lbs lower. Conditions will suit and leading jockey in Tom Marquand booked. We've several good chances today, but if pushed I'd say this is my best chance.

Cassidy Jo 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
16:20, Catterick

Well-bred filly that should do better now into a handicap and also upped in trip to 1m4f. First run back since January so no matter what will improve for this but pleasing at home and - as mentioned - the longer trip should bring out some improvement. Each-way.

Capla Spirit 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
15:40, Yarmouth

Ran okay last time considering the start was fluffed a bit. Should be sharper this time as that came off a 3 month break and a lot more experience in the saddle today (John Egan). If all 8 run it's another of ours today that can run well and must have fair e/w claims.

Lady Quickstep 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
15:40, Yarmouth

Second runner in the race for us and can't be totally ruled out. Going the right way after two runs back from a break and now 6lbs lower than first run back last month. George's 5lb claim a further help and the form that of having run the classy Liberty Beach close twice last season would give her a great chance. Each-way.

Habanero Star 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
15:20, Catterick

Nice filly that has done well in her two runs to date - we expected a bit better last time at Leicester but the stiff track probably was against her - is better than that. Luke Morris, who rode her on debut, is back in the saddle so that helps too. Freshened up too with a small break and in a race that has a 'half and half' feel to it we are not without place claims.

Global Hope 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
14:40, Yarmouth

Did well at Newbury two runs ago to win but failed to follow that up on the AW at Kempton last time. Does seem to be a bit more at home on the turf (3 wins) so the return to Yarmouth, where he's run well in the past (CD winner, is a plus. Only 3lbs higher than Newbury win but George booked to ride and take off 5lbs from the saddle so actually slightly better off. Needs to put that last run behind him but not without a chance back on the grass - each-way.

Dont Tell Claire 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
13:40, Yarmouth

Ran well to finish second on both starts this season - both times shaping as if this step up to 7f will suit.

Slade King 
Wed 15th Jul 2020
12:35, Yarmouth

Thought it would be a very easy race but it looks like a very, very tough contest now with many chances. Hoping the first-time visor will eke out a bit more improvement as will have to 'up his game' to have a chance now with some big flat yards in attendance.

Inn With The Gin 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
18:05, Ripon

Crosse Fire 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
17:00, Ripon

Grand servant - this will be his 114th career run. Rated much much higher on the AW, where most of his wins have come. A bit to answer on the grass with just 2 wins from 40 runs but is running off a 30lbs lower rating on the grass than when last seen on the AW back in December. Fit and well at home and with Jonathan Fisher taking off 5lbs too then off this mark and in this grade would be foolish to ignore even though his best form is on the AW. Each-way.

Aquascape 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
15:40, Bath

Improved last time out at Goodwood on first run back since having wind surgery - when a close second. That was only his third career run so will be a lot more to come. Firm ground and the trip are fine and looks like we head here with a leading chance. The Meade runner - Tenfold - is the clear main danger, who is closely rated to us, but we should make a bold bid and expecting to go close.

Makety 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
15:25, Southwell

Makety is a very talented mare who has not exactly had the rub of the green as yet, she’s been a consistent type who loves good ground - which she should get today. She was another horse that we were unable to run because of the soft conditions last winter, she was ready to run when racing halted. Makety won a point to point bumper before joining me and I therefore expected her to be a thorough stayer, she didn’t get home in her first ever novice hurdle over 2m 5f at Hereford and thereafter she has bumped into some decent horses including Epitamte at Exeter..... well placed by the trainer!! Makety is a very honest mare, she’s a fantastic jumper and I’m hoping this season she can fulfil her promise. Liam Heard, who knows the horse well, rides and despite 2 or 3 others with similar looking chances I'm looking forward to a nice run and should go well.
Good Luck Charm 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
15:10, Bath

Not getting any younger at 11, but still showing the right attitude at home. Fourth last time out at Chepstow was a fair effort as ran well for much of the way. In the right sort of grade and dropped 2lbs lower than last time. Any rain would help which would give him every reasonable e/w chance with Rhys riding and claiming 7lbs again.

Duchess Of Avon 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
14:35, Bath

If everything works out and gets a clear run in the race (likes to be held up), should have every chance. Has improved at home after her recent 5th at Kempton as that came off a break and was only beaten just over 2 lengths too. Rated 1lb lower on the grass.

Albatross Reach 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
14:05, Bath

Well-bred 3 year-old that is having his debut here - goes well enough at home and should be fine on the ground and over this 1m trip. Will, of course, learn a lot from this though, but one to follow as he gets more experience.

Celestial Point 
Tue 14th Jul 2020
12:30, Bath

First run for the stable and debut run for the horse. Fair filly, but probably best-watched on this occasion as will be better with more experience.

Ubla 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
20:45, Kempton Park

CD winner here at the track but is returning from a 135 day break so I expect the horse will just need the run here today - also not the best draw in 14.

Treble Clef 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
20:45, Kempton Park

Needed the run last time out when 6th of 9 here. Has decent form here at the track and this 1m trip suits him well. Drawn well too in 3 so would not be surprised if he ran a nice race a big price.

Age of Wisdom 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

Quirky character but he has managed 7 career wins including over hurdles. Shaped as though he might have just needed a run three weeks ago after a break from the track so hopefully he might be good enough to be there at the finish. Harry Bentley has won on him before and gets on well with him.

Rydan 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

RYDAN has every chance today as he ran a sound enough race recently at Lingfield over an inadequate trip. Has won over the trip here at Kempton a couple of years ago. A couple of pounds lower and with a claiming jockey taking off a few pounds it could just open up his chances. It is a shame that RYDAN has to take on his stablemate AGE OF WISDOM, but I expect both horses to have place claims and I have difficulty splitting them.

Mukha Magic 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
19:15, Kempton Park

Ran a cracker at Royal Ascot last time out when third in the Queen Alexandra Stakes - that was clearly his best run to date and seems to still be improving. Back into a handicap here and rated 7lbs higher than when last seen in a handicap, but George's 5lb claim helps. In summary is in great form and should run well, but just concerned about the big weight.

Quloob

Moosmee

Just a fair debut for us and not sure to be suited by drop back in trip. Still learning about him but he goes nicely enough and sure to find his races.

Caen Na Coille    WINNER! winner

Nice each-way call from Charlie - was 20/1 in the morning too.


Mon 13th Jul 2020
17:10, Kempton Park

Ran poorly at Windsor last time out and before that nothing went right at Chelmsford. She was found to be in season at Windsor and I have a feeling this filly might be better on the AW anyway. She is well drawn (3) and should have no problem with the trip - so at around 20/1 looks a nice price.

Secret Art 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
17:10, Kempton Park

I would have preferred to take advantage of SECRET ART'S mark on the grass rather than his higher all weather mark but ground conditions are not being favourable at present. Probably needs a lesser mark to figure but he is working well enough at home to suggest he could give a good account of himself if he can overcome a poor draw.

Beat The Breeze 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
16:45, Windsor

Track and trip will suit and reunited with rider who has gone closest on him. Might not run if the ground dries up another point but sure to find his races as time goes on.

Hollywood Road 
Mon 13th Jul 2020

HOLLYWOOD ROAD has been away from the track for a long time so just might need this today. Working well at home though, but I would not want the going to be quicker that the official good, good to firm in places.

Junkanoo 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
14:40, Windsor

Ran okay on the all weather a few weeks ago and JUNKANOO has come on for that first run of the season. Showed some promise last season so I hope to see a decent run from him today and looks a nice e/w price in an open contest. 

Corazon Espinado 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
14:10, Windsor

Ran well enough on Derby day and sure to find his races. Track and trip should suit him and no surprise if he comes back to his best form here.

Silent Approval 
Mon 13th Jul 2020
12:25, Windsor

Nice type and looking forward to her first outing. I will say best-watched though as I expect her to progress from this first run. 

King Cool 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
17:20, Bangor

Ran below-par last time at Fontwell - is better than that, but really needs to bounce back on the track before being more confident so probably best watched this time.

Luxford 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
16:05, Lingfield Park

Ran well last time out at Chelmsford (3rd) and can be expected to have come on for that. Same mark here today and same trip so with a repeat of that run and the expected improvement looks to have a fair each-way chance - probably one of our better chances on the day.

Some Day Soon    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Jamie's horse.


Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:45, Bangor

Won four novice hurdles last summer on the bounce, which is never easy. He was then third and fourth in two Grade 2 Novices and wasn't beaten far at all. This opening mark of 135 doesn't look overly harsh on what he has achieved and he is certainly working to that kind of mark at home. He is fresh and well and I am looking forward to seeing him on the track again. He shouldn't be too far away, albeit this looks an open event. 

Fume    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Gary at 33/1.


Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:35, Lingfield Park

Disappointed last time out on return run at Lingfield, but that was his first run back from a wind op and also from a break. Should be better for it and the longer trip here (up to 2m) will suit. Capable of better and we feel an improved run here but does need to bounce back.

Que Quieres 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:35, Lingfield Park

Best form is at Chelmsford and looked to be progressing in the Winter. Regressed in recent starts and needs to get back on an upward curve. If he does there is no reason why he should not go well in this ordinary event.

Lemon Song 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us and similar chance to our other runner. Delighte with his debut effort at Kempton last month (4th of 11) and wasn't beaten far that day. Hard to pick between my two as he should also learn more today but have place claims. The Balding, Simcock and Gosden runners are the obvious ones though.

Cafe Milano 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

Took minor honours through the Winter on several occasions in maidens and a bit unlucky not to have got his head in front so far. Extra distance here likely to help and rider knows him well so should be thereabouts though stable well below par.

Gentleman At Arms    WINNER! winner

Saw it out well from the front.


Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

Fair debut run at Kempton last month when 5th of 11. Has come out of that race well and with the right improvement should have an each-way chance, but still likely to improve for this run and experience again.

Atailof Two Cities 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
15:05, Lingfield Park

Not shown much in opening two runs so really just be happy with a step forward here and give the horse some more experience - likely to be better once getting a handicap mark.

Mr Dorrell Sage 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
13:45, Bangor

Dorrell has been a largely disappointing horse but that has been mainly due to wind issues and last winter was pretty much a write off because of the unsuitably soft ground, he was being readied for a spring campaign when racing was halted. Dorrell is a seriously good work horse at home and his schooling has always been fast and accurate which only adds to our frustration when he can’t seem to put it all together on a racecourse. Dorrell can be a bit of a gassy horse and I have changed the way I train him to try and get him to relax more and breathe properly, we can’t be certain that it will make any difference but he does seem to be in cracking form, my head lad Stefan rides him every day and he has done a very good job with him. Overall we are delighted to get him back to the track and even though he's sure to improve for this after 220 days off, he's not without each-way claims.
Big Jimbo    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well for the e/w money.


Sun 12th Jul 2020
13:10, Bangor

Had three runs on the flat but the plan has been to go hurdling - has schooled well at home and if staying this much longer trip than he's been running over on the level then would have an each-way chance.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
13:00, Lingfield Park

Not shown much in two starts so far though stable out of form and she was very green first time. Has done some good homework and sure to find her races so probably do better handicapping in what looks a tough race here.

Roundabout Magic    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Simon and the team.


Sun 12th Jul 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

Most of his career success is all here and never runs a bad race. Hold up style of racing means he always needs luck in running but back in this grade he can never be left out of calculations.

Fairy Fast 
Sun 12th Jul 2020
12:00, Lingfield Park

Ground was too firm last time at Lingfield so the return to the AW will help. In good order at home, however, the wide draw (10) is no help to us as likes to get on with things and might have to use up a lot of energy in the early part of the race. So, likely to be a big ask from there.

Rudy Lewis 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
20:45, Salisbury

Rudy Lewis finally broke his maiden tag at Wolves last time needing every inch of the 10 furlongs to dead heat. The horse he dead-heated with has won since and we think the step up in trip will suit. The only worry is his pedigree doesn’t scream 12 furlongs, but his run style does - so we'll see!

Beat The Breeze 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
20:15, Salisbury

Probably more effective at 10f than shorter and looked like he was about to win on resumption. Not built on that yet and won't run if the ground gets too fast but sure to find his races and no surprise if he runs well here.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Well done to Gay's popular stayer.


Sat 11th Jul 2020
20:00, Newcastle

Loves it here at Newcastle and heads here off the back of another big run when a close 4th in the Northumberland Plate at the end of last month. Has been raised 3lbs for that but George continues in the saddle to claim 5lbs and that obviously helps. Remains in good form at home since that run and at a track we know he loves then we head here with a great chance - albeit in what looks a tight little race. Should go well.

Saigon Suzi 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
18:45, Salisbury

Looking forward to getting this filly on track. Has been encouraging at home and sure she’ll be winning races in due course albeit bound to improve for today’s experience and some decent looking rivals. Will probably want at least a mile too.

First Prophet 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
17:05, Salisbury

First Prophet was impressive on debut at Newbury and then had a long list of excuses at Ascot (ground, quick turnaround, no cover). We have taken our time and he worked very nicely on Wednesday. Salisbury will suit him well and he is well drawn. Hoping for a big run

Royal Bassett 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
16:25, Ascot

Probably a bit high in the handicap after good effort last time. This is a tough call for him, running against three last time out in form winners, but he goes there fit & well & the trip should suit. Light weight helps as does the jockey claim, plus any more rain would be a bonus too.

Agent of Fortune 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
14:05, Ascot

Done well on the AW - winning 8 times in total and 4 times this year. On the turf today and in a better race so we'll see how she goes and how good she is. Tom Marquand booked to ride so that helps. Should run better than a 20/1 shot, but really today in a race like this she'll probably need to step forward again.

Emenem 
Sat 11th Jul 2020
13:30, Ascot

Stays well and been waiting for better ground so hopefully it won't dry up too much. Seems in good form and well handicapped these days so no surprise to see him go well at a big price.

Capricorn Prince    WINNER! winner

Top 9/1 TQ View winner !!


Fri 10th Jul 2020
20:05, Bath

First run back on grass after success on the AWT. Returned last month with a solid third at Chelmsford and has come out of that race well. Had plenty of time to get over that outing and well at home since. Trip and track will be fine and so expecting a good run from Capricorn Prince as he should also appreciate the good ground.

French De Guye 
Fri 10th Jul 2020
16:20, Market Rasen

Hoping for a solid run today to stand him in good stead for a future career over obstacles, which should see him in a better light.

Compadre 
Fri 10th Jul 2020
15:50, Market Rasen

Generally runs well round here and seems in good form at home. Conditions will be fine and should be thereabouts today.

Arfinn Rose 
Fri 10th Jul 2020
14:50, Musselburgh

Goes well enough at home and shows plenty of speed, but first day at school today. The sharp track should suit though. I also have his full brother - Shackabooah - who has run with plenty of credit on his first two starts. His half sister - Three Grands - was also a decent filly and won first time up at Windsor. He's done enough fitness-wise, but he's not the most straight forward so hoping he'll learn a lot from today.

Adrrastos 
Fri 10th Jul 2020
14:40, Market Rasen

Adrrastos has been a prolific winner for us over the years and is off a career high mark here now.  However, the step up in trip may unlock a bit more improvement and he's had the benefit of a run on the flat to make him sharper, and this has been the plan since he missed a crack at the Topham at the Aintree Festival.  However, this race looks mightily competitive as you would expect for the Summer Plate and we'll need plenty of luck in-running around this tight track.

Floral Bouquet won a couple of novice hurdles and ended up in the grip of the handicapper, whilst struggling with soft ground.  She is working her way down to a realistic mark from which she can win again, and we've been waiting for this summer to get going with her.  She may just need this first run back after quite a layoff, but she's done plenty of work at home and should run her race.  However, I can see her improving off the back of this seasonal debut.

Avorisk Et Perils 
Thu 9th Jul 2020
19:30, Chepstow

First run back on grass. Very good run last time when winning on the AW at Lingfield. Stays a bit further than this 1m trip so that will be a plus in the closing stages. Has also come out of that race well and if everything works out, should have a good chance.

Jungle Boogaloo 
Thu 9th Jul 2020
18:30, Chepstow

Disappointing so far this season. First run on turf for the stable so probably best-watched on this occasion until we see a bit more on the track.

Beauty Choice    WINNER! winner

Top info from Charlie and another nice TQ View winner this month.


Thu 9th Jul 2020
18:00, Chepstow

Was the last horse off the bridle at Haydock last time out in a competitive race over 7f and that prompted me to drop him back to 6ff here. The more rain the better but he is well at home and looking at the race feel he should go close.

Chitra    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Daniel.


Thu 9th Jul 2020
17:30, Chepstow

Taking a chance up slightly in class against some rivals who - although they have plenty of ability, maybe have a few question marks against them at the moment. So perhaps the race isn't as strong as it could be, given the grade. The rain has stayed away and hopefully continues to do so as Chitra is probably at her best on a sharper track than this one and although she handles good-to-soft she's better when it's quicker ground.

Spice War 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
20:40, Newbury

Spice War won a couple of low grade races on the all-weather before showing promise in his first run over hurdles at Kempton, he didn’t back that up on his next two starts so he went away for a good long holiday over the winter. He had literally just arrived back in the yard from his pre-training with Mark Palmer when racing was halted. It seemed sensible to keep him going though because he takes a lot of work to get fit. He has been in good form lately, he’s been very fresh, especially on the schooling ground.

Honorable 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
20:40, Newbury

Another one who has been disappointing on the flat. Has been working well at home though so certainly capable of better. Hopefully the track will suit well which should give Honorable a reasonable chance e/w chance and we are putting on the blinkers for the first time here to see if they help.

Rafiot 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
18:40, Newbury

Very disappointing so far and probably best watched on this occasion until we see more on the track.

Between The Waters 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
15:50, Stratford upon Avon

Won a couple of chases last summer and went up in the handicap as a result. He is a really consistent horse who will win more races over the summer. But this again looks quite competitive. Page rides and claims a handy 3lbs.

Et Moi Alors 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
14:20, Stratford upon Avon

Another of ours today that is having his first run over fences. Has subsequently schooled well at home. The McManus horse is obviously a big danger (Nineohtwooneoh), which runs under a penalty, but hopefully we have a reasonable e/w chance with his recent flat run blowing away the cobwebs.

Included    WINNER! winner

A solid effort from Jamie's horse.


Wed 8th Jul 2020
14:20, Stratford upon Avon

Is making her stable debut today - but we are hopeful she can run well. She has never won off a mark this high before, but she is fresh and well, while a recent wind op should help her improve. It looks a competitive race - as they all seem to be at the moment - but she shouldn't be too far away. Richard Johnson rides.

Czech Her Out    WINNER! winner

The tongue-tie clearly did the trick for Scu's horse.


Wed 8th Jul 2020
13:50, Stratford upon Avon

Did well back in 2019 in a few bumpers but hasn't really progressed that form over hurdles. Returns from a 204 day break so likely to improve for this but will be fine on the better ground. Trying the tongue-tie here today too, but really just be happy with a solid first run back. The race looks to rest between the main three at the head of the market.

Quiet Shy 
Wed 8th Jul 2020
13:20, Stratford upon Avon

First time over hurdles in public here today after running six times on the flat. Limited form on the level but the plan was always to go over the sticks and hoping she'll do well in time. Expected to be better once getting a handicap mark.

Beat The Judge    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third for the Gary Moore team.


Wed 8th Jul 2020
12:45, Stratford upon Avon

Ran well on the flat at Kempton last month so hopefully will be fitter than most. First time over fences today. Has schooled well at home though, but too much rain would be a concern - otherwise should have every chance as long - as I say - the ground doesn't get any worse.

Junkanoo 
Tue 7th Jul 2020
19:15, Leicester

Smokey Malone 
Tue 7th Jul 2020
16:40, Leicester

Missed the break on his first run and then ran too free on the outside so didn't finish. He seems to have improve for that run and if he can get cover this time will run a much better race - he should outrun his odds!

Prince Percy 
Tue 7th Jul 2020
13:40, Newton Abbot

Sor Hi Hi 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
20:15, Windsor

Disgraced herself last time out with virtually refusing to race. We have put the blinkers on and done plenty of stalls work which has done the trick at home, but who knows what she'll do on the track - so capable if that's sorted, but comes with risks at this stage.

Headley George 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
20:15, Windsor

Outpaced and green in a hot maiden at Lingfield on debut. Will know more tonight but this is a tough race as well and may do better once handicapped.

Salsa Dip 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
20:15, Windsor

Looking for Salsa Dip to take another step forward in his development but probably more of a horse for handicap company in due course.

Voice Of Calm 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
19:45, Windsor

Filles De Fleur 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
19:45, Windsor

May not go - we'll assess the conditions later in the day. But having first run for the yard after coming from the George Scott team. Settled in well, but very much a watching brief here until we learn a bit more about the horse.

Emenem 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
18:45, Windsor

Grand handicapper and makes his return over a minimum distance for him. Has done well this Spring and always tries hard so not easy to totally discount at a big price.

Miss Enigma 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
18:15, Windsor

Makes her debut for us and not run for some time. All of her form is on the all weather so interesting to see how she copes here but sure to come on for the run.

Dark Shot 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
17:15, Windsor

Not won since 2016 but a decent sprinter that's been running in some top handicaps. Returned at HQ last month to blow away the cobwebs in a hot G3 so this drop back into a handicap will help and starting to look well handicapped on old form. CD winner here too so that's one of the reasons we head here tonight. Seems to have come on for that last run and should be a lot more competitive here today. Overall win-to-run record not great but not without a place chance.

Maries Girl 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
17:05, Uttoxeter

Having a run for experience today. Expecting some improvement but unlikely to make the frame. Should be seen to better effect when handicapping over obstacles.

Lord Getaway 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
16:30, Uttoxeter

Back over fences today and on his best form has a chance. Track (course winner), trip and ground should suit so expecting a good run and seems well at home.

Timoshenko    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well - looks a nice prospect for the Snowden yard.


Mon 6th Jul 2020
13:25, Uttoxeter

Timoshenko was very useful on the level (with Sir Mark Prescott) and won 6 on the bounce - graduating though the handicap ranks having started off on a basement mark. He improved with each step up in trip on the flat and will undoubtedly want further than this 2m over the sticks in time. However, he jumps nicely and has the ability to win over this trip before going up in distance, where more progression can be unlocked. I find most flat horses improve for their hurdling debuts as well, so whatever he achieves today can - and will - be improved on throughout the course of the summer.

Bringthehousedown 
Mon 6th Jul 2020
13:25, Uttoxeter

Bringthehousedown or Joey as he is known at home - arrived with us last winter thanks to Ron Hodges who recommended us because of our equine pool. Joey has big flat feet so therefore he has had plenty of annoying issues with bruising etc. He spends a lot of time swimming and Ben, my farrier, is his constant companion. Joey is a big, strong horse who won on the flat In Ireland, although how he even went into the stalls is beyond me. He is a good workhorse at home, he’s not flash but he’s very honest, you can’t help but like his attitude. Joey can be a bit flippant with his obstacles but he’s had plenty of practice at home so he’s ready to roll and he can only improve for the experience.

Mankayan    WINNER! winner

Another top call from Charlie Fellowes. 


Sun 5th Jul 2020
17:35, Doncaster

Mankayan and Lord Halifax both run in the same race here. The ground is perfect for both horses but they will be ridden very differently. Mankayan will go forward and if he gets an easy lead he could be very dangerous and have a big chance. Stevie Donohoe rides.

Lord Halifax 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
17:35, Doncaster

Mankayan and Lord Halifax both run in the same race. The ground is perfect for both horses but they will be ridden very differently. Lord H has lost his confidence slightly but he ran better in a hot race last time and we think the drop back to 12 furlongs will allow him to get in a better rhythm. Halifax has a bit to prove and needs to bounce back, but is well and I see can both horses running well.

Hector Loza 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
17:10, Sandown

Ran well here as a 2 year old. Probably wants further but usual hood discarded for last go at this distance and top class rider takes over. Easing down the handicap and no surprise if he goes well at a big price.

Zephyrina 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
16:30, Doncaster

A big field which always brings it's challenges. Ground should be ideal and will have come forward from her reappearance run where she didn't really get the run of the race after missing the break.

Giogiobbo 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
16:00, Doncaster

Has come on for last run at Newcastle as it came off a year off. Only second run for the yard so we found out a fair bit on that last outing too. Mainly that he's got plenty of speed so trying him back in trip to the minimum distance - we feel this will help. Low weight helps too and dropped 4lbs for that last effort and now running off career-low handicap mark (81). Has been as high as 103 when with other yards so could be dangerous to rule out off this rating, but we are still learning about him and be happy with a step forward from last time.

Jeremiah 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
15:15, Haydock

Jeremiah ran a great race in the Sagaro at Newcastle a month ago but we felt he didn’t stay the trip. Soft ground is absolutely fine and 12 furlongs should work well. He could run a big race and a nice price.

Fighting Irish 
Sun 5th Jul 2020
13:00, Haydock

First run back after a break so expected to improve for this but has been going well at home. Into a Conditions race here and we've a bit to find with a lot of these on the ratings. Hopeful the first-time blinkers will help him too and should run his race but on these terms would be a tall order so just be delighted with a solid return run to kick on from as the rest of the season progresses.

Riviera Belle 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
20:40, Chelmsford

Riviera Belle made a nice debut over a mile at Chelmsford a few weeks back (6th) and should have improved for that run. Once again we are drawn in the widest stall (9) of all but hopefully she can put her experience to good use.

Look At Him 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
20:40, Chelmsford

Last runner on the day for us and a big ask. Form of last race has been franked but he was well back that day and takes on some fair-looking sorts again here. One for the future really and will be better once handicapped. On a plus, has lacked a bit of pace over the sprint trips, so trying him over 1m2f here to see if that opens a few doors.

Blue Eagle 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
20:10, Chelmsford

Blue Eagle is having her first run and has not been handed a great draw out in the widest stall of all (10). This will very much be her first day at school.

Sea Shack 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
19:55, Yarmouth

Sea Shack has been very consistent without winning, he has had a break and will probably need the run but Hollie will give him every assistance so hopefully he can run into a place again.

Olivers Pursuit 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
19:40, Chelmsford

Glimmers of hope in past form but hard to get too excited based on recent runs at Lingfield and Kempton. Not the quickest but this 1m trip should suit and George's 5lb claim helps. Trying the eyeshields on today too - hopefully they will help, but need to see more on the track really.

Robero 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
19:10, Chelmsford

Looks an open and competitive race and Robero always puts his best foot forward in his races. Ran another decent race last time when second at HQ, but the winner looked better than that grade so it might not have been a bad run even though we were 9 1/2 lengths back in second. Nice draw in 1 and George rides again to claim 5lbs. Does have a higher AW rating, but gone well here in the past so must have a fair each-way chance again.

Engrave    WINNER! winner

Nice each-way call from Julia at 16/1.


Sat 4th Jul 2020
18:25, Yarmouth

Engrave probably doesn’t get 1m4f so the drop back to 1m2f here will suit, she has also dropped to a rating of 60 which is ideal, track and ground fine so we hope she has a good e/w chance again.

Corazon Espinado 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
17:35, Epsom

Won this last year and been in fair form on the all weather this Winter. Drawn much wider here than ideal and top class but new rider so won't be easy for him. Seems in good shape and has a great record at this track. Hopeful of a good run but stable needs a change in fortune.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
17:20, Yarmouth

First time on the grass for us so a bit of an unknown. Ran well last time though and seems well at home despite returning from almost 4 months off - if handling the turf, should give a good account though and each-way price.

Onassis 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
16:15, Epsom

Onassis was impressive in the Sandringham at Ascot and certainly gave us a day to remember - but still has a lot to find at the ratings now upped from Handicap company into a Group Three - she's rated 22lbs lower than the Hannon horse, who was runner-up in the 1,000 Guineas! However, I don’t think her rating truly reflects her ability and I think she will love the track. Could out run her odds.

Perfect Inch 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
15:50, Haydock

Perfect inch ran a great race at Chelmsford last time out and would seem to have come on for that run. I think she will love the soft ground and Haydock is a lucky track for me. She should run well.

Mr Scaramanga 
Sat 4th Jul 2020
15:00, Epsom

Third in this last year and reunited with same rider. Not had much luck this winter on the all weather and stable below par so just hopeful of a big run at a good price on ground that looks perfect for him.

Heliaebel 
Fri 3rd Jul 2020
20:30, Wolverhampton

Best run to date was a Wolverhampton so we have decided to return to the track so see if we can spark her back to life. 12 furlongs should be fine and I think she likes the AW surface too.

Krystallite 
Fri 3rd Jul 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Back at favoured track here today where she's a CD winner. Nice draw in 4 as likes to break well at race up with the pace and is better for her recent run at Lingfield. Dropped 3lbs this time too and jockey is able to claim 5lbs this time so a much better chance at the weights. Overall, does need to bounce back a bit from average recent runs, but at this track and off this mark would not be shocked if she ran better than her odds.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Well deserved win for Scott's consistent stayer.


Fri 3rd Jul 2020
18:20, Hamilton Park

Most people know about this horse now - a real trier but often finds a few too good in his races. Just the one win from 27 runs backs this up, but has been second or third 9 times! A similar thing on his two return runs last month with a decent second and fourth. Not let-up from the handicapper still though, but trip and softer ground are fine - should run his race again, but higher grade here requires more but as a result of the better class we at least get in with a much lighter weight. Each-way.

Mehmo 
Fri 3rd Jul 2020
17:30, Wolverhampton

Ran in a hot maiden at Yarmouth on debut but the form of that race has been given a boost with the winner going onto land the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot. Has come on for that experience and feel the step up to 7f here (from 5f) is what he needs. Still might need more time but can go in the right direction here and a nice horse in the making, so small each-way chance.

Bowland Park    WINNER! winner

Excellent performance from Daniel's 2 year-old.


Fri 3rd Jul 2020
13:45, Chepstow

Was green on debut in a race that featured a few with big reputations - three ran in the Coventry. Should take a step forward in what shouldn't be a deep race.

Hydraulic 
Thu 2nd Jul 2020
21:00, Wolverhampton

Needs to step up on his debut effort - further in distance will help but on evidence of debut even further still than here today.

Cape Greco 
Thu 2nd Jul 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton

Did well before the break - winning last time out at Southwell. Been ticking over at home since and returns off a 3lb higher mark so more needed. George can claim 5lb in the saddle and has ridden the horse in the past too, plus is a course winner here too. Draw 3 is fine, but with not many races for this horse we've had to drop him into a Claimer and, therefore, on these terms does have a bit to find with a lot of these - he's rated 67 and is taking on some horses rated in the 80's and actually giving them weight too! With that in mind, a top three finish would be a great result.

Anglo Saxson    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well to take third - looks another improver for the Fellowes yard.


Thu 2nd Jul 2020
16:15, Bath

Ran much better last time out when things didn't quite go his way. He should love the quick ground and I think the track will suit. It looks a decent race for the track so hopefully he can run well and continue back on an upward curve.

Break The Silence 
Thu 2nd Jul 2020
14:20, Catterick

Ran a cracker on first run back at Lingfield (close second), but struggled to see out the mile trip last time out. Therefore, the drop back to 7f here will suit and make on the turf is dropped 5lbs. Jon Fisher is also still riding and claiming 5lbs so that gives him a fair e/w chance at the weights. Likes to race up with the pace, but would probably prefer a bit more rain to improve his chance. Looks competitive for the grade and a bit to prove with last turf wins coming back in 2017. Should run better over this 7f trip than last time, but might be hard to topple the recent winner - House Deposit.

Champagne Mondays 
Thu 2nd Jul 2020
13:20, Catterick

Running a pound out of the handicap here but we were happy with his last run when a close-up fifth at Lingfield. Back on the turf here and jockey is able to claim 5lbs so that helps. Doesn't look the best of races and seems well after that last outing. Has only won twice from 30 races though and is still looking for first turf success, so that would be the concern. Small e/w chance.

Global Hope 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
20:45, Kempton Park

Delighted with his win at Newbury last time out - gone up only 3lbs for that and we've managed to keep Oisin riding. Reverts to the AW here but has run well at this track in the past so no issues on that score. Draw 6 is fine and seems to have come out of that last race well. Another bold showing expected and should not be far away.

Gossiping 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

Been in good order since the return of racing - winning here in early June. Didn't build on that next time but the race might have come a bit soon (just 7 days), so we gave him 3 weeks off. Not the best draw here (!3), so will have to overcome that but a CD winner at the track and not without a chance of bouncing back if getting the luck in-running from that draw. Each-way and probably our best chance of getting something on the day from our three runners.

Et Moi Alors 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
18:45, Kempton Park

A promising effort at Sandown (3rd) back in December, but has had time off since. Returns on the flat here but has run well on only start at the track (3rd) in the past for Hector Crouch, who rides today too. The Balding horse might be hard to beat, but in a race that has little depth could run better than odds suggest.

Vision Clear 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
15:40, Southwell

Carntop 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
15:40, Southwell

Carntop was last seen running at Royal Ascot in the Ascot stakes over 2m3, where he travelled into the race well but didn't quite stay the final couple of furlongs. He's unbeaten over brush hurdles (3 from 3) but is now rated 122, and probably needs to improve again off this mark, but he is in great form at home, so certainly goes there with a chance.

Chapmanshype 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
15:10, Southwell

Chapmanshype won 4 races for us last summer and in doing so went from a handicap mark of 110 to 132. He runs in the Class 2 here, the feature race on the card, and he goes there in good order. If he's progressed again from last season, which I think he has, he should hold every chance.

Paseo 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
15:10, Southwell

Paseo had a recent spin on the flat at Chepstow, it was a slowly run affair and he was caught flat footed when they sprinted three furlongs out, it happens and he didn’t have a hard time. Paseo loves his jumping and he had a progressive profile last winter. Pads was placed in all of his hurdle races and won at Fontwell on his penultimate start but I’d say his final run over hurdles at Doncaster when finishing third was probably his best performance, it was a decent race and the ground was softer than ideal. We ran him on the all weather through the winter when the ground went against him and I don’t think he enjoyed the kickback. Pads is a cheeky chap at home, good to ride, a bit spooky but he’s a happy person you can’t help but love. Hoping he'll be fitter than some with that recent flat run and holds an e/w chance.

Donnie Azoff    WINNER! winner

Promising run from Jamie's horse.


Wed 1st Jul 2020
13:10, Southwell

Our first runner of the new National Hunt season will be Donnie Azoff in the Bumper at Southwell. He was scheduled to make his racecourse debut in the spring but that obviously didn't materialise. He is for sale, so we'd like to think he'll go close here and find a buyer (to stay in the yard). He's a lovely type out of an unraced half-sister to the smart bumper/hurdle/chase winner Promalee and Michael Mor from family of the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Little Owl. The dam has had two winners from three runners, including the five-time winner, Secrete Stream. He's going well at home and knows the job at hand, so we're looking forward to a good run.

Le Boulevardier    WINNER! winner

Solid effort from Oliver's runner.


Wed 1st Jul 2020
13:10, Southwell

Debut run here today. Le Boulevardier is a big good looking home bred gelding - he is related to flat winners and he was ready and waiting for decent ground before racing ceased in March. Thankfully his patient owners Lord & Lady Blyth, allowed us to keep him going through the summer so he is fit and ready to roll. Le Boulevardier is not flash in his work, he’s pretty lazy and he only does what he has to but I love that type, I’m sure he’ll just keep finding at the business end of the race.

Isaac Wonder    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Scu and the team.


Wed 1st Jul 2020
12:35, Southwell

Took well to fences last season - ran a great race at a big price on the flat at Goodwood a couple of weeks ago so is fit and ready to go. This is the most competitive chase he has been in but should love the ground and a fast pace to aim at should suit.

Tazka 
Wed 1st Jul 2020
12:00, Southwell

Was out of form last season but is better than that - had a break since and seems well at home for it. Working well in recent weeks at home too and gone okay off a break in the past. Jamie rides and not without a small e/w chance in a race that looks to revolve around the Nicholls and Williams horses.

Age of Wisdom 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
21:00, Chepstow

Akkapenko 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
21:00, Chepstow

Did well over hurdles at the end of last season - but returns here on the flat with no jumps racing at the moment. Does, however, have so decent flat form to his name - 10 runs (7 top three finishes, 3 wins) - when trained in France. Seems fit and well at home so despite the break from the track should do himself justice, while Charlie's 5lb claim is a further bonus in the saddle. 2m trip and ground fine but only worry would be that he's a bit high in the weights. With little depth to the race might be some small e/w value, but the contest is likely to be based around the hot favourite Gold Arch.

Lauberhorn Rocket 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
20:30, Chepstow

Won last time out at Chelmsford and has only been put up 3lbs for that. Charlie Price takes over in the saddle but he can claim 5lbs too so that helps. Trip is fine and reverts to the turf here, but has only had 2 runs on the flat turf before. Can't see any issues with the ground and although more is needed the horse is well and should hopefully be a bit sharper than some with these recent runs. Should go well.

Winter Snowdrop 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
19:45, Leicester

Has been struggling to get in a race off her lowly mark, but finally gets her chance. She tries hard and likes quick ground. We would be hopeful that she has an each-way chance in a very average race.

Beat The Breeze 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
19:15, Leicester

Mont Kiara 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
18:15, Leicester

Very well-handicapped these days and always has a chance at this level. Needs everything to fall right for him but can't be dismissed if he gets luck in-running.

Fighting Irish 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
14:00, Doncaster

Shackabooah 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
13:45, Musselburgh

Second runner in the race for us - similar chance to our other runner as only having second career run here but showed up a bit better on debut at Beverly - wasn't beaten far and the form of that race has been franked since. Can be expected to improve for that again here, but the first two in the betting set a fair standard.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Tue 30th Jun 2020
13:45, Musselburgh

Fair debut at Thirsk - taught the horse a lot but likely to need more time and experience. We do, however, feel the drop back in trip to 5f will suit and with a better start can get closer this time. Work in progress.

Rolfe Rembrandt    WINNER! winner

Another nice run from Scu's horse.


Tue 30th Jun 2020
12:30, Doncaster

Cracking debut run here over this 5f and with that experience should go well here. Looks a similar race and the fact he wasn't the best away that last day made the run even better to get so close. Quicker ground here, but should be okay and seems to have come out of that race well. Competitive, but every chance again.

Alibaba    WINNER! winner

A double on the day for Julia.


Mon 29th Jun 2020
16:20, Windsor

Alibaba won well last run and went up 5lbs, these 3yr old handicaps are always competitive, but he can still run in this grade so we hope he can still be competitive and Josh Bryan takes off a handy 3lbs.

Salsa Dip 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:50, Windsor

Should have learned a lot on debut and this is over a more suitable trip today.

Valletta Sunset 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:50, Windsor

Valletta Sunset is a slow maturing sort and is having his second run here, he should learn something and will be better once handicapped.

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner

Top call from Julia - she told members this was her best chance on the day.


Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:30, Yarmouth

Spanish Mane had excuses last run when we did think she would win. She is very well and we are hopeful of a very good run this time. She likes the girls and Sophie takes off a handy 5lbs so probably our best chance of the day.

Limerick Lord 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:30, Yarmouth

Limerick Lord has had a break and seems to have done too well, he is getting older now and probably needs a run or two to be at his best - with that in mind, he will be better for the run.

Lady Quickstep 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:20, Windsor

Certainly improved for her return run when down the field at Haydock. Dropped a few more pounds for that and starting to look well-handicapped - especially with George's 5lb claim. Trip and ground are fine and certainly hoping for a step back in the right direction here. But a tough race as up a few grades here and with a few last-time out winners in opposition. On a plus, the horses are running well and due to the rise in class we get in with a very light weight. Small e/w chances. 

Mayfair Pompette    WINNER! winner

Another good run from a Charlie Fellowes runner.


Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:00, Yarmouth

Mayfair Pompette made a lovely return to the track a few weeks back and we return to course and distance of that performance. Handicapper has been more than fair with his assessment of her as the form from her race has been franked several times. Should go close!

Oud Metha Bridge    WINNER! winner

Much improved run from Julia's horse.


Mon 29th Jun 2020
15:00, Yarmouth

Oud Metha Bridge could have done with some more rain as he tends to look after himself if the ground is too firm for him - but he is well at home.

Lady of Aran 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
14:30, Yarmouth

Lady of Aran is wonderfully consistent and will love conditions today. She loves quick ground and the straight 7f should play to her strengths. I am sure there is more improvement in her if things fall right

Approve The Dream 
Mon 29th Jun 2020
13:30, Yarmouth

Approve the Dream didn’t appear to try very hard last run so we have fitted blinkers, he worked well in them at home so hopefully they will help him here - but he is not one to rely on.

Mayfair Spirit    WINNER! winner

Another winner for the in-form Charlie Fellowes.


Sun 28th Jun 2020
16:40, Windsor

Ran okay at Chelmsford last time out but I was expecting more to be honest - was hoping a switch to turf and the track will spark some improvement. Slight step up in trip is expected to suit and the ground should be okay today. Can also be expected to have improved for that first run of the season. Each-way chance in an open affair.

Thermal 
Sun 28th Jun 2020
16:10, Windsor

Only second run for the yard - did okay on first run for us, when 7th at Lingfield but is better than that and has improved for it since in the last 3 weeks. Also stumbled at the start that day so lost all chance really. Drop back in trip will help as ran a bit free too and hopeful that run after a long break would have helped. Dropped 5lbs in the handicap so starting to look well-handicapped - plus Rhys can take 7lbs off too - and with just 6 career runs should have more to come. Each-way.

Olivia Brend 
Sun 28th Jun 2020
14:45, Newmarket

Shows up well at home, but first day at school today and in at the deep-end a bit in this Listed race. Taking on horses that have also have a run or two, so would be a big ask but a nice filly and one to note going forward.

Vegas Boy 
Sun 28th Jun 2020
14:10, Newmarket

Second run for the yard after coming from Jamie Osborne - was a fine fourth at Chelmsford on debut for us and based on that must have a good chance here. Dropped 2lbs and has fair turf form too (2 wins). Oisin booked to ride too and after taking a bit of a hold last time we are reaching for the visor this time to try and settle him a bit better. 2 or 3 others with similar chances, but happy with our horse and should make a bold bid.

Pioneering 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
19:30, Lingfield Park

Pioneering won his first race at Chelmsford earlier this month and was only beaten a length back at Chelmsford when carrying a penalty. Might find this tough off his new mark but he will give a good account of himself I hope. I think the top horse AWESOMEDUDE will take some beating turning out quickly under a penalty after winning by a considerable distance only 4 days ago - so might be playing for places.

Noble Account 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
19:30, Lingfield Park

Noble Account shows plenty of ability at home and should have won by now, he is very well handicapped and just needs a good pace to run at as he is best held up and ridden for some luck, if he gets that he will be there about again - each-way chance against the hot fav Awesomedude.

Subliminal    WINNER! winner

No chance with the well-handicapped winner, but still a retuen to form from Simon's horse.


Sat 27th Jun 2020
19:30, Lingfield Park

All his best form is at this track and trip and got blocked last time when looking like he was going well. Reunited with winning rider he should be thereabouts although he needs it all to fall right for him. But, stable operating well below par at the moment so small word of caution.

Beat The Breeze 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
19:00, Lingfield Park

Runner up here on return over longer trip but failed to build on that a few days later when obvious chance at Chelmsford. Has plenty of ability at this level and should go well again though still a maiden and not established a consistent pattern of racing yet. Stable on a losing run at present.

Ride And Prejudice 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
19:00, Lingfield Park

Ride and Prejudice has proved very difficult with the stalls, she has been waiting for a stalls test before lock down, if she behaves on the day we can find out where we are with her, she works well at home and trip will suit but best to watch this time.

Agent of Fortune 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
17:55, Lingfield Park

AGENT OF FORTUNE had a successful winter winning seven times including three here at Lingfield. Handicap mark has rocketed and it just may be that AGENT OF FORTUNE has hit her mark. The draw was no help last week at Kempton but possible first run after a break was needed.  Would have to be at her best to take this today but the race is difficult to fathom out and there are cases for a few of them in the field. She is fit and well and thrives on racing so I hope to see her finish closer today.

Inn With The Gin 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
16:40, Newcastle

Down the field on four runs to date but a bit more encouragement last time out here. Lacked a bit of pace over that 6f trip last time so the step up to 7f expected to suit but still need to see more on the track.

Perfect Inch 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
16:25, Newmarket

Perfect Inch is a lovely filly who has been working well at home. She ran well at Chelmsford recently and I expect her to be better suited by turf. We want more rain though, as I will not risk her on quick ground.

Divine Queen 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
16:25, Newmarket

Divine Queen is having her third run here and although she does go nicely at home she will be more competitive once she has a handicap mark, she will win when in the right grade.

Carnwennan 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
15:35, Newcastle

Carnwennan has an excellent record on the all weather and loves Newcastle - won the consolation race for the Plate 12 months ago too - He is also much better in big fields. Today’s conditions should suit perfectly and we are hoping for a big run with the horses remaining in great order on the track.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Another top run at the track from Gay's horse.


Sat 27th Jun 2020
15:35, Newcastle

Fifth in this race 12 months ago and must have a chance off an 8lb lower rating - also won the consolation of this race back in 2018! Has returned from the break in good order too with solid runs in similar races here and at Chelmsford. Handles the track well and not the worst shout of the bigger-priced runners to go well. Each-way.

Mukha Magic 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
15:35, Newcastle

Outrage 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
14:25, Newcastle

Returns from a long break, but this is his game. He has an excellent record at the track and over this trip, plus his homework shows he still has the same zest for life. The negatives are that he has normally needed a run or two to blow away the cobwebs, while the draw here isn't normally the best, but the bias can change! The quicker the track rides the better so any rain to tighten it up would also help.

Chiefofchiefs 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
13:50, Newcastle

Chiefofchiefs won impressively at Ascot last week and we back up quickly today. He will love the track and has a good record on the all weather. He is 7yrs old and takes his racing extremely well.

Giogiobbo 
Sat 27th Jun 2020
13:15, Newcastle

Debut run for the yard - used to be with Nick Littmoden. Experienced sort though and has won 10 times, with this being his 37th start. Run well at the track before and returns here 2lbs lower than when beaten just 2 1/2 lengths here last year at this meeting. Working okay at home and very light weight helps. We'll find out more here but a fairly consistent sort that has form off a break too, so that helps. Competitive race, but v.small e/w chance.

Silver Cliffs 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
19:00, Lingfield Park

A tricky race with many lightly-raced sorts. However, a promising first run when not beaten far at Newbury when 6th of 10. Definite e/w chances as seems to have improved at home and that debut run would have taught him a lot.

River Sprite 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
18:30, Lingfield Park

Second on debut over 6f at Kempton - a little disappointing over 7f twice since so dropping back to 6f here should help.

Fairy Fast 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
18:00, Lingfield Park

Not been out for around 6 months so might just need this but is well at home. Got a bit worked up last time before the race too so hoping the 'no crowds' today will help on that score. Looks well at home but the horses overall just need to show a bit more on the track - they are not quite running on the course as they look and feel at home, so a word of caution. On a plus, has dropped to a good mark and looks a poor race, but really just be happy with a step back in the right direction.

Relative Choice 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
17:30, Lingfield Park

Promising run first time when fourth at Goodwood. Been lucky with the draw (12) which hopefully will see Relative Choice have every chance. Each-way play in a race that depends a lot on how the hot favourite Locket runs.

A Day Of Mischief 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
17:30, Lingfield Park

Nice filly but having her first run in public today. Shows up well at home, but likely to need more time and will come on for the experience. The race looks to revolve around the O'Meara runner - Locket - who has had the benefit of a previous run.

Dubious Affair    WINNER! winner

Another nice winner for the in-form Fellowes yard.


Fri 26th Jun 2020
17:05, Doncaster

Won nicely on stable debut at Yarmouth and this looks like the perfect next step. She will love the track and should go well again. Any rain wouldn't be an issue either I don't think.

Capla Spirit 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

Missed the break a bit last time at Wolverhampton and lost all chance of recovering really. Is better than that and hopefully will be sharper for the run as that came off a 3 month break. Was doing well before the lockdown too and we feel the 5f here at Lingfield will suit. Mick's horse looks the one to beat but does carry a penalty for it's recent win and we've got Oisin booked to ride. Should not be far away and feel we've got a great chance here.

Gas Monkey 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
16:50, Newmarket

Is now paying the price of such a good time of it last season. He is in good form at home but needs to drop a few pounds in the handicap, plus a few rain storms would help. He will win again when he drops to the right grade!

Croeso Cymraeg 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
16:30, Doncaster

Mr Chua    WINNER! winner

Solid return run from Scu's horse.


Fri 26th Jun 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

Took a step forward last time out here when 4th of 8 in Novice company. Into a handicap on the flat for the first time and has had a wind op since his last run too. We feel the longer trip here will help as ran okay over hurdles over further. Likely to just need the run after 5 months off, but is well and won't disgrace - really just be happy with a solid return effort, but the decent ground will suit and hopefully can run well.

Fume 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

First time at this trip for the stable. Has had a wind op since the last time he ran. Working well since as a result and hopefully has e/w chances with conditions to suit.

Prince Of Tides 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
15:15, Newmarket

Ran a funny race at Haydock on debut where he was the last horse off the bridle but found absolutely nothing off it. I think I ran him over much too far so the drop back to 7f should work well (pedigree backs that up). Any rain would be a big plus. Queen's horse to beat but we must have a decent e/w chance here too.

Blackcurantspangle 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
14:55, Doncaster

Made a nice debut at Yarmouth a couple of weeks ago and is ready to head back to the races. Step up to a mile will suit and any rain would be fine. Probably not good enough to win but could run well and outrun his big odds.

Pettinger 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
13:50, Doncaster

Delighted with her last run when fourth at Wolves - that was her first run for the yard too and ran on well that day to suggest there is more to come. Has come out of that race well too and gets in here off the same rating. A strongly run race will suit and no issues with the ground of the return to the turf. Might be hard-pressed to beat the likes of La Trinidad, Jaaneh and Almqvist at this level, but very happy with her debut run for the yard and should have more to offer and in great form at home. Small e/w claims.

Chitra 
Fri 26th Jun 2020
13:10, Newmarket

Made a solid reappearance and should come on. A tight sprint handicap and several would have similar chances.

Dovils Date 
Thu 25th Jun 2020
20:10, Bath

11 year-old now but still showing up well in his races. Returned earlier this month at Lingfield with a fair 6th of 12 and we were delighted with that effort as he travelled well into the race - only getting tired in the final stages, plus wasn't the best away and also met some trouble in-running. Has come on for that and the longer trip (up from 1m5f to 2m1f) here is fine as stays further over the sticks. Also dropped 2lbs from last time and David Probert rides again. Overall a very average race gives us a decent chance - should go well.

Fighting Irish 
Thu 25th Jun 2020
13:45, Haydock

Summer Valley 
Wed 24th Jun 2020
20:25, Windsor

Should come on from her recent run at Lingfield - that was only her fourth career run. Back on grass today which hopefully will bring out some improvement, plus the step up to 1m2f (from 1m) looks a plus too. 2lbs lower this time and Hector Crouch rides, hopeful of a step forward. Small e/w claims.

Platinum Prince 
Wed 24th Jun 2020
19:55, Windsor

Quite a reasonable first run back when fourth at Lingfield on the AW. That was only his fourth career run so will be more to come and has come out of it well. Hopefully the return to grass will improve him and give him a decent chance today. Looks a nice e/w price against the likely favourite - Decora.

Ragtime Sally 
Wed 24th Jun 2020
19:55, Windsor

Is much better for her recent run at Lingfield after a 6 month break. Dropped 2lbs for that and we feel she'll run better here today with the cheekpieces on. Does need to improve more to get involved but only had 4 career runs so should have more to come and the headgear can hopefully settle her better too. Each-way.

Caen Na Coille 
Wed 24th Jun 2020
19:25, Windsor

Has no chance having missed the break last time out at Chelmsford  - but that also came in a much better race than this. Step up in trip should suit and should also like the track. If getting away on terms and over this trip then hopeful of a much better run and each-way claims.

Secret Art 
Wed 24th Jun 2020
19:25, Windsor

Immortal Beloved    WINNER! winner

Another step forward for this Charlie Fellowes horse - looks a fair prospect.


Wed 24th Jun 2020
16:45, Haydock

Ran well at Newmarket for a long way before getting lost in the dip. She has improved for that run and will enjoy the flat track and also the ease in the ground. Haggas and Godolphin horses likely to be tough to topple but certainly looking for another step forward here with that last run experience under it's belt.

Inn With The Gin

Sociologist 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
20:25, Kempton Park

Ran another solid race to be fourth at Thirsk yesterday - entered here at Kempton today too and as long as he's come out of that race well during the day then will take his chance as this race not until 8.25. As I often say with this horse - just the one win from 27 runs, but placed a lot and that looks to be the call again here. Drop back to 1m4f is fine and AW form is solid with 8 top 3 finishes from 18, while his only career success also came on the AW.

Relativity 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
20:10, Chepstow

Well back on debut at Newbury - Has been gelded and had a wind op over the winter, but first run back for around 8 months and will be better once getting a handicap mark.

Craneur 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
19:55, Kempton Park

Yet to win from 11 runs and was doing well up until his last run at Newbury. The cheekpieces didn't help in the end that day so that run can be ignored and they are obviously left off here today. Ground and trip are fine, plus comes here on just a pound higher mark than when running a close second at Sandown in August. In form Jim Crowley rides and has steered this horse in the past. Each-way chance.

Good Luck Charm 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
19:40, Chepstow

Needed his comeback run at Chelmsford when down the field. Older horse now at 11, but still has races in him and showing a liking for his racing at home. Blinkers are back on today too as run well in them in the past. Poss e/w chance at a nice price with the jockey knowing him well and also able to claim 7lbs.

Levanter 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
19:40, Chepstow

Fine runner-up at Lingfield last week on the AW - turned out again quickly here but seems well at home and taken that last race well. Only had one run on the turf but conditions here will suit and this 1m trip is perfect. Hollie Doyle a bonus in the saddle and should have another solid e/w chance if backing up that last effort. Looks my best chance on the day.

Shyron 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
19:25, Kempton Park

Experienced sort that is having his 64th run (9 wins). Blew away the cobwebs last time out here and dropped 3lbs for that but still can't help feeling he's got a bit to prove off this rating as not getting any younger at 9. Stable also a tad out of form so would like to see the horses overall running a bit better before having more confidence. So really just be delighted with a step back in the right direction.

Emperor Alley 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
19:10, Chepstow

Well-bred 3 year-old that is having his debut run here today. Hollie Doyle will help in the saddle but might be a tall order on debut against some more experienced sorts. One for the future.

Sor Hi Hi 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
18:55, Kempton Park

Ran okay at Yarmough but the ground was too quick for her that day. Kempton will suit her much better but she is probably one for the handicaps further down the line.

Shackabooah 
Tue 23rd Jun 2020
12:45, Beverley

Speedy 3 year-old that we've taken our time with - but debut run here today likely to need the experience and those that have had a run or two are likely to have the edge at this stage.

Jumping Cats 
Mon 22nd Jun 2020
20:30, Windsor

JUMPING CATS has a lower rating on grass so hoping today that may bring a revival to his form which has been disappointing on the all weather last couple of runs. I would think best-watched today.

Isayalittleprayer 
Mon 22nd Jun 2020
20:00, Windsor

ISAYALITTLEPRAYER will need to have improved from her recent run at Lingfield, on what was her handicap debut finishing a clear second. This looks tougher but I hope she can give a good account of herself back on turf and looks e/w value agains the King and Gosden runners.

Sociologist 
Mon 22nd Jun 2020
16:55, Thirsk

As I often say with this horse - rarely runs a bad race but tends to find a few too good. Just the 1 win from 18 starts backs this up. Ran well again last time when second at Beverly - making most of the running that day until getting overrun in the closing stages. Jockey Barry McHugh rides again and we race off the same mark too. Up from 1m4f to 1m6f is fine and trying a new track here for the first time - maybe that will help! Another bold show expected in an open race - each-way advised.

Lovers Gait 
Mon 22nd Jun 2020
13:50, Thirsk

Ideally we wanted to start her off over ten furlongs however it’s been very difficult getting her into a ten furlong race and she is crying out for a run so we start out over a mile. Initial impression would be better ground will be ideal. Her first start since joining the yard. Keen to get her season underway and learn a bit more about her.

Age of Wisdom 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Looks to have a reasonable chance in what looks an open affair. Sexy Beast and Vibrance look the obvious ones, but Wisdom has been working well at home recently and no issues with the track or 2m trip being a past CD winner. Small e/w chance at a nice price if a few of the main runners run below par.

Hector Loza 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
15:55, Kempton Park

Big outsider here and yard not going that well but he is slipping down the handicap and ran well here on his debut. Gradually getting his confidence and seems in good form so no surprise if he runs better than his odds suggest.

Kings Counsel 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
15:35, Wolverhampton

Kings Counsel a big rangy horse who has been brought along slowly, suspect he will want even further in due course. Has strengthened from 3 to 4 but needed to as his handicap mark looks harsh on what he achieved last season when qualifying.

Note Bleu 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
15:25, Kempton Park

Drawn well in 3 and was a nice CD winner here back in March. Been going well at home and looking forward to getting him back on the track. Harder race here but would not be shocked if he ran well at a nice e/w price.

Golden Force    WINNER! winner

Rounded off a top week for trainer Charlie Fellowes.


Sun 21st Jun 2020
15:05, Wolverhampton

We have worked out the key to this horse and therefore his last 2 runs have been much better. The step up in trip is interesting and I am keen to get him round a bend. The draw has not been kind (12) to us so I hope he can break well and get into a good position - if so, should have a fair e/w chance at a price.

Treble Clef 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
14:55, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us and with Danny Muscutt having had the pick over the two (he's ridden them both) the fact he's picked this one might tell us something. A nice third last time out in Feb here at the track so we know Kempton is fine. Been doing well over the break too and is dropped a pound from that last run. Feel we've got a solid each-way chance.

Fuwairt 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
14:55, Kempton Park

CD winner here so that's a plus. But one of two in the race for us and if pushed feel our other runner is slightly preferred. Fuwairt is well-handicapped though but we just feel the jury is still out on him at the moment as only sixth run for us.

Jungle Boogaloo 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
14:25, Kempton Park

Needs to bounce back from unseating Hector Crouch at the start last time out on debut for us. Had 3 weeks to get over that but not the best drawn here in 12 so overall one to watch. Hector tries again on her though so fair play for that!

Dont Tell Claire    WINNER! winner

Placed second here and looks a winner waiting to happen.


Sun 21st Jun 2020
13:30, Wolverhampton

Don’t Tell Claire made a promising seasonal reappearance and a repeat of that from a decent draw should hopefully see her getting competitive here.

Dream Chaser 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
13:25, Kempton Park

Promising debut run at Lingfield when 4th of 10. Has learned a lot from that and over this same trip can be expected to take another step forward here. Hard to assess the others in the race with some newcomers and other lightly-raced sorts, but Hollie Doyle a top jockey booking and hopeful our experience will be a plus. Decent e/w chance in a race that looks to possible lack depth.

Smokey Malone 
Sun 21st Jun 2020
13:25, Kempton Park

Is our first 2 year-old runner of the year - he is quite a character at home and needs to now have a run. He is tough and knows his job. He should outrun his odds. Ryan Tate has been in and ridden him at work a few times too, so knows him well.

Lady Morpheus 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
20:25, Kempton Park

Duchess Of Avon 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
20:25, Kempton Park

Probably our best chance on the day - she's been going well at home and will besuited by dropping back to a mile here. David Probert rides and has dropped to a mark of 58, which is his last winning rating. Feel she's got a decent each-way chance.

Agent of Fortune 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
19:55, Kempton Park

Did very well over the winter and before the lockdown - winning many times. Has gone up a lot in the ratings as a result and running off a career-high mark now here. Returns from around 4 months off and not a great draw in 13 doesn't help. CD winner though and seems well at home, but just concerned about the draw - if she can overcome it then e/w claims in a race with many chances.

Rum Baba 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
19:55, Kempton Park

Rum Baba disappointed at Yarmouth but I think he had a few excuses. I don’t think he wants to be in front and I feel he is better around a bend. Track should suit well today. He worked really nicely on Wednesday so certainly hopeful of a much better effort here today.

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
17:55, Kempton Park

Been well-backed this morning so the value might have gone a bit but we'd be disappointed if she's not in the frame at worst. The Appleby horse - Lacan - is the clear one to beat after winning only 4 days ago and if turning up would take a lot of beating. However, this race might come a bit too soon for that horse and if flopping we can hopefully pick up the pieces. Is well at home after 3 months off and CD winner here too. Jockey gets on well with the horse too and cheekpieces are on to keep her a bit more focused. Top three finish on the cards - anything else a bonus.

Seneca Chief 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
17:20, Kempton Park

Seneca Chief bids for his hattrick, needs to prove he gets six furlongs but has looked like it is likely now he has settling in his races better and showing a bit more maturity, draw wider (9) then ideal.

Imphal 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Not much depth to the race outside the main two in the betting, but feel we are one of the e/w value calls in the race here. Ryan rides, so that's the forst plus and has been ticking over nicely at home. Only third run for us but did well in similar-ish races at Goodwood and Sandown last summer. We think the longer trip is within range and won't mind conditions. Each-way.

Adrrastos 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Adrrastos has won 7 of his 22 starts and has progressed to being a 142 rated chaser.  He was all set to run in the Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival, but the ground went heavy so we pulled him out, and were instead going to aim him at the Topham at the Grand National meeting at Aintree. However, the coronavirus put paid to that plan....... so Royal Ascot is now the plan. He is fresh and fit, and has the chance of running a big race at decent odds.  However, this is his debut on the flat and we hope he handles the stalls well, and again hope he stays this trip on the flat (his best trip is 2m2 over fences).  At worst this will put him spot on for the Summer Plate at Market Rasen, and at best.....lets dream!!

Mukha Magic    WINNER! winner

Cracking run from Gay's stayer!


Sat 20th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Did well on the AW before the break and returned with a respectable effort when 6th of 11 at Wolves last week. In a much harder race here and plenty to find at the weights with some seasoned stayers. The horse is well and we think he'll like this long trip and stay it - Yes, it would be a big ask on these terms but hoping this will open up some more doors. Ben Curtis, who had a winner at the meeting yesterday, takes the ride.

Chiefofchiefs    WINNER! winner

Top call from Charlie and his second Royal Ascot winner this year!

 


Sat 20th Jun 2020
12:40, Ascot

Chief will absolutely love conditions today and I am looking forward to seeing him over 6 furlongs. We felt in Dubai the visor had made him sharper and that he has enough speed for 6f. Ground and track are perfect. Could run well at a massive price.

Look At Him 
Sat 20th Jun 2020
12:30, Newmarket

First run for the yard - was formerly with the Jo Hughes team. Has been gelded since his last run too but not shown much in two runs so far so we'll be finding out a lot more about the horse here. Well at home but after a long time off can be expected to come on for this and third run so will get a handicap mark after this.

Gorham's Cave 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
20:05, Lingfield Park

First run for the stable after a long break. Has been working well and has had a wind op since it's last run. Low-graded affair is a nice place to start him back and should have every chance.

Lauberhorn Rocket 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
20:05, Lingfield Park

Platinum Prince 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
19:35, Lingfield Park

First run of the season. The run will probably will do him good, but is well at home and has got form on the track - should still have e/w chances.

Olivers Pursuit 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
19:35, Lingfield Park

The horses are running well and despite around 4 months off this 3 year-old has been ticking over nicely at home. Has gone well off a break in the past and if running to the level that saw him run a close second at Kempton in Jan then off just 1lb higher would have a nice each-way chance. George Rooke also takes off a handy 5lbs so actually better off this time. Has run well at Epsom (left-handed) so the Lingfield track should pose no issues. Channon, Cox and Prescott runners look the obvious ones, but if any run below-par we'll be hoping to pick up some place money.

Wilson 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
19:05, Lingfield Park

Ran a good comeback race at Lingfield last time - looking like he would be suited by the step up to a mile - he has come out of the race well and so long as he doesn't lose ground at the start must be in with a good chance here.

Break The Silence 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
19:05, Lingfield Park

Consistent 6 year-old that returned a few weeks ago with another top run - second her at Lingfield. Step up from 7f to 1m is fine and gets in here off the same mark. That run would have brought him on and another solid run expected from the front. Jon Fisher takes over in the saddle and can claim 5lbs this time too.

Levanter    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to hold onto second.


Fri 19th Jun 2020
19:05, Lingfield Park

Yet to win from 5 runs, but has bits and pieces of form. Is also 3lbs lower than last time out and we feel the drop back in trip will suit. Needs to prove she can handle the track but seems well at home, so if the track is oaky then each-way chance.

Pioneering 
Fri 19th Jun 2020

Alex Gracie    WINNER! winner

Another decent run from Scott's horse.


Fri 19th Jun 2020
17:35, Lingfield Park

The Hannon horse might be hard to beat (was 2 lengths in front of us last time) but we took a step in the right direction last time with a fine second here last week. Same mark but Jonathan Fisher takes over and can claim 5lbs this time. Has come out of that last race well and can go well again, but - as mentioned - we fear the Hannon horse, who beat us 2 lengths last time. Small each-way.

Roundabout Magic 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

Regular round here and filled minor placings on last two starts over this trip. Needs a strong gallop and luck in-running but no horse tries harder and could go well again at a nice price.

London Arch 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
16:10, Ascot

Engrave 
Fri 19th Jun 2020
15:45, Newmarket

Is a big slow maturing filly and we have always thought she would be better suited with some cut in the ground on the turf. This is her turf debut, but is well and we hope she has an e/w chance at a nice price.

Vision Clear 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
17:00, Newmarket

Has got form on the flat (9 runs and 4 top three finishes - 1 win) and is working well. Gets in with a low weight too but returns from a 132 day break so probably best-watched today.

Onassis    WINNER! winner

A great ride from Hayley to win this race for the second year for trainer Charlie Fellowes.


Thu 18th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Onassis is an interesting runner. She is definitely well-handicapped but so are a few others in the race. Straight mile will really suit her as she is a strong traveller. I have absolutely no idea what she will think of the ground. A big negative is our stall (1) as it looks like you want to be high but this rain could easily have changed things. The Britannia, which is run at 4.10, will give us a better idea where we want to be in the race. Hayley rides.

Love My Life 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
16:25, Newmarket

Another of ours that is coming back from 3 months off and is also running for us for the first time. 8 runs without a win for previous trainers, but we are trying her up to this trip for the first time to see if that helps. A bit of a fact-finding mission really and we'll learn more here - expected to need the run.

Royal Bassett 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
15:50, Newmarket

This will be his third run, and he will be much better when handicapping. Realistically just hope we are not too far behind!

Prince of Arran 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
15:35, Ascot

Prince of Arran comes into the race in great form and has had the perfect prep. 2.5 miles is the big question mark but he is older, stronger and in better form than he was 3 years ago - when 8th in this race - so it’s not out of the question. We are all playing for the places behind Strad though!

Slade King    WINNER! winner

Always being held but was a nice run back (3rd) and one to note next time.


Thu 18th Jun 2020
15:15, Newmarket

Rarely runs a bad race, but is still to win from 10 outings. This is also his first run of the season - returns from a 211 day break - so perhaps best-watched on this occasion.

Craneur

15:15, Newmarket

First Prophet 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
15:00, Ascot

First Prophet couldn’t have been more impressive last week at Newbury and has taken his race incredibly well. The track will suit and he won’t mind the rain one bit. Looking forward to seeing how he gets on in this better company but a very exciting prospect for the yard. James Doyle continues in the saddle.

Robero    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Thu 18th Jun 2020
14:05, Newmarket

Back from a break so might just need this to get back in the swing of things. Returns on the turf on an 8lb lower mark though so that helps and George can claim another 5lbs from the saddle. Well at home though so expected to run his race and not without place claims off this light weight, with several non-runners this morning helping us too!

King Ottokar 
Thu 18th Jun 2020
13:50, Ascot

King Ottokar will love every drop of rain that comes. He ran a huge race over course and distance last year, when third in the Hampton Court and a big field really suits him. He also has a cracking draw (8) which gives us plenty of options. Each-way.

Prince Rock 
Wed 17th Jun 2020
19:20, Chelmsford

Close runner up on return but yet to win at this track. Generally consistent and seems in good shape but yard on long losing run at the moment.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Wed 17th Jun 2020
17:20, Chelmsford

Green on debut when very slowly away. She will know more about it today in what looks a weaker race so should show a bit more today and looks like a fair 2 year old. No surprise to see her go well at a big price though yard out of form.

Atailof Two Cities 
Wed 17th Jun 2020
16:15, Beverley

Ran appallingly first time out but that was completely my fault as she hadn't been schooled properly. She is a million times better than that and it will not be a similar performance here today.

King Carney 
Wed 17th Jun 2020
13:50, Ascot

Got a poor ride at Lingfield, where silly early fractions gave him absolutely no chance to get home on ground that was way too quick. Things much more in his favour today and Danny Tudhope is back riding - he won on him at Pontefract last season. This is a tough race, but we had the third in it 12 months ago (King Ottokar) so that gives us hope. Drop back to 1m2f also a plus - is well at home too and with a better run race to suit could certainly outrun his odds

Lauberhorn Rocket    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Tim on the flat.


Tue 16th Jun 2020
20:45, Chelmsford

Ran an okay race last week at Wolverhampton (6th of 11) - considering the horse didn't get the best of runs either. Has improved for that at home. Same mark here but we put George Rooke on here and he can claim 5lbs. The 1 1/2 furlongs will suit too and should be fine around this track too. Another average staying contest and one we feel this horse would have every chance in with a bit more luck in-running.

Que Quieres 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
20:15, Chelmsford

Good record here until last week when he ran well below expectations. Beaten too far out to just be fitness but would be thereabouts in this if that run can be ignored. New rider takes over tonight and the horse seems in good shape.

Barrier Reef 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
20:15, Chelmsford

Only fourth run for us and showed a lot more promise last time out at Kempton when 4th of 14. Is back off a 5lb lower mark and we are putting on the first-time visor this time too as we feel it will help. Slightly longer trip will suit too as stayed on well over 1m4 last time. Well at home and in what doesn't look a great race fee we head here with an each-way chance - anything else a plus.

Beat The Breeze 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
19:45, Chelmsford

Just failed last week at Lingfield on return when he would have needed the run. Ideally he would have had longer between races but we have to go where the races are at this level. If he can cope then a repeat of last week's efforts at a different track would give him a great chance in this.

Pioneering 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
19:15, Chelmsford

Impressive winner last week. Due to go up 8lbs which sees him 3lbs well in. Hopefully he should be able to win again with Dylan Hogan riding and able to claim 3lbs. Looks our best chance on the day.

Luxford    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Gary's horse.


Tue 16th Jun 2020
19:15, Chelmsford

Disappointing last season. Hopefully she will come back fresh and well from her break which should see her run well at a track she's a CD winner at - capable, but we'd probably like to see that on the track first.

Mont Kiara 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
17:40, Chelmsford

Well handicapped horse who was unlucky in-running at Lingfield last time. If he can act as well at this track then he has an obvious chance in a small field.

Caledonia Laird 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
17:40, Chelmsford

Course winner here and has been doing well during the break. Is back to last winning mark and we give the horse further help with George riding to claim 5lbs. Only 7 runners but looks an open affair and off this mark we feel we head here with as good a chance as any of the others in the race.

Golden Bear 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
17:30, Windsor

Made a very promising debut when 4th (of 12) at Kempton a few weeks ago and has definitely come on for that run. He is well-drawn (2) and should go close here today.

Te Amo Te Amo 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
17:10, Chelmsford

Disappointing over various distances but has ability and seems to be putting some of his issues behind him. Badly needs to get his confidence but runs off a featherweight mark and must go in one day.

Quloob 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Been working well at home. Ascot is a track he runs well (been third and fourth here over hurdles) at too, so must have e/w chances here today at a nice price.

Carntop 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
16:40, Ascot

Our first runner since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, and as there is no jump racing until 1st July, we thought we may as well have a go at a couple of races at Royal Ascot! Carntop was runner-up in the 2016 Lingfield Derby Trial and was rated as high as 105 on the flat, but he did only win one race on the level before coming to us to go jumping. He has since won a brace of novice hurdles and a handicap, and is set for another summer over hurdles. This should give him a nice racecourse gallop at least, but off a mark of 95 there is a chance he might be well-handicapped so can't be totally ruled out based on his old flat form - and, again, he might appreciate not having an obstacle in front of him.......We'll see!

Seneca Chief    WINNER! winner

Another easy win for Daniel's horse.


Tue 16th Jun 2020
16:00, Chelmsford

Seneca Chief bids to follow up a nice win in a similar race on Friday at Wolverhampton, again not the best of draws and his style of running relies on a bit of luck in-running. He has, however, won over course and distance in the past.

Pilgrims Pursuit 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
15:50, Thirsk

Going the right was at home but debut run here today so not a race to get too involved in. Cheekpieces are on and Jon Fisher helps by taking off 5lbs from the saddle. Be delighted with a solid run but very much expected to improve for the experience. The Tate horse - Blazing Hot - sets the standard.

Golden Lips 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
14:25, Ascot

Ran a blinder in the Oaks Trial at Lingfield last time out - was 2nd at 66/1 and only beaten 1 1/4 lengths in the end by Miss Yoda, who we take on again. Has come out of that race very well and now we know that longer trip suits there will be plenty more chances for her now. Only rated 3lbs lower than Miss Yoda but we are about 4 times her price. Track, trip and ground will suit and despite this an obvious step up in grade again, deserves to take her chance. Small e/w

Alexander James 
Tue 16th Jun 2020
13:15, Ascot

A horse that came to us from France - has had 7 races over there - winning 3 times. Thrown in a bit at the deep end here on first run for the yard and also first run since November. Nice draw in 4 and Luke a plus in the saddle - the horse is well but goes without saying a tough ask on return run. One to note going forward though and in slightly calmer waters.

Deputy    WINNER! winner

Fast-finishing and looks a winner in the making next time out! Well-backed - 5/2 from 6/1


Tue 16th Jun 2020
13:00, Thirsk

Has been going well at home and should have no problems with the easy ground. 7f is perfect too and I can see him running a nice race.

Paseo 
Mon 15th Jun 2020
20:25, Chepstow

Has been ticking away during the summer and doesn’t take much getting ready. Hated the all-weather, trip and track will be ideal. He has got a small each-way chance. He will definitely go hurdling or chasing after this.

Angel On High    WINNER! winner

Spot on call from Harry.


Mon 15th Jun 2020
18:35, Kempton Park

Looks a nice little race, with 4 of the 6 runners being last time out winners - and our horse is one of those. Happy with his success at Lingfield back in January in a Novice Stakes race and has done well at home since. This will be harder now into a Class 4 handicap, but a likable colt that we hope can improve further for the step up in trip. Looking forward to a nice run and has an e/w chance. The Beckett horse, who won well last week, looks the one to beat though and might have the fitness edge on us all.

Chitra    WINNER! winner

Soild effort from Daniel's runner.


Mon 15th Jun 2020
18:25, Chepstow

Chitra paired up with Richard Kingscote, they have an excellent record together with five wins from seven attempts. Seems in good form at home and as long as the ground doesn't get too slow should go nicely on a track that might suit her.

Flat Stone 
Mon 15th Jun 2020
17:35, Kempton Park

We are the third trainer for this horse and he's only had 2 runs. We'll learn a lot more about the horse here today and being that he's been off the track since April 19 then it goes without saying he can be expected to come on for the run and once getting a handicap mark.

The Warrior 
Mon 15th Jun 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Experienced sort and as I've said many times does have his own ideas at times. Certainly capable if in the mood though in a race like this and has won over this CD in the past. However, we do feel he's better around Lingfield, but limited races for him at the moment there so forced a bit to run here. Top jockey riding that can also claim 3lbs (Fallon) and would have benefitted from his last run a few weeks ago after 3 months off. Small e/w claim, like our other runner in the race, but do fear the O'Keeffe runner - Aegeus.

Holiday Magic 
Mon 15th Jun 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

One of two in the race for us and if pushed looks our slightly better chance. Probably just needed the run in the end last time out (Lingfield) just 9 days ago, but improved for that. Dropped a pound and returns to Kempton, where he's a past CD winner. Step back up to 1m (from 7f) is also fine and Sean Levey a good jockey booking. Each-way claims, with likely favourite - Aegeus - looking the one to fear most.

Mon 15th Jun 2020
15:15, Goodwood

Only had two runs and despite not winning has shown up well in both races. Returns from 242 days off and has had a wind op over the winter too. Into a handicap for the first time will help and we feel the step up in trip will be what he needs. Won't disgrace, but with around 8 months off though expected to improve for this.

Isaac Wonder 
Sun 14th Jun 2020
14:55, Goodwood

Nice to get going with the horse again after having some issues - Think this is a nice place to start him back and blow away the cobwes but seems well at home and not run bad off a break in the past. However, really just be happy with a solid run back and delighted to get him back on the track.

Darebin 
Sun 14th Jun 2020
14:55, Goodwood

Normally seen over the sticks and never really the plan to run him on the flat, but these different times have forced our hand a bit. Fair form on the AW - 6 runs and 4 top three finishes - but only fourth run on the turf (flat) here. In good form at home and struggled with the wet weather over the winter so today's conditions will suit. Migith be a tall order over this 1m4f trip - might find a few a bit too pacey - but it's great to get him to the track and should run his race.

Relative Choice 
Sun 14th Jun 2020
13:10, Goodwood

Nice filly that is going the right way but likely to improve for the experience and even though she shows a lot of speed for this 5f trip, will probably want a bit further in time.

Junkanoo 
Sun 14th Jun 2020
12:35, Goodwood

Probably our best chance on the day - but still an each-way shout. Did well in maidens last year and is having his first run in a handicap here today. We'll know more about his mark after this, but we feel the step up to 1m2f will suit and hopefully open up a few more doors. Trip is fine too and been pleasing in his work at home.

Sans Souci Bay 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
20:30, Leicester

Useful on his day - once rated in the 80's but has lost his way a bit of late and actually refused to race last time out at Southwell. That came back in Jan so might just need this race to blow away the cobwebs away anyway. Blinkers are on to help him focus and he's at least a course winner here. But really after that last run it's a watching brief until we see a bit more on the track - On a plus, he is looking very well handicapped!

Habanero Star 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
18:30, Leicester

One of two in the race for us and certainly our better chance. This 3 year-old was a fine third on debut at Yarmouth last week and has come out of that very well. We look to have the Channon horse to beat but with that experience under her belt we feel we head here with a very good chance.

Look At Him 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
18:30, Leicester

Second runner for us in the race. First run for the yard after coming from the Jo Hughes yard. More needed on what he's shown from two races in France to date and returns from a 410 day break so can be expected to improve for this - likely to be better once handicapped.

Trixie Waterbury 
Sat 13th Jun 2020

Nice filly, but like a lot of mine first time out will learn a lot from this today. One for the future but will like the ground and trip.

Mankayan

Vorashann 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
16:50, Sandown

Hoping the overnight rain may have improved VORASHANN'S chances by taking any sting out of the ground. Like most of them first outing for a while, but looks to have done enough at home to arrive here fit to run a respectable race. 

Lawmaking 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
16:45, Newbury

Very pleasing return run back at Newcastle last week, when 4th of 12. Equally as good on the turf and overall turf record is solid - 22 runs and 9 top three finishes (2 wins). Maybe a bit to prove around this mark at the moment but a horse that rarely runs a bad race and last week's outing should have him head here a lot fitter and sharper than most of the others. Each-way.

Seaborn 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
16:20, Sandown

SEABORN has a very attractive CV winning five of his eight starts for his previous trainer (Patrick Chamings). First run for me and SEABORN has not been with me that long but is working nicely at home. This will have to be a career-best to win off this mark today. The horse he beat last time - Australis - won well in the week though, so that was encouraging to see. Will have to be improving to take this but apart from QAWAMEES all the runners for this race are having their first outings for some time so most of us look to be in the same boat.

Silver Cliffs 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
16:10, Newbury

Debut run today and I suspect best-watched, but he will certainly come on for the run and one to note going forward.

Valletta Sunset 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
15:45, Sandown

Is a slow maturing sort - he has been ready to run for a while but hasn't been able to get into a race. Second run here in a competitive race so hopefully he will learn from the experience and will get more competitive once handicapped.

The Game Is On 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
13:15, Newbury

Ran well enough on stable debut last week on the all weather. Back to 10f and with top rider booked he should go well though unknown on soft ground. Track should suit and he seems in great form.

Stormingin 
Sat 13th Jun 2020
13:15, Newbury

STORMINGIN is not the most reliable or consistent but he is in good heart at home and working well after a break. Hoping that back on grass he may give a better account of himself today. Comes with risks but each-way claims at a nice price if in the mood once the race starts.

Dutch Art juvenile that shows plenty of speed at home. First run here today though so will learn a lot here and will come on for it.

Hydraulic 
Fri 12th Jun 2020
20:30, Newbury

A very big rangy gelding who probably wouldn't have seen the track a lot earlier than this in any case. He is ready to get a run but is very much the type who will learn a lot from his first run. This looks a very good novice race on paper.

First Prophet    WINNER! winner

Top info yet again from Charlie.


Fri 12th Jun 2020
19:30, Newbury

Is a nice 2 year-old who has been going well at home. He has done plenty of work so should be ready to run and we think that he is above average. Track and trip should suit perfectly.

Lady of Aran 
Fri 12th Jun 2020
15:45, Kempton Park

Is a wonderfully consistent mare who rarely runs a bad race - especially around Kempton. Looks like a typically competitive fillies handicap but she will be thereabouts as always. Each-way.

Pettinger 
Fri 12th Jun 2020
15:00, Wolverhampton

A horse that is having it's debut for the yard. Only had 5 career runs and despite no wins yet has shown up bits and pieces of form. Trying 7f for the first time here today as looking back at her last run over a mile we feel she just didn't get home. 5lbs lower than opening handicap mark too and also sports the first-time hood. We'll find out more here, but is working well enough at home to suggest she heads here with an each-way squeak at a nice price. But no matter what, should be winning races in the right company as the season moves on.

Seneca Chief    WINNER! winner

Great winner for Daniel.


Fri 12th Jun 2020
14:00, Wolverhampton

Had his issues and endured a horrible trip last time out on his return action after a long layoff, no sooner had he resumed racing lockdown began. Now he is drawn widest off all. Not sure a horse can get much worse luck then this guy manages, hopefully it will turn at some point because he does show he retains the ability he showed in the first part of his career.

Best form by far is here and generally runs well in this grade and over the distance. New rider takes over and he is not easy to win with but should be thereabouts if he is fit enough on return.

Approve The Dream 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
20:30, Yarmouth

Has been working well but does need the rain to arrive and we will monitor that later on. If he does run (and there is rain) he will have an each-way chance in what looks a weak handicap.

Beat The Breeze    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Simon's horse.


Thu 11th Jun 2020
20:15, Lingfield Park

Strong colt who should find his races and will likely be suited by a step up in trip. Will be better for the run but well handicapped and he might get away with it at this level.

Prince Percy 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
20:15, Lingfield Park

Last seen running fifth at Lingfield, but is 2lbs lower here. Prince Percy has been working well at home since though and we are delighted to get him back on the track. He just needs to overcome a bad draw (12) to give him a reasonable chance over this 1m2f trip. 

Alibaba    WINNER! winner

Spot on call from Julia - a nice 25/1 winner!


Thu 11th Jun 2020
20:00, Yarmouth

Has had a winter break and although he hasn't grown much, he has strengthened up. He could do with some rain and if it does arrive will hopefully have an each-way chance here.

Savitar 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
19:45, Lingfield Park

Did really well last week, when 4th of 11 here had to come from a bad draw. That came over 1m2f, but feel this 1m trip is his best distance. Feel the Carroll horse - Beau Geste - is the one to beat but we've a better draw in 8 here and the plan will be to sit just off the pace in the box seat and come late. CD winner too, so no issues on the track - overall feel we've got a decent each-way chance.

Recuerdame 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
19:45, Lingfield Park

Anxious sort who has plenty of ability. Looked to be coming back to form when last seen and no surprise to see him involved in this weak race though not run his best race here yet.

Divine Queen 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
19:30, Yarmouth

Is a beautifully bred Kingman filly that we bought last year. She has matured and got stronger over the winter, but this looks competitive. However, the experience will do her good and she will be one to follow once handicapped.

Tallee 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
18:45, Lingfield Park

Showed nothing on debut but goes well enough and will know more today. Probably be better off once handicapped but has races in her.

Roundabout Magic 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
18:10, Lingfield Park

Fantastic old sprinter who loves it round here and ran well on his return when forced to come wide last Sunday. Wide draw no real help but he needs them to go hard and collapse. Sure to have his supporters, he is as brave as a lion and no surprise if it turned out to be his day in the sun again with another new rider.

Alex Gracie    WINNER! winner
Thu 11th Jun 2020
17:40, Lingfield Park

Yet to win but only had 6 career runs. Has been third three times but we are hoping this slight rise in grade - into a Grade 5 - will help a bit as gets in with a much lighter weight (8-5). Yes, the oppo will be tougher, but this will be the lightest weight he's carried during his career. Nice draw in 4 too, but really after around 4 1/2 months off just be happy with a nice return run and go from there.

Fighting Don 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
17:30, Yarmouth

Some fair form last year so even though he's yet to win a race this first run in a handicap will help. Looks a tight little race, with all 4 runners having a say. The horse is well though and we feel this step up in trip will be to his liking, but we won't know that for sure until he tries it in a race. Does look a trappy contest, but as long as the ground is on the quick side then can't be ruled out.

 

Champagne Mondays 
Thu 11th Jun 2020
17:10, Lingfield Park

CD winner here but that came in just a 2 runner contest back in March 19. Has failed to win since (14 races) but has dropped to a very low mark. Trip and track are therefore okay and the horse seems well after the break, but we need to see more sparkle back on the track to be more confident really.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Another nice place run from Scott's horse.


Thu 11th Jun 2020
16:50, Beverley

A fairly consistent sort that has been placed in the top three 9 times from 25 runs. But has only 1 win to his name so does have a habit of finding a few too good in his races. Probably a bit to prove on the turf too with his better form being on the AW, but expected to run his race with small e/w claims.

Global Hope    WINNER! winner

Great call from Gay and another nice TQ VIEW winner this month.


Thu 11th Jun 2020
14:10, Newbury

Happy with his return run at Yarmouth last week, when 4th of 10 - only beaten 2 lengths and actually stumbled a bit at the start too! Has improved for that as it came off around 4 months off and should therefore be fitter than more. The drop back to 6f will help and Oisin Murphy an obvious bonus in the saddle. Looks to hold a big chance and as long as there is not too much rain, we'll be disappointed if the horse is not going very close here.

Di Matteo 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
20:30, Kempton Park

First run back after 3 months off - okay at home but only second run for us after coming form the Marco Botti yard so we'll find out more here. Also drawn 10 of 10 doesn't help, so going to be a tall order from there. Be delighted with a solid run and build from there.

Spanish Mane 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
19:45, Yarmouth

Has also done well for the break and is on a very good mark now too. She goes well here on the straight course (CD winner) and she has run well for Dylan Hogan on her last run. We would hope she has a great chance of winning for the fourth time in her career. 

Beat The Judge 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

Quite a promising run a while ago (Feb) when 4th here to a useful sort and then ran 8th in the County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Is well at home and if all goes well, should have every chance.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
19:15, Yarmouth

Has done well for the break - he is now on a winnable mark. Loves it here at Yarmouth and hopefully there will still be some cut in the ground. He runs well fresh too, so we hope he has an each-way chance here with the horses running well in general after the break.

Levanter 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
19:15, Yarmouth

Lemon Song 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

Another of ours that is having his debut run here today. Likeable sort, but will come on for the experience here today.

Mayfair Pompette    WINNER! winner

No chance with the useful-looking winner, but still a top effort to build on.


Wed 10th Jun 2020
18:45, Yarmouth

Ran very well twice last year before picking up a nasty injury. This is a good starting point and conditions will be perfect but I expect her to improve significantly for the race.

Gentleman At Arms 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

Debut run here today - doing well at home, but like a lot of ours first time out is expected to improve for the run and the experience.

Jolyon 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

Down the field on two runs so far, but will get a handicap mark after today - being this will be his third outing. Slight step up in trip will help though and will be suited by the Kempton track.

Gossiping 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Won here last week - was nice to see him back to winning ways. This looks a tougher race than last time and not so well drawn (8). Hopefully he will come on for that last race though and if so should see him have every chance off only a 4lb higher rating.

Anglo Saxson 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Got punished for running too well on his third start at Yarmouth last Sept and therefore started life on a tough mark in handicaps. 7f around Kempton is a nice starting point back but I think he will be better on a quick turf surface.

Zephyrina 
Wed 10th Jun 2020
16:50, Pontefract

Will want a bit of rain to run, there is some forecast. Looks a good spot for her to begin her season and she should enjoy the stiff mile.

Lauberhorn Rocket 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
21:00, Wolverhampton

Not been out since Feb, but has won off a break in the past. A nice draw in 1 and we are putting on the tongue-tie today to help with his breathing. Is, however, 4lbs higher than last winning mark so would need a bit more, but well at home and should run his race - each-way.

Pioneering    WINNER! winner

Top effort from the front.


Tue 9th Jun 2020
20:45, Chelmsford

Been working well at home recently. Hopefully the surface will ride nice and slowly and smoothly. If so, should have a reasonable e/w chance.

Capricorn Prince    WINNER! winner

Each-way return.


Tue 9th Jun 2020
20:15, Chelmsford

Back after a break - but was going the right way before the time off - winning at Lingfield over 1m4f. Step up in trip is fine (1m6f) and is only 3lbs higher.  Should have every chance if acting on the different surface.

Rudy Lewis    WINNER! winner

Great call from Charlie.


Tue 9th Jun 2020
20:00, Wolverhampton

Struggled at the end of last year but on his Thirsk form of three runs back he should go very close. 10 furlongs should suit well too and he has also got a cracking draw (2), which is very important here at Wolverhampton.

Que Quieres 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
19:45, Chelmsford

Has a good record here and runner-up when last seen in a similar race. Fitness has to be taken on trust but if the race works out for him then he should have every chance.

Paintball Wizard 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
19:45, Chelmsford

Is a big horse who needed time mature so this should be his year. He loves soft ground on the turf so the AW surface is a big question though. On a plus, he is fit and on the right handicap mark. Hopefully he can run well here and build upon it later in the season when he gets his ideal conditions.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to run another solid race.


Tue 9th Jun 2020
19:15, Chelmsford

Very happy with his return run at Newcastle last week, when coming 4th over a trip (1m4f) that would have been on the short side. Same mark here but the step up to 1m6f will suit and is a past CD winner over here too. But much more needed upped in grade slightly, in what looks a harder race. The positive is that he's come out of that last race well and should be sharper and fitter than most with that recent run. Looking forward to another solid run and small e/w claims.

Mukha Magic 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton

Another of ours that was going great guns before the lockdown - winning three on the spin at Southwell. Has shot up the ratings as a result and is now 19lbs higher than when that winning run started and 10lbs higher than his last win. He did, however, do it very nicely last time - winning by 6 1/2 lengths - so there is every reason to think he'll cope with the rise in the ratings. Like one of our other runners - Capala Spirit - he's got a fair bit of weight (joint topweight) and that might be his undoing. Has, however, been kept well at home since and even though the Hugo Palmer horse is feared we look to have a fair each-way chance if able to carry the weight.

Lord Halifax 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
19:00, Wolverhampton

Has disappointed since bolting up at Kempton 2 starts ago - however, he had legitimate excuses on both runs. The draw has been kind (4) to him here today and he shouldn't be too far away.

Caen Na Coille 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
18:45, Chelmsford

Takes on some unexposed 3 year-olds today but she has a year advantage being a 4 year-old. She has won over this course and distance and this is certainly the right race to start her back in. Each-way price.

Dont Tell Claire    WINNER! winner

Top run from Daniel's horse at 100/1 - looks an exciting prospect for the yard.


Tue 9th Jun 2020
18:15, Chelmsford

Has done some nice work at home. But, she hasn't quite got the hang of breaking sharply, which is a concern at a track that was strongly favouring the front runners.

Capla Spirit 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
18:00, Wolverhampton

We were delighted with his progress before the enforced break. He won his last race in great fashion at Southwell and it was a shame racing had to stop for a while. We've been keeping him ticking over at home though and we are hopeful he's improved again since. All three AW runs to date have been at Southwell, but we feel Wolverhampton will suit too. Also, first time in a handicap so we'll learn more here. Should go well, but only niggle would be that he's got a fair amount of weight on handicap debut (joint topweight).

Prince Of Tides 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
17:20, Haydock

Is a well-bred newcomer and is ready to run! His work has improved throughout the Spring. He will come on for the run though.

Beauty Choice 
Tue 9th Jun 2020
14:15, Haydock

Has been working well this Spring and this looks like the perfect starting point. I would be disappointed if he is not thereabouts at the finish. Looks a nice e/w option in an open affair.

Voice Of Calm    WINNER! winner

Top ride from the front - the drop in grade certainly helped!


Mon 8th Jun 2020
20:20, Lingfield Park

Did well last season and ended the year with a top run in a Class 4 Handicap at HQ. Has done well over the winter months and this drop in grade (Class 6) will help a lot. Trip is fine too and the handicapper has also dropped us a few pounds. Nicola Currie rides and if able to overcome the wide draw (11) over this 1m2f trip, then can certainly make her presence felt.

Noble Account    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to nab third 10/1 into 5/1 and looks a horse to watch next time.


Mon 8th Jun 2020
20:20, Lingfield Park

Is so frustrating - he has so much ability but saying that he is on a good mark now and Charlie Bennett knows him well. The track should suit and trip is ideal. He should run well fresh so hopefully a good each-way chance.

Hit The Rocks 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
19:50, Lingfield Park

First run for the stable on the flat and AW after three runs over hurdles. Is fit and well at home and we feel he's in with a chance with a nice draw (2), should have every chance. Each-way price

Engrave 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
19:50, Lingfield Park

Was just starting to show some form before lockdown - she has grown and matured for the break but is a big filly and could well need the run. She will be worth following on her next run, but we still hope she shows promise here.

Thermal 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
19:50, Lingfield Park

First run for the stable - came from the Ian Williams yard. Been working well but has a bad draw (12) to overcome so that will make life harder and probably best-watched on this occasion. We'll learn a lot more after this. 

Dovils Date 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
18:50, Lingfield Park

Course winner here at Lingfield, but getting on a but these days at the age of 11. Versatile sort though, that has dropped to a fair mark on the level and is now 9lbs lower when last winning on the flat. David Probert knows him well and seems well at home. If finding some old form on the track then is well-handicapped and could be dangerous to rule out. Each-way.

Headley George 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
17:20, Lingfield Park

Well grown gelding who has needed some time and finally makes his belated debut. Has done a Barrier trial here so should not be too green and will learn plenty from the experience in what looks a tough race.

Aquascape 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
16:55, Haydock

Mayfair Spirit 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
16:40, Chelmsford

Was an absolute star last year - winning 5 times in 2019. There is no reason to think he hasn't improved again this year either. He has won over this course and distance and has a cracking draw (2) for his running style. He should go close.

Secret Art 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
16:40, Chelmsford

Probably our best chance of the day at Chelmsford.  The worry would be that age is catching up with him as 10 now, but seems well at home. We'll see how he runs today, but only e/w advised.

Rafiot 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
16:40, Chelmsford

Another one very badly drawn (11) and also having his first run on the AW for us - so probably best-watched on this occasion.

Vulcan 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
16:25, Haydock

Been gelded since last race, when a very decent third (of 13) at Bath back in September. First time in a handicap today so we'll learn more but expected to improve for the step up in trip. Tough race but is well at home and if improving for the longer trip then must have small e/w claims.

River Sprite 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
15:05, Chelmsford

River Sprite showed promise on debut last season when second at Kempton. She was a bit disappointing on her second start- however, she ran at a time when a few of our horses were a bit below par. She is a big filly and has done well over the winter and we have been pleased with her homework.

Riviera Belle 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
14:30, Chelmsford

Is drawn out wide (10) so we will take out time and hope they go a decent pace. She has a lovely pedigree and will stay further in time.

Perfect Inch 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
14:00, Chelmsford

Ran poorly last year at Newmarket but everything went wrong that day - ground, trip and the start! She is much better than that and will find things much more in her favour here today. Could easily outrun her odds.

Good Luck Charm 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
13:30, Chelmsford

Very badly drawn (12) on his first run of the season which does cause a track bias, so based on that probably best-watched on this occasion.

Lady Quickstep 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
13:15, Haydock

A horse we've taken our time with - not run for a year. But has good form to her name, including running the useful Liberty Beach, who was a Listed winner yesterday, close the last twice. Has done well since over the winter and looking forward to getting going with her again. Pleasing with her work and a horse to note as the season goes on, but might just need the run after such a time off.

Vegas Boy 
Mon 8th Jun 2020
12:30, Chelmsford

First run for the yard after coming from the Jamie Osborne yard so we'll learn a lot here about him. Has some fair form to his name though and an experienced sort that has won 4 times. Decent AW record too with 5 top three finishes from 10 starts - plus a CD winner here. First run after a wind op too and hoping the eyeshields will help him focus. Dropping mark gives us hope as has won off 2lbs higher - pleasing at home, but we feel the horse will improve for the run here today - one to watch going forward.

Duel In The Sun    WINNER! winner

Superb debut run from Charlie's horse - should be some exciting times ahead for this horse.


Sun 7th Jun 2020
17:20, Newmarket

Looks very nice at home but this looks a tough starting point so it will be interesting to see where he stands against some big yards. I am looking forward to seeing him run though and we'll go from there.

Krystallite 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
17:10, Lingfield Park

Fairly consistent sort that has dropped to a fair mark - last win came off just a pound lower mark. Likes to race up with the pace so hoping she can break well from the 7 draw. Fit and well at home and if getting an easy lead is not without a small each-way chance at a nice price.

Roundabout Magic 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
17:10, Lingfield Park

Grand campaigner with a great record here over course and distance. Reunited with top rider who has a good record on him. Well drawn and seems in top form so should be thereabouts.

Break The Silence    WINNER! winner

Decent run from Scott's horse.


Sun 7th Jun 2020
16:35, Lingfield Park

Returns after a break after having a busy spell at Southwell. First career run at Lingfield but no reason why it won't suit. But not the best of draws in 12. Has gone well off a break in the past though and has been doing plenty at home so if getting the breaks from the wide draw then each-way claims. Rivas Rob Roy looks the one we've all got to beat. 

Wilson    WINNER! winner

Nice each-way call - 14/1 into 6/1.


Sun 7th Jun 2020
16:35, Lingfield Park

Has been slipping down the handicap - he has never moved better at home and has been working well. He runs well fresh and is Josh Bryan can get him to jump quicker out of the stalls he will out-run his odds. Josh has won on him before too, so that's a plus - hopeful of a good run.

Fuwairt 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
16:35, Lingfield Park

Certainly capable off this sort of mark but needs to show a bit more of his old sparkle on the track. First time dropped into a 0-60, so this easier grade will help and should also get a strong pace that he needs with Rivas Rob Roy in the race. But overall, would just be delighted with a better run than he's shown since coming to us and build from that.

Moosmee 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
15:25, Lingfield Park

Makes his debut for us and first go in a handicap. Unproven at Lingfield so we will learn plenty about him today but works very well and a great type so no surprise if he belies his odds.

King Ottokar 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
14:40, Haydock

Is very talented and has his conditions, That said, the race today looks very very tough and he will have to be spot-on to win here today. He has won first time out in both his last two season though so that does give us some hope!

Donald Llewellyn 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
13:40, Lingfield Park

Just the one run and that came with a 7th at Nottingham last November. Has done well in the last 7 months but likely to need more experience on the track and will also be better once handicapped after a few more runs.

Royal Bassett 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
13:40, Lingfield Park

Debut run came at Chepstow and finished down the field - that came back in July 19. Is well at home but this is only his season run. Needs more time and experience and really also needs a mark and will be better once running in handicaps.

London Arch 
Sun 7th Jun 2020
13:30, Haydock

Is a lovely horse and wasn't 100% last time out when he got beaten. Ground would be a small question mark, but he stays the trip well so his stamina will come into play. Should go well.

Savitar 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
21:00, Lingfield Park

Last seen running second at Kempton back in March - just bumped into one that day. Course winner and returns on the same mark as last time. Should be fine over this 1m2f trip as been third here over it for us in the past. Can't discount, but the big concern is the wide draw in 11, which makes life a lot harder even over this trip and that prove his undoing. 

Avorisk Et Perils    WINNER! winner

Great ride to overcome the wide draw.


Sat 6th Jun 2020
21:00, Lingfield Park

Maybe a bit to prove over this 1m2f trip but the horse is well and expected to run it's race. Likes the track though so small e/w chance, but negative would be the wide draw (12).

Chamomile 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
21:00, Lingfield Park

Won nicely on her handicap debut last season. Before disappointing on her final start of the season but came back not quite right so perhaps best forgiving that run. She’s been off for a long time like most and whilst there will be some improvement for a run she shouldn’t be too far from full fitness. She does have a tendency to run free which is never ideal, especially in a horse that hasn’t run for a long time when the sheer excitement of being back at the races can light them up a bit.

 
Ragtime Sally 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
20:25, Lingfield Park

Showed bits and pieces of form last season but this is her first run in a handicap here. We feel the step up in trip is what she needs but we'd like to see her run over it in a proper race to be sure. Hopefully it will give her more options going forward too. Tough race but she is well and hopeful of a nice effort. Each-way price.

Isayalittleprayer    WINNER! winner

Top run from Gary's horse - only just touched off by a neck.


Sat 6th Jun 2020
20:25, Lingfield Park

Going the right way at home and another that is having it's debut in a handicap today - should be seen in a much better light as a result. Last run at Newmarket was a decent effort (9th of 20) in what looked a competitive contest. Does look a competitive 0-60 with the Charlton, Johnston and Balding runners respected. But has done very well since her last run and we feel this is our best chance on the day.

Holiday Magic 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
19:15, Lingfield Park

Has done well for us since coming from the Mick Easterby yard - winning twice from only 4 runs. Can ignore the last run as came a bit too soon after previous runs - it was his third outing in just over 2 weeks. CD winner here so loves the track and not a hard horse to get fit so heads here ready to run. Well-drawn in stall 2 as well as likes to be up with the pace and Danny Muscutt has won on the horse in the past too. Looks our best chance on the day and we think he should go well.

Prince Rock    WINNER! winner

Great effort from Simon's runner - went down just a short head.


Sat 6th Jun 2020
19:15, Lingfield Park

Had a good winter and was in need of a break albeit enforced. Best form is here and over this distance so although up in class, can't be entirely discounted and seems in great shape.

Mont Kiara 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
19:15, Lingfield Park

Very well-handicapped these days and probably best at 7f, so no surprise to see him involved if he is fit enough on his return.

Moondance 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
18:40, Lingfield Park

One of two in the race for us and both look to have similar small e/w squeaks. Moondance is a bit more exposed than our other runner but has at least tasted victory before. Fit and well though and looking forward to a nice return run and build from there.

Summer Valley 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
18:40, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us and the lesser exposed runner. Handicap debut too for this 3 year-old and we feel now in these races should be a lot more competitive. The step up in trip will also suit, but wide draw not ideal so might need a bit of luck in-running. Small e/w chance.

Madame Peltier 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
18:40, Lingfield Park

Was a bit unlucky last year. This step up in trip will suit and she is well-drawn. She is ahead of her mark for this debut run in a handicap. Hayley Turner rides. Each-way.

Mr Scaramanga 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
18:05, Lingfield Park

Seems in top form as usual, best recent form is over a bit further but well drawn and sure to give his supporters a run for their money. First 3 runners just needed it yesterday.

Corazon Espinado 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
17:30, Lingfield Park

Has a great record here and returns in great shape. Drawn a bit wide (7) but he is a solid performer at this level and likely to go well.

Prince of Arran    WINNER! winner

Another top effort from Charlie's talented stayer.


Sat 6th Jun 2020
14:40, Newcastle

Has been a star for the yard and gets the best chance he has ever had to win a Group race in England today. The track suits (was second in the 2018 Northumberland Plate here) - it will be fun at a decent pace. He's in great form at home and we feel he can go close here today.

Jeremiah 
Sat 6th Jun 2020
14:40, Newcastle

Has a seriously tough ask on his first race in nearly 2 years, but he is talented and is rock-hard fit and ready to run. He will love the track.

Useful sprint handicapper on his day but into a Group race here and we've got a lot to find on the ratings with several of these. Is fit and well though and should run his race but off level weights here and 27lbs inferior to the likes of Judicial, then his task is there for all to see.

Immortal Beloved 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
16:45, Newmarket

Has a very good pedigree (Gleneagles) and has been working well ahead of this debut run. Looks a decent race on paper but a good one to start her off in and I believe she is up to the task and can go well. The betting suggests a lack of depth to the race with the Gosden, Appleby and Varian runners respected, but we could be the each-way value.

The Game Is On 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

First try for us and recent cheek pieces discarded for now. Wide draw (11) and back in trip no help and he would need a career-best to take this - but he trains well and is sure to find his races this summer so still no great surprise if he gets involved.

Gas Monkey 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
16:10, Newmarket

Had a great 2019, with 4 wins but he went up almost 2 stone as a result so life might be tough for him at the start this season - winning 4 times in 2019. He is, however, fit and well, but we'll just have to see how he copes with the rise in class. Dylan Hogan rides and claims a handy 3lbs. 

Brighton Pier 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
15:50, Lingfield Park

Probably one of our better chances on the day. A nice winner at Wolverhampton back in December on his last run and has done well since. Feel he needs to improve a bit more on that run but hopeful of a good run with trip and track fine.

Rydan 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
15:50, Lingfield Park

Back in distance and not very well drawn. But is well at home and the fact he is in a slightly lower grade than he has been running in which could give him e/w chances.

Jumping Cats 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
15:50, Lingfield Park

Only second run for the stable. Disappointing first run when down the field at Kempton back in February - hopefully can improve today. But still probably best-watched on this occasion until we see more on the track.

King Carney 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
15:15, Lingfield Park

A nice runner for us in the Derby Trial here - he currently has an entry in the Irish Derby. Was a very progressive sort last year and finished off last season winning a Listed race on heavy ground over a mile at Pontefract. Very different conditions here as on much quicker ground and up in trip, but he has a lovely attitude and I feel he should stay the extra trip. We also have to give 3lbs away to the others, but I also don't think he'll mind the ground. Looking forward to seeing him back in action and we head here with a live chance in a decent contest with an exciting horse this season for the yard.

Pride Of America 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
15:15, Lingfield Park

Nice to have a runner in the Derby Trial. This horse has around 15lbs to find on the ratings so might be a tall order and would need to improve. But is well and a nice sort that should progress again this season. Hopeful he won't disgrace and we can build from here with hopefully some more options in these sort of races as the year moves on.

Golden Lips    WINNER! winner

Cracking effort from Harry's runner in this Oaks Trial.


Fri 5th Jun 2020
14:40, Lingfield Park

Tough ask here for the Lingfield Oaks Trial - a Listed race. Has plenty to find on the official ratings but we are chasing some black type here with a place finish. On a plus, we are a course winner - the only one in the field - and we are hopeful the cheekpieces will help her. Be delighted with a solid run, but being realistic we are likely to find several too good, with the Gosden pair - Miss Yoda and Lake Lucerne - respected the most.

Hector Loza 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
14:05, Lingfield Park

Good form as a 2 year-old, but got a bit excitable in two top races after that. Will have benefitted from a return here last time and though he may well want further, he needs to prove he can settle first. Has plenty of class and no surprise if he runs with more encouragement today.

Dream Chaser 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
12:55, Lingfield Park

Nice sort that is having his debut run here today - goes well enough at home and won't disappoint, but we still feel he'll come on for the experience - could hit the frame, but all the money, for this 2 year-old race with no form to go on, has been for the Archie Watson runner here - Mighty Gurkha.

Twentysharesofgrey 
Fri 5th Jun 2020
12:55, Lingfield Park

Neat filly from a good family who like the all weather. Looks a strong enough heat to start off in but is well drawn (4) and should stay on if she is not too green and gets on an even keel.

Golden Force    WINNER! winner

Each-way money landed.


Wed 3rd Jun 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

Last seen running third at Chelmsford in Feb. Is a very very quirky sort, but on the flip-side has plenty of ability. Last time out was a big step forward and I feel like we know him much better now. 7f and the quick ground will suit and he should go close. No surprise that the visor is also on as this will also hopefully help him focus.

Global Hope 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
18:00, Yarmouth

In flying form at home and looks our best chance on the day. Course winner here at Yarmouth so that was one of the reasons for coming back here. Bit to prove back up to 7f but on this firm ground we think it's worth another crack. The Scott and Williams horses are respected but we look to be the each-way value in the race.

The Warrior 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
17:05, Kempton Park

Ended before the lockdown in great form - winning twice at Lingfield. CD winner here at Kempton so that's fine and has been ticking over nicely at home during the break. Danny Muscutt gets on well with him and rides again, while draw 1 is fine as he likes to he held up anyway. If the breaks come then still looks well-treated on old form and looks a solid each-way call in an open affair.

Sor Hi Hi 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
16:50, Yarmouth

Starts off in what looks a weak race. The ground would be a concern with her but you never really know until you try it. She will come on for the run and experience though.

Habanero Star 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
16:50, Yarmouth

3 year-old filly that is maturing nicely, but another of ours that is having its first run on the track today. Doing well at home and this 1m trip to start will give us a few indications going forward. In good form, but being its debut outing the horse will learn a lot here.

Rum Baba 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
16:15, Yarmouth

Has some good form last year and will go close if picking up where he left off - when winning at Windsor last July. Ground will be no issue and the straight mile is a good starting point. Expected to have more to come.

Gossiping    WINNER! winner

Another nice TQ View winner this year.


Wed 3rd Jun 2020
15:20, Kempton Park

Off his mark, Gossiping should have reasonable e/w chances.  However, not sure if he is quite the horse he was as his most recent runs have been disappointing.  Like most runners today, he has had a decent break and he generally runs well fresh.

Shyron 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
15:20, Kempton Park

Track and trip are fine but a big sort that might just need the run here after a 271 break. We feel the drop back to 7f will suit too and a fair draw in 8, but Gary's runner - Gossiping - might be tough to beat here.

Blackcurantspangle 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
15:05, Yarmouth

Makes his debut in what looks a strong maiden. He will like the ground and has been working well. A place wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility at a big price, but the horse (and us) will learn a lot more here.

Mehmo 
Wed 3rd Jun 2020
13:55, Yarmouth

First day at school so will learn a lot here - Luke will help in the saddle and the cheekpieces will assist in helping him settle. Going the right way but not really a race to get too involved in. Be delighted with a nice introduction and build from there.

Dubious Affair    WINNER! winner

TOp winner for the Charlie Fellowes yard - looks an improving sort.


Wed 3rd Jun 2020
13:20, Yarmouth

Is new to the yard after coming from the Stoute team and we are still working her out. She should like the ground but there is a big question mark on that over this trip. Got off the mark when winning on her last run at Lingfield on the AW over 1m2f but to me she stays all day so the step up to 1m6f is expected to suit - but we'll really find out today. If I'm right, should not be far away.

Jungle Boogaloo 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
17:40, Kempton Park

First run for the yard after coming from the Andi Brown stable. Fair filly that has settled in well and goes nicely. Not been out since last October but came to us fit and well. Bit of a fact-finding mission but would not be surprised to see her run better than her odds indicate. Small e/w chance.

Atailof Two Cities 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
16:30, Kempton Park

Is a big filly who is ready to run. She will be nice in time but will certainly come on for the run today. The Gosden runner looks the obvious call with two runs already under its belt.

Salsa Dip 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
15:20, Kempton Park

Been ready for a while - seems the type who will benefit for a run though and will want further in time too.

Bowland Park 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
14:45, Kempton Park

First runner for his sire and has done nothing wrong at home. These early 2 year-old races will be very competitive and we'll learn a lot about him here up against some smart-looking types on paper.

Golden Bear 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
14:45, Kempton Park

Is a sharp 2 year-old, who has been working well at home. He has a good draw (2), which is a big plus around here. It will be a hot race and hard to know much about the others, being all 12 runners are unraced! The money has been for the Archie Watson runner - Science - so that one is feared, but looking forward to getting going with mine and will no doubt improve for the experience - but is sharp and would not be shocked if he was placed.

Thechildrenstrust 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
13:35, Kempton Park

Looks a tough race, with a lot of chances, and a bit to answer over this 1m2f trip, with all career wins coming over shorter so far. Fit and well - has been doing plenty of work during the lockdown so won't lack for fitness, it's just whether he's good enough in what looks a competitive race for the grade and over this trip.

Lawmaking 
Tue 2nd Jun 2020
12:45, Newcastle

Versatile sort that was last seen running over the sticks at Taunton back in November. More experienced on the flat though and likes the AW tracks. Seemed to benefit from a wind op last year - running three top races on the flat since. Has a solid and consistent record on the sand surfaces too, with 6 top three (3 wins) finishes from just 11 starts. Has been ticking over nicely at home during the down time (has done plenty of work) and is a CD winner up here at Newcastle. Decent jockey in Hollie Doyle booked to ride (first ride on the horse). The race looks competitive though and the only worry is that he takes a fair bit of getting ready and usually takes a run or two to get back into top form.

Cosmelli 
Mon 1st Jun 2020
17:05, Newcastle

Travelled up well and does act well here on the AW at Newcastle - winning here a few years ago during this month. However, not been on the track since the middle of March and this trip might also be a tad on the sharp side. Looks a tricky race that could revolve around the Stoute and Gosden runners - our horse will certainly improve for this and will also blow away a few cobwebs.

No Anxiety 
Tue 17th Mar 2020
17:25, Wetherby

Is a lovely bred gelding - we trained her mum, who won two bumpers and a couple of novice hurdles. He is from the family of Snap Tie. He has done everything right in his training and worked well when we took him away for a racecourse gallop. He certainly has a future and should run a nice race here on debut.

Ballaquane    WINNER! winner

Solid intro from Oliver's horse.


Tue 17th Mar 2020
17:25, Wetherby

Ballaquane is a well related son of Scorpion and as with all of his sire’s progeny he’s very good looking. He is a galloper and to put him into context of the youngsters we’ve run so far he doesn’t have the speed of Ocean Drifter, he’s more like Norley in his work and he therefore will be exactly what his owner looks for… a staying chaser in the making.

Bee Crossing 
Tue 17th Mar 2020
16:55, Wetherby

Pulled up last time out at Ffos Las but that came over a much shorter trip than this and over fences - found things happening a bit too quick. Is still to win a race under rules though so would like to see a bit more on the track, but is down to his lowest mark and is 5lbs lower than last time out. We think the longer trip will suit and this is the easiest race she's contested for a while, plus the switch back to hurdles should help her confidence too. But she still needs to show more on the track before she becomes a betting proposition.

Adherence 
Tue 17th Mar 2020
16:35, Taunton

Won here back in November so that's one of the reason's we are coming back here - not really backed that up since but we are only 3lbs higher than that win. Does have a bit to prove over this longer trip (3m2f) but has run as if it will suit and hopefully will open up some more doors. We've freshened him up with just over a month off too and seems well for it at home. The in-form Burke horse is the one to beat but we are not without e/w claims. 

Caffe Macchiato 
Tue 17th Mar 2020
14:15, Taunton

French recruit that is having it's debut for the yard - has plenty of experience on the flat and has won twice in the past too. Soft ground is fine and has schooled well at home since joining us. We'll find out more here but a nice sort and delighted to have her in the yard for the Michael Owen racing club. The Fry and Gillard horses are respected but we are not without a chance if his jumping holds out. Each-way.

Ocean Drifter 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
16:50, Hereford

This will be his first run for us having run in three point to points, winning his final start, then being bought by Tim Syder in December. Ocean Drifter is a neat good-looking horse who was quite a buzzy horse when he first arrived here, he’s settled down a lot now but can still be keen at times. He works nicely but as with all my bumper horses I just want him to enjoy the whole experience and for us to learn about him. The Bailey horse looks the obvious danger.

Maries Girl 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
16:50, Hereford

Likeable and workmanlike mare that is having her first run today. We are not expecting any fireworks though here on debut - a nice introduction to racing for her is the priority.

Pleney 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
16:30, Southwell

We've given him a slight break since his last run but is a horse that's enjoyed running off a lay-off in the past. Hoping the ground dries out a tad but it should be okay and we are back down to a mark of 100 - he ran a close third off this rating back in October so a repeat of that run would see him with an e/w chance.

Cold Shoulder 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
16:00, Southwell

Yet to sparkle for us since coming from the Gordon Elliott yard - down another 5lbs from his last run so that helps and we are also trying him over a bit further today. The softer/heavy ground should also help a lot (has won on heavy in Ireland) and is also eased a bit in grade. These factors should hopefully see him run a much better race than recently - each-way claims.

Sastruga 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
15:20, Hereford

The longer trip and the softer ground should help today. Has come on for his last run at Warwick as that came off a few months off and dropped 2lbs as well. Lightly-raced still so will have more to come and hopeful of a step in the right direction today, with the Skelton and Lee runners looking the main threats.

Sparky Stowaway 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
15:00, Southwell

First run back after a long break, and a lot of problems! He is a very buzzy type, and not easy, so this is very much a fact finding mission, and just hoping for a nice safe run, and to learn a bit more about him.

No No Juliet    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Oliver's horse.


Mon 16th Mar 2020
14:50, Hereford

Juliet won her second start over fences at Southwell on ground like this, she jumped well that day and really saw the trip out. It might be best to ignore her last outing at Wetherby when she pulled off a front shoe and finished very sore, she doesn’t have the best feet so it definitely affected her and she took a while to come back right again. Looks a very open little race with all five runners having a say.

Chozen 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
14:30, Southwell

Won two of his six runs over fences, but rather lost his way a bit in last few outings. Has had a wind op since his last run in December and returns on only a pound higher mark than when last winning. Track (CD winner), Trip and ground are fine and he's a horse that's liked going well fresh in the past - so, the 2-3 month break isn't too much of a worry.

Kchou Du Pecos Aa 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
14:20, Hereford

Former Willie Mullins runner that is making his debut for us. Yet to win a race, but has only had four career runs so should have more to offer. Has shown bits and pieces of form but we'll learn a lot from today. Ground will be fine and we are hoping the drop back to 2m (shortest trip he's tried) will suit. Looks between us Imperial Icon and Loughan, but should go well in a race that doesn't seem to have much strength or depth to it.

Baboin    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Tim's charge.


Mon 16th Mar 2020
14:10, Kelso

Solid win at Uttoxeter last time out - carries a penalty for that success so more needed having to give 6lbs away to all the others, but doesn't look the best of races and his ability to handle the heavy ground will be a big plus in these conditions. Charlie takes off a handy 5lbs too. Should go well.

Bassarabad 
Mon 16th Mar 2020
14:00, Southwell

First run back since Oct 18 so a big absence to overcome. A horse that's had a few issues so nice to get going with him again so really just looking for a solid return run here.

Compadre 
Sun 15th Mar 2020
15:55, Market Rasen

Won twice here last year and recent wind op should help him - this is his first run since having it. We feel he's got a fair chance today back over fences, plus at a track he likes, while he also won around this time last year so that gives us hope. 2 1/2 stars.

Connetable 
Sun 15th Mar 2020
15:25, Market Rasen

Not won for a while, but If he can produce his Doncaster run of two starts ago then this would give him a chance. Blinkers are on today and we feel this may help him focus better. Dropping down the ratings and is starting to look very well handicapped, especially with the jockey's 5lb claim too. Yes, a race that revolves around the Murphy favourite but feel we could be the e/w value in the contest.

Invicta Lake    WINNER! winner

Bold bid from Suzy's charge.


Sun 15th Mar 2020
14:50, Market Rasen

Ran a fair race last time in a reasonable handicap. This represents a drop in grade but a couple of unexposed sorts take us on. In good heart and hope he can reach the frame here - each-way.

Twenty Twenty    WINNER! winner

Another win at Fontwell for this horse.


Sat 14th Mar 2020
17:10, Fontwell Park

Decent claims in this today as both his hurdle wins have been here at Fontwell. In good form as he showed when running well in a class 3 at Kempton three weeks ago. Could be his day today.

Broughtons Rhythm    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take second.


Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:45, Uttoxeter

Broughton’s is a star, he’s been consistent all of his career but as he’s so one-paced he always finds one or two to good for him. He’s a very good jumper and a lovely honest horse to deal with.

The Dawn Man 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:35, Fontwell Park

Only three runners and on recent form we look the one to beat. A tight little race still though but we were delighted with his win at Wetherby last time out off a small break. Up in grade and up 8lbs here but we get quite a lot of weight still from the other too in this better race and that will be a big help in the ground. Should go well.

Vocaliser 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:25, Kempton Park

Into the unknown over three miles - needs to settle well to get home and hoping he will appreciate going further and be thereabouts. He is a class horse on his day but has lost his way a bit recently, which is why we are going further so fingers crossed that this will work. Each-way.

Little Boy Boru 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:00, Fontwell Park

Ran very well last time in a poor race - a 6lb rise at his age will make life much harder here but conditions, track and trip should suit. Should go close. 2 1/2 stars.

King Cool 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:00, Fontwell Park

Regularly placed off higher but generally on better ground than this today. Not without a chance at all as a gutsy fellow who always tries. 

Deebaj    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for the Gary Moore yard.


Sat 14th Mar 2020
16:00, Fontwell Park

Dropped in class today but carries a huge weight to be offset by a claiming jockey. Has had a break so just may come on for the run today. Upped in trip as well but shapes as though this should not be a problem. Difficult to split my two in this race today as both horses pretty exposed.

Counteract 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
15:50, Kempton Park

Should be happier on a slightly nicer surface but this is a very hot race and we are just looking to gain experience here - will do better in handicaps.

Dominateur 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
15:35, Uttoxeter

Dominateur has shaped like a stayer in his two wins on soft ground at Chepstow. His last run is best ignored because the ground had dried out so much and as a result he was taken out of his comfort zone early on, he did jump well though even though he was flat out so that’s a positive. Obviously this is a big step up in trip and even if you think they are going to stay you never know for sure until they try, he does tend to race behind the bridle which will definitely give him every chance of getting this mammoth trip.

Generous Day 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
15:15, Kempton Park

In good order at home - ground too soft last time out so had excuses so the drying conditions here a bonus as long as the rain stays away. CD winner at the track too so we know he likes it here and we feel he's still on a competitive mark. Each-way claims at a nice price. 1 1/2 stars.

Thor De Cerisy 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
15:10, Newcastle

Open race with most of the 7 runners looking to have some sort of a chance. We are the only CD winner in the field though and he returned last time off the back of a wind op to run a decent second. Has come out of that race well and off just 3lbs higher will have a decent chance. Ground, trip and track are all okay too. 

Elisezmoi 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
14:50, Fontwell Park

ELISEZMOI can be quirky and yet to win in Britain after picking up a hurdle win in France. Was a bit too fresh at Plumpton his first run after wind surgery so if he settles today he should have a chance with a decent amount of weight taken off his back to compensate for top weight.

Cervaro Mix 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
14:40, Kempton Park

He won nicely at Huntingdon last time out when we finally got a bit of decent ground which he loves, it was also his first race after a cauterisation of his soft palate. The ground today will be softer than ideal but it will be better than most tracks because it’s a light soil, the track and trip will be right for him. Each-way chance.

 

 

Sevarano    WINNER! winner

Solid second behind a useful sort.


Sat 14th Mar 2020
14:05, Kempton Park

This is a re-organised final after the race was abandoned last weekend, I think Sandown would probably have suited Sevarano more but he did win his bumper here. Sevarano has had a good season, he’s been consistent and the races he’s won have worked out well., I’ve put a visor on him just to get him to travel as he can run lazily in his races. He was a good second last time out when giving ten pounds to the winner who went on to win again this week, so it was a good performance. Each-way.

Republican 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
14:05, Kempton Park

Republican was brave when winning at Taunton in December, he really put his head down and battled on to beat a decent favourite by a head. Republican qualified at Ffos Las on desperate ground which he didn’t enjoy, I think this ground will be better for him and he should like the track, the winner of that race was only just beaten in the last at Cheltenham yesterday.

Hit The Rocks 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

Been a frustrating season but I am hoping ground conditions today just may have dried out enough to give HIT THE ROCKS a chance to shine here. Will qualify for handicaps after today but on his form he should have a strong chance in this maiden hurdle and there is nothing negative about his work at home.

Motdepas 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
13:40, Fontwell Park

Claims for HIT THE ROCKS stronger than for this horse - MOTDEPAS - who needs a handicap mark so I suspect best-watched for now. It was unfortunate that he got knocked into a couple of days ago unseating his jockey but the race was yet to get serious and he came out of his race well. I hope with a clear round to see a decent run.

Ballinslea Bridge 
Sat 14th Mar 2020
13:30, Kempton Park

BALLINSLEA BRIDGE has put in some decent efforts but this is his fourth chase start and just may need to find a bit more today. In good form though so let us hope there has been some improvement to give him a chance today. Each-way. 

Samovar 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
19:00, Southwell

Consistent sort at this track and at this level - another close second here last time out here off this mark and a repeat of that run would see him bang-there again. Each-way.

Thomas Macdonagh 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
17:30, Cheltenham

Won two novice hurdles and a handicap prior to Christmas and looked a really progressive type. He came unstuck in a Grade 2 over 3m, when he didn't stay and his wind gave out on him. He's had another wind op since and he comes here fresh and well off a competitive mark. This is obviously a very tough handicap, so we'd be delighted with a top 6 finish as he's also another one to go novice chasing next season, when he'll come into his own too. 

Ozzy Thomas 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
17:10, Fakenham

Tommy should have every chance, but it's no penalty-kick! Has returned this season off a big break to run two cracking races at Cheltenham and Wetherby. Into a Hunters' Chase here so a lot easier than recent Class 3 company, while the step up to 3m around this tighter track will be fine. Should go well and we expect nice run but no foregone conclusion.

Adrrastos 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
16:50, Cheltenham

Corri Lindo    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Henry.


Fri 13th Mar 2020
15:55, Fakenham

Solid third at Sedgefield last time out - but we are down a pound for that and also have Nathan Brennan on today that can claim 10lbs so a lot better off as looked high enough in the weights. Up in trip we expect to help too as stayed on well over 2m1f last time out and has run well over this sort of trip in the past. Each-way chance.

Gossiping 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
15:00, Lingfield Park

Kiltealy Briggs 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
14:50, Cheltenham

is a lovely young horse.  He's won his two novice hurdles this season and was a good 3rd in a Grade 2 over this course and distance. We were aiming him for the EBF Final at Sandown, but with that race rescheduled for Kempton, we though it wouldn't suit him so well, so have rerouted to this race.  He's up against it on handicap ratings, but he is a lovely horse and we'd be delighted if he finished in the top 6. He'll go novice chasing next season and that's where he should excel.

The Fresh Prince 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
14:35, Fakenham

Prince disappointed last time out when pulling up suddenly half a mile from home. Leighton thought he had gone wrong because he lost his action but it must have been a bang as he was absolutely fine immediately after he came to a halt. Prince has not missed a day since and he has continued to work and school as well as ever. Prince showed ability before picking up a leg injury which kept him off the course for a long time. He will be ridden by Conor Shoemark.

Beat The Judge 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
14:10, Cheltenham

The fact he only got beaten 18 lengths by the horse who won the Champion Hurdle, we hope gives him an all right chance - the only concern being the ground as would have likes it a bit quicker. Tough race, but is well and fresh for this with just one run this year. Hopefully can run better than a 100/1 shot!

Coole Well 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
13:55, Fakenham

Coole Well isn't the easiest horse to train, and has his problems.  However, this is a drop in class and back over hurdles he has a chance to win a bad race.

Miss Elsa 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
13:45, Lingfield Park

Claimed out of the Eve Johnson Houghton yard after winning easily at Lingfield last month. Dropping back to a mile here (from 1m 2f) but has plenty of pace and a good turn-of-foot. A nice recruit to the yard and hopeful she can go well again here. Look to have the Dunlop horse to beat, but Ben Curtis a plus in the saddle and we'd be disappointed if she can't take this.

Islay Mist 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
13:45, Lingfield Park

In good form but really our second string in the race and can hopefully go along at a nice pace and set things up for Miss Elsa - would be a huge shock if this one is beating our other runner in the field.

Goshen 
Fri 13th Mar 2020
13:30, Cheltenham

No secret that we think a fair bit of this horse. Has done nothing wrong in winning al three starts over hurdles to date. Impressive again at Ascot last time out, despite losing both front shoes in the race. Jumping getting better by the race and has done well at home since. We feel the track will suit him perfectly and will love the ground. Hopefully everything will work out right and, if so, will have a great chance.

King Athelstan 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Weak race and based on that we should have a reasonable chance. Been running consistently of late and suited by this sort of trip. Track fine too - has run well here in the past. So overall, looks to have a leading chance.

Que Quieres 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Dual winner here and seems much more suited by this way round. Stays well and would be thereabouts if he gets things fall right for him. Stable well below par at the moment but slight encouragement in weak races yesterday.

Cuban Spirit 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

went too quick last time and just burnt himself out. We'll try and ride him differently today - sit in. Danny Muscutt a plus in the saddle and so feel we've got a better chance today - looks an each-way option.

Kilfilum Cross    WINNER! winner

Cracking run from Henry's horse again - another nice TQ View return too.


Thu 12th Mar 2020
17:30, Cheltenham

Was runner-up in this race 12 months ago and this has been the target again all season. We actually get in here off a pound lower rating than last year and we've been pleased with his preparation for this. In great order at home, while the ground will be okay too. Last year's jockey Alex Edwards got the call to ride again so all looks in place for another cracking run - hopefully he can go one place better this time! Each-way.

Los Alamos 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
17:05, Doncaster

Only third run for us since coming over from the Joseph O'Brien yard. Not shown up much so far but has been running in better races and will find this ease in grade more to his liking. 10lbs lower than last time as 5lbs lower and the jockey can claim 5lbs too this time. Drop in trip will be fine and has handled quicker conditions in the past in Ireland so that will suit too. Still learning with him but hopeful of a much better run. 1 1/2 stars, small e/w

Rosie And Millie 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
16:50, Cheltenham

Had a good start to her career and was a cracking second at Haydock in a Listed Mares' race last time out. Has been kept fresh since as that came back in December and seems to have improved at home since. Big jump in class again, but a nice mare and deserves to take her chance. Should run better than a 50/1 shot - still likely to find a ew too good, but this will teach her at lot and help her going forward.

Not Another Muddle 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
16:10, Cheltenham

Super competitive race so a lot with chances. The horse is well though and we get in with a light weight. Not been out since last April but goes well fresh and fit and well at home. Acts on any ground too so that's a help as not sure if there is any more rain due. Also tasted the Festival before when 5th in the Grand Annual so has experienced the hustle and bustle in the past - we are only 2lbs higher here. Happy with the horse though - Average e/w chance in a very open affair.

Weststreet 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
15:55, Hexham

Weststreet won this race last year and he often comes good in the spring for no apparent reason. Weststreet has ability and loves heavy ground, he’s got a bit cute these days and only does what he has to but his latest race at Exeter was a step in the right direction and he had a similar profile at this stage last season. Should go well and looks to have a solid e/w chance.

Copper Gone West 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
14:10, Cheltenham

A very nice horse that has done well for us this season. Been second in two Listed Mares Hurdles recently and that is decent form. More needed against the boys here and rated 2lbs higher but delighted to have a runner in the race and should improve for the step back up to 3m. Tall order to win but may run better than a 50/1 shot!

De Forgotten One 
Thu 12th Mar 2020
13:45, Doncaster

Pulled up the last day at Wetherby, but that came over 3m and should be much more at home over this shorter trip. Charlie rides and claims 5lbs too and the horse is returning to a track he's a proven course winner at. Actually beat Lord Du Mesnil back in October and we all know that horse has improved to frank that form a lot since. Needs to find that level again but if he does here then should go well - each-way.

Recuerdame    WINNER! winner

Good call from Simon.


Wed 11th Mar 2020
20:20, Kempton Park

Slightly more encouraging on return last time and similar conditions here. Wide draw no help but well handicapped now if he can get his confidence back and no surprise to see him run well.

Prince Rock 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
19:50, Kempton Park

Most of his best form is at Lingfield but has had a solid Winter and this is his grade. Should be thereabouts if he gets the race run to suit and he can bounce back from a below par effort last time.

Savitar 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
19:20, Kempton Park

One of two in the race for us - well drawn in 1 and 2lbs lower then last run here (8th). Has come on for that race too as it came off a 2 month break so better expected here. But a horse that has been hard to work out so far. Works well at home too and not quite shown that on the track yet. Decent jockey on today and hopefully can find the key but we are still learning about the horse so we'll fine out more today. Has the ability but just need to eke it out of the horse! Small e/w squeak. 1 1/2 stars.

Di Matteo 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
19:20, Kempton Park

Second runner in the race for us - not been out for around 5 months and also debut for the yard so we'll find out a bit more today - came from the Marco Botti team - but works well and is fit to run. On a plus, has winning form and has run well at the track in the past so a nice recruit for the yard and we are trying her over 1m for the first time to see if that can give us more options too. We'll learn more after today.

Moondance 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
18:50, Kempton Park

Ran poorly last time out at Lingfield after course and distance win here at Kempton a while ago. That form looked solid but MOONDANCE is rather inconsistent. If she is in the right frame of mind, she could go close today.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Place money landed at 20/1.


Wed 11th Mar 2020
18:20, Kempton Park

Easy winner at Chelmsford two starts ago - didn't build on that last time here but that came in a better race so the drop back to a Class 3 will help. Trip is fine and has run well here in the past too. Draw a slight negative, but will have plenty of time to get over that. The horses remains in great order so each-way chance with George riding and taking off a handy 5lbs - E/W.

Norley 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:40, Huntingdon

Norley ran better than his placing suggests on his first outing at Warwick when a staying on fifth. He can be a bit gawky at times and he just completely missed the break, then when Leighton was threading his way through the field he had all sorts of traffic problems, only really getting a clear run two furlongs from the line and the first four had flown by then.These things can happen in any races but especially with youngsters that are looking at everything going on around them, the main thing is he didn’t have a hard race and he came back from the experience full of himself. Each-way chance.

 

 

Dorking Lad 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:40, Huntingdon

Debut run and been a slow process getting to the track. Will learn more after his first run today.

Let Me Entertain U 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:30, Cheltenham

Delighted with his win at Exeter on debut last month on heavy ground. Is a very likeable type and as a 4yo we get a handy 7lbs here. Has some out of that race well and won't mind it i the ground gets any softer. Up significantly in grade here though and would be a huge ask. But a nice horse for the future and this will teach him a lot.

Confounding 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:20, Kempton Park

Was disappointing at Lingfield last time out and to be honest I am not entirely sure why she didn't turn up that day. Things will become much easier for her once she is able to run in handicaps though.

Mont Kiara 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:15, Lingfield Park

Hit form at the start of the year and not had much go right for him since. Still well handicapped, he ran well at Kempton last week and could easily be involved again though drawn wide here.

Beyond Redemption 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:05, Huntingdon

BEYOND REDEMPTION has been off the track a while but this looks decent ground today compared to recent months which will help. I hope to see him run well but just might come on for the run. 1 1/2 stars.

Motdepas 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
17:05, Huntingdon

Best watched until this horse gets a handicap mark and needs to come on for the experience.

Clemencia 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
16:50, Cheltenham

Nice sort that is having his first run for the yard. Has run 9 times in total though and won once over hurdles in Ireland. Trips and ground are fine, but obviously in a bit a the deepend here, but is fit and well and won't disgrace.  

Timcoda 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
16:25, Huntingdon

Has been threatening to win a race. He's off the right kind of mark to win, but rather needs one to fall his way. He's been second and third this season (not beaten far) and fell at the second last when running a good race. The step back in trip on drier ground may see him to his best advantage this afternoon and he's got a chance with some luck in-running.

Kingswell Theatre 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
16:10, Cheltenham

CD winner around this track and over these fences so that's a help - loves this sort of test. Was 5th here in November too but not quite fired since. Would need the ground to continue to dry out to help his chance, but goes without saying we've bundles to find with the likes of Tiger Roll - we are rated 42lbs inferior! So, just hoping for a solid run round and anything else a plus, but the ground has gone against us too. In great heart and form but very much up against it here.

Fact of The Matter 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
16:10, Cheltenham

Corazon Espinado 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
15:55, Lingfield Park

In top form and arguably 7f suits him better than the mile. Slightly wide but has plenty of early pace and could easily be involved in what looks a competitive event.

Chain Smoker 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
15:45, Huntingdon

Did well to score at Fontwell on his second run over fences and has to now endure a 6lb hike. However, the step up in trip just may suit and strong claims today. Each-way.

Some Finish  
Wed 11th Mar 2020
15:45, Huntingdon

Not shown much of late - Tongue strap fitted today, hoping to work the oracle! But we'd need to see it on the track first.

Galactic Power 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
15:05, Huntingdon

Won this race a few years ago - fresh and well, plus acts well round this track. 2miles maybe be a bit sharp for him these days though, but 10lbs off with the jockey's claim too. Small e/w chance at a venue we know he likes. 1 1/2 stars.

Traffic Fluide 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
14:50, Cheltenham

Talented horse and looked to have retained his form over fences albeit crashing out at the last on his return after a lengthy absence. Target is the Grand National, but fairly well-handicapped over hurdles and although this could be considered a prep run is not without a chance and be good to get TRAFFIC FLUIDE out there in this competitive field.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Place money landed.


Wed 11th Mar 2020
14:35, Lingfield Park

Deserves a win and knows his way round here. Yet again drawn wide buit he should be able to find a race like this and sure to be thereabouts if things go right for him.

Mrsgrey 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
14:25, Huntingdon

Doesn't look the best of races despite being upped in grade here. We are also racing against her own sex here so that will help and dropped a few pounds from last time too. Track will suit and experienced 7lb conditional so that helps. Each-way

Tara Well 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
14:25, Huntingdon

Career low mark, and 10lb off with the jockey claim so that helps a lot -first run back from wind surgery but that went well and hopefull of a nice run with conditions fine. Each-way.

Subliminal 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
13:55, Lingfield Park

All his best form is here and jockey knows him well. Not suited by different trip and track last twice so could easily get back to winning ways in this type of race.

Thats A Shame 
Wed 11th Mar 2020
13:20, Lingfield Park

Handicap debut today and looks to be fairly treated. I hope to see THAT'S A SHAME going close to winning, as although fairly unexposed I would be disappointed if he can't be in the frame today at a nice price.

Achy Breaky Heart 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
17:10, Sedgefield

Miss Mahmite 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
17:10, Sedgefield

Has quite a nice pedigree and shows a degree of ability at home - but she is quite weak. She's got a nice attitude and should have a future when she is stronger. This, however, won't be the strongest of bumpers so she may squeak into a place.

Foxes Flyer 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
17:00, Southwell

Sociologist 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
17:00, Southwell

Just the one win from 24 runs but often placed. Below-par last time, but that came in a better graded race that he's been running in so this drop back two grades will help. Stays further than this 1m4f trip too, so we'll make full use of that but as I say a lot with this horse he's more of an e/w / place option than a win bet - the in-form Going Native looks the obvious one for us all to beat.

Moveonup 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
16:25, Southwell

Taking his racing well - been placed in the top three in all his last 7 races. Likes to race up with the pace and that will be the plan again here. George has won on the work in the past too and is back in the saddle to claim a handy 5lbs. We are stepping up in trip here though to 6f, but stays on well on his races over 5f so hoping it will give us options. Another good run on the cards.

Robero 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
16:25, Southwell

Been in good order over the winter and since the turn of the year - didn't quite see out the 7f last time so the drop back to 6f here will suit. Was second over this trip off 2lbs lower last month and a repeat of that run would see him in the shake-up in an open-looking race. 1 1/2 stars.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Spot on from Gay and a nice double on the day.


Tue 10th Mar 2020
15:05, Southwell

Second the last twice here so that experience of the surface will be a big plus against some lesser experienced runners. Well at home after last run and should be involved again - hopefully can get off the mark today.

Capricious Madam 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
15:05, Southwell

Nice filly, but debut run here so can be expected to learn a lot from this - but really one for the future.

Henry The Sixth 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
15:05, Southwell

Second runner in the race for us - the more experienced of my two with three runs, but likely to be better once getting a handicap mark.

Lemon Hill 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
13:55, Sedgefield

Showed a modicum of ability in Irish Points - but looked moderate on hurdling debut for us at Lingfield. We've tweaked her wind and treated her for ulcers since, so there should be some improvement today but she's probably one for the low-grade handicaps.

Mukha Magic 
Tue 10th Mar 2020
13:45, Southwell

In fine fettle at the moment - winning his last two in good style here. Up another 4lbs here and that looks fair enough based on the fact he won by 4 1/2 lengths last time. Same jockey, same trip, same track and hopefully the same result!

Salsa Dip 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
20:10, Wolverhampton

Ready for a day out - will be better suited by a bit further in due course.

Achy Breaky Heart 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
17:35, Stratford upon Avon

A really nice filly who we have been trying to find some decent ground for!! It seems that it will never happen so are having to bite the bullet & just get on with it! She is working well at  home, but the ground could be an issue.

Stormingin 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
16:50, Kempton Park

Of the two of mine in this race I would think STORMINGIN has the stronger claim today. STORMINGIN is diificult to win with and his track record will tell you that but his last two runs have been decent so let us hope he can get to the line in first spot today.

Foxes Flyer 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
16:50, Kempton Park

Probably best-watched on his debut for us and I would expect better chance from stable companion STORMINGIN. I hope to see him run well though with first time blinkers so possible FOXES FLYER could scrape into a place.

Dovils Date 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
16:50, Kempton Park

4lbs lower than last time but was well back that day at Wolverhampton so needs to find some old sparkle still. Trip and track is fine, but would like to see more on the track again before being more confident.

Seaston Spirit    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Oliver.


Mon 9th Mar 2020
16:40, Taunton

He won two pretty average races from a lowly mark by wide margins therefore obviously he took a hike in the handicap. He ran in a better quality race last time out at Chepstow and he was never going, with hindsight I’m not sure he was a hundred per cent right as he was very quiet afterwards. One or two of my horses were definitely affected by their flu jab in January and I think he’s one of them. Seaston has been third around here before and I wouldn’t say it’s his ideal track but race and ground conditions are exactly right. Only 6 runners but fair e/w chance.

Ruby Yeats    WINNER! winner
Mon 9th Mar 2020
15:45, Plumpton

Looks to be rather a moody mare at times but to be fair RUBY YEATS has had to endure a season on ground that she is not in love with. Won rather well at Fontwell last time out when seemingly in a hopeless position so RUBY YEATS can spring a surprise. Chasing in these conditions brings out the worst in her so again over hurdles today so let us hope she is bang there at the finish.

Antony 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
15:20, Stratford upon Avon

Decent ground would be preferable for Antony and he has won on soft. Unfortunate that he did not get very far last time out when we felt he was returning to winning ways judging by his homework. This looks an opportunity and hope to see him run well.

Age of Wisdom 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
15:10, Plumpton

Seems too good an opportunity to miss to take on this small field although I appreciate there are several far superior horses to take on. AGE OF WISDOM is a quirky type and I often feel there is more to come from him. In a good mind at present - so it appears, so pleased to let him take his chance with a light weight on his back in testing ground.

Note Bleu    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Gary.


Mon 9th Mar 2020
14:30, Kempton Park

NOTE BLEU ran an absolute blinder last week at Kempton. This race was only pulled together on Saturday, so fair enough this race was not on the planning sheet - however, looks to be an opportunity for NOTE BLEU to get off the mark today unless something in this race is going to be useful that I would know little about.

GA Law 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
14:10, Stratford upon Avon

Ga Law carries a penalty for his debut win in France. We like this horse a lot, but he will be twice the horse next season after a summer holiday. A half-brotgher to a good horse we used to train called Val De Law, who was a Graded performer. He jumps nicely, and his work has been good, so we’re looking forward to getting him out on the track. Carries a penalty here in a competitive race and lacks experience - but he's a lovely horse for the future and we'd like to think he can run a big race - this should set him up nicely for a tilt at a big prize later in the season too.

Iconic Muddle    WINNER! winner

Easy peasy for Gary's horse.


Mon 9th Mar 2020
14:00, Plumpton

ICONIC MUDDLE should be the one to beat today. Solid performer and unlucky to bump into a particularly well handicapped horse last time out at Newbury. If in the same frame of mind he should take this and his home work suggests all good.

Just In A Muddle 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
14:00, Plumpton

Clear that his stablemate ICONIC MUDDLE is the favoured horse in this today, but I expect an improved run from this horse today. A 'Muddle' 1-2 would be nice!

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Mon 9th Mar 2020
13:55, Kempton Park

CD winner that loves the track here - down a few pounds from last run and also down in grade here too so that will help. Nice draw in 4 and Danny Muscutt riding. In good form but feel we've got a fair e/w chance here in a race that looks to revolve around the Carroll horse.

Sopran Thor 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
17:10, Warwick

Little experience and has needed time. I suspect best-watched today and hopefully this run will bring him on as he looks to be a solid galloper.

Hogans Height 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
16:40, Warwick

Hogan's Height won the Grand Sefton over the National fences last time out in December off this mark, and the plan off the back of that run is the Grand National in April.  This is very much his prep run for that big event, so we'll be happy for a nice clear round, and back safe and sound and he'll improve off the back of this effort.

Detatched 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
16:10, Warwick

Another of ours with a fair chance today. Ran a good second to a fair sort - Main Fact - two runs back here and only 2lbs higher. A repeat of that run would see us go well here. Another of ours that looks to have fair place claims.

Twycross Warrior 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
16:10, Warwick

Just got run out of the places last time when 4th at Huntingdon - still a decent effort and only beaten just under 3 lengths. Drop in trip here will help and Lorcan Murtagh takes over in the saddle. Had a nice break since and so we feel another good run is on the cards. Should be thereabouts. E/W.

Alrightjack 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:55, Southwell

Alrightjack has some excellent form to his name last season and was a very creditable 4th in a Grade 3 on seasonal debut this term, but has disappointed the last two times.  However, both runs have been over 3m, and the drop in class, the drop in trip, and a recent wind op should help his chance today, and he looks overpriced. Definite each-way chance.

Western Climate    WINNER! winner

Top winner for the Henry Oliver yard.


Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:35, Warwick

Been running well of late - four top-three finishes in recent runs. Stays well so hopeful this step up to 3m5 will suit. Also acts well in the ground. Very open race with many chances but the horse is well so we head here hopeful of a nice run. Each-way claims.

Book of Gold 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:35, Warwick

Book won nicely here in early December under a brilliant ride by Leighton, he got him into a great rhythm, he jumped well and it never looked in doubt. The following race is best ignored, he missed the break and then decided it was all a bit too much like hard work and I’m afraid he didn’t try over hard. Book is frustrating at times, he does have ability but he does also need to be in the right frame of mind. He usually jumps well and he loves heavy ground.Each-way price.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:25, Southwell

Oud Metha Bridge has run well here in the eyeshields - this sort of race should suit him as he goes well for the girls. We could have done with a wider draw but he seems in good form and hopefully has an e/w chance at a big price.

Avantgardist 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:05, Warwick

Been running okay of late without setting the world alight. Dropped another 3lbs for his latest run at Ludlow but we are the only proven course and distance winner in the race after landing this actual race in last year - we are only 3lbs higher. Each-way chance.

Laurie Come On 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
15:05, Warwick

Laurie was very disappointing last time out at Exeter for no apparent reason, the ground was horrible but I wouldn’t necessarily use that as an excuse. Previous to that his first two runs over hurdles had shown promise. Laurie is a lazy type of horse who will make up into a staying chaser eventually, he’s had little racing for a six year old but he was initially very backward and suffered from continual lung infections as a youngster. Each-way price.

 

 

Tractor Fred 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
14:50, Southwell

Tractor Fred has been fairly consistent this season and was narrowly beaten off a pound lower at Plumpton in December.  Freshened up since a below par performance last time out, he should have every chance in a 'winnable race'.

Vorashann 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
14:00, Warwick

VORASHAAN has certainly been in the best company for his experience so far over hurdles and has had to cope with testing conditions. This could be easier and so possible we can see more competition from him.

Battleofthesomme 
Sun 8th Mar 2020
13:50, Southwell

Battleofthesomme won his first two starts for us, but the handicapper crucified him as a result. He has struggled off higher marks, but is gradually coming back down to a winning mark and shouldn't be too far away in this race that lacks much depth.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Sat 7th Mar 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

First try at 1m2f so things will happen a bit quicker for him tonight. A lot will depend on the run of the race but we're hopeful of another good run by this solid performer.

Engrave 
Sat 7th Mar 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Has form around the track but probably in weak races and has been handicapped on those runs, so maybe rated too high here. We will learn more today, but will probably be suited in a lower grade.

Caen Na Coille    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Charlie.

Made a nice debut for my yard at Lingfield and I feel like we learnt a lot about her. Hopefully we can put that experience to good use this evening on a track that should suit her better. Each-way

Spanish Mane 
Sat 7th Mar 2020
17:25, Chelmsford

Spanish Mane ran well the last run in a better race - she has now dropped into this grade for the first time. Ran well here before despite missing the break. Good draw in 4 so hoping she has a good each-way chance at a nice price. Dylan Hogan takes off a handy 3lbs too.

Lara Trot 
Sat 7th Mar 2020
17:15, Hereford

Last seen winning at Leicester, but that came back in Jan 19. First run back after a life-threatening problem so based on that just looking for a nice return run from her and go from there.

Durouyn

Big fine horse - was only 15 lengths off a useful sort in Bullionaire at Uttoxeter back in Decemeber. Making chase debut here and also handicap debut - to us the mark looks a bit harsh so not really a betting race - unless the race falls apart. We'd just be delighted with a solid run and build form there. The Skelton and Williams horses look the ones to fight this out.

Donladd 
Sat 7th Mar 2020
14:20, Hereford

Donladd showed promise in both his bumper runs last season, but we’ve had a nightmare time with him this winter, hence the long gap since his last race. It’s mainly been annoying little niggles until we realised he needed a wind operation before Christmas. Donladd is a horse that works nicely at home and I thought he could be above average last season and even though he ran ok in his bumpers he didn’t fulfil his promise, maybe that was weakness or maybe his wind time will tell. He schools very well at home. Each-way chance.

 

 

Krystallite    WINNER! winner

No chance with the winner but a nice return run.


Fri 6th Mar 2020
20:30, Wolverhampton

Well drawn in 1 as likes to get on with things - track is fine and on a fair mark with Jon's 5lbs claim too. Is returning from almost a year off though so might just need this to blow away the cobwebs.

Kentucky Kingdom 
Fri 6th Mar 2020
18:00, Wolverhampton

Has run well here and we hope a wind op might help him. Could make the frame at a decent price with Dougie Costello riding. Each-way.

Robsdelight    WINNER! winner
Fri 6th Mar 2020
18:00, Wolverhampton

Nice draw in 4  and back down to last winning mark - we've also got Toby on to claim 5lbs today. Needs to bounce back from two poor recent runs though and also first run at the track - so a bit to prove. We think the track will suit though, but overall the horse has fallen a bit out of love with his racing and no matter what myself and the owners have decided that today will be his last race - he'll be retired after this.

Barntown 
Fri 6th Mar 2020
16:30, Ffos Las

I think one of my better chances on the day - smooth winner on similar ground at Lingfield back in November and we are only 4lbs higher. Had a few excuses since running over shorter and in a better race last time. Back in grade will help and seems well after a month off. Should go well.

Nickname Exit    WINNER! winner

Great run from Henry's horse.


Fri 6th Mar 2020
15:55, Ffos Las

Good horse back in the day in Ireland when with Mullins and Elliott at various stages. A horse that's had his issues since though - just four runs since April 18. Returned at the end of January at Chepstow but way down the field that day. 4lbs lower and longer trip will suit and won't mind the ground. We've managed to book Dickie Johnson too, so that will be an obvious help. The Gordon runner - Pres - looks the likely winner, but we'd be delighted with a step forward here and feel we've got an e/w chance.

Freedelivery 
Fri 6th Mar 2020
15:25, Ffos Las

Won well here two runs back in a maiden hurdle but not built on that since. Hoping the return to this track will help and won't mind the ground and the drop back to 2m. 7lbs lower than last time and in what looks a very average race - we are the only hurdles winner in the line-up I think - we expect better. Each-way.

Islay Mist 
Fri 6th Mar 2020
15:10, Chelmsford

Drawn well today in 3 and ran better than finishing position suggests last time over 7f - just got tired in the closing stages. Drop back to 6f will suit and Gavin continues in the saddle - his 7lb claim is a bonus. Taking on a few in-form runners, but feel we've got a small e/w chance at a nice price. 1 1/2 stars

Madera Mist    WINNER! winner
Fri 6th Mar 2020
14:50, Ffos Las

Had an off day last time - didn't jump well and then also got hampered before being pulled-up. That came over 3m but we feel the drop back in trip (2m3f) will be fine in this ground - does stay a bit further. Still lightly-raced so will have more to come and been freshened-up with a few months off. Taking on some in-form rivals but feel the horse can put in an improved effort today as seems well after it's small break. Each-way.

Bee Crossing 
Fri 6th Mar 2020
14:50, Ffos Las

Acts well on soft and heavy ground but plenty to prove at the moment after some poor recent runs. On a plus, has dropped 5lbs since that last run and is looking fairly well-treated. Had a small break and well at home but need to see it on the track again first before being more confident.

Legends Ryde    WINNER! winner

Stayed on really well.


Fri 6th Mar 2020
14:15, Ffos Las

Is a lovely mare. She showed some excellent bumper form - including winning and then being placed in a Listed contest at Cheltenham. She disappointed on hurdling debut but after a subsequent wind op she ran well to be secon two weeks ago. With her confidence restored she should continue to progress and should develop into a smart hurdler. This race is small on numbers but we take on a 127-rated mare who will take some beating - but that horse has a penalty so with that we must have a fair chance.

Chitra 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
18:00, Newcastle

Last of seven but only beaten three lengths in a Listed race recently - a repeat of that level would see her going close here.

Mukha Magic    WINNER! winner

Easy winner for Gay.


Thu 5th Mar 2020
16:50, Southwell

Came with a well-times late run to get the better of a hot favourite last time here. Up 5lbs and George can only claim 5lbs here (7lbs last time) so more needed. However, in great form and over this 1m4f trip again we expect another big run and we'd be disappointed if he's not going in again.

Waikiki Waves 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
16:45, Wincanton

Disappointing last couple of runs. Hopefully the blinkers will have an immediate effect and see him back to winning ways as certainly capable in a race like this. Won't mind the soft ground either and looks the e/w value in an open affair.

Samovar    WINNER! winner

Solid e/w run.


Thu 5th Mar 2020
16:20, Southwell

Very consistent sort at this level - 8 races without a win, but been placed many times in those and now only 2lbs higher than last win. Loves the track and been taking his racing well this winter. Luke Morris, who rode last time, remains in the saddle, while this ease in grade should help. Should be thereabouts again in an open race - each-way claims but only 7 runners.

Cilaos Glace 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
16:10, Wincanton

Cilaos has had a wind operation since his last race. He didn’t make a noise at Leicester but we were suspicious that he had cut out so quickly so we had him checked out. With hindsight he didn’t get home in his first race either but we thought that was a lack of race fitness on the soft ground. Cilaos showed potential last season but because he was such a keen horse he had been a work in progress, we thought he would go on to be a better chaser as he’s a big type who has always schooled so nicely. He’s been due to run several times over the last couple of weeks only for the meeting to be abandoned and as he’s had time off due to wind surgery we’ve decided to revert to hurdles today, it’s pointless winning a novice chase now.

Noble Account 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
15:45, Southwell

Has plenty of ability bit is quite a tricky ride - he pulled up the last time when he hit the front. He should travel well but needs to take his time - probably better suited by further but may be okay over 1m here. More hopeful of a good run than confident. 1 1/2 stars

Footloose 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
15:35, Wincanton

Second race back after a wind op - got a bit tired last time over 2m7f, but has come on for that. Has shown glimmers of form, but hasn't been an easy horse to train. He jumps well and ran okay on chasing debut last time. I think there will be more to come from him in time and even though this looks a slightly easier race than last time and we've given him 4 weeks to get over that last race. Better than last time expected but isn't one to totally trust. 1 1/2 stars.

Clondaw Bisto 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
15:35, Wincanton

Normally goes well for Tom O'Brien and travelled well throughout the race last time - looking the winner most of the way and just getting tired after the last in a marathon trip in gruelling conditions. Will act on soft/heavy but does have a bit of weight to carry. However, this is a drop in grade and although he can't be relied upon totally I am hopeful of a place at least.

Champagne Mondays 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
15:10, Southwell

Seems to be coming into form again after a close fourth at the end of last month. We are one of just two proven course winners in the field and we putting up Jon Fisher to help and claim a handy 5lbs. Not a great contest but very competitive for the grade. Feel we've got a nice each-way chance.

Dr Oakley 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
15:00, Wincanton

Great winner last time out at Wincanton and has come out of that race very well. Carries a 7lb penalty for that success but we feel there is still more to come from him now he's got that first win under his belt. Slight drop back in trip is fine and will love the soft ground. Anther bold bid on the cards, with the Tizzard horse looking the danger.

Brute Force 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
14:35, Southwell

Will benefit from the run and the surface here always an unknown until tried.

Mickey Buckman 
Thu 5th Mar 2020
14:25, Wincanton

Very consistent horse. Will definitely benefit from the step up in distance. Another solid run on the cards and won't mind the ground, but has got two to beat - the Nicholls and Murphy horses. Each-way.

Mont Kiara 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
20:15, Kempton Park

Not had things fall right for him in last few starts and is probably getting on a bit as well. Has won here over this distance and well drawn (5) so no complete surprise to see him bounce back tonight.

Pride of Angels 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
19:45, Kempton Park

Seems in great form at home. Would like to think she has a good chance at a nice price. However, stall 14 is not ideal and could catch her out here.

Note Bleu    WINNER! winner

Well clear of the third.


Wed 4th Mar 2020
18:45, Kempton Park

Ran with promise last time, when fourth here on only his third career run so should have more to come. Might be a couple too strong for him today, but seems to be going the right way and may run into a place with Ryan an obvious plus in the saddle.

Brambledown 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
18:15, Kempton Park

Has been working well at home. Is returning to the flat after some solid runs over hurdles through the winter. Think the step up in trip should suit him and has a solid e/w chance.

Fronsac 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:45, Kempton Park

Needs to find a bit more upped a couple of furlongs for a new jockey.

Ballydoyle 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:45, Kempton Park

Has been working well.Returns to the flat after a nice enough run over hurdles previously. Think the conditions should suit him and should have good e/w chance.

Dinsdale 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:45, Kempton Park

Lot more needed based on last run, but has had a wind op since so we are hoping that will help. Fact-finding mission here though being stepped up in trip too.

Anythingforlove    WINNER! winner

Nice prospect for the Jamie Snowden yard.


Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:25, Catterick

Won well on her racecourse debut at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve. She is a well-bred filly and looks to have a bright future. It's never easy carrying a penalty in bumpers but she receives a sex allowance which negates her penalty here. So, it looks the right race for us to try. She was the best form on offer, but obviously we don't know how good the newcomer from the Jonjo stable may be.

Mythical Madness 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:15, Kempton Park

Never found his form for us so far but is at least well-handicapped tonight with a light weight to carry. Should be suited by conditions and seems to retain all his ability just needs to get his confidence back.

Alramz 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

Yet to win a race from 8 runs but took a big step forward last time out at Kempton when 4th of 13. Dropped a pound for that but that run did come 4 months ago. A horse that goes well fresh though - not a hard horse to get fit. We are trying to open up a few new avenues by running him over this longer 2m trip. We think it will suit - if he does get home then must have a nice e/w chance.

The Warrior    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for the Lee Carter yard.


Wed 4th Mar 2020
16:00, Lingfield Park

Gutsy winner at Lingfield last time out over this trip. Only 2lbs higher and still well-treated. Can, however, be a bit of a quirky sort so not certain to replicate that run - despite being more than capable of doing so. Seems well at home though and last two runs here at Lingfield have been good one - one of those horses that makes his own mind up, but each-way claims with Danny Muscutt riding again.

London Arch 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
15:30, Lingfield Park

Is a pretty decent horse and he won nicely last time out - getting stronger the further he went. He faces the horse who finished third behind him but we have to carry a penalty. However, you have to think the step up in trip would suit us better.

Emenem 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
15:00, Lingfield Park

Well-handicapped now and has good form here. Slightly backward step last time and better when it gets warmer but should be thereabouts in a minor event. Seems in good shape.

Touchthesoul 
Wed 4th Mar 2020
15:00, Lingfield Park

Been running well over hurdles. Think the return to the AW will suit him - well at home and should have a nice e/w chance.

Cape Greco    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Gay.


Tue 3rd Mar 2020
19:00, Southwell

Ran a blinder here last week (2nd) - ran better than we thought as that came off a break too. Same mark and we've another claiming jockey in the plate - Toby Eley rides this time and takes off 5lbs. Dropping back to 7f here is no issue either as led for much of the way last time over a mile and seems to have come out of that race well. Looks an open race with plenty of chances, but providing he doesn't bounce then hopeful of another big run and we think he'll go well. Each-way.

Moveonup 
Tue 3rd Mar 2020
17:00, Southwell

A new horse since reverting back to 5f - his form over this trip of late reads 1-3-1-2-3-2! Up another 3lbs for his recent close second here in a similar race - beaten just a nose by Red Stripes, who runs again too. We are meeting that runner on similar terms so should be close between us again here. Nice draw in 1 helps too and we've a useful 5lbs claiming jockey on to help with his weight. Another tight race, but is taking his racing well so no reason why he can't be in the mix again and hopefully gain revenge on Red Stripes and grab his second career success at the track. 2 1/2 stars.

The Dawn Man    WINNER! winner

Loved the extra yardage - this will open a lot more doors.


Mon 2nd Mar 2020
16:45, Wetherby

Another that's come from the Claire Dyson yard and is having it's first run for us. Point winner but is yet to win under rules (14 runs). Had been rated a lot higher in the past and this doesn't look a great race so that should hopefully give us a better chance here - 6lbs lower than last time. Soft ground is also fine for the horse and hoping to open up a few news doors by stepping up in trip here to 3m. We'll learn a lot about the trip but the horse is well. Having said that, has only been working 'okay' at home since coming to us and does have his issues so not one to particularly rely on. If staying would have e/w claims but very much a 'fact-finding' mission today.

Envol De La Cour 
Mon 2nd Mar 2020
15:40, Wetherby

Only second run for us after coming from the Claire Dyson yard. Down the field on that first run but has improved at home for it, but didn't jump well that day. A return to fences should be a big plus. Ground could be a slight worry, but has won on very soft ground in France so that gives us hope. Also dropped 5lbs in the ratings. More needed and even though a better run is expected from last time we feel he's got a bit to prove today.

Thor De Cerisy 
Mon 2nd Mar 2020
15:10, Wetherby

Looks between us Young Lieutenant and Diodorus. Thor was a nice winner at Newcastle back in November (2 runs ago) but flopped next time at Ffos Las - can often do that for no reason, so not one to totally trust. Has had a wind op since and hopeful that will help. First run back since that operation so we'll find out more here and the horse should gain some more confidence. The ratings, however, suggest we've got a bit to find with the Greatrex horse, that is rated 3lbs higher than us and we have to give 7lbs too. Trip, ground and track are fine though and if the favourite runs below-par again the hopeful we can pick up the pieces.

The Crazed Moon 
Mon 2nd Mar 2020
14:35, Wetherby

Solid effort last time out at Market Rasen when second - that came on her first run for the yard and we get in here off the same mark. That taught us a fair bit too and one of the reasons we are dropping her back in trip here as just get a bit tired last time over 2m3f. This race also doesn't look as strong as that last one. Cheekpieces are also on for the first time here and that should help too. Has won on heavy in the past over hurdles so the softer conditions are also a plus. Should go well and looks one of our better chances on the day.

Fortunate Fred 
Sun 1st Mar 2020
17:30, Huntingdon

Ran well on debut to be third in a bumper at the track in January. That looks the best form on offer here and as he will have improved off the back of that run, he should have a decent chance here today. Obviously we don't know how good the newcomers or the Irish pointer is but we are happy with our chap.

 

Darlyn 
Sun 1st Mar 2020
16:50, Sedgefield

Consistent sort that is a past CD winner here. Won well after getting going late on to get up on the line at Chepstow so the return to a longer trip is fine. Up 4lbs for that but top claimer is taking off 10lbs as he's got a lot of weight. Jockey has also won on him in the past and the horse has been freshened up with a few months off. Think he's got a great chance in a race we also won last year with Hard To Forget.

Hard To Forget 
Sun 1st Mar 2020
15:15, Sedgefield

Is in good order after unseating last time out at Plumpton - but won well the two times before that. Had time to get over that (2 months) and returns to a track he's won at in the past. Conditions look ideal and we feel he's a progressive sort that will have more to come. Feel we've got a live chance here today.

Little Boy Boru    WINNER! winner

Top run and only just failed to get the job done!


Sun 1st Mar 2020
14:50, Huntingdon

Came out of his last race well and hopeful of another good performance with this drop in grade. Can't have the ground soft enough and stays strongly. Big field but he should be thereabouts at the finish.

Bolton Boy 
Sun 1st Mar 2020
14:50, Huntingdon

Fell last time out so needs to bounce back from that - but we've given the horse 2 months off to get over that and seems none-the-worse for that tumble. Same mark here and trip is fine - if the ground dries out a tad that would help, but still a young horse (6) so should have more to offer in what doesn't look the best of races. Small e/w chance. 1 1/2 stars.

War Empress    WINNER! winner

Solid effort from Julia's horse.


Sat 29th Feb 2020
19:30, Southwell

Has been improving with racing and a step up in trip. She looked like the 2m should suit when running over 1m6f at Southwell last time. Ben Curtis riding is a plus, so should at least have an e/w chance.

Ubla 
Sat 29th Feb 2020
19:00, Southwell

Nice winner over 7f at Kempton last time out - back on the fibresand here and despite never winning here has run well on the surface in the past. Up in grade and up 5lbs means more is required but Luke continues in the saddle and knows the horse very well. Nice draw in 2 too so if building slightly on that last run then every chance of going well again as does stay a bit further than this and that will help on the fibresand. Overall, the horse is well and we think we've got a great chance here today.

Sociologist 
Sat 29th Feb 2020
18:30, Southwell

Always runs his race but is a hard horse to win with - often placed and often finds 1 or 2 too good. Another solid run last time here over this trip and only 2lbs higher so a repeat of that run - only got overturned in the final stages - would give us another each-way chance. Hoping the rise in grade will help too as we get in with only 8st 8lbs to carry - that's 12lbs less than last time. Each-way.

Paseo 
Sat 29th Feb 2020
18:00, Southwell

Paseo fell out of the stalls in his most recent flat race at Kempton it was only his second flat race and he looked like a jumper, racing in a relaxed style and then staying on at the finish. Paseo wants decent ground so therefore we haven’t been able to run him over hurdles for a while. He’s running here to keep him ticking over and after today he will have a handicap mark, we will then have the option of running him on the flat if these desperate conditions persist...it’s just another string to his bow and it gives us options.

Needs to show some old sparkle has been a bit below-par of late. On a plus, is dropping down the ratings and Rhys takes off a handy 3lbs but probably each-way at best until we see a bit more sparkle on the track. 1 1/2 stars.

Amarillo Star

A nice pot on offer here today. Is incredibly consistent, no matter what the opposition. Remains well in himself and last time suggested he would have no problem with an easy 7f and he could be a nice each-way price here today.

Hector Loza 
Sat 29th Feb 2020
15:10, Lingfield Park

Been highly tried since Novice wins back in the Summer and been too unruly in the preliminaries in last two foreign starts to have any real chance. Not beaten far in either considering and worth a try almost in his back yard where the pre race circumstances can be more easily controlled. Might go well at a big price with rider who knows him well.

Early Morning Rain 
Sat 29th Feb 2020
15:00, Doncaster

Has won a couple of novice hurdles this season - but has been found out in Listed company when we've been in the pursuit of some black type. This looks the easiest of the Listed events we've run in, but it's still competitive on the ratings. She looks to have a good each-way chance.

CD winner and only 1 of a few in the race so that helps. Won well two runs back at Lingfield and on that run would have a big chance, but bombed out last time at Wolves and no obvious reason why. Just had an off day so hoping he can bounce back. Good draw in 4 and Danny Muscutt a plus in the saddle. Certainly capable but based on that last run hard to be 100% confident as these sprinters at this level can be a bit in-and-out. Hopefully he can get back on track. 1 1/2 stars e/w

Following a cauterisation of her soft palate Wheesht has shown decent form in her two runs since, latterly finishing second to a nice type at Fontwell. Wheesht has been in good order since that race and she’s always schooled very well, she’d jump a fence without any problems. The ground today is given as good to soft and I would be a bit concerned if it gets desperate when the rain arrives and as the ground opens up. Looking forward to a good run and should go well.

Easy winner at Southwell three runs back - flopped after that run, but returned to form with a fair third at Ffos Las last time out over 3m. Dropping back in trip here but that's okay - has won over this trip and handles the ground. Well at home, so not without and each-way chance, but still 8lbs higher than last win though so will require a bit more. 1 1/2 stars.

Cafe Milano    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Simon's horse.


Fri 28th Feb 2020
17:05, Lingfield Park

Looks like he will have to try handicapping if he can't land this. Arguably unlucky on penultimate start which was here and not suited by how the race worked out last time. Seems in good shape and no surprise if he gets back on track here.

Tallee 
Fri 28th Feb 2020

Slightly backward filly who has taken a while to come to hand. Conditions should suit and she will learn plenty for the run and no complete surprise if she runs better than her odds suggest.

Jolyon 
Fri 28th Feb 2020

16:20, Newbury

Good run last time (4th) and won't need to find much again to be in the hunt today. Big drop in class for him too and cracking claimer riding in Jack Tudor, who claims 5lbs. Big shout.

Full Back 
Fri 28th Feb 2020

Ran nicely at Fontwell last time to win on his second run under rules. Competitive race today with the Henderson and Nicholls runners respected, ours is a horse we like that has done well at home since that win - should go close.

No chance with the winner but a nice run - one to note.

Winning pointer and showed a fair level of form on hurdles debut at Uttoxeter when with Claire Dyson. First run for us and only third career outing so will have more to come. Been doing well at home but we'll find out more here today. 1 1/2 stars.

De Forgotten One 
Fri 28th Feb 2020
15:05, Doncaster

Pulled-up the last day at Wetherby so needs to come back from that but we tried him over 3m that day and just got a bit tired. The drop back in trip to 2m3f will suit him better on this ground and that last run was also his first since a wind op. Also returns to a track he's got winning form at, while the form of his win over Lord Du Mesnil back in October has since been boosted many times so if running to that sort of level again would have a decent chance. Each-way.

Looks a bit of a two-horse race with ours and the McCain runner - Goobinator. We are happy with our horse though after his nice win at Sedgefield earlier this month and that first win seems to have given him more confidence. Trip and ground are okay and feel the horse has more to come. Should go well and hopefully we can give the McCain horse a race. 2 1/2 stars.

Iconic Muddle 
Fri 28th Feb 2020
14:10, Newbury

Yet to win over hurdles (6 runs), but has been running very well of late and placed in the top 3 four times. Hopefully the ground won't be too soft, but is well at home and we feel he should have a strong chance with Niall also taking off a handy 8lbs. 2 1/2 stars.

Brigade Of Guards 
Fri 28th Feb 2020
14:00, Doncaster

Yet to win a race from 9 starts, but we've since given him a wind op since his last run in December. Over fences for the first time too and also into a handicap now so should be a lot more competitive. Schooled well and we feel the step up to 3m is another thing he's been wanting. Be delighted with a clear round to give the horse some confidence back and build from there.

Chiefofcheifs

Went very close last time out - having to wait for a run. This race looks tougher and he was a worse draw but he loves these conditions and should run his usual solid race. Each-way.

Winter Snowdrop 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
18:00, Chelmsford

Ran well for Poppy at Kempton in a better race last time out. She is able to claim 5lbs this time (unable last run because it was an apprentice race), which puts her well in at the weights. Step up in trip but we hope on breeding this will suit. We have a good draw to save ground so are hopeful that she has an e/w chance again here today.

The Honeydipper 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
17:00, Ludlow

The Honeydipper hasn't shown a great deal in two bumpers or three novice hurdles, but the step into handicap company may unlock his potential......but I'm not holding out much hope!

Sticky Situation  
Thu 27th Feb 2020
17:00, Ludlow

Pulled-up the last three times so more needed based on that - watching brief until we see more on the track.

Alltimegold 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
17:00, Ludlow

Second runner in the race for us and our better looking chance. Consistent form over fences - with 6 top three finishes from 7 runs over fences. Has also had a wind op since his last run and hopeful that will help him improve further. Course is fine - has won here before - but hoping the ground dries out - but not looking likely - a bit as best form on a quicker surface. That would increase his chance. Each-way.

Isle Of Aron 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
15:52, Musselburgh

On 4 runners but probably not a race to get too involved in with little form. Our horse is having it's racecourse debut here today and is going the right way at home. Ground will be fine and we at least get weight from all the others. Looking forward to getting going with him and should go well.

Carnwennan 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
15:40, Newcastle

Looked back on form last time out and returns to the scene of his most impressive performance to date. CD winner here at the track - Stevie Donohoe rides him beautifully and he should go close.

Cosmelli 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
15:40, Newcastle

Loves the track and travelled well to win last time out at Chelmsford. Up 4lbs for that but did it nicely and seems in a good place at the moment. Rise in grade here but a very nice prize on offer so giving it a crack. Could not be happier with the horse and feel we've got a strong each-way chance - anything else a bonus. 2 1/2 stars.

Cap St Vincent  
Thu 27th Feb 2020
15:25, Ludlow

CD winner that also won well last time out - up 5lbs here for that success but we offset that with Charlie's claim. Trip and ground are fine so another bold bid should hopefully be on the cards.

Electron Bleu    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to make it a TQ 1-2 in the race.


Thu 27th Feb 2020
14:50, Ludlow

Just the one win under rules and that came over fences. Had first run back from a wind op last time at Newcastle and has come on for that outing. Bit more needed upped in grade here but feel he should have more confidence this time after that first run back from his operation. Each-way chance.

Exodela    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Jamie.

 


Thu 27th Feb 2020
14:50, Ludlow

Exod'ela has been placed in two bumpers and two novice hurdles this season and arrives here on handicap debut off a mark of 119, which isn't a "gimme". However, we've not quite found the key to him yet, but might find handicaps
the way forward now. The application of a tongue tie could help too.

Iona Lad 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
14:42, Musselburgh

Just the four runners, but we should have a leading chance if running to the level from last time. Was a fine second at Newton Abbot and should be more to come with just 4 career runs. Is, however, returning from a break (229 days) so might just need this, but been doing well at home and doesn't look that good a race so might get away with it. Overcourt looks the one to beat.

Coole Well 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
14:15, Ludlow

Coole Well is a tricky character!  He has finished 2nd in five of his last seven starts, and is hard to place really.  We're stepping him up in trip today to experiment.  This looks a tight race, and if the step up in trip works then he could have a chance.....but will need to jump better as well!

Black Kalarosa 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
13:40, Ludlow

Ran a blinder last time, and if she can build on that could well be in the shake up. Slightly concerned that the race might come up a bit quick for her, but has the makings of a nice filly. Will likely come into her own properly once she has a mark.

Numero Uno    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to take third.


Thu 27th Feb 2020
13:30, Musselburgh

Only average form to day, but first run over hurdles today in a handicap and that will help. Conditions are fine and is well after a few months out. Better expected today - each-way chance.

Judex Lefou 
Thu 27th Feb 2020
13:00, Musselburgh

Yet to win from 11 runs, but placed many times. Ran well on debut for us when third at Catterick - formerly with the Thomas Mullins yard in Ireland. Drop back in trip will help as got a bit tired last time over 2m3f. Looks a very poor race and hoping that will give us a much better chance today - should go close.

Comeonfeeltheforce 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Was given a lot to do last time here over 1m3f and they went no pace in the race which didn't suit. Dropping back to 7f here - we'll try and sit handy and ride a bit different this time. Draw okay in 7 and providing they go a good gallop then that will suit us coming off the pace. Good jockey in Danny Muscutt riding and a proven CD winner here. Each-way 1 1/2 stars.

Lauberhorn Rocket 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

Last seen running over the sticks but is back on the AW here and at a track his sole career win came at. Is 5lbs higher than that success but we know he likes the surface here. Has been freshened up with a few months off and seems to be a horse that likes to run off a break. Two runs at the track (1st and 3rd) so based on that then must have a reasonable e/w shout.

Pioneering 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

I think PIONEERING will stay out the trip, he has won over 1mile 1f and 1m 2f on grass, so you would think that this trip on the all weather would be fine. Not convinced as his ability on the all weather as yet so I would say best-watched, so if PIONEERING puts in a reasonable performance I will be delighted.

Gossiping 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

GOSSIPING is not rated as highly on the all weather as on turf but still appears to be paying the price for his achievements last year when he won some decent races. Has yet to be placed after a significant number of runs recently but as GOSSIPING begins to drop in the handicap he should again find his level. Think he would struggle to beat his stable companion tonight but I hope to see GOSSIPING finish off his race into a decent place.

Agent of Fortune 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

AGENT OF FORTUNE has a remarkable attitude and appears to thrive on her racing. Her 7 wins since December have been well documented and she ran a great race on Saturday to finish third when the race did not quite go to plan. Every chance today running under a penalty so I hope AGENT OF FORTUNE can make it win number 8 tonight.

Beat The Judge 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
18:30, Kempton Park

All weather debut for BEAT THE JUDGE, so maybe I should say best-watched. Decent hurdler wanting decent ground which we are not getting at present so although this race will help his fitness when he returns to hurdles I would like to think that there is a possibility that BEAT THE JUDGE could run well here today. Certainly had the most experience, so that might count for something.

High Up In The Air 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
16:50, Wincanton

HIGH UP IN THE AIR won well at Plumpton in January scoring by a decent margin. Heavy going over a longer trip at Lingfield next time out rather proved his undoing and got collared at Huntingdon when looking like a winning move but fading on the run in. Possible three fairly quick races had taken their toll, so HIGH UP IN THE AIR has had time to freshen up for this race today and I hope to see him go close.

Dr Oakley 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
16:50, Wincanton

Unseated James early on last time out at Huntingdon - is none-the-worse for that, but has had a month off in the meantime. Run prior to that unseat was encouraging (3rd) and we are 2lbs lower here. Has an very low weight in this higher grade and that will help in the ground. Not without place claims with a bit more luck today.

Tippingituptonancy 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
16:40, Musselburgh

Has ability but hasn't quite shown that on the track yet. But first time into a handicap here today will help and mark of 98 looks a reasonable starting point, especially with Charlie taking off 5lbs. Trip and ground are fine so looking forward to an improved run.

Minella Beat 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
15:50, Wincanton

Is a nice horse. This former Irish Point winner has some useful bumper form and was a good second on hurdling debut. However, he bled that day and after a wind operation he has been away for a racecourse gallop and we couldn't be happier with him coming into this race. The favourite could be hard to beat but as the saying goes 'never be afraid of one horse'!

Jembug Drummer 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
15:40, Musselburgh

Bit to answer at the moment - won well three runs back, but has flopped since. Last run came off a wind op so hoping with that run under his belt that might give him more confidence second time back. Tongue-tie is on today to try and help and we are dropped 3lbs too. Capable on his best form, but we'd like to see it back on the track after last time.  

Robero 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
15:35, Southwell

In great heart at the moment - finishing in the top two in 4 of his last 5 races. Up another 2lbs in the ratings here for his recent second here over 6f, but is just as effective over this 7f trip. Better race here today with a nice pot up for grabs but we get in with just 8-7 as a result, plus George takes off 7lbs again. More needed but in the form of his life and should not be far away again. Each-way.

Animal    WINNER! winner

Lovely introduction.


Wed 26th Feb 2020
15:26, Market Rasen

Big long striding horse. Has been working nicely at home. Hard to tell just how good the others are or might be with no form to go on, but some strong pedigrees. So just hopeful of a nice intro today and fingers crossed he can reach the frame - he shouldn't be too green either.

Bobmahley 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
15:10, Musselburgh

Lightly-raced with only 4 career runs. Ran well last time too when 5th of 17 at Taunton (hurdles) and feel he's improved at home since. First time over fences today - but schooling well at home. 3lbs better off at the ratings this time being a pound lower and the jockey's claim and after looking a tad one-paced last time out over 2m3f we feel the step up to 3m here is worth a crack and of my runners today we feel he's one of those with a better chance.

Right Hand Of God 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
14:48, Wincanton

I hope to see RIGHT HAND OF GOD go close today. Previous runs show that he has decent each-way claims today and he is working well enough at home for me to think that he could be close to winning as he has steadily improved over the winter. Been a difficult few months placing National Hunt horses with extreme weather conditions proving challenging but RIGHT HAND OF GOD should be fine on this ground.

Motdepas 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
14:48, Wincanton

Nice type of horse, but probably best-watched until he qualifies for handicaps. I think the ground today will be quite tiring for MOTDEPAS as it will for all the runners and although I hope to see a decent run today he will come on for the experience.

Dadsintrouble    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Tim's horse.


Wed 26th Feb 2020
14:40, Musselburgh

Nice horse on his day - had his issues in recent seasons but returned from his latest break with an encouraging effort at Warwick (4th of 13). Same mark here but we've a 5lb claimer on this time in Charlie Price to help with his 12-0 burden. Trip and ground are fine and the horse seems well - if building on that last run then looks a nice e/w option over the likely favourite - First Account - and looks one of my better chances on the day.

Mukha Magic    WINNER! winner

Well-judged rided to win with a bit to spare.


Wed 26th Feb 2020
14:35, Southwell

Ran better than we expected last time off a break when third at Chelmsford a few weeks ago. Has come out of that race well so off the same mark and with George riding (claims 7lbs) again then should not be far away. First run on the surface though so a bit of an unknown on that score but we feel it will suit and the eye-shields are on to help with the kickback. Brooklyn Boy might be hard to topple but feel we've got e/w claims if handling the fibresand.

Champagne Mondays 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
14:05, Southwell

Course winner and dropped to a lowly mark, but loads more needed than what he's showing of late so just be happy with a step back in the right direction.

Some Finish 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
13:56, Market Rasen

Is so hard to gauge - it's either a 1st or a Pulled-up with this horse, and you don't know what you are getting till the day! Seems well at home but although he has won 5 chases is certainly not one to rely on based on the above. Tabitha takes off a handy 5lbs.

Barrowlands 
Wed 26th Feb 2020
12:55, Market Rasen

Won his maiden hurdle well under a good ride but disappointed on his handicap debut when stepped up in trip. He's had a minor wind op since and this former Irish Pointer jumps fences well and should make up into a better chaser than hurdler. His mark looks on the high side for what he has achieved so far though so Page taking off 3lbs will help. He's not without a chance in an open race.

Rebecke 
Tue 25th Feb 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

Islay Mist 
Tue 25th Feb 2020
17:00, Lingfield Park

Nice draw in 6 will help. Had a few excuses the last day as they went a bit too quick for her. Has bits and pieces of form that would see her involved and seems well after a small break. Apprentice race so not one to go mad in, but we've an experienced jockey in Gavin Ashton riding (175 rides, 13 winners) and he takes off a handy 5lbs. 1 1/2 stars e/w

Confounding 
Tue 25th Feb 2020
16:30, Lingfield Park

Made a nice debut (4th, Lingfield) over a furlong shorter a few weeks ago and she seems to have improved for that run. She has a lovely draw today (1) and should run another nice race. Each-way.

Agamemmon    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Tue 25th Feb 2020
16:15, Catterick

Ask Paddy, who has won it's last three will be an obvious danger, but hopefully with that horse going up another 8lbs it's winning run might come to an end! We come here with a chance though after winning two runs back at Sedgefield and then not disgracing off 8lbs higher last time (3rd) at Donny on ground that wouldn't have suited the horse as well. Brian Hughes helps in the saddle and has ridden the horse in the last three times, so is starting to get to know him well. Softer ground than last time will be a plus and seems well after a small month break. Feel we've got a solid e/w chance.

Thechildren'strust 
Tue 25th Feb 2020
15:00, Lingfield Park

First time over mile and a quarter on the all weather. Hopefully this will bring out a bit of improvement, but the John Gosden horse - Maximum Effect - looks the one to beat, so each-way call.

Talkingpicturestv    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for Henry


Tue 25th Feb 2020
14:45, Catterick

Never went a yard the last day at Uttoxeter - ran flat, which was frustrating as he ran really well the time before (2nd). Nothing came to light so if that effort can be forgiven then an each-way chance in what doesn't look the best of races. Handles the ground and the trip is fine - has also been freshened up with a few months off and seems well for it. Lady Amateur riders' race but we've got a decent pilot on in Millie Wonnacott, who has already had 50 rides (8 wins) and claims a handy 5lbs too. Each-way chance.

Cape Greco    WINNER! winner

No chance with the easy winner - but a nice e/w effort.


Mon 24th Feb 2020
16:45, Southwell

First run for the yard - came from the Jo Hughes yard. Has won twice from 14 starts so does know how to get his head in front, but is returning from 4 months off. Sporting the eyeshields today to help with the kickback as first run here too. Will learn more after today and with both career wins coming off a lower mark then might have something to answer off this mark anyway - we'll see, but very a learning race for us here and might just need this with the break. George helps by taking 7lbs off. Equidae looks the likely winner. 1 1/2 stars.

Limerick Lord    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third at 14/1


Mon 24th Feb 2020
16:45, Southwell

Needs a small field and a high draw - unfortunately did not get that on his last run so can be forgiven for that effort. He is racing here off a featherweight but needs things to go right for him and if they do, he would have an each-way chance at a big price.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Solid effort from Gay's horse.


Mon 24th Feb 2020
14:35, Southwell

Should have a decent chance if reproducing his close second here earlier this month. Only a pound higher here and that was only his fourth career run so will have more to offer. Step up to 6f should be fine and with that last run coming off a break has improved at home for it. The horses are still running well so hopeful of a nice run today. Luke also rides for the first time. Big Impact and Anna Maria look the obvious dangers.

The Lion Man 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
16:30, Wolverhampton

Very similar call to our other runner today. Likes a better surface so not really been able to run recently with the ground soft in most places. Ceris rides this one too and can claim 10lbs so will gain more experience race riding here today too. Will improve for the run.

Ventura Dragon 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
16:20, Fontwell Park

After the news that Leighton will be retiring today, this will be his final ride for us. Everyone knows how much I appreciate what Leighton has done for the yard over the years, so we all thank him and wish him all the best for the future - we are sure we'll still be seeing a lot of him!

Anyway - Ventura didn’t deserve to end up on the floor last time out at Leicester, he jumped the hurdle well enough and just plugged in the heavy ground. He was traveling well enough at the time, but it was too far from home to know where he’d have finished. Ventura took a while to come to himself over hurdles and even though he was placed a couple of times it wasn’t until his Hereford run in November that he finally looked as if he’d turned a corner, unfortunately next time out at Wetherby he picked up a bang to his joint which took a while to heal. Ventura is a kind horse to deal with and good to ride, I would dearly love him to win this for Lash (Leighton), but it is a more competitive race than last time out. Trip and ground are fine so should still go well and fingers crossed for a nice run.

Fort Denison 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
16:20, Fontwell Park

Glimpses of form so far and ran okay for much of the race last time at Donny. Dropped a pound for that and Alan Johns takes over in the plate. Had a nice break (2 months) and we feel the step up in trip to 2m5 1/2f here will help. Won't mind the softer ground here too as found conditions a bit too quick last time. Small each-way chance. 1 1/2 stars.

Invicta Lake 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
16:20, Fontwell Park

Was probably a bit keen at Plumpton last time and just didn't quite get home. Drop in trip should help and has a nice weight today - so could run on into a place.

Black Gerry 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
15:50, Fontwell Park

A horse we like a fair bit and backed up that confidence with a win at Lingfield on his second run over hurdles. Handles the ground and has improved at home since, so we certainly feel there is much more to come from him. Got the Murphy horse to beat, who fell in the Lanzarote Hurdle last time out when looking to hold every chance. However, I'm not convinced that was the greatest renewal of that race ever run and had the Murphy horse not fallen late on, I'm still not 100% he'd have won anyway. Regardless, he's obviously our biggest danger but like to think we can give him a very good race!

Quiana 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
15:50, Fontwell Park

Second runner in the race for us - fair flat performer over in France but feel he'll need more time over the sticks and likely to be much better once handicapped. Of our two in the race, clearly the second string.

Bally Lagan 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
15:30, Wolverhampton

Doesn't really do soft ground so not had many chances during the last 3-4 months! So, though this was a good chance to get him to stretch his legs. Jockey takes off 10lbs, so that will help but after 5 months off would be a massive shock if he's troubling the judge.

Strike The Flint 
Sun 23rd Feb 2020
14:30, Wolverhampton

Needs a sound surface and has ability. Has a good cruising speed and handy type. Not over big so struggled a bit with a penalty, but feel we've got an each-way chance here today.

Castelo 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

Last chance saloon and needs to show more at this low level. Probably didn't face the blinkers last time and her homework is good, but she has disappointed on the track to date.

Moondance 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
17:30, Chelmsford

MOONDANCE has had a break but yet to follow up after her sole win at Kempton last November. Hopefully MOONDANCE can correct that this evening but I would have to be cautious. Working well at home though so I hope I have found the right race for her. Each-way.

Do Your Job 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
17:05, Newcastle

Pirate King    WINNER! winner

Easy win for Charlie's improver.


Sat 22nd Feb 2020
16:25, Lingfield Park

Has won his last two over course and distance but today he takes on two other horses chasing three-timers. He comes out well at the weights with Battle Of Marathon - having already beaten him his year - so based on that must have a good chance.

Darebin 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
16:10, Kempton Park

DAREBIN is an honest horse but I think the going conditions could just work against him today over further.  Nevertheless, you will see him putting his best hoof forward to tough it out but realistically place claims I think - but with his good attitude you can never quite rule him out.

Thor De Cerisy 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
15:55, Newcastle

Pop The Confetti 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
14:40, Lingfield Park

First run today and I would think best-watched. A modest race I know, but I think BOMBSHELL, that is coming over from the Joseph O'Brien yard, clearly sets the standard 

Scallywagtail 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
14:40, Lingfield Park

Basement mark and has not shown much in his career. Yes, a weak race, but I know that to win this SCALLYWAGTAIL will have to have shown improvement.

The Crazed Moon 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
14:10, Newcastle

Chitra 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
14:05, Lingfield Park

Has a bit to find tackling Listed company, but loves the track - is 2-from-2 over this course and distance. If she could sneak a place that would be a great return for her long term future as a broodmare.

Vorashann 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
13:50, Kempton Park

I was pleased with the run of VORASHANN at Sandown a few weeks ago on his English debut (4th of 6). Conditions were gruelling and it was a smart race. Well beaten I know, but he came out of the race well and on potentially better ground today I hope to see VORASHANN finish closer today, but goes without saying the Nicholls and Mullins runners set the standard.

Agent of Fortune    WINNER! winner

Ran on well to take third.


Sat 22nd Feb 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

Stepped up in trip today which will be interesting (1m2f, from 1m), so we'll see how she gets on over it. Unfortunately, AGENT OF FORTUNE had to miss an earlier engagement this week due to a power cut at the races. She came out of her race last Monday fresh and well so shouldering a penalty she will take her chance today. Won't be easy I know, with the trip a question mark too, but AGENT OF FORTUNE is thriving at present and I have to give her solid each-way claims

Stormingin 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us. STORMINGIN yet to win on the all weather but ran a decent race when he dead heated for third here at Lingfield a few weeks ago. Difficult with two in the race but STORMINGIN is fresh and well and should have decent place claims

Twenty Twenty 
Sat 22nd Feb 2020
12:40, Kempton Park

Could be outclassed today off bottom weight but with testing conditions generally at present I want to run TWENTY TWENTY with not too much weight on his back. Tries hard hence a sequence of places. Be good if TWENTY TWENTY could get his head back in front today, but realistically could be settling for place claims again but with a further 7lbs taken off his chance can only improve.

Let Me Entertain U 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
17:20, Exeter

First run on the track - been doing well at home and won't mind the ground. But not really betting races with so many newcomers in the field, but looking forward to the nice run and getting going with him. Tom rides and hopeful of a nice introduction. 1 1/2 stars.

Noble Account    WINNER! winner

Soild run - 12/1 into 9/2 - went down at short-head and a nose.


Fri 21st Feb 2020
17:15, Wolverhampton

Is a horse we have always liked - he has loads of ability but has yet to show it. He has plenty in his favour also here today being upped in trip. Cheekpieces and a good draw (2), plus first time in this grade. Charlie Bennett knows him well. We will be disappointed if he is not thereabouts in this race. Looks a nice e/w price.

Nada To Prada    WINNER! winner

Top winner for Scu.


Fri 21st Feb 2020
17:10, Warwick

Winning Pointer that is having rules debut here today. Fit and well, plus won't mind the ground so looking forward to a solid introduction and hopeful she won't be far away.

Mont Kiara 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
16:30, Lingfield Park

Looked like he was coming back to form a few runs ago but lost his way and not had races run to suit. Good chance here of returning to form if things fall right for him and should go well at a big price.

Weststreet 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
16:20, Exeter

Weststreet loves heavy ground and extreme distances, he ran ok last time at Plumpton but as he’s a hold up horse the track didn’t exactly play to his strengths, this course will suit him a lot more. Weststreet looked good in the spring at Hexham and Perth when winning nicely, he needed his first outing this term at Carlisle and was then hampered at Kelso when pulling up on his next start. Harrison rides and claims a handy 5lbs - really just be delighted with a step back in the right direction here. Small e/w 1 1/2 stars.

Roundabout Magic

Loves it here and doesn't know how to run a bad race. 6f stretches him but he can cope if they go fast enough in front for him to settle and hard to totally discount.

Beat The Breeze 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
14:55, Lingfield Park

Unlucky to still be a maiden and last run probably best ignored. Sure to find his races and should be involved in this if anything like back to his best.

Dr Des 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
14:15, Exeter

Won well two runs back at Uttoxeter but failed to follow-up when pulled-up last time at Haydock - both over hurdles. On a plus, has dropped another 5lbs in the ratings now back over fences and starting to look well-handicapped. Trip and ground will be fine and seems after a small break. Still a bit to prove over fences though (0-from-6) so just be delighted with a run similar to that of two starts ago. Small e/w chance if his jumping holds out. 1 1/2 stars.

Subliminal 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
13:50, Lingfield Park

Not sure to stay 12f but if he does then it is most likely at this track. Seems in great form still and worth a try whilst he is in this form.

Brummie Boys 
Fri 21st Feb 2020
13:25, Warwick

This is the final EBF qualifier and as with Sevarano at Doncaster, Brummie needs to finish in the first four to be eligible to be entered in the final on March 7th. Brummie has run well in all of his races to date but he is still on the weak side, he’s not the fastest but so far he’s looked a thorough galloper who will want this ground when he’s strong enough. I want to get some experience into him before he goes off for a good summer holiday and if he picks up a decent race in the meantime all well and good, hence trying to get him qualified for the final of this series. Should go well with the Whittington and Tizzard runners looking the obvious dangers.

Lord Halifax 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

Should really have won last time out at Lingfield but got caught in a pocket and didn't get out in time. Before that he had been very impressive at Kempton. If he returns in that sort of form he should be hard to beat.

Cosmelli    WINNER! winner

Travelled well - made amends for last week's narrow defeat.


Thu 20th Feb 2020
19:00, Chelmsford

Still not totally sure how he lost last week - looked to have the race in the bag until getting chinned on the line - that's racing! Slight drop in trip here will help and we get in here off the same mark. First run on the AW here at Chelmsford but no reason why it shouldn't suit and this time we help with George taking off an handy 7lbs. AW win record is a bit poor (2 from 20), but with 7 top 3 finishes is often not far away! Looks a tight race despite only 7 runners, with several with chances - but we feel we are one of those. Lord Halifax and the only CD winner in the field Lady Bergamot have to be feared.

Golden Force    WINNER! winner

Much better run from Charlie's horse.


Thu 20th Feb 2020
18:00, Chelmsford

Has been incredibly tough to train at home and we are still working him out at the races. Drop to 6f will certainly help as he has tons of natural speed and we might make a bit more use of that here today. Learning curve still, but not without an each-way chance if the drop in trip works.

Corri Lindo 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
17:03, Sedgefield

Fourth last time out - but only beaten 1 1/2 lengths. 2lb rise in the ranks here but we feel a repeat of that last run should see him go well. Is, however, yet to win a race under rules (17 runs) so that tells a story, but has gone close many times and deserves to get a win soon. Has also won a Point on heavy ground. Each-way.

Bolt N Brown 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
16:50, Southwell

Top winner over the stick for us last time out but back on the level here. Likes the track - despite not winning here as yet - and stays further than this 1m4f trip. Seems well after that last race and the confidence of that first career win last time can hopefully see him kick on now. Should go well and a few early non-runners in the race - one of the fancied ones - obviously helps.

Jimmyjames 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
16:33, Sedgefield

Unseated his jockey early on last time out at Ffos Las - None the worse for that and same mark here today. Has been schooled well since and feel that if his jumping holds up, then off this light weight should have a decent each-way chance.

Brambledown 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
16:11, Huntingdon

A horse which is not short of ability - ran well behind a useful Henderson horse last time in a nice race at Sandown. Been working well at home since and must have a reasonable chance today in what looks an open race. Should be knocking at the door. Each-way.

Samovar 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:50, Southwell

Consistent sprinter at this sort of level - ran another cracker earlier this week here when second in a Class 2 contest. Stayed on well that day over 5f so the extra furlong here is fine. Proven CD winner at the track, while this slight ease in grade will help. Trappy race (5 runners) and taking on some in-form rivals but could be the value in the race. Each-way.

Espion De Saflo 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:41, Huntingdon

Disappointing so far this season, so a bit to prove. Hopefully he can been seen in a better light today with a step up in distance.  

Moveonup 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:20, Southwell

Probably back in the right grade after running an excellent third here in a Class 2 a few days ago - stayed on really well over the 5f that day after racing up with the pace, plus was 7lbs out of the handicap that day too! Should find this easier and seems to be taking his racing well. George continues in the saddle and claims 7lbs so another bold bid on the cards from the front. Probably our best chance on the day.

Legends Ryde 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:11, Huntingdon

Was a very good bumper mare but disappointed on hurdling debut when only fourth over 2m. She has had her wind tinkered with since and this step up in trip should suit. She should go close providing that last run hasn't dented her confidence.

Truckers Angel 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:11, Huntingdon

First run for the stable. Goes nicely at home and a fromer winning Pointer. However, probably best-watched on this occasion.

Madame Vogue 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:11, Huntingdon

Works well but has been off a long time and just looking for a nice run back today and a bit of hurdling experience. May be seen to better effect on a sounder surface in due course.

Detatched 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
15:03, Sedgefield

Happy with his run last time out at Warwick. Has come out of that race well and improved for it after a few months out. Up just 2lbs here but after getting a bit outpaced last time we feel the step up from 2m to 2m5f here will benefit him, being a winning Pointer over 3m in the past too. The two recent winners in the field to beat, but with little depth to the race we could be the value. Jeremiah McGrath rides.

Sleeper Queen 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
14:50, Southwell

Fifth on debut - down the field - so more needed here. The drop back from 1m to 7f will help though but likely to still need time and experience.

Robsdelight 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
14:20, Southwell

Had an off day last time out at Southwell - Was a winner the time before over 6f here and is only a pound higher. Luke Morris takes over in the saddle and the step up to 7f is fine - has won over this trip. Acts on the surface too and nice draw in 3. Does need to put that last run behind him but is capable of bouncing back with the horses running well. Small Each-way, but we feel does need more off this rating. 1 1/2 stars.

Mickey Buckman 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
14:11, Huntingdon

Unlucky last time when falling on bad ground. Hopefully that has not knocked his confidence. Ran well the time before here so we know the track suits. Has schooled well since so hopefully he has every chance against the Henderson favourite.

Call Off The Dogs 
Thu 20th Feb 2020
13:41, Huntingdon

Showed promise last time, when third at Plumpton. Hopefully can build on that today on slightly better ground which may give him an e/w chance, with the Fry horse looking the obvious one we've all got to beat. 

Agent Of Fortune 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
20:30, Kempton Park

She keeps suprising us and has now won 7 times (from last 9) since coming to us. Won well again on Monday here and only 5lbs higher. Rhys booked to ride though and he takes off 7lbs so actually 2lbs better off than last time too. Has come out of her race very well and no reason why she can't win again.

Mythical Madness 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Not found his form for us since recovering from injury. Never raced here and back to a mile but conditions might suit him and gradually getting better handicapped.

That's A Shame 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Probably best-watched on this occasion. Moderate last time and probably better when handicapped.

Tight Call 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
17:10, Ludlow

Did well at the end of 2018 but has struggled a bit since. Second run back after a wind op so that last run would hopefully have got some confidence back into him. This will also be the softest ground he's run on so not totally sure it will suit with better runs coming on quicker ground. But seems well in himself and hopeful of a better showing than last time. Each-way chance if handling the conditions.

Avantgardist 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
17:10, Ludlow

Pulled up last time but the heavy ground took it's toll of a lot of the runners that day at Chepstow. Only a pound lower here and just the one career win from 20 starts and that came off a 6lb lower rating so a bit to prove. Really just be happy with an improved run and build from there.

Hickeys Rock 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
16:40, Ludlow

Former Mouse Morris runner over in Ireland that is having his debut for us. Often hard to translate the Irish form to over here but has settled in well. Yet to win a race from 17 runs though so just be happy with the learning kind of race here that will teach us plenty. Might also be better on a slightly faster surface in time.

All Is Good 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
16:40, Ludlow

Happy with his return run at Taunton 2 weeks again (5th of 12). That came off a 4 month break so has come on for the run. Also 5lbs lower here and the drop back to 2m is fine. Handles soft ground too so feel we ng off 5lbs th an each-way claim with Tabby taking off 5lbs too.

Hoping the ground will not be excessively heavy, he has a decalartion tomorrow in case the heavens open this afternoon

Amarillo Star    WINNER! winner

Ran on really well.


Wed 19th Feb 2020
15:40, Newcastle

Really tough ask for Amarillo Star today as he has a lot to find with most of the opposition at the weights. Having said that, he has plenty in his favour and is race fit. He will also love the track and has a great attitude. He will need to bring his A-game though in a race like this.

Bayaanaat 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
15:23, Doncaster

Bayaanaat was bred by Hamdan Al Maktoum in whose colours he ran in his first outing on the flat for Dermot Weld, he was then sold to Peter Hiatt where he had a further three races not showing a lot. Peter and his team had already done a bit of schooling with him before he arrived and he’s been a natural jumper from day one. It’s difficult to know how Bayaanaat will run because his flat form is very uninspiring but he is honest and he’s done nothing but improve in his work since arriving.

 

 

Hijran 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
15:00, Ludlow

4-time hurdles winner but after a good time of it at the end of 2018 and early 2019 lost his way. Has had two wind ops since and the most recent coming last month. Returns on lat winning mark and we are also putting up Nathan Brennan, who claims 10lbs. We are also hoping the return to Ludlow will help as a past CD winner and will be fine in the softer ground. Small e/w chance off this mark, but with recent issues will be delighted with an improved run and build form there.

Jefferson Davis 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
14:50, Doncaster

Not seen since last May, having won that month at Ludlow, but failed to follow-up later that month at Warwick (5th). Been freshened up but we are returning 6lbs higher than last win. Recent runs been on better ground but has won on soft when trained in Ireland. More needed in this step up in grade too, but nice to get him back on the track. Will improve for this but certainly feel he's got more races in him around this level. 

Sevarano 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
14:18, Doncaster

This is an EBF qualifier and horses that finish in the first four will be eligible to enter the final at Sandown on March 7th. The weather has played havoc with these qualifying races and this is the penultimate chance to qualify, these wouldn’t be the exact conditions I would like for Sevarano and he is giving away a lot of weight but I’m hoping he’s good enough to get into the four. Sevarano ran a bit flat last time out at Newbury, nothing came to light but he was quiet for a while afterwards so I don’t think it was his true running. It’s a cliche but he is a chaser in the making, he jumps his hurdles like fences already and he’s an out and out galloper, so I don’t think we will see the best of him until he takes his place in that sphere.

Black Kalarosa 
Wed 19th Feb 2020
13:55, Ludlow

effectively first run over hurdles - needs to complete om the way to getting a mark.

Sociologist    WINNER! winner

Nice run from Scott's horse.


Tue 18th Feb 2020
20:00, Southwell

Does only have 1 win from 22 runs so that tells it's own story but is often placed (8 top three finishes). The step back up to 1m6f here should help and also the return of Barry McHugh in the saddle. Ran well over this trip two runs back for Barry McHugh off this mark so a repeat of that effort should see him in the mix, but - as I say - does often find a few too good in his races.

War Empress    WINNER! winner

Better from Julia's horse.


Tue 18th Feb 2020
20:00, Southwell

Has run a couple of good races at Kempton over 2m and the form of those races has worked out well - but it remains to be seen whether she handles this surface as she is a slow starter, hence we have fitted eyeshields. Just hopeful of a good run.

Limerick Lord 
Tue 18th Feb 2020
19:30, Southwell

Does save his best for Southwell and is now as low in the handicap as he has ever been. Has found is hard to win lately and we would have preferred a high draw, but the blinkers seem to have sparked some life into him - we hope he has an each-way chance.

Moveonup 
Tue 18th Feb 2020
19:00, Southwell

Been a much better horse since dropping back to 5f - as a result though has risen up the handicap and is now 7lbs higher than last time and in this better race we are racing 7lbs out of the handicap. Light weight though being that we are into a Class 2 here, but that also means a big hike up in class and racing against better horses. George continues in the saddle though to claim 7lbs and that will help. Likes to blaze out and acts well on the surface - the horse are going well, so let's see how long he can stay in front for. Each-way.

Samovar    WINNER! winner

Battled on well to take second.


Tue 18th Feb 2020
19:00, Southwell

Generally a consistent sort on this surface - CD winner here too and the return to 5f here will help after not quite seeing out 6f last time. Still 3lbs higher than last win though so would need a career-best to win off this rating, but has should finish a lot closer than last time. Small e/w chance in a very open race despite having only 7 runners. 1 1/2 stars.

Delcia 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
20:30, Kempton Park

Tries a new trip here and should be better suited to this. Goes well enough and might get involved at a big price at this level.

Agent of Fortune    WINNER! winner

Another top win for Gary's fast-improving 5 year-old.


Mon 17th Feb 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Probably our best chance of the day, if able to step up in class. Won 3 of her last 4, including last time at Lingfield - up another 7lbs here so another step forward needed. A big ask, but never fails to amaze and should be finishing off her race well in the normal fashion. 2 1/2 stars.

Savitar 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
20:00, Kempton Park

Got knocked about all over the place at Lingfield last time out, so can ignore that run. Drop back to 1m here (from 1m2f) and return to Kempton a plus as has run well here in the past. Had a break since (2 months) and seems well for it, but might just improve for this and be better for the run.

Jumping Cats 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

First run for the stable and still learing about the horse - so best-watched on this occasion.

Rydan 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
19:30, Kempton Park

Disappointing the last couple of runs. CD winner here and now down in slightly lower grade which hopefully will give him a decent chance with the first-time blinkers also on today. Hot favourite sets the standard and the likely winner, but feel we can run better than odds suggest. 

Olivers Pursuit 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
19:00, Kempton Park

Nice run last time out here when a close second. Up 2lbs for that but has certainly improved for that after returning from just over 4 months off. Cheekpieces on for the first time here and they should help. Another that should run well and have a solid each-way chance.

Recuerdame 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Lost his confidence but on a career low and has run well here in the past. First time hood might help him recover his form and well handicapped if it does.

Treble Clef 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Ran well here two runs back over 6f. Failed to back that up at Wolves next time over 7f but ever chance the track just didn't suit (was first run there). Also only had 4 career runs so should have more to come and doesn't look the best of races. First two in the betting are feared but still hoping for a top three finish. My better chance on the day. Each-way. 1 1/2 stars

Ubla    WINNER! winner

Nice winner for the in-form Gay Kelleway yard.


Mon 17th Feb 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Had a month off since last run but returns on a 2lb lower mark and is now only 3lbs higher than last win. Nice draw in 3 too and acts well at the track - recent runs here read well, 2-4-5-1-2. Luke knows the horse well and rides too - feel we've got an e/w chance.

Wilson 
Mon 17th Feb 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Just blows his chances with a slow start each time. He ran well last run and was running on well at the finish. First time he has got down to run in this class though - plus the long straight should help here. We are also trying blinkers for the first time to try and sharpen him up. Each-way chance if he doesn't lose ground at the start.

Capricorn Prince    WINNER! winner

Travelled well - well-backed nice winner for the Moore team.


Mon 17th Feb 2020
13:30, Lingfield Park

Capricorn Prince - Been running well recently over slightly longer distances. Hopefully the drop back in disctance may help and give him a decent chance.

Sparkalot 
Sun 16th Feb 2020
16:30, Kempton Park

Run well enough since return from injury and seems to have retained his ability. His best form is here over track and trip, well drawn and top rider knows him well. Hard to discount if things go right for him.

Travelled well last time but ran out of petrol so I have decided to drop back in trip. He looks like a sprinter and on pedigree it could work. His work at home has been good. Looks a nice e/w price.

Alamora    WINNER! winner

Place money landed - went down just 3/4 and 1/2 a length.


Sat 15th Feb 2020

Made a lovely debut at Kempton (4th) and has come on for the run. We like her a lot and feel she should go close here today.

Prince Percy 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
16:20, Lingfield Park

I think the step up in trip is needed for PRINCE PERCY and on his second run in a handicap with first time pieces to aid his concentration I think he could go close today.

Los Alamos 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
16:10, Ascot

Only second run for the yard - came to us from the Joseph O'Brien yard. Well back on first run for us but can be expected to have come on for that. 4lbs lower here, but still learning about the horse though and so just be delighted with an improved run.

Bit below best so far this Winter but still capable and remains in good shape. Should be thereabouts if the race goes right for him and top rider booked.

Traffic Fluide 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
15:35, Ascot

TRAFFIC FLUIDE has been off the track a while but he is in a great place at home and I need to get a run into him. Lightly raced gelding with a fragile history but I have been pleased with his progress at home as the plan is to hopefully get to Aintree (National) which if TRAFFIC FLUIDE completes today will help secure his place.

Le Milos 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
15:00, Ascot

Very competitive race with almost all the runners looking to have squeaks based on form at some points in their careers! Milos ran a solid race back last time behind a fair sort (Annsam) and has come out of that well. Trip the same and fine on soft ground. But up in grade here so a lot more needed, but on a plus we've a much lower racing weight as a result - just 10st 7lbs - so that will help in the conditions.

Distingo 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
15:00, Ascot

DISTINGO has not quite seen out his races in recent runs but with the visor back on and two runs behind him this season I hope to see a better effort today. Competitive race and probably best-watched but I hope to see DISTINGO finish his race off better today.

Avorisk Et Perils

The Warrior    WINNER! winner

Top call from Lee.


Sat 15th Feb 2020
13:25, Lingfield Park

The Warrior - As you may know, he's a bit of a monkey so a had horse to predict. Certainly has the ability to win a race like this if on a going day though. Drawn well in 1 and top jockey riding helps. Likes to be held up, covered up and coming from off the pace. Small each-way chance. If pushed probably the better of my two in the race, but being a quirky sort then hard to catch right. Each-way - 1 1/2 stars.

Fuwairt 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
13:25, Lingfield Park

Had a few excuses of late with poor draws and doesn't really like Chelmsford. One of two in the race and probably our second pick, but on a plus is the more genuine of the two. Paddy helps by taking off 3lbs and draw okay (8). Tongue-tie is also on today and the horse has gone well wearing this in the past too. Small e/w - 1 1/2 stars.

Marmalade Day 
Sat 15th Feb 2020
13:25, Lingfield Park

Second runner in the race for us. MARMALADE DAY was late coming to the track making her appearance as recently as last October. She put in some decent efforts but her handicap debut was not good. Has been dropped a bit so I think best-watched today but I would expect she may claim a place at best. 1 1/2 stars.

Sea Shack 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
20:15, Southwell

Has had excuses the last two runs - he has still been running consistently but finds it hard to win. Is well-handicapped and Dylan Hogan takes off a useful 3lbs. Each-way chance.

Oud Metha Bridge 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
19:45, Southwell

Seems to have taken well to this surface with the eyeshields fitted - unlucky last run when taken across the track by the winner. He seems in good form and Grace McEntee takes off a handy 7lbs again. Each-way chance again.

Croeso Cymraeg 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
19:15, Southwell

Entitled to come on for the last run and the drop in trip here may suit round here on this deeper surface. Favourite will be hard to beat though so we'll probably be fighting it out for second.

Samovar 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
18:45, Southwell

Always run his race. CD winner and been freshened up with 3 weeks off. Should make a bold bid - however, might just be in the handicapper's grip at the moment with last win coming 7 runs ago and off a 3lb lower mark. Goes without saying the in-form John Ryan runner is the one to beat. 1 1/2 stars.

Robero 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
18:45, Southwell

Been running well of late - only just got touched off last time out at Wolverhampton on Monday and the jockey lost his whip! Same mark but George takes over and able to claim 7lbs (had a 5lb claimer on last time) so 2lbs better off. Came out of that race well and can go well over this drop back to 6f - the in-form Sandridge Lad might be a tough nut to crack in it's current mood but we should not be far away and any hopefully we can take advantage of any chinks in the favourite's armour.

Capla Spirit    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gay's horse.


Fri 14th Feb 2020
18:15, Southwell

Three runs to date and despite no wins has shown some fair form. Not been seen since September though and all three runs have been on the turf so far. Handles soft ground though so the fibresand likely to suit. Visor on for the first time to help with kickback and focus, while George's 7lb claim a plus. But after around 5 months will come on for this no matter what, but with the horses going well small chance with the Balding horse the obvious danger. 1 1/2 stars.

King Athelstan 
Fri 14th Feb 2020
16:40, Lingfield Park

Probably our best chance of the day but not particularly well drawn (12). However, if able to oversome the draw - hopeful he can over this 1m4f trip - then should have every chance at a track he likes and often runs well at.

First run on the flat the other day. Showed a little bit of ability but probably best watched on this occasion until gaining more experience, in a weakish maiden.

Ran well last time at Kempton (4th of 14). Had a few weeks to get over that and seems well. Stays over this 2m trip and dropped a pound too. Would be disappointed if does not make the frame today.

Back to best in recent runs and looks to have a chance here though yet to run well at this track. Good claiming rider booked who was unlucky in-running on him a few starts back. Sure to be thereabouts if the race goes well for him.

Fronsac 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Ran his best race at the track - seems suited by the distance and has a decent draw (2) which helps in what is a tight-looking contest for the grade.

Mukha Magic 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
20:30, Chelmsford

Returns from a 173 day break - seems well and the horses are running with credit at the moment, but is expected to just improve for this after such a time off, while draw 10 not ideal either.

Cafe Milano 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
20:00, Chelmsford

Looked unlucky in-running in a small field at Lingfield last start. This looks stronger but he is a winner waiting to happen and could go well at a big price if he is as effective round here.

Te Amo Te Amo 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
18:00, Chelmsford

Yet to show anything on the track and needs to get his confidence. Small glimmer of encouragement on last start here but will need luck from wide draw (12). Could never discount any horse at this level, but needs a big change of attitude to get involved.

Caltex    WINNER! winner

Well backed and a nice winner for Scu - top stuff.


Thu 13th Feb 2020
15:00, Leicester

First run for the yard - has had plenty of racing when with Gordon Elliott, Henry Oliver and more recently Claire Dyson but we'll learn a lot about him here today. Has settled in well though. Also returns from a few months off but is 4lbs lower than last time out. Soft ground okay and we feel the step up in trip will suit and probably not the best of races so that would give us an e/w chance.

Dontminddboys 
Thu 13th Feb 2020

In much the same place as Vocaliser except that this is a warmer contest than Market Rasen last time, when he looked much more like his old self. If no 'bounce' is involved we would be hoping for a placed run.

Got Away 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
14:30, Leicester

This is her first run since wind surgery and she won this race impressively last year under the same weight. Gloria is a frustrating mare to train, she has tons of ability but her form is so in and out. I’m hopeful that her wind issues have played a part in that but you can never be certain. She is a big good looking mare, she is very laid back at home and in her races, she is wearing her usual cheek pieces to concentrate her mind but she is not ungenuine, just lazy.

Vocaliser 
Thu 13th Feb 2020
14:00, Leicester

CD winner here at Leicester that won't mind the soft ground. Very pleased with his last run - staying on second at Sedgefield - as that was also first run back off a wind op. If he can build on that should not be far away. He seems to have come through that race well, and we would be hopeful of a decent run today off the same mark and with Tabitha also claiming 5lbs again.

Spanish Mane    WINNER! winner

Nice call from Julia.


Wed 12th Feb 2020
18:00, Kempton Park

Ran well last time - considering the race didn't go to plan as she was meant to be up front because no obvious pace. She seems in good form and Sophie Ralston takes off a handy 5lbs. We hope things go to plan this time and she has an each-way chance.

Paseo 
Wed 12th Feb 2020
17:30, Kempton Park

Paseo has enjoyed a decent good start to his jumping career being placed and winning from his four runs over hurdles so far. He wants decent ground so I haven’t been able to run him for a while based on that, but he’s got so fresh at home that I decided to let him have a spin here on the AW to help. Paseo is a lovely horse who is full of enthusiasm for everything he does, he enjoys his jumping and with a bit of luck he’ll make up into a nice chaser next season. Tom rides and claims 3lbs.

Winter Snowdrop    WINNER! winner

Much better from Julia's runner.


Wed 12th Feb 2020
17:00, Kempton Park

Has struggled to get in a race off her rating - she has yet to prove that she likes the AW but she tries hard and this looks a weak race, so just hoping she can run well.

Robsdelight 
Wed 12th Feb 2020
16:35, Southwell

Cracking win last time here - showed guts to get up by a nose. Up a pound for that and we put George on to offset 5lbs so actually better off than last time. Track and trip will suit so should be bang there again, but just have a niggle that his looks a slightly hard race than last time so might have to still pull out more. Each-way.

Cosmelli 
Wed 12th Feb 2020

Is fit and well. Course winner here at Southwell and has dropped to a fair mark based on his past form. In fact, is running off career-low mark here. Only had 2 runs at the track (1st and 3rd) and has improved for his recent third here last month. Looks between us Tynecastle and Charlie, but feel we've got a decent chance here with the horses running well at the moment. 2 1/2 stars.

Blow Your Horn 
Tue 11th Feb 2020
19:20, Newcastle

Made a lovely debut when second here at the start of last month. Should have improved for that run and the step up from 7f to 1m here should suit as well. With that track experience under his belt too then should be going close with the Godolphin runner seemingly the one to fear.

Lady of Aran 
Tue 11th Feb 2020
17:50, Newcastle

Has been very good at placing and not so good at winning!! Has finished in the top three in her last three runs (no wins). Stiff 6f suits, which she gets here today, so hopefully they go a decent pace for her too. Slight drop in grade will help too and - as long as the pace is there in the race - feel we must have another decent each-way chance.

Moveonup    WINNER! winner

Another top run from Gay's sprinter.


Tue 11th Feb 2020
15:45, Chelmsford

We might have to play second fiddle here to the Stuart Williams horse who bolted-up last time out, but our horses are going well and if the hot favourite has an off day then we should take advantage. Moveonup has been a different horse since we dropped him back to 5f - winning two of his last three - including one here last month by 2 lengths. He's 6lbs higher for the last win and 10lbs higher than that Chelmsford success here three runs ago. But George, who rode last time, takes off a handy 7lbs again and that's a big help. He likes to blast out from the front so that will be the plan again from the 2 draw and we'll see if we can get the favourite out of it's comfort zone. Each-way.

Rebecke 
Tue 11th Feb 2020
13:35, Chelmsford

Lost her race before it began last time out as got a bit worked up going down to post. Will need to settle before and during the race better this time, but the time before showed encouragement with a decent second at Kempton over 7f. We are also dropping back to 6f here so they should go quicker and then hopefully that will allow her to settle better. Hard to be too confident until we see some more consistent efforts on the track, but drop in trip should certainly help.

Cuban Spirit 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
20:10, Wolverhampton

Won well last time out at Lingfield - we are up 5lbs for that but has booked Finley Marsh to ride here and he claims a handy 3lbs so most of that rise is offset. 5f trip fine and is a course winner here too. Likes run from the front so hoping we can get out from draw 6 (should just about be okay) and play 'catch me, if you can'!  Solid each-way.

Seneca Chief 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
20:10, Wolverhampton

Returns from a big break today (959 days) and also has a tough draw to overcome in 11. 1 1/2 stars

Caledonia Laird 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
18:40, Wolverhampton

Didn't really get away that well last time out here so can be forgiven that run. Same mark but George riding this time to take off 7lbs. Will need to get away better this time and probably a small bit to prove over this slightly longer trip, with all career runs coming over shorter. If getting the trip small e/w chance in what looks a poor race. 1 1/2 stars.

Robero    WINNER! winner

Went down by just a neck.


Mon 10th Feb 2020
17:40, Wolverhampton

The Crisford runner - Double Kodiac - is now a non-runner, so that helps. We head here on top form with a win at Southwell recently. We are up just 2lbs for that and the horse is past CD winner here too so we know he acts well here. Nice draw in 1 and Toby gets on well with the horse and continues to take off 5lbs. Up in grade though here so will need more to follow-up, but in good order and should not be far away in a trappy-looking little race. Each-way.

Little Boy Boru    WINNER! winner

Stayed on well to land the e/w money.


Mon 10th Feb 2020
16:15, Plumpton

Won this race last year and conditions should be ideal for him today as he bids to defend his title! Going has generally been too holding for him on all his starts this season and prefers the ground very wet. A couple look well-in here and not getting any younger, but very hopeful of at least a place as he does also love it here at Plumpton. 2 1/2 stars.

Age of Wisdom    WINNER! winner

Loved the step up in trip.


Mon 10th Feb 2020
16:15, Plumpton

Acts well in this ground and is a course winner. Showed last time that a step up in distance might bring out some improvement in him - up again in distsance here 2m3f to 3m1f, but if improving further for that then should have e/w claims with Niall riding and claiming 7lbs. 

Invicta Lake 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
16:15, Plumpton

Second runner in the race for us. CD winner and after some time off the track, made a pleasing return to hurdling at Fontwell a couple of weeks ago - staying on well. In good heart and possible he could now finish in the frame with a low weight and back up in trip. 1 1/2 stars.

Elisezmoi 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
15:45, Plumpton

First run back from a wind op which hopefully will bring some improvement. However, showed promise on his first run when second at Lingfield, so hopefully he can improve on that. Only 6 runners but e/w claims.

Darkest Day    WINNER! winner

Solid run from Gary's horse.


Mon 10th Feb 2020
15:15, Plumpton

Step up in trip might help (up to 2m4f from 2m) and is also down in grade from last time - would have an e/w chance based on that.

The Flying Sofa 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
14:45, Plumpton

Winner last time but that came on totally different ground which is of slight concern. Up in trip here so needs to get home, but in good order and in a trappy little race - with all four having a chance - surely must have a reasonable say.

Ballydoyle 
Mon 10th Feb 2020
14:15, Plumpton

First run over hurdles. Probably best-watched, but shows enough ability to perhaps have e/w claims in a race that lacks depth and seemingly revolves around the main two in the market.

Will be better for recent run here and 3lbs lower for that. Dropping back to 1m4f but has won over this trip in the past, but might just need another run or two to blow away the cobwebs.

Ride And Prejudice 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
18:30, Wolverhampton

Is coming back from a break - she has been given time to mature. The step up in trip will suit and she has done plenty of work so should run well at a good price.

Limerick Lord 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
17:00, Wolverhampton

Ran well last run with the blinkers on - he has won over course and distance and also for Ross in the past. Well-handicapped now and probably just have Caribbean Spring to beat - each-way chance at a nice price.

Emenem 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
16:40, Lingfield Park

Multiple winner and looks like he could develop into a fair staying handicapper this year. This would be his minimum trip and depends how much pace there is but dangerous to totally discount at a big price.

Norley 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
16:25, Warwick

Debut run here today. Norley is a lovely looking son of Yeats who has a lot of presence about him and as with all of my bumper horses he will improve for the whole experience today, he is not trained to the minute but if he’s good enough he knows enough. You will also be aware that I like bumpers predominantly for educational purposes, we do win plenty but my horses are never given a hard time. They need to enjoy themselves and come home full of confidence at the beginning of what we hope will be a long career and his owner Trevor Hemmings will be anticipating a future staying chaser in the making.

 

Sussex Ranger    WINNER! winner

Much better from Gary's runner.


Sat 8th Feb 2020
16:10, Newbury

Showed promise as a hurdler a few years ago but lost his way a bit since. Had 4 runs over fences and yet to win and despite running well two runs ago at Newbury failed to back that up at Lingfield last time. The better ground here might help though and light weight (10-6lbs) - so small e/w chance but will need more in this Class 3 grade and only 7 runners not ideal for e/w backers. 1 1/2 stars.

Confounding 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
16:05, Lingfield Park

NIce filly that is having her racecourse debut here today. Shows plenty of speed at home and looking forward to getting going with her. Goes without saying will learn a lot from today - and so will we! Draw 8 not ideal, but looking for a respectable first run but really is likely to find those with a run or two already having the experience edge.

Dadsintrouble 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
15:50, Warwick

Useful on his day but has lost his way a bit of late. Dropped 3lbs for last run and slightly better last time out at Market Rasen in a better race than this. Dropped a bit in class here will help and not badly treated on old form. Just need to see a bit more on the track still though before being more confident.

Lord Getaway 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
15:50, Warwick

Ran well last time (3rd Doncaster) and a similar performance off a 2lb lower mark would give him a chance. Place claims at a nice price in what we feel looks an open race.

Twasnt The Plan 
Sat 8th Feb 2020
15:42, Uttoxeter

Yet to win a race (13 runs), but 9 top three finishes. Generally a consistent sort but lost his way recently with last three runs being average. Needs to put them behind him but on a plus has been given a chance by the handicapper being dropped 4lbs more and we also put Charlie on to take off another 5lbs. In current mood not one to totally trust but dropping mark does make him slightly interesting if he does bounce back. 1 1/2 stars.

Thebannerkingrebel

Was placed in a Grade 2 bumper and has won three novice hurdles this season, including a Listed event. He wasn't beaten far in the Grade Two Rossington Main three weeks ago, when carrying a 5lb penalty -
