5.24 Newmarket – Jumby – WON 5/2

5.24 Newmarket – Jumby & Mystery Smiles Jumby has been a high class handicapper over 6f this season since his debut, which was an excellent run behind subsequent Group winner, Creative Force. A winner of a competitive 6f handicap here at Newmarket, he also ran a cracker when 3rd to the hugely progressive Great Ambassador, before […]

3.50 Haydock – Summers Knight – WON 9/5 (Adv 11/4 *r4)

A really progressive handicapper for Sir Mark Prescott, winning a few on the bounce early in the season, before a cracking effort when 2nd at Haydock in a very good handicap in July. He then won his next two before a slightly under par effort at York last time, but that was the most competitive […]

3.30 Pontefract – Oso Rapido – WON 3/1 (Adv 4/1)

Has run really well on each of his last 4 runs for his new yard, with 3 of those efforts on ground perhaps not quite as quick as he’d like. With the ground riding on the quick side at Pontefract today, he gets his ideal conditions and is well drawn in stall 2 to enable […]

1.00 Redcar – Gnat Valley – WON 16/5

Was very unlucky on her handicap debut following a slow start at Ripon, where she travelled strongly and just couldn’t make up the ground lost at the start. Stepping up in trip last time at York, she again stayed on really well over 6 ½ furlongs, having looked to get slightly outpaced. That wouldn’t suggest […]

5.00 Yarmouth – Natural Path – WON 7/4 (Adv 5/2)

With the ground drying out at Yarmouth, it was certainly best to be up with the pace yesterday. Natural Path won really well for us last time at Lingfield when racing prominently and quickening in really good style. He’s still lightly raced since switching over to the Michael Bell stable from France and has more […]

3.30 Sandown – Mostahdaf – WON 7/4

Progressed really nicely over the first part of the season, winning at Kempton and then following up in a listed event here on soft ground; where he was comfortably on top at the finish. He endured a rough passage when stepped into group 1 company at Royal Ascot, and that run can be forgiven. The […]

3.45 Doncaster – Modern News – WON 6/4

Having won at Newmarket on his debut as a 2yo, he was then pitched in at Royal Ascot where he didn’t seem to appreciate the soft ground behind Battleground in the Chesham. He then ran pretty well behind a fair sort at Epsom on his only other run as a juvenile. A return to action […]

4.35 Goodwood – Highland Rocker – WON 2/1

Was a notebook horse from Newmarket last time, and whilst we suggested he’d be of real interest when stepped up to 1m4f, the form has worked out so well, he’s worth being with here over the same trip. Ridden with patience that day and finding trouble in running, he stayed on really well into 4th […]

2.05 Yarmouth – Finest Sound – WON 7/4

At his best on a quicker surface, he’s shown a high level of form over the last couple of seasons over a mile and deserves another chance over this trip, having come 3rd at Doncaster last on a slightly softer surface. He looked like he was always going to pick up the front two, but […]

4.45 Goodwood – Snowalot – WON 11/8 (Adv 5/2)

A lightly raced improving handicapper, who really should have won last time when 2nd to a subsequent winner in Dancing Harry who bolted up by 5 lengths next time. He’d previously bolted up on just his 2nd handicap start and was sent off joint fav last time. Travelling very well, he found himself trapped on […]
