PACK IT IN showed up for a long way on his debut at Newbury, before getting tired late on. He has progressed both mentally and physically from that experience, and we are expecting a much improved performance this time, from a horse that is working nicely at home.
NEWTON’S LAW is fresh off a win last time out at Newmarket, and has earned his place in in this competitive Stewards’ Sprint Stakes over six furlongs. He is in good form and should run another big race.
FREEDOM MARCH progressed nicely from her first to her second run and is in good form at home. We are hoping that she can improve again and run a nice race.
SENRIMA has had shown lots of promise on all three of his races, finishing second on debut, before winning a maiden and a handicap on his next two starts. He is, as ever, in great form at home, and we are expecting him to continue his progression and go close in what does look like a very competitive handicap.
FOX TROTTER was a smart two-year-old, last seen finishing second in the Group Three Horris Hill Stakes. He has progressed nicely since last year, is working well, and we are hopeful of a big run under Richard Hughes.
ALSHALAAL ran his best race to date last time out with first time blinkers when finishing second in a maiden at Haydock. We have kept the blinkers on for his Nursery debut, and we are expecting him to run another big race.
MONTALCINO has been in great form at home and ran her best race to date when second at Ascot last time. We are hoping she can run another big race under Joe Fanning.
FATAAWY showed the benefit of her debut run last time out when running a good race to finish second at Newbury. She is in great form at home and she is expected to run another big race dropped back to five furlongs under Neil Callan.
TAWDHEEF illustrated his well-being last time out at Newmarket when finishing third in a strong nursery. A reproduction of that run at a track that should suit him, will hopefully mean that he canbe involved in the finish again.
RATHAATH is working nicely at home and won her last start well at Bath. The track should suit her and we are expecting her to run well under Dane O’Neill.
PRINCESS KODIA ran with credit in the Wetherbys Super Sprint, and can hopefully build on that kept to five furlongs under our apprentice, Ryan Clark.
CARNIVAL KING won a good maiden at the July meeting at Newmarket, and then ran well in a good handicap at Ascot. He has had a break and is working nicely, so hopefully he can run a good race.
ASHRIDGE LAD won his maiden easily last time out, and returns to a Handicap here. He is in great form at home, and although the ground is a bit of an unknown, we are hoping he will run a nice race and be involved in the finish.
