KITAABY made a great introduction at Newbury yesterday, coming home strongly to finish second in his maiden. SENRIMA confirmed the promise of his debut run at Windsor by winning his maiden, in which he was value for much more than the winning margin.
SPARK PLUG has been declared for the seventeen-runner Coral Challenge Handicap over a mile. We are very pleased with him at home and he is working well. We are expecting a big run under Ryan Moore.
MONTALCINO showed her true form last time out in a Listed race at Newbury after a below-par run on her seasonal reappearance at Ascot. She has improved since then and is working nicely. As a consequence, we are heading to Sandown expecting her to run a big race with the assistance of Ryan Moore.
MARAAKIB is making his all-weather debut in this race over a mile. He is in great form at home, and hopefully he takes to the surface and runs a big race.

SENRIMA ran an eye-catching race on debut at Windsor two and a half weeks ago, and we are hoping that he can improve on that and shed his maiden tag on his second start.
HENRYHUDSONBRIDGE is dropping into selling company today for his all-weather debut under Hayley Turner. He is in good form at home and hopefully he can run a big race.
OFFICER SYDNEY makes his handicap debut in this race under our apprentice, Ryan Clark. He has come on for his last run and hopefully he can run a nice race.
NEWTON’S LAW won impressively last night under Ryan Moore at Newmarket.
JOHN SPLENDID ran a brilliant race on debut at Newbury, the form of which has been well-advertised since. He has done well since his run and we are confident of him being involved in the finish. ET TOI is a lovely Pour Moi colt that has been showing up nicely at home, although he will improve for his debut experience.
JIMENEZ ran a great race on debut in a good maiden at Newmarket, and came out of his race well. We are confident he will run a big race this evening.
