TATAWU (2.30pm Lingfield) A son of Mawatheeq out of a dam who won over a mile and a quarter on this course as a three year old.Produced a respectable debut effort after a slow start at Salisbury just under three weeks ago, and is expected to build upon that performance in what looks an interesting maiden
INTIBAAH(2.20pm Ascot) Has developed into a very smart sprinter, but needs soft ground to perform to his best and consequently has been lightly raced after a dry Summer. Has been sharpened by a recent outing over this course and distance, and, despite this high level opposition, is expected to run a big race with ground conditions now back firmly in his favour.
MISTER MUSIC (5.25pm Haydock) Has only seen action twice so far this season and will hoping for a much happier return to this course after meeting with serious interference here 20 days ago.Should be sharper for the outing after his five month lay-off however, and the recent fall in his rating should aid his cause. Has produced some solid form in the mud, and hopefully his low draw will prove a positive rather than a negative this time.
POPPET ROCKET (8.00pm Wolverhampton) Well bred daughter of Myboycharlie and hails from a good family which includes July Cup winner Sakhee’s Secret.Produced a respectable debut effort at Newbury last month, running on nicely in the closing stages after a slow start and should be more effective with the benefit of that outing behind her. However, has not been help by her outside draw.
MARAAKIB (2.40pm Leicester) Showed promise early if the season and came back from a Summer break with a very encouraging second in a maiden at Newbury last month. Form of the race looks solid with the fourth landing an easy subsequent success, and, judged on that performance, should have no problems with the prevailing soft ground.
HENRYHUDSONBRIDGE (5.10pm Leicester) Son of Henrythenavigator and makes his second appearance in a four runner race after making his debut in a similar event at Epsom.Will know more of what is required here and an improving showing anticipated.
