MUTARAKEZ bolted up last time out in the Bet365 Esher Cup at Sandown, and he is bidding for a three-timer today in the Betfred Mobile Silver Bowl Stakes. He has done really well since his last run, and we are heading there confident that he will run a huge race.
After showing up well at home, ALSHALAAL is due to make his debut this evening at Salisbury. He is a lovely horse but will improve for the outing.
Another winner for Team Meehan yesterday, this time from Goodwood, as CRITICAL RISK dead heats for first place after showing an impressive turn of foot to pass the whole field inside the final two furlongs. Credit should also be given to FATAAAWY, who ran a lovely race on her racecourse debut, and who will have learnt a lot from the experience.
GREAT FUN makes his handicap debut after winning his debut well at Wetherby four weeks ago. Hopefully he can show his mark to be fair by running a great race today.
ABLE SPIRIT has been gelded since his last run, and although he will improve for the outing, hopefully he can run a big race on his first start as a three-year-old.
CAPTAINTHUNDERBOLT makes his second start under Frankie Dettori. Hopefully he can step up on his debut run at Bath and perform well.
MARAAKIB made his seasonal reappearance this year in a warm race at Ascot, and we are hoping that he can improve on that to run a good race here.
A lovely daughter of Invincible Spirit, FATAAWY makes her debut tomorrow. She has shown ability at home, but will improve for the run.
CRITICAL RISK won well last week at Doncaster, and reappears under a penalty in this 0-85 Handicap tomorrow. He has come out of his race well and is in great form, so hopefully he can make a bold bid of winning again.
OFFICER SYDNEY has taken time to come to himself this year, but has done well over the last few weeks, and although he will improve for the outing, we hope he can run a nice on his return.
RACING’S DREAM has strengthened up and done well over the winter. He is in good form at home and although he will come on for the run, we are hoping for a good showing.
HENRYHUDSONBRIDGE is in good form at home, has been working nicely and we are hoping for a good run.
ALSHAAHRAMAN has improved nicely over the winter, has been working well and hopefully he can be involved in the finish
TAGHREEB has won his only two starts to date. The step up in trip should suit this son of Dubawi, and hopefully he can make is three from three.
JOHN SPLENDID is a really nice colt who has been working well at home. He will improve for the run but we are expecting him to run well.
HARVARD MAN makes his second start after winning impressively at Newbury on his debut. He has done really well since his run and we are excited about his return.
GROWL is in great form at home and has been declared for this Carnarvon Listed race over six furlongs.
After MONTALCINO’S last run she was found to have scoped dirty, and after scoping clean this week we are hopeful of seeing the potential she showed last year materialising.
SPARK PLUG ran a very good race in the Spring Mile, and has been working very well since. Hopefully he can go one better than his second last time out.
GREAT FUN made all on his debut at the opening meeting of Wetherby’s flat track. His work has been good since the run and we are hoping he can be involved in the finish.
ASHRIDGE LAD was a weak and backward two-year-old that has matured and filled his large frame over the winter. He has been working nicely but will improve for his first run back this year.
USTINOV makes his handicap debut in this 0-85 over seven furlongs. His home work has been good and we are hoping he can run a nice race.
