FAITHFUL CREEK(9.25pm Santa Anita) Gets a his chance to join our Breeders Cup role of honour and brings a solid level of smart form to the table from the domestic scene. Has been pleasing us in his preparation and hopefully the fitting of blinkers for the first time can see him step up on those previous performances.
STORMY PARADISE (2.00pm Newmarket) More than useful two year old last season and was making his first appearance for nearly 12 months when returning to action over this course and distance last month.Not surprisingly was a little ring rusty and is expected to step up on that performance here.
RECOVER (6.25pm Kempton) Made her debut in June and has seen action on three subsequent occasions, including her best effort so far at Musselburgh on her latest start.Has a progressive profile and should run well here, but is making her first appearance for three months, and will be sharper for the run.
RED STRIPES (1pm Leicester) Makes his first appearance in a Nursery after four outings in Maidens. Starts off at the right end of the handicap, and it will be interesting to see if he can step up on the form shown so far.
Son of FAST COMPANY, MUTARAKEZ wins Doncaster Maiden on second outing.
He progressed nicely throughout the year and came on a lot from his first run. Like his father FAST COMPANY, also trained by Brian Meehan, he has lots of scope.
Paul Hanagan said he is a really nice horse who will improve again. Brian Meehan said “I think he is a lovely horse who will develop over the winter. He has a great temperament, just like his father and I am looking forward to seeing him run next year. Congratulations to Shadwell and their team”.
