Thursday’s Runners 5/5/11

ARABIAN FALCON (Goodwood 2.40 p.m.) A colt who ran fast on his debut before tiring in a very strong Newbury maiden. From a speedy and classy family – his siblings include Group 1 winning sprinter Carmine Lake – he will know more about it this time. RED INCA (Goodwood 3.15 p.m.) Very promising effort on his sole juvenile start at Newbury in late summer but,...

Wednesday’s Runners 11/05/11

INLER (York 3.00 p.m.) We were delighted with his comeback at Newmarket which will have blown away the cobwebs for this talented performer. He improved throughout the second half of last year and having continued to work well since that comeback, he deserves his shot at this level. GOOD CLODORA (Kempton 6.50 p.m.) A nice Red Clubs filly who has been going well at home....

TUESDAY RUNNERS (May 31 2011)

ELUSIVITY (Leicester 3.15 p.m.) Consistent gelding who made a winning return in brave style at Kempton. Just failed to make all, caught close home, in a  better race at Newmarket. Working very well since and has a great chance with ground and distance in his favour on a track that should suit his style of racing. MEHDI (Leicester 4.15 p.m.) Talented Holy Roman Emperor...

Wednesday runners (June 1, 2011)

BREZZA DI MARE (Nottingham 3.45 p.m.) Improved greatly on his two unplaced juvenile runs with a bold effort in second on his comeback at Chepstow. Should not be troubled to stay the extra distance and can go well despite carrying top weight. BORAGH JAMAL (Kempton 6.50 p.m.) Speedy filly but she has been unlucky in the draw and will need things to go right to overcome...

Lady Of The Desert set for Golden Jubilee date

BY PAUL EACOTT     31 MAY 2011 LAST season’s Prix de l’Abbaye runner-up Lady Of The Desert is likely to start her season in the Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. The Brian Meehan-trained four-year-old is a 10-1 chance for both the 6f Group 1 and the King’s Stand Stakes over the minimum trip at the royal meeting but Meehan has said he is...

THURSDAY RUNNERS (June 2, 20ll)

BOSTON COURT (Lingfield 2.20 p.m.) Wants a trip and needed his run at Sandown but went well for a long way. Small each-way chance. WORTH (Lingfield 4.20 p.m.) Nice filly who has run consistently when placed in her two races. We think she has a winning chance. SIGNOR VERDI (Sandown 7.35 p.m.) There was no obvious excuse for his poor run at Newmarket which was so far at...

FRIDAY RUNNERS (June 3, 2011)

CANAVERAL (Bath 7.05 p.m.) Much improved on juvenile form when easily winning over the course last month. Has improved at home in the interim and has a great chance of a follow-up. ACIANO (Doncaster 7.40 p.m.) Got very upset in the stalls at Sandown, but has been schooled since and everything was fine. We are hopeful of a good run especially as he made up ground at...

SATURDAY RUNNERS (June 3, 2011)

HAPPY TODAY (Doncaster 3.25 p.m.) Creditable staying-on sixth in the 2,000 Guineas, a run that suggested this extra two furlongs would suit. He is Royal Ascot-bound and as he is quite a lazy horse, Happy Today should benefit further from the gallop today. SHE’S FLAWLESS (Doncaster 4.30 p.m.) She always showed a fair bit at home before her Haydock debut, but a very...

Second Sangster 2011 Classic winner

The first weekend of June 2011 may be forever remembered as the time when Her Majesty the Queen finally won the Derby – should that be the case tomorrow (Saturday) at Epsom – but historically it could become equally memorable for the Sangster family’s Swettenham stud. Yesterday at Epsom, the Swettenham-bred Dancing Rain, a daughter of Danehill Dancer...
