5.45 Maiden: EPICURIOUS- He is a progressive type and he will come on for the run. Martin Dwyer rides.
2.30 Fred Darling Stakes- THINK FASHION- The form from her last start is strong and she is fully entitled to this step up in grade. She has been working well this Spring and I think she will justify her place in this race. Jimmy Fortune rides.
4.15 Maiden (Div.1)- ALQALSAR- has developed into a lovely horse over the Winter. He is ready to run and should benefit greatly from this experience. Jimmy Fortune takes the ride.
4.45 Maiden (Div.2)- SAAHEQ- this lovely son of Invincible Spirit from a family we know well, as I trained the dam. He keeps on improving and I look forward to running him. Jimmy Fortune rides.
4.45 Maiden (Div.2)- ESPRESSO MARTINI- this horse belongs to an exciting new partnership and I believe he has the potential to be a very nice horse and I am keen to get him on the racecourse. Fran Berry takes the ride.
2.00pm-MYSAAN- He is a very exciting colt for a new partnership and he has been showing all the right signs at home and we are really looking forward to him running. We expect him to improve greatly after his run. Jimmy Fortune rides.
3.05pm-RAHEEN HOUSE- he has done exceptionally well over the winter and his work throughout the Spring has been very strong and I am confident of a big run. Jimmy Fortune takes the ride.
4.10pm-BACCHUS- He has done physically very well all Winter. he has been working well and this looks a great starting point for a successful season ahead. William Buick rides.
7.00pm-PRINCESS NIA- she has done well for a break and she comes here in good form. She will benefit for the run. Martin Dwyer rides.
7.30pm-INTERNATIONAL LAW- He had 2 strong runs at a two year old and with the application of cheek pieces we feel he could take all the beating in this maiden. Jimmy Fortune takes the ride.
Newmarket- 3.00pm- WINDFAST: Ground become too soft for him at the back end of last season after a great win at Newmarket. He has been working really well all Spring and unfortunately he had a foot abscess last week which meant he couldn’t start at Bath but he is ready to run in the Abernant Stakes on Thursday and we think he can go very close.
Newmarket- 4.45pm- RISING: Ran a lovely race on his first and only start last year. He has wintered well and I am excited about his first run of the year.
Newmarket- 3.00pm Earl Of Sefton Stakes – SPARK PLUG returns back to his course and distance success in the Cambridgeshire last year. He has been in great form at home and fully deserves the step up in class and we are confident of a big performance from him.
Newmarket- 3.30pm- MUTARAKEZ runs over a mile with Jordan Uys (7) riding. He is in great form at home and we hope he will deliver a good run today.
WINDFAST- Bath 4.00pm: He finished last season with a great win at listed level. He is showing great exuberance at home and a return to that form should see him run a very big race. Jimmy Fortune rides.
TAKE THE HELM- Lingfield 1.40pm: He has been in brilliant form the last few weeks and won again at the weekend. He has a wide draw to overcome but it is in super form so we are hopeful he can be very competitive again. Jordan Uys rides.
I’VEGOTTHEPOWER runs in a Handicap at Nottingham at 5:20.
He showed improvement at the end of last year when stepped up to 1m so hopefully the step up to 1m2f can see yet more improvement.
He has a plum draw in stall 1 and Jordan Uys takes a valued 7lbs off his back.
FASTAR runs in the 2:35 Maiden and Jimmy Fortune rides.
He ran really on debut before not handling Goodwood next time out. His homework has been good all winter and goes there in good form so we are hopeful of a big run.
TAKE THE HELM runs in the 4:15 Handicap and Kieran Fox rides.
He has been in great form since the turn of the new year and seems very well in himself so a repeat of his last few runs should see him be very competitive.
