13:00 – Primrose Ridge

PRIMROSE RIDGE was no match for the impressive Brocklesby winner Persian Force at Doncaster last week but she clearly knew what was required first time up, making much of the running and keeping on after the winner had taken her measure. The third, Jiffy Boy, has already come out and won since and Primrose Ridge can do her bit for the form and open her account here. Insolente and Star of Lady M, for Kevin Ryan and David O’Meara respectively, have speedy pedigrees and appeal most of the newcomers.


13:30 – Merry Secret

MERRY SECRET is holding his form well and gets the nod in a tricky-looking handicap. He finished third in all three of his starts on the all-weather last month, most recently behind Chookie Dunedin at Southwell when returning to today’s trip of seven furlongs. Asmund, a course-and-distance winner in an apprentice race last season, and Trevie Fountain, a winner already this year after being busy on the all-weather, also merit consideration.

14:05 – Pallas Lord

PALLAS LORD is fit and in top form from the all-weather which may count for plenty in this ordinary contest. He’s won two of his three starts at Newcastle this year, opening his account for his current yard on his latest start in an apprentice contest under 7 lb claimer Ryan Sexton who’s good value for his claim and in the saddle again here. Harvest Day is second choice, with Patontheback completing the shortlist, both of those also fit from successful all-weather campaigns over the winter.

14:40 – Prince Achille

PRINCE ACHILLE is bred to be better than this grade, and following an eye-catching third run in novice company at Newcastle three weeks ago when a never-dangerous sixth behind Monsieur Jumbo, a big step forward could well be on the cards now that he goes handicapping. Copper Mountain, a winner at Southwell in February, is a huge threat if carrying on the good work back on turf, with Sweetest Company, successful at Newcastle last time out, completing the shortlist.

15:15 – Il Bandito

IL BANDITO held his form really well for Charlie Hills last season and could give his new handler James Horton, whose first two starters both finished runner-up recently, his first win if hitting the ground running on his first start since October. Broken Spear ran well at huge odds to finish fifth behind Johan in the Lincoln and is worth another chance over this trip from a good draw in stall two. Lightening Company has few miles on the clock and looks another interesting contender in this big field back on the Flat after a spin over hurdles.




15:50 – Franz

The vote goes to FRANZ, who’s bred to be at least useful and stayed on well when making a winning start for Kevin Ryan at Haydock back in October. With improvement on the cards now that he’s being stepped up in trip, he can take his record to two out of two. Similar comments apply to Zain Nights after getting off the mark for Roger Charlton at the second attempt at Newbury late last year so he’s put forward as the main threat, ahead of Nicholas George and The Predictor who also showed some promise at two.

16:20 – Chanson D’Amour

This handicap is tough to solve with plenty making their reappearance/handicap debut. However, CHANSON D’AMOUR has had more racing than most but she may have needed the run on first start for this yard at Kempton last month. Back in handicap company from a reduced mark and taking a step up in trip, Alice Haynes’ charge gets the tentative selection. Mister Falsetto, Salonica, Hilts and Zimmerman are just a handful of alternatives.



16:53 – Al Qaasim

A tricky closing contest to solve but the vote goes to AL QAASIM, who saw his race out much better than might have been expected having raced freely when beaten just over a length into third behind Sandyman at Doncaster nine days ago. Twice successful at Southwell early this year, he’s still lightly raced on turf and, from this unchanged mark, David O’Meara’s charge can notch a third success of the year. Cathayensis, Kingson and We Still Believe head up the opposition.
