NEWBURY

2:25 G3 Fred Darling Stakes

Symphony Perfect (Pat Dobbs)

We like the Fred Darling and this filly looked good when winning her Listed race last October and she’s definitely filled out over the winter. She’s been working great and has improved a bit since last year so I wouldn’t write her off. 

3:00 G3 Greenham Stakes

Lusail (Pat Dobbs)

He’s been working very well and will have no problem with the trip. I think he’s strengthened up a whole lot over the winter and he comes into this with every chance. He’s very tough.

Gubbass (Ryan Moore)

He was very smart as a two year old and enjoyed a great pay day in the Super Sprint but I’m not sure he’s entirely on his A game yet because he work hasn’t been fantastic and I expect him to come on a lot for it. 

3:35

Etonian (Pat Dobbs)

It’s fantastic to have him back and he’s been moving great at home. While has plenty of weight we are looking at the G1 Al Shaqab Lockinge so he’d need to run very well in this if we’re to come back here for that next month.

Teodolina (Jamie Spencer)

She badly needed her first run back in the Lincoln last time and the ground was plenty quick enough as well and it could be a similar story here because she does like plenty of cut; but she’s a smart filly who has a solid each way shout if good enough.

Oh This Is Us (Sean Levey)

He’s been a star throughout his whole career and just when you think he’s done, he pops up and does the business so you can never rule him out.

Mr Tyrell (George Rooke)

He’s stepping back up in trip and has been dropped a few pounds which will help, along with George’s 3lbs claim, but this is very competitive and I do feel we have better chances in the race.

4:10

God Of Thunder (Hollie Doyle)

He’s a nice colt by Tagula who has been showing enough at home to suggest he’s ready for a run but I do think he’ll learn a lot here.

Marsoul (Sean Levey)

He ran well enough on debut at Leicester and should have come on for it but he’d need to improve a lot to be a serious win contender.

Zoom (Pat Dobbs)

He’s run well in both starts as a two year old, including in a big Sales race at Newmarket last October. The step up to a mile is a massive plus and he’d be our best chance in the race. I quite like him. 

4:45

Duelist (Sean Levey)

He’s from a lovely family we all know well and he showed plenty of promise as a juvenile and could end up a smart horse. We’ve given him a wind op over the winter which will help his breathing and he isn’t without a chance, although he will be better over further in time.

Tashkent (Pat Dobbs)

He’s by Acclamation, who is a sire we like, and this colt has done everything right at home but I do feel he’ll be more of a handicap prospect in the future. 

5:55

Clay (Jamie Spencer)

He’s been in fair form at home but can be a little tricky and I’d be expecting him to improve for this.

 

MUSSELBURGH

1:32

Desert Angel (Paul Mulrennan)

He enjoyed a great campaign last season and continued to improve and improve. I was delighted with his first run back at Wolverhampton last month and he’s come on a lot for it. He has a cracking chance in this and I’ll be disappointed if he’s not bang there.

Sir Rumi (Rossa Ryan)

He was very consistent last year and has come back into training looking a million dollars. I’m hoping he could develop into a smart stayer and I’m confident of a bold show in a race which looks ideal.

3:47

Just Dashing (Rossa Ryan)

She’s a lovely filly by Ardad who is a sire going places. I wouldn’t say she’s been working the house down but she shows more than enough to suggest she won’t struggle to win races, but it’s just a question as to whether she’s quite sharp enough to win first time out. 

4:22

Kool Moe Dee (Rossa Ryan)

He hasn’t won for quite some time but is very speedy and the sort of horse who could ‘go in’ on his first run back. Put it this way, there won’t be any improvement from a fitness point of view. 

4:57

Always Fearless (Rossa Ryan)

He’s been busy on the All Weather this winter and running consistently so has to enter the reckoning because he’s got fitness on his side and if he can bounce back from a poor run at Chelmsford you couldn’t entirely rule him out. 

NOTTINGHAM

6:15

Gaius (Dane O’Neill)

He shouldn’t still be a Maiden and I’m quite hoping he won’t be after this. The step up to 1m2f is exactly what he wants and he should take plenty of beating.

Space Odyssey (Paul Hanagan)

He’s a handsome homebred of Sheikh Obaid’s by Sea The Stars who is from a lovely family. This looks a good starting point but he’ll learn plenty and I expect him to come on for the experience. 

6:45

Pyrrhic Dancer (Dane O’Neill)

He’s yet to really show a great deal but has his first start in a Handicap which might see him in a better light. 

7:15

Victorious Night (Liam Browne)

He’s a pretty solid Handicapper who is quite consistent and comes back this season off a potentially appealing mark of 73. Liam retains the ride and I can’t see any reason why he won’t reward each way support. 

LINGFIELD

5:30

Malhumorada (Alec Voikhansky)

She ran quite green at Windsor on her debut but is learning all the time and is from a family with plenty of winners. She’s only small so we’re taking 7lbs off and she might improve a bit with experience.
