Richard Hannon: “She’s got lots of pace and has a great chance”

May 27, 2022


2:05 Hilary Needler

Distinguished Lady (Hayley Turner)
Everything went wrong for her at Newmarket when she got taken on for the lead so did too much in front and then got badly hampered at a crucial stage, but we fancied her to almost win that day and it was just unlucky how things panned out. She’s a good filly and the drop back in trip won’t be a problem. She’s got lots of pace and has a great chance.



Sassy Babe (Sam Hitchcott)
She was well beaten at Windsor on debut but will have learnt plenty from it and I’ve been happy with her at home. I do think she’ll be better in Handicaps further down the line, though.


3:45 H’cap

Oh This Is Us (Andrea Atzeni)
He could be dangerously well handicapped off just 92 and he likes it around here. Stall three shouldn’t be a problem and he’s been in good form at home so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the premises.

4:20 Maiden

Revisit (Andrea Atzeni)
She’s a nicely bred filly with plenty of winners in her family and goes well at home. Like many of ours, she’ll come on for the run but this doesn’t look the strongest Maiden and hopefully she can run a decent race.


4:40 H’cap

Windseeker (Dane O’Neill)
He’s a very smart colt who is progressing nicely and I was impressed with his attitude at Salisbury last time. This is his first start in a Handicap and he should handle the ground.


5:35 Novice Stakes

Lulworth Cove (Sean Levey)
She’s a sharp filly who’s been ready to go for a while and this looks a good starting point. There’s no doubt she’ll improve for the run but she goes nicely at home and should make her presence felt.

Silencer (Cieren Fallon)
His work has been good and he’s pretty street wise so should know his job and Cieren came and had a sit on him last week and was happy with how he went. We think quite a lot of him and he should run well.

8:45 H’cap

Pyrrhic Dancer (Sean Levey)
He’s yet to show any proper form and there’s no doubt he needs to step up on what he’s shown so far to be a serious contender here.
