2.05 2m3f Class 4 Handicap Hurdle – Silver Quay 13/8
In brilliant form and still improving now the penny has dropped, he’s chasing a quick hattrick after breaking his maiden tag around Taunton last month in fine style and then backing that up when winning over a identical C&D off 10lbs more NTO, that was in a conditionals jockey race, so although due to go up 7lbs for that victory in the future, he escapes that here which leaves his very well in, Bryony Frost rides once again for her farther and obviously gets on well with the gelding.
3.35 2m7f Class 3 Handicap Hurdle – Aye Right 6/4
Already has 3 wins to his name this season, his only loss this season came in a tough 0-140 at Cheltenham where he was far from disgraced when a close 6th in a good form race. His last victory came at Ayr early last month in another 0-140 race where they went a good gallop and he dictated throughout, he only goes up 4lb for that win and with a distinct lack of pace on here, the progressive gelding looks likely to add to his impressive record in a fairly weak 0-125 race.
4.00 2m7f Class Handicap Chase – Hurricane Dylan 13/8
Another race with no pace involved and likely front runner Hurricane Dylan on paper looks hard to pass, he’s made a good start to his chasing career even if not winning, he looked like winning on chasing debut on New Years Day before been reeled in close home on his preferred good ground, his next race in handicap company was again pleasing even if not at home on softer ground and again looked the likely winner when hitting the front 4 out and pulling away briefly, he unfortunately looked a bit tired on the soft surface and couldn’t maintain it to the line, but still finished a close 3rd, the return to good ground will see his best and a slight drop in trip also a plus.
6.30 6f Class 5 Handicap – Antonia Clara 7/2
Ran a huge race at Kempton the last time she seen handicap company, she had a horrid draw in 12 but was quickly out and ridden to the front, she looked to be going well 1f out and looked likely to win, but early exertions wouldn’t of helped and she only was one paced to the line, she wasn’t so good in her next 2 races, but the 5f clearly doesn’t suit and the return to 6f and back into handicap company will see her at her best and this won’t take much winning especially on a easier mark.
