  2. Nottingham 13:45 Cowboy Soldier Twelve runs since last win in 2019. First run since leaving Robert Cowell when good second of 10 in handicap at Thirsk (5f, good, 11/2) 7 days ago. Can't be ruled out.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Chester 15:15 El Astronaute Smart and likeable sort who has a superb record at this track. Should be ready to go on return, so he's the one to beat.
  5. Last week
  6. Chester 16:45 Set Point 1pt Win Sea The Stars colt who ran out a good winner of a Nottingham maiden in October. Improved a shade further upped in trip on return at Newbury so not ruled out on handicap debut trying 1½m.
  7. Kempton 13:50 Adjali Smart juvenile hurdler in 2018/19. Stiff task in the Martin Pipe last time and had previously shown promise over fences at Ludlow. Could be the way to go.
  8. Newmarket 13:50 Zabeel Champion Progressive handicapper who arrives on the back of a brace of wins at Ripon in April. Uncomplicated sort who could yet have more to offer.
  9. Earlier
  10. Newmarket 15:00 Pyledriver Made up into a very smart 3-y-o last term, landing King Edward VII at Royal Ascot and York's Great Voltigeur. Also good third in the St Leger. Holds very solid claims with ground conditions to suit. 16:50 Secret Protector Improving War Front colt who returned to this country with an excellent second to Highland Avenue in a listed event here 18 days ago. Leading claims with longer trip sure to suit. 17:25 Forest Falcon Progressive juvenile, readily making all in a Yarmouth novice (1m) in September. Solid pair of runners-up efforts in handicaps bot
  11. Cheltenham 18:10 Trio For Rio Fairly useful chaser/winning pointer. First run since leaving Warren Greatrex when career best when landing 13-runner hunter chase at Ludlow 57 days ago, forging clear. Difficult to oppose. Chepstow 17:05 Sir Plato C&D winner. Not ideally placed when seventh of 13 in handicap at Windsor (8.1f, good to firm, 33/1) 18 days ago, Visor back on and well in the mix.
  12. Punchestown 16:50 Alpha Des Obeaux Useful chaser. Fourteen runs since last win in 2018. Completed, albeit a long behind in the Grand National 19 days ago. Fourth in the Cross Country prior to that and has to be taken seriously. 17:25 Flooring Porter High-class hurdler. Further progress when winning 15-runner Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham (good to soft) 42 days ago by 3¼ lengths from Sire Du Berlais, making all in a good time. The one to beat. Redcar 15:50 Spirit Of Bermuda Lightly-raced winner. One win from 3 runs last year. 11/1, creditable fourth of 10 in handicap a
  13. Ascot 16:30 Rewaayat Much-improved when landing a 6f Salisbury handicap by 7½ lengths last July. Ran creditably after 8 months off when second of 11 at Newmarket (5f) 15 days ago. Should go well with that under his belt. Pontefract 15:50 True Mason Endured a tough 2020 but has dropped a long way in the weights as a result and shaped encouragingly after 6 months off when third in 6f handicap at Newcastle 26 days ago. Looks ready to strike.
  14. Nottingham 17:05 Shalaa Asker All the better for return when just failing over C&D and backed that up when third at Thirsk 10 days ago, shaping better than the bare result. One to be interested in. Ayr 20:15 Wootton Creek Plenty of promise when runner-up on first 2 starts and had soft ground as an excuse when disappointing at Nottingham on final outing. Worth another chance on return for top yard in excellent form.
  15. Naas 14:25 Make A Challenge C&D winner. Bit below form 3 lengths third of 15 to Laugh A Minute in listed race at Cork (6f, good to soft) 23 days ago, shaping as if needing the run. Usual cheekpieces refitted and claims. Windsor 18:20 Classical Wave Latest win at Lingfield in March. 7/4, second of 7 in handicap at Lingfield (10f, AW) 16 days ago. Clearly in great heart and a massive player if as effective on turf.
  16. Navan 15:50 Thinking Of You Debut 7f Limerick winner. 3/1, creditable seventh of 9 to Saffron Beach in Oh So Sharp Stakes at Newmarket (7f, soft). Off 6 months. Tongue strap on 1st time. In the mix. Salisbury 16:30 Brasca 7/2, showed he retains all his ability after 19 months off when second of 4 in handicap at Wolverhampton (12.2f) 26 days ago, needing the emphasis more on stamina. Leading claims.
  17. Sandown 13:55 On To Victory Smart on Flat, landing November Handicap last year. Successful in a maiden/novice either side of not being seen to best effort in the Betfair Hurdle and his mark looks very fair. 15:05 Altior Outstanding on his day, winner of 15 of his 17 starts over fences, including the last 3 running of this, but he was below par on return at Kempton in December. Now tried in cheekpieces. 16:15 Younevercall Smart hurdler who shaped better than the distance beaten suggests in the Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last month. Won this race in 2019 so o
  18. Sandown 14:25 Hukum Highly-progressive colt who followed up his Royal Ascot handicap win with a smooth display in Geoffrey Freer at Newbury. Didn't quite stay trip when fifth in St Leger final start. Should do well at 4. 16:40 Sea The Shells Dante/Derby entry who looked very useful when winning 9.5f Wolverhampton novices in February/March. Selected to take the next step up the ladder in his stride. Perth 13:30 Fortunes Melody Useful hurdler for David Cottin in France. Ran a good way below that level when second on her British debut at Southwell, but it's too soon to b
  19. Beverley 16:25 Mythical Madness Good third of 8 in handicap at Wolverhampton (9.5f, 50/1) 17 days ago, helped by being held up in strongly-run race. Perth 13:50 Quick Draw Low-mileage hurdler who in first-time cheekpieces, got off the mark in a handicap that took less winning than seemed likely at Chepstow 17 days ago, wandering late on. Leading claims nudged up 3 lb.
  20. Ludlow 13:35 Hatcher Justified support when making winning return to fences at Southwell in July. Not disgraced in tougher races at Cheltenham and Newbury but well held last 2 starts 3 months apart.
  21. Sedgefield 13:30 Valence D'aumont C&D winner in February 2020 and ran well on return at Carlisle in October. Off again since but must be of interest if ready to roll once more for in-form yard. Southwell 20:30 En Couleur Modest Flat/hurdles maiden. Remains with potential over this sort of trip on handicap debut in this sphere and of real interest having shaped well here on debut.
  22. Pontefract 14:00 Red Tornado Fifteen runs since last win in 2014. Respectable third of 7 in handicap (12/1) at this course (18f, good to firm) 13 days ago. Looks to have leading claims up in trip given recent efforts here. Hexham 13:20 Las Tunas Scored over 2m at Carlisle in October and hinted at a revival when fourth of 6 in 2m handicap at Wetherby (good) 18 days ago. Not ruled out off a reduced mark. Limerick 16:55 Siberian Star Career best when winning 18-runner handicap hurdle at Leopardstown (24f, good) 42 days ago. 8 lb higher now but looks sure to go well
  23. Stratford 15:07 Captain Buck's Fairly useful handicap chaser for Paul Nicholls and, having scored between the flags for current yard, returned to Rules as good as ever when scoring at Musselburgh last time. Solid claims again. Newbury 14:10 Alcohol Free Vastly progressive filly who landed the Cheveley Park at Newmarket on her final outing last year and reappears with more improvement on the cards, so she's clearly the one to beat. Ayr 13:15 Grand Sancy Smart hurdler who doubled his tally over fences when bolting up in 19.5f Chepstow listed event on return in Octo
  24. Thirsk 13:10 Ghathanfar Career best when winning 13-runner handicap (7/1) at Redcar (6f, good to firm) 12 days ago. Expected to be bang there despite 6 lb rise. Bangor 11:55 Rukwa Flat winner in December and continued good work over timber this spring, resuming winning ways in a conditional jockeys' event at Huntingdon (20.6f) 5 days ago. Another big run anticipated. 12:25 Crooks Peak Has been rather disappointing over hurdles for this yard but latest third at Exeter was best effort for a while and is potentially well handicapped back over fences. Nottingham
  25. Ballinrobe 18:00 Minx Tiara 2 wins from 5 runs this season, latest win in chase at Thurles in February. Switches to hurdles and much respected.
  26. Ayr 13:00 Mrs Hyde Bumper winner for Fergal O'Brien. Has won 4 of her 6 starts for this yard over hurdles, including 2 listed victories. Unable to bring up the hat-trick at Newbury but rates a leading player on return. Newbury 13:40 King's Lynn Landed valuable sales' event as a 2-y-o and progressed again last year, finding only Aberama Gold too strong at Doncaster (6f) in October. Gelded since and type to do better again this term. Player. Fontwell 15:00 Ocean Cove Gained breakthrough chasing win on the back of a wind op at Doncaster (3m) in February. Not in same
  27. Newmarket 16:10 Scope Teofilo colt (from family of Look Here) who handled heavy ground well when getting on top close home in a Newbury novice (1m) in October. Better to come up in trip and he's of real interest on return. Newcastle 16:55 Top Fox 9/4, didn't need to be at best when winning 11-runner maiden at Kempton (12f) 50 days ago. Should progress and looks the one to beat on handicap debut.
  28. Cheltenham 13:30 Faivoir Won Grade 2 hurdle at Haydock prior to excellent third in the Morebattle at Kelso. Made very hard work of landing cramped odds at Newbury last time, but circumstances were far from ideal. Beverley 15:25 Action Hero Career best when winning 9-runner maiden at Southwell (7f, 8/13) on reappearance in January, readily making all. Respected now handicapping for good yard. 17:10 Unknown Pleasures Lightly-raced maiden. 4/1, below form sixth of 15 in maiden at the Curragh (8f, good to soft). Off 6 months. Strong claims on her best form and looks the s
  29. Newcastle 20:30 Blind Beggar Fairly useful maiden over sprint trips at 2 yrs. Off 6 months. AW debut and has a race in him if he's trained on. Leading claims. Newton Abbot 13:50 Glory And Honour Point winner who has made fine start over hurdles, scoring at Huntingdon and excellent second on handicap bow at Ludlow (2m5f) last time when travelling strongly long way. More to offer back in trip. 14:20 Tequila Blaze Fair hurdler who has been runner-up 3 times from 4 starts in maiden/novice hurdles this season and should be on the premises again.
