Alan had a winner yesterday but missed out on the double at Wolverhampton, but he has two fancied runners at Nottingham and Kempton tonight while Chelsea are fancied to win in Italy...
"However, he really looked the part winning the Silver Bowl at Haydock earlier in the season with a performance that oozed quality."
Newcomer to make her mark
Fierospeed and an easy Liverpool triumph were our two winners yesterday, unfortunately we missed out on both doubles - unlike Mo Salah, who helped himself to another brace.
A good-looking maiden awaits at Nottingham - a track that often gives a nod to great horses in the race titles. Today, Oh So Sharp and Slip Anchor are remembered.
Hopefully Romantic Symbol will be in the memory bank is she puts up a good performance on her debut this afternoon, as one of the best bred horses on show. She's out of my favourite sire Sea The Stars and her dam (who raced in France) is by Dubawi. A regal pedigree if ever there was one.
Her rivals either side in the betting are Fresh Hope and Cave Diver - who both shaped well on their respective first starts, but I am fascinated to see how Romantic Symbol goes on her debut for Charlie Appleby - a trainer who has had 26 juvenile turf winners.
Varian can claim scalp of the favourite in feature
One of the best races of the day comes at Kempton and a 0-105 handicap that includes quite a few horses nudging ratings of 100.
A couple are on retrieval missions, but Raadobarg looks a horse on the up with several good runs this term.
His recent third at the St Leger meeting in a competitive handicap behind Royal Fleet looks strong handicap form, with the winner rated 100. However, he really looked the part winning the Silver Bowl at Haydock earlier in the season with a performance that oozed quality.
Off a strong pace, he sauntered into contention 2f from home and had to stay to fight off the runner-up.
He makes his AW debut, but he's by Night Of Thunder whose stock do ever so well at Kempton with a 24% win rate and 50% place.
Daily Multi-Sports Double
Timeform says: "Ava Go Joe returned to form when second on his latest start at York, sticking to his task well to be beaten just half a length. That was the fifth time he has filled the runner-up spot this season, but there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with his attitude. He can race from the same mark as he did at York and today could be the day that he gets his head back in front."
Mark O'Haire says: "Goals have been reasonably prevalent in Juventus' matches this term. The Old Lady's only shutout arrived against Malmo on MD1, and the Italians' have been struggling to keep the goals out domestically for quite some time. Such frailties and vulnerabilities could be exposed against a Chelsea squad that's dripping in offensive quality, with a point to prove."
