Nick Shiambouros heads to Thirsk this afternoon for the first part of his double, before a trip to Kempton will hopefully round of proceedings...
"I was impressed with her attitude, and should be more effective over this longer trip."
Abbie Power to graduate
Abbie Power looks like the horse to beat in this Restricted Novice Stakes.
This filly caught the eye on debut when finishing second to Atomic Force at Hamilton last month. Despite not looking fully wound up, she got the hang of things in the closing stages and finished the race willingly.
There was a lot to like, and has every right to move forward. The form has worked out well with the winner, third and fourth going on to win races. The 2.255/4 on the Sportsbook is about right.
Sea Sylph to defy penalty
Sea Sylph is my idea of the winner of this interesting Novice Stakes.
This Sea The Stars filly beat Long Tradition in a similar event at Windsor earlier this month. The runner-up made her pull out all the stops inside the final furlong, but held on in determined fashion. The front two finished a long way ahead of the rest.
I was impressed with her attitude, and should be more effective over this longer trip. Chiasma is the obvious danger. She is a full sister to Frankel, but has been turned over at a short price on both starts. The 2.3811/8 on the Sportsbook is fair.
