We start the day at Goodwood for the 13.50 1m2f Listed race, where French Navy has seen steady support in to 2.8815/8 from a high of 3.55/2. Charlie Appleby's runner has been running consistently of late, finishing in the frame on six of his last seven starts, the most recent being a second over 1m on Soft ground last month at Ascot. Today's step back up in trip should suit as this six-year-old by Shamardal has previously won over this course and distance, and with ground to suit and the last winning jockey, Adam Kirby, back on-board, French Navy could well be making a return to the winner's enclosure.

Heading to Catterick for the 14.15 1m4f Claiming Stakes, where we find our biggest drifter of the day, in this now four runner race, Incendo has moved from 2.57 out to 4.77/2. This eight-year-old gelding has notched up five wins in his career so far, and is running well of late in claimers in England and in France, finishing third at Southwell over 1m6f five days ago. However, Ian Williams' runner was favourite that day and was beaten by over three lengths. Also, four of his five wins have been on the all-weather, and the last turf win was back in 2010, making Incendo worth opposing today.

Staying at Catterick for our second positive in the 17.10 6f Handicap, where Fleurtille has been supported in to 3.9 from 5.37. This five-year-old mare finished third by three quarters of a length in her most recent start just four days ago at Newcastle over 5f on good ground. Robert Johnson's charge was running on at the end of that race, suggesting that 6f should be worth another try, having run well at that trip in her only attempt back in September last year. Since then Fleurtille has gained three wins over 5f all with ease in the going and two of those wins were at today's track. The market suggests today could be Fleurtille's time to shine over 6f back on her favoured soft going.
