Nick Shiambouros hopes to start the new week with a couple of winners from Leicester and Ayr...

"He is the clear form choice and will appreciate the better ground"

Back Sarstedt in the 12:15 at Leicester

12:15 Leicester - Sarstedt

Sarstedt should get off the mark in this interesting novice stakes.

This Sixties Icon colt finished down the field behind Shrewd Approach in a handicap at Epsom earlier this month. He made some progress two furlongs from home, but began to labour in the testing conditions and was rightly eased. He has some decent form in the book, including an excellent second to Regimented at Lingfield. He is the clear form choice and will appreciate the better ground. At present he is trading at 4.67/2 on the exchange.

Debutant Red Cymbal heads the market at 3.211/5 on the exchange. This Cheveley homebred comes from a good family and has plenty of speed in his pedigree. He is the main danger.


14:05 Ayr - Better Getalong

Better Getalong should go very close in this novices' hurdle.

This gelding won a couple of bumpers last season, and was not disgraced behind Fayonagh at the Cheltenham Festival. He should be ready to do himself justice on his hurdles debut, and is the horse to beat. At present he is trading at 2.166/5 on the exchange.

Saint Freule looks back-to lay material. He set a scorching pace at Hexham last time out, before folding his tent on the approach to the final flight. Front running appears to be his game, but looks vulnerable even over this shorter trip. At present he is trading at 4.03/1 on the exchange.
