2:30 Doncaster – Learn By Heart (Evs)
My NAP for the day, and I do think these odds are a steal! He’s out of a Group Two winner and related to related to good horses Call To Mind and Recorder. On debut he ran very well when not beaten too far when third at Haydock. The form of that race was reasonably strong, and I’m expecting him to break his maiden with Ryan Moore on board.
5:30 Doncaster – Twilight Spirit (16/1) ew
A horse I have been following for a while is Twilight Spirit, who I do feel will be winning sprints within time. She’s been an expensive horse to follow, with no wins in four runs. Her breeding is exceptional, being related to Twilght Son and Music Master. She could only finish seventh on her seasonal bow in May, but I do think she can run a big race at a big price.
Happily is a full sister to dual Guineas winner and five time Group One winner Gleneagles
5:45 Curragh – Happily (11/8)
A beautifully bred filly from Ballydoyle who looks to be one to keep an eye on throughout the season. She’s a full sister to the brilliant Gleneagles and Marvellous, both Guineas winners, and already has racecourse experience. She finished seventh at the Curragh, in a race won by recent Chesham winner September. She was very green in the early stages, but made up a lot of ground late on. She’ll be much better for that effort, and if she’s showing her potential should be up to winning a maiden.
6:10 Chester – Right Action (4/1)
A nice prospect for Richard Fahey who could be much better than his mark of 76 suggests. He won well at Carlisle on his penultimate start, before going very close at Wetherby on soft ground last time out. He’s only been raised 2lb for that head defeat, and should have a bold chance once again.
7:35 Newcastle – Marine One (11/4)
This son of Frankel has ran well on three occasions, and I do feel can strike on the fourth time of asking. He’s improved from each run and was last seen finishing third at Kempton, against some nice prospects. This race doesn’t look as strong, and I’m expecting a bold effort from David Simcock’s well-bred colt.
