Yellowhammer makes her seasonal debut and Petitioner hits the turf.

 

Petitioner

Petitioner won his maiden well at Kempton, in what was quite a deep race as it turns out, with a few horses improving from in behind him. He loves the all weather surface but since he has started to strengthen he appears to be handling the grass better at home. In opposition tonight is Pouvoir Magique who could be anything and The Grand Visir who may have more to come. He seems in good shape but we are all in the hands of the handicapper and I hope we go well.

 

 

Yellowhammer

 

Yellowhammer is a lovely filly who won very well at Newmarket last year in a 7f maiden. She may in time need a mile, but this is a nice place to start her off. She may be a bit rusty having been off for so long, but hopefully she can put up a bold showing.
