3 runners today at Lingfield, Chester and Ascot
Fleeting View starts us off in a maiden that could be a listed race. She is bred to need a trip and she will want further than this in time. She has done more than enough work but she certainly isn’t running up light at this stage and will come on a lot for the run.
Kazawi is at Chester for the 1m4f Apprentice Hcap. He ran a nice race on his comeback at Kempton and will need to step forward from that to win today. Chester is in our view a good galloping track as they don’t hang about from the start and often kick for home early enough. This should suit as he is a resolute galloper. Today he has to contend with the most unhelpful draw there is but hopefully he can get a sit, not to far from the rail. Harry Burns takes the ride, and is an apprentice who is based with us, although this is his first ride for us. Since he joined in January he has had 34 rides, 5 winners (15%), 5 seconds, 4 thirds and 3 fourths, which is good going for 7lbs claimer.
Polish makes his debut at Ascot in a very hot looking race. Corgi looks the type to go on and feature at Ascot and should take all the beating. The Newbury form is a lot better than the Newmarket maidens that week. Polish is a good-looking horse who is set to be a stayer but he moves well and has a future. He is a half-brother to Ply who worked wonders for us last year, but he took time to find his feet.
