Multiple runners with some nice chances
At Doncaster Herculean makes his 3rd start of the year. It hasn’t been a great year for big horses who don’t want fast ground, so we have had to be very patient. He will come on for today but it will be good to get him out before the winter, as it would be a long wait until next April. He remains a lovely horse who we hope can make an impact.
At Newbury Doubly Beautiful makes his first start. He is from a good and speedy family who have had plenty of success. As you would expect at Newbury there is a full field and some decent horses for him to compete with. Hopefully he shows up well.
Qarasu is a half brother to Aspetar. He is scopey horse who is a lot more on the leg than his half-brother. He is one for the next year and won’t know as much as some of those who have raced, but is one with potential.
Skyman is a very good-looking horse who came from book 3 at Tattersalls. The favourite in his race is very talented and they all have him to beat.
Aspetar ran a blinder last time out from a bad draw. He was taken back, which is never easy at Ayr and ran on very well. He will be more suited to the flat track at Newbury and should stay the trip well. Elegiac won very well last time and gets an allowance from us but the race may not be run to suit him as much as it was last time.
At Kempton Nawar was unlucky to bump into one last time. He had the race won but he got run down by a flyer who has since won. He must have a good chance tonight.
Basilisk is a nice big horse, who was a very late foal. He will come on for the race tonight but hope he will show some promise.
Midport runs in the same race after he got loose in the paddock last week at Nottingham. Hopefully he will be on better behaviour tonight. He moves well on the polytrack at home and could run a nice race.
True Destiny has been a disappointing horse and it would be nice to see some encouragement.
