Sandown and Yarmouth with chances
Merlin’s Magic makes his second start in a hot race full of a well bred newcomers. He ran well for ¾ of his race on debut at Salisbury before running very green in the dip. The course today will be more to his liking and he will obviously know more than last time.
Antagonist ran too fresh on his first start of the year at Nottingham and we hope that he can be more relaxed today. He is very well bred and has ability, and is from a family we know well, being a half brother to Almodovar and from the family of Tante Rose.
L’Explora makes her second start of the year at Yarmouth in a race that lacks depth. Global Rose has similar form to her, but we assume she may not be at her best/not run, after a long round trip to Bath yesterday in this heat to be second, but you never know.
