Race Preview

HELLO JUMEIRAH was a really keen winner on her debut, looking good all the way to score at Kempton a month ago.

She was very smooth and comfortable in that run and she had more in the tank. Hello Jumeirah looks like a top prospect.

NIGHT BATTLE could be another big player in this as the expensive filly opened her account with a score.

Her winning debut came at Lingfield in a maiden last month.

It was a classy run and she is superbly bred.

Night Battle should be highly respected in this one and there has to be a lot more to come from the filly.

ABOVE THE CURVE, a daughter of American Pharaoh was third on her debut, showing decent promise.

She is another in this field who is tremendously bred, and she took form from that debut forward by scoring on her first run as a three-year-old.

That win was an impressive score at Leopardstown last month on a 10f trip, so this is well within her range.


Ones to watch: Above The Curve 6/4, Hello Jumeirah 6/1

NEW LONDON is undefeated from his two appearances so far, both of his scores happening at Newmarket.

The latest was three weeks ago to open the season.

New London took out another very promising one at the Craven meeting and has this distance in his scope.

A win in this and his stock for the Derby is probably going to go through the roof.

CHANGINGOFTHEGUARD didn’t get a win on the board during his juvenile season but immediately lit things up on his 3-year-old debut.

He took the win at Dundalk on his all-weather reappearance run a month ago.

This is a tougher race, especially with New London in the field, and further improvement may be needed for win purposes.

SAVVY VICTORY was a winner at Pontefract in a maiden a month ago. He probably needs a little more to get in this.

The case is the same for BERKSHIRE REBEL who has looked exposed on the last couple of outings, but the distance may help him get back on track.

Tip: NEW LONDON 4/11

Ones to watch: Changingoftheguard 4/1, Berkshire Rebel 14/1, Savvy Victory 14/1

AUDITOR may be worth considering for this contest, if she can overcome the technicality of a slightly rough draw.

Auditor was second at Sandown on his handicap debut twelve days ago and should be entitled to come on.

That was after ending the previous campaign on the up with a score as a juvenile at Windsor in a maiden. Not to be discounted.

EVER GIVEN has strong form from his juvenile campaign, taking a score in half of his eight starts.

One of those was a hot sales race at York. Ever Given has the advantage of a strong draw and should be right in this.

There was a fourth-place finish for him in a listed race when he last stepped into action in October.

Refreshed and recharged he commands respect.

POCKET THE ROCKET owned the season with a win at Pontefract and that was a big stylish win.

Under a penalty next time out at Newmarket, he ran well to take a fourth-place finish. Ryan Moore is back in the saddle and has to be worth a look.

GOLDEN WARRIOR has a couple of career wins as a 2-year-old, including one at Kempton in February.

He was below par on a clear off-day last time out. The Golden Warriors could bounce back with a nice draw for Wednesday.

Tip: AUDITOR 15/2

Ones to watch: Ever Given 7/2, Pocket The Rocket 9/2

LIVE IN THE DREAM brings winning form to the table and looks as if he could get back in this.

That latest win, adding to his debut score, was at Sandown 12 days ago and Live In The Dream dominated from the front.

Anything like a repeat performance could see him thrive once again, despite coming in with an 8lb rise.

SHAMLAAN is seeking a hattrick and will be under a 6lb penalty after scoring at Goodwood on the weekend.

He is thriving at the moment with four wins in his last five starts.

As long as this is not too quick of a turnaround, he should be right there.

RESILIENCE has enjoyed life with his new yard, picking up a couple of victories at Kempton.

He was fourth at Lingfield three weeks ago on his latest run, but there were excuses for him in that one.

Resilience doesn’t have the best draw, but he looks competitive at the moment.


Ones to watch: Shamlaan 9/2, Resilience 12/1

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 2m 1f

Race Preview

DOUGLAS TALKING has won three of his last four starts, the one exception was when took a tumble on his penultimate run.

There was a bit of fortune on his side when he scored at Ayr three weeks ago. Douglas Talking comes up 3lb and this is a tougher race.

JOKE DANCER is a former course and distance winner, taking that victory in March on his penultimate run.

His follow up at Carlisle was a forgettable effort, but he should be able to get in the mix back at Kelso.

TONTO’S SPIRIT is the final shortlisted selection for this record. His last run was three weeks ago at Carlisle.

He took a very credible third in that one on an eye-catching run.

The veteran could have a say in this with his yard being in very good form.


Ones to watch: Douglas Talking 7/4, Tonto’s Spirit 4/1

ROUGE VIF is a seasoned campaigner at much higher levels than this. Wednesday’s run represented a huge lowering of sights.

So he should be in it. He was last seen taking a fourth palace finish in the Celebration Chase at Sandown last month.

While he hasn’t quite looked at his best for a while, Rouge Vif boasts enough class to take this.

ERITAGE is a former course and distance winner and has two chase handicap wins on his record.

He makes his first run for three months after a third-place finish at Hereford on a much shorter trip in January.

The tongue tie is on for the first time and he’s a threat.

FALCO BLITZ looked strong and back on top of his game when he landed a win in a Kempton handicap chase in January.

Both following efforts were nowhere near that kind of level, pulling up over the hurdles at Kempton on his latest.

Falco Blitz is more capable than that and has a chance for a top yard.

Tip: ERITAGE 3/1

Ones to watch: Rouge Vif 7/4, Falco Blitz 3/1
