On Friday we returned to action with PIAZON at York. He chased the leaders and was ridden along well over one furlong out. He gradually weakened entering the final furlong. He is entered in the Horses in Training sales at the end of the month.
Today we started to day off at Newmarket with GALIZZI. He chased the leaders and was kept handy. He could find no extra when under pressure two furlongs out and weakened. It was a disappointing effort and maybe he is just showing the effect of a long season. Later on the card WHITE VIN JAN who has been running well in nurseries stood no chance of beating the useful winner Parsley in this two runner event. The winner looks a nice individual and is sure to keep progressing. WHITE VIN JAN is in the Horses in Training Sales and hopefully she will catch someone’s eye. We have just seen a tame effort from TARANDO who raced prominently early on. She chased the leaders and was soon ridden, weakening inside the final furlong. Later on the card ROCK OF LEON takes his chance. He has been in good order and hopefully we have finally found a winnable opportunity for him.
On Monday we have declared MISSISSIPPI QUEEN at Windsor. She needs her third run to get a handicap mark and hopefully she can be competitive when she finds her grade. Later on the card RAVEN RIDGE is hoping to finally get a bracket for the season. He certainly deserves a change of fortune and hopefully he will be able to head into the Horses in Training Sales on the back of a win. At Compiegne GRACELAND is looking to get her first career win under her belt. She goes into the race on the back of her second at Lingfield and appears in good form.
On Tuesday we have declared SONAR at Leicester. He has conditions in his favour and hopefully he will be able to give a good account of himself. Later on the card PENANG PAPARAJAH makes his racecourse debut. He heads into the race on the back of his half brother’s impressive sale at Tattersalls last week and hopefully he will show some encouraging signs on this his racecourse debut. Our last runner at the meeting was SALTWATER CREEK who was unlucky on her last start. Hopefully things will go right for her here and she will run well. At Newcastle SAMPERA is looking to go one better than her Haydock run. She looks in good form and it would be great to see her go one better. At Wolverhampton BY JUPITER is looking to get her first career win under her belt. She should be suited by the conditions of the race and hopefully we have finally found a winnable opportunity for her.
