1.55pm Goodwood - Potapova
This looks like a golden opportunity for POTAPOVA to get back in the winners enclosure. Richard Kingscote and Sir Michael Stoute combine with the 5-year-old who was a Group 3 winner last term.
On the figures she has a fair bit in hand on this occasion, and providing she is fully wound up on her seasonal reappearance, she may just have too much class for her rivals dropping down into Listed company. The yard have been in fine fettle lately and she can get the job done here en route to bigger things this summer.
3.05pm Goodwood - Maghlaak
Lightly-raced 4-year-old MAGHLAAK didn’t make it to the track as a juvenile, but is progressing nicely and can have a fruitful campaign. He shaped with promise when third at Kempton on debut last August (form has worked out well) and subsequently has notched up back to back wins.
The latter of those coming over course and distance, where he showed real battling qualities for one so inexperienced, knuckling down inside the closing stages to fend off all-comers despite having to do the donkey work in a five runner race. Based on that performance, a bit of cut in the ground shouldn’t be a problem, and he can take his form to new levels now foraying into Handicap company.
Off the mark of 86 he has the propensity to be well treated and connections could be eyeing up Royal Ascot on the back of a strong performance here.
4.00pm Newmarket - Twilight Calls
Henry Candy and Ryan Moore team up with TWILIGHT CALLS who can fend off all comers in the Group 3 Palace House Stakes over 5f. The 5-year-old is a previous winner over course and distance, and so should enjoy returning to this venue.
Relatively lightly-raced, he could still have more to offer for an in-form yard who have been operating at around a 30% strike-rate for the last fortnight. Some people may be put-off by the gelding trying to defy a 326-day absence, but that is a positive as far as his profile is concerned.
He’s won first-time out for the last two seasons, so catching him fresh is probably the time for him to bring his best stuff to the table. He hasn’t been seen since coming second to Nature Strip in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at last year’s Royal Ascot meeting. A reproduction of that effort would see him tough to beat down in class for this encounter.
4.25pm Uttoxeter - Nestor Park (Each Way)
This is a cracking 3m Handicap Chase which can go the way of the Ben Pauling trained NESTOR PARK (EW). The 10-year-old has sometimes flattered to deceive, but when he puts his best foot forward he is more than capable of making his presence felt.
He ran a race full of encouragement when runner-up at Chepstow last month. Three miles around Uttoxeter should be spot on for him and he can get involved for each-way players with Luca Morgan in the saddle.
Caribean Boy bounced back to form at Cheltenham recently and if in the same form could easily follow up, despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
3.40pm Newmarket - Dream Of Love
DREAM OF LOVE was a winner at this track on her debut, she was third when looking in need of the experience on her following start, but would have done her the world of good in regards to gaining trackcraft at the headquarters of Flat racing which will hold her in good stead for this.
She was last seen producing a fast-finishing second at Meydan where the combination of 7f and Soft ground would have played against her. William Buick should be taking the ride on the filly for the Charlie Appleby team, and she looks to have very solid claims in this exciting renewal.
