1.40pm Cartmel - Artiste D’Ainay

Daryl Jacob and Stuart Crawford team up with the 5-year-old ARTISTE D’AINAY who looks to have the tools needed to get in the winners enclosure for the first time.

He has been running consistently well in defeat so far over hurdles, arriving here on the back of finishing third at Downpatrick three weeks ago. On that occasion, and on penultimate start at Sedgefield he gave the distinct impression that he would welcome a much greater examination of stamina, so this step in distance to 2m6f should really suit (for all that it is Cartmel).

There is plenty of stamina in the family, so I think this extra distance can bring about the improvement required to land the spoils here.

2.25pm Haydock - Covey

Frankie Dettori has been firing in the winners in his final season as a jockey, and he has every opportunity of another success with the John and Thady Gosden trained COVEY. The son of Frankel arrives on a hat-trick, and won a minor event at Newcastle last time out in a common canter.

Going into handicap company for the first time, he could easily take his form to new levels, and looks as though this step up to 1m should suit. It would be far from the biggest shock in the world if he were to win this and then throw himself in the mix for a hot contest at Royal Ascot.

2.30pm Curragh - Art Power

For whatever reason, ART POWER enjoys getting on the boat to Ireland, and this striking-looking 6-year-old can maintain his unblemished record in the Emerald Isle.

Tim Easterby’s charge has an unblemished record of three wins from three visits to Ireland - including a perfect record of two from two over this specific course and distance. His seasonal reappearance run at York when finishing down the field would have been needed, and should strip much fitter for that outing. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him bounce back to winning ways with the excellent Oisin Murphy in the saddle.

2.40pm York - Alligator Alley (Each Way)

ALLIGATOR ALLEY (EW) can be a little bit of a hostage to fortune, but a strongly run 5f on the Knavesmire really suits this 6-year-old. He didn’t get the rub of the green when finishing 6th over C&D 9 days ago - he was trapped behind a wall of horses with a furlong to go, and probably did well to finish sixth in the circumstances.

He is starting to look well treated, and can easily get in the shake-up here from an each-way point of view with underfoot conditions in his favour. Danny Tudhope takes the ride for the David O’Meara yard and a big run could easily be on the cards.

3.55pm Uttoxeter (Sunday) - Tea Clipper (Each Way)

Tom Lacey trains the 8-year-old TEA CLIPPER (EW), who has solid claims of defying top weight in this exciting encounter. The gelding simply didn’t stay an extended 3m4f on tacky ground at Sandown when last seen and this looks a much more feasible opportunity. Quick underfoot ground conditions are crucial to him, and he should get his desired ground on this occasion.

Eased to a mark of 142 he is starting to look fairly treated - he is now 3lb lower than when placed in the Ultima Handicap Chase at last year’s Cheltenham Festival. If he can put his best foot forward here, he shouldn’t be too far away with Stan Sheppard in the plate.
