SANDOWN PARK

Race 1 No5 RUN TO FREEDOM (Nap)
Trainer: Henry Candy – Jockey: David Probert

RUN TO FREEDOM could be the star turn of the Candy operation this year. He skipped an opportunity owing to the soft ground last week but now finds himself in a more enticing situation. He’s done very well through the spring and could have been let in lightly for this first run in a handicap.

Race 4 No1 TRAIS FLUORS
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Silvestre De Sousa

Veteran TRAIS FLUORS was Group class when trained in France, lost his way in Ireland but is now ready to post a first success in Britain. He showed a clear sign of being ready to deliver when fourth at Nottingham and is expected to enjoy the stiff finish today.

YORK

Race 4 No17 GENERAL SAGO (Each Way)
Trainer: David O’Meara – Jockey: Cam Hardie

As a maiden without much experience, GENERAL SAGO can be seen as vulnerable in a competitive handicap like this. However, he’s run into some decent types and with his habit of getting into the money could earn at a big double-figure price.

Race 6 No9 GIVE IT SOME TEDDY (Each Way)
Trainer: Tim Easterby – Jockey: Duran Fentiman

GIVE IT SOME TEDDY hasn’t had much to shout about so far this season but is too well handicapped to be happily left alone. The seven-year-old didn’t cut the mustard during a short period with another trainer but can bounce back from what was an admittedly disappointing effort at Beverley last time.

CHESTER

Race 2 No14 POWERALLIED (Each Way)
Trainer: Richard Fahey – Jockey: Paddy Mathers

POWERALLIED is another who may appear to have lost his mojo, but back at his favourite track for the first time, this year can raise his game. All six of his Chester successes have been gained in the summer and granted luck in running he could put behind him three disappointing efforts.

Race 6 No3 MAORI KNIGHT (Nap)
Trainer: Richard Hughes – Jockey: Jamie Spencer

From a plum draw, MAORI KNIGHT has strong claims to back up a recent victory at Chelmsford. While he’s shown his best form on that Polytrack circuit, he can now prove he’s effective on turf.

BATH

Race 1 No1 DECORA
Trainer: Sheena West – Jockey: T Whelan

The diminutive DECORA returned to the Flat with a clear cut triumph at Salisbury that should have done her confidence the power of good. After that first career success, and first for her trainer, she is in a position to build.

Race 5 No3 MICHAELS CHOICE (Nap)
Trainer: Willie Jarvis – Jockey: Hollie Doyle

Jarvis is having a good time of it with his Phantom House string and MICHAELS CHOICE makes plenty of appeal following an eye-taking run at Windsor that should have blown away any cobwebs and brought the gelding nicely to his peak.

WORCESTER

Race 5 No3 CASTEL GANDOLFO (Nap)
Trainer: Fergal O’Brien – Jockey: Paddy Brennan

This is a much more competitive heat than the one CASTEL GANDOLFO took out at Fakenham but that should have done wonders for his confidence. This strong traveller can swoop to conquer at the business end.

Race 6 No8 ULTIMATE GETAWAY
Trainer: Fergal O’Brien – Jockey: Paddy Brennan

ULTIMATE GETAWAY possibly needed his race when fourth at Stratford, as it followed on from an eight month absence. While he hasn’t looked as good over jumps as he was in bumpers, that can change granted the continuing good form of his stable.

Race 7 No1 KILBREW BOY (Each Way)
Trainer: Ben Case – Jockey: Mr Charlie Case

Front runner KILBREW BOY demonstrated that he’s getting back in the groove with an earning run on his third outing of the year at Ludlow. If that’s brought him forward he could prove hard to catch in an open race in which Krujers Girl and Exitas are also worth putting into your exotics.
