Freddie Tylicki heads to Wolverhampton tomorrow evening hoping to complete a hat-trick of wins on North Yorkshire gelding Dandarrell, one of two fancied runners on the card for Norton trainer Julie Camacho.
Dandarrell scored at Newcastle with Malton-based Tylicki aboard and the same combination followed up here at the beginning of the month.
The five-year-old has been raised 4lb for that success, which does not look overly hard. He has every chance of obliging again in the £32 Bonus At 32Red.com Handicap and is awarded the nap vote.
Camacho also has a good chance with My Single Malt in the second division of the 32Red Casino Handicap.
The four-year-old has been running well lately, filling the frame on his last visits to this course. Graham Lee has the task of trying to persuade the four-year-old to put his head in front when it matters.
Yeomanoftheguard is an interesting runner in division one of the 32Red Casino Handicap.
Richard Fahey’s gelding is a tricky customer, as he confirmed when getting rid of his jockey on this course seven weeks ago and galloping loose before making all the running and winning well.
He is now into handicap company for the first time and looks to be on a favourable mark. This longer distance should suit him, but his chances depend on how he behaves. Tony Hamilton will be in the saddle.
Fahey also has a fighting chance with Docs Legacy in the 32Red Handicap.
The three-year-old has produced creditable handicap performances on his last two outings, at Redcar and York. He was a winner on this course last October on his only previous outing on an artificial surface and consequently deserves attention.
Also worth noting are Reginald Claude (4.10), a well-backed winner here last week, and the hat-trick seeking Mutual Regard (5.10), who escapes a penalty for his latest success.
At Market Rasen today, Alan King could be the trainer to follow. He has good prospects of completing a treble with Uxizandre, Monturgeon and Midnight Sail.
Uxizandre makes his British debut in the Direct 365 Novices’ Hurdle. Runner-up in his only outing in France earlier this year, the four-year-old must have been showing a fair amount of ability at King’s powerful Barbury Castle yard, given the fact that stable-jockey Robert Thornton has chosen to ride him instead of stable-mate The Mumper in the same race.
Monturgeon runs in the Direct 365 Beginners’ Chase and will be having his first run over fences.
A fair hurdler, with a rating nudging 120, he looks to have plenty going for him as he switches to the major obstacles and he is sure to have been well schooled in readiness for this.
Midnight Sail knows plenty about jumping fences and the nine-year-old turns out in the Direct 365 Handicap Chase.
He makes plenty of appeal after finishing a close-up second on his recent reappearance at Stratford, which was his first outing since the spring.
In the concluding Direct 365 Lady Amateur Riders’ Handicap Hurdle, Lean Burn promises to be hard to beat.
