NORTH YORKSHIRE apprentices are fancied to come to the fore at Southwell tomorrow.

Jamie Moriarty, who is attached to Richard Fahey's Malton yard, is expected to take first blood at the meeting aboard Beldon Hill, trained by his boss, while Andrew Mullen can follow suit on behalf of his Hambleton guv'nor Kevin Ryan aboard nap selection Louisade half an hour later.

Beldon Hill, who lines-up in the Pontin's Family Holidays Apprentice Handicap, has good prospects of hitting the target if he can reproduce his running at Wolverhampton last week when he was just touched off by Foursquare Flyer.

Running over the same distance of a mile and a half tomorrow, Beldon Hill is selected to go one better in the hands of Moriarty, who joined Fahey last autumn after riding some 30 winners in Ireland.

Louisade deserves to capture the Pontin's Book Early Handicap (division one) over a mile after his short-head defeat by Paso Doble over this course and distance 12 days ago.

Previously a runner-up at Kempton, Louisade can get back on top this time and get Mullen back in the winning groove after a recent work-riding spell in the US.

Paso Doble, Louisade's recent conqueror, also takes his chance tomorrow and runs in the second division of the same race.

Although coming into battle on the back of a recent defeat, Paso Doble remains in good heart and Dean Ivory's gelding will have the assistance of James Millman, another smart apprentice with excellent prospects on this card.

Magic Glade makes plenty of appeal in the Handicap.

A good third to Efistorm here recently, Magic Glade can be expected to turn the tables tomorrow, bearing in mind he meets that winner on markedly more favourable terms and that he will surely have benefited from his latest start, which was his first for more than ten weeks.

David Nicholls and his jockey son Adrian can land the Pontin's Handicap with Pieter Brueghel, who was beaten only half a length over five furlongs here last time, and now steps up to six furlongs which will arguably suit him better.

At Sedgefield, Len Lungo can continue his good run of form with Cloudmor in the Touchline Event Management Handicap Chase.

The six-year-old has won his last two starts and is developing a progressive profile. There may be more to come from him.

Gordon Richards is another trainer going well at present. The Greystoke handler has every chance of adding to his score with Gunadoir in the Mares' Only Novices' Hurdle.
