We kick things off this weekend with Alwajd in the fillies’ maiden (1.15pm) at Newmarket. She was very green on debut at Salisbury, but she should have learnt plenty from that and we’d be hopeful she can take a step forward here. She’s got a lovely attitude and should be a nice one for next season.
Bint Elmalek makes her debut in the fillies’ maiden (4.15pm). She’s a nice type and is one to look forward to for next season. She’s done it nicely enough at home and should run a nice race, but she’ll definitely improve on the back of the experience.
The Attorney has been running really well and consistently for a good while now. He goes in the seven-furlong handicap (5.24pm) and should go pretty well again in conditions that will suit and from a nice draw in seven.
Over at Chester, we run Point Lynas in the seven-furlong novice stakes (2.00pm). He’s another who has been very consistent recently and I think at Salisbury last time he just bumped into one. A repeat of that run should see him involved again.
Just the one for us at Haydock in the form of Afaak in the mile handicap (2.05pm). There are only seven runners, but it looks a pretty competitive affair on paper with all of them closely matched on ratings. Our lad is in good form at home, and I think the track will suit, so I’d be hopeful he might run a bit better than his odds suggest.
May Sonic looks to have the best chance of our three at Chelmsford. He runs in the six-furlong conditions stakes (7.00pm) and it looks a straight match between him and the Simon & Ed Crisford runner. He goes well over this course and distance, so we’re hopeful he’ll put in another good performance again.
I’m looking forward to running Chepchik on Sunday at Ffos Las in the novice stakes (5.50pm). She followed up a pleasing debut at Newbury by being only just touched off at Epsom last time and she should build on those runs here. We’ve got Tom Marquand on board and with any luck she’ll be there at the business end.
