1:40 Thirsk -
Iain Jardine's Samantha James ran well on debut when finishing fourth in a pretty hot race at Thirsk. The form of the race has been franked. This daughter of an Australian stallion was quite fancied next start at Carlisle, again over the minimum trip. She finished fifth, beaten three lengths. The winner is heading to Royal Ascot and those in between look fair juveniles. Connections step up in distance to six furlong because she could never quite get to grips with the leaders last time out.
In addition, Evangeline Samos made her debut in the Marygate Listed race at York. This daughter of Foxwedge started slowly and finished down the field. This race will take a lot less winning and relatively fancied in the betting.
3:05 Royal Ascot - Coventry Stakes (Group 2)
A race to enjoy.
6:10 Brighton -
Richard Hannon's horses have been running well of late. Leoube ran disappointing at York on debut after missing the break and had no chance thereafter. This daughter of Kodiac was sent off a 25/1 next start at Windsor. She showed decent pace before tiring into fifth. A fair-looking juvenile. Interesting to see how she goes over six furlong.
6:30 Beverley -
Victory Commander is going for his second win although must defy the win penalty. Interesting to see how she fares with this extended trip. Horses stepping up in distance - after sprints - can be prove to pull.
