With an exciting few days of racing ahead of us with meetings at York, Newmarket and feature at Newbury, we have summarised some of our Sirecam graduates that will be running, as well as a few picks from our sponsored stables to keep an eye on.
To kick off the afternoon today, the Hannon trained DESERT FORCE (Equiano) runs in the 3.10pm today at Newbury, he has looked promising as a two and three year old, with only a couple of starts this season. He is later followed by the very classy MANJAAM (Tamayuz) in the 4.50pm; he is looking to make it a hat trick here for the in form Dunlop team.
Another horse looking to make it three wins back to back this season, this time from the Varian stable is BARSANTI (Champs Elysees). He has been seriously progressive and looks to be a decent contender in the 4.40pm at York later today.
Tomorrow’s Sirecam graduate highlight will be headed by ENDLESS DRAMA (Lope De Vega) who runs in the big one at Newbury (Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes Gr 1) at 3.55pm. He won first time out, his only run as a 2yo and last season ran three seconds, narrowly missing out on Group 1 glory, only to the mighty GLENEAGLES by less than a length. This will be his first start this season as a 4yo for trainer Ger Lyons.
We also have a lovely gelding SHAHBAR (Champs Elysees) running in the 4.30pm at Newbury for Marco Botti. He is still relatively lightly raced; this time round should test his ability.
SPONSORED STABLE ENTRIES
The on fire trainer Hugo Palmer enters STRONG STEPS (Aqlaam) at Newbury in the 5.35 on Saturday for raceday sponsors Al Shaqab.
We will also see a number of entries from Brian Meehan who begins his charge at Newbury today in the 3.45pm Maiden Stakes with gelding SMUGGLER’S MOON (Danehill Dancer). The three year old is relatively unexposed with only one start to date.
Following up for the Manton based trainer is the Dalakhani colt RIDE THE LIGHTNING in the 4.50pm this afternoon at Newbury. Tomorrow will see SPARK PLUG (Dylan Thomas) hit the track for the first time as a five year old in the 5.35pm also at Newbury.
Meehan also has two runners heading to Newmarket tomorrow for the Handicap races (1.50pm and 4.10pm) CARNIVAL KING (Arcano) and TAKE THE HELM (Monsieur Bond) running respectively.
Good luck to all connections
