POWER SEEKER – 2:10 Salisbury RUK
Unfortunately the horse drawn next to him in the stalls at Newbury (ironically it was Well Done Fox who is once again drawn next to him today) got upset and caused a chain reaction which meant he too got very unsettled and resulted in him running far too free in the early stages. It wasn’t the ideal start to his career and the main aim is to ensure he has a much better experience today. However, he is one of our sharper two-year-olds and a good show would not surprise.
RAGSTONE VIEW – 5:25 Salisbury RUK
A winner over 5f for Richard Hughes in July last season, he missed the break and got too far behind on his debut for the yard at Bath three weeks ago. He seems to have come on for the run at home and we will learn more about him this afternoon, although it is a shame the race did not divide as eighteen horses are declared in a competitive event.
RIO SANTOS – 6:00 Salisbury RUK
Best effort yet when only beaten half a length by Spot Lite when third at Bath last week. He has a light weight with the three-year-old allowance and Thore Hammer-Hansen rode him last time (based with Richard Hannon and could be a 7lb claimer to follow) so plenty in his favour and he should not be too far away.
HAWRIDGE FLYER – 6:55 Newmarket RUK
Showed promise in his maidens on soft ground before getting off the mark at 2/5 on heavy ground at Ffos Las for another yard. Finished third on his stable debut at Windsor, faring best of those up with the pace and showed he could cope with good ground. We expect him to improve for that first run and as long as he handles the quicker ground, a bold show would not surprise.
