Born To Surprise looking to get back on track
YARMOUTH has again avoided the worst of the weather, although overnight showers have left the going as soft, good to soft in places for this afternoon's meeting.
The feature class 3 handicap at 4.10pm has attracted a healthy field of 14, with one time Guineas hope Born To Surprise looking to get back to winning ways after disappointing on his last two starts at a much higher levels.
An impressive winner of a Doncaster maiden on his seasonal debut, he then missed the break when well beaten in the Craven Stakes and finished seventh in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot last time.
They also go to post at Catterick and Lingfield in Britain on Wednesday afternoon, while the action comes from Wexford in Ireland.
The Willie Mullins-trained Raptor will bid for back-to-back chase wins in Wexford's Audrey McGrath Memorial Chase at 3.45pm, after an impressive win at Punchestown in May.
Assessing his chances of following up, Mullins said: "He'll handle the trip and the ground and if he acts on the sharper course - his two chase wins were at Punchestown which is a more galloping track - then he should run a big race."
