Tenth, Newcastle, Saturday
I'm convinced Cowboy Soldier is capable of winning a big sprint handicap this season.
As a hold-up performer, he often needs plenty of luck in running, and he had no such joy in the Gosforth Park Cup Handicap at Newcastle on Saturday. He was repeatedly denied a clear run, even when switched towards the stands' side, and finished full of energy.
I think he'll pop up at a decent price when he gets a strong pace to aim at, possibly on the all-weather, where he has won two of his five races and achieved the highest Racing Post Rating of his career (98).
Fifth, Hamilton, Sunday
While most eyes were on Group action at the Curragh and the main British racing from Newmarket and Windsor, I was drawn to this run at Hamilton.
Engles Rock was having only her second start since joining Lucinda Russell from Ireland. She travelled well before having nowhere to go two furlongs out, and once finding a gap the race was over.
The four-year-old Excelebration filly wasn't given a hard time once her chance had gone and looks capable of better, especially as she's now 3lb below her last winning mark. The drop to a mile could prove a good move.
Fifth, Newcastle, Saturday
After winning four times as a two-year-old, Concierge came into his second season last year with an official rating of 99 and a prosperous future, but that's not how it has worked out.
However, the four-year-old, who joined David Loughnane over the winter, finally struck at Wolverhampton in February, 430 days after his last success, off a mark of 85 and this latest effort suggests he could still be well handicapped.
Everything went wrong as he was left at the stalls and short of room several times after being forced wide, but he picked up well in the closing stages to finish an eyecatching fifth.
Third, Curragh, Saturday
While Santiago was promoted to St Leger favouritism after winning the Irish Derby, I thought the one to shape best with the Doncaster Classic in mind was Dawn Patrol.
Considering he came into the race a maiden, the son of Galileo was a short enough price at 10-1, but the promise in his previous runs showed why punters felt he had a good chance.
He was dropped out by Ronan Whelan but picked up well when the pace increased. Short for room turning for home, Whelan was forced to take a pull before switching towards the stands' side, where he finished the fastest of the field in third.
It looked like he'd relish an extra furlong or two, so it might be worth taking the 10-1 for the St Leger.
