Tonight's racing: three horses to look out for this evening
Thoughts may be turning to Royal Ascot, which beginson Tuesday, but there are still interesting evening meetings at Nottingham and Windsor on Monday to decipher. These three horses could perhaps bolster the Royal Ascot betting bank...
With the Ruth Carr stable going well, and Silvestre de Sousa riding better than anyone in the country, the eye is instantly drawn to Dyllan, who finished last season on the up and could have more to offer as a four-year-old.
Dyllan produced arguably his best effort yet when narrowly beaten over seven furlongs at Epsom on his final start last year, but he had previously shown himself to be effective over the minimum distance –including when winning at Redcar –so this drop back to five furlongs is not a concern.
Indigo Princess(8.00 Nottingham)
Just 2lb higher than when successful over course and distance on her penultimate start, Indigo Princess holds rock-solid claims under apprentice Raymond Dawson, who seems to be excellent value for his 7lb allowance.
Indigo Princess was by no means disgraced at Leicester last time, beaten by an in-form rival who subsequently ran well off a higher mark, and she is able to race under optimum conditions in what appears a modest contest.
Hughie Morrison's three-year-old failed to make an impact in maidens but he showed much more on his handicap debut at Leicester, shaping in the style of a horse capable of striking from this mark of 64.
This race looks weaker than the Leicester contest and, if improving as expected, he should take a good deal of beating under top jockey Richard Kingscote, who is an eyecatching booking.
