Three runners to look out for at Windsor, Roscommon and Newcastle
There is plenty to keep you entertained this evening with three meetings across Britain and Ireland. It is an early start at Windsor for the course's twilight meeting, with the first of eight races off at 3.55, while Roscommon starts ten minutes later and the all-weather action at Newcastle begins at 5.20.
Dirty Rascal deserves to get his head in front following four runner-up finishes.
The juvenile has finished second to smart types in Dunkerron, Marhaba Milliar, Watan and Flashcard and will be unlucky to bump into a rival of similar calibre this evening.
A wide draw in stall 11 slightly tempers enthusiasm, but there is no doubt Richard Hannon's Dirty Rascal brings the best form into this 6f novice stakes.
This daughter of Bated Breath, trained by Ger Lyons, raced with plenty of promise on her debut when a staying-on third at the Curragh in July and has strong claims of winning on her second start.
Owned by Khalid Abdullah, Ancestral is a half-sister to Yorkshire Oaks winner Quiff and should be suited by this step up to 1m2f on the evidence of her first start.
She deserves her position at the head of the market and could be a smart prospect.
Brian Ellison’s sprinter returned from an eight-month break with a very promising second over six furlongs here in July.
The three-year-old won at Wolverhampton on his final juvenile start and his encouragingcomeback runsuggests he will strike again.
Off the same mark of 63, it would be surprising if Skyva does not go close with Kieran Schofield once again claiming a valuable 7lb.
