Three interesting runners to note at Windsor and Wolverhampton
The first day of the Galway festivities will keep punters entertained, but there's also a double helping of Flat action in Britain courtesy of Windsor and Wolverhampton. Here are three runners it could be worth noting.
This six-year-old has been running well lately, and his turn may not be far away.
His last win came off a mark of 86, and he competes tonight off 82. He was a good fourth over this evening's course and distance three starts back, and the booking of Josephine Gordon looks a positive move in this Silk Series race which pits professional and amateur female riders against each other.
Now seven, Sbraase is on a losing record stretching back to March 2015, but perhaps a return to Wolverhampton could change his fortunes.
He has a fine record at the track, with three wins, three seconds and three thirds from 12 previous starts, and is now with Irish trainer Gavin Cromwell, who has a 25 per cent strike-rate at the track (one from four) in the last five seasons.
Despite taking a fierce hold early on over course and distance last time out, Blistering Bob was still in there pitching at the end, going down by half a length when fourth.
If he settles better this time, he may prove his opening handicap mark of 69 is workable.
