Tonight's action: three runners who catch the eye at Killarney and Salisbury

Tonight's action includes a Listed race at Salisbury
1 of 1

Following afternoon racing at York, Ffos Las and Newmarket, five evening meetingsinclude Goodwood, Chelmsford and Salisbury, which stages a Listed race for two-year-olds. The Irish action comes from Killarney and Kilbeggan; here are three to follow across the five meetings

5.55 Killarney

With the likes of subsequent Ribblesdale winner Magic Wand and Belmont Oaks winner Athena behind her in a Leopardstown maiden in April, you could be forgiven for being surprised Samasthiti has yet to win.

She bumped into the high class Flattering on her second start of the campaign and perhaps the ground was a bit too fast when she was pitched in at the deep end in a Naas Listed contest.

She has been given time to mature by new trainer John Oxx since though, and as a daughter of Camelot the extra furlong should suit in a winnable Killarney maiden.

6.55 Salisbury
Arctic Sound

Mark Johnston has won the lasted two renewals of the Stonehenge Stakes and he looks to have another live chance this evening in Arctic Sound.

The son of Poet's Voice has been progressing with each startand holds the reopposing Fox Tal on their Sandown run in July. He steps up to a mile for the first time tonight which looks sure to suit based on the way he has been finishing out his races.

After putting up his best performance yet when running out a ready winnerof a Beverley novice by seven lengths, he could prove tough to catch with the excellent Franny Norton doing the steering in a race the Middleham team clearly like to target.

8.00 Killarney

StephenRyan's gelding returns to the scene of his second to the well-handicapped Pass The Ballwith good claims. Pass The Ball was able to supplement that victory by winning in fine style off a 9lb higher mark on his next start and Messie could still be well handicapped off just 3lb higer.

With the majority of the field badly out of form, this handicap hurdle should not take too much winninganda mark of 93 should be withinthe eight-year-old'scompass.

Still lightly raced for his age, Messie encounters similar conditions to those in which he faced Pass The Ball last month at Killarney, and it would be disappointing if he didn't go close tonight.
