Tonight's action: three runners who catch the eye across the meetings
Three Flat fixtures to keep us entertained this evening– on the all-weather at Kempton, on the turf at Bath and at Bellewstown in Ireland. Here are three horses to watch out for
Heart Of Grace
It is always good to have a plan in racing and owners Paul and Anthony Silvestro certainly have big plans for Heart Of Grace.
The Australian builders purchased the filly in Japan, shipped her to top trainer William Haggas and plan to mate her to a leading European stallion (in southern hemisphere time) and bring her back down under.
The daughter of Heart’s Cry made a perfect start when winning at Goodwood and connections felt there was plentyto work on that day. That makes her very interesting this evening.
Vale Of Kent
From the exalted surroundings of Royal Ascot to an evening meeting at Bath on a Wednesday night– that is the switch Vale Of Kent makes today.
Hefinished a respectable eighth of 30 in the Britannia Stakes last time out and brings in solid handicap form to this contest, where he takes on just one rival.
He also holds entries at Haydock on Friday and Chelmsford on Saturday, so he could be a busy boy.
The firm underfoot conditions at Bath have no doubt contributed to the lack of opponents but Kawasir shouldnot be dismissed– his US breeding makes him potentially dangerous on the ground.
Toffee Tartonce ran in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot (well beaten) and was last seen being pulled up in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse when sent off at 100-1.
That was on November 2, 2014 and Toffee Tart has not been sighted since. However, as a nine-year-old she is returning to the Flat, 1,338 days since she last ran and 1,522 since her last appearance on the level.
It will be interesting to see whether the patience pays off when she lines up in themile 0-65 handicap, although today is unlikely to be the day.
