Swagger can strut his stuff at Thirsk

1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Mitchum Swagger (3.20 Thirsk, nap)

Appeared to be returning to his best when fourth in a Group 3 at Haydock last time and looks to have been found the right opportunity to return to winning ways. David Lanigan's stable star has since worked well on the Peat Moss. 

15.20 Thirsk

Lambourn: James Burn

Red Roman (4.10 Goodwood, nap)

A mark of 85 looks workable for this well-regarded juvenile who should be suited by dropping back to 6f, while connections are hopeful he will handle the testing conditions.

North: Colin Russell

Withernsea (3.00 Goodwood, nap)

Fine third over 7f at Ascot last Saturday and, with today's testing going ideal, he is fancied to fare even better .

West Country: Tim Mitchell

Seafarer (7.10 Bath, nap)

Marcus Tregoning's three-year-old is creeping up the weights after two solid efforts, but he is fancied to gain a deserved success.

19.10 Bath

2.00 Cesare Et Rosalie, 2.35 Rebel Rebellion.
Bath 6.35 Coronation Cottage, 7.40 Tsundoku.

Racing Post Ratings: Paul Curtis

Al Jazi (4.40 Goodwood)

Sets the standard on the form of her win in this race last year, and can repeat that success with ground conditions not an issue.

16.40 Goodwood

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Camacho Chief (7.50 Musselburgh)

Got off the mark in good style at Hamilton last month. Michael Dods's progressive youngster may have been let in lightly on his nursery debut and the yard is going well.

19.50 Musselburgh

Longshot: Ed Quigley

Bletchley (4.40 Goodwood)

Still unexposed at 7f and should handle the ground. Can't be ruled out in an open-looking race.

16.40 Goodwood

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Whiskey Sour (6.50 Galway)

Although returned at 16-1, the Willie Mullins-trained four-year-old was well supported when winning the big amateur handicap on Monday night. The drop in trip should not be a problem and with a 7lb penalty - going up 12lb in future - he can continue an excellent festival for his trainer and jockey Declan McDonogh. 

18.50 Galway
