Two each to Warwick and Market Rasen today.
3.55 - Muckle Roe has a good record here including a win back in May over 3m 1+f on good ground. Raised 9lbs for that to 128, he finished mid-division last time in a better race at Sandown. He gets back 5lbs today and steps up in trip too, to 3m 5f. The heavy ground shouldn’t inconvenience him, he’s in good form and looks to have solid each way chance. Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
5.30 - Milanstorm made a pleasing racecourse debut four weeks ago, at Towcester, taking second spot, beaten by a very well regarded sort. He’s sure to have benefitted from that experience and looks sure to be thereabouts again. A good run expected, Sam in the saddle.
4.10 - Supakalanistic won in nice style at Southwell in early February from a mark of 111 on his handicap debut, but a rise of 11lbs here looks a little harsh. However, the step up in trip to 2m 7f on similar soft conditions, will hopefully see him show more improvement and he looks to have a good chance again in an open looking event. Jamie Bargary takes off 3lbs and another good run expected.
4.40 - Lagavara won in determined fashion three outings ago at Leicester over 2m 4+f on today’s soft ground, then up 6lb was pulled up next time at Wincanton in heavy conditions. Up to 3m and 3rd of 5 from the same mark four weeks ago at Towcester, she gets back a pound today and should find conditions and 2m 7f to her liking. Looks to have more to come and Jamie’s 3lb claim will help too.
Mr Antolini (20/1) & Crievehill (3/1), both Sandown, 10th March.
