Apprentice jockey Jason Hart targets Redcar double
Jason Hart, blazing the trail in the race to be champion apprentice, can further his claims on the title by riding a double at Redcar tomorrow.
The North Yorkshire pilot, who is attached to Declan Carroll’s Sledmere yard, is fancied to add to his ever-increasing tally of winners aboard nap selection Al Muheer and Mr Mo Jo.
Al Muheer is trained at Stillington by Ruth Carr and runs in the Watch Racing UK On Channel 432 Selling Stakes.
An eight-time winner, he has found it difficult to get his head in front this season in handicaps, but he finished a good fourth to Our Boy Jack at Thirsk last week. This drop in class should be to his benefit.
Hart rode Mr Mo Jo to finish a close third at Musselburgh last time out and he gets another spin on Lawrence Mullaney’s gelding in the Download The Racing UK App Handicap. A bold bid is anticipated.
Such is the form of John Quinn’s horses that it may be unwise to overlook his Darling Boyz in the Hold Your Christmas Party Here Nursery Handicap.

Furthermore, he represents a Norton trainer who sent out seven winners in four days up until Sunday after having only six successes last month.
Mick Easterby may have announced at the weekend that he is to hand over to his son David at the end of the year, but the Sheriff Hutton veteran will continue to be competitive until that day dawns.
He has a couple of winning chances tomorrow with Unex Michelangelo (4.25), back on turf after two creditable efforts on Wolverhampton’s fibresand surface, and Alluring Star (5.30), who drops back in trip.
At Goodwood, Sugar Boy is a fascinating runner in the featured Greene King Foundation Stakes on his first outing for Newmarket trainer Marco Botti.
Previously trained in Ireland, the three-year-old has not been seen out since finishing last of nine in the Irish Derby. He had previously boasted some high-class form, which included a win in the Sandown Classic Trial and a host of solid juvenile efforts.
Middleham trainer Mark Johnston, who has a wonderful record at the Sussex course, sends Double Bluff south to tackle the Bibendum Maiden Stakes over nine furlongs.
The juvenile ran a blinder on his debut at Doncaster at the St Leger meeting when beating all except Pupil over a mile.
• Boroughbridge jockey Paul Mulrennan suffered a broken collarbone, broken ribs and a punctured lung in a horrible fall at Hamilton yesterday.
