Easterby newcomer fancied to score in Redcar feature race

Gazette & Herald: Jockey Paul Hanagan Jockey Paul Hanagan

JACK LUEY, who made his reappearance at Redcar last week, finishing fourth, can step up to the mark at the same venue today and land the feature race on the card.

Previously with Lawrence Mullaney, who has recently handed in his licence, Jack Luey has since joined Tim Easterby,who must have been delighted with his recent comeback effort, which was achieved on ground faster than ideal.

That outing should have brought Jack Luey on a little bit and, having scored last season on his second start, he is fancied to do so again in the Follow RedcarRacing On Facebook & Twitter Handicap over five furlongs. David Allan rides.

In the Happy 10th Birthday Racing UK Selling Stakes, Bond Club gets the vote.

Geoff Oldroyd's sprinter ran well to finish second to Bear Behind in a similar race at Thirsk recently and the winner has since gone on to win a hot handicap at Haydock on Saturday. Bond Club can go one better this time.

Newmarket trainer Hugo Palmer has his string in good form and the trainer's promising Lamorak makes plenty of appeal in the racinguk.com/anywhere Maiden Stakes.

Graham Lee's mount ran a fine race at Windsor a fortnight ago and has the scope to do better. This looks a good opportunity for him to get his head in front.

Flatcapper (2.20) and Neighbother (4.50), who is blinkered for the first time, provide Richard Fahey with double prospects on the card.

At Leicester, Towbee is napped to take the opening honours for Mick Easterby and Paul Hanagan.

The five-year-old has has had three outings this season and although he showed little in two of them, he shaped well at Thirsk on his penultimate start.

Five furlongs on soft ground are the ideal requirements for Towbee, and that is what he's got this afternoon. He is napped to come good.

Meeting Waters is fancied for the Coronation Fillies' Handicap and complete a double for Hanagan.

The three-year-old, trained by William Haggas, shaped well during her juvenile career and left the impression that she would thrive in her second season. This looks a good starting point for her.

Richard Hannon's juveniles often improve for their for first runs and two of his youngsters are worth noting. Paint The Star was a beaten favourite at Windsor eight days ago, but ran well to finish third, beaten only two lengths. She can learn from that experience and make amends this time in the British Stallion Studs Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

Silver Ranger made his debut at York earlier this month and showed a useful level of ability to finish third to Bossy Guest in what looked a decent maiden race.

It is impossible to know the strength of opposition Silver Ranger takes on this afternoon, given the amount of newcomers in the field, but he looks sure to go well under Sean Levey, who also rides Paint The Sky.
