Quickfire nap double on cards for Nottingham runner Stellarta
Stellarta, who did this column a good turn a couple of weeks ago when scoring handsomely at Beverley, is again burdened with the nap vote tomorrow as she bids to follow up at Nottingham.
The juvenile, trained by Michael Blanshard, will again have the services of Paul Hanagan in the 32Red Casino Nursery Handicap.
Stellarta won in decisive style at Beverley, a deserved reward for a string of placed efforts.
She looks on a good mark off a rating of 70 and should take plenty of beating in this five- furlong dash.
Gold Trail promises to be hard to beat in the 32Red Nursery Handicap.
The Godolphin colt, trained by Charlie Appleby, got off the mark at his second attempt at Haydock last month.
He still looked green on that occasion and is surely open to further improvement. This extra furlong should be perfect for him.
Norton trainer John Quinn sends Fantasy Gladiator to Nottingham to contest the 32RedBet.com Handicap.
The gelding has finished runner-up on his last two starts and went down by only a head at Kempton last time.
He is a previous winner over this course and distance, and is not to be underestimated.
Demonic, who has been lightly raced this season, makes appeal in the 32Red.com Handicap.
Lady Cecil’s three-year-old finished in the frame on both his starts in the spring when he had a pretty high reputation.
He has been off the course since, which is a slight worry, but he looks to be on a fair mark for this handicap debut and he remains a horse with untapped potential.
Also worthy of interest are the promising Torrid (3.30) and the consistent Hector’s Chance (5.30).
At Kempton’s evening meeting, Ryan Moore looks the jockey to follow.
The former champion, in hot pursuit of Richard Hughes in this year’s title race, could enhance his chances at this fixture.
He partners Fine Art Ruler (5.40) and Checkpoint (6.10) for his father, Gary, in the opening two races and and has further good chances on Cannock Chase (6.40), a well-bred newcomer trained by Sir Michael Stoute, plus Claim The Roses (8.10) and Duke Cosimo (8.40), two previous course winners.
Malton trainer Richard Fahey has recruited former stable jockey Hanagan to ride Cosmic Sun in the betdaq Handicap over one mile and three furlongs.
The gelding has been in excellent heart lately and was beaten by only half a length at Musselburgh recently. He is a previous winner over this course and distance, and looks sure to run a good race.
2.00 Conflicting, 2.30 Margrets Gift, 3.00 Stellarta (NAP), 3.30 Torrid, 4.00 Gold Trail, 4.30 Fantasy Gladiator, 5.00 Demonic, 5.30 Hector’s Chance.
5.40 Fine Art Fair, 6.10 Checkpoint, 6.40 Cannock Chase, 7.10 Potentate, 7.40 Cosmic Sun, 8.10 Claim The Roses, 8.40 Duke Cosimo, 9.10 Moment In The Sun.
Tomorrow’s other meetings: Ludlow and Towcester.
Today’s meetings: Brighton, Catterick, Leicester and Wolverhampton.
