Eyecatchers Of The Day
Always Archie almost caused a stir when pushing Call The Cops all the way in the two-mile-five novice hurdle at Ludlow.
Tim Vaughan's 20/1 chance only gave way close home as Nicky Henderson's 4/11 shot got on top to win by a length and a half, with the third horse home fully 20 lengths away.
It was no disgrace and by far Always Archie's best effort in four starts over hurdles.
He can soon be placed to advantage. Watch the free video replay here.
Meanwhile, Mairise looks one to keep on the right side of judging by his effort at Yarmouth.
Sir Michael Stoute's Authorized gelding was making his handicap debut and was sent off the 5/2 favourite to prevail.
He could only finish fourth but wasn't beaten far and looks like he'll get even further judging by his finishing effort.
Pointers from the gallops
Andrew Balding fires some of his big guns this week with particular attention being drawn to Epsom and Sandown's first Flat fixtures of the season.
The Kingsclere trainer looks to have a tasty entry for Sandown's Esher Cup in the shape of BORN IN BOMBAY and END OF LINE.
Born In Bombay is an especially likeable colt by Shamardal that created a favourable impression when impressively breaking his maiden on Polytrack. The form worked out beautifully and he looked in good order engaging in some strong work on grass.
End Of Line showed an affinity for cut in the ground when breaking his maiden first time out. Any rain will not bother this son of Pastoral Pursuits who has worked nicely but the Guineas entry may just come on for a run.
As the field thunder down the straight for its first race of the year the likelihood is that NEW FFOREST will be to the fore at Epsom on Wednesday.
The daughter of Oasis Dream always shows plenty of foot in her work at home and looks ready for this seasonal return.
SOVIET ROCK and VAN PERCY will attempt to complete the City And Suburban/Great Met double for Balding.
Soviet Rock has the advantage of being very good fresh, as he showed when winning his first two in 2013.
Van Percy landed some good bets at Lingfield and can graduate from that Class Three triumph as he's run well on the Epsom undulations before.
TULLIUS can prove one of the flag bearers for Park House Stables and he looked in grand order working ahead of the Bet365 Mile.
The Kennet Valley owned six-year-old landed his only Pattern success at Salisbury almost two years ago but has run well in defeat in smart company on more than one occasion subsequently.
IMPULSIVE MOMENT is a horse with bags of potential that went well in its latest piece of stronger work and could take his chance in the Bet365 Classic Trial on Friday.
