Eyecatchers Of The Day
Pasaka Boy's wide draw of 16 did not really give him much of a hope in the City And Suburban Handicap but Jonny Portman's gelding showed enough to suggest he could be a feature if he returns to Epsom.
Last year, the chestnut won a valuable 10-furlong prize on Derby Day and he is currently sitting on a mark just 2lb higher, as he struggled a few times during the rest of the summer.
Pasaka Boy managed to get reasonably close despite his eventual finishing position of eighth, and with the trainer's horses usually better for their first run, he should not be written off just yet.
Chatez looks a three-year-old to keep onside after a ready success in, what appeared beforehand, to be a pretty competitive renewal of the Investec Specialist Bank Handicap at Epsom. He looks capable of following up from his revised mark and it's also to be hoped that the handicapper sees fit to drop Mime Dance by a couple of pounds which would see his rating fall to 75 and would allow him to drop in grade.
Andrew Balding's colt showed up well for a long way on his seasonal reappearance - on ground that his handler doesn't believe is ideal - before staying on at the one pace once headed in a race that was dominated by those held-up and and he can show the benefit of this run next time.
Pointers from the gallops
Richard Hannon sent a posse of horses due to run at the end of the week up the main all-weather strip at Lambourn.
MONTIRIDGE should pay his way in Pattern races and moved with menace ahead of Sandown's bet365 Mile.
TRUMPET MAJOR will accompany him in that Group Two on Friday and is working like he usually does before coming back fresh off his break. In current mood he'll put up a good showing in pursuit of back-to-back triumphs.
SACHA PARK appears to have gained in confidence since scoring on his comeback and he moved with a certain éclat.
He has a valuable three-year-old handicap in his sights while HYMENAIOS looked in fine fettle in his latest piece of stronger work with a recent winner and goes in the 10-furlong handicap.
Mick Channon took his horses to the winter ground at West Ilsley.
LINCOLN breezed up the all-weather and looks in good heart ahead of the three-year-old handicap at Beverley on Thursday.
He contested a competitive race at Newbury last time and wasn't disgraced to finish just out of the money. This would seem a more straightforward opportunity.
FINFLASH didn't manage to justify on-course support at Yarmouth on Monday but has come out of it well.
He'd worked well prior to that comeback effort and could run again soon, as the outing looks to have brought him on.
PALERMO didn't cut much ice in her maiden at Newbury but that was a very strongly contested race.
This filly has scope to improve when dropped in class and has worked pleasingly since.
