Saturday's Eyecatchers

There's a big race in Burano judged by his run in the Qatar Racing Suffolk Stakes at Newmarket. Brian Meehan's five-year-old found all sorts of trouble in running but still managed to stay on under Jimmy Fortune to finish seventh in what looked a competitive race.

He may be falling into the unlucky camp once too often for most punters, as something similar happened last time out, but he is definitely worth following in the big mile handicaps this season and it will be disappointing if he cannot win a race or two before the season is out.

In the Qatar Bloodstock Jockey Club Stakes, there was another decent performance from Pether's Moon, who continued to climb the ladder when posting a career-best performance when second behind Gospel Choir.

The Richard Hannon-trained four-year-old was progressive in handicaps last season and took the step up in class in his stride. You couldn't rule out further improvement and something like the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot must be on his agenda now.

Pointers From The Gallops

IDEA is working towards a seasonal return to action and was one of the horses Sir Michael Stoute took to Long Hill this morning.

The grey, unlucky not to be unbeaten after unseating his pilot in the stalls on his Goodwood debut before scoring at Windsor, engaged in some work with a similarly unexposed stablemate.

It was not much more than bridle work with idea quickening nicely to have the edge on SIR ROSCOE at the business end between the three and the four.

MUNAASER has not come up to scratch on the racecourse but is always a willing worker at home.

He looked in good order as he quickened three to four lengths clear of recent scorer GOOD VALUE.

RAPID ADVANCE showed himself to be in good form as he streaked away from one other.

He took control at the three and was three to four lengths clear of TALL SHIP at the four.

SAHARA DESERT did not cut much ice upon his return to the fray but is better than the form indicates.

He looked on good terms with himself as he came up with ROCKET SHIP and EYE CONTACT.

SNOW SKY and FESTIVAL THEATRE have been in good form at home and Stoute will run at least one of the pair in next week's Chester Vase.
