Tuesday's Eyecatchers

A change in scenery and a large step up in distance to the mile and three-quarters handicap at Ffos Las brought about a considerable improvement from Medburn Cutler.

When trained by George Baker, the chestnut started off in a bumper and then moved to the Flat, failing to even place in a handful of runs and rounded off by running over a mile and a furlong.

He has now moved to the Paul Henderson yard and stayed on quite nicely on his debut to take fourth. Medburn Cutler is so lowly-rated now that he might be worth another look now settling into a new regime; you can watch the video replay here.

Si Senor proved to be in a different class to his rivals in the mile handicap at Kempton and Ed Vaughan's son of Dansili should prove capable of defying a rise in the weights at his favourite venue with the London Mile series an obvious long-term target.

There was six lengths back to the third, Venturous Spirit, but this was by no means a bad performance from John Gosden's lightly-raced filly.

Making her handicap debut, she was further back than ideal given the way that the race developed but was doing all of her best work in the closing stages having taken time to pick up.

A half-sister to a number of winners over further, a step up in trip could bring about the necessary improvement to help this lightly raced filly gain that all-important success for her paddock value.

Gallops Latest

Richard Hannon can look forward to a plethora of big-race activity from the fall out from Goodwood, with unlucky-in-running MAGIC CITYhaving taken his Betfred Mile run in his stride.

Having recovered quickly from his strong-finishing run in the big mile handicap, Magic City will drop back to seven furlongs for another valuable handicap at the same track on August bank holiday weekend.

IVAWOOD is undoubtedly the most physically forward juvenile at Herridge and he has taken last week's exertions without turning a hair.

His next race is likely to be the Middle Park Stakes as that affords him a nice gap and he's not one who wants too many races this season.

SHAGAH was impressive in breaking her maiden and is definitely one to follow.

She didn't take much out of herself and will take a step up the class ladder by contesting either the Radley Stakes or the Rockfel.

WINDSHEAR has a frustrating habit of finding one too good, but there's no doubt he was unlucky-in-running against Snow Sky in the Gordon Stakes.

There was nothing wrong with that effort in terms of a trial for the season's final Classic at Doncaster.

PETHER'S MOON has been the subject of weighty offers from Australia, but this physically imposing horse remains in the same ownership for now.

Several of this week's runners breezed up the strip, including VESNINA who looks in good heart for her maiden at Kempton. She seems happy on the all-weather surface.

COOL STRUTTER has been working well and is worth watching at Sandown later in the week.

DIVINE LAW and GUILTY both won last time out and have nursery engagements ahead.
