Sporting Life Daily Nap, March 25

Trainer Keith Dalgleish has his dual-purpose team in good nick at present and that included an impressive Flat win for Soldier's Minute at Kempton on Saturday evening.

The four-year-old was having his first start since October and got the job done in good style and that gives some encouragement ahead of FRIENDLY ADVICE's return to action in the Ladbrokes, Home Of The Odds Boost Handicap at Wolvehampton on Monday.

Not seen since finishing third on handicap debut from a mark of 71 at Newcastle in November, the subsequently gelded son of Orientor looks potentially well in having been dropped 1lb to 70.

Granted, he was a comfortably-held second, beaten a length and a quarter in the end, but that came over five furlongs and they didn't go particularly quickly early on and it's not hard to argue a stronger gallop from the outset would have played more to Friendly Advice's strengths.

Stepping back up to six furlongs here could also suit. His only previous go at the trip shouldn't be judged too harshly as it came on softened ground at Hamilton in a pretty warm novice event won by Kevin Ryan's East - who went on to win in France and then run a big race in defeat at the Breeders' Cup towards the end of the year.

East isn't the only above-average sort Friendly Advice bumped into during a four-race campaign at two. Deputise, the Newcastle winner, is now rated 96 having gone in again since in a higher grade, while fourth at Gosforth Park was Friendly Advice's stablemate Woodside Wonder, whose mark shot up to 86 after two subsequent wins.

There are other lightly-raced types in here and a market move for Richard Hannon's Molaaheth could prove highly informative.

However, the main danger could be the Ryan-trained filly Evangeline Samos, who wasn't disgraced when a close-up fourth at Newcastle on her seasonal bow. She got the run of the race to some extent but is entitled to be sharper for the outing and has to respected despite Friendly Advice holding stronger form in the book at present.
