John Quinn's smart start to the season can continue at Catterick on Monday, according to Nick Robson.
Nap: Keep Busy (2.15 Catterick)
Next Best: Tricky Dicky (2.45 Catterick)
John Quinn has enjoyed a good first half of the season with his juveniles and Keep Busy can provide him with another winner in the EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes at Catterick.
With Liberty Beach landing the Hilary Needler at Beverley and set to head to Ascot later in the week, Quinn has proved yet again that you do not need to spend fortunes to mix with the big boys.
He showed when winning the Queen Mary with the unheralded Signora Cabello last season that he can spot a bargain and Keep Busy, a 34,000 guineas purchase, showed enough on debut to suggest she will win races.
She is out of the prolific winning mare Look Busy, who was trained by Alan Berry, and being by a 2000 Guineas winner in Night Of Thunder she looks a bit of a snip.
While Look Busy did win at two, she was not what you would call precocious and came to her peak at three and four.
On debut Keep Busy finished third of five, which might not set the page alight, but she did finish in front of an odds-on shot and the winner has gone on to be third in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown.
Roger Fell has worked his magic with Tricky Dicky and he can defy a penalty in the Millbry Hill Veterans' Handicap.
When with Olly Williams the six-year-old had become frustrating, before winning a two-runner affair before the switch.
Fell has wasted no time in taking advantage of a much lower mark on turf and a win at Thirsk confirmed he handled it just as well as the all-weather.
Another win at Pontefract recently suggests he remains in great heart, and he copes with cut in the ground.
Morning Duel was not particularly fancied on his recent Ripon debut, but shaped well to finish third.
Normal improvement with experience suggests David O'Meara's charge could be worth backing in the Follow At racingtv On Twitter Maiden Stakes.
With Karl Burke's string bursting into life recently, Praxidice is of interest in the racingtv.com Fillies' Handicap at Carlisle.
A debut winner at the track last year, she ran a fine race to be fifth of 28 in a valuable sales race at Newmarket on her second start.
Her next two runs, her final outing of last year and her reappearance this, came on heavy ground so can be excused, and off a lower mark she has the talent to get involved.
Molls Memory can win the Marathonbet Sportsbook Handicap at Windsor. Ed Walker's filly has gone up 6lb for last month's tidy win at Ascot, and at the same distance that should not deter her as she bids for a Berkshire double.
The step up in trip should be in the favour of William Haggas' Hamish in the MarathonBet "Check Our Prices First" Novice Stakes.
Second on debut over a mile at Thirsk, the gelding has plenty of stamina in his pedigree and is related to the likes of Vow and Harris Tweed.
Aplomb can make up for this month's Musselburgh defeat as favourite when he tries again in the Bet At racingtv.com Handicap at Nottingham.
