Richard Fahey guides us through his team for Ascot and Newcastle on Saturday

Richard Fahey - busy weekend in store

Richard Fahey sends Al Rasmah to Ascot on Saturday and has runners at Newcastle too. Check out his full guide.

2.05 Ascot – Al Rasmah

She’s a filly we like a lot. We took her down to the Royal Meeting and things didn’t quite go right for her in the Sandringham and she was still beaten less than five lengths. She’s been working well since, I’m very pleased with her, and she definitely has a chance in a competitive race.

4.50 Newcastle – Yoshimi

We also took him to Royal Ascot - for the Golden Gates Handicap - where he had to overcome a wide draw. He ran well for a long way before finishing seventh and returns to a mile from ten furlongs on Saturday. It’s the course-and-distance over which he finished third to Palace Pier first time out in a red-hot handicap so you’d hope he’ll run a big race.

5.25 Newcastle – In Paradise

She’s a daughter of Twilight Son and quite nice. I hate going over seven furlongs with fillies first time but there are such limited opportunities at the moment that we have to with her. She goes alright and her prep work has been encouraging.

5.25 Newcastle – Quarantini

She’s had the benefit of a run and I thought she ran well at Doncaster, not beaten far into sixth after being slowly away. She’ll definitely improve for that experience and she too could go well in this.

5.55 Newcastle – Boundsy Boy

He’s a big, backward horse who is probably going to want a trip moving forward. He needs racing and experience and while he should improve for his debut at Musselburgh, I’d be surprised if he was capable of winning a maiden right now.

5.55 Newcastle – It’s A Green Thing

He isn’t dissimilar to Boundsy Boy and is a work in progress. He hung terribly to his left when last on debut at Beverley and we need to start finding out who good he is.

9.00 Newcastle – Craylands

She has joined us from Michael Bell’s having run three times as a two-year-old and is a horse owner Tim Gredley is quite keen on. She’s a little keen and free going but if she settles here I think she’ll could run very well. She goes up to ten furlongs but is bred to stay but she must relax, that’s the first task.
