Richard Fahey on his Saturday runners at Redcar and Newmarket

Summer Sands returns following last weekend's fine third in the Middle Park

Summer Sands will be a warm order for the Racing TV Redcar Two Year Old Trophy - get Richard Fahey's thoughts on him and the rest of his Saturday team.

13:40 Newmarket - Eva Maria

She’s progressing nicely and did well to win from a difficult draw at Ayr last time. She’s up in grade here and it will be tougher but she could improve again. It will be interesting to see how she goes.

13:45 Redcar - Duesenberg

I was a fraction disappointed with him at Ayr last time – he looked like he might be coming there to do something big but walked through the last 100 yards. Maybe time will show that wasn’t a bad run and the form is strong but it is tricky carrying penalties in these races for all he isn't a bad little horse.

13:45 Redcar - Embolden

He was disappointing at Chester last time but he just didn’t handle the track there and was never on an even keel from a wide draw. He's a good, solid, hardy horse who is capable of running well.

13:45 Redcar - Sports Reporter

He's our final runner in the race and it's frustrating as we really like him too. All of the trio are very capable although whether he can go up there and win first time out on heavy ground I wouldn't know. He has ability though.

14:15 Newmarket - Trevie Fountain

On form he's up against it here and has been a little disappointing but it’s a £150,000 race and the owner is keen to have a go which I completely understandable. Let’s see how he goes.

14:15 Newmarket - Bond's Boy

I was very pleased with him when he won on debut at Redcar and all you can do is beat what’s put in front of you. This is altogether more competitive but he’s a big colt who’s going to make up into a nice horse one day.

14:20 Redcar – Indomeneo

He's become disappointing. It's tough for him carrying a penalty in a seller but on some of his form from handicaps he has a chance.

14:20 Redcar - Lightning Attack

I’d love to see him win. He’s still a maiden, through no fault of his own. He just keeps running to between 71 and 74 and it hasn’t been enough to win a race. We’re dropping him in grade here and hope his luck changes.

14:55 Redcar – Summer Sands

He comes here off the back a big run when third to Earthlight in the Middle Park. He must be the one to beat with 8st 3lb on his back even on his form prior to Newmarket. He seems to have come out of last week’s run in great shape. I don’t know how deep the ground is going to be but I wouldn’t be afraid of soft going for him.

14:55 Redcar - Dylan De Vega

He still has to prove he truly stays six furlongs but he’s one of the higher rated horses in the race if he does and is very capable.

14:55 Redcar - Hartswood

He got off the mark at Redcar last time and is a progressive colt. He could improve again but I’d be a little surprised if he beat Summer Sands.

16:10 Redcar - Calvados Spirit

He won two starts ago at Newmarket and the straight mile here will suit him. I'd love to see him go well but he does need to bounce back from a below-par run at Musselburgh.

16:10 Redcar - Zip

I thought he might run a bit better at Haydock last time and we’ve taken the visor off him here as we felt he didn’t quite get home that day. He has no weight on his back and won’t mind the testing ground.

16:45 Redcar - Delph Crescent

He’s been running ok and I thought he shaped well here last time. The track suits him and must have a chance in an open race.

17:10 Newmarket - Amber Spark

The handicapper looks to have her and we’ve no excuses. We’re dropping her in trip here to see if that helps although she hasn’t looked to be crying out for it. It’s worth a try.

17:20 Redcar - Fairy Stories

She’s in great form and loves soft ground. She did well to win at Hamilton last time and while she’s up in grade here, a progressive filly at this time of the year always gives you a chance.
