Richard Fahey horse by horse guide to Saturday team

Last Updated July 08 2017, 19:58Racing

It's a quieter Saturday than usual for our star columnist Richard Fahey, but he still has runners at four meetings.

It’s a much smaller Saturday team than we’re used to this week with just eight runners, but it will be business as usual next weekend with the likes of York and Chester staging action.

Regulator is quite a nice horse who makes his debut in division one of the Pallet Racking EBF Maiden Stakes at Beverley. He’s typical of a breeze-up purchase in that he can be keen and we’ve had to mind him a little bit to this point. We do like him and he has a good draw here so if the penny drops in time he may run okay.

Harvest Moon doesn’t show an awful lot at home but ran a bit better at Redcar last time. I thought the handicapper was tough with her original mark and she might still need a little more help, but we’ll see in the Paul Midgley Racing Handicap.

Greenview Paradise has been very busy of late but is in the sales at Newmarket next week and I wanted to get another run into her before that over 10 furlongs. The Computanet IT And Network Support Services Fillies' Handicap is the opportunity for it and she’d have a chance if she stays.

Scofflaw won well at Thirsk two starts ago but has been a fraction disappointing twice since. Maybe the handicapper has him now and he needs to step up to be competitive in the bet365.com Handicap at Haydock.

Bahamian C does his own thing but Emily Bullock seems to get a good tune out of him. If she manages to do so again he could go well in the Genting Casino Nottingham 10 Year Anniversary Lady Amateur Riders Handicap at Nottingham.

Panophobia never rose a gallop on debut at Nottingham. I hope he shows more in the Glo And Go Tanning Lounge Novice Median Auction Stakes at Carlisle but he’s a horse who may be going down the handicap route.

Character Onesie won’t mind the ground and the trip will suit in the Racing UK Handicap. I’d love to see him get his head in front soon and it looks a good opening for him.

We also run Natajack, but we don’t know what his trip is which is always a bad sign! He was gelded and ran a little better the last day but needs to show more here.
