Good Tyne Girl is our first runner on Saturday in the ripon-races.co.uk Novice Auction Stakes. She’s fit and well having been due to run a couple of weeks ago. She’s a typical early-season two-year-old who could run well on debut here.

Gin In The Inn reappears in the At The Races Sky 415 Handicap. He had some good early season form last season and has come down a few pounds again. We’re happy with him at home and he won’t mind any juice in the ground.

We also run Scofflaw who isn’t always the easy to predict. He’s very fit and well going into this and he’s gone well at Ripon before.

The Best Odds Guaranteed At 188Bet Handicap at Haydock looks tough for Rene Mathis off a mark of 95 but we need to get him going and this is a good starting point. He won’t mind the ground.

On some of his form Doctor Cross would have a chance in the Enhanced Place Odds At 188Bet Handicap and we’re very happy with him this spring. He shouldn’t mind the ground either.

Kimberella surprised me when winning so well at Thirsk last week but faces a different test in the totepool EBF Stallions King Richard III Stakes at Leicester. It’s a stiff seven there but if he turns up in the same form as last week he’d have a chance. He’s one tough cookie.

It’s a big day for Inviolable Spirit in the totetrifecta Handicap. He’s been a little disappointing but is working well at home. He needs to show us something now.

Andok is another who has been a little frustrating. We thought he was really nice as a two-year-old but he did run himself back into some form at the backend of last season. He looks fantastic right now, better than he has for a while, and I hope we might see a bit of improvement in the Wateraid Handicap at Doncaster.

Normandy Blue is in the sales as he too has been disappointing. We’re stepping him up in trip for the Morrison Utility Services Handicap but I’d be hoping he runs well rather than thinking he will.

Lady In Question might just be better for the run in the John Mee Construction Vac-Ex Fillies' Handicap but is working well and has a definite chance.

So does Danehill Desert in the closing Yorkshire Water Handicap. He’s been working really nicely this spring and looks fantastic. It’s a big day for him. His form is solid and he’s going really well at home.
