Early Bird – 29th March

4:45 Wetherby – Silver Tassie

Worth chancing the Micky Hammond stalwart in this race. A winner this time last year off the same mark, it showed a return to form when second at Newcastle on soft ground despite being unfancied in the betting. Connections then sent it back there for the Eider though found the attritional 4m too much for it. This is a much easier contest and having been given ample rest from its last run it has a good chance to get its head in front once more.

5:35 Chelmsford – Nag’s Wag

One of only two rides for Hayley Turner at Chelmsford on Thursday. This has been well supported though having finished a good second two runs back before no chance from the car park here last time out when the first two home were drawn in the first two stalls. Much better draw today in stall 3 and this looks an easier contest. Has slipped to a very good mark, it would be disappointing if the money wasn’t significant.
