Gosden Set For Yarmouth Success
Gosden Set For Yarmouth Success

John Gosden

Utterance looks certain to win races and can start with division one of the Injured Jockeys Fund Maiden Stakes at Yarmouth.

The well-bred son of Dansili made a perfectly satisfactory start to his career when fifth in what looked a decent enough event at Newmarket last month.

Always likely to be better for the run, his best work was towards the end of the mile trip having been held up and run green through the early stages.

Just normal improvement from that debut effort should make John Gosden’s youngster exceedingly difficult to beat.

It looks like being a good afternoon by the seaside for Newmarket-based Gosden, as Lahaag should be equally to the fore in division two.

The Marju colt had to give best only to the more experienced Captain Cat at HQ on his racecourse bow, missing the break but again doing his best work late.

The winner could be set for a handicap at Royal Ascot and had previous decent form behind Noble Mission in the book, so this was a fair effort from the Gosden runner.

Course and distance winner Barwick should again run his race on his return to this track.

Mark Tompkins’ four-year-old is 3lb higher than when winning in April but showed he could still be competitive off this mark next time out at Sandown when set a fair bit to do on very heavy ground.

Relatively lightly raced, he could have a bit more to offer yet and he has obvious claims in the Annual Membership At Great Yarmouth Racecourse Handicap.

Hughie Morrison is having a good time of things and close attention should be paid to his Flexible Flyer in the Diamond Jubilee Handicap at Leicester.

The Exceed And Excel colt went into a few notebooks when running a nice race on his sole start last season, and fulfilled that promise when reappearing at Warwick in April.

He won really nicely that day, despite still looking far from the finished article, and has the scope to be quite a deal better than his opening mark of 75.

Whitby Jet did little wrong when second at Lingfield and given he has done his winning on turf, he merits an interest in the Summer Wedding Fayre Here On 29th July Handicap at Redcar.

Success over hurdles last time out makes Bellaboosh relatively attractive switched to the bigger obstacles in the IWEC Electrical Handicap Chase at Ffos Las.

The Dave Roberts-trained six-year-old has only had two fencing starts, and there wasn’t a lot wrong with her second to the smart mare Alasi at Ludlow in January.

A mark of 94 is some 8lb lower than her current rating over hurdles.
