All Or Nothin can make a winning start in handicap company as he lines up for trainer John Quinn at Pontefract on Monday.
The three-year-old has an initial mark of 76 in the’Mr Wolf Sprint Handicap as he looks to establish himself in the sprinting ranks.
Quinn only gave him one run as a juvenile last term and that patient approach seems to have paid off as the Majestic Missile gelding was a close-up third on his return last month.
Beaten just a length over seven furlongs, All Or Nothin was a bit green that day but showed enough speed to prompt connections to drop him back a furlong next time out.
That decision proved wise as All Or Nothin duly triumphed by nearly two lengths at Chester, offering plenty of promise for the future in the process.
The handicapper does not look to have been too harsh and while any further easing of the ground might be a slight worry, All Or Nothin looks to be a horse on the up.
Muntasir has become a bit expensive to follow in recent runs but he is worth one last try in the Read Hayley At racinguk.com Every Friday Handicap.
Beaten at odds-on last time, Muntasir does have some nice bits of form in the book, most notably when fourth to Derby runner-up Main Sequence last year.
He perhaps needs a stronger test than 10 furlongs but dropping out of maiden company for the first time could see Muntasir come good.
Miliika can build on her recent Brighton victory in the John Sunley Memorial Handicap at Windsor.
The three-year-old only narrowly lost out to Shahzan on her racecourse debut at Doncaster in May and stepped up on that effort when triumphing at the seaside venue nearly three weeks ago.
While it probably was not the strongest maiden, Miliika defied her evident inexperience to triumph by two and a half lengths having travelled well throughout.
Rae Guest looks to have a decent prospect in this proper sprinting type.
Sakhee’s Pearl can be rated a touch better than her most recent run suggests as she tackles the Pertemps Network Handicap.
The six-year-old will be having her first start on turf since last June and will also be returning from a lengthy spell out of action.
Last seen when fourth at Kempton in February, Jo Crowley’s charge raced a touch too wide throughout that day and was subsequently eased 1lb in the ratings.
Henry Allingham might not be much of a price in the HP Technology Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Folkestone, but he should take all of the beating.
Poole Harbour proved far too good for him at Kempton last month but this should present an easier task.
Blue Hills can make a quick return pay in the Follow Us On Facebook Handicap Chase at Newton Abbot.
