AMARI KING: returned from a lay-off to finish last of three in the Sandown amateur riders' race won by Springholm. Beaten less than two lengths, however, and his impressive jumping over the stiff fences at the Esher course indicated this nine-year-old will soon be winning again. (T Forster).

CARABUCK: beaten a long way but finished fast to take fourth place in a Towcester maiden hurdle after being outpaced for most of the 2 miles 5 furlong trip. Has yet to reach the frame in five runs and has appeared disappointing, but could well surprise when put in handicap company over three miles. (R Rowe).

WHATS YOUR PROBLEM: a 10- year-old struggling to regain the consistent form that brought a total of four victories in the 1990/91 and 1991/92 seasons. Proved his fencing ability remains intact when amateur ridden at Leicester, however. That followed a racecourse absence of three months and he should be ready to win soon. (Mrs H Knight).
