Racing: Hyperion's TV tips


2.50: Course winner Dines is bound to be popular but his stamina is not guaranteed, and both Andsuephi and FANFARON are capable of taking advantage if it fails. Fanfaron looks particularly well treated on his best form.

3.30: Further rain would harm the prospects of fast-ground contenders Baronet, Bobbyjo and Betty's Boy. MAHLER, in contrast, will appreciate some cut. Carl Llewellyn's mount reserves his best form for the spring and has reportedly recently received treatment for a back injury which was responsible for a loss of form earlier in the season.

4.10: The value could lie with DEHOUSH, who found his stride late in the day at Kempton but did so to some effect, storming through to lead close home. He will relish the extra two furlongs here. Derby entries Adnaan and Glamis both warrant plenty of respect.

4.45: Luca Cumani has started the season in fine form and his ZOMARADAH can take advantage of a weak entry for this Group 3. Generous Rosi finally regained winning ways at Kempton, but he was a 10-11 chance that day and is unproven in this grade. A more potent threat may be the Aidan O'Brien- trained four-year-old Risk Material.


2.30: A win by Little Rock at Sandown yesterday gave a boost to the chance of BACKCLOTH, who was a promising eight-length 7th to that colt as a juvenile. Today's race is just a run-of-the-mill handicap and Backcloth will be in fighting order after another pleasing showing on his reappearance 16 days ago. The pick of his rivals are Red May, who had her recent form boosted by this week's Beverley winner Nika Nesgoda, and Baisse D'Argent, who stayed well as a juvenile and is stepped up even more in distance after contesting a strong race at Newmarket on his reappearance.

4.30: GAELIC STORM is too good a horse to dismiss after last Saturday's costly defeat at Thirsk. One of his four handicap wins last year was gained under 10st and today's seven furlongs will suit him more than Thirsk's six. Sir Mark Prescott fields a big danger in the talented filly Grazia, who cruised home at Newbury on her first start last year. Her subsequent defeat in a Group One can be excused and, being a daughter of Sharpo, she has every chance of acting well on this rain-softened ground.
