2.25: After trying to match strides with the powerful galloper Monsieur Le Cure on his last two outings, taking on today's more modest oppposition should come as a relief to CRYSTAL SPIRIT. Bogged down at Aintree, today's fast ground should help his cause.
3.00: MAD THYME is just about the best maiden hurdler in training having failed to get his head in front in 15 attempts over the last three seasons. Placed efforts behind leading novices Top Spin and Corrouge this year give him every chance at today's weights. Butler's Twitch is improving fast and has a clear chance too.
3.35: The most recent effort of TRI FOLENE, when tailed-off at Aintree, does not appear encouraging but she was hampered early on and could not get up with the action thereafter. Amateur-ridden when third at the Festival, she will benefit from Richard Dunwoody's handling. Along with Windy Ways, she is suited by fast ground.Reuse content
