LISTED FESTIVAL STAKES
BILLESDON BESS ran a bit fresh at Newmarket last time and has come on plenty for the run. She has form around this track and seems to be very versatile ground wise. I would hope she can run a nice race and get back to her form of last year.
ATEEM has drawn very badly and this will make it hard for him. He is in good form at home and won well last time on a track that didn’t suit him. I would hope he can settle in midfield and hit the line strong.
ACROSS THE STARS has been going well at home. He didn’t run badly at Newmarket last time and hopefully round a track like York he can settle nicely and should be doing his best work late on.
REGIMENTED didn’t get home last time at Newmarket and I think the drop back to the mile on a nice galloping track like Haydock should suit ideally. He is in good form and he should run a nice race.
QAYSAR is a lovely horse who keeps on improving. He won well at Newbury last time and has plenty more improvement in him. This is the ideal race for him and hopefully he can be right there at the finish.
LISTED TAPSTER STAKES
EUGINIO is stepping up in trip for the first time to the mile and a half. He ran well in the Earl Of Sefton but only really got going late on in the piece. He should have no problem getting Home and I hope he can run a nice race.
ALL OUT ran very well last weekend at Newbury in a very competitive affair. She stuck on gamely on ground that was a touch quick for her. She should appreciate the ground tomorrow and has been in great form this week. She should run a nice race.
