Alan Thomson has a trio of short-price fancies lined up for a Trixie on Tuesday.
KEHAILAAN (5.00) posted a very promising second to odds-on Flyin’ High on debut over a mile at Newcastle a fortnight ago and Mark Johnston’s colt will appreciate the longer trip in the 1m 2f novice stakes.
John Gosden’s Theyazin showed his inexperience from a very wide draw at Wolverhampton and much better is expected.
CUBAN CIGAR (6.30) posted yet another solid effort when chasing home improving Vina Bay at Kempton six days ago and can go close on Newcastle debut.
Tim Easterby’s RELKADAM (3.00) strolled through the race under Nathan Moscrop when hacking up at Wetherby last Tuesday and will be hard to beat under a 7lb penalty at Catterick. In-form rival Miss Amelia built on her solid Bangor second in January by going one better at Carlisle a fortnight ago.
