LORD TORRANAGA (4.05) is a rare runner for Phil Kirby at Lingfield and the hint is worth taking in the 1m 4f handicap.
The six-year-old won over Wolverhampton's extended nine furlongs 18 days ago but he has scored over hurdles at Sedgefield, so stamina is not a concern. Hat-trick seeking French Minstrel, raised 6lb for his latest success, will help make the market.
QUEEN'S SARGENT (2.50) ran a promising sixth in the Spring Mile at Doncaster's Lincoln meeting and should go close in the 7f handicap at Catterick. Kevin Ryan has his string in good form and Queen's Sargent was a dual winner over this trip at Thirsk and Beverley last July. Parys Mountain held off Chookie Dunedin over course and distance a fortnight ago but this looks a bit tougher.
ALRIGHT SUNSHINE (1.25) can get punters off to winning start on Perth’s varied and interesting eight-race card.
Keith Dalgleish’s gelding is a smart staying handicapper on the level and although still to cut the mustard over hurdles (three-time bumper winner), Alright Sunshine remains unexposed in this maiden hurdle sphere.
Carry On The Magic flopped on first start for Paul Nicholls but was well backed, so better things were obviously anticipated. Jetaway Joe was beaten 33 lengths at Hereford following a wind operation and Enemenemynemo ran third at Southwell in early March. So a bigger danger may be Navan fourth Wowsham representing the successful Stuart Crawford/Brian Hughes combo.
