MY GIRL MAGGIE (3.20) can snap a sequence of placed efforts by landing the 1m 4f apprentices' handicap at Lingfield.
Mark Johnston's young rider Oliver Stammers can claim 3lb on the filly and My Girl Maggie should strip sharper for her first run in 75 days when third to the William Haggas-trained Al Zaraqaan at Kempton. The winner has been handed a handicap mark of 90, so My Girl Maggie isn't badly treated rated 75 in this lesser grade.
THE BOMBER LISTON (2.20) was a costly failure when just touched off in a Catterick bumper but the sharp track/minimum trip proved his undoing. Unsurprisingly, Nicky Henderson has wasted no time in stepping the JP McManus-owned gelding up to 2m 4f for his hurdles debut at Newbury.
