Well yesterday saw a welcome return to form with a bumper return. Let’s see if we can keep that going…

NAP OF THE DAY: Tea Clipper, (1505 Huntingdon), 1pt win, 11/4:
A cracking race in which the unbeaten Tea Clipper catches the eye. He won here on handicap debut last time doing very well to get back up on the line to beat some good hurdlers. This longer trip looks ideal. Plenty of these have untapped promise, but they help make a market for this horse who need no leap of faith.
Board Of Trade, (1455 Doncaster), 4/1: looked promising for a while in his more youthful days but injuries have badly hampered his progress. Showed some signs of hope back over hurdles last Summer and could be interesting returning from a break on a course and going that should be ideal and for a trainer who invariably comes alive in the Spring.
Lancelot Du Lac, (1550 Chelmsford), 11/4: hairy old veteran who hasn’t won for 2 years, but has run some of his best efforts here. Slipping hugely down the ratings and with a 5lb claimer booked he is looking very well handicapped. Has shown some sparks here of late and could get his own way up front from a handy draw.
Sandymount Rose, (1604 Doncaster), 13/2: Plenty of unexposed runners here with several making handicap debuts. Neil Mulholland’s mare is one such, and her decent efforts in maidens can be marked up as they were on heavy going. Bred to appreciate a better surface she looks a lively sort of a generous opening mark.
