Preview extract:

The James Hayes Garden Macinery-sponsored Restricted race heads up the up the main race card, with entry Doyen Dynamo the likely favourite after his one length second at Kingston St Mary. Golden Squirrel was third that day, but could figure after his second to Cracking Habit at Holnicote and would look to appreciate the drying ground. Mangans Turn stayed on well to win at Littlewindsor and could well score for the Jack Barber team.

Preview extract:

Two divisions of the Open Maiden follow, and of the 20 entered in the first, the Carol Lawrence-trained Aah Bless could follow up on his eight length second to Just Seven at Vauterhill. Come On Mother from the Robert Chanin team is another to have scored a second and third at the Great Trethew meetings. The Jack Barber-trained Driftwood could be interesting on his debut run, with any market support worth noting. This race is sponsored by the Pittard family in memory of Bob Pittard.

Preview extract:

According To Harry is from a team bang in form, with Nicola Martin sending out winners most weekends. He has claims in the James Pryce Tractors-sponsored Intermediate race having run a head second to Jepeck at the Upcott meeting. Hallo Dolly made a pleasing start to her seasons campaign under Darren Edwards, when coming home five lengths second to Pasternak Jack at Vauterhill, the mare had been off the track for two years and looks likely to improve for the run.
