Leicester - 15:00
This is a two-year-old fillies' handicap for those rated from 0-80, and there are a few useful looking runners in the field.
Mraseel has been fairly busy this year having already had six races to date, although last time out at Catterick it was very short lived as she jinked to the right at the start and unseated jockey Martin Harley. Prior to that she was a good winner of a novices' stakes on firm ground at Bath, and providing she gets away from the stalls today, I think she can be a big player in this. She will also need to be able to handle ground with a bit of give in it, but she seemed fine on the all weather surface at Kempton, therefore, I would be hopeful of her running well on good ground.
The Tom Dascombe trained Auntie Pam has been running very consistently without getting her head in front, but this is just her second start over six furlongs and I think there could be more to come from her. It is interesting to note that Dascombe has a particularly good record with his runners coming out again inside seven days, where he is 8/38 (21.05%) for a level stakes profit of 18.50.
Song Of Summer was a decisive winner of a similar handicap last time out over six furlongs at Doncaster, and having only been raised two pounds for that victory, she has every chance of repeating the feat if running to a similar level here today. This will be the fifth start for this Choisir filly, and although she looks certain to tackle longer distances in time, she looks sure to be one of the stronger finishers in this race and I expect her to be involved.
Queen Of Kalahari already has a couple of wins to her name, a maiden at Leicester and a novices' stakes at Newbury. She was outclassed when entering handicap company for the first time after that, however, that was a stronger nursery handicap than this one and she should feel a lot more at home in this company. Trainer Charlie Hills has quite a pleasing record here at Leicester, winning over 23% of his races over the past five years, and generating a small level stakes profit.
Song Of Summer - 1 point @ 5/1
