Clint Hutchison: Hong Kong – It has been a lean start to the season for 13-time champion jockey Dougie Whyte but he has a couple of sound chances to open his account and the pick of those is Supernatural in the Yau Tong Handicap (Race 3) at Happy Valley.
London – It was hard not to be impressed with the taking debut of Il Primo Sole at Yarmouth last month and he can take the next step up the ladder in the Max Patel Wealth Manager Of Choice Conditions Stakes at Sandown.
Nicci Garner: Tap O’ Noth might only have a merit rating of 96, making him 13 points inferior to top-rated contemporary Mustaaqeem, but he might well have fallen under the radar and looks to have a feature win in his future.
ALLL NIGHT FLIGHT
Jack Milner: Trainer Roy Magner might have pulled off a very shrewd move by engaging apprentice Mpumelelo Mjoka to ride All Night Flight in Race 7 at Turffontein on Tuesday, a MR 80 Handicap over 1000m.
London – Mohsen is an intriguing contender as he switches spheres in the 188bet.co.uk Handicap at Chepstow. Out of luck in four maiden starts so far, Marcus Tregoning has opted to embark on the handicap route as this half-brother to Temple Meads seeks that all-important first success.
