ANDREW BALDING

Spanish Angel can make a swift return to action pay dividends in the Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap at Windsor on Monday.

Andrew Balding’s charge is saddled with a 3kg penalty after his win five days ago – a victory that appeared most unlikely inside the final 200m

Spanish Angel looked held in second by Glamorous Anna, only for the front runner to jink in the shadow of the post, losing valuable momentum and handing the advantage to the Gutaifan gelding, who made no mistake in triumphing by a head.

While he could be deemed a lucky winner, Spanish Angel has nevertheless been making strides with every outing and some of his weight rise is offset by useful 2.5kg claimer William Carver taking over from Oisin Murphy.

On a course he clearly likes, Spanish Angel should be on the shortlist again.

Up and coming trainer Tom Clover has started the season in great nick and can bag another winner courtesy of Broughtons Gold in the Download The At The Races App Handicap.

The selection was himself a recent winner at Newbury, doing it quite comfortably at that. Still unexposed after just three career starts, he looks to have more to give yet.

Quickstep Lady can demonstrate her winning moves in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.

Unplaced in two juvenile outings, Quickstep Lady was not beaten far by the well-touted Stylistique on her return at Newbury earlier this month.

While she proved no match for the winner or second-placed African Dream, Quickstep Lady kept on at her own pace in the final 200m and a repeat of that level could be good enough.

Al Watan made a fine start to his career with a second at Newbury and can improve on that in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Novice Stakes.

Beaten 1.50 lengths by First Prophet, Al Watan is certainly bred to stay further than the 1400m he tackles here.

Proud Archi makes a swift reappearance in the Paul Morris “Moz” 50th Birthday Celebration Handicap at Thirsk.

Second at the track on his seasonal return last week, he was staying on late in the day to grab second, beaten 1.25 lengths at the line.

He relishes this1400m and given that was his first outing for 324 days, he should take a leap forward, as long as he can avoid the bounce factor. – Press Association
