No winners last week but a couple of nice seasonal debut runs after long lay offs – firstly by Naomi Lapaglia yesterday in Deauville, one of my favourite tracks in the world and always a great day out. A cracking ride from a poor draw by the GOAT Ryan Moore, she just lost out in a photo for 3rd place. She will come on bundles for the run and looks to have an exciting second half of the season ahead of her.

Likewise the lightly raced Fool’s Gold placed fourth after 10 months off the track up at Haydock on Saturday – we will definitely see some improvement from him as his season progresses.

Also up at Haydock the earliest of our 2-year-olds, Sex on Fire, made his handicap debut and was a shade unlucky finishing second whilst trying to defy top weight although the winner looks to be pretty useful.

This week we start today with homebred Little Lies looking to improve on her debut third place up at Ripon.

We then move onto one of my favourite meetings of the year – The Newmarket July Festival.

Day 1 – Thursday – Two Tribes runs in the £100k 6 furlong Handicap. After a seasonal opening second place at the Guineas meet, he ran respectably from a poor draw in The Palace of Holyrood House at Royal Ascot. Stepping back up to 6 furlongs and with the form of his opening run behind James’s Delight working out tremendously he could be an interesting runner.

Hot Like Me holds an entry also on Thursday in the 6 furlong fillies maiden, and the 7 furlong race on Saturday. A pleasing run on debut in no less than The Chesham at Royal Ascot I’m really looking forward to seeing her back against her own sex.

Day 2 – Friday – Waiting All Night looks to be heading for the 7 furlong handicap (also entered on Thursday) , a pleasing 2nd place last time out over course and distance, he’s definitely showing an aptitude for the track. Run Boy Run also holds an entry in the same race along with a similar engagement at Ascot on Saturday. The exciting Good Good Good (George Boughey) bids for the hat trick on handicap debut in the 5 furlong race

Day 3 – Saturday – Hot Like Me in the 7 furlong maiden should she not run on Thursday.

Elsewhere Warriors Dance (George Boughey) holds entries at Kempton and Ffos Las on Wednesday, whilst Wonderwall heads to Uttoxeter on Tuesday and Roll With it a possible for Stratford at the end of the week.
