Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to our penultimate meeting of the season at Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse. It is a quick turnaround for us following our great Bank Holiday Family day yesterday and we’re looking forward to another afternoon of fantastic racing sponsored by At The Races and Sky Sports Racing. Our third race on the card today is the 21 Engineer Regiment Sapper Nursery. Today is our local regiment’s annual visit to us, a tradition which has been in place for over 30 years now (last year being an obvious exception) and we hope they all have a fantastic day with us. Incredibly we have just one meeting remaining in our 2021 season! Where has the time gone? Please do join us for our season finale on Saturday 25th September when gates open at midday with the first race at 2.20. Very best of luck for this afternoon and we hope you have a wonderful day. JAMES HUTCHINSON Managing Director

TODAY’S TIPS RACE

1

SELBY’S PRIDE has improved with every start to date and she was only beaten a neck when finishing second over 5f at Beverley last time. If she can take another step forward, the daughter of Lethal Force should be hard to beat. Lucy Lulu has plenty of experience and is an obvious threat to the selection. The rest look to be up against it, but Miss Belladonna is arguably the pick of them.

WIN: SELBY’S PRIDE

RACE

2

YANKEE STADIUM only found one too good off a mark of 74 in a handicap at Newmarket two starts ago and he should be hard to beat at this sort of level. She’s No Angel put in a career best when scoring at Musselburgh last week and she may have more to offer this afternoon. Little Ted and Gone Mod are others who merit consideration.

WIN: YANKEE STADIUM

RACE

7

DANGER: MARK’S CHOICE

Saisons D’Or drops in class after a poor run at Thirsk but a hood is applied and if he can repeat the performance of his Ayr second in June, he is a force to reckon with. Antagonize battled back to win at Beverley and has a great attitude, but AVAILABLE ANGEL ended a run of placed efforts with a victory at Yarmouth and with her 6lb penalty offset by Kieran Schofield’s 5lb claim, can go in again.

WIN: AVAILABLE ANGEL

RACE

DANGER: STRAWMAN

Mark’s Choice posted a career-best effort when triumphing in the Great St Wilfrid consolation race over C&D on his first run after a wind operation. The five-year-old could follow up but preference is for I AM A DREAMER, who has a 5lb swing in his favour having finished fourth on that occasion. Pivoting is still relatively lightly raced and there could be more to come after a short break.

WIN: I AM A DREAMER

RACE

DANGER: AYLING

Strawman arrives in pursuit of third successive victory and the four-year-old merits the utmost respect, although a 5lb rise for his most recent triumph looks fairly harsh. With that in mind, C&D winner BRIARDALE gets the nod to land the spoils having been dropped 2lb for his most recent effort. Bollin Margaret couldn’t make an impact in a tough contest at York but she is another to consider in calmer waters.

WIN: BRIARDALE

RACE

DANGER: SHE’S NO ANGEL

SHAMLAAN won well on his nursery debut over 5f at Musselburgh a month ago and the progressive son of Mehmas may be hard to stop once again. Ayling hit the crossbar at Beverley two starts ago and he should not be underestimated, while Mereside Angel and Qwicken are others who are capable of going well in a very competitive contest.

WIN: SHAMLAAN

RACE

DANGER: LUCY LULU

DANGER: SAISONS D’OR

Spantik is interesting down in class after a five-length fourth at Carlisle and he could go well off 1lb lower, but NEAR KETTERING arrives on the back of a clear-cut win over timber when sent off favourite at Market Rasen. Back on the Flat, he appears nicely treated and can follow up. Haizoom has been holding his form quite well, may have more to come, and is another to consider.

WIN: NEAR KETTERING

DANGER: SPANTIK

STAR RATING EXPLAINED Each horse has been given a star rating, these are defined below: HHHHH Selected to win the race. HHHHI Good chance of being placed. HHHII By no means out of the reckoning but at least one or two hold stronger claims HHIII Unlikely to win but not totally without hope. HIIII Can be given little or no chance.

OFFICIAL BHA RATING The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part in a sufficient number of races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). The ratings published in the racecard for handicap races are the ratings that were used to calculate the weight to be carried by each horse, whilst in non-handicaps races the rating shown is that of each runner at the time that the entries for the race were confirmed. Any subsequently published change to a rating, either up or down, is shown in brackets following the rating.

PLAY SMARTER

If SELBY’S PRIDE can back up her latest Beverley second she’s likely to take plenty of stopping. Lucy Lulu has a string of fair efforts to her name and looks the main threat ahead of Les Eyre’s Lady Ardad, who may improve with a run under her belt.

THIRD RACE 2.00 THE 21 ENGINEER REGIMENT SAPPER NURSERY HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 5) for two yrs old Total race value £6900 Owners Prize Money.

A nursery is a handicap that is restricted to two-year-olds only. In order to be allowed to take part, entrants must have already run in three maiden or novice races, or have won two races, which then qualifies them for an official handicap rating based on what they have achieved so far. Quite simply, the higher their rating, the bigger the weight they have to carry. This particular five furlongs race is for horses which have been rated from 0 to 70.

MERESIDE ANGEL has caught the eye in his qualifying runs and gets the nod to make a winning start in nurseries for the David Barron team. Shamlaan had a bit up his sleeve when scoring on his Musselburgh nursery debut so he’s feared most. Gnat Alley and Jen’s Gift also rate possible improvers now moving into handicap company for the first time.

RACE DESCRIPTION

This is a one mile and two furlongs handicap race for three-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 61 to 80. In a handicap the weight that each of the runners carries is determined by their official handicap rating which is based on their level of form shown so far. The aim is to ensure competitive racing by asking the higher rated horses to carry more weight than a lower rated rival. As a guide, horses rated 40 tend to be at the lower end of the scale whilst the very best performers would be rated as high as 130.

PLAY SMARTER

STRAWMAN made it 2-2 for new connections when getting on top close home at Carlisle and, still unexposed at 9f/1 1/4m, he may well have more to offer. Karen Tutty’s charge is taken to complete the hat-trick, perhaps at the chief expense of Sudona, who went close off this reduced mark over 1 1/2m here last time and dropping back in trip won’t be an issue. Briardale is the pick of the remaining trio.

SIX FURLONGS

This is a six furlongs handicap race for three-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 61 to 80. To qualify for a handicap rating horses must have run at least three times in a Flat race in Britain, or have run in no more than two Flat races run in Britain and won at least one of them. This rating then dictates the weight to be carried in a handicap. In simple terms a horse rated 75 in this particular race would be required to carry 5lb more than a rival rated 70.

about ONE MILE

This is a one mile handicap race for three-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 51 to 70. Once a horse has qualified for a handicap rating this is regularly reassessed. A below-par effort could result in a reduced rating whilst a strong performance could see the rating increased. Occasionally, horses are entered to race before their handicap rating has been reviewed and so to avoid recent winners being un-penalised they are allotted a mandatory penalty – usually 6lb.

RACE DESCRIPTION

This is a two mile and handicap race for three-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 46 to 60. Like most handicaps on the flat this race is also open to horses that are rated below that particular band. However, all handicaps stipulate a minimum weight and no runner can carry less than that, irrespective of how low their rating is. This is often described as ‘running from out of the handicap’ and is considered a disadvantage.
