Cecil Frail Stakes Tips & Betting Preview

Henry Candy had a fruitful day yesterday and will be hoping that can continue into the weekend as BOUNCE makes her second run this season for Landmark Racing. She capped off last season with a career best when improving to finish third in a very competitive handicap at Newmarket in July, only beaten around a length in a bunched finish. Her return this season was equally as promising, finishing third in the Kilvington Stakes after staying on strongly and she should be much better for the run. This is obviously tougher but she has imrpoved with every run and she remains with a huge amount of potential for a yard who are just starting to hit form. Fergus Sweeney takes the ride and she has a very good chance of taking victory in this.

A winner of four of her seven starts for William Haggas, Gravity Flow nearly made it four wins in a row at Newmarket on her latest start back in October. Winner of a competitive fillies’ handicap on her penultimate start, she one again took a step forward when narrowly denied in listed company at Newmarket in October, finishing second to Kassia with that form holding up well. She returns from 231 days off the track but she still remains with potential as a lightly raced four year old who was highly progressive last season for a yard in blistering hot form. Conditions are to suit and the equally in form Pat Cosgrave takes the ride, so another big run looks on the cards as she can go well fresh.

She was however behind Futoon on that run, with that four year old perhaps lacking the potential of that rival but she is entitled to be involved all the same for Kevin Ryan. She has won twice from twelve runs, with her best effort so far being that second at Nottingham earlier this month in listed company, headed towards the line in unlucky fashion. She has to be shortlisted on the back of that run with Joe Doyle taking the ride, as conditions remain to suit and she still may have improvement left in her at this stage of her career.

A commentators nightmare, whoever has the job of calling the action at Haydock will have the privilege of trying to get the name Go On Go On Go On consistently right throughout the race. The Clive Cox trained four year old won four times last term for connections, winning her penultimate start at Bath comfortably as the well backed favourite. Although she failed to get involved on her latest start in listed action at Doncaster, she never looked happy and it would be no surprise to see her improve again on return this time around. She ran reasonably well on debut so should go well fresh and with conditions to suit and the in form Adam Kirby taking the ride, she looks dangerous.

With only three runs under belt, Florida Times does need to step up on what she’s shown thus far, but that is entirely possible for connections that currently having a good spell. Breaking her maiden at Cork at the second attempt over at Cork when still with the Adrian Joyce yard, she made his debut for his current yard David O’Meara in a Newbury listed race, finishing third. She certainly needs much more if she’s to be competitive but she remains with scope for progress, though there would have to be a concern about this better ground. Martin Lane takes the ride and she looks a potent each way threat if take another step forward
