Three meetings but not a lot to work with but I’ve five rated races below and several very much “OF INTEREST”.
Someone asked me recently what had happened to Sir Mark Prescott. I simply said, “he’s waiting for the ground to come right for flat racing. today he saddles his first runner of the season in the Windsor 7-10….I hope you have those 20 to follow tracker horses sorted out because I imagine he’ll be looking to get busy now.

MY PLAY – My top one has, if I’m reading this correctly, a minty old draw to work from and I’m inclined towards the three highest rated horses bearing icons. I’m all over SPRAY TAN 20/80…(did you see what I did there?), but will set up the dutch and exotics to help pay for it, if prices permit.
