3.40 Yarmouth – Boughey & Buick teams up with newcomer Mantra
George Boughey and the Highclere Racing team have teamed up with some extremely talented fillies of late, neither has Cachet, last year’s 1000 Guineas star, and they hope Mantra can reach similar heights.

6.50 Southwell – West’s Noahthirtytwored can continue his smart progress
There are seven jumping contests to enjoy from Southwell on Wednesday where Noahthirtytwo looks well placed to score for the second time on fences in the Download Fitzdares free Race Streaming Handicap Chase (6.50).
The seven-year-old from Adam West recorded four wins over hurdles between April and July last year, apparently enjoying the good summer ground, as was also the case in his 10/1 win at the from his early hunting days in Newton Abbot.
After being thrown deep at Cheltenham next time out topping his odds of 100/1, West gave his runner a nice break and a strong performance behind Raffle Ticket at Worcester last time out should have put him on the right track.
The main challenge may well come from the winner of the course and the distance Mr Tivowhich ran well when it reappeared over hurdles last month.
