News in Brief

Amo Racing move King Of Steel from Varian

Roger Varian confirmed on Saturday that owners Amo Racing no longer have horses in his yard in Newmarket. The announcement comes only days after Varian’s stable star King Of Steel, owned by Kia Joorabchian’s Amo operation, was ruled out for the summer when he was found to be lame after working on Tuesday. 

Sunday evening racing scrapped in Britain after failure to hit betting turnover target

Sunday evening racing will not be implemented in Britain after a six-meeting trial this year produced lacklustre punter engagement and negative feedback from participants. Trainers, jockeys and stable staff were united in their approval of the decision by the BHA board not to extend the trial, albeit the BHA said the initiative could be revisited “when circumstances allow”.

Roger Teal dreams of Derby bid for Dancing Gemini

Roger Teal is daring to dream he might have a legitimate contender for the Betfred Derby in the shape of Poule d’Essai des Poulains runner-up Dancing Gemini, who will have a dress rehearsal on Epsom Downs on Tuesday morning.  Teal and owner-breeder David Fish are keen to leave the Derby on Saturday week and the Qatar Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly 24 hours later on the table for Dancing Gemini, who failed by just half a length to hand the Lambourn trainer his first Classic success in the French 2,000 Guineas.

RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS

8:40 Windsor, 20th May

Caramay

William Muir & Chris Grassick

Caramay looks good at home, she will come on for her first run but this is a weak race, so hopefully she will show us something.

PRICE 9/2
5:15 Newmarket, 19th May

Noodle Mission

Edward Smyth-Osbourne

This is Noodle Mission’s first run on turf for us. He runs off a 5lb lower mark than on the all weather so if he can replicate his recent form he should go close.

PRICE 12/1
12:00 Newmarket, 19th May

Woodhay Wonder

Tom Ward

She has a lovely affinity with Newmarket [has won her last two races on the Rowley Mile] and we’ve been keen to wait for this race. She worked really well this week and hopefully she can run another nice race. It’s a competitive event, but I still feel we’re playing with something in terms of her handicap mark.

PRICE 2/1F
7:30 Aintree, 17th May

Captain Morgs

Nicky Henderson

Captain Morgs is very unpredictable but we are trying him back over fences to see if it amuses him.

PRICE 11/1
