Today’s teasers…

“He hated the soft ground at Sandown last time. He’s down to a very decent mark and if repeating his run from Newbury two runs ago, he will have a major chance.”

Brendan Powell, De Bruyne Horse

“Charmed Spirit should have come on for his debut and is a horse to follow. We hope for a bolder showing today.”

Jonathan Portman, Charmed Spirit

“It’s been hard to get the trip right with him, so we’re bringing him right back to 7f to see what he can do. He’s got first-time blinkers on and is down to what should be a handy mark.”

Charles Hills, Lifeboat

“Dropping him back to a mile as he didn’t quite get home last time.”

Owen Burrows, Zaajer

Winners

Lambourn’s recent successes

Chitra (13/8F)

7.15 Newcastle | October 17

“Chitra two wins and two seconds in last four starts, looks to have a great chance again with the most likely dangers the handicap debutants.”

Daniel Kübler

Monbeg Theatre (11/4F)

4.20 Wetherby | October 17

“Monbeg Theatre won his last two races in style and is unexposed as a staying hurdler. He’s fit and well and although he has more weight here in a competitive race, I look forward to seeing him back on the track after his summer holiday.”

Jamie Snowden

Lough Derg Spirit (4/9F)

2.45 Wetherby | October 17

“He has schooled well at home but had a difficult time last season and I am just hoping he is ready to bounce back.”

Nicky Henderson
