It must be Musaanada at Yarmouth
MUSAANADA can secure a valuable turf success in the Norfolk Chamber Of Commerce Handicap at Yarmouth.
Being from the family of Fame And Glory and a daughter of Sea The Stars, Musaanada clearly already has a hefty paddock value that can only be further enhanced by success on the track.
Despite being a relatively late arrival on the racing scene, Musaanada made an ideal start for William Haggas when landing an average Kempton maiden last month, breaking slowly but staying on well over a mile and a half.
The form of that win might not stack up to much, but an opening mark of 75 does not look insurmountable for this 235,000 guineas purchase.
Santorini can make a winning start in the handicap sphere in the Optimist Design Ltd Handicap.
Henry Candy’s charge made quite an impression on his belated racecourse bow at Windsor earlier this month, winning by a length with the minimum of fuss.
That was far from the best race run at the track this year, but Santorini still managed to prevail despite doing little to help himself by taking a strong early hold.
The handicapper has awarded him a starting perch of 75 and he can make strides from there.
Shutter Speed is another wellbred individual and it will be disappointing if she does not take a hand in the finish of the Breeders Backing Racing EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes.
Multiple Australian Group One winner Foreteller features in her family tree and as a daughter of Dansili, hopes will surely be high for the John Gosden-trained filly.
Mister Manduro had plenty of options in the coming days so it is perhaps telling that Mark Johnston has plumped for the Parklands Mini Golf Team Building Events Maiden Auction Stakes at Newcastle.
As his name suggests, this colt is a son of Manduro and with just one start under his belt to date, he looks the type who will progress with time.
Third at Sandown on his debut, Mister Manduro fluffed the start completely that day but once back on an even keel, he ran on in a most pleasing fashion.
This looks an ideal opportunity to get a win on the board tackling a mile once again.
All eyes will be on The New One as he makes his fencing bow in the 188Bet Best Mate Beginners’ Chase at Exeter.
A top-rank performer in the hurdles division for the last four years, he fell short on the big days last term and it did look as though his years were perhaps catching up a bit with him.
It therefore makes reasonable sense to have a cut over fences and this two-mile-one-furlong heat looks a suitable starting point for Nigel Twiston-Davies’s runner.
