Race 6 – Chepstow 1:50am

5. Go Amber Go: Raced six times without success as a three-year-old in her first season in 2015, but she really clicked when making a winning return in a handicap at Bath last week, and now looks set to make up for lost time.

Go Amber Go did have the added assistance of good-value 7-lb claimer there, and doesn’t have that here, but she still look well treated under a 6-lb penalty and ought to take plenty of beating.

Race 5 – Doncaster 5:10am

4. Fendale: Made eye-catching late headway when sixth in the six-furlong Pontefract handicap won by Johnny Cavagin last week and probably would’ve finished closer but for encountering traffic problems at a crucial stage, so he looks a good bet in this similar race, with the step up to seven furlongs expected to suit him.

Fendale was short of room briefly early in the straight that day and stayed on well inside final furlong, without being given a hard time at all, and he’s interesting from a mark of 90.

4. Shakopee: There could be better to come from Luca Cumani’s Shakopee, who is the least exposed of the runners in this 10-furlong handicap and the cobwebs ought to have been blown away following a couple of runs in May when returning from an absence of more than 12 months.

Shakopee has raced rather freely on both his outings this year, which is a slight concern, but Jamie Spencer taking over in the saddle could be a help in that regard, as should the presence of prominent racers Goodwood Mirage, Mountain Rescue and Freewheel in opposition.
