Tommie Beau
Racecard

Tommie Beau broke his maiden in style at Plumpton (3m1f) earlier this month, scoring by 12 lengths. The margin of victory was much shorter at Hexham on his follow-up attempt just five days ago as he was on the right side of a photo-finish. Seamus Mullins' runner has gone up 3lb in the weights ahead of this hat-trick bid but he should be taken to defy it and continue his excellent form in May. This horse acts on all ground conditions so the going will not be a problem for him.


Top Beak
Racecard

With two wins from his last three outings, including a C&D success, Top Beak is very much at the top of his game at the moment. His chances have been given another boost in this race as Bryony Frost is on board for this assignment. He does have a 5lb penalty to defy, but he seemed to really enjoy it around this course. Expect to see him given a patient ride before working his way through the field in the final stages of the 2m4f contest.


Storm Rising
Racecard

This is a great opportunity for Storm Rising to get back to winning ways as he is taking a big step down in class and is now off a mark which is 1lb lower than his last success. Dr Newland's runner has recorded five victories over hurdles. He was contesting a class 2 contest just last month. If he is anywhere near his best, he will have far too much quality for his rivals in this small-runner field as the opposition does not look very strong.


Begin The Luck
Racecard

After back-to-back victories at Southwell, both of which were over this 2m trip, Begin The Luck is bidding for a hat-trick in the final race of the card at Fakenham. This horse has only had seven races under Rules so there could be a lot more to come. He has been given a 7lb rise in the weights following his last success earlier this month. The five-year-old was staying on strongly at the finish in his last appearance so take him to get the better of the handicapper once again.


About Fakenham Racecourse

A fixture of the East Anglian racing scene since 1905, Fakenham is easily the tightest national hunt track in the country. The course’s sharp left-handed turns mean those horses with longer stride lengths can be caught a little unbalanced around the bends. That being said, a lack of stamina can often find horses out here too, with the track often riding softer than many other courses.

Fakenham’s seasonal highlight comes during it’s Spring National Hunt meeting in March, with the Fakenham Silver Cup offering up a first prize of over £12,000.
