Racecards
Chanson D'Amour
Racecard

Chanson D'Amour and Little Prayer have both come close to getting off the mark in their previous appearances on the track. The former is preferred to prevail here, particularly now he has the cheekpieces on for the first time. He was only a length behind in third place on her latest effort at Windsor over this distance. Unlike many of his rivals, he has experience on his side and looks open to further improvement.


Mister Bluebird
Racecard

Mister Bluebird has done very little wrong so far this season. This horse has improved considerably since he was gelded last November. He came close to his second victory of the season when he was second of eight runners at Windsor over 5f earlier this month. Heather Main's runner was staying on strongly so he may appreciate this stiffer test over 6f. He remains off the same mark as that near miss so the handicapper has given him an excellence chance.


Eeh Bah Gum
Racecard

You have to back to August 2018 for the last time Eeh Bah Gum was victorious. He has fallen down the weights since then. This six-year-old's last performance was much better as he was only 1½ lengths behind the winner. The handicapper has eased him again in the weights to a mark which is 13lb below his last success. It won't be long before this horse wins again and with the cheekpieces on here for the first time, it could come on this card at Nottingham.


Wildcitydiva
Racecard

In what was her sixth attempt on the track, Wildcitydiva got off the mark on her latest appearance at Ripon (1m2f). It was a smart performance as she won going away from her rivals. The handicapper has given her a 2lb rise in the weights and that is unlikely to be enough to stop her from following up over the same distance. The opposition to Tim Easterby's filly does not appear very strong so there is no doubt she is the one to beat.


About Nottingham Racecourse

Situated just north of the River Trent in Nottingham, the racecourse actually has two tracks. One of them is used during the spring and autumn, the other is used during the summer. They are not the most testing of racetracks as the bends are shallow with minimal undulations on the course. National Hunt racing used to take place here until it was put to a halt in 1996.

There are three listed races over the course of the season, as well as the Nottinghamshire Oaks for fillies and mares in early summer. Over the last few years the racecourse has hosted 27 meetings per year and an average total of prize money of £50,000 per meeting. Overlooking the Colwick Marina and River Trent, Nottingham Racecourse is very picturesque and not many walk away having had a bad day.
