David O’Meara is always dangerous in a big handicap and Estad’s opening mark of 65 looks far too lenient here. The son of Dubawi bumped into a more experienced, decent Godolphin runner last time out, but there was plenty to like about the performance as he found plenty under pressure to pick up the minor honours. That was a big step forward and you would imagine there will be more to come from this one as he gets a few more races under his belt. He’s well drawn here and market support could be a good indication of his chances on the day.

Not On Your Nellie

Back on quick ground, Not On Your Nellie bounced back to form at Catterick to land the spoils. The way she came from the back of the pack to win cosily suggested a filly of some class and she still well could be ahead of the handicapper off a 10lb higher mark here. Faye McManoman is eligible for her 3lb claim here, so that will negate that rise in the weights to some degree and Nigel Tinkler could be on to a good sort here. Ballintoy Harbour is the obvious danger and we quite simply don’t know how good she could be, but she’s not been given much leeway by the handicapper.


Charlie Hills doesn’t send too many to Redcar and while his strike rate might not be envious here, it’s still worth paying attention to this Mukhadram gelding. He was a distant third last time out but it was clear to see he was still learning on the job on only his second career start and the way he stayed on into third suggested there could be more to come. The winner that day has since run well at a higher class, so the form looks decent enough and if taking a step forward here he could be a solid enough each-way play.


Alnajeeb represents top connections here and the way he finished off his race last time suggests the extra two furlongs will play to his strengths here. He fluffed his start that day and was clearly better than the result suggested so we’ll surely see a better performance here. Mark Johnston’s yard hasn’t been firing with it’s usual authority but this son of Sea The Stars looks fair value to get his head in front here. Carn A Chlamain looks the Exacta play but is up against it at the weights.

About Redcar Racecourse

Based in North Yorkshire, Redcar’s perfectly flat track was opened in 1870. It is a left-handed oval shaped course with tight bends making positioning critical. It is widely believed that Redcar is the only racecourse in the UK with a perfectly “Straight Mile” that is level.

The racecourse is situated one mile from the beach which makes it a wonderful escape for a weekend. Redcar hosts the Zetland Gold Cup in May, the Two-Year-Old Trophy in October which is also on the same day as the Guisborough Stakes. The well-known Limato was a previous winner of the Two-Year-Old Trophy.
