Mahanakhon Power

An apprentice contest to kick things off at the seaside on Sunday afternoon and one in which Mahanakhon Power appeals as the strongest candidate for success under in-form pilot Adam Farragher. After joining Mick Appleby from Andrew Balding, Mahanakhon Power has won twice already this season, scoring here over 1m3½f in June and obliging again on the all-weather at Chelmsford last week over 1m2f. His main market rival should be Mostaqqer, who came close to a first turf success at Beverley over shorter recently, but the proven stamina of the selection could be a decisive asset now.

Finest Sound

Andrea Atzeni is enjoying a good spell in the saddle lately, entering this weekend with a 26 per-cent strike-rate from 38 rides in the previous fortnight, and he'll be in the familiar Al Maktoum silks on Finest Sound here. The 4YO shaped with plenty promise at Doncaster four weeks ago when third home on his first attempt at this 1m2f trip and there should be more to come from him at the distance. He can wear down likely pacesetter and dual C&D winner The City's Phantom.


Just three runners in this nursery and it presents a good opportunity for Brian O'Rourke to land his first winner since taking out his license in the spring in Lambourn. He's got lots of experience in pre-training and is noted for his patient approach. Banshee was one of the promising 2YOs he reported to be amongst his fledgling team and races in the familiar colours of owner Bjorn Nielsen. Her three novice runs have been promising and she starts life in nurseries now from a mark of 75 with more to come and first-time cheekpieces added. Ray Dawson rides and Banshee meets a pair of colts that both underperformed last time out.

Media Guest

The George Margarson-trained Media Guest caught the eye at Windsor recently over 6f on his second start post wind surgery.  He was making his first foray into handicaps and, having opened at 13/2 in the betting, went off as big as 22/1. He belied that drift to finish a close-up fifth of ten having made what appeared a menacing move into contention early in the home straight. That form is strong, with the winner successful in both starts since and the third also a next-time-out winner. Eased 1lb in the ratings, this gelded son of Belardo should make a decent fist of things in the Yarmouth finale.

About Yarmouth Racecourse

For a course with just one Listed race on it’s calendar, Yarmouth has played host to some top flat racing performers over the years. The likes of Dubai Millennium, Ouija Board and Raven’s Pass have all tasted success in Norfolk as two-year-olds.

It hasn’t all been that high class at Yarmouth though, in the course’s early days events such as donkey racing and pig chasing were held at the venue. These days it’s thoroughbreds only at the course, with a number of summer flat cards on the calendar.
