A busy start to the week with three runners. Two on the level at Windsor and one over jumps at Southwell.
Dame De Ruban is first up in the 3:05. This trip will be on the sharp side for Dame but it will help serve a purpose for chasing next time out. The run will bring Dame De Ruban forward.
This evening at Windsor, Nikolayeva is our first runner in the 5:30.
Eva needs a bit of help from the handicapper, she's slowly coming back to a rating she can win off but is paying the price for winning a few times last year. The ground has come right for Eva but she'll likely find a few with more speed than her over 1m4f.
In the lucky last, Vocatus takes his chance. The ground could be in a bad way come this race. St George's Bay has been very well backed on handicap debut, he might be a hard nut to crack with Oisin Murphy booked.
Vocatus will be fine on the ground and should hopefully handle it better than most, he'll run his race.
