We take a team of four up to Redcar on Sunday, where the going is currently described as good to firm, and they have watered.

First up at, is Myboymax, who will contest the 14 furlongs 0-70 Apprentices handicap, with his regular jockey Aiden Brookes in the saddle. Myboymax is now a very attractively weighted horse, being 8lb below his last winning mark in December, and the way he stuck to his task over a furlong and a half shorter last time, suggests he is ready for this step back up in trip.

Magnolia Hawks makes her second racecourse appearance at, in the seven furlongs maiden, with Aiden Brookes retaining the ride. Magnolia Hawks was green on her first run at Beverley 33 days ago, but showed up well until weakening from over a furlong out, to only get beaten by 12 lengths, suggesting that there are races to be won with her down the line.

The veteran of 84 previous encounters, and six wins, Quoteline Direct is next up at, in division one of the 0-55 handicap over nine furlongs, with Aiden Brookes, who has ridden him on three previous occasions taking the ride. At 10 years old, Quoteline Direct still has the heart to fight out a finish, as he has shown by finishing runner up on both of his last two starts. With a maximum field of 14 declared, he should get the fast pace he needs over this trip.

Irv is another horse who has been knocking loudly on the door lately, when running a seasonal best last time at Nottingham, when going down by just a head, for which the handicapper has left him on the same mark. Irv should also get the fast pace he will probably apprieciate over this trip, at, in division two of the 0-55 nine furlong event, where he will also be partnered by Aiden Brookes, who knows him very well.
