We have two runners on Tuesday, with Expert Lady declared for Beverley, where the going is currently described as soft, and Patasola who runs at Nottingham, on what is currently soft, good to soft in places.
Expert Lady has now had three runs, and will make her handicap debut at 5.25.pm, in the 0-70 handicap, over the extended seven furlongs, with Cam Hardie retaining the ride. Expert Lady has looked very green on all of her three starts to date, and after missing the break at Newcastle on the latest of those runs, she did make a little late headway, but in all probability, this race will also be needed to give her further education.
Patasola makes a quick return to the track, just six days after finishing 10th at Catterick. Patasola ran over five furlongs that day, and was readily outpaced until making a little late headway, so this step back up to six furlongs is a plus. Six of the nine runners are making their handicap debut, so the chances are Patasola will find one or two of them more progressive, but she has already shown form on a softer surface, so that shouldn't be a problem. She goes to post for the 6.55.pm, in a 0-60 nursery handicap, with Aiden Brookes retaining the ride.
