TWO RUNNERS AT NOTTINGHAM ON MONDAY.
The going at the time of writing for Nottingham on Monday is currently good, good to firm in places, but with rain expected it could well ease a little before race time.
Quoteline Direct runs in the Female Amateur Jockeys 0-65 handicap over 10 furlongs at 1.20.pm, with Becky Smith retaining the ride. Quoteline Direct looked all over the winner at Ripon last time in the Ladies Derby over 12 furlongs, but he didn't quite see out the trip, and faded in to third place. This step back in distance from a 1lb lower mark is in his favour.
Our other runner is Myboymax who has raced once for us since joining from the Richard Hannon yard. He will run in the 4.15.pm, a 0-70 handicap for three year old's only over 10 furlongs, with Aiden Brookes retaining the ride. Myboymax made a very pleasing stable debut over this course and distance three weeks ago from a 1lb lower mark, staying on to finish fourth, beaten by four and a half lengths. Although he races from 3lb out of the weights, he is a very well handicapped horse on his juvenile form for the Hannon yard.
