We have four runners on Friday, with three going to Cartmel, where the going is currently good, we are also at Newmarket in the evening, where the ground is considered good to firm.

We are doubly represented at, at Cartmel, in the 0-100 handicap chase, over two miles and five furlongs. Royle Steel who needs fast ground in order to bring the best out of him, should have conditions to suit. Having raced on a soft surface on three of his last four starts, his mark has now fallen to 5lb below his last winning rating. He will be partnered by Jamie Hamilton for the first time.

Our other runner in the race is the grand old servant Onenightintown who also likes a sound surface, although he also goes in the soft as well, he will be ridden by Alice Stevens, who won on him at Catterick back in February. Because of his recent consistency Onenightintown is still 5lb above that last winning mark, and runs over a trip he will have no problem seeing out.

Ingennio arrived at the yard in April having just won twice earlier on in the month at Fakenham for his previous yard, for which he remains 3lb above that last winning mark. He ran in better class on his first start for us, and wasn't disgraced in finishing a 10 lengths fifth. Ingennio runs at, in the 0-110 novices handicap chase, over two miles and five furlongs, with Emma Smith-Chaston on board for the first time.

At Newmarket, Thursday's Child will take her chance at, in the 0-85 fillies handicap, over six furlongs, with Sean Levey taking the ride. Thursday's Child was the winner of her first two races, and then backed that up in handicap company with a solid fourth at the York Dante meeting. Her one below par run came last time back at York, when she failed to fire for the first time.
