14:33 (Leicester) Calyxoh

Calyxoh showed plenty of promise debuting with a head second contesting a six furlong novice event at Newmarket and has a top chance set to go one place better here.

Mapledurham did well when resuming three weeks back out-running massive odds to be a good 3L third in a 6f maiden at Newbury. This is an easier contest, so has a big chance.

High On Hope makes for plenty of appeal following a decent second on debut at Bath in a 6f maiden. Open to plenty of progress.


15:33 (Leicester) Under Siege

Under Siege can be considered most unfortunate to come up against a couple of formidable foes so far and deserves a change of luck in the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.

Andrew Balding’s charge made an eyecatching debut when staying on to finish second of 17 at Newbury and that form received a significant boost when the winner Economics bolted up by six lengths in the Dante.

It was a similar story at York for Under Siege, as the son of Wootton Bassett kept on to fill the runner-up spot behind impressive scorer Lead Artist, who is now being talked about as a Group One prospect.


16:03 (Leicester) Reaching High


Reaching High is regally bred in more than one respect and looks ready to start upholding family honour in the Racecourse Live Streams On Racing TV Extra Handicap.

The son of Sea The Stars is out of 2013 Ascot Gold Cup winner Estimate, a mating put together by the late Queen Elizabeth II.

He carries the colours inherited by the King and Queen and appears to be heading in the right direction this term after lacking maturity as a two-year-old.

Reaching High returned to action with a solid sixth behind Harper’s Ferry in a hot Windsor maiden that has worked out well and then showed plenty of promise when second on his handicap debut at Chelmsford.

Primo Lara proved just too good that day but there is no disgrace in that, as he followed up with a comfortable triumph in a higher grade at York despite being handed a 5lb uplift.

Sir Michael Stoute still has a bit of work to do with Reaching High judged on the way he reared in the stalls before that last start, but the gelding clearly has potential and moving up in distance should help his cause.


17:08 (Leicester) Alfred Cove

Alfred Cove brings solid placed form including a good second among this company over 6f at Chelmsford City last month and rates a leading contender in the Ronan Keating Ladies' Day Saturday 15th June Apprentice Handicap.

Liberty Bay often runs with credit including a solid fourth contesting a six furlong handicap at Bath three weeks back.

Mrs Trump scored at Redcar on penultimate start tackling this handicap standard over five furlongs before a Ripon sixth, so could bounce back to best.
