14:10 (Nottingham) General Assembly

General Assembly sets the standard in the opening Come Racing At Nottingham Racecourse Maiden Stakes.

The three-year-old was a well beaten favourite on his sole juvenile start in Ireland for Ger Lyons and was subsequently gelded and sent across the Irish Sea to join George Boughey.

The son of Starspangledbanner has looked like a winner in waiting in two novice starts so far this spring, going down by a neck at Southwell on his first start for his new trainer before being beaten three-quarters of a length into third place at Kempton.

With William Buick in the saddle for the first time, he can make it third time lucky in the Midlands.


15:40 (Nottingham) Worrals

Worrals was off the mark at the third attempt two weeks back on soft ground at Goodwood when a narrow winner of a 1m maiden.

This progressive filly.rates highly and could score again in the Abba Fever July 6th Book Now Handicap.

Yaajooz went well at Yarmouth a month ago finishing a good third in a 1m maiden. May go close again with handicap experience.

Phoenix Duchess showed ability here recently managing a 2.75L second in a course and distance handicap. Continues at the same level and holds every chance.

Alvesta is open to further progress after a break with Oisin Murphy booked, so could grab a place.


16:40 (Nottingham) Reyaadah Star


Reyaadah Star bolted up at Kempton three weeks ago and can follow up in the Dine In Sherwoods Restaurant This Season Fillies’ Handicap.

Charlie Johnston’s filly made a fairly inauspicious start to her career when unseating Daniel Muscutt at Southwell, but proved she has a degree of ability with a couple of decent efforts in defeat on her next two starts.

She was prohibitive odds to make the most of what looked a gilt-edged opportunity on her most recent outing and did so in some style, making virtually every yard of the running and pulling seven lengths clear of her rivals without being extended.

Making her handicap debut off what looks a workable mark of 72, Reyaadah Star should be hard to beat on her first start on turf.


17:45 (Nottingham) Patronage

Patronage showed plenty of ability at Beverley when second attempting a 1m2f handicap. This progressive three-year-old could find more improvement and rates highly.

Givitawhirl is an unexposed three-year-old making handicap debut. Steps up in journey and warrants a market check.

Similar comments can be applied to Penalty Shootout who has Murphy in the saddle, so will be of interest.
