TOUCH PAPER was considered a possible Queen Mary contender back in the spring but has found 5f too short on her two runs. Tonight she is upped to 7f and with Richard Hughes on board should prove very hard to beat at Kempton (7.00). In the same race don’t be surprised if Assolut, who has been pleasing her trainer, shows improvement. CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT has been knocking on the door and the extra furlong should suit at Pontefract (2.30). Paddys Rock has been pleasing Ann Duffield and could run a nice race. POLAR EXPRESS showed a glimmer of promise on his debut and looks more of a nursery type, but he has been found a good opportunity to win a maiden at Yarmouth (5.20).
And finally BEJEWELED ran a nice first race to be second at Yarmouth and looks overpriced for Lady Cecil at around 7/1 in the 8.00 at Kempton.
