Notebook: Horses to follow May 24

IT’S been another good week for this list and there’s a debrief at the bottom of this article on how our horses to follow have fared… But, first, this week’s list.

SEA OF GREEN: Showed her inexperience by falling out of the stalls and losing plenty of ground on only her second run at Redcar over 7f. But she fairly flew home despite hanging badly left, finishing a close third. It was a fairly remarkable performance and she should be noted closely next time out.

CINDERS: Made a lovely debut at Windsor behind an easy winner, staying on to finish second and this £150,000 purchase looks nailed on to win races over 5f and 6f for Hughie Morrison.

MAKING SHAPES: There was a lot to like about the way this Makfi colt won his maiden at Newcastle, making all the running and winning with a tonne in hand. He seemed to appreciate getting his toe in and he is a fine prospect for Peter Chapple Hyam.

LADY CLITICO: Ran a fine first race for Rebecca Menzies, keeping on well over a trip that was probably a little short. A consistent dual purpose horse for Charlie Swan in Ireland, she should pay her way in staying handicaps this season.

DARRELL RIVERS: Her form figures don’t inspire but this filly got no sort of run in a handicap at Lingfield when about to make a challenge. Worth a second look next time out.

SIGHORA: A nine-length winner on Kempton’s Polytrack last December, she ran a solid third on her reappearance last week over the course and distance and should strip fitter next time.


SEAMOUR, who was highlighted last week, won really well at 15/2 at Haydock on Saturday and looks primed for a good season. The Northumberland Plate could well be on his agenda.

FERRYOVER got off the mark at 9/4 although he dead-heated with a useful newcomer of John Quinn’s.

MISS KATIE MAE won at 5/1 for Ger Lyons at the Curragh on Saturday, confirming the promise of her debut and she will now be targeted at bigger races.

RISK ADJUSTED was second for the third successive race after being nailed on the line. Frustrating but he is worth sticking with.
