Nuns Walk - Watch Race Replays at Handicap:

Nuns Walk has started handicapping at the right end of the ratings scale on the evidence of her 6f success at Redcar on Wednesday.

Tim Easterby’s three-year-old filly was racing against older geldings but broke well from her middle berth in stall ten and was always moving strongly.

Under pressure two furlongs out, the well-regarded daughter of Sleeping Indian stayed on strongly and won a three-way photo-finish with the promise of more improvement when granted a stronger pace and possibly over further.

She is bred to progress.

Quatrieme Ami - first in the Watch Racing UK in HD Handicap:

On the same card, Quatrieme Ami travelled like a well treated horse when winning the 5f handicap.

Seriously well backed into only 13-8 in a field of 19, Charlie McBride's Newmarket raider was not ideally berthed in stall one.

He showed good pace and was still moving powerfully when coming clear with See The Sun, who had dropped to a mark 22lb below his winning form at last season's Dante meeting at York.

Quatrieme Ami's close second over 6f at Yarmouth a week earlier hinted at a return to form, and Daniel Tudhope's mount duly exploited a rating of just 69- he won off 85 less than two years ago.

Start Time - eighth in the Visit The All New Handicap:

On Thursday, Start Time ruined his chance when slightly missing the break in the 6f handicap at Pontefract.

Impeccably drawn in stall one, the well handicapped son of Invincible Spirit was slowly away, which is never ideal from an inside berth.

Racing keenly and searching for racing room, the capable four-year-old moved well in mid-division and went fourth over two-out but soon weakened.

Very lightly raced after only nine starts, this quality gelding should have little trouble exploiting a mark of 80 when breaking on terms.

Inflexiball - ROA/Racing Post Jackpot Apprentice Handicap:

The following afternoon, Inflexiball spoiled her chance by racing freely in the early stages of the 1m2f handicap at Haydock.

John Mackie's well fancied mare dropped to rear before the home turn but plugged on gamely to pass beaten horses as the leaders tired markedly in very testing conditions.

A mark of 62 is only 4lb higher than the five-year-old's July success at Leicester.

A dual winner in testing conditions, she could pick up a similar race in the autumn.
