image-left-align track-bias-diary-v2All-weather surfaces can do odd things in the warmer months and that was certainly the case at Wolverhampton last Monday where prominent racers enjoyed a massive advantage. It’s rare for a pacesetter to score over the longer trips at Dunstall Park but 33-1 shot Howardian Hills made all in the 1m4f classified claimer and the other winners were described as ‘made all’, ‘chased leaders’, ‘soon led’, ‘always prominent’, ‘soon led’ and ‘chased leader’.

image-left-align track-bias-diary-v2DI ALTA (stall 8 of 8) went into may tracker after she ran well against the pace bias at Nottingham on her comeback, going down by just four lengths in fifth after a slow start in a 1m2f handicap. The others who ran well from off the pace that day – the winner Harebell and fourth home Three Duchesses - have won since off higher marks. Di Alta’s only subsequent turf run was another eyecatching effort, this time at Doncaster where she hit the front too soon on a track that favours those ridden patiently. She can get off the mark for the season when she tackles the 1m4f EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Fillies’ Handicap at Windsor tonight (6.45).

He did best of those drawn in single figures and fourth home Ballet Concerto, not ideally berthed in stall 11, landed the John Smith’s Cup at York next time.
