Frustratingly Border Patrol is a non runner due to the ground changing to good to firm, it certainly has not been a year for horses that need soft ground and I read that it is now officially the dryest spring for over a century.
Excavator runs in the 6.20 pm at Kempton where I hope he will have a good chance although I notice that the unraced Mitie Mouse is bred to have plenty of speed and cost £50,000 at the recent mid April Kempton breeze up sales, so should be respected. His form at Bath has been endorsed by the winner B Fifty Two winning a Novice at Newmarket and the 3rd horse Verbeeck finishing 2nd at Leicester last week and 4th horse Selinda won the seller at Yarmouth yesterday.
Sea of Light runs in the 6 furlong fillies maiden at 8.20pm, she is a tough filly who runs with blinkers on and it will be interesting to see how she runs.
Marzante runs in the following race, the mile handicap and wears blinkers for the first time which I hope will produce a more determined performance than last time, being by Maria's Mon, the all weather should suit him and his full brother Monzante won over the course.
