Tizlove Regardless took a few starts to get the hang of thing but now he is on a roll, he is hard to oppose in the Follow At BetVictorRacing.com On Twitter Handicap at Kempton.
Mark Johnston’s charge still holds an entry in the Investec Derby and while that is probably flying a bit too high with this son of Tiznow, this latest London Middle Distance qualifier appears more his level.
Five outings in 2013 yielded little joy but given a break, this scopey type appeared to have notably strengthened up when he returned to action on the all-weather last month.
While he managed to do enough for a two-and-a-half-length verdict, Tizlove Regardless did not seem to have learnt much in his previous outings as he still appeared pretty green as he edged a little right in the finish.
The handicapper felt that moderate win merited a 6lb rise and Tizlove Regardless made light work of his increased burden and a step up in trip when claiming a clear-cut success over Zamra earlier this month.
A further 7lb hike has since been imposed but Tizlove Regardless certainly does not lack for size and appeals as a horse with plenty of improvement still to come as he continues to learn his trade.
Sparkling Ice will have to step up on her debut effort is she is to claim the Download The BetVictor App Now Median Auction Maiden Fillies’ Stakes, but there is every hope she will do just that.
Related to Group-race winners, Sparkling Ice was slow to break on her first outing and was beaten nearly 10 lengths in fourth at line.
She should be much wiser for the experience here, though, and this does not seem to be an outstanding event.
Zamra’s form ties in nicely with Tizlove Regardless and she merits respect in the 32Red.com Handicap at Wolverhampton.
Out of a multiple Listed-winning mare, Zamra has inherited a modicum of the family talent, as evidenced by her Lingfield maiden win in February.
That event was nothing to write home about but she showed she can be competitive off this sort of mark when beaten a length and a half by Tizlove Regardless.
There is a slight suspicion Zamra could improve again for a step up in trip but James Tate clearly feels it is worth persevering at this sort of distance for now, and the hint should be taken.
Tate has another likely type in Hallouella, who contests the 32Red Immortal Romance Slot Handicap.
She is making her handicap bow following three attempts in maiden company, hitting the frame on the two most recent occasions.
Hallouella looks sure to be suited by this kind of distance judged by her staying-on third last time.
Maahir should go well in the Ladbrokes Maiden Stakes if he can build on his recent fourth at Kempton.
He unseated his rider on his racecourse bow so his subsequent effort should offer some much-needed experience.
Solstice Son can notch up his hat trick in the 32Red Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow.
Trainer Anthony Honeyball made no secret of the fact his yard went through a bit of a barren spell earlier in the campaign but his runners certainly seem to be firing on all cylinders again now.
Solstice Son has proved just that with two wins already this month, triumphing at Plumpton before backing up just five days later when winning at Fontwell last Saturday.
While neither event was particularly strong, Solstice Son made short work of his rivals at Plumpton and managed to overcome a stumble to claim victory at Fontwell.
His momentum was checked a bit that day, but he got back in the groove to fend off the runner up by the best part of four lengths.
He has to carry a 7lb penalty here but that still leaves him reasonably well in on the ratings and Honeyball is clearly keen to capitalise on his charge’s good form before the handicapper can have his say.
Bobble Boru may have been a slightly fortunate winner on her most recent outing but she is taken to follow up in the Barrels Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Ludlow.
Twice a winner at the start of the season, she was pulled up when returning to action in February but made amends when running out a length-and-a-quarter winner at Exeter at the start of March.
The favourite did not really fire that day but Bobble Boru jumped well and found plenty, which gives plenty of hope for this assignment.
