(Doncaster, 29th March)
The William Hill Brocklesby can usually be relied upon to throw up more than its fair share of early two-year-old winners and Flyball possesses the physical scope to step up on his third place. Flyball was quite easy to back on course and Jimmy Fortune gave the colt an educational introduction which can reap its reward.

(Stratford, 29th March)
A dual Yarmouth winner for Ed Vaughan last year, Kelvingrove is now in the capable hands of Jonjo O'Neill. The four-year-old son of Hurricane Run, having his first run in 198 days, ran away with this novices' hurdle, despite racing lazily at times, and had laboured odds-on shot Massena cooked turning for home. There is probably more in the locker.

(Doncaster, 29th March)
On a day when it proved wise to race up with the pace, Sweet Lightning made up a deal of ground from the rear, only to flatten out in the final 100 yards, finishing fourth to Ocean Tempest. Rated 112 in Ireland last year, this former Irish Lincoln winner raced here off 98, so Sweet Lightning should remain competitive in these cavalry charges. The Newbury Spring Cup would seem an obvious target if there is some ease in the ground.

(Doncaster, 29th March)
Having scored on good to firm ground at Pontefract in August, contrasting underfoot conditions on Town Moor were an obvious concern. Richard Fahey's four-year-old did well to finish sixth under these circumstances and this progressive gelding is worth noting in the Dr Marwan Koukash silks in the next few weeks.

(Doncaster, 30th March)
Quite a useful mile handicapper for Ralph Beckett (successful at Kempton and Windsor), Killing Time found the step up to 10 furlongs beyond him in the race won quite cheekily by Rudi Five One. Killing Time was produced with a perfectly-timed run by Jim Crowley but soon hit the wall and back-pedaled. The stable is in good nick.

(Kempton, 31st March)
The Ballymacoll Stud and Sir Michael Stoute have forged a fruitful relationship over the years and Arab Spring should be another money-spinner this season. The four-year-old did well to beat unexposed three-year-old Arable in his 10f maiden and will stay further in due course. Arab Spring was coltish in the parade ring but knuckled down professionally to the task in hand.
