EVERGREEN DUNGANNON SET TO EXPLOIT HIS MARK AT SOUTHWELL

SPECIAL RELATION ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 4 January)

Hughie Morrison’s colt would have given odds-on favourite Auberge Du Lac plenty to think about if he had enjoyed a better run through off the home bend.

Special Relation was checked at a vital stage and the winner had flown before Charlie Bennett could get his mount back on an even keel.

This was Special Relation’s third run and he is worth watching in handicaps.

DUNGANNON ATR Tracker
(Southwell, 5 January)

Despite turning 10 years of age, Dungannon is no back-number.

Andrew Balding’s venerable sprinter has a good record on Fibresand and travelled into the race strongly only to be denied by tenacious The Big Lad.

Dungannon has fallen to his lowest mark since his three-year-old days and will continue to be competitive at Southwell.

HEARTSTONE ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 6 January)

Finished runner-up for the fifth time but did nothing wrong in chasing home big gamble Absolute Blast.

Heartstone, having her first run in a couple of months, worked her way to the front over a furlong out before the winner swept past and in-form David Evans could find her a race in the coming weeks.

DON BERSY ATR Tracker
(Sandown, 7 January)

Tom Symonds must have been disappointed when his ex-French recruit fell on debut at Warwick in early December but Don Bersy more than made up for that lapse when disposing of long odds-on shot Coeur De Lion.

His juvenile led two out and there was no fluke about this success, the pair pulling clear.

MOUNTAIN ANGEL ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 7 January)

Stepped up on his debut fifth at Newcastle three weeks earlier, splitting Fear The Fury and well-backed favourite Kencumin in the seven-furlong maiden.

Jack Mitchell did well to overcome a wide draw, grabbing the initiative before being headed a furlong out.

The principals clocked a respectable time and winners at a minor level will come out of this contest.

SUMMER ICON ATR Tracker
(Lingfield, 9 January)

Mick Channon’s filly has returned from a 193-day absence in good form.

Summer Icon built on two solid placed efforts at Lingfield in recent weeks, winning this fillies’ handicap with some authority.

Things didn’t pan out perfectly either, with Summer Icon settled in rear by George Baker off only a sedate gallop then forced wide on the home bend.

She found a smart turn of foot to sweep past on the outside and can win again.
