RUBAN ATR Tracker
(Chelmsford City, 18 March)
Has adapted well to the track and made a valiant attempt to supplement his course victory of 13 days earlier. Ruban locked horns with Vivat Rex, the pair drawing clear, but succumbed by half a length. Stuart Williams has his gelding in top form.
 
ROCKY RIDER ATR Tracker
(Chelmsford City, 19 March)
Andrew Balding's three-year-old son of Galileo fairly routed odds-on Monein, making all and stretching clear under Andrea Atzeni. The colt will be interesting when switched to turf.
 
ON THE TILES ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 20 March)
John Fretwell's three-year-old has proved a frustrating sort but the application of a visor almost did the trick as On The Tiles only gave way close home. The winner, Pyrocumulus, has been in great form and there was a six-length gap to the third.
 
RACING EUROPE ATR Tracker
(Kelso, 21 March)
Well-backed beforehand, Racing Europe appeared to have matters in hand when still travelling strongly two out but was ultimately run out of it marginally by the rallying Milansbar. Brian Ellison's six-year-old remains lightly raced and could pick up a decent prize before too much longer.
 
WICKHAMBROOK ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 23 March)
Rather lost his way since winning a Warwick maiden for Ismail Mohammed back in October 2013 but this was a much better run. Returning from a 222-day absence for Mike Murphy, Wickhambrook travelled kindly on the heels of the principals but didn't hit full stride until just too late.
 
TIZLOVE REGARDLESS ATR Tracker
(Wolverhampton, 23 March)
Mark Johnston may have reached for first-time blinkers in an act of some desperation but they certainly appeared to perk up his colt. After a long, barren spell in the doldrums, Tizlove Regardless looked something of a lost cause. However, his latent talent re-emerged here as Joe Fanning set him about his business and the race looked in the bag as he entered the straight holding a decisive advantage. Although eventually worn down close home, Tizlove Regardless didn't shirk the issue and, hopefully, he can build on this rejuvenated effort.
