Magic can happen at Folkestone

SEEKING MAGIC is one of the more interesting animals on show at Folkestone and should be followed in the Live Pool Information At totepool.com Handicap.

Clive Cox does well with his sprinters, and this lightly-raced four-year-old showed enough last season to suggest he could become a decent animal this term.

He will have to step up now off a mark of 82, but if he can win here the future looks bright.

Market support for Subtle Knife in the Hyder-Collins Easter Chicks Median Auction Maiden Stakes is likely to be significant. The Giles Bravery-trained filly was well backed on her debut at Southwell in October, suggesting she had been showing plenty at home. In the end, the money went west by an agonising neck, but she is obviously thought capable of holding her own.

Sulis Minerva did not enjoy the run of the race at Lingfield last time and should go close in the Follow totepool On Facebook And Twitter Handicap.

Iron Condor is a tentative selection in the Claydon Horse Exercisers Handicap for James Eustace. The five-year-old had a couple of outings over hurdles, to not much success, at the back end of last year, but is not on a bad mark returned to the level.

Evan Williams' Lancetto has been set some stiff tasks this season but the Alfa Aggregates Products Novices' Chase at Ludlow looks easier and despite giving away weight, a reproduction of his fourth in a £25,000 race at Doncaster or when third in the Grade One Henry VIII at Sandown would be good enough.
