Rock has the seal of approval


Seal Rock has stand-out claims in the Racing Post Weekender Out Every Wednesday Handicap at Doncaster.

Raced just once as a two-year-old last year, Henry Candy's sprinter has made solid progress this season, including a fine performance when second under top weight in what was a solid race at Goodwood earlier in the month.

In another stride he would have won, and the handicapper's decision to raise him 2lb might not be the end of the world.

Drying ground would suit in South Yorkshire and the suspicion remains we have not seen the best of him just yet.

It will be some training feat if Roger Charlton can get a seventh win on the bounce out of Camberley Two in the Bentley's Gentleman's Club Doncaster Handicap.

But the booking of Jamie Spencer, allied to the step up in trip, suggests the Beckhampton trainer believes there is every chance of doing so.

Parisian Princess steps out of maidens to tackle the Sir Gerald Whent Memorial Nursery at Newbury and has every chance of breaking her duck on her fourth run.

George Baker's filly bumped into a potentially useful one in Misdemeanour at Kempton, with Richard Hannon's runner backing up that impression in a subsequent win.

It is also worth noting Baker has opted for this race rather than what looked a simpler option at Doncaster.

Tanaami is worth another chance in the Play Rainbow Riches At bluesq.com Fillies' Handicap.

A promising winner on her debut, the daughter of Elusive Quality disappointed next time out but could be counted an unlucky loser when last seen at Nottingham, being slowly away but finishing strongly.

Double Trouble has shown enough in two starts to give her every chance of getting home in front in the Wolverhampton Holiday Inn Median Auction Maiden Stakes. Marco Botti's filly should be suited by this longer trip.

Ivestar remains feasibly handicapped and hopefully Paul Hanagan can persuade him to put his best foot forward in the Enjoy The Party Pack Group Offer Classified Stakes.

Former 110-rated hurdler Court Red Handed bids to make it two from two over fences in the SIS Handicap Chase at Fakenham and should be followed.

Still relatively lightly raced, there is every chance he could make up into a smart performer over the bigger obstacles.

The Flemensfirth gelding is ideally suited by a sound surface and promises to see this extended three miles out well.
