Rock ready to roll out another Salisbury win

BRETON ROCK made a perfect start to his racing career when winning at Salisbury and he can take another step up the ladder back at that track tomorrow.

DAVID SIMCOCK'S charge was |a comfortable victor despite looking pretty green when opening his account in August. The Bahamian Bounty colt only really started to motor after three of the six furlongs had been run and he looked good value for his length-and-a-quarter margin at the line.

Breton Rock looked as though any cut would suit when he won that day, but good ground should not be too much of a problem here.

Vectis lost all chance of winning with a slow start at Sandown last time but compensation awaits in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Molson Coors Novice Stakes.

Despite previously winning at Chepstow, Harry Dunlop's charge did not look to have learnt that much for the outing as he dwelt at the off.

He was making up ground hand over fist in the finish, though, suggesting there is still plenty more to come from this Pastoral Pursuits gelding.

There are plenty of decent maidens on show at Nottingham and Kalispell is certainly one to note as she makes his debut for Mahmood Al Zarooni.

A three-parts sister to multiple Group One winner Mamool, she could well be good enough in the first division of the EBF Double M Catering Challenge Maiden Fillies' Stakes.

Ninjago should find the Book Now For Jump Sunday 21.10.12 Novice Stakes at Kempton a little easier than his most recent task. Pitched in against the well-regarded Ashdan at Doncaster last time, he was beaten just over four lengths in fourth.

His previous Chepstow win and a Listed third at Newbury demonstrate the ability Richard Hannon's charge does have |and while he might not be top rank, this should be a winning opportunity.

The ground at Newcastle looks likely to be testing, but that should prove no problem for Bravo Ragazzo in the Racing To School St Benets Primary School EBF Maiden Stakes.
