I’VE had a bit of time off and now that I’m back, I’m raring to go once again.
The break has done me some good and I can feel the winners in my toes.
2.30 Goodnight Mr Tom – Mark Johnston continues to bang in the winners and his two-year-old clearly improved for a gelding operation when hosing up at Hamilton last time.
That was his handicap debut and although a 7lb rise is a touch on the harsh side, he should have enough progress in him to handle it after just four starts.
This a weak race with most either out of form or yet to show much and he should take this before going on to better things.
Bully's Monday Bankers
5.15 Terri Rules – Four-year-old’s turn looks near after two seconds, most recently behind a very well-handicapped horse from the David O’Meara yard who has since bolted up.
Her mark remains unchanged and back on the all-weather she should be a more potent force, provided she can get across from her wide draw.
She’s one of few in good nick and, dropping back to 5f, she’ll be finishing stronger than most.
6.30 Indian Raj – This should be relatively straightforward for Stuart Williams’ five-year-old, who won nicely dropped into this grade last time.
He’d been contesting better races than this previously and clearly has another win in him off just a 3lb higher mark.
He was only just denied at the track on debut and should go one better now.

6.40 So Lonely – Dan Skelton’s mare found life a bit tough at the Galway Festival last time but these are much calmer waters and she can get back on track.
A 4lb higher mark than for winning well at Warwick in the spring should be stomached easily enough and she could be too progressive for these.
