take along top-weight of 60 kilos
while stable-mate Whisper Light

The former carries a pennys-
tamp of 46 kilos while Takeone-
for joey will be apprentice ridden

his allowance, he will race with 47
kilos which will make him a diffi-

'Ranger' on the prowl
Forest Ranger will not be a surprise if he
causes another in the group two, £185,700
Dante Stakes over ten furlongs of 'good to soft'
York today; five weeks ago this Richard Fa-
colt stormed home
over the straight
At halfway Forest
Ranger, a 25/1 shot,
was just another run-
ner but Tony Hamilton
got a right response
close home and they
finished nigh on three
lengths ahead of pre-
vious conqueror, Syphax. The time-figure was
tremendous, far better than anything achieved
by any of ten rivals.
Armed with this information we've got to plot
a way through a minefield of form, statistics, and
opinions; Forest Ranger is worth chancing and I'll
bet the Malton 'winning machine' is looking forward
to taking on a clutch of fancied Southern raiders,
which include Epsom Derby favourite, Cracksman,
trained by mercurial, John Gosden.
Looking forward to this and don't worry about
the extra distance because the uphill climb of Gos-
forth Park nigh on equates to a mile and a quarter
Remember when we 'tipped up The Grey Gatsby
for this 'Derby trial!'
Far from the madding crowd a six-race 'twilight'
fixture on the Newmarket Rowley Mile course where
Red Roman is expected to open proceedings with
success in a 2-y-o Novice Stakes over six furlongs.
Eleven days ago Charles Hills introduced Red
Roman on this famous track and was fairly pleased
with fourth (of six!) over the minimum trip. Jamie
Spencer reported afterwards that extra distance
would be required for this Holy Roman Emperor
Spencer isn't available and another former cham-
pion jockey, Silvestre de Souza is booked.
Way Of Wisdom ran on strongly to win, less than
four lengths clear of Red Roman; my time-handi-
cap computation reveals this is just about the best
juvenile form on offer to date.
Half an hour later Mutarabby, one of two Godol-
phin-owned 'decs' which were 'beaten favourites'
last time out, represents a sound each-way bet un-
der Dane O'Neill for a nine-runner 3-y-o Maiden
Stakes over the straight ten furlongs; what beats
Saeed Bin Suroor's charge will win and recent losses
should be recouped.
O'Neill has been a model of consistency down
the years as 'number two' for Hamdan Al Maktoum,
what more could any 'forty-something' jockey
want. Does the job, without fuss.
Fehily was banned for seven days
Noel Fehily was banned for seven days by the
Worcester stewards after being found guilty of
misusing his whip.
Officials inquired into his ride aboard A Three
Eighty, winner of the Eventsi Marquee Hire - Visit
eventsimarquees.co.uk Mares' Intermediate Open
National Hunt Flat Race.
The stewards found Fehily guilty of using his
whip above the permitted level and banned him
from May 31 to June 6 inclusive.
Kennedy taken to hospital after a bad fall
Jack Kennedy has been taken to hospital after
sustaining a suspected fractured femur in a fall at
The rider, who landed this year's Supreme Novic-
es' Hurdle at Cheltenham on Labaik, was unshipped
from Bobbie's Diamond at the last fence in the La
Touche Restaurant Novice Chase.
Dr Bernard Healy, the medical officer on duty for
the Turf Club, said: "Jack was transferred to Naas
hospital with a queried fractured femur.
"It's almost certainly a fracture to the left femur."
