Fredricka ticks enough boxes to justify
selection in the eight-runner Maiden three-
year-old Stakes over five furlongs at Thirsk
tonight when ground conditions are fore-
cast good for a seven-race programme;
15th time lucky for this Garry Moss-trained
Portents are excellent; top-rated on official
ratings and mount of champion apprentice
Jason Hart, who partnered Fredricka when
she achieved a career-best time-handicap
mark over a similar distance at Beverley as
A model of consistency, but obviously
limited, Fredricka needs only to reproduce
her form and that would seem to be guar-
anteed; given there are three places on offer,
providing there isn t a non-runner, this rep-
resents a professional special
Incidentally Fredricka sported blinkers
for the first time when sixth, beaten just
over a length, in a Redcar handicap last
month; made no difference whatsoever and
they have not been declared for this race.
From this point onwards my naps are
usually two-year-olds but I ve just got to
Kieren Fallon is scheduled for three
mounts, best is undoubtedly Godolphin-
owned Musaddas, nigh on a cert for the
Maiden Stakes over a mile and Penhill looks
a tasty proposition in the three-year-old
handicap over 12 furlongs, a long distance
for second season thoroughbreds.
Penhill needs every yard, is clear best-
in and a trip to this North Yorkshire track
should pay handsome dividends with our
Recently one mentioned that it s plenty
hot enough for thoroughbreds to be sub-
jected to the rigours expected and sure
enough one collapsed just after the line last
week; Kieren Fallon was dumped and sus-
tained a wrist injury which, thankfully,
wasn t serious.
'Fred' ticks enough boxes
Crystal brings up ton for Fanning
A hat-trick for Tom Scudamore stole the show
from Tony McCoy at Newton Abbot as the cham-
pion jockey s wait to reach Martin Pipe s phe-
nomenal record goes on.
McCoy was very much the headline act at the
Devon circuit, requiring just one winner from a
book of four rides to draw level with Pipe s total
of 4,191 career winners, a personal target set by
the incomparable jockey when he passed the 4,000
mark at Towcester last November.
He was widely expected to get the job done at
the first time of asking as he partnered prolific
mare and 3/10 favourite Supreme Present in the
opening At The Races Virgin 534 Novices Hurdle,
but she could only manage a disappointing third
as Scudamore struck aboard David Bridgwater s
hurdling debutant Collodi (8/1).
The trainer revealed he was confident his five-
year-old could cause an upset.
Bridgwater said: "If he did what he did at home
---jump and gallop---he d win. Thankfully he did.
"He s one of those horses that everything he
does is a forward step.
"He s a nice little horse. He s better than a sum-
mer horse, but the boys have been waiting a long
time for him to run."
McCoy was also out of luck on his three sub-
sequent rides and with no National Hunt racing
taking place in Britain on Tuesday, his next appear-
ance in the saddle is likely to come at Uttoxeter
Scudamore, meanwhile, went on to partner the
David Pipe-trained Franklin Roosevelt (7/2) to vic-
tory in the newtonabbotracing.com Handicap Hur-
dle, before completing his treble aboard Bridg-
water s Tempuran (7/2) in the concluding SIS
Bringing Betting To Life Novices Handicap Hur-
"He (Franklin Roosevelt) was back off his last
winning chase mark and he goes on any sort of
ground," Scudamore told At The Races.
"He s a bonny sort of horse, I think that s the
fifth win I ve had on him now, and in his grade
he s tough and he s honest.
"He s obviously been very well placed to win
five, but let s hope he can go in again sometime."
Bookmakers Sky Bet offer 6/1 that McCoy can
go on to win 5,000 career winners.
Dettori set for
Frankie Dettori is set to renew his association
with Wesley Ward this weekend after the Amer-
ican trainer revealed he will use the Italian during
the opening weekend of the season at Saratoga.
The Italian steered the Ward-trained Undrafted
to finish fourth in the July Cup at Newmarket and
the trainer hopes it will be the start of a good
He said: "Hopefully Frankie is going to come
over for racing on Friday and will ride through
"I should have eight or nine horses for him to
ride over the weekend, including an unbeaten two-
year-old called Bessie s Boy, who is down to run
in the Sandford Stakes, which is quite a prestigious
"We ll have a few other stakes horses running,
so it should be a good weekend."
Linda Perratt took a chance in running
Dark Crystal back quickly at Ayr but it
resulted in an 100th winner of the year
for in-form jockey Joe Fanning.
Perratt, who is based just south of Glas-
gow, saddled the filly to finish fourth at her
local track of Hamilton on Saturday evening
but she seems to prefer this west coast
course, as she had also been successful at
last week s meeting.
Stepped back up in trip on a miserable
afternoon, the 11/4 chance just thwarted
Dhaular Dar in the Download The BetVictor
App Now Handicap.
"We ran on Saturday, which was probably
a mistake because the ground was fast, and
over six furlongs with those sprinters she
didn t see which way they were going!" said
"She had won an apprentice race last
week, so we thought we d better cash in
ahead of the handicap. A mile on softer
ground is fine for her and she likes the

Fanning had reached 99 through his most
regular supplier of winners, Mark Johnston,
when Chadic (7/2) made every yard of the
running in the EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes.
"He has come on for each run, the last
time we were taking a big chance with such
a rangy horse at Epsom," Johnston told Rac-
"This track suited him better. The staff
loved him from day one but, frankly, he was
slow coming to hand. He has good breeding
and it s nice to get one on the board."
Fanning made it three-out-of-three in
the colours of the Duke of Roxburghe, who
owns and bred Maracuja in partnership with
the Duke of Devonshire.
The consistent 11/10 favourite, whose
name is the Portuguese for passion fruit
and was inspired by a holiday in Brazil,
comfortably took the Follow BetVictorRacing
On Twitter Handicap.
"That was really nice, she deserved it,"
said the Duke.
"She has been placed five times this year
and second three. Joe said she did it really
nicely and quickened away without any
trouble. She seems to be able to handle any
ground and hopefully she might be pro-
gressive and maybe win another.
"It s really nice to get her to win, she s
the second foal out of the mare, who is a
full-sister to Viva Pataca. Apart from Attrac-
tion, Viva Pataca would be one of the best
I ve ever bred."
Another Scot, Jim Goldie, was on the
mark when 25/1 chance Goninodaethat
made all the running in the BetVictor.com
"He should never have been that price
as he s a course and distance winner," the
Glasgow trainer said.
Escape To Glory (6/) starred in the Insta-
bet App Only At BetVictor Handicap while
the increasingly impressive Megan Carberry
steered home 5/1 chance Eilean Mor by a
nose in the Play Roulette & Blackjack At
