Timeform’s Tony McFadden highlights a Nap, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Leicester on Sunday.
Dorisa Queen – 15:30 Leicester
Dorisa Queen didn’t make much of an impact for Warren Greatrex but she made a successful start for Dan Skelton at Stratford last month, proving a fair bit ahead of her mark as she pulled four and a quarter lengths clear. She has a 7 lb higher mark to deal with here but she remains unexposed for this yard and likely still has more to offer – it is encouraging that her dam quickly reached a fairly useful level of form over hurdles during a light career. The continued good form of the Dan Skelton stable is another positive.
Presuming Ed – 14:30 Leicester
Presuming Ed was disappointing during his time with Philip Hobbs and he made an unpromising start for Adam West as he proved difficult to ride and was effectively pulled up on the Flat at Nottingham. He shaped with more promise back over hurdles at Sandown, though, finishing fifth in a maiden, and then proved that effort was no fluke when scoring in handicap company at Market Rasen recently. He channelled his energy better than is usually the case and saw his race out better as a result, winning by two and a three-quarter lengths. He has a 6 lb higher mark to deal with here but he is in the groove at present and has been found a weak race that he can dominate.
Seaborough – 15:00 Leicester
Seaborough arrives on a long losing run that stretches back to December 2019 and comprises 21 starts, but he has been in good form of late and ran up to his best when runner-up at Uttoxeter last time. He travelled well over two and a half miles at Uttoxeter, making smooth headway coming out of the back straight, and that effort offers encouragement that he will be suited by this drop in trip. He has been left on the same mark and looks capable of registering an overdue success.
