In The Notebook: Additions before Derby weekend

The Derby and Oaks are quickly approaching, HTF will have everything you need ahead of the weekend’s epic meetings. Meanwhile who should you be keeping an eye out for in the coming weeks.

Clemmie (Third in a 6f maiden at the Curragh on Sunday)

A Ballydoyle colt that should wet anyone’s appetite. He was only defeated half-a-length on his debut, in what was a good performance and he’ll certainly be up to striking in maiden company. He may divert straight to pattern company, either way this full-brother to Churchill has an exciting future ahead.

Billesdon Brook (Second in a 6f maiden at Sailsbury on Saturday)

This was our NAP on Saturday and it was gutting to see him go down by a length at Sailsbury. He will win a maiden soon enough, and he will attempt to try in the coming weeks. He’s well-bred, improving and set for success soon.

Medahim (Second in a 7f handicap at Goodwood on Saturday)

Was a long way off in the ratings when narrowly denied at Goodwood on Saturday, but this nice-looking colt should be a lot better than a mark of 91. He’ll win plenty of races and could be a promising handicapper to follow for Richard Hannon.

Champagne City (Won a 2m maiden hurdle at Kelso on Sunday)

One for the jumps fans, this well-bred Tom George four-year-old kick started his jumping career when notching up an easy success at Kelso. He posted some very strong flat form, and was impressive on only his second start over hurdles; he’s certainly one that could continue progressing.

Mori (Won a 1m3f listed race at Goodwood on Thursday)

This exciting filly was part of our terrific Thursday, where we had a 100% record with our tips! Mori picked up well and showed real quality, as her exciting pedigree suggested she should do. She’ll win races, and can easily compete in higher level races for the master middle distance handler Sir Michael Stoute.
