A good debut from Trinity River and thoughts on tomorrows runner and a non-runner

Trinity River looks to be a promising filly after a lovely debut at Salisbury this afternoon (26th of June). She learned plenty from the race and was really getting the hang of things towards the end and should be a fun filly for the summer.

Unfortunately Sherman McCoy is a non-runner tomorrow  (27th of June) in the 5.50 at Yarmouth  after knocking a leg and will need a couple of easy weeks before hopefully returning to action.

That leaves us with Monopoli in the 8.40 at Leicester. Darren Egan returns to the plate hoping to repeat last months course win over an extra two furlongs in the mile and a half handicap. She has had a couple of minor niggles in between but seems back to her best and we hope can deliver in a return to handicap company. She has been a little frustrating and seems to need things to fall just right for her but does look well handicapped if she gets it right. There is a small amount of rain forecast which would be in her favour so fingers crossed it arrives in time.

The race looks a tight knit affair with the consistent Spanish Plume setting a reasonable standard but it is Cornish Beau who has looked good since his return to the flat on his last two start who may have the most to offer if he can recover from his run five days ago.
