The Class2 Totepool Flexi Betting Handicap at York over 5f saw Johannes raised 6lb to 101 for the 1 length win from Jaconet who was in turn raised 3lb to 95, she will still be a force to be reckoned with in the Dash if this weeks exertions havent taken there toll.

Of those behind Oldjoesaid was dropped 1lb for his encouraging run to 92, Red Cape down 2lb to 84, he may prefer 5f, Sunrise Safari 1lb to 86 and Himalya 2lb to 100.
The Class 4 Replas Concrete Repair and Refurbishment Handicap at Doncaster over 6f went to Tubby Isaacs who was raised 6lb to 76, however the 2nd Leonid Glow up 2lb to 78 and 4th Anne of Kiev no change on 75 were both finishing best of all and can gain compensation.

Jargelle was dropped 2lb 90, Tabaret 1lb to 89 and Pavershooz 2lb to 87. The latter is once again becoming well handicapped if he shows any improvement from last season.
The following Class 4 Filey Handicap over 5f went to the improving Sirenuse who has been raised 4lb to 83 and if she can get into the Dash at Epsom she would help force the pace even more, although there are so many front runners in that it may go to a hold up horse, so start having a look at the declared runners and check out the early prices.
