Cash in on Ayr treasure Trova
Cerca Trova should return to Ireland with the lion's share of the prize-money for winning a mares' handicap hurdle at Ayr.
Shrewd Co Meath trainer Jim Dreaper looks to have found a nice opportunity for this 12-year-old, who claimed top honours in a handicap chase at Tramore on her last start on New Year's Day.
Cerca Trova is, however, also a decent operator over hurdles, having won back-to-back races at Fairyhouse and Clonmel this time last year.
She runs off a 1lb lower mark than when successful at the last-named venue and has plenty of archived form when the mud is flying.
Chandos Belle is worth more than a cursory glance when she contests a two-mile handicap hurdle at Leicester. The five-year-old mare is still a maiden after five tries over hurdles, but there are races to be won with her.
Newcastle racegoers can seize an early initiative by supporting Henpecked in the opening mile-and-a-half handicap.
Alistair Whillans' mare has been on a lengthy losing run and has yet to strike on an all-weather circuit in 14 previous attempts.
But there is hope she can finally do the business after catching the eye over this course and distance three weeks ago.
