  • Fighter Command to mount big raid

    THE Trade Nation London Gold Cup Handicap has to be everyone's favourite threeyear-old handicap at this time of year as it routinely features horses who are miles ahead of their marks.

    NEWBURY'S London Gold Cup Handicap on Saturday would seem a natural launch pad for King's Gambit's three-year-old season. He had three starts as a juvenile, all of them at Newbury and they included a maiden win at 33-1 and a second in the prestigious Haynes, Hanson & Clark over a mile.

  • London set to tower over his York foes

    Wednesday Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Jorvik Handicap 2.15 York, 1m4f handicap Having trained two of the last three winners of this contest, William Haggas is an obvious trainer to consider and the vote goes to KLONDIKE.
