Cajun Fiddle got rid of the week-end blues when landing the odds at Southwell yesterday, and, hopefully, the team can continue on an upward curve at Warwick tomorrow, where we have three runners.

Alan said:”Midnight Maestro is a tall, rangy horse who was a bumper winner at Doncaster last season and is ready to kick-start his jumping career in the novice hurdle. We like him a lot.

Royal Plaza goes for the conditional jockeys handicap hurdle. He pays the penalty for being so consistent in that he keeps running well but repeatedly goes up the handicap, despite being beaten. He is now 8lb higher than he was two outings ago without winning, so that is frustrating.

Passing Call, who runs in the bumper, is a sister to Passmore and this has been her target for some time. I hope that she, too, will run well.

Meanwhile, at Kempton we run First Mohican in the two-mile handicap. He is now back up to his highest mark, having gone up 4lb for finishing such an excellent second in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket last month. He enjoyed a marvellous turf season and Hollie Doyle gets on very well with him, though he is not easy to catch right as his wins are few and far between. Off 102 it will be tough, but he gives his owners a lot of fun and long may it continue.

“We also give Just in Time his third run in the maiden there. He is a May foal and has been given plenty of time, but he has the plum draw (stall one) and Hollie aboard, so who knows.”
