Nice to start the turf season with winner. Monday's claiming bet on Takealookatmenow winning nicely at 7-2 for £210.00 profit .
Moving on to Wednesday's racing ,we have some quality action with the start of Newmarket's craven meeting ,with highlight on Wednesday being Group three Neil Gwyn stakes for three year old fillies at 4.05
4.05 NEWMARKET 7F NEIL GYWN STAKES GROUP THREE
14 runners declared for group three Neil Gwyn over 7 furlongs on good ground .The four main contenders being Sky Lantern ,Lady Nouf ,Nargy's & Winning Express .
SKY LANTERN : Won three races last season ,including winning group one Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh in September ,looked unlucky in Breeders Cup Juvenile turf at Santa Anita on her last start when badly hampered .Should go well for in form Richard Hannon stable .
LADY NOUF : Won 7 furlong maiden at Leicester in October ,looks open to plenty improvement as three year old ,though takes big step up in class .Stable in good form .
NARGY'S : Progressive filly last season ,improving with each run .Finished the season with good second in group two Rockfel Stakes over C&D at Newmarket .Looks open to plenty improvement this season .
WINNING EXPRESS : Won two out three last season ,including 6 furlong listed race at Salisbury in September .Finished good second in group one Cheverley Park stakes at Newmarket on her final start .Should be suited by this longer trip and open to improvement .
VERDICT : SKY LANTERN has to concede 3LB to all her rivals here ,though looks the class act after winning group one Moyglare & finishing excellent second in group three Sweet Salareo stakes behind the unbeaten filly Certify .Richard Hannon has his stable in top form with 9 winners already this month .Odds around 3-1 look very fair value in this group three contest.
Of the others Nargy's looks open to plenty improvement this season ,though Luca Cumani runners are very rarely at there best this early in the season .
Winning Express looks sure win more races this season ,the step up in trip should suit ,though trainer Ed Mcmahon hasn't had winner since December .
Lady Nouf won what looked decent maiden at Leicester on her only start ,that form looks solid with second & third both winning fair races next time,though she takes big step up in class,Should go well for inform William Haggas .
