LOCAL trainers have been busy firing in the winners and they look like being out in force at Chepstow’s Friday evening meeting.

The David Evans stable went four days without any runners last week, which is unusual, but since resuming they’ve made up for lost time with three winners.

Renny’s Lady had gone close twice in May before scoring at Sandown on Thursday.

Harry Beau won at Chepstow last month when making all the running and at Brighton on Friday Silvestre de Sousa employed the same tactics on the horse with the same result.

Back at Brighton on Monday Cherubic won for the second time since being bought out of the Charlie Hills yard in January.

The Ron Harris stable had a couple of winners over the weekend.

David Probert partnered Glamorous Rocket to an all-the-way victory at Wolverhampton. By all accounts she barely stays five furlongs, so her options are limited. Her owners Robert and Nina Bailey have Just Glamorous and Glamorous Dream running in their colours too.

A two-year-old called Country Rose was another all-the-way winner for the stable on Lingfield’s turf course. Her chance was materially improved by nabbing the stands rail. The yard isn’t known for its juveniles, but this filly’s form figures are now 221.

Grace Harris sent Bungee Jump to Newmarket on Saturday for a £25,000 race. Raised six pounds for his Chepstow win last month, he came an honourable third. He 'went down fighting' according to the Racing Post’s analysis, which added 'the form has a solid look'. Those comments will be music to the ears of connections who claimed the horse for £10,000 three months ago and have won it back in prize money already.

Twice a winner in May, Harris’ Mooroverthebridge is entered at Chepstow and Bath over the weekend. So is Tally’s Son, who was a 66/1 shocker at Chepstow three weeks ago. Don’t confuse this one with Tally’s Song, in the same ownership, who could reappear after a six month break. This one is yet to win a race in 28 attempts.

A newcomer to the stable is Asking A Lot, a five-year-old who won a mares maiden point-to-point in Ireland last month. She could be started off in a 2m5f novices hurdle at Newton Abbot on Friday.

Nikki Evans has quite a few entered this weekend and one group of her owners, the Dare To Dream Syndicate, are looking forward to seeing Maroc run. He was second at Newbury last time out. Even though he hasn’t won any of his 25 races, he’s been placed on 10 occasions and his turn may not be far away.

They also hope to run Canadian Royal, and if you ignore his last outing he has been pretty consistent. He is entered in the Robert Stephens Racing Club Supports the IJF Handicap.

Stephens has Confident Kid entered in that race. More immediately, the horse runs in the 5.30 at Yarmouth tonight. As it’s a race for apprentices, if he was to win he could run at Chepstow two days later without a penalty.

Last week we noted how well Stephens’ horses were running, but without any luck. Yet another example occurred last Wednesday when Street Jester, who’d shown no form before, finished a one length third in a two mile flat race at 66/1. He will be a shorter price next time out, thanks to that improved effort. Despite being by Avonbridge, who was best over sprint distances, stamina is his forte.

Avonbridge stands at the Oakgrove Stud across the road from Chepstow racecourse, where this Friday evening’s seven-race programme is followed by a concert given by the Counterfeit Stones.
