DAVID Evans has one of the busiest horses on turf in his stable, Heer We Go Again.

This aptly-named two-year-old has run five times in six weeks, showing steady progress as his form figures of 0322 suggest. He added a 1 to them at Bath on Monday, when sent off 6/5 favourite against some modest, less experienced opponents.

The 3,000 euro purchase was conceding five pounds to most of his rivals, but bounced out of the stalls quickly and found the fast going was no impediment. He led all the way and won by four lengths.

Evans told the Racing Post afterwards: “The first time visor has helped, as it seems to have concentrated his mind that little bit. I'm not sure he is up to defying a penalty so we might go down the seller route.”

He has one in mind at York in June, which offers £20,000 of prize money.

His filly Chasanda, who unexpectedly won a race at Windsor when her better-fancied stable companion was withdrawn at the start, competes in the Lily Agnes Stakes at Chester today. After that Windsor victory she was fourth in a Class 2 at Newcastle, running keen early before dropping back. Today’s race is tough as well, with four other previous winners in the field. Nevertheless, if she gets a good break and jockey John Egan can keep a bit in reserve she might sneak a place.

Three runs down the field last autumn left Evans’ filly Lady Reset with an official rating that didn’t look obviously lenient, but she showed it was perfectly satisfactory at Chepstow on Friday. Coming off a six month break to make her handicap debut, she was prominent throughout the one mile race, staying closest to the stands rails. Urged into the lead two out, she was soon in command and won by almost three lengths, defying odds of 20/1.

Local trainer Ron Harris also had a winner on that card, with Brother Bentley. He’d shown a few signs of ability since coming back from a break and this day he broke his duck, stepped up to six furlongs. With the aid of first-time blinkers, he took the lead two furlongs out and quickly gained a clear advantage. He ran again at Bath on Monday, but could only finish fifth. Perversely, his stablemate Thegreyvtrain ran one of his better races to come in second at 25/1.

At the same odds Glamorous Crescent, who had shown little as a two-year-old, made his debut for Grace Harris and finished third. In the same ownership Just Glamorous, another horse recently transferred to her, went down by a nose at Goodwood on Saturday.

Friday’s Chepstow card concluded with a race for Arabian-bred horses, which came to a picturesque climax with two handsome greys fighting out the finish. Racing returns there on Tuesday, 14th. Anyone travelling to the course from the north should note that the A466 is closed between Tintern and St Arvans, and is expected to remain so until near the end of June.
