SUNDAY WEEKENDER

15:45 Leicester Dark Power aroused the attention of the handicapper after bolting up at Nottingham and must overcome a nine pounds rise in the weights to follow up that decisive victory here. From the shrewd Clive Cox yard it would be no great surprise if he proved much better than this grade in time, you do wonder however, quite how the handicapper saw fit to be quite so excessive. Pennsylvania Dutch flopped last time after missing the kick when tackling seven furlongs at York, prior to that he had shown a fair level of ability and though I have concerns he may be a little quirky, it is unlikely the handicapper has his measure yet and he is taken to lower the favourites colours. Pennsylvania Dutch (Win)

17:20 Leicester Despite having only moderate recent form figures, Racing Angel has plenty in her favour here and her recent second at Yarmouth was a step in the right direction. Angel Palanas remains a maiden after ten starts but has shown enough ability to land one of these, his third at Doncaster reads well in the context of this and his yard are firing. Kings Academy also looks a player but having already proven herself a winner here and in better company, Racing Angel is taken to bounce back. Racing Angel (Win) NAP
