Luca can turn Scru on his rivals; Racing preview.


AFTER runs at Ascot and York, Scrupul might find life a bit easier in division one of the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Stakes (12.40) at Redcar tomorrow.

Luca Cumani runners in the north are always to be considered and looked to have ability when improving hugely on his Ascot debut to be second at York.

Further progress can be expected, although John Gosden's two-yearolds were in great heart over the weekend and his Starboard represents the danger.

Paul Hanagan will be desperately keen to get further ahead of Silvestre de Sousa in the title race and Personal Touch looks his best chance in division two (1.10).

The Pivotal colt, trained by Hanagan's boss, Richard Fahey, has looked to be crying out for this seven furlongs.

Kieren Fallon looks a significant booking by Phil McEntee for Black Baccara (2.30) in the Handicap at Kempton.

The former champion knows this filly well, having won on her at Folkestone in April, and the fouryear-old is appealingly handicapped at the moment, being on the same mark as for that win at the Kent circuit.

She showed a marked return to form when just failing at Lingfield last time out, and all the signs are there that she is ready to win again.

Fallon is always worth following when engaged by Paul Howling, whose Gallantry would not be without a chance in division one of the pounds 32 Free At Handicap (3.00).

It has been a while since he actually got his head in front, but he has a definite liking for the Sunbury Polytrack, and caught the eye earlier in the month here on his first start since August.

Racing off a mark of 57, some 17lb lower than that which he started the year, he looks well worth a rare try at 10 furlongs with Fallon just the man to get him home.

The irrepressible Fallon looks set for a very productive day as he teams up with Mahmood Al Zarooni aboard the lightly-raced Auden in the Handicap (4.00).

This son of Librettist won one from three last year, and while probably nothing out of the ordinary, he remains open to improvement and Al Zarooni is hardly having a horse out of the frame at the moment.

Al Zarooni's Godolphin colleague Saeed bin Suroor is also going well, which makes Abhaath of interest in the 32Red Casino Nursery (4.30).
