Newcomer on the Mark.

Mark Johnston introduces a regally-bred newcomer in the shape of Denbera Dancer at Pontefract tomorrow.

The youngster is a full-brother to the high class Rumplestiltskin, a dual Group One winner in a brilliant juvenile campaign and seventh in Speciosa's 1000 Guineas. The Middleham runner holds some lofty entries and it will be fascinating to see what his trainer can do with him.

Good timing

Greenwich Meantime is reported "in great nick" ahead of his next big-race assignment in the totesport Ebor at York later this month.

Colt's chance

Derby entry Novista can get off the mark in the BBC Radio Norfolk Novice Auction Stakes at Yarmouth tomorrow evening.

Mark Tompkins' colt finished second on his debut at Goodwood to Divine Right and is expected to improve on that run.

No appeal

South Yorkshire-based trainer Tim Pitt will not appeal against the decision by the Thirsk stewards to fine him pounds 6,000 over the running and riding of Jordan's Light on Saturday.
