DICTATRIX has been flying at home since her seasonal reappearance at Yarmouth. Last year she had breathing problems so had an operation on her wind over the winter which seems to have worked. She is due to run at Kempton on the polytrack this Wednesday over 6 furlongs. This is a drop back in trip but she has always shown plenty of speed at home so hopefully it won’t be a problem. The other slight unknown is whether she will handle the all weather surface. If she does then this race should be an ideal opportunity for her to get back to winning ways.
WESTER ROSS makes his first appearance of the season at Windsor tonight. He showed a lot of promise on his first run at the backend of last season at Newmarket and always looked like a horse with a future. It looks a hot maiden race tonight but he is in good form and is expected to run well. The step up to 10 furlongs will suit him as he should stay well.
On Tuesday HOT CHERRY has been found an ideal contest in the last race on the card at Wolverhampton. She is a half sister to RUBY WINE but has not shown the same ability on the racecourse. This is a weak contest and she should have a chance in this company. She was bred by the owners and it would help the family if she could win a race.
