LADY AVENGER has to carry top weight for her seasonal reappearance at Sandown tomorrow. She is running in a handicap over 5 furlongs. She will like the ground, currently good/soft, and is drawn in the middle, 6 of 11. She may just need this first run of the season and the stiffness of the track may just find her out, especially with top weight. She has been working nicely at home this spring so hopefully she can run a promising race tomorrow.
POCHARD will be declared over hurdles at Market Rasen on Saturday but is highly unlikely to get a run. She ran the best race of her career on good jumping ground at Stratford over the same trip as Saturday;'s race. She is likely to get very similar conditions again so it will be disappointing if she is balloted out as she would have a very good chance.
