Hot To Trot: Simon says Mokarris could have more to offer
Adam Houghton flags up three trainers who are in good form at present and picks out some interesting horses that may run for them in the coming days.
Jumps trainer: Kim Bailey
Kim Bailey has enjoyed a terrific end to the 2016/17 jumps season, with four winners and eight placed from his last 21 runners. Bailey was without a runner on the final day of the season at Sandown, but will be hoping to continue his fine form into the next campaign and looks set to be well-represented on Thursday's card at Towcester. Patsys Castle and Royal Supremo hold entries in the three-mile handicap hurdle on the card and the latter will be of particular interest if taking his chance here, having shaped well when third on his handicap debut at Huntingdon on Friday. He appeared to have his stamina stretched over a markedly longer trip that day, but is entitled to improve with that first outing for four months under his belt and certainly showed to suggest he is on a fair mark at present. Champion Chase also shaped better than the bare result when fifth on his most recent outing at Southwell, holding every chance two-out and keeping on well to be beaten just 11 lengths. He left the impression the drop back to two miles will be in his favour at Towcester next week and looks worth a check in the market.
