The ladies take centre stage at Fakenham's Ladies Day meeting tomorrow when the expected bumper crowd could see them among the winners.

Wymondham trainer Caroline Fryer broke her duck as a National Hunt trainer at the track earlier this season, and with Bridget Andrews in the saddle, could clock up another success.

Storm to Pass, in the Aylsham Show August Bank Holiday Lady Amateur Riders Handicap Hurdle at 4.30pm, could take the beating following a recent second at Uttoxeter and third at Southwell. Manshoor and Bach On Tow are threats.

Bach on Tow is ridden by Lucy Gardner, daughter of trainer Susan and the duo have a likely favourite in the handicap hurdle at 3pm with Clouds of Mist, a winner at Cartmel in May. Bollin Tahini, Alex Merriam for Neil King and Burnt Again for John Best are dangers.

Fryer fields Festival Bound, a Fakenham faller last time, in the same race while Hingham trainer Christine Dunnett's Onwards 'N' Upwards will be a rank outsider.

Fryer has three runners at the meeting, her representative in the maiden hurdle opener at 2pm being Played Away under Harry Skelton. But Shuh Shuh Gah, Tom Phelan for David Bridgwater, the grey Birzali and Cottesmore from John Ferguson's yard are more likely scorers despite champion jockey A P McCoy's mount, Lyssio.

Ferguson could pick up the feature, the Spring Beginners Chase at 2.30pm with Denis O'Regan aboard Cry of Freedom, winner of the Bathwick Tyres Hurdle at Taunton in May. Caravel for Tim Vaughan and Kian's Delight from Peter Bowen are dangers.
