Ladies take centre stage
Andy Haynes could be the trainer to follow as Great Yarmouth Racecourse stages its Ladies Night this evening with an entertaining seven-race-card
Top jockeys Frankie Dettori, Keiren Fallon, Ryan Moore and Jamie Spencer are also in action, with the first race off at 6pm.
Haynes, who trains at Limpley Stoke on the Wiltshire/Somerset border, could well land a double with Dolly Colman (8.00) and Annelko (9.00).
Dolly Colman lines up against 12 rivals in the Freederm Handicap. This filly makes her handicap debut and looks well in, after a fast finishing third over course and distance last month, and providing she gets a clear run could break her maiden tag. Course winner Dubawi Dancer, with Moore in the saddle, looks the main danger
Annelko goes an hour later in the lucky last, the Bazuka Handicap. This consistent gelding has been running well this season, with two wins to her credit - including an impressive four length over the course win last month - and if he can reproduce that form he should be there or thereabouts again.

Feature race of the evening is the Adios Handicap (8.30), in which Ferruccio gets the nod. This three-year-old progressive colt has raced with distinction on his last two starts, when finishing second on each occasion, and is taken to go one better against older rivals and give his jockey, Keiren Fallon, his seventh course win of the season.
In the opener, the British Stallion Studs E.B.F./4head Maiden Stakes, it could pay dividends to follow Frankie Dettori's only ride of the evening, Paladin.

This Godolphin-trained colt was well fancied on his racecourse debut at Newmarket last month, but looked in need of the outing when finishing fifth and is taken to shape better for that experience. The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Croquembouche merits respect on his racecourse debut.
Queen of the Hop is the tentative selection in the Diomed Developments Selling Nursery Handicap (6.30) in field of seven which sees David Evans saddling three runners while Mick Channon has two. This filly deserves a change of luck after being placed in each of her four starts, including a third place at Beverley last time out, when staying on well to finish third, after being outpaced early on.
Course and distance winner Clerical is given every chance in the Aeropak Handicap (7.00).
This five-year-old gelding won this race last season and is taken to give another good account of himself after a decent fifth on his seasonal debut at the east coast track last month. This competitive race sees the re-appearance 100-1 winner Riley's Crane, while Atia and Fantasy Fighter both have chances.
Wreningham is given an each-way squeak in the Ibuleve Handicap (7,30), in what looks a hard race to call. Trained at Newmarket by Stuart Williams, this gelding was second in this race last season and after a couple of pipe-openers this year, Wreningham looks primed for another bold showing in the race.
Whiskey Junction, Star Twlight and Bobby`s Doll have all been running well and must be threats.
