Sanders is a sound bet for success

Seb Sanders looks the jockey to follow at Great Yarmouth tonight, as the course stages its first evening meeting of the season, with their Irish Rhythm and Rock Race Night.

Seb Sanders looks the jockey to follow at Great Yarmouth tonight, as the course stages its first evening meeting of the season, with their Irish Rhythm and Rock Race Night.

Sanders, who is currently leading the Flat Jockeys Championship, travels up from Ascot for three rides. His best chances look to be aboard Surwaki and Dramatic.

Surwaki lines up in the 8pm race, the Freederm Handicap over an extended mile. This consistent gelding has been placed in each of his three starts at Yarmouth, including second last time out to Moody Tunes last month. Despite carrying top weight, Surwaki should score his second success. Course and distance winner Rowan Lodge looks the main danger.

Sanders should complete the double an hour later, when he rides Dramatic in the final race of the evening, the Bazuka Handicap. Trained by the "Handicap King", Sir Mark Prescott, Dramatic bids for his third victory this month after two emphatic wins on the all-weather at Wolverhampton and Lingfield. Retaliate and Cornerstone both look well handicapped on recent form.

The evening gets underway at 6.30pm, with the 4Head Apprentice Handicap over a mile-and-a-quarter. The Michael Bell-trained gelding Gizmondo looks the one to follow after an excellent second place at Nottingham earlier this month. Also watch out for, Panshir, who has an each way chance for local trainer, Christine Dunnett.

Dalkey Girl bids for her debut success in the Aeropak Maiden Auction Stakes, off at 7pm. This two-year-old filly put in a pleasing performance when finishing fourth on her racing debut at Lingfield. If she improves on that run, Dalkey Girl should break her maiden tag, with William Buick in the saddle.

Buick could be in the winner's enclosure again aboard the Neville Callaghan-trained Corlough Mountain in the Adios Rating Related Maiden Stakes, off at 8.30pm. This three-year-old colt showed plenty of promise on his three starts last season and is likely to be in the shake-up on his seasonal debut.

The Bill Turner-trained Sad Times is the tentative selection in the Diomed Development Selling Stakes at 7.30pm. This three-year-old filly has shown form at this level, including two wins last season and a third at Catterick in May.
