In-form syndicate Middleham Park Racing bid for more Beverley glory with two live chances on the Westwood this Tuesday.
Middleham savoured an evening to remember last week when their distinctive blue and orange silks returned to the Beverley winner’s enclosure three times.
They are again well represented on Tuesday’s card, with the George Boughey-trained Absolute Queen first up in the Here Come The Girls EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (2.15).
Fairmac, trained by Mark and Charlie Johnston, later goes to post in the feature race, the John Cleverly Memorial Handicap (3.15).
Mike Prince, Middleham Park partner and racing manager, said of Absolute Queen: “She ran a belter when second on debut at Nottingham and was doing her best work at the end – even though she was green.
“She might have won if the race was 20 yards further so this step up in trip should suit her.
“It’s quite a strong race, but we’re the best on Timeform ratings so you’d hope she’ll go well.
“We’ve half an eye on the Goffs Millions sales race at the Curragh in September if she progresses like we hope we think she will.”
Fairmac also finished runner-up on his last start, with Prince expecting the four-year-old grey to be in his element at Beverley.
He said: “Fairmac was a bit below-par at Redcar but we took the blinkers off last time and he ran really well at Ripon.
“He was in the Cumberland Plate but we just felt this was a better option for him.
“He’s dropping back in trip, but he’s versatile in that respect and the stiff finish at Beverley should suit him nicely.”
Beverley’s seven-race card begins at 1.45pm with the Go Racing In Yorkshire Future Stars Apprentice Handicap and concludes at 4.45pm with the Racing TV-sponsored maiden over eight and a half furlongs.
The forecast on the Westwood is for a dry, warm day with plenty of sunshine and a high of 23C.
