Unlike Tuesday, this morning's training session is conducted under beautiful conditions, with many racegoers present. With the sand track unavailable tomorrow and on Monday, most of the horses work fast today.

Some possible participants of the first classic race of the season show up well, including Disco Al, Ready To Attack and Exit Here. The first two horses do two laps, with the former wearing the blinkers, while Exit Here works with champion sprinter Charles Lytton and also has the blinkers on.

The Vincent Allet-trained duo of Netflix and Rap Attack continues to progress, while Easy Lover is in vastly improved shape. Psycho Syd is in very good condition and he even works twice this morning.

Of the new horses that are expected to make their bow in the early meetings, Dealer’s Charm, Shreya’s Star, Singita Sweni, Dark Force, Anton Ruskin, Golden Ball and Tabreek all impress this morning.

Next week marks an important step in preparations, with the first barrier trials of the year taking place on Wednesday 15th March.
