Tom's thoughts on the favourite for the first race, Stencive:
"One trainer who seems to be in fair nick is William Haggas. From his last 18 runners, seven have obliged while five have finished second. The local trainer saddles the favourite, Stencive, in our opening race here, the Qipco Supporting British Racing Stakes handicap.
"Even the racecard is impressed - Stencive has a five-star rating, while poor old Wildomar - the mount of Stevie Donohoe of John Ryan - has just one star. Hardly a star rating at all, is it?"
