Tom has three rides today at Newbury.

1:30 PEARLY ISLAND - Successful over 2m3f on last two handicap attempts; further progress is possible.

Owner - S C McIntyre - Trainer - Lucy Wadham.

3:50 I'M A LUMBERJACK - £42,000 3yo; has a smart pedigree; major stable; interesting.

Owners - This Time Next Year Partnership - Trainer - Alan King

Alan has won the £100,000 Goffs Spring Sale Bumper a couple of times and always targets the race. He has three representatives this year and, though all are making their racecourse debut, Alan is looking forward to getting them launched.

He said:”They are ready to start, but all three will improve on whatever they achieve here. Menaggio has been working well and this has always been his aim, I’m A Lumberjack has been doing everything right on the gallops and is by Jack Hobbs, who could have a big future as a jumping stallion, and, though Girls In Skirts is the most backward of the trio, she has to start somewhere and owner Charles Dingwall is happy to give it a go.”

5:00 KAPCORSE - Smart form here and could be interesting if revived by a change of scenery.

Owner - Hip Flask Racing - Trainer - Billy Aprahamian
