Be Quick about it and fall into Trap

Both the English and Irish Cesarewitch take place over the weekend and, as always, they should prove to be two of the most competitive handicaps run at Newmarket and the Curragh this season.

Meath-based trainer Tony Martin looks to hold a strong hand in england with Quick Jack the favourite for tomorrow while Ted Veale (pictured) is likely to be the market leader for the Curragh on Sunday.

Quick Jack is a horse who looks like he could well still have plenty of improvement in him. A winner off 85 on the opening night of the Galway Festival, he will run off just 94 tomorrow and considering some of his previous form, and how impressive he was at Galway, he looks very well treated.

There's no doubt that 6/1 looks a short price for such a race but with any bit of luck in running at all he'll be in the frame.

On Sunday, there are some real progressive types in the big one at HQ but one that may well run a big race in the Irish Cesarewitch at a decent price is James Nash's Massini's Trap who sneaks into the race right at the bottom of the handicap.
