Take it that Tamareen is on right track for glory

TAMAREEN can make the most of the switch back to Polytrack as he lines up in the Thousands of Sports Experiences At bluesq.com Handicap at Wolverhampton.

The four-year-old tried Southwell's Fibresand for the first time on his last outing and while far from disgraced\[Ian Winterton\] in finishing fourth, Tamareen had fared better on the other surface in the past.

Richard Fahey's charge was beaten two lengths at the Nottinghamshire venue and was just lacking that little extra as he had every chance.

Tamareen has previously posted a career-best effort at Wolverhampton, staying on in style to win over his optimum trip of seven furlongs.

A 4lb rise did not look that harsh and he remains on a mark of 77 despite his defeat at Southwell. While on a career high, Tamareen is worth following. Arrivaderci was unlucky to bump into Blaugrana last time, but compensation awaits in the second division of the Blue Square Winter Carnival iPhone App Handicap.

Beaten just over three lengths, Arrivaderci put in her best run since joining Richard Guest's team as she stayed on for second inside the distance of the six-furlong maiden.

Winless in 12 starts to date, she makes more appeal reverting to handicap company off her lowest ever mark.

Black Iceman deserves respect in the Play Da Vinci Diamonds At bluesq.com/games Handicap after clashing with a Barney Curley hotpot last time out.

Sommersturm proved far too good over course and distance four days ago but Black Iceman will probably not face such a well-handicapped rival here.

Favorite Girl is an interesting runner as she drops back from maiden company in the Golf At Lingfield Park Fillies' Handicap at the Surrey venue.

The four-year-old changed hands for a paltry 2,000 guineas last autumn and it should be noted that Michael Appleby goes straight to handicap company.

Charminster suffered a shock loss at Sedgefield but should not make the same mistake in the Country Refreshments Beginners' Chase at Musselburgh.

Ericht should be given a chance in Huntingdon's European Breeders' Fund ‘National Hunt’ Novices' Hurdle. The six-year-old just failed when pitched in at Grade Two on his first try over hurdles at Cheltenham.
