Tanya Stevenson: WALL HAS ACE UP HIS SLEEVE; CHANNEL 4'S No.1 E-MAIL FEMALE 'Ian Semple's Appalachian Trail Heads to Sandown Where He Was Just Touched off Last Year


Byline: Tanya Stevenson

THERE is no denying Motivator was a devastating winner of last Saturday's Vodafone Derby.

My fears about his ability to cope with the preliminaries proved to be unfounded. Rounding Tattenham Corner he was still hard held on the bridle while others were struggling.

His victory sets up some potential mouth-watering matches later in the year.

First and second in the French Derby Sharmadal and Hurricane Run, Arc winner Bago and 2004 Oaks heroine Ouija Board are all touted opponents in the future racing calendar.

The most distinct feature of the racing at Epsom on Friday and Saturday was that all the winners were in contention from the start and those out the back remained there.

Perhaps the track watering had an effect and if that is relevant with a dry summer ahead we should take heed.

One of the more sedate, gentle weekends of racing on the eve of Royal Ascot at York as trainers send out yardsticks to see how their stables are performing.

At Ripon Chris Wall runs Ace Of Hearts who last appeared on the racecourse at Sandown on Bank Holiday Monday.

And although John McCririck reported there was a large quantity of money for him in the betting ring the same certainly did not apply on the exchanges.

However he put in a solid run finishing just behind Momtic. Momtic hacked up at Epsom and a distance back in third was Neros Return who as I mentioned earlier had no chance with his come from behind style.

He'll need a more prominent pitch to keep tabs on Ace Of Hearts. This horse has so much ability ACE OF HEARTS (2.50) must be a frustrating problem to place but he may have found the right opening today.

The toteplacepot handicap is virtually in the grasp of TOUGH LOVE (2.20). He missed the break over seven furlongs at Catterick only failed by half a length. Back up in trip he sets the standard for everyone to catch.

Beckermet was well entered today but Roger Fisher has decided on the Heritage Handicap. Beckermet was my confident selection for the VCbet Scottish Sprint a fortnight ago but disappointed.

On the same day VIKING SPIRIT (3.25)ran a blinder at Goodwood behind the well supported Eisteddfod. He found trouble in running but came home strongly to gain the runner-up spot, form that stands out in this company.

Idle Power was not so fortunate behind Eisteddfod where Frankie Dettori had him ideally placed but the gaps closed once Eisteddfod got through, leaving Idle Power with nowhere to go.

Part-owned by a neighbour of mine, he has his fingers crossed for better luck today at Sandown.He faces mighty opponents in Red Spell, Polar Magic and Appalachian Trial.

Red Spell was eased close home when blasting clear at Goodwood recently and there is definitely more to come from him.

Polar Magic was subject of a gamble at Newmarket only to be foiled by Serre Chevalier with the pair finishing clear. …
