5:25 Yarmouth (30th April)

This looks a three-horse race on paper and connections will be disappointed if its not third time lucky for Thomas Baines. On his two previous outings he has found problem after problem caused by a tendency to start slowly. This looks a capable juvenile and he will take some beating here.

Tiradito, trained by Marco Botti, cost $50,000 and makes an interesting recruit. As does Clive Brittain's Misheer, a filly with the price tag of £70,000gns and Callan was booked early to ride at the five-day declarations.

McLaughlin was originally booked to ride Avec Moi but chosen Soutwark Newshawk instead.

Thomas Baines should make his experience count and hopefully enjoy his day at the seaside.

A watching race.

Race review: 'Thomas Baines had a clear run today but didn't look as though he wanted to know. Those who went in at terribly short odds will regret ever seeing this two-year-old let alone betting on him. A horse to be avoided. Clive Brittain's Misheer came in for support and won this with ease. Difficult to know what this filly achieved although she may be talent and Royal Ascot must be on the cards. Tiradito finished second with Thomas Baines a disappointing third.'
