The few horses we have run since Mount Olympus ended our losing streak at Leicester last Thursday have largely run well, with veteran Rainbow Dreamer staying on to be sixth in testing ground at Newbury, while Hourless was probably caught out by the sharp track at Newton Abbot.

Maybe Zodiac Star, the mount of CallumHutchinson, son of our long-time stable jockey Wayne, can get us back on track at Sandown on Wednesday.

Having run well in three races on the all-weather last season, Zodiac Star made a pleasing return on his first run on turf at Windsor three weeks ago. He had been off the course for more than seven months, so in a slow-run race he did well to finish fifth. He is bound to come on leaps and bounds for that comeback, and the longer distance and uphill finish at Sandown will suit him well.

Also in action on the Esher slopes is Victory, who ran well over the course in a couple of maidens two years ago. He has since won at Kempton and been placed four times, settling better than he has been doing when runner-up at Windsor last time. He ought to give Callum another good ride here.
