This is the return of my weekly column featuring those horses that have caught my eye during the past week, these notebook horses are also sent out by email to all registered members of Free Racing Tips.
I hope you are enjoying the return of English racing.
There have only been three race meetings so far and already I have a handful of horses for the notebook.
New Notebook Horses
ART POWER – Impressive winner over 6f on opening day at Newcastle. Expected to be aimed at the 5f sprint at Royal Ascot.
FRANKLY DARLING – Daughter of Frankel won going away by 5 lengths at Newcastle over 1m 2f now firmly in the Oaks picture.
FIRST RECEIVER – Our Premium Tip on Tuesday 2nd June – Made almost all of the running when recording a very comfortable win by 7 lengths over the mile at Kempton. I can see him been stepped up to 1m 2f in time and Royal Ascot may be on the agenda.
JEAN BAPTISTE – Made up a lot of ground in the closing stages and kept on well to take third, just ½ length behind the winner. Should Win a 7f handicap before too long.
Notebook Runners Since last week
Will appear here as the season progresses.

|An Fear Ciuin||[Running on second 6 lengths behind a very easy winner at Kelso (2m 1f) this was his best run to date and he should be off the mark over fences before too long.]||30 Oct 2019|

|Captain Guinness||Was badly hampered 3 out in the Supreme Novices Hurdle, recovered well and was challenging 2 out when brought down, surely would have been at least placed.||30 Mar 2020|

|First Receiver||Made most 7 length rout very comfortable win.||03 Jun 2020|

|Le Prezien||Excellent run in the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las (2m Soft) giving away 16lb, only beaten a short head and this was on the back of 7 months off. Will strip fitter for the run and should be hard t||23 Oct 2019|
