17:31 That's it from Leicester where a reasonable family crowed witnessed some good finishes in teh sunshine.
A couple of days rest now before we head to Epsom on Friday for the Derby meeting, until then a very good afternoon.
17:20 You will have to go a long way to see a more facile winner than May Be Some Time in the last. the record books will show he won by seven lengths but he was value for more than double that as he was heavily eased inside the final few hundred yards.
Indeed Liam Keniry was so confident he slowed his mount down to almost a walk in the closing stages - OK he was never in any danger of being beaten but it is something the stewards should look at. Indeed they are as Beach Babe almost ran into the back of him after the line, nearly causing Neil Mackay to unseat as he tried to evade him.
Soldiers Point set the pace until headed by the winner three out.
Toucan Tango, well backed before the off, ran on late to finish second getting the better of Miskin Diamond in a photograph.
17:15 Back to the round course for our final contest the Swannington Handicap, just shy of 1m 2f with nine due to face the starter.
Educated Son was getting a little fizzed up in the parade ring, Beach Babe was biting her bit.
16:51 Another good finish and another where the favourite looked home and hosed only to get beaten in the closing stages.
The favourite this time was Verinco, leading a furlong out and looking the winner until Six Wives came with a late run to head him inside the final 50 yards, coming home a length and a half clear.
Another running on late, even more impressively, was Compton Spirit, rattling like a train and just failing to pass the favourite by a short head. Italian Tom, barely sighted in the race, was another fast finisher to take fourth.
16:36 Another 5f sprint, the SIS Handicap with 13 due to line up.
Liberty Ship looks more like a chaser than a sprinter, a big horse. Six Wives is on her toes, Kinigi is pulling slightly. Verinco looked good as were Make My Dream and Comptonspirit
16:23 That was one impressive winner as Roman Soldier defeated his rivals with absolute ease and this from a horse who still looks like having scope to grow.
Always with the pace he ran on well inside the final furlong coming home 3 1/2 lengths clear of the favourite Right To Dream, with debutant Mehdi half a length back in third and bound to come on for the run.
Bounty Seeker, a typical Johnston yard front runner, finished fourth.
16:06 Another two-year-old contest, this time over six furlongs, with ten due to line up for the Oadby Maiden Stakes.
Bounty Seeker was getting a little warm as was Dovils Date, who has scope to grow. Flavius Victor was pulling. Roman Soldier was another getting a little warm and having scope to grow. Bu Naaji and Right To Dream look best of all
15:50 Another one for Di Clarke and heartache for favourite backers as Gud Day gets up to win by a nose in the very final stride.
The favourite Jack's Revenge had taken up the running approaching the furlong marker and soon opened up what looked like a commanding lead but Gud Day came late and hit the front where it mattered.
Divine Rule set the pace in the early stages before dropping back allowing Iron Green to take up the running around three out, before dropping out tamely to come home last.
Lady Barastar was doing her best work in the closing stages to finish third, albeit 3 1/2 lengths behind the front pair.
15:35 Race four is our first race on the round course today. The Swannington Handicap (Division One) over just short of 1m 2f, sees 11 going to post.
Jack's Revenge is most relaxed, Comrade Bond is quite small and swishing his tail like a windmill, Gud Day is getting a little warm and Disturbia is a jig-jogger.
15:18 The top two in the betting filled the first two places as Azameera took the stands rail to head Elusivity in the closing stages to record a 1 3/4 length victory.
Elusivity had taken up the running two out, having headed the early pacesetter Icebuster. He looked home and hosed until half a furlong from home where he began to send out the warning signals.
Arctic Mirage was produced with a late run which saw him take third place, arguably had the run come sooner he may have finished in a better position.
Mr Dream Maker also made some late headway to finish fourth, ahead of Icebuster.
Saskia's Dream was taken very steadily to post, arriving at the start a good five minutes after the others. She ran freely in the race, sharing the early running but eventually tiring to come home sixth.
15:05 Another seven furlong contest, the Abbey Park Handicap with nine going to post.
Azameera was pulling a little bit and will be going to post early. Icebuster was getting a little warm and Mr Dream Maker was a slight head shaker. Paddock pick is Elusivity.
14:48 No need for a photograph in this contest as No Poppy was a clear cut, 1 1/4 length, winner, running on inside the final furlong to beat Danceyourselfdizzy and Christmas Aria.
Christmas Aria and the favourite, Turn The Tide, had a clear advantage two out but Turn The Tide soon dropped out, probably a combination of not getting the trip and running too freely in the early stages.
Danceyourselfdizzy was settled mid-div before making progress two out.
Look For Love was a concern pulling up very quickly and looking to have possibly done a leg.
14:36 Up to seven furlongs for race two, the Stathern Claiming Stakes, sees 11 go to post.
What About Now was swishing her tail, New Latin slightly on his toes, Sofias Number One was pulling. No Poppy is a jig-jogger, and Look For Love and Dorothy's Dream were both pulling slightly.
14:22 Had the opening contest been a handicap the handicapper would have a smug grin across his face with two lengths separating the first seven home.
Interestingly the five who contested the bunch finish were always to the fore.
Meloneras led the entire way to be headed in the final strides by Nagham, who was running around fifth for most of the contest, and Midas Medusa who had run second throughout.
Judge Di Clarke gave the verdict to Nagham by a short head with Midsa Medusa just a nose ahead of Melonares.
Considering how hard she pulled My Solitaire did well to finish fourth and will surely improve if she can learn to settle.
The winner had been well supported in the betting available at 20/1 this morning it shortened to 8/1 at one point before going off at 12/1
13:59 They are in the parade ring for the opener the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over five furlongs with a very depleted field of ten going to post.
There is no polite way to put this but My Solitaire is being an utter bitch in the parade ring, pulling hard and fly kicking.
Royal Red and Caledonia Lady were both on their toes and Meloneras was getting feisty and was whinnying whilst being saddled.
13:21 The track has a lovely covering of grass and on my brief look I could not find any softish patches.
13:12 Good afternoon from an overcast Leicester where it is, at least, dry.
The non-runner count is now 12.
09:28 Almost half the field now out of the opener and 11 non-runners across the card now.
08:31 A rush of further non-runners, most of them in the opener.
07:54 There was 1mm of rain overnight and the official going is Good, Good to Soft in places with a going stick reading of 7.1
There are currently three non-runners, all in the opener.
The time in brackets is the time the horse was officially declared a non-runner.
