IT'S the ladies who take centre stage this evening when a bumper crowd is forecast at Great Yarmouth's evening race event.

While the six-race card should given punters plenty to think about, all eyes will be on the ladies and their fashions while ears will be tuned in after racing to a performance by Fake That.

IT'S the ladies who take centre stage this evening when a bumper crowd is forecast at Great Yarmouth's evening race event.

While the six-race card should given punters plenty to think about, all eyes will be on the ladies and their fashions while ears will be tuned in after racing to a performance by Fake That.

The six-race card could prove tricky for punters with some puzzling heats to solve, starting with a couple of two-year-old sprints.

The opening race at 6.20pm sees two youngsters out for their second outing after both finishing fourth on their debuts. It really is take your pick between Clive Brittain's Nideeb and Kavak, both juveniles having made their debuts at Newmarket.

Market support for John Gosden's Pounced and Henry Cecil's Notice Given, both having their first run, might also be significant.

The 6.50 similar event is also difficult to solve but the answer, at a decent price, might be Treasury Bond, under Royston French. Fourth at 20-1 last time out, it may prove the value.

The eight-year-old Silver Prelude may still prove young enough to take the five furlong minimum trip 7.20 race. Second last time out, the old timer carries four pounds less this time and may be too good for younger rivals although Guto, second last time out over six furlongs, may appreciate the shorter trip despite being up four pounds in the weights.

Iguacu looks a like favourite for the 7.50 over nine furlongs having won a lady riders' event last time out at Nottingham over 10 furlongs. Apprentice Matthew Davies claims a useful five pounds which will help the cuase although market support for Henry Cecil's Young Star Gazer could be significant with Tom Queally aboard.

Dreamwalk is fancied to take the 8.20 over a mile and a quarter. Two recent efforts in higher class events proved unsuccessful but before that the horse won at Great Yarmouth over the same trip on May 19.

The finale, over a mile and six furlongs could be difficult to solve. Willie Musson's Sparkaway, a winner at Pontefract last time out, has an extra eight pounds to carry this time and so it may be worth siding with the Mark Tompkins trained, Ted Durcan ridden Dazinski, third at Newmarket last time out over a shorter trip.
