Second semi: 1 Knockanroe Rover, 2 Im Frankie, 3 Alannas
Spark, 4 Hartwood Tippi, 5 Centre Account (m), 6 Caseys Shadow
TRACYS GLORY was well beaten by a now perfectly drawn Alannas Spark in the heats last week, but there are good grounds for thinking she can reverse the form in the bitches' semi-final of the Shepherd Neame Guys & Dolls Stakes over 380m at Crayford tonight (9.
The key to the race could be the presence of Chartwell Flyer in trap three as Terry Dartnall's bitch, who led Alannas Spark for three bends last week, is likely to make straight for the fence.
On Saturday, another name was added to the list when the Wafcol Bitches' Midland Oaks at Hall Green fell to Alannas Spark, a daughter of Summerhill Gift and the Deenside Spark bitch Persian Spark.
Alannas Spark's breeder Paul McCarthy won a novices' race at Clonmel with Persian Spark in 29.
The rematch between Northern Oaks first and second Charliemedarling and Alannas Spark is the highlight in the 9.
She again has her favourite draw in six and, having shown top class form to reach the Blue Riband final here last month, can lead Alannas Spark (badly drawn in three), unlike in Manchester when she came from behind.
Spark is their 2-1 favourite for the big race, whilst the Vinnie Jones-owned Smoking Barrel is rated a 4-9 chance in the marathon.
Alanna Ketley died overnight on March 18 and as a result her personal Facebook page became a memorial.
It felt like I had my Alanna back as her profile is my live connection to her and her friends.
Alanna Ketley was just 18-years-old when she passed away overnight on March 18.
The 43-year-old, from Binley, Coventry, was first made aware that her daughter's Facebook profile was changing to a memorial page when she was notified by the social media site that someone had reported Alanna as deceased.
