Leicester sometimes gets a little taken for granted. It is mainly a 'midweek' course but it can boast some decent racing, not least with the Leicestershire Stakes in April. Also, the likes of Sir Michael Stoute and David Loder are not frightened to bring their better juveniles to the course for maidens throughout the season.
