Today’s racing kicks off with Grade 3 action as BLACK TEARS runs in the Quevega Mares Hurdle over 2m4f. There are a few very competitive mares in this and they will be looking to take advantage of how close it is to Cheltenham to try and get an easier race. Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
The Greek like many horses at the moment has been either balloted out or put as a reserve, and today he sits as second reserve with Jack Kennedy booked in waiting for a very competitive race.
PAPAL LODGE aims to continue his good run in division I of the Maiden Hurdle over 2m. He won’t have it his own way by any means as this looks a very competitive field and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
We have another reserve in race 4 with Coach Carter. We will be waiting for the phone call to take him and we have Jack Kennedy on standby if needed.
For the Pertemps Qualifier we have two nice horses. DALLAS DES PICTONS goes in as top weight and has rising star Jordon Gainford onboard to claim 7lbs off while Sassy Yet Classy looks to run another good race where there is a valuable pot in store with Denis O’Regan in the saddle.
Finally we have the progressive HUMBLE GLORY in the mares maiden hurdle over 2m. She has won over further so will have plenty of stamina for this and hopefully she can have another good run, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
