We start the afternoon off with our new recruit MEDIA NARANJA who was an expensive buy from France and she won very impressively on the flat. She has a jumpers pedigree and has shown plenty of speed. Hopefully there is something special about her as she takes on hurdles for the first time with Jordan in the saddle.
For the Grade 3 Red Mills Trial Hurdle we have FIL DOR and DOCTOR BRAVO. Fil dor will need to regain his shine here as he looks to have lost his form lately. He should be good enough to win this and will have Jordan Gainford in the saddle. Doctor Bravo may be lacking a bit of experience compared to some of the others here but this will be a great race to see how good he is. Denis O’Regan has been booked to ride.
In the Red Mills Chase we have BATTLEOVERDOYEN in the five runner field. His mark has come down a bit and is something we can work with in the future. This looks a difficult task off level weights, Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN was a faller last time out back in May. He had a long Summer holiday which has done him the world of good. He has always looked a lovely big chasing type so now seems a good time for a tilt in a beginners chase. Jordan Gainford has been booked to ride.
For the handicap chase we have IRISH BLAZE who looks well in on marks. He ran very well the last day and looks well suited to handicap company. This will be another ride for Jordan Gainford.
Finally in the bumper we have WHY DELILAH and BRIGHTDAYSAHEAD. Why Delilah ran very well on debut coming home 2nd and that should give her the experience she needs for this, Jamie Codd takes the ride. Brightdaysahead is a sister to the extremely talented Mighty Potter and much later down the line will be a very sought after as a broodmare. This will be her first time on track and her pedigree suggests that she’s something to get excited about. Harry Swan has been booked to ride and claims 7lbs.
