We head to Sligo today for their all chase card and also across the water to Perth for Day 1 of their last meeting of the season.
Our first runner of the day is SHESADREAM who makes her chasing debut in the mares beginners chase. She is the highest rated over hurdles in the field but would probably prefer better ground conditions. We’re looking forward to seeing her start out over fences and Jack Kennedy will be in the saddle.
BRAVO TEAM is a non runner in the Lola Montez Beginners Chase.
In the Brenda Anderson Memorial Beginners Chase we run JENNY FLEX. She showed a good account of herself over fences when finishing second on her chasing debut at Downpatrick last time out. She was also a winner on her sole point to point start. She will have come on plenty for the run in Downpatrick and should appreciate the step up in trip. Jack Kennedy rides.
Our final runner of the day in Sligo is LIEUTENANT HIGHWAY in the Lough Gill Chase. He was disappointing last time out when he was well beaten in a Grade 3 novice chase at Galway. We’ve stepped him up in trip here today and we’re hoping that he will show a better account of himself in this 5 runner field. Jack Kennedy rides.
Over in Perth we now have just the two runners today.
In the opener, the Paul Ferguson’s Jumpers To Follow EBF Mares’ NH Novices’ Hurdle, we run GAYE WINNIE. She stayed on well to win her maiden hurdle at Downpatrick last time out and steps up in distance to 2m4f for the first time today. She should show a good account of herself under James Bowen. Sea Aster is now a non runner in this race.
NOTTODAYBOBO is our only other runner of the day in the Bet With The Dewhurst Ring Jet Master Handicap Hurdle. He was running a big race on his chasing debut last time out before unseating at the last. He switches back to hurdles today and should be involved at the business end under Sean Bowen.
The Abbey is a non runner in the Paul Ferguson’s Jumpers To Follow David Whitaker Handicap Chase.
