We had a great day yesterday coming away with two winners from three runners. Today storm Betty could make things a bit more difficult.
In the opening race we have just SALVADOR ZIGGY as Lieutenant Highway is now a nonrunner. Ziggy was mightily impressive when winning on chase debut and takes a step forward here where he looks the pick of the field. Jack Kennedy is back in action and takes the ride.
For the 2m5f handicap chase we have C’EST QUELQU’UN who has been twice placed since joining the team and shouldn’t be too far off now. He slots in nicely and will have Jack Kennedy in the saddle.
Next up is the Michael Griffen Auctioneers maiden hurdle where we have LUCKY STORM. Unlike her name she hasn’t been the luckiest and was a faller last time out. Fingers crossed she has more luck here as she has Jack Kennedy in the saddle.
MINNIE BEETS runs in the mares handicap hurdle over 2m where we will be claiming with Carl Millar. Carl has got a good tune out of a few lately and hopefully he can work his magic here claiming 7lbs.
We have another maiden hurdle runner in the shape of SEA ASTER who ran very well last time out to come hope 5th after running out before that. She looks a quirky type but Jack Kennedy is in the saddle and this could cut up to an open race.
We double up in the 80 – 109 handicap hurdle with ZETTABYTE and WHAT AN OCEAN. Zettabyte is not a straightforward ride having unseated last time out. Hopefully its a different story here as Jack Kennedy is in the saddle. What an Ocean is coming off the back of a break and comes here fresh. Hopefully that will benefit her and she has Jody McGarvey in the saddle.
Wrapping up the show is SILVER LARK in the bumper. She will be fitted with first time cheekpieces in this very open contest. She has a few runs under her belt now and will have Hannah Smullen in the saddle claiming 7lbs.
