Wednesday April 11th
We were hit with the weather again yesterday and Southwell was abandoned which was a real shame as we had 3 exciting runners who now have to find new plans.
Today we have 3 runners today.
2 runners go to Market Rasen. ‘Minella Scamp’ runs in a Novice Handicap Chase at 4:10. He has been running consistently well for us and maybe the trip was a bit too far last time at Warwick so we hope the drop back to 2m5 could be a good move.
‘Lip Service’ runs in the following race at 4:40. The race is a 3 mile handicap chase. He has had 2 good runs for us over hurdles but has only won over fences so we hope he can go well today back over fences. Paddy rides both runners at Market Rasen.
We also have 1 runner at Kempton Park on the All Weather. ‘The Groove’ has his first run back after a winter holiday. He is in good form so we are looking forward to a run summer with him on the flat. Kieran Shoemark rides.
Tomorrow is the start of the Aintree festival and we can’t wait to get up there and start racing!!! We have an exciting team going up and tomorrow our chances start with ‘Barrakilla’ in the Foxhunters chase. Zac Baker rides him.
‘Barrakilla’ won his first Hunters Chase this season at Bangor and then qualified for Aintree with a solid 2nd at Warwick.
We also have ‘Luna June’ making her racecourse debut at Taunton in a Mares Maiden Bumper.
