Three today, two at Leicester and one at Catterick.
12.30 - Turning Gold makes the trip north having had just one hurdles appearance since joining us from a successful flat campaign. A good second on that debut, he’s come on nicely for the run and we’re hopeful of making the trip a worthwhile one. Tom Bellamy rides.
1.45 - Ballyarthur meets just three rivals but looks likely to go off the outsider of the party. A win a year ago at this track and slightly further, saw him rise from 119 to a high of 13, but despite this he had still managed two seconds and two thirds before being pulled up last time at Towcester, possibly not suited to the track. Down to 127 here and back on soft ground should see him back to form and he can go close. Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
3.25 - Mr Antoloni has joined us from the Garrett James Power yard in Ireland where he showed plenty of promise, particularly last time out when 3rd of 20 in a decent Punchestown handicap hurdle, going down by just 1/2 length. Is up 8lbs from his Irish rating of 111, but comes in to this in good shape and a good run expected. Sam rides.
