Cheltenham Racecourse 17th November
Two more at Cheltenham Racecourse today.
12.45 - Don’t Shout won well at Hereford Racecourse a month ago on just his second hurdles outing over 2m 3f, following up on the promise shown when third on his debut at Perth over 2m. Steps up to 2m 5f for his handicap debut, going from a mark of 120, left top weight after some defections over night. The soft ground should suit and expected to show some more improvement, so a good run expected. Jordan Nailor rides and takes off 6lbs in this conditional jockeys event.
1.50 - Al Dancer was 4 from 5 over hurdles and started his chasing career in similar fashion here last month when beating three rivals. Meets the same number here including one he beat that day, who we now meet on 3lb worse terms. However, with more to come, this should be very interesting over the same trip and, having won hurdles on soft ground, the going shouldn’t be a worry. Another good run expected and hopeful that the improvement left is enough to cope with the reverse in terms. Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
...both 16th November. (40 wins so far this season).
