Leicester Racecourse January 13th
Nigel Twiston-Davies & Team Twiston have three runners at Leicester Racecourse today.
1.10 - Tip Top Cat - Makes his debut over fences and in handicaps here after a bumper run and two hurdles outings, the last of which in February ‘20, saw an encouraging 3rd of 7 over 2m 3f on heavy ground at Warwick. Has come on a lot in the time off and a rating of 115 seems a decent mark to start from. Should show improvement for the larger obstacles and a good run expected with each way prospects. Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
1.40 - Wicked Willy - Showed signs of a return to form with a third place over today’s course and distance on soft ground early in December from a mark of 122. Has taken a tumble in the ratings from 132 in October ‘19 and goes from 119 today. Meets heavy ground today and hopeful of a further revival. Jack Savage rides and claims 7lbs.
2.10 - Zambella - Has made a perfect 2 from 2 start to her chasing career with wins over 2m 1f at Bangor and 2m 4f at Warwick, both on soft going. Drops back to 2m on soft here, still improving, she meets just three rivals, but very hopeful that she can complete the hat trick. Daryl Jacob in the saddle.
