Market Rasen Sam Twiston-Davies
Three off to Market Rasen Racecourse today, where the going is good to soft and Sam Twiston-Davies rides all three.
3.30 - Sir Valentine - Returned to hurdling at Warwick early February with a fourth place on heavy ground, following a spell of three chases where he gained a couple of runners up spots in small fields, all around 2m. Steps up in trip to 2m 4f for the first time and with the better ground much more likely to suit, plus a drop of 3lbs to 128, a much better run is expected. Good each way prospects.
4.05 - Fantastikas - Makes his handicap debut after finally getting his head in front at Fontwell following five runners up spots from six runs. That was over 2m 3f on good to soft so today’s ground and 2m 7f will suit. Looks a fair mark on 128 but more to come and another good run expected. Should go very well.
5.05 - Blended Stealth - Has had a couple of bumper runs, the last on the all-weather at Kempton. Has finished 7th on both occasions, but a lot closer than those figures suggest. Is much better for the experience so far and expected to go well again hooded for the first time.
