Stratford upon Avon & Market Rasen
Stratford upon Avon Racecourse
12.43 - Stadmallen makes his racecourse debut ten days later than intended, as we felt the ground didn’t suit at Ludlow Racecourse that day. Gets better good ground here and having shown some ability at home, we’re hoping for a good run today. Jordan Nailor rides and claims 5lbs.
1.13 - Felicissimus is now a non-runner.
2.53 - Templehills has returned to us following a spell at the Jonjo O’Neill yard. Had previously won four chases for us, the last two years ago from a mark of 137. Up to 144 after, he now finds himself on a handy looking 120. Jack Savage rides and takes off a further 7lbs.
Market Rasen Racecourse
3.21 - Kingofthecotswolds returns to hurdles after chasing last season. Had one win over timber the season before over 2m on good ground at Ludlow Racecourse. Over 2m 4+f on similar ground today, we’re hopeful of a good run. Each way prospects, Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
4.31 - Luckofthedraw is a course and distance winner who also went well over the same to be 5th of 15 on his seasonal bow here three weeks ago. That would have done him a lot of good and from a pound lower mark of 129. Seems to like the fences here and is again likely to get amongst them where it matters. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard.
5.06 - Imperial Acolyte made his chasing debut at Newton Abbot last month but unfortunately came down at the second fence. Effectively starts again here, but is much better than that and can put that behind him with a good show today. Should be suited by the track, trio of 2m 3f and the good ground. More to come, Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
