Stratford upon Avon Racecourse
Two at Stratford upon Avon Racecourse today.
3.00 - Sir George Somers is a versatile performer having run on the flat turf and all-weather flat, before going chasing. He’s had a couple of chases so far, stepping up to 2m 3+f today after a promising effort to be 4th of 8 at this track over 2f shorter about 5 weeks ago. Has dropped 5lbs to 82 which should put him in with a chance of making the places but with some improvement to come may hopefully just have enough to threaten these and remove the maiden tag. Tom Bellamy rides.
5.20 - Little Pop returns after almost 20 months off but 7lbs lower mark of 118 than his last run when pulled up at Doncaster in December ‘17. That is the same as his last winning mark at Worcester Racecourse a couple of months previously and returning in good order, he has a strong each way chance, though we would hope for better. Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
