Back on track

09-02-2017

THIS WEEK After a quiet spell with no runners we're pleased to pass on things are very much back on track, the horses are fresh and well and we're ready to get going again... ENTRIES Charlemar is set to face 10 rivals at Doncaster this afternoon.  As we mentioned last week he had a couple of options, but we have opted to stick to the 2m trip for the time being.  The switch to this left handed galloping track should be in his favour, as will the sounder surface.  He does carry a 10lb penalty for his two victories early in the season, but he’s still the one they all have to beat.  Chelsea Flyer is his main danger. IMG_5939   Flower Ball is set to have his next start over hurdles at Kempton tomorrow.  The flat track and better ground should suit him and although he hasn’t shown it on the track, he remains in good form at home.  He should get a mark after this run, which will give us lots of options moving forward. Wychwoods Brook is entered in the Veterans Series Qualifier at Exeter on Sunday.  He has been pulled up his last 2 starts under conditions that aren’t suitable, but that has meant he’s been dropped to a workable handicap mark.  He is a horse that’s at his best on very testing ground and granted those conditions he should run well. FullSizeRender 5   Ruby Yeats holds multiple entries over the next 10 days, the first of those being at Kempton on Friday.  The Kempton race looks very competitive so we are likely to wait for an alternative with her.  Her jumping slightly let her down at Hereford the last day, so she has been loose schooling at Henrietta Knight’s this week (see photo below), which has helped her a lot.  Ruby’s form looks strong, she is in excellent form at home and her mark looks very workable. Astrapaios is entered in Bumpers at Exeter on Sunday and Towcester on Wednesday, with the latter looking the likely target.  He ran a blinder at Ffos Las on racecourse debut and that form looks strong.  He has come out of the race a more professional horse and his work has improved, he should be very competitive wherever he runs.  Soft ground is very important to him. Until next week...
