SUMMER HOLIDAYS APPROACHING

13-04-2018

THIS WEEK The continued April showers has meant another quieter week out on the track with very few runners to report on.  So as we edge closer to the end of the National Hunt season with Aintree now under way, a number of the horses have started to get let down and turned out for their well earned summer breaks.  Whilst many others are still fighting fit and ready for a run once the ground finally dries out! Summer Holidays text REPORTS Guiding Stars ran a much improved race in a first time hood at Market Rasen on Wednesday. He relaxed nicely on the front end and set a good gallop under Gavin Sheehan. He turned into the straight with every chance but wasn’t able to go with the impressive winner Dorking Boy. He stuck on in gutsy fashion to just lose 3rd in the shadow of the post. This was a much better performance from him and he can only progress from here. Tierra Verde ran another improved race to finish 2nd at Taunton yesterday. She travelled nicely behind the lead for much of the race and jumped well in the main. She got slightly tapped for toe turning into the straight but stayed on well to finish 2nd. This was another improved run from her and her turn should be just around the corner. Tierra Verde 2 ENTRIES Sadly we have had to make Simply the Betts a non-runner today since there has been too much rain over night resulting in a going change to very soft.  He will now go for his summer break and we are very much looking forward to his novice hurdling campaign for next season. Anemoi holds multiple bumper entries this week but is likely to miss all of them due to testing ground. He got away with testing ground at Huntingdon last time but will seen in his best light on a sound surface. He’s a well bred, straightforward individual with a massive future. Ruby Yeats holds has been declared to run at Chepstow tomorrow.  She ran well for a long way at Hereford last time but didn’t see the trip out on her first try at 3 miles. She’s come out of the race well and the step back in trip should help her. She is resonably handicapped if she can put it all together. She is likely to wear blinkers for the first time. Ruby Yeats 3 The Go Tou Man is entered in the same two races but is unlikely to run because of the testing ground. He ran a excellent race on his penultimate start at Huntingdon, before getting stuck in the mud at Taunton last time. There’s plenty more to come from him when the ground dries up. Charlie Papa Lima holds an entry at Sedgefield today, but will miss the race due to testing ground. He’s done plenty of schooling and is ready to make his debut over fences when the ground dries. He’s in good form at home and attractively handicapped on his best form. Let’s Get At It holds bumper entries at Chepstow, Ffos Las and Carlisle in the coming days. He ran with credit on racecourse debut at Ludlow despite showing signs of greeness and has been given time to mature since. He has improved physically and mentally since Ludlow and he will appreciate the step up to 2m. He is ready to run an improved race, but wouldn’t want heavy ground. Spirit of Rome is set to return from a mini break in the coming days and her first entry is at Kempton on Wednesday. This would be her first race on the flat for us off an attractive mark of 50. She has been very consistent for us over hurdles and may well appreciate a return to the flat. She has hurdle options later in the month. End Image   Until next week...
