Busy Wednesday with 6 runners at 3 tracks across the country
It was great to have a winner last night with Peerless breaking his Maiden at Wolvehrhampton for owners Ebury Racing 3. I hope we can keep the ball rolling today and we have 6 chances to do so!
We have three runners at Bath, with Flotilla & Tenaya Canyon kicking off the afternoon both lining up in the 2yo Novice over 5f at 2.10pm.
Flotilla has been in good form at home and I hope to see her run well today at Bath where both the ground and trip should be fine for her. She does need to improve on what we have seen so far and hopefully she will do just that today.
Tenaya Canyon is really well and I’m expecting a much better run today at Bath than on her debut. I think 5f could be on the sharp side for her but she is definitely not slow and hopefully she can run with promise.
Bright Eyed Eagle completes the three runners and heads to post at 5.35pm. He is in good order and steps up in trip today which I think will suit. The ground should be fine for him so we will see how he gets on over this extended distance.
We have one runner at Nottingham in the Listed Rous Stakes at 3.45pm. Maygold seems to have come out of her disappointing run at Newmarket well. The ground at Nottingham will be ideal for her and I think back to 5f is exactly what she needs. She has not been at her best so far this year for whatever reason but I do feel that there are excuses for those runs so I’m hoping that back over 5f with Silvestre on board and on soft ground will see her run a big race.
It is then over to Kempton for our final two runners of the day.
4.55pm - Blue Dawn (pictured) is a lovely improving filly and this trip and track should really suit her. Another step forward should see her hopefully break her Maiden today.
6.00pm - Desert Doctor has been training really well and I think will have come on for his return to action a month ago. He looks great and this looks a good spot for him, although I do think that the favourite will be very hard to beat. We don’t have a great draw but it’s a decent pot so I am hoping he can run a big race.
