Stormy this morning, an enormous wind, quiet tonight, colder – by no means a uninteresting second! Busy day tomorrow with our first go to of the season to the deep south and three runners at Newcastle. Sandown is our southern vacation spot and Up Helly Aa King has already been there for twenty-four hours forward of lining up within the invaluable Veterans Remaining at 3:00. This has been the plan since he received the qualifier in February final 12 months, and he has finished nothing improper since with stable runs at Kelso and Haydock. The ultimate is exceptionally aggressive however I prefer to suppose he can play a component off his gentle weight. Forecast rain within the morning will flip the bottom smooth, however that shouldn’t be a problem. 18 run and Bruce Lynn rides.
Hoping for a drop of rain at Newcastle the place the bottom is predominantly good to smooth. Dubai Days is our first runner within the 1:23, I’m barely wishing that he had taken up his engagement at Musselburgh final weekend as a result of this appears equally aggressive. He’s in good type although and will recognize the step as much as 2 miles 4 furlongs. 10 run and Conor O’Farrell rides.
We then run latest Haydock winner Theme Tune within the 1:58. This additionally appears aggressive, however he received effectively that day and might hopefully be concerned once more notably if it rains. 9 run and Danny McMenamin rides.
Lastly we run Gipsy Lee Rose within the 3:43, she has an enormous weight and would possibly discover the journey a bit sharp except the bottom eases. If it does, she has a terrific probability. 9 run and Brian Hughes rides.
At Musselburgh earlier within the week, That’s A Given ran a terrific race to be third, Broadway Joe discovered the bottom too deep, and while he travelled effectively for a good distance, Extremely Violet pulled up – not fairly certain why however he blew surprisingly arduous.
