Chilly and moist tonight after heavy snow yesterday, winter climate for certain. A busy couple of days arising for us, climate allowing after all, with 4 runners tomorrow at Kelso and three at Haydock on Friday. The bottom at Kelso is heavy with an 8am inspection in case they get extra rain tonight than they count on, tender at Haydock. All of our Kelso runners needs to be advantageous on heavy floor and the primary up is current Ayr winner Allure Offensive within the 12.28.
Remarkably she has by no means run at Kelso and has inadvertently turned herself into an Ayr specialist, I don’t see why she woudln’t be capable of reproduce that type right here and if that’s the case she ought to run properly with journey & floor in her favour – Bruce rides and 12 run. Donny Boy drops again in journey to 2m within the 1.03, he received his bumper properly at Kelso and while we stay just a little unsure as to what is going to finally be his finest journey he ought to provide a very good account tomorrow – Richie McLernon rides and 9 run.
Current course winner Ned Tanner additionally takes a slight drop again in journey within the 1.38, that needs to be greater than made up for by the softer floor and while this appears a really aggressive warmth he should be within the combine once more – Conor O’Farrell rides and 12 run.
Lastly Fortescue Wooden runs within the 2.48, he received properly on hurdling debut however will should be very good to provide a lot weight to the cannily positioned favorite, we will solely do our greatest – Bruce rides and 9 run.
On to Haydock on Friday the place we begin with Clan Legend trying to provide 3 years plus to all his 10 rivals and weight to all bar 2 of them within the 2pm. He received this race in 2017 and it’s a advantageous testomony to the horse that 5 years later he strains up off a 5lb increased mark regardless of rising 13yo. His penultimate run was excellent and his final run might be ignored so regardless of the afore-mentioned I feel he’s able to operating an enormous race particularly if it retains raining.
We then run current course and distance winner Stainsby Woman within the 2.30pm, that was her third consecutive win and the handicapper has had his say once more however she appears to be thriving so will hopefully go properly – Equipment rides and 10 run.
Lastly we run Niceandeasy in The Final Fling Chase at 3.00, he was operating an enormous race within the Borders Nationwide earlier this month previous to falling on the 2nd final, he’s able to operating very properly off a really gentle weight as long as this doesn’t come too quickly and the bottom stays tender moderately than heavy – Conor O’Farrell rides and 13 run.
