6th May - Kempton & Warwick
Three runners tomorrow.
Kempton 1.45pm West Coast Flyer runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.
West Coast Flyer had decent form on the flat before joining me, he has been very natural and professional about his schooling from day one.
This is a completely different ball game for him but I’ve no reason to think he won’t deal with it, he seems to like his jumping and more importantly he bounces off the schooling ground as if he’s thoroughly enjoyed himself.
West Coast Flyer is an extremely tall horse, he doesn’t look like a flat type, he’s very easy to deal with.
4.05pm Mr Dorrell Sage runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m 4f.
Dorrell has had a disappointing season for various reasons, mainly wind issues.
We stepped him up in trip last time out and he ran better than the bare form suggests.
He had to be dropped in, he ran to the line and he wasn’t beaten that far, it was an improvement on his previous runs.
Dorrell is a good looking son of Sageburg, he has ability we just need him to re sparkle.
They will be ridden by Leighton Aspell.
3.15pm Seaston Spirit runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m 1f.
Keith has had a nightmare winter mainly due to the fact that he wants heavy ground.
He began the season over fences and he was placed but when he struggled to get the conditions he required he seemed to lose his confidence so we reverted to hurdles.
If a horse needs heavy ground and you end up constantly running on faster than ideal conditions everything can happen too quickly for them and it can affect their confidence.
Keith is a cheeky horse at home but easy to deal with in the yard.
He will be ridden by Harry Beswick.
West Coast Flyer and Dorrell Sage are looked after and will be led up by Marcel Danihel, west Coast Flyer is ridden out by either Archie Sherwood or Andy Llewellyn. Dorrell is ridden out by Janine Hamilton.
Seaston is looked after will be led up and is ridden at home by Erin Pringle.
