One runner today at Leicester.

2.20pm Got Away runs in a handicap chase over 2m 4f.
Gloria was impressive here last time out, not in what she beat but the way she did it.....to pull well clear of capable opponents when carrying 12.7lbs in a matter of strides shows a lot of class.

I’ve always thought highly of Gloria but she has been so inconsistent so far, mainly through no fault of her own, she has had recurring issues with her feet this season which have limited her appearances and last season she had lapses in concentration which affected her jumping.

I’ve been perfectly happy with Gloria since she won here last time out but I will be happier once she strings a few good performances together.

Gloria is an enormous mare, she is so laid back she’s horizontal and she’s easy to deal with.

She will be ridden by Aidan Coleman (Leighton is unavailable because of a ban).

Got Away is looked after by Mila Lunackova, she will be led up by Flora Alessandroni and she is ridden at home by Stefan Namesansky.
