One runner today at Huntingdon.

3.00pm Jurby runs in a novice handicap chase over 2m 4f.
Jurby has run twice over fences at Hereford over two miles, he found it all happening a bit too quickly for him when finishing third on good ground first time out.
I had intended to step him up in trip next time out but with no suitable alternatives I went back to Hereford on soft ground last month, he didn’t enjoy the ground and never got into any rhythm when finishing fourth.

It is an extra half a mile today and hopefully the watered ground will be ride good which should suit him.
So far his jumping on course has been good.

Jurby is a sweet horse at home, he was very highly strung when he first arrived but he has settled right down now.

He will be ridden by Aidan Coleman.

Jurby is looked after by Mila Lunackova, he will be led up by Amy Deans and he is ridden at home by Stefan Namesansky.
