Two runners today at Doncaster.


Querry didn't run well on his reappearance at Wetherby, the ground was awful that day so I'm hoping he can put that race behind him.

Querry lost his way and confidence last season having shown a good level of form when he first arrived from France.

He can jump perfectly well and even though he did win a chase at Doncaster, when the probable winner had tack issues and unseated two out, he never looked totally happy over fences, hence the return to hurdles.


Querry is a lean type who is difficult to keep weight on, he is a sweet horse who is easy to do anything with.


He will be ridden by Jack Sherwood.



Safe Harbour has shown glimmers of ability on a racecourse but he has been a very backward horse to train, he's a big baby.

When I bought him at the sales from Norman Williamson he told me then all this horse does is eat and sleep, how right he was, Safe Harbour is so laid back at home he's horizontal.

Safe Harbour can work well but he is basically a lazy horse, in the autumn he was held up with a poison foot for a long time therefore he is behind the other horses so he will definitely improve for the run.


He will be ridden by Tom Garner.


Querry is looked after by Harry Beswick, he will be led up by Erin Pringle who also rides him at home.

Safe Harbour is looked after by C.J. he will be led up by Peter Macek and is ridden at home by Jan Soldan.
