21st February - Huntingdon
One runner today at Huntingdon.
3.25pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m.
Cilaos is a big good looking horse who has been very keen early on in his races, we’ve had to teach him to switch off, so at times he has been running on well from uncompromising positions.
Cilaos works really nicely at home but again he has to be ridden with restraint otherwise he is very strong on the gallops.
I’d like to think he’s turned the corner now and therefore he can be ridden closer to the pace in his races, this is a fast track which will help.
This is his first run in a handicap and 115 looks fair on what he’s shown so far.
Cilaos is pretty straightforward, he was very, very strong at the start of the season but Nick has done a good job of relaxing him and he’s fairly chilled now.
Cilaos is looked after and will be led up by Jana Stefanova, he is ridden at home by Nick Bentley.
