April 21st - Perth
Two runners today at Perth.
Peur De Rien won nicely last time out at Kempton following up a good second at Doncaster on his previous outing.
Roger is a confidence horse who won first time out at Uttoxeter before pulling up on his next two starts when losing the plot, I hope he’s turned the corner on those issues and I’ve no reason to believe he hasn’t.
Roger is a kind horse who is easy to deal with in all ways.
Ocean Drifter was far too keen last time out at Sandown on horrible ground, he went out like alight and pulled up going to the last. He was found to have lost a shoe but I honestly don’t think it made any difference on that occasion.
Murphy is a buzzy horse and we have fitted him with a hood again today in the hope that he will relax more on this step up in trip.
Although he’s an easy horse to deal with I wish Murphy would just chill a bit because he is a three mile chaser in the making.
They will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Peur De Rien is looked after by Cameron Baker, he will be led up by Gracie O’Reilly who shares riding him out at home with Tarnya.
Ocean Drifter is looked after and will be led up by Beth Dutton, he is ridden at home by Kai Lenihan.
