26th October - Cheltenham
One runner today at Cheltenham.
5.30pm Lady In Hiding runs in a bumper over 2m.
Lady is a half sister to Hitherjaques Lady and she ran with promise on her debut at Newbury when finishing fourth.
I had wanted to run her again but she picked up a lung infection which she took her a while to recover from so we roughed her off and she had a good long holiday.
Lady isn’t as big as her half sister but she is more feisty, Hitherjaques was a bit timid around other horses whereas Lady is the opposite and you wouldn’t want to get too close to her backend for fear getting kicked.
Lady works nicely enough, she’s definitely improved from her last race, this is probably aiming a bit high and I’d have preferred to have kept her in races against her own sex but her owner can get to the meeting and he was keen to see her run.
She will be ridden by Leighton Aspell.
Lady is looked after and will be led up by Mila Lunackova, she is ridden at home by Janine Hamilton.
