Three runners today.

12.15pm Robinesse runs in a mares handicap hurdle over 2m 5f.
Robinesse ran a blinder last time out after eighteen months off the racecourse, the winner won nicely but she stayed on well to finish second.
Robinesse is a half sister to Jersey Bean but whereas he likes good ground it cannot be too soft for her, she’s a thorough galloper like him too.
Robinesse is easy to deal with, she’s very lazy in her work but loves her schooling.

1.15pm Manning Estate runs in a novice hurdle over 2m 1f.
Flash was a good second on his hurdles debut last month at Plumpton, the winner of that race is also declared today but he will be seven pounds worse off for beating Flash by a length and a half.
Coole Well made all that day and Flash got caught a bit flat footed coming down the hill before staying on all the way to the line and I think today’s track will suit him better.

Flash is a cheeky horse by nature, he’s a good work horse and he has a pretty fierce buck in him at times..... keeping Flora on her toes.

They will be ridden by Tom Garner.

12.35pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a novice hurdle over 2m 3f.
Cilaos has been a work in progress in his two starts so far this season to get him to relax in his races, he’s a horse that will switch off nicely in behind other horses but once he gets upsides them he can be very strong. 
His first run for us at Chepstow was really encouraging, he stayed on from well out of his ground to be a good fourth in a competitive race. 
His last race wasn’t quite so good but I’m inclined to think the heavy ground at Lingfield didn’t suit him.

Cilaos is a big handsome boy, he’s a good work horse who enjoys his jumping.

He will be ridden by Harry Beswick.
