31st August - Newton Abbot
Two runners today
Paseo runs in the Handicap Chase at 4:55pm
Paseo ran slightly better last time out, he has'nt run over fences for a while and has schooled well so this looked like a nice race for him. He has been in good form at home and we're hopeful of another posotive run.
Paseo is ridden by Daryl Jacob
Manning Estate runs in the Handicap Hurdle at 6:00pm
Manning has had a good holiday and seems to be in great order at home. Manning never really took to fences last season and also the ground being soft for most of the season we never really got on good terms with him.
He has had a nice break and was brought back earlier than the rest of the other horses so we could get the better ground which he likes.
Manning is wearing a visor today just to make him concentrate on the job, this is the furthest he has run over but after winning over 3 miles at Doncaster I think he should get the trip fine as Newton Abbot is a much tighter track.

Paseo is looked after, ridden at home and will be lead up by Amy Deans
Manning Estate is looked after and led up by Beth Dutton and ridden at home by Kai Linehan
