31st October & 1st November
Republican had a good season over hurdles last winter culminating in a really nice run in the EBF final at Kempton, he finished sixth that day but he was staying on nicely at the finish.
Republican has done plenty of schooling and touch wood he’s been very good at home, he’s clever on his feet and he’ll need to be because they are big fences around here.
Republican is very laid back in himself and he’s very easy to deal with.
He will be ridden by Tom Cannon.
Indy won her only race to date, a mares bumper over 2m at Worcester, she was tough that day because she’s not over big and she got bumped a few times in the last half mile.
Unfortunately Indy picked up an injury after that, she was rolling in her stable and kicked the wall, she damaged her stifle so we had to send her away to recover.
Indy is very diminutive in size but not in heart, she is as tough as teak and loves her work and her schooling.
Indy is sweet to deal with and she just wants to please.
She will be ridden by Sam Twiston Davies.
Felix ran well first time out at Fontwell when finishing third, I mentioned at the time that he’d previously been a playboy both at home and in his races but he really put everything into that run and it took him a while to recover.
Felix was quiet for a while afterwards so we’ve given him plenty of time to get over that race, he’s been fresh and well again lately.
This is a new trip for him today and I think now he’s stronger this should suit, he’s pretty laid back in his races which will also help him to get the extra two furlongs.
Felix is good to deal with these days now he’s grown up, he was a bit of a goon as a youngster.
He will be ridden by Kai Lenihan who is able to claim a valuable 10lbs off his back.
Republican is looked after and he will be led up by Lenka Helmecka, he is ridden at home by Cameron Baker.
Squaw Vallee is looked after and she will be led up by Mila Lunackova, she is ridden at home by Lenka Helmecka.
Felix is looked after, will be led up and is ridden at home by Cameron Baker.
