Leicester 1.10pm Cilaos Glace runs in a novice handicap chase over 2m. Cilaos ran well on his seasonal debut when finishing second at Wetherby in October. He jumped right on occasions for no apparent reason but his jumping was basically good, and he was entitled to get a little tired on the run in after a seven month break since his previous outing.   Cilaos never really fired last season...

Four runners today.   Hereford 12.50pm Pebby New Moon runs in a maiden hurdle over 2m 3f. Pebbly shaped like a stayer on his only run to date, a bumper at Ffos Las, where he ran on well to finish second. Unfortunately he picked up an injury that day and hasn’t run for 597 days. Pebbly is as fit as I can get him at home but he will obviously improve for the outing, he’s a big ...

Weekend runners, all meetings are subject to inspections to see if racing can take place.   Wincanton 1.30pm Manning Estate is running in a handicap hurdle over 2m 5f. Flash is reverting to hurdles today after two perfectly adequate runs over fences where he jumped nicely but he just didn’t travel. I wanted to rekindle his enthusiasm by bringing him back to hurdles, I wouldn’t...

Three runners today, all of these horses have been waiting for some better ground. Lingfield is staging an all weather bumper card because of the numerous jumps meetings that have been lost to the weather recently.   Lingfield 1.20pm Volturnus runs in a 2m bumper. Volturnus has shown glimmers of ability over hurdles before picking up an injury and being sidelined for a year, his return to...

Weekend runners.   One runner today at Sandown.     Ru has run nicely in his first two races this season, two soft ground bumpers. He won impressively first time out at Newton Abbot and then finished a creditable second in a listed bumper at Cheltenham. This is his first run over hurdles today and he’s really going in at the deep end. I didn’t want to keep him to...

One runner today at Newbury.   Severano (aka Steve) has won both his starts over fences this season jumping well on both occasions, he won his last race by a long margin but it was a race that fell apart in the end because of the fast pace they went on such testing ground.   Steve has continued to school nicely at home since then and he is a decent work horse without being flashy. &...

One runner today at Huntingdon.   2.35pm Jersey Lady runs in a listed mares bumper over 2m.   Jersey Lady won her first race, a bumper at Ludlow and followed up that win with a good run in a listed mares bumper at Cheltenham when she finished a staying on well third.   Jersey Lady is from a good staying pedigree and she already has some black type, which will make her a ...

One runner today at Newbury.   Republican is a Non-Runner due to a slight temperature and not eating up.   After finishing second in a point to point on her debut Feodora hasn’t enjoyed the best of luck, she slipped up in a bumper and then ran poorly in two further races where the ground was pretty grim and she was unable to handle it at that stage of her career.   Feodo...

Two runners today at Plumpton   Bembridge runs in the Novice Hurdle at 12:15pm. Bembridge ran a creditable fifth in a bumper at Fontwell on his first run. The form of that race has worked out ok, he has come back from that race well and has been schooling nicely at home. I do think he'll appreciate further in time when he's stronger but this looks like a nice race for his hurdling debut. He...

Weekend runners.   One runner today at Doncaster. Bean is having a cracking season, he’s won his last two races and his confidence is sky high. He didn’t look convincing as a chaser before the application of blinkers, which were a recommendation of Henrietta Knight after she had him for two weeks of intensive schooling, and they have transformed him. Bean wasn’t a bad j...
