Unfortunately, the weather has continued to play havoc with the fixture list this week which means our runners have been few and far between.
Thankfully, Fontwell has managed to survive the weather this afternoon and we send two lovely horses to the Sussex venue.
Duke Of Kilcorral ran a cracking race over course and distance last time out and we are hopeful that we could see some improvement in the 2m3f novices hurdle. It looks a competitive little contest on paper, but our lad has been performing well at home and we are keeping our fingers crossed for a big run.
Dandolo Du Gite is a horse I believe in, and we are hopeful of another impressive display in the bumper on the same card. We were satisfied with his debut under rules when 3rd at Wincanton and a wind op will hopefully aid his chances of being in the frame.
Looking ahead to the weekend, we will be aiming to continue our fine form on the flat with two heading to Wolverhampton on Saturday evening.
Seven Clans returned from a break to win at the same venue on Monday and we are hopeful of another classy display. He came out of his last race bucking and kicking so we are more than happy to make a quick reappearance, and Adam Kirby will be on board in the 1m1f handicap.
We also send Cape Banjo to Wolverhampton and he was a course and distance winner last time out over 1m4f. It was an impressive display last month from the horse and the hope is that we see some more improvement.
Arden Denis seems to save his best form for Uttoxeter, so we are hopeful we can see another solid run in the 3m handicap hurdle on Saturday afternoon. The trip and cround conditions should suit and he has been a consistent horse for us over the past year.
Finally, next week is exciting with the Grand National Meeting on the horizon and Kalondra (Manifesto Novices’ Chase) and Queen’s Magic (Mares’ Bumper) are two we are hoping to send to Liverpool.
