Racing & Bloodstock

I was pleased with Fetch It Yourself’s debut at Carlisle. She was green which can be expected as she had never had a racecourse gallop prior to running but she swung into the straight like a racehorse before weakening out of things later on. She was beaten by three horses all a year older that had each ran more than once in point to points giving them plenty of experience which showed in the later stages. She may now go hurdling.

Silver Coin

We go to Kelso on Saturday hoping they have had a shower of rain or two! Sounds Russian runs in the big race of the day. There are no easy races when you are rated 150 and this race has a mix of second season chasers and strong handicappers. It will be interesting to see how he gets on. Callum Bewley takes the ride. Edmond Dantes is next. He is dropping back in trip as he is a strong traveller who doesn’t quite see out his races as well as you would expect. He is stepping up in grade at the same time. Brian Hughes rides Ed. Silver Coin completes the trio as she makes her handicap debut. She should be suited by the trip but may not want the day to be a wash out (though the other two wouldn’t be inconvenienced). Her schooling has improved at home so hopefully she will put in na nice performance. Alan Doyle rides.
