Here’s hoping we start June with a flyer
Considering May is traditionally one of the quieter months at Barbury, Alan will be well satisiied with four winners and eight places in the last two weeks, and he will be hoping that June, which starts tomorrow, continues in a similar vein.
Deyrann de Carjac made a winning chasing debut over the stiff Cartmel fences on Wednesday, and our focus is again over jumps tomorrow, when we have a couple of runners at Worcester and one at Hexham.
Potterman won his first handicap hurdle at Warwick three weeks ago and will hopefully do the same on his debut over fences at Worcester, where JP McManus’s The Jigger, a disappointing favourite on his debut at the same meeting, looks to redeem his reputation in the bumper.
Green Etoile makes his jumping debut at Hexham, and, having shown improved form to win his first handicap on the Flat at Salisbury, coming from last to first to do so, he is an interesting recruit to the juvenile hurdling scene.
Fingers crossed, though, that the ground will not deteriorate as Green Etoile enjoyed the fast going on the Wiltshire course,
