We are back on the Flat tomorrow at Goodwood and Doncaster
Our Flat team have started well, with Coeur de Lion unlucky not to win at Newbury recently, while Seaborough also did not enjoy the best of fortune when beaten half a length at Chelmsford yesterday, so the stable form augurs well for Who Dares Wins when he heads off up the M6 for next week’s Chester Cup in which he finished an honourable fourth last year.
However, more immediately we have two runners at Goodwood tomorrow and also a brace at Doncaster, and Alan said:”Beringer, who runs in the finale down at Goodwood, is a three-year-old I like. He won very well at Salisbury but was then disappointing, so we had him hobdayed in the close season and I am hoping that will make a big difference.
“He is drawn wide which is a never a help, especially in such a competitive handicap, but it will be good to get him rolling again.”
Our other runner on the Sussex Downs is Fields of Fortune, who carries the Who Dares Wins colours in the opening handicap. He was a good second at Salisbury when he last tackled this trip on the level.
On Town Moor we have Dino Velvet, on a high after his recent win over hurdles at Ayr’s Scottish National meeting, having his first run on the Flat since he finished fourth at Chester in the autumn of 2016, while he will be accompanied up there by Parmenter, who made a pleasing comeback after a break at Kempton recently. We have booked champion apprentice David Egan to ride.
