We look to have solid chances at both Cheltenham and Newmarket this week
Dingo Dollar, denied his chance of Scottish National glory last week-end, goes for compensation tomorrow in the three and a quarter mile handicap chase.
Alan said:”I would have loved to have run Dingo Dollar at Ayr as it was his main target all season, but the wind dried the ground up so much on Saturday morning and it was definitely too fast to take a chance.
“Good to soft, which we looked like getting on the Thursday, would have been fine, but the weather conspired against us.” Hopefully, Cheltenham won’t be any faster than good.
We also run Fidux down there, and he steps back up to trip for the two and a half mile handicap hurdle. He has enjoyed a two-month break and is ready to resume on ground which should suit him.
On the Flat we have Aweedram going for the finale at Newmarket, and Alan is looking forward to see how he shapes in his first handicap and has booked William Buick, who teamed up with Barbury to win the Spring Cup at Newbury last week-end.
Alan said:”Aweedram had three runs as a juvenile last year but got a bit colty in the process and he has been gelded in the meantime. He showed us plenty of promise, and, hopefully, he can build on that through the summer months.”
We have also declared Beringer for Newmarket on Thursday, and tune in tomorrow to find out Alan’s thoughts about our Lincoln third.
