We are off to Kempton on Saturday
We were disappointed with Running Cloud‘s jumping debut at Newbury pre-New Year, but Alan is hopeful of better when the youngster reappears in the juvenile hurdle at Kempton on Saturday.
He said:”Newbury was a strange race and he got somewhat isolated, but he worked well last week-end and seems in good shape.”
We also run Tiffin Top in the same race, and Alan added:”He was a bit gassy early on when he made his debut for us at Taunton, but he jumped well and there ought to be plenty of improvement in him.”
Dino Velvet is our other Kempton runner, his target being the Unibet Handicap Hurdle. Alan said:”He ran well enough over the course before Christmas, but I fear he is still too high in the handicap, though we’ll persevere with him until he goes to the sales in the spring.”
Of our two runners at Wetherby, Alan said:”Simply A Legend looked progressive a couple of years ago, but this will be his first race since he chased home Might Bite over hurdles here in the spring of 2016, so, while he looks to have retained plenty of ability, he is sure to need the run.
“Fourshoes is a home-bred filly of Mrs Prowting’s who has been showing me plenty at home, so I am looking forward to getting her started in the bumper, while we also launch one in the bumper at Warwick, Millstone.”
