Trueshan may run in November Handicap at Doncaster
Trueshan, one of the most improved horses in training, has rocketed 10lb up the ratings to a mark of 103 after his brilliant victory over First In Line in the Old Rowley Cup at Newmarket 10 days ago.
Successful in three of his four races this season – he was runner-up in the other one – Trueshan is not finished yet, and Alan revealed this morning that he might well run him again in the prestigious November Handicap at Doncaster on the final day of the current campaign.
Alan said:”The November is a possibility as there is nothing else left for him. We have schooled him over hurdles and he jumps well, but we have decided to keep on the Flat next season when he could well be an Ebor horse.
“Trueshan really impressed me at Newmarket, but I think he might progress again with another winter on his back, which is quite exciting.”
Alan also said that a hurdling campaign for stablemate Beringer, runner-up to Lord North in the £150,000 Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket recently, has also been put on ice.
He added:”Beringer has schooled over hurdles but the owners are keen to keep him on the Flat. We did enter him for the inaugural running of the Bahrain International in Bahrain on November 22, and he might well go here.
“The handicapper put Beringer up 7lb after Newmarket, so his new mark of 104 means that he would definitely get in the Bahrain race and if he does not go out there we will put him away and bring him back on the level next year.”
