We are looking forward to our “night out at the local”
Wednesday July 20
Fingers crossed we escape the thunderstorms that are supposed to be heading our way, because we are planning a pleasant Thursday night at the races at our local Newbury track, and if either Jim Dandy or Giveaway Glance provide us with a winner the evening will go with an even bigger swing.
Alan said:”Jim Dandy was beaten less than two lengths by the winner, despite finishing only sixth over the course a fortnight ago, and he looked that day as he if he wanted going back up to this mile and a quarter, so, hopefully, he’ll be competitive in what looks a tight little handicap.
“Giveaway Glance ran a stormer on her comeback after more than eight months off when finishing second at Sandown last time, so one would think that she might improve a bit for that, in which case she could well be a player in the mile fillies handicap.”
We also have Royal Plaza running in the two-mile handicap hurdle at Worcester, and Alan added:”He shaped with a lot of promise in his first handicap there a couple of weeks ago, having previously been in the frame in two maiden hurdles, so off the same mark he should run well.”
