Ces hope Tritonic has run well on Rowley Mile course before
Vivid Pink made a pleasing debut over hurdles to finish fourth at Exeter today, and, while the focus switches to the Flat tomorrow, with high-profile runners at Newmarket and York, not to mention Tritonic taking his chance in the Cesarewitch at HQ on Saturday, we are also back jumping at Chepstow, where Whispering Royal has his first run over timber in the Juvenile Hurdle.
Whispering Royal showed plenty of promise in three runs on the level in the summer, particularly when finishing third at Windsor. He schooled over hurdles this morning and is ready to try his luck at the winter game.
There are no stamina worries for the versatile Tritonic, who aims for the second leg of the autumn double, having picked up a bronze medal in this year’s Ascot Stakes, the big staying handicap at the Royal meeting.
Tritonic showed his liking for the Rowley Mile course when chasing home the smart Contact in a competitive handicap here 18 months ago. He has won on easy ground, so the fact that Newmarket are expecting a deluge of rain tomorrow before enjoying a fine day on Saturday, is not a major concern.
