Double-header on Thursday
Wednesday Feb 10
Alan has a great strike-rate at Huntingdon, and, though we have only two runners there tomorrow, he is hopeful that both will run well.
He said:”We thought about bringing Genstone Trail back at Towcester last week, but three miles on soft ground was a big ask, so she goes instead here in the two miles and three furlongs chase. She has been off for a long time but is ready to start back.
“We run My Khaleesi in the bumper. She was a promising second on her debut at Warwick before Christmas and has had a good break so is ready to roll again.
“We have four going up to Doncaster tomorrow. Winter Escape won on his debut there in December. He travelled well and quickened up well, so he could be an exciting prospect and, having missed a week or two’s work after pulling a hamstring, he is back in good form and ready to pick up more experience.
“Shadarpour goes for the staying handicap hurdle. He has been running well and any improvement in the ground would enhance his prospects, though he is creeping up the handicap.
“Willoughby Hedge was beaten a long way at Warwick last time, but he had been off the track for a long time so I was happy enough. He, too, needs more experience. He was going well when he tipped up at Newbury previously.
“Finally, Kerrow runs in the EBF Qualifier. He, too, has been performing well, and if the ground continues to improve it would increase his chances as well.”
