Drying ground will help both our Cheltenham runners
We have definitely not yet turned our back on the 2022-23 jumps season, and before heading north of the border for Saturday’s Scottish Grand National, we have a runner at each stage of Cheltenham’s two-day meeting which starts today.
Alan said:”Fingers crossed the ground continues to dry up as we have purposely kept Deyrann de Carjac fresh for the Silver Trophy. He has run some good races at Cheltenham (he ran a cracker to finish third at their New Year meeting in 2020) and has been in good form after his winter break.”
Tomorrow’s mares novice chase has long been the target for Wynn House, and, assessing her chance, Alan added:”She will also appreciate decent ground, and, though we knew conditions would be too soft for her at Newbury last month, she needed her third qualifying run and has come back fine.
“Wynn House schooled well on Monday and, while this two and a half miles would be her minimum trip these days, she will hopefully go well with her light weight (10st 4lb).
