Early Bird – 23rd May

Slightly unlucky Tuesday though we got a place from Royal Duchess, it wasn’t far off being a 16/1 winner. Still a nice place a return on our investment.

4:45 Warwick – Guerrilla Tactics

A winner at this track over hurdles before following up at Wincanton over these larger obstacles. That race had a strong feel to it with three subsequent scorers just in behind. Was rested over the winter returning in April though surprisingly on heavy ground having raced on good or better throughout its career. Was still in the process of running a good race when falling two out. May of then needed a boost in confidence next time as it disappointed somewhat a few weeks later. Given another month off it is only 2lb higher than when winning its handicap last year and should appreciate the return to better ground. If it can get into a good rhythm of jumping it can go close.
