Early Bird – 7th April

Well, a great winner today having been advised at 11/1 under a good ride from Mattie Bachelor. Took a lot of hard work but held off all challengers.

Lets hope we can continue that into the weekend.

3:00 Kelso – Seldom Inn

Runner up in this race last year when favourite and now 6lb lower in the weights. Admittedly came into the race in better form last year though not exactly been disgraced this time round. A couple of runs over hurdles along with two runs in chases where conditions didn’t favour the horse (Trip too short then small field and having to make own running) has meant it has a significant weight pull with last years winner. Has an excellent record here, the worse the ground the better for this horse whilst I suspect after finishing runner up in this last year then the goal is to go win it this time round.

7:15 Wolverhampton – Nick Vedder

Three runs for the yard, placing every time though this looks an ideal opportunity to get its head in front again. Travelled well before getting caught late on over 1m, the drop back to 7f makes sense. Well drawn to get a good position it would be disappointing if not up to winning a race like this.
