End Of A Season At Perth
It has been a difficult year to say the least for everyone and we look forward to the new season and welcoming visitors back to the yard as well as hopefully many fun days ahead at the races with all of you.
We have three days of Perth runners ahead of us to finish off the season.
He has finished third on the last two occasions and he looked last time as though he would be suited to step back up to three miles so hopefully that will suit and he can run a nice race. Brian Hughes rides.
2.30pm Castle Rushen
He has had a good season, winning twice on his first two runs. He ran well to finish a staying on third last time out in the Grade 2 Premier novices hurdle at Kelso, the longer trip today will hopefully suit him well. Brian Hughes rides.
3.35pm Serious Ego
He won nicely at Haydock in January on heavy ground. If he copes with the dryer conditions he should run a nice race again. Sean Quinlan rides.
4.10pm Headscarf Lil
She got off the mark at Mussleburgh in November and then had a mid winter break with a spring/summer campaign in mind. Hopefully she will improve for her comeback run at Carlisle last time. Sean Quinlan rides.
He had a winter break following a couple of disappointing runs last Autumn. He ran with more promise on his comeback run last time at Haydock back with headgear on (visor). Hopefully he can continue to build on that run. Danny Mcmenamin rides.
3.30pm Skiddaw Tara
It was disappointing that he didn’t really take to chasing on his first couple of runs and so he was back over hurdles last time at Kelso where he ran a better race to finish fourth and hopefully he can build on that run if the ground doesn’t dry out too much for him. Ryan Day rides.
3.15pm Big Bad Bear
He has had a bit of a mixed season, he won at Doncaster in November and then he didn’t get into any sort of rhythm in the Lanzarote hurdle at Kempton the time after. He ran better at Newcastle last time and hopefully with the ground and track to suit (he is a previous course and distance winner) he will be able to produce his best form. Brian Hughes rides.
3.50pm My Old Gold
She has been a wonderful mare for her connections Tor Side Racing. She has had a good season, winning a listed chase earlier in the season at Carlisle and recently ran a couple of really solid races to finish second. It would be lovely if she can gain another win but whatever happens she will surely produce some lovely foals in the future. She is a previous winner of the race two years ago and hopefully she may be able to repeat that success. Brian Hughes rides.
5.20pm Everyday Champagne
He made his debut at Ayr in January on heavy ground, he finished fourth but he struggled a little bit with the extreme conditions. Nevertheless the experience should have still done him good and with much drier conditions he should be able to build on that run. Brian Hughes rides.
5.20pm Release the Kraken
He has showed promise on both his starts so far, most recently finishing second at Hexham. He looks as though he may be suited to a step up in trip once he goes hurdling as he has stayed on strongly in both his runs so far. If the ground doesn’t dry out too much for him then hopefully he can give another good account. Callum Bewley rides.
Good luck to all runners and riders.
