Included was a ready winner for us and her owners at Bangor on Friday. It was a strange race with bizarre gambles beforehand. We’ve learnt over the years not to pay much attention to things like this. We pleasingly secured a nice win. Included is a good mare, she just takes a bit of time to get right each season.
Aldrin returned yesterday after a layoff and was badly in need of the run. He travelled well but got tired quickly. The outing will bring him forward a good deal.
Worcester today with two runners, Included goes again in the 3:45 then Settimo Milanese runs in the last race at 5:15. Charlie Hammond rides both horses.
We have little choice running Included again, she’ll go up in the handicap a good whack from next week. It’s quite possible this race will come too quickly but Included seems fine and we’ll give it ago.
Settimo Milanese will have improved from his debut 2nd place for us. He’s crying out for a fence and soft ground long term. It’s possible he might find this a bit sharp but he’s in good form.
