Wet Wet Wet, that’s about it really. Ascot has gone, conditions will be awful up and down the country. France tomorrow for the Arc de Triomphe. In Swoop EW at 10-1 would be my pick, he’ll get the through the heavy ground and will be staying on when most have cried enough.
We send Nikolayeva to Redcar for the 1m6f handicap. This will be the hardest race Eva has run in to date. The race revolves around Cornerstone Lad. Winner of the Fighting Fifth and runner in the Champion Hurdle, he holds a rating in the 150’s over hurdles.
Back on the flat today off just 71, Cornerstone Lad could have 20lbs in hand. The ground will be fine for Eva, the race should be a proper test which will also suit.
