We have two runners this afternoon at Catterick and Ascot.
Nastasiya goes first in the 12:45 at Catterick.
Nastasiya showed plenty of promise on her first start over hurdles finishing 3rd. However, at Wetherby next time, Nastasiya lost any chance in the parade ring when boiling over. We've worked on a few things since and hope this will help today.
Leoncavallo runs at Ascot again in the 2:40.
Leon keeps bumping into unexposed younger horses that have pounds in hand. He has to be one of the most consistent high level two mile horses in the country and deserves his turn. The ground will be on the lively side and carrying top weight won't be easy, but Leoncavallo is tough as boots and will make them all work for the win.
