Nikolayeva won in impressive style for her owners at Catterick on Wednesday. Conditions were awful, proper heavy ground but Nikolyeva loved it and could have done another circuit.
The form is perhaps to be taken with a pinch of salt as only three horses ran any type of race. The performance told us which season Eva will run in once she goes jumping. She could be a lot of fun over hurdles in time.
Black Anthem runs today in the 2:45 at Fontwell. The race is a step up in class for Black Anthem. The handicapper had his say after recent wins. The trip of 3m2f would a slight question mark whilst Black Anthem wouldn't want any rain to fall. He's in good form so we'll give it a go.
