DESARAY GIRL GOES IN SEARCH OF FURTHER LISTED SUCCESS.

Anyone who owns a half decent mare can't have too many complaints, when going in search of black type.

Desaray Girl has obviously got a touch of class judging by three of her performances last season, winning her maiden at Newcastle on her hurdles debut, winning at odds of 1/8 in a novice at Sedgefield, and most notably when winning a Listed race at Haydock just over a year ago.

Since arriving ay Oakwood Stables she has been highly tried in two runs. At Wetherby in October in the 'Bet 365' Listed mares hurdle, she gave herself no chance by racing too freely, and at Aintree last month in Class 2 handicap company, she dropped away after disputing the lead until four out.She has since had minor wind surgery, and if that has done the trick, she will be able to get her career back on course.

We send her down to Sandown for the Listed 'Unibet' mares hurdle, where she will face five rivals, four of which appear to share similar ability. The class act looks to be the Paul Nichols trained Stormy Ireland, but as they say, you should never be afraid of taking on one.The race is at 12.40.pm over a suitable extended two miles and three furlongs, on heavy ground which will suit, with Joe Colliver once again in the saddle.


Good luck to the connections, Resdev.
