DRAGONS WILL RISE LOOKS TO MAKE IT WIN NUMBER NINE.

We have three declared runners on Tuesday, with two travelling to Sedgefield for their seasons finale, and another making the slightly longer trip to Newcastle on the Tapeta, for their evening meeting.


The going at Sedgefield is good, and they are watering to maintain. Both of our representatives at Sedgefield will go head to head in a field of seven for the extended two miles bumper at 4.0.pm. Profiles Mix has raced on two previous occasions to date, and finished down the field both times, with his temperament getting the better of him, when boiling over before the start in both races. This will be his first start since December, with Becky Smith retaining the ride.


We also run I'm Dougal Rocks who makes his racecourse debut in the same event, with Becky Smith taking the ride. I'm Dougal Rocks is out of an unraced Nickname mare whose only other racecourse representative to date is his year younger half brother I Shut That D'Or, who has ran with credit on both his starts to date, including when finishing second on debut at Fontwell in February.


Dragons Will Rise is proving a major success story, having won eight of his last 13 starts, which has seen his mark climb from 49 to his current rating of 80. He goes to post at 6.30.pm, for a 0-80 handicap over 10 furlongs where he will be re-united by Robert Havlin who has won on him five times previously. The track and trip are proven to be to Dragons Will Rise's liking, and the further 3lb rise in the weights appears fair.
