GERYVILLE TO RUN IN THE DURHAM NATIONAL.

We have three runners at Sedgefield on Sunday, where hopefully they will miss the worst of the weather, and the going is currently described as good, good to soft in places.


Onenightintown who wouldn't want the ground to get any worse than good to soft, runs in the first race at 2.05.pm, in the conditional jockeys 0-105 handicap chase, over two miles and five furlongs, with our stable conditional jockey Josh Thompson able to claim 10lb. Onenightintown was a course and distance winner from 1lb lower than now last September, and a repeat of that would probably be good enough to take this, but he wouldn't want too much rain to fall.


Ballylinch ran in 11 Irish point to points before joining us back in the spring. In Ireland he was a point winner and also placed on a further four occasions, and since arriving at the yard he has taken in three novice hurdles in order to get his handicap mark. His first start for us at Market Rasen in June was full of promise, and when weighing that up with the best of his Irish form, his opening mark of 88 looks very fair. He makes his chase debut at 3.15.pm, in the 0-105 handicap chase, over three miles and three furlongs, with the champion jockey Brian Hughes taking the ride.


Geryville stays forever, so he will appreciate every yard of the three miles and five furlongs of the prestigious 'Vickers Bet Durham National' Class 2, 0-145 handicap chase at 4.25.pm, where his regular rider Brian Hughes will once again do the steering. Geryville never got the good ground he relishes in six starts last term, but still managed an eye catching second in the 'Lincolnshire National' at Market Rasen on Boxing Day last year, on good to soft ground, from 3lb lower than now.
