We have declared two runners for Haydock on Wednesday, where the going is described as heavy, but there is no inspection planned.
Foster'sisland has never run on ground described as heavy, but he is proven on soft, having won on that surface four times. He made his seasonal reappearance at Carlisle 31 days ago, where he showed up prominently until the lack of a recent run took it's toll, and he weakened in to fifth. Foster'sisland who always gives his best, runs at 12.38.pm, in the 0-130 handicap hurdle, over the extended two miles and two furlongs, with his regular rider Emma Smith-Chaston in the saddle.
You Say Its Over who was placed in two Irish point to points earlier this year, including once in heavy ground, ran her best race for us 26 days ago at Hexham, also on a heavy surface, when finishing second. She was pushed up 1lb for that, but is now also running from 5lb out of the weights, but Emma Smith-Chaston who rides, will be able to use her 3lb claim. You Say Its Over runs at 2.55.pm, in the 0-110 conditional jockeys handicap hurdle, over three miles.
