KELSO AND UTTOXETER OUR VENUES ON SUNDAY.
The predicted going for Uttoxeter on Sunday is good, and that will be no problem for our one representative at the track, when Enfin Phil goes to post at 5.07.pm. The race is over two and a half miles, and is a 0-120 handicap hurdle, with Alain Cawley retaining the ride. Enfin Phil had struggled for form since winning at Catterick back in January 2020, but signified he could soon be back in the winners enclosure soon, when finishing third, beaten by six lengths at Kelso 25 days ago, this drop back in trip of two furlongs will be to his advantage, and he is now 7lb below that last winning mark.
We also send two up to Kelso to contest the Mares only bumper over two miles at 5.25.pm, where the predicted going is good.
Dat'shallot will be partnered by Conor O'Farrell who also rode her on her debut at Sedgefield 19 days ago, where after looking in need of the experience, she made some late headway to finish fourth, beaten by 24 lengths. Her breeding suggests that we wont see the best of her until she goes over hurdles, and maybe even eventually fences. We also run the newcomer Wadacre Monika, who will be partnered by the ex champion jockey, and this seasons leading rider so far, Brian Hughes.Wodacre Monika is out of a once raced Mark Of Esteem mare, for whom this will be her first racecourse representative. Her Sire is the brilliant stayer Yeats, so she may well need a trip in time.
