ON TUESDAY WE GO IN SEARCH OF A RED LETTER DAY.
We send two up to Hamilton on Tuesday when both Red Skye Delight and Red Amapola contest the 4.35.pm, a 0-55 hands and heels apprentice handicap over one mile, where the going at the time of writing is good to soft.
Red Skye Delight remains a maiden after 22 starts, 21 of which have been on the all weather. Her only start to date on turf was on a good to firm surface at Catterick on her last start 74 days ago, where she raced too freely early on, becoming unbalanced around two out, and then weakening. The pick of her form since joining us was under Hollie Doyle back in January at Wolverhampton where she finished second, a repeat of that would see her firmly in the mix, our stable apprentice Aiden Brookes can claim 6lb off her back.
We are also represented in the same colours by the lightly raced Red Amapola, who will be ridden by Sophie Clements who is attached to the yard of Karl Burke, Sophie will claim 5lb. Red Amapola ran with credit in three hot novices in June and July in order to get her first official mark. She made her handicap debut at Musselburgh 11 days ago, when after a slow start she found things happening too quickly over their sharp seven furlongs. This step up to a stiff mile on a softer surface will be a plus, her dam was a proven performer on going with give.
