We have one runner on Friday when Red Skye Delight will attempt to get off the mark on what is her 20th racecourse appearance, in the seven furlongs 0-50 classified stakes at 6.45.pm at Wolverhampton. This seven furlongs would be her minimum trip, but if Jack Garritty can get her quickly in to stride, she could have a few of these in trouble from stall 1.

RED SKYE DELIGHT. 26 April 2016 Clodovil-Sole Bay. Owner-Miss Rebecca Dennis.
Red Skye Delight has run on 19 occasions to date, all on the All Weather, and over a variety of distances between six to 10 furlongs.Although she is still a maiden, she has been placed second on four occasions, and third twice.Her dam raced just three times in 2012, placing twice for the David Elsworth yard, all at Kempton Park. Her sire Clodovil was the winner of the 2003 French Guineas.
Red Skye Delight made her debut in December 2018 from the Newmarket yard of Luke McJannet at Kempton, finishing seventh of the 13 runners, beaten six lengths, over seven furlongs.Two weeks later at Chelmsford she ran to a similar mark, before disappointing at the same track, but over 10 furlongs, in January 2019, and receiving her first handicap mark of 58.She made her handicap debut at Wolverhampton over six furlongs in March, where she made the running, but put her head in the air, and hung under pressure, going down by four and a half lengths, to finish sixth.At Chelmsford in July she ran well to be forth, before stepping back up to seven furlongs, to finish third at the same track in August.Her next two runs were both at Chelmsford again, this time over one mile, and she finished runner up both times, beaten half a length on each occasion.She would race twice more for the Luke McJannet yard, at Lingfield in November, in first time cheek pieces, she faded in to sixth after making the running, and at Chelmsford in December she faded over seven furlongs, to be beaten four and three quarter lengths.
Red Skye Delight was next seen at Chelmsford in June of this year, and now racing from the yard of Christine Dunnett. She once again found one two good, but gave good reason to think that there is a race in her.
