Just the one runner at Perth on Thursday, when Rockcliffe goes to post at 4.50.pm, in a 0-110 two and a half miles conditional jockeys handicap hurdle, with our stable conditional jockey Emma Smith-Chaston who has ridden him on three previous occasions taking the ride. Rockcliffe has to run from 8lb out of the weights, but Emma will offset most of that with her 6lb claim.
Rockcliffe who is now an eight year old has run on 63 occasions under both codes, winning three times over hurdles, and once on the flat, but recently he has been struggling to find the best of his old form, both on the flat, and over jumps. This trip of two and a half miles is probably his best, and he will appreciate the predicted good going.
