SCHIEHALLION MUNRO COULD GIVE US A GREAT START TO THE NEW YEAR.
Looking back through Schiehallion Munro's career to date, he has very rarely, if ever disappointed. He has come a long way since his humble beginnings in a pair of bumpers, making steady progress when switched to hurdles.He came of age over fences, winning three times last season, and earning a mark of 140.
The only time he has finished out of the first four in his 13 race career to date was on this seasons debut in the Bobby Renton at Wetherby, where he would have been placed if not being badly hampered at the last.He returned to Wetherby in November and showed he is still on the upgrade when finishing second, the handicapper reacted by raising him 2lb to a career high of 141.
Schiehallion Munro will have just turned eight years old when he runs in the 3.05.pm on Friday, a £25,000 Class 2, 0-145 handicap chase,and everything looks in place for a big run.The two and a half miles, is his best trip, and the softer side of good ground will hold no fears, on a track which will suit his style of racing, which is up with the pace. His regular jockey Joe Colliver will once again be in the saddle.
Good luck to the connections, Tennant, Lynch, Sharpe, and Boston.
