SHIGHNESS TO MAKE RACECOURSE DEBUT.

Newcastle racecourse stage another jumpers bumpers cards on Wednesday, giving national hunt horses who may have missed an engagement because of the adverse weather a chance to have a run.

We have one runner in the shape of Shighness, who will be seeing a racecourse for the first time, as will her 12 rivals. The race is over the standard two miles, and as she is four years old, and a filly, she receives all the weight allowances.

Shighness has a lot of speed in her pedigree, being by the Group 2 winning miler Passing Glance, and her grand dam was a dual seven furlong winner for Sir Michael Stoute. Her dam only raced on three occasions, but showed ability each time, and on her final start was a staying on second in a bumper at Market Rasen. The race is at 11.45.am, and she will be partnered by Billy Garritty on his return to action.

Good luck to the connections, Keep The Faith Partnership.
