THE SOFT GROUND AT HEXHAM IS GOOD NEWS.

We send two up to Hexham on Saturday, where the going at the time of writing is soft, good to soft in places, and there is the prospect of more rain to come.

Kayf Adventure makes a return to hurdles at 3.20.pm, in the 0-120 handicap hurdle, with Connor O'Farrell taking the ride. He unseated for the first time in his career at Carlisle, over fences, 35 days ago, but prior to that he had been a sound third at that track in March, which was his best run to date for us. Kayf Adventure has been given a good chance by the handicapper on this return to hurdles, as he can now race off a career low mark of 115. The two and a half miles is his trip, and he is a genuine soft ground performer.

Square Viviani will also appreciate feeling his hoofs sink in to the mud, as all five of his French wins, and both of his wins for us have come with soft or heavy in the description. Square Viviani runs in the 5.05.pm, 0-110 handicap chase over three miles with Alain Cawley in the saddle.He was on an upward curve last season when winning twice, but had his season brought to a premature close by the lock down. It was 13 months until he reappeared in February of this year, running a cracker to finish fifth at Uttoxeter, only weakening from the last when lack of race fitness took it's toll.

IT'S LADIES DERBY DAY AT RIPON.

If it's Gold Cup day at Royal Ascot, then it has to be the Ladies Derby for female amateur jockeys at Ripon. The race holds great memories for us, as back in 2016 our much missed grey Pertuis won the
