The going at the time of writing for Kelso on Wednesday is good, good to firm in places, but rain is forecast.

Enfin Phil is first up at, in the 0-110 extended two miles and six furlong handicap hurdle. This will be the first time Enfin Phil has been eligible for this weight band, as the handicapper drops him to a mark of 110, his highest mark of 122 was achieved after his lastest win at Catterick in January 2020. He hasn't been anywhere near that form in five attempts this season, so hopes are pinned on this step up in trip. All of his best form has come when the word soft has appeared in the going description, Alain Cawley who won on him at Catterick, will take the ride.

Mister Freddie is our other runner in the bumper at where once again he will be ridden, as he was on his debut, by Sean Quinlan. We had great success with our bumper horses last season, and when Mister Freddie ran at Wetherby in March, he was sent off at only 15/2. He disputed the lead until around four furlongs from home, until weakening quickly from two furlongs out, coming home in sixth, beaten by 29 lengths. The race on Wednesday looks up to scratch for a northern bumper, but we should see a better showing this time.

Good luck to the connections, Randall Orchard & Partners, and Mrs Jane Newett.
