TWO RUNNERS AT MARKET RASEN ON SUNDAY


We take two to the lovely Lincolnshire venue of Market Rasen on Sunday, where Rockliffe returns from a near thirteen week break in the two and a half miles handicap hurdle at 2.50.pm under jockey Joe Colliver. It seems like Rockliffe has been with us forever, but it is less than three and a half years since he joined us as a four year old from the Mick Channon yard. In that time he has won three hurdle races, including an outstanding piece of form when defeating ex stablemate Danceintothelight at Catterick in December of 2018. Sunday's trip is his best, and his preference is for good ground, he also goes well fresh, so we would be hopeful of him hitting the frame.


Our other runner is High Noon in the 4.30.pm in the two miles, five furlongs novice handicap chase, where Emma Smith-Chaston continues her successful liaison with the nine year old. He arrived at the yard in the autumn of last year fairly unexposed, and has done us proud winning on his penultimate start and finishing second last time, where the trip probably stretched his stamina. Even though he remains ten pounds higher than his win, he is still potentially well handicapped, so should go very close on Sunday.


Good luck to all of the connections
