TWO TO KELSO ON TUESDAY.
After finishing second at Catterick back in February Grange Ranger looked nailed on to go one better, but he unfortunately had his season curtailed by lock down.When he finally reappeared at Wetherby in October he once again ran a race full of promise, to finish runner up again. Unfortunately he under performed on his latest start back at the West Yorkshire track just over three weeks ago, under similar conditions. Grange Ranger will run in the 11.40.am, a 0-125 Class 3 event, with excellent prize money of £15,000, although he steps up in grade, if anything the race looks weaker than the recent Wetherby events, Joe Colliver rides him for the first time.
Late Date made a very encouraging reappearance at Perth back in September when finishing forth, but he has pulled up in two subsequent starts. He may not have been suited by the sharp nature of Southwell last time, but here at Kelso he has been placed on three of his previous six visits. He is now 6lb below his last winning mark of 102, achieved at Sedgefield back in November 2019. Aiden Macdonald who will be having his third ride over fences can claim his full 10lb allowance, in the 3.07.pm race.
Good luck to the connections, Oakwood Rainbow, and County Set Six & Partner.
