We have two runners on Monday at Carlisle, where the going at the time of writing is good to soft, soft in places on the hurdles course.

Lincoln Burrow who showed very little in five Irish point to points before joining us made his hurdles debut at Carlisle two weeks ago when finishing eighth of the 11 runners beaten just 16 lengths. It can be foolish sometimes to take form such as that at face value, but on paper it looks a very decent introduction. Lincoln Burrow is a half brother to the very classy Born By The Sea, out of a mare who was a bumper winner in Ireland. The race is a maiden hurdle over two miles and one furlong, at, with Henry Brooke retaining the ride.

We also run Knocknamona who will be needing the heavens to open to increase his chances. He has been waiting for a soft surface since winning easily at Newcastle 44 days ago, for which he has been raised 8lb. That was a particularly poor event, and this race represents a big jump up in class. At 12 years old he looked as good as ever last time, and in his younger days his current mark would be well within his compass. He goes to post for the, a 0-115 handicap chase over two and a half miles, with Conor O'Farrell retaining the ride.
