Two runners at Huntingdon tomorrow with Totterdown (pictured) and Western Storm. The former was a course and distance winner twelve days ago and carries a double penalty under Danny Hiskett. Hopefully the race won’t come too quickly for him and he appears bright and happy at home.
Western Storm has been unlucky to have not won over hurdles as yet. We step up in trip tomorrow on some slightly easier ground, which will hopefully help him. However this is a tougher contest than his previous two races but we are hopeful of a good run, with Tom Bellamy once again taking the ride.
Today’s horse profiles for your Five to Follow entries are:
LADY OF AUTHORITY
Lady Of Authority has done a fair bit of growing over the summer and taken some time to come to hand. She disappointed on her last couple of runs but hopefully a step up in trip will help her.
She will run on the all-weather over the winter and has the size and scope to jump hurdles at some stage.
Lazio is a half-brother to the very decent stayer, Thomas Hobson. He showed promise in Ireland in maidens on the flat and came to us having had a niggly problem. We have given him plenty of time to mature and he has the size and shape of a chaser. He has schooled well and certainly has the ability to do well in the jumping game.
Madame Ritz showed great early promise on the all-weather, winning and being placed on her first three runs. She appears to be best on an all-weather surface and looked to be returning to form on her last run. She appears well-handicapped on her best form and we look forward to her having another decent winter on the all-weather.
