We have declared Methodtothemagic and Alright Chap (pictured) at Huntingdon tomorrow with Tom Bellamy riding both. The former ran a bit too free on her last run and we will try to settle her more on this occasion as it is a style that seemed to suit her on her chasing debut at Leicester. She jumps with great enthusiasm and hopefully she will run well in what looks a competitive race.
Alright Chap runs in the two mile maiden hurdle having made his debut in a bumper on the track at Christmas. He is pleasing us with his work and jumping at home and although ultimately he will need a longer trip, it is a good starting point for his hurdling career.
We have both Bluenose Belle and Fighting Poet entered at the end of the week and some more runners pencilled in for the next fortnight.
With the turf flat season nearly upon us, the Dubai World Cup night whetted the appetite with some excellent performances – none better than Equinox who was quite sensational in winning the Sheema Classic on Saturday evening. He looks a wonderful stamp of a thoroughbred and Japan may finally have a superstar to take on Europe and be successful in the Arc.
