Three runners at Taunton tomorrow with Lucky Thirteen, Next Lot and Beautiful People.
Lucky Thirteen runs over 2 ½ miles in the conditional jockeys handicap hurdle. Although it is a hot event, he should appreciate the better ground and Danny Hiskett rides.
Hopefully the ground will have a bit of ease in it so that Next Lot can run in the 3 mile handicap hurdle. He doesn’t like soft ground and was running well at Ludlow before making a mistake. He has schooled over fences since and hopefully the step up in trip will suit and will have Ian Popham onboard.
Danny rides Beautiful People as she carries top weight in the 2 mile handicap hurdle at 4pm. She got stuck in the mud at Warwick last time and although the trip might be on the short side for her, we are keen to get her back on her favoured ground having shown promise in the summer.
A beautiful, crisp, sunny morning here in Adlestrop. An easy day of cantering for most having worked yesterday. It is also ‘weigh in’ day for the string.
Looking forward to more runners on New Years Eve at Warwick to bring in the New Year.
