Glen Shiel

2.25 – Pertemps Community Chipchase Stakes

A good renewal of this dash and a few rising stars characteristic. Glen Shiel is just not considered one of them, however he has been one!

3.30 – JenningsBet Northumberland Plate

Trueshan is the star title on the cardboard as a correct Group 1 stayer in a handicap. That not often occurs, and the very best weight carried to victory in current Plate renewals is 9st 10lb by Daring Gait in 1995.

Trueshan – thwarted by quick situations on turf – has to hump 10st 8lb right here, and connections follow common rider Hollie Doyle who would not declare any allowances.

Doyle is aware of the horse properly, however it could be one of many biggest weight-carrying performances of all time if Trueshan is profitable – just like what Denman did within the outdated ‘Hennessy’ at Newbury.

I am unable to see it occurring. Nevertheless it’s nice connections are giving it a go!


3.30 – JenningsBet Northumberland Plate

Rajinsky has his third try at profitable the Plate, having completed seventh in 2020 and fourth final 12 months – later promoted to 3rd after a stewards’ enquiry.

Clearpoint regarded actually promising with a simple win on debut at Ayr and cannot be ignored beneath a penalty. Fahey is, after all, contemporary from Royal Ascot success too.
