BetVictor ambassador Rachael Blackmore has a busy day in store as she heads to Navan for four rides on a good card. We caught up with her to get her views on each runner.
Navan - 12:30
My first ride at Navan comes on Glen Wyllin in the two-mile four maiden hurdle. He was a good second last time out at Fairyhouse on New Years Day to Carrig Sam. That was just his first start for Henry, and he had some fair bumper form looking back at the third to Moscow Flyer winner Dysart Dynamo. Hopefully, he can step forward again today and go one better than last time out.
Navan - 13:40
Next up is Holymacapony in the Grade B handicap hurdle, dropping back in trip here should suit him, he ran well to a point at Leopardstown over Christmas and maybe just didn’t see it out, fingers crossed we get an improved run in this competitive race over shorter.
Navan - 14:15
My third ride on the card is Miss Tempo her last run came on very heavy ground at Limerick over Christmas, the ground today being significantly better will be in her favour. A winner at Tramore in the summer, she was also just behind yesterday’s Lingfield winner Love Envoi in her bumper days and seems in great form at home.
Ain’t That A Shame
Navan - 14:50
My final ride on Saturday comes on Ain’t That A Shame in the Beginners Chase, he ran nicely at Leopardstown jumping well but was no match to Galopin Des Champs. This again looks a competitive race; Indiana Jones held every chance when falling in the race won by Capodanno last time out and The Bosses Oscar also brings a high level of form to the table, hopefully we can put in a good round of jumping and not be too far away at the finish.
