BetVictor ambassador Rachael Blackmore has four rides across the weekend at Navan and Wexford, we caught up with her to get her views on the four mounts.
My first ride comes in the three-mile veterans handicap chase on Kavanghs Corner, he ran very well last time out at Fairyhouse when third to Gevrey. Before that he was a good second at Limerick over Christmas. He has been going well at home so hopefully he can run another good race here and be in the mix come the finish.
My other ride on Saturday is in the two-mile four mares handicap chase on Imperial View again for Henry. She hasn’t progressed as I had hoped since going over fences in November, this is her second run in a handicap chase. She is working and schooling well at home, I know she is well capable of a good run the trip should suit and hopefully we can get an improved effort from here.
Onto Sunday where I go to Wexford, and I take the ride on Rioga Choice in the opening mares maiden hurdle. She was fourth on her first start for Henry when well beaten by Kilcruit, considering it was her time on the racecourse it was a good run, hopefully she will have improved plenty for that first start. It looks quite competitive here with plenty in here with good form, but we are hopefully of a big run, I think she is a lovely mare, and I am looking forward to seeing how we get on.
Clifton Warrior is my final ride of the weekend in the two-mile handicap hurdle, he was a good winner of a maiden hurdle at Thurles back in November and last time out at Down Royal ran well behind Rodaniche. He is a nice horse who seems to be progressing and doing everything right at home. Hopefully, we can get his head in front here on his handicap debut.
