After a busy day there Friday, BetVictor ambassador Rachael Blackmore returns to Gowran Park for four Saturday rides. Here are her thoughts, exclusively for BetVictor.
Gowran Park (15:10)
My first ride of the day is Great Bear. He was a very good second to Burning Victory in Fairyhouse and has been running well on the flat. You’d have to hope he’ll be very competitive here in this – he’s been second twice over hurdles. It’s another lovely ride to pick up and hopefully he won’t be too far away.
Gowran Park (16:20)
The second ride is Benkei for Harry Rogers. He had a long lay off and has had a few runs on the flat. Hopefully that will have sharpened him up and I’m looking forward to getting him back over hurdles. Hopefully he’ll run a nice race.
Put The Kettle On
Gowran Park (16:55)
Then we have Put The Kettle On. She went from strength to strength last year, culminating in winning the Arkle at Cheltenham. I didn’t ride her at Cheltenham, but I’ve won a few on her as well. She’s well at home and this looks a lovely race to start her off. Very much looking forward to riding her and hopefully she can get her season off to a good start.
Gowran Park (17:30)
My last ride is on Megalomaniac for Henry again. His last few performances have been a bit underwhelming. That said, he is working well at home and he’s well capable of being very competitive in this. Hopefully, he can put his best foot forward and he won’t be too far away.
