It was great to land another winner yesterday and it feels like we are on a good run heading into the festival. Saturdays racing looks rather limited with the loss of Sandowns big card but we still have action at Hereford, Ayr, Wolverhampton, Chelmsford, Gowran and Meydan for you on the site.
Gowran Park (16.35)
Gordon Elliott will be expecting a big week at Cheltenham and can get at least one winner today with Flawless Escape in the beginners chase at Gowran. The highest score rated in the field over fences he looks the type that can make up into a nice chaser. A recent run over hurdles should have him spot on to score today under Keith Donoghue who has the task of riding national hunt legend Tiger Roll next week in the cross country.
This looks an interesting race to close the card at Wolverhampton and there is one horse at this level I have been keeping an eye on. Michele Strogoff’s mark has plummeted to 76 after a few moderate runs, today he tackles a course and distance he has won twice over and looks set to give the favourite Mickey plenty to think about.
