First up for me is Tacora (12:20) in the Novice Auction stakes over 6 furlongs for Jamie Osborne. He’s a smart 2yr old Guitafan colt that heads for his racecourse debut. He’s shown some speed at home, but with rain forecast there is a question mark on how he will cope with conditions. Nevertheless, we will learn a lot from his first start today.
My second ride is on Just Glamorous (15:25) for Christopher Mason. He’s a very likeable horse. I had the pleasure of winning on him back in June on the all-weather at Lingfield. He found the ground too quick last time out, so hopefully with more give underfoot he can show his real form. If puts it all together, he could run a big race.
