After a couple of near misses at Leicester yesterday for Nicola Currie, the BetVictor brand ambassador gives us her thoughts on two rides at Haydock for the BetVictor-sponsored card.
I am looking forward to heading north today to ride at Haydock on the BetVictor-sponsored card. My first ride comes in the one mile two furlong handicap (13:25). Looktothelight for Jamie Osborne makes his handicap debut and goes up in trip. I think from what he has shown us at home, he will appreciate the step up. The ground is good to firm at the moment, but with rain forecast, I feel that any falls will be a help to him rather than a hindrance, as he showed us that he copes with Southwell’s surface in January.
My second ride on the card is Velocity, who has her first outing in the six furlong Fillies Novice Median Auction Stakes. She’s a half-sister to the well known Lady Prancealot who was sharp enough in her early career to win over a sprint trip and then went on to stay over longer trips. The start at six should suit well and we’ve been pleased with her work at home.
