News in Brief
‘It needs to change now’ – more pressure for fixture reduction from top trainers
Leading trainers have escalated demands for urgent action to save British racing from decline, with William Haggas calling for 300 fixtures – more than a fifth of the programme – to be cut. Haggas, who trains the world’s highest-rated racehorse Baaeed, said field sizes were falling because there were too many fixtures for the pool of horses and pressure should be put on racecourses to act.
Johnny Levins: ban on Irish runners in low-level handicaps is ‘just wrong’
Irish trainer Johnny Levins has hit out at the BHA for doubling-down on a rule preventing overseas-trained horses from competing in low-level handicaps in Britain and argued the protectionist attitude summed up why British-trained runners were getting “taken to the cleaners” at the Cheltenham Festival.
Ascot happy despite drop in crowds
An elite standard of jockey and record prize-money helped Saturday’s Shergar Cup score high on quality, but the crowd at Ascot was 30 per cent down on the attendance three years ago before the pandemic struck. A total of 16,412 people attended on Saturday compared to 11,100 in 2021, shortly after pandemic restrictions were lifted, and 23,505 in 2019.
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Adaay In AsiaHarry Dunlop
She put up a super performance when winning at Goodwood and although this is much tougher, we still expect her to run well. She should enjoy the straight track.
MitrosonfireWilliam Muir & Chris Grassick
Mitrosonfire is trying 7 furlongs for the first time and I think it will suit him, he in good shape so, hopefully, we will get a good run.
Aldeenaary is a really nice four-year-old having his first start today, going nicely at home but what ever happens today will definitely come on for the run.
Willingly will love any rain down there, she is tough and is in great form and must have a chance.
