Lambourn’s recent successes
Verdana Blue (5/2)
3.00 Wincanton | November 10
“I took a gamble in not running her at Ascot last week where should would have had to carry top weight and I was hoping the ground would stay dry at Wincanton but as it is, there is plenty forecast which may go against her and I wouldn’t like to run her on very soft ground. It’s a shame she has to take We Have A Dream on but she was extremely impressive at Kempton last time and has been in great form at home. I just fear the ground has gone against her.”
Fixed Rate (5/1)
1.20 Kelso | November 10
“He’s won his only chase and has a lot of weight. He seems well at home and should be thereabouts.”
Saint Calvados (5/2)
12.30 Naas (IRE) | November 10
“Saint Calvados is a stronger horse after his summer break and is in great form at home. He didn’t show his best form in the Arkle, hopefully he will give Footpad more to think about today.”
