Today’s teasers…

“Down in trip today. Softer ground and cheekpieces should bring out an improvement in performance.”

Warren Greatrex, Fly Du Charmil

“Taras Day was too keen at Ludlow last time but still shaped well to a point. We are dropping back in trip to help her settle. Hopefully that will help her run an improved race.”

Harry Whittington, Taras Day

“Drop down in trip obviously a concern, but it is something we wanted to try and we will see what happens. He is in good form, so hopeful of a nice run, but just a bit nervous about the distance.”

Harry Dunlop, Early Morning

“Won very well last time out. Ground, trip should be suitable, up in grade today but should run very well.”

Warren Greatrex, Boite

“He likes soft ground and stays three miles so if he is going to be an Albert Bartlett contender, he’d need to be pretty good here which I hope he will be.”

Nicky Henderson, Chef Des Obeaux
