News in Brief

Newbury fires quick ground warning for next Saturday’s Betfair Hurdle card

Winter watering restrictions could result in Newbury’s high-profile Betfair Hurdle meeting next week being staged on ground featuring the word firm, course officials warned on Friday when they sought to alert trainers about the unprecedented conditions.

Ronan McNally hit with massive 12-year disqualification from Irish racing

Trainer Ronan McNally has been hit with a mammoth 12-year disqualification from Irish racing, charged €50,000 in costs and ordered to return over €13,000 in prize-money as the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board’s referrals committee published swingeing sanctions after finding him guilty of multiple integrity breaches in December.

Tom Dascombe left reeling after stable star dies in Dubai

Tom Dascombe has suffered the blow of losing the most promising horse in his Lambourn yard after Felix Natalis was fatally injured in a trackwork accident in Dubai on Tuesday.


3:25 Ffos Las, 31st January


Warren Greatrex

Ran very well on chasing debut and has been very well since. Track and trip will suit and if the ground isn’t too much hard work everything should be in his favour to go close.

3:10 Newcastle, 31st January

Passing Well

Jamie Snowden

He was 2nd last time out at the Punchestown Festival in a seriously competitive 21 runner bumper, where he was squeezed on the home turn and lost his position, but then rallied to stay on to be 2nd and closing on the winner at the line. He jumps really well, and has the size and scope to make up into a really smart prospect. Having won on his stable debut on his seasonal return, we stepped him up into Grade 1 company, and he ran well to be 4th in the Challow. Back in class here, I hope he can defy a penalty too.

2:35 Newcastle, 31st January

French Paradoxe

Oliver Signy

French Paradoxe fell at the last at Ffos Las when in control of the race and went up 7lb for that mistake. He has schooled very well at home since and, if he has a clean round of jumping, should be thereabouts at the end of the race.

2:00 Newcastle, 31st January

Colonel Harry

Jamie Snowden

He was 2nd on his racecourse debut over 2m4 on good ground, but appreciated dropping in trip on softer ground when bolting up at Sandown in November. Back there earlier this month, he ran a belter to be 4th in the Grade 1 Tolworth. Back now in calmer waters, I'd hope he can defy a penalty before stepping back up in grade.
