TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER
Girl From Ipanema
“Girl From Ipanema is another lovey filly making her debut on the track. It looks an open race with the short-priced favourite but I think she could well be competitive here. Ultimately she will need a little bit further I think but this is a good starting point.”Ed Walker
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Jouska is in good form and should run another decent race, but the opposition is strong.
Bucko’s BoyJamie Snowden
Bucko’s Boy was placed 2nd and 4th in a couple of bumpers early last season, but picked up a niggle on the latter start. He is out of a bumper winner, and by Midnight Legend who produce winners. He is going well at home, and would certainly have a decent chance here, albeit in a competitive race for the track.
Sambezi is a new horse for the yard and owners. He was running well in his point to point before falling. He has been working well at home and showing promise. We will learn a lot more about him from this race today.
