TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER

Dakota Power

6:15 Kempton

“He has been very pleasing at home, but we have been given a bad draw 12 of 12, so its not ideal. We are just hoping he can get a good position and see what happens. Obviously confidence is a lot lower after being given draw 12.”

Haul Away

Nicky Henderson

He has been running consistently well of late and loves these smaller fields. He is a really versatile horse and loves to mix it between hurdling and chasing.

Retrospect

William Muir & Chris Grassick

He ran quite well last time considering we ended up in a pocket and they went slowly. He is what he is but hopefully one day we can pick the right race where everything goes right. He’s a strong galloper but he hasn’t got a turn of foot. We should have been closer last time but we just couldn't get out.

Storm Melody

Ali Stronge

He has a better draw today and I’m hoping he can go close again.

First Street

Nicky Henderson

First Street won very impressively on his hurdling debut and bids to follow up here today. It is a competitive race but he goes there in good form.
