Bright Era will like the ground, but really has not progressed.

Russiam Rumour would not have wanted to see ground drying out but can still get involved.

Value Added

Jamie Snowden

Out of an unraced half-sister to the 2m Group 3 winner Shemima and Listed winners Shemala and Shemaya, out of a French Oaks winner, there is stamina in her pedigree. She was rated as high as 85 on the flat over a mile, but with the stamina in her pedigree, she looks as though she'll stay 2m over hurdles. She jumped well on hurdling debut but a mistake at the last stopped her from being placed. She was a bit keen when 3rd last time out and this drop in trip looks the right move. She's capable of winning a race of this type providing the ground isn't too soft here.


O’Grady’s Hill

Harry Derham

She’s run two excellent races finishing runner up the last twice, firstly in a bumper at Uttoxeter and then a her first run over hurdles for us at Market Rasen. I think she does have a preference for better ground but she’s stays well having had a point to point back ground. She ran a really nice race last time out, jumping very efficiently and if she does the same again today she has another really good chance in a race that she looks capable of being competitive in.


Scalloway Castle

Jamie Snowden

Out of a half-sister to Always Right who was 3rd in the Scottish National. This Ocovango gelding is a half brother to a couple of useful sorts. However, he had shown nothing in three starts for a different trainer. Having been sent him through the winter, we gave him a wind op, we've been concentrating on relaxing this head strong gelding. He settled well on his two hurdling starts for us over 2m. He was a bit novicey on his chasing debut, but showed a bit of promise there – he will appreciate a bit of cut in the ground, and as he is unexposed he could out run his big odds here.


Going: Good to soft  First race: 5.07


Shamrock Bay

Daniel & Claire Kübler

Shamrock Bay makes his debut over seven furlongs, he was purchased a yearling from Goffs Yearling sale. He is by Cable Bay out of Shamandar who was a useful two-year-old sprinter.
