BERKSHIRE DOWNS/ADAM NICOL had her debut hurdle race in a Class5 Maiden Hurdle over 2m4.5f on Soft Going.Jumping well she ran in mid-pack for the first circuit moving to dispute 2nd place early in the second until tiring to finish a creditable 4th. A very promising debut hurdle run.
CADORE/JONATHAN ENGLAND competed in a Class 4 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 4f on a drying track that was Good to Soft. Held to the rear of the small group of 6 runners, he was asked to quicken after the 7th, but soon weakened and finished in 6th place
SILVERTON /ADRIAN LANE competing for the first time since May ran in a Class 4 2m4f Chase over 16 fences, on Going that had become Heavy. Running rather in snatches she held position within the leading group until fading between the 4th/5th last. She was pulled up after the 3rd last
Racing for the first time in almost 2 years and in her debut Hurdle race JUST ANNIE ridden by GRANT COCKBURN competed in a Novice Hurdle race over 2m 6f on ground that had become Soft. Settled to the rear of the field, Annie started to tire toward the finish and was pulled up before the final hurdle
Badged was reluctant to race on his first race after a wind op. He made a few mistakes unseating Grant early in the race. It may be that he has memories of bad breathing experiences and will need a couple of races for him to forget that. Possibly back to hurdles next time.
