The going had dried up nicely since the last meeting here, and was officially good to soft.

Berkshire Downs ran in the two mile novice hurdle, ridden by Adam Nicol. It was the first time she has encountered going better that Heavy and she just found the pace over two miles a bit quick and as a result her jumping wasn’t quite so slick. However she still finished in a nice third place, and plenty to look forward to for her, especially when she goes over fences.

Cruachan also ridden by Adam ran in the two mile six handicap hurdle but he struggled on the sticky ground and just wasn’t able to come with his late run, he did manage to finish in a nice fourth place, better going will suit him.
