IWA (2.02) joined us from France as a winning chaser so going over the bigger obstacles was always going to be the plan and he’ll make his fencing debut this afternoon. He was very keen first time up, which was to be expected after such a long layoff, so we rode him differently on his second start, Craig holding him up to teach him to settle better. We think he will have benefitted from that experience and we’re also learning more about him too. 

The trip, track and ground will be fine going on his chase form in France and the way he ran at Newcastle back in January was encouraging, while the small field is something he’s also used to from before. We are keeping the tongue tie on him here so if he settles well enough again and kicks on from the last time, he’ll have a chance. 

Cailin ready to go again

CAILIN DEARG (4.22) bounced right back to form at her beloved Sedgefield last time out and makes a rare trip elsewhere this afternoon. She’s never really done it the same at other tracks so has a bit to prove on a big galloping course this week. She looked really back to herself last month, though, and if she’s still going in an upward curve then the 6lbs she got for her win might not prove too much.
