Market Rasen, Thursday 16th November

Today we travel to Market Rasen with two runners, Jersey Gem who goes in the Mares Hurdle at 1.05pm and Picks Lad who runs in Novices’ Chase at 1.40pm.

Jersey Gem didn’t enjoy under foot conditions at Chepstow last time out, after very heavy rain on the day and she was well beaten. She will have to put in a much better show to be competitive in this, but I’m sure she’s capable of better. Hopefully better ground will see her in a better light.

Picks Lad is new to us this season, bought by my bloodstock agent Ed Bailey from Doncaster HIT sales. His schooling at home has been good but obviously first time out over fences the main thing is to get a good clear round. We like him and hopefully he’ll run well.
