Back from Christmas with 3 runners at Wolverhampton
The team have done a great job at Christmas looking after all the horses and riding the runners for this week.
Today we have 3 off to Wolverhampton and Universal Command starts us off. He was very impressive in winning at the course two starts ago, when he routed the field. It was a big time performance and he didn’t do it in the most efficient manner so there is hope on that run there is more to come from him. At Kempton they went no pace and it was on the inner track which meant he was always on the turn and not in a great rhythm. Today is a competitive race but he has a low draw and can hopefully get a good position.
Junior Rip will appreciate the step up in trip today, having found last time a bit sharp. He shaped with promise and is heading the right way and will be a nice horse for next season.
Il Capitano ran a nice race behind an easy winner at Lingfield last time. The second has been given a mark of 82 which seams harsh and we will have to step up again today to feature in the finish.
