Leicester, Pontefract and Windsor with chances

 In Beckhampton News

Today we have three runners at three different racecourses.

Our first runner of the day is Thorn at Leicester in the Jo Caddick 21 Years Going Is Good Handicap’. The race holds nine entries with each runner having reasonable form behind them and most having broken their maiden title. Thorn has had just three runs as a two year old in which he progressed on each, bringing him to the winners enclosure on his last run. Since his last run he has been gelded, and he looks very well having been slow to get his coat. Today is his first appearance as a three year old and we hope he can continue on his progressing form. Jason Watson takes the ride.

Our second runner today is True Destiny at Pontefract in the ‘Tony Bethell Memorial Handicap (Round 3 Of The Pontefract Stayers Championship 2019)’. He has been very consistent this season with producing two wins a second and a third. Todays race holds thirteen runners with each of them bringing at least one win with them into the race. The ground is being called Good at the moment which will be a little softer than what he has previously run on but hopefully that shouldn’t affect him, especially with more rain due. Pontefract is about as extreme as it comes in terms of the track and he will need to stay well, which we think he will. Adam McNamara takes the ride.

Our last runner of the day is Qarasu at Windsor in the ‘Cappagh Girls Gallop Novice Stakes’. He has had just the two runs in his career so far in which he showed a lot of potential. Having finished third in a very competitive Novice Stakes last time out to Pondus who has won another competitive Novice Stakes around Sandown, and looks to be a Stakes horse in the making. As well as the winner coming out and showing good form so has the majority of the other runners from his run at Nottingham. Jason Watson takes the ride.
