Three to Ffos Las
Thorn makes his third start in the 7f Novice. He is from a family that improve dramatically with age and he took a big step forward last time when 4th at Lingfield. The ground was soft that day and he will be happier back on better ground.
Smokey Lane is having his second start for us today on some better ground. He is getting back his sharpness but he could still improve for the run. Hopefully he can show some of his old spark.
Pescedora ran better than it would appear in quite a competitive race for the grade. She was outpaced but stayed on in the final furlong. She should be sharper for that run and the ground should be perfect for her.
Withhold has gone in to quarantine this morning and is due to ship to Australia in the coming weeks in his quest to get a run and win the Melbourne Cup. He is in great form and is travelling out in perfect condition. It goes without saying, there are many hurdles to pass before November 6th, but we couldn’t be happier with him.
