Two runners split between Haydock and Sandown
Today we send out two runners with Valsad travelling to Haydock and Sinjaari travelling to Sandown.
Valsad is the first of our two runners and runs in the ‘bet365 Handicap’ for owner Mr S Stuckey. He has had 5 career starts so far which has included winning over a mile and 3 furlongs and placing on 2 other occasions over a mile and a mile and 4 furlongs. On his most recent start he put in a creditable run to finish 4th over a mile and 4 furlongs at Goodwood, today he steps up in trip to a mile and 6 furlongs which should hopefully suit him well. The race today has a field of 14 runners and Valsad has been drawn 14. Harry Davies takes the ride as well as claiming 5lbs off his back.
Sinjaari is our second runner of the day and runs in the ‘Coral Challenge (Handicap)’ for owner Mohammed Jaber. He has had 5 runs since being with us here at Beckhampton and although he hasnt won yet he has placed 2nd on 2 of his starts with less than a neck between the winner and himself and placed third with a length between the winner and himself. He put in a very creditable run on his most recent start when finishing 5th in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot with only 3 lengths between him and the winner. Today’s race has a field of 11 runners and he has been drawn 7 with Kieran Shoemark taking the ride. Hopefully today will be his day.
