Busy Friday!

Thursday, May 11, 2017
We have three runners at three meetings tomorrow head by ICE SLICE at  Chester. He runs in the 7 1/2 furlong handicap and regular partner Ryan Tate takes the ride. He ran well for a long way on his season debut at Nottingham but just got tired in the closing stages, Chester was always the plan for his next run. He has been in good form at home and his last bit of work was his best so far this year. After his great season last year he is obviously high enough in the handicap which does not make it easy for him. On the plus side he is a course and distance winner and is well drawn in stall 4 of the 14 runners. All these factors are a definite advantage at Chester. He is very adaptable ground wise these days but if it did rain it would help not hinder him. He is a very tough horse so you can't rule him out and hopefully he will be thereabouts again tomorrow.
FATHER McKEZIE heads to Lingfield to run in a 6 furlong handicap on the turf. Like ICE SLICE he is not well treated by the handicapper as he was such a consistent performer last year. He has run 2 good races for us in quite classy handicaps  over 5 and 6 furlongs and he looks as if 5/12 furlongs would be ideal. Lingfield is an easy track so that should suit him.
He is a horse we really like as he is very straightforward and a real trier. He has dropped a couple of pounds after his last run but it still won't be easy for him but you couldn't rule him out and this looks a slightly easier contest than his earlier races this season.
SEE THE CITY is the final runner of the day at Nottingham in the evening. He runs in a 10 furlong handicap and is drawn 10 of the 11 runners, Ryan Tate makes the journey from Chester to ride him. He made his debut for us on this track but you can forget that run as it was a muddling race which turned in to a sprint which did not suit him. He does have form on good to firm ground but he is a nice big horse and we would like to see some rain for him.  He is not drawn well  but we hope they will go a good gallop which will suit him better than on his previous run.
