FOLLY BERGERE and WIND PLACE AND SHO both run at Huntingdon tomorrow and they will be ridden by Jack Quinlan. FOLLY BERGERE runs in a 2 and a half mile
mares novice hurdle and there are 16 runners. She showed promise in her only run
over hurdles as a juvenile, finishing third, but unfortunately sustained a
tendon injury so has been off the track since. She has done very well
physically during her break and now looks a proper National Hunt prospect. Her
flat form suggests she has a future over hurdles aswell as a stayer on the
flat. She has been schooling well and we just hope she can run a decent race
and come back in one piece.
WIND PLACE AND SHO runs in a 2 mile handicap hurdle and there are 13 runners. He seems in good form and we have been waiting for some decent ground for him. His last run on soft ground was a bit disappointing at the time but the form has worked out very well as the winner subsequently won the Imperial Cup. The majority of his hurdling form has been very solid so we hope he can re find that form on his return to better ground. The slight concern is that the track generally does not suit horses that have to be held up in their races but it is the ideal race and the ground is right so it seems worth having a go.
