APACHE SONG steps up in trip and class at Cheltenham tomorrow. She is running in a 2 1/2 mile mares listed handicap hurdle. There is a big field of 18 runners and Jack Quinlan takes the ride. She won well in heavy ground last time out over 2 miles but has previously won on good ground so we are happy to see the ground drying out. It will help her to get the trip as she is stepping up to 2 1/2 miles for the first time. Her half-sister won over 3 miles over hurdles so we have reason to believe she will stay. She seems in very good form at home and we are hopeful of another good run tomorrow.
