Hereford 1:25 – Mares Novices’ Hurdle 2m53y
Ruby Yeats looked beaten last time out and despite running very green and losing a shoe she finished in some style under Gavin Sheehan.
Has a penalty to shoulder here but trainer Whittington has replaced Sheehan (who is out injured anyway) with James Nixon, who will claim 7lbs.
In form trainer Harry Whittington said:
She ran very green on stable debut at Southwell before coming home in impressive style to win. She has sharpened up for the run and come out of the race fresh and well. She should be very competitive under a penalty.
Ruby Yeats 7/1 ew, 1 Point
Hereford 3:55 – Class 4 Handicap Hurdle, 2m53y
This bumper winner, Orchard Park was only just denied in the shadow on the post at Chepstow last time out. He ran a lovely race and just looked a bit green as he ran around inside the final furlong.
Charlemar who won that day has gone on to win a class 3 race by 4.5 lengths and the horse in 3rd Criq Rock has posted two solid 2nd’s in class 3 company.
Orchard Park 4/1 (Betway) ew, 1 Point
