Bird To Love runs in the 8:45 at Kempton on Tuesday evening. The race is over a mile and a half and she is drawn 11 of 14. The draw will make it a bit difficult but she has some pace so hopefully she can get a reasonable position. William Cox will ride her again as we thought he rode her very well at Ffos Las.
I forgot to mention last week that Born To Please was entered in an amateur race at Haydock on Thursday. It wasn’t originally a serious plan but there are only 11 entries so it might be a very small field and the ground doesn’t look like it will be too fast. It would also give Ciaran another opportunity. The declaration is tomorrow morning so we will decide for sure then.
Miracle Of Medinah is entered for Ascot on Friday. There are a lot of entries and it will almost certainly be a maximum field. Although it will be competitive, a full field will ensure a strong pace which might what Miracle needs. He ran his best races last year in big fields. Hopefully he will run better than he did at Newmarket.
