Bird To Love will run in the 7:10 at Kempton on Saturday. The race is over a mile and a half; there is still some debate over her best trip so hopefully we can learn a bit more. It’s quite a good standard; better than the race she won and she is drawn 13 of 14 so she is up against it. The important thing will be to see her trying and finishing the race well to give us confidence going forward.
Born To Please seems fine. Whether or not we want to send her to Chepstow on Monday I’m not sure. It’s not just her health in question, the track isn’t the easiest to navigate and the two mile start sends them straight downhill into a sharp left hand bend. She’s still relatively new to the jumping and she could easily get unbalanced. We will see how many declare; if there aren’t too many runners we might consider it.
