Two Go North
Justazippy and Aeschylus are both declared to run in Doncaster tomorrow. Zip has to face 4 rivals in her mares handicap hurdle. A winner last time, she was raised 7lbs to a mark of 115, which looks fair, and she has beaten 3 of her rivals already this season which just leaves Dreambrook Lady. DL is 10lbs well in on official figures, but I can't really see how she was worth such a hike for her 7 length win last time, so we shall see tomorrow. Aeschylus takes his chance in the bumper, and this fine big horse faces 8 rivals. The form on offer is weak apart from Donald McCains at the top and he could run well on a bigger track and on ground that could well suit him far better than the ground he faced on debut.With the stable in form - let's hope they can add to their tally tomorrow. Silver Wren who ran so well at Folkestone yesterday seems fine this morning and will now be aimed at 3 mile handicap hurldes (a mares novice would be ideal)!
