San Telm to Sandown
San Telm is declared in Sandown tomorrow (3.40). He last ran 3 weeks ago in what was probably untraceable ground in Haydock, after which we felt he would need a good rest. He was not ridden for the best part of a week after that, and has been bouncing since! The trip of 2m 6f is slightly shorter than he has been contesting lately, but the stiff track should suit, and we think he will run a nice race. Josh Moore rides, and 9 run - let's hope Josh can repeat last Saturdays triumph. Dawn Commander has come out of his race in great form, and while he is in such good order he will head to Aintree for the £50,000 handicap hurdle (last race on the first day). All the rest are in fine form, looking at races in Fontwell and Exeter for Smart Exit, considering Towcester, Warwick and Ludlow for Maypole Lass, and we have the option of running Colebrooke on Sunday in Market Rasen if we think it is the right race on the right ground.
