Our man Dan Skelton discusses his Sunday runners

| 15.12.2017

I run Santo De Lune in the 13.30 at Southwell. He’d be the highest rated horse in that race and hopefully he can get his first one against his name.

He’s run nicely, always with gaps between his races. He’s not been the easiest to train; his history will show you that.

I just hope I can go and put that one next to his name that he we know he’s capable of.

We’ve got Shannon Bridge in the Novices’ Hurdle at 14.05. This is a qualifier for the EBF which is a race I have always had in mind for him.

Dropping him back to two-and-a-half from three miles shouldn’t be an inconvenience for him.

I’m not saying he will definitely win but I think he will run well under a penalty.

Cabaret Queen is one we are very happy with and she runs in the 15.05.

She was beaten last time out but I think she wants three miles and this race looks perfect for her.

Hopefully she can go very close.
