Dan Skelton previews Monday’s runners
Ladbrokes ambassador Dan Skelton has nine horses running over three courses on Monday and gives us the lowdown on their prospects at Wetherby, Kempton and Chepstow.
He won around here on his last start and I don’t think the softer ground will be an issue at all.
There is a nice horse of Alan King’s in there to beat, though; Harbour Lake. I do think we have a nice horse and that he will run well.
He went and fell first time over fences. He did go and jump a clear round over hurdles next time.
We have done loads of schooling with him at home. He is a chaser and I just hope he goes and puts his best foot forward here because he would have a hell of a chance if he did.
I am looking forward to getting him back out there.
He was fourth here back in the season over a longer trip but he didn’t quite stay. This trip today on softer ground looks ideal. We won’t have any excuses.
The bumper horse, Grey Dawning, is a nice horse.
However, he is a jumper for the future. He will go well here, he’s from Flemensfirth so he is going to be a stayer.
He should stay this bumper distance on soft ground. Without saying I think he will win, he should go well.
The more rain the better for her. She won for us first time. The ground was a little bit sharp for her at Ascot next time.
I think he is best going right-handed and I think he wants three miles or somewhere close to it.
This race looks like it fits the criteria. It is a highly competitive race, though.
Tristan Durrell won on him a month ago and rides him again here.
A reproduction of that form would see him go close. This is a much deeper race but he did win his maiden very well.
This looks like a very competitive finale. I think he will be better on slower ground.
It is a track he ran well at on his first start and I think the slower ground will suit him and he should have a chance.
