Dan Skelton previews Monday’s runners

| 27.12.2021

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.

Wetherby 12.25 – Lakota Warrior

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.

Wetherby 1pm – Midnight River

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.

Midnight River

Wetherby 2.15 – Eclair D’Ainay

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.

Wetherby 3.20 – Grey Dawning

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.

Kempton 1.55 – Marth Brae

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.

Kempton 3.10 – Flegmatik

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.

Kempton 3.40 – John Locke

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.

Chepstow 1.40 – Rocky Man

This looks like a very competitive finale. I think he will be better on slower ground.

Chepstow 3.25 – Getaround

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.
