A nice couple of winners this week sees Richards total for the year reach 163. The first of those came in the shape of COME ON LEICESTER who duly delivered at her local track. The daughter of Kodiac was away well in the Fillies Conditions event under Jim Crowley and delivered in impressive fashion under hands and heels. ‘She has been very consistent all year and so I was confident this drop back in class would revitalise her. She did that really easily and the plan will be to head to the Bosra Sham in a few weeks time at Newmarket. It was a fitting victory for King Power at their local track and with a filly named after the city.’
Another winner yesterday continued the good form of the yard when WATER DIVINER won nicely under Tom Marquand at Brighton. He was winning his second race in his career and proved tough in the closing stages. ‘I have always liked this horse’s attitude and he has been running well without getting his head in front. That was a good effort and he will hopefully gain some confidence going forward.’
No runners today but we head to Italy over the weekend with three runners. Keep an eye on my Unibet Racing Blog for all the information.
