Thursday August 11

A quieter week this week, but Invocation was only beaten in a photo-finish at Newton Abbot yesterday and we’ll be hopeful of an encouraging first run for us for Black Sam at Worcester today, while Rainbow Dreamer heads off to Salisbury for their finale, where he will encounter the fastest ground so far.

We are likely to be a bit busier on Saturday, but we also have our recent runaway Chester winner Who Dares Wins flying the flag for us at Nottingham tomorrow in the £35,000 Colwick Cup.

Alan said:”Who Dares Wins has really strengthened up these past six months and could not have been more impressive at Chester. The handicapper has put him up 9lb and he can run here off his old mark with a 6lb penalty, so, in effect, he is 3lb well in. It’s a very good prize, so we feel it’s worth rolling the dice again.”
