Our resident tipster, Scoop Racing, was back in the winner’s enclosure yesterday. Here’s hoping today’s meetings survive the overnight frost.
Wednesday December 12
Hexham 12.20 WIN
Three miles on heavy ground around Hexham is a stiff test for any horse, never mind these maiden hurdlers. But if any animal possesses the right attributes for such an examination it’s Lucinda Russell’s six-year-old recruit from the point-to-point field in Ireland. The son of Revoque has stamina to burn and displayed a gritty, tenacious attitude to get the better of a Donald McCain favourite to win a Carlisle bumper on his UK debut last month. He faces only four rivals on his hurdling bow today, none of which are any great shakes. You can ask me the question, Noel.....deal or No Deal?!
