Diary: January 27 2008

Cheltenham Trials day featured two admirable efforts over hurdles with both Franchoek and Inglis Drever winner their races with some aplomb.  Both look worthy favourites come March, particularly Inglis Drever who is so well suited to that Cheltenham hill.

I will concentrate on the Kelso meeting tomorrow, a course described as the friendliest in Britain.

Nicky Richards normally does well with his runners at the Borders venue and his Double Default is my idea of the winner in the 2.05.  Although he did well enough over hurdles last season it always looked as though chasing would be his game.  Unfortunately he did not get beyond the first fence on his chase debut when the stirrup leather snapped but he can make amends here, mainly at the expense of Shrewd Investor.

Alan Swinbank’s Scale Bank should come on for his run at Musselburgh earlier this month and is likely to be on the premises in the bumper at 4.15 but I will stick with Double Default as my nap for Sunday.
