Something For The Weekend

Haute Estime and Speak of The Devil have made the journey to Haydock this afternoon, with the pair contesting the opening two races on a card headlined by the Grade 1 Betfair Chase. 

Haute Estime steps up in class for the Listed Novice Hurdle that gets the action underway, and although she faces a stiff task taking on the boys, she was a good winner at Kelso on her hurdling debut and is a young mare we think quite highly of. If she could finish in the first four and gain some black type that would be very valuable for her prospects as a broodmare later on.

Speak of The Devil likewise steps up in grade for the 3m4f handicap chase on the back of a career best when second at Carlisle last time. He’ll love the ground and shapes as though this longer trip will suit, so we’re hopeful it will unlock the necessary improvement for him to be involved at the business end.
