Haydock Succumbs to Snow
18/01/13

Saturday's meeting at Haydock was abandoned due to snow.

Clerk of the course Kirkland Tellwright was due to inspect the Haydock track at 8.30am, but with an inch of snow already on the ground and more forecast, he made an early call.

He said: "We have abandoned. We have to be realistic, we are white over now and could not race. This isn't as much as we are expecting, it's just an opening shot and there's no point in deluding ourselves."

 

Bold Sir Brian Heads 11 for Peter Marsh
17/01/13

Trainer Lucinda Russell's Bold Sir Brian is among 11 declarations for the Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock on Saturday January 19, if the meeting survives an 8.30am inspection on Friday.

Bold Sir Brian

The track passed an initial check on Thursday but the possibility of snow is now the major issue.

Bold Sir Brian will head the weights if the race goes ahead after Nicky Henderson decided not to declare Roberto Goldback.

The seven-year-old has won five of his eight starts over fences, including a very impressive victory last time out at Sandown.

Russell has given him an entry in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup and will hold talks with his owners about an entry in the Ryanair Chase at the Festival.

The Argento Chase at Cheltenham on Trials Day had been mentioned as a possible option, but Russell has now nominated the Haydock event won in the past by he likes of Little Owl, Bregawn, Jodami and Our Vic.

She said: "Bold Sir Brian has an entry in the Gold Cup and I'm also going to talk to his owner about whether we should enter him in the two-mile-five race (Ryanair) as well. He's coming along nicely and the Peter Marsh is likely to be his next race."

The trainer's staying chaser Silver By Nature, who has not been seen since the 2011 John Smith's Grand National, is nearing a return to action. The grey won Haydock's Grand National Trial in 2010 and 2011 and has that race as an aim once more in February.

He is first likely to contest either the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster or the Peter Marsh, while a trip to Ireland could be on the agenda later in the season.

The handler went on: "Silver By Nature worked on Sunday and went really well. I think he'll start off in either the Peter Marsh or the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster. The Grand National Trial at Haydock will be his main aim again.

"We had considered one of the big handicaps in Ireland because he'd get his ground, but he needs a run to get back to his best. We might go over to Ireland in the spring with him."

Russell has yet to come up with a plan for her promising novice Tap Night, owned by JP McManus, after his win last week. "No decision has been taken as to where he'll run yet, but I was delighted with how he did it. We'll just look for another novice somewhere," she said.

Another who runs well on Merseyside is Colin Tizzard's Cannington Brook and he is back again after winning his second Tommy Whittle at the track last month. Tizzard will also run Hey Big Spender who has been disappointing in two runs this season.

Donald McCain's Our Mick is due to have his first run since finishing third in the JLT Specialty Chase at Cheltenham in March while David Pipe has declared Consigliere and Tim Vaughan will run Tartak.

Venetia Williams will be represented by Summery Justice but not Katenko while Sue Smith's Gansey, Brian Ellison's Neptune Equester and Malcolm Jefferson's Mac Aeda will aim to keep the prize up north.
