Dan Skelton previews his Sunday runners at Cheltenham and Fontwell
We are set to run Proschema (3.00) in the Greatwood. I’ve been looking forward to this race for him for some time now. It goes without saying how competitive this race is but I am very happy with the horse.
Third Time Lucki (3.35) runs in the Supreme Trial. He was fourth in last year’s Champion Bumper, won two novice hurdles so got a bit of experience before we turned up here.
I am really looking forward to running him. It will give us a bit of a steer as to what we are doing for the rest of the season.
We run a couple at Fontwell. Gars Bar Dine (2.05) didn’t run in the week because it was terribly sloppy ground at Lingfield.
Shentri (2.40) runs in the Juvenile Hurdle. He is a new horse to us from France and the highest on ratings in here.
He has won over fences and hurdles, on real soft ground and over two mile two so has a lot of ticks in his box.
