Speredek strikes again….

Speredek has won again at Exeter by fifteen lengths, he has now won his last four races and looks to be improving all the time. He was ridden aggressively by James Bowen, he made all the running to win easily in a competitive two mile handicap hurdle. Chasing is his game really but he’s not too shabby over hurdles either, he could run next at Ascot over hurdles or fences. Saturday we have Sapphire Noire and Mead Vale running at Uttoxeter, Sapphire is improving all the time and Mead Vale is having his first run. Next week on Wednesday we have Level Of Intensity and Take A Break entered at Hexham, on the same day we have entries at Chepstow which are Ballymagroarty Boy, Farmer Lad, Lady Mix, Point N Shoot and Camron De Chaillac.
