TRAILBLAZING mare Glen Ava bids for a Perth four-timer on Tuesday in the Follow Racing TV On Twitter Handicap Hurdle. Trained by Iain Jardine and ridden by Conor O’Farrell, the spring-heeled grey made all twice in June before completing her course and distance hat-trick 16-days ago.

 

Jardine said: “Conor gets a great tune out of her and she clearly loves Perth. It looks a competitive wee race but we’re hopeful of another big run as she’s in such good form.”

 

The opposition to Glen Ava includes Nicky Richards’ three-time course winner Caius Marcius ridden by dual champion jockey Brian Hughes.

 

Also in the line-up is Keepthefaithinme, representing Gordon Elliott, the most successful trainer of all time at Perth who has eight runners on the card - and Sean Bowen, the leading jockey of the current campaign.

 

Restandbethankful made a winning debut in a bumper at Perth two years ago and runs for just the second time over fences in the Racing TV Profits Returned To Racing Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase. Trained near Stratford by Olly Murphy, he clashes again with Byzantine Empire after he finished a seven-length runner-up to Fergal O’Brien’s charge at Southwell a month ago. 

 

Matthew Taylor, Perth Racecourse Racing Manager, said: “Despite a wet and windy weekend, the track is in good shape with the current going Good to Soft, Good in places. Monday will see some further blustery showers before a settled few days for racing. We have representation from Scotland, England and Ireland and are looking forward to the racing over the two days.”

 

Tickets for Tuesday and Wednesday are available to purchase on the gate.
