Winners Return For Day Two
On day two of Perth Racecourse’s summer double-header, the Scone track welcomes course winners aplenty in the £16,000 Heidsieck Monopole Party Goes On Handicap Chase over 2m 4f on Wednesday 31 July.
Of the six-strong field, only lightly-raced chaser Sebastian Beach, trained by Ben Pauling, has failed to strike at the Scone venue for his Gloucestershire connections.
Creadan Grae represents Gordon Elliott, winning trainer of this contest with Mountain King in 2017. The top-weight has gained both his chase wins at Perth including over course and distance earlier this month.
The runner-up on that occasion, Boy’s On Tour, has since franked the form by also winning at his local venue and Lucinda Russell’s charge is another contender with a live chance.
Amalfi Doug knows where the Perth winning post is as Keith Dalgleish’s Lanarkshire raider has won twice over hurdles at the track this summer.
In the other £16,000 feature, the Heineken UK Handicap Hurdle over two miles, Jimmy Moffatt-trained Golden Town is on a hat-trick following wins over course and distance and Sedgefield.
Stern opposition includes Chef De Troupe who ran in Listed company on his latest start for shrewd Worcestershire handler Dr Richard Newland.
Those attending the Afternoon Raceday can get up close and personal with golf’s Solheim Cup, which will be on site to celebrate the biggest event in women’s golf being staged at nearby Gleneagles this September. Perth Racecourse is also gearing up for a sell-out Carnival Raceday – the final Saturday fixture of the season taking place on 17 August.
