Getaway Totherock wins the G.C.Rickards Mares' Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier for The Challenger Mares' Hurdle Series Final) (Class 3) (0-135, 4yo+) over 2m5f on soft ground.
Distance increased by 84yds. The ground was changed to good to soft, soft in places following this race. A fair mares' handicap and a taking effort from the winner.
, a C&D winner in December, looked on a nice mark potentially for this handicap debut and she made a swift move to take over three out. Despite shifting left two out and then on the run-in she was always going to win and the way she stormed clear late suggests she's very much a mare on the up. She could have a big say in a valuable mares' handicap in the spring.
She was the 'Star Performer'
Star performer: (2.45) made a winning handicap debut in style and looks a mare to keep on side
Memphis Bleek also ran at Ludlow in the Mullocks Auctioneers Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) (4yo+) 2m5f on Good To Soft ground. This was only his second run over hurdles and over this longer distance. We are happy with the way he jumped and travelled in the race and look forward to some fun with him through the Spring/Summer.
