The mud was flying at Chepstow on Wednesday and Get Wishing responded with an impressive win in the 2m conditional handicap hurdle. Well ridden by Harry Stock he took up the running half way up the home straight and galloped strongly to the line. He gives the impression that he will stay further. His next run will be back at Chepstow over 2m3f. There are shares available in this exciting young horse who will surely have a future over fences. He is shown on the horses for sale page.

The rain has continued and the ground looks as though it will be ideal for Dancing Shadow today in the Badger Beer handicap chase. The 31/4 m may be on the short side but we are looking for a good run prior to his main target which is the 4m Borders National at Kelso in December.

The lack of rain at Kelso has meant Admiral Secret has been redirected to Lingfield on Tuesday.

River Bray will miss Sandown tomorrow and take the easier option at Exeter on Wednesday along with Run to Milan, Sweet Adare, and Heluvagood.

Mahler’s First was due to make his chase debut on Tuesday at Huntingdon but is a doubtful runner due to the lack of rain.
