We have two runners at Newton Abbot today with Midnight Sapphire running in the Happy 70th Birthday Pat Love From Del Mares’ Handicap Hurdle and her full brother Hoopers Legend in the Bettrends National Hunt Super Saver Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race. They are both very competitive races!

Nick Scholfield is deputising for the injured Andrew Thornton who normally rides Rod Harding’s horses in his quest to help him get to 1000 winners.
