Donald McCain Blog – Sunday Runners

It’s been a quiet week runner wise but we have had two winners in the last two days which is great. I was in Cheltenham for the sales today where I purchased a nice horse from John Nallen who finished runner-up on both his starts in Irish point to points and we should have some fun with him. Looking forward to the weekend, thankfully we are racing on Sunday on the all-weather at Wolverhampton which will be a change of pace for many of my runners from the usual soft going around the likes of Bangor.

In total, I have five runners and you can read my thoughts on them all below:

Li’l Sebastian
Track: Wolverhampton – 2:00
Jockey: Lorcan Murtagh

He was second in an all-weather bumper at Newcastle and I don’t see why Wolverhampton should suit him any less, in fact, it might suit him better. It does look like a warmer race but he should run ok.

Carry On
Track: Wolverhampton – 2:30
Jockey: Harrison Beswick

I think to be fair to him, he was trained for the flat and wouldn’t go into the stalls, so he could run well.

Last Golden Ticket
Track: Wolverhampton – 2:30
Jockey: Brian Hughes

He didn’t cope with the ground at Sedgefield and I think on this surface he should show a lot better form so again I’d be hoping for a good run.

Prince Khurram
Track: Wolverhampton – 4:00
Jockey: Abbie McCain

I’ve never been able to run him on the flat because he had such a high rating when he came to us, so we have decided to give him a run-around and he’ll come on from the run.

Nefyn Bay
Track: Wolverhampton – 4:30
Jockey: Lorcan Murtagh

He’s an old horse that just needs to get some racing into him. I haven’t been able to run him anywhere because of the ground. Hopefully, when the ground does come right, this run will stand to him.

Best Chance: Li’l Sebastian
