Home track con­di­tions to suit

The Press - - Sport-Racing -

Track con­di­tions will play in Dressed­tokill’s favour on her home turf at Ric­car­ton on Fri­day.

The ca­pa­ble mare is un­beaten in two ap­pear­ances in heavy go­ing and she is a strong prospect to go close to fur­ther­ing that record when she runs in the Speights Mid Ale Open Hand­i­cap (1200m).

The win­ner of four of her 14 starts, Dressed­tokill re­turned to form last time with a solid third be­hind the tal­ented Wil­liam Wal­lace in a Rat­ing 85 event.

‘‘Wil­liam Wal­lace is no mug and I thought he would be first past the post and so it proved, but I was thrilled with our mare,’’ trainer Pam Rob­son said.

Dressed­tokill had been un­placed in her pre­vi­ous two ap­pear­ances that opened her cur­rent cam­paign.

‘‘They were on firmer tracks and we had to try her and clearly she didn’t cope, we won’t be do­ing that again,’’ Rob­son said.

A five-year-old by Bat­tle Paint, Dressed­tokill will be rid­den by Lee Call­away who has win­ning experience aboard the mare.
