Mus­sel­burgh is on Anemoi agenda

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Health -

TRAINER Harry Whittington feels the bet365 Scot­tish County Hur­dle at Mus­sel­burgh is an ideal tar­get for Anemoi.

He is lean­ing to­wards mak­ing the t wo-mile con­test on Fe­bru­ary 2 the next tar­get for the fiveyear-old, rather than tack­ling the Bet­fair Hur­dle at New­bury a week later.

Whittington said: “He is in great nick and has come out of his race at Chel­tenham re­ally well.

“He showed plenty of speed and just didn’t stay the two-and-a-half miles that day.

“He will be brought back to two miles now.

“He has got the Bet­fair Hur­dle en­try but that may not be a race on the agenda now.

“The way he races, he may be a bit too baby­ish for that and it might be too much for him.

“The Scot­tish County Hur­dle could be a good idea.

“He can run in a hand­i­cap like that to get more ex­pe­ri­ence.

“He will have a Supreme en­try at the Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val.

“How­ever, he will take in a race in early Fe­bru­ary and we are most prob­a­bly look­ing at the Scot­tish County Hur­dle.”
