Lee has high hopes for well-rested Demachine


Kerry Lee is delighted with Demachine’s preparatio­n as he takes on the best the top English and Irish trainers can muster in Saturday’s Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury. Demachine may not have run since finishing second to Remastered in the Reynoldsto­wn Novices’ Chase at Ascot in February but Lee points out he won on his chasing debut at Uttoxeter in October 2020 on his first start for 214 days. “Everything he’s doing has pleased us. His last piece of work was very good and I’m hopeful the ground will really suit him,” she said. “He’s untried at three-miles-two [furlongs]. That has to be a question mark but we take it he’ll stay.”
