Bethell wants True Plea­sure from ride

The Herald - Sport - - SHINTY -

JAMES Bethell is hop­ing for more suc­cess from his con­sis­tent mare True Plea­sure at Mus­sel­burgh on Mon­day night.

The Mid­dle­ham raider, who has al­ready scooped two wins this term, faces seven ri­vals – in­clud­ing six course win­ners – in the £8,000 Ed­in­burgh Gin Hand­i­cap.

“She’s very well and in good or­der,” Bethell said. “I’d say she has a de­cent chance. She was sec­ond at Cat­t­er­ick to an im­prov­ing horse in Break­able who has since won again at Ch­ester.

“She’s pretty adapt­able for go­ing ei­ther right-handed or left handed which is good but she hasn’t got a good draw in stall eight.”

Among the Mus­sel­burgh scor­ers up against True Ple­as­sure are Michael Dods-trained Cara’s Re­quest, Micky Ham­mond’s Just Paul, Linda Per­ratt’s Sil­ver Rime and three-time track vic­tor Ralphy Boy.
