Joe Tizzard: “Sizing At Midnight has been in really good form this season.”
Coral ambassador previews the Tizzard stables’ Wincanton runners
We’ve got four runners at what is always a big day at our local track, starting with Master Debonair in the Elite Hurdle. We’re going to try to make him into a champion hurdler this season and this looks a lovely starting point for him.
He’s in good form at home, although we’d have a slight concern about the ground. He’d like a bit of cut in the ground so we will walk the track, just to check it is genuine good, good to soft.
He’s not got an awful lot to find on the ratings and we’re massively looking forward to his first run of the season.
Sizing At Midnight does need to take another step forward but he’s been in really good form so far this season, with two wins and a second, and he does like the quicker ground.
What he lacks in experience he could make up for on this better going. The track will suit and he’s still progressive, he definitely deserves to take his chance.
We run two in the Bumper. Earth Business is having his first run, as always we’re running them to gain experience, rather than training them to be fully wound up first time up. But he’s a lovely young horse who is doing everything right at home and he’s one to look forward to.
Robbie Power rides Skerries Harbour but I wouldn’t read too much into that. He’s had the one run so has some experience, but Earth Business would have been out last season if racing hadn’t come to a close.
There wouldn’t be much between them at home, we’d just like to see them both run nice races, and it might not be long before we’re novice hurdling with them.
