There’s eight races on the card for our race night, here’s who running and their owners.
Race 1 – 1881 Guineas
The first race of the evening is the 1881 Guineas which has been sponsored by The Car Guys Limited who are a specialised used car dealership in the North West.
The early favourite in the race is Sir Nige, although the horse has a bad temperament and can often find it hard to make it over the line. The horse is UK based as its connections are opposed to freedom of movement.
Another horse in the running is Another Horse which is owned by Carole Heppell, the mare has showed some good form recently.
Bringing up the rear is Dropped, owned by Stu Small who only seems to be in the race to make up the numbers.
Race 2 – Devil’s Acre Stakes
The Devil’s Acre Stakes is the second race of the night which has been sponsored by Tim Harper.
The standout horse in this race is Lightning Bug owned by Jane Collister, it runs consistently and will be challenging for the win.
Straight Lines owned by Andy Pickles doesn’t quite live up to his name, he’s often found taking the longest route which can hinder his chances.
Wayne Griffiths’ horse Oh Dear has shown some promise but it can often run too close to the rails which leads to its downfall.
Race 3 – The Emperor’s Gold Cup
The third race is The Emperor’s Gold Cup which has been sponsored by The Bathroom Project who offer a full bathroom design service overseen by an industry specialist team with over 50 years experience.
Stu Wilson’s horse, Tinman, is a well oiled machine and will look to get out of the blocks early, although it can struggle to find a second wind towards the end of the race.
Crazy by name, crazy by nature – Crazy Frog owned by Jordan Potts is a horse that’s a bit of a maverick, you don’t know what he’s going to do next!
The rather ironically named Good Bet, owned by Richard Robinson has never won a race, will he buck that trend on Saturday?
Race 4 – Cheadle Hulme Oaks
Race 4 on the card is the Cheadle Hulme Oaks sponsored by Barradells Opticians who offer the latest in eye care with traditional values in customer service.
Angela Barratt Smith’s horse, Little Polveir is a famous name down the ages and will be looking to live up to its reputation.
You Tube, owned by Finn Lindsey is a horse worth watching, with two wins from the last five races he’s going to be challenging again.
Heartbeat is a horse to keep an eye on as if you’ve backed it your blood will really be pumping, it likes to hang around the back of the field and then end the race strongly.
Race 5 – Prix de L’CHCC
The fifth race of the night is the Prix de L’CHCC which is sponsored by Fountain of Beauty who are a hairdressers and beauty salon on Fountains Road in Cheadle Hulme.
Consistent describes this horse to a tea. PG Tips owned by Paul Graveney has a solid form guide but will be looking to go one better to pick up a major victory.
Judge Senior owned by Steve Pickles is a steady horse although he’s very unlikely to be challenging for the win. Expect him to be retired for studding soon.
Cathi Wilson’s horse Frankalisious is an up and coming horse who is looking to land a victory in his maiden race, it will be interesting to see if it can challenge.
Race 6 – Sticky Wicket Stayers
Race 6 is the Sticky Wickets Stayers which is sponsored by Vortex Cars who sell quality used cars in Stockport.
Charlotte, owned by Charlotte Burke is a promising filly. Andy Pickles is a hard grafting jockey although he isn’t afraid to use his whip to ensure he gets a good ride, who knows where this horse will be at in 9 months if these two strike a good partnership.
Howard Read’s horse Klippity Klopp is a horse to be respected as it comes out the blocks with good pace however in previous years it’s fallen out the final hurdle.
Aurelia Kirby’s The Sith Lord‘s Apprentice will be looking to use the force to pick up her first win but it’s a long and testing track so it will be interesting to see if the horse can make it through the wars.
