Betfair Ambassador's Trainers Quotes Ahead Of The Weekend

Betfair Ambassador Insight – Saturday 6 March

There is plenty of top class horse racing on Saturday in the UK and Ireland and Betfair’s stable of ambassadors have some strong chances….

Leading handlers Paul Nicholls Joseph O'Brien and Olly Murphy have given some key quotes about some of their horses running at the weekend that are worth looking into.

Paul Nicholls: Sancy has a Grand chance at Newbury on Saturday

“Grand Sancy won impressively at Chepstow in October before a blip at Wincanton when he choked a little bit and half panicked after making a mistake on tacky ground. Basically his wind is fine and I've held him back for the spring because he can't handle the type of deep mid winter ground we've had over the past three months. We know Grand Sancy goes well fresh, he will relish the ground, the trip is right and his best form has been racing left handed so he has loads in his favour in a race we have farmed in recent times with nine winners in 15 years.”

Joseph O'Brien: High hopes for Sparrow at Fairyhouse

“Scarlet And Dove has made a good transition to chasing this season, winning at Limerick and in the process of running a big race against Colreevy in a Grade 2 mares novice chase at Thurles only to fall at the second last. She looks to have a leading chance on form and coming back to two miles shouldn't be an issue for her. We'll be hopeful that she can go very close.”

Olly Murphy: Alpha Carinae is ready for the step up at Doncaster

“Alpha Carinae is stepping up in both class and trip after having a winter break and I think she will handle the good ground well. She doesn't look too bad at the weights and I'd say she has a good each-way chance.”
