Ramses De Teillee runs today!
We have two runner today at our local track, Exeter and they are two of our most popular older horses, Remastered and Ramses De Teillee.  They run in the veterans chase qualifier at 4.35pm and Jack Tudor rides Ramses while Brendan Powell rides Remastered for the first time.  There are 15 runners in the race and it looks very competitive but Ramses De Teillee does head the betting at about 7/2.  He did run very well in the final of this series at Warwick on his only start so far this season to be fourth last month and this is the first qualifier for the new season.  He will like conditions and is in good form at home so I would love him to run well.

Remastered has yet to re-capture his best form of last season but he has only had the two starts this term and last time was in in the December Gold Cup at Newbury.  This is his first run in a veterans race and in theory it is the best/easiest opportunity he has had for a while but it still looks a tough race!  He is in as good a form as ever at home and Ashely Farrant who rides him every day has to sit tight every morning!  Fingers crossed he can see out his race better today and be involved in the finish.
