Lady Balko runs today ay Chepstow!
Today is of course Grand National Day!  We don’t have any runners at Aintree but we do have two at Chepstow, King Turgeon and Lady Balko.  King Turgeon runs in the 2.15pm handicap chase over 2m7f and Gearoid Harney rides.  He bounced right back to form last time at Taunton in first time blinkers to be a very close second and I don’t see why he won’t go very well today.  It is quite a trappy open looking race and we are 9/2 third best in the betting, but he finished second at the track earlier this season and with Gearoid back on board claiming seven pounds hopefully we won’t be far away.  I am not sure he appreciated the really heavy ground he encountered mid-way through his season and liked the better conditions last time and a repeat of that run gives him every chance.  He is in good form at home so fingers crossed!
