Qipco 1000 Guineas 2014: Chriselliam setback
Qipco 1,000 Guineas 2014 favourite, CHRISELLIAM,has suffered a training setback and is undergoing treatment for a poisoned foot.
Owned by a partnership that includes former champion Flat jockey Willie Carson, Chriselliam was revealed on Thursday to be Europe’s top two-year-old filly for 2013 with a rating of 117, 3lb clear of Vorda in second and only 5lb behind leading juvenile colt Toormore.
Trainer Charlie Hills said the Fillies’ Mile and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Turf winner was responding well to treatment but that no chances would be taken with her.
“She has poison in her off-hind foot,” he said. “We have had to get the infection under control which we seem to have done at the moment.
“It is obviously a setback and being the filly she is we are doing everything we can and are taking no chances at all. As she is one of the favourites for the Guineas we wanted people to know she has had a setback.”
Onto todays racing…..what a poor week with the class of racing on offer, just two bets all week but a nice 8/1 winner and a 3/1 2nd?
It doesn’t get much better today with Class 5 & 6’s at Lingfield and Wolverhampton where we have just one selection. However goodnews is that we have a new Ireland Correspondent…….’The TurfMeister’ comes on board and he’s two good things going at Dundalk tonight?
Wolverhampton 17.30…..disappointingly we see no reason to oppose the favourite, DUTCH RIFLE, who impressed when making a winning debut here a few weeks ago. That form has been subsequently franked as the runner-up has since won. A win only price we are afraid at a best 2/1 with Skybet. With just 7 runners we can’t even push an EW selection as the race looks set to be contested by the primaries in the market?
A man of few words, we will try and drill him for some words but here he goes with…..
Dundalk 19.45…….INDIAN LANDING
