The start of a new racing week sees LRS with just the one runner this afternoon when Glorious Rio lines up in a 14 runner ultra-competitive 5-furlong handicap at Pontefract (17.15).
He will again be ridden by Jonny Peate the promising 7lb claimer who has won four times on Rio from just five rides!
Over the last two months the 4-year-old has won five races and has risen two stone in the weights from 48 up to today’s mark of 76.
Together with other recent winners such as Lancashire Life (50/1) and Mansfield at Musselburgh, Stella heads today’s Hot Trainers list in the Racing Post. A great achievement for a small yard such as ours!
Glorious Rio (Jonny Peate) wins impressively at Newcastle on 8th October 2021.
