More To Be Produced At Mussleburgh
Consistent Type Ready To Get Her Head In Front With Conditions To Suit
As a seven-year-old, TOKARAMORE has not been raced too often, being taken to the course on just 10 occasions since her first, and winning outing in a bumper at Kelso two and a half years ago.
The total trips have produced two wins and twice as many places, and she seems to give her running, despite wearing the hood since her debut.
The daughter of Sulamani has been in the care of Dumfries trainer Iain Jardine throughout the time since and he will know everything there is to know about her optimum conditions which she seemingly has today.
In her last three races the mare has been runner-up over 2m2f, and beaten less than a collective four lengths at trips of both two and three miles. She clearly doesn't like very soft ground and was pulled up on heavy at Sedgefield last Spring, so two and a half on good looks about perfect, an observation backed up by the positive she gets from BTO under "Sire distance".
Competing today in a race that lacks strength in depth, the BTO top-rated mare must have every chance of getting off the mark over hurdles at the ninth time of asking at the widely available 9/4. RUBYTWO looks next best after bumping into a big improver in Eternally Yours on her Newcastle handicap debut just before Christmas, and HOPE'S WISHES is second in on ratings.
