Russell Mare Ready For Another Win At Kelso

2nd March 2019, 10:20 by Gerard Lees

Consistent Type Ready To Get Her Head In Front With Conditions To Suit

At some stage soon, ALIZEE DE JANEIRO will be off to become a broodmare but in the meantime can gain more wins to add to the six she has already accumulated. She has been mixing chases and hurdles in the past nine months and has won here at Kelso twice in that time, once over the bigger obstacles. Back in November, in a chase over course and distance, she jumped with confidence and pulled away up the run in to beat reliable yardstick and now veteran Civil Unrest into second. A hurdle win from subsequent winner Tokaramore followed before she produced an 11 length third to Monsieur Co, who won at Musselburgh on Thursday. The daughter of Network is top on BTOPlus+ speed figures and second on regular ratings and gets ticks in course, and distance boxes for her sire's progeny. She is the only one in the small field not to get negatives and though he might very well win, the favourite, EL TERREMOTO, who makes the long trip from Gloucestershire, has made mistakes in his four chases so far and has fallen in the last two. OKOTO is also an uncertain jumper and SWORD OF FATE may well "bounce" after running down the field on Wednesday after a 79 days' break from the course. At an easily found 3/1 Alizee should prove to be other than a mare.
