IT is a busy couple of days coming up for the Phantom House team with runners at a number of meetings.
Tonight, Fang and Slow To Hand head to Chelmsford. The former lines up in the finale on the card, a handicap over 5f while the latter will have his second career start in the 7f maiden. Owned by David Batten, Fang should strip fitter for his recent return at Newmarket and a return to him best form from last season would see him in with a good chance.
On Saturday, Mrs Gallagher heads to Nottingham for a 5f fillies’ novice event. Ms E Banks’s filly made a winning debut at Ascot in May and was drawn on the wrong side when midfield in the Queen Mary. She has been pleasing William since Royal Ascot and this looks an ideal spot for her to regain the winning thread.
William said: “We have a few runners coming up. Fang won for us last season and should have come on for his comeback run. He has run well on the all-weather before and I think he’ll run well. Mrs Gallagher is a filly we have always liked and she won a good maiden at Ascot. Things didn’t fall right in the Queen Mary when she was drawn on the wrong side but she has come out that well. It is never easy giving weight away in novice races but she is a nice filly who should run very well.”
