Just the one runner today, Phil is heading up to Southwell with Quadriga for the 2.15, a competitive looking 1 mile handicap, Douggie Costello on board the 5 year old. Quadriga has been on the go a while but he is back to his favoured surface, although he needs to step up on his most recent form to figure. He won’t be in these colours today, he runs in the green and beige of The Batham Boys – new Owners to the yard and they will be looking forward to a Saturday out at the races. Whitchurch is now on a winter break after his fianl start of 2015, he is coming back to Castleton as many of his owners live just near Whitby and enjoy coming to visit him.
