Point-to-point: Darnil to reward Crow's journey
Saturday 03 February 2007
The champion rider, Richard Burton, usually comes away from the first Horseheath meeting with at least one winner and Darnil should make his journey from Shropshire worthwhile in the men's open (1.40).
Sheila Crow, Darnil's trainer, won the race in 2005 and it is always worth keeping a close eye on anything she sends on the long trip to the testing Cambridgeshire course. Darnil is a class horse when in the mood and ran as if the outing was needed when fourth on his reappearance at Weston Park last month.
There is a huge entry of 234 at Chaddesley Corbett tomorrow where dual Aintree Foxhunters' winner Katarino may make his return in the men's open (1.00).
