Abbot's Whisper - Racing Review Tuesday 24th September
Henry Daly’s mare TOPTOTTI justified her strong support to start 5/4 favourite in The newtonabbotracing.com Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle 2m 3f. She showed she was inform as she tracked the leaders, went second approaching two out and led thanks to a great jump at that flight going on to beat Presenting Me by 2 ¼ lengths.
Top Totti is rated the best of these on official figures but she disappointed when last seen, so a chance is taken with NESTONGRACE who scored over C&D on her hurdle debut in May. Although that form needs improving upon, she should be open to plenty more progress on what is only her second start over obstacles.
The Emma Juvenile Hurdle Race 2m 1f looked a very open affair with only five runners going to post. WALTERWHITE, rated 67 on the Flat is proving to be better at the hurdling game. Trained by Philip Hobbs and ridden by Tom O’Brien he took up the lead after the second fence and made all going well clear after the third last to win by a 32 length margin from Karl Marx.
