Irish Cavalier “in the form of his life” ahead of the Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday. However, we are worried by the forecast rain in Merseyside on top of already soft ground.
Irish Cavalier heads to Haydock on the back of a career-best performance, having downed Cue Card and Menorah in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby. “He’s in the form of his life – he really couldn’t be better – but my only worry is that there is so much rain due,” said Rebecca.
“Now he’s a bit older he does handle the softer ground better, but there’s no doubt he’s at his best on nice ground as all his best form is normally in the spring. He’s still only seven and I hope he’s still improving. Each year so far he’s improved a stone so I hope that continues.”
