Five Day Entries for Jarrolds Ladies Day Race Meeting, Sunday 2nd June


Two horses could be looking to complete a hat-trick of victories when they compete in the feature King’s Lynn Chase, worth £20,000, when Fakenham racecourse brings down the curtain on season 2023/24 with its annual Jarrold Ladies Day on Sunday (June 2).

Among the 13 entries for the 4.15pm two miles and five furlongs steeplechase are Ingennio and Trapisa. The former, when trained by Richard Hobson, won over course and distance on both April 1 and April 12 and could attempt a splendid north Norfolk track three-timer if the six-year-old gelding makes his debut appearance for trainer Micky Hammond.

Among his rivals could be the J P McManus owned mare Trapisa, trained by Jonjo O’Neill. The mare scored at Warwick on May 6 and turned out six days later to win again at Ludlow.

Other entries include My Gift To You for James Owen, a Fakenham winner in November, Time To Bite for Chris Gordon, a recent Newton Abbot winner, and Riskintheground for Harry Skelton and trainer brother Dan, a Hereford scorer a few days ago.

The action starts at 2pm with 25 entries for the Shereford Maiden Hurdle. Among those with decent form are Bristol Hill with Lee Edwards booked to ride for Kevin Frost, the gelding third on hurdling debut at Huntingdon.

Dirty Den, for trainer Syd Hosie, was runner-up recently at Hereford while Pleasant Man, now trained by Jack Jones, was third over hurdles for Paul Nicholls in February.

The 2.35pm We Race Again on Friday October 18 Hurdle has attracted 14 entries including Chatty Chich, a Huntingdon winner for Dan Skelton a fortnight ago after previously finishing second at Fakenham in April.

Inspector Lynley, runner-up on his first run after a long break for Neil Mulholland at Stratford recently, and Mountain Bay, third at Fakenham in May for Seamus Mullins are also entered.

The Skeltons have Omaha Wish among 14 entries for the 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards Prince of Wales Cup Chase at 3.10pm, the mare third on chase debut at Warwick in April while also among the entries are Ferrybridge for James Owen, third at the course in February and Neil King’s Go Fox, placed three times at Fakenham this season.

King Otis won at Fakenham on May 7 when beating Nevendon and both are entered for the Jarrold Hurdle at 3.45pm in which Donald McCain has recent Ludlow winner Collingham.

The closing 4.45pm Great Ryburgh Female Jockeys Hurdle takes on huge local significance if six-year-old mare Kosasiempre, trained by Stuart Edmunds, runs in the Fakenham Racing Club colours, having scored for the first time last time out at Market Rasen.
