Jarrold Ladies Day Race Meeting – Five Day Entries

The curtain falls on Fakenham Racecourse’s 2021/22 National Hunt Racing season on Sunday with the ladies taking their place in the spotlight for the seven-race Jarrold Ladies Raceday.
The £20,000 Jarrold Handicap Chase is the feature event at 4.25pm with 13 initial entries for the two mile and five furlong contest.
Two lady trainers have interesting entries. Lucy Wadham fields recent Huntingdon runner-up Somekindofstar while Laura Morgan may run hat-trick seeking seven-year-old Percussion, a scorer at Southwell in both April and May.
Other interesting entries include David Pipe’s Newton Abbot winner Al Roc and Plumpton winner Royal Ruby, a 10-year-old from Nicky Henderson’s stable.
The card starts at 1.50pm., fittingly with a female jockeys’ handicap hurdle. Hey Bob, the Olly Murphy trained winner at Fakenham’s previous meeting, has been entered as has Wymondham trainer Caroline Fryer’s six-year-old gelding Cloudy Wednesday, an impressive runner-up at that same meeting.
Three horses yet to win over the larger obstacles have been entered in the 2.20pm Jarrold Novices’ Chase. Getaway Jewel, from Micky Hammond’s yard, Ar Mest, representing Henry Oliver, and Mike Sowersby’s Rana of Kutch may all take their chance, the latter recently a Market Rasen runner-up.
Top trainer Alan King could run four-year-old filly Sweet Moon in the two-mile maiden hurdle at 2.50pm, the youngster a runner-up at Newton Abbot in her first run for King since joining his stable from the French base of Guy Macaire.
Pure Bubbles, fourth on hurdling debut at Plumpton, and Barenboim, third on debut at Kempton for Fergal O’Brien, in a first run since leaving the Newmarket yard of Michael Bell, are also interesting entries.
The 3.20pm Queen’s Dragoon Guard Prince of Wales Cup Chase has attracted 15 entries including Dubai Guest, runner-up at Fakenham’s previous meeting and veteran grey mare Goodnight Charlie, who was fourth at that same meeting, to Tommie Beau in the Snellings Norfolk National.
The Milton Harris trained Mr Yeats catches the eye among the entries for the 3.52pm novice hurdle while the final race of the season is the 4.55pm handicap hurdle over two miles.
That contest could go to the Sarah Humphrey trained Glimpse of Gold, who notched up his fourth Fakenham success earlier this month in his 10th race at the course. Oliver Sherwood’s Huntingdon winner Rhebus Road and Fergal O’Brien’s Market Rasen scorer Oslo are other notable initial entries.
