Weather Watch For Ruby
I will be keeping a close eye on the weather forecasts ahead of Rock on Ruby's next race over fences in the Racing Post Lightning Novices' Chase at Doncaster on Saturday.
We very much want him to run to gain more experience over fences ahead of the Arkle Chase at the Festival but I am concerned about the soft going as he really does need better ground. At the moment he is on target for Doncaster but there are bands of rain set to cross the country this week so I may have a difficult decision to make at declaration time.
As a precaution we have also entered Rock on Ruby for the Champion Hurdle, purely as a back up plan, though the focus is very much on chasing.
We would only consider a switch to the Champion Hurdle if we were not able to give him enough experience over fences or we were not happy with how he was progressing as a chaser.
