onlooker:  in non-Handicaps it always Blind faith.  Debutants etc. Not for the faint hearted.

They either run well or bomb out.

One of the better trainer blogs

He said about Sapphire Lady:

'Sapphire Lady (Paul) makes her chasing debut in the 2m 4f mares’ beginners chase. We have been happy with her schooling and this trip and ground will be fine for her. She has a good each-way chance here.'

Thank you - punts - But that would not be for me - as I do not back Steeplechasers - let alone Novice and Beginner  Chasers -  and his Hurdlers are always way too short anyway.

You have to be pleased for the Owner Bree4der of Sapphire Lady for his perseverance - although I would imagine that Willie's Training Fees will have been far in excess of the 27,000 (less deductions) that she has  previously accrued in her career... the last 7,000  having been almost 2 years ago to the day.
