Rainbow Spirit

Good afternoon from Newmarket. We continue our quiet start to the week with just the one runner today, Rainbow Spirit in the mile and a quarter fillies handicap at Nottingham at 4.05.

This filly is a daughter of Charm Spirit with some smart relations, although reading her pedigree is a fools errand! Her best sibling was the dual Listed winner Navajo Chief, who excelled at a mile or less, whilst another of her half-brothers, Imphal, was an out and out stayer.

We have taken the view that Rainbow herself will benefit from a step up in trip, so we start off her three-year-old campaign at a mile and a quarter. She showed a little promise in three runs last year, finishing a fair way adrift of the principals each time, but in fairly warm contests. She has been allotted an opening mark of 63, and we need to use this run to find out where we stand with here. She has done nicely over the winter, and hopefully we will learn plenty this afternoon. Stevie Donhoe rides.


All the best, Ed.
