4.00 Epsom – Blueberry Hill – WON 9/4

A notebook horse from Doncaster and also one of our Ten To Follow. This step up in trip should suit and this is perhaps a sighter for Epsom and a one of the handicaps at the Derby meeting in June. His main market rivals who’ve also run a few times have similar ratings, where we feel Blueberry Hill is capable of a good deal better than his mark, so he’ll hopefully show that there and prove to be one well worth following.

Notebook Comments:Doncaster, Blueberry Hill,He travelled quite nicely just off the pace, tracking the odds on favourite. Just tapped for toe as the pace quickened, he finished his race off really well under hands and heels, suggesting he’d appreciate a step up in trip. Now handicapped having run three times, it’ll be interesting to see what marks he’s given. He looks to have a good deal of improvement to come.

Ten To Follow Comments:Blueberry Hill – 3yo Trained by John GosdenShowed plenty of promise as a 2yo, finishing 2nd on his debut at Kempton, and then 3rd at the same venue on his 2nd start where he found a little trouble in running before staying on nicely without being asked a serious question. Making his reappearance at Doncaster he bumped into a highly rated winner and again ran with great credit, staying on nicely into 3rd place having been slightly outpaced as the winner struck for home. He’s sure to benefit from stepping up in trip and can win a maiden before progressing through the handicap ranks, as he’s been given an initial mark of 79 which is sure to under-estimate his ability.
