Past Winners » Casablanca Mix 


I am backing Casablanca Mix in the Summer Plate.

Nicky Henderson’s mare was a talented mare last season.  She finished second in a decent handicap chase at Kempton last October, and she finished a good third behind Happy Diva and Magic Of Light in a listed mares’ chase at Huntingdon in February.  That is strong form in the context of this race.

She has form at the track, she ran Rons Dream to a half a length in a listed three-mile mares’ chase at Market Rasen last November, and she proved her wellbeing with a game win at Aintree in May.

She is only seven, and she has the potential to progress beyond the handicap rating of 143 off which she races today.  Also Nico de Boinville rides her in preference to Pacific De Baune.  It is worth backing her at 7/1 or 13/2.
