Apprentice Shelley Birkett will have her first ride for us tomorrow when she rides GLITTERING in an apprentice handicap at Thirsk. There are 9 runners and she is drawn 2. We are heading for Thirsk to get suitable ground for her, we hope it will still be on the soft side of good by Friday. They could get some further rain today which would help. She ran her best race to date last time out on soft ground at Nottingham over the same trip of a mile. We have booked Shelley Birkett as she is now based up in the North and is an experienced apprentice. This will be GLITTERING's first run in a handicap, she has an experienced jockey for this type of race, she will like the ground and the trip should suit her so we hope she can run well tomorrow.
