DEDUCE runs in a mares only novice hurdle over 2 miles at Lingfield tomorrow. There are 9 runners and Jack Quinlan takes the ride. She ran very well for a long time at Uttoxeter last time out but seemed to blow up. This was slightly surprising as she had had a prep race on the flat but she is a stuffy filly so she may have just needed the race. We hope the ground is not too testing as it is still unknown as to whether she actually stays 2 miles over hurdles. She won over 1 mile 5 furlongs on the flat in France so you would expect her to stay but we will learn more tomorrow. She has come out of her last race really well and has thrived since her summer break so we hope she can put in a good performance this time.
