ICE SLICE heads for Newbury tomorrow to run in a mile handicap, he is drawn 11 of the 11 runners. He was unfortunate last time out at Windsor as he slipped coming out of the stall so ran well under the circumstances. He has been dropped 2 pounds by the handicapper so is now rated 75, he won off this mark earlier in the year. He will be ridden by Ryan Tate who still claims a useful 3 pounds. Ideally we would have run him over further than a mile but we are running out of options at this stage of the season. He will like the soft ground so we are hoping for the best tomorrow.
