Thoughts on Closeness

Closeness is our first runner of 2023 whilst also having her first run for the stable. She lines up at Chelmsford at 5.30pm under Jason Hart.

Closeness showed a small bit of form on her initial racecourse appearances before losing her way for previous connections. She’s had a long break, so in a way we are working with a clean slate. The filly has been building up steadily at home and is ready to get back to the races. She has a wide draw to overcome. We’d expect her to come forward after such a long break fitness wise. We’ll also learn quite a bit more about her too. She has shown enough at home to suggest she can win races if translating that level of ability to the track.

This level of racing is always tricky many of the horses aren’t consistent. Last weeks Kempton winner Bawaader looks capable of following up. No Diggity has been successful at this level in the past and should come forward for his first run in a while. Twistaline has slipped down the ratings and has won moderate races in the past.

Closeness runs in the colours of owner Lee David New and will be led up by Ilse Belien.
