Thoughts on Dalatara

Dalatara runs today at Chepstow (Thursday 20th July), she lines up at 4.40pm with Richard Kingscote taking the ride.

Dalatara looked a bit outpaced at Chester last time out and should appreciate the step up in distance here. The switch to handicaps is also a big plus as it looks a more realistic level at this stage of her career.


Jimmy Mark is the only previous winner in the field but hasn’t matched that form the last twice and is vulnerable to less exposed types. Handicap debutant Wight Fifteen should appreciate the extra distance. Queensland Bay has improved with racing and ran well enough in a slightly better race last time out. Similar comments apply to Purnika, who actually finshed in front of Dalatara at Haydock, although that was Dalatara’s debut run.

Dalatara runs for owners Maureen Coxon & Partners and will be led up by Tamsin Karn who cares for her daily.
