Geraghty cautious for Sandown

February 02, 2013 10:20:31 UK

Barry Geraghty heads for Sandown Park this afternoon for what has now become an all chase meeting.

With the hurdle course waterlogged and the chase course surviving an inspection yesterday afternoon, the ground is going to be incredibly testing.

And with the stiff uphill finish to cope with, horses with bags of stamina are going to be needed if the afternoon isn't to turn out to be a bookmaker's bonanza.

One may be Kudu Country, who according to the Irishman who blogging for At The Races wrote: "It's the first time I've sat on him, but he was 50 lengths behind Sprinter Sacre last April."

He adds that what gives him most encouragement is that the horse operates well on heavy ground and it's "certainly going to ride testing".

He's aboard Captain Conan (2.25) and the rider said he couldn't fault his two chase performances this season on soft ground adding: "The figures certainly point my lad's way."

His other ride for the Nicky Henderson stable is Roberto Goldback (3.35) in the three-mile Betfred Masters Handicap chase.

He claims that the horse would prefer better ground and that Keppols Hill is a big danger whilst in the 3.00 Mad Max has "had plenty of issues in his time and he is better suited by decent ground".

Roberto Goldback is 8.00 to win the 3.35, with Keppols Hill 2.87 and Mister Hyde 5.50.
