KASSIS (Kalanisi/Gastina) went to Leicester Racecourse on 27th November 2016 for the ‘Dale Hall & Hickman Associates Mare’s Handicap Hurdle’ race,
a Class 4 race over 2m 41/2f with 9 runners over 10 hurdles on Good to Soft going,
being ridden by Nick Scholfield for the first time.
We are very happy to report that Kassis WON this race !
RACING POST comment and analysis of the race:
“A competitive mares´ handicap hurdle.
KASSIS was prominent, chased leader 2nd to 6th, went 2nd again approaching 3 out, ridden to lead flat and stayed on well.”
“KASSIS was switched from fences for a first hurdling start since April 2015 and proved well enough handicapped to gain her fourth career success, a second in this discipline to go with two chase wins.”
QUOTE from Jamie Snowden, trainer:
“We hoped Kassis might have a little bit in hand back over hurdles and the plan will be to get some black type next to her name, as that is important for potential broodmares."
