Fred gets a downgrade

3.5.21. It seems we aren’t the only ones wanting NODUFF ARIA to break his maiden tag. Despite his last time out second in A5 grade in a respectable 29.12, the Monmore Green Racing Manager has decided enough is enough and has dropped Fred to A6 on Wednesday afternoon in the search for that elusive victory.

Fred has had six attempts in A5 so far recording two seconds and a third but is yet to breach the 29 second barrier. The 5.18 race on Wednesday sees him again in his favoured trap six but with no less than three opponents who are also downgraded for the event. As always we will be hoping for a decent break and that Fred doesn’t run too wide off the last bend.

Meanwhile he continues to thrive in the Buckland kennels, having now worked out which pocket his treats are kept in and licking his lips like an open racer, as pictured.
