Russell giving Tap a turnHeadlines
Tap Night

Lucinda Russell is hoping Tap Night can enhance his big reputation against three rivals in the Scottish Future Champions Novices' Chase at Musselburgh.

Rated in the 140s over hurdles, the six-year-old was snapped up by leading owner JP McManus prior to his excellent chasing debut at Ayr in early January.

"It's only a small field, but it's still quite a tight little race. Our horse is in good form and he's schooled a couple of times since he ran at Ayr. Everything has gone very well. It will be more valuable experience for him and we'll see how we get on," said the trainer.

"AP (McCoy) is in Ireland so Barry Geraghty rides, which is great. It's the first time Barry has ridden for me."

The John Smith's Scottish Champion Chase has attracted an interesting field of nine runners, including last year's third De Boitron.

His trainer, Ferdy Murphy, said: "He ran well to finish third in the race last year and I think he's a bit more forward this time around, so hopefully he'll run well.

"I'd prefer to be running him over a bit further and we had him in over two and a half miles at Wetherby, but the ground there is going to be testing and I'd rather run him over shorter on better ground.

"He's in very good form at home so hopefully he'll run a decent race."

John Quinn's Doncaster scorer Kashmir Peak renews rivalry with the Paul Nicholls-trained runner-up Sametegal in the John Smith's Scottish Triumph Hurdle Trial, while the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained According To Trev drops in class and aims to get back on the winning trail in the Albert Bartlett Scottish Trial.
