18th Jan

THE GLANCING QUEEN (14/1) may be aimed at The G2 Mares Novice Hurdle rather than the G1 Mares Hurdle. (50/1) A high-class bumper horse and a very creditable third in the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle at Newbury 16 days earlier, she won easily at Bangor on 14th Jan under her penalty, strolling clear from the last to supplement her November Warwick win. She was 8th in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham last March, and she probably does more at home. King said: “She was fine after her run at Bangor. I don’t know where we will go now, but I’d imagine we will try to find something next month. She is entered in the 2½m Mares’ race at Cheltenham –  but she is not slow, and she might be better against the novices, and I’m probably favouring that at the moment.”
