Michael Scudamore is considering Grade Two options at Doncaster and Sandown for his classy mare Nada To Prada.
The five-year-old has won three of her four races under rules, and landed a Listed event at Haydock on Saturday.
Scudamore has identified two potential targets next – the Yorkshire Rose Mares’ Hurdle at Doncaster on January 30 or the Jane Seymour Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Sandown on February 18.
“She did it nicely and she’s beaten a good yardstick in Rayna’s World, a horse with very good form, so to beat a horse like that gives you a lot of satisfaction,” said the Herefordshire trainer.
“She’s so lightly raced you’d think she can only improve physically, so hopefully she is still improving.
“She’s got a good old knee action, so she wouldn’t want very quick ground. She’s only really run on heavy so far but she seems fine on soft, and I’m sure she’d be OK on good to soft – but you probably wouldn’t want to risk her on much quicker than that.
“There are a couple of options for her. There’s a Grade Two at Doncaster and then there’s the one at Sandown as well over two and a half, so they are what we’ve got out eye on at the moment.
“She seems to have come out of the race well and she’s a big mare – so although she’s slick and accurate over hurdles, she’s got plenty of size and you’d like to think she’d be even better over a fence.”
