KEITH DALGLEISH’s attentions may be more focused on the Flat but he has been quietly emerging in the Jump racing sphere and with 32 winners and nearly £300,000 in prize money the Carluke trainer has shown he is a man for all seasons.
Dalgleish has the very exciting Let Me Be as a long term project and the dual bumper will embark on a Flat career over staying trips this season before his trainer lets him loose over hurdles next season and I’m To Blame remains a chaser of very much untapped potential. He could be on display at the Aintree or Ayr Festivals and there could be a similar visit for One Night In Milan who upped his game recently when finishing third in the Rendlesham Hurdle at Haydock
Keith has several in his care who are long awaiting the ground to dry out and Monsieur Co start to look well handicapped when that eventually happens and his Jumps tally should be swelling further in the coming weeks and months.
With 80 winners on the Flat last season there will be a few early forays in that sphere with Home Before Dusk one of the possibilities for the Lingfield Finals day and Red Bond and What’s The Story possibilities for the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster.
Taking a quick time out from an ultra busy schedule, Keith kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about his prospects for what he hopes is going to be a lucrative Spring campaign.
