DEDUCE had an outing on the flat recently which has hopefully given her a good preparation for a winter hurdling campaign. She is running in a 2 mile mares only maiden at Uttoxeter and there are 12 runners. We dropped her back to 10 furlongs on the flat at Chelmsford last time out as an experiment but she didn't have the speed over that trip. She performed well in her last run over hurdles finishing third and we then gave her a summer break which she has benefited well from. She has been in good form at home since her recent run on the flat. The jumping string have been running very well so we hope she can continue the yards good form tomorrow.
