Dissavril to skip Sandown with Aintree in mind

Tue 6 Mar 2018

Dissavril will step up in class at Aintree next month after connections of the potentially exciting mare decided against running her at Sandown on Saturday.

Emma Lavelle's six-year-old grey made a big impression on her British debut at Market Rasen in January when she won a Listed mares' bumper by two and a quarter lengths.

Dissavril had been thought likely to contest a similar race at the weekend, but she will instead head to Aintree for the Grade Two mares' bumper on April 12.

Owner Paul Jacobs said: "I took a view that we would rather keep her for Aintree.

"The ground might be chewed up at Sandown so I think spring ground at Aintree might suit her far better than running her at a tough, uphill track, when the going might not be in her favour.

"She will also not have to carry a 4lb penalty at Aintree and I think the track, on better ground, will be better for her.

"Having won a Listed race, she deserves a shot at a Grade Two."
