Harry Fry happy to have lower profile with Stayers' hope Unowhatimeanharry

Sat 3 Mar 2018

Harry Fry is pleased Unowhatimeanharry is heading to the Cheltenham Festival under the radar this year.

The 10-year-old was an odds-on favourite in the Stayers' Hurdle 12 months ago but was beaten by Nichols Canyon, though he did turn the tables at Punchestown.

On his last two starts, however, he has been beaten by Beer Goggles and Sam Spinner, apparently with no excuses.

With the Festival on the horizon and the country blanketed in snow, Fry is hoping to get a gallop into his small but select Festival team away from home.

"While we've been able to work at home, we've been trying to get a good gallop into them on an away day and that hasn't been possible due to the weather this week," said Fry in his Betway blog.

"It's slightly frustrating, but they've been running all season and are perfectly fit. Hopefully if things improve, we can get away early next week and give them a nice change of scenery to freshen them up and get them spot on for the Festival.

"Unowhatimeanharry is well and very much on target to run in the Stayers'. I'm quite happy for him to go there somewhat under the radar.

"He's been written off in the market, and although he faces a stiff task as a 10-year-old, he seems in good order.

"Bags Groove is in the Coral Cup and the Pertemps Final.

"He wants better ground and, if conditions are in his favour, we'll look to step him up to three miles for the first time in the Pertemps.

"Drumcliff could run in either the novices' handicap chase on the Tuesday or the Plate on Thursday."
