Valuable handicap at Ascot on agenda for Tom Lacey's unbeaten Tea Clipper

Fri 10 Jan 2020

Tea Clipper could put his unbeaten record on the line in the Matchbook Holloway’s Handicap Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday week.

A winner of his only start in the point-to-point sphere, the Stowaway gelding has made a big impression in winning each of his three starts under Rules this season.

After making a successful hurdling debut at Warwick in early October, the five-year-old followed up in impressive style at Kempton before completing his hat-trick at Huntingdon last month.

Trainer Tom Lacey considered a return to Warwick for Saturday’s Ballymore Leamington Novices’ Hurdle, but ultimately decided against an outing in that Grade Two contest due to unsuitable ground conditions.

Lacey said: “He doesn’t run at Warwick as I felt the ground on the hurdle track would be too tacky for him.

“He’s fine and he could go to Ascot for the £50,000 handicap hurdle, although again we’ll be governed by ground conditions.”
