Fry steps Bitofapuzzle up in grade at Huntingdon

BITOFAPUZZLE, who made a striking debut when successful at Bangor in November, steps up in class for the Listed 32Red Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race at Huntingdon (3.40), which has been rescheduled from Boxing Day’s abandoned meeting.

The Richard Barber-owned mare was firmly in command throughout the Bangor closing stages when slamming well-bred Mighty Minnie by eight lengths, and appears set for a bright future.

Trainer Harry Fry, whose stable is in excellent form, said: “It’s a great race, and full credit to Huntingdon, the BHA and the Levy Board for saving it. Bitofapuzzle is in good form. She did it nicely at Bangor and this is another step up. She’s got to improve again, but we’re hoping she can.”

Donald McCain and Keith Reveley, two trainers who do well in this type of event, are hoping their respective runners, Cloudante and Delta Forty can gain some valuable black type.
