Richard Fahey: Worried about draw for his charity bet

I'm pleased with the draw for Sir Reginald who races from seven in the Betfred Mile. He ran well the other day at Newmarket and needs to step up again. We hope and think he'll stay this trip and he could run well at a huge price - although running well here could easily mean finishing fourth or fifth.

I'm very disappointed with Boom And Bloom's draw in the Telegraph Nursery. I'd have said she was one of my better chances of the week had she been racing from a lower stall. It's still not impossible from where she is but it does make it tougher. She won over five the other day which is her bare minimum, this is her trip seven furlongs, and we think she's well handicapped. She's tough and genuine and I'll make her my charity bet despite the draw worry.

Finally Sioux Rising is in foal and if she could nick some more black typle in the Oak Tree Stakes we'd all be delighted but it's going to be very tough from stall 13.
