Gavin Cromwell to go the distance with Jer's Girl

Wed 4 Oct 2017

Jer's Girl is likely to be stepped up in trip after finishing fourth in the Istabraq Hurdle at Tipperary on Sunday.

Gavin Cromwell's dual Grade One-winning hurdler, owned by JP McManus, made a successful reappearance in a Flat race at Roscommon and turned out just six days later at Grade Three level.

The five-year-old was beaten a little over five lengths into fourth place by the McManus-owned former Champion Hurdle hero Jezki, and Cromwell was satisfied with his star mare's performance.

"She ran a really good race and seems to have come out of it fine," said the Navan-based trainer.

"Maybe we need to step her up in trip now and, in hindsight, maybe it came a bit quick after Roscommon, too.

"We were delighted with her in Roscommon. It was a nice return.

"We don't have any definite plans for her at the moment.

"The handicapper has put her up 3lb for the run on Sunday, which I thought was very harsh. And they wonder why they can't get decent fields in these races."
