Sophie Olivia is a talented mare owned by BettingOdds.com CEO Andy Bell and the horse makes her latest outing on Tuesday where connections hope she will get back on the winning trail.
Having started the National Hunt season with an impressive win at Hexham where Sophie Olivia obliged at odds of 16/1, she was pulled up a month later at Ayr, although the mare is now back at a racecourse and bidding to put things right.
The seven-year-old is trained by Martin Todhunter and will be ridden on this occasion by Danny Cook, with Henry Brooke having previously steered her to success.
Andy is heading to the Newcastle track to watch his horse in action and it could be an exciting month of racing for the businessman, with Bell also having a 50% share in Lanzarote Hurdle winner Big Time Dancer.
Big Time Dancer is entered for two races at the Cheltenham Festival, although it is thought that connections are leaning towards the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap race on the Friday of the meeting.
Andy told BettingOdds.com: “Sophie has always done really well for us and we’re hoping that she returns to form at Newcastle.
“It will be her first time running at this course although the trainer reports that she’s fit as a fiddle and we think she’s got a decent chance of beating her opponents.”
Sophie Olivia is named after Andy’s youngest daughter, with Song Saa likely to go off favourite and the Tom George-trained runner seems to be the one to beat.
