Blackhouse Heidi is bound for Sheffield following her victory in the stayers’ event in the Total Recycling 640 at Newcastle on Tuesday.

The bitch, who has won five of her last six starts, was in irrepressible form again on home sand, taking command early and keeping up a relentless gallop throughout the 640 metres to set up a facile five-length success over Fares Please in 39.08 (-10) and trainer Harry Williams immediately targeted the Stones Bitter Queen Mother Memorial Cup, now worth £4,000 to the winner, which gets under way at Owlerton on Tuesday, March 10.

He said: “She is a bitch with a bit of pace – she has clocked 28.36 for the 480 metres at Newcastle – and she stays forever. She has winning form for 660 metres and Sheffield so the Queen Mother Memorial will be the plan provided she doesn’t come in season.”
