Malangen Hat-trick


         Malangen - 3 Wins in a Row

In my children’s school they give a star of the week award to a child in the class who has done well during the week.  The star of the week at Pond House this week has to be Malangen who was as once again star on the race track and won for the second consecutive Saturday.  He put up a really determined performance to bring up his hat-trick of wins.  He looked in a little bit of trouble leaving the back straight but he may have found the trip on the sharp side round this track and all he did was keep responding to Tom Scudamore’s urgings and won a shade cosily in the end.  The handicapper is sure to have his say tomorrow but our four year old is in good heart at the moment and hopefully there is more to come.  He prefers the quicker ground and will be kept on the go this summer.  He has the option of going back on the flat at some point while we will also consider sending him chasing in July as he really loves his jumping and four year olds get a nice allowance at this time of year.  Read more...

 


Today there are five meetings, jumps cards at Perth, Chepstow and Bangor plus two flat cards at Sandown and Doncaster.  David has two runners at Chepstow this evening.  Midnight Magic runs in the first race at 4.50pm, a 3m2f handicap chase.  He was running okay at Exeter last time when a bad mistake cost him any chance but he would have to improve to figure here.  David Noonan is on board once again.  Delface run in the last race at 8pm, a 2mile handicap hurdle.  He has been placed and run well on his last three runs and should be there abouts again.  Ideally he would prefer the ground much softer but he would have a chance under Tom Scudamore.
