Three More Winners

The excellent form of the stable continued last week with three winners taking our seasonal tally to 36.  Gericault Roque (pictured above), Paricolor and Umbrigado all prevailed, whilst Make Me A Believer was only just denied on his step-up to Grade 2 company.  Despite a blank day for the team today, weather permitting there is plenty of jumps action taking place during the week ahead and we have some nice entries to look forward to.  Read more...


     Little Red Lion Winner at Chepstow

Little Red Lion loves the mud but it is fair to say it was perhaps a performance full of heart and bravery that got him over the line to win again at Chepstow yesterday.  While the track passed it's morning inspection the ground was very heavy and in fact was the lowest recorded reading on a going stick at any racetrack this season.  Apparently it read 2.5 which is worse than was recorded at Lingfield where they had the previously lowest figure - I am not sure what the figures really mean but it did look hard work watching on the telly!  Little Red Lion returned to hurdles for a confidence booster after falling at Wetherby last time.  He actually jumps fences very well and was a little unlucky last time but it was nice to be able to take advantage of a five pounds lower hurdle rating.  The blinkers were added to help him travel in the early part of the race as he can sometimes be a little lazy but they worked a treat and Fergus gave him a great ride, tackling the leader after the third last and having a sustained battle all the way up the home straight.  A good jump at the last sealed the deal and he was always just doing enough up the run in - he is one that is never going to win by too far which is good from a handicapping point of view!
