Entries & Recent Form

With only a handful of fixtures, last week was a quiet one for the stable with two runners; Midnight Magic and Stubborn Logic participating over the weekend.  There is more jumping action to look forward to this week and although our first runner won’t come until Thursday at Perth, we have considerably more entries from Friday onward.

It was good to be amongst the winners again last week, especially as we only had limited opportunities.  Indeed, with the current racing calendar most accurately described as patchy at best as far as jump racing is concerned, that trend is likely to continue into this week as well.  With only a midweek National Hunt meeting from Kelso before the weekend action, it is going to be a quiet start.

I am pleased to report that the good form of the stable continued last week with the successes of Story Of Friends and Mrs Miggins bringing our seasonal tally to six.  Obviously owing to the delay of the season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the racing calendar is looking very different to how it might have done otherwise.  Even so, the days are becoming more filled and the first jumps card at Chepstow (which I always consider to be the start of the core part of the National Hunt season) closes in the next few weeks – how time flies!

We were among the winners again last week with Miss M (pictured above) producing another great display to score at Southwell last Monday.  On only her second start over hurdles, she jumped with aplomb apart from a slight mistake two from home, but I was especially impressed with the manner in which she quickened between the final two flights when Tom Scudamore asked her to go.  She picked up in really good style, quickly putting distance between herself and her rivals to score by a decisive eight lengths.

We were unable to improve our tally last week, hitting the crossbar on a number of occasions although we have already put that small matter right with success at Southwell today.  Whilst frustrating to reach the frame, at least the horses are in good order and hopefully we will be able to convert a few more of those 2’s into 1’s.

Last week was a good one for the stable with us back among the winners courtesy of successes over hurdles with Miss M and on the flat with the admirable Leoncavallo.  Meanwhile, there is another exciting addition from the flat in France that is looking for an owner.

I was pleasantly surprised to be back among the winners last week courtesy of Malangen’s Southwell success on Tuesday.  He had a bit to find at the weights but ran out a cosy winner in the end at the rewarding odds of 12/1.  Meanwhile, with another promising new arrival from France to look forward to in the near future, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic for the core part of the jumps season ahead.

Whilst last week was a quiet one for the stable with just one runner over hurdles and a couple on the level, this week promises to be considerably busier with more National Hunt fixtures taking place despite today being a blank for fans of the jumps.

I was thrilled to get off the mark for the new season at Stratford last week.  Leoncavallo’s first chase success was certainly the highlight of the week, although there were several other noteworthy performances to look back upon too.  Meanwhile, we welcomed a new arrival from the Arqana Sales who I hope you will be hearing more about in the coming weeks.

Although there were only a couple of racecourse runners last week, there was still plenty to keep us occupied.  The horses continue to come back in from their summer holidays, whilst we are always on the lookout for new talent.  With plenty of racing overseas and more sales taking place there are an increasing number of opportunities to do just that.
