Remastered Runs at Sandown Today!

Today we just have the one runner, Remastered at Sandown.  He runs in the 2.55pm handicap hurdle with David Noonan on board.  This is a jockey change from your papers as unfortunately Tom Scu will not be riding for a few days after an incident at Chepstow yesterday.  Tom was on board Royal Defender in the bumper and was in third place and running okay at the time when the horse just in front of him fell to the ground as they went through the wings of what would be the last hurdle.  Unfortunately we were left with nowhere to go and despite trying to dodge the horse on the ground Tom and our horse were brought down.  Thankfully both Evan Williams’ horse and ours are both okay.  Jockey Adam Wedge was okay but Tom Scu took a bang to the head and didn’t really know whether he was in Cork or York!  He was taken to Hereford hospital for scans which were thankfully all clear but he has been stood down from riding for a few days.

Pachacuti Wins Fakenham!

It was great to get our 58th winner of the season yesterday thanks to Pachacuti winning for the first time over hurdles at Fakenham.  On this sharper track Tom Scu rode him positively and he and the eventual runner up drew well clear of the rest from two out.  The race looked in the balance as they rounded the turn from home but our six year old is an out and out galloper who extended away again from the last.  He has taken a little time to get the hang of things but he is a lovely big horse who will make a lovely staying chaser in the future.  It was great for his owners, John, Anne and Sarah who have been big supporters of our yard for many years and these colours have been carried to victory by some very good horses in the past, including Tamarinbleu who is still enjoying his retirement aged 23 just down the road with Dynaste et al!

       Heure De Gloire Wins Leicester

It was great to get a nice winner at Leicester yesterday with Heure De Gloire under Tom Scu. It was a deserved first success of the season for our mare who has been very consistent and has been placed several times but just not been able to get her head in front thus far.  Tom gave her a nice front running ride and she quickened clear from the rest from two out.  She won quite cosily in the end but hopefully the handicapper won’t overreact.  She is a strong stayer over two miles and the heavier the ground the better.  It was lovely for her owner Jane Cunningham who sadly lost her son last year.

First Lord De Cuet runs at Exeter today!

Today there are three jumps meetings at Ayr, Exeter and Leicester and while we don’t make the trip to Scotland, we are represented at both of the other jumps meetings.  We have three runners at Leicester, American Sniper, Texard and Heure De Gloire and four runners at Exeter, Kingofthewest, First Lord Du Cuet, Itacare and Astigar.  Tom Scu rides all three of our runners at Leicester and American Sniper runs in the 2.35pm EBF novices hurdle at 2.35pm.  He has been a model of consistency this season and has already won two novices hurdles and he ran a cracker in his first go in a handicap at Taunton last time to be second.  He shoulders a double penalty for his wins but I think he will enjoy the more galloping track today and if the ratings of the horses are all correct then he should win or go very close.

Only The Bold Wins Hereford 

It was great to get winner number 56 of the season yesterday at Hereford courtesy of Only The Bold winning the staying handicap chase. Fergus Gillard was once again on board, the pair having won on chasing and stable at Bangor 65 days earlier. He travelled and jumped well throughout in midfield before coming through to lead at the second last and going away to score quite cosily in the end. He won this off a mark of 126 and will be due another rise in the weights but I think there is more to come from him as he is pretty lightly raced, he is a strong stayer and has a very willing attitude. There were plenty of members of the Value Racing Club who own him in attendance and it was a lovely win for all concerned.

Barrier Peaks After his Win at Uttoxeter 

Today we have four runners across two meetings with Sidi Ismael running at Plumpton and the trio of Red Happy, Jilaijone and Only The Bold running at Hereford. In race time order, Red Happy is our first runner of the day in the 2m5f novices hurdle at 1.15pm. We have freshened him up since his last start at Plumpton four weeks ago and hopefully this will be a confidence boosting run for our six year old. His form figures don’t look great on paper of late but there is more behind these than meets the eye and he remains a lovely horse that if running to his best will not be too far away. He won a hurdle race at Southwell a little earlier in the season and this represents the easiest opportunity he has contested of late. He is about 13/2 in the betting and Tom Scu rides.

Panic Attack at Huntingdon 

Today we have two runners at Cheltenham and three at Uttoxeter.  Panic Attack and Sizing Pottsie run at Prestbury Park while Royal Mer, Via Dante and Barrier Peaks are our trio of runners at Uttoxeter.  Panic Attack runs in the 12.10pm novices handicap chase with Tom Scu on board.  She won nicely on chasing debut at Huntingdon two starts back and arguably ran her best race to date at Kempton last time over Christmas.  She is a lovely big mare you has taken to chasing well and I think there is more improvement to come.  She has won at Cheltenham before over hurdles and races today off a mark of 130.  It looks a hot race but I think she has a cracking each way chance at about 11/1.
