Trio of Winners

    Ramses De Teille Winner at Chepstow

I wrote last week’s offering on route to London for the Horse Writer’s Awards.  Gerry Supple and I had a very enjoyable afternoon as guests of Mike Vince and there were some very worthy winners. Our runners at Plumpton that day also kicked off what has been a good week for the stable. Dusky Hercules has improved with each of his three career starts and made an encouraging debut over hurdles to finish fourth. The penny is slowly dropping and he has shown enough that he is capable of winning races. Duc De Beauchene bounced back from a disappointing effort last time to finish a staying on fourth.  It was then great to be able to toast a winner from London. Eden Du Houx had won his sole start in an Irish point to point and put in a nice performance to win the bumper under Tom Scu.  He had been pleasing me at home and it was nice to see him do it on the track. I won this bumper a few years ago with Kings Palace and although a different type of horse I hope this horse has a very bright future also.  Read more...

There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon with both fixtures coming over the sticks at Carlisle and Southwell.  David has two runners today at Southwell courtesy of Umbrigado and Great Tempo.  Umbrigado contests the 1m7½f maiden hurdle at 1.10pm.  Our four year old looked like a very smart prospect when running out a ready winner of a Uttoxeter bumper on his first start for the stable.  We know he can jump having finished runner-up in an Irish point-to-point and he has schooled well at home ahead of this hurdling debut.  A big run is expected under Tom Scudamore.  Our other runner is Great Tempo in the 2m4½f amateur riders' handicap hurdle at 3.20pm.  He has finished placed a couple of times this season and I reckon that David has found a decent opportunity for him under promising amateur Fergus Gillard who takes a handy 7lbs off his back.
