09.04.17 - Zulu Oscar landed the two mile handicap hurdle under Matt Griffiths at Chepstow yesterday, on his first start since joining us six weeks ago.
Despite his weight burden of 12-5 he won very well and could make a quick reappearance on Tuesday at Exeter.
We think he might have been bleeding so we treated him for that, and purposely kept him away from other horses at the start, sending him down early, and it seems to have had the desired effect. He looks to have bounced back to something like his best of two years ago, and its always particularly pleasing when horses find their form again.
We have three entries at Exeter on Tuesday:
Zulu Oscar – City of Exeter Challenge Cup Handicap Hurdle
Gonnabegood and That’s Gonna Sting – Finlake Holiday Resort Handicap Hurdle
