24.4.17 - Best Boy Barney ran a super race to finish second at Wincanton in the Best Odds Guaranteed at 188Bet Handicap Chase finishing well clear of the field.
We were also pleased with Jack Snipe who ran well to finish third at Stratford in the three mile three and a half furlong chase having been lumped with a 12lb rise following his Taunton win. He travelled really well for much of the way, but just couldn’t find any extra when push came to shove in the closing stages. We’ll find another opportunity for him soon. Shoofly Milly may have found the ground too quick in the three mile two furlongs handicap hurdle.
Today Speedalong, who showed improvement on his last run at Taunton in March, goes in the two miles five furlongs maiden hurdle with Nick Scholfield in the saddle.
