Snipe flies in

11.7.17 - 

Our yard conditional Robert Hawker landed the Friends of Yew Tree Handicap Chase at Worcester yesterday riding Lucinda Tylor’s home bred Jack Snipe.

It was a slight step back in trip for Jack who had finished second over three miles one and a half furlongs at Fontwell in June. The ground had eased to good, good to soft in place after a heavy shower of rain, but this did little to deter Jack’s confidence and he jumped impeccably throughout  to win by a length and a quarter at 10/1.

He’s by Kirkwall out of Ben and Sally Messer-Bennetts Sea Snipe who was trained so successfully by Becky Kennen on Bodmin Moor, winning the Horse and Hound Cup for the country’s leading point to pointer in 2007.
