1.1.2018 - Happy New Year from us all at Holworthy Farm!
Native Robin landed the LPS Handicap Chase at Warwick yesterday under a super ride from Nick Scholfield. He took up the lead after the last and went away from the field to win by a comfortable two and three quarters of a length. We’ve brought him back very slowly as he had a touch of a leg, and its taken a couple of runs to get him spot on. We’re delighted with how he coped with the heavy ground and hopefully he’s back to where he was before he was injured.
The weather is taking its toll on racing with more storms and heavy rain forecast. Hopefully the reprieve forecast for this weekend rings true.
Tomorrow Ellen’s Way is declared to run in the 1871 Mares’ Handicap at Ludlow where Jack Snipe will run in the ROA/Racing Post Owners Jackpot Excellence Hands and Heels Handicap Chase.
Ellen’s Way scored a lovely win at Fontwell on Saturday and she carries a 7lb penalty for that success. We’re hopeful of another decent performance.
Jack Snipe unseated last time at Plumpton when holding the advantage at the time and we’re hopeful of a clear round this time.
