11.11.17 - Melodic Rendezvous has been retired following his defeat in the Unibet Elite Hurdle at Wincanton. He won eight of his 31 starts amassing £270,953 in prize money with his biggest success at Sandown in 2013 where he won the Grade 1 Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle.
He always ran above his ability because he was so tough and when he won the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle at the start of 2013 he was brillian. That kickstarted a sequence that included success in the Grade 2 Elite Hurdle, a race that brought the curtain down on his career on Saturday after he trailed in a distant last of the seven runners behind London Prize.
He was a fun horse who took us to a lot of exciting places and he has finished sound and hopefully will have a nice happy retirement with Paul Govier, one of his owners who lives near us.
11.11.2017 - Three run at Wincanton today. Melodic Rendezvous is in the Unibet Elite Hurdle, a race he won in 2013, Ellens Way goes in the Z Hotels Mares' Handicap Hurdle and Diminpete is in the bumper.
31.10.17 - We have two runners today at Chepstow. Urtheonethatiwant has his racecourse debut in the Join Rogues gallery Racing Club Maiden Hurdle with Matt Griffiths in the saddle. He’s sure to benefit from the experience.
Vicki Wade rides Bonza Girl in the Read Noel Fehily at 188Bet bumper. She’s a half sister to Lanta’s Legacy out of Purple Patch who won a couple of times over hurdles and two point-to-points.
23.10.17 - Guerilla Tactics’ point-to-point experience held him in good stead in the 3m1f Racing UK HD on Sky 432 Novices’ Handiap Chase at Wincanton on Friday where he came home the 11/4f winner in the hands of Nick Scholfield. He raced off 3lb lower than his hurdles mark and we’ll mix and match it over the winter.
Notarfbad was second in the Weses Waste Dispoasal Handicap Chase jumping beautifully in front in the hands of Matt Griffiths, and only giving way to a better handicapped rival.
Tomorrow we have four runners at Exeter. Lady Longshot goes in the Read Noel Fehily at 188Bet Amateur Riders’ Handicap Hurdle with Vicki Wade in the saddle.
Shoofly Milly and Billy Two Tongues are in the Ilfracombe Food Service Handicap Hurdle and Gonnabegood goes in the Bet £10 Get £20 At 188Bet Handicap Hurdle.
The first mentioned has plenty of stamina and made all when winning over course and distance in march, but she’s been beaten since and is 3lb worse off that Waterloo Warrior for beating him one and a half lengths. Billy Two Tongues is back over hurdles for the first time in 15 months.
