Zulu Oscar goes in the Grade 3 Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle today following his eye catching success at Chepstow on his debut for the yard. He goes to Haydock in good heart and Matt Griffiths rides.
Robert Hawker is on board Day Of Roses in the Listers Skoda Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Chase at Warwick, his second start over fences following his debut at Exeter in March where he will have gained from the experience.
Diminpete makes his debut in the bumper with Nick Scholfield in the saddle.
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.
16.4.17 - Newton Abbot's season got underway on Saturday after a delayed start with the first fixture waterlooged, and it was great to saddle a winner with Moorlands Jack winning the Happy Birthday Eddie Rice Handicap Chase in good style.
Nick Scholfield was onboard Jack who was having his first outing since December and won by three quarters of a length from David Bass on Irish Thistle. A change of head gear and the fact that he's a fresh horse both went in his favour, and we hope he can pick up a similar race in due course.
Today we are at Exeter for the first of its three evening fixtures where Island Rendezvous, the outsider of three, runs in the opening 188Bet.co.uk Novices' Hurdle.
Popping Along heads to Ludlow for the Team Whatever Welcomes Sergio Cordoso To The World Handicap Hurdle with Matt Griffiths in the saddle. She's back on the same mark of her Aintree win a year ago and has a respectable chance.
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
