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.
15.6.17 - Robert Hawker rides Jack Snipe at Fontwell today in the Shoreham Port Handicap Chase (For The Alan Arnell Memorial Trophy). He won a novices’ handicap chase at Taunton in December, staying on strongly to win by eight lengths over the marathon three miles two and a half furlongs trip. His next outing was at Stratford in April over a furlong further where he finished third.
He’s in good order, stepping back to three miles one and a half furlongs with Robert’s seven pound a bonus.
07.06.17 - Day of Roses was the easy winner of the 3m1f novices' handicap chase at Fontwell Park yesterday under Nick Scholfield scoring his second success in nine days.
06.06.17 - Day of Roses heads back to Fontwell this evening for the Book Your Christmas Party at Fontwell Park Novices' Handicap Chase with Nick Scholfield in the saddle. He carries a penatly for his course and distance win last week, and if he arrives in the same sort of form, he ought to go well again (although that old adage always back the outsider of three springs to mind!)
We were very pleased with Seeanythingyoulike at Newton Abbot last week after he finished third in the 0-100 two mile two and a half furlong handicap hurdle. He continues to go the right way and ought to win soon.
