1.8.17 - Jack Snipe followed up his recent Worcester win at Newton Abbot yesterday where he landed the 3m2f handicap chase under yard conditional Robert Hawker.
Lucinda Tylor’s homebred eight-year-old was always travelling well when taking the lead from joint favourite Kapgarde King on the final circuit and going on to win by 14 lengths.
It was a great performance, and as long as the ground stays in his favour, we’ll keep going until Christmas.
We have several entered for the rest of the week with Moorlands Jack, Lanta’s Legacy and Guerolla Tactics all in at Stratford on Thursday and Miss Minuty entered in the Kingstone Press Fillies’ Handicap at Bath on Friday.
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.
