Stay up to date with the latest news from Jeremy Scott Racing
A busy week for us starting at Hereford and Plumpton, Stormy Flight is going the right way over hurdles, he is learning with every run and will find his level once handicapping. Two Sams made a successful debut for Team Scott at Plumpton, he needed to prove himself, he was on a lowly mark which he took advantage of under a great ride from Nick.
Kissesforkatie ran well at Exeter to finish fourth in a good novice hurdle against the boys, she set the standard in the race. Ballybough Nora ran on well at the end of the race. The star of the day was Orchardstown Cross winning the Staying Challenger Series Qualifier under a terrific ride from Rex Dingle.
Dashel Drasher made an exciting chasing debut at Newbury, finishing second to Champ. He had only schooled at home and at Phillip Hobbs' and he led the field and looked to have even Champ under the pump for a few strides. He is an exciting youngster to look forward to running in some of the decent novice chases this winter!
Fantasia Storm ran well on her debut at Fontwell, she is only four and will be stronger next season. Tactical Manoeuvre ran well on his debut fr the yard to finish 3rd.
Native Robin is a victim of his own cnsistency and finished second at Wincanton in the Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Chase, he is a great fun horse for his owners, The Punchestown Syndicate. According to the commentator, Sizeable Sam was the best named horse on the day at Wincanton, he is a big, scopey youngster who has a stride which eats up the ground. He was one we were very excited about running to see if he could replicate what he shows on the gallops. He ran a brilliant race for his debut, beaten only a short head having shown a little greeness on the run in. He ran in Camilla's colours and is for sale, Nick gave him a brilliant ride, he is one to look forward to the future.

Champagne Court was the second of our novice chasers to make a fantastic debut over the larger obstacles, he had run well in top class handicap hurdles over the past year. He is a chaser in the making and this was a fantastic chasing debut, winning by 6 lengths!
We had a busy day at Wincanton last weekend, 5 runners kept Georgina and Laura busy. Demon Fou struggled with the pace early on but ran on well to finish fourth, he was up in the weights a huge amount for his win last time. Kilcara travelled and jumped well and despite being well beaten, finished a good second to a horse who is clearly on the improve. Clondaw Dancer did all the hard work out in front, jumping and travelled well throughout the race, he was not beaten too far and it was a good first run over hurdles. Blazing Saddles was unlucky to be almost carried out on the stablees band by the loose horse on the first cuircuit, he lost his place in the race and struggled to get back on terms after that however he ran on well at the end of the race and we be one to find his level once he is handicapping. Greenview Paradise has taken well to hurdling and despite her small stature, she should find a race at her level now she has a handicap mark. Nifity At Fifty is not the most straightforward horse and it was definitely an off day on Tuesday at Chepstow.
Tikkinthebox runs at Huntingdon this afternoon, he won well at Warwick in September, when he was the best horse in the race, he struggled next time out when back over hurdles, he is back over fences this afternoon having gone up in the weights. Stormy Flight runs in the NH Auction Maiden Hurdle at Hereford tomorrow, he ran well on his debut on soft ground at Stratford, these races are a great idea to find options for horses to race against horses who were bought for a similar price rather than having to compete against some which cost over £100,000. Two Sams runs at Plumpton, he is making his debut for us, having previously been trained by Michael Blake. He could be well handicapped if he reverted back to his novice hurdle run at Taunton.
We could have a busy day at Exeter Racecourse on Haldon Gold Cup day with a few entered including Orchardstown Cross. Dashel Drasher is entered up at Newbury to make his chasing debut, it looks a decent beginners chase with the likes of Champ, Birchdale, Beakstown and Vision Des Flos entered!
A damp and blustery start meant an enjoyable morning watching England beat the All Blacks with Matt and Abbey James. England are now in the final next weekend and hopefully it is a repeat of 2003!
I was lucky enough to spend yesterday evening after racing at Cheltenham watching Bath verses Exeter Chiefs at Bath, a weekend of Rugby!
Five runners at Wincanton tomorrow and one at Aintree, after a quiet week. Guerrilla Tactics ran well at Kempton to finish third. Sienna Royal was not beaten far when hampered on the run in at Exeter by a loose horse, she finished second to a well handicapped horse. Espallion ran well on his seasonal debut, he was stepping up in trip and class after going up 10lbs for his last run. Garrane jumped and travelled well at Cheltenham, there are races to be won with him.
After a long summer, our Winter horses are just beginning to get going, Kissesforkatie ran a good race at Chepstow on her second start over hurdles, we will aim to get her qualified for the EBF Mares' Novice Hurdle Finale at Newbury in March and run her in some of the better Mares' Novices' this season. Champagne Court will go chasing after a fantastic second in the Silver Trophy at Chepstow, he has gone up 5lbs for that run and is an exciting young horse this season.
We had a busy day at Wincanton with four runners at one of our local tracks, Greenview Paradise ran well on her second start over hurdles, she needs one more run to get a handicap mark and then we will go from there. Seeanythingyoulike ran another good race to finish third, he should be winning a race soon. Keltus ran in his first proper race for over three years and he was a little ring rusty having run in hunter chases and the military races. He will come on massively for the run and wasn't beaten far in fourth. Demon Fou rounded off the day with a fantastic win in a competitive handicap hurdle. He won a novice hurdle last season and had been running well in handicaps. Matt gave him a great ride to win for the Friends From Insurance.
Stormy Flight ran well on hs debut at Stratford yesterday, the ground was Soft and he just got tired up the home straight. He will have learnt alot as that was only his second start on a racecourse. Native Robin is ultra consistent and probably too consistant for his own good, as he can never great a break from the handicapper. He finished another good second in a competitive handicap chase.
