This week got off to a fantastic start with Georgina Joy at Hereford on Monday. With our yard conditional jockey Tom Buckley aboard, the pair put on a serious performance leading from start to finish. Georgina Joy jumped fantastically and won the ‘Westons Cider Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle’ by 4 lengths. Not only was this a great success for Tom and Georgina but also for The Nigel Hawke Racing Club, this was the first winner for the club since being formed.


Following on the great success on Monday Lamh Ar Lamh went to Plumpton for the ‘Mare’s Handicap Hurdle’. She was partnered by Sean Bowen who had her brilliantly settled from the off. Having come from the back she rallied on well to finish 2nd only beaten 3 lengths.

Yesterday at Sedgefield Calin Du Brizais ran yet another cracking race to finish 2nd, with his usual partner Kieren Buckley on board the pair where extremely unlucky to only be beaten a neck.

On Monday we have Nachi Falls entered over hurdles and Heart Of Kernow entered over fences at Kempton.
On Tuesday we have Mead Vale and Camron De Chaillac entered at Hereford. This will be Camron De Chaillac’s first run back after his summer break as we have just been waiting for the rain for him.
On Wednesday we have Pearl Royale’s half- sister Sienna Royale entered at Exeter. This will be her first run back after her summer break and we look forward to seeing what she has learnt from her two runs last season. We also have Miss Rocher entered at Exeter who is also coming back after a break and will be running first time over hurdles.

With the ground still being firm our horses due to run this week where non-runners. We are in desperate need of more rain as we have a lot of horses ready to run. We especially would like to see more rain for our yard stable star Speredek as he is entered for the Grade 2 Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter on Tuesday.

On Monday we have Lamh Ar Lamh heading to Plumpton for the mare’s handicap hurdle, she is very well handicapped and has been very unlucky to have not won a race yet. Georgina Joy will be going to Hereford for the Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle. She has had a little break and is also very well handicapped, so we should hopefully see her go well.

We have just the one entry for Tuesday which is Speredek at Exeter but unfortunately, he will unlikely run due to no forecasted rain. He is in great form and we are looking forward to seeing him out soon in his suited conditions.

On Wednesday we have three entered for Chepstow, Lord Ballim who is back over hurdles after giving our yard amateur Kieren Buckley a challenging time last time out at Carlisle. We have Slaying the Dragon entered in the conditional jockey’s handicap hurdle, this will be his first run for the yard since moving from the recently retired Martin Hill. Mr Hill has been very helpful and given us a real insight in to how we could get the best out of this horse. Our last entry for Wednesday is the very talented Heart Of Kernow in a novice handicap chase. This will be his 2nd start over fences following a very unlucky fall last time out.

Lamh ar Lamh – Monday at Plumpton

Georgina Joy – Monday at Hereford

Speredek – Tuesday at Exeter

Lord Ballim – Wednesday at Chepstow

Slaying the Dragon – Wednesday at Chepstow

On Thursday we where at Carlisle with two runners. Lord Ballim finished 4th after giving our yard amateur jockey Kieren Buckley a very challenging time. He jumped very well but pulled extremely hard most of the trip. Tanrudy had his first run for the yard to also finish 4th, he travelled and jumped very well and he will learn a lot from this run.

Yesterday we had Calin Du Brizais running at Cheltenham with his usual partner Kieren Buckley onboard. Calin ran yet another brilliant race and was given a peach of a ride by Kieren.

Today we have Rejaah running at Cheltenham in the ‘Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle Series Qualifier’.

Next week we have Nachi Falls entered at Fakenham and Slaying the Dragon entered at Chepstow. This will be Slaying the Dragon’s first run for the yard.

On Saturday Heart of Kernow started his chasing campaign at Hexham. When 3 from home having jumped and travelled fantastically he was very unlucky to fall. He hadn’t yet been asked for any effort from his jockey Brian Hughes. Thankfully both horse and jockey got up ok and we very much look forward to seeing Heart of Kernow back in action again.

Today we have The Boola Bee and Nachi Falls running at Wincanton. The Boola Bee is having her first run over fences under National Hunt rules having been a point to point winner and will be partnered by Sean Bowen. Nachi Falls is running in a handicap hurdle with our yard conditional jockey Tom Buckley onboard. Nachi Falls was given top weight, but Tom will be taking 10lbs which puts him lower in the weights.

Tomorrow we have Lamh Ar Lamh running at Ffos Las in a handicap hurdle she will have Tom Buckley onboard.
On Tuesday we have 2 entries at Exeter which are Lady Mix and Sin Sin. Thursday we head to Carlisle with Lord Ballim and Tanrudy.


Upcoming Entries

Lamh Ar Lamh – Saturday at Ffos Las

Lady Mix – Tuesday at Exeter
