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

Sin Sin- Tuesday at Exeter

Tanrudy – Thursday at Carlisle

Lord Ballim – Thursday at Carlisle

Last Friday we travelled to Hexham racecourse with Mead Vale, Lady Mix and Lamh Ar Lamh. Mead Vale ran an absolute blinder finishing 2nd in a competitive Novices hurdle. He was given a brilliant ride by Danny Cook to only be beaten 2 and 3/4 lengths by a horse rated 132.

Mead Vale 

Lady Mix went on to run a great race to finish 2nd under our yard conditional Tom Buckley. The pair were very unlucky to be beaten a length and a half by the champion jockey riding one for Gordon Elliott. Lamh Ar Lamh was also partnered by Tom Buckley to finish 5th with only 8 lengths between her and 1st place. She settled brilliantly and stayed on until the line.

We have an exciting weekend ahead of us with Heart Of Kernow making an appearance at Hexham on Saturday to start his chasing campaign. He has had 2 runs around Hexham already and both have been wins. Hopefully he can carry on his winning ways and make it a hat- rick.

Heart Of Kernow – Saturday at Hexham

This week we have been relatively busy with runners. On Sunday Take A Break finished 2nd at Worcester in the ‘Local Parking Security Selling Hurdle’. He was partnered by our yard conditional jockey Tom Buckley who gave him a brilliant ride and was very unlucky to be beaten 3/4 of a length.

As well as being busy racing, at home on the yard has been as well. On Wednesday our three year olds took to the schooling ring and schooled over their first lot of hurdles. It was a great success and everyone of them showed a lot of promise and ability.

Today we have Mead Vale, Lamh Ar Lamh and Lady Mix running at Hexham. Danny Cook takes the ride on Mead vale and Tom Buckley takes the ride on both Lamh Ar Lamh and Lady Mix.

 


Upcoming Entries

 

Sin Sin– Wednesday at Ludlow

Nachi Falls– Thursday at Exeter
