Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 30 September 2016
Nachi Falls put up a very impressive performance giving weight away all round and putting up his best show to date in the Premier League Betting At 188bet Juvenile Hurdle (Class 2) (3YO only) ridden by Tom Bellamy. He travelled really well and jumped like an old handicapper and seems to be improving with every run. He might have one more run before going for the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial* at Cheltenham on 13 November.
We have a new addition to the yard called Rock Of Leon which we bought out of a seller in Worcester last Friday. He’s rated 120 over hurdles and is only a five year old . He’s a lovely sort and is sure to win again, he could be a bargain!
We’ve got three possible runners at Fontwell on Saturday Tokyo Javilex and Acadian both run in the three mile handicap hurdle a race Tokyo won last year and Bar a Vilorbaine could run in the novice hurdle.
