We had a magnificent start to last week…

Midnight Request won a superb race at Exeter on Tuesday, he’s a grand old horse and if things are in his favour, pretty useful too. He was ridden by James Bowen who claimed seven pounds off his back which helped a lot but was very well ridden too, James has been touted as a future champion jockey and on what we’ve seen there’s no reason to think otherwise (sorry Sean). We then had another grand win at Sedgefield with Level Of Intensity who was ridden by Sean Bowen who’s a brother of James as you might have guessed. Sean won decisively and put up a very professional performance considering it was his first run over hurdles, It was also Level Of Intensity’s first run for his new owners and our first runner for them also, so a great result all round. Deauville Crystal was third on the same card and will be winning soon over fences. Take A Break ran a respectable race at Worcester and will surely win again over further. Next week’s entries on Tuesday at Chepstow are Jack In A Box and Ballymagroarty Boy, entered on Thursday at Stratford is Greybougg, On Friday Lady Mix is racing at Uttoxeter and the Saturday Speredek is racing Ascot.

There were two runners at Carlisle yesterday they were Tequila Secret and Sapphire Noire. Tequila Secret ran a great race finishing third in a competitive novice hurdle, she was bought at Doncaster sales in September and could end up being a right bargain judging from yesterday’s performance anyway the dream lives on. Sapphire Noire was disappointing, she didn’t act on the track and all the undulations caught her out. Some horses just don’t like certain courses and can be totally different on other courses, I’m sure that was the problem and we’ll see a different horse next time. It is a potentially busy week next week with entries everywhere and if we keep having rain they could all end up running. Midnight Request and Georgina Joy are entered for Exeter on Tuesday also at Sedgefield we’ve got Ouro Branco ,Deauville Crystal and Level Of Intensity. At Worcester we have Take A Break and Georgina Joy. On Thursday we have Robin Why Not at Southwell and Dharoos at Ludlow. On Saturday Nachi Falls could run or possibly Johanos if we have the rain we are promised .They are all fit and well so we should have a good week.

It was a sad day at Exeter…

On Thursday, Pomme broke down badly and has been retired from racing, the good news is she’s fine and back in her box at the yard. Pomme ran nine times, she won two and was second once, she never achieved her full potential and was very unlucky with injuries. Pomme will make a nice broodmare, she has the size and a decent pedigree. Danny Cook came down and schooled a load of our horses before going to Exeter, It was his first visit to Thorne Farm and he was quietly impressed with our facilities. Danny started his career down in the West Country and has progressed since, he is now one of the top jockeys up north. There are plenty of entries this week, at Carlisle we have Cameron De Chaillac, Tequila Secret and Sapphire Noire, the same day at Uttoxeter the entries are Johanos, Jack In A Box and Georgina Joy. At Lingfield on Wednesday we have Nachi Falls entered on the flat.

We had a super lucky winner at Hexham…

Heart Of Kernow won again at Hexham to keep the 100% record at the northern track, he was a bit lucky but you need luck in this game and he’s going to be a lovely chaser next season. The hard part is resisting the temptation to run him to much this season as we always said we wouldn’t over race him. He’s 17 hands and only a frame of a horse so when he fills out he could be a decent horse. The weekend runners at Uttoxeter are Deauville Crystal and Speronimo. Both Horses are running in the Novice Chase, they both jump well and with all the weight allowances Deauville Crystal has a great chance. Speronimo is a big backward horse who will need the experience. Our other runner is Ouro Branco in the Novice Hurdle, this looks a competitive race but we think a lot of our fella and he’s crying out for a run, whatever happens he’s a horse with a big future.
