Our weekend round up ‘Samingarry’ ran a absolute blinder finishing 3rd at Newbury on Saturday beaten only 2 lengths with A P McCoy on board, he has come out of his race really well, his owners the Pearce Bros and Derek Mead were delighted with the result and in A P words ‘there is a big pot to be won with him next season.’
‘Le Pergolese’ who was quite heavily backed on his handicap chase debut travelled well though out the race, jumped well enough , just finding the trip to far, he will now be dropped back in trip and hopefully get off the mark.
The 12yr old ‘Mister Wiseman’ who has won 7 races is starting to show signs that he is falling out of love with racing, he may have one more run and then take stock and decide on his future. He has been a great servant to the yard it will be a sad day when he retires.
We have three runners at Chepstow Racecourse tomorrow, ‘Greybougg’ who has finished mid division in his two bumpers runs in the ‘2.30 32red welcomes microgaming players ‘national hunt’ maiden hurdle 2m’ to be honest this horse has been disappointing on the track whilst he works exceptionally well at home, he has been schooling well but handicaps may be more his game.
In the 3.00 ‘ play immortal romance at 32red handicap chase 2m’ Tokyo Javilex takes his chance, he won last time out at Sedgefield Racecourse under a excellent ride by Jason maguire who we hope gets well soon, this horse is improving all the time and has been schooling and working well and in what is a small field we expect him to do the business.
In the ’32red microgaming casino maiden national hunt flat race 2m’ we run ‘The Unnamed Soldier’ who was 2nd here on debut over course and distance, this is a great big strapping horse who is improving all the time and 3 mile chasing will ultimately be his game. He has improved since his last run, if he runs the same sort of race he should be there abouts.
All three horses at Chepstow tomorrow will be ridden by Sam Twiston-Davies which is a huge advantage to us as he is an exceptional rider and provides us with good feedback and he wants to win just as much as we do.
