Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 16 June 2017

It’s a promising few weeks for Throne Farm with a few talented upcoming runners!!

Faction ran a good race to finish second at Uttoxeter last night, he’s a consistent sort and might run again next week back at Uttoxeter. Nachi Fallls runs tonight at Chepstow and must have a great chance after his decent second at Newcastle last time, he’s a great little horse to have and will go novice chasing eventually as we’ve already schooled him over fences and he was exceptional. Calin du Brizais could run at Uttoxeter next week, he’s in great form and will be going for a hat trick after his impressive win at Newton Abbot last time. Atlantic King could run there as well, we just got to find the key to him, he’s better than he’s showing at the moment.
