Nachi Falls Impresses Again!!

Nachi falls ran another great race on Wednesday, he was very fast finishing second after having to make his own running which is not ideal, he got headed and fought back really well. He really is a remarkable little horse who doesn’t know how to run a bad race. Dharoos on the other hand was a little bit disappointing and could only finish fifth after having a bad run all through the race, he eventually got out and ran well up the straight. He’s better than that and might run again on the flat. There are no runners at the weekend but we’ve got some entries next week at Worcester. Robin Why Not is in the hands and heels hurdle, he ran disappointing last season but works well at home, he has got to be better than his bare form. Georgina Joy is having her first run and will need the experience. Heart Of Kernow and Take A Break are in Hexham on Thursday and could run if the ground is safe. We bought three horses at the Doncaster Sales on Wednesday, one is a half-brother to Big Orange, he is called Stormy Blues and was second in a maiden at Nottingham, he really looks the part. We also bought a horse with a big name called Mutoondresdashorse, a nice Colt who is a winner of a maiden this season at Newbury, we’ll have him gelded and take it from there. The third one is a nice mare by Kayf Tara called Tequila Secret, she is owned by Mr Steve Winfield and was placed in a bumper at Southwell and has a lovely pedigree.
