Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 27 November 2017

All of our horses ran very well this week despite not having any winners,

Deauville Crystal ran her heart out again at Ascot on Saturday, she’s only four years old and she’s nearly seventeen hands so there’s a lot more to come. she’ll probably go back over hurdles now and stay a novice over fences for next year when she should be a hard one to beat. Speredek ran at Ascot on Friday and even though he lost his winning streak he ran a blinder to finish in second. He’s a smashing horse and I’m sure there’s a big race in him to come, he could also alternate between hurdles and fences as he’s very versatile and he’s only six years old. Next week we have entries on Tuesday at Lingfield with Point N Shoot and Speronimo in the Novice Handicap Chase. On Thursday we have Georgina Joy at Towcester and Take A Break at Taunton. Greybougg could be entered at Newbury on Saturday, he loves the track and he ran well there last time before unseating his rider at the last. It’s a very competitive time of the year with all these expensive horses appearing at seemingly every meeting but we’ve got a few up our sleeve and shall hopefully continue our good start through to the second half of the season.
