Nice to get a winner on board with Tayzar at Warwick and particularly pleasing to see him follow up at Sedgefield last week as well. Theo Gilard seems to get on well with him and whilst we have some good ground about we will take our chance; hence his entry at Fakenham on Friday.
The horses seem well in themselves at present and I was pleased with all three runners at Hexham. Flint Hill gave Cillin Leonard a torrid time but had great fun himself in the novice hurdle. I didn’t expect him to win but thought he ran with credit and showed a lovely attitude to run to the line. He seems a very versatile horse who will give someone a lot of fun as an owner. Black Ebony travelled strongly and jumped well as well and just ran into one. He will come on for the run mentally perhaps more then physically/fitness wise and he will be out again soon. Mauritian Bolt is a cracking little horse and he ran a lovely race despite been green. The winner was well tuned up and had previous experience in the point to point field but “Usain” did well to come from the back and stay on so well to be second. He is for sale!
There will be a couple more runners this week with Double W’s taking his chance at Wetherby (ground permitting) and Tayzar again at the end of the week. Clondaw Caitlin will not be heading to Wetherby as I felt the ground may just be quick enough for her over the trip.
