Racing & Bloodstock

It was great for Flint Hill to get his head in front at Pontefract yesterday after a couple of near misses at the track this summer. He loves Pontefract as he isn’t the quickest and just keeps going! I do not think Paul (Hanagan) got the credit he deserved after finishing second on him last time under a great ride and I think Flint was full of confidence going into it yesterday. Graham (Lee) always has first refusal on the ride as he has won on him and it was their third win together in two seasons.

We have two runners tomorrow at Sedgefield. I’m not sure how much rain either of them will want but both will take their chance for different reasons. Switch Partner was supposed to go to Sedgefield’s last meeting but knocked a joint. She is in great form at home and worked beautifully last week. We have worked on her jumping as much as we can and hopefully she will show an improvement on her last runs. Either way she will qualify for a handicap mark. Callum Bewley rides. Thermusa cost a lot after winning her only point to point – as most winning point to pointers do! She is laid back in her work but a very enthusiastic jumper and seems fairly straight. Being by Kayf Tara out of a Presenting mare she may or may not handle softer going but she is a big mare with large enough feet that you would hope she is versatile regarding ground.
