Racing & Bloodstock

We have had a few runners in the last few days. Cyrus Keep pulled up and it looks likely he needs his pallet re-firing. However, given his age, rating and current form I have decided instead to retire him from racing and he will be sold as a riding horse. He would make a cracking ROR horse. Silver Coin ran better without troubling a very easy winner and she should improve again. She looks like she needs a handicap to be seen at her best. Flint Hill ran a cracker and looks back to his best. He gave 11lb to the winner and was beaten a neck. He will head to York next and then back to Pontefract.

Flint Hill at Pontefract last year.

Switch Partner ran a better race than she had in a long time despite looking green at times and a sloppy jump at the last cost her momentum towards the end of the race. Lemon T probably ran back too soon but he is another heading into retirement. Mauritian Bolt jumped and travelled better in cheekpieces but his best trip remains a mystery!
