Racing & Bloodstock

Tomorrow we head to Carlisle with just the one runner from three entries! Fetch It Yourself, a homebred Mount Nelson filly out of Retrieve The Stick makes her racecourse debut in the bumper. Bumpers are always hard to weigh up with various form on offer as well as no form and only pedigrees to give an indication of ability! There’s horses to like in it and this family doesn’t throw up many bumper winners but she is a nice, big mare with a lot of scope. Generally well balanced I would expect her to handle the track and being only four and a filly she runs off a light weight.

Fetch It Yourself

We were delighted with Thermusa at Sedgefield as despite looking like she had never ran before or seen many hurdles she won going away and with plenty in hand. She is dynamite over hurdles at home so i’m not sure why she was careful at the races but she will improve with time. She will most likely go back to Sedgefield for another mare’s novice hurdle next month. Switch Partner had to make the running as well and looked happy enough out in front. I was pleased with her jumping as Callum and I (to a lesser extent – I watch) have done a lot of work to get her to make a better shape. She now has a handicap mark and will probably step up in trip next time.
