Ask Himself won for the first time at Warwick on Saturday 8th February ridden by Brendan Powell to continue the good season for Owner Lynne Maclennan. This was a deserved success for ‘Alfie’ who has been second in a bumper and two novice hurdles. Prominent throughout he took up the running turning for home to go on and win by a length and a half, he appreciated the slightly better ground and putting a disappointing effort at Kelso last time firmly behind him. Very much looking forward to going chasing next time.
Upton Road has his first run for us in a novice hurdle at Warwick unfortunately he fell at the 8th when still going well. He is a big horse and was an impressive winner of his point, am sure he has a bright future so hopefully he can get over this and return to action shortly.
Thee were some good runs from The Crazed Moon who was second at Market Rasen on her first start for us for owner Mark Dunphy. Jumping brilliantly form the front before being caught late on. Yorgunnahearmeroar ran well to be third at Huntingdon jumping badly early on before finishing strongly to finish third for the same owner, there will be more to come from here if we can iron out his jumping. Justice knight ran a solid race to be fourth at Doncaster ridden by Richard Patrick, he did his usual by making all, unfortunately they had taken all but three hurdles out due to low sun which didn’t help him. Some Chaos ran up at Musselburgh finishing third in a class 2 novice hurdle on ground that was far too soft, he should be back to his best soon if we can get some decent good ground.
