Caderyn gave us our second winner in January by winning the ‘Read Noel Fehily At 188Bet Novices Hurdle’,ridden by Tom Scu and owned by John & Judith Murray and Angus & Lynne Maclennan. Caderyn has won a point to point in Ireland, he won a good bumper at chepstow last season and had run very well to be fourth over to short a trip over hurdles at Chepstow at the beginning of January. The form of that race has worked out well, and we were confident that the step up to 2m6f from 2m3f would be a massive plus for him. So it proved leading form the front all the way he jumped superbly until the last two hurdles were he was just probably idling having been in front a long time, this allowed runner up Bob Mahler to get within a neck of him at the finish but he was always holding on. The future for Caderyn is very exciting and i cant wait to see him over a fence next season and stepped up even further in trip, but for now we will look to keep him over hurdles this season and could look for a similar novice hurdle next but with some nice targets for next season very much in mind.
Bella and Caderyn at the owners day.
