With Tea Caddy and Dark Lover winning last week, I am pleased to say that the horses are appear to be in great form and are running well. Midnight Silver continued her love affair with Ffos Las when winning over hurdles for the first time and following up her bumper win at the same track. She jumped superbly under Michael Nolan, and won pretty cosily in the end. She might be the type for the Listed National Hunt EBF Mares final at Newbury in early April.
Midnight Silver wins over hurdles at Ffos Las to add to her 2 bumper wins - one tough mare.
Unfortunately we didn’t manage an across the card double yesterday as things didn’t go Miss Tiger Lily’s way. She won her novice over 2m4 on good ground, but found 2m3 on soft ground wasn’t too her liking. We’ll look to step her up in trip now, and ride her a bit more conservatively, on better ground.
We should have a few runners out this week. I’m looking forward to seeing Wildehearted Women run at Wetherby tomorrow. She travelled well on her debut, but just didn’t get home, but we’ve given her a small wind op since and she should be seen in better light tomorrow with a tongue tie on too. Later in the week, I hope Ebadani will have a decent chance on some better ground, and I’d like to think Baraymi will improve on his excellent 2nd the last day at Wetherby.
We have just begun to do some quicker work with some of our bumper horses who should be out on the track in the spring. We had them out on the grass on Saturday – some that have impressed me include Midnight Chill, Born Naughty and Naranja. There are still some shares left available in Midnight Chill, who is from the family of the Gold Cup and Grand National runner up, Dubacilla. He is a magnificent physical specimen who looks a proper horse to go to war with, he should be ready to run and hopefully win his bumper in the spring! Do contact me if you would be interested in taking a share of him.
Midnight Chill is developing into a smashing horse and there are still some shares available in him....
