It was lovely to see Obsessedwithyou getting her head in front for the second time this season, when winning at Hereford on Sunday.  She is only a four year old, and has benefitted from the new NH Junior Novice Hurdle programme.  Having won on her racecourse debut, she was 4th in a listed race, before finishing 2nd under a penalty against her own sex.  However, she defied a penalty here, and I look forward to stepping her up in Grade later on this season.

Obsessedwithyou defies a penalty when winning at Hereford.

We stepped Datsalrightgino up in Grade, and ran him in the Pendil Novice Chase at Kempton last Saturday.  He ran a belter to be 2nd, despite not having the run of the race, and it looked the perfect prep run for the Plate at the Festival, but the handicapper gave us a 4lbs hike for our efforts.  Let's hope we can defy that back on a left handed track, and we know he loves Cheltenham! 

We've not had many other runners lately due to the lack of rain, but I was pleased that Lady Valentine improved to be 2nd at Hereford on Sunday.  It shouldn't be long before she gets her head in front.
