Another solid run from Catchthemoonlight who seemed to stay the two and a half mile trip but was caught a little flat-footed after the last. She has been a star for her owners, Dig In Racing, being in the first three in all six of her completed runs this season and with the option of two to two and a half miles she should have plenty more opportunities coming up.
There is one share left…
The travelling was made worthwhile by two wins from novice chasers Revocation and Moorstown and Final Assault and Imjoeking running blinders at Newbury.
Revocation has had a couple of issues in his racing life, including a facial fracture when falling at Newcastle two years ago, however, his talent and enthusiasm is undiminished and while occasionally green he jumped and travelled brilliantly…
A blunder and unseat from Misfits at the second fence at Doncaster was not the perfect start to the weekend, but things should get better.
We have two horses at each of three meetings and the team are looking forward to tomorrow's racing.
At Newcastle Revocation has been waiting for soft ground to run and the galloping left handed track should suit him. Later Clondaw Knight makes…
Frosty again this morning and a delight to be out on the gallops with some bright sunshine disguising the sub-zero temperatures. The horses are in bouncing form with lots of sharp moves and shying all over the place (mostly at the sheep who roam free range round Kilduff). The photograph shows Catchthemoonlight (Harry) leading Marcus Antonius (Jamie) and Moorstown (Ailsa) up the gallops at second…
Tap Night looked to have a glimmer of a return to form when second at Wetherby this afternoon. On and off the bridle, Blair did a good job of encouraging him to stay on and he finished with a rattle. Though well beaten he has been enjoying his work at home and we hope that he can build on this run.
Back To Bracka was also looking more enthusiastic until a shuddering blunder three out which…
The ground was soft and tiring at Uttoxeter and Mumgos Debut did not stay the extended trip despite travelling well in to the race. He is a much more sensible horse now and can be settled in behind the leaders, so it was sad that he did not get the extra distance. However, his two wins and today's second are a credit to the team here who have kept Mumgos fresh to run so often in the past month:…
It was heavy going at Haydock after 100mms of rain and sleet and Voyage A New York, pictured, ran with a bit more promise despite not staying the extended trip. His comeback run had been miserable but today he travelled and jumped really well up to three miles. He will drop back in trip next time.
Yesterday Island Heights looked happy in front but he did not let down in the final few furlongs,…
