      Koi Dodville Wins Again at Aintree

Koi Dodville made it two wins from two starts for the yard over hurdles within a week by winning at Aintree last night.  Although favourite and he won as he should, as I have said before they have still got to go and do it on the track.  He travelled all the way to Hexham and back only last Saturday and even though he seemed to have come out of the race fine, he is only a three year old and you never really can tell until how they are until they actually run in their next race.  The blinkers seemed to help him concentrate and his jumping warmed up as the race went on and he probably saved his best jump for the final jump of hurdles and won fairly comfortably in the end.  While once again you could argue the form of the race is not good, once again you can say you can only beat what is put in front of you!  He is a really tough and genuine little horse and when his jumping improves even more there is definitely more improvement in him and he should be versatile ground wise.  Having claimed him just under five weeks ago it is fantastic to have got him over here and already won two races with him and all for less then £15k.  It is particularly nice that owners are now back on the racecourse and Stuart Mercer enjoyed every moment of being at Aintree last night.  He is pictured above giving Koi a well deserved kiss!

  Ranco runs at Newton Abbot this Evening

It is a busy day on the racing front with four flat meetings at Sandown, Chepstow, York & Goodwood plus two jumps meetings this evening at Aintree and Newton Abbot.  In Ireland there is jumping at Clonmel and flat racing at Fairyhouse.  David has three runners today, Ranco at Newton Abbot and two at Aintree, Koi Dodville and Nordic Combined.  The Racing Post has Ranco down has favourite for the 6pm handicap hurdle over 2 miles and Jack Tudor, claiming three is on board.  He ran well in his first handicap at Worcester last time out to finish a close fourth and the tighter track and even quicker ground should suit him even better tonight.  He is a three time flat winner who is looking for his first success over jumps and we are hopeful of a good run.

There are four flat meetings today and one jumps meeting but the stable does not have any runners today.  There is flat racing at Haydock, Yarmouth, Kempton and Hamilton plus a jumps card at Fontwell.  In Ireland there is flat action from Cork.  It is a seven race card at Fontwell and despite small fields in some races it looks fairly competitive throughout.  Neither Tom Scu or David Noonan are in action but Fergus Gillard has one ride, Mystic Court in the 2.45pm handicap hurdle.  He is 5/2 second favourite in the betting so looks to have a good chance.

     To Fly Free runs at Southwell today

It is a glorious sunny morning here at Pond House and we have two runners well on their way to Southwell already.  Awesomedude runs in the maiden hurdle at 2.35pm with Tom Scu on board for the Value Racing Club.  He ran well enough on his stable debut over hurdles at Market Rasen last time and hopefully he can build on this.  He actually finished last of five but was beaten only 3.5 lengths.  He was held up in a race that turned into a sprint as they turned for home and this did not really suit him.  He will of learnt a lot from his first start over hurdles and our five time flat winner looks to have a good chance this afternoon.  The Racing Post have him at 5/2 second favourite.
