Bashful Boy Wins at Nottingham!

We had just the seven runners last week, but it was nice to have two winners and a few places as well. It was a winner on the both codes for the team with Bashful Boy winning at Nottingham on the flat and Abaya Du Mathan winning at his beloved Ffos Las.

        Fergus Gillard - Pastures New

We only had a few runners last week but from that we record three second places courtesy of Only Fools, Kolisi and D’jango.  While second places can be a little frustrating, all three horses ran well and are capable of winning races this summer.

It has been a good week for the yard with a few winners which included a double at Ffos Las, a winner at Southwell and a winner on the flat at Salisbury.  It was double’s all round last Monday at Ffos Las for myself, jockey Jack Tudor and owners, the Value Racing Club.

                     Holiday Time  

It was quiet for us on the runner’s front last week but the few we did run all ran well.  Last Quarter and Call Her Clever both finished fourth at Worcester in their respective races.  Last Quarter is a quirky character and jockey Jack Tudor came back and said please can I have another go!  The ability is there but it is a challenge to get the best out of him on the racecourse and so it was nice for Jack to come back feeling positive and wanting to try something different on him next time.  Call Her Clever made a pleasing career debut to be a close fourth.  She was a little green but galloped all the way through the line and we will run her again in another bumper in a few weeks’ time and I am sure she will improve for the experience.  Micronormous ran her best race to date over hurdles at Fontwell on Wednesday, finishing a close third.  Hopefully this will have given her some confidence to build on for next time.

  Duc De Beauchene (leading) Winner Again

It was great get off the mark for the new season with Duc De Beauchene winning the Norfolk National at Fakenham last week.  He raced very enthusiastically behind the leaders under Fergus Gillard throughout and stated on strongly at the end of the race to see out the trip really well on his first try over the marathon distance.  He has been in rude health of late, winning at Wincanton, finishing second to a progressive rival at Kempton and then winning again off top weight the other day.  He seems to have appreciated the better ground of late and will be kept on the go for now with some more long distance chases the main objective.  While the handicapper will have his say tomorrow, while he remains in good heart there is more to come.

The new season got underway at Kempton last Monday, just 48 hours after the last one finished! Duc De Beauchene nearly got us off to a flyer, running a great race to be second. Off an eleven pound higher mark than he won off at Wincanton previously he put in another good display and galloped all the way through the line. He has come out of that race well and runs in the Norfolk National at Fakenham on Tuesday.

Thanksforthehelp: Our last winner of the Season!

The 2022-23 season came to an end at Sandown on Saturday and we had a great final week to the season with four winners across both codes to end with 74 winners and over £1 million in prize money. This is our best season in terms of numbers and prize money for some Time and while I shall reflect in greater depth about the whole season in due course it has been a fantastic season and something we can build on again going forwards.
