Duc De Beauchene runs at Wincanton Today!

Today we have two runners at Wincanton, Texard and Duc De Beauchene. Texard runs in the 2.30pm handicap chase over two miles with James Best in the saddle. He was twice a winner earlier in the season but has not been in such great form since returning from a break. You can forgive him his last two races however as they were in the military races at Sandown over a trip that was probably too far with inexperienced jockeys on board. This race should be more suitable today and the handicapper has dropped him a few pounds which can only help. It is a competitive race and we are the outsider of the field but if he returns to form he does have the ability to go well. He sports first time cheekpieces this afternoon and hopefully he can take a step back in the right direction.

Duc De Beauchene runs in the veterans handicap chase over three miles at 3.00pm with Fergus Gillard on board. He has been disappointing so far this season although he did run a bit better to be second at Hereford last time out. The winner of that race has won again since so it was probably not bad run. He wears first time blinkers in an attempt to sharpen him up and he is handicapped to run well. I see the betting has him down as 9/4 favourite and while I won’t be backing him I would love to see him win. I was at the sales in France when we bought him unraced and he has been super horse for us over the years.

We had four runners over the weekend and our only disappointment was Eden Du Houx at Newbury. He is talented but not the most consistent and this was one of his off days. I’m sure he will bounce back. At Exeter yesterday all of our runners were placed and ran well but we just couldn’t quite get a winner. Kepagge backed up his Ffos Las win to be second. The front pair pulled clear of the others and it is nice he has put two good runs in a row together. Ya Know Yaseff finished fourth and ran well, perhaps not just seeing out the trip on the testing track. She was in the lead at two out but tired as they approached the last. Gwencily Berbas ran another solid race to be third in the marathon chase. He travelled and jumped beautifully throughout but off a higher handicap mark than he won off previously, this was probably just enough to anchor him this time. He clearly loves Exeter and I am sure we might head back there again providing the right race comes along before the end of the season. He is a very spritely twelve years young and he loves his racing and has been brilliant for his owners over the years.

Wales and Scotland won their European qualifying matches on Saturday while yesterday England beat Ukraine 2-0. The action continues today with the Republic of Ireland hosting France at 7.45pm.

My boyfriend poked me in the eye…I stopped seeing him for a while!  Happy Monday!
