Golden Birthday enjoyed the unexpected luxury of a nice schooling round of jumping at Stratford on Saturday as three of his four opponents in the novice chase were withdrawn before the race. That left him as a 1-7 shot to beat the only other runner Cotton Jenny in an uncompetitive match. Kieron Edgar kept things simple by allowing Golden Birthday to lead at a sensible pace and the horse was neve...

Litterale Ci just pipped her stable companion Serosevsky in a tight finish to the valuable Handicap Hurdle at Newton Abbot on Saturday. It was the first time we’ve had a one/two in a race and there was nothing between them in the closing stages until Litterale Ci edged ahead by half a length in the final fifty yards. It was the right race for both horses as we could not really separate the...

Golden Birthday extended our winning sequence with a decisive first victory over fences at Stratford on Thursday. A wonderfully versatile horse, he has won nine times in a variety of disciplines since Gary Stevens asked us to train him and is now showing a fair bit of promise as a chaser. While he wasn’t foot perfect on his debut over fences last month when he finished second at Uttoxeter,...

A straightforward success at Newton Abbot on Tuesday should put Serosevsky spot on for his return to the track in eleven days time for a valuable Handicap Hurdle we won a year ago with Golden Birthday. We didn’t originally plan to run him in this novice hurdle but when the race was re-opened it seemed too good an opportunity to miss. The timing was right, the opposition was modest and he e...

The decision to withdraw Voix D’Eau from the Doncaster Sales in May has paid handsome dividends for his team of syndicate owners over the last six weeks. He won nicely at Worcester early in July and added a second more valuable victory at Southwell on Sunday off a mark of 139. He was well ridden on both occasions by our talented amateur Aine O’Connor who gets a good tune out of him. ...

 It was good to see Voix D’Eau end a long losing sequence with a decisive success in the sunshine at Worcester on Monday. The bonus was that half a dozen of the enthusiastic syndicate who own him were present to cheer him on. His task was made easier with two early non runners and then the favourite Newton Geronimo coming out of the race at the start. He had also been given a chance ...

Shraaoh won stylishly at Goodwood on Friday night on his second start since joining us early this year. An attractive five year old gelding by Sea The Stars, he had decent form for Sir Michael Stoute and split Dal Harraild and Move Up in a tight photo finish at Glorious Goodwood in 2016. I was thrilled that Shraaoh was sent to us by his new owners for a campaign on the flat after they bought him...

Aine O’Connor gained the biggest success of her career as an amateur jockey on Drumcliff in the valuable Clarke Chase at Uttoxeter on Sunday. She was winning in the famous green and gold colours of JP McManus for the second time inside 24 hours following her excellent triumph on Litterale Ci at Ffos Las on Saturday evening. Aine is great value for her 7 lbs claim and gave Drumcliff a perfe...

Litterale Ci and Aine O’Connor continued their winning ways with a fluent success in a Class 3 Handicap Hurdle at Ffos Las on Saturday evening. Once again Aine rode the mare with plenty of confidence, waiting patiently until making ground steadily in the final straight. The pair moved into a challenging position going to the last flight before easing past the 100-30 favourite Skewiff on th...

  Serosevsky provided our first winner of the new season with a fluent success at Exeter on Tuesday evening.   In beating the odds on favourite Rockpoint by one and a half lengths in the colours of Brian and Sandy Lambert he was taking a nice step forward from his encouraging debut over hurdles at Wincanton last month.   He kept on well on the flat at Exeter after a sustained d...

Black Mischief enjoyed the faster ground at Kempton on Thursday evening in winning a Class 3 Handicap Hurdle with the help of another finely judged ride by our talented claiming amateur Aine O’Connor.   Conditions were just too testing for him last time at Taunton. Stepping back up in trip again to two miles, five furlongs also seemed to suit this horse who seems to be getting the han...

Cockney Wren enjoyed the better spring going as she landed the Mares Novice Hurdle at Taunton on Wednesday evening in taking style.   She has had an op to help her breathing since her last run in November and is one of a number of our team who have been waiting for better ground.   Cockney Wren was very consistent in her bumper days and as she looks after herself at home I’d ex...

It felt good to finally reach a half century for the jumps season on Sunday after a frustrating spell over the past three weeks.   My sister in law Aine was at her coolest as she delivered Litterale Ci fast and late to land the Mares Handicap Hurdle at Stratford in the colours of JP McManus.   We have had more than our share of seconds recently so it was a relief to see Litterale Ci ...

The decision by the Haydock stewards to demote Lamanver Odyssey to second place after the Challenger Mares’ Series Handicap Hurdle Final on Saturday completed an unfortunate and possibly unique reverse for her owner breeder Dr Donna Christensen. Two years ago the horse’s full sister Lady Of Lamanver was disqualified and placed second for causing minimal interference after winning the ...

Captain Drake became our third bumper winner in the past five days with a resolute success in testing conditions at Towcester on Thursday under Mike Legg. All three of them are really nice prospects and should give their owners plenty to dream about over the summer. Captain Drake is a fine, big chasing type we bought at the sales in December a month or so after he finished a good second on his d...

Definitelyanoscar made an impressive winning debut for her new owners in a Mares’ maiden bumper at Market Rasen on Monday. She joined us shortly after romping to an easy success in a point-to-point at Barbary Castle in January partnered by Martin McIntyre. We already knew a bit about her as Martin and her trainer Chris Barber both ride out for us in the morning.So we moved quickly to seal...

Noel Fehily reached a century of winners for the season at Newbury on Saturday with a typically astute ride from the front on Caribert in the valuable Goffs UK Spring Sales Bumper.   The race has long been the target for the horse who is owned in partnership by Phil Fry, Charlie Walker and Osborne House.   Confident that Caribert stayed well and would handle the testing ground Noel s...

American Gigolo completed his hat-trick on the flat with a narrow success in the Betway Stayers’ Handicap at Newcastle on Tuesday evening.   The 358 mile journey from Seaborough to the North East took fully six hours but it was more than justified when American Gigolo landed the £15,562 first prize at his first attempt over two miles.   He has been running on the flat bec...

Behind Time gained a well deserved first success over fences at Uttoxeter on Saturday in the valuable novice handicap we won last year with American. It was a nice prize for a big horse who has been a work in progress this season and looked a fair bit sharper wearing cheek pieces for the first time. Behind Time had taken a step forward on his previous start at Ffos Las where he finished third de...

As I See It gained a deserved first victory at Huntingdon on Wednesday after a series of consistent performances. In winning the maiden three mile hurdle narrowly from his chief market rival Oakley Hall he was providing a first success for his owners Clare Clifford and Diana Goodall with their first horse. They were both at Huntingdon to cheer on As I See It and his jockey Niall Madden who gave ...
