Tangley makes it 50
Tangley brought up our 50th winner of the campaign with a narrow success on her debut over hurdles at Wincanton on Wednesday.
We are closing fast on our best score of 54 set last season and with Cheltenham around the corner and the horses remaining in good form we will be looking to kick on now and have as many winners as possible before the end of April.
Tangley jumped well and moved into contention between the final two flights of the Mares' Novices Hurdle before staying on to beat the favourite Kristal Hart by half a length.
As the winner of her only Point-to-Point for Jack Barber last spring she was doing all her best work in the closing stages on Wednesday so stepping up in trip at some point should not be a problem.
Tangley hasn't set the world alight in her two runs in bumpers but I've always been felt she would make a hurdler and am hopefully she can progress from this promising start.
