Winston strikes at Wincanton
Winston C deliverered our first success of the New Year with a fluent victory in a competitive maiden hurdle at Wincanton on Saturday.
Rated 87 on the flat he was sent to us by Charles Wentworth in the summer and ran well on a couple of occasions on the level in the final weeks of the season before an encouraging debut over hurdles at Huntingdon where he stayed on to finish third behind the smart novice Brewin’upastorm.
I’d imagine he will run again in a few weeks to gain more experience and I’d like to think that he can develop into a useful handicapper over hurdles.
Winston C is certainly a useful dual purpose horse to have in the yard and will be suited by an end to end gallop when he can be dropped in before using his flat race speed to good effect on the flat.
