Horses for courses
There is nowhere quite like Taunton for Hint of Mint who gained his fourth course win on Sunday in the Bathwick Tyres Taunton Handicap Hurdle over two miles.
We were worried beforehand that the ground was too soft for him and it was much more testing than he likes but he has a good attitude and held on well on the run in to beat Bertimont by one and a quarter lengths despite idling in front.
That was his second consecutive victory at his favourite racecourse but he didn't win by far in either occasion so hopefully the handicapper will not be too hard on him.
We will be looking for more handicaps at Taunton for Hint of Mint who missed last season with an injury and has done well for his owner breeders Sandie and David Newton since they sent him to us in the summer.
