Sweetheart comes good
Goodnitesweetheart gained a tidy first success over hurdles at Fontwell on Wednesday in a Class 5 mares' handicap.
It is fair to say she had been a bit disappointing this season though she was probably unsuited by racing on testing ground through the winter.
She showed timely improvement on Wednesday upped in trip on drier going, was always prominent and stayed on well in the closing stags under Niall Madden despite idling in front.
Hopefully Goodnitesweetheart can continue to progress and she could be out again quickly under a penalty at Taunton next week.
Before joining us she won a point to point in the West Country beating Constantine Bay, who is now with Nicky Henderson and recently finished fourth in the Albert Bartlett Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
The form of her win on Wednesday is not remotely in that class but at least she is going the right way now.
