A double at Worcester on Wednesday maintained the sparkling form of our team in the new season.

 

The long dry spell has seriously restricted our numbers of runners but the ones who have run over the past three weeks have done us proud and we have now had eight winners from fourteen starters at a strike rate of 57 per cent.

 

Steel Bob was the first to strike at Worcester in the staying novice hurdle after the favourite Follow The Bear was withdrawn when the rain came.

 

Despite winning a point to point in Ireland he has taken time to get the hang of jumping hurdles and was again less than fluent at times in winning by two and a quarter lengths.

 

The positive thing is that he remains a novice for another eleven months.

 

Old Harry Rocks then completed a double for the yard on his first venture at two and a half miles over hurdles.

 

Although the ground was probably a bit too soft for him he was not winning out of turn and got the trip well.

 

Both our winners had copybook rides from Noel Fehily who enjoyed a treble on the day. He continues to be the most tremendous asset to the yard on the racecourse and in the mornings on the schooling grounds.

 

We are likely to be a bit quieter now with most of our horses turned out to grass for their summer holidays.

 

So we are left with a handful to run in the coming months.
