Youngsters at the Double
Bitofapuzzle started the ball rolling with an impressive debut over hurdles in a mares novices' race over two and three quarter miles.
Her form has been so smart in her bumper races that she started at the extremely tight odds of 2-13 and there was much to like about the way she travelled from the start before leading three out and winning as we hoped.
It was a useful learning experience and Bitofapuzzle will do even better with a stronger gallop. All being well I plan to send her to Haydock next on December 20 for a Mares' Listed Novice Hurdle over two and a half miles.
Polamco then completed a double for the stable at our local track with a comfortable success in a novices handicap hurdle. The step up in trip to two and three quarter miles helped as he was pushed out by Noel Fehily to win by one and a quarter lengths from Muckle Roe.
I always felt that Polamco would take a step forward once handicapping over a trip. He is progressing nicely and I hope he is open to further improvement.
