It's a Jolly Christmas

Jollyallan delivered the Christmas present we were hoping for with a decisive success in the Class 2 Novices Hurdle at Kempton on Boxing Day.

The strong early pace suited him well as he has such a high cruising speed and though he was not foot perfect at the last flight he was well in command at the finish as he beat the Irish raider Sempre Medici by four and a half lengths.

We wanted to see improvement in Jollyallan's jumping and it was better though AP McCoy felt he was still a bit clumsy at times.

He is such a big horse and the penny has not quite dropped yet. But he is certainly going the right way and is now unbeaten in three runs over hurdles.

It is all about giving Jollyallan experience at this stage, so I imagine he'll be sticking to novice races for the time being.
