Winner for Hazard Chase
A change of tactics helped General Ginger gain his first win for his twenty strong group of owners at Kempton on Wednesday.
He is a horse who has always shown plenty at home in the mornings but this was the first time he has confirmed it on the racecourse.
We were disappointed with his run at Kempton nine days earlier where he was rather taken off his feet by the furious early gallop.
This time he was able to dictate from the front, jumping soundly, before readily pulling clear of Destiny's Gold on the flat.
We will keep General Ginger on the go on the summer ground which seems to suit him so well, with another novice hurdle under a penalty the most likely choice for his next race in three weeks time.
