General Strikes Again
I was delighted to see General Ginger double his score over hurdles at Newton Abbot on Monday.
He is not the finished article yet and still needs to mature mentally. But he is going the right way and had the race won going to the second last hurdle where he quickly saw off the challenge of the favourite Full Blast.
General Ginger is still a bit keener in his races than ideal and there is room for improvement in his jumping.
He is well suited by the drier ground at present and did not have a hard race so he will be out again in the next fortnight either in a handicap hurdle or in another novice event where he may have to carry a double penalty.
Either way I will not be aiming too high with him for the time being.
