A double at Taunton on Thursday took the prize money we have won this season past the total of £528,346 that our horses earned in the previous campaign.

 

Hopefully we can now kick on towards our first half century of winners after Space Oddity and A Plein Temps increased our score to 43 winners with almost two months of the season still to run.

 

Both horses benefitted from typically skilful rides at Taunton from Noel Fehily who has been such a brilliant ally since I started training.

 

Space Oddity pulls so hard that he is his own worst enemy. He is far from an easy ride but Noel managed to keep just enough in hand to help him hold on in a tight finish.

 

While the horse is going in the right direction he has to learn to settle if he is to progress with experience.

 

It was good to see A Plein Temps land his first handicap at the first attempt with Noel very much dictating matters from the front.

 

I was a bit concerned that the going might again be too soft for him but he managed to overcome the conditions and could be one to keep on the right side once he encounters drier ground in the weeks ahead.
