Get In The Queue doubled his score for the season with a runaway success in the closing bumper at Exeter on Friday run in thick fog.
 
It was hard to pick out the runners for much of the race but he was clearly in front rounding the final bend and was out on his own as he emerged from the gloom inside the last furlong with not another horse in sight.
 
The official verdict was a sixteen length victory from Sheshoon Sonny with the third another nine lengths further back.
 
Noel Fehily reported that he had rarely if ever drawn away so decisively in the closing stages at Exeter.
 
Get In The Queue learned plenty from his debut at Uttoxeter where he was pretty clueless in the first mile with Mike Legg pumping away trying to get him involved. Then he began to get the hang of things and finished full of running as he gained an impressive victory.
 
He is an imposing, rangy type who is going to make a lovely hurdler for Paul and Clare Rooney next season.
 
Before then he has a date in a month’s time at Newbury in the £50,000 Goffs Uk sales Bumper that we have won for the past two years.
 
We might also discuss entering him in the Champion Bumper in case the rain comes in time for the Cheltenham Festival.
 
It is great to have the horses in good form after a quiet couple of months and on a personal note I couldn’t be more delighted to see Noel Fehily fit and well again after a tough few weeks when he had two spells in hospital following surgery for an appendix problem.
 
Noel continues to be a huge asset for our team and is delighted to be back in the saddle with decent chances this weekend on two of our big guns Bags Groove and If The Cap Fits.
