SUCCESS WITH OUR SUMMER HORSES
As well as having plenty of placed horses this month, Cawthorne won a chase very nicely at Uttoxeter under a great ride from Henry Brooke. It was a chase with a difference though as, because of low sun, they didn’t jump any fences in the home straight and this probably forced Henry’s hand sooner than ideal. However he held on to win narrowly.
He has always had plenty of potential and it was frustrating last season that after he won he couldn’t back it up. To see him back up his first time out win at Worcester with this win was therefore very pleasing.
Josh felt he would be better off having longer between runs which he did and that definitely helped, as has him being more settled and straightforward at the races this season.
He has been a really fun horse for the Back to the Track syndicate as has My Poem who is in the same syndicate. She was placed the day before at Worcester in a race that was not run to suit and with a muddling pace. They will both go close next time.
We have plenty of horses to look forward to as well as Cawthorne and My Poem, with Go on Chez heading to Bangor on Friday in flying form, Sucellus looking to bounce back at Haydock his beloved track on 7th Aug and plenty more.
We also have an exciting Autumn team that came in a month earlier than the rest of the winter horses as they prefer slightly better ground. We can’t wait to see them back on the track in September with the likes of The Questioner and Monte Igueldo amongst them.
