For 90% of the race, Milrow looked like winning at Market Rasen. We had everything beat 2 out, all of our rivals were been pushed along but Milrow was still on the bridle in 2nd place. Unfortunately, it went wrong from there and the petrol tank was on empty jumping the last. Milrow had a really hard race two weeks ago and that took its toll. We were a bit concerned before the race this outing might come a bit quick and so it proved.
We’ll give the horse a few weeks in the field now and re-charge the batteries, Milrow had a flat campaign before we purchased him and it’s just caught up with the horse.
With National Hunt racing now taking a mid-summer break our flat horse Mountain Rescue will keep us ticking along and might run later this week.
