We hit the crossbar at the weekend, Kings Fete should have won but was given far too much ground to make up. The horse was plum last two out a good 15 / 20 lengths adrift of the leader, once asked for his effort Kings Fete picked up quickly passing all bar one horse but the line just came a few strides early.
It will be intresting to see what connections do with him now, maybe a St Leger horse?
We got the 3rd & 5th in the 32Red “Stewards Cup” Alben Star 11-1 & Muthmir 5-1, both were EW so no harm done.
Our unbeaten mare Rhythm Star is now back cantering on the Lambourn gallops, trainer Jamie Snowden tells me she’s in great form and full of herself. Were arranging a stable day in the next few weeks for her owners to watch her work and maybe see star jump a few hurdles.
Were in the process at the moment of trying to find another National Hunt horse to run through the season proper, it’s likely we’ll bid to source a flat runner, 80 odd rated that stays well and handles bit of cut. If you would like any info or add your name to the waiting list do get in touch as our syndicates fill very quickly.
The 7:30 at Kempton look an interesting maiden with many of the top yards represented.
I’ve heard on the grape vine Equitanus priced at 3-1 and trained by Andrew Balding is well above average and showing plenty on the gallops. The yards horses tend to improve for the run so win or lose put Equitanus in your notebook as he should go on to better things in time.
