Ratfacemcdougall wins at Hereford
Ratfacemcdougall kept the good run of form going when winning the Trumper Tea Novices’ Hurdle at Hereford under another good ride from Max Kendrick. This was our 4th winner from our last 4 runners giving us a 100% strike rate!
Silent Encore was a little disappointing at Warwick where he was pulled up but has come out of his race fine and may have a run back over hurdles to regain his confidence. Shanty Alley put in another good run at Uttoxeter under Wayne Hutchinson to finish 5th, he will now have a summer break and we look forward to going chasing with him. Midnightreflection ran with promise on her first start in a competitive mares’ bumper also at Uttoxeter and should have learnt a lot from the experience.
Two runners declared for Market Rasen tomorrow with Coded Message in the mares’ handicap hurdle ridden by Kielan Woods and Stoner’s Choice makes his racecourse debut in the maiden open NH flat race ridden by Max Kendrick.
Other entries for this week include First Drift, Hugo’s Reflection and Kilbrew Boy.
It was great to be named Trainer of the Quarter after Croco Bay’s Cheltenham Festival win with a nice feature in the Trainer Magazine.
