Saturday March 10th

An unbelievable day Friday!!! 2 fab Military results with me and ‘Ratify’ winning the Hurdle and max on ‘Winter Lion’ running a cracking race in the Grand Military to come 4th.

So proud of the team at home for all the support and this wonderful horse for looking after me and digging in after the last to win. He is 14 years old and very genuine and game. He really enjoys his job and I thank John and Val King for letting me ride him. A wonderful day ahead of Cheltenham Festival week!!!!

Connections of ‘Ratify’ in the winners enclosure.

2 very happy faces after a fab winner.

Max then gave ‘Winter Lion’ a patient ride at the back and got him into a rhythm before surging up the inner to be a good 4th. He is a lovely horse and has a big future.

We had a good day yesterday with ‘Belle Amis’ running on to pass 2 in the closing stages of the Mares Listed Bumper. It was a fantastic race. All the mares involved had all won bumpers so it was a very competitive field. She was outpaced mid way through the race but galloped all the way up the Sandown hill to come 6th.

The stunning mare ‘Belle Amis’ who is going to be extremely exciting next season over hurdles.

‘Minella Scamp’ ran a cracking race at Hereford to come 2nd. He has had 2 very solid races for us now and we hope a win isn’t too far away.

The Malcolm Denmark owned ‘Minella Scamp’ who jumped brilliantly yesterday to come 2nd at Hereford.

Lots of staff were in today to give the Cheltenham runners a stretch of legs. They all looked amazing. We are all very excited for the week ahead.

We have 1 runner today at Warwick. ‘Barakilla’ runs in the 5:00 hunterchase. Zac Baker takes the ride again after winning well on him at Bangor last time out. We wish them the very best of luck.

One runner tomorrow. ‘No Dice’ runs at Stratford in a 2 mile Novice handicap chase.

Thanks for reading.
