Team Kirby are celebrating tonight after a battling win today for Bruce Almighty in the handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter, its our first win for some of his Owners, and it was a particularly good ride from yard conditional Adam Nicol. Bruce wasn’t travelling that well and Adam switched him to the outside and with some daylight he picked back up and stayed on all the way to the line. He is a welcome winner after a host of seconds and thirds the last few weeks.
Our other runner of the day, Triple Eight finished just out of the money at Carlisle: he ran well for a long way but his busy summer and handicap mark may just be catching up with him now. Both horses are fine, as is ANIKNAM who ran a sound seasonal debut at Wetherby yesterday for Nobaj ltd with his usual partner, James Reveley on board.
Further news update later…
