Cavalieri feeling proud at Wolverhampton!

Cavalieri feeling proud at Wolverhampton!

Congratulations to Cavalieri and his Owners Simon Wyatt and David Marshall on an excellent win at Wolverhampton this afternoon. He was the first in the betting of our duo and it proved to be right as Jess, feeling the effects of his season  never seemed to  travelling ( thankfully he is fine) and he was eased up by Joe Fanning. Boxed in briefly, Philip Makin made some daylight and was ready to pounce on Cavvy off a suitably strong pace, staying on nicely and with all headgear off him today as well. We couldn’t be more delighted for his Owners who have stuck by their horse when he has taken time to recapture his form, but he has ran three good races in a row on the all-weather and clearly he loves this surface. Cavvy will be back out again following this win but Jess will be back at Castleton in a few days and won’t have a saddle on again for several months.

Next Edition ran a miles better race in the 1m 4f event for his Dibble Bridge Partnership, only beaten about 2 lengths although just out the placings,  and his turn looks to be coming. Kiwayu who finished just behind him,  has rejoined us tonight and will be back at Middleham now with the other boys eating his late supper.  Julie and Kelly will be glad to be home after a very long day , their efforts were rewarded with three best turned out awards today, dead heating in the 2.55 with our 2 runners as they were both so smart, they couldn’t be split! We take great pride in the turnout of our horses at the races and we hope you agree our dedicated team always make a great effort ( unless Phil has gone on his own and he doesn’t  plait!) Julie has another long day

A kiss for Pass Muster from Julie

A kiss for Pass Muster from Julie

ahead of her at Fakenham tomorrow, and hopefully another BTO for either Dibble Bridge or Perennial who run in the same race, the selling handicap hurdle. These tiring days will feel worth it when Julie gets to ride her favourite horse, Pass Muster in an amateur race next season, Phil and I bought him back in from Tatts Newmarket so he is another one we would be happy to lease at a small sum to stay in the yard. He can run in some of the valuable Musselburgh staying races next summer and won the Musselburgh Gold Cup in 2013, his favourite track. We have always loved this talented performer who has tons of ability and can land another good prize in 2016.
