*Nautical Nitwit Wins @ Newcastle!*
Following his 3rd at Southwell the day before Nitwit was clearly just warming up for his trip to Newcastle on Saturday! The 2m ‘jumpers bumper’ at Southwell hadn’t tired him like his usual 3m over hurdles would and he pulled out on Saturday morning happy and sound ready for more, and with the favourite declared a non-runner it looked an opportunity for this cracking little horse to take his chance again. It was another ‘jumpers bumper’ and this time he partnered up with Adam Nicol for a hard battle from a furlong out, but Nitwit’s gritty determination saw him through to win by a short head. Its great to see him in the winners spot as he is always up against it with his consistent best efforts leading to very little respite from the handicapper – huge well done Nitwit and big congrats to his owners Birrafun 2!
Meg – clearly delighted with Nitwit!
