Tuesday’s News & Sedgefield winner

Lord Torranago wins the novice at Sedgefield

After a couple of near misses ( Whoshotthesherrif a terrific 2nd at Carlisle, Tekibleu de l’Orme 2nd at Sedge and that agonising 2nd from ‘Oak Vintage’ at Sedge to  name a few ) the French import ‘Lord Torranago’ jumped well and led from pillar to post in the Novice Hurdle –  showing plenty of tenacity to keep his head in front for Tommy when the favourite came to him.

This was a really likeable hurdling debut and we can look forward to a good winter with him – he broke the track speed record and on genuine good winter ground this was some feat. Tommy also rode a winner for Ollie Greenhall so it was a welcome double on the day for him.

We also had Suggestion ( will come on for the run) and Show Promise ( likely to revert to hurdles after a less than convincing first chasing experience ) to complete our Sedge trio, all returned safely. On Saturday we saw Rayna’s World a good second at Catterick under Joe Williamson who has taken out his Apprentice licence to ride some of the heavier weighted flat runners. Joe will continue to ride under both codes and this gives him plenty of chances – he is legged up on Imajorblush at Newcastle today. Rayna’s World is entered up at Ayr in a maiden fillies hurdle and will run providing the ground is soft and Phil feels she has come out of this race well. Another two to note over the weekend were Wye Aye & Dame du Ruban, both running pleasing races for 3rd at Market Rasen. Pennine Cross also ran in his first novice hurdle and jumped well – there will be more to come over from him the winter months as he gains experience.

After a quiet day Monday we have 2 at Newcastle today and they are both nice each way chances – Burrows Seeside who ran a promising seasonal debut and Imajorblush who has been threatening  to land one for  a while. Best of luck to our Owners today 🍀🐎

The ten to follow Page will be Updated later today.
