Ravenscar wins her third AW race of the campaign

What a cracking good mare Ravenscar is turning out to be – she won her second race in 7 days at Southwell yesterday and her third of the Winter AW campaign to add to her Newcastle win before Christmas. Ridden by Ben Curtis, she sat in midfield and ground down the long time leader ‘Beach Break’ ( carrying 8 stone 8) a half brother to our Wemyss Point & the Hugh class Allmankind ) in the last 50 yards. Carrying top weight ( 10 stone 3) this was another good performance and she has matured physically & mentally in the last 6 months. Having already ran several times in juvenile hurdles, and shown promise, she will return to that sphere in better ground when Phil sees the right opportunities.

Phil & Joe took yesterday’s runners, here is Joe leading back in a winning Ravenscar #Fedontopspec

Our other two mares ran sound enough races, Misscarlett & Little India both 5th and staying on to the line to suggest that a step up in trip next time will help.



Points on the 14th count.
