We were so proud of the little chestnut mare, Iconic Belle last night – she took her 3rd race in 8 races, managing to keep ahead of her new handicap mark, and Joe Williamson taking 7lb of her 8lb double off. She needed the claim and a good ride from Joe over a trip she hasn’t won over on the flat before, she must have been feeling the effects of her 3rd long journey but she was as brave as a lion for her Owners and although they couldn’t be there, they celebrated at their respective homes last night.
Belle is in good form this morning and having a few well deserved days off!
We are back on the AW again today while enjoying watching The Cheltenham Festival first…
We have 3 Good chances tonight at Southwell. Hope Eden Racing’s ‘Little India’ Is our first runner at 7:15. She lost nothing and defeat last time against our other mare, Ravenscar. She had won the time before, and over a new trip of 2 miles tonight, she can definitely get involved again. Fircombe Hall is having his first run back after a break, and although he will tighten up for the run, he’s off a workable handicap mark, and should be winning more races again this season. The exciting Authorised half brother, Autonomy goes for a hat-trick of wins in the 8.15 race, and if he is over his two recent runs then he should take all the beating. Autonomy runs in the beige & navy of HAMBLETON RACING & we wish them lots of luck with their talented young stayer.
