A SUNNY TRIP TO JERSEY

08-09-2017

THIS WEEK After a sunny bank holiday weekend spent in Jersey where we were invited to attend one of The Jersey Racing Club's key fixtures.  We returned to an exciting evening down at Newton Abbot where we were whiskers from our first double!  Brilliant performances from both Salto Chisco and Tangoed secured a successful evening for both The Harry Whittington Racing Club and The Great British Racing Club.  So now as we look forwards in anticipation, the wait is almost over before our first batch of runners in the new autumn campaign set sail to fly the flag for HWR... REPORTS Salto Chisco overcame trouble to score for the 2nd time this season at Newton Abbot last Tuesday.  He was dropped in and travelled nicely under jockey Harry Bannister, jumping more tidily than he did when last seen at Ffos Las.  As the race developed he made good progress to close in on the long-time leader Berry De Carjac.  He challenged the leader up the inside at the 2nd last but got hampered.  Harry switched him out coming to the last, Salto produced a great leap and went on to win by ½ a length.  He is now 3 from 9 for the yard and will continue to be competitive going forwards. The Harry Whittington Racing Clubs' Tangoed produced an improved performance to finish 2nd in the mares bumper that ended the same card.  The leaders set a very fast pace and Tangoed was dropped in.  She travelled well throughout the contest and when the race developed she started to make a move.  She found trouble in running but when she got out she made good headway.  Unfortunately she couldn’t get on terms with the eventual winner Thelunarscooner, eventually finishing 2nd.  It was another step in the right direction and she will keep progressing through the season. SHARES STILL AVAILABLE IN THIS POPULAR RACING CLUB SO GET IN TOUCH FOR FURTHER INFORMATION Ritasun has had 2 visits to the racecourse in the last few weeks.  The first was on the flat at Goodwood where he ran in a 1m 1f amateur’s flat race.  They went very quick and he didn’t handle the undulations of the track very well, eventually finishing 8th.  He was then turned out quickly at Bangor over hurdles last Friday.  It was his handicap debut and he produced a solid performance, travelling well and settling far better than he had in previous runs.  Jumping 2 out he looked a danger but he couldn’t quite pick up as well as the leaders, eventually finished 4th.  He should continue to be competitive in handicap hurdles off his current mark. ENTRIES Jack Bear returns from a break at Kempton this evening.  Although his current flat rating of 77, is above his last winning mark but he goes into the race in good form.  The race is for 4yo’s and up which suits him well and it looks a very open affair.  Martin Harley rides and granted some luck he should go well.  This should be a nice stepping stone to an autumn campaign for him. Charlie Papa Lima is set for his next start at Perth on Monday.  He has been running consistently well without getting his head in front this summer and now steps up to 3 miles for the first time under rules.  He won his point to point over this distance and granted a decent surface, he should improve for the longer trip.  It is a wide open race but with the expected improvement, he should run very well. Woolstone One could potentially start her hurdling career at Worcester on Tuesday in a mares maiden hurdle.  She had an excellent year in bumpers in 2015/16 but missed last season with niggly problems.  She has done very well for her summer break and has been schooling nicely.  This is a great starting point for her and we can’t wait to see this talented mare back on a racecourse. Until next week...
