INTRODUCING THE ARZAL BARN!

27-01-2017

THIS WEEK The day we've all been patiently waiting for arrived earlier in the week as we moved into the new barn! Now aptly named 'The Arzal Barn', each of the 19 brand spanking new boxes are filled with delightfully happy horses.  So whilst there has been a lot of movement around the yard this week we have very little to report elsewhere, however there are a few more entries on the horizon in the coming week... REPORTS Regal Gait finished another good 2nd at Wetherby on Tuesday.  He jumped off in front under Jerry McGrath, but was soon relegated to 2nd when the hard pulling Most Celebrated tanked into the lead.  He again jumped well and turned into the straight still in contention, but didn’t have the gears to go with the impressive winner who looks to be a Triumph Hurdle candidate.  Regal plugged on gamely on ground that was tacky enough for him and now qualifies for handicaps. Blandfords Gunner finished 4th at Catterick on Wednesday.  He jumped and travelled very well on his drop back to 2 miles under jockey James Nixon.  His jumping took him to the front turning for home, but when the pace lifted he wasn’t able to go with the leaders. He stuck on to just take 4th on the line.  He enjoyed the switch back to a sounder surface and will be more suited by a stronger gallop at this trip which we will aim for next. ENTRIES Dara’s Present is set to face 13 rivals on his stable debut at Doncaster today.  He won on his last start in Irish Point to Points at Boulta, posting an impressive time and should be suited by the better ground tomorrow.  He is a chaser for the future but has done everything that’s been asked of him at home so far.  We can’t wait to get him going and learn some more about him. Bigmartre is set to have his 2nd start of the season at Cheltenham tomorrow.  He posted a career best at Kempton last time out and has come on for that run.  The switch to a stiffer track on a more testing surface should suit him and with just a 3lb rise he should be bang there once again.  It's a cracking meeting and it will be great to go there with a good chance. fit=1200x350-1 Vinnie Lewis is set to have his 2nd handicap start at Plumpton on Monday.  He went close last time at Huntingdon over shorter trip and should be suited by the step up to 3m here.  He has only gone up 2lb for his last run and should be very competitive once again.  He is very tough and genuine and we feel there’s lots more to come from him. Salto Chisco is entered at Leicester on Wednesday but is likely to wait for a race at Taunton on the following Sunday.  He has had a nice break since his Southwell run and is very fresh and well.  He spread a plate quite badly the last day and that effected his jumping.  He should be competitive off this mark, on his favoured better ground. Kilgeel Hill is set to have his 2nd start for the yard at Leicester on Wednesday.  He was keen on his return from a long break last time out, but ran very well for a long way before pulling up.  He has come out of that race well and drops in trip and class here.  He looks on a very attractive mark on his old form and if he settles better, he should run very well. Benefit of Luck is entered at Leicester and Hereford next Wednesday. He finished 4th on bumper debut for his previous yard, where the race wasn’t run to suit and starts his hurdling career here over 2 and a half miles.  He had been very keen on his 2nd bumper start but has relaxed well in our routine and has been working nicely.  Hopefully he can reproduce that on the track. Tutchec is set to have his next start at either Towcester on Thursday or Lingfield the following Monday.  He ran a huge race last time out under David Bass and a reproduction of that should see him run very well again.  Soft ground and 3m+ is very important to him.  The switch to front running tactics suited him and we will look to do the same again next.
