HWR WEEKLY NEWS
Beautiful foggy mornings with emerging sunshine has set the mood at Hill Barn this week.  Five days into the jumps racing break and the horses are raring to go.  They have stepped up in their pre-season training having progressed from roadwork and now onto the deep sand gallop which really comes into it's own at this time of year, helping to work on that core level of fitness ready for the winter ahead...

REPORTS
NUMBERONESON
This is always an especially quiet time of the year and we were without a runner for a couple of weeks until Numberoneson made the trip down to Newton Abbot on Sunday 18th July to contest the novices’ handicap hurdle over 2m1f.  Making what was his handicap debut, he was held up towards the rear and given a ground-saving ride along the inside by Robert Dunne.  He began to move forward and was still travelling sweetly on the heels of the leading group turning for home, but unfortunately, he couldn’t sustain his effort once coming off the bridle, fading to eventually finish eighth of the 12 runners.  He is now heading for a possible tilt back on the flat at Windsor on 16th August.
PARISIAN AFFAIR
The following Thursday, new addition to the team Parisian Affair made her debut for the yard at Worcester in the second division of the amateur jockeys’ handicap hurdle.  Previously placed in bumpers and on the Flat for Neil King and Roger Charlton respectively, she was ridden by her owner Pandora Briselden and occupied a position towards the rear in the early stages.  Moving well and jumping tidily for the majority of the contest this was a good first start over hurdles as a combination and we'll look to drop back in distance next time which should suit better.
WARRANTY
Warranty has run some good races on the Flat this summer and returned to Chepstow on 23rd July to contest another staying handicap.  A good third on his previous outing over course and distance, he was again ridden patiently, dropped out last in the field of five.  He needed to be squeezed along at stages, but made promising headway as the pace lifted inside the final four furlongs.  Driven to challenge two furlongs out, he kept on well for pressure but the winner found more, Warranty’s 3rd place another creditable effort in a tactical affair.
ENTRIES
NEVERBEEN TO PARIS
With jump racing taking its annual summer break, our upcoming entries are mainly focused on the Flat with Neverbeen To Paris a possible runner at Nottingham next Tuesday.  He was below par at Pontefract last time, but would be right in the mix if he could bounce back to the form that saw him finish runner-up over this 1m6f trip at Yarmouth on his penultimate start.  He also has the option of going back over hurdles at Bangor when jump racing resumes the following week.
WARRANTY
On the back of three creditable runs, Warranty will bid to continue his good Flat campaign with entries at Beverley (Thursday) and Pontefract (Sunday) next week.  He was a fine second at Pontefract earlier in the season, but a return to Beverley is very interesting as it would see him back over the same course and distance where he gained his sole success to date last July.
NUMBERONESON
Numberoneson is a horse who hasn’t yet clicked over hurdles so we may explore the option of going back on the Flat with him.  A winner over 1m2f on his final start for Joseph O’Brien last summer, a race over that trip at Windsor on Monday 16th is a possibility.
PARISIAN AFFAIR
Parisian Affair is entered for an amateur handicap hurdle at Stratford on Thursday 19th August, and whilst it would mean dropping back nearly a mile in trip following her debut for the yard at Worcester, the way she travelled on that occasion suggests it could well suit.
SIR SHOLOKHOV
We have a couple of potential options for Sir Sholokhov on Tuesday 24th August at Bangor.  He has enjoyed a nice break since coming up short in his bid for the hat-trick at Ludlow in May and we have the choice of races over 2½m or 3m if deciding to start him back at the Welsh track.
