START AS WE MEAN TO GO ON

22-09-2017

THIS WEEK We kicked off the week as we meant to go on with a brilliant run from Guiding Stars on Monday, who finished a close 2nd at Worcester on just his second racecourse appearance.  Since then we've been entering more horses as the activity starts to increase.  So as the nights draw in and the winter approaches we're limbering up for the season ahead... REPORTS Guiding Stars produced a much improved performance to finish 2nd at Worcester on Monday.  He was ridden off the pace and settled far better than he did on racecourse debut.  The race started to develop turning for home and Guiding cruised stylishly into contention, making his way to the front in a matter of strides.  He found lots for pressure and picked up from the majority of the field but was stalked all the way by favourite Hatcher.  Hatcher got a length up on Guiding Stars but he battled all the way to the line to finish 9 lengths clear of the 3rd.  This was a huge step in the right direction and he should only improve from here. Regal Gait finished down the field on his return from a break at Chelmsford yesterday.  He broke ok out of a nice draw in stall 4 and found himself in mid division.  He didn't travel from an early stage and when the field turned for home he started to lose positions, eventually finishing 13th.  On post race examination we found he'd broken a blood vessel.  He will be given some time before switching his sights to hurdles next. ENTRIES Court Out will be making his first appearance in a bumper at Newton Abbot this afternoon.  With just the 6 horses declared it looks a fairly open contest.  He's a straight forward horse whose taken time to mature physically and mentally, hence why he wasn't seen last season.  We look forward to seeing him make his debut on the track today and learning more about him. Salto Chisco has multiple entries in the coming days and the first of those is at Perth on Thursday.  He showed a lot of guts when winning at Newton Abbot last time out and still looks reasonably handicapped over hurdles and fences.  He ran a blinder at Perth against a very progressive horse earlier in the summer and granted better ground and a decent pace, he should be very competitive once again. Until next week...
