STARTING AS WE MEAN TO GO ON…

19-05-2017

THIS WEEK Having set sail into the new season recently we're delighted to notch up a nice winner this week with the British Racing Club owned Salto Chisco.  Meantime the other horses in training are also finishing in the placings, whilst all the others are out in the fields relaxing on their summer holidays! REPORTS Jack Bear made a pleasing return from a break to finish 9th at Newton Abbot last Wednesday.  Jack shaped far better than his eventual finishing position, towing the field along for much of the contest under a positive ride from Harry Bannister.  He produced his best jumping display to date and had much of the field on the stretch jumping 3 out.  Coming to 2 out he tired, eventual coming home in midfield.  It was a very pleasing return and he will come on a lot for the run.  He should have a very productive summer under both codes. Pasaka Boy ran a great race to finish 3rd on his yard debut at Kempton on Monday.  The race was run at a strong pace throughout and after a couple of careful jumps; he got into a good rhythm.  He started to make ground coming to 3 out but over jumped, almost unshipping jockey Harry Bannister in the process.  The pair got back on an even keel and stayed on well up the straight to grab 3rd in the shadow if the post.  It was a pleasing debut and he can only improve from here.  He’s an exciting addition to the team. Salto Chisco showed a fantastic attitude to get his head in front at Kempton on Monday.  He travelled nicely on his drop back to 2m under Harry Bannister and jumped very tidily.  He came to 2 out with every chance, but got knocked sideways by the fall of Black Buble.  His chance looked to have gone coming to the last but he picked up 4 places to take the lead in the dying strides.  It was a great performance from Salto and he should be able continue to progress over the smaller obstacles moving forwards. Charlie Papa Lima finished a good 2nd on hurdles debut at Southwell on Tuesday.  He jumped off in mid field and was measured at his obstacles in the early stages.  There was very little pace on which didn't suit, but when he got some light down the back straight, his jumping improved and he moved nicely into contention.  He picked up well to get onto the heels of the leader Bach de Clermont, but could never get on terms with him, so stayed on nicely to finish 2nd.  It was a nice debut, especially considering the trip was on the short side and the ground was too soft for him.  He can only go on from here. ENTRIES Benefit of Luck is set to make his handicap debut at Huntingdon on Tuesday.  He has progressed with every run in novice hurdles and now has the opportunity to start in handicaps.  He is entered over 2m 4f and 3m, so we can have a look at the 2 races before deciding which one will suit better.  He is growing up all the time and granted some luck in running, he should show up well.  The right handed track should also suit him. Until next time...
