THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM…

15-10-2021

HWR WEEKLY NEWS
It's been a quiet week mostly filled with the team praying for some rain.  We thought we got lucky 2 weeks ago but the drizzle was just a tease.  More rain means more schooling on the grass and more declarations. So we might as well enjoy the calm before the storm...

REPORTS
TORIGNI
We stepped Torigni up to 2m3½f for his return to action in the Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow on Saturday, a race that attracted it’s usual competitive field.  Held up towards the rear, he managed to squeeze up the inside to move into a promising position as the 17 runners turned for home, but having been asked for more jumping three out, he was unable to sustain his effort and weakened away to finish mid-div.  He schooled well over fences the other day so he has the option to switch novice handicap chasing now which may bring about the improvement.
ENTRIES
BREAKING WAVES
Runner-up on his return from a break at Warwick last month, Breaking Waves will attempt to go one better at Market Rasen tomorrow when he lines up in the 2m4½f handicap hurdle.  He will be stepping back up in class, but the handicapper has only raised him 1lb following his excellent comeback and he should give another good account with conditions to suit.
WARRANTY
Warranty has run well at Pontefract on a couple of occasions this Flat season and holds an entry in the course’s Phil Bull Trophy Conditions Stakes on Monday.  He would be wrong at the weights with all seven of his potential rivals in a race named after the founder of Timeform, but in what is set to be a small field, he is guaranteed to pick up some prize money and you’ve got to be in it to win it!
DOCPICKEDME
Docpickedme made a promising reappearance when third at Newton Abbot last month and we’re looking forward to sending him chasing now with that run under his belt.  A former Irish point winner, the switch to fences coupled with a step up to three miles is expected to really suit and a novice handicap chase over that trip at Worcester next Wednesday could be a lovely starting point.
SEDDON
We may also be represented at Fontwell the same afternoon with Seddon a possible to return from injury at the West Sussex venue. Limited to just the one start for us last season, the plan is to go back over hurdles and he is a horse who can hopefully run in some of the better handicaps this winter.
FAIRE PART SIVOLA
The following day could see Faire Part Sivola, a new recruit to the yard, make his stable debut, having been entered in the 2m1f handicap hurdle up at Carlisle.  We are still finding out about him, but he shows a bit of speed at home and is potentially well handicapped on the pick of his form.

REHOMING UPDATE
Numberoneson recently left us to join his new owner and forever home in Tetbury. We are happy to report that he is thoroughly enjoying his holiday and will start retraining in November. We wish them luck and happiness for the future!
OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY
We have a good looking 3yo son of Champs Elysees on sale currently, either as a whole or in a small partnership potentially.  He is out of a black type Mare (Romantic Fashion) and having been purchased earlier in the summer he has been broken in and ridden away here at Hill Barn Stables. He is a strong, good moving type that carries himself very well and stands at about 16:2. He is clean of his wind and has a very likeable attitude. Please get in touch for further details or to arrange a viewing: info@harrywhittington.co.uk
