Wedding Bells

28-07-2017

THIS WEEK Wedding bells have been rung and after a bit of well earned rest all round we're back and it's all systems go.  Having had a full Spring clean most of the stables are now filled with horses and we're ready to set sail into the new season...   REPORTS Ritasun finished 5th on his second hurdle start at Stratford earlier in the month.  It was a muddling affair and nobody wanted to make the running, so Rita set off in front.  He was very keen and jumped untidily on his first try over the rubber hurdles, but after being briefly headed he led the field turning for home.  His early exertions took their toll in the latter stages, eventually weakening to finish 5th. Tangoed started off The Harry Whittington Racing Clubs' new season campaign nicely when finishing a very promising 3rd at Southwell on yard debut.  She sat in a handy position under jockey Harry Bannister and travelled very well throughout the contest.  As the field turned into the straight Tangoed looked the main challenger to leader Fingareeta, but she couldn’t quicken as well as the leader.  She showed a likeable performance though and stayed on well to finish 3rd.  This was only her 2nd start and there is lots more to come from her.  Shares in the Harry Whittington Racing Club are still available please see below for further details on how to join. Charlie Papa Lima finished 3rd on his latest start at Stratford on Sunday.  He set off to make the running on this drop back in trip, but a slow jump at the first put him on the back foot.  His jumping was far more untidy than last time out at Southwell and this meant he didn’t travel as sweetly.  He still turned down the far side in contention but couldn’t quicken with the leaders, eventually staying on in the closing stages for 3rd.  He ran another solid race and his turn is just around the corner. ENTRIES Ritasun is set to have his 3rd hurdle start at Worcester on Tuesday or Market Rasen next Sunday.  He has come out of his Stratford race well and is ready to go again.  We will switch tactics and ride him more patiently than last time and give him the best chance to settle.  If he can run to his Fakenham form he should run well. Until next time...
