Roderic Narrowly Denied Win Number 6

After plenty of winners throughout June and July, we have had a slightly frustrating run of places through August so far but hopefully that will change in the next couple of weeks! Stable star of 2016 has certainly been SIR RODERIC with five wins to his name but he put up a career best to finish runner-up on ground quicker than ideal at Newmarket last Saturday. This takes his prize money to over £33,000 and his handicap mark has now hit 97 – a whole 30lb higher than when he started the season. Some nice races will be targeted in the autumn where he should get his favoured ease in the ground. We had another second at Bath with RAJADAMRI on Wednesday evening, the horse on his best behaviour having flipped in the stalls on his previous start. Staying ten furlongs opens up further options for the three year old. On the same evening GO AMBER GO returned to form when just losing out in a three-way photo to finish third. APACHE SONG returned from a short break to finish third at Windsor while BIOTIC ran well in the amateur race to finish third at Sandown. While MASTER CARPENTER again picked up plenty of prize money when finishing fifth in the Group 3 Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury, taking his earnings to over £30,000 this... read more

Hawridge Steps Up To A Mile

August looks set to be a busy month and we have three runners in action on Tuesday. METTE has been off the track a long time through various setbacks but she is a lovely looking filly and hopefully she can build on this return in due course. BLACKDOWN WARRIOR has been disappointing since finishing second at Bath but hopefully a step up to a mile might suit and he will enjoy the soft ground. HAWRIDGE GLORY has improved with each run as he has stepped up in trip and a mile in nursery company should enable him to go close at Nottingham. On Wednesday, GO AMBER GO faces just five rivals as she bids for her third success of the year at Bath and off a 3lb higher mark for her Ffos Las success, she has every chance. She is joined by AZURE AMOUR who has had a slightly disappointing season but is now well handicapped and has won at Bath last season so shouldn’t be too far... read more

Now Five For Roderic and Three in a Week For Yard

Well the horses have remained in cracking form with three winners in a week taking us to sixteen winners for the year and over £123,000 in prize money so far. Have to start off with the stable star SIR RODERIC who made it five wins for the year in impressive fashion at Sandown this evening. Once again the rain came in time for him but there was no pace and he ended up getting badly boxed in with just over two furlongs to go as the race developed into a sprint. However, he still showed a smart turn of foot to hit the front and as usual had his ears pricked entering the final fifty yards to win comfortably once again. It’s hard to know where the improvement will stop on soft ground, he has already gone up 23lb and although he will face much harder tasks we hope he can win again, especially as he is beginning to get quite a following. While PRESENT ACCEPTED is the complete opposite as he needs fast ground and despite having a summer jumping campaign in mind, he’s had to miss numerous targets due to the wet weather. He was finally able to run again at Stratford on Sunday, where he jumped with fluency unlike most of his fifteen rivals. He hit the front three from home and despite idling, he never looked like getting beat. He still has a very low handicap mark and as long as he finds some fast ground, his winning run shouldn’t come to an end in the near future. GO AMBER GO has been slow to... read more
