Two runners today.
3.20pm Paseo is returning to fences today, he’s always jumped well but he didn’t seem to enjoy chasing last time we tried, we didn’t pursue it on that occasion but horses can change and his schooling has been good so we’ll see.
Paseo has become a little bit frustrating so if he does take to fences he’ll find life a lot easier.
Paseo is a character at home, he’s cheeky but there’s no harm in him.
He will be ridden by Daryl Jacob.
6.35pm Nazwa ran ok on his debut over hurdles at Stratford, he appeared to not quite get home but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt because he blew quite hard afterwards. He does take a lot of work and that was only his second ever race so he’s entitled to improve, he seemed to enjoy the experience so we’ll see.
Nazwa only had one run on the flat before refusing to go into the stalls, they tried everything to change his mind but he wouldn’t have it so he was sent to Neardown to try his hand at jumping.
When he arrived here he was quite grumpy and miserable and jibbed a lot going to the gallops and schooling ground, now he seems to enjoy life and apart from being a bit lazy at times he’s perfectly honest in his work and jumping.
Nazwa is entered in the Goffs Doncaster sales next week as his owner doesn’t really have many jumpers.
I wanted to get another run into him to see if there’s any improvement (of which I’m hopeful there could be) which can only add to his value.
He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Paseo is looked after and ridden at home by Amy Deans, he will be led up by Shannon Pasotti.
Nazwa is looked after by Lenka Helmecka, he is ridden at home by Beth Dutton and he will be led up by Marcel Danihel.
