2nd October - Fontwell
Two runners today at Fontwell but if the stormy forecast is correct they will not run.
12:30 Le Boulervardier also known as Brian at home and he has run well in three bumpers to date, I think he became bored in that sphere and his schooling has always been very good, he enjoys it and it and he’s a very natural jumper.
He’s a horse with ability but he is a bit of a playboy, he needs to knuckle down and become a racehorse.
Brian as you can imagine is a bit of a boy at home, Lenka does a good job with him because he often has a buck and a kick, he’ll spook at everything and even though he’s a plonker at times she loves him.
3:55pm Volturnus only had one run for us last season when finishing a creditable fourth at Ffos Las, he picked up an injury subsequently and this is his first run since.
Volturnus works nicely at home, as a result he does everything so easily so he will definitely improve for this outing.
He’s a horse that schools well and will go on to make a chaser.
Volturnus is a laid back individual at home and he’s easy to deal with.
They will be ridden by Brendan Powell.
Le Boulevardier is looked after and ridden at home by Lenka Helmecka.
Volturnus is looked after by Kai Lenihan who also usually rides him, Kai is away at the Racing school this week so Lenka will lead up both horses.
