09/12/19 Weekly Runners review.
Laurie Come On improved on his first outing over hurdles and he is going the right way.
There was no gallop early on so when they quickened out of the back straight he got caught flat footed before running on again to the line, he’s definitely one for the long term but there’s no reason why he couldn’t pick up a hurdle en route to a chasing career.
No No Juliet won nicely in conditions that suited her perfectly, she loves heavy ground.
She jumped well and stayed on strongly from two out.
Juliet is a mare that races slightly behind the bridle so she usually finishes her races well and she would stay even further than this.
Seaston Spirit finally got his act together over fences and he was another that won easily, in a fairly lowly handicap.
Seaston loves heavy ground and now he’s regained his confidence over the larger obstacles there’s no reason why he shouldn’t follow up in similar conditions as long as the handicapper doesn’t get too carried away.
Broughton’s Rhythm didn’t get the trip, plain and simple.
I thought he would find it easier over further, he travelled nicely and got into the race turning into the home straight before fading.
I’ll drop him back in distance.
Castlegrace Rose was disappointing again and she finished distressed, there is obviously a problem and she will now have a more thorough examination of her wind.
She recovered perfectly well within half an hour and happily went out in the paddock the following day and was as bright as a button.
Mr Dorrell Sage also stopped quickly, he will have his wind checked to see if there is anything further that can be done.
Aintree Sammy Bill obviously delighted with him, he’s improving with every run.
He was more relaxed this time but still needs to chill a bit more, despite a couple of novicey moments his jumping was very good.
Dominateur he’s making up into a decent staying chaser and his jumping will improve, he can be a bit flippant so perhaps another session with Yogi Breisner might help him.
He is a funny horse because you think he’s going nowhere and then bingo one good jump and he’s up there without any effort at all.
Tarada I was absolutely delighted especially when you think it was only his fourth ever race and only his third run over obstacles so to see him going toe to toe upsides in front made the old heart go a bit.
His jumping was a bit novicey early on but Leighton was happy with him and said he’ll become a very good jumper.
Weststreet was obviously disappointing, that’s not really him.
He did get into all sorts of traffic problems, which you do when being held up in those type of races, and he was fine afterwards.
We’ll just put a line through it and move on.
