April 13th - Southwell
runner today at Southwell
4.55pm Le Boulevardier runs in a novice handicap hurdle over 2m 4f.
After an inauspicious start over obstacles Brian has finally settled into the role of a jumper and he has become more professional over his obstacles both at home and on a racecourse.
I’ve been dying to step him up in trip as I think all he does is gallop so this extra half a mile should help him.
Brian is a horse with ability but he does have a mind of his own and he was pretty naughty in his races after his bumper debut, I do think he has turned a corner though and even though he’s still cheeky at home he’s really enjoying his schooling nowadays and fingers crossed he might give a better account today especially over this extra distance.
Brian is a bit of a boy to ride at home, Lenka does a good job with him but for all of his naughtiness there is no harm in him.
He will be ridden by Aidan Coleman.
Le Boulevardier is looked after, ridden at home and he will be led up by Lenka Helmecka.
