Three runners today at Fakenham.

12.50pm Briery Bunny runs in a mares novice hurdle over 2m.
Bunny comes from the good family of Briery Queen and Briery Fox bred by her owners Simon and Helen Plumbly, they have had a lot of fun with them and plenty of success.
Bunny has run ok in both her races to date without setting the world alight, she is a mare that will keep improving with racing and her jumping is very good but most importantly she enjoys it. She’s a feisty filly and there is no way you could make her do anything she doesn’t want to do, I’m told other members of her family are similar in nature but also tough and honest.

Bunny is a nightmare to tack up as soon as you walk into the stable she wants to kill you and Amy and Jan, who normally ride her out, have to bribe her with polos just to get her to come to the door and be caught. Once she’s out in the string she’s fine, although I still wouldn’t trust her back legs.

She will be ridden by Tom Garner.

1.50pm Enjoy Responsibly runs in a handicap chase over 2m 5f.
Enjoy has won twice around here before over this distance.
Enjoy ran well on his reappearance this season when a fast finishing third at Hereford last month, he’s always shown better form left handed so this was a very good run and he came back from it full of beans.
Enjoy is the most fantastic jumper, he eats fences and we would love to get him to Aintree for The Topham in the spring, obviously we want Harry to be able to ride him but he needs another couple of winners over fences in order to be able to do that.

Enjoy is a busy horse at home to ride, he’s honest, enthusiastic and eager to please.

2.20pm Working Class runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m.
WC showed good form last season but was very much a work in progress due to him being so keen in his races, he had to be held up and ridden for a turn of foot when in actual fact all he does is gallop.
He has been disappointing in both of his races this season but he wasn’t right after his Ludlow run, nothing came to light but we just weren’t happy with him at home.
Then he didn’t handle the rain softened ground last time at Exeter, it was a situation where it rained non stop on the day and it just didn’t suit him.

I’m hoping for a better show today, but he will have to settle in order to fulfil his promise.

WC is a sweet horse at home, very easy to ride and a kind person to deal with.

They will be ridden by Harry Beswick.

Bunny is looked after by Jan Soldan who shares riding her out with Amy Deans.
He will lead her and Enjoy up.
Enjoy is looked after by Jan Soldan, he is ridden at home by Andy Llewellyn.
Working Class is looked after and will be led up by Jana Stefanova, he is ridden at home by Harry.
