23rd March - Huntingdon & Taunton
Five runners today.
Kaphumor has been disappointing in his three runs this season after winning a point to point prior to being purchased by The Million In Mind syndicate.
He hated the ground last time out at Hereford so I’m hoping the switch to fences and the better conditions today will bring about the necessary improvement.
Kaphumor is a pretty lazy horse at home but he does work well, which makes him even more infuriating.
He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Feodora has run perfectly well in her two races this season without being exciting and I feel she will fare better now that she is handicapped and on this better ground.
Feodora is from a decent pedigree with plenty of stamina in there so this step up in trip shouldn’t be a problem.
Feodora is a very honest mare who is straightforward to deal with.
She will be ridden by Jamie Bargary.
Brian has plenty of ability but he has a mind of his own therefore he is fairly frustrating on a racecourse.
He will enjoy this ground and with Kai’s ten pound claim you never know but I think he’ll be better off once he has a handicap mark.
Brian is very cheeky at home, he’s naughty to ride but he’s not nasty with it.
Monkey has run perfectly well in defeat on his last two outings after winning at Fontwell first time out, which was a real gritty, staying performance.
Monkey prefers good ground so he’s not run since January, he’s been in good order at home lately.
Monkey is another cheeky horse who can be playful to ride, he’s lazy in his work but enjoys his schooling.
He will be ridden by Aidan Coleman.
Rainbow is a bonny little horse who should get this trip if he settles ok.
This will be his first run in a handicap and he’s also benefiting from Kai’s ten pound claim.
Rainbow is a very honest horse who is kind and easy to deal with.
Le Boulevardier and Rainbow Storm will be ridden by Kai Lenihan.
Kaphumor is looked after by Kai Lenihan, he is ridden at home by Lenka Helmecka and he will be led up by Jan Soldan who looks after and will also lead up Feodora, she is ridden at home by Emma Chugg.
Le Boulevardier is looked after, ridden at home and he will be led up by Lenka Helmecka.
Monkey Puzzle is looked after, will be led up and he is ridden at home by Beth Dutton.
Rainbow Storm is looked after by Jan Soldan, he is ridden at home by Amy Deans and he will also be led up by Lenka.
