24th May - Ludlow
2.20pm - Francolin runs in a maiden hurdle over 2m 5f.
Colin has been a work in progress, he’s a very keen horse who thinks he’s faster than he is. He basically wants three miles but until he learns to relax he won’t get home.
Colin has run ok in his first two hurdle races, relaxing more with each outing, this is a step up in trip today so I hope he continues in the same vein.
We have schooled Colin over fences and he was very good, I wanted to give him one more run over hurdles for experience and then he will go chasing.
Colin is a tall good looking horse who is strong on the gallops but easy to deal with in other ways.
He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Francolin will be led up by Mila Lunackova.
