27th November - Hereford
Ventura was a decent soft ground horse on the flat before joining me but he’s been pretty disappointing so far over hurdles.
Ventura isn’t the scopiest of jumpers but he can get from a to b perfectly efficiently, he’s a sweet horse but he probably saves a bit for himself on a racecourse after having a busy flat career.
Ventura is a very easy horse to deal with at home, good to ride and very kind in his stable.
Brummie ran perfectly well in his only race to date, a bumper at Wincanton when he finished third.
Brummie looked very green that day, he has an old fashioned jumping pedigree and he is definitely a long term prospect.
Brummie has taken a while to get his jumping together, he’s got a good jump in him but he was sloppy initially, he’s had a couple of sessions with Yogi Breisner and plenty of practice on Mandown.
Brummie has ability, he has the make and shape of a staying chaser.
Brummie is fairly easy to deal with though he can have his moments, which is not unlike Flemensfirth’s as youngsters.
They will be ridden by Leighton Aspell.
Ventura is looked after, will be led and is ridden at home by Mila Lunackova.
Brummie is looked after and will be led up by Nikola Studena, he is ridden at home by various people.
