30th January - Fontwell
Bembridge ran out through the wing at Southwell on his previous run in the autumn, it was completely out of character for him he’s never even looked at a wing before and he regularly leads when schooling.
He has schooled every week since and he’s been fine so maybe it was just a case of something catching his eye and hopefully it will end up being a one off.
Bembridge is a horse with plenty of ability who will make up into an even better chaser, he has been mentally immature to train which is why he’s still over hurdles for now to gain some more racing experience.
We’ve been waiting for some better ground for him but he will probably handle softer conditions when he’s a bit stronger.
Bembridge is a kind horse to deal with and good to ride, although he can be keen at times.
He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke.
Bembridge is looked after and will be led up by Marcel Danihel, he is ridden at home by Tara Moore.
