Latest runners & entries
Our ex horses continue to run well at Mick Channons.
Ballypatrick was just touched off (short head) at Huntingdon on Thursday and Warden Hill ran a lovely first race over hurdles at Doncaster (finished 4th) in a very hot Novice hurdle. He jumped all the hurdles as though they were fences and will make a super chaser in time but well able to win some nice hurdle races first.
Viva Steve ran a cracker to be 2nd at Towcester last week (his first ever hurdle) and he too will be a smashing chaser.
Calgary Bay goes to Warwick on Saturday in a 2m 4f Handicap Chase. I hope he runs well but the ground is still soft which does not suit him. His aim is the Topham Trophy at Aintree 2m 6f (National fences) in April.
Somersby is very well and due to run next Saturday in the Ascot Chase over 2m 5f. It will be interesting to see how he tackles the extra 2 furlongs there.
