A great win for Minella Whisper
A great win for Minella Whisper yesterday at Huntingdon. Given a fine ride by Danny Hiskett, he travelled well behind the leader until the straight, before taking it up at the second last and going on to win in fine style by three lengths.
He jumped superbly throughout and will make a nice staying chaser for his wonderfully enthusiastic owner, Lizzie Prowting.
It was great that Lizzie and Hannah were present to see his victory and many thanks to them for sending such a nice horse to us at Adlestrop. Hopefully there will be a lot more fun to be had with him.
Two runners tomorrow at Warwick. Totterdown runs in the two mile novice hurdle and will hopefully relax a bit better than he has been in his races. Having been second in a bumper for us, he definitely has the ability to win races, especially when on some better ground.
Celestial Magic steps up in trip in the two mile five handicap hurdle. He has always been staying on in his races and although he has run over a similar trip before, it was on faster ground. Hopefully this run will not come too close to his recent Towcester effort. Danny Hiskett rides both.
