Celestial Magic falls at the first!
On the way back from Ludlow where Bella’s Vision travelled well in the straight in the bumper, only to fade quite tamely three furlongs out. Very frustrating as she works nicely at home and looks in great nick. Hopefully we can find the key to her as she is from a nice family, although sometimes quirky.
Pleased to report Celestial Magic seems fine today after his first fence fall at Southwell yesterday. Having schooled very well at home, he completely fluffed his lines at the first fence, giving himself and Danny Hiskett a nasty fall.
Unfortunately Danny has a broken collarbone and will be out for a while. All very annoying as he had some nice rides coming up.
We will see how Celestial Magic comes out of the race before deciding whether to go back over fences or hurdles but he is a tough type and hopefully he will be back to decent form soon.
