Master Vintage ran with credit at Taunton

Master Vintage ran with credit today in the two mile handicap hurdle at Taunton.  Despite the testing ground conditions, he stayed on well to finish fifth in a competitive event.  Now he has learned to settle better, we will step him up in trip on his next outing.

Sheelbewhatsheelbe travelled and jumped beautifully until half a mile from home in the closing handicap hurdle.  Ian Popham thought that he was in with every chance until turning for home and possibly we should try her in a tongue tie on better ground.

Great to see Top Notch win the Peterborough Chase at Taunton today.  Although not the biggest, it just goes to show that smaller athletes can find it easier to jump fences than larger ones – Red Rum being the perfect example.  Looking forward to Top Notch winning many more races.
