Two runners on Boxing Day
Two runners on Boxing Day at Huntingdon, with Minella Whisper and Totterdown.
The former runs in the 2 ½ mile novice hurdle with Nick Schofield onboard. Having had a wind operation in the summer, we are keen to find as good a ground as possible to run him. He is a big, attractive horse and will be better over fence having won a point to point in Ireland and handicap chases look to be his forte.
Totterdown runs in bumper with Richard Condon onboard claiming seven pounds. Richie has ridden out for us in the past and will hopefully be able to settle Totterdown, as he is quite a hard pulling type. He has shown promise in both his bumpers and although this is another competitive one, hopefully the experience will do him good before he goes hurdling in the New Year.
We have decided to give Kempton a miss with Muthabir as the race looked competitive and the ground looks to be on the soft side. He has been entered at Doncaster next Friday instead.
Wishing a Merry Christmas and a successful New Year to all.
