(Class 5) (0-100, 4yo+) (2m5f164yds) 2m5½f Good 11 hurdles. Leighton Aspell rode him and had him handy all the way, he was two lengths clear when he jumped the last , he jumped right and then pecked on landing and unseated Leighton. Such a shame. However this is racing and there are so many positives to take out of the race, he liked the ground and step up in trip. He was much more relaxed at the races and saddling up, he has learnt much more to trust us and was so much more settled in the parade ring. He is still bit green in running and definitely was a bit idle/lacking in concentration when in front with the noise of the horses behind him. So much to look forward to with this lovely horse, still young and a bit green, but very honest horse that is improving all the time.
