15th December – Stable News

 

Today we had one runner at Hereford.  “Notre Ami” ran in the 1:45Hereford15 Dec 2018 Jump Into A George Smith Horsebox Novices’ Chase (Class 3) (4yo+) (2m8yds) 2m Soft 10 fences 2 omitted 1st £9,748.20 2nd £2,879.80 3rd £1,439.90 4th £720.72 5th £360.36 6th £350.  James Davies took the ride and he finished a credible 3rd in tough conditions.  Last time out “Notre Ami” owned by “The Morpheus partnership’ had a run over hurdles just to give him confidence because the time before that he suffered a horrible rotational fall.  So today ( back over fences) was all about a clear round of jumping and building his confidence.  James was very pleased with him and the ground was quite tricky, they were all slipping and sliding a bit and he did make a couple of mistakes.  On the whole we were very pleased with his run, he showed and good attitude, he just needs to brush up on his jumping a bit and keep maturing.  He has come out of the race fine and we look forward to his next run.  :”Notre Ami was led up by “Andrew Tony Veale ” our head lad.
