19th January – Stable News

Just one runner and one winner at Ascot today in the 12:40Ascot19 JAN 2019RTV1m7½f (1m7f152y) Rosling King Juvenile Hurdle (Novices’ Championship Hurdle Series Qualifier) (Class 3) (4yo). Belargus was given a patient ride by Leighton Aspell for JP McManus. This was his third run for the yard, he is very free in his races and Leighton tried to settle him out the back and then crept through the race to win very well. A very pleasing run and brilliant to have another good Saturday win for the yard. A very exciting prospect for the future and we are forever grateful for the support of JP sending us this very nice, extremely good looking horse. Izzy Mills rides Belargus at home. A great day and great win for Team Gifford.
