26th December- Stable News






Happy Christmas to all two legged and four legged friends. I hope you all had a great day yesterday and are ready for a great days racing. Today we have a busy day with five runners at Fontwell.

We have two runners in the 2m3f (2m3f49y) Southern Cranes And Access Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle. Jebs Gamble will be ridden by Conor Ring. Jebs Gamble is a gutsy horse who always try hard, he was second last time out and we are looking for another good run. He is a 6 year old gelding by “Dubai Destination” owned by Mrs C. Gamble, JEB & Mrs R. Gifford. On paper he has Oskar Denarius to beat and Be Daring is also an interesting runner as he has dropped down the handicap . He should be fine with the ground and trip.

Alka Step also runs in this race, he will be ridden by Charlie Hammond. Alka Step is a stunning grey 6 year old gelding by “Alkaadhem” from Ireland. He is owned by Mr J E Burrows Mrs V C Burrows. He is a chaser in the making, this is a step up in trip for him. He jumps like a chaser and we are looking for a clear round and positive run. He won a P2P in Ireland.

Then we have a new recruit “Canyouringmeback” who runs in the “2m1½f (2m1f162y) James Todd Novices’ Hurdle. He will be ridden by Conor Ring. Canyouringmeback is a 5 year old gelding by “Robin des Pres” he is owned by Terry McKeever. “Sparky” as we call him at home won and was placed in P2P in Ireland and we love him. He would probably prefer better ground but does go on this ground. He is a quite buzzy/speedy horse so we are excited to see his first run.

Then in the 2pm 2m2f (2m1f165y) Southern Cranes And Training Division Handicap Chase we have our stable star “Brown Bear” who will be ridden by Leighton Aspell. Brown Bear is a stunning 6 year old gelding by “Yeats” owned by ” The bear necessities ” partnership. He has top weight and we are looking for a true Brown Bear run. He is on great form at home. Fingers crossed.

Our last runner is “Notre Ami” who runs in the 2m1½f (2m1f162y) Winner Plant And Access Handicap Hurdle. “Notre Ami” is a 6 year old gelding by Kalanisi owned by “The Morpheus Partnership” This is his first run in a handicap, he is a lovely horse and will be chaser in time. We are looking for a good run, he also will be ridden by Conor Ring.

Good Luck to all and a huge Thank you to our incredible team that work so hard over the festive season to make this all happen.
