Huntingdon- 2 runners

Cashanova was ridden by Mitchell Bastyan in the 2m3½f (2m3f137y) FMCG “National Hunt” Novices’ Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) (4yo+ 0-105) and he  really did not enjoy the ground at all, he tired very quickly in it, but he needed the run and hopefully in another 3-4 weeks it might start to dry up!!

“The Mighty Don” ran in the 3m1f (3m1f10y) Pertemps Network Group Handicap Hurdle (Series Qualifier) (Class 2) (5yo+), he ran very well, he coped with the step up in trip, he definitely prefers better ground but got through it and ran a cracker to finish 2nd.  Leighton Aspell gave him a brilliant ride.  He just made a tired mistake at the last hurdle.    We will look for another race for him in a few weeks, because he still needs to go up in the handicap to qualify for Cheltenham.  he is no doubt a special horse with plenty of ability.  Louise and Lucy his glamorous owners and all the team are thrilled.
