6th November Stable News

 

 

 

A very disappointing start to Swift Natives campaign, she was very nervous in the pre-parade ring and got herself in quite a state.  It took both Nick and Andrew to lead her round and try and keep her calm.  She almost jumped Leighton out of the saddle at the first jump and was just incredibly green.  Racing can be like this sometimes as many of you know , one minute everyone is on a high, then the next we are scratching our heads.

One thing for sure is that she is better than that, she did pull up twice in P2P’s in Ireland before winning a hot contest P2P of 20 runners.  The second horse out of this P2P was bought by Willie Mullins and has since come out and won a bumper.  So we know she has ability.  May be she just needs to learn to settle and it will take her a few outings to get the hang of it.  She is a lovely mare at home and I am sure we can just draw a line through today.
