20th December - Whatsupwithyou and Cavok provided Ben with a welcome double
Whatsupwithyou won the eventmasters.co.uk Maiden Hurdle at Ascot for his owner Co-foundations Ltd. David Bass gave him a fantastic, expertly timed ride. He has made the perfect start to his hurdling career, taking the inside line and jumping brilliantly throughout the race. He coped with the testing conditions very well and stayed on brilliantly to win this strong maiden hurdle convincingly by 3.5 lengths.
Cavok won the Richard Winterton Auctioneers Novices' Handicap Chase at Uttoxeter under Luca Morgan for her owner Mrs Carrie Zetter-Wells. This was Cavok’s season and chasing debut. Cavok won her Irish Point to Point on heavy ground so we knew she would be able to cope with the conditions. Luca Morgan gave her an excellent ride taking on the leader two out and seeing off the favourites challenge.
