It was another good performance from CARLOS DU FRUITIER to win the 2m3f Novice Hurdle at Wetherby. It was a race that looked to have a few decent types in it but not a lot of strength in depth. This was very much apparent with the first two drawing well clear in the closing stages. He showed plenty of guts and determination to win by a length from 'Jammin Masters', who is a well-regarded horse of Warren Greatrex. CARLOS jumped very well throughout and was just a bit tight at the last which meant he had to pull out all the stops. He quite clearly had come on for his run at Huntingdon when he was second and is a horse Daryl likes a lot. We will look for a race in 5 weeks or so and you may see him step up in grade rather than carry a penalty as he is not the biggest. It certainly has a very jolly group of owners who made themselves heard on the track and I hope their heads are not too sore this morning!!
RACING CLUB RUNNERS
It is another exciting week ahead for the racing club. BARDISTA looks like he will run at Exeter on Tuesday. He is a horse that has turned inside out since joining us and his work has got better and better. He is a fabulous jumper and his future is defiantly over fences but I believe he will be up to running very nicely over hurdles as well. UNCLE PERCY is back working away really well and is not far away from his next run at Huntingdon in the middle of the month. These are two cracking horses that I am sure will be visiting the winner's enclosure this season. There are still some shares left in this very exciting Racing Club and it is a fantastic way to get into racehorse ownership and experience the thrill of being an owner.
